Gabby Agbonlahor 'Tight Calf' + John Carew

Gabby Agbonlahor 'Tight Calf' + John Carew


Well, Gabriel Agbonlahor returned, scored and then went off injured.

A striker shooting and scoring? Very un Villa like isn't it? Then we had Nathan Delfouneso brought on as a winger... baffling times as always at Villa.

I digress.

Apparently Gabby was brought off, hopefully as a precaution, because his calf felt tight.

I hope Gabby isn't going to start to pick up hamstring (the reason for his pre and early season absence) and other muscle injuries regularly, this is the sort of thing that ruins the career of fast players. Fingers crossed this is just a blip for the lad, with the absence of any other striker willing to shoot, we need him fit and in the team.

Tell us something we don't know Feario I hear you shout... or is that just the voices in my head?

I digress once more.

Kevin MacDonald said after the game...

'Gabby's calf was very tight. I thought it was better to take him off sooner rather than later, just in case it turned into a calf strain which might put him out for a few weeks. We are hoping it might only be a little bit of time but we'll have a better idea tomorrow. Obviously Gabby is a major player for this football club. We need him to be fit and keep him fit for as long as possible.'

And on John Carew 'John has this ongoing injury which we have to keep managing. He can't manage to play three games in a week at the moment.'

Some would say JC can't manage one at times :(

"Feario"? lol, made me laugh that. Let's hope Gabby isn't out of action for the sticky toffee game.

If Albrighton is getting games, don't see why Bannan, Delfounso and (when he's fit), Delph, can't too. Would like to see another striker in to give Agbonlahor a rest. Hope whoever becomes manager decides on his best team playing a 4-5-1 formation. With Agbonlahor as (first choice) lone striker.

If we play a 3 man midfield(if no new signings come in) then delph should get a starting place along with petrov and ireland, Ireland can go do his buisness supporting the striker and delph is the perfect replacement for milner he will help back while making runs forward aswell. Cant wait for him too come back we could do with him now.
