BBC Sport - Football - Robert Pires set to complete move to Aston Villa

I know we have half a team injured but is this the future for Villa? Where has the ambition gone?

Jordan Henderson especially is worth keeping an eye on but he's still a young lad so it's early days.
From 20/7/2010. I really did not expect to see this come true this soon but I think it's great. He's been absolutely stellar for us and the U21s.

So Henderson, Gibbs and Carrol? He really is giving opportunities tonight, isnt he? I'm glad to see it.

EDIT: Starting line-up v France:

Foster

Jagielka, Ferdinand, Lescott, Gibbs

Walcott, Henderson, Gerrard, Barry, Milner

Carroll.

With the young team that played against United and showed some promise, Pires could prove to be a very good buy.
His experience will be invaluable to those young players still learning.

It's good to see on paper, but judging by that first half it's a disaster.
Having said that, I don't see any reason why he shouldn't stick to the majority of this team over the next few years and onto the World Cup.
They can only get better as a team the more chances they get.
I'd rather see that than the same old tired faces of over rated and over paid nearly men going through the motions, as was the case with the last lot.

Well yeah, he had to start making changes and tonight is as good a place as any I think. Carroll and Henderson are well worth an opportunity. I'm not too sure about Gibbs. To be honest I'm watching this and yeah, I would love for us to win and would hate to see France destroy us in the second half. However, I'm really just happy to see him give a few young lads a chance. The result is secondary, I feel.

Without actually playing well I thought we had enough chances to win this game.
You're right about the result being secondary too.
It won't do the young players any harm.

Seriously though. Fuckin' shite!!!
Fabio fast asleep, O'Shea not worth a shit, Evans also, Bebe bobbins, Fletcher awol.
Only Anderson, Hernandez and Giggs looked interested.
Well done to a solid looking West Ham.
