Jlloyd Samuel For Sale

Jlloyd Samuel For Sale

Shock horror, Aston Villa left back Jlloyd Samuel has been put on the transfer list! NO, not by David O'Leary but by a fan. He's put the player up for sale at online auction site ebay. The starting price is £0.01 and as yet, no bids have been received.

The sales pitch - and the seller is perfectly fair in the fact he is prepared to post the player anywhere in the world to potential buyers! - says:


'FOR SALE !!! YES That's right... Jlloyd Samuel.

Possibly the best left you could wish for in your pub team, 5 a side or just generally a kick about in a field, car park etc etc. He can't pass, he can't dribble, he can't defend, he can't tackle and has no positional awareness but my mate David says he is an 'honest lad'. This makes him ideal for the above, but he prefers to give a game of headers and volleys a miss.

With over 100 appearances for Aston Villa and an England call up you cannot afford to miss this auction. Please do Aston Villa FC a MASSIVE favour as even non-Villa supporters know how tight Herbert Ellis can be with dough, every penny helps. At present Wilfred Bouma needs a little competition because if he gets injured, then Gareth Barry has to deputise which leaves us open down the left hand side.


Gloves and Football not included'


So, we may as well tie this in with a poll on the player. Do you think Jlloyd Samuel should be sold?

I have to hold my hands up and say I'm a big fan of Jlloyds. He hasn't progressed this season and struggled with injuries and form for much of last but I don't think fans have respected the fact he has played through several injuries to help the cause bearing in mind the lack of cover in the left back position. Even this season when Bouma, the man brought in to offer some competition for the position, picked up an injury and was unable to play, Jlloyd stepped in and filled the role despite having a shoulder injury himself.

You also have to question the training regime and management techniques if they aren't able to develop such talent. I can remember Ian Taylor saying what a great prospect Jlloyd was and only two seasons ago the player was an ever present in the team. Can he really have become a bad player since? It could be injuries, confidence, training, management, external factors or all of those reasons, but if he can get over the niggles and get back into the swing of things, I believe he could be a very accomplished defender again. He certainly, at his best, ties in very nicely with Barry just in front.

Both Charlton and Liverpool have been linked to the player this season with Alan Curbishley looking at putting a multi million pound bid in during this winters transfer window. Maybe he'd be better to buy him off Ebay?!

Have your say, join in our poll.

Although I would fully expect for that to be taken down within hours!
