I would like to suggest a poll/petition to keep Villa 5 - 1 Blouse a permenant fixture on the latest results table. Mr Fear is this possible?
29/08/2008 17:48:00
no don't think so Northcliffe, mainly because that would suggest they matter to the mighty Villa! :o)

(oh, good idea by the way northcliff! Not got time to code that though, it would affect all the following results!)

If we could get a striker in, that would be the icing on the cake, but can't see any team letting such a rare commodity as a top striker go at this stage of the summer.

Saha once Berba goes to united?

Bit late Son_of_cher - he's going to Everton!
29/08/2008 18:22:00
A net spend of arond £40million, does that make us the biggest spenders over the summer?
29/08/2008 18:33:00
I would like to see Martins brought in from Newcastle for a new striker. Though it will be very very hard to prise him away.

Looks like James Milner is our new Record Signing. Definitely worth the money in my opinion, as he will turn out just like Ashley Young has, and Milner's value is only going to increase, especially if he makes it into the England squad.
