Davies; on the match thread. Think it was Arsenal away.

Some of our players at the time described his rupture sounding like a gun going off.

That is interesting as when i did mine many years ago it actually felt  and sounded like i had been shot - i actually looked around to see from where as there was no one near me at the time i kicked the ball

Didn't Jenas do the same look to see who had tackled him when his Achilles snapped or whichever part fell off that time.

Surprisingly it did not actually hurt, then when i tried to stand up it felt like it was someone else's leg - very weird

I was playing as a keeper at 41 in the over 35's league and that ended the playing days for me :'(

The road back to being able to walk etc was a long one so to return to being a professional sportsman must be such a frustrating one

Didn't he fall over a Villa Park hose pipe not quite embedded enough into the turf?

I think it was one the flaps which cover the sprinklers.

Some reporter's* conclusion was that because his achilles just snapped with no one around him and he looked behind. But I'm pretty sure that he stated he looked back because of the sudden pain and was looking for who had just tackled him.

*Kendrick mentioned it on his live match updates for the Meaning Evil.

Hasn't JJ written a memoir available in Tesco for fans of The One Show, where he details this injury?

Weren't we paying his wages for the full year in the loan terms? And couldn't even terminate the loan in January.

Considering we'd appointed McLeish a few months early it was pretty clear by then the ownership didn't have much of a clue and we were just getting mugged off by other clubs constantly.

Bet Levy was sniggering to himself when we agreed to take Jenas on that deal in last hour of transfer window.

Still, we got Hutts at the same time and he ultimately did a grand job for us.

Yes his first one's out, it's called 'Jenasis'.

When is he ready to be selected? With around 16 games left hope he gets 10 to 12 or so matches and some full minutes this season.

Emery said he hoped he'd be training with the first team in the next week or two. I would guess he's going to need a few weeks and some U23 games to get his match fitness up, so realistically mid-April perhaps? That would still give him ten games to play.

Would be great to have him for 10 games to end this season.
