This was a ridiculous series of decisions by Delph. I guess what matters to him is that he ends up where he wants, but this could have been done so much less painfully.

Shows the importance of players keeping quiet until they are sure in their minds.

I remember reading somewhere it's because he was initially told they wouldn't sell Benteke and now they are. Either way it's still crazy six days ago he was saying how he's going to stay. Should have just kept his mouth shut and people wouldn't have blamed him for moving on. Now I see people posting videos of them burning his jersey.

I feel bad for Aston Villa actually but it is their own doing. They are getting rid of two of their best players. I remember when Martin O'Neill left because they were selling off their best players, he had the team fighting for a top four finish, they were very competitive and had he stayed and they kept their players I could see them being a consistant top four team. Such a shame.

Yeah I felt the same way. If he had kept quite it would not have felt so awkward. I guess he knew what he was doing, its a business negotiation at the end of the day, he "put his foot down" basically saying, give me what I expect (deserve) or I will not leave. It seems to have worked.
