Really disappointed to see him go. Understand why MON has sold him though, if he wasn't impressed with form or attitude... I'm most disappointed he didn't wish to up his game and win his place back.

MON has really got to get his finger out now and sign 5 or 6 players that are better than what has left ..!

starting to get nervous now, that was a quality player we just let go. He must have some big ones line up. Im so nervous I have a big one of my own lined up. Also I hope the fee reflected his ability - if NRC is 8.5m he must be worth at least 5m.

F*** now am really angry O'Neil said he would let ppl leave who didn't want to stay but I didn't know it included everyone god Martin please stop letting everyone leave If Carew leaves am really gonna flip because at the moment we have only brought 1 player in and Pre season has already started which means if we do get anyone else they might not be ready for the new campaign

We better be signing a top quality replacement,I dont see what we have to gain by letting good players go.

I think this reflects how much the mentality of the club has changed. Instead of being a club that has to do what it can to keep its better players, we are now obviously looking to try and improve upon them. Also did SD ask for a transfer?? as i don't recall it being made public

I have this in transfer thread - but what the hell it needs to be said: We have just sold a real gem of a player he cleaned up as player and young player of the year season before last. Would Villa fans be happy is MON sold Barry or Agbonlahor next summer if they have a poor season. Actually let me rephrase that - if they have as good (or slightly better) season than others in their position (Berger or Moore) - I have said this because he was no worse than the player keeping him out of the team i.e. Petrov. One so-so season when your opportunities are limited doesnt make you a bad player. Gardner or Osbourne coming in and playing well in half a dozen games does not make them better than Davis who has 20+ international caps for a team which has jumped 100 places in the rankings and beat Spain, Sweden and England in recent years. Is anyone else thinking along the same lines or is it just us Ulstermen!!!???!!! The stuff about him kicking up a fuss I find hard to believe - I am mates with his old schoolmate who catches up with him when Davis is back in Co. Antrim (genuine - this isnt the usual bull with my sisters cousins mate etc) and he has spoken of how he doesnt want to leave Villa and gets on great with MON.

What a damn shame. O'Neill better step up the revolution, cos he needs alot of players to fill in for the ones hes let go. Still, Davis was actin like he didnt even want to put up any sort of fight like he expected to be in the first team every week. Either way, hope he does good for himself, but i think we'll be doing better

Steven Davis gone, a mistake?? not at all, nice one MON, get rid of the players who are not willing to up their games, who have no fighting spirit, who expect a massive paycheck and an automatic first team place, so what if we have to build from the ground up, I would rather that, then put up with massive egos who don't perform well unless they feel like it, it is about time managers stopped putting up with it. this is ASTON VILLA they should be proud to play for us and fight tooth and nail to wear the claret and blue.
