NO Keane? Good. Pienaar? Good. Transfer Talk

NO Keane?  Good.  Pienaar?  Good.  Transfer Talk

Putting aside the fact I`d not give Eck a penny to spend, I`d give Eck the big heave ho... we have some transfer talk.

The Daily Mail say that Villa are interested in South African international Spurs midfielder Steven Pienaar.

The 29-year-old, who joined Spurs from Everton, is said to be interesting Villa, Sunderland and a return to Everton.

Apparently they will want around £4million which sounds a bargain to me to be fair.

Also linked again to ... ahem ... Fulham's Damien Duff and Blackburn's Keith Andrews.

A BBC report said Villa can`t agree personal terms with Robbie Keane so hopefully that loan move won`t happen. The report has since changed with that removed though. DOH! Utter rubbish for a Club this size to be looking at loans. Sorry, we are Aston Villa, we expect to be treated as such.

The People say that Darren Bent would jump at the chance of joining Liverpool. I bet he would, save being made to stand up at the one end of the pitch all on his own!

Keane currently training with Spurs the BBC say. Surely he'd be training with us if he was interested? Maybe not, don't know, don't much care in all honesty!

How desperate does the Villa look? If Bent goes thats it for me. The club wont get another penny from me until things change!

Yep, we are deffo turning into the next B'Ham City. Pienaar, Duff and Andrews? All ***** poor players that cant make the grade in the top 8 teams in the Premiership. These links show NOTHING in regards vision or talent. The whole world to chose from and we rustle up (just like our manager search) the tried, tested and failed premiership rejects. We are just going round in circles...MON signed similar with Sidwell, Davies, Beye, Collins, etc Houllier is the only manager that was trying to move this club forward by shipping out these dross players...Now McLeish has come along and we are starting all over again. Maybe in another 5 years we will stumble upon another quality manager that can shift these Pienaar's, Andrews and co' off the books? Hopefully one without a dodgy heart next time. We are going nowhere with this buying the mediocre rejects policy..

Depressing. I understand that we have to balance the books. But since when was balancing the books a spectator sport? It isn't. I'm reminded of a Henry Ford story. He appointed an accountant who told him that factory A was making the least money and should be sold. It was. The factory B was producing the least money and should be sold. It was. Then factory C was producing the least and... Ford fired the accountant. No idea if this was true but it makes a good point. Cut too much and you remove the heart .. and in a footy clubs perspective the heart of the supporters too leading to falling gates, less money and a vicious circle. Just hope the board know what they are doing. Next years season ticket sales are not guaranteed.

It seems pretty pointless buying any new players to me, they'll end up playing like the rest in weeks. Can't find anyone to vote for as MOTM, why is there not an option for 'none of the above'.

"All ***** poor players that cant make the grade in the top 8 teams in the Premiership" Ahh, Steven Pienaar was a class act for Everton who continually finished above Villa. Would be a good buy for any club at 5mil, unfortunately, for 5mil, it means Everton is ruled out.

Pienaar is ****. Wasnt even a regular at Everton and had loads of inconsistent games. He cant get in the Spurs team(even as a sub) because he is carp, a bad buy from Redknapp, who is now desperate to get this oaf off the books so he can bring in more quality himself. Pienaar is your typical Blue nose signing, Aston Villa should be in a situation where we have scouts scouring the world to bring in new class talents, not reaping up the rejects to help Spurs get shot of their crap.

Mcleish shouldn't be allowed to spend anything. Get rid or at least save the money for a manager that has a clue.

What? He was Everton's player of the season in 2009/10 and a regular feature on Everton's left wing. Wouldnt call him a reject, unfortuante situation where he had to compete with one of the best Left midfielders in the world in Gareth Bale for his position. God Bless Villa fans, think our match is coming up soon, should be some fun :)
