Collymore at leicester...good move for all 3parts.....lets hope it stays like that (not).
He will eventually crack. But Villa need Carbone more.
With Carbone and Dublin upfront, Merson behind (Hendrie backup for Merson), and if Merson is getting off form, Carbone can also move back into his position, and then we have Luc Nilis, Vassell and Walker...Maybe some new kid also......Therefor no room for Stan the Man
Wishlist this season...Joachim OUT OF VILLA PARK, send him back to Leicester and pair him with Collymore.
Completely agree with what you say ESR...it makes me laugh to see people come and criticise Villa for selling Collymore, I'm sure that they are the same people who told Villa to get rid of him a few months ago!
This Collymore thing is a difficult situation to understand.
Although Stan is a great player and (supposedly) a Villa Fan, he could never come and play for the Villa again because of the effect that he has on the other players. Players like Southgate have refused to have him playing in the Villa team...that is why he had to go!
He can never return to Villa...but I wish him luck at Leicester!
Hi , I'm Lazio fans , I just wanna to say my opinion .
Collymore still good , you should try get him back .
Even he has weird attitude but he will prove that he is still one of the greatest striker in England now .
Gareth Southgate means so more to the club than Stan Collymore ever could!!!
It;s like Lazio selling Inzaghi because he didn't fit in and Nesta and others not wanting him to play! There is no way we as Lazio fans would say sell Nesta and bring Simeone back!
Gareth is our leader and a great defender...Stan never performed for us!
It's funny though that when Aston Villa sells a striker that striker becomes one of the best players in the league, like: Milosevic, he played crap for Villa but when Villa sold him to Zaragosa,now he is one of the best strikers in Spain!!!
The same thing for Collymore, he plays crap for Villa but for Leciester the best...I just don't get it...
Ok, so Collymore has one great game for Leicester and suddenly he is a great striker! He came backed and scored hat-tricks for Villa but nothing came of it...Judge this revival of Collymore when he has played more games!
As for Savo, he was not crap for Villa. He did not play his best but then also Spain is a different type of league! He also has matured as a person and player! He was also overshadowed by Dwight Yorke..who played fantastic football for Villa!
Is he still any good?
Yes you got so many injuries, but wingers are one thing you do have (Ashley Young, Downing and Albrighton). Now I know some of them can play in the centre but I just hope this won't mean that Albrighton will play less. He's been your man of the season to be honest...
Martin O'Neill has resigned as Aston Villa manager with immediate effect.
Kevin MacDonald has been appointed caretaker boss while no reason has been given for O'Neill's decision to leave after four years in the job.
MacDonald will prepare the side for their Premier League opener against West...
Buying delph sidwell and reo-coker as potential barry successors was a good thing.
But O'Neill has out done that by making a midfield that was solid to the point of being static and uncreative become a lot more fluid, dynamic and unpredictable now - and almost overnight - with Milner in the...
