Exodus! Oh, yea-ea-ea-ea-ea-ea-eah!
Exodus! All right!
Move! Move! Move! Move! Move! Move!
What are you on about Fear I (don`t) hear you all cry? Well, according to www.guardian.co.uk there could be a summer exodus of players out of Villa as the new manager clears out the unwanted, the unwilling and the downright whingey… if whingey is even a word.
The report, by Stuart James says that up to nine players could go, naming:
Stephen Warnock who is apparently unwilling to move closer to Villa and still lives up in Blackburn. Unwilling to move closer to the place of work? HA!
Steve Sidwell, well that won`t be a summer one will it, that will be in January or at least loaned out in Jan for a summer exit. Good riddance, he never looks in the slightest bit interested. He`ll get another fat pay cheque so I`m quite sure at least he`ll be happy and won`t be sparing a thought for the millions Villa wasted on him.
Curtis Davies who Martin O`Neill bought from WBA for over £10million and who, as you know, is currently on loan at Leicester City. Must admit, for the amount of loss we`ll make him I`d give him another go, on the other hand, those ‘pub player` appearances do worry! Apparently Villa only want around £2.5million for him now. Ouch.
John Carew whose contract is up in the summer. Another nice pay day for the man who SO should have been our Didier Drogba. If only he cared as much as we do he`d have been awesome!
Brad Friedel which makes sense as he is 40 next year and his contract won`t be renewed at the end of the season according to this report.
Nigel Hokey-Cokey apparently is at an ‘impasse` with his contract talks so might well leave on a free in the summer.
Habib Beye, silly signing in the first place really with our former manager rarely using his own signing.
Well, that is seven names, the report does say up to nine, so time will tell who else!
Any of those you`d like to keep?
And for no reason other than I like it and it is Christmas…
