January Transfer Window Talk 4


Our previous January Transfer rumours thread got 219 and 225 comments and are now pretty much full January Transfer Window Talk , January Transfer Window Talk 2 and
January Transfer Window Talk 3
so I've set up this new sticky to continue driving ourselves mad with links and gossip that we all know will probably come to nothing with total surprises arriving instead!

So far we have, amongst others, been linked to:

Goalkeeper: Matt Murray

Defenders: Richard Stearman, Greg Halford - Colchester, Phil Bardsley of Man Utd, Matthew Upson from Small Heath, Curtis Davies from West Bromwich Albion, Portsmouth right-back Andy Griffin, Oldham right-back Neil Eardley. Abel Xavier from Middlesbrough,

Midfielders: Joey Barton of Man City, James Milner of Newcastle, Shaun Wright-Phillips from Chelski, Zoltan Gera from WBA, Reading's Kevin Doyle. Ashley Young from Watford. Barry Ferguson from Rangers, Reo Coker from West Ham.

Strikers: David Nugent from Preston, Jermain Defoe and/or Robbie Keane from Spurs, Darren Bent from Charlton, Sean Maloney from Celtic, Freddy Eastwood from Southend, Kevin Davies from Bolton, Mark Viduka from Boro), Alan Smith from Manchester United, Craig Bellamy (old link from rumour thread), Peter Crouch from Liverpool, James Beattie from Everton, Marlon Harewood from West Ham.

And the list goes on...

So far in: Phil Bardsley, from Manchester United, on loan until the end of the season.

Ashley Young transfer from Watford pending following a verbal agreement.

According to Setanta theres more reports of Petrov begging to go back to Celtic.The little Weasel.Celtic will only offer 3m.
Pking
SSN report Lyon expect to sign Baros within the next 72 hours.
jonah
Would be good to get a statement from the club really on the Petrov situation, is it unfounded talk or is there some truth in it?
The Fear
Maybe its all hot air but these reports wont go away.And setanta are a decent source.
Pking
On skysports website it says that carew is in taks with bremen over a move to germany. the petrov story just might be papers printing the same old stuff, but then a gain there' s no smoke without fire
godworeno5
I agree that its time some sort of official denial (I hope) or confirmation of these recurring Petrov rumours. I find it a bit unsettling that the club hasn't moved to quash them already, so perhaps there is some truth in them.
jonah
I dont see why the club should lose a vast amount of money on this.He should compensate us.How much is he on a week?
Pking
I hope the Petrov story isn't true. He hasn't set Villa Park alight yet but he deserves longer, and so do we.
VillaYamYam
As regards Petrov - we may come to a compromise, it will depend on how much money we've paid them, what wages he wants back at Celtic etc.. Best not to keep unhappy players. Either way I don't think Celtic will want to shaft us.
tarzan
we have a wierd history with eastern european players.... bosko, savo, baros and now possibly petrov. what's the story? and is this why the polish-striker rumour stopped?
leftfoot
I think Celtic would love nothing more than to shaft us over this.Petrov insults the level of Scottish fitba throws a strop,gets a tasty signing on fee,and a handsome wage.Celtic get a great price.A couple of months later he goes straight back.Petrov makes a profit,Celtic make a profit.We have our pockits picked again.I think theres a feeling at Celtic that were poaching there players,Maloney for example and this would be one in the eye for us.If he goes back I hope they offer him a pitance.
Pking
I think we are all forgetting that under EUFA regulations a player can't return to a club within 12 months of leaving them. So, even if Petrov wants to return to Glasgow he can't got to Celtic..and as an ex-Celtic player I can't see Rangers being interested in him. So basically, he's screwed!!
jonah
Aston Villa manager Martin O'Neill is said to be preparing a £1m bid for Hearts midfielder Paul Hartley (Scottish Sun)
DeanoVilla
has there been any mention of what time the AY deal is likely to be completed. usualy they say something on SSN when the player signs (hopefully)
godworeno5
jonah...petrov can return to celtic or any other club for that matter but under the regulations he cannot play for more than two teams in the season so he will be keeping the bench warm until the new season starts.
JASON
This speculation about Petrov, is just that. Just wait and see what the club says.
tarzan
Football is set up with the players having all the power. Petrov is obviously suffering from the pace of the Premiership and playing in a struggling side (of late). He was a big fish up there. We should support him at the moment, before we hear what's going on.
tarzan
Looks like we might be siging "The Hulk" then, aka Carew - anyone know what he's like? Heard he's gone off the boil recently, has he been playing for Lyon?
tarzan
Tarzan - and who at 10am this morning said he was at Bodymoor Heath, i ask ya??
mackaavfc
Baros has signed for Lyon.
mackaavfc
on ssn 5 mins ago that lyon have signed baros with carew apparently in birmingham discussing personal terms for a straight swap.
