In From The Cold

In From The Cold

Former bomb squad members Darren Bent and Alan Hutton are to be welcomed back to the Villa first team by Paul Lambert. Randy Lerner, who continues to streamline Villa for sale, clawing back on his £300m Villa adventure, wants Lambert to utilise all the playing resources at his disposal, rather than ship in expensive new recruits. This is a U-turn from a policy which saw Bent and Hutton bombed out owing to their 'high' wages, with Hutton on the untenable figure of 40K a week. With no takers for either player it seems as though they will now see out the final year of their contracts with Villa.

This comes a day after an unwanted Marc Albrighton walked away from his boyhood club and news surfaced that a contract ban is now in place. With Fabian Delph, Ronald Vlaar and Gabriel Agbonlahor all in the final year of their deals and with no contract extensions on the table that sound we are all starting to hear is certainly that of the Villa bank vault being hermetically sealed. Another day then and another worrying development at B6.

You heard it here first (or second, if you read the Telegraph).

If correct, this can only of come from Lerner. I wonder if Lamberk is going to come out with something to 'save face'?

Are we just gonna run everyones contracts down and let them all leave for free? This is a joke surely?

Can you really see them giving 100% after the way they've been treated? It's turning into a joke now.

If a transfer ban is in place, then it's good news, cause it means we will be sold this summer. Otherwise I can not possibly think of another reason.

"Can you really see them giving 100% after the way they've been treated" I don't remember any of them giving 100% during their time with us anyway!! But you are right they will be played week in and out a the expense of others who would give 100% who w then be *****ed off.

So if bent is to be the short term replacement for Benteke and Kozak then surely we need to play with wingers to get the best out of him as lambert quite rightly seems to believe he doesn't fit in our present style/formation. But lo and behold we've just released our best winger and the one play we have who can get the best out of bent. I hope nzogbia is given a chance once fit though, at least he has a bit of quality.

I just hope the fans now realise just how bad lambert,lerner, and faulkner are. I hope he lambert culls the ten players he Bought and never plays. The storm is truly upon Avfc, the wrath These idiots deserve is up on them now. Only anew owner, Manager can abait the storm
