Saw this and thought it would be nice to publish a bit more positivity on this bright sunny day! Picklefactory said in the transfer thread: I’m also looking forward to this season. There is absolutely no guaranteed recipe for success in football at any level, and even more so at the top level. We had MON spending fantastically and being backed by the owner to a ridiculous tune. We managed 3 x 6th places….but at what cost to the future of the club, when his pot of gold was taken away…he stomped off sans toys and assorted dummies…. See: A Happy Villan Says Keep The Faith

Been a long running rumour the last few weeks, but young defender Derrick Williams has now completed his move to Bristol City. See: Williams Completes Bristol City Move

Paul Lambert’s continuing transformation at Aston Villa Football Club is to continue in the upcoming months when the Summer transfer window opens on 1st July. See: Paul Lambert’s Revolution At Aston Villa – Part 1

Lambert’s priority after last seasons embarrassment of conceding a record 69 goals (despite Guzan’s heroics in goal) in the Premier League was to first replace injury plagued centre half Richard Dunne. 50k a week Dunne didn’t play once last season meaning Villa’s only experienced centre half, captain Ron Vlaar (out for 7 weeks himself) was without an experienced partner all season, forcing youngsters Nathan Baker and Ciaran Clark to step in.

New signing Nicklas Helenius has spoke about the quality of Jores Okore and he believes they can help each other play important parts next season. Helenius Backs Okore To Shine

Shhhhh. Bit quiet on the transfer front today. In fact, it is nearly 2 days since we`ve made a signging, bit of a disgrace really isn`t it?! Very slack only to have five so far!!! Tony Stenson at say that Spurs will offer £20million for Christian Benteke. See: AVFC Transfer Talk – Ireland Going? Benteke Link!

After news was confirmed that Brett Holman had his contract terminated by mutual consent, he not only confirmed his arrival at Al Nasr, he also said that without regret it just wasn’t meant to be at B6. In quotes carried by the 29 year old who joined us on a free transfer said.
‘The Premier League is a fantastic competition and I was at a great club, Aston Villa. They treated me really well, but it wasn’t meant to be there.’ Good luck Brett, your work ethic alone means you leave the club with the best wishes of many for your future career.

Kent Nielson has tipped Nicklas Helenius to succeed at Villa Park and he has said he believes he has all the attributes to be a fans favourite…. Former Favourite On Soon To Be Favourite
