'If It's Football, It's Vital'

A Link, A Link, My Kingdom For A Decent Villa Link

Yawn fest I'm afraid folks, even the links are getting boring and more strangely today, they are all for players outwards!

Marlon Harewood, who has apparently been shocking in both our recent friendlies (see Glensider's match reports) would like to join Hull City according to his agent Phil Sproson who said in the Daily Mail: 'Marlon would certainly jump at the chance to join Hull City and the club knows that. Hull City know where we are and know Marlon's situation. I have spoken to Phil Brown recently and he said the situation was that Hull were looking at a couple of players and were assessing their options. Marlon and Bobby played together at West Ham, they know each other very well and are friends, so he would love to play alongside him again.'

I can't see that impressing Hull, a transfer being talked about in the press by a players agent? If they know the situation, why does he need to be talking about them to the Mail?

The Daily Mail have ... wait for it... an exclusive. So exclusive in fact that they put it in capital letters EXCLUSIVE... wow, got me hooked.

They claim that Steve Bruce wants to grab Nigel Hokey-Cokey for a mere 6million... which is a doubling of the price from the report yesterday linking him to Middlesbrough for 3million. Inflation eh, totally out of hand. (Jenas In As Villa Do The Hokey-Cokey)

Anyway, in this report, which must be true because it is EXCLUSIVE, Julian Bing, not related to Chandler Bing I assume, mostly because Chandler Bing was a fictional character... yes, I really am this bored with the transfer stories today... says that 25-year-old NRC is seen as the right man to add some 'steel' to Sunderland's midfield having failed to land Wigan's Lee Cattermole.

Apparently MON has already told Reo-Coker he can leave if the right offer comes in but wants the deal done quickly so he can replace him. MON did say yesterday he is looking for five quality arrivals PLUS replacements for any players sold.

Hey, radical idea, why not keep the players we buy and add to them?!?!

As reported yesterday in the Villa Times 22-year-old striker Sam Williams has left Villa after his contract expired and has joined Yeovil Town.

Yup folks, looks like it is going to be a quiet news day, why not go outside, venture into the real world, do something else... like dodge the rain... not before clicking an advert or two and making me my millions though obviously!

sky sports says that Pompey have ruled out a Distin sale! This could be interesting to see who O'neill goes for (if he was after Distin in the first place)

yup Runtingz, I usually ramble when I'm struggling and above is grade A ramblings I think!!!! lol, don't put that passed me either 2fishinatank, I did a beaut last year claiming we were in for van Nistelrooy and his girlfriend had been spotted looking around the bouteques matalan and aldi in Aston! I always think when the links dry up the real signings are about to start... or is that just blind optimism!?

I don't think the CB issue will be solved anytime soon. When Terry has made his mind up and Citeh have spent another wad on either him or Lescott, the also rans will rush to find the remaining chairs in an expensive game of 'musical defenders'!!!

What happened to Sol Campbell? I thought he's a free agent that MON was after? What's taking so long????

blimey i hope we can do better than sol at the back as laursens game was well ahead of him and most other defenders for that matter...i think Haggaland would be perfect if we can get him

Sol would not be a direct replacement for big Martin agreed, but still a good addition to pitch in when required. He's free as well.

At the end of the day no one has a clue who mon is after, so therefore we dont know who if anyone we have missed out on, we have to have faith in the manager, yes its frustrating. I personally think Campbell would be a good addition, not Laursen replacement though.

Glad you cleared that up Fear, I thought we were reading an article by some hacker from another teams forum! Anyhow, I am getting very scared. I like to have faith in MON bringing people in, but the past history we have made with him doesn't really bread confidence. If I just think of the "Right Back" replacement saga that dragged on for 18 months before we finally got Luke Young, only to play him of the left side for half a season, I fear our "Barry and Laursen" replacement search also ending this TW unsolved! Can we really afford to be "patient" as MON has reported he is, for 18 months while we are looking for replacements for Barry and Laursen????????
