Aston Villa Agent Payments 2012
While the below table again provides evidence to Manchester City’s strategy of buying the League Championship, it shows Villa’s recent restraint in the big-money player transfer market, despite the figure surpassing the amounts made by Villa to agents in the past two seasons.
The club’s agent spend is in the bottom half of the table (11th). Questions of ambition maybe raised, but at the same time it could be considered a more astute policy of not wasting cash as in previous years. I’m sure there were a few agents laughing about their cuts from inflated-price sales such as Stephen Warnock and Alan Hutton’s.

I thought Stoke City would be higher up as they tend to buy the type of players you’d expect shady agents would be pushing at them… I mean half of their signings are very unlikely.
Interesting to see where QPR are. I didn’t think they’d bought anyone expensive.
AsifSimjee Maybe the agent percentage on the players they’ve brought has been 80% or something!
Damn it, mid-table mediocrity again!!!
But with a budget twicw that of west brom’s it shows that spending money does not always get you any further forward, it is spending it wisely that is important
