Steve davies-Asking price of 1.4m
Chris maguire-Asking price of 575k

If Derby manage to sell any of these
a small sum will be added to Nigel
Cloughs 1.2 million Transfer budget
But the owners have hinted that the
Money they have given him isnt just
out they want that to be used on
decent young players not 1 million
pound 30 year olds.They also said
that if they dont go up that without
big investment Nigel wouldnt be given
amount of money next season.

To alert Derby county fans to Nigels
Plans

Posistions hes looking to fill as he
wants 2 of every posistion

The Targets are in order of who his
main target is then next is if he
dosent get his main target he has
back up options

Left back(young pacey)
targets
1.Paul dixon
2.Joe Mattock

If Steve Davies goes leeds as they
want him they will try and sway Aidy
white to joining Derby but hes more
Likely to go to Bolton,Norwich or
Swansea.

Striker(Potiential 20 goals in a season)
1.Johnny Russell
2.John Daly

If Dundee united Make an official Bid
For Chris Maguire.Derby will give 500k
+ Chris for Johnny Russell

This is all true.I have not said apart
fegor ogude that any of these players have

Believable2 Unbelievable2

£500 000 FOR Johnny Russell,please get real.The guys EPL quality and tied down to a good deal with years left to go.Its not a Goodwilliw situation with a year left on his deal.So they let him go cut price for £2 million.Russell has just made his first Scotland squad.And is worth so much more.Better player to and can play up front alone.And is better in the air than Goody

Believable0 Unbelievable1

23 May 2012 19:58:52
Poisoned chalice is the Villa job; already bored of OGS yes/no saga. Initially Lambert was my favoured choice; I thought that he would be interested in the post with what he has done at Norwich with his mandate to do much of the same on a bigger stage (Chris your comment regarding Norwich just being long ball team is wide of the mark; needs must). Then there are options with both Rodgers and Martinez. Again I'd have taken either but let us Villa fans be realistic these three mentioned managers won't even bother speaking to Lerner and Faulkner; reasons include (i) budget constraints similar budgets at their existing clubs; (ii) increased pressure and expectation managing a perceived bigger club & (iii) Patience poor first season then out of the door.
So rather than go through the circus of events as we did last season and allegedly knocked back by a number of individuals I would more than be satisfied with Gus Poyet and Kevin McDonald would be a good young team. Poyet young, ambitious and realistic and has done an excellent job with Brighton playing attractive football with Kevin Mc as his number 2 developing the 6-8 youngsters introduced last season. We know next season will be another challenge with a desperately thin squad; the manager will know from day one that he will be looking at free transfers, loan deals and players around the £5 million mark. So Gus and Kevin's first signing should be Graham Carr from Newcastle; if that fails maybe getting his son Alan would be an improvement on our existing scouting network i.e. Salifou; Makoun and mark my words Holman will be a flop!

Andy Carroll deserves his Euro 2012 squad place due to good form towards the end of the season. {Ed025's Note - what?....so the last 2 games gives him a place...crouch must be gutted!..

Believable1 Unbelievable3

Ed, I agree totally. It is simply pathetic that because he played alright (no, he wasn't brilliant) in his last couple, he gets a place, while crouch, holt and Sturridge have been playing well all season. Remember how unbelievably s**te Carroll has been ALL THE REST OF THE SEASON! Roy only put him in as he is the moat expensive English player and so he has a 'right' to be in the squad even though he is TERRIBLE.
