Stride Confirms - No Players Out

Stride Confirms - No Players Out

Steve Stride has confirmed that there will be no move for Kevin Phillips back to Sunderland despite press links.

Niall Quinn, now manager at Sunderland, has been linked to a move for his former strike partner, however Operations director Stride said:

'The situation regarding players is quite simple. No decision can be made until the appointment of a new manager.'

So Portsmouth and Spurs can forget about Gareth Barry as well!

That is as one would have thought. How could Villa sell one of our best players (Barry) before a new Manager (O'Neill hopefully) could have a say.

Dear Villa Diary: O'Neill appointed on Wednesday...Randy ties up the deal on Thursday...Ellis is escorted out of VP by the men in white coats on Friday...a 42000 claret & blue army watch Villa thrash Reading 5-0 three weeks on Wednesday...

What do the Villa directors do? They have not sold or signed any players, they havent got a new manager and they havent sold the club. There is no further work to observe on the training facilities and there is no planning to be done with the cash from season ticket sales. They must be sitting at their desks playing on the internet all day (a bit like me).

O'Neil by himself is a long way short of a panacea for Villa's woes... THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE

At least Stride is speaking common sense for once, not a very regular habit of our boardroom members.

Any club that seels or buys players without a manager in charge would be stupid anyway. Hardley suprising that we have told Sunderland to wait. What's the next headline gonna be? "Villa to be managerless until new manager appointed shocker!" ?
