Well, I know you aren`t meant to say anything nice at all about Alex McLeish for fear of being ex-communicated as a Villa fan, but I must admit, I like these quotes from him about the transfer window.
You see, many a manager would whinge and whine about the transfer windows and hate the fans gossiping or the paper talk as it inconveniences them.
He says it is great fun!
Having been asked about the Darren Bent to Liverpool rumour, he says King Kenny (Saurez will not walk alone... ahem) told him personally there was no truth at all in it.
Then added: 'It's not frustrating. It's just the window. It's good fun. I'm not frustrated by it. People like to speculate, social networks, it's a field day."
It certainly is. This site (and indeed the Vital Network) stats go through the roof in January and then again, at the time you would think we are at our quietest, in June and July, all for the transfer speculation!
He says there has been no contact from anyone about Darren Bent and that Bent is on record saying he wants to stay.
LOL... at this bit:
'I have spoken to Kenny and he said there's nothing in it. He said - just because Mark Lawrenson said something it doesn't mean it's true."
And then onto transfer talk?
Well, I can`t see much for today, only that the Robbie Keane deal seems set to go through.
McLeish said: 'There's red tape and it's about cutting through that."
It could all be done by Monday morning if the right clearances happen.
