A report this morning in the News of the World suggests that John Carew could be on his way to Fulham in the summer. The report says he'd fetch around £3.5million. Wouldn't be shocked to see him go, I must admit, but surely only if we are sure of a quality replacement or two? Wonder if they would do a buy one and get one free so that Emile Heskey goes with him!? Sorry!!!!
Also by Aidan Magee at the News Of The World there is an 'exclusive' that SO isn't an exclusive, it is old news and as far as I can see from what he says in his report, total conjecture. He says that Martin O'Neill will be leaving Villa in the summer. Ok, he might do, but as said, this isn't backed up with any quotes, sources or a particularly reasoned argument. Report:
You would also have to question where MON would walk out to? Celtic is one option, he was loved there and he said if not for his wife's battle with cancer, he'd never have left. He has already ruled out Manchester United and at his age (58) I would imagine the Old Trafford outfit would have ruled him out as well? Liverpool? Maybe, then again, they are in financial turmoil, how does he gain going there? Anyway, it is obviously a slow news day and they needed to fill a gap in the paper.
In the report, he also says that there are a couple of players, Ashley Young and James Milner both being linked with big price exits, who could raise top money, he also says of James Milner: 'From Manchester United, along comes Roy Keane and you think 'who was better - Roy Keane or Bryan Robson?' You wouldn't mind losing the toss. I'm not saying James Milner has reached that yet but he has the potential to be really brilliant.' Which is exactly why Villa HAVE to keep Milner!
That seems to be about it for press talk today.
