Dean Smith speaks about Tammy Abraham’s England chances

Aston Villa manager Dean Smith has spoken about a possible recall for Tammy Abraham with the England national side after continuing his good run of form against Middlesbrough on the road. The Villains have been one of the in-form teams since the beginning of November and they continued the good run against Tony Pulis’ men over the weekend where they picked up a 3-0 win.

Following the game, Smith said that Abraham may only be plying his trade with the Under 21s at the moment but it may be long before he makes the jump into the senior squad with the current run of form, he told: “Tammy Abraham is playing for England U21s at the moment and is and around that. Whether he gets to go and play for the full team or gets a call up, who knows? All he can do is keep working hard and do what he is doing with us. “He has made people sit up and take note by scoring seven goals in four games.”

Dwight Yorke confirms interest in Aston Villa job

Former Aston Villa star Dwight Yorke has revealed that he is interested in becoming the next Villains boss after Steve Bruce was sacked from the position. Bruce had been the subject of criticism from a section of the supporters after helping the club to just one league win from the previous nine Championship matches and this eventually saw him being axed from his position.

Since then, a number of high-profile names including Thierry Henry and David Moyes have been associated with the role but speaking to Sky Sports, Yorke has admitted that he has submitted his resume for the vacancy, he said: “I’ve made the necessary move and I’ve sent in my CV and I’m actually trying to make contact with the chief executive of the football club. I’m doing everything on my side to make sure I’m given that opportunity to speak to them.It’s a job I’m 100% interested in, I’ve made it very clear I’d like to speak to the football club.Whether that happens or not I’m still waiting on a telephone call.”

Aston Villa fans are angry at the fact that exiled players Ross McCormack and Micah Richards are getting full payments despite not playing. It seems Steve Bruce is hoping their contract run out following comments after the win at Burton Albion on Saturday.

He said the only time some players can leave is when others want them. And a consideration in that is how much the players earn, according to their contract. He added that Aston Villa was “a big club and people have earned big money.” He said the club would be looking to keep players they want and let others move on. On those that want to move on but have huge salaries, then waiting for the contract to run out is the obvious choice.

Fans want Richards out

If there is one player that Aston Villa fans are disappointed in and want out is Micah Richards. Aston Villa is currently in a financial mess, and they will have to sell players before being able to sing new players.

Fans have stated in a poll that if there is a player that they want out of their team is Micah Richards. This is a surprising news for a player that was touted at a young age to become a world-class player.

Micah Richards


Counting from October 15 of 2016 until the time of writing this article, which is October 26 of 2017, that’s a time-lapse of over 1 year where the English defender has not made a single competitive appearance for his club Aston Villa.

The last time that Micah Richards represented Aston Villa in an actual match was against Wolverhampton back on October of 2016 and from there on out, Richards has had to settle with a place on the sidelines as an unused substitute player.

Micah Richards has done so much for Aston Villa.

His name is up there in the list of players that saw the club through its recent darkest days upon relegation from the top flight. The player skippered the club through its first relegation from the Premier League, after joining in 2015.

With the club now in the Championship, there are reports that he might move to Nottingham Forest. When Champions League winner Roberto di Matteo was tasked with the responsibility of helping the club back to the Premier League, he decided to freeze out the defender. Richards played just two games before Steve Bruce took over in October.

Ritchie De Laet became the first choice in the right back role while Alan Hutton and Leandro Bacuna ranked higher than Richards in the pecking order. He eventually got some game time when De Laet was sidelined on a long term basis, getting his first game against Wolves. Since then Bruce has been naming him in his substitutes’ list even though he rarely calls on him.

Manchester City have unveiled their latest addition Kyle Walker.

The top rated defender joins from Tottenham Hotspur is what might make him the most expensive defender in the world. The England international agreed a five year deal with the Etihad to become the third new face following earlier additions of Bernardo Silva and Ederson.

The deal is reported to be £45 million with add-ons taking it to £50 million. Some other reports claim the deal would cross the £50 million benchmark, eclipsing the deal for David Luiz when he moved from Chelsea to PSG for £50 million net in 2014. Walker is a top player who is expected to hit the targets of Premier League and Champions League to unlock the added funds in add-ons.

“I am thrilled to be signing for City and can’t wait to get started. Pep Guardiola is one of the most respected managers in the world and I feel he can help me take my game to a new level,” Walker said.

Micah Richards is suffering in Aston Villa and he needs a resurrection

Micah Richards is a player that used to perform in the Premier League at a consistent basis and at a high level as he was a performer of Manchester City a few years ago but the English defender has slowly been losing his influence and impact in the world of football.

The veteran defender spent 10 seasons performing with Manchester City before being released on June of 2015 where he consequently would join Aston Villa and his career would start to experience a decline.

Even with the arrival of Micah Richards, Aston Villa was relegated to the 2nd tier English football league, the English League Championship and in the 2016-17 season, Richards only made 2 appearances and now his future is up in the air.

The contract of Micah Richards in Aston Villa extends until 2019 but considering his lack of playing time and almost non-existential role in the English club, other clubs could take this opportunity to swoop in and sign a player who has experience competing in top competitions including the UEFA Champions League and the Premier League.
