In my opinion Bannan, Clark and  Albrighton are showing him how to behave on and off the pitch they look hungry and look like they want to play for the club! I am a big Carew fan but I don't like the way he & Houllier are behaving towards each other, I don't think airing your views in public is the way to go.

Carew's days are over I think and its a shame it has to end this way. I was listening to Ron Toss yesterday on BRMB and he was saying he had it on good authority that carew stormed out before the Burnley game. I have also heard he was out late at lap dancing clubs again

John Carew got the strength and skills and power to be an awesome striker and legend but he doesn't have the toughness or hunger or Viking spirit. If he have Martin Laursen's heart he will be unstoppable.

Birch? A Villa legend? An average player who ran around a lot and tried really hard. And you have him up there with McGrath, Little and Gray. Crikey.



To be a legend you don't necessarily have to be the best player.

They need to have a meeting, in private, and even if they disagree they need to at least agree on not saying this stuff in the press.
I for one will be sad when Carew leaves. The word legend is over-used but he has played a big part in some very enjoyable times over the last few years. But we move on, we always do

I'm beginning to dislike this Houllier fellow.

Funny how we see things differently as I started disliking Carew quite a while ago and now want to see the back of him for good

Goodbye John. Yes you were good now and than but mostly you have been "stealing" money from us.

come on now Dave. The term "legend" gets thrown around far too easily, and needs to be reserved for our true greats. I loved Paul Birch for his effort and enthusiasm but he isn't one of our true greats by any stretch.

I think John is over estimating his popularity, his name gets sung a lot cos it's a good song.

We only need 1 of Heskey or Carew in the future but then with the injuries both have we could get rid of both of them

I'm with Gerard on this one. Methinks Carew's days are numbered.

I posted a couple of weeks ago that in the case of Carew it should be good riddance to bad rubbish and got called an idiot by a few.

The blokes attitude is a fucking disgrace and how on earth he has been elevated to a cult hero is beyond me.

Andy Gray - yes
Brain little - yes
paul mcgrath - yes
birchy - yes

Carew - my fucking arse

i agree birch is no villa legend, well liked and the fans loved his attitude!
As for John Carew, i thought on his day he could have been whatever he wanted to be, but i would also bracket him with Dalian Atkinson for potential!

Maybe not a legend

but Birch like ian taylor typifies for me what i expect out of a player - 100% comittment everytime they pull that shirt on and would run themselves into the ground doing so

Carew was a good player for us, but he's far too injury prone now. I'd say overall he has been successful and scored good goals for us.

I'm sorry I'm with Carew. He is a Villa legend and houllier should have abit of respect.

Carew has said nothing out of turn.

Of course not. He never did anything wrong when Mon fined him either. He was blameless at his previous clubs when wine and women took precedence over football too and they sacked him.
As to what he's done for Villa, I'd love to know what that is apart from cause trouble

Should have been got rid of ages ago but the turncoat couldn't do it

When should he have been got rid of then?
