So apparently spurs are going to make an offer of Dawson and holtby+cash for vlaar!

I'm thinking this would be a good move for us! UTV

(9)
(3)

Too many rumours on here! seems like everybody is writing what they want and not what is actually true.
Does anyone really think the club is going to be sold? Heard about the 1st Aug on about 40 different occasions, and it's getting very boring now.
Why not just wait and see what really happens! Who do you honestly think wants to buy a club in this sort of turmoil? I have been a fan of AV for 27 years and never seen things so bad.
If anything does happen with the sale PL need to be the first to go, that's for sure! WORST AV manager I can remember by a long long way.
Sorry but no good for this club!
Thoughts welcome!

(6)
(6)

Very good move if it happens, let's get it rolling

(4)
(2)

I'd take it, also levy would send a couple loans to, so interesting rumour definitely the best deal we could get if vlaar went

(3)
(5)

Um mate you missed out Alex mccleash now there is the worst manager this club has had EVER!!! Lambert has done a damn good job with what he had at his disposal

(7)
(5)

To the above post.
"Well it is a rumours site mate"
If we all waited to see what happens it would be pointless having a Rumours and Banter site.
All of this seculation make for good reading and at times it makes you laugh.
We have had worse managers than PL mate, look back a bit and see.

Lambo has not been that bad, a few bad buys but o'neil made worst buys and wasted a lot of money on crap signings and still getting them off the books, that's what put us in such bad shape

hightower

(3)
(4)

You forgot Graham Turner and Billy McNeil! Worse managers than PL.

(2)
(3)

Dr Joseph Venglos
I need say no more

(3)
(3)

We could argue all night about whether he is "thee" worst but let's face it, he's up there

Mendax

(1)
(1)

I would say O'neil must be up there with the worst. Had £80mil to spend, a lot of money at the time and squandered it by selling off the cream of our youth policy and buying replacements no better than the kids at inflated prices and with inflated wages that drained Villa for years

(2)
(1)

If you have supported villa for 27 years and think PL us the worst manager, you have a very very very short memory. Venglos, Gregory, O'Leary, McLeish etc etc. PL has done a decent job given the resources he has been given, and the comparative spending power of other teams (west brom gave spent £10m on one player for crying out loud). Also if anyone thinks Spurs are going to give us holtby, Dawson AND cash for Vlaar, who has only 12 months on his contract, you must living on another planet

(1)
(1)

If Holtby an Dawson in a swap for Vlaar is true let's get this deal done quick!

There isn't much in Dawson an Vlaar's ability, both as good as each other, both can make mistakes, both can have dominating performances on their best days, but Holtby is quality!

We'd be robbing them blind, hope this rumour is true.

It was a mere tabloid rumour and it said or and not and. Honestly expect some pathetic offers to come in to force our hand and them maybe 5m leaving us with senderos, baker, Clarke and okore as centre backs, I for one am very worried about next season.

(1)
(1)

I read it was spurs loaning us them not us having them permanent.

(0)
(0)

If you care to look back, this season is the lowest points tally AV have had since 1970, and you some of you persons are sitting here typing things like Martin O'neill was a worse manager than PL. Get a Grip!
I understand you want to try and remain positive, as do I, but look at the reality. I appreciate it is a rumour site, but it takes an individual with a very boring life to sit and make thing up just for the sake of it. You will see who they are with the negative responses to this post. Show yourselves losers!

Apparently watchers of YouTube dallas tv saw Randy Lerner alongside Larry Ellison's representative at the game last night.

Further investigations have revealed that it's Randy Lerner first appearance at an villa game in 18months, the main reason is a sales exercise which would allow potential buyers to take a firsthand look at the squad whilst avoiding the European press hysteria.

Feedback so far. Club Structure -Brilliant, League Potential- Uncertain, Squad Potential - Average, Initial investment Required by new owner- £30 -40mill, Management - Replaceable {Klinsman}, Pre sale investment promised by RL- £15-20mill, Loan players spoken about =Deeny, Atsu, Campbell, Omar, Zaha

(7)
(11)

Its micky arison and his wife, I think things are happening and an announcement is coming. months back many people said 1st august, getting close

(7)
(3)

I hate to be negative but that sounds like a made up fantasy, Klinsman would never manage Villa and the possible loans are players who have had minimal linkage in the past weeks

(4)
(6)

I think clutching at straws people, as much as I'd like to be true they were probably just friends of randy's nothing else

(3)
(3)

Arison is in Italy on vacation, sorry guys your way wide of the mark

(3)
(2)

