Brighton to sign Joe Bennett on season long loan. As happy as i'd be to see him go please don't let this mean we'd get Riise seems pointless!

I'd hope Cissokho first choice with Richardson as backup and Stevens for emergencies. REALLY don't need Riise.

I'm still not to sure if we are actually in for him, all the reports say he said we had been in touch along with other teams, but he hadn't had any firm offers, believe into it what you will I personally don't think it will happen

I agree, we may have enquired about Riise before we bought Cissokho, not needed now. Riise probably desperate for a Premier League club and is using Villa to generate interest elsewhere. Hopefully!

Villa to appoint arsenals tom fox as chief executive, this is the guy that helped arsenal secure their 170m kit deal with puma, also randy to fund 2 more transfers

Ask yourself this. If you were Fox, assumably relatively comfortable at Arsenal, would you agree to moving to Villa without assurances over ownership and job stability after six years in a well paid position? This appointment means one of two things 1. Learner has made a u turn, 2. The new owner is soon to be annoinced and already making decisions. The recent change in transfer philisophy also ties in with points 1 and 2 above.

John Arne Riise saying Villa have bben in contact. Hope we don't take it further we don't need him and could use the wages to fix other positions.

The Villan

(1)

We don't need him, not sure what we need?

Reports online suggesting we are interested in signing Sebastian Blanco from Metalist. 26 year old Argentinian CAM. Villa Park could do with some South American Flair.

(7)
(1)

All riise said was villa along with many other sides had made contact, but nothing concrete, blanco looks like he would spice up our midfield

JFVilla4life

(3)
(1)

Blanco looks decent, quick tricky 2 footed, yes please.

(4)
(1)

I've supported signings such as senderos and cole as I can see the thought behind those deals and where they could fit in and what they could potentially offer us, but I would be pretty annoyed if we went ahead and signed riise. There is no need for him and he is below the standard that we already have. I suspect he's trying to drum up interest for himself rather than us actually being interested and hopefully it goes no further. I can't see it happening myself.

Reading the comment about Villa & South American Flair.
Had to go check cause the old memory is wonky, but can confirm that we have signed a Colombian already. Carlos Sanchez (defensive midfielder) is awaiting International Clearance as far as I have read.

Last season we had (I think) the worst record for losing after taking the lead. IMO PL has looked to address the defense. If we score the goals of last season without conceding, we'll be fine, just fine. if we're lucky, Benteke will come back and score a bundle as well.

People like that (more $ than sense) should not be allowed anywhere near English or for that matter European football. If they're so keen then they should get behind U. S Major League Soccer. We need laws protecting our ENGLISH league from parasites and wannabees like them.

ASTON VILLA LINK!

Omar Abdulrahman & Danny Wellbeck one of these a loan deal, might just be a rumour but hey very tasty especially after 0-1 win at Stoke and Sanchez to come in for the poor overweight Nzogbia

(0)
(15)

Well done to Lambert on the players he has brought in on a shoestring. Def made us stronger!

(15)
(1)

Who are you? Do you even like football? Clearly know nothing about our team if you think Sanchez will replace nzogbia, two completely different players playing completely different roles!

(12)
(1)

Can see what the fella means. Could push Richardson on the wing and move Delph further up the pitch

(3)
(7)

Abdulrahman would only join on loan if it was with view to a pernament deal. Man United needs all the players they can get at the moment. And for you to say that N'Zogbia is poor is a bit harsh considering the fact that he is a creative player and play well yesterday as did the whole team. Also, Carlos Sanchez wouldn't replace N'Zogbia. N'Zogbia is a flair player, whilst Sanchez is a hard working, tough tacking midfielder.

Cjr

(4)

Sanchez will replace westwood in the middle with delph, and when benteke comes back replaces gabby up top and probably cole behind him when fit, also I think there's 1 more player to come, either holtby lennon or sinclair as moses opted to join stoke.

(2)

Westwood needs to learn to read the game better. He would be fantastic then.

