NO Transfer Panic At Villa

NO Transfer Panic At Villa
For goodness sake, will everyone please stop panicking? Great info sent to me from TylerVilla shows that the transfer window last season was the same, not much action until after the 17th and most action in the last 8 days.

Jan 2006

Date/Transfers made on that date:

1st, 2nd = 0
3rd = 2
4th = 4
5th = 4
6th = 1
7th, 8th, 9th = 0
10th = 1
11th = 0
12th = 5
13th = 3
14th, 15th, 16th, 17th, 18th, 19th = 0
20th = 2
21st, 22nd = 0
23rd = 11
24th = 0
25th = 1
26th = 0
27th = 1
28th, 29th = 0
30th = 5
31st = 13

Total transfers 53

So 34% of the transfers happened in the last two days.
55% in the last eight days and only 38% by the 17th of January last year.

In other words, there is plenty of time. We ALL know that players are required, that isn't just the fans, that is everyone at the club, the manager and the owners. But we should also remember that sometimes it takes one transfer to act as a domino for all the others, if one team get the replacement they want, then maybe we'll get the players we want!

Have faith!

I had another loony tune call me yesterday effing and blinding and asking if I'm happy now Ellis has gone, saying nothing had changed. Well, yes, thanks for asking I am happy and I have faith in the new guys (by the way loony tune, it is Redditch I live in, not Four Oaks anymore ya yellow bellied twerp). If we were in this position next season I might start to worry but not now ffs, they've not even started.

There also seem to be digs about the fact the Holte Hotel is being done up, the fans are being asked about a new crest, etc etc. We spent years moaning about nothing being done, now things are being done we are moaning. What gives? The re-development of Bodymoor and the Holte Hotel aren't at the expense of players and the possible re-branding or any other suggestion being looked at will be done via the Marketing Department, not the coaching staff, two or more things can be done at one time you know?

Right, rant over, lets not worry until the clock strikers twelve on 31st January!

Good artical, Villa have to bring players in, by the last week it may become a buyers market as clubs try to cash in at the last minute.

shows how little some fans now about the club, if they think nothing has changed. i hope you told ol' loony tune where to go. Good things come to those who wait. I look at it like this, we would have nothing to look forward to in transfer windows if herb was still there, except sub-championship panic buys like djemba djemba. At least we are now frustrated that nothing has happened yet because we know we can bring in good players.

i've had all sorts of calls over the last few years hybridvilla, I tend not to bother reacting these days!!! The best one was a death threat, might be the same chap as he is sure I live in Four Oaks, (which I did for 30 years) so I said I'd wait in for him !!! I just don't get the argument that nothing has changed and although we all want to win the league tomorrow, the major changes might take time and the major re-building will be in the summer. Now if we bought no one in Jan and no one in the summer, we'd then have the right to start moaning, but not now. It isn't as if we were going anywhere fast with the last regime is it?

I have been saying ever since the takeover that the biggest problem that we face is the fans. We moan constantly, we slag off our own players, nothing is ever good enough. This would be bad enough but we don't even turn up regularly unless we are playing one of the teams that we are aspiring to challenge. The campaigning against Ellis was understandable but any one whingeing at the moment must be viewed as a fan of the dildo salesmen purely on our sites to stir it up. keep the faith. Show some backbone. Get down the games and do our bit. The players despite the recent run of results are working their socks off. UTV

VOTH - I fully agree with you but it seems the same with all fans, not just ours, many posts on the Bolton site are slagging off Alladyce and they are 5th in the League.
