Kemy Agustien: Swansea midfielder has revealed he is lucky to be alive

The Dutchman has been sidelined with a calf injury for two months, but only now has he revealed how the injury was sustained.

"It was bad - I am lucky to be alive," Agustien he told the Western Mail.

"I was back home in Holland and driving my car but for no reason it slipped and hit a ditch. The car went into a cornfield and flipped over a couple of times.

"It went over twice so my head was pretty shaken up. The car was gone - I was so lucky it was only a calf tear.

"And I've been saying my prayers ever since. I thank God every day anyway but I had my angel with me when it happened.

"It could have been worse but it is in the past now and I want to concentrate on my future and to be ready when I get my chance with the team."

Agustien is hoping he can make his return to action this weekend against Newcastle and he may get his chance with Ki Sung-yueng injured.

"I am hoping to start at Newcastle," he said.

"I've been working hard, making sure if I get chance to get on the pitch I am ready to show what I can do.

"I had five minutes at a difficult time at Southampton but I think I did well in the position I played and in the small amount of time, so hopefully that can help.

"Everybody knows what my qualities are and I think I should be playing - that's my opinion and everybody would say that about themselves. But I think I should be playing so I need to let my feet speak for me.

"Because when you get an opportunity you have to make an impact because there are lot of midfield players here and a lot of midfield players who are doing well.

"Of course I want to play but Swansea is not about me. There are a full squad of players who want to play and perhaps think they should play. All I can do is work hard and if I get that chance then take it. That's what we all have to do, I'm no different. If it comes on Saturday then great, if not then I will keep working hard."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
