Not good times for Villa, but hardly surprising either.
Given our league position and current manager to try and get any player with ambition is going to be very difficult. We were linked with Bas Dost who has a very good record in the Dutch League. When I posted the link it was a promising one as we should be going after these kind of players. However as reported today his agent has said
‘He turned down Aston Villa because he wants to play for a top club.
Well that is the truth isn’t it. Any decent player with ambition will want better than us and getting quality in with the current set up is going to be bloody difficult. I know some may mention Holman and I hope he is quality and this proves we can attract quality.
Of course the other thing is that this confirms we have been after a forward. Given who we have at the club at the moment with Weimann first choice then there is one conclusion we can make from this.
If we are after a forward then one of gabby or Bent is leaving, that is the logical and sad conclusion of this comment.