Business people, especially at Larry Ellison level, are never on holiday as we "ordinary" people view them. It would be right and proper his top representative would take his place at the match anyway, that's his job. What is interesting is Learner was there with him which, hopefully, means he still has some good will to Villa

(2)
(0)

What is any of that based on? Complete rubbish. Btw, any multiple billionaire who buys a middle to low ranking PL side has no interest in the quality of the current playing staff. If the purchaser is even remotely serious they would all be gone within 12 months anyway

(1)
(0)

There are pictures of a guy shaking hands with Lerner outside the stadium, an them pictures do look like Micky Arison, an anyone who has seen Arison will know he's got a distinctive appearance, certainly looks like him to me.

I did watch the Villa Dallas game but I don't remember the camera pointed at where Lerner was sitting during the game

I have heard we are looking at Evian midfielder Daniel Wass.
He is a Danish international and signed from Benfica in 2012, following a loan spell.
He has two years left on his current deal at Evian and is believed to be keen on a Premier League move to enhance his international career.
Apparently Evian are resigned to losing Wass and offers of around £3million might be enough.
It stated he was a fullback but has since reverted to midfield and scored 9 in 38!

I have read this report to, not to keen to be fair, was hoping for ki, but he is waiting for a better offer, that will prop not come, ah well his loss, good news to here the mighty Delph wants to stay, and fair play to lambert for sticking to his guns regarding vlaar, I do hate manager declaring interest in players, that's what Benitez did with Barry, it just unsettles them.

(6)
(0)

Have now seen that spurs are in for vlaar, however this is by far the more interesting as reports suggest they are willing to offer holtby, Dawson, cash and possibly a loan signing to, not sure how true as it's from the mirror, but it's a good offer if true

(8)
(4)

If that deal is true and goes through, it could be the best thing to happen to us this seasson.

(7)
(2)

Have to agree here if this deal does happen, as much as I'd be gutted to see vlaar go, Holtby and Dawson would be worth it,

Arsenal striker Joel campbell has been shortlisted for a possible season long loan deal along with Chelsea starlet atsu

Finch

(11)
(7)

100% need some width with quality to beat a player.

Any ideas when Benteke is back?

(3)
(3)

Both of those signings would be excellent if we could get them but unfortunately I just can't see it happening in either case. Too many other sides would be interested in taking them both on loan, several of them seen as more attractive than we are currently, though I hate to admit it.
Clarrie blue

Loan players are sent to clubs that they feel would benefit the club and the player.

Arsenal and Chelsea obviously want their players to be playing week in week out. Sending players to Belguim and Greece will not get the players ready for the EPL.

People need to be aware that players get sent to clubs that play similar to their parent club. Before people jump on this I'm not saying Villa player the same as Arsenal and Chelsea.

I ask, why wouldn't we get players like that on loan?

Too much negativity going on here. It might be time to start getting the violins out. It is what it is.

(8)
(5)

To be fair I think we could possibly get one of them because I think we could give them more games then other teams, and they would be one of our main players whipping the crosses in

I would rather have grealish and carruthers play then get some other from another club to give experience too,
i also believe they have better potential then albrighton, so why get in others to stun there growth! we needed experience and we have that with the bomb squad re introduced and also cole sendros richardson, I think our squad is not to far away from being completed.

Anthony knockaert for leicester city will show what a quality player he is in the prem this season, would be just the kind of player villa need as he can play in hole and on either wing.

Wondering if any rumours on Tonev. Not in squad for the tour of America.

villaborn59

(7)
(1)

Going to be off loaded due to crapness

(14)
(4)

Tonev was going to be on the flight under one condition. Due to cuts in spending randy asked Tonev to earn his flight by finding at least ten match balls that he shot out of villa park last season whilst attempting long shots from 40 years.

(18)
(2)

While I am no great fan of either Tonev or Luna, not two of our more inspired signings, I do think that the way the club appears to be treating them both shows that the stubborn Lambert never learns anything. He is doing the same with these two as he previously did with the 'bomb squad' and he has ended up eating humble pie there. No player deserves to be treated the way he treats them. I'll bet no one treated him like that in his playing days.
Clarrie blue.

Totally agree, any other business HR and the unions would have done something about it. Respect is a two way street.

I genuinely think that intellectually speaking, Mr Lambert is a bit thick

strange one I was told today by a friend of mine with villa connections was shola ameobi on a free transfer. don't know how true it is but there.

mike12345

(19)

Bent, benteke, kozak, wieman, gabby, robinson. Why would we need a striker worse then all of them?

