'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Jlloyd Samuel - Cliché Warning!

Jlloyd Samuel says he has spoken with Martin O'Neill and is now 'very positive' about his future.

The 25-year-old left back, who is out of contract in the summer, told the official site:

'I have spoken briefly to Martin O'Neill about my future at the club and it was all very positive. It was good to be a sub again and get that little bit closer to playing for the first team. It finished 0-0, which was a great result in the end and a good performance from all the lads. To gain a point and take two away from Chelsea is fantastic and in terms of confidence we really needed it.'

He also told his icons site that he feels his level is the premiership and that is where he intends to stay 'whether it's at Villa or somewhere else'.

Get him fit and raring to go and - get ready for the cliché - it would be like a new signing for us!

Any player returning from long term Injurie need time to get to speed I wonder how long MON will be giving players before making a decision on their future.

agreed, just hope they get him back to the player he was, as I thought he was coming along great 2 seasons ago.
The Fear
A chance to play for the first team again, he must be over the moon, as long as he takes each game as it comes, and if he's got a good engine and covers every blade of grass, possibly even scoring a goal early doors then he might get a new contract, but that decision will go to the wire, and if he doesn't get a new contract, I have a feeling that he will be as sick as a parrott.

Sorry I don't rate this guy at all. He isn't as bad going forward - as he is defesivley. I suspect MON has already made up his mind about him. Interesting that quotes come only from the player....I suspect he knows he needs another club. I would say his level is the championship at best
qKing
Lets give him every opportunity, he deserves that. He certainly hasn't become a bad player overnight. I'm on the side of those that believe JLloyd still has a lot to offer the club, and hopefully he'll rediscover his form of a couple of seasons back, and win the doubters (including MON maybe) over.

He has been a consistently bad player for around 2/3 seasons. I personally think that at 25 he is never gonna fulfill the promise he shown in his first season, time to move on i think.
mackaavfc
Began to beleave his own hype and then got to cocky on the pitch cant remember how many times we were scored against when he messed up out on the right hand side.
sk1nner80
lol him and de la cruz were a force to be reckoned with...wingers must have been quaking in their boots facing them 2!!
son_of_cher
Consistantly bad and always a liability for a while last season he gave some of the worst performances Ive ever seen a professional footballer give.
Pking
Deliberate mistake ment left hand side
sk1nner80
i was thinking mabye us oaying £4-5million and offer Samuel in exchange for Nugent????
Newman
He wasnt too bad when he came on in midfield against ManYoo...
xfranc
from todays little run out, I would be sorely tempted to keep him, but early days yet.
steff_the_villan
Looks like he is ready to make his place in the permanant... thank Christ the one back,,,,,,, how many to go?
col8
Maybe he has to move on to re-ignite his career?
