From Zero To The San Siro?

From Zero To The San Siro?

It had to happen, as soon as a few words are uttered by the manager about a player and his future, a link appears for the players exit.

In this case Czech Republic international Milan Baros apparently being linked to AC Milan 'According to reports in Italy'.

I've not seen the reports and to be fair this comes from Fansfc who do tend to use the more outlandish links!

They say that their manager Carlo Ancelotti is looking at making a move of around £6million for the former Liverpool striker who to be fair has never really looked like settling at Aston Villa.

I'm sure if a £6million bid came in we'd snap their hands off and that if the chance to play at the San Siro came along Baros would be off, but..........?

I wouldve thought that AC Milan would go for players a little more consistant than Baros

You get the impression that MON doesn't really like him, which is a shame because he's a world class player IMO. I think he'll be gone in January and £6 million would be a fair price
16/11/2006 12:19:00
just get the feeling if he gets the right sort of supply he'd bang them in but I'm not sure we will play to his strengths, he also doesn't look totally up for it, although that could just be confidence.

I agree with Fear! I think he is a class player but whether he fits into O'Neill's style of play is something I have not yet been convinced about. Some people are saying he is low on confidence, which is probably true, but sometimes I feel he has no interest and that could be the factor that see's him leave Villa Park. If he does he will leave the Premiership for good.

I dont think Baros si short of confidence, he just doesnt want to play for us, he's lazy, ship him out and go for Alan Smith
16/11/2006 12:49:00
World class but not willing to show it for Villa is my opinion, so he might aswell go.
16/11/2006 12:55:00
If he does go, I am sure that we can get more than £7 million for him. I think his contract stipulates this?? However despite the ups and downs, the two goals he scored against the dildo sales men from Somali Heath, that effectively sent them down will always live long in the memory. Remember back to that game ..... how loud did you cheer, how high did you jump and how did you feel when you saw him thump the ball into the back of Taylors net? Happy days. UTV

He has a release clause of £17 million I think at which point we would HAVE to sell him. Personally I think MON would accept £5mill.
16/11/2006 13:17:00
His body language shows that he doesn't want to play for the Villa. If the recent events at Villa and a new motivational manager in MON can't get him playing like the rest of the squad then he should go and we should invest in someone who wants to put 100% in week in week out. Maybe the service from midfield is lacking our front men but his performances for his country are much more inspirational than for the Villa. Lets hope he does either hit some form or start showing more commitment but until then MON should be looking at other options.

If you don't start performing I'm going to sell you to AC Milan! that's one hell of a threat.
