Friday's Aston Villa Transfer Talk

Well there were a couple of links last night including alot of talk of Charles N'Zogbia joining Villa, read about it here - Are Villa About To Sign Charles N'Zogbia?

Also last night, Setanta Sports reported that Marseille's Elliot Grandin could be on the verge of a move to Aston Villa on loan until the end of the season with a view to a permanent move. He is a 21 year old striker, but I really don`t know anything else about him.

The link we had all been hoping for - Manchester City's Micah Richards has been linked in The Mirror with a move to the club!!! The report says (following Laursen's injury) 'Targets include Man City defender Micah Richards, 20, who has been linked recently with several other Premier League clubs'.

With three days left of the transfer window, we all know this is O'Neill's busiest time, so expect at least one more addition, maybe even one or two leaving? Who knows…………

I remember when he made his debut for Man City and it was against us in the FA Cup he scored an equaliser in the last minute and he was being interviewed on the BBC at about 5pm after the game and asked by Garth Crooks if he enjoyed scoring the goal he replied "Yeah it was **** amazing", Garth just reminded him that despite being 17 and excited that he was on the BBC and needed to keep the swearing under control. Classic.
young_jonah
That should say *****ing amazing by the way
young_jonah
Micah Richards would be a very good purchase, come on son fancy a pop at winning the league?
Tez86
Ah for *****s sake
young_jonah
Its the F word.
young_jonah
Lol having problems Jonah?
Tez86
Hare and Sally are surplus to requirements but given our squad size even these useless lumps should be kept until the summer.
Saurat
Yes Tez its the ******** filter on this site doing my ******** nut in, lol
young_jonah
yeah, swear filter on the front page folks, mainly because we get a wide range of ages on here! Micah would be a great signing !
The Fear
So we are apparently in for 3 of Citeh's best young prospects. Can't see Sparky letting any of them go. Maybe Stuzza in the summer as they will be able to buy many more with their billions and the fact that he is a Villa fan but would be very suprised to see any in the next few days.
Villan444
Is he actually a Villa fan though? I've heard many different things. Villa, Blues and Arsenal seem to be the main ones but does anyone know for sure?
PTP
He is from Birmingham, sometimes people just assume that anyone from Birmingham is a Villa fan.
young_jonah
I thought he was from Leeds.
Tez86
The gospal of Wikipedia says he was born in Birmingham when his parents were visiting relatives, but he did grow up in Chapeltown, a district of Leeds.
Tez86
Useless lumps, Saurat? Apart from being very harsh and completely unnecessary, I thought they were still Villa players at the moment? IMHO anybody wearing a Villa shirt should be treated with respect - they ain't Blouse players you know ...
BobTheBuilder
I really hope we get Micah Richards! That would be fantastic, him and Heskey! But of course, N'Zogbia (Insomnia) would be geat too! Come on Martin, get the wallet out!
villa_de
Mind you, if Michah Richards comes, and we already have Cuellar, Davies and Laursen ahead of Knight, I guess we will sell or loan out poor Zat! And he has played so well lately!
villa_de
4 in by Saturday...count them 4!
bentonm
Shorey's off to Boro by the sounds of it...
olofthegreat
Zat is definitely a Villan so can't see him going anywhere but Laursen maybe worse off than we think. It was 2 years last time and although he came back to be a legend, he isn't getting any younger. Same age as me and I know what its like to have a dodgy knee and feel pain every time that I play.
Villan444
bentonm you do talk rubbish....
In MON we trust!
I think we should keep harewood at least until the end of the season if not longer,got the right attitude and wants to play 4 us even if he isn't the most gifted of players.
Davilla83
Giles Barnes has been give permission to talk to an unnamed Prem team about a loan deal. Could it be us?
mattyslost
Never mind he has gone Fulham lol.
mattyslost
Reckon Bentonm's Eircol? Back with his mystical ball (or his wife's brother the journo).
PTP
Downing will be next
tarzan
I think Harewood and Sailfou could go now without being missed, but Shorey is still needed. Who knows how long it will take Bouma to get to 100%.
Nimmo
Micah Richards would be a great signing. Would rather play him at right back than centre half though.
DoLpHiNaToR
Micah Lincoln Richards (born 24 June 1988 in Birmingham) + http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Micah_Richards <- My proof lol, i think he would be a Great signin, Harewood and Sailfou and shorey can go, but i also would like to get Bale form tottenham =] anyone agree?
