Ash Delighted With Houllier

As Ash headed off on England duty he had words of praise for new manager Gerard Houllier and again restated his confidence in a new deal being done.

Speaking to SSN Ashley again said he was happy at the club, and that he'd been impressed by the new managerial appointment and he liked the plans that the club have for pushing on in both the league but also in terms of securing some long needed silverware.

'I am delighted with the manager and the new regime and the way things are going. I've got two years left on my contract and I am sure everything will get sorted.'

Houllier himself has already stated his desire to keep Ash at the club, so it seems a happy camp all round.

Sadly the cynic would point out that player contracts mean very little thesedays, but if the club can sort Ash's contract out sooner rather than later it'll send a great message to the faithful following our troublesome start to the season and would certainly help keep spirits high.

What an excellent good news story! Good on young Ashley for stating how things are. Great interview.

Great news hopefully he will sign a new contract soon after england duty TuBBz- What do you mean when we do sell him?? He obviously likes it at villa so why would he want to go and why would we want to sell

Keeping Ashley happy and going no where is more important than a new signing IMHO. Agree that its great news, and as Jonathan has already stated, it even better when so many other players are not only stating their contentment with new boss, but are even more importantly responding to it on the pitch! I am getting increasingly more confident of a top 6 finish at least, and a good cup run or even silverware! Why not! UTV!

It would have been such a disaster if Ashley had wished to leave the ship following MON's resignation! It shows no one is bigger than the club. MON might not have got that bit right, but the players have!
