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.' The player has played as an out and out striker and also as a midfielder behind two strikers and has 53 caps for the Socceroos.
