    Loads of Saudis on Twitter saying that Khaled Al Baltan could be the new owner of the Villa.

    Al Baltan has a net worth of over $3 Billion and spent over £500 million in 8 years at Al-Shabab before stepping down as their president. – Just throwing it out there.

    Actually like him as a player, Arsenal fans I know were big fans of his bar the game against Drogba which clearly destroyed his confidence, but a confident Senderos can do well in the back 4/5. At least we won’t have to see a Vlaar-Clark-Baker back 3, and have no one until he decided Donacien should be on the bench.

      looks like we will be set up to get a point a game and avoid damage limitation

        If we are honestly stuck with Lambert for 1 more season, then that’s not such a huge problem if we can average a point a game. Plus at least we have 1 senior striker coming back in Kozak, and then 1 more soon after in Benteke. Plus we’ll still have Bent.

        Some claim we had scouts at the England-Ecuador game to watch a Left Winger who unfortunately never made it on the pitch, an Ecuador player.

    Just when you think things couldn’t get any worse, this happens……. run out of adjectives for the shambles that AVFC has become.

    I think expect more of the same whoever’s on a free & loans.there will have to be some very clever deals done if we are going to avoid the drop we need at least 6 players with some PL ability.maybe I should wake up & smell the coffee.but give these players our support &don’t knock them before they’ve even kicked a ball for us.

      After thinking about the deal for a couple of hours I think I was a bit too harsh on him. Who knows maybe Vlaar and Senderos could actually do well together.

      He’ll be playing in the World Cup so I’ll keep an eye out for him

    If Lerner was close to selling the club this type of deal just would not happen !
    I’m afraid next season looks like more of the same. A STRUGGLE

    To be honest, I’d prefer a pairing of him and vlaar, or at least have him as back up, ahead of Clark and Baker when Okore os fit again.

    Vlaar and Okore with Senderos as backup – Sounds soooooooo much better than Baker or Clarke. Even if he’s prone to a calamity here and there, its a slight improvement.

    We could sign Fabregas and there would be negatives. He’s too short, he’s right footed, his hairs out of place – Blah blah blah

      Remember when we were beating arsenal and Fabregas came on with about 20 minutes left even though he was injured and single handedly destroyed us? Awesome player.

      u dont half talk crap helenius. No one would moan if we signed someone of fabregas quality. We moan because we dont get anyone who is quality.

    Senderos is very poor, everytime i seen him hes pulling a cart, u can’t have vlaar and senderos as the two centre backs we would be murdered for pace, if clark and baker aren’t up to it after two seasons, then they will never be ready,

    much prefer 2 beef up midfield, somebody who can see a forward pass, someone 2 unlock defences, senderos is a back up player,

    I’ve gone off Vlaar ever since the Hull game.
    He is supposed to be our captain / leader on the pitch and at the very least the organiser of our defence.
    How on earth Rosenior was left with so much space from a freekick is beyond me.
    We all knew what was going to happen well before it happened except for our concrete Ron.
    He should be the one making sure our defence is organised and players picked. He is to quiet to be our captain and an average player at best. Sad thing is he is one of our better players.

      Agree never rated him as everyone knows. Thought he did better this season but since the Chelsea game he’s been awful

    Cant say i rate Seneross at all, but would I rather have him than Baker or Clark, I guess the answer has to be yes. Bad times.

    First Senderos, now Joe Cole! I know we asked for experience, but by that we didn’t just mean old!!! I hope they both prove me wrong and become Villa legends…
