I think at this level you have half a second more to get the ball out of your feet, the top strikers in the league are the likes of Glenn Murray and Chris Woods who aren't renowned for their pace and lightning closing down but you know you're in a physical battle. In the premier league you have the likes of Alexis Sanchez or Mane on your heels as soon as you touch that ball and that makes it harder to get confidence on the ball and less time to pick the right passes

Always like Clark so wont change my tune now. Think he has done a good job for Newcastle but in the Prem.will struggle as he finds it difficult to deal with pace. Baker is our best defender by a mile as for going off the boil well strange it as happened about the same time Bruce decided to play three centre halves. But yes I agree that Baker like Clark would struggle in the Prem. not that he we will have to worry about it any time soon.

I think Clark and Baker are both capable of playing in the PL with a better defender beside them.

Despite his shortcomings, still think Clarke is better than any of our current CB's. Yet another bollock dropped by the useless RDM.

Elphic was a bit of a strange signing. He seems like a good lad but his best days are behind him and they weren't exactly glorious.

I think Chester is in the same boat as Clark and Baker. They'd all look amazing beside Laursen.

RDM had nothing to do with it. Blame Reilly&Co for Clarke's release clause.

There were more than a few fans who couldn't wait to get rid.

Another player we remember fondly who was utter shite when he played for us.

Hit the nail on the head there. If and when we get rid of Gabby no doubt he'd be looked back on as if he was Messi.

A season on as well as a handful of premier league games for us and Clark is right up there with our best performers. More than a bargain on today's prices.

I'm delighted to hear that. I hope he has a very long and successful career.

Quality player - not as good as Cahill but a competent defender at top level.

Good luck to him and any of the other half descent players who haven't let the strain of being involved with us over the last few years demoralise there career.

Apart from saying that it won't be long before he spoons one into his own net.

Who gives a toss.

Can we close this thread.

No, nothing wrong with the thread

We produced these players, let them go, they go on to do well, we often replaced with expensive flops.

Hopefully VIlla are learning from this!
