The Villa Transfer Thread - Part 4

The Villa Transfer Thread - Part 4

Thread four on summer transfers, so over 1000 comments so far and no signings!

Not to mention nearly 65 pages in the forum! Click Here

I am however positive in the next few weeks that signings will start to be made. Reason 1) July see's the return of many players from their holidays + to pre-season training. 2) Contracts and bonuses are usually paid by July 1st. 3) I'm off on holiday. I spend all my waking hours on this site talking about rumours, when all the real fun happens I'm never around! :o)

Next few weeks, guarantee some players coming in. If there are no signings by the time I return from hols on July 8 I'll eat my .... actually, not right to be too confident, so I'll go with eating my tea!

Lol I thought that when you started thread 3, I suggest a poll how many players will we sign by the end of thread 4 !! I will boldly go for 3 Robbo,Sidwell,Milner and a fancy fullback

Vital Villa Transfer Threads 4 - 0 Mr O'Neills Transfers in ________________________________________________________ ______ It would appear that we've taken an unassailable lead in the race, and Mr O'Neill is disappearing into the distance. With only a Davies on the cards, things are looking ominous for Mr O'Neill in the race to defeat the Vital Villa transfer speculators!

Yay, I make it near the top... I have to say as much as I have enjoyed MON making Alan Hansen look like ***** on the telly, I really wish we had signed as many players as Spurs... In fact I wouldn't mind having those actual players. At least Man City look like they are going to spend the summer chasing ghosts and not realistic signings. Not sure about the Ferdinand link? Be interesting to know what hammers fans think.

lol, Fear maybe you should take a holiday before July 1st, you miss out on all the exitement lol. There will definately be players coming in very very soon. As i mentioned on the previous thread, Villa are due back from preseason on the 1st/2nd July and the first preseason friendly is on the 12th. So by the end of the first week we can expect 3-4 signings. A GK, RB, CB and CM. That will give them a week to prepare before the first game with FC Zurich. The wait is nearly over :)

Oh my god, the pessimissm! Maybe we all need shooting.
28/06/2008 14:31:00
We all need cheering up, come on we need players in and ready for the Intertoto!!!!!!
28/06/2008 14:57:00
It's so nerve-racking waiting! but we must trust in MON, I'm sure he's got it all in hand, I'd rather wait for quality than fill the squad quickly with average players.
