He is a quality player, but will the attraction of more regular football coax him away from VP? Personally I hope not an should have been given a fairer crack of the whip while Petrov looks out of touch.

Big decisions need to be made, he was good LAST season. It all depends on who we can get in of course. Hasn't Sidwell just signed a bumper new deal? Reo Coker looks tasty, but Davis has potential and needs a run of games. I am unsure if he'll get that opportunity.

Thought it was Kitson who signed. The chairman said last night Sidwell hasn't.

Why sell a player who is Villa through and through and could produce at a high level and take in another mercenary (Reo-Coker) who would only be coming for the money and after this season has not looked much better than Davies. Or have I missed West Ham soaring up the table? If we want a hammer, I would go for Ashton.

Villa have many promising players but not many who can hold there own. Davis may or may not make the grade but coker and Sidwell are more progressed at the moment and would help our cause more than the promising Davis. Methinks MON doesn't fancy him anyway.

It might come down to whether Steve wants out, which may well be the case if his circumstances haven't changed come seasons end. Should he feel that his long term Villa Park future look bleak, then he may well push the issue and ask for a move. Being a current Norn Iron international he obviously wants to be playing regular club football, and that hasn't happened for him at B6 this season.

I have wondered why Davis has not been brought in for Petrov yet, considering Petrov goes missing in nearly every game i have watched this year. I have come to the conclusion that petrov is in the team for his batteling qualities, and because he is a stronger player than davis. Because at the moment we are not playing much football, and playing a lot of long ball tactics. I think both players would be more suited to a passing game, and both struggle with our style at the moment, particularly davis because of his size. I have complete faith in MON ability and understand that the team is in a transisional peroiod this season, i think it would be a risk to start working on differant styles this late in the season. Which is why i am looking forward to next season, when hopfully we will play a bit of football which will be much more suited to both Petrov and davis' game.

Oh, there is no way we should get rid of Dais, he is absolute class and i think we will see it again next year.

The commentator on tonights N Ireland game said "I was speaking to Davis earlier and he is not happy about been left out of the side" He had a great game for Ireland and on this form should be playing for the Villa.

Very interesting to hear that Col. As I say, it may well be Steve who brings thing to a head. He cant be happy sitting on the bench, not after the season he had 2005-06. He wasn't playing particularly well when initially sidelined, but it is somewhat surprising that he hasn't been given an opportunity to re-establish himself in the team.
