The transfer window gently shuts on Villa and a series of missed chances.
I am angry as I write this. OK I expected little action but surely we could have afforded some decent young players with cheaper wages ? I know money on wages is tight but to see Marvin Sordell move from Watford to Bolton for just three million (when Bolton are in massive debt)just makes you wonder at the philosophy running this club.
In the summer many players on high wages will leave Aston Villa. This leaves a massive chance on the wage bill. If the money is really there for players, why not go for someone like Sordell now. The price for me is so cheap for a top quality prospect in British football. Unfortunately I do fear that 1) AM can not spot young players and 2) that frankly we have no cash available at all.
The future of the club is going to be based on quality younger players. We will not have the resources to do what happened under MON. To see prospects move for so little just gets a sigh and wonder what we are doing now. As I have said we have no real worry of relegation, the bottom 5 look pretty fixed to me. We could have taken gambles, looked around, wasn’t the scouting to have been improved ?
Where the hell is the proof of that ?
