Fulham - Villa Clear-Out Link!

Fulham - Villa Clear-Out Link!

Midweek, even as early as Tuesday, we find that news is very scarce.

In fact I had to look long and hard to uncover this little snippet a sit was buried deep within the bowels of a story related to some fading club from Birmingham who play in claret and blue!

Apparently the interest we showed in Steve Sidwell could be resurrected, Aston Villa, now under the stewardship of Gerrard Houllier, are looking to improve their squad in January with the Frenchman, as the tabloids say, looking to make at least two signings.

But, and here it comes folks, it looks as if Houllier will have to sell before he can buy, hence the possible resurrection of a deal for Sidwell, although I have to say it is purely very weak speculation at this stage.

Personally, I`m not sure that Mark Hughes will be interested. Sidwell has flattered to deceive at his last two ports of call and I reckon the days have passed whereby we should be associated with buying anybodies cast-offs, especially from a club we`re looking to pass on our climb up the table!

What planet are you lot on...pleeeeease! One good season and you become world beaters? The last 3 seasons 12th, 7th and 17th? as opposed to that rubbish unknown team in Birmingham finishing 6th, 6th and 6th.

as far as i know mark hughes generally buys good players so dont know what he wants with him... you can have him for free sure... Oh and astvil and denis the first line reads he had to look long and hard for this tiny bit of info... So that would lead me to believe its not from the most reputable media source...

Also when you put 2 and 2 together its easy to see, Sidwell is one of 2 fit central midfielders at the club, he is postpoing surgery because he is our only natural choice to play in the middle at the moment alongside Reo-Coker. With Houllier saying he doesn't want to get rid of anybody but realises we need a lot of numbers in I would be shocked if we sold Sidwell this January, or Carew for that matter. Even though both are no way good enough for our future they are needed in the short term so I think both will be staying but only until when their deals run out in the summer. And well said Denis, Fulham are a poor poor team and only improved under Roy, shame you couldn't hold onto him. When Schwarzer and Hangelland leave your small club then I will have a smile on my face when you once again fall to the Championship in a few seasons time! Can't wait to see Ash batter your defense this weekend! UTV!

Well, I think this article had its intended effect. Hook, line and sinker, I'd say. I suspect Hughes would go after Ireland before he went after Sidwell. Of course, we don't have the money for Ireland, so that's that!

Andrew joyce who the hell do you think you are? Your club arn't and will never be bigger than aston villa. You are a 15 - 8th club and nothing more so what gives you the right to say we are a failing club when we have just had a good experienced manager come to us and gave us good attacking football and positive ideas to take the club forward. Fulham are nobodies and i had the upmost respect for them and their fans until i saw this, i wont tar all with the same brush but you obviously have a vendetta against our club, i dont no if it's jeolousy or we have done something to upset you but i hope actually i no we will give you a good hiding this weekend. I will look forward to seeing the response to why we are a failing club and how fulham are better and bigger than us.
