Bouma Hopeful For End Of Season Attendance

Bouma Hopeful For End Of Season Attendance

It's been a while since we had a Boum Boum update, so here you go, it's a Boum-meister update.

Freddy Bouma has popped up on the Official Site, well to be more accurate Martin O'Neill has popped up on the OS talking about Bouma and it's all good, positive stuff for our injury ridden left back.

After repeated breakdowns following the horrific ankle injury he sustained against Odense in the InterTwoBob Cup a few years back, Freddy is now back in training as we know, but more importantly he's progressing well and his fitness is coming along nicely.

'He is slowly but surely getting back to fitness.'

His progress has been so good lately that Monny is also harbouring thoughts that he could be back in contention for the first team before the end of the season.

'Mental fitness will come with physical fitness, and the physical fitness will come when you have decided you have overcome the injury and it won't bother you again. I think with a wee bit of luck Freddie has got over that stage.'

As ever O'Neill is impressed by the commitment and attitude shown by Bouma, who himself has targeted a return to first team action before the curtains close on this season.

'I spoke to him two weeks ago - and it is his ambition to be fit for the run in of the season and it's really 95% down to Freddie himself.'

I certainly wouldn't bet against seeing him on the bench in the coming weeks...

difficult to see him getting in unless we get injuries. Surely MON won't move Carlos from left back and then Luke Young would be the obvious replacement if Carlos (who just isn't right at left back, that doesn't read very well does it?) unless there has been some fall out with Luke. can't believe he isn't in the team, he is a really good left back in my opinion and doesn't get exposed for position like our very good centre back filling the spot does. All baffling really

that said, if he does feature, I hope it is at home, imagine the reception he'll get?
