Bacuna could be on move to premier league Cardiff
Stated he could be used in at right back

Good luck against likes of Son and Sane !

Preparing for championship life next season then !?

His contract with Cardiff is for four and a half years.
It beggars belief.

I see that José Ángel Crespo won the Greek league and cup double this season with PAOK.

One of those players we've signed in the last 7 or 8 years who made absolutely zero impact whatsoever, and who are largely forgotten.

there's a shocking number of them.

Yes, I’d completely forgotten he was on our books. According to Wikipedia he only played one game for us.

I can't even remember if Crespo was rubbish or not, I genuinely can't remember having any opinion of him. He had a beard, didn't he?

I remember doing quizzes where you had to name all the eighties or nineties or noughties Villa players. Tended to get above 90% on each, you only forget the odd third choice goalkeeper or youth team centre half that was promoted to the first team for about two games during an injury crisis.

When someone makes the equivalent quiz for this decade I'll struggle to get 50%. Some absolute nobodies.

Except for the current squad, of course ❤️

If my memory serves me well, it was a home game against Stoke

Was looking through some old squads earlier this week and ex-Villa and Derby legend Simon Dawkins popped up. Where is he playing now? Had completely forgotten him.

Tshibola and Gardner due to come back?  Hasn't Gardner's contract run out?

This is 80 minutes long Barry Bannan talking about his career.  Obviously mostly Villa but I found it good, honest and pretty insightful. 

Been around for so long, you forget he's not even 30 yet.

Apparently Crewe fans are pissing themselves laughing that Jordan Bowery has been considered good enough to be given a contract at MK Dons.
