Bentley to Villa!

Bentley to Villa!

Okay then rumours are that Aston Villa have asked Liverpool to pull out of the chase to sign David Bentley if Gareth Barry finalises his move to Liverpool.

Well this has outraged me and can also make David Bentley a laughing stock......

Think about it... David Bentley has said he will have to leave to play champions league football. Well I'm sure that Gareth Barry has also said that he needs to leave to further his career and play champions league football... dum dum dummmm.

Well I'm sorry David but if you did complete your move to Villa, what happens next season if Villa do not make Europe, same if Bentley went to city.

My personal view is that David will leave the club and Rovers will receive a good financial package.

I read in the paper that Spurs had offered £7 million, Aaron Lennon and Hossam Ghaly, I would personally snap the Spurs board hand of!!

Good article kendog. Bents WILL become a laughing stock if he doesn't now sign for a club in the Champions League, and if he does go to a club that isn't then any respect that I have left for him (and although I can understand what he wants I am losing this more and more!!!) will be gone. REMEMBER THIS MR BENTLEY, THE GRASS ISN'T ALWAYS GREENER!!!

If we really are offered £15 million, although we don't want to be a selling club we should let him go. NO one player is bigger than any club, he has made it clear he doesn't want to stay so maybe its time he went?!?!

Really don't believe the reports saying Villa have asked Liverpool not to bid for Bentley, this just couldn't happen in reality, for one thing no acceptable bid has come in for Barry so how would our board possibly be able to contact their board to negotiate a term? Just paper talk imho. We might have bid for him, it might have been declined but we can't have told Liverpool not to bid, makes no sense!

I thought he wanted to better himself not move to a club on the same level!

O'Neill wants Benitez's blood, there is no way in the world that he would try to bargain with the spaniard and I can't imagine that he could or would even try to dictate to anyone (let alone the most hated man in B6 at present) who he can and can't bid for.

its an open market, ignore the villa/pool bentley story. You sell who you want too simple as that.

I have only heard that from Liverpool fans and Liverpool sites I think they made that up as a way to tell their fans that they will not get Bentley and Barry, but to pin the blame on someone else rather then admit they dont have the money for Barry let alone Barry and Bentley. I dont believe Villa said that for a second as we are not Liverpool and dont try to discrase ourselfs by doing things like that.

I really dont think that Villa would dream of asking another team to not chase a player. MON only wants and has only signed players that WANT to join Villa. No disrespect Merlin, Villa are slightly above your league. i have no preconseptions that we are up with the top 4 or even on par with Everton due to our lack of defense. Despite all this we finished 6th last season includeing a real bad run at one point. we have an outside chance of europe this season Via the Intertoto. and if we sign players for defense and even more up front that the great forward team we had last season then i see no reason why we cannot be on the heels of liverpool / everton this year or even better everton. im not stupid enough to think were amazing as we are not. but i do honestly believe that every player in football last season has seen the awesome improvement of villa, and if some of them players who have agreat ability picture themselves in the villa squad with some of the class we already have.... I DONT THINK THERE IS 1 PERSON THAT WOULD SAY WE WILL STILL NOT GET MUCH BETTER THIS YEAR. Barry to me is not all that great. NRC was more of a captain towards the team than him this year. so the fact he is leaving will not put people off of coming. it doesnt help attracting players with the fact that MON has hardly done anything in the last 2 years transfers. but i believe it would be a good move for Bentley. and if you are honest yourself i dont think you would doubt that we will get better with good signings. just as you will get better if you do. Good luck next season, UTV

i'd be just as happy with Milner for £9M. That said Bentley is a very good player. After his comments i can't see how he can stay with you next season. Villa are on the up and i think it would be a good move for him. Liverpool don't have the money and I can't see Manure or Chelski making a bid. Arsenal is obviously out of the question. There's somewhat of an English revolution going on at Villa and Bentley will recognise what Martin O'Neill has done for other players in the last few years. If he joins us I think he'll make the right midfiled slot in the England team his own very quickly.

There's no way this is true.