Belfast Villain
So Baros has gone!!! Reuters and the BBC.
tarzan
mackaavfc. Bet you are glad its not Zamora! Carew looks like a sleeping giant from what I've read. Let's hope Martin can coach out his potential. My main worry would be his fitness. Is he pacey?
tarzan
He's built like brick Dan *Shittu!
tarzan
Yep Jason is right
Christo
yep basically carew is fast,skilful,built like a brick *****house and good in the air,what a signing he would be.dont believe martin would let baros go without getting a natural centre forward in 2 replace him.details of baros deal still very sketchy though with no fee or anything like that being mentioned.
Belfast Villain
So it must be a straight swap for Carew as I have not heard any price mentioned. Carew is actually pretty fast - especially for a guy of his size. But he, like Baros, does not have a good goal scoring record. I saw him against Real Madrid earlier this season in the Champions League and he was unplayable.
joerothuk
Id love us to have a crack at Gareth Bale.
Pking
yep seen that too joerothuk,he was brilliant he tore cannavaro apart which is no mean feat.on sky sports news website now carew is flying in to birmingham now to discuss personal terms,his style would suit premiership down to the ground.why is villa official website so slow if baros has left,must be waiting for carew! and whats keeping ashley young transfer as well,still to be completed.
Belfast Villain
I'd love us to sign Gareth Bale and Ashley Young on the same day! I can see the headlines now..... "Bale and Pace"
DeanoVilla
BBC 2 just reported Baros will move to Lyon tomorrow,deal is done? As for Petrov,weve got the money to leave him playing reserves for rest of contract.He'll be an old man by then and will have missed out on his career potential and that would serve him right. English leagues a bit tough for ya?? He was a shinning star up north-just another lump of coal down here! Just my opinion....... :-|
Dudley_Villa
I must admit I'm getting quite edgy now. I've just seen reports that MON isn't at VP and no news on Young....I suggest we watch Sky...everything seems to go "officially" through them first. Communication should be done when we are 100% sure after the Milner fiasco.
tarzan
Dudley - nor very constructive, he's been injured.
tarzan
tarzan you are not alone,what is keeping young? getting very edgy about it indeed!
Belfast Villain
Tarzan - i think Dudley was refering to the rumours that Petrov has asked to go back to Celtic.
mackaavfc
LADS - DEEEP BREATHS. MON isn't at VP because he is currently where i am right now, Warwick University. He is doing a 2 day course. The OS hinted earlier at a bumper bulletin later on in the day, so i guess when the deal with carew has been finalised, both signings will be announced at the same time. I heard earlier that a press conference will be held later with both players. Hope this is the case.
Its All Over FC
Its All Over FC - finally someone speaks sense! Personally, I'm glad to see the back of Baros.
tarzan
houllier announced carew going in opposite direction in swap for baros in the baros press conference just half hour ago in france,as reported on newsnow.co.uk.
Belfast Villain
i bet villa are annoyed with lyon announcing this deal before our end has been tied up.
Its All Over FC
A club has offered £10m for Bale and you never know it might be us
Christo
that would be amazing but i think he is going to strengthen other positions first. MON said about hendrie actually, we'll see what happens with his future in terms of players coming in. with the way its started today sounds like there's going to be a shedload, considering the one's we've shipped out already.
Its All Over FC
Sky Sports say Press Conference at 6pm. What are they doing on the Official Site ???????
PENFOLD17
If truth be said, Villa are not a big team that is going places, the only reason why ashley young is going to you lot is because your manager and board are stupid enough to pay £10 million for him. And you should forget about Gareth Bale, why would he want to go to villa over Spurs or Man U.
OneAaronLennon
Who'd have thought it in mid-July that we'd be waiting for news on over £15m worth of signings !!!!!
PENFOLD17
I promise I'm not going mad. At 5.40 SSN said Press Conference at 6pm, they haven't mentioned it since !!!
PENFOLD17
PENFOLD its 6.05 and still nothing, whats going on?
mackaavfc
OneAaronLennon. If i had just caught a big, slimey trout fish i'd have slapped you with it !!!
Its All Over FC
OneAaronLEMON - you couldn't afford him apparently so wind ya neck in.
mackaavfc
carew signed
steff_the_villan
where steff where?
mackaavfc
Yellow banner SSN, Carew signed 3 and half year deal !!!!
PENFOLD17
Wahooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
mackaavfc
Official photo of Carew now on OS !! Come On Boys, now we're seeing what Randy's all about.
PENFOLD17
overpriced, overated and crap that Carew ;-)
mackaavfc
Big Bloke, quick and skilful. Has he really signed for uS ??? :)
PENFOLD17
Only Blott on the landscape, why announce Carew at 6.15 in a whirlwind, medical complete and all, and no news on Ashley Young. Am I being too pessimistic?
PENFOLD17
fantastic signing lads,he has all the ingredients to be a top top player in premiership believe me! chuffed to bits, now young please!
Belfast Villain
yes super carew.
