Good news for Frimpong

Good news for Frimpong

Thankfully after taking a nasty kick to the face against Aston Villa, medical staff have cleared Emmanuel Frimpong.

After receiving what has to be pointed out as an accidental kick from Stiliyan Petrov, Frimpong was stretchered off and taking to the hospital for tests.

Those tests have revealed good news, with the doctors confirming that there is no long-lasting damage to to his eye.

He will go back to for appointments with a specialist, but McCarthy is hoping that he could even return to training this week.

'I think Manny will be fine, He's off for a couple of days but was at the hospital again yesterday with the Doc and will see a specialist on Thursday and I expect him to train on Friday.' McCarthy told Wolves Official Website on Monday.

He added: 'I haven't seen him but spoke to him yesterday and spoke to (Doctor) Matt Perry yesterday and there is no damage to his eye.

'He's got a bruised face and that will be checked out on Thursday to make sure it's o-k.'

Phew! That's good news ... but as I have already observed on another website, it's a measure of our desperation that the health of a nineteen year old loanee is the difference between a glimmer of hope and a plunge into the abyss of the Championship.

Will be very interesting to see who lines up next to him. One would think that our new 600k Marquee signing, Eggy would be a shoe in BUT I suspect the odds are that he will be warming the bench in favour of the Slow Serbian. I have given up worrying about new signings because e won't play them anyway. He'd rather revert to his faithful trusty rear guard regardless of whether or not they are good enough.

RM: I would have thought that Jonsson was the obvious replacement for Henry. As Milijas proved on Saturday, he lacks the bite and his passing skills have rusted. If only Adlene was not so rash and error-prone. We deperately need another PL quality striker too. What's happened to the Kenwyne Jones bid?

It's clear as day to me that whilst Adlene is capable of playing in midfield he shouldn't be. Why is he not playing behind Fletch in the JOH role?? He'd get goals no doubt about it. Am I the only one that can see this????

I thought Doyle was starved of service in the b*** game - why not try him just behind Fletch ? Nevertheless, the Frimpong news is very good news.... if only we had our own "impact" players !!

I'd put Edwards next to Frimpong. DE isn't going to supply a ball for Fletch, he can't finish with chances at his feet and with EF doing the forward running and link-up play,Edwards can do what he does best and be a nuisance to the opposition, whilst putting his usual industrious 'shift in'. Probably because my heart usually rules my head with regard to AG, I partly agree with BT, in that i'd try him in the position that DE has been playing.It would probably be his last chance to stake a claim for a first XI place-which would involve a pretty vast improvement on his previous performances in the league. I said when DE played the support role earlier in the season that AG would relish the chance to play in a more forward position but his showings since then have let him down.Even if he were to shine, though, MM is likely to put KH straight back in, so someone would lose their place again.