Ssn say we have signed sanchez

Moses gone off the radar, no mentions anywhere. AV style is to keep quiet until the paperwork is signed so perhaps he could be the next name on the list. The future looks bright, the future is claret & blue. No more excusing the "kids" they are all grown men and the return of the Lerner exiles means that there are several new names at VP, almost a new eleven players.

Lambert should try to get a striker on loan.

Jelle Vossen would be my choice. He can play for Villa with an option to buy the player at the end of this season.

I guess that he would cost £11-14 million. I don't think wages will be a problem, as he earns less than £20k per week at Genk.

(1)
(3)

Great signing and what we have need for quite a few years now we just need a winger and I think we could do with a striker for a 3 months to cover injurys and get benteke and Kozak fully fit before we put them in

Lots of conflicting reports about the fee. Have seen £1.5 million but also 4.7million!! Its a massive difference for this sort of fee (either half of our budget or a fifth!) so not sure which end of the scale is right.

Villas next CEO will be Nicola Cortese former Southampton CEO
Upthevillafc

Wow we have a CEO! I take it he will have a few billion in his back pocket for us to have a chance of staying up this season? It's a new owner we need who cares about a CEO

Its a rumour, nothing is confirmed.

(2)

Cortese is not exactly a football man, he is a business man more notably a swiss banker, but this is very interesting as it signal the beginning of a takeover. With money now being spent this week on cissokho and possibly the colombian DM Sanchez this could indicate Lerner sticking to his word of spending £10-15 mil then leaving around the kick off of the new season.

This would be the best thing for villa in a long time!

Like this post a lot if true! New CEO new owners

Cortese, he is the man who went and found Pottechino for Southampton, he has balls of steel because at the time the current manager was the fans favourite due to their promotion. This guy is just what we need, top class business man and exactly the right fit for CEO. Great as the bridge between the owner and management especially to getting the funds needed. He is a great operator.

Hope this is true as surely it would mean new owners are just round the corner

Have just read a paper (sun) and it says that any deal to sign Sanchez is off, I'd like to believe their story to be un true, and as the reporter from our game on Saturday didn't know who we were playing, as they put villa 0 Roma 0 I don't think they have a clue

And in the Birmingham mail it's saying we are close to signing sanchez

I'd be interested hand on heart how much people know about him. I watched a lot of Spanish football last season including games outside the big 2, and he isn't someone that springs to mind. Columbia games were focusing on James R and not our man. I'm sure that people will be disagreeing for the sake of it, however I'd be interested peoples opinions on the above. Is this another Syilla?? It's the old saying, you get what you pay for!!

(4)
(2)

To say you get what you pay for is ridiculous. Christian Benteke cost us 7mill and we have a top premier league player. We paid just 1 million less for Bosko Balaban and I think the less said about him the better. You can find hidden gems. let's hope this guy is one of them!!

Sorry, could you find any other hidden gems through the archives?

Recent years for villa.
Mark Delaney £250,000
Martin Laursen £3,000,000

Patrick Viera £3.5 mill
Van Persie £3 mill
Tim Cahill £1.5 mill

Roy Keane pictured at molineux yesterday watching wolves victory against norwich, I've been told he was watching Danny Batth of Wolves Centre back and his performance justified why we could be there watching him and also he was watching nathan redmond who did not do much but maybe a replacement for tonev who is heading to celtic

Or to announce Cissokho!

Alright villadave, don't think its the cissokho thing, I've heard that a ceo has been chosen and they are just going through personal things with him. its very strange in the sense that if a buyer were to come in next week, and we've just taken a new ceo on, then who's to say the new owner doesn't have their own ceo in mind? could possibly be that the new ceo IS the new owners choice?

You could be right, we will have to wait and see.

Villa4Ever

(3)

Never heard of him.

