Gabby's Injury More Serious Than 1st Thought?

Gabby's Injury More Serious Than 1st Thought?

www.avfc.co.uk have updated on Gabby Agbonlahor
whose injury picked up in the US of A doesn`t now appear quite as minor as first thought.

He`ll have to have a scan and go and see a specialist for the knee injury.

Damn.

Surely this means that Villa will have to dip into the transfer market for another striker?

Hopefully Gabby returns quickly. Big season for him.

Yet anther good reason to get a quality striker to play alongside DB9 - when he's fit too!

PL has been very careful with the purse strings to date, anticipate some players to leave which at this stage will balance the books, time to spend big on some forwards and wide players... a major are that needs strengthining especially with Gabby's injury

This is what I said when it was announced that Gabi's injury wasn't serious and that he would be back in two weeks - I always have a doubt on these issues. It is the old cynic in me. Gabi's injury is hopefully a 'two week' one at worst. But I can't help thinking that we will not be seeing him again any time soon. PL is cute enough to know that you do not let other clubs know if one of your players is going to be out for any length of time. Should he need to go into the transfer market because everyone is aware of a serious injury to one of the players this simply inflates the asking price. As I said, I am an old cynic, but if Gabi is available at the start of the season I will cut Fears hair free of charge. - It seems that the VOTH is correct once again haha. Forget the press, listen to the VOTH for the real stories at Villa Park!!!! Fear - are you ready for that hair cut Sir?

It creates a tricky situation. If Gabby is going to be out for 'say two months', would PL need to get another striker? Can we afford to get another striker? What happens when Gabi is fit? Weimann has shown he capable and getting another striker would push him down the pecking order and potentially alienate him. If we buy another striker then there is a possibility of us having 1 striker in the team, dependent on formation and 4 on the bench? Would the money be better spent in defence? After all you could play a front three of Holman, NZogbia and Bent and still have Weimann and Delfonesou as options if needed. I am not sure money on a new striker is a priority unless a real gem can be unearthed form the lower leagues or abroad.

PL will first need to trim the wage billa bit. Get rid of players like Warnock, Hutton, and Collinswho are all on large wages. Bring in quality replacements (Carruthers, Ramis, etc.) and, like VOTH said, add some quality in the wide areas and up top.We cannot afford Gabby and Bent to be injured.
