A load of rubbish. Sorry, I mean rumours.

The latest load of tripe again links us to Joleon Lescott;


This is just a joke in my opinion, as look at the alternative clubs that are mentioned as competing against us.
We have Schalke, who will be in the Champions League, Portland timbers and Al Ain.
And then there’s apparently the mighty West Ham, who, given that Lerner only wants to pay minimum wage, will probably offer twice the money we would.
Let’s face it. Even though he’s a Villa fan, he just ain’t coming.
And suggestions to the contrary are, to me, a plain insult.

Then we have Wes Hoolahan;


He’s not a particularly bad player and indeed about Lambert’s level to my mind, but come on;

Promoted Leicester City are ready with a £2million bid should Norwich snub Lambert and Villa’s interest once again.

Seeing that the mighty Leicester outgunned us wages-wise for Albrighton, is it really realistic that this will happen?
Yes, there might be a slight advantage in that the player knows Paul Lambert.
Enough said, hence I don’t see him coming to Villa.

And then, we’re due to miss out on Jack Colback;


Good, in my opinion.
He’s even more decidely average than the way I’m seeing the club at the moment.
And that’s saying something.

    “Outgunned us wage wise”… Lol… Are we really still on this crap? Seriously. Albrighton isn’t worth 35k a week, I wouldn’t want Villa offering him that. We weren’t outgunned, Villa proved their intelligence by not offering the higher wages he wanted.

    Colback’s not near as bad as claimed either. Not exactly a great player, but good enough for Lambert’s crap style of football and would provide more good than harm if anything.

      Completely agree. Also think Colback is better than Albrighton. So if we can get him, good job.

        Seemed a quality CM at Sunderland and I’d be happy to see him here. Don’t see fans problem with him honestly.

          I do seen him a few times and awful player. A couple of makems I know one said he was average at best the other said he was useless and not bothered if he goes which says it all.

            Not really as you can ask a lot of fans of the same club about a few players that leave and they’ll give you different opinions. Like Albrighton for instance. Ask a lot of Villa fans, they’re pissed about him leaving, ask a few others like you or I, we don’t care that he’s gone. Doesn’t quite mean because a majority think he’s good enough for Villa, means they’re right.

    I’m disappointed that Albrighton has gone. It’s always nice to see someone come through the ranks and get into the first team. You couldn’t fault his effort either, but I did feel he was a bit hit and miss. £35K a week though? Not in my opinion. How much is Benteke on? The problem with paying Albrighton £35K a week is not just that he isn’t worth that, it’s the knock on effect it has with the other players.

    It appears we didn’t make any offer. That is surprising. I guess if the club knew he had been offered £35K they may have simply decided that was too much.

    It’s just another illustration of where we are. It is unlikely to improve until Lerner sells so we better get used to it.

            Vinnie Jones, Joey Barton, David Batty, Paul Ince, Danny Mills, Lee Hendrie. Anymore vile footballers you can think of really.
            And to top it off, Roy Keane as part of the backroom staff.

            No it’s because his contract is coming to an end and no one else will touch him. He only played 13 times in a poor west ham team says it all. Another michael Owen but not as high lye paid thankfully

            Not insulting him, I was simply trying to remember. He said something similar too it I believe is all. I’m all for him, though would prefer N’Zogbia to Cole, if we somehow keep both and would be willing to play an attacking style of football and having both, that would be great.

            Oohah, Cole works in an attacking style if we play like that. Didn’t work at Pool because they weren’t playing the way they are now, didn’t work at West Ham because they don’t play the way he needs to be played. Hopefully we something similar to the first season under Lambert with a pass and move style.

    Joe Cole – quite possibly the last name I would have expected to read, but he may have a bigger influence than when we signed (loaned) Pires? His fitness is the only thing that worries me.