CPAVFC
AWESOME SIGNING!!! This guy is exactly what we need. One question though: What about Ashley Young? It's all gone very quiet on that front.
olafthegreat
If petrov goes are we not coverd by the manufacturers guarantee up to 12 months? Celtic can give us nakamora and 3 mill for him the *****s.One arron lemon ur still not the finished article there are two good teams in north london arsenal and arsenal reserves butthead. Young tryin to stroke Watford for £500000 good on him they are wipein our eye for him.baros out carew in couldnt be any worse lenghty contract for a nomad traveller but.think i would have wanted 6 month loan with option to buy.
sk1nner80
hoping young signs. L.Moore, Agbonlahor, Carew and Young!
CPAVFC
All gone eerily quiet on the Young signing tho, ******y!!
jonah
Fair enough, crap milan baros leaves, carew signs, a good signing, but you know as well is i do that youngs heart is at spurs. Could explain why it has all gone so quiet about him
OneAaronLennon
I aint worried bout the transfers. now MON can shape the squad how he wants it. gabby young (hopefully) moore and carew. we will have the quickest attack in the PM. petrov can hopefully feel now that there is some pressure off him to perform so much as there is more squad depth. still need a def and midfielder tho but it will come soon enough. rome was not built in a day gentleman
Eaton_thevillafan
Is One aaron Lennon bored with the Lack of activity at the home of the nearly men? Go away and keep your opinions to yourself, we 're not interested.
PENFOLD17
AaronLEMON - get over yourself. I support Villa, if i was a professional footballer and it was choice to join Villa over Spuds, i would obviously join Villa, however if they did not come in i would obviously sign for the next club showing the most potential. Surely since being at Watford since 10 years old you would argue his heart is there?
mackaavfc
Its obvious Villa have tied the Carew-Baros deal up first. No rush for Young as its a done deal and I would imagine ONeill would like to be present at the press conference. Nice to see a few cockeneys sitting up and seeing Villa will be challenging their clubs for the best players.
tarzansbrother
I must admit i was a Baros fan(always rated him for Liverpool/Czechs/us last season) however we could really have stumbled across a fantastic swap deal here,Carew is basically a rapid-monster and could be perfect in the shape of team MON is building,Young signing tomorrow and think couple more in the bag but reckon we`ll never had heard of them but have been scouted by backroom staff.
ASPINALL
I meant that Young has held out this long because he would prefer to come to spurs over villa, his heart wants to come to spurs. But like i said, Tottenham know how to handle their business and they know how much a player is worth, and I know, just like you do that Ashley Young is not worth £10 million.
OneAaronLennon
Carrick bought for £2.5 million, sold for £18.5 million. Aaron Lennon bought for £1 million, is worth around £20 million, Jermain Defoe bought for £7 million, is worth around £15 million. Need i say more
OneAaronLennon
One LEMON - you may say more, preferably Goodbye.
PENFOLD17
Jermaine Jenas - HOW MUCH, Mido HOW MUCH, Rebrov - HOW MUCH, Zakora - HOW MUCH. There you go muppet some of your duffers listed there for ya. If Curtis Davies is worth £10m (what you are reportedly about to bid with Newcastle) then i think Young is snip.
mackaavfc
A man after my own heart mackavfc :)
PENFOLD17
Angel- HOW MUCH, Baros- HOW MUCH, Petrov- HOW MUCH. Angel must be the worse striker evr to play football on this planet. Remember Villa Park, Angel missed penalty then goes and scores a great own goal.
OneAaronLennon
Lemon - i agree, however im not the one giving it loads on another clubs site am i? It's clowns like you that stop resonable debates taking place. And to be far i dont think even Angel is as bad as Rebrov.
mackaavfc
OneAaronLemon, you are cracking me up mate, no seriously you are... Why come on here spouting your (unwanted) opinions on our transfer policy? The 'value' of a player is not totally down to their skill level, the need of the club buying also has an impact. We all know Villa are in need of adding to the squad in this window, which has led us to paying more than some other clubs may have. At least we haven't gone for the Spuds 'lottery' method of trying to buy every young player going in some hope that one of them will turn out good! Any more comments from you will show how threatened the Spuds are now feeling from the mighty Villa!!!
splatt
Love the way the "Lemon" nickname has taken off. Keep it going boys.
mackaavfc
So you seriously think that if you get Ashley Young he will ever be worth the £10 million that you are going to pay for him. AND BY THE WAY IF YOU EVER HAD AARON LENNON IN YOUR TEAM, EVEN I WILL RESPECT SUCH A GREAT PLAYER. But then again Villa can't attract players of that calibre to your club.
OneAaronLennon
Lemon - you aint that big mate, did Sol Campbell not join a bigger club in Arsenal and Carrick with Man U. Face facts we are on a level playing field now except you are soon gonna be left behind. Anyhow lurcho is no one posting on the Spuds site or something?
mackaavfc
Boothroyd was on Sky going on about how they are gonna spend the transfer money from the Young transfer. I know there was a problem with Young wanting some pay-off for his time at Watford but I heard it was settled. I agree with a post that said this deal looks like it was concluded some days ago, medical and all. Perhaps that was why Baros was so poor the weekend. Didn't want to get injured. It takes a couple of yards off your pace and thinking.
