    So does this mean we could even get a small fee for given? Fantastic if we could make a few quid and off load the wage

      No we give him a free to join Middlesbrough so im guessing as a free agent he can join anyone who will have him and we don’t get a penny. but we do save a bloody fortune in wages. so its still a good deal for us.

      The story actually says that Villa cancelled the last year of his contract [by mutual consent] – to leave him a free agent, so no fee.

    Marseille owner calling Villa a small club, says Gueye only chose us over them as a springboard onto better clubs. Well, he certainly sounds bitter about missing out on Gueye.

      The quotes I read, he didn’t actually call Villa a small club.
      He was referring more to West Ham and another Prem club I can’t remember.

      Either way, it makes no odds really, as sadly if you’re not in the CL, you are a small club, these days.

        Liverpool arnt in CL and still regarded as big club

    2. OohAhPaulMcGrath July 9, 2015 at 8:34 am .

      Probably true we are a stepping stone club these days no doubt about it

        And so are Liverpool, with Suarez leaving last year and Sterling this year. Then of course there’s Man U, De Gea off to Madrid. You could probably only name a handful of clubs that aren’t selling clubs really. That in itself is not Villa’s problem. The lack of success, and reliance on one or two players, plus not replacing them is the real issue I think.

    He has a point though, isn’t that what players do? How many players have left us or better clubs?

    I am intrigued by the Stoke move for Given. There he would be expected to mentor Buckland, and probably play 2nd fiddle. Begovic is obviously going, but where? Chelsea usually play the transfer game in the full glare of publicity, so it seems they haven’t yet convinced Begovic he will get enough of the games that matter as #2 to Courtois. I hope he is still considering a move to Villa and we pay what’s needed to get him. I don’t take a lot of notice of Guzan’s form for the US team because international football is worse than EPL standard outside the top eight nations.

    Mark Bunn….wow…what a signing! #Ambition

    1. Ardent Villain July 9, 2015 at 10:17 am .

      Presumably a back-up to Guzan???

      1. B6 July 9, 2015 at 10:23 am .

        Is Guzan in Sherwoods plans? I wouldn’t be surprised if he was back up to Steer or even our new number 1!!

  6. GIDDYVILLAN July 9, 2015 at 10:14 am .

    From begovic to now bunn,WHO????I suppose he’s a freebie possibly the incentive to sign him.

    1. B6 July 9, 2015 at 10:22 am .

      It’s the same crap every season Giddy. We get linked to all these decent players and end up signing Shit. Probably got him for 50k a week less I imagine.

      1. GIDDYVILLAN July 9, 2015 at 10:29 am .

        B6 my thoughts exactly MATE,like I previously posted the club seemed to be looking for a decent proven goalkeeper when actually they were looking for the total opposite & paying FUCKall.groundhog day springs to mind.

  7. B6 July 9, 2015 at 10:25 am .

    Or then again we will probably end up signing Begovic and selling Guzan!

    1. GIDDYVILLAN July 9, 2015 at 10:35 am .

      Not a hope VILLA wouldn’t pay stokes asking price,we’ll just canter along bringing in freebies.the GUEYE deals gone quiet getting a work permit takes this long?????hmmmmm

  8. saddened July 9, 2015 at 10:32 am .

    leaked all over the press we are interested in a £10m keeper – then we actually sign someone on a free – how bloody predictable.

    1. Ardent Villain July 9, 2015 at 10:42 am .

      Just have a feeling that this isn’t Villa’s last move as far as ‘keepers are concerned this window…

  9. GIDDYVILLAN July 9, 2015 at 10:40 am .

    Saddened yes MATE not only predictable but embarrassing,guaranteed alot more smaller clubs will be spending decent money on players.
