Gabby Out Of England Match

Gabby Out Of England Match

We were all worried about injuries with such a quiet transfer window, and Gabby is now out of the England match.

The striker was subbed half way through todays match against Fulham after sustaining a hamstring injury. I'm sure we all realise it's unlikely that he will recover quickly, although we should be counting our lucky stars that we now have an international break which should limit the damage.

Martin O'Neill has spoken out on the official site and said that although there is no way Gabby can actually play in the friendly, he is hoping the player can still travel with the England team nontheless.

'Gabby is feeling his hamstring at the moment.

'He came out before the start of the second half to try and see if it was OK. But he was still feeling it.

'There was no point risking it any further.

'I would like him to join up with the full England squad if both medical departments (Villa and England) agree. That would be nice for him but there's no way he can play.'

Today seemed to go from bad to worse, and the cynic in me wants to have it on record I said that selling Cahill would be a mistake, especially if the overriding concern on loaning him again was he couldn't be recalled as Curtis Davies is also crocked.

'Curtis has hurt his knee and we will be assessing it further.'

Have to agree re: Cahill, and as much as i loved the lad at villa i was shattered to see him get MOM for bolton on the weekend. the ******** in me kind of wants to see selling Cahill justified Similar to steven Davis, but i know it wont be. and it typical know that the window has past that our players are starting to drop like flies, as you siad the internationals couldn't have come at a better time, hopfully the injuries are not bad and thats the end of them.

But Cahill was 5th choice at centre back and we only have 1 injury which might not be serious so where does he fit in.

Is it controversial to be thinking that the full England call up for Gabby is too much too soon? He has something like 1 goal in 13 odd games (I really must look it up today) and although he is fast, he hasn't YET got a fast footballers brain. He is a great prospect but in days gone by, you had to be more than a prospect to get the call up didn't you? Same with Curtis Davies, he has only just started playing regularly for us, so how does that get you into the England reckoning? Not being mardy, just if these were players from other teams, would we be so impressed with them being called up? ie without our claret and blue tinted specs?
