From ‘MYSTERYMAN’ on VT
On Ireland -
We are in pole position
When asked if part of the Milner deal -
Seperate deal and it’s not likely to happen anytime soon unless someone else nips in and forces our hand . Don’t believe all this we got to sell Milner either for it to happen they were looking at him before Milner became an issue .
If Ireland is happy to come –
From the City end not Villa’s apparently yes but then again they told me that the deal for Milner was done at 28 mill and clearly isn’t . Also Onura ( Spelling shocking ) is interested in coming again from the City end .
From ‘Michael Porter’ on this blog regarding information a deal would be done today
I can confirm the only thing holding the deal up now is Irelands reluctance to join Villa. Mancini has re contacted O’Neill to re adjust the bid to include Shaun Wright Phillips – but O’Neill is playing hard ball & wants Ireland ! Contrary to reports yesterday, the meeting with Milner and his lagal team did not go well & he’s insistent on leaving Villa. There are 4 to 5 deals being held up due to the Milner saga. one is a huge deal for a striker.
I will post more as and when I receive the information – if requested !
On H&V – Dave Woodhall
Heard Liverpool have bid for Luke Young
From ‘Dexterblue’ on bluemoon
I was at a golf pro am a couple of weeks ago in Limerick and Martin O’Neill was there…I asked him if Villa were going to buy Ireland…We had a bit of a laugh about the number of grandmother he has and asked me if I was related to him!!! But before he left he got serious and said he thought he was an excellent player. I took it that thinks a lot of him as a player but would not be bidding.
Finally ‘Smetrov’ on VT has said
A friend of mine who knows a physio at villa – reckons we are prepared to pay £16m for Carlton Cole
Make of that what you will, but remeber this is real life and not FM, things are never that simple, with MON certainly not !
