‘He’s got to go’ – Time for Aston Villa to axe controversial 31-year-old?



January is shaping into a huge month for Aston Villa and Steve Bruce, who is looking to become the man to guide the Villans back to the Premier League this season.

Arrivals are expected at Villa Park, but so are departures, as Bruce looks to find the right balance to his squad.

One player who has found himself coming in for criticism when he has been available is Gabby Agbonlahor, the club’s long-serving forward.

Is this month the time for Bruce to axe the 31-year-old for good?

We discuss…

George Dagless

It’s been time for ages.

The forward isn’t getting near Villa’s team any time soon and needs to find a new club.

I still think he’ll be there come the end of this window, though, and then not play some more. 

Sam Preston  

He’s got to go.

He hasn’t offered enough at Villa for years, despite being a senior pro with a deep connection to the club.

Steve Bruce has stated he needs to raise money and getting Agbonlahor’s wages off the wage bill would free up money for a loan deal in the January window at the very least.

He is no longer a viable option for Villa so there is no point having him around.

Luke Randall  

His time is up at Villa Park.

The striker has dropped off the pace, and is more suited at a lower level Championship team.

In a Villa side that have some dangerous attacking outlets, there’s no place for him.
