Do we really want to see him go to Westbrom or Newcastle?
I want him back at VP! It's exactly what we need in midfield right now.

He's made a balls of his career so he deserves to end up at some tinpot club like West Brom.

He always gave 100% for us and that's good enough for me if he did it again. All would be forgiven after a few good performances. Love him or hate him he would be once of the 1st players on everyone's team sheet.

I'm not sure what happened when he left. The whole thing looked like a fiasco from my armchair in Kuala Lumpur.

He's a decent player and probably an improvement on anyone we have at the moment but you'd have to question his motivation coming back here.

He's made all the money he'll ever need. What's left to play for?

I think we need to forget about these romantic notions of past players coming back like Delph, Young, Milner, Barry etc.

None of them are Villa fans so what do we have to offer them? Wherever they move next they are going to want as much money as possible because they want to look after their future after retirement, can't blame them really, it's a short limited career.

Delph would be better than any of our current midfielders , but to think he could come back to us is fanciful imho.

I can see him going to the toon and I'd rather go there over albion. I thought that Shelvey wouldn't be sticking around to step down to the Championship but he did, plus if he joined them he's pretty much guaranteed PL football next season with them going up.

As much as I did not like the way the Delph transfer went down I cant entirely blame him.
A chance to play in the CL and challenge for a place on the bench at Cup Finals would be too much attraction and at the time you cant blame him for going. The club was poorly managed both on and off the pitch.......... extra £40,000 a week......

However although we have picked up the pace a little in the Championshit we are a country mile away from getting Delph or anyone else on £50,000 a week.

I think we were offering Delph a big contract before he left. I'm sure we can better contract from either two clubs if Tony has the ambition he says he has.

What we were offering him would have been way short of the £90,000 a week he is on now and Lerner was looking to take as much capital out of the club as possible before fucking off.

Never thought he was that good. He went to Man City to sink or swim. He sank.

However the reaction to him going was harsh as it was a mess not totally of his own making.

Long story and history now, not sure I can be bothered to go fully into it!

He said that it was his club, he owed a debt to it and to Randy and that he didn't think it was right for him to walk out on a free. I said at the time (and got called a conspiracy theorist :3:) that he never said he'd not leave.

The video on the big screens I've heard mixed things, I don't think Villa would have done it if the board had communicated that negotiations were still ongoing but I was also told that Delph never approved it and was embarrassed by it.

Not so much a fault of anyone, just clumsiness.

What he did was not leave for more money for himself on a free and made our club money on his transfer whilst sorting out his future forever.

Not that bad a thing in the big scheme of things is it?!

As said, I was always a bit doubtful as to how good he was anyway though!

I always liked Delph and still do. Decent hardworking lad who was tempted by enough cash to make him look stupid. He fucked up bigtime and ruined his otherwise good relationship with the crowd. I'd happily have him back, him and Jedinak would get us playoffs imo. He matured a lot towards the end of his career here.

Hits the nail on the head.
