Bill Mills in The Mirror has a bit of a bizarre link. Remember we were always being linked with Republic of Ireland winger Aiden McGeady when he was at Celtic? Well, the link returns as he looks to end his 'Russian nightmare` following a £12million move to Spartak Moscow. According to this report, he is a target for Villa at a 'knockdown` price.
The report makes me laugh though, it says the 24-year-old scored over 30 goals in 180 Celtic appearances. Over 30 goals? Could the reporter not find the time to look exactly at his scoring record? Shall I? Nah, not bothered!
The People are linking Ashley Young to Manchester United in a £20million January move.
The reporter, Tom Hopkinson, claims that players held a meeting behind Houllier`s back to try to sort out the problems. Behind his back or not, I would hope they did meet and talk over their woeful form. I digress, as is my want.. well, my main want is to get this article done and then get ready for my beef dinner in Stratford Upon Avon but if I don`t stop digressing this damn thing might never be finished... where were we?
Oh yes, £20million. Sorry, if the player wants out he has the power, that is the way football goes nowadays. If Sir Alex Chewalot can`t get his target in January he`ll return in the summer. The report says with Giggs getting closer to the end of his amazing Premiership spell, Fergie things Young is better than Ji-Sung Park. Is he? Park looks quality to me. How many goals does Ash score? How many corners reach a Villa player? How many goals does he set up?
Hmmm, time will tell, as said, no matter how much sabre rattling the club or fans do, the players hold all the cards and with his contract only having a year left after this season, he`s in the box seat...
