New day, new story.

This past year has been the most I've seen the villa and it's players mentioned in the papers.

So good or bad - it gets people talking about us
But to the opening statement - what do you think. Wil SG push him further into the 1st team especially when we lose players for AFCON

Could just imagine the fall out if he now signs for Liverpool.

I guess time will tell whether this is just more lazy journalism or something more concrete lies behind these stories. Interesting to read the rumours which are circulating around us spending big on 2 potential targets in January, I think we all get the defensive midfielder most of us have been crying out for someone of that ilk for some time so I understand that, what I don’t get is the urgency for a centre back and certainly not one who would cost circa £45 million plus (Pau Torres) who whilst a decent player on the ball is not the quickest. If we buy him for that kind of money he goes straight into the first team I presume in place of Mings which I have no doubt would unsettle him and we would lose his undoubted leadership qualities and I don’t see an obvious replacement when it comes to a captain either, whereas I would rather we spend big on a left back to challenge Targett who is very much hit and miss at the moment.

If Mings cuts his mistakes out he is as good as anything that would be available in January so i wouldn't waste money there. Left back is a good call along two quality midfield players especially if Dougies agent gets his client a move to Europe.
