Many fans have been openly discussing about the fact that Stephen Warnock should not be leaving Aston Villa anytime soon. We now have a proven premier league goalscorer in Darren Bent, and credit where it’s due to the guy, he’s proven his price tag right from his debut. I think next season will hinge on who goes, and who stays. Some of the names touted as leaving I’m quite happy with, such as Pires, Ireland, Bradley, Beye etc.
I hope that Nigel Reo-Coker and Stephen Warnock both stay, but only time will tell, and it’s looking particularly bad for Warnock at the moment, which is a shame, because defensively, he’s a solid fullback… just a shame some of his passing goes astray on occasion.