(14)
(5)

With all due respect, although I would be the first to agree that Ameobi is no Pele he IS considerably more talented than some of the players on that list of yours.

Lambert said to be looking at Mohamed Salah on a loan if possible, apparently there is some truth in the Ashly Young rumour too, second choice loan if Salah isn't available??

(8)
(16)

Salah will probably be going back to egypt for national service, so doubt it very much

(10)
(5)

Salah might be going back 2 his country if he gets called up 2 the military!!

(6)
(5)

Mohammed Salah would be o. k. but still don't think Young coming back is a good idea. He left under a cloud and there are too many supporters who can't stand the sight of him.
Clarrie.

(6)
(10)

Looks as though Salah is likely to be called back to Egypt to complete his national service according to todays news reports, so our chances of signing him on loan have just receded several degrees.
Bring on the next implausible rumour someone - where are you when we really need you, Kingvilla?
Clarrie.

(2)
(9)

Well, I did ask for the latest implausible rumour and on another posting site for Villa I've just seen someone say that Southampton are to offer 2 million for Vlaar. It gets worse, it really does.
Some of these people want their bumps feeling.
Clarrie.

(2)
(2)

Lets be honest, every club with any sense will be looking at Vlaar. PL or whoever should stick a value on him that reflects his performance at the W/Cup. Some players are moving for amazing sums so what is Vlaar worth? To us £20/30m as without him we are in the sh--. So do we let him go if an offer comes in somewhere near these figures or will PL sweet talk him as he did Benteke last year at a similar time.
With Okores and Vlaar together at the back and possibly Splenderous as a back 3 we would have a strong defence. Many of the best at W/Cup played a solid 3 and if PL went this way the lack of quality full backs would be a bit negated especially as Hutton now seems to be willing to pull his finger out if reports are true.

Oldvillan

(7)
(4)

What worries me most is that a club like Southampton thinks that they have got a chance of signing our best players. Shows where our standing in football has sunk too!!

(10)
(1)

I agree here, yeah he he's 1 year left on his contract, but his World Cup performance elevated his stock 25m I'd say, especially as luis had a howling tournament and went for 50m. Hutton made a real difference the other night as well

(2)
(2)

There is no way anyone would pay more than £8-10 million max for vlaar with only a year left on his contract. And that's being generous. I personally think his World Cup performances have been way hyped up - the Argentina game aside (where he was truly excellent) I didn't think he particularly stood out. in the group stages especially he gave the ball away cheaply and didn't look very assured. Anyone thinking we can get £20 million for him are living on another planet. I think he is important to us however, and by all means let's slap a hefty price tag on him to scare people off. But if anyone is serious about cashing in on him at this point, then we will only be looking at a relatively small fee. He's not that young anymore also remember. I've said elsewhere that he'd be a reliable, cheapish option for other teams right now. He's not going to generate a massive transfer fee.

The group stages where against Spain Vlaar took Diego Costa out of the game.

villacon

(5)
(4)

Salah is not having to carry out national service and mourinho has plans for him this season.

Vlaar to Southampton has been picked up by various media sources as well as the local Southampton papers. Louven deal to go through by Friday

(1)
(2)

Costa was nowhere near match fit. Did nothing in any of the games he played and didn't need taking out of the game. Any half decent defender wouldve kept him quiet.

Lovespud

(3)
(1)

Why is it, that every year we worry about losing players with just one year left on their contracts? this happens too often, players like delphy 's contacts are a priority that could be avoided by signing players on reasonable timespans

The Ki deal is dead in the water apparently, sources say Lambert pulled the plug when Ki wanted to see what other offers are on the table, Lambert has a reputation of not putting up with non-fully committed players, good news is money is available for the right players, hearing alternatives are lined up in Vullnet Basha and Valon Berisha

(4)
(5)

Pardon my ignorance but who the heck are those two?
I can't be bothered at the moment to look them up on the computer.
Clarrie.

(2)
(1)

It's o. k. I've looked them up now - two totally unknown midfielders, one Albanian and one Norwegian with no sort of pedigree to speak of.
If we do have any funds to spend should the money not be spent on someone with a bit of experience- or at least someone we have heard of?
Clarrie.

There both injured we need good players now.

Newcastle are interested in signing benteke and villa would listen to offers for him. I hope this isn't true.

(5)
(17)

Not true, this was a rumour in a Newcastle paper, no truth in it at all

(5)
(8)

Yes, there is truth in this rumour. Newcastle made an enquiry about Benteke but have been rebuffed.

