I am glad to see finally we have at last put a bid for Joe Bennett.
He was first linked by Richard Wiltford of Radio WM a good few weeks ago. It is believed an injury is the only reason it stalled and the expense of Aaron Cresswell proved too much. I do not know a lot about him but reading on Boro forums you can clearly see he is highly rated by them.
So now finally a bid for him has broken and a unsaid secret is finally out. Of course this is another young English player and it seems we are having a mixture of young English and foreign players, this balance is correct. Lets not be like forum with no English players, I would hate that !
However I do understand the concern as I posted last night about the inexperience of the team. Look at a possible starting back 4 (indeed look tonight)
Lowton, Baker, Vlaar, Bennett
Not even 30 Premier League starts between them. I have no idea if Lambert is forced to do this or wants to do this but we will have the youngest squad in Villa’s history I would think.
Exciting or worrying ?
