Davies' Season IS Over

Davies' Season IS Over

It has now been confirmed that Curtis Davies will miss the rest of the season after rupturing his Achilles tendon in today's 1-1 (CHEATED) draw against Arsenal.

After his shocking debut against Leicester in the Cup, wherein he labelled himself a 'Pub Player', Davies has been very little short of a revelation since replacing Zat Knight in the centre of defence.

The injury was sustained just before half time, and the player will be undergoing surgery tonight but it's expected he wil be on the sidelines for the next 6 months.

Speaking on the official site, Martin O'Neill said:

'Curtis has ruptured his Achilles tendon and he's going to have an operation tonight. We're really disappointed for him.

'He's been doing really well and that's a sickener. But he'll be back. He misses the rest of the season and it's really cruel because he's been doing splendidly. It would have been nice to have won the game for him.'

The final sentance says everything, but no let's not forget Ref's can't be biased. Which of course just leaves incompetent open as a choice.

cheated? there was 3 minutes of injury time.. and Arsenal scored in the 3rd minute of injury time .. give or take a few seconds. get over urself. Villa deserved to win.,.. no doubt. played very well. But to continue on about being cheated and the ref is getting a bit tired. your beginning to sound like a spud.

Come on Fran, that's got nothing to do with the lads here on Vital Villa. They've got their share of moronic fans and we've got ours, sadly. Condemn those who sang the sickening song all you want, these guys didn't do anything. Davies is a good player and it's a shame for them too. We of all people know what it's like to have a good player out for the season.

Er, actually what I meant to say was that I'm sorry to hear this. He seems a good player and a very honest person. Hope he'll come back for you guys soon.

BITC(H) he is a great defender that has a great future as long as he does not join your lot, as a matter of fact I was a little pi@#ed off when arsene did not splash out for him.

Cheated is the wrong word we were more unfortunate but it didn't have anything to do with any Arsenal player going outside the rules. Get yourself ready for a strong comeback next season Curtis and enjoy Zat showing his comfort in keeping the back line tight.

No more blaming the ref please - it's churlish, and we have no-one but ourselves to blame - we switched off at the end in terms of being unable to defend the first decent cross Arsenal put in all game, and from what I watched we just succumbed to the intense pressure in those last few mins. Definitely harsh, but not all down to the ref i'm afraid.
