    A pity. Two players that I rate. Although Dummy was an acquired taste after a while but he's grown on me.

    Losing both of them is a major blow...

    Both fit in well with our "shape" as they are both prepared to work hard

    They are both more than decent squad players. Those sort you miss.

    Dummy has found a role as back up to the left side cb..

    Willems was finally a proper left wing back and is going to be a big miss...

    Gutted for them both and for us as they are both players we really need. I hope we don't terminate Willems loan deal and sign him instead. We might be able to get him cheaper because of the injury so at least that could be one sort of positive from it. Think we'll struggle to get someone in of his quality now.

    I am a big fan of Willems, but there is no way we should sign him on a permanent at this time...

    We are not a club that can waste money on a player that might not be fit for next season/be the same player...

    Massive shame and I agree we won't replace like for like...

    Yeah to be fair your probably right. I'd like to sign him, get him back to full fitness and hopefully the form he's been in this season. But like you say there's no promising that and he could also become injury prone because of this as it looks a really bad one. A real shame as I think he'd of made a name for himself here.

    Not a chance Ashley will pay his wages anyway now he is injured.
