Well, the cost cutting just keeps on going. Just how deep a crisis are Villa in? Big enough to really tempt Doug Ellis to sell? Could be, but we need full scale approaches from people with money first! The annual accounts should certainly be interesting!
Vital Villa already reported that club doctors Phil Bickley and Peter Giddings have fallen victim to the cut backs, now we learn that two part time masseurs and a weight training instructor have also felt the axe of Doug.
Now a David O'Leary ally and our chief scout, Ian Broomfield, is set to move to Portsmouth to fulfil a similar role. O'Leary said, when he brought Broomfield to Villa, that he was 'one of the best in the country' and reports suggest he has become frustrated by trying to scout for players when Doug isn't in the market to buy! However criticism is also growing with the players he has recommended such as the Djemba twins and Mathieu Berson.
Apparenty O'Leary is now looking for a replacement, quite why is anyone's guess, lets just hope he is more used to the bargain end of the market, lets not forget that Thierry Henry wasn't exactly a household name when he moved to Arsenal, there must be some gems out there, although not many for peanuts (the preferred fee of Doug).
