I have to say straight off that I’m not 100% convinced by the source, which is HITC;
Since when have they ever been first in coming out with Villa news?
Whatever, I’m willing to stick my neck on the block in going with it, as I think it’s in the bag anyway.
So what does he bring to us?
He can stick his foot in (that’s Westwood hopefully demoted) and creates and scores (likewise Gardner) when he’s on his game, which he has been lately.
Consider he’s in a team that’s struggling and a club that’s in a very iffy place with the takeover turmoil, yet he’s still achieving, that surely has to be a good thing?
But, he can disappear in games.
Indeed, if you read the Forest fans views, there are just as many want him gone as want him to stay, because of his inconsistency.
Whatever, at £3 millon he has to be worth a go and weren’t there similar suggestions about Adomah, who I think has been mostly good for us?
Hmm, the title isn’t that relevant really, is it?, as I can’t see many downsides.
The rumoured £40k a week wages might prove to be a drag if it goes wrong, but overall I’d say this is a great buy.
A hopefully rejuvenated player (inspired by the massive wage rise) in a club that’s seemingly on the up should help move us forward.