(9)
(7)

Not a hope in hell
More delusions of grandeur from Geordie media no doubt

Mendax

(7)
(8)

Would anyone be tempted to take £20m for Benteke right now?
Rather than potentially waiting until Jan for him to be back playing.

Think I'd take £20m for Benteke now an use that money on 2 quality buys eg Holtby Caulker.

Whether or not we could find some sucker to pay £20m for an injured player could be tricky.

>Scg87

(4)
(9)

Have I blinked today and missed a couple of signings?
Sky Sport have just put up a list of Premier League clubs and how many new signings they have made in this window so far and against Villa's name is the figure 5.
I am aware of Senderos, Cole and Richardson but who are the other two?
Also, if Ki is stalling on signing in case bigger so called clubs may come in for him tell him to p*ss off.

Carrie, it was two academy players de Southampton! Not first team but developmental squad boys, good players but not primer league quality just yet.
AzZa

It's the 2 youth players from Southampton, I thought the same thing, so Googled villa signings to find out

(2)
(1)

20 million for Benteke?
In a market where an unproven 18 year old defender goes for nearly 30 mill?
And you think it would be a good deal for us?
Seriously?

Benteke rumoured to be interested in move to liverpool with a fee around the region of £15m-£20m, as brendan rogers doesn't want to go through with the origi move as he is the same player as benteke an with villas latest situation he sees it as an easy buy RL to cash in on his prized assets to get some money back he's invested into the club
kingvilla

(2)
(1)

Origi is on his way to Boston for medical with Liverpool, before rejoining lille on years loan, sorry kingvilla wrong again

(3)
(1)

Mendax,
No club wanted to pay £25m for benteke when he was fully fit and playing great football (12months ago) so would they pay £30m-£40m, which i'm guessing is your thinking, I don't think so.

I do think £20m for Benteke would be best for us right now, providing we can sign 2 quality players with that money.

Benteke out until jan? No guarantee he'll perform when he does come back, or 2 quality buys now who can make a massive difference between now an January, like I said, I'd be very tempted to take it an move on.

>Scg87

Benteke is light trainings USA with squad, expect him back sooner than Jan, more end Sept to early October, also origi is to have Liverpool medical, and me loaned back to lille

Villa fans the time as come! We are going to be taken over in the forth coming day's! I have been told this by a very important person in the football industry

(9)
(17)

Hopefully mate

(8)
(7)

Where did you hear this from at the villa

(4)
(5)

Not possible. Villa going to the USA today.

(7)
(10)

Um how does villa going to USA stop a takeover please tell me

(6)
(3)

Maybe coincides with the us tour in texas.
Lerner, the buyers are all based in the US!

(3)
(3)

What difference does Villa going to America today stop a potential sale?

Think what your writing!

(6)
(1)

There is no one ready to buy the club. Even if there is a prospective buyer, due diligence will take months to complete.

Lerner is not expecting any purchase to be complete before the start of next season, which is why he is exercising more control than previously.

(4)
(4)

Lerner is exercising more control because Paul faulker is no longer here and there's only a finance officer who is temporary!

(3)
(2)

You say it will take months but the club has been up for sale for abit now. Lerner has never once said there is no interest in fact he said quite the opposite his words if I remember where talks have been productive and ongoing. So what does that tell you? I personally am quite optimistic that there is method to all the madness and we will see positive outcomes pretty soon. Dannybronx

(3)
(2)

There a constant talks with potential buyers, that a progressing well, but that's as far as lerners let on, and he had the step up as faulkner had told him he was leaving before he did

(1)
(1)

Incorrect.

There have been prospective buyers but no one has progressed beyond discussions.

No one has initiated due diligence. So even if someone starts this process now, it will take months.

Lerner is expecting to remain in charge until next summer.

Even if someone steps forward, starts the process, Lerner does not want to cause disruption by selling in the midle of next season.

So: there is no buyer, no one has started due diligence and villa will remain Lerners for the next 12 months.

(3)
(4)

Keep telling your self that bud, there are and still are talks going on with Lerner and buyers, he doesn't need to run this by you or anyone this is his club, and only his, but it's not like when Ellis sold the club and had to announce it, we are private now, for all we know takeover could happen tomorrow next week or next year

(4)
(1)

Well you seem to be in the know. How do you know all of this information? And even if we aren't taken over. Provided our players stay fit I can't see us having a problem next season. We was without key players last season okore, vlaar for a stint, nzogbia, benteke, Kozak who might I add I thought was playing pretty well before he got injured. Gabby was out for abit too.