Prob

(5)
(5)

I don't understand why it is so important for us to have heard of someone for it to be a good signing. Do people not realise that at some point in their career the big name players was unknown. There's just no satisfying some of the fans. We get experience (they are washed up) we get up and coming youth ( never heard of him). Come on guys you need to show more faith. I personally would rather us win games through shear hard work rather than buying the leaugue. rant over haha

Dannybronx

(7)
(1)

Tell you what, Sanchez would be a great signing, especially for the position we find ourselves in at the minute, QPR, Everton also rumored for him. I also saw an article saying United were looking to get him in as a squad player. this is a signing i'm really hoping comes off, can see him having a Benteke'esque impact, as in a few great seasons and seeing his valuation rocket. ps i'm also quite behind the Cissokho move, hoping they both come in, then I wouldn't be too dis-heartened if that was all our business, although i'd love another forward

MrBojangles

(3)
(1)

Dannybronx has a legit point what about benteke and bacuna

(4)
(1)

Those were two good young signings but there have been way too many unsuccessful young signings to make us loose confidence eg tonev, bowery, helenius, sylla, Bennet and Luna. It's not surprising no one wants any more unknown youngsters

(2)
(3)

You Can not count Helenius, the guy was never given a chance was he.

villadave

The young signings mentioned were not given enough time. Sub appearances are not a fair crack of the whip. Agree that some of them have not hit the ground running but then again the lack of senior players around them cannot have helped

(5)
(0)

I said I've never heard of him but I didn't say that this was a bad thing.
My point is that I just can't agree with the excitement of the post above and pretend to be happy with a potential signing that I've never heard of. And just because the player is good on Football Manager or YouTube doesn't mean he will be good in real life.

People seem to be talking about this guy as if he is a young up and coming player who has the potential to increase in value over the years. the guy is 28.

Regardless of his age, he'd still be a welcomed signing, people say we need a CDM then when we are linked with one they complain, I don't understand.

Villa4Ever

(0)

It's almost impossible for 4-5 young players to be successful when all are playing together an learning at the same time, I'd say the players signed have ability and potential but playing them in an already struggling team an expecting them to perform is unrealistic.

>Scg87

(7)
(1)

Why is 28 old? I can't believe that anyone thinks that a 28 year old has little future. Think about Gerard, Lampard, Barry, all in the twilight but able to do a job. In some areas of sport 28 is reaching maturity, both in strength and mind. Just reflect that men start to grow up at 30 when our brain rules our body rather than our balls ruling our brain. Ask any women, they all know.

Oldvillan

When I mentioned sanchez being 28, I didn't mean it as a bad thing. i'm aware 28 is aften when players start to come into ther prime and heaven knows we could do with some experience and presence in our midfield.

I only mentioned his age as is seemed the tone of the debate was about him as an up and coming youngster, which he isnt

He also had a solid World Cup for Columbia, I would welcome this deal with open arms, as it's just what we need, a strong defensive midfielder and at 28 he's seen it all and got the tshirt

warvillian

Aly not alex! Decent signing I think, reports around the £2million mark.
PL can't be planning to use Richardson at left back then if this is the case?which makes sense as I think he's better further forward.

I thought he played at centre back for Liverpool?
Vlaars replacement?

If Cissokho is to join Richardson could be deployed as a centre midfielder as he has played there before. But I'm guessing he won't be Number 9. So my question is who are we signing who will become our number 9?

Sorry Mendax way off he was used as either right or left wing back

Mendax, perhaps you are mixing him up with Sakho who is still at Liverpool and plays centre back?

Aston Villa are linked with 20yr old Brian Lenihan, a full-back from Cork City who is also capable of playing in CM; he is a young prospect who has been backed to be better than Coleman in a couple of years, is performances have attracted interest from Arsenal, Celtic and QPR, however it is rumoured the player would prefer a move to Villa park as they have a great youth development and he would get more play time. If he decides to move to another club villa will turn there attentions to Kelly from Liverpool (loan) who is a RB predominately who can also play CB. another options is Wass who players is trade in Ligue 1 with Evian, he is 25yrs old who can play RB or RW, this rumours have signalled the loan move of Lowton to Middlesbrough, as he is deemed surplus to requirements at AVFC.

