Martin Laursen Out For A Month?

Aston Villa haven't, as far as I can see, confirmed the reports, but it appears from the newspapers that Villa's defensive rock Martin Laursen could be out for up to a month as he has aggravated an old knee injury.



He picked up the knock in the win over West Ham at Upton Park last Saturday.

Get better soon Laursen, you WILL be greatly missed.

What a blow. He is the rock of our defense and can score as well. Hope this isn't right and he is back sooner.

gutted and chips

just to re-affirm this is in the papers, not confirmed as yet by Villa, so lets hope it is wrong. That said, it is what has been whispered around the place as well as in the press.
The Fear
Bugger. Get well soon mate. I don't doubt that with Martin playing we would've beaten Arsenal last night.

"rock of our defense and can score as well". I do agree, JPF, but we had a damn good deputy rock yesterday (witness that immense last-ditch tackle in our box to deny the Arse), and our deputy rock also scored (and what a goal!). I was really, really proud of our team yesterday. What an amazing man-motivator MoN is. Not many teams would come back from what we did yesterday.

what happened to cuellar?

When's cueller back?
In MON we trust!
tell you what boys you will definitely miss him. Was absolutely superb last year at Anfield and brilliant again this year at Villa. Only 2 players Torres has struggled against and its him and Rio. Good luck for the top 4. O'Neill has made Villa a tough tough team to play now...

Cheers 5 times, it's gonna be a long hard season and dislodging the Arse from the top 4 isn't going to be easy. We're on a decent run at the moment, we HAVE TO keep it going with a win at Hull City to keep the pressure on the goons. And frankly I couldn't give a **** about the FA Cup this season. Let's play the U16's against Gillingham and give the lads an invaluble rest. Come on the Villa!

Zat played better yesterday than I have ever seen Cuellar do. Besides, he gets crucial goals against big clubs, Chelsea last season, and now against Arsenal! I hope Martin is back as soon as possible, but another couple of performances like yesterdays, and Zat must be pushing Curtis for a starting place let alone Cuellar!
villa_de
This is a massive blow. I know Zat did well yesterday but that isn't the point. Laursen is immense and this is a real worry after all his previous injury problems. I guess the most amazing thing is that an injury like this has taken so long coming. Let's just hope he recovers soon and has another few good years at VP.
Adam Deuce
A blow indeed, but lets look upon it as an opportunity for Zat or a.n. other to step up to the plate and prove his worth. With competition for places so intense, an opportunity like this should be just the chance that our fringe players are craving for.

I tend to agree with villa_de. I haven't as yet been overly impressed with Carlos Cuellar, not on a consistent basis anyway. zat's all round performance against the Arsenal was pretty impressive in my book. Can he keep it up though, that I guess is the big question.
