Another Link Bites The Dust

Another Link Bites The Dust

Talk 107 fm claim that 'supposed' Villa target Craig Gordon has signed for Sunderland.

The forum is full of arguments about us missing out on the Hearts goalkeeper but to be fair, none of us know whether he was actually a target or not, the press have told us he was but no quotes have come from the manager.

Must admit I thought we'd do well to get him, he seems a quality keeper BUT I do prove on a regular basis that I know nothing about football! ;-)

The report says he has agreed a five year deal with the Black Cats with a £7million price tag + up to £2million of add ons making him the most expensive British goalkeeper ever.

Meanwhile, the Villa fans (and by the looks of it some of the players) frustrations continue, plenty of links, not so many arrivals.

I can't confirm the rumour, mainly because I've only just made it up, but I believe Villa fans are planning a new anthem for Villa Park - Another Link Bites The Dust - not sure who is going to do the Freddy Mercury styled vocals though!

Another link bites the dust, and another one gone and another one gone, another link bites the dust.

I think we've all been "suckered" by this one. I could not see him coming as a number 2 to Sorenson (he wants regular Prem. competition) and MON recently stated that he wants to extend Sorenson's contract next year. So whilst Sunderland were after him we'd got little chance of signing him.
