Jlloyd Samuel To Remain Professional

Jlloyd Samuel To Remain Professional

Villa left-back Jlloyd Samuel says he will give life at Villa 100% despite the fact he has conceded he will probably have to move on in the summer, which he can do on a free as his contract runs out at the end of this season, in order to get first team football.

The 26-year-old (well, 25 until Thursday but who is quibbling?) told his own icons site:

'There are eight games left and I am still a Villa player, so I'll always give 100 per cent - even though it looks as though this could be my last season at the club. I have had a great career here and, as I say, lots of good memories but it could be time for a new chapter to begin. I haven't complained all season, I've been really professional and I've been waiting for my chance to come, but it doesn't look like it's going to happen. So I have to take matters into my own hands and I want a fresh start.'

'Although it has been frustrating, I am still training 100 per cent and giving my all here, as I am still an Aston Villa player. But in my opinion the time has come to let the club know how I'm feeling, I think it's only right to do so. Lot of things have changed since I joined the club - I have seen lots of managers come and go and I have made lots of friends here; some have moved on but there's a few left. However it feels like my time at the club is coming to an end as well.'

'The last eighteen months have seen a few injuries and I have been in and out of the side, which has made it my worst season ever. I know I had a bad injury, but I am fit now and I feel like I have been forgotten. It will be quite weird if I were to leave, but sometimes you need a new challenge and I'm sure if I go I will respond well and pick up where I left off.'

Well whoop de loop JLloyd.....if perhaps you'd have been more professional before we decided to turf you out then you'd be getting a new contract....I can't beleive the big deal that he's making out of this, he's simply not good enough! The bloke is as bad as Carlton Cole!

Back to your crib bwoy. Go and join Lee Hendrie. Wonder how much he got for the article? No class. Should keep his mouth shut and realise how much face he is losing by crying off to the media. He had one good season under Son Of Ellis and then went and became a cribmeister fantastapimp! Do 1.

Shame that it all went wrong for him. It wasn't all that long ago that we were all singing his praises. He looked a Villa Park regular for many seasons to come, and stood on the verge of breaking into the international team. He's got the ability to come good again, and no doubt he will. But sadly his future obviously doesn't lie at Villa Park.

Just hope he doesn't go the another Prem. Club, especially Man. City and do another "Vassell" against us.

Vassell was inconsistent anyhow - as poor Pearce has found out. Gone to a bigger and better club - hahahahahaha! That'll teach yuo to drive around camcording yourself in a sports car with hagers on getting up to silly antics while playing for the Villa - you know what I mean, Darius. JLS will go to Bolton and then eventually fade away.

Agree with koolbill. Apart from his goals against us, Vass has done virtually nothing for Manchester City, and his career has done downhill since he left Villa Park. Hard to believe that he was an England international not too long ago. I think though that JLloyd might just get his career back on track with a move. As things stand though here at B6, he's standing still.
