Aston Villa Press Transfer Talk.. Bids DUE?

Transfer window talk for 29/08/2012

Mat Kendrick ‏@MatKendrick
Asked if there have been any enquiries for Warnock or Hutton, Lambert replied: 'No, none. I can`t do anything if the phone doesn`t go.'

Mat Kendrick ‏@MatKendrick
Enjoyable bit of guarded transfer banter with Paul Lambert tonight. Reporter: 'Are you close to Joe Bennett?' Manager: 'What, personally?!'

James Nursey ‏@JamesNursey
Lambert was coy on Benteke post-match at #AVFC but hopeful of landing Boro's Joe Bennett. I still think double swoop v possible

Mat Kendrick ‏@MatKendrick
Paul Lambert confirms, in the vaguest possible way, his hope that deals for Christian Benteke and Joe Bennett will go through #avfc

Timothy Abraham ‏@TimothyAbraham
Tony Mowbray said #Boro 'not in a hurry' to sell Joe Bennett but 'if the numbers were right' they would 'consider it'. #AVFC

The Express have a report saying that Villa have enquired about Kenwyne Jones that seems to fly in the face of what Paul Lambert has said:

Stoke striker Kenwyne Jones: Kenwyne Jones Interesting Villa? nope: No Defoe Or Jones Move

The Express & Star have some quotes from Paul Lambert about the latest two links:

He says on Bennett: "Hopefully something might happen on that. Has a bid gone in? Near enough. It`s like Benteke, there`s no point in me really talking about it until I know. I think it`s unfair on Villa, unfair on Middlesbrough, unfair on Genk and unfair on the lads themselves. I`ll wait and see. There`s no point me talking about it until something happens. We`ve just got to try and see where we are with Genk."

Meanwhile, Boro boss says on Bennett: 'We've had a few conversations with Aston Villa over the last few days, but he's not a player we're in a hurry to move on,' he told the club's official website. 'He's done exceptionally well for us and is a very talented individual. But like all players, if the numbers get to the right level, we will consider it.'

I agree with Astriel. I'd rather just have a load of quality, regardless of age or experience. If they're good enough to improve the squad then sign them.

Sorry for disagreeing fear!! Just off to wash my mouth out with soap ...... It won't happen again
29/08/2012 22:31:00
Reo Coker on a free anyone?

Mr Fear has 'Hanson syndrome' You'll never win anything with kids.
29/08/2012 21:05:00
I would imagine the two young lads coming in, not worried about experience really, potentially there's enough in there. We will know what we are in for this season after about 10 games. I thought we would start the season motoring under Lambert, new manager syndrom'n'all. Interesting to see how it pans out. Not gonna freak out just yet, but it hasn't been a good start. I love the look of him, but how is young Nathan's pace?? Not seen him in person, so don't want to upset anyone!! Go on the Villa
29/08/2012 17:56:00
Maybe I'm in the minority but rather than youth/experience... Can't we try sign quality? The problem at the moment is that we are short anywhere from 3 to 6 first team players... If the guy is 19 or 33 so long as he improves our side I am happy. Shouldn't we be rather looking at it that way?
29/08/2012 16:23:00
Agree with 444 re- Reo Coker he struggled to get a club last year and then helped to get Bolton relegated no thanks. Same applies to Barton I suppose for half time entertainment we could have him a Hutton kicking lumps out of each other other than that got no use for the guy.
29/08/2012 16:02:00
Know what you are saying avbornandbred but would you not concede it is all about getting the mix right? Have you ever seen a team full of 'kids' win anything without experience around them? I've not.

@LeeLindsay I'm just stunned mate, didn't realise there was any other opinion apart from mine to be honest. LOL... Barton? Exactly the sort of player we need, exactly the sort of character we don't. No, I'd not sign him!

Agree revolution, thought Warnock in mid might have done a bit for us to be honest, he also had the most interceptions last season (106) out of all defenders. Not great but not bad enough to be dumped the way he has been. However, obviously, they might know something we don't?

Sorry - did somebody mention Joey Barton? As far as I'm concerned, I wouldn't buy JB if we were threatened with bankruptcy. Better to have principles and integrity than any number of extra points on the board. Better to have no Aston Villa than to buy players like that.