(4)
(1)

Now that I agree, we do have a strong team when fit

(3)
(2)

Strong team yes t they're ray fit and gabby is looking like he's little left to offer

Still no sign of a takeover

There's no sign of a takeover as we are a private company, so you don't need to know if a takeover is close or not, it will be done when it's done!!!

Unless, of course, one knows. dime bar.
To repeat: no sign of an imminent takeover

Didn't know you knew all that's going on at villa, as pretty sure only one who does is Lerner, no one else, he doesn't need to say anything we are not a public company anymore

Apparently Aston Villa's RK wants to bring Niang from AC Millan on a 1 year loan deal promising his parent club more game time for the player, Zaha & Smalling to be purchased in a cut price deal maybe involving Vlaar going the other way {hope not our star Concrete Vlaar missed a pen but still a star}.

No idea whether this is true/likely. My concern would be, if it is true why is Keane choosing the players? (Unless I am misinterpreting what "RK" means?)

Andy

Keane isn't picking the potential new buys, he simply adds an opinion or recommends a player as any assistant manager does.

Roma interested in vlaar.5 mil!

(8)
(14)

Vlaar is defiantly worth more than £5 million. At least £10million. And for Hutton if we get some money for him I will be happy. Hutton is a shocking player.

Cjr

(7)
(10)

Vlaar would be worth more than 5mil. if he had more than 12 months left on his contract. As it is, clubs know they could perhaps get him on the cheap side now while he's still yet to sign an extension. He's going to be viewed as a very reliable and more importantly, cheap option for many clubs now his profile has been heightened in the World Cup.

Lovespud

Vlaar's going nowhere club captain and unbelievably loyal.

(10)
(6)

I hope you are right

(8)
(2)

Is that why he left feyenord for a bigger challenge. Players that seem loyal aren't always if a bigger challenge comes his way like a chance to play champions league with a top team like Roma or Man U we will be introuble

(6)
(2)

I have to concur witht the above. If Roma come calling with the offere of Champions Leagure football and to play in one of the worlds most decorated cities then it would defo be a head turner. Plus Manchester United are Manchester United and sell themselves.

While I would be gutted to see him go (more so because what we would be left with) I would not hold a grudge if he left to play at a better standard and finish his career with the chance of trophies and european football

Likely to go to west ham or spurs I think. have heard they're both after him and with bigger wages on offer and the draw of London we'll probably lose out.

West ham don't have more money than Villa, Learner just decided not to spend what he's got and made from last year! Till where sold this will be the case

(10)
(5)

Doubt this is happening as it looks Like Ki will become our 4th signing. can't see us getting both. Would love to see Cambiasso in a Villa shirt though

(6)
(2)

Looks like 1 in 1 out with Luna on his way, ki will be a very welcome signing creative and can hold the ball well, just what we needs

(7)
(2)

Ki seung yeung almost a done deal.

(4)
(5)

Once again we lose one of our unwanted players on a season long loan which now makes two players on loan that we were trying to get money in for to spend on new players. I find it all totally mystifying but then what do I know - I'm not Paul Lambert.
Add this to the nonsense with Hutton and Albion and heaven knows what is going on.
Clarrie blue.

Even if we did sell them we would get pittance for them so at least its wages freed up

Distant Villain

(6)
(3)

Is it just me or has there been a systematic ignorance of the quality and age of player be linked here or brought in? albeit a club in a sale transitional period or not.

The only way Lerner can prove his statement that he returned in the interim to focus on Villa, is to invest in Young Quality players that will improve the team, without costing a fortune to preserve his asset pre-sale which the whispers are that the sale is closer that we think.

Before some of you slate my suggestion of of young quality, rem we have experience in abundance, if you doubt me look at our current squad including Cole/Richardson/Senderos to name a few. and one of these Joe is actually not bad but also not 22.

It's terribly sad that Lerner abandoned his faith in the young way forward thinking of Lambert, the idea was right the execution wrong which was totally based on the standard of players purchased, Lambert got all but 2 BigBen/Bacuna wrong.


In any other club he would have been sacked, however there is a bit of gratitude as he could have walked during this summer of disarray.

Now he has to get more importantly the quality spot on, every player that comes in now has to be better than the player in that position by a mile even if they are loans,

Defour/Kiyatoke/Atsu/Diaby/Abdularaham/Wellbeck/Zaha/Joe Cambell.

The options are endless even in our dire financial position, but the question is has "Last Legs" Lambert learnt his lesson and gets in quality additions loans or buys.

