Bouma's Back

Bouma's Back

Freddy Bouma will return to action next Monday for the reserves after suffering a minor hiccup as he was due to play in the Arsenal match.

After dislocating his ankle in our Intertwobob match against Odense last July, Freddy was due to return in the second strings match against Arsenal but he suffered a slight setback during training and was immediately withdrawn from the game for reasons of safety.

Freddy has again been resting and working hard at Bodymoor and the physios are confident he will be ok for a return to action on Monday against Chelsea.

Speaking to the press, O'Neill said:

'Bouma should play in the next reserve game, he should have played last week but felt a bit sore on the day of the game.'

O'Neill also confirmed that Bouma will not be travelling with the boys to Moscow, but will instead continue working on his own personal training plan at Bodymoor Heath to increase his fitness with the aim of him being in contention properly for the first team long before the season ends.

think that would be a huge boost if he can come back healthy for the last 8 or so games. we would be able to put luke young back to his favoured side, even though he has been excellent for us on the left i can only assume he will do just as well or better on the right. the team should also be able to rally around freddy and give all the lads a boost.

will be so good to see the big man back, he was showing outstanding form at the back end of last season, such a blow to pick up that horrible injury. It was a strange one (I was just in line with it) as it didn't look that bad when he went over but once he was down you could see his foot at a different angle to his leg. Not nice.

Will he actually be able to get match fit and back in form in time to grab a few games though? I certainly hope so!
