January Transfer Window Thread Pt 1

The January Transfer Window Thread Part 1

Oh no, here we go! I've tried to hold off as long as I could as there hasn't been that much transfer talk quite yet, but as people are now starting to ask, I thought I'd better get it sorted.

So you know the form, post your wants, any rumours you hear, who you would buy and maybe who you would sell and lets see how much madness we can suffer through the transfer window and up to Feb 1st!

Forum thread: Click Here

And as is the tradition... over to you Mr O'Neill !

personally not convinced there is going to be much quality movement in January and lets face it, with the squad we have now, we don't need any 'fillers' we are building with only better than we already have. Would think a few like Harewood and Shorey will be moved on if the right offers come in but that won't have too much impact.

I know the rumours have already started but I think Robbie Keane is worth a shout as he'd bring something different to the strikers we currently have. The big problem is would Spurs sell a player to a 'rival' team???

Wake me up when it's Feb. All I'm interested in in Jan is beating Blackburn 3 times and getting good results against Wigan, West Ham, Arsenal and Fulham. Only joking - I'll be reading every link there is! Sad sad man. I would be surprised if we didn't see Shorey and Harewood go, and wild ones would be Reo Coker going and Delph going out on loan. In, er, ask me on the last day of the window, because I've given up guessing as I'm always wrong.

Can't see us bringing in anyone. Heskey is producing at last and the Fonz is still in the background, untested. Maybe a cheeky move for a Ruud Van Nistelroy type figure as a spur to the others? Can't see much else - and why should we? I think that the existing squad will get better in the second half as Downing settles in. Milner gets more accustomed to his role and Delph gradually makes an impact - though suspensions/ injuries seem to be the only way he will get in. So, for me, the least eagerly awaited transfer window that I can remember.

MON saying Carew isn't going anywhere and he doesn't want to lose any players: I would be pretty loathe to be losing players. John has been an integral part of the side, he's done very well and I want a bit of genuine competition for places, which I think I have at the moment, maybe not everywhere but in a number of areas."

Personally I would like to see what this team could do rather than wasting money in the Jan window. I would spend a few £'s on the cheesse burgers. Imagine 40,000 cheeseburgers for 19 home games = 760,000 burgers so spend £760,000 on making the burgers £1 cheaper. Then get in a better range, you can't beat a big mac! The current burger is crap which is suprising for an American owner!

I can seriously see a swap deal with Jenas and Reo-Coker. I see Spurs going with advanced wide-men (Modric, Kranjcar, Bentley and Lennon) and two holding central midfielders (Huddlestone and Palacios). That leaves no defensive minded centre-midfielders. We, on the other hand, need a bit of creativity. Jenas was great when he came on against us. Another thing is that neither is going to S. Africa at the moment so therefore, the move would be good for both, if they still have aspirations!! Im sure we would need to throw 3 or 4 million with Reo-Coker to get him im sure!

We have two players covering every position. In most cases every player, or emerging young talent, is of a better than average quality. We have taken 3 and a half years to be at he level we are now at. I would be happy to see the likes of Harewood, Osbourne, Salifou and any other that is not going to improve us, be allowed to move on so that they generate some income, reduce the wage bill and be allowed to carry on with their own careers. I would then put all available money in to, one headline making, goalscoring, superstar. Very simply, we are one headline signing from making a real mark in the League. When we have that player that every other team fears (Drogba, Rooney, Torres, Ronaldo etc) then we will also get more goals from everybody else. It probably can't happen in January, but before next season with just one signing Villa have the opportunity to make the rest of the football world sit up and take notice.

Sidwell, harewood and shorey out please. I dont think we need anyone creative in the middle now as Milner seems to be doing a pretty good job. I want to see Delph get more minutes so I dont want Sidwell above him in the pecking order. Dzeko would never come but perhaps Huntelaar finally needs somewhere to pick himself up again but wherever he goes he ends up on the bench, so maybe that says something about his personality. I could never see why we didnt go for Tuncay? He could bring something to us and cant even get a start at Stoke. Zamora would be another Harewood so no thanks. Nene is leading goalscorer in the french league and im sure we are bigger than Monaco so maybe we could offer him a move? I dunno its way to hard to call. either way we dont urgently need anyone do we?

I think we need a striker as my main worry at the moment is a lean period for Gabby. We all know the problem with January is no one wants to sell especially to there nearest rivals which would scupper a Robbie Keane bid and the worry of bringing a foreign stirker in is that the time it takes for them to get up to the pace of the game.

