John Carew was in fine form again tonight as he returned to the starting line up, and he couldn't be happier.
Speaking to AVTV after the match, Carew said he enjoyed returning to the starting line up and thoroughly enjoyed the game.
'It was good to come back and play from the start and score a couple of goals.'
It was definitely one of Carew's nights, plenty of running, plenty of effort, confidence was up again and no doubt helped by wanting to play a part in the next match. But on that form he is unplayable and it made such a difference in how we were able to play tonight - the lack of long balls was such a delight, but even then the odd few that did happen had more of an outlet than usual.
Interesting head ache for Monny now, Heskey hasn't been doing too badly but Carew on that form is dynamite. I know who I'd be picking as long as he fancies turning up.
JF: Was interesting hearing MON being interviewed after the game, he mentioned JC's goals and said 'better late than never' and also added when asked about the big man 'he is a hero to the Holte End, which is nice, he just needs to be a hero for me now'. Quite barbed but you can certainly feel the frustration from the manager on this player who really should be getting 20 goals a season easily for us. It wasn't long back he said how good JC was BUT that it was only in 1 in 7 games!