Gazvilla
Get the feelin that the Spurs fan is a bit jealous.
Pking
too right. dude you are just annoyed that you missed out on young
Eaton_thevillafan
Ronlemon, please don't take too much exception to what has been said, but Spurs are as incosistent as ever, Lennon & Huddleston look good players that I agree, Jenas,Dawson,Porky Robinson,Fatty Reid(oh he's gone) Murphy,Davenport (oh he's gone as well), Lee, Zokora, Davids (oh he's gone hasn't he), Mido (was *****e first time around), Ledleys crocked and wants out anyway, Keane (on his way) really things aren't as rosy as you are trying to delude yourself that they are!!!! Are they ?
fatloser
gutted we have to wait two weeks to see our new boys in action looking forward to the 31st so much but imagine what our starting 11 is going to be like for the first game of the new season :) AC Milan FC Barcelona Real Madrid here we come!!!!!
VillaMalta
"AC Milan, Barcelona, Real Madrid here we come". Are you joking, you think cause you got a decent old player that you are gonna be challenging for top 4 spot. FOOL.
OneAaronLennon
And by the way, Ledley and Dawson will easily get into your first team easily, as wood jenas, keane and Zokora. Don't try and start comparing teams because Spurs would beat villa easily!!!
OneAaronLennon
LOL you sad little man AC Milan FC Barcelona Real Madrid Aston Villa Spuds Odd one out??? Jealous mate coz we have a manager who actually knows what he's doing were as yours thought "i know ill just buy everyone going hopefully i'll win something." I'm sure you have better players than us after all the money you've spent but you only just drew with us and beat us 2-1 in a pretty even game and thats before we've spent any money HAHAHAHA Martin O'neill Vs Martin Jol LOLOLOL hahaha sorry i forgot your manager was linked with being the future Manager of Manure LOL OOOps No that was ours coz yours is S$£T!!!!
VillaMalta
So come on then lemon the only reason u get anyone worth lookin at is ur location,and even then anygood players you have clear off the first chance they get.What was the last trophy u ladies won? you have had ur cash injection when you snapped up anything moving(good business) but nothing materialised.Pushed the Arse close last seson then cried foul play ,food posioning, all that was found were sour grapes and hard cheese.dont hate us cause its our turn to have a pop at cracking the top 4.We know its not going to happen this season but watch this space.
sk1nner80
OneAaronLennon - what you gonna' do when Jol sells Lennon to some bigger club like Villa?
villacross
dont listen to one lemmon he is like all spuds sad and dillusional,you forget to mention that villa have actually played and won the big european cup,so in my opinion you have more chance to get in the champs league than those boys at s hite fart lame,and you are still a bigger club than dithering trots spuds
fran merida
let's back on track boys...who we gonna sign next?
jonah
The planet is in a delicate balance. For every clever thing that happens something really dumb happens elsewhere. At 6.15 Martin O'Neill decides to buy Carew and Young. He gets a great deal on Transfers and Purchases until 2011. This is really, really clever. And at exactly the same time, a Tottenham fan comes on the Villa website and spouts 5hit - oohh, the clever-dumb balance is restored... Be clever, be a Villa fan.
eltoro
Quick medical for Carew - why so long with Young?
deano.avfc
eltoro: GOOD stuff!!
jonah
I think Spurs want Bale, but may get trumped by Man U or Chelski. We may sign another midfielder. Who?
tarzan
Lee Cooke please. Where's that hairylemon dude gone - he makes me laugh...never see him larging it with the top four...strange that....I would have King and Keane off him though.
koolbill
To be fair Spurs would have qualified for the CL but they all happened to get food poisining remember.And I would have been Chess world champion but I just happened to never learn how to play chess.Also we never had a player called Ricky Spurs.
Pking
think we may get a few more surprises before next week tarzans broy thinks sidwell and gera are targets, if eiher arrive hendrie is out and if both come i imagine burger will hit the road too.Would welcome a few more bods in that can add depth and that should tie us over untill summer when martin can really move for his targets.Layton Baines anyone?
sk1nner80
How would that add to extra bodies... 2 in 2 out?
