Almost An Entire Villa Defense To Be Sold?

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 )

forum

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).

 Warnock sitting in goal

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.

Collins on post

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?

Our defense has been bad but i think the midfield has to take some of the blame. Winning and keeping the ball has been desperate this season. Would like collins and cuellar to stay. I'd be hacked off if MON bought our defense for pennys and got them playing well. I bet sunderland get cuellar on a free

A manager that trains a team to concede 20 goals from set pieces, but that fails to score any needs to be sacked immediately. But it will all be irrelevant. we are going down. None of us have any idea how Villa will look next season. A relegation will see the back of N'Zogbia, Gabi, Bent, Dunne, Collins, Warnock, Given, Ireland and Cuellar. 2 years from challenging for the title with international class players to relegation and a team of kids. M'ON started the rot. Lerner hasn't known had to stop it and McMuppet has proven to be, as feared, the worst managerial appointment in our history. All of you with your head in the sand with simplistic statements of 'we need to get behind the club' take your head out of the sand, we are in desperate trouble. We need experience and goals and we have neither. Bent, Petrov, Dunne, N'Zogbia are long term casualties. We cant defend set pieces and our next home game is Stoke. The very least we need for that is a keeper prepared to come off his line. Step forward Brad Guzan.

Cuellar is off in the summer as is Guzan. Given will not hang around the lower divisions. Will everybody wake up. We are in desperate desperate trouble. Ooopss. Sorry. Attend the games, sing big Ecks claret and blue army and all will be well??????? Will somebody please do the right thing now and get rid of McMuppet immediately. He relegated Small Heath twice, destroyed Rangers and is now doing the same with our club. Please please somebody, anybody, wake up and smell the coffee. I have the feeling that the next 8 games will be the last any of us will see of the Premier League for many many years.

How about a 5 million bid for Brendan Rodgers ?

Agree 100%, voth! I can smell relegation, too. Randy Lerner should get hold of a copy of 'The Football Man' by Arthur Hopcraft. It's probably the best book ever written about football in this country. If it doesn't give him the insight into our national sport that he clearly needs nothing will.

cwandc. He is linked with Chelski and Spuds. So the reasons he would choose them over us are? And the £5m is coming from where? Will everybody remove heads from backsides and look at what is happening. Randy, we need a leader. You own the club. Despite your desire to take a back seat, there are times when a leader has to show leadership from the front, in front of all the troops (supporters). Now is that time. Randy, stand up and be counted. And do not stand up and show your disdain for supporters by confirming your faith in McMuppet, because that will be the leadership that consigns this club to the lower leagues for years.
