Interesting to read back at some of the comments about Richards when he was here and the same people brown nose-ing now.

Have to admit Iím warming to Micah.

He comes across as a very decent bloke.

Agreed, that appears to be what's going on. It was noticeable when he retired how many at Villa were wishing him well on social media.

He does seem a nice bloke, just a jester on the pitch.

Pity he was so poisonous with his mates gabby and lesscott when he was on our books.

Was he though, I wonder? Maybe he was just shit and unfit. Doesn't seem like a troublemaker at all.

He will go down a bottler with Lescott.

what did he actually bottle? He had an injury he couldn't recover from. Is that bottling? And we gave him a stupidly long and lucrative contract. Is that his fault too?

And not forgetting that we signed him to that contract despite the fact we couldn't get insurance for him. It's easier to blame the player though rather than the ones that gave him that contract.

He comes across well, I just find he's a bit over-exposed by his regular presence both on BBC and Sky.

Iíd rather not. I was uncomfortable with the poisonous hatred he got from some at the time , and still am.

I think a lot of it stems from that episode where he had a go back at the fans who were rightly having a pop at Guzan for pissing about spitting gum.

We can file that away with the rest of the ten years of purgatory since microphone head threw his toys out of the pram. We are finally in a far far better place as a club. Onwards and upwards. UTV.

On the one hand he was given a contract and sat it out bleeding the club dry but you couldnít blame him.  On the other hand he and his fellow so called professionals showed a total disregard for the club for their lack of professionalism towards Garde in particular.  The nadir being the FA cup game at Wycombe referred to above.
