So Who Will Villa Sign? - Part 10!

So Who Will Villa Sign? - Part 10!

The tenth and I would think final instalment of our summer long gossip column!

We've already had nearly 3 million (ahem) rumours, arguments and links!

So Who Will Villa Sign Pt 9 - Click Here

Getting a bit depressing all this talk and not being able to update the threads with new players. Lets hope by the 10th the 'in' column will exceed the 'out'! We need at least one big name to put down a marker for the season surely?

Anyway, here continues the rumours thread on the front page. See a story linking us with a player? Share it with us all. Heard a tenuous link, or seen a player around Villa Park? Let us know! Oh, and although I'll do my best to announce incoming players as soon as possible, if you hear of a signing before I do, wang it on this thread as well.

The January thread ended up with nearly 2000 article comments, spaced over several articles. This summer one so far has over 3500 comments!

So Far.

Out:

Jlloyd Samuel
Gavin McCann
Lee Hendrie
Robert Olejnik
Stephen Henderson
Aaron Hughes
Steven Davis
Chris Sutton (retirment due to eye damage)
The Djemba Twins

In:

Nigel Reo-Coker from West Ham £8.5m.
Marlon Harewood, from West Ham for around £3.7million.

Eric Lichaj
Harry Forrester
Scott Carson (season long loan from Liverpool)
Jonathan Fear (left back in the changing room)
PLUS? Surely they'll be one or two more!?

I can't believe it, 10 threads with 400 comments each, and still only two real purchases! Maybe 10th time lucky?

2 and a half weeks to go. Be lucky to get 1 in that time going by O'Neills timings so far.

Dean you really are down in the dumps mate. I think the problem mainy lies with the agents and not O'neil. Also perhaps he should leave the negotiations to the lawyers and business people. I'm concerned this will get us sidetracked from a tough start (fixture wise) to the season. We must secure the services of a rb and another player asap - but that may mean "Harewood" quality.

the human mind remains a wanton story teller, a profligate seeker after pattern. but the reality is, we will sign some 'kin players.

I'm just not into paying top dollar for mediocrity. There's not many players out there I thought we should have signed. I'm confused at what our scouts are up to though.
