Unoial Villa News...



As you would expect, news if pretty thin on the ground and a lot of it centers on transfers:

31-year-old Martin Petrov is available on a free after being released by Manchester City and apparently Villa are interested along with Spurs, Everton, Bolton, West Ham and pretty much any other team you choose to pluck out of thin air I guess! Full details: A Free Signing Anyone? AVFC Press Transfer Talk

The Express claims that Spurs boss Harry Redknapp will bid £22million for Gabriel Agbonlahor. Gabby Agbonlahor To Spurs + Other Transfer Talk

The papers are a bit stuck on the James Milner transfer rumour at the moment, the price is alarmingly going up and down by the day though! The Daily Star today claim that Manchester City will bid a final £27million in a take-it-or-leave it attempt to get the England midfielder. Yesterday it was £25million and a few days before it was £30million. What is the lad doing in training at the World Cup for his price to be so up and down!?!?

35-year-old Aston Villa keeper Andy Marshall has confirmed to the Sunday Mercury that his contract won't be renewed. Marshall was taken on last summer on a one year deal to offer cover but has seen his time spoilt by an ankle injury. He said: 'I`ve enjoyed my time at Villa but I`ve been released now and I`m looking for a new club - I still think I`ve got a few years left in me. I`m keeping my options open but I want to stay at a high level and it would be nice to be in the Championship.'

James Milner was withdrawn from training yesterday following a temperature, sparking additional concerns that there is a bug travelling through the England camp. Latest update on the official site is Milner is still unwell: www.avfc.co.uk

Bit of a struggle to think of polls at the moment so the last one simply asked, following all the press speculation linking us to him, Robbie Keane? In a straight yes and no vote the results were: Yes please 65% No thanks 35% Which has led to loads of comments: Robbie Keane - Yes Or No Poll Results

Fieldy: Barry Bannan has admitted that he would be delighted to go back on loan to Blackpool next season as opposed to being a regular in the reserves. The 20 year old has recently signed a contract extension with the Villa so there's no indication he is unhappy at B6, just simply that he enjoyed his first team action whilst away and if he's unable to break into the first team properly, or be considered for the first team next season his progress would be better aided by returning to the Seasiders.

Thought for the day: I treat my girlfriend like a Goddess. I'm an atheist so I ignore her.
