Well this makes for pleasant reading. Despite some thinking that Milan Baros is looking to leave Villa Park, his agent says the Czech Republic striker is not unhappy.

Macka we may be able to sign some special players in Jan but I think the main strenghening will come in the summer window. IMHO the day MON walked through the gates of our place of worship, it felt like all my christmases had come at once anyway. UTV

I hope MON pounces immediately in January, in time for the big FA Cup tie vs the Mancs!
