John Carew Out For Longer Than Expected?
Reports are suggesting that John Carew could be out for a few months more with his back injury. He was expected to be back for the January games but now it appears his agent is saying the injury will take longer to clear up.
Per Flod said: 'It is hard to say when John will be back. Maybe in February, maybe in March or later. This is an injury that will take time. It is important that John is completely healed.'
A report in The Guardian claims that Martin O'Neill has avoided the questions over JC's injury as he hasn't wanted to alert clubs of his need for a striker. Errr... ok, I don't follow the logic personally!
Would be good to get an update from Villa as to the situation and also a progress report on fans favourite Freddie Bouma
