It’s a basically simple question, this.
None of us Villa fans like or rate him, as he’s quite simply garbage. That plus the fact he was signed by big Feck, the useless one.
So “not rated” that Paul Lambert never gave him a look-in.
The truth is imo, that Lambert probably does rate him, but wasn’t allowed to play him, given the “get rid of anyone on a proper Premier league wage, at all costs” mandate that was handed down to him by Randy Lerner.
A policy that Lerner and Paul Faulkner thought could be easily be implemented and which just shows what they know about the way the game stands.
From what I’ve seen, Hutton could have gone to the Olbion and we might even have got a bit of a fee for him.
So why didn’t it happen?
I can only assume that there has been a change in attitude. One that I’d expect stems from the meeting where Lerner met Lambert in the US. Which is where I suspect Lerner had to practically beg Lambert to not resign.
It’s the only reason I can see for us totally reversing our alienating all the top paid players.
Is this blatently obvious reasoning?
Very possibly and I offer my apologies, if that’s what you think.
But the truth is, I don’t have a clue what’s going on down the Villa any more and it wouldn’t surprise me if there are other reasons behind what we’re seeing on the surface.
In other words, ulterior motives, which probably involve money saving.
As for the likes of KI or anyone decent, I’ll believe it when I see it.
