He's Fast And Scores... Signs A New Deal

He's Fast And Scores... Signs A New Deal

Bit of good news... or should that be a bit more good news?

Gabby Agbonlahor has signed a new four-and-a-half year contract and says he thinks he will be at Villa for life.

Take note mercenary players, a player with love for a club and loyalty.

Gabby told the official site: 'I can't see myself playing for any other club.'

Gabby says he is 'delighted` to have signed his new deal. Wonder if Ashley Young would now be able to concentrate enough to be able to also sign a new deal and show some loyalty to the mighty claret and blue?

'I am happy and I just want to keep on playing for Villa. It's my childhood club. It's the club I support and love and I just want to keep playing and improving year on year. I am happy to commit to the club. Hopefully I can progress and keep improving on what I've done so far." Adding, 'If you look at other clubs and the likes of Steven Gerrard with Liverpool. You can't see him playing anywhere else. And it's the same with me........It's the club I love and I'm happy.

What a refreshing change!

Think about it though, Gabby will now be on high wages, it would have taken a while to come to a compromise because Gabby's contract talks actually started at the end of last season! God knows why but the bigger the player the longer contract talks last. Albrighton signed a new deal because he would be more than happy with any wage increase because he wasn't on a massive wage a few weeks ago. Same for Clarke, Lichaj etc. NRC is now in talks and they have stepped up more now he is injured and has more time for talks. If Ash were to get injured until January then I think he would sign a new deal now but he has gone to the press time and time again saying he wants to stay and we have no reason to doubt him, he's never lied to us before, why would he lie? He could have said nothing on the matter or said he will decide at the end of the season but he has been quoted saying he wants to stay. I'm not worried about Ash's future but very pleased with Gabby signing on!

Nice one Gabby, now get match fit and start banging them in. Although this is a great boost for the club it certainly doesn't mean that another bigger club can't come in and tempt Gabby in the future, contracts don't seem to matter these days unfortunately, its more about player power!

If Ash don't sign he is risking a bad injury and no long term income. Thats his gamble to take. If he gets injured next week and can never play agian his income is limited to the length of his contract. I have no idea about insurance though!

How bloody refreshing!! A 24-year-old in the Premier League actually understanding what the word loyalty means. Carry on James Milner, put the hours in to improve yourself (Mancini quote I understand). Gabby, let's hope you grow to become a Villa legend. Unapologetically wimpish, I believe this is a day to savour as to what this club means to us all - Gabby included. And, let's hope this is the day where we can really kick Man Utd's butt. Finally, come on Ash, put pen to paper now.

Another piece of good news, following on from the decision of Cieran Clark to pen his new extended deal just a week or so back. Gabby continues to improve and develop, and hopefully has a very important role to play in the immediate future of AVFC. I was particularly pleased to read and hear Gabby's positive words, and when a key performer like Gabby is only too keen to put pen to paper and commit his future to the club, you have to believe that the players clearly feel that the club is on the right track. After the doom and gloom of the summer months, when the club appeared to be in turmoil, you have to sense that as The Beatles once sang, 'I have to admit its getting better, a little better all the time'.

I hope he comes back from injury and plays like his pants are on fire. When he does, he's outstanding. I don't think he's consistent enough yet, and he's had more than his fair share of injury troubles. Great to see such a statement of commitment from the lad, now let's hope he backs that up with the kind of performances we know he can give, week in week out. Starting in about 35 minutes against ManUre. UTV
