Vlaar In... Collins To West Ham

Vlaar In... Collins To West Ham

As expected, with the hopeful arrival of Ron Vlaar Villa will now move on James Collins.

It appears from press talk that Collins is going back to West Ham and is due in London today for talks with the Hammers. So, he could be facing us on the first day of the season!

The Times midlands correspondent Peter Lansley on twitter said:

@LansleyTimes Expect #WHU to confirm they've agreed a deal for #AVFC's James Collins shortly

Ron Vlaar meanwhile, according to a twitter from Mirror report James Nursey, is having the second part of his medical today and as I have said, official confirmation could be made by Thursday of the signing.

Hutton is in talks with Stoke according to The Mail

Great news, but Hutton is the priority player we need to leave!!!

Whilst I think we have all become tired with them, Collins, Dunne and Warnock were in the same back four that finished 6th more than once... they all arrived together and were the backbone of those high finishes. It's all very well wanting a fresh start with players, but sometimes its better the devil you know...

Time to toss our entire defense out (Collins, Dunne, Warnock, and Hutton) and buy some quality, hungry replacements. Vlaar is a good start.
31/07/2012 16:23:00
Hutton and Warnock need to go i think... so who else can we be expecting? i really hope we get a new hungry Striker! is there any truth in the Guidetti rumour?
31/07/2012 15:29:00
I'm surprised Hutton hasn't found another team yet. Collins was good when we were doing well but was quick to drop his head and effort when things weren't so good

I for one would love to see Clark and Baker get some games together. The last thing we want is another Cahill situation. This makes great sense, as a club we have held on too often to players when we know they will be squad players on big contracts. JC is also pretty injury prone and error prone! Yes he gets in some great blocks but anyone who has seen him and Dunne must agree they are both great for 98% of a match but the 2% they are shocking always leads to easy chances and usually a goal or two... Good business

Villa 4 Ever, he seems to have a a bit of a history with injury, maybe it's all good now, but he can pick up minor injuries like anyone else, and when he does, who's going to cover him? We have no strength in depth at all, at least Dunne (or another relatively experienced CB), would fill the hole, knowing our luck, we'll have to go to the Etihad or Old Trafford with Clark and Baker as the CBs, promising youngsters yes, but not enough in that kind of situation.

Collins Dunne and Warnock i will be happy to see out the door of Villa, they have caused us trouble and played poor for two season now and event he tail end of MoN's last season as manager when we got tanked 7-1 by Chelski they were poor so get rid good to see one go now for the rest, oh and Vlaar is a good signing but Lambert needs more money to turn things around here we need some qualtiy aswell as bargains someone to get the fans excited and appetites wet would be the cherry on the cake for me, cmon Randy show Lambo the moneeeeeey UTV!

Badly needed to split Dunne/Collins partnership, of course it is on the cards that Colluins will sore against us from a corner at Upton park. COTVABU
