Martin O'Neill Says Villa Actively Looking

Martin O'Neill back and hopefully refreshed from a holiday in the States, has told the official site that Villa are 'actively pursuing' new signings.

The Villa boss promised:

'We're on the lookout. We want to strengthen the side. We have lost Gareth but we are hoping to be in a position to replace him. Having looked at the market and watched what has developed with the major transfers - Kaka and Ronaldo particularly - you can definitely say it's interesting times.'

Not that interesting yet, be better when we sign someone!!!! :o))



He also again mentions the likes of Manchester City and Tottenham as a threat next season and expects Everton to also be up there again, so warns even to stand still he has to improve the team.

Reading what MON has said it is just vague promises to the future. When you read phrases like "actively pursuing" and "on the lookout" it makes one wonder what they have been doing in the run up to the transfer window, day dreaming, chewing the cud or what. By now they should know precisely who they want and be out to get them come what may. Swapping one for one, having lost our best player, is hardly improving the squad. Sadly, I suspect the dark forebodings written above may again come to pass. Come on Villa, don't just window shop, go out and buy some decent additions. At best, one in one out, plus at least another five top class, proven performers. And that is just to stand still.
