Unlucjy for Houllier. He have a hard start as manager for Villa

GJ234211d ago

Villa are in a mess at the moment. Always bad for a manager coming into a club that's unorganised. Shown by Inter Milan and Liverpool this season

nearly beat United very unlucky wish him good luck for the future

GJ234211d ago

He wont be out for long. Just needs a few weeks to let the knee relax and he'll be back

knee injuries are easy to make them come back he recieves a blow slide tackle and the knee is damaged again that happens to Toress all the time

GJ234211d ago

Im sure he wont miss that many games. Sounds like quite a minor injury
