Groan of the week


Aston Villa manager John Gregory took a swipe at his goalkeeper Mark Bosnich last week, for his refusal to sign a new contract with the club. "Mark can double his money if he goes on a free (under the Bosman ruling) to somewhere like Manchester United or Barcelona. Villa do not come into it for him because he just wants as much money as possible. Loyalty does not come into it when the stakes are so high," said an indignant Gregory.

(Em, that's the same Gregory who walked out on Wycombe Wanderers in February of this year, despite being contracted to stay with the club until the end of the season. "It is a great opportunity - I didn't need too long to think about it and I certainly didn't want this chance to pass me by. I had to take it, they are a massive club. Whatever happens in the next five years I would have regretted it if I hadn't gone," said Gregory at the time. Loyalty just doesn't come in to when the stakes are so high, does it)?
