Bardsley Has One Foot In Garden!
Another nice positive set of quotes, this time from Manchester United's on loan defender Phil Bardsley.
Looks like Phil thinks Villa are more than moving in the right direction and that he would like to be a permanent part of the Randylution!
He told the official site: 'I think Villa have their foot in the garden now and I honestly believe we are moving the right direction.'
'We'. Like it!
Adding: 'This is a club that has been in the wilderness for too long but I think it is time that Villa, with the stadium that they have, the training ground they are building, and the players they are bringing in, are moving forward. When I see the quality of our squad and I look at where we are in the league table, it does not seem right. We should be higher up. But every team suffers a dip in confidence and we had that. Look at other teams, like Manchester City, who are doing okay now after a poor run.'
With Villa currently in 14th and out of both cups, Bardsley says with some optimism following the 2-0 victory over Watford: 'It happens. I am sure we will put a few results together and rise up the table. I think we will soon be pushing for a European spot, even this season. It is not out of the question.'
And on his future: 'If my future is to be at Aston Villa, I would be happy with that. It depends on whether the manager wants me here or not. I will have to see how it pans out.'
