James Collins Exit (?) Not Exactly A Hammer Blow!

James Collins Exit (?) Not Exactly A Hammer Blow!

The Daily Star say that West Ham are preparing to make a bid of around £3million for James Collins.

Superb, deal, sell.

Some will say that is harsh but the defense have let us down badly the last two seasons and after a solid start for Villa, Collins seemed to enjoy the off pitch part of life more than the on pitch stuff. He did re-gain some form towards the end of last season but that isn`t enough as far as I`m concerned, we need a new defense and a fresh start.

Oh, The Birmingham Mail have just popped up with a Mat Kendrick penned report on this as well. As the report says Collins has just 12 months left of his current deal.

Surely to sell him back for £3million to the Hammers (we paid in the region of £5m) wouldn`t be bad business, get him off our books and bring someone who is young and hungry and.... no, I`ll leave it there. Suffice to say the Club fines show the sort of character he is.

I think it's time to get rid, he makes too many errors for an experienced centre back. Let's hope that Dunne, Hutton, and Warnock follow him out of the door. Can we get a couple of Scandinavians in defence please Mr Lambert? It's wishful thinking, but a player in the mould of Simon Kjear would be ideal.

I'd keep him. Good player on his day and amazing in the air. Agreed that he hasn't had "his day" for too long but Lambert won't put up with any monkey business and some players need that discipline. I know people will say that you should play hard regardless etc. blah blah. But for those that have played the game, it's difficult to self motivate when the manager is so negative and you're left out of the loop which think everyone was with GH. MON had everyone believing that they're in it together and all for one and one for all etc. We can't express enough how much a good manager difference will make.

I actually rate him and would like him to stay but if it helps the wage bill then it seems like a good deal

I don't think he's got the defense intelligence required to be a great centre back. I'm sure Lambert will get an extra 50%-100% out of some of our players, but when it comes to centre backs, my opinion is you've either got it or you haven't. Don't get me wrong, physically he is a great centre back, it's just his noggin' I'm worried about.
