Fabian Delph Progress Slow But Sure

Fabian Delph Progress Slow But Sure


Quite a few Vital Villa readers have been asking as to the progress of Villa midfielder Fabian Delph.

The head of media told me today: 'When the injury occurred the prognosis was nine months, so we`re still some way off that. But Fabian is making good progress and he remains on course.'

And General Krulak has just updated in his thread after being asked the very same saying:

'I spoke to the folks at Bodymoor Heath and they report that Delph is making slow but sure progress.'

Adding, 'Unfortunately, this is one of those injuries that you need to be very careful with the rehabilitation...if you push it too hard, you can set things back quite a bit. It involves the player knowing his own body and the physios ensuring that we don't progress too fast. Right now, things look very good....Fabian is working hard...his head is in what the Team is doing...he wants to get back on the field and into training and eventually into the play of the game.'

Can't wait for his return. He'll provide the steel for the middle we're currently lacking.

I was SO excited about Fabian and equally gutted when he got injured. He looked like such a talent the little we saw him. Good luck Fabian.

Yes black_villian he is really that good. Gets proper stuck in and can deliver killer balls. The Future is definitely still bright and he'll be a shining light I'm sure of it.

Im concerned that at his age a knee problem like this can ruin your career. Look at owen and king and laursen and hargreaves. Just hope he makes a full recovery....

yeah i am concerned about him getting such an injury at such a young age too very few recover from these kinder injuries a player is never usually the same after them and he certainly will loose pace. i cant wait to see him though also can anyone compare him to a player so i have an idea of how he plays? and where would you rate him with regards to milner or even barry?

I'd perhaps compare him to a young roy keane. Full of energy but has the skill, the vision and the range of passing to do something with the ball once he's won it.
