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.

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....!

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?
