Dan Jones asks if it is time for Villa to move for Spurs striker Darren Bent: As an Aston Villa fan there are three things that you can be sure of each summer:- 1. An agonising wait for signings to arrive 2. Plenty of debate about the ability of the manager 3.

Mike Field: Martin O'Neill is looking forward to a more relaxed pre season build up this year, after our Intertwobob commitments last season. That being said though, he says each game will still be competitive and the players will be working hard to achieve full fitness in readiness for the forthcoming campaign. Speaking on the official site the gaffer said: 'There are pros and cons to any pre season.
The last time around we got into playing 'must win' games very early on but we will have a gradual build up this time around. It's going to be interesting but still very competitive.' Full list of friendlies + article comments: Pre Season Build Up Less Hectic

From last Thursday, Mike Field Leeds United have announced on their official site that they have rejected two bids from Premiership clubs for starlet Fabian Delph.

Full quotes: Leeds Reject Delph Bid

Vital Villa asked, in a poll suggested by Black Villian: Do Villa need more investors to compete? 55% voted no, Randy is tops! 26% voted that more investment would help. 16% yes
2% had no idea and just 1% think we've enough youth talent coming through to make a challenge on the upper reaches of the league.

Our latest poll asks who would you prefer as a new striker? Darren Bent (Spurs), Peter Crouch (Portsmouth), Eidor Gudjohnsen (Barcelona) or Robbie Keane (Spurs), all of whom have been linked recently.

A discussion point from the weekend: Would it be folly for Villa to try to do something audacious and try to grab England star David Beckham? Would it help put us on the map, get bums on seats, generate a bit of excitement and also help us help him in his bid to be fit and ready for the World Cup in 2010 which is bound to be his England swan-song? Seriously, why not? If you don't ask, you don't get!?