How about Ruud Van Nostrilboy? Surely got to be worth a go, he still knows where the net is and has proven he can do it at the top level. What a message to send out signing a player of his calibre and surely one that will get the players buzzing. I remember him talking a few years back how he loves playing in a team who get the ball out wide and stick it in the box for him, well, thats our game. I think he'd be a good January signing and would no doubt clock up our goal difference. I might mention it to MON next time I meet him at pottery club.

Now, now claretandbluearmy, Spurs do hold that 1-1 win over us from a few weeks ago. How Harry Redknapp is never in the dock for tapping up players is amazing. The guy tapped up Defoe last Jan after another club was close to signing him & then there's the Peter Crouch/Sunderland farce from the summer. Yet O'Dreary said, "I've heard someone might be interested in joining Villa." & Villa are slapped with a charge of tapping up James Beattie. As for Jenas/Ashley Young swap Harry & the Spurs fans are begging for, it's never going to happen. Although I can see Villa signing the waste of space from Spurs, Young won't make the step down to Spurs, especially with him being a Gooner. So Spurs fans, do your research!

After that showing vs pool we definately need a striker who can finish! I'm sick of Carew and his useless flick ons and Gabby isn't prolific enough. Why oh why didn't we try for Bent? Without a proven fox in the box we will struggle to better ourselves this season. If the quality isn't available in the EPL then MON should take a look abroad or risk our season falling back to a slump in form again. Yep I'm angry at the results of late but what will change?? Our formation? Our finishing? Our long ball approach? non of this is looking like it will change and at the moment we are not pretty to watch! We must either bring through young fresh talent and gamble or buy quality when its available. If we are knocking on CL door then we have to be able to add quality to get us into that top 4 position and to keep us there. I hope the next 2-3 results prove me wrong. Rant over :p UTV.

How about a £2.5m punt on Kris Boyd? He's out of contract in the summer & can't do any harm for that price. Any news on Joe Cole's contract talks as I'm sure he's a free agent in the summer? I'd have liked to have got Cattermole, Bent & Turner in the summer but Sunderland beat us to them all. Surely Benni McCarthy or James Beattie could do a job upfront until the end of the season at least.

I'm really excited about how good Delfouneso may become. He certainly has a good eye for goal. He's scoring record for the England youth teams is excellent. Better than 1 in 2games (18 in 32). Perhaps we may start to see more of him after todays match. Again I think we should priorties a world class creative ball playing central midfielder. We need to be capabile of keeping more of the ball against the current top 4 teams and create more chances. We were dominated in the middle of the park against Liverpool, Asrenal and Manure.

Dead Souls - Even with us (spurs) you knew KPB was going to be class but for a side who need pre-packaged players to push for European football he's probably a year away from the standard you need. So it depends on whether you have the patience, would be good cover for Milner in the centre, but he probably needs matches so if I where you I'd leave it until the summer (might even get him in the sales)

I used to think MO'N went for a certain personality myself, but off the pitch, some recent players have been questionable. Heskey began rocking the boat when he rightfully couldn't get a game, Downing prefers the decks to a pre-season rest or adding more to his game, Dick H. Dunne & that drawn out mess of a transfer, Beye being quoted as wanting to end his career at Newcastle a few weeks before joining us & Warnock spitting the dummy out & refusing to play until he got his move to us. Some decent players who are doing a job on the pitch, although with questionable attitudes off it. But then again, how many good characters are there in the Premier League? I'd be happier this window if we kept Gardner above signing anyone. Hey MO'N should give him 1 of those Dick Dunne/Stan Petrov contracts with guaranteed 1st team football no matter how bad you play.

The reason players like Benni McCarthy and Ruud Van Nistleroy are been spoke about is because we are Villa!. Some fans on here seem to think its 1982 again. We are not top 4, we don't have Europe to offer this year and no guarantees for next year. on top of this a wage cap that keeps us in the black rather than "doing a Pompie", a wage cap and a manager that tends to hold a grudge for mistake (Carew), and has favorites. Don't get me wrong we should be aiming for progress, bigger and better things, however, lets act like wre top 4 when we actually get there. in the meantime, Warnock, Dunne, Collins etc have been brilliant and long may it continue. They, like Villa are looking top push forward and improve but unlike some of the stars that are around, they are willing to bust there arses to get there. in MON we trust! Some of the transfers haven't work admittedly but with the money that he spends he has room to take these gambles.

