John Carew Fit For Wigan Clash

John Carew Fit For Wigan Clash

Martin O'Neill has revealed that big John Carew is in the squad for our game against Steve 'Mr Potato Head' Bruce's Wigan Athletic.

O'Neill told the official site: 'John played 45 minutes in a behind-closed-doors friendly against Derby and is feeling good.

So did Wilfred Bouma, but he is obviously not quite there yet.

O'Neill revealed 'Marlon picked up an injury - on his instep - this week so John comes in and that's good news.

Adding - 'He hasn't had much match practice but it's still very encouraging. Offensively, it's very positive for us.'

If he can make the impact from the bench he did when we played Wigan at the JJB it could prove a big boost for us!!!

He will face stiff competition from big heskey now tho, i expect them both to keep each other firing on all cylinders. I expect we will see 10 mins of him as a late sub.

"JC comes back the week we buy a replacement. Great." For heaven's sake Mancuni - if we don't sign a number of backups for every position people complain about the size of the squad and the lack of alternatives. If we do sign them, you still complain! Lol!

Heskey was not a replacement FFS! If Man U can have Rooney, Berbatov,Tevez. Then im quite sure we can keep our strike force happy. Its all about competiotion for places something JC has never had at Villa.

Interesting what 3 months rest can do for a player, lets hope he comes back with his shooting boots on and the 'total menace' version appears.
