Another Defender Wanted By Lambert - But Who?

Another Defender Wanted By Lambert - But Who?

The Mirror`s Villa dude James Nursey has said on twitter

‏@JamesNursey
Appears #AVFC Lambert still considering another centre-back despite signing Vlaar. This summer at Villa Park promises to be a serious refit

I think that is right, we need another one, especially as Dunne is a) out injured for 6-8 weeks b) ageing c) over the last 2 seasons, sporadic

But with the news that Gabby is also out for 4-5 weeks, do Villa not also need a striker?

Brede Hangelaand or Ryan Shawcross for me. If thats out of reach then whats going to happen with Michael Dawson now Spurs have that Jan Vertonghen chap? Kaboul had a good season so doubt he'll be on the bench.

Texiaria? Its Douglas man Douglas... Better known as Douglas... Hangeland good player but no sorry, Kjaer is fantastic and still pretty young but I cant see him leaving Wolfsberg, I like Shawcross but years of loft it forward under Pulis will hurt his chances with PL and he would cost at least 8m but more like 10m+... At LB I like the theory behind Cresswell young guy hungry for success so Id gladly have him, Poulsen looks ok but he's a bit awkward looking at times, Erik Pieters would be a better shout than him and would cost no more than 6m id say and he's the starting dutch LB and capable of playing CB... Jordan Rhodes and Wil Zaha are both young hungry worth a shout but if we signed one of them Id want to see the Fonz sold and another striker brought in... We need to look at strikers who are either technically good or capable of holding up the ball not just poachers like all the striker we currently have... We need a striker who can bring people into play and make things happen... Berba can do that but age and wages rule him out, say what you want about Carroll but you dont get 35m slapped on you if your rubbish I take him no problems... Somebody like Moussa Dembele would do...

P.Avfc...don't be so insulting. Hangelaand plays for Fulham and we are a very good draw for most Fulham players, bar Dempsey. If he was so good then Arsenal, ManU/C or Chelski would have snapped him up by now.
