The Aston Villa January Transfer Thread

The Aston Villa January Transfer Thread

I've put it off until now but we'd best stick with tradition and have a transfer thread on the front page!

You know the score, put in rumours, sitings (!) and wishes in article comments.

We also have the forum thread: January Transfer Window Talk

Don't like any of the rumours of loans, that should not be what Aston Villa are about! Wouldn't mind Pineaar from Spurs though PERMANENTLY though!

If Collins goes then we should get Samba and make him captain. A creative midfielder and left back to replace Warnock. Keep Cuellar at RB and get shot of Hutton. But in truth if we get rid of AM then this should be a "who's the next manager thread". I don't want to see AM spend what we don't have. UTV.

I have had time to think about it and feel we need a younger manager in charge.........like Brendan Rodgers for example who has Swansea playing good football. Tbh, anyone other than Eck get's my vote. It's no good talking about transfers when the man cannot set up a team to win ffs!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brendan_Rodgers Humble beginnings and has learned from "The Special One". Maybe bring Nathan Dyer with him as he looked handy the other day.

1969 would love Rogers in charge but unfortunately our opportunity for that was missed in the summer.

I'll echo the #mcleishout sentiments and add Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the next Villa manager. Just won the Norwegian championship with Molde.
