Have I told the story about his parents static caravan on here? I can't recall if I have or not.

The boys bought Mom and Dad Gardner a static caravan that is pitched on the same road as mine at the Haven holidays site in Burnham on Sea. Apparently their representatives argued a hard bargain.

Anyhow, I wasn't aware of this until a Euros game last summer. I went to sling out some rubbish and looked through the open doors of one van on the way back. A couple of people looked familiar but I put it out of my mind.

It was only when I was told about our neighbours by the sales manager I put 2 and 2 together. The familiar chaps were Gary and Craig watching the game with their old man.

Anyhow, I ran into Daddy Gardner at the weekend. He reckons Gary is imminently due a pay rise and new contract.

And he has some new decking on order for next holiday season.

One or two good moments in three or four games isn't worthy of a new contract.

He still has a lot to prove. He's not exactly great at this leve at the moment, so why give him a stupid contract if we're planning on going up where the Premier League, on current evidence, is clearly behind his level.

I'm pleased for him to be doing ok. But it's no more than that. He'd be one of the first I'd want to replace with better quality

It'll be a shame if he can't improve sufficiently to hold down a first team spot, unfortunately I think too many injuries might have taken their toll already. I hope I'm wrong and that as a Villa supporting local lad he fulfills the talent he showed as a youth player.

I agree it would be great. Hopefully he will improve a lot

But I just don't think he has the quality to play midfield at the top level

Really hope I'm wrong

I would go along with that.  OK as a squad player at this level and we should be looking for better.

Why do we keep giving out contracts to players with no ability, Gabby, Westwood and now Gardner.
I was hoping under new owners this silly thing like this was finished with.
