There was a tweet put out there in Twitter land by Stan Collymore (which was apparently taken down later) saying: He’s coming home, he’s coming home, he’s coming… Who’s coming home? Gareth Barry? No chance! Ashley Young? I can’t see that one either. But I do vaguely remember some years ago a rumour going around that Young might be coming back to the Villa, and then all of a sudden, he pens a new deal with United! We need to watch that we’re not being used to somehow broker a better deal for himself.
How about Joleon Lescott? And before you start telling me he has never played for the Villa, I know! But apparently he’s a Villa supporter, so it could be seen like some sort of homecoming, couldn’t it? I would love to see Lescott in a Claret & Blue football jersey, but I would be astounded if he signed for the Villa. And can you imagine the fans of West Bromwich Albion, I know, it would be great! Me personally, I haven’t got a clue who is coming home if there is anyone coming home at all. So long it’s isn’t the last manager, I’m not bothered.
Just one little thing, I do hope that Sherwood gives Kozák a fair go this season and not shipped him out on loan just because some other centre forward might sign for the Villa. Libor scored two great goals the other evening against the Wolves and was one of our best players that night. I feel he could become a darling of the Villa faithful given a chance. Here’s Libor’s Best Bits Against Wolverhampton, check it out. UTV
