One Of Only Two Defenders Struggling With Injury
Villa boss Martin O'Neill confirmed on the official site last night following the disappointing loss in the Europa League that Villa defender Curtis Davies is still struggling with a shoulder injury.
Obviously the former West Brom man is one of only two senior centre backs now alongside the so far disappointing former Rangers man Carlos Cuellar following the retirement of Martin Laursen and the unfathomable sale of Zat Knight to Fulham (and even more so the sale of Gary Cahill to Bolton Wanderers!)
There was talk recently that Davies could at some stage need surgery on his troublesome injury and Villa at the moment are having to assess the situation before our Monday night visit to Anfield to take on Liverpool.
Would .. oh bugger .. be an appropriate comment right now?
