Interesting quotes from Gabby today.
Despite getting a lot of stick for this I have been a long time supporter of his ever since he broke through in MON’s first season. Obviously the last two seasons it has been a nightmare for various reasons but he still retains my confidence he can pull it around.
So when he says
Agbonlahor added: “As long as I’m contracted to the club then I’ll continue to play for them – until I get told otherwise.
Of course the bit in bold is the most important thing. What Gabby says is excellent, I love it. However if the manager or owner wants him out then what can he do ?
He could stay and become a problem, he could sit around and mope or of course he could leave. I know many Villa fans on forums and the likes would like to see him sold and we all understand the Bent/Gabby situation is difficult.
However as we saw under MON there is great potential there, the next two managers nearly ruined him. Under Lambert I am convinced if he is played up front on the shoulder of the defender he can return to his old self.
Where that leaves Bent is another question !
