Villa Striker To Sunderland?

Villa Striker To Sunderland?

Reports suggest that now Aston Villa have a manager, Sunderland's manager Niall Quinn may well return with a bid for his former Black Cat's strike partner Kevin Phillips.

Villa were approached for the players services but after losing David O'Leary the club said there could be no departures. Now that situation has been resolved, some arrivals and departures might slot into place.

Quinn said recently: 'In terms of the striking market, I would really only be looking at Kevin Phillips. I don't see him playing 46 games and scoring 35 goals; I don't think that's going to happen. But the standards of professionalism he would bring and the things he could teach my other young forwards - about being in a partnership, about retaining the ball and letting things develop - would be a real asset for us.'

'If I could bring him to the club then I'd love to do it.'

If Phillips left would it really be a big loss?

I have always liked Phillips but he joined us 3 years too late. Let him go and be a hero once more. Heard Niall Quinn on the radio this morning praising his "honest bunch of lads" so he might be interested in a few Villa players!

Typical O'Leary signing. Injured before we signed him, injured after we signed him and a good player 5 years ago.

I give O'Leary credit for one good signing(Hughes) and several who have yet to prove themselves (Bouma, Laursen, Taylor) and the jury is still out on Sørensen.

Mind you I must admit I was excited about the prospect of Phillips, but as has been said, too late in his career.

Only 1 good signing - Solano. Then we gave him back!

I agree with son_of_cher we should flog phillips, but let gabby and moore play instead, I don't think thats a good idea either, if we want to start competing on the same level as spurs and liverpool, lets not even mention chelsea, man u and arsenal, we need 2 class forwards now i'am not saying they won't become that, but moore isn't has good as we first thought, we need players to put the fear of god into defenders, andy gray, peter whithe, i don't think john terry and gallas break into a sweat when they play the villa, I went thru the team the other day and apart from davies and barry (70%) of the time, the whole team needs rebuilding and before you start saying thats bull*****, how many of todays team would get in the great villa sides of the past, you only need to look at the teams that are interested in villa players now to know things are wrong, middlesvilla, portsmouth, sunderland, blackburn, wolves, no need to go on, lets not kid our self even with mon this is one massive rebuild needed.
