Welcome to B6 Stevie Ireland

Welcome to B6 Stevie Ireland

Stephen Ireland has signed a new 4 year contract with Villa following the eventual cash plus swop deal involving James Milner.

Caretaker boss Kevin MacDonald has already said of the arrival:

'This is a great signing for the club, Stephen is an outstanding young talent who will complement the talented players we already have here.'

Stephen himself has conducted his first Villa based interview on the Official Site and was obviously looking forward to training and working his way into Big Mac's plans with him having an eye on the Newcastle fixture for his debut.

'My number one target is to work hard for my team mates, and show them what I can bring to the table. When I get my chance on the ball, hopefully I'll shine aswell.'

Ireland describes his welcome to the club as joining a new family, and he's looking forward to settling in.

'I am really excited, I have only been here a day but I know what it is about already. It's a family club. I've seen lots of happy faces and friendly faces so I am looking forward to building up a relationship with the fans and my new team mates.'

He'll no doubt have regrets, and be sad to leave Manchester City just like the Dunneymonster was but if he can slot in as quickly and get back to his best, like Dunne did, then despite our disappointment at seeing the Millyman go we hopefully won't miss him too much.

Welcome Mr Ireland!

Welcome Steven. Lads, lighten up, ManCity fans didn't choose their owners. They sure as hell are enjoying a bit of a ride though aren't they?

I'm shocked you had to be warned about people like Avdom and P.avfc Robson, maybe in Manchester as your 2 premier league clubs both spend obcene amounts of money you don't get so much stick. But I assure you, you're no longer the lovable little tykes that opposing fans wouldn't hate losing to. The way you do your business, the way you treat players both at your own club and at others and the fact that every penny we spend on petrol makes you stronger makes you just about the easiest club to hate in the Prem. Deal with it

Avdom, Pavfc, a few Chelsea fans warned us we'd encounter people like you so I won't waste my breath, except to yawn.

Ireland swopped for Milner - but it ain't that simple is it? One is described as a power player, the other as a creative player. Forgive me if I'm wrong, but doesn't that mean they play different ways and therefore the players around them will need to change some of what they do? One of our problems is static forwards who do not anticipate moves. In this case how are they going to respond to a creative player looking to make telling passes into err space? Looks to me as though Mr Ireland may be the break that the Fonz has been waiting for as he seems to be the most natural forward we have.

Welcome Stevie, you will have a great time at this great club. Maximum effort = maximum reward here. We will be there or thereabouts compared to Citeh, so lets 'do 'em' and finish above 'em!

Get used to it RobsonGreenSleeves nobody respects the way man city are now, win things or not, nobody could give a toss except ripping as much money out of you as they can

Welcome Stevie Ireland to B6 and the family of Aston Villa. We will be patient but expect great things eventually. Learn from Dunny as he will help you settle no doubt. Looking forward to your debut at Newc. UTV.

1 good season in 10,but the guy is only 22?No wonder City were a yo-yo club until recently,you'll win nothing with kids!

olofthegreat, so that was "proper" as you say? That was the way to grow a club? To build in the correct way? To give a manager time? A really good manager has just walked out on you because you were a "proper" club? Or did you mean since then? As you can see from my first post I didn't come for an argument but when you come on banging on about growing a "proper" club it made me wonder what you meant, so i replied, in a light hearted way.
