'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Boom Boom Bouma Feeling Good

WAHEY (copyright John Creswell) Wilfred Bouma made a successful 90 minute comeback for the reserves last week.

The Dutch left-back, out now for 14 months following an awful ankle dislocation, told the official site that the last time he managed 90 minutes was 6 months back but he then suffered a set back from his recovery adding:

'Then I had to go back for another operation. I'm just glad to be back out there playing 90 minutes without any pain on the ankle. It's now just getting into it again. I feel everything is coming back which is a wonderful feeling. You think because you suffered such a horrible injury you will have some discomfort but before it was more than discomfort. You can cope with that but not with pain.'

Adding, 'It looks really well now so I feel very positive.'

He does admit that he still can't risk rushing things but he is aiming to give MON some selection headaches soon.

He looked very rusty in the first half but settled down more in the second half. I'm sure we'll continue to see an improvement. As he's missed quite a lot of the time at the 'peak' of his career you've just got to hope he gets through the rest of it without any more injuries.

cant wait to see Wilf return, just hope he can still make those terrific sliding tackles and not go down the Delaney route. That would be a shame and make two talented full-backs wasted thanks to injury

I cant wait for his return.At the point of him getting injured he was seriously one of our better & definately most consistent players. Not anything special over the otherside of the halfway line but outstanding in his own half, as solid as they come. Dont think he'll push Warnock quite as quickly as some think, it was a horrific injury & he has been out for ages.But when he is fit & back on song thats 2 very good left backs that not many clubs can better, i'm talking as a pair.BOOOUUUMMMAAA!!!!!

I think he's now pushing to get back to a position as our cover for Warnock. January I can Shorey off, and now Heskey by the sounds of it....
