As Expected, Jordan Bowery Signs For Villa

As Expected, Jordan Bowery Signs For Villa

I only went out for an hour and of course, as soon as I went, Villa announced a signing! have confirmed the signing of 21-year-old striker Jordan Bowery from Chesterfield.

What does this say about our own young strikers then?

Apparently he`s signed for an initial £500 000 and has a three year deal.

Lambert says: 'Jordan's a good player. The hunger will be there for him and he could surprise a few people. He's a good lad, he's strong and powerful. He's played over 100 games in the Football League and Cup football, so he's battle-hardened. He's one for the future but if he steps up to the plate like I think he can then I would have no hesitation in throwing him in, none whatsoever.'

Last season he played 40 games and scored 12 goals.

I apologise for the pathetic photo!!!!!!!!

Mixed reactions in the forum.

BigFatRon just posted:

Delfouneso - Age 21, Played 68, Goals 10. (In the Prem/Cups)
Bowery - Age 21, Played 82, Goals 9. (In Div 2)

(Data based on current club, source: BBC Sport)

I know us Villa fans have got into the habit of being eternally grateful for any signing whatsoever, but on this one...WHY?????

PL MUST think that he will fit into the formation/one of the formations that he wants to play. Problem is if PL doesn't hang around and we've got a load of players that no-one else wants.

Bit like Liverpool who have very very unfortunately changed managers and now have a squad of players that the new manager wants to get rid and can't therefore is skint to buy new players like Dempsey, LOL

We its a big gamble, but he did OK at Norwich with a lot of unknowns. I'd rather take a chance on a 21 year old with promise, than Millions on someone like Owen etc. Its obvious that Villa can't attract the players we want. Build for the future and see what happens. Are we expecting to much too soon?
31/08/2012 13:45:00
Hopefully PL is able to build but these signings aren't for the here and now and it hurts seeing Villa in transition again and hoping for 10th at best (AT BEST)... Also, PL built Norwich going up league by league, different to starting the same process in the Prem where you don't get time or space ... you need experience as well as youth. The mix (transfer window is not closed yet so...) is all wrong at the moment. It wouldn't be if we could rely on Zoggy, Ireland, etc and for the ball to get to Bent and if we didn't have Gabby out, etc... we will see. Once the transfer window is closed, that will be that, I'll then support as always... at the moment I'm worried and totally underwhelmed.

I believe this lad offers what Delfonseau, Wiemann, Drennan and Burke don't...A BIG physical presence..It is what is lacking with the senior strikers as well..hence Benteke...Only my observation..might be wrong..but we seem to lack a really big guy up front (and in midfield actually..Steve N'Zonzi please
31/08/2012 13:48:00
If we can't attract Premier League players, then surely there is a market of European players which will be technically better than taking a chance on a 21 year old who will need more time than we have to get up to speed. I'm all for players who want to play for the club but we're desperately lacking experience to hold the kids together....nervous few hours ahead.
31/08/2012 13:49:00
i think we need to give the fella a chance... he's only just turned up!!! fek sake...
31/08/2012 13:57:00
ESPN saying we're back on with the Genk Striker, lets hope so because if Villa are relying on this guy to get us out of trouble then we're definately playing the scum next season.
31/08/2012 13:57:00
Mmmm wish the lad well, but why did we sell James Collins (the striker - hat trick against Stoke this week?)
31/08/2012 14:02:00
Let the man (Lambo) do his job while some of you go back to Championship manager. He gets paid to do this so will stand or fall on results, regardless of what the amateurs think of his signings. Support means just that. Welcome to the fold Jordan and good luck.
