Manager Attempts To Calm Supporters

Manager Attempts To Calm Supporters

Well, the complaints are already out as a small section of Aston Villa fans have found something new to complain about (a favourite pastime of some of the Villa faithful.)

Supporter forums are starting to fill up with 'are you worried' style discussions regarding the lack of 'players in', coupled with a steady increase in 'players out.'

With Juan Pablo Angel, Gavin McCann, Aaron Hughes, Jlloyd Samuel already having left for other clubs and two youth goalkeepers in Stephen Henderson and Robert Olejnik departing Villa Park, it is obvious that the club will now need to strengthen to avoid the David O'Leary situation of 'small squad, honest lads.'

Villa boss Martin O'Neill, who returned to work this week following a holiday told 'We are looking to strengthen the squad in the next month and we want to be in a position where we can challenge.'

'The supporters can rest assured we will be strengthening the squad and we will let them know as soon as there is anything to report.'

Hard to bear at the moment, but actions speak louder than words. I don't think there's any need to panic, but this period of time can be likened to christmas. Waiting to open presents is one thing but we all knoe you save the big surprise till last as it always leaves a lasting impression. UTV

im sick of all this crap that they'll b coming in etc. can't we just snap them up now.

Keep the faith. Scouse Red Fans are panicking about there lack of spending too. They're getting really edgy. There's no need for us to do the same. In MON we trust (well at least some of us do!).

Be patient for god sake, these things take time, most players and managers are only just getting back off holiday. Deals have been done, they just need to be finalised. There are some big signings about to be unveiled, all is fine. Don't prove O'Dreary wright by acting fickle. Preperations for a big press conferance are already under way, so something is about to happen. I can assure people they will be smiling soon, very soon. UTV

There will be some seriously red faces shortly. In MON and the new board I believe. I know no more than anyone else but these matters are not instant. The reason prices are as stupid as they are is the very reason that we can't 'snap them up now' Patience is a virtue and so is common sense! Up the Villa.

I agree that prices are ridiculous and that Villa should probably stay well away,but if we are stalling because prices are too high another team will come in and pay the asking price.There is overcharging on every player except with ones we sell (if Davis goes for 4 mil).We started the summer needing about 4 players at least,how many do we need now?If O Neill hasn't got signings already done then he's made a mess of this window.

If this was the Deadly/O'Dreary era I would be panicking. It isn't. We have Martin and the wise Lerner. Sit back. Relax. Make a pot of tea. Take a slice of battenburg. Await the good news with a considered smile.
29/06/2007 11:08:00
Well said yamyam. Act in haste. Repent a leisure. All good things come to those who wait. Patience is a virtue. He who laughs last, laughs longest.The proof will be in the pudding. It is a marathon not a sprint. I have just put on a bubble perm wig and a big moustache for this next bit ............. calm down, calm down, day do do dat doe dont day (only works in a scouse accent but you can guess what I am getting at). Keep the faith. No doubt 48 will come on here to shoot me down in flames but he is as entitled to his opinion as I am mine, and I actually think he does it with a good heart and with the best of intentions, no matter how we think he comes across.
