Alex McLeish has talked about the prudency of his plans for a summer rebuild and it’s being reported we are already only 48 hours away from announcing our first capture?
The Birmingham Mail are again carrying these quotes from the manager – they are old, he said them before the Blackburn game – but it looks a relatively slow news day so enjoy what yuou get 🙂
‘We have tried to do the homework right now because we are being prudent. That is why we have tried to scout as many good Bosmans as we can, but there are targets as well that cost money.’
McLeish adds that money will be spent in the summer, and clearly by his use of the word ‘good’ I don’t imagine we’ll be going for last payday journeymen but of course our definition of ‘good’ and who we sign is open to interpretation.
‘I definitely believe that Villa will come out of this well. We’ve already made some plans to bring player in.’
Now of course those quotes have given rise to plenty of speculation of late, there’s a defender who’s name I can’t spell unless I copy and paste it again (Exciting – Defender Linked), there have been some really vague links to Fulham’s Pavel Pogrebnyak and Schalke midfielder Jermaine Jones, not forgetting links to Bayern’s Olic that was discussed on the forum, and of course the most recent one being (McLeish To Go Wylde).
However the Mail state that the player who the club hope to announce and sign a pre-contract with within the next 48 hours remains unnamed and unknown – even amongst the rumour mill.
The mind boggles…could this be the wierdest way of announcing Carlos has signed a new contract?