"Great youth development" - When exactly was that? On the day another of our supposedly highly rated youngsters fails to make any impact and signs a 3 year contract with MK Dons!!

Caruthers was only rated highly by users of this site

warvillian

In that case, it proves the point even more. He was rated by fans but not the management. However we have produced nobody better in recent years!

Daniel Johnson, when he is given a premier league chance will shine. Jack Grealish is starting to get his chance. Both better overall footballers than Carruthers imo.

Rumour that Villa will pull off the surprise signing of Celtic defence Virgil van Dijk, people are saying the deal involves players going the other way, also Victor Moses on loan and the continued pursuit of Ki

(6)
(8)

Celtic need van dijk especially after the first leg against legia Warsaw would like ki but he is waiting for arsenal to make an offer and Swansea want to give him a new contract (he won't stay) Moses would also be a good signing but if it takes Jose this long to reply then we may not get him though we are in desperate need of a winger now carruthers is gone if we fail to buy one then we should give Danny o brien a try

(5)
(7)

I am sure Ed will know a bit more on this one?
Have not heard anything about this at all, also I thought the Ki speculation was dead in the water, did he not turn us down.

villadave

Ed07{Ed007's Note - I'd be surprised to see van Dijk sign for Villa, he has been linked with nearly every EPL team so far and the murmurings were he wasn't too keen on moving to Southampton or Newcastle, I have a hunch he would like to get a move to Spurs because they have European football.
Would Villa be willing to pay £8+ million for him and compete with other teams with regards to wages etc?}

Lerner is freeing up £10m to allow Lambert to sign three players, these players are rumoured to be Ki, Moses and Sinclair

(4)
(5)

Don't want Sinclair who is quite frankly rubbish the other 2 would be good signings

(5)
(7)

You wouldn't get them 3 for 10 million on your computer!!

(5)
(7)

Moses would be on loan, sinclair would be £4m and key £4.2m so yes you could.

(2)
(4)

I love this the papers say he is over to free up funds, but there is no evidence that why he is here, I've also heard rumours that a takeover is imminent but I'll believe that when I see it

(3)
(2)

There's no takeover and it will be just 10 mil for transfers which means more crap. We will be relegated this season

(3)
(4)

10 million want get you any qualitie players, Moses, Sinclair, really are they good for the villa. don't think so, was at the game last night the main rumour was villa will be sold in 2 weeks and learner going through the process.

(1)
(2)

Why does he need to fly in to release £10m, has he never heard of e-mail, text, phone etc. The papers just talk crap.

(5)
(0)

I agree it's all paper talk so we know nothing for certain but Ki and Moses will definitely strengthen the squad, Moses may not have been as good as he was at Wigan in recent years but he was a small fish in a big pond so to speak, I think he would thrive at Villa, might just be me being optimistic but we shall see what happens! UTV!

I have also heard these rumours of a sale taking place right now, and that is why mr Lerner has come to England, the thing is it's all speculation only Lerner his financial advisor and a potential buyer know what's going on, no one else. And that certainly goes for the press, as a private company the owner is no legal right to announce a potential takeover till it is completed. It's not the same when Ellis sold as we were a public company then he had to announce on the stock exchange we were in the process of a take over.

Birmingham fail quoting mk don planning swoop for carruthers

warvillain

(1)

Ian Taylor said today we cannot compete in the transfer market anymore, and it's true, breaks my heart to see everyone strengthening there side, and their all spending money, we are in deep trouble I just hope RL sees wats going on and spends soon or we will get left behind

(8)
(2)

Pinning your hopes on Randy Lerner smelling the roses will lead to disappointment. He's given us up and is not interested

Mendax

(6)
(2)

Randy Lerner is not going to wake up soon and invest, he is no longer an investor like before, he is now a seller, any money he spends he will not get back, Until a buyer is found we have what we have. The club is in a better situation than pre Randy, Bodymoor, holte end pub, Stadium, I know we are all frustrated with our current situation but Randy has improved us as a club, We still have some really good players and our great club is not in debt, we will rise again keep the faith chaps. UTv

(6)
(4)

I think we need to sign at least 3 more players. A right and left mid/winger and a solid holding/center midfielder.

