'One mega money signing'

Post  Jay.P.A on Sun Feb 12, 2012 12:00 pm

From todays papers:

Daily Star on Sunday: Alex McLeish has indicated Aston Villa may make a major summer signing - despite the club's tight budget. Villa's American owner Randy Lerner has ordered under-fire McLeish to cut the first-team squad's excessive wage bill as soon as possible. But although financial resources are limited, the Villa boss is refusing to rule out splashing some serious cash come the end of the campaign.

Sunday Mirror: Alex McLeish has been given the backing of Aston Villa owner Randy Lerner to make one mega-money signing this summer if he wants to. Billionaire Lerner has ­promised McLeish he has his long-term full backing, despite the protests from a few fans planned for Villa Park today. The pair have held a series of planning meetings for next year, and while Lerner is ­sticking to his insistence that the club's wage bill must be cut he has made it clear he does understand the need for star names.

Sunday Mercury: Alex McLeish insists Aston Villa will be in a healthy enough financial position to sign star players again this summer. McLeish has been responsible for implementing a "no pain, no gain" approach to reducing the club's huge wage bill. But the Villa boss is convinced he'll get to a level where the claret and blues can once again attract and afford big players.

So, who should he sign? I assume you'd all want a striker.

Not while we have Bent and Gabby.

I think a CM of real quality is needed.

That's known to us Hammers as Sam Syndrome, a fondness for signing players you've worked with before.

Will you still have Bent? I thought he was want-away, or have I got that wrong? Anyway, who would you want?

He has constantly said he has no intention on wanting to leave and wants to stay at Villa.

Who knows if that is his true feelings but the club don't want to sell and I'm not sure anyone would want to bid enough for him.

Bent wants to stay as long as he's not forced out. I'd agree with Avfc, we need a top, top CM. We also need some fullbacks

Probably 10M will mean a mega signing not 20M etc

Hopefully we will have a new manager in place by then.

Nothing wrong with our defence we aint top od the npower because we have a shite defence are we eh sherlock
it's west hams inabilty to score the goals from the numerous amount of chances that they are making thats making life difficult for sam.

If anything with tomkins playing the way he does, all ne needs is some body experienced enough and they would make a formidable combo and help green no end

one mega money signing funded by the sale of D. Bent!! The last thing Villa need is a mega money signing anyways. We need a new back four for a kick off.

It's very very inconsistent. The sheer amount of injuries we've got doesn't help. Also, Winston Reid. Still, so long as we're back in the Premiership at the end of the season, we could have Christian Dailly back as a centreback for all I care.
