Curtis Davies: Battles for possession with Libor Kozak

Curtis Davies: Battles for possession with Libor Kozak

The centre-back got the better of Villa striker Libor Kozak in a bruising encounter that left him requiring stitches in a cut above a swollen eye after the pair clashed in the air.

Davies also managed to keep Gabriel Agbonlahor in check to earn the man-of-the-match plaudits and the respect of his manager.

"Sometimes a centre-back doesn't get the recognition he deserves, but he really was a proper captain in this match. He was terrific," said Bruce.

"He has a horrible, horrible cut now, a really nasty one. It's a cut over the eye but a bad one which is down to the bone. It might need internal stitches too.

"But he put in a fantastic performance and helped us get a clean sheet. I thought he was by far the most outstanding player on the pitch.

"He hasn't surprised me. For me to pay £2.25m is a lot of money.

"I've still got big connections at Birmingham and he's been their player of the year for the last two seasons, which is not easy to do for a centre-back."

m only commenting on this (I don't care about Liverpool) because F365's twitter said I had call Matt Stanger a tw*t (which I don't agree with anyway) but I just wanted to be the first. Am I the first?

Trial And Error Rather Than Transition

S

unday, Sunday. Will there be a fan of either team, who if they are winning after 80 mins, won't still be nervous? This could be anything from 0-0 to 5-5, and no one would bat an eye.
