Sinclair on loan and Villa in for Ba? *UPDATE* 29.01.2015 17:26

It seems that Lamberts hardball has paid off and Sinclair has conceded to a loan deal with an option to buy at the end of the season. This is possibly the best scenario for us as we get the player we all wanted and we get a trial run with him to see if he still has what we all hope he does before we make any further commitments.
The word is that the medical has been passed which means an official announcement is due any time soon.

Now for some more exciting news, Aston Villa are apparently in a battle with Hull City (Yes, Hull City) for the 29 year old Demba Ba and I must admit, this is a very exciting prospect as I believe he would be the perfect partner for Benteke and a struggling team.

This is a very short and snappy post but I genuinely think that despite all of this negativity surround Aston Villa and even more so on this forum post the Tom Fox comments, I honestly believe that Aston Villa are at the beginning of something great and the light at the end of the tunnel is starting to appear. I don’t believe the club will be sold and once we survive relegation, I think there will be some serious investment in the club come the summer. It is no small feat ensuring players stay at a failing club, and even more so, bringing in decent players. Maybe I am naive, but I do honestly believe that this summer will see the start of a new era at Villa park.

Whilst i’m here making these wild comments, I think this is our year for the FA Cup as well. Now come at me people, tell me how wrong these thoughts are.

UPDATE

Just hearing that AVFC are attempting a late bid for MK Don’s Delle Alli. The 19 year old is currently at MK Dons and is being touted as one of Englands future prospects. It was understood that Newcastle was close to signing the player for 5million with him remaing at MK Dons for the remainder of the season but this is rumoured to have been halted by Aston Villas late interest.
5 million you all say? To make things more believable, the word is that we have lined up a 2million bid, with the option to loan the player back for the remainder of the season and then pay the rest off the fee come summer.

What do you all think? This transfer window is turning out to be very entertaining, lets’s hope some of todays stories reach an official agreement.

    can we put a game preview 🙂 up please

    feeling more positive about these type of games away to arsenal. not enough to slap um on my line on coupon but 9,1 we are a fair good price for a game we usually fair well in

    Just been watching BT sports not giving us hope for tomorrow, pundit’s saying we’re in for a bashing, I’m inclined to think we will give Arsenal a game. Draw for me 1-1 2-2. worst scenario 2-1 them.

      i never said we’ll win. most pundits and bookmakers give us no hope. but i think its far from a 9,1 betting game. i wouldn’t be comfortable betting gunners with a tidy lumpsum. villa have countered arsenal too many times. with more invention added, will only add to breakaway chances created by villa. all said i didn’t add us to my line i wanted too thou

        Yep Sunderland winning, Stoke winning, Man UTC winning, all bottom 3 are losing,

          Its great when you have to keep an eye out for the bottom 3 teams results.
          Still, watch us go in 2040!!
          The change of attitude from people on here is laughable.
          Bill, Nath, Mike, Giddy, BWS did you all sign the ‘Lambert out’ petition the other week?
          Mind you, we have beaten a second division side since then!

          1. mike January 31, 2015 at 4:24 pm .

            Yes I did but you have to accept that he won’t be gone now.

          2. GarethVilla January 31, 2015 at 4:50 pm .

            You don’t have to accept anything Mike.
            I have always been of the opinion that once you make your mind up on a manager you stick by that belief and don’t change your mind week-by-week.
            Regardless of what Tom ‘I know better than you lot’ Fox says, Lambert will never be a good manager whether he has £9m or £90m to spend.

    Well let’s face it Gareth, we’ve been at the bottom that long its nice to be 4th from bottom, Lambert out? is there one ? I’ll sign it.

    1. GarethVilla January 31, 2015 at 4:23 pm . Reply

      Yea the ‘Lambert Out’ petition link was put up on this site at around the time of the ‘protest’ before the Liverpool defeat.
      People don’t really think we’ve got a chance tomorrow do they?
      3-0 Arsenal, we haven’t scored in our last 5 league games (again).

      I would be a good manager with 90m to spend

  8. Dave67 January 31, 2015 at 5:06 pm . Reply

    I think all Villa fans are excited about the new signings myself included. Can’t see us getting anything tomorrow I hope we do at 14/1 in my local books I will have some of that. Lambert out