Hoss The Villain
i think hendrie's played his last game, i read he insulted a disabled fan at the man utd game. he's such a _______ (fill in as you see appropriate)
bobbyfett
it aint over yet. well will young put pen to paper and sign? any news any one? that polish striker has not come to villa then :-(
Eaton_thevillafan
whoever posted the link to newsnow (tranfer window 2 thread, i think) i would like to thank you and curse you at the same time as i am now addicted to it, and have resorted to checking 5mins. its like watching a kettle boil,
godworeno5
its all about mental will power godworeno5, as i check it every 10 mins:P
Its All Over FC
So where will Young play, as striker or winger? Or will Gabby go back to the wing, with Carew, Moore and (at least till seasons end) Angel up front? LOL I also love the Lemon nick name...go pull yourself Lemon
AussieVilla
Godworeno5 - glad to be of service.
mackaavfc
lol i'll do my best, but it'll be hard, don't want withdrawal symptoms lol ;)
godworeno5
anyone know why young is taking so long? Mr Fear - any inside knowledge? does seem strange as agreed terms on sunday?
tylervilla
Mackaavfc - have to admit it has been a god send and cut all my browsing out,
godworeno5
Any update on young Ashley? Good news about Petrov today too.
tarzan
6m for Upson not acceptable! It puts our "deal or no deal" in perspective. Good for Blues rejecting it, I bet you Upson's agent is spitting feathers. I have no idea who our next target is.
tarzan
what the bloody hell is going on with Ashley Young?
jonah
Perhaps MON is busy sorting another one and hasn't had time to do the Conference?
PENFOLD17
Regarding formations, didn't MON say he wanted to give Gabby a rest? Don't know if we have that luxery yet. Young is a strange one? Boothroyd is planning to spend the money but no press announcement yet. I did say on an earlier post that Young was in dispute with Watford regarding severance pay.
Gazvilla
Come on Mon. Pull your finger out, who's next? :-)
Gazvilla
lets hope that's all it is gaz. I heard that too, but thought he had sorted it out yesterday.
jonah
Also MON is on a TWO day course down at Warwick uni. This being the second day. Can't see that would be a problem for the club though??? On a linked player - Boro are in for Gera at the moment. No one is mentioning Richardson of ManU. An England international who has been told he can go. Anyone fancy him? (in the strictest footballing sense)
Gazvilla
Richardson noooooo!! He's not liked at all, or rated by the Man U fans! My Manu mate stopped going when he saw his Bentley in the car park. A big time Charlie if ever there was one, I am sure Sir Alex would accept bids over 5m fir him (has DJ twin nightmare written all over it).
tarzan
Richardson? left and center midfield? in claret and blue? sounds like a plan! 5 mil to manure and hopefully he would sign!
Eaton_thevillafan
On the Gera theme, don't know that much about him, probably a case of West Brom selling to the highest bidder, so will go down to the wire, unless they have a replacement lined up - Lee Hendrie anyone?
tarzan
noooooo he reminds me of a dj-dj rarely played 4 man utd and was sold
Newman
Knowing what I've heard about Richardson, I don't think we'd meet his wage demands (I'm being serious). The guy thinks he's the bees knees. Maybe worth asking some Baggies fans about him?
tarzan
It has gone 5pm and still no news on Ashley Young, thought it was supposed to be completed by sunday afternoon. He can go to you lot for £10 million anyway, its just funny that he is still holding out for Spurs, the lad sees sense.
OneAaronLennon
You should be on the stage!! Robbo has looked well dodgy in the nets recently at fault for all Newcastles goals.
tarzan
Do you own a pearly jacket?
tarzan
Young has now signed so up yours mr tottenham nobody!!
Rickymeister
spurs aint sumped up the cash. they did when it came to rebrov tho. come to mention it chris armstrong was another. one lemon is it important to you to come on here and talk total s.h.i.t to all of us or do you sectely admire villa? go away your village needs their resident idiot.
Eaton_thevillafan
And forget about Gareth Bale, he is going to Spurs or Man U. For some reason Villa think they are a big club who can attract top quality players, but you're not and never will be, face it. You say you're a bigger club than spurs yet we are 9th in the premiership(you are 14th), we are in the FA cup, we are in the semi's of the carling cup(you're not), and we in Europe(and again, you're not).
OneAaronLennon
yesssssss
CPAVFC
its but time o and we have signd top quality playrs carew???? petrov??? baros(did good in 2004)???young???need i say moore
Newman
oneaaronlennon **** off. One Ashley Young
CPAVFC
funny you say that but thats all? one you are not chelski nor gunners who own 2 of the 4 champ leauge places. bale will go to man u and did what rooney did at 18. forget spurs cos u aint a big club neither. question how may times do you think spurs have finished above villa in the past 10 years and how many cups have you won since 1990 onwards apart from one? BTW the gooners are gonna flush you in the cup so better make that comps you are still in. sorry lemon but stop kidding urself.
Eaton_thevillafan
we will beat u next season when we ave even more star players!
Newman
Right then who shall we buy next - Aaron Lennon anyone ;-)
mackaavfc
Nah sod it, just get Randy to buy s.h.i.t.e. h.a.r.t. l.a.n.e and sell it to Tesco's. (apologies for having to put the words in with full stops but I'm under the impression they are all expletives, not just the first one)! Tesco's would make more use of the place and you could get more clubcard points than the low life yids will pick up for the rest of the campaign.
