Berger Joins Hendrie At Stoke

The club have announced that former Liverpool and Portsmouth midfielder Patrik Berger has joined Championship outfit Stoke City on loan until January 4.

No news on fellow Stoke loanee Lee Hendrie being re-called, so Berger could line up with his fellow midfielder at the Britannia Stadium this weekend against the Baggies.

This surely spells the end of a failed Villa career for the 33-year-old former Czech Republic star? The signing by David O'Leary never made sense anyway, if he wasn't good enough to last a whole match for Portsmouth, why would it have been any different at Villa? Shame, because in his prime, he was top class.

i thought we needed numbers in mifiled as injuries and suspension o well MON knows best

Interesting because on from he is class, but injuries have prevented this and with the midfielders we ahve at the moment doing so well, he was struggling for a game, especially as a 433 formation doesn't particularly suit his style of play.
Tierney
possibly just a way of making sure his match fitness is up to standard, which will not do him or us any harm, is this another 24hour recall job???

Top player, injuries sadly taken their toll.

Wasn't the best replacement for the hammer.

Always thought it very strange that we didn't make more of an effort to keep Hitz. Thats another story for another day though I guess. As for Berger, class footballer, superb striker of a ball, who sadly we just didnt see the best of at Villa Park. The warning signs were there though during the best part of his stay at Pompey. It was obvious his better days were behind him, and he had become very injury prone. Strange signing by O'Leary.

too old, dont think he will be missed. Is stoke becoming the new middlesborough (Villa player recycling centre).

The Stokies for the play-offs?
