The Boredom Of July?

The Boredom Of July?

The Boredom Of July?

July so far has been very boring for all us Villa fans, with a lack of transfers and losing our first pre-season game.

We are all wondering what Martin O'Neil is planning for the new season and what is going to be new.

I've already written an article stating about some potential targets. This time around I'm looking into what we actually got and what is coming towards us.

Pre-season has started with a defeat, but not to worry our next game comes against Bohemians and lets hope that this time we can win such a game. These small pre-season games may look rather pointless, but it could be the vital games where players such as Curtis Davies, Luke Young and Nigel Reo-Coker and show off there potentials.

If we could hang on to these three players it would be better for our team for rotation and depth. But more importantly its better to have them then at another club. Uefa's Europa League has kicked off, well the qualifying stage has.

And I for one have been looking into the results to see who could sprout us a shock and who would be easier to face during the play-offs. Its good that we don't have to start playing in July like Liverpool as those extra games will affect our squad like it has done for the past two seasons or more.

All of us have been keeping an eye out for the transfers and the speculation around our club. Many of us are saying done deal for Robbie Keane. I for one will not put on a smile until it is going to be made official.

Will James Milner go or stay?

No one can answer that apart from himself we have to wait for his holiday to end to find out really.

Or will McGeady join us at Villa? July has been a little disappointing, but the month is not over yet. So lets hope that we get ourselves a win in pre-season, an easy opponent in Europe and one or two new faces before the season starts it self.

not at all worried at the moment, we've not missed anyone as yet and think the next few weeks the transfer market as a whole will start to really take shape!
