Sometimes the press put 2+2 together and come up with whatever answer they want, however this one surely has some substance to it, if not in the price and target club, in the fact that Nigel Hokey-Cokey appears to have a very long road back if he wants to play regularly for Villa again after the 'incident' with Villa boss Martin O'Neill?
He was sent home as we all know and told to come back on Monday when things would be assessed. Well, and we could be reading too much into it I guess, he got back into training but didn't make the Carling Cup team v Cardiff and although he got back on the bench in our defeat to Blackburn Rovers, he didn't get a look in on the pitch.
As Thomas Sorensen found out before him, you simply don't cross a manager like MON, he is old school and is right when he says HE is the boss, his word goes, there is surely no other way to run a team?
Today The Mirror are suggested that Roy Hodgson has targeted a £3million move for the 25-year-old former West Ham midfielder to take him to Fulham in the January transfer window.
£3m? Would we really accept such a low fee for someone we paid over £8million for? If he was going so cheap, I would imagine that Appy Arry would also return as he was rumoured (only a press rumour mind you) to have been interested through the summer, only for Villa to ask for £7million which Spurs didn't want to pay. So will MON be tempted in January to cut and run for whatever they can raise for the player?
Our latest poll asks if NRC's Villa career is effectively over.
MON has been asked several times - most amusingly by Pat Murphy - but won't be drawn on the incident or comment apart from saying 'there is nothing to say'. Well, there sort of is but hey, only because we are all hungry for every ounce of information we can get on any subject matter Villa related!
