With the imminent signing of Kieran Richardson, plus Cole and Sendeross are Villa going back to the MON days of getting players past their prime.
Under MON we paid ridiculous wages and to add insult to injury gave long term deals to these players. Now we have finally cleared our wage bill from the MON era we seem to be heading back that way. Also is Richardson a Lambert signing or a Keane signing?
Ok we may not be giving them the ridiculous wages of Dunne, Warnock etc but surely any money no matter how small could be spent better than this.
These players (bar Sendeross) 5-6 years ago fair enough but this is just a desperate attempt by the club as the so-called ‘young and hungry’ con has failed miserably. Now the club expect us to buy into the ‘old and past it’ mantra.
What’s wrong with buying 2-3 decent players in the middle!!! Go figure.
