Our Aston Villa fans here in the Transfer Tavern can’t wait for this season to be over now and they’re far from impressed by The Birmingham Mail’s latest report.
It’s been a tough old season for the Villans consisting of serious ups and downs and it now looks like the best they can hope for under Steve Bruce is a mid-table finish.
They’ll probably take that given the issues they’ve had at times this season but our local Villa punters cannot fathom why Chris Samba has been taken on trial by the club.
The club are short in the centre-half area, of course, but it’s still up for debate as to why Steve Bruce has offered the former Blackburn Rovers player a potential chance with the club.
He hasn’t really shown his quality for a number of years now and our landlord thinks it would be a huge risk to bring him in permanently.
Of course, a trial means Bruce can assess whether Samba is good enough but our landlord remains unsure that such a deal would be beneficial.
Thoughts, Aston Villa fans? Let us know below!
