Andy Johnson & Danny Guthrie?

Andy Johnson & Danny Guthrie?

It's being suggested that Alex McLeish 'fancies' Fulham's Andy Johnson and Newcastle midfielder Danny Guthrie for summer moves.

The Mirror suggests that Johnson has been added to McLeish's summer Bosman list, with the striker still yet to agree terms on a new deal with the London club.

It's been an average season for Johnson looking at the stats, with 11 goals this season but despite his England caps and lots of hype a few seasons ago, would he really offer us at 31 anything we don't already have with Gabby?

There's even less to the Danny Guthrie link, short of him being out of contract at the end of the season.

Oh well never fear, at least Cisneros wasn't mentioned this time!

I assume this is the sign of the times for you, for a while at least. on the positive, they are reasonable players that wont cost a penny in transfer fees and are probably not going to break your wage structure if they do sign.

Sounds like we are on the way to building a really solid championship side.

Depressing ey oxfordspur? Unfortunately this is what awaits us from now on, it was expected when the board appointed an average manager, now we are targeting average players like these two. Wouldn't mind the other lad from Fulham but Johnson? Don't care if he is free or not, if he doesn't improve the squad, and he affects youth development what is the point?

Two decent links, last time I checked we were *****, yet nobody but the elite is good enough for us.

Not really Lerneravfc, i no they are only links but Andy Johnson especially is just an extremely average/poor player, can any Villa fan really say they would want him? I no it's paper talk but i wonder where the ambition has gone with some folk.

I would take him yes, who else have we got? We need to be realistic, we flirt with relegation and have no money. This is the level of player we are in for unless we find a gem from abroad. I think he's been very good at fulham.

Great more journeymen, not guthrie but will he improve our current team? I think not and we will finally be rid of Heskey only to replace him with WHO Andy Johnson! Lerneravfc do you really want him here only to push Weimann down the pecking order? or maybe your like ECK and see him as a replacement for Heskey in Midfield? I suppose our ambition can only match our managers, avoid relagation is a success for him how depressing...
