Ha, it is the cock and bull season, sorry, I meant the transfer rumour season! It won’t be long before we are linked with every player except the ones we actually buy but in the meantime, the rumours are slowly building.

According to the People we are after £4million rated right-back Marcos Angeleri the 26-year-old plays for Estudiantes de La Plata and is also an up and coming star for the Argentina national side.

The paper claimed Lazio, Atletico Madrid and Sevilla were also tracking the player. The one bit that interested me was the fact he can also play in the centre or at left-back, blimey Martin O’Neill could have a field day moving him about! :o)

Here is an expansive compilation of his highlights:



Quality, get him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh, if you want a more serious clip, he also scores!



Roughly translated, the commentator is saying ‘corr blimey, look at the little guy go, what a good goal, boys in the park, jumpers for goalposts isn’t it?’

The People also claimed at the weekend that Spurs want to offload former Blackburn winger David Bentley. We are again linked with the player who we bid for last summer only for him to choose his boyhood team Spurs. However the move hasn’t worked out for him and the papers are putting 2+2 together and linking Villa with a second – perhaps cheaper (!?) – bid for the England player. Everton and Atletico Madrid are also linked. Hey, I might as well add a couple of teams as well, think this is the way that you do professional reporting, so here goes, apparently Stockport County and Lincoln City are also interested. Don’t worry, I’ll get the hang of this journalist stuff one day.

  • he has too much hair, I don’t like people with too much hair, in fact in my bald state, I don’t like anyone with ANY hair!

  • here is a list of players i’d submit to o’neil from clubs that could be relegated this season:

    hull: michael turner, geovanni(?)
    newcastle: sebastien bassong, myfanwy martins, michael owen(?)
    blackburn: christopher samba
    middlesborough: tuncay(?)

  • Upson, Naughton, Defour, Downing, Owen, Sturridge, Johnson, Richards in……..out Salifou, Harewood, and sadly I think but really hope not…Gareth Barry and Martin Laursen. Long loans to the Championship for Bannan, Albrighton, O’Halloran and Osbourne. Am I just a little too optimistic?

  • I think we must make a serious bit to get Owen. I’d put hin on a £40k per week basic and make his wages up with bonus (matches/goals/asists/etc). If he comes and scores 20 goals plays 40 matches in this day and age I’d give him £80-100k. Lets face it if Owen came and scored 20+goals with Carew and Gabby chipping in we’ll be very close. Better still a fit Owen is more than capable of 20+goals. Newcastle could be down in a few week and a early signing like that would be a big signal of intent (Barry look on). Add Defour, Downing, Johnson and a serious Centre back and leftback. The new season would look very hopeful. We need to spend ~£50m. A must must is early signings. I’m hoping Barry cares more for World Cups than sitting next to that fat spanish <|_|NT watching Gerrard and Alonso running around.

  • It is starting to look that over 38 matches Villa are about 10points short of 4th place. We need a slightly bigger squad but more importantly we need to improve the squads collective quality (sounds good!). Did Heskey Sidwell and Shorey do that? Umm.. Good night all!!!

  • Well it looks to me like MoN is already making excuses for another pore transfer window,

    has anyone else read in the paper today that he is saying we cant compete finatially with the big 4 plus some others? a statement like this so close to the window is a little suspicious if you ask me

  • The Fear, i thought something was up on the Vital AV site to make you post a comment at Vital Spurs. I’ve found a thread on summer transfers what a surprise!
    So are you guys interested in adding Darren Bent to your possible acquisitions list?

  • lol, no mate, I travel about a fair bit, I have all the sites on rss feeds so I can keep up with what other teams are up to as well (and what the eds are up to! LOL)

    Not sure about Bent, he seems the sort that MON might go for, young, English etc. Certainly hasn’t worked out for you guys and he seems to get slated a fair bit by Spurs fans but at the right club it might be different for him? Why do you think he is so unpopular at White Hart Lane? Do you also think Bentley will be gone? Thought he was a great signing but again, it just doesnt’ seem to have worked does it?

  • I would have Bent at Villa, and if buying Bentley meant Milner would be playing in the middle next season, then I would be happy to see him replace Barry.

  • The Fear, this is Bent’s 2nd season at Spurs, so he has had enough time and enough opportunities to settle in and win the fans over. With the amount of chances we create even given the poor start we had Bent could have easily scored 5-10 more goals. For every one he scores he misses 3 or 4 that are just as easy. Incidentally how is Ashley Young’s form? We have been after a left side player for maybe 3 years now, can we do a swap Young for Bent!?
