Joe Cole To Aston Villa?

Joe Cole To Aston Villa?

Not got a massive amount of detail on this but according to Sky Sports Joe Cole is set to have a medical and join Aston Villa on a free!

Great player in his day, but how have all the injuries impacted?

Looks like Lambert, after two dire seasons, has realised you need experience in the team, is this the right sort of experience?

Well, to be fair, we don't know the budget now Randy has lost interest and is trying to offload us, so difficult to say.

Decent edition under the circumstances. We need experience and he has it at the top level. It's about staying up until we get taken over now. If it needs to be done like this then I will accept it.

It's not going to get much better than this under the circumstances, so I'm happy with this signing. Fascinated to see who else we can get, it's like we're that team in Moneyball!

I'm out of things to say. Another experienced player coming in, when is it all going to end. This must mean a realisation that the fixation on playing young players without the backbone of older players was a mistake.

From a Kindergarten to a retirement home. Could this get any stranger.

As "the youngster" in a team he had pace and vision, the ability to go pass defenders, and a good shot. That's when we wanted MON to buy him. As a more mature player he will offer less of the above, his experience would be invaluable though. Not bad. Next? Well, who else is out there? Any suggestions, any once-world-class player/coaches. Please make a few suggestions.

Shoking News ! I'm afraid Cole past his sellby date some years ago as West Ham have found out - hence no new contract.

last season the policy was to sign young hungry players at a high tempo blah blah blah,now its turned full circle,now the policy is to sign hasbeens and injury prone players without a point to prove.senderos in my opinion is useless,he will fit in nicely with the calamity defence.joe cole basically is a game way from being injured and i cant remember the last decent game he had and that must have been at chelsea a long long time ago.riveting stuff who next i hear bendters on the radar.

Barry, Parker, Lescott would do the job andy. These old codgers can play the football and the youngsters can do the running.

Cole is a great signing if he stays fit, he can pass a ball batter than most of our squad and would play the role behind the strikers really well. 56 England caps and 10 goals shows he is a quality player and at 32 we can get a couple good seasons out if him if he stays fit. Even if he cant play full games he will be a great players to bring on for the last twenty minutes.
