  1. Tony has already said he doesnt believe in re-signing players
  2. No it isnt, we were offered him for £5m. This from Jan 2008 http://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/aston-villa-in-for-5m-rated-radamel-falcao-721726 Then this 18 months later, when we were linked again and also considered Cavani http://www.birminghammail.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/south-american-hot-shots-aim-97269
  3. We also declined the chance to sign Radamel Falcao in favour of signing Heskey that window!
  4. Finally everyone can stop talking about ex villa players returning
  5. We have a sell on clause if Traore gets sold so an extra few quid in the kitty.
  6. I hope Bacuna leaves this window. He was a disgrace in the Brighton (at home) match when he kept trying to take the free kicks off Hourihane, throwing his toys out of the pram then refusing to take part in any attacks for the last ten mins because of it. I was at the game and watched him do it 3 times, then the last time he bounced the ball on the floor turned and walked back into our half (from just outside the area) and stood there with his back to the action so didnt even watch to see if we scored and carried on doing so even while we took the corner that resulted from the free kick. Not gonna be any harmony amongst the players while he is acting like that. Shame as I liked him before that match but lost all respect for him now.
  7. He is only reportedly signing a one or two year deal (depending on which source we choose to speculate on). The point I was trying to make is that it will be £4M ONLY if we get promoted. In which case, it wouldnt be another £4M next season as we cant get promoted twice. If you can find someone better to help us get promoted for £4M then great, I'm all for it but personally I feel JT would be less of a gamble than someone without his experience or someone from abroad that would need time to settle, get used to the english game, etc.
  8. Regardless of how long his deal is, that is the cost of having him for this (promotion chasing) season
  9. With no transfer fee, £60k p/w plus bonuses for promotion we could end up paying Terry £4M over the year. Lets be honest, who are we gonna get in for that money that will do a better job with less gamble? We could basically buy someone for £2.5M and pay them £30k p/w, Probably without his pedigree/experience. So, those that consider it a gamble not worth taking should have a think about who we could get for £4M (including salary & bonuses) that is less of a gamble and better value for money. Bare in mind that its only actually £4M IF we do get promoted as well. Its not our money, the cost of players these days is insane anyway so forget the finances. Would our squad be better with him in it or not? Of course it would!
  10. Reports are saying £60k p/w but not sure how that is known at this stage. Got to remember there is obviously no transfer fee involved though.
  11. In their defence, the Villa hierarchy have only been here one year!
  12. I thought he'd posted one of Tonys twitter messages!!!