(3)
(7)

RL is apparently making £10million available for transfers. Hopefully this will be enough for us to finally get ki sung yueng and moses and maybe even one other.

Lovespud

At the game last night crying out for a holding midfielder, read that learner in town to hand over 10 million that's pea nuts also was rumours going round that villa have been sold.!

Juventus have made a 10 million euro offer for Vlaar. looks like we are going to have to start the season with the dreadful lot that's shipping goals left right and centre. Isn't it just wonderful what lerner and his merry men have turned our great club into.

villanick

(8)
(10)

Vlaar won't go he "loves it at villa" according to Lambo and the prem is a better league apparently

(9)
(7)

Lerner may not have turned us into champions but he invested a lot of money into our club. If you was around when lerner brought our club we was a lot worse off then than we are now hence why he got the club so cheap.

(9)
(7)

Look, cheerful - it doesn't mean we are going to accept a bid just because we receive one.
Clarrie blue.

(7)
(4)

I heard about this Juve bid thismorning, personally I don't believe it, the source doesn't exactly have a good record when it comes to being accurate


>Scg87

So, my fellow long suffering Villa fans, as the new season is upon us perhaps it is time for some predictions so I'll start us off -- Villa to finish eighth this season.
I see the top seven as being in order, Chelsea, Man City, Man Utd, Arsenal, Liverpool, Spurs and Everton. I see no reason for us to fear any of the other 12 teams and in order I think they will finish as Newcastle in 9th place then Stoke, Swansea, Sunderland, Hull City, Southampton, West Ham, Crystal Palace, West Brom, then Leicester, Q. P. R. and Burnley as the bottom three for relegation. Any thoughts, anyone?
Clarrie Blue.

(4)
(14)

Agree with Clarrie blue if we do the opposite of what we do against Groningen we can get mid to high table though I think we need an owner with a 30m transfer budget to spend on someone decent preferably a left winger or wing back I am thinking villa ninth with Sunderland Leicester and burnley going down in that order and chelski will win the league and maybe a cup run for us UTV

(6)
(9)

I really wish I could be as optimistic, and think we will finish 8th, but to be honest I can't see any foundation for it. We were shocking last season, and we have added Senderos (loaned out by Fulham because he wasn't good enough for them!), Cole (done nothing consistently for 3/4 yrs and can't stay fit) and Richardson (I think he could be a reasonable signing, but he is no world beater). Added to that are the bomb squad, Bent (3 goals in 24 games for Fulham!!), Hutton (enough said) and N'zogbia (has done very little in his time as Villa Park). To compound it Benteke will miss the start of the season. I don't think we will be relegated (but only because like last year there will be at least 3 teams even worse than us), but I can't see any reason to think we will be in the top half - we have just been beaten 4-1 by Groningen for goodness sake!

(11)
(2)

Anywhere from 10th to 15th will be a improvement, somewhere I thought we was heading until injuries started taking there toll.

(8)
(3)

Lambert will be sacked just before pardew before xmas

warvillain

(13)
(3)

Reckon lambert will go if and when we get a new owner, so much for august 1st!

(11)
(1)

I saw news that mk dons wants samir curruthers on permanent deal really if lambert sells him I hope he don't I think he could push on for first team

(2)
(5)

Haha 8th?? maybe if in the next 8 days lerner sells, lambert goes and we keep hold of vlaar! if none of this happens we will be relegated for sure!

Aston Villa are prepared to bid 3m for Scott Sinclair and get Victor Moses in on loan

(19)
(18)

Your believing the tabliods again, and according to them Scott Sinclair is plan b if we miss out on moses

(9)
(15)

I read it was we are going for moses on loan and if that didn't happen villa will go for Sinclair

(8)
(12)

Why would we need two more wingers when we have grealish carruthers etc already though would take either alone

(5)
(16)

Why would we need both?

