Villa must be mortified not to have Carney tied in properly after all the efforts to develop him. I hope he has gone to Chelsea to play games and not just for the money. At his age he needs regular 1st team football more than anything and the money will come later.
I know where you're coming from John but I had a feeling that it was inevitable following the takeover. Marina Granovskaia is a huge loss, I was hoping that she would stay on for at least a season to offer some stability during the transition and likewise Petr Čech.
Had a thought about it and couldn't decide. Think you can add Sterling, Koulibaly, Kovacic, Havertz and Silva to that list though.
One thing for sure though is that they'll be wearing the new away kit.
