Mark Delaney Fights On

Mark Delaney Fights On

Mark Delaney is still fighting to return back to fitness. He visits the world renowned American surgeon Dr Richard Steadman mid April to have his knee injury checked before being given the go-ahead to start jogging.

The luckless Welsh international defender said:

'I've got my next assessment in the United States on April 16 when I hope to get the all-clear to start jogging. That's the next goal for me. That's when I will see Dr Richard Steadman and will find out how I have progressed. So far I've followed everything I've been asked to do, from 10 minutes on the bike in the morning and afternoon, to swimming and doing exercises in the pool.'

'I haven't suffered any reaction from my knee, and everything feels fine. But even if I feel really good, I have been told not to rush things at any cost. I must take things easy.'

Delaney is out of contract in the summer, so the timing of this injury could not have been worse as he has been unable to play any part in this season at Villa.

I hope so I like the guy. He was good before his injuries.

As with Martin Laursen we keep wishing that everything would fall into place for the guy, he could get his act together, stay injury free, and then our right full back problem would be solved overnight. Is it going to happen? It looks somewhat doubtful, but whatever the future holds for Mark Delaney I certainly wish him well and every success.

Sorry, but I don't think Delaney is the quality we need. He's a decent right-back, but no more. I'm all for building a squad, but not one composed of aging mediocrity.

At his best he would, without doubt be first choice and probably good enough to be part of the team to challenge for a Top6 finish next season. But time moves on and so now Mark should be looking at lower league football.

Why is he always injured? Is he clumsy or just unlucky? Seen him make some badly timed tackles, either giving a stupid foul or worse a penalty. If that didnt happen he would injure himself. Am I the only one who noticed this. Possitive thing is, he always gives his best. Think we should sell him while thanking him for his honest efforts. Good luck Mark.

Sell him morky13villa? With his injury record, plus of course his advancing years, I dont think we'd receive more than pocket change for him. Anyhow, he's a free agant come seasons end, so he'll just up and off if a new deal isn't offered to him by MON.
