Another mystifying chapter in the history of Aston Villa as the official site announce that David O’Leary could start some transfer activity next week.


This activity will be outwards as Mathieu Berson, who was chased for six months and lauded as the second coming, only to be consigned to the reserves then shipped out on loan, will complete a permanent move to Auxerre.

  • I guess Ian Broomfield is involved now in the selling of players, to no doubt somehow help justify his inflated salary. After all, whats the point of him jetting around Europe or driving the length and breadth of the U.K., knowing full well that its a fut
