Peter Whittingham Coming Home To Villa?
I don`t usually deal in whispers but the news is very quiet and I thought this would at least make an interesting talking point!
Apparently now Cardiff City have bought Mutch, some Cardiff fans are putting 2+2 together and the whisper (one that I heard a while back to be fair) is that Peter Whittingham might be making a return to Aston Villa.
I stress, there isn`t a massive amount of substance on this, I`m not claiming a massive exclusive!!! Of course if it ends up right then I will call for the freedom of the city and want to be pulled around in a gold chariot (but to be fair, I want that anyway.. services to talking rubbish on the interweb... I`m surprised I`ve not been beheaded, ahem... I mean knighted yet. Maybe if I avoid my taxes? I feel this is a fair digression... what was the article about again?)
Whittingham was named Player of the Year at the Cardiff City Supporters' Trust annual awards ceremony in April.
He played 48 games scoring 12 league goals (and 7 cup goals)
The season before he got 11 (and 4) and the season before that was a stunner as he bagged 22 league goals (and 2 cup goals)
I remember being gutted when we sold him, I`d take him back I think! He`s developed well and we desperately need goals from midfield.
He was linked to West Ham and the bluebirds (are they the red birds now?) manager Malky Mackay said on Wales Online: 'I totally believe Peter Whittingham will be a Cardiff City player next season. He has only just signed a new contract and he has two years left on that, so I don`t expect him to be going anywhere."
Would the lure of Villa prize him away?
Would you want him?
Where did I leave my car keys?
All questions I can`t currently answer.
I`m told from (a made up) source that Peter`s favourite colour is lime and he`s always fancied glowing in the dark.
Coincidence? You decide.
