Title: Matija Šarkić
Post by: cdbullyweefan on September 01, 2015, 02:34:25 PM
Eighteen year-old goalie signed from Anderlecht.

Bienvenue (or the Dutch equivalent if you come from the Northern bit).

EDIT: he's actually Montenegrin, which I think might be a Villa first.

I think Grealish should be his mentor for a few months that should age him quickly enough and give him a trendier hair style.

On AVFC's Facebook page, there is much of the usual negativity following a Villa signing, followed by a post asking for a bit more positivity and saying it's no wonder our players look so nervous if they read some of this stuff.

The lad himself seems to have 'liked' that comment!

It's just as well Villa are allowed to sign players I've never heard of. The only ones I remember are the really crap ones, like Francis Benali and Peter Beagrie. I'm not sure those two are even alive

Yeah Kozak posted something about it and everyone panicked for a while that it was another break for Kozak.  I hope Seigrist will get a chance when he's fit, I'm not convinced by Steer from what I've seen (I'll caveat this with the fact that he's still very young for a goalkeeper) so I think we should look at all the young keepers we have and see if any are able to step up.  Think this signing is definitely one for a few years down the line which is great to see, that's Sherwood sticking to what he knows.

Made his international debut last night and kept a clean sheet as Montenegro beat Belarus.

Currently on loan at Livingston.

As a special reward, I've treated him to some accents in my initial post.

Probably in the same way that we would've been very dissapointed if Tammy was recalled by Chelsea last January. I wouldn't take it as a dig at us, more that he's doing a good job there and the're dissapointed to lose him.

Exactly, he's doing well for them and they wanted to keep him. We do seem to try and see something that isn't there quite often.

Quote
Livingston FC regrets to announce that goalkeeper, Matija Sarkic, has been recalled by parent club, Aston Villa.

Matty returns to Villa Park as regular first-choice goalkeeper, Tom Heaton, sustained an injury which resulted in him being stretchered off in yesterday’s 2-1 win over Burnley.

This is incredibly disappointing news for all at Livingston FC given the level of performance we’ve seen from Matty this season. He had managed to keep 7 clean sheets in 18 appearances for the Lions so far this campaign, including a blank in our 2-0 win over Champions, Celtic.

We wish Matty all the very best in the future and it goes without saying that he’ll always be welcome at the Tony Macaroni Arena.
