The Aston Villa Summer Transfer Thread Pt 1

The Aston Villa Summer Transfer Thread Pt 1

Ok, here it is, the summer long torture thread. Sorry, did I say torture, I meant TRANSFER thread. Last summer we filled about 10 or 11 of these up with article comments so lets see if we can't out do ourselves and maybe this time we'll all end up happy and positive with the incoming and outgoing players!?

So basically use this thread as you wish, who have you seen linked, who would you like in, which linked players would be good, bad or just plain ugly?

We also have the forum thread to endure, sorry I meant enjoy: Click Here

And in time honoured fashion, I'll simply say....

Over to you Mr O'Neill !

Movements so far:

Out

Gareth Barry £12million

In

It's not just new players we need to strengthen the squad but we need to be able to adapt the way we play as teams in the latter half of the season have found us out plus as legs have got tired the time in a game we can play the high tempo counter-attacking has decreased

Transfer Outs surely will be Laursen, Harewood, Taylor and Barry. I honestly do not think we can have any more in the 'outs' column. I dont think there will be much money available. I think Bentley is definitley on his way in. I would love to see Defour in, I really would but he may be a bit pricey, I actually think that we will not see a Barry replacement - I think he will stick with Petrov and Reo-Coker, Sidwell or Gardner and go with who is on form. Possibly Milner as well with Bentley and Young on the flanks. A new centre-back and a second choice RB is priority. EVERY SINGLE SEASON saying we need a Right-Back...unbelievable!!! At the Boro game when Young went off injured we had Milner at RB and Reo-Coker ahead of him at right-wing. I knew right then that the winner was not coming!!

Wouldn't shock me to see NRC go to be honest, nothing to back that up really just a hunch and the fact he obviously doesn't like a) being right back b) being on the bench. Going to be a very interesting summer. Agree with 2fishinatank, I think we need options as we have been sussed.
