The ninth instalment of our summer long gossip column!

We’ve already had nearly 3 million (ahem) rumours, arguments and links!

So Who Will Villa Sign Pt 8 – Click Here

Getting a bit depressing all this talk and not being able to update the threads with new players. Lets hope by the 10th the ‘in’ column will exceed the ‘out’! We need at least one big name to put down a marker for the season surely?

Anyway, here continues the rumours thread on the front page. See a story linking us with a player? Share it with us all. Heard a tenuous link, or seen a player around Villa Park? Let us know! Oh, and although I’ll do my best to announce incoming players as soon as possible, if you hear of a signing before I do, wang it on this thread as well.

The January thread ended up with nearly 2000 article comments, spaced over several articles. This summer one so far has over 3500 comments!

So Far.

  • As I have said and got slated, I think its very disappointing, I dont see any one coming in before the Liverpool game and that is wrong. There is no way we should be in this position. MON has made a big mistake in not sorting this out.

  • well I don’t like to say, but I feel quite smug, I did say things weren’t going to plan 8 weeks ago, but was hounded by the ‘let MON sort it out brigade’ and ‘he knows what he’s doing brigade’ gotta say I think he’s dropped a b4ll4ck, and your right christo harewood was never on our radar, making one signing with 3 days till kick-off, very poor indeed could do better!

  • None of us have a clue and listening to MON`s comments over the last 2 days neither has he…..mmmm…..i don`t feel smug but still disilussioned.

  • gordon has signed for sunderlan according to his local radio station ffs,dont believe this!

  • dont know mate, but meant to be on talksport 2 now,check our forum thread. hope it aint true.

  • I think guys that we all are massively disappointed, but come Saturday at 5 we really need to get behind the club and MON.He is still the best manager for our club at the moment. I just hope his poor summer dealings dont haunt us to much this season. What price one of Gavins super strikes against us and a Ridge goal??

  • Stating on SSN that he has agreed personal terms with Sunderland. This whole thing doesn’t make sense. He was supposedly heading to B6 today for talks. If the club are talks with him I think they should have confirmed this to the media.

  • Has been confirmed on Talksport, states 5 year contract. What the F**k is going on. I’m p***ed off with this now. How can we lose a player to Sunderland ? We’re a laughing stock now, disgraceful.

  • Notthedougellisstand – wait for the rest of the reports to come through – even thpo i have a real nasty feeling craig is staying up north um still gonna hold faith. MON can do this!

  • I know it’s been said but I’m going to say it anyway – only signing one guy is disapointing but what makes it worse is letting – ridge, maccan, davis and hughes go without first having replacements. I don’t care about ‘I want to leave’. statements from this players. It should be the club first and their desires second. I’m not going to criticise MON but it’s not the way the majority of us thought he’d handle the pre-season. I feel a bit LET down by all the hype coming from the club at the end of last season. I just hope we can survive the first three games without any injuries. This situation should never have happenned.

  • give me links and ***** and then i will believe – i wont follow some 2 bit radio call in show
