    I think we will regret it if we don’t give Gardner a new contract, I think his got a bright future ahead of himself

      I reckon Gardner could become a vital part of our Villa midfield. Two years ago he played really well in the 3-2 victory over Wolves. If it wasn’t for his injuries I reckon he’d still be playing for the first team.

      I’m also a big fan of seeing our academy players given chance

    I’d like to see Bowery playing as a striker on loan, he’s well down the pecking order at Villa. He clearly has talent but needs an opportunity to show it. He isn’t a winger as has already been established and can’t have come on more than once or twice as a late substitute in a team that probably isn’t set up to deliver the ball to its strikers the way he’s used to.

    Gardner is a product of the academy and wants to play for Villa. He has talent, we need a player in the position in which he excels, he won’t cost the earth, as long as he can stay fit it’s all roses.

    I like that the club are loaning out players to get them match fit and tested competitively, it worked with Albrighton. If only Helenius could get some bloody match time. Anywhere.

    Ever hear of closing the barn door after the horse has bolted, Villa is well known for that. How many players are now playing for top , yes top clubs today. Money is on the boards a gender not thinking of fans.

    The jury is still out on Gardner , however Jordan Bowery , this kid is fuckin crap , a friend of mine knows one of his mates who said that even he admits he’s not good enough for Aston villa or the premier league for that matter and couldn’t believe his luck when lambert came in for him , boasting this single move to villa has set him for life ! Lambert is a clueless moron .
    That is 100% true on my kids lives

    Not sure about this article but one thing I am sure about is the authors vocabulary is abysmal. Was it written by a 8 year old? If so my apologies.

      That’ll be “author’s” then if you’re going to be a dick about it.

        Touche, Foxy (and yes, I know there’s no accent on the “e”).
        Also, “If so my apologies.” should contain a comma after the “so” 🙂

        Tbh, this sort of conversation is probably more exciting than what’s actually happening at the moment.
        As for Weimann sucking Lambert’s proverbial…. oh dear.

        Roll on the bloody game, so we have something to talk about, imo.

            No, MD8, “authors'” would mean if there were multiple authors. I’m afraid, ATOUCHOFVILLA.COM, “author’s” is correct. It’s a possessive apostrophe.

    While I don’t quite think Bowery will be good enough, I agree with Foxy. Bowery hasn’t come on and played the head striker role more than once or twice and he looked decent when he did. Don’t think he’ll ever be good enough to be a goal scorer at Villa but unless played in the correct position the right way, he’ll always look way out of his depth.

    Like Albrighton gardners career rests in his own hands, unless personalities clash and then he is already out the door, I dont think he has any issues and his contract renewal is probably a formality.

    On Bowery, i have to say he is no messi but when he has come on i feel he has done the job asked of him. He played down the left flank in one game and i think that was more of him to act as a wall to the opposing wing back, and he did the job perfectly.

    Earlier this season he met a cross perfectly with his head and it hit the bar, other good things about his game he can hold the ball up well and is not bad at laying it off. I think this loan is all about the next step in his development, I dont think he is a world beater but he is a big strong lad who can win and head the ball.

    He should not be played on the wing, he has no pace and is not great at dribbling his shooting i am yet to to see any to make a judgement.

    If he does well on loan which i hope they both do then we can command a fee and will prorbably get one because of his low wages or he can continue to develop at Villa spend a season on loan to build up his expereince.

    hope everyone enjoyed our midseason break 🙂

    i was disappointed 2 hear gardner being loaned out, but i taken on board the reason most of u pointed out, i like him plus hes definitely bringing more 2 the table, than some of our current midfielders,
    bowery needs games so happy 2 see him leave, gd 4 him as well us, puts him in the shop window, if hes successful which iam sure he will be. i fail 2 see wot the fuss is about with him, he was not a major gamble,