(11)
(11)

Both our wingers (gabby and wiemann) are converted forwards and go missing for half the season. n'zogs injury prone and we can't rely on U20's to come into the first team and start performing straight away. i'd take both.

(11)
(9)

Whilst I wouldn't disagree that we could do with a direct winger, and Moses would probably be a good idea, I really can't go along with people who see Sinclair as the answer. He was a laughing stock at the Albion last season. If he is the answer what the hell is the question?
Clarrie blue.

(8)
(3)

Agree about Sinclair being a laughing stock and he was on loan at blues

(5)
(5)

Sorry to disagree with you, whoever you are, but Sinclair was on loan at Blues in 2009 and played for them 14 times -badly.
Last season he was on loan at West Brom and played for them 5 times - even more badly - until they gave up on him. I wouldn't have him at Villa Park at ANY price.
Clarrie.

(3)
(5)

Sorry did you watch the 14 games and 5 games? He must have been doing something right to cost 8 million. I remember at Swansea in their pro mission season he was their best player. You don't go bad over night! Clarrie, just out of interest who would you like to see down Villa Park?

(4)
(4)

When will the powers realise what kind of an institution they are ruining, THIS IS ASTON VILLA!!!!!
We started the game, we were the most successful club in the country, we were one of the greatest clubs in the world, were still the 4th most successful club in the country. Were based in the 2nd city, what kind of salesman is trying to sell us, they should be lining up 4 it. Hope they sell to someone with the money and passion to put us back were we belong. UTV

Sleuth

(12)
(3)

Well, Lionel Messi would be nice - but seriously, if the best we can do is Sinclair, we might as well give up.
As it happens, I was unlucky enough to witness 3 of Sinclairs none performances for Albion last season. Enough said.
Suffice it to say they were not good. And no - he isn't and never was worth 8 million quid.
Clarrie.

Rumours are circulating that Lazio are about to make an offer for Vlaar, the offer is expected to be around 7mil.
Also Middlesbrough are showing an interest in Lowton, not sure about how much.

I say JOG ON to Lazio.

villadave

(10)
(8)

His representative has said there is no truth in lazio talk, once again all paper talk, they said they were unwilling to spend 7million euros on him, he will meet the rest of the team Saturday let's just see what happens, please don't believe everything you read in papers. There is always speculation in villa signing players, however the only speculation on the 3 we have signed was when they were having their medicals!!!

(4)
(4)

I would not sell lowton to anyone. If lambert had of played him last season more he would have gone to the World Cup with England.

(8)
(19)

I believe the Lowton to Boro is a loan offer

(5)
(8)

Very polite.

Oldvillan

(1)
(6)

Lowton is not good enough!

You obviously didn't see him against chesterfield!
enough said.

(10)
(11)

I don't know whether your "Lowton for England" proclamation says more about your poor judgement of players or the state of the England team
It's probably a bit of both

Mendax

(11)
(9)

I would say at one time the season before people were talking about lowton to arsenal. Then he is late for training by 10 minutes and is dropped from the team. For me lowton is the best right back we have at the club and in a good defence would only get better. He came from Sheffield United so it is a big step up for him.

(12)
(3)

I've spent the last two years watching matt lowton play week in week out at VP, and maybe it was the previous year of watching alan hutton play but matt lowton is leagues past both hutton and bacuna in the wing back role. His crossing is now probably the best in the squad now Lambert has let albrighton leave, consistently a top performer from the team and yes he has defensive weaknesses but for a 24 year old he has a lot of potential as shown by arsenals interest in him after his first season. To let him go now would be a stupid as selling benteke to someone like Newcastle because his second season did not live up to his first. UTV

(13)
(4)

A couple of years ago one of the ED's stated that Lowton and Westwood would both play for England. So we all get it wrong.

