Elmohamady and Whelan in; Welcome! and a friendly tonight?

Well things are hotting up and it’s welcome to Elmo and Glen Whelan, who’s just been officially announced.
On the face of it they’re not the most inspiring signings, but I do agree that they’ll be coming in to do a job, particularly in Whelan’s case.
I’m not convinced where Adomah stands after Elmo’s aquisition, but it will be at least good competition for him.
And at the end of the day, these players haven’t bust the budget, given that
we’ve yet to sell anyone of decent value.
For that, read they’ll do a job and are cheap.

With that, I was talking to a Watford fan yesterday and I mentioned the Graham Turner friendly, which he informed me is tonight?
I’ve looked around as best I can with the poor internet I have and could only see that we were scheduled to play Bristol Rovers away?
Perhaps someone can confirm please?

Either way, I’m hoping both our new signings go straight in, if we are indeed playing, so we can get a look at them.

In other news, Elphick’s departure to Blues is looking on the cards, which should bring in a few bob.
And Veretout has reneged on St Etienne, in not bothering to turn up for a medical?
What’s that about?
Good riddance wherever he goes if that story’s correct; just the sort of mercenary we don’t need or want at the Villa, in my opinion.
And I hope whatever club he signs for realise just what type of player they’ll be getting.
If the story is correct, of course. We all know things are never what they seem in planet transfer world.

The good and bad news is that I’ll be back home in the early hours of Saturday morning, so at least I’ll be able to keep up better and maybe even get to see a stream before it’s back to the seven day a week grind in what’s about to be the busiest time of the year for me.

In the meantime, I still think we have another trick or two up our sleeves when it comes to signings.
Here’s hoping and UTV!

    Read that Gardner has not gone with the team to Germany. Either he’s injured or it suggests he might be one of those 10 (according to Dr T’s tweet) leaving the club
