Just sent this to my mate, from the Mirror

Quote
Marney training with Villa

Dean Marney is training with Aston Villa this week after leaving Burnley, writes James Nursey.
The experienced midfielder,34, was released by the Clarets this summer after an eight year spell.
The former Tottenham trainee and Hull ace has made 96 Premier League appearances.
Marney was Burnley ‘s second longest-serving player behind Kevin Long but struggled to regain his place after a cruciate knee injury in
January 2017.
Now Championship clubs including Nottingham Forest have expressed an interest in him.
Bruce is first to have a close look but will have to be patient as Villa’s cash crisis means they cannot afford to sign anyone.
But Bruce is hoping the expected sale of Jack Grealish to Spurs, and potentially James Chester to Stoke , plus other exits , will release funds for some budget incomings
And his reply was “Villa are Back”

:)


34 ? here is a 4 year deal for you  sir   ???

Did SB sign him for Hull?

Central midfield is by far our strongest area currently so don't see the point in us signing him.

Exactly, any signings at this point need to be centre halves or pace out wide but we know Bruce likes centre midfield and right backs

more importantly that would be 3 34 year olds as the core of our midfield, how short sighted is that?

Lessons just aren't being learnt are they?

We will only learn lessons with a new manager and owner it seems.

Are we trying to attain the oldest team ever to play in the championship?

Let's hope he's just training with us.

Yes, let’s hope so, because signing a 34 year old player who was never that good is pointless. We’d be much better off using one of our young players.

The only thing to make this any worse would be if Dean Marney was played at right back?
Sounds awful. A poor man's Jay Spearing !

This is worrying if it’s something we’re looking at.
Play a younger youth lad in there for gods sake.
