Quite a Refreshing change!
Does anyone else feel the same as me when you look at the players linked with the Villa and think 'we COULD actually sign them????'
As everyone would have read through the transfer threads on this site and the official site as well we have been linked with an enormous amount of players, some good, some bad but its quite amazing the turn around in fortunes that has come full circle at Villa Park.
I know as much as anyone, if David Villa comes on the market and wants to come to the premier league, Villa Park isn't going to be his preferred destination (at the moment) but (and it's a big but) if we can pull off the same sort of attacking, entertaining football that we shown last year and finish in and around the top 6 then players will realise that we can start to compete with the big boys of the league and WE ARE starting to compete with the big boys.
The teams around us must be taking note of proceedings at VP and the signings were making, already seen fans tipping us for a top 6 and they aren't even villa fans!
At the moment I am a little hesitant to name a final league position because I don't want to jinx things but a good cup run(s) would be great especially Europe as it will give some of the younger members of the squad an appetite. I guess its like the first time you have a beer after a long hot day at work, once you've had one you want another.
Seen this week links with Cole, Santa Cruz, Smith, Milner and you have got to say that the Villa look an attractive option, European football, players coming in and financially sound (unless Mr Lerner is secretly the military war crime leader of a small country in the back end of nowhere) so compared to other clubs players must be taking note of our strong position, with the likes of Everton, Man City, Newcastle struggling with in fighting, paying the ice cream man and military coup's, things are looking up!
