Good riddance. Two out of (by my calculations) twelve minimum who need to be gone imo. Guzan, Bennett, Richards, Okore, Lescott, Bacuna, Veretout, Gil, Agbonlahor, Kozak being the others that need to go imo. Would like to keep Traore and Amavi, but think they'll be off unfortunately.

What's gone so wrong for Agbonlahor?

I haven't followed the PL too closely the last few seasons but surely he will be a real asset in this league next year or has he shown no appetite to dig in during the rough period? Or maybe just turned to shit?

Got fat when McLeish came in, never got back to fitness or anything, and remained shite.

Beeped him and flashed him the bird, then he sped off like a twat

What a legend !!!

http://www.skysports.com/football/n...ith-aston-villas-first-team-during-pre-season

Stiliyan Petrov will train with Aston Villa's first team during pre-season, the club has announced.

The midfielder, 36, was forced to retire from the game after being diagnosed with acute leukaemia four years ago and undergoing three spells of chemotherapy.

But he remained close to Villa during his recovery and trained with the U21 side at the end of last season, saying in April he was hoping to return to professional football.


"I've told Aston Villa that I'm ready to start a pre-season with them," he said. "Obviously they will always have the first look.

"I've been working close to the idea for a year and a half and I've managed to come a long way. I started gradually with slow runs then I moved to five-a-side and then 11-a-side and half a pitch, then Sunday League."


And a statement from Villa on Thursday read: "Aston Villa is pleased to confirm Stiliyan Petrov will take part in pre-season training at first-team level.

"Manager Roberto Di Matteo has revealed the former club captain will travel with the group to Austria as he joins the squad at their training camp."

Petrov, who joined Villa in 2006 from Celtic, made 219 appearances for the club, scoring 12 times.

Di Matteo (or more likely Steve Clark) laying down the law already:

All I can take from it is that Kevin Bond will be a rich man very soon.

I love how that Villa poster gives an example of how the doubling of a number works, like a Primary School.

Also nice to see that Kevin Bond is progressing his career from 'bibs and cones man' to 'bibs and cones and money collector man'

So Marseille have virtually completed the signing of Sanchez and now they want Veretout.

Signing Villa rejects. A new low!:lol:

Can take and keep the pair of 'em! It does seem to say something about the quality of the French league (other than PSG) though...

So apparently Petrov won't be offered a new contract as her is not part of Di Mateos plans going forward.
Absolutely gutted for him :sad:

You want to get rid of the Jordans then?

No, didn't think so.

Decent players, but both will most likely be playing in the 2nd tier next season... Though Amavi should be nowhere near the 2nd tier.

J Ayew is alright but I don't rate him particularly highly. Always preferred André who seemed more solid at Marseille.
