Villa Rumours

Villa Rumours

A Portugal footy site has quotes from Pacos de Ferreira left-back Vitorino Antunes who apparently could be set to sign for Aston Villa.

The left-back, according to PortuGOAL, has impressed Villa and the Portugal Under-21 said:

“It would be a great chance to play in England for a big club.”

And Vital Villa member thegreatdando posted this set of rumours in our forum:

Also does anyone read the 'football bible' that is FansFC, we have no fewer than 5 transfer links to Giles Barnes (if Derby don't make it to the Premiership), Marlon King (except he's signed a contract at Watford till 2010), Antunes for £750,000, Distin (but we all knew that) and a shock return for Darius Vassell (apparently part of a massive Eastlands clear out)..

At this point i'd like to consult Beefy's Bull-S***-O-Meter!!!

Adding, Ooops and I forgot Man Utd outcast Gerard Pique....

Another link I've seen are Sheffield United defender Phil Jagielka who, according to the gossip sites, is rated at £6million. Not to mention the repeated links to Craig Bellamy, Steve Sidwell (thought Chelsea had got him?) and ......, no think that was it actually!

To be fair, i think speculating at this transfer window is probably some of the most fruitless we'll do. Last year it was easier, but this year we're talking world class players, and it seems if we're to attract those they'll come from abroad.

I think the title of this article is spot on, these are just DAFT links. However, on a side note, on some of the not so good players we are being linked with, who is to say that these types of players wouldn't be successful at other clubs. Take Crouch for example, abysmal for us, and good fo Southampton & Liverpool. Some may be worth taking a punt on for small amounts of money.

Yeah but liverpool didn't take that much of a punt because he was great a southhamption. Southhampton didn't really take a punt either, he was just the best player they could get. Villa unlike southhampton will have more money and pulling power so there is no point in taking punts on players that are not getting a game somewhere, unless they have proven themselves to be a good player and are just playing in a good team, like shaun wright phillips at chelsea.

Ahhhh, but it's all about perception, what if you sign a player with a massive repuation for big money, and he turns out to be pants a'la Collymore.