Godsvilla
we should now buy anthong van borre and bains as 2 atacking ful backs with the like of kalstrom in midfild to replace the out going hendrie
Newman
screw lemom head . we have just signed young. pretty chuffed. wonder who is next? upson? bent i think is out of the question but neca mind. id take tainio off spurs hands providing he can stay fit but seems unlikely. kallstrom or richardson as he is left footed i believe. still a week or so to go.
Eaton_thevillafan
3 good signings and I'm positive he ain't finished yet. He's clearly looking at midfield players and who knows what else. Plenty of secret stuff going on, just look at the Carew transfer. Nobody clocked he had a medical. Hopped on a plane and straight into the team!
Gazvilla
Did anyone see the MOTD interview with MON. He started to tell the interviewer that he needed to bolster his team with some experience to give the wee kids some help, and then realised he's signing a 20 year old Young. He starts laughing saying he hasn't got a clue what he's doing. Classic!
Gazvilla
I thought that it was amusing but of course unlike you and I he knew about Carew and if we had known then his answer would have made sense.
pongo wearing
Just manged to get my login 4 vital been killing me hearing that yid tw*t dribble on, cant wait 4 the newcastle match got a good feeling about carew, hope the blue noses come up so the boyz can spank them back down VILLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
True Villian
Pongo - agreed. The Polish striker Matusiak doesn't want to come to England and is signing for Palermo this weekend.
Gazvilla
True Villian, as you call yourself, you just represent how every villa fan is, STUPID. You can't even spell Villain right, it is spelt VILLAIN, not VILLIAN
OneAaronLennon
one for all you villa fans who want to see a world class player in action, watch this http://youtube.com/watch?v=EVoF4tKrMcc
OneAaronLennon
Richardson of Man.U. at £5mill would be a "snip". Why shouldn't he have a Bentley. Wouldn't you buy one if you were earning over £1mill net of tax every year?
villacross
Tottenham chump - rod-off mate as you seem obsessed with the Villa and it`s really unattractive now - liked your Vid but where are his goals ??? Face it matey,you couldn`t even afford to get Rasiak back now you`ve done yer dough and he`s a true Spurs player.
ASPINALL
OAL - have you got a shaven eyebrow?
tarzan
What do you mean where are his goals, 2 goals last season, 3 already this season. And if we don't have any money, where do you think we are getting the money to fund the move for £10 million Gareth Bale???
OneAaronLennon
Gareth Hale is going to you - you know the great comedian
tarzan
ok he wont be at spurs for much longer. thats about the best thing going for spurs. and ive noiced over the past few years that you have bought all ov your youth in. young is the youngest player we have bought in a long time. pls leave this chat room as nothing in here concerns you. and you still have not said why you are here? simply put WE ARE ALL VILLA FANS. WE DONT GIVE A ***** ABOUT SPURS!
Eaton_thevillafan
You`re potless my man that`s why you had to sell Carrick,if you buy Bale for 10m then that`s Jols death-warrant,he`s too fat to be a Manager anyhoo.
ASPINALL
OneAaronLennon please f#ck off back to your own site.You really are *****ed off by us signing players get over it.Relax yez dont have to play Arsenal for a while yet.
Tallaght Villan
Think about it, we bought Carrick for £2.5 million, he helped us get into Europe for the 1st time in years and we moved him on for £18.5 million, 7 times what we bought for. And also, we have a ready made replacement in Tom Huddlestone.
OneAaronLennon
Does he not have a Chaz n Dave record signing to go to.
Pking
That had more to do with Ferguson losing the plot.You really are proud of selling Carrick.Is the teams best best achievment?
Pking
Ok OAL - we`re not Blues fans so i guess we can have reasonable debate,you did do well on the old Carrick buy and sell but just when you come on then don`t make out all is rosy cuz we know deep down you Spurs fans ****** like hell
ASPINALL
why the hell is a spud doin on our site n why am we wasting time talking about them, now its time for villa we are getting dusting the old villa image off. we are now a big club, bigger then spurs
meakers
No we are not proud about selling Carrick, because it has really affected Spurs in a bad way, BUT, if man uinted offer £18.5 million for a player, it will be very hard to turn down. And he already made it clear that he wants to go to man u
OneAaronLennon
OneAaronLennon - I've just realised that you're Doug Ellis in "drag". Why didn't you tell us? I "twigged" it because I can't think of anyone else who would be so paranoid about Villa spending almost £10mill for a 20-year old footballer. The other thing that's probably upset you Doug is that you will know that he's being paid much, much more than you paid the “kids” in your day. Never mind enjoy your retirement; and get to bed, it’s now past 10 pm. Good-night and god-bless.

Blackburn Rovers are to make a £1million bid for Aston Villa midfielder Lee Hendrie - (Daily Star)
villacross
hahaha has anyone seen the poll on the yids website lemon has suggested bringing in our captain fantastic to sort out their left side of midfield lemon head i see we're stupid for paying ten million for a 21 yr old future superstar while you've bid 10mill for a 17 yr old kid who will probably move on when he's old enough to know better like most of your players do
VillaMalta
OAL: pi*s off back to ur own forum c*ck, although cant blame u i would rather stab me eyes alnight than chat to a bunch of second rate londoners come on the gooners
Kernow Carew
do you realise how stupid you sound VillaMalta, all you villa fans are telling me to go my clubs own site yet you go onto a different clubs sight, FOOL. And by the way, Gareth Bale, 1st team for southampton, 1st team for the senior welsh side and only 17. Ashley Young, competing for a place at Villa, England U21, and 21. I think i see a difference, dont you.
