MON Savages Curtis Davies Agent!

MON Savages Curtis Davies Agent!

Martin O'Neill has quite rightly savaged Curtis Davies agent who made some pathetic comments last week which will only serve to alienate the player with the fans and the club - maybe the player should now step in and apologise for any offense caused, especially to the many thousands of Villa (and other) fans struggling to find gainful employment during the economic crisis which seemingly has passed by many players judging by their lack of respect towards those who struggle to pay for their tickets to watch these 'heroes'.

Bloody hell that was a long sentence!

MON looks like he was less than impressed with the junk the agent spoke last week: The Woes Of Curtis Davies

The Villa boss told the press, including this in the Daily Mail that he had always thought that contracts were private 'but if the agent of a player chooses to divulge them then that's entirely up to them.'

He agrees that Davies will be able to start talks and re-negotiate his contract after 60 games (he is 2 off, is it MON's fault that he is currently injured and can't play?) adding, that he didn't really want to have to be talking about this publicly and saying that Villa look after the players well at the club and with a bit of a barb adds, including injured players!

He also says that the agent knows where Villa stand already, 'I was very pleased that he had played some matches, when really he probably wasn't completely fit - in the sense that it was psychological if not physical that the shoulder might come out at any given stage again. So from that viewpoint we're grateful. But all of those things are all taken into consideration when eventually we sit down and decide to do it (negotiate a contract), naturally.'

The most telling part though, 'There are certain guidelines but this idea that 'he is considering his future', I'm not so sure that that's the brightest thing that an agent - and a player who's controlling his agent - should be saying.'

Well said MON, to go to the club with the concerns is fine and indeed dandy, to go to the press and start talking about the woes of someone on £25 000 or so a week is plain pathetic.

Mr Fear, I would argue that it is indeed O'Neill's fault that Davies is currently injured. If Davies had got this operation in the summer, or preferrably as soon as the problem was obvious, then he would be available for selection. But, a contract is a contract, and so, technically, Davies should grin and bear the unfortunate situation he finds himself in, curtesy of O'Neill. And it would obviously look bad if he got a substantial payrise whilst he was injured. Having said all that, given the sacrifice Davies made - no doubt at the request of O'Neill - in playing on with a dodgy shoulder, and consequently producing understandably substandard displays, I can understand why he is making an issue of just two games, even if, as you say, it wasn't the wisest move from a PR perspective.

Sorry, but i think that it would be a completely ridiculous argument that it is MON fault Davies is out injured. There are physios and doctors that advise the player and Davies free make up his own mind.

I don't think Albarnista is being unreasonable to suggest that everyone knew Davies had a dodgy shoulder going into the summer and that there were months where surgery would have meant less impact on the Villa first team during the season. I don't know why Charizma is so upset by something that dares to suggest the club might have made a mistake over the summer.
