Villa Line Up £5m West Brom Raid

Villa Line Up £5m West Brom Raid

Aston Villa boss Martin O`Neill has lined up a £5million move for local rivals` Welsh international Jason Koumas.

Koumas has been watched numerous times by both O`Neill and Aston Villa chief scout Ian Storey-Moore during the season just gone, and it now appears that the Villa management are ready to make a move.

It is believed that O`Neill is prepared to let at least one, possibly two, of the Villa academy graduates make the short trip across town on loan as part of the deal with both Isaiah Osbourne, and local derby goal scoring hero Gary Cahill mentioned as potential West Brom targets.

So then chaps we are now 6 weeks away from the big kick off & Villa have signed erm,erm,erm.......??The ludicrous claim that you are going to challenge the top 4 (being hugely disrespectful to Tottenham,Everton in the process) seems fantasy for a team that won just a single more game than Sheffield Utd & who couldnt even muster a top half finish.Seems you are closer to bottom 4 than top 4,unlike certain others that is.

Who let this clown make a Vital Villa news bulletin. No sources, no actual facts. If your just regurgitating a rumour make sure you state so, rather than stating a bid has actually been lined up.

Hey Chalky - come on here and leave that comment in 6 weeks time. Then, and only then, if no further action has come to pass, will every other pointless word you've wasted your time writing above apply.
27/06/2007 16:24:00
Perhaps you should actually comment on the story, rather than ripping into the editor? Jebus even I just searched google for "aston villa" and got numerous sources!!!

Thanks for your concern chalky76, but in MON we trust. Martin's only got back from his holidays this week, and there should be no rush to sign up just any old players. I don't see the clubs that you've mentioned announcing numerous new signings (the only new player Spurs or Everton have brought in so far is Gareth Bale I believe), though obviously they have a few years headstart in terms of challenging the "top 4". You're certainly making huge assumptions, and more than likely setting yourself up for a fall come the start of the new season. Perhaps you should be saving your comments for when you actually have something tangible to discuss? Anyway, back on topic: In my opinion, Koumas would be a useful signing at £5 million and give us more options next term. He has something to prove at the top level, and assuming that Osbourne would be going on loan, it would certainly benefite his development.

If you look on the Vital Liverpool site they are bemoaning the lack of signings. There really haven't been many significant signings yet. It will all kick off next week. Patience is a virtue. Oh and Chalky, Yes we won only one more game than Sheff Utd but no one outside the top 4 lost as few as we did.

Sheffield Utd only conceded one more goal than Spurs... great showing for Spurs who have aspirations of 4th spot.

Well we need players to replace the one's already left I suspect if MON wants him he will be along soon.
