Bent Suffers Injury To Problematic Ankle.

Blimey, as if Villa don`t have enough problems!

Looks like Darren Bent has picked up a similar injury to the one that kept him out for a good period last season.

Paul Lambert explained to the press that Bent hurt his ankle in training on Friday.

The Villa boss confirmed it is the same ankle that he struggled with last season.

'Darren hurt his ankle on Friday in training. It is the same ankle he hurt against Wigan. I know it was serious then. Is it serious? I don't know yet. He will get treatment on it during the week and we will see."

And as if that isn`t enough, Eric Lichaj picked up a groin injury. Ok, we have cover don`t we? Well, not necessarily, the report says that Joe Bennett might also miss out as he aggravated a knee problem against Sunderland!

"Eric has picked up a strain and Joe's wound keeps opening up at the moment so we will have to try to patch the both of them up."

Not a problem at left back as we have Stevie Warnock..........I'll get me coat :-)
jonah
At least 444 will be happy ;)

Indeed Gibbo, it gives the chance for one of the youngsters to have his place on the bench and we don't have to waste a substitute at 60 mins on someone entering the field who offers so little.

Lets hope he's fit by January as it seems inevitble that he'll be off then..... if fit.
Pride of Lions
Baker injured too? We are in for a bit of a rough patch. Delph seems to end up at left back anyway according to a few so why not play him there.

You going to pick Warnock up from Bolton then Jonah. Someone grab his car keys

What about Stevens? Haven't seen him since he left Shamrock Rovers, How's he done?
Madirish
Stevens did all right on Saturday when he came on for 20 mins to replace Billy Five Cards.....:)

I am now convinced that "Villa444" is either Bent's agent, or his cousin Richard.......in case its not obvious, having him injured for lets say two months is NOT GOOD PERIOD, even if you want to sell him. Its not good news. It is bad news. Not a good thing. At all at all.
malacaxeta
You got me malacaxeta!! Suprised no-one worked it out till now. All the player's agents point out their client's shortcomings don't ya know. It's good news in that it will give the youth a chance to progress and won't keep us stuck in the past for any longer. Bent hasn't fully recovered from his injury and may never be the player that he was pre injury whether you think that he was good or not. It doesn't matter whether we get 1 mil or 20 mil for him as we don't know if Lerner will invest any more anyway!!!

Have to say I'm not sure DB will feature in a Villa shirt again
