Great hour of him on Talksport this lunchtime. Talks about Villa, his love for the fans, he's a supporter, the noise of the Holte End, how he felt he let the fans down in his performances and owed them something, the possibly struggles of holding onto Jack and John and staying up.

Top bloke.

He's a good lad, despite the Rangers misguidedness.

Some days he was very good, other days not so but every time I watched him he gave 100% every time and didn't go hiding.

Enjoy your retirement Alan and thanks for never giving up of putting the claret and blue shirt on again when left out of the squad.

One of our best players, no. One of our favourite players, YES, YES, YES.

Really pleased his career wasn't ruined by that absolute throbber Lambert.
Was never great even by his own admission.
Cult hero to some.
Always gave 100%.
Clearly loves Villa.

I love this fella. We can wax about whether he was a great footballer or not, and yes he had limitations, but how rare is it in the modern age for a footballer who wasn't even treated that well here by a number of managers to still come out the other side showing gratitude and love to the club and the fans? You rarely get it even from the players who owe a great deal to Aston Villa for where they are now / where they finished their careers.

Clearly a man with a lot of heart and a great attitude, and if we had more like him we'd be much more stable.

Anyway - thank you Alan. May you have a long and happy retirement. Hope we bump into each other around VP some time so I can thank you in person.

If every player we have now had his commitment we'd be well safe by now. Not the most gifted but has given us some memorable moments as already mentioned including that tackle on Shane Long.  He also pips Cahill with the best goal ever scored against Blues.

We'll have done well to see another player at Villa with an attitude like his. Best of luck with the retirement, big man - you went out on a high.

The way he talks about feeling he owed us after his career for the first few years which didnít work out really inspiring.

He said he doesnít want to get into coaching or management which is a shame as I think he has potential to be a good coach. Says he still lives in midlands as his lad currently plays for Coventry

Thanks for giving everything Alan, a great lesson to many less committed players we have had to put up with over the years. The anti-N'Zogbia.
