Friendly - Basingstoke 2 Villa 1

Friendly - Basingstoke 2 Villa 1

There isn't a mention of this yet on the Official Site, but the Villa twitter feed has been keeping us up to speed.

Unfortunately the Villa XI won't be coming home on the back of a win but then we did only have 1 upfront.

The starting 11 were:

Parish, L. Young, Hogg, Cuellar, Davies, Shorey, Albrighton, Osbourne, Bannan, Herd, Forrester.

Subs: Lichaj, Siegrist, Clark, Collins (not Welsh James), Berry, Deeney, Flanaghan, Halfhuid, Burke, Taylor.

Graham Burke grabbed Villa's consolation goal and Chris Herd knocked in an own goal.

Hopefully we'll get more details later on the Official Site concerning subs and the like.

Strange that the 'experimental' line-up included Carlos Cuellar. Or is it? A team full of youngsters and want rid-of's, augmented by the appearance of CC. Like others who've commented, I believe that being prepared to off-load Curtis Davies is a big, big mistake (include Luke Young in that category too), and I keep hoping that neither player will attract any bidders. Even if we do decide to cash in on them though, I hope and trust that we've got better players already in house before we allow them to leave. As for the game/result, no doubt a useful work out for all involved, another half step along the way to full fitness. A big season ahead for many of our younger, fringe players. Good Luck to them all.

glensider, whether Davies stays or goes, he won't be playing for Villa again because of the clause in his contract that entitles him to a substantial payrise after X number of appearances. Unfortunately, this clause is public knowledge, and other clubs know that we are in a weak position. Realistically, the best thing that can happen is Davies becoming first choice, and him signing a new contract. But with Collins, Dunne, and also our right back Carlos, at the club, the chances of that happening are slim to zero. We will have to bite the bullet and allow him to leave for a cut-price fee (I'd guess £3-4m), or watch him run his contract down. In Luke Young's case, I can't see him being anything other than backup if no-one snaps him up, perhaps even behind Beye - although I would be astonished if no-one came in for him, and merely surprised if a top club didn't take him off our hands.

We need to keep Davies for another season of games awaits and I'm sure the ever increasing age of CC, RD and JCollins will mean the fresher younger legs of Davies will come in handy and eventually he will push Collins to one side for his spot. CC will still be played out of position and Sunderland will buy HB. If you look at it like that then we can do it...I'm sure he wont be begrudged a payrise if he's competing and I think he will, lest we do a Cahill again!?!?!??!

jsut don't think that is the case Albarnista, if we keep him he'll play. Remember it wasn't the clubs fault he got injured before he reached the play target to trigger a new deal!

I'd have Davies over Collins. With an experienced player alongside him (like when Laursen was) I think he is a better player. Collins has a tendency to get caught out of position at times, but has very good recovery. I'd rather have the player in position though personally. Keep him, get him fit, show the contract clause don't bother us and play him.
