71% Back Steven Davis

71% Back Steven Davis

Well, according to The Mirror today, Steven Davis wants out of Villa Park because Martin O'Neill won't play him where he wants to be, in the centre of the midfield. According to the report, the Villa boss see's Davis as a flanker. I think it was flanker anyway! Obviously the bastion of all things football will have it wrong and according to the last poll we ran, 71% would be gutted to see him leave.

We asked, in a poll suggested by deano.avfc, Which 'fringe' player would you most like to KEEP at Villa?

Steven Davis 71%

Next up was defender Liam Ridgewell with 12% and Czech midfielder Patrik Berger with 10%

The rest were:

Mark Delaney 3%.

Stuart Taylor 2%

Lee Hendrie 1%
Jlloyd Samuel 1%

Aaron Hughes 0%
Eric Djemba-Djemba 0%
Chris Sutton 0%

Our latest poll is the usual prediction poll for the weekends match against Manchester City. Win, lose or draw?

There is no point keeping him, if a) he doesn't get a chance to play a run of games b) we sign someone better. Personally I think Parker would be a good addition (if Sidwell goes to Newcastle)

I certainly dont particularly want to see Steven Davis up and off, but if the guy is unhappy, as I suspect he may well be, then maybe it would be better all round if he were allowed to move on. We dont want to enter a very important season for the club carrying unhappy or disgruntled players. Steven may well find that the grass isn't always greener, but he certainly deserves the option to check that out himself if he so decides.

This story comes from an interview MON gave where it was he who said Steve Davis would prefer to play in the middle. There hasn't been a single quote attributed to the guy himself and MON has given no indication that he has an unhappy player. In fact, MON said recently that he's sure Davis will have a much better season next year. I think as fans we are still stuck with an anxiety that our good players will always be able to find greener pastures elsewhere. In fact (Jlloyd and Baros aside) any player I've read interviews with has been desperate to stay, they know that the club is going places. Besides, the rumours suggest that Fulham are Davis' likely destination. He would have to be out of his mind to want to step aboard a sinking ship like the cottagers

Will he get a chance in the last three games?

Just had a butchers at the Toon site - they are sure they're getting Sidwell. Surely we must have a chance. Emphasises the fact why we maybe should not bother, save wads of cash and stick with Davo.
