Aston Villa cannot play Wolverhampton Wanderers soon enough. The papers desperately need something else to talk about, and at this point, it would be rather refreshing to hear some scathing commentary on the lack of ability to defend from set pieces. Instead, tabloids, blogs, and even mostly-respectable newspapers are filling space by speculating over the future of Richard Dunne, who is "thought" to have criticized Fabian Delph. This supposed criticism, it is said, is just too much for Gérard Houllier, who will never play Dunne ever again.
Not even if he begs.
Thank goodness, then, that Carlos Cuellar will be fit for Wolves -- according to his Twitter, anyway:
Yay, King Carlos returns! RT @Cuellar24: @JoJoDonovan yes I'm back for the Wolves..;-) thanks x
Thank goodness. After all, Cesc Fabregas used his twitter to promise us all he'd be back to captain Arsenal against Birmingham City, and everything worked out just fine. Obviously if Cuellar thinks he's set to be back for Wolves, he'll be back. And Dunne can go on sitting on the bench. With his shoulder injury. Because, you know, he has one.
Instead, though, the talk will simply be about whatever Dunne did or didn't say about Delph ("hey, kid, your eyes are too big for your head" is my theory). There won't be any analysis about how the center back has never been in Houllier's long term plans, about how his style doesn't fit with the tactics the manager is trying to play. In the end, this will be just a pissed-up Irishman making racist comments and likely using the word frogs as well.