OneAaronLennon
What's that coming over the hill... is it Car-ew, is it Car-ew!
Gazvilla
He's here, he's there, he's every ********* where, Ashley Young, Ashley Young!
Gazvilla
Oh yeah, Villa fans, remember about 2 months ago when Defoe put you lot down singlehandedly.
OneAaronLennon
I must intercede here. Might I suggest that we ignore the 12 year old OneAaronLemon. He may then go away. Anybody that has this much time to bait a rival team really isn't worth the hassle. Time will tell, and maybe he'll come back when MON has rebuilt the team. Right now we are recovering from decades of neglect and do have some catching up to do and have begun the process well. Just one point - Mark Delaney was a Star Player of the Welsh National Side for many years - is this really your benchmark?
CLVilla
Put us down where? Idiot! Was it not u making the point that young has only been good in the championship and that we are paying way over the odds for an un proven prem player. Bale 1st team southampton(championship)1st team Wales and only 17(wales are the worst british ranked team, would he get in the england team,nah)and you want to splash out 10 mill on him? go for it you are takin the same risk we have wit young so stop your wingein and get over the fact we got him.You muppet
sk1nner80
Nah the yid scum makes me laugh, he's delluded and it's pretty funny. On the one hand he takes the mick out of us for spending £9 million on a player that 'want's to go to Spurs' but didn't and on the other hand he lauds his own team spending £10m on an unknown Championship player who is going to Man Utd anyway. Spurs may have beat us 2 months ago, but even with half our squad we almost managed to nick a draw which just goes to show how cack Spurs are. The fact that Aidy Boothroyd came out and said that Young was better off for chosing Villa over Spurs speaks volumes about us compared to our supposed better rivals....
Thegreatdando
i don't want him for spurs, and if you read everything that is on the spurs vital football then you would see that no spurs fan does want him. If Young come to Spurs he wouldn't get into the first team.
OneAaronLennon
oh and enjoy your Carling Cup semi....I imagine the real team in North London will show you where you belong......
Thegreatdando
If no Spurs fans want him then why are you here? Maybe you should be on Vital Man Utd telling them how Gareth Bale want's to be a Spur because it was his lifelong dream...and how he can take his place alongside Mark Delaney as Welsh Star Player of the Year.
Thegreatdando
I'm not saying Young is a crap player, he is actually a good young player with bags of potential, however, what i am saying is that he is simply not worth £10 million. OneAaronLennon But Gareth Bale is, and no Spurs fans want good young players with bags of potential.....
Thegreatdando
Since when have Spurs been our 'better' rivals dando? In the minds of a few deluded spurs fans maybe, but like I told 'em on their site the other day 'we have won more in the past than you, we will win more in the future than you, the future is claret and blue...get over it!!'
jonah
Did you know ONELEMON hardly posts on the Spuds website? We should obviously take a leaf out of their book and ignore the little tw*t.
mackaavfc
OneAaron why not just buy a Villa shirt and Join the Revolution.
col8
Ignoring the cockjockerneys for a second here....any rumours on more recruits before the window shuts?
tylervilla
O Neil says hes looking for more players.Happy Days.
Pking
OneArronLemon... do you not have any friends? Are you feeling so insecure about your clubs dim future that you must attempt to berate others? Fine, but allow me to retort... Simply put, Arsenal have been p*ssing in your face for years and will continue to for the forseeable future. For the money your club has spent you ARE SIMPLY NOT GOOD ENOUGH. You've had some luck with that Bye into the last 16 of the UEFA, but its as far as you'll go. We were big once and will be again. You have never even been the biggest club in london, so you have no claim to be better than the Villa. Take a good look at your underacheiving little club, without the spuds tinted glasses and obtain a reality check for yourself, your whining is pathetic.
The Usual Suspect
good look tonight, you'll fecking need it
The Usual Suspect
I will Pking duck and chicken fried rice to that. If they keep coming in at this quality I dont think i will be responsible for my over happy demeanour and permanent smile.
tylervilla
Would you tottenham fools get lost, we got Young, you didnt. And fighting over a forum is the ******iest way of arguing. Go ****** on your own forum
AussieVilla
Don't worry about it, the only argument lemon has put forward so far is that Spurs know how to buy young players at a cheap price and then sell them on to bigger clubs at a huge profit. If that is the ambition of Spuds fans then I for one am happy for them.
