Interesting story from the Mirror tonight.
They claim that all transfer activity at Villa has been put on hold and meetings with agents cancelled. Interesting to note this follows after James Nursey finally turned against Mcleish and wrote a damming article.
There are whispers around that Mcleish will go as soon as the season is over and now the mainstream press are picking up on this. I even saw Mat Kendrick query the future of Mcleish have the journo’s been told it is over.
In the same article they say Richard Dunne is fit for the West Brom game and it is certain he will play. Now last season I am certain Dunne and Freidel ran the team after Houllier was absent and not McAllistair. Dunne is a natural leader which we lack but his performance this season has been very poor.
Should he come back for the West Brom game, I am not sure but do we need a leader – YES We may need him if Mcleish is a dead manager walking and only manger in name only.
EDIT 00:30 – For the past two weeks I have heard rumours of Paul Lambert and tonight the Sun (LINK) and also the Express have broke the rumour. I have to say given the one source I think this is spot on, my Season Ticket could be renewed very soon.
