Blame Goes To Barry, MON & Randy Lerner?

Blame Goes To Barry, MON & Randy Lerner?

Vital member leebarnett2004 isn't happy and is blaming pretty much everyone for the conclusion of the Gareth Barry saga.

He's asked me to post it on the front page so here goes... fasten your seatbelts, Lee rarely holds back on his views!!!!!

Right this is how I see it.... without any swearing lol.

First of all I feel totally let down and lied to by Gareth Barry, Martin O'Neill and Randy Lerner.

Barry told us on countless occasions that he only leave for a club in the Champions league., Obviously if he went to any of these top 4 teams or even overseas fans would wish him well and understand and when he returned back to play against Aston Villa he would have a good reception. (not that I'm going to boo him).

Instead he chooses to join Manchester city who aren't offering Champions league football or even Europa next season, if he wanted money then he should have just came out and said that, instead of feeding us rubbish about wanting to play in the champions league.

Secondly, the manager, Martin O'Neill. - We always miss out on transfers to teams like Man City, Spurs and Everton. Not only that but our potential replacement for Barry plays for Spurs reserves, what message is that giving out?

I can see other teams looking at Aston Villa as a shop window now, and picking off at what little talent with have at our club.

And finally, our American Cowboy Randy Learner.

Is there really money at this club? Because from what picture I'm looking at i don't think there is..... maybe I'm wrong and I hope I'm proven to be wrong. But I don't think there is, or certainly not as much as he lead us to believe.

We lost Gareth Southgate and also Dwight Yorke in similar circumstances. Its beginning to feel like Ellis all over again, I hope its not and I hope its me who looks like a pratt for writing this by the time the season starts.....

Also I question the Barry transfer, did he leave because maybe he knows something we don't, does he know that we haven't got money in the pot that will bring this club forward?

Why so negative? He's one player who left us, not an entire team... I'm not sure Lerner has once come out and said he was willing to spend x amoung of $ on villa. I think some people need to take a serious step back and grow up a little. Our transfer windows always start this way, almost like if we fire our mouths of warning "if the manager doesn't do this this and this then we'll be in this this and this position." The manager and the chairman aren't part timers, they're fully aware of the situation we're in and am pretty sure they'll be working harder than you or I at rectifying it. Judge a manager's season at the end, judge his transfers at the end of the window. He's got a huge task on his hands, so let's see how he gets on.

Hang on here. Randy has done a great job as has MON. MON bent over backwords to keep Barry at VP and happy, at any other club he would have been sold a long time ago to a worse club as his past actions are not the most professional i.e complaning about MON working on BBC's football coverage. With MON and Randy I think we have the best chance we will ever have. Stay with the cause. Up The Villa!

tbh, I don't think I'd've liked it if he'd joined one of the top 4 any better. It is slightly more galling that he has gone to Citeh but not a fat lot. You're clearly a misery mate cos you can see very little other than doom. The doom and gloom is misplaced, remember how we took Yorke's leaving in our stride, well at least initially, I'm sure we can do the same again. As Johnny says lets wait and see. And the NEXT signing doesn't have to make a huge impact, rather the whole window needs to take us forward, quality and numbers.

Yawn. Move on!! There is no blame. we had his best years, got a great transfer fee and both Man Citeh and ourselves will move on. They are an exception to the whole of the football world and are playing an entirely different market to the rest of the football world. It is a compliment that they can choose almost any player in the world but actually chose one of ours. As for Bluescouse and Spuds beating us to better players. Who has chosen them in preference to the Villa? and as for having a pop at Randy?????? You don't need to wait until next season to get egg on your face . . . . . . you are already covered in it. What a disgraceful post. And before fear has a go at me for having an opinion. That is all this is. My opionion. Up the Villa.
