Gabby Agbonlahor Again Linked To Sunderland

Gabby Agbonlahor Again Linked To Sunderland

A slightly quicker transfer link today.

www.mirror.co.uk again link Gabby Agbonlahor outwards.

They say that Sunderland are interested in the 25-year-old striker. They call him 'former England ace` ... has he retired from England or is he not bothered or is he just not good enough at the moment to be in the running?

Gabby tackling

They say Martin O`Neill will bid for Gabby at around £6million.

Surely not? £10m maybe?

Gabby went on a 22 game without a goal run last season and his record over the last two seasons, albeit slightly wider than he would have linked in position, has been poor. Forum thread: Click here

Gabby action

As we discussed in Ag-gone-lahor? Would You Let Gabby Go? his record at Villa is:

2005/06 he played 9 times, (6 as a sub) 1 premiership goal.
2006/07 he played 38 games, 9 premiership goals, 2 Cup goals
2007/08 he played 37 games, 11 premiership goals
2008/09 he played 36 games, 12 premiership goals, plus one goal in Europe
2009/10 he played 36 games, 13 premiership goals, 1 FA Cup goal, 2 league cup goals.
2010/11 he played 25 games, 3 premiership goals, 1 league cup, 1 in Europe
2011/12 he played 33 games, 5 premiership goals, 1 FA Cup goal

So... our latest poll asks, would you sell Gabby for the right money?

£6Million the cheaky tit, is he having a laff? If there is one manager we MUST not sell on the cheap to anybody its MoN after he spent our money and cocked up our wages by putting players on 50/60k a week and not playing them so we could not sell them on to other clubs as they could not afford there wages thats why Sidwell Beye etc sat on there backsides getting splinters of the bench at Villa until there contracts run out costing us Millions, yueah right would MoN also like Given or maybe Clark for a million?? No to the sulker unless he pays at least £12million then i would think about it otherwise he can pee off! UTV!

6mill? thats expensive.. gabby is utter garbage to be honest. and people think we should keep him because he is loyal? 99% of our fans are loyal.. do i want them playing upfront? no. id take 6mill anyway he can't score for toffee - just runs and runs... just because someone has pace doesn't mean they can play football

Sell, any forward that gets confused about what the outcome should be when presented with a one on one with the keeper, should be sold

I'd sell him and try and bleed the money out of Sunderland after all MON doesn't mind has it's not his money as he displayed with us and spent over the odds on most players.

Agree, 6-8m would be nice. He needs a change and we need another striker.

I think we should keep Gabby. At the start of last season he was playing the best football of his career imo...then injury plus McLeish tactics caused a loss of form/confidence and he was awful the latter part of the season..New manager..attacking football..another chance for Gabby UNLESS silly money offered £12m +

Whoever thinks 6m is not great buisness for Agbonlahor is deluded. I'd snap Sunderlands hands off, don't care who is bidding for him O'Neil, Mcleish, Holloway whoever, i'd take 5m for him...Can't keep a player in a squad just purely because he is a Villa lad, he hasn't been good for a long time, he has speed and that is it, literally nothing else to his game at all so good riddance.

I think lambert will want to assess his ability first... if Gabby doesn do the business this season he will be off...

The only abilities Gabby has is speed and getting women pregnant.
