Villa Players Incoming In January?

Villa Players Incoming In January?

Martin O'Neill has suggested we'll be getting new arrivals in January as he hopes to soon have a squad big enough to cope with the rigours of the Premiership.

He explained 'We are probably at the stage of our development where we are not able to stand three or four players going out of the side. Luckily, touch wood, that hasn't happened so far but we have eight games to negotiate between now and the new year which is a big ask for us but it is up to us. We will, in the not too distant future, be able to cope with the loss of big players - and I know the players who I would be particularly interested in bringing in.

He also says he hopes that Villa can push on for Europe this season with some crunch games on the horizon:

'We are in the middle of a very important period for us of three successive away games. It is a tough period with Middlesbrough and Blackburn away in the space of four days before we are at home again to Arsenal. This will be a big test for us especially as we have to travel to Middlesbrough on the back of the international fortnight.

No doubt in a week or so I'll add the January transfer window rumour article to the top of the site, in the meantime, the Daily Mail claim we are after Peter Crouch and John Arne Riise from Liverpool, Jermain Defoe from Tottenham (who lets face it is linked every transfer window and if not him, Robbie Keane!) and the link to Porto right-back Jose Boswinga has also re-surfaced. I'll also throw in a link to Bolton striker Nicolas Anelka, why not, everyone else makes them up!!??

I dont know about incoming transfers at Villa Pk but i will say that as for outgoing transfers Garath Barry has blown his dream move to WHL in January with that shambolic performance on wednesday night.You can keep Scott "butter fingers" Carson as well......LOL

We've heard it all before, so excuse me if I dont hold my breath. When they are signed, sealed and delivered, then I'll start believing.

8.5m for Carson, already paid 1.75m, 10m Crouch, get rid of Harewood, If Maloney wants to go let him and then bring in Either Defoe or Anelka, I reckon Riise could be worth a shot if he isnt over 7m and maybe Hoyte if we can tempt him after signing some high profile players.. What do i really think ??? We'll sign some load of crap and sell some players too and at the end of the season we'll hear him moan about our squad was too small that is why we didn't get into Europe :/ Sorry just thought i would glance into my crystal ball.

Well, Villa 4 Ever, all I can say is what miserable balls you've got! i'm still upbeat that MON has come out and said he's staying... the best 'signing' we could possibly ask for!

A couple of right backs and a centre forward would see us good till the summer I reckon.

Rawlie, Don't get me wrong he is a good manager and he will get the job done at Villa, but if he keeps buying the Harewoods and Knights, and selling the Davis's and Ridgewell's then won't be going anyway fast. He need's to change his act in the transfer market and fast, IF he doesn't get a GOOD right back not a decent one, and IF he doesn't gets a GREAT striker like Crouch/Defoe/Anelka/ then we won't be heading for Europe. So far if he signed the loan players we have brought in i have figured he has spent about 51-53million, i know he is tight with his cash but that is stupid money for the players he has brought in.

We should be in a healthy league placing come January 1st, so that in itself, plus the MON factor should certainly help us bring in the type of quality that will see us become a serious contender for UEFA Cup football next season. Think positive.
