N'Zogbia Bid In? Milner Returning To Villa Park?

N'Zogbia Bid In?  Milner Returning To Villa Park?

Vital Wigan have a nice exclusive!

Vital Wigan understands that Aston Villa have made an official bid to the Latics for attacking midfield man Charles N'Zogbia. All the details:

The Mirror say that Villa are set to bid £14million to bring James Milner 'home` !

McLeish is determined to get the right supply to striker Darren Bent and sees the England and Manchester City midfielder as a prime target.

Yes please..!

The Daily Mail say that Stewart Downing will have to hand in a transfer request if he wants out. The report says the new Villa boss Alex McLeish wanted him to stay but now sees it might be better to let him go and that he`d go for N`Zogbia as a replacement.

The Daily Mail also say McLeish wants goalie Ben Foster and defender Roger Johnson.

The paper says that Downing departure would leave fans reeling but our poll at the moment is at 73% for the option 'if he wants out, get shot`. What would, surely, leave fans reeling, is if the money on sales isn`t re-invested!?

Yes to Milner, yes to N'Zogbia. If Downing wants to go, then no point keeping a player if he is not fully committed.

This is actually a dream come true.

Just explain to me why Milner would want to come back ? Sorry lads its just the events of the past few weeks have made me ...well , realistic .
26/06/2011 10:17:00
If Downing wants to really go then let him leave, but lets make sure we squeeze every penny out of Liverpool...fed up of not getting the best deals when it comes to our players, compared to everywhere else...N'Zogbia is a good player who I feel would do well at B6 & is was not far back he was looking at signing for McLeish at the Sty, so could be realistic...As for Milner, well go on then, he would come back & slot straight back in like he had never been away...not so sure this one is likely to happen though...!

Milner over Young every day of the week going off Young's performance for the last 2 years. Young 15-17m sold, bring in Milner 14-15m, Downing sold 20m, bring in N.Zogbia 10m, If N.Zogbia improves off last season could be a very good buy. For me i see our team just as good as last season, Milner as the link man to Bent, N.Zogbia left and Albrighton right, bring in a couple of other class signings like that and we can actually start pushing for top 6 again.

City are going to sell Milner who is a regular in the first XI for 9 million less than we paid for him? Oh sorry it's the Mirror! Must be true then.
26/06/2011 10:43:00
Milner will never happen, although I would absolutely love it if there was any truth in this story. N'zogbia wont be leaving for anything less than 15million. Is he really worth that price tag? If Downing hands in a transfer request it shows just the kind of man he is. It would be a disgrace after how much faith we showed him. If he wants out, get shot indeed!!!!!!
26/06/2011 10:46:00
P.s I believe Bannan would do a solid job in place of Downing!!!
26/06/2011 10:47:00
Timmsy i actually agreed with most of what you said until you posted your second one, Bannan is NOT a winger, don't care what anyone says about how he plays in Scotland.