Hoss The Villain
\o/ \o/ MON's Young Carew \o/\o/ the revolution starts here.......
godworeno5
planetfootball are running some quotes from baros, apparently he didnt go to chelski because SWP didnt want to go to villa in exchange and he didnt like being at villa because we nearly got relegated and we are near relegation again! congrats lyon you have bought an egotistical back stabber!
tylervilla
Baros makes me laugh.. why did he leave liverpool then? was it because he wasn't pulling his weight there either, and was duly sold? He's not quite the player he thinks he is, and lacks any kind of commitment or notion of teamwork. I'm glad he's gone.
The Usual Suspect
Baros - I can't believe he's said what he has, but that's players nowadays. He is a clueless idiot, I am so happy with our swap deal. I liked him as player and was willing to give him the benefit of the doubt, when at the time my scouse mates said he was trouble. It looks like Chelsea have got off lightly here, I don't think SWP was ever going to come to us. He's on 65k per week and playing for one of the big 4 with a chance of winning four trophies.
tarzan
I bet Martin couldn't have waited to see the back of him. Mourhino has gone down in my esimation for wanting him at Chelski - but Villa may have wanted a permanent deal as opposed to loans in both directions.
tarzan
What constitutes tapping up?
tarzan
Isn't what Baros said old news? His agent filled the papers with all that stuff 2 weeks ago. Its a 'nothing' story if you ask me.
jonah
True enough Jonah, So many things are happening at the moment. Not sure in the details of the story anyway as I think as a) SWP is not a striker and b) SWP is at a top 4 club going for 4 cups - he is bound to get some playing time.
tarzan
does anyone know what numbers carew and young will be wearing.
CPAVFC
You would assume that Carew would get 10 from Baros, dunno about Young tho, what number did Whittingham have?
jonah
Carew 10 and Young 14
Miss_Aston
well there you go, thanks
jonah
It's ok, I wondered it myself so I spent all day trying to find out!
Miss_Aston
Can everyone stop responding to "onelemon" or "Doug Ellis in Drag", (who I truly I suspect he is). He might then get the message then and "*****-off" and haunt some other site.
villacross
I'm not haunting you lot, i just come on here and said what i thought, i didn't say villa are crap because they're not, but just to debate. However, i couldn't because you villa fans took it as a personal dig at your club. I am not that sad to come on here and wind you lot up, if i wanted to do that i would go on the arsenal site.
OneAaronLennon
i thought young would have number 17
meakers
So did I but it turns out he's got DJDJ's number instead
Miss_Aston
villacross, give him a break, he's just having a laugh and has actually made a fairly constructive comment on the other thread! I'd rather be mixing it up with Spurs (who are a progressive club in my opinion) rather than Boro, Sheff Utd, Bolton etc. Last year we were a shambles and to be honest I was wishing we were signing some decent players like they were. OAL - who are you in for apart from Bale?
tarzan
oh how did you find out that, i thought if a player is registered with a number they keep it unless transfered. What happens if we bring DJDJ back?
meakers
Any more links today apart from Sidwell. Good to have another Sid in the mid
tarzan
OAL - match prediction for tonight? i have money on Arsenal!
The Usual Suspect
meakers don't give me double nightmares
tarzan
lol tarzan , i hope he doesnt come back but it could happen , we should sign bale? anyone else agree
meakers
Bale eh? Just imagine OAL's reaction to that one. I've already asked him for a prediction. Which Tottingham will turn up tonight?
tarzan
SID - WELL?
tarzan
I won't suggest Zamora again!
tarzan
Maybe meakers they are trying to tell Djemba something i.e. don't come back. The Express & Star are linking us with Claudio Reyna but it is so vague and has no real substance it seems.
pongo wearing
I also see a rumour that Blackburn might want to give us £1 million for Hendrie............................. please!
pongo wearing
well right now it seems as if Spurs are linked with 10 new players everyday, i would like to see gamst pederson in a spurs shirt though. Moving onto predictions, i say spurs will be up for this one and think that we will beat the Arsenal kids 2-0. Anyway, i'm off the match.
OneAaronLennon
In the perfect world we'd sign a wide-right player, and a creative midfielder before the January window closes. Still a week left to continue the rebuilding work, then we can all sit back, take a well deserved break from discussing transfer targets, until the summer arrives. Been fun though so far hasn't it?
glensider
Certainly has been fun. I'd go for Sidwell. I think Petrov will shine when fit. He's after a baggies player - Davis or Gera?
tarzan
arsenal will play thre reservs and youth angainst spurs so that means an arsenal win also will will sign cisse and a midfield playr
Newman
I like Gamst Pederson too, airy lemon. Maybe as Blackburn are supposedly keen on Hendrie we might be lining up a straight swap deal.
pongo wearing
And Tarzan i will laugh again - ZAMORA HA HA HA HA
mackaavfc
Reyna joining some American team. With Berger showing some form it looks like the Gera deal may be left until summer if he doesnt move to another club. Sidwell is the obvious choice but requires him asking to leave Reading. Milner still hasnt signed a new deal with Newcastle so may be another option. Midfield will be the place ONeill will want to improve.
