ITK: Manager Announced Tommorrow + Transfer In

ITK: Manager Announced Tommorrow + Transfer In

I have it on very good authority from a trusted and proven source inside the club (cannot be revealed of course for legal reasons) that due to Ajax accepting a Manchester United bid for Luis Suarez without his go ahead, Martin Jol has handed in his resignation at the Dutch Club in a move to be made the next Villa boss. He has agreed in principal a deal that will keep him at Villa Park for three years picking up £3.5m per season. He's set to fly to Birmingham tonight to finalise the deal with all that's left to be completed is a compensation payment to his former club.

And as his first act as manager, despite not yet being official, he has given Randy the go ahead to complete the already in place signing of Robbie Keane from Tottenham for a fee between £6-7m which will be completed before the deadline closes. So there we have it. We've got the manager many have wanted and also signed the striker we've been crying out for.

Not a bad days business really.

Now for the fun part...

In case you haven't noticed, I've made it all up. Yup, every stitch.


Because I'm sick of people quoting 'In The Know's' and then so many Villans taking it as gospel and debating it till the cows come home.

The fact is anyone that has an IP address and a keyboard can make up a story and quote ITK to give it credibility. Some do it because they foolishly believe it themselves, some to get hits for their respective sites and some just for their own jollies.

Either way it doesn't change anything. In a business where information is money such as this do you really think Randy, The General or Paul will tell anyone anything due to this risk?

Didn't think so!

We're lucky here at Vital Villa because we've a man at the helm in Fear who is very much a traditionalist and even if he does come across some information, he believes the club, after all their hard work arranging these deals should be able to be the ones to reveal them and we're spared the constant stream of bull but when you go on NewsNow it's a constant stream of ITK bull.

After all, out of every single so called ITK you've read about how many of them predicted O'Neill's departure before the club revealed it.

My point... don't believe everything you read. (unless it comes from the official site)

30/08/2010 18:11:00
It would be brilliant if this actually happened now that u said its
30/08/2010 18:22:00
OMG! I was reading that thinking this looks good, But then my hopes were dashed, In all fairness its true what you are saying about people believeing anything.
30/08/2010 18:30:00
as pathetic my life is that i took time to read this, you actually took time to write it. for shame!
30/08/2010 18:32:00
Well to get you back I think we should all debate this until to cows come home
30/08/2010 18:35:00
Bloody ell, you even got me then! Agree with the point though, some of the 'itk' stuff which then hit the press as 'fact' has caused no end of work and 'damage' at the club. Thanks for the compliment as well. I sometimes do burst to say something but also do think that things like kits, sponsors etc should be announced by the club as it is them doing the work, so why spoil their fun bit in the announcing etc!

Well, my flabber was ghasted with that... thought something radical had happened! lol Nice one! (And we promise not to do another one this summer readers, honest..!)
