Player Departures - 2019

Recommended Posts

Think De Laet would have been decent for us had he stayed fit, we then went on to sign 20 other right backs. Hopefully we can get a fee for Bree. 

Can't complain at the rest and wish them the best as they all played a part (bar Richards) in getting us back. 

Very refreshing to see us getting this all done quickly as well.

Was a nice video montage too....only about 10 seconds for Richards though surprise surprise!

So much salary freed up.

Imagine if we sold Hogan and McCormack, that’s some serious money we can invest wisely

Quite happy with that. Wouldn't have had an issue with Whelan getting another deal but.... not exactly sad he didn't.

Let's sign all the players!

Can't really argue with any of them.

Whelan is probably the only one who you MIGHT question, but I don't think he's got the legs for the Prem and would only have played a bit part at most anyway.

Best of luck to all of them. 

Agreed. We have lost some big (good) characters there so I think i would have a probably given Whelan another 12 months to be honest.

It's not as much as you think, as a few of the remaining players have received sizable wage increases due to promotion. Mccormack is reportedly 30k a week better off and I understand Lansbury and Grealish got a decent hike in salary. Probably a few others as well.

Rumours he might be off back to Stoke as player/coach

That's a hell of a lot of experience gone. Hope we bring in some new and not all younger types. 

Looks like we have a plan, which is nice for once.

Yes.

Hutton, Jedinak, Elphick and Whelan is a hell of a lot of experience gone.

I can't wait till we see the quality signings start to arrive?

Can't argue with any of those released, Jedinak and Whelan's experience and leadership will be a big loss behind the scenes, I thought maybe one of them might of been offered a  coaching position, but obviously depends on their circumstances. Good luck to all of them.

I like it. Ruthless and efficient. No time for sentiment where we are going.

Winning the play off final has allowed us to make a clean break with the past.

Eight players have gone at the end of their contracts. As much as we liked the characters of many of these now ex players, it would have been wrong to have kept any of them in the totally new set up that will now be put in place. Let the new younger Villa take centre stage!

Interesting.  I'm just trying to get my head around the amount of players and money we are going to need.  Good luck to them all.

A keeper. 3 RBs. A central defender. 2 holding midfielders and a defensive minded winger.

A nucleus is a Steve Bruce team right there.

Not enough right backs

With 8 gone I'm probably being greedy in hoping Bjarnasson, Lansbury, Tishbola, Hogan and RMC will soon follow. :wave:

Which i guess is why a couple of cheap options like Jota represent good business, we won't be bringing in 10 x £10m players.
