    Soz the midfield is a priority to me,basically we haven’t got one.so what’s the point in bringing yet another striker in.they need the amunition to fire.yes poor performances upfront isn’t good,but hopefully with an improved midfield service to the forwards will produce the goals.i do believe benteke is a one season wonder now you can bite my head off.

      Midfield is a priority but it doesn’t stop us looking at forwards. It’s not as if the manager has been told he can only bring in one player who has to be either/or is it?

    Adam it’s clear lamberts vision of the young & hungry approach has fallen flat on it’s face.experience is the only way.the holtby link im not holding my breath on that one mate.

    Transfer windows amaze me – Not only linked with Hoolihan, Defour, Lescott and Holtby but now Samaras…!!! Imagining getting them all, it would make one hell of a difference. Although, according to sources at Norwich, they have said they REFUSE to do any business involving Paul Lambert, haha

    I have never heard a more incoherent Villa Manager. Prior to the last two Gorbals boys, Villa bosses could talk the hind leg off a donkey, so we knew what they hoped to do about strengthening the squad. With Lambert it seems we have no more clue than he has.

    Other posts have it exactly the midfield is hopeless and that is restricting the strikers. Delph is our best midfield player right now. Ouch! Anyone who remembers seeing Rioch, Bremner, Mortimer and Cowans play will know how far off the standard we have fallen.

    Talk Sport are saying we are talking to Man City about Lescott and willing to pay 6M..

    6M for a player with 6 months left on contract.. bit steep isn’t it?

      I think whatever happens this window I think we need to have a massive turnaround in the players we sign in the summer. I can see and have heard that there will probably be more loans than perms this window which will only mean that even if we do kick on after the window and put performances in due these loans, that we will only be back to square one again in the summer. So yes, go for loans to patch the wholes at the moment, but for Christ sake when It comes to the summer, buy some players with abit of class and energy! More signings of okores calibre please

      So true sir tel it’s all bollox unless someone signs in the dotted line then speculation is a waste of time. Utd are being linked will dalfour as well. Now let me think utd or villa. No brainer it’s utd.

        United were linked in 2011 & 2012, with Defour turning offers down – Not seen or heard anything this season. He’s not of the quality they require to get them back to where they were

        So far we have been linked to a player who will never be allowed to leave as its Lamberts old Club, Lescott who we can’t afford his wages but as he is a Villa fan are linked each window, a player who is being scouted across the continent and Daflour who United may be interested in……. Bullshit spin in the Window from Villa’s woeful PR Dept

          Spot on saddened I know for an absolute fact lescott won’t be coming because of his wages the same reason Barry wouldn’t. Hoolahan is a possibility because he is cheap but dalfour is complete and utter bollox like wanyama was in the summer. Definitely not happening trust me.

            I can’t think of another club in the Premier that filters out so much crap around window time, that rarely comes true, they really are just so far removed from the fans its unreal.

            I assumed these were all rumours, not official stories. Surely there’s more hope if they are all being linked officially?

    on the forward topic what happened to the giudette talk, that lad must be itching to get out and prove his worth rotting away in the city squad. last I heard stoke and swans chasing him, no mention of villa. I know we’re not keen on taking on young players from ‘top’ teams on loan but in this case with kozacs break I think it’d be a good move and fits lamberts ‘young and hungry’ philosophy coz the lad must be starving at the moment. and if it don’t work out nothing lost.

    I think hoolahan is coming in on a three year deal. He is not a world beater but what i saw of him last season he was very hard to handle. Not scared of running with the ball and putting defenders under pressure. Now Please Lamberk sign a fucking LB of some quality,

      Morgan…Bertrand is available. He is an excellent LB. He is just unlucky to have 2 internationals in front of him at Chelsea. Would be a great signing IMO!

    Disagree. We have one of the best centre forwards in the league, he’s just a little off form. Normally he would have banged in 3 at the weekend. We also have Weimann, Gabby and Helenius…that is enough forwards. We are desperate for decent midfielders, and if Vlaar cant stay fit, another centre back.

    We haven’t scored many goals is not because our forwards aren’t any good, it’s because of the service they receive. Also our formation and playing players out of position doesn’t help. Weiman and gabby, Kodak, helanius and bent eek as with bent are full on forwards that thrive on good service that we don’t give. Get a couple of wingers and 3 solid midfielders in and then we are sorted.

    Just been reading about Narki Wells, 91 appearance 42 goals plays for Bradford City, age 21forward, 5.7” do we need another forward? We need a midfield, winger, plus defender, what’s he looking for.
