Friedel Confirmed, Signed, Sealed and Delivered

Brad Friedel has put pen to paper on the 3 year deal with Villa.

Talks with the player were successfully concluded yesterday, and he becomes the latest (latest of many we hope) additions to Martin O'Neill's squad.

There's no doubt Friedel will be an immense goalkeeper for us, and he certainly help the development of Guzan should he finally arrive and have a positive impact on our back four.

Vital Boxing - Dan Blackwell Retires

Just got back from the game, was nice that he was able to come and say hi to the Villa fans! Listening to Dean Saunders just (recorded the build up to the game, sad really!) he said what a great keeper he is, hardly ever makes a mistake BUT most importantly, speaks to the defenders better than any keeper he's known. Maybe he'll have a good effect on Zat who nearly gave a goal away again today!

Yea, the outcome of the game could have been different if their striker had scored. The lads seemed out of it for a while as well after Bouma's horrific injury! He will prove to be a massive player for the club - great signing!

As i've said before, he was my first choice signing. I know he won't do a Barry and give us 10 years but he's first class. If he was between the sticks for our last season I believe we would have run Liverpool very close for fourth.

Very happy with this signing. Arguably the best goalkeeper in the prem. I believe he will gain us a few more vital points this season, which could make all the difference.

I thought the holte end humour was top drawer when Brad came on to be presented to us at half time. CAN YOU PLAY THE SECOND HALF was the cry from the holte. God knows what Stuart Taylor thought of that.

Indeed 50 years a villan.Taylor did well to-night but it looks like he is surplus to requirements at VP.I'm not sure I know why.

Wekcome to VP, excellent signing, defence can relax a bit and have some confidence in the person between the sticks, Taylor did well tonight, wish him well whatever he decides to do.
