    Stephen Ireland

    Good crack from him in Saturday's Daily Mail and a good explanation from him as to why he p-ssed off from Maine Road. A guy who seems to impress every time you see him play, always wants the ball, ever inventive---and for me could be the best pay back signing of the season by any club.

    • It was a good article but despite his 9 years at Man City..............If a club came along desperate to sign him and chuck treasure chests of booty at him, I think he might have jumped ship!

      I suspect he is right though, about the feeling at the club changing and Villa seems more of a unit where you respect each other etc.............Good old Daily mail, love it.

      As a signing, I like Ireland. He's not cosmic class but he is a 100%er and that counts for much with me. He also has some vision for finding fellow players and can light up a game sometimes........................I suspect far more often than Downing!.........................I hope we see the best of Ireland at Villa.
