How on earth will they treat him over there? He’s a “dirty viler”

There is really only one way - and that is to claim he always was a blues, just like his brother - can't see them ignoring him being a Villa fan

Congratulations Gary on achieving your lifetime ambition.
Daft move by the club and the individual, he'll never be welcome back at Villa after this.

I feel the same about this as I did when Ridgewell went there I.e. not even giving the remotest of shits.

Last year of his contract I think, therefore, not to be seen in Villa colours again.  Good luck Gary.

On another note, the beauty of this transfer is that we all know that it doesn't improve them.  And he can't play against us.

my son met the Gardners cousins out in ayia Napa a few years ago

they told him the whole family was bluenose but because they had come through the Villa academy they had mixed allegiances
bit like Lee Hendry I suppose I think he came from a nose family

Doubt he's a Blues fan, especially after his actions following his headed goal against. Never seen a Villa player run the full length of the pitch to celebrate with the fans.

That's a worse fate than being dumped into a bomb squad, poor bastard.

Poor lad must be gutted. Going back to when he was a kid he was always tipped as being something special. The injuries obviously never helped but to end up at that dump is an insult to his talent. God knows how he's coping with the idea of spending a season there. It's really sad to see but it's obviously better than having your career ended through a nasty injury. At least he's still playing football but it must feel like his dreams and his career have pretty much ended.

Scoring for his beloved Villa against the Rags at the Sty and the joy of running the length of the pitch to celebrate with the fans will comfort him. Plus, being local, he'll be able to pop over to see the lads when he gets the chance. Couldn't do that if you were playing for Barnsley or Rochdale.

I'm sure I have seen him Tweet something along the lines of "Villa 'Til I Die" or something similar.
