Hendrie loan contract chaos

Hendrie loan contract chaos

I don't really want to have a pop at the Potters at this important point in the season. But I do start to wonder if this club really has the organisation to be in the Premiership when I hear that even the manager doesn't know if his most influential on-loan player will be at the club in four days time...

Many people will be aware of the recent back office redundancies and reorganisations that are taking place at the Britannia with the aim of making the club more 'customer focused'. This has led to to the departure of several people including the club secretary and a reallocation of their tasks to the remaining staff. Whilst I applaud the club for trying to get closer to the fans, I do hope that Tony Pulis was only joking when he said that he did not have a clue if the Boxing Day defeat was Hendrie's last for the Potters or whether he will be available for Saturday's home clash with Leeds.

'There is a bit of a conflict in the office about it', he said after the match.

Surely you would think somebody was left who could read a contract?

Think the Villa need him back now and the majority of fans will accept his return. He went to you to gain fitness and form, he's done that and so I won't be surprised to see him back wearing his true colours, claret and blue.
