Friends often say I can describe ability quite well, and having played a lot over the years and having a YTS straight from school I certainly know what happens day to day at a football club having seen it first hand. My view on our squad, I expect everyone will disagree but here goes...
Sorensen= Not bad, flapping and unawareness are in abundance
Hughes= Steady full back but head wanders regularly, passing lets him down
Delaney= Brain can switch off but still reliable, strong and consistent. The way he has been treated is a disgrace
Bouma= Heading very poor and defending is not much better either, why did we sign this guy ?
Mellberg= At times I cant believe he is an international defender, but other times he can be quality. Ridgewell lets him down
Ridgewell= Absolutely rubbish ! Cant defend, liability and very poor marking, we need to farm him out asap
Samuel= No comment, having put him up for sale on ebay I think that constitutes my view. Garbage. Cannot believe he is a footballer
UDLC= Gets forward well, but can let his head drop easily. Then his defending goes down the pan
Laursen= Please retire mate, your getting our hopes up. We know your finished
Berger= Waste of a contract
Barry= Mr Consistent, reliable in positions on the left
McCann= Very very very average, infact I think he's rubbish, only plus is he likes a tackle. Apart from that he sums us up as a club
Davis= Growing talent, playing too many games hence the lack of flair he had in the beginning. Build the team around him for the future. Excellent passing and control
Milner= Apart from the acne I think he is ok, gets forward well, although can be very predictable sometimes. Old fashioned touch line hugger
Djemba Djemba= Clown, to quote DOL 'Aston Villa do not make panic buys'. What happened just before midnight last January then Dave ?
Hendrie= How he has turned out like he has I'll never know. Very impressive years back, but now ???? Sign for Wolves mate
Gardner= Not seen enough of him but he has looked ok from what I've seen so far. With him and possibly Sam Williams being thrown in soon it could be good for us
Angel= Never understood why he hadn't left years back, good in the air, apart from that nothing else in my view
Phillips= Past his sell by date, although I do still rate him. Holds up well and can pull something out the bag when you least expect... Middlesbrough anyone ?
Moore= Needs time but has done tremendously well so far. Strong, quick and an excellent finisher
Baros= Awful, head down and run ! RUN LIKE THE WIND FOREST GUMP ! Finishing is dreadful, touch is rubbish and doesn't look interested one bit
Taylor= Not seen him yet to judge, was good at Arsenal
Whittingham= Next please....
David O'Leary= Well Dave, you've had your time, lost the dressing room and made us play boring c**p and below average football. You are tactically inept, pathetic and belittling in the media. You don't deserve to manage a club like ours. You talk utter nonsense and rubbish when asked questions you don't like and judging by how much you rave about Herbert, very spineless as well !
I hate Ellis, yourself and everything about you. The pair of you are the cancer of this football club and ruining it for the fans who care and more importantly MATTER.
In summary......... its happening before our very eyes. Its not even mediocre football. Its worse.......
