Every article I seem to click on about any Villa player either signed or linked Noel Whelan seems to have a quote and opinion about it, its really starting to annoy me.

What the hell has Noel Whelan got to do with us or how does he know anything about us, he was a nobody who hasn't been seen or heard from in 10 years so why he seems the go to guy for a quote regarding us I have no idea!

I just came on here to moan about that. Headline was something along the lines of "Whelan rips into new Villa signing", and so I, naturally, assumed Glenn had been interviewed and was disappointed that he seemed to be acting in a bitter manner.

One click made me realise it was an interview with the legendary Noel Whelan saying Wesley may take some time to settle...

Hardly Earth-shattering journalism.

Jesus, they plumb new depths every day.

"Shocker! McGrath says standard of back line at Villa is appalling!"

Instead he the goofy c☆nt who used to play upfront for Coventry in their "glory days" of finishing 14th in the prem?

I don't any more. I only click if it's Official Site/BBC/SKY and it's saying that we've actually signed someone. Otherwise i just come on here. If it looks vague it most certainly will be.

Some rumours of Kalinic to Nantes

Part exchange?  Have they any talent?

Valentin Rongier sounds like an aging lothario played by Sid James in a Carry On film.

A for Noel Whelan, it must be something to do with the surname. Wigan's Dave Whelan used to spout off about stuff that wasn't his business all the time too.

Stoke City have signed a new goalkeeper. Butland heading to either us or B'mouth. No disrespect but he is unlikely to choose  the Seasiders however I think we should not pay 20 m. Best to do a deal with  them and stand off Butland if they agree to transfer Mings for 1M in double quick time.

must be a few players we can throw in to get the cash side down?  Tishbola Lansbury or Green on loan
