Heskey Crocked Again

Heskey Crocked Again

Quite how he got on the pitch is anyone's guess, but the striker who sadly gives us nothing now faces an anxious wait to find out the extent of his ankle injury.

Heskey arrived on the pitch at 65 minutes as a reasonably ineffective Carew was given his substitute orders. He lasted all of 15 minutes before his dodgy ankle gave way again in what, at least without the benefit of replays, looked like the most basic of tackles. In fact I didn't even really see it clearly, as it appeared to be nothing.

Speaking after the match, O'Neill explained literally all that was known at the time of speaking:

'Emile has rocked his ankle. I asked Roddy, my doctor, how it was after the game and he said it was sore and he won't be able to assess it properly until tomorrow morning.

'I just don't know at this minute. It is just really unfortunate.'

Hopefully it will only be a bit of bruising, although Heskey hasn't hit it off at Villa he is a decent bloke and doesn't deserve a long layoff.

Your right, he seems a very nice chap! Its a shame he doesn't fit in the Villa team. When he plays for England he looks quite useful, it just isn't working! Still, I wish him a speedy recovery!

With England, he has the likes of Rooney, Lampard and Gerrard looking for the flick ons, makes a big difference. He came on as big John was totally ineffective second half, thouhg I would have brought Delph on at that stage and gone 4-5-1.
