Sad News: King Carlos Out For A Month. Happy News: He Can Still Tweet

Carlos Cuellar, one of the most beloved players at Aston Villa, finally earned a start in last week's match against Blackpool. Unfortunately for him and his loud and vocal fanbase, King Carlos had to leave the field about 25 minutes in, after suffering a tear in his hamstring. Cuellar will now be out about a month, although he's hoping to return for the Bolton game on March 5. In a season filled with injuries, this is actually one of the more interesting ones for the Villa. After the match, Cuellar tweeted:

"I've been injured by chance. Its NOT true that I've injured by Howard Webb "

I had no idea there was a question as to whether Carlos managed to injure himself or whether the big bad referee, Howard Webb, had somehow taken him out. The idea seems almost Italian-like: Howard Webb hired by Birmingham City to take out a Villa defender so the Bluenoses stay up and we get relegated. Alas, Cuellar has squashed that rumor, and life remains as is, except with no arguments as to why Cuellar isn't playing for James Collins and/or Richard Dunne. (Because yes, some people seem to believe he could stand in for both).

In news about a player we all thought was dead, apparently Luke Young is back in full training. Never fear, however, as Young the Lesser will likely re-hurt his knee, injure his ankle, bang his hip, do something that would involve him never playing again. That way he can just sit on the sidelines collecting £37,000 a week. No, no, I'm sure footballers would rather play than be injured and collecting lots of money, but I'm professing my own opinion here about what I'd like Luke Young to be doing.
