Which Players Should Villa Keep?

Which Players Should Villa Keep?

46% of those that voted said that the player Villa HAVE to keep hold of is Gareth Barry. This followed a poll suggested by Tall_Paul, where we asked: If Villa have to sell, who would you prefer stay?

24% said Czech Republic international striker Milan Baros.
20% young Northern Ireland international midfielder Steven Davis.

The rest were made up of 4% for rookie striker Luke Moore who was linked to Fulham recently, 4% for Columbian striker Juan Pablo Angel and only 2% saying Lee Hendrie who is being linked to a Villa Park exit with Sheffield United apparently very interested.

Gareth Barry has this morning been linked to a Spurs move. More to come on that one...

My thinking is that a player like Milan Baros will always be more effective in raising Villa's profile than someone like Gareth Barry. Baros will be noticed at the World Cup this summer. He will receive huge media coverage if he is successful and his good looks (ooer) will only help with that. Having him as our player is good for Villa as a commercial concern. Unfortunately, Barry seems incapable of being recognised on the international stage.

With quality around him, I agree Baros is outstanding. I would be gutted to see either / both leave.

We need our best players to stay and that means both Barry and Baros, unless we get big money like 5.5 plus for bary and 10 plus for Baros, then maybe.

As much as BAROS frustrates the hell out of me with his apparent attitude and diving you can't knock his goal scoring ratio and at the end of the day that's what wins games. He and Barry are not fringe players and are definately the sort who should be staying. Sell yes.... but not your best players.. and we don't have too many of them!!

"With quality around him, I agree Baros is outstanding." Dont you mean... "With quality around him, Baros can appear talented" The only thing that is outstanding about Milan Baros, is the wonder of how he knows where he is going without ever taking his eyes on his shoe laces. MB he doesn't "I would be gutted to see either / both leave." - Unfortuanetly for Villa that is a very real posability.

Every player has his price the trouble being that at Villa they tend to be priced at less than market value. Some of the money being spent or talked about is crazy £8.6m for Johnson £4m for Lescott £9.5m for Bent. That for me would make Baros £12m+ and Barry £6m+, however then who comes in and how much of that money gets used on playing staff?

Fatloser, I totaly agree about the pricing, especially as Chelsea want £5 million for Huth who has basically spent 2 seasons on the bench. But as far as bringing in replacements is concerned, Arsene Wenger has shown time after time what a good scouting/coaching and management setup can do. Our problem is not money (I know we don't have much but many other clubs in the division have much less) it's the whole structure of the club (which both Ellis and O'Leary must be held responsible for) and a generally poor manager who ia tactically inept, unable to motivate, train his players without them becomiong injury prone and appears to lack the necessary skills to develope emerging talent. Put quite simply, our biggest problems are not money and players but Ellis and O'Leary. Personally I put most of the resposibility at O'Leary's feet as with Ellis at the helm we have achieved alot more than O'Leary looks likely to ever achieve.
