Transfer Talk - 6 Days To Go... GULP!!!

Transfer Talk - 6 Days To Go... GULP!!!

Well, it is the business end of the transfer window fast approaching, only 6 days including today to go! Could be in for some nice surprises with luck!

The Daily Mail today are claiming that Birmingham City might be after Middlesbrough striker Tuncay for around £5million. As most will know, we've been regularly linked with him as well as the two Boro defenders David Wheater and Robert Huth with the lack of good strikers around and having not gone for Darren Bent I really hope (and yes, it doesn't matter a jot what I or anyone else hopes, only what the manager wants!) that we don't see a playmaker/striker like Tuncay leave for elsewhere for such a low price!

James Nursey at The Mirror has us linked with a 'double swoop' for Blackburn Rovers defender Stephen Warnock and Manchester City Captain Richard Dunne.

The report says we've agreed to pay £6.5m + add ons for Warnock and will pay £6m for 29-year-old Dunne. Wages of around £52 000 are mentioned, how a player is meant to live on poultry earnings like that a week is pretty much beyond me, I'd say that was tountermount to slave labour and maybe us fans could have a collection to supplement it?!

Another report suggests MON might offer Dunne the captaincy to attract him to Villa Park..

Will ask the Vital City guys for an interview like I did re: Warnock and Distin!

Erm, Dunne as captain? He's not worth it. He's a good defender but Reo Coker has deserved that armband for villa longer than Dunne. Distin and Warnock are both brilliant buys. Anyway forget Dunne, Why let Everton move for Hangeland?

I don't think Distin will come, he looks Everton bound. Which isn't a bad thing; he doesn't attack the ball well enough for me, he provides the same kind of service that both Cuellar and Davies do - ie, the sweeping (no, not like a janitor, doofus)

Oh & totally agree on Tuncay. If we sign a good centre-back & Warnock, that'll keep me happy enough but if we was to sign Tuncay then I'd look at that as a very good end to the horror that is the transfer window

I think we should go all out for Haageland at the back because he is real quality (laursen type) and with Bouma nearly fit to play CB and luke young back soon beye can also play CB.
