OK, so it is a slow news time at the moment but just reading our forum I saw an interesting post by Vital member: BarosBarryBouma who said:
'Much has been made of Carew's inability to play for us with any degree consistency; when the big man is up for it, he's almost unstoppable (see Bolton at home). When he's not, he can be a liability (see Burnley away). Unfortunately as of late Carew only seems to be up for it when the odds (and playing conditions) are in his favour.
Much has also been asked of Emile Heskey; his role in the squad and how we fit him into our line up. We know he wants to push his credentials for going to the World Cup, we know he's never really had a chance to impress in a Villa shirt, and never really had a consistent run of games for us.
So, a proposal.
Start Carew at home, in front of the crowd of adoring fans, and start Heskey away, in matches where we need someone willing to work (if you'll pardon the turn of phrase) like a mule for the team.
I just think that our home play suits Carew more, while Heskey will offer more in terms of sheer work-rate and determination than the big man away from Villa Park.
At the very least, it might see us through until January when we once again have the possibility of bringing in a player who can actually offer us the ability to do both.'
