I don't care about Grealish or Tammy. We need to build as if we're going to be here for a while, not this smash and grab yoyo we were hoping to be. It's four years in, we need to start planning for the future. No Bolasie, no Grealish, no Tammy. We need a team of players built from the ground up. And the first thing is getting rid of players who are on big salaries and who are not playing well. We need a Championship wage structure, not a premier league wage structure in the hope we'll get promoted based on money alone. We need to invest in youth and get players in with a bit of heart.
The kind that aren't going to be laughing at Micah Richards' jokes, but instead looking at him with disdain because he has thrown away his career and is a disgrace - like they should have been looking at Gabby when he was here. And N'Zogbia. And McCormack. These players should be made feel ashamed about what kind of men they are, not glorified as having a dream life, which is how I imagine it is in that dressing room. I hate this Aston Villa team. I don't like any of the players. Davis and Hogan maybe I want to do well, and I'd like to see JDH and COH get a chance, but nothing can happen when the atmosphere in the dressing room and around the training ground is as it is. Some players need to be told to stay at home, and the manager needs to go to the press and explain why.
Promotion this season is out, and with this group of players I wouldn't want to be promoted. Imagine a relegation scrap with these guys. Pathetic
