Our success rate with Brazilians hasn't been great so far has it. We tend to break them.
We should look for an Argentinian replacement, they seem a lot more sturdy.

I sometimes feel that only we can buy a defender has never played less than 28 league games, and yet is crocked after 2 appearances for us.

And at his age, you wonder if we'll have to add him to Bent, Kozak, Okore, Wesley and numerous others that even when they managed to come back were never the same as they were.

Luc Nilis sprang to mind for me. Petrov too, although not quite the same scenario and not as young as those players but still our captain at the time. It is devastating really, we'll be left with another 'what if...'

Anyone know how this will impact FFP? Can we sign a replacement without being penalised?

He should be able to come back from this just as strong as before.  He's 29, surrounded by the best physios and surgical advancements have made this a very recoverable injury.

Certainly feels like it, all the joy from Saturdays result now seems rather flat.

We can only wish him a speedy and full recovery (though from what I understand a full recovery isn't the norm).

Somebody with a stats head should do an analysis. Are we disproportionately hit with long-term serious injuries/illness  to important players/big signings?

It seems to be way out of proportion with us. Off the top of my head

Nillis
Laursen
Kozak
Bent
Grealish
Ehiogu in 1998/99 being out for a time more or less derailed our season.

Edit: Gary Charles, Dion Dublin, and I recall Benteke getting a few bad ones too.

It's a bit of a pisser but at least we still have 4 centre halves to all upon. Let's hope for a swift recovery.

I'm sure all clubs have their lengthy-list of crocked woes. We're not cursed, we're just the Villa.

Bouma's injury looked horrific and also meant he didn't play for us again although he did pick his career up when he returned to PSV.

Dreadful news for him and the club. Big injury, and at 29 not an easy recovery.

Wish him all the best on the long road back to first team action.