Oldvillan

(6)
(3)

Arsenal defenders.
Because they're the benchmark aren't they

Mendax

(3)
(7)

To whoever said Lowtons fans ob didn't see the Chesterfield game and has a load of dislikes for it. I am a massive Matt Lowtin fan. Thought he was our best player 2 years ago and couldn't understand y Lambert never played him last year. till I went to Chesterfield. The previous poster is spot on! He got skinned by lower league players time after time and his first touch was terrible. It was embarrassing.

(3)
(4)

I think lowton could be one of PL better signing if so time was spent with him, he is not the greatest defender i've come acroos but is a good attacking full back, got to be better than "i don't know how to defend bacuna "

(15)

That's just tabloid talk

God Almighty!!!!
Clarrie blue.

Want happen, Sinclaire will go to another team due to lack of fund

(8)
(5)

Is there ANYBODY on here who actually thinks signing HIM would be a good idea?? If there is - Give me strength!!
Clarrie blue.

(8)
(11)

Have just been listening to our defeat at Chesterfieldtonight. Admittedly a very much second string side put out by Lambert but Guzan played and saved us from a good thrashing.
No one on the night, other than possibly Grealish enhanced their chances of being given a chance this season. Very poor. Early days I know but if they want to put themselves forward for consideration for the first team, they should be doing better than that.
Clarrie blue.

(13)
(6)

Honestly, what happened to Lambert's strategy of signing youthful players??

(2)
(7)

Honestly, where've you been for the last 2 months.

brynner

(6)
(8)

What happened to the Moses deal how long does it take Jose to reply?

(8)
(1)

That's because it's all tabloid talk, the papers don't have a clue

(7)
(3)

Guzan didn't save us from a thrashing. I was there and he was at fault for their 1st and 3rd goals and his kicking was apaulling! I agree Grealish helped his chances but I also thought Janoi, Jores, Charlie and Callum Robinson also impressed a lot. Was a lot of positives from the Chesterfield game. Score doesn't matter

(4)
(7)

Moses is the nearest we will get to divine help.

Oldvillan

(4)
(6)

Whoever said that about Guzan is right he was well dodgy and lambert told him so apparently but villa have no better keepers and Guzan is capable of doing well as he got 12-13 save of th season

(4)
(4)

Guzan wasn't he keeper he was last year, maybe a world cup distraction, the use of given so far in the friendlies may be an indicator for the season

Talk about Villa wanting Moses is a smokescreen according to few people, Marko Marin is Lambert's target

(6)
(16)

I'd take them both. but think Marin is the better player.

(5)
(12)

Hopefully not i'd rather have Moses over Marin

(8)
(12)

Again, a midfielder who hardly ever scores a goal, we do not need.

WARVILLIAN

Want happen with Everton sniffing around!

(3)
(7)

Everton can only loan 1 player from Chelsea and that looks like being atsu, so moses is up for grabs, West Bromwich are our main rivals for this signing, will be very welcome if lambo pulls it off

(8)
(1)

Everton want
Lukaku

They want to buy lukaku, and loan atsu

delighted to say that villa have 2 more players on the way but there's no truth in the moses loan. Told tom cleverly could be a option on loan

mike12345

(5)
(10)

Hahaha cleverly? Not even lambert is that dumb. Lambert has asked Chelsea if we can have moses on loan that's a fact.

Ed03{Ed003's Note - Could you register please}

And these two players are.

I heard that Roy and Lambert were looking at Danny Batth from the wolves. Not sure how concrete this is.

Either way he's a local lad and a childhood villa fan.

We're getting moses from Chelsea on loan

(10)

"How concrete", was that a pun?

27 Jul 2014 20:09:34
Don't mean to name drop but spoke to Charlie Nicholas again today. He said Lambert has be offer around the 20m mark 3 times off 3 different clubs recently For benteke. Apparently PL said he couldn't get a better striker for that amount of money. Thoughts? Fordy.

