One Of Only Two Defenders Struggling With Injury

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?

Think MON talking about not breaking the bank if going to be his downfall. Leaves transfer to late to get bargains, but defence is now next to nothing and we may be looking now to add 3-4 defenders, paying sky high prices like last year especially when others know we desperately need them.... Upson 12 mil + Distin 6mil + Wheater 6mil + Warnock 8 mil = 32 mil on defenders.....how much did we spend last year? And these are match winning players either!!!
