I believe this was raised on the forum yesterday, could Villa be in with a bid for the Bearded Wonder to return him to his rightful home?
Well I don't know if the Evening Mail have had the same thoughts given the most unfortunate retirement of Martin Laursen, whether this piece of potential wishful thinking is doing the rounds or even if they know something I don't know - which face it, is easy to achieve.
I'm sure I know things I don't even know about, but anyway.
The Mail today speculates that O'Neill is due to tempt good ol Mellberg back to Villa Park but to fill the void of Mighty Laursen.
Admittedly there are no quotes, but given the situation at Juve with Ranieri sacked, the arrival of Cannavaro from Real and a new boss, even with a couple of seasons remaining on his contract it might not be enough for Melly to want to be bench warmer.
Especially as he's had quite a good season aswell.
To be honest we should never have put Melly in the position of wanting to leave, we all knew he wasn't entirely happy with his right back berth and although the Laursen/Mellberg partnership wasn't fully successful at points we'll never know what they could've achieved had they been given plenty of time to gell.
The return of the bearded one would certainly bring some needed relief to the faithful as we head into an uncertain transfer window.
But the question is, would Mellberg be scared he could end up on the left wing?
