Vital Villa asked what sort of buyer you would like at the club. No shocks that 49% said a Russian quadzillionaire! 29% said they didn't care what sort of new owner we got as long as Doug goes! 14% wanted a consortium of businessmen meaning only 8% were looking at a fan led investment vehicle.

Milan Baros will be sold for less than the £18million get out clause according to reports. Other players linked with a Villa Park exit are: Juan Pablo Angel, Lee Hendrie, Jlloyd Samuel, Eric Djemba-Djemba, Mathieu Berson and Peter Whittingham. Olof Mellberg and Mark Delaney are also mentioned in reports and Ulises de la Cruz has already been released. Full article: Click Here

Stephen Cooke. Now there was one talented youngster. Like Stefan Moore, I believed from the first time I saw them both in the youth team, that they both were guaranteed stars of the future. How wrong I was.
