'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Boom Boom Bouma Boost

David O'Leary has been handed a Bouma Boost. Which is nice..........!

The Dutch international defender has returned to training and has been pencilled in for the reserves game v Leeds next month.

Bouma has missed two months due to a knee injury in which time Jlloyd Samuel has claimed back his left back position despite the constant provocation from the Villa boo boys. Samuel has again been linked to a 2million move to Charlton Athletic and the way a minority of fans heckle him, I'd not be shocked if he completed the move. (Rant over!).

O'Leary told the official site: 'He'll (Bouma) play in the reserve game against Leeds on March 7 that's the aim for him. We want to get him and Patrik Berger fitter and we're looking for him and definitely Berger to play 90 minutes in that one. I'd expect Bouma to play 90 minutes, but the great thing is that Jlloyd Samuel is doing really well and he holds the shirt and now it's up to Freddie to challenge him for that left-back position.'

Really good news, I think he'll be a really good solid player for us next season. I quite like the sound of Delaney, Mellberg, Cahill and Bouma as a back four.

I understand he's been injured but before that he didn't really impress me. He will have to impress to dislodge Jlloyd.

I think this is good news and hope that Bouma gets the time to prove to us that he is a classy, proven international player, because we have not seen the best of him. I thought he was beginning to show some class in the last couple of games prior to his injury

I hope the rumours that he's unsettled are untrue. I think he's a quality player, who was starting to show his true form prior to the injury set-back.

Bouma is a class player, we will be more stronger down the left when he is back and anything is better than Jloyd