(3)
(14)

Um I don't think so as he won't pass a medical, it's a gamble to be honest

(7)
(2)

20 million for Benteke is a joke in todays market.
I know that sound s crazy but the football market is just that:Crazy
If we did sell him, I'd be disappointed with anything under £40, million

Mendax

(9)
(10)

Put it this way if Borini is worth £14m Bentekes at least £40m

The Villan

(11)
(5)

Players still pass medicals when they're injured, plus he's training again now anyway.
Also you're valuing benteke on his first season and possibly the first half of last season. Think we would have taken 20m if he continued to play the way he did during the second half of the season.
Having said that I want him to stay.

villacon

(8)
(5)

He's only very light training, and I'm sorry 20m you are having a laugh mate, I don't think villa would take that at all, I agree he's not worth 40m, but worth more than 20m!!

(9)
(2)

Benteke for me has the potential to be 1 of the best strikers in the world, The boy has everything, We need him more than the 20/30 million, PL won't sell him

(12)
(1)

He won't pass a medical cause he is injured? didn't we buy downing with a broken leg

(14)
(2)

Haha 30 million, you've got your head in the clouds

(2)
(9)

Pure and simple villa won't sell period

(6)
(6)

Of course Villa will sell if the right offer comes in.
Because the decision will be down to Benteke - players decide transfers nowadays, not the Board, not the manager and certainly not the fans.

Few clubs can afford to keep an unhappy player.

Something between 20 and 25 million would be about right
But don't forget the fee will be paid over 2 years - this is the norm for transfers between PL clubs

(5)
(3)

Benteke has been quoted today in one newspaper saying that he wants to stay and has no intention of leaving the club. let's hope this is correct.
Also we are about to offer Vlaar a new contract worth 10 million pounds over 4 years. Can we actually afford such a sum? Much as I want him to stay that seems a bit excessive to me. Any thoughts?
Clarrie blue.

I know this is 'Rumour time' but I heard from a very close source of RL, that he's NOT selling AVFC! will keep you posted.

Villa Boy

(9)
(25)

He made statement saying he's had enough and wants out

(11)
(5)

I really doubt that. This is a silly post, why would someone publicly declare that the club is up for sale and then suddenly change his mind. makes no sense, his heart is not with villa anymore and he will sell villa just like he sold the browns years ago itsk
its going to happen it's matter of time. He's got many contacts soim sure won't be too hard to sell us sometime in the near future.

Don't post nonsense please.

AJ

(10)
(9)

I know he came out saying he wants to sell, but personally I think he has done a u-turn, since he came out saying 'talks were good but no bids have been made and that's he's going to focus on villa for the time being' there have been a few signings and the rumours have been flowing.

villacon

(4)
(12)

Well if he stays he should give lambert a proper war chest to compete

(17)
(2)

The only way I can see lerner staying is if someone buys into the club as shared ownership someone like arison for example. The only reason I feel he was giving up on the club is that he was seeing no returns for the money he's put in. I doubt he will stay even in this case but this is the only way I could see him making any sort of uturn. You must also remember that if there is anyone in the process of buying the club they may want it kept completely hush until the deal goes through a lot can change or go wrong with these types of deals. HAVE FAITH! We have a wonderful club and are due some good fortune. Dannybronx

(9)
(6)

It's not the case that he's NOT selling.
It's very much the case that he CAN'T sell

Mendax

(12)
(13)

Of course, it is possible for someone to change their mind.
How silly to think otherwise.

Lets be clear there: there is no sign of a buyer. I suspect what might have happened is that RL has steeled himself to continue to own the club for the foreseeable future.

Of course, Lambert needs to be given funds but the funds need to be on a sustainable basis ie what the club can afford and that doesn't mean that Lerner has to continually spend his own money

(5)
(1)

Mike Ashley is a prime example of an owner whom doesn't know if he should sell or not. I think it's 3times he's done that.

(4)
(2)

Football (soccer) is a growing sport in the states, with the MLS! Its only amtter of time before the deal is finalised!
Stop making silly negative remarks, when clearly there is no truth in your rumours.
