The transfer window has been open for a good while now and we’re nearing the final month of the transfer window. Aston Villa have successfully signed 6 players. Lambert and Aston Villa would like to sign one or two more faces to add to the team, however Aston Villa must first sell half a dozen of players. Lambert has made it no secret which players he’d like to sell. Aston Villa released the squad numbers for this season and fans were quick to notice that many players from the ‘bomb squad’ where given the highest numbers. This is an indication of the players that Aston Villa want to sell.
Enda Stevens 37
Alan Hutton 41
Stephen Ireland 40
Barry Bannan 42
Nathan Delfouneso 38
Darren Bent 39
That’s 7 players that Aston Villa want to sell, we’ve only sold 1 player this season. Brett Holman is gone, but the rest; it’s going to be a struggle to sell. Bannan is talking to Blackburn, guess what, wages are a stumbling block. Hutton to Mallorca is probably not going to happen, why? Wages. Bent is being linked with both Fulham and Newcastle, but we are still waiting for Villa to accept a bid. I think that Villa should try a new strategy. Perhaps recommend these players to foreign clubs? Germany, Spain, Europe anywhere. I remember Owen’s agent created a report of his skills, why can’t their agents do the same? For all we know, it’s already happened. But, if a player wants to leave, why can’t their agent work really hard on getting a move. Surely if you’re a footballer you want to play and be willing to take a wage cut? Money in my opinion corrupts minds, if someone’s an athlete surely they want to play a sport and not just play for a paycheck? People’s minds are turned by a man-made invention. But, it’s the world we live in.
Hopefully Aston Villa can push these players out, I think that these players could find clubs outside of England. Not sure if they’d take a pay-cut but we have got to try. I can’t see any of these players playing for Aston Villa again.
