Well it’s gone deathly quiet the last few hours in terms of Villa making any more signings before the window slams shut in just over an hour.
Earlier links to Manchester United’s Tom Cleverley died a wage induced death given what he was apparently asking for, and it’s said we pulled the plug on that a while back – which was what led to us putting in a late bid for Sergio Canales.
With him only joining Real Sociedad though last January, it was said he rejected the move as he was happy at the club and not looking to uproot himself again.
And well, since both of those links went quiet, so have the rumours, the anticipation and even the serial deadline day stirrers who are usually adamant we are in ‘late talks’ with a player despite it being common knowledge that they have moved elsewhere already, seem to have found something else to do with their time.
Without even a continued hint of a deal now or a link, it looks like our window has now closed.
Sky have updated little or note, if anything for over an hour and unless I dozed off they haven’t been back to Bodymoor Heath for quite a while now, so there are no rumblings there.
I think it’s time to relax folks.
One and half hours to go, if we haven’t heard a rumour yet, we can’t really be working on anything can we?
So we go with what we have and look to build on our best start to a league campaign in EIGHT years apparently which is scary on more levels than our performance against Hull.
With people to return from injury and others still to settle 100% and find their fitness, if and I know it’s as big an if as the reported wage of Radamel Falcao, we can repeat Hull on a more regular basis – that would do us this year wouldn’t it.
Watch me pop off for a coffee now and we sign ten players!
