Petrov Is A Happy Bunny

Petrov Is A Happy Bunny

I'm never sure what to make of articles when a players agent talks, especially when they say their player is happy where they are!

Stiliyan Petrov's agent is quoted on Sky Sports saying the midfielder is happy at Villa and is looking forward to next season.

Maybe I'm just not used to agents saying anything positive?

If Petrov has settled down following last summers move from Celtic, he could have a major impact for us and justify his large transfer fee. Hey, it'd be like a new signing really!!!!

His agent, Tony McGill, said of the 28-year-old Bulgarian international:

'I spoke to Stiliyan the other day - he rang me to tell me how well things were going. He is happy with the new signings, he's happy with the training and he's been very bullish about the whole thing. Wherever you go, it always takes a little while to settle in and he was in rented accommodation with his family which didn't help. But Stiliyan has bought a new house and he is very settled now.'

Adding: 'Stiliyan is 100% happy at Aston Villa. He told me that he can see a difference in the place already and that it is a lot better than this time last year. It's all very positive and he can see a real buzz about the place.'

Cool, all sounds good to me!

I would take this as a statement of intent.He moved down from Scotland 2 weeks before the season, not his own pad and his missus had a kid.So they say moving house is the most stressful thing you can do.I think moving countries, jobs, house and having a kid is enough to knock anyone back a little.He is settled knows what is expected of him....So..No excuses not to deliver!!..come on Stan...get stuck in son!

I find this strange. It has been months now since the 'Petrov is unhappy at villa' stories. So why is his agent coming out now to say he is happy? Should we be worried because Gareth Barry's agent hasn't come out to say the same?

Of course he's happy, and he's about to have a season that will silence the doubters and the knockers. A class act, admittedly took a little time to settle in, but I saw him put in some very good performances last season that bode well for the upcoming campaign. Go get 'em Stan!!

Zzzzzz is this what the close season has come to? At least there is some international competition next year to ease the pain / boredom.
