The Villa Transfer Thread - Part 5

Thread five on summer transfers, so over 1400 comments so far and no signings!

Not to mention 82 pages in the forum! Click Here

Still, ever the optimist, we'll sign a few in the next week or so... won't we?!

A quote from the General (from the forum thread) "I can assure everyone that MON is working the transfer window hard. If one of our "targets" does not come to Villa it will NOT be for lack of 1) money or 2) effort. I fully recognize that with the window open it is important to have some players come thru that window...and MON recognizes that fact to. I am not involved in Players and in the Transfer window but I do know that Randy is prepared to support MON...and has yet to turn him down."

Heres hoping that we wont have to fill this one up talking who may be comin in...Now that everything is out of the way and players are back in training hopefully some big moves will be made to get players in. Sidwell 1st then just like donimoes others will follow... (fingers crossed!!!)

Does anyone know what next years Keeper top is going to look like? I'm guessing Taylor was busy on Monday so couldn't be at the Kit launch! Maybe we will only see the new shirt when we have a new keeper come in and hold it up for the Cameras!
