Can we sell players if we dont have a manager? I was looking for new blood at the start of the transfer market but with MON now gone looking to hold on to what we have. I am a fan of MON and would have liked to have seen him stay but I am a little excited by the prospect of a manager to see if he can better with what we have. I think we do have a good young squad and would like to see a better rotation of players, Delph, Albrighton and Del boy to play parts.

A new manager puts a different slant on things and players will have a fresh start to fight for their place in the team. We may not need any new signings yet, only time will tell. Thing is we don't have time unless Randy acts quickly and gets the next messiah in :-). Would like Hiddink but that's unlikely, same as Joachim Loew who has done a great job with Germany but again unlikely. Dream ticket may be for Sven/Beckham cos it opens doors for the club and the marketing kick backs are still very much there with Becks on board. Is Prince William still a Villa fan? We could ask him to pull a few royal strings and to get our man.

Kenwyne Jone shas turned down Stoke in a 5m move...we should get this guy AND yes, I do know I am the only person who rates him. Consider Jones, Keane, Ireland as our only buys and we wont have broken the bank at long as we move Beye, Reo and a few other on then it's all doable...bye, i'm off to work now.

Klinsmann could well be an option for us, available etc but does he want to get back into management?

Confusing messages about Milner/Ireland, but seems the deal hasn't been done so he could be a Villa boy tomorrow. Wonder what reception he'll get. Good I hope, he might decide to stay now MON has gone.

Just been reading about Arteta. Turned down the Megaclub Corporation aka 'Citeh', and Arsenal apparently. Okay, he's been well rewarded for it, but still tremendous loyalty.

Bang on the button aye 3-0, wish i had put money on it now. I won't get carried away but if we play in that manner every game we will do okay. Shame Milners going tho :-(

Ireland is our first signing which will be hopefully followed by a striker.

oops said that twice I am repeating myself again !! How long is Defoe out for ? he is in my dreamteam :( Keane would just be unavailable for Europa wouldnt he if he came ? tbh I think his best days are behind him although if we didnt pay too much he would score some goals

You guys need to get a manager in place before yours season implodes, what's the hold up McDonald doesn't seem to be up to it. I know it makes the season a little easier for us, but two years ago we were sitting at the bottom of the table on 2pts. Trust me that's not a good feeling, what exactly is Learner waiting on?

pongo, nah that's sky just reacting to the villa statement and trying to second guess. Young isn't for sale and spuds don't want him (according to their fans).
