Words Fail Me As We Loan Spurs Reject

Words Fail Me As We Loan Spurs Reject

Well, we had January to find out Randy Lerner's intentions for Villa and now we have the answer it seems.

Others in the relegation fight have done business, we have brought in a player from the French second division and have now LOANED a player from Spurs. Simon Dawkins .

A 25 year old who hasn't featured for Spurs and was farmed out to the MLS (a very poor league) club Jose Earthquakes. To be fair he has scored 14 goals (in 53 games) but again, it is a very low quality league.

I have no clue as to what Lambert is thinking making these sort of signings either. Ridiculous formations, tacticss and rotation of players, end of an awful game he thinks we gave him a standing ovation (Paul, at the end of games, we stand up, we do that so we can leave) not to mention the worst goal difference in the league and he still stays.

Sorry, that was developing into a ramble, I'm just gutted. In three teams being worse than us we trust. This is a new low.

The worst part of this sorry affair is that the official twitter account for the club broke their official mission statement of silence at all times to try and drum up interest in this signing and develop some interest in it. Sorry but when faced with relegation I am pretty sure this is the most pathetuic reponse from a club that is trying to convince anyone they want to stay oin the league, clearly most in the upper echcelons, for s reason I cannot fathom, simply dont care, they aren't even hedging, its abysmal. I have never known anything lik this whit flag mentality we have adopted at Aston Villa They say no club is too big to go down but a club of our size should at least be breaking our backs to try. How the mighty have fallen entirely. The first time I have said this but I think Lerner needs to start looking for buyers at the end of the season. The only worry I have is that unlike Doug he wont care who he sells to. Worrying indeed. That said, maybe this Sylla guy is the missing gem we have needed since Boateng all them years ago. But he is only one man, we needed five.

I share your feelings on loans Fear, but I believe Dawkin's contract with Spurs runs out in June 2013 so although this is a 6 month loan we will have an option at the end to sign permanently if we wish. Perhaps someone else can confirm this?

Richard Dawkins would have been more useful. At least he could tell everyone not to bother praying, there's no point.

Can't you all see that we are re-enacting the 1966/67 blueprint to win the Champions League in 15 years time. You must all be blind! This Dawkins character sounds like the new Willie Anderson (who had to compete with George Best).

I love it that we are now in a league position where, on the table on the right-hand side of the page, our grey highlight means we can be seen distinctly from the teams immediately above and below, i.e. we are in an odd-numbered position. Is it just me? Oh, ok...I'll get me coat. no wonder my son has Apserger's....

Can only think that PL thinks we have enough in the ranks to string some results together and that the two additions are more 'diamonds' for the future. Unfortunately I think that the near future is going to include a spell in the Championship. However the league is that close that had we have wone our three homes games against Wigan, Southampton and Newcastle and held on against Swansea and Albion, we would now be challenging for the Champions League places. it is mad to think that those 5 winnable games can have made so much difference. Even had we have just held on against Swansea and Albion we would be 15th and looking up instead of down.

@ medzy.... agree about defenders, although he's knocking on a bit, would Upson have been so bad? International once upon a time, experience in spades, off to Brighton. Obviously Lambert is oblivious/ambivalent to our Premier League status - mantra of youth, youth, youth is all he can see.

We could finish bottom. Shame the owner doesn't give a toss. Randy Lerner and Paul Faulkner are an absolute disgrace to this club. Its a shame full relinquishing of a fine clubs dignity and stature. Not even the slightest effort from the owner. Its time this lot were run out of town.
