After games we win it probably is impossible to stop the players from speaking.
All week we hear from them about how they are going to get up for the challenge and how motivated they are. So what do I read from Mat Kendrick ?
@MatKendrick: Once again #avfc players stand up to be counted after a defeat. A grand total of ZERO players doing post match press interviews #shocking
Tim Abraham also backed this up and you can tell from their words how angry they are
Not even Barry Bannan persuaded to speak to the press for #AVFC today. Three players stopped after Wigan win. #feasttofamine
Of course the players are really speaking to the fans and after the spin why not hear what they think. It is not like this game today was like the one in December. There was signs of a fight and bottle within the side and I do not understand why one could not speak.
I have followed Mat and Tim for a while now and even during the dark days of Houllier you never saw the kind of angry and bitter words you see now. It is not like (apart from a few) anyone expected anything other than a defeat and they could simply say the truth that they were outplayed by the next probable champions.
Very bad PR and show from villa and not right to treat two loyal local journo’s like that.
