  1. Not sure if it because its Friday... not sure if its because its a bank holiday weekend.... but refreshing this page appears more important than work.... However, the continued lack of movement is slightly getting to me.....
  2. That is actually a very good point I try....
  3. Clearing out the deadwood and tying our younger assets down with long contracts..... hang on a minute, is someone trying to run the club properly....... Peoples concerns about him being a weak link shows what potential the rest of the squad is starting to show (imo). With people like Amavi in the squad, bacuna may continue to develop into a class act!
  4. Being reported on the BBC live transfer update... Mark Regan BBC WM Sport Posted at 15:20 Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor's move to Aston Villa is on the brink of collapse as the player is understood to be reluctant to move out of the capital. The Togo striker has been in talks with Villa for weeks and look set to be reunited with Tim Sherwood, who was his boss at Spurs. But now the deal, while not totally dead in the water, is pretty close to it. Villa fans will be philosophical as they have had a far busier summer than many would have thought and there are lots of players to get excited about. Furthermore, Sherwood has attacking options now with Rudy Gestede, Libor Kozak, Jordan Ayew and Gabby Agbonlahor. Why has it taken Adebayor so long to realise Birmingham is a bit of a distance from London? Has it moved?
  5. Written by a Villa fan Which probably explains why it is saying what we (I am) are all hoping!
  6. Not sure if its been posted on any of the other threads yet... but interesting read in the Guardian! The title caught my eye... Why Aston Villa could be the surprise package of the Premier League season http://www.theguardian.com/football/who-scored-blog/2015/jul/29/aston-villa-surprise-package-premier-league-season
  7. What a difference a day makes... Last night it appeared Awey was ours subject to a medical... reading the last few pages looks like Lorient is not playing ball? You cant blame Ayew for being pissed.... Still keeping those fingers crossed that this one comes off!
  8. Lets be honest.... we have got rid of 1 striker....
  9. Until/if the guy turns up and plays a full season.... how can someone quantify what he is worth? Passed experience in a different team in a different league? Until he is playing in our team, in this league, with Timmy's 'philosophy', I cant say he is worth x or y.... if by Christmas he has scored 10 goals and we are sitting pretty in the top half of the table, £12m seems like a bargain.... Either way, I am willing to take that chance (with someone elses money) at this stage. Exciting signing IMHO
  10. with the little I know of this guy, I see this as an exciting signing. If we can combine this with the services of the experienced adebayor for a year, we may be picking up a gem! The combination of adebayew (trademark pending) could cause teams havok next season.... and at this stage would soften the blow of the big guy leaving this week.
  11. Its a sign of the times... and appears to be the going rate for a 'hot prospect'.... especially if you are a buyer from the rich Premier League! I much prefer this to the days when we were spunking similar amounts on the likes of Curtis Davis.....
  12. http://www.avfc.co.uk/page/NewsDetail/0,,10265~4116690,00.html New Aston Villa midfielder Tom Cleverley has hailed the influence of Champions League winning midfielders Paul Lambert and Roy Keane in his decision to join the club on a season-long loan deal from Manchester United, with an option to make the move permanent.
