Former Villa keeper Mark Bosnich has been talking to the Birmingham Post about our new signing Brett Holman. Bossie wants 28-year-old Holman to slot in and be the missing link for our midfield. 'I was thinking about Brett recently when Alex McLeish was sacked and I hoped that he wouldn't be affected. I hope he is going to be okay now with the new manager coming in because he`s a really talented player.' Full article: Bosnich In Praise Of Villa's Incoming Socceroo!

KMitch asked in our forum about next seasons expectations, Saying: Since apparently my expectation of a midtable finish is 'unrealistic' and could be 'damaging' to the new manager and the club, I guess I want to see what you all are expecting next season. Base your considerations on the fact that we have a 30 million pound transfer budget. I'm not even putting in the option for top 4, as I doubt anyone in their right mind could see us up there next season.

John Deehan, a man well known at both Carrow Road and Villa Park, has said Villa's ambitions to be challenging for Europe could have been key in Lambert's decision to move clubs. Speaking to EveningNews24 Deehan said Lambert's achievements will mean he has left Carrow Road both in their history books but also in their hearts but the lure of knowing where Villa aspire to be in the league, and the delights of European football would have been a huge pull: Deehan - Villa's Ambitions Key For Lambert
