Well, this could be great news for Aston Villa.

It seems that Jonathan Kodjia has got his mojo back.

Having suffered from two career-threatening ankle injuries, the striker had looked a shadow of himself after returning last season. I did fear, with the joints being such awful places to get injuries, he may never find his way back to form again. It’s very difficult trying to run when you know your ankle, or knee (as other players have found out) has a weakness.

However, the 28-year-old hot shot has told https://africanfootball.com he’s looking to make up for lost time.

He scored for the Ivory Coast this weekend in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying game v Rwanda and as you know, has three for us already this season.

“I gradually regained form after a very difficult period last season,” Adding, “Today, I find the joy of playing again.”

“As proof, I’ve scored three goals since the beginning of the Championship. In any case, I want to make up for lost time, both for my club and national team.”

Amen to that.

Just got to hope he is played correctly now. I think many are boring of the one up front approach, it’s not working and needs to be changed. The supply to our strikers has been shocking for years. Kodjia, when on form, can score out of nothing, but why make him do that? Why not get the supply right? He also has to work on assists, sometimes he can be very frustrating shooting from daft angles instead of squaring the ball to a team-mate.

Just hope he can get a full run at it this season and no more injury setbacks. If so, he’s a major asset for us.

  • We have an unknown goalie and crap defence. 352 from now. Attack best form of defence. We gonna let a lot of goals in just gotta make sure we score more.

  • With Bruce fixated on Terry. That may never happen. The sure thing would be Collins. Not ideal but we have been put in this situation AGAIN by our idiot manager. Yes I 100% agree we have to out score everyone and that means Jonathan Kodjia that you CANNOT be selfish like u usually are. Abraham can be as good as you if not better. If you both decide to play together you will tear up this league and finally get you to the Prem. If not we will flounder for another year in this league. Your choice!!!

  • Have to agree 100% with Mike about Kodjia being greedy. It’s so frustrating seeing him shoot from stupid positions with better placed team mates who are open and have a better chance of scoring. If he could sort this out things would be so much better. Still unsure how SB is going to sort out our defence but hey ho let’s go again and give him a few games to see if we can improve. If we don’t then I think the new owners won’t be too pleased.

  • Sign John Terry for stability on the field and a general to the rest off the players lets get back to winning ways not just at Blackburn but against other teams come on villa lets go on a run of unbeaten games and get up the table where we should be up the villa
