Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear.
The transfer gossip for today?
According to The Times, Aston Villa have narrowed down the choices for full-back to the much linked Justin Hoyte of Arsenal - often muted as part payment towards a Gareth Barry transfer.
The recent link to Middlesbrough's Luke Young... hmmm, not sure on that one!
OR Paulo Ferreira of Chelsea.
And that, is that. Even the papers have given up on us signing anyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Come on Martin, the doom and gloom in the forums, the pubs and places of work is unbearable and fingers are wrongly pointing at the board as well. There must be ONE player at least we could buy in the next day or so...!?
Oh, and the press have picked up on the comments by The General that Randy has the money there and will back the manager. He used £30m as an example and now the press are full of Randy is looking to bring in £30m players. Maybe we should go for David Villa?!?!
As we mentioned yesterday, General Charles Krulak said (not sure if this was on our forum, Villa Talk or H&V and typically, the press don't quote the source, despite moaning at us if we ever don't:
'If Martin O’Neill came to Randy and said, ‘I need £30m for player X’, and the player would fit into what we are trying to do, Randy would have his chequebook out before Martin could get past the player’s name. Additionally, he will be equally ready to fund the other players that Martin says he needs. Randy has never said no to Martin.'
'Randy is no Roman Abramovich, but he does have a wallet and he will open it. Martin knows that. Randy has made it perfectly clear we do not have to sell a player to buy a player. 'Randy is in it for the long term. He wants Europe, he wants winning football. He wants entertainment for the fans.'
'This is more than a business to him. Villa is a passion.'
