'If It's Football, It's Vital'

The Villa Times - 29/08/2006

Unoial Villa News...




Sheffield United midfielder Phil Jagielka is once again being linked to Aston Villa. DOL also targeted the United player last season but nothing came of it.

Unconfirmed reports are suggesting that Villa have agreed to pay 8million for Celtic's Bulgarian international Stilian Petrov.

The Sunday Mercury claimed: 'Randy Lerner is putting together an incredible 100 million sponsorship deal aimed at providing Aston Villa with a core transfer budget for the next decade.' and is also looking at boosting Villa's profile worldwide.

Former Villa right back Ulises De La Cruz has joined the Reading on a free transfer after leaving Villa Park at the end of last season. The 32-year-old Ecuador international has signed a one year deal with the club.

Scunthorpe United's manager Brian Laws says their second round Carling Cup game against Aston Villa is 'the pick of the round' and should be on tv.

Gareth Barry has admitted he would have left if David O'Leary had stayed and says O'Neill is 'like a breath of fresh air' adding "I can`t remember so many positive vibes, certainly not in the last four or five years. Full article: Click Here

Martin O'Neill is frustrated that the transfer window is about to close but is looking for potential re-enforcements. Full article: Click Here

Vital Villa asked if Randy Lerner will be a hit, 90% said yes, 5% said who cares as long as Doug is gone, 2% are undecided and 3% predict a miss.

I hope the jagielka link is just paper talk as DOL was always linked with him because we should be looking to bring in much , much better quality players than jagielka....!

In the poll, who is Steven Taylor? We have a second keeper called Stuart. Are they related?

I know I am an uninformed old fart but I have just seen the report on the 'Clubcall' site that Villa are targeting a French international, Sidney Govou. Reportedly a right midfield or striker. What are the opinions of fellow Villians about this guy?

Not a solitary negative comment in the above article, yet plenty of positives. Things are very definitely taking a turn for the better down B6 way.

According to radio WM we are likely to sign 3 players before midnight on Thursday. Petrov is sure to be one but anyone care to guess at the other 2?

I walk in minefields! Wouldn't you know - linked with everyone. I still reckon Denis Mortimers beard was the great Villa beard of all time any advance on that?
