Well I don’t like this one bit!

Short termism gone mad maybe.

Aston Villa have announced that 26 -year-old Nathan Baker has been sold to one of our Championship rivals.

The official site say the defender has joined City on a four year deal.

Another of our youth academy blocked by the purchase of older players. Now fine, John Terry is a good short term shout and should bring leadership to the team and set a good example. But who better to set an example to than a fellow central defender 10 years his junior?

The reaction on twitter (see the embed as above) and amongst those I follow reflects how I feel. He was great for us last season I thought.

Bearing in mind Tommy Elphick* (inferior to Baker) is being linked with moves away as well, if JT and the injury prone Samba get injured, then what?

Hmmm. Well, I hope Bruce knows what he is doing, of all the players I’d love to see gone, Baker was not one of them.

Good luck Nathan.
