Samuel To Fly Villa Nest

Samuel To Fly Villa Nest

Villa left-back Jlloyd Samuel says he will be off in the summer after not getting a chance in the team since the arrival of Martin O'Neill.

Jlloyd, an ever present only a few years back, hasn't even made the bench for most of this season and the player has confirmed he will be moving to pastures new in the summer.

'I just want a fresh start now, I see my future elsewhere.'

'Martin O'Neill told me to wait for my chance after I returned from injury but it never came. I'm disappointed because I never really got an opportunity to win my place back in the team. I thought I would have been given more chances. Martin has this great reputation as great man-manager and manager but if anyone asks me 'how good he is' I won't be able to answer because I haven't been given a chance to work with him.'

Bolton and Middlesbrough have been reported to be interested several times this year and Charlton were also linked but that was before Alan Curbishly left. That said, who isn't linked to Middlesbrough!? Jlloyd will be able to leave on a free as his contract expires in the summer.

Shame, always thought, with a bit of luck injury wise, he was a decent enough player, I'm sure he'll become one of those players who leaves Villa and excels. Mind you, I've been known to be wrong before now.... not very often though you understand, in fact I think the last time was 1975 when I insisted fruit salads were tastier than black jacks, a decision I lived to regret.......

He's been very poor, apart from one season (like Angel). Like most modern players an over inflated view of his own abilities, always tried his best, but far too mouthy in the press for my liking. Like Hendrie, should have done his talking on the pitch. To try and make out he's leaving because he's not been given a chance - more like he's not good enough and he wants a juicy 40k per week contract with Boro or Bolton, keep his crib pimped up.

Yep,another player who is purely media driven - he`ll have a decent game and he`ll be doing full page interviews in the mail telling everyone about England aspirations,the bloke is a total t@sser,no backbone but i will say against Blues at home last season he was exceptional so i thank him for that but 90% of the time he hid on the pitch and has become a millionaire from being average.

Parma violets were better than fruit salads and black jacks. I realised this in 1974. Why did they stop making the Aztec bars, beats me.

If he has not got the guts to stay and fight for his place in the team and thinks his own ego is more important then in my book - good riddance. We want players who want to fight for their place and are proud to play for Villa.

The fact is the guy is simply not good enough to even warrant a place in the reserves. He had one good season and has gone downhill from there. He was a daydreamer and therefore a liability. I don't like slagging Villa players off but when they come out and slag the manager off when the club is trying its best to improve its PR it totally *****es me off. The guy has had plenty, if any, too many opportunities and time and time again has failed to live up to the expectations.
