Danish Defender To Save Our Bacon?

Danish Defender To Save Our Bacon?

Only a tiny snippet so far today for transfers.

The Daily Mail say that Villa are interested in 27-year-old AZ Alkmaar`s Denmark defender Simon Poulsen who is also wanted by Ajax.

Wiki says: Simon Busk Poulsen (born 7 October 1984 in S√łnderborg) is a Danish professional football player of Nigerian origin, who plays as a left back for AZ in the Dutch Eredivisie championship. He has played nineteen games for the Denmark national football team.

See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simon_Poulsen

And we also have a few quotes from Villa CEO Paul Faulkner in The Birmingham Mail.

He says they know the squad will need freshening up with comings and goings saying now Lambert is in place, the transfers are the "next order of business."

"You want to get at that sooner rather than later - the earlier we can get things moving the better - but, equally, the transfer window doesn`t shut until the end of August so we will use all the time we need. It`s about being smart in your moves, being able to scout well, having freedom and taking some chances."

He also says that Lambert will shake things up and won`t allow players to just tick over or drift.

"There`s absolutely no doubt there will be ins and there will be outs. We`ve got some good players here at Aston Villa already. Maybe last season, due to injury or just under-performing, it didn`t click."

Interesting times, can`t wait to see who is incoming but must admit, I`m totally intrigued as to who will be pushed out of the club.

I have to agree JF - if he's even half as good, reliable and professional as Mellberg or Laursen, he'll do me just fine.

Get Mellberg back. He still has it.

Sounds like the sort of player we need and experienced enough.

Yup, we'll take him, does he have a brother? A second cousin who can play holding midfield?

It's just a shame that Carew didn't share that usual Scandinavian attitude, he could have been a true Villa legend.

Mellbergs beard was well in form last night! 34 now though!

Agreed Villan, imagine Carew with the attitude and fight of Laursen or Mellberg? Blimey, he'd have been awesome.

Agreed Fear. They generally have a good attitude and adapt quickly to the British style of play and lifestyle, whilst usually resisting some of the excesses of our culture.
