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.

Lee Hendrie

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.

0 cant blame the agents...did all those players sven sign have no agents....or the pompey signings....or the man ure signings.......come on mate there can be no excuses
13/08/2007 20:51:00
Come on Mr O'Neill - pay the men the cash they want for the players you want. Please.

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.
13/08/2007 21:20:00
Oh yes the whole SWP discussion on these threads - why the hell would he join us???
13/08/2007 21:21:00
On his head be it.
