MON has backed John Carew to be on the goal trail this season. As everyone no doubt remembers, despite 3 months out injured, he managed 15 goals last season and the Villa boss said the Norwegian international can do even better this season.
He says JC, when fit, is a handful adding 'I've often said that he possesses more ability than he thinks he has himself. He is pivotal to Villa.'
He also says his goal run at the end of the season helped Carew realise what he could do at this level.
And on the balance of strikers, he explained to Sky Sports:
'We have Gabby Agbonlahor, Emile Heskey, Carew and I think young Nathan Delfouneso will come through as well.'
Again, the key, 'if we can keep them fit' THEN there are goals to be had in the team.
He also states that there should be good supply from the likes of James Milner, who set up a lovely goal for England the other night and Ashley Young, not to mention the fact that some of the midfield should be able to weigh in with some goals themselves.
So there you have it, doesn't look like MON is in the market for a new striker and most probably never was this summer.