Defour would be a great signing. Huntelaar only moved to Milan last summer so it's unlikely he'd go anywhere surely? But if we put in a bid for either of those it'd come as a shock, it's extremely unlikely, but the thought of it's nice. Stephen Ireland? Now Man City have Viera he may find it hard to get into the team, but saying that, our midfields pretty solid and there may be no place for him here either. I would say a striker is what we need though definitely, a prolific scorer. Heskey just doesn't score enough and as much as I love Carew, you never know whether he'll turn up, some days he's on fire, others he's the opposite.

Point is (apart from the fact I VERY much doubt we are looking at him anyway) he appears to be second choice for Sunderland so I would be surprised if we went for 2nd best but was wondering if anyone had anything positive about the guy as I really don't know a great deal about him and rarely watch sunderland.

Just looks sort of average really? But then again, only 25 and so not at his peak, nearly 1 in 3 for Sunderland? Not convinced though!

Dream on, Bentley had his chance and now Milner has taken his place with aplomb! Jenas isn't the type of mf we need either, we need another tough guy with skill and Jenas is a box to box player with a chip on his shoulder. No thanks. Would much prefer Van Der Vaart and Crouch. Crouch would love it.

Some of the names I've seen mentioned Babel...seems to think he deserves a spot in the Liverpool team yet has done bugger all when given his chance Kuyt...next Zaki...played well until it got cold, then the attitude started and the goals dried up K. Davies...a good solid pro, but we need a goal scorer Van Der Vaart...wants to stay at Real despite being frozen out. makes you wonder what his footballing motives really are Huntelaar & Ruud...quality goal scorers, but too much money Joe Cole...there is no way he is leaving Chelsea Tuncay...agree with most, we should have got him in the Summer, don't think he'll leave in Jan In my opnion, we need a centre midfielder. We saw what happened in the Liverpool game when Milner had to play out wide...we didn't have it. Were linked with that Defour from Belgium, reports have been good, international appearances have been impressive, and probably doesn't have a big enough ego or wage demands to put is off. As far as a striker is concerned, we really should have signed Darren Bent. Not necessarily and England striker, but scores goals for fun in the PL. Other than that, I think we already have the natural goal scorer in our Squad in The Fonz. Admittedly his experience isn't high, but unless he plays he isn't going to get it. Not to mention that so far his goals to minutes played ratio for the first team is mightily impressive.

Spurs in talks with the overpaid overated Gudjohnson... although the hammers are also interested (link back up with Zola and Clarke-re Chelsea days) personally i'd rather have Keane or Pavlo whats his name ... Harry is making the same mistake we made last year by bringing in Heskey ... Strikers need time to settle... if he arrives i can see someone leaving at least on loan .... sadly i dont see them loaning to their nearest rival... unless we do a swap with Carew.... who would you have Keane or Strawberry Pavlova ?

I'd still gamble on a short term fix of James Beattie as Gabby really does at times need to be taken out of it or play Beattie as the target man and Gabby playing off him. We aren't going to be bringing in the top quality we need (not available also I'd say!) so just another option, JC is injuried again, Heskey injury prone. Would also love to see Fonz get more sub action.

I'm currently reading a book by Gianluca Vialli about the differences between the attitudes of the English and Italian Games. One thing he notices is that in Italy the focus is more on Technique, where as in England it is effort. I've noticed that James Beattie was mentioned due to "getting stuck in." Carew gets stuck in, Gabby does, Heskey...but they're not scoring goals, which is what we need right now. That special someone who can change the game in a split second, the technical genius who knows how to hit the target everytime.

This window has frustrated me as we obviously need a striker but dont seem to be in for any! Is the money there to spend?? Mattyh1986, decent shout for keane as spuds now look to have Gudjohnson. Not everyones favourite but Keane would offer us goals IMO. Surely a cheeky bid would temp spuds to part with him and Keane can return to the midlands. Maybe a swap involving Carew?

We have the best CM in the country at the moment in milner and Downing goes from strength to sttength each game and Ashley well, he would get into any prem team at the moment. Gabi is abit hot and cold but he works his ass off, all he needs is a few goals to boost his confidence and they will come. I agree we need one more striker but we dont need to spend 20m + on some fancy name, let spurs and man city fall into that trap. When JC is on the pitch he is always a threat especially with the delivery from Milner, Young and Downing. Gabi will start firing soon kid needs abit of luck. everyone needs to calm down.