Outs-Hutton/Luna/Sylla/Luna/Bent/Gabby/Given/Karim/Herd/Nzogbia

(3)
(9)

I think that Cambiasso would be our best signing so far, if his wage demands aren't too high for Villa, as he was earning at least £130k per week when he was at Inter.

If Lambert fails to sign Cambiasso, then I think that he should try to sign either Defour or Parker.

Both Cambiasso and Defour are natural defensive midfielders. Parker is a natural central midfielder, but can play well as a defensive midfielder.

All three are very hard working players, and I would be glad of signing anyone of them. Any thoughts, lads?

(4)
(3)

Defour again? this rubbish keeps getting posted, get real, its not going to happen and never was

warvillian

We've got quality young players coming through the youth system! Look at Grealish, Gardner, Robinson, Burke, Carruthers, Johnson, Donacien etc. Players like these won us the next gen series. We need some experienced players to come In around them and let them learn from them.

Apparently Lambert is close to signing an experienced CDM, should be announced by Monday. Who could is be? Scott Parker after already raiding Fulham for Richardson. Parker was by far Fulhams most important player last season. Rodwell has limited experience but also youth. Personally not that best option as we need a physical ball winner who isn't blessed with injury every other week.

(4)
(11)

Would be surprised if Parker left London, and think Rodwell would be a fantastic signing, we must have some cash to spend surely?

(9)
(6)

We have a reported 10m to spend including wages, would like to see Defour from Porto, he would allow delph to play a more attacking role as he would sit next to Westwood. Realistic.

(6)
(9)

Maybe ki from Swansea would be a good CDM for villa

(13)
(9)

Well if it is 10m including wages then it is all spent.
No fees for the three players but if they are all given 25k per week on 2 year deals then we have spent almost 8m on the three, perhaps they might get a game before we get relegated.

(6)
(10)

M'bia is the midfielder, ne fee required, had a good solid season for Sevilla, would be very welcome signing, as have the rest of them

(4)
(7)

Deduct the savings that have and are being made and you still have your £10 million

(4)
(5)

I would say wages only count per season so its not all spent plus if they get some off the books it will be off set

hightower

(4)
(3)

I'd like the look of M'Bia, he played well at Sevilla during their UEFA Cup win. Bit of bit and power in the midfield.

(6)
(4)

We need at least 2 midfielders in my opinion, certainly player like ki would be ideal especially as last season we just couldn't keep the ball or string any passes together. Ki would be really useful!
Finch

(5)
(3)

I see a majority disagreed with my comment as to the ten million having been mostly spent. Football fans can be one eyed but to disagree with plain and simple maths?!

So even presuming another 10 m has been shaved off the liabilities on the balance sheet, then Ki for 4m fee on a three year deal on 30k per week that totals 8.6m excluding agents fees bonuses sign on feed etc etc.

Clubs are businesses nowadays especially those for sale. When these spending promises come out to fans they are genuine but they are not a contract so you cannot check the small print to see whether it says 10m in transfer fees will be spent this summer.

11 Jul 2014 14:06:01
Some rumours today that Villa may be looking to put a bid in for Ki from Swansea (on loan at Sunderland last season) - reports vary of a bid anything from 2m to 6.5m - and 'apparently' not on a huge wage (after Celtic and Swansea) and therefore may fit our budget

Not sure how much credence to give to this rumour although I do rate him as a ball playing midfielder who can score goals

Hughes

(5)
(11)

I have heard this rumour too. He is a very decent player and can play the ball out from the back. And has the strength. Another rumour that might be interesting is Stephane M'Bia the former QPR man.

Cjr

(1)
(7)

"reports vary of a bid anything from 2m to 6.5m"

Rules the Villa out.

There is nowhere near like that amount to spend on transfers.

There is no sign of a buyer. Even if there was someone, due diligence would take months to complete.

Its possible that Lambert might persuade Lerner to release some more funds but given that Lambert is clearly trying to offload players to raise funds, this is unlikely.

I am no Lerner hater - he has invested more than enough money nor am I a Lambert hater but its going to be a tough ride.

(9)
(7)

I'm not sure where any of this money from player sales is going to come from. Everyone who has left us so far, of the players Lambert is looking to offload, are going out on loans - so far Helenius and Sylla.

Keiron Richardson to sign in the next 24 hours

jsteed89

(13)
(5)

Bendtner and richardson confirmed fridayWhat do we think of the signings so far is it improving the side vtid

(8)
(6)

Richardson is better then Luna and Bennett. Bendtner has to prove himself as everyone thinks his wack.

