Villa Manager With Eye On Transfers

Villa Manager With Eye On Transfers

Martin O'Neill is frustrated that the funds might not be there in time for him to make any real impact in the transfer market but also says they are doing what they can.

Reports are suggesting we are about to sign Celtic midfielder Stilian Petrov and that rumour has grown since Celtic bought Thomas Gravesen.

O'Neill said: 'It is depressing that we have only three days to go, but we will try and do something about it, definitely. The players at the football club need a bit of help. It would be really important for us to get some people in. I know that, I don't need people to keep reminding me about the deadline. It is really important.'

Adding: 'In terms of the football club itself, it would be nice but if it doesn't materialise, and I'm not putting a dampener on it - far from it - we will still try and bring some people in, even if they end up being loans. We will try and do something because we need the squad bolstering.'

He also explained that he didn't want to let Kevin Phillips go but Super Kev was keen to move to get more games.

i agree if he is not fit enough for his club he should not be fit for selection for country. What is going on with Berger no one has gave us an update on his fitness.

Baros isnt in the Czech squad. And as long as we keep playin the way we have been, we should be able to hold out till the January window without any new signings. But if we can add to an already very good team, imagine what can unfold

I got Baros' autograph before the Reading match. I was going to question him whether he was staying at VP or moving on. Thing is, his Czech supermodel girlfriend was with him and I spent so much time taking photos of her I forgot to ask!

Apart from Petrov the newspapers don't seem to have even rumours of Villa signings, so if he has any lined up he is certainly keeping them well concealed.

Baros started training with Villa again last week. Will be good for him to get some match fitness under his belt with the Czechs in my opinion.

signings would be good but it looks like we will be ok between now and christmas after a good start.
