Reading paper reports today, we are linked with Kyle Naughton who they say is a great young talent who should go on to become a future international footballer under the right tutor and he is developed the right way.
Now don’t get me wrong, it is great that Villa are linked with a good young player but does anyone else want to have this summer that ‘big signing’????
I really do but I cant see it coming.
I am struggling to see Martin O'Neill signing a player of real top quality, I mean a big player, convincing them of our ambition and that we want champions league football, getting the player to take a gamble and play for us for a year maybe 2, if it don’t work out with the guarantee they can move on if we are unsuccessful in our pursuit for a minimum fee. I would be very surprised if he managed to pull off a major signing.
I am not saying I know who he will sign but everyone knows he is questionable in the market and we have already had Barry leave because citeh were ‘moving in the right direction’, what does that say about Villa? Would a player sign for a team who gave up on the UEFA Cup and to a certain extent the league?
Another big question, who is going to set up to the plate next year for us? Young had a mid season blip and Gabby etc…. probably from burnout (but we still let him go the euro U21’s???) maybe Milner, MON had previously said (if I am correct someone mentioned it before on this site) he wanted to build a team around Milner, will this start this season? Maybe moving him into the middle next to Petrov / Sidwell.
All I am saying is can anyone see my point of view? I know people will disagree and they are entitled to do that, I am not saying that the players we will sign are going to be mediocre as well, Naughton has promise and Owen linked (again). But what I am saying is that personally and I am sure most people agree we would like to see international players at Villa Park.... not nearly internationals.
