Sylla No Thriller Loaned Out From The Villa

Sylla No Thriller Loaned Out From The Villa

Aston Villa have confirmed that midfielder Yacouba Sylla is yet another of Lamberts signings who has been moved on.

This particular one is again a season long loan, he's going to Turkey to join Kayseri Erciyesspor as long as he can get international clearance.

Villa bought Sylla in January 2013 for around £2m.

The manager said at the time, 'Yacouba will add a bit of steel into the midfield which will help the other lads in there.'

There were links and talk of it Stephen, but now it's happened, or is happening if he gets clearance.

The interesting thing about a number of Lambert's signings isn't that they arrived here as crap players or that they had no potential, it's that they went backwards or didn't progress. At times I was really impressed with Sylla, Lowton, Luna and Helenius. You could argue they've not progressed not necessarily due to lack of quality, but the lack of quality at managing them. I'd like to see all 4 of afore mentioned players given a run under a manager who knows how to play football as Lambert has demonstrated no matter who he players, he can't achieve this.

Ah ok, I was wondering why it was only being reported everywhere today. Could someone tell me why we're loaning all these players out and not selling any? Surely we could sell Sylla, Luna and Helenius on the cheap, raise around £3m and buy one actual useful player?

I would guess no permanent offers for them, they've not really shone have they? Bit of a mess really isn't it mate?!

I know 444, but I'd rather have one half decent squad player for that, at least that would be some benefit to us, sending these players out on loan is just like sweeping them under the carpet and trying to forget about them. But as Fear said anyway, doubt anyone is interested in any of them on a permanent deal

oh yeah, this is Lambert's fault all over again if a reserve left-back from Sevilla and a U21 from French Ligue 2 don't cut the mustard in the PL and we don't sell them for crazy money... that's probably his fault too if Vlaar missed his pen for Holland during the WC. I'm bored of the Villa moaners club, you are proving O'Leary's point, and it's hard to take.
06/08/2014 16:28:00
We are being blessed with £10m according to the press 444, are us lot never satisfied!???!

All looks factual as above delirium, just stated he's gone on loan, he's a Lambert signing, that is the 3rd (?) on loan, a few sold already. Not sure it says fault, just says fact. And no, DOL wasn't right. Fans don't moan when their club and / or managers act as they should. They do when the manager or club make a total balls up of it. It isn't fickle, it's football. We aren't alone, blimey, there were teams way above us last season with fans moaning at not doing better.
