Jovanovic - yes please, Parker - no thanks

Premier League Aston Villa

Anymore British players transfering to Villa and my eyes will burst out on storks and my heart will stop beating. Villa are a real classic British club ( which is great ) - with probably the most British based players at any club in the history of football. It's noble, but being noble doesn't grab a top 4 spot or bring in silverwear.

Milan Jovanovic is exactly the type of striker we need to grab in january, it seems Defours head has now been turned by Utd so any chance of an incredible double swoop would never happen. Defour broke his leg but it didn't stop him buying Downing who will be very good at full fitness. VDV is still the guy most of us think Martin should try to snap up, he is sheer class.

Scott Parker is exactly the type of player we don't need at Villa. Another average British water carrier who wouldn't even get into our starting 11 unless everyone of our midfielders were out injured...........and that includes Gardener and Salifou!

Scott Parker is in my opinion a great player. And i'd have him to replace petrov in the holding midfield role. I feel we are crying out for a top quality striker now to replace carew who in my opinion hasn't done the business this year and is living off his cult status, which seems to have been obtained by going to a lap dancing club... As much as i love Carew i think that the mind set of the team is to hit it long when he's in there and we play better when we pass the ball around. If we can get Scott Parker and someone like huntelaar then i would be extremely confident that we can finish fourth.

Parker isn't as good as NRC defensively and isn't great at creating either so no thanks. Don't know about Javanovic either but SS said we are interested.

Jovanovic has averaged around a goal every other game for Standard Liege, whether that he would score at that rate in The Premier League is debatable. Italian press are reporting that he will sign for Milan on a free transfer in the summer, so I seriously doubt our chances of signing him. I do agree that we desperately need a proven goalscoring forward, trouble is on our budget they are hard to come across. Unless we spend 15 - 20 million on a quality finisher we will never get into the top four.
