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

Jlloyd Samuel Staying Positive

Jlloyd Samuel is weighing up his options after speculation linking him to a summer move.

The 25-year-old left-back, who has been plagued for several seasons with niggling injury problems and now finds himself behind Wilfred Bouma in the squad reckoning, told the official site:

'There has been a lot of speculation linking me to Bolton Wanderers recently, as well as Middlesbrough and Portsmouth. I don't know a great deal about it to be honest, I'm just concentrating on my football for Aston Villa. Personally I am dying to get another chance to show what I can do. I am always hungry to play, no matter what game it is.'

'It's just a case of getting my chance. Hopefully I will, but I'm not alone. Everyone in the squad wants that chance. There are nine games left now and you've always got to stay positive and expect that you're going to get an opportunity to play. I'm not thinking that it's not going to happen. But if you aren't playing towards the end of the season you have got to look at other options, we'll have to see what happens in May.'

Hunger to play... sounds like he is taking himself up to try and get some interest from other clubs.

Well if he wants to go he can go, if he stays he will have to accept that under MON no player has a devine right to have a place in the team.

Getting boring now. Will he? Wont he? He needs to knuckle down and prove himself if he truly wants to remain at Villa Park. He's lost his way I'm afraid. Maybe a change of scenery is the only answer to get him back on the rails.

Can't blame him for keeping his name in the shop window though, the lad is young and has a career ahead of him, I'd like to see him stay and prove himself, I still reckon he is a really good player but hey ho, down to MON who he wants, maybe he has someone else in mind to buy in the summer. Still need to see us build a squad not to let so many players leave before bringing new ones in, I'm sure with the change of regime that won't be allowed to carry on happening.
The Fear
It's hard to judge on what goes on behind closed doors. Saying that a certain few players have not been given a chance at Villa and a few have been offloaded very quickly by MON. I'm sure MON has been fair to all players and those he hasn't given the chance to we can only speculate about the reasons why. One thing I know is MON expects honesty and hard work so which category has JLS failed? Two choices and a win win situation whichever you pick.
