Villa Striker D-Day Looms

Villa Striker D-Day Looms

Chris Sutton will make a decision on his future within the next 10 days and that could mean the Villa striker might hang up his boots for good.

Sutton has been out of action since the game against Manchester United last December (I think we won something like 10-0) due to an injury he picked up to his eye.

The 33-year-old former Blackburn Rovers and Celtic striker has seen no real improvements despite his time out of the game.

Martin O'Neill said: 'Chris has got another specialist to see. He has already seen one - and he has another one to see. He will make his mind up about things after he has seen the second specialist. He will make his mind up about his whole future and career. That will be within the next 10 days.'

Adding, 'Chris has got a genuine concern. His concern always is no-one can give him any guarantees about what might be the consequences if he got cracked on the head again. Whatever eyesight Chris has now, he would want to obviously keep.'

What a shame, imagine him and John Carew up front together? Jeez, the defenders wouldn't know where to put themselves.

Good luck Chris.

It's a shame, he showed glimpses of potential and was a useful player to have around. But his eyesight should rightly come above football.

Hope he make a full recovery. Football is only a game and he should not risk any further injury. Helped us out but came 10 years to late. Good luck Chris

He, like many of us would put sight before playing football, I wish him well and thank him for the big part he played in Villas opening part of the season.

What a player, had me on the edge of my seat more than once, hope he makes a full recovery, and I for one will remember we had a bit of class in the team, good point about him and Carew that would be a nightmare for any defence, shame we won't be seeing it. good luck Chris. UTV

His health obviously comes first, so very good luck to him. He was only ever going to be a stop-gap signing, but even so he won over many doubting Thomas' amongst the Villa faithfull.