(10)
(2)

As much as bentdners reputation goes against him, I would think that if you just look at goals, if he played the same amount a of minutes for villa this season as agbonlahor did last season he would double the amount of goals gabby scored. Obv gabby adds another dimension, but let's be honest, his pace didn't count for much in terms of end product - other than 44 minutes against Liverpool where he was unusually fantastic.

(12)
(4)

Richardson would be a good signing, I don't particularly like him playing at LB because he does make mistakes an gets caught out of position, but if we play 3 at the back an wing backs then he could be ideal to play the left wing back, he does have qualities, scores goals from distance, free kick specialist, good crosser, plays a good pass and is a hard working player, no real down side to getting him on a free.

>Scg87

(14)
(8)

Let's hope he is as good as the last K. Richardson to wear the villa shirt.

(12)
(3)

Villa really are scrapping the barrel here, any free signing we can and then Richardson? He was good when he actually performed but is too in consistent and was relegated for a reason! Some things needs to change at the Villa and soon!

AVFC-Chris

(6)
(18)

A state of confusion can be worrying, and I believe that would be the thoughts of a negative person. Let's not confuse negative thoughts with realism though. Paul Lambert is trying to do the best he can with what he has. Take the practical view point. If PL is fired (as is expected) when new owners come in, he is not old enough to retire or eloquent enough to enter the world of football punditry. No, our manager's only route back to work is as a manager. He is probably (and wrongly, in my opinion) going to try to have a season or half a season like any player would, playing for a new contract. Unlike a player though, PL is not in control of all of the elements that will ensure (or otherwise) he has a good "swan song" season. The players he has bought in, gives us the experience we crave from players who are neither needy or desperate for the pay check. I believe they are players that will no more want a relegation on their playing file, than us fans! As for Roy Keane, the fact that most journalists seem to be reporting that Kieran Richardson will sign because of him and their past history at United and Sunderland (wasn't he a club record signing at Sunderland?), speaks volumes as to his potential impact.
We need to remain positive guys. The day we marry, we all believe our other half to be the most beautiful, the most thoughtful person on the planet. Only the most cynical would disagree. We all accept however this is not the case but we still focus on our positive attributes and the feelings of why we're with the person we are. Does this sound familiar? Sounds a lot like being a devoted football fan to me! So before we all relegate the club before the 1st August, let's inject some common sense, not cynicism. Let's add some support, not promote detraction. We don't NEED to support the Villa, we CHOOSE to. So why try to demoralise that which we have chosen?
Today, we are a different club. 1982 was a generation ago. Remember the past. Don't crave it's return because that will lead to disappointment and frustration and they in turn will show on the terraces. If this happens, then we stop being supporters and become the opposition. We can play our part and encourage the lads by letting them know we are still there for them AND the club! Here endeth the sermon!

Feeling positive or negative about your club is not a choice it's a reaction
I feel negative about our prospects for the season because of the chaos we are in, the lack of clarity from the boardroom, the signing of poor players and the fact we have a poor manager and now a lunatic side kick at the helm, make it the only logical reaction.
If tomorrow we are bought by Bill Gates who subsequently buys Messi, Ronald, Thiago Silva, Di Maria, Kroos, Lahm, Yaya Toure and Neymar, I won't half cheer up

Mendax

(5)
(13)

Mendax, Why is there a lack of clarity from the boardroom?

We know the situation, we know Lerner isn't prepared to risk his wealth again chasing 6th place, we know the club is up for sale, we know we don't have a lot of money to spend.

What exactly do you want them to clarify?

It's all been said. Its all been clarified.
Right now it's all about waiting for a new owner.

>Scg87

(15)
(3)

The only one of those things we know for sure is that the club is up for sale
The rest we have second guessed and surmised ourselves
Lerner's pronouncements are always late and always lacking detail
That's what I mean by a lack of clarity
I hope that's clear enough

No matter who puts the shirt on we will always support them from the terrace

(2)

I've seen some reports about Villa at times that have made me laugh but one in todays newspaper takes the cake.
Apparantly, we have to sell before we can buy so to raise money we are having a clearout of eight players.
Those eight are Helenius, Hutton, Bennett, Luna, Tonev, Sylla, Stevens and Herd. Apart from the fact that Helenius has already left on a seasons loan, so no sale money there, just how much do Villa realistically think they can get for that little lot? If they get half a million in for all seven of them combined it will be a miracle. I despair sometimes.

