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

O'Leary 'Disappointed'.

David O'Leary has spelt out his disappointment at Eirik Bakke being sent back to Leeds before his loan deal ended. He also indicates that he doesn't think there will be another loan signing incoming:

He told the official site 'I don't think there's really much out there. So I think what we have is what we'll go with until the end of the season.'

The reason why there isn't much out there for O'Leary to go for could also be that most clubs want a loan fee for a player, Robert Huth who may be available from Chelsea for instance, would probably cost 250k or more on top of his wages. With NO money at all to spend at Villa, those sort of loans won't be an option.

He added: 'I'm very disappointed. The bottom line is that I wanted to keep him. But it's not happened and that's all I can say about it. I think he's done well in some games, like the Bolton draw. Wherever he goes, I think he'll be a really good player.'

Hmmm. Strange things happening at Villa! It isn't about the player for me, I don't care about Eirik Bakke. What I do worry about is we now have a manager who doesn't appear to have a say in which player stays and which player goes. SO what happens if bids come in for Delaney, Hendrie, Samuel or De La Cruz? Do we sell them and stretch the squad even further?

I know what I'd do if I was the manager. WALK.
