The Hulk Extends Stay At Villa

Villa have announced that John Carew has signed a 12 month extension to his current deal.



The Hulk, who has 17 goals in 46 games since moving from Lyon in exchange for Milan Baros, has therefore committed (as much as any contract committs these days) to Villa until June 2011.

Great news for me. If him and Gabby continue playing together they can only improve as a pairing, and with Young and the possible addition of Milner, he shouldn't be too short of service to up his goal tally.

Never sure what contracts mean these days but better than a slap in the face by a wet kipper I'm sure!
The Fear
Legend.

Great news thats he has signed a new contract! On his day, he is a handfull for defender, if he can stay fit throughout the whole season, i reckon he could get 20goals for us!

What better news to put a smile on my face before the big match tonight. Is there still time for MON to announce we've signed Milner before the kick-off..?
Athens Villa
yes I'm pleased with that, I'm not sure about 20 goals a season but with a lot more games this season I'm sure he'll rattle in a few, more importantly his experience will be great for gabby and some of the younger players in the squad.

An vastly underated player and the club has seen a masive inprovment all round since he arived and alot is down to him can`t belive we swoped him for baros lyon must be mad keep it up BIG JOHN legend ........!!!!!!!!!
B6_COMPANY
B6_COMPANY; Obviously big John Carew wasn't the player at Lyon he is now. That has to be down MON's influence. John Carew has the makings to be a legend. Although he has made a big impact at Villa I would still like more goals from him. With the addition of more goals he would indeed be a Legend!
gappy65
looks like he has a injury ... OS omits him from the team tonight with marlon starting

did you mean wet SKIPPER The Fear?
Astonian Villan
gappy65; its just his attitued so good i think the goals will come but we seam to score a lot more since he arived a brillant bloke
B6_COMPANY
Great news if it really means anything in this day and age. He is a big player 4 us just with his attitude, I thought we missed him upfront 2nite.
pksandell
Best target man seen at Villa Park since the great man himself. In fact, at times, the way he plays, holds the ball up, lays it off to others, you'd think that it was Big Peter Withe out there. Cant give JC any greater praise than that.
glensider
We certainly got the better end of the deal with Lyon, sending Baros over there, taking JC in return. I'll bet that to this day they still haven't forgiven us.
glensider
On the subject of Baros, anyone know where he is right now, or what he's up to? Presumably still at Lyon I guess?
