So Who Will Villa Sign? Pt 5

So Who Will Villa Sign? Pt 5

The fifth instalment of our summer long gossip column!

We've already had 1420 rumours, arguments and links! So Who Will Villa Sign Pt 4 - Click Here

Tis the end of the season - you might well have noticed, what with the league being won, the fixtures ending and the players packing their bags to go on their holidays.

So here comes the speculation and rumour season, with loads of players about to be linked to Aston Villa and hopefully a good few actually coming to Villa Park in time for the 2007/2008 season.

So back, by popular demand, is the rumours thread on the front page. See a story linking us with a player? Share it with us all. Heard a tenuous link, or seen a player around Villa Park? Let us know! Oh, and although I'll do my best to announce incoming players as soon as possible, if you hear of a signing before I do, wang it on this thread as well.

The January thread ended up with nearly 2000 article comments, spaced over several articles (the limit per article is now 400 after I got it raised, anymore than that and it slows things down too much so I'll change the threads over each time we hit the limit!)

So Far.

Damn beat me too it!!!!

OK - I did cheat a little on Eidur Gudjohnsen - but I couldnt think of anyone starting with E!!
02/07/2007 14:58:00
Its just hit me - I know what the WE START TODAY means - they are the initial letter for our summer signings!! This theory is fool-proof!! Some good signings - I am particulalry looking forward to our Tevez and Gudjohnson front-line. Now if only we could get a keeper!! Wright-Phillips Eidur Gudjohnson Sneijder Tainio Anelka Reo-Coker Taylor Tevez Odonkor Defoe Alves Young

Essien?? That would be a right touch.

It's always frustrating being a Villa fan. Loads of talk and loads of chat amongst us on here but no concrete news still !! But here's my two-penneth anyway: Can we have Gordon, Jagielka (he still ain't gone anywhere), Reo-Coker (at last), SWP and either Defoe or Nugent, I rate them both. Mepham said we wanted signings in by return to training. Isn't that this Wednesday? Put us out of our misery then !!!

Interesting listening to Talk Sport this evening and in particular Ian Wright. Firstly he spoke very highly of MON when it was suggested he could be sacked early into the season. Wrighty thought Villa were top 6. Then a Villa fan come and asked him outright about SWP. Was very diplomatic but Wrighty spoke very highly of the Villa.
02/07/2007 17:10:00
MON to be sacked!? Give the bloke a chance for god sake, this is his first full pre-season and people already want him out the door?
02/07/2007 17:40:00
Likelihood of him getting sacked was probably suggested by the Ginger Tosser Durham. I mean what are the odds in the bookies? Now should MON completely lose the plot and buy 2 players prior to seasons start and we have a nightmare and are bottom at Christmas maybe those odds will shorten dramatically
