Wilfred 'Freddy' Bouma Glad To Be Back

Wilfred 'Freddy' Bouma Glad To Be Back

Oooh, how nice, a non controversial and positive bit of news! :o)

Wilfred Bouma last night managed 90 minutes as the Villa reserves beat Chelsea 4-3.

Freddy dislocated his ankle in a most horrific fashion (I was in line with it and it really didn't look nice!) during the Inter Two Bob (oh God, don't mention Europe!) game v Odense back in July and has fought to get back to fitness since.

He told the official site: 'It was really great to be back.'



Adding, 'I managed to get a full 90 minutes under my belt and I'm glad my ankle held up and I didn't get any kind of reaction. That was pleasing.'

He also says it was a great test for him as it was a high tempo game.

'What pleased me was that it felt so natural to be out there playing - even though I have been out of action for many months. And the fans were tremendous - they were cheering and chanting my name - it was really great.'

Welcome back Freddy, hopefully it won't be long before we see you in the first team, be ready for a heroes reception!

Nigel Hokey-Cokey was also back (on the bench) v Stoke on Sunday, so we have a few options returning, now we just need Martin Laursen to recover quickly from his knee operation and all will be sunny in the garden again!

This is great news and dare I say it brings an end to Shorey who will probably not feature again for Villa. Knowing O'Neill we will go into next season with one left back, Freddie, I do believe Shorey would provide decent cover though, but hey ho MON knows best........

come on winnie. get better (fitter) soon PLEASE. we need our unbreakable defense back. Laursen and Bouma back would really help us in our final few games. Come on the villa against City tomorrow night. i hope to the man upstairs we get a result.

Great News! Pity we played in the Intertoto and Uefa at all if in the end we wanted to throw the game! Losing Bouma was a heavy price to pay! And for what?

Will be like a new signing....sorry just had to say it!! Friedel, Young, Laursen, Davies and Bouma will be a great back 5 for the last 2 months of the season!! After we get Man U out of the way, I can see an unbeaten run coming along!!
In MON we trust!

There's no reason to think that Bouma would've remained injury free for the season. There's a good chance that the ankle was weak and was 'waiting' to go. SO villa_de your reasoning is flawed
