Almost An Entire Villa Defense To Be Sold?
So, could be all change come the summer for our defence. Lets be honest, it HAS to be, and in so many ways, should have been last summer! It would have all changed if Gerrard Houllier had been fit enough to remain, I can understand that McLeish had to assess himself although obviously it has wasted yet another season for us fans. That is the problem with no stability managerial wise, everything is always in transition! I digress.
We reported the other day that Richard Dunne was wanted by Sunderland: ( Click Here )
Stephen Warnock was also linked to MON`s new Club, ( click here ) and is again today, this time in The Sun (link to Villa page not working when I just tried).
The paper suggest that O`Neill will bid £2.5m for the 30-year-old full back as he looks to repeat the same mistakes he made at Villa by accruing a highly paid dads army where you then can`t move on the players and they have little to no sell on fee. Our problem? Not anymore. Bad luck to the Mackems though!
Out of the three, James Collins is probably the one I`d most like to keep, not keen on his (or Dunne`s ... or Warnock`s .. conduct last season, or some times this season, however he is more blood and guts when on form) ... anyway, today he is linked in The Mirror to Swansea.
The excellent Brendan Rodgers who appears to want his side to play the sort of football most of us Villans would die for at Villa Park (????) is said to be considering a £5million move for the Welsh international. Controversial for Swansea fans as Collins used to play for their hated neighbours Cardiff!
Could we not simplify this and just bring Brendan Rodgers to Villa?
Oh and with reports that Carlos Cuellar ( Click Here ) will be off back to Spain this season, we could end up with a very different defence next season!
Would you look to keep all or any of these defenders or are they right to clear them out?
