Jlloyd Samuel Will Fight For Place

Jlloyd Samuel Will Fight For Place

Aston Villa left-back Jlloyd Samuel has said he isn't interested in a loan deal and wants to fight for his place in the team.

Samuel has recovered from a string of injuries and is now hoping to prove his worth, although he has yet to make the bench with Gareth Barry being preferred at left back ahead of Dutch international Wilfred Bouma.

Samuel, who was an ever present just a couple of seasons ago and thought to be on the verge of England, has suffered from injuries and a subsequent drop in form over the last season or so and his contract runs out in the summer meaning he is free to talk to other clubs from tomorrow onward.

Samuel said: 'I'm not going to consider going out on loan to get games. I feel I can get myself fit here by working hard and getting back into the team.'

Thought he was fit. Be interesting to see if he is selecetd over the next few games, if not I guess that is another one set to go.

Nice to hear, a fit and up for it JLloyd is a bonus, another player who has the ability to be special, just a few moore from the injury list and the teams looking better already. UTV

Good talk isn't it? Doesn't want a loan, wants to prove himself, deserves a chance I think, if he can get back to the form of a few seasons ago when they were talking up his England chances, he could save us a fortune and he used to get to the bye line quite often linking up with Barry on the left.

I agree that Jlloyd looked a decent player when he first broke into the side, what has he done since though? I really dont think MON will play him unless he has absolutely no choice, can anyone disagree he has looked a liability every time he has played over the last 2/3 seasons? With that said if i he does play i will back him 100%.

Well he certainly appears to have the right attitude and approach, despite his troubles over the past two seasons. Freddie Bouma has been far from convincing since arriving at the club, so an opportunity must still exist for JLloyd. The ball is very definitely in his court. Its make or break time JLloyd.

With possible new players coming in it is Important for fringe players/Injured players to make their mark. MON did not panic into bringing Lee Hendrie back. So I guess JLS will also have to prove him-self in the reserves before getting a slot on the 1st team sheet.

Should atleast make the bench tonight vs Chelsea. Dont think he's good enough personally but will back him if he plays.

we should back everyone of our team, like them or not. It effects the team, and if ever they needed a pick up tonight is one of them.
