No, No, No, Please Don't Sell Moore!

No, No, No, Please Don't Sell Moore!

According to The Sunday Mirror, West Bromwich Albion are lining up a bid for Villa striker Luke Moore.

Baggies boss Tony Mowbray has targeted our youth academy graduate and the report suggests Villa might be tempted as they are trying to reach agreement to bring in centre-back Curtis Davis.

All I can say is oh my god don't you dare! Ok, this is just paper talk, but with the likes of Liam Ridgewell and Steven Davis being sold, who knows?

I must admit if I was Luke Moore I would have been gutted this weekend not to start. He is the player who has scored the most goals in pre-season, he was hot on form and yet Gabby Agbonlahor and an unfit and unwell John Carew were selected ahead of him, neither of whom made any impact or threat on the Liverpool goal.

Seems some Villa roulette (much like Russian Roulette but without the bullets!) are being played at Villa. We've made a small squad smaller, not replaced who we have allowed to leave and were left with no recognised right-back OR goalkeeping cover on Saturday. If Stuart Taylor had picked up an injury who exactly would have covered for him against Liverpool?

Unprofessional is the word I'm grappling for I think.

Absolutely gutted if this is true. I really rate the kid. He's never been given the chance. Madness selling davis but understandable to an extent, ridgewell too. But not moore.

He's too good to play in the Championship and he knows it. He might go to a Premiership team but he won't go to Baggies while they're down there.

it was in the mirror so we can assume it is complete rubbish.

100% sure this is paper talk. Why would MON let his 3rd choice striker go to a lower division team, a week after praising the kid and basically saying the skys the limit for him if he grafts!

That would put the tin hat on MON's shambolic transfer window. The only good thing about this story is its a bag of bollokcs.

Would be good if the Club denied some of the rumours that are now being touted about. We have a new regime keeping the lid on our transfer targets but surely it would be in the best interest of all to deny such stories... assuming they aren't true!

maybe he needs to sell Moore to raise money for the players he wants to buy. Looks like Curtis Davies is going to spurs.
