The Ex-Villa Player thread - Keeping tabs on old Villans

♫ John Carew, Carew

He's slower than me and you ♪

I remember some Villa fans tweeting him to come back and play for us. He said he was months from fitness.

Oh yeah, wait a minute, he plays for Leeds, doesn't he? Still, an understandable reaction. ;)

Thought jimmy Milner played well against us last night... Turned the fullbacks inside out... Did he clap any of the fans?

On a side note as not an ex players, but related to the above question... Thought hart handled the chants well last night and even clapped the holte at the end

still find it bad Barry gets more booing than Milner

Id guess its cus Barry used the press to force a move, remember his outburst during the world cup that he felt Mon wasn't intrested in barry because he was doing punditry for the beeb.

but he still gave the club a good season after that. Milner was just as bad at World Cup when refusing to give information on his future and frankly jumped at 1st chance to leave

Former West Ham and Bolton midfielder Nigel Reo-Coker will join the
Vancouver Whitecaps on a four-year deal ahead of the new MLS season on
March 2.


 
Nigel Reo-Coker's leadership qualities have been championed


Reo-Coker, 28, was a free agent after leaving Bolton in the summer and
signed a short-term deal with Ipswich in October. However, he has now
decided to take the next step in his career in the MLS and, after
initially being linked with the Portland Timbers, he has opted to move
to Vancouver.


“I am very excited and looking forward to this great new challenge in Vancouver,” he told Prost Amerika.
“The MLS is a growing league and growing in stature every year, which
makes it even more exciting. I still know the best is yet to come from
me as a player.


“I’m 28 and know there is more to come. I would love to contribute to
this growing league and love to help Vancouver win the title.”


The midfielder, who was the captain of West Ham, Bolton and Aston
Villa during his time in the Premier League and also made his name at
England Under-21 level, will not be handed the status of ‘designated
player’ but thinks he can make a difference at the club.


“It wasn’t an easy decision to make: I had lots of opportunities to
stay in England and I also had the chance to go to Russia,” Reo-Coker
told Sky Sports News. “I felt that this was something I wanted to
experience and that I was making the right decision.


“It is an amazing city. I spoke to quite a few friends who played in
the MLS and I spoke to the manager, Martin [Rennie]. Funnily enough he
used to manage one of my closest friends in the league below, so it has
worked out and everything seemed to fall into place.”

Nigel moved in over here. Might have to go check out a Whitecaps game if it wasn't for the bloody ferry fares...