These are some of the most uninspiring signings you could come up with, I'd rather we take punts on unknowns from the Cyprian league or something, Kieren Richardson ffs.

{Ed007's Note - Just as a note to Clarrie Blue, Terry Gennoe has taken time off because of ill health, he might actually have retired. He recently had an op on his leg (I think it was) and is recovering.}

I must be the only villa fan happy with our signings, all premiership experience, international experience, Richardson will be good to

I agree mate. You really must be the only fan happy with our signings

Mendax

(5)
(8)

I'm not exactly happy with the signings but I'm realistic, I would have preferred Colback Lescott etc signed on free's but we know the wage budget isn't allowing for that.

Senderos, Cole an maybe Richardson are experienced players who will be an improvement so we can at least be hopeful of having more leadership.

An there is still £10m to spend if reports are to be believed, so no reason why we can't get a quality player or 2 later in the transfer window.

I'm never one to get worked up an be negative in pre season, especially when I'm fully aware of our situation, I can't quite understand why others can't understand.

He is useless just like senderos.

It's odd when you think about it - Arsene Wenger signed them both for Arsenal and he has always had an eye for a player - he certainly hasn't signed many duds over the years so perhaps they aren't as useless as you think.
Clarrie.

(9)
(4)

Report in the last half hour on news agencies says that Bendtner will definitely be signing this week, so we shall see.
Personally, though I don't expect many of you to agree with me, I think this will be a good signing if it goes through.
He can sometimes be a bit lazy but my bet is that Keane will bring him up to scratch.
Clarrie.

(7)
(8)

He is never good enough for a top 4 side, but let's face it, we are a bottom 4 side. He is certainly a better all round player than Kozac as a backup to Benteke, which may mean we don't launch it long quite so often.

(5)
(5)

With this possible third free transfer, probably the least inspiring of the three, it worries me that the wages paid to bender will be wasted on the bendch, injured, suspended, awaiting trial when more worthwhile targets should be pursued. in our attempt to see premiership experience, we have omitted the quality / good factor. I just hope that once again there are 3 or 4 worse teams than us this season otherwise in the words of the great private frazer - we're all doomed!

Grealish can't count for yet but looking very promising, Bacuna as played wide and when we play 4. 3. 3 gabby, andi do aswel. Tonev a joke!

I apologise for saying all our existing wingers are rubbish because those that can and have played on the wings are not all bad - however, I do stick to my feeling that we definitely don't need to spend our limited funds on another two of them when there are other positions that are crying out to be strengthened.

Ashley young might be coming back to villa on the cheap

(20)
(24)

Falls over to much

(13)
(10)

I hope not! Didn't like him when he was at VP and his antics since he has left just confound that

(17)

That falling over won us a lot of penalties and free kicks which won games

(13)

The rumour that West Brom may want Hutton made me laugh.
I can just see the Baggies fans putting the welcome mat out for him after he almost decapitated Shane Long a couple of seasons ago.
Football fans tend to have long memories for that sort of thing.

To whoever commented above and said they never liked Young when he was at the Villa, you are joking right?

The amount of chances he created, the number of goals he set up, the way he destroyed Everton and the Blues, his link up play with Carew and Barry and his quality at set pieces? Oh yeah sounds awful.

What about all the times he barely got touched, fell over, looked shocked when ge didn't get a foul rather than traking back leaving us open at the back. Then when he come back to vp as a utd player dives to. win a peno and when they scored it celebrated like he won the world cuo. Good riddence I say. dobt want him back. Short memories some people

Did you say cheap or did you mean cheat?

What, you mean like virtually every player in the premier league then? They all fall over way too easily, or claim they didn't do anything when they clear just elbowed an opponent, or claim so corner/ throw in even when they know it came of them. They are all at it yo a greater of lesser extent. Most of us do it as fans, happily claim a marginal pen at one end, but would swear bilnd it wasn't a pen if it was in our box.

What's the problem with young coming back, we don't exactly have players nocking down the door to come to the villa, take him use him and see what happens. can't be a bad as the players we've already got.

(12)
(4)

I agree with what your all saying and although I don't like the guy he is definately far better then what we have and if he wear a Villa shirt again I would back him like any other player. For me I don't like cheats and I don't like players that disrespect teams they used to play for and Young is both if them and I would rather us spend tge money on somebody else. Also golden rule in football. NEVER GO BACK!

He hasn't made a you turn and sounds nothing of the sort. All he has said is that he is commited to villa until a sale goes through. So in other words he is selling and he is doing all he can to provide support for the upcoming season. Dannybronx
