  • Aston Villa defender Olof Mellberg paid more than
wow! Any 3 of them would certainly of filled the void left by Benteke.

Why not come out with this sooner? Fair play to the man!

How was he unable to resign? Was he an indentured apprentice?

If I'd had any involvement with Villa, apart from being a fan, over the last five years I'd be keeping my head down and my fuckin' mouth shut.

So, from the end of the second season to when he finally left, he was working under duress?
He really didn't want to be here but couldn't escape?

But, he still signed a new contract a year later?

I know he is trying to cover his arse, but I can still smell bullshit.

Not only would they not let him resign, they also forced him to sign a new four-year contract. Whatever Paul.

He does talk a good game of revisionism, no doubt next he'll be telling us "I warned the major western powers about the dangers of allowing ISIS gaining a foothold." Or, "I told my wife that if she didn't put out, I was going to have to fuck the barmaid." (allegedly).

I can understand him wanting to rehabilitate his standing in the game after his years with us, but surely he'd be better off doing that by concentrating a bit more on his new job, because I doubt he's endearing himself to the Blackburn fans when he keeps droning on about us.

What we have here is start of the unseemly sight of all those responsible for the decline leading to the impending relegation abdicating any share of the blame and pointing the finger elsewhere. Expect more to come.  Sure, Lerner is ultimately the chief culprit, but Lambert is being very selective here.  If he had any integrity he would have packed his bags after the 15-0 Christmas or the Bradford semi.

It's getting a bit embarrassing isn't it? He was undoubtedly working under a certain degree of duress, financially, but that had nothing to do with his complete lack of tactical nous or coaching ability, or his inability to keep a structured back-room staff in place.

Sadly, we live in a bullshit world. People nowadays seem to think it's good to lie through their back teeth and, everyone else is to blame except them. Case in point: Tim Sherwood on last Sunday's MOTD2 - "At least when I was in charge at Villa, the players always fought and gave everything" or, words to that affect - really?? - he must have been watching a different team to me this season then!!

The Wilfried Bony one is true, he was strongly linked with us when Benteke was sent to leave the first time round, before Swansea ended up getting him.

Aubemayang was already at Dortmund in 2014 I think.

Lukaku I find hard to believe.

Don't forget he went on loan to the Albion.
