Dunne Out For Eight Weeks

Dunne Out For Eight Weeks

Results have shown that Richard Dunne will be out for eight weeks after suffering a fracture to his right clavicle.

That's a word I don't type often.

He was set to undergo an operation today.

In better news, Chris Herd has returned to full training following his ankle ligament issue.

He should be available for the game against Wigan.

We will miss Dunne IMO.. He is prone to mistakes, but can also be outstanding..With Clark out as well, we only have Cuellar, Collins and a very inexperienced Nathan Baker to call on..pray for no more injuries or suspensions at centre-back..also on another note..how sad to hear about Eamonn Deacy.. one of the fabulous 14..RIP

I know he's had an up and down season, but thought he was immense yesterday. Every now and then as a Villa fan you think things can't get any worse. And then you're always proved wrong.

Hutton and Collins one booking away from a suspension. As was pointed out to be earlier, McLeish lost two centre-halves this time last season, and look what happened. God I wish he would leave.

We will miss Dunne's leadership. He is a big player for us and the fact that he probably won't play for most of the rest of the season can only be bad news.

Just had another thought. If we were to lose Collins or Cuellar, McLeish's talent for playing players out of position might mean a centre-half spot for Hutton or Heskey. Alright, so it was a scary thought. Another scary thought, if we were to go down, we might keep McLeish as he has experience of getting a team promoted from the Championship. Even relegation might not see the back of him!

We will miss Dunne. We will also see just how bad Eck is at organising and motivating without him. We think that Dunne has been bad but the evil emperor behind all Dunne's mistakes will make himself known now.

I would rather Heskey at CB than on the wing!
