Anyone else getting impatient? We need to get a few more pieces of business done soon

I agree Whack. Getting a bit unnerved as some of our supposed ‘targets’ look to be going elsewhere and, despite our early promising activity, we still need strong signings in key positions ?

We need to be prepared to be patient you can’t get all your deals over the line as quickly as you might want. I’d rather wait and get the right player than move onto someone else not quite as good but available now. Obviously I don’t know but given the rumours it appears we are interested in Conor Gallagher but Chelsea want to assess him pre season, given the strength of the Chelsea midfield it’s unlikely he will be a regular starter therefore if we are interested I think we have a real chance of landing him but patience will be the key.

Apparently our alleged interest in Soucek is also cooling. Why it would when he is affordable is beyond me. I agree that it is worrying that our proposed signings are finding other avenues to pursue while we seem to have run out of breath in the transfers race.

Agreed Loti, it's going to be a long summer for people who buy into the paper talk and then get disappointed when we don't sign them. If there's one thing we've learnt, it's that Villa like to do their deals quietly and effectively with minimal fuss. We do things properly and to your point, will only push for the right deals, not get drawn into protracted bidding wars with agents and do things publicly. Long may it continue. Let's judge the effort in the market when the season starts. We've already done some pretty good business nice and early.

Most footballers are still on holiday, (especially jack) i think things will start to move again in the next couple of weeks ahead of the start of the pre season games. I don't think Phillips or Bissouma were ever going to join us, so we need to focus on players that will.

Think we need to be patient, we haven't even kicked a ball pre-season yet - We'll get the LB, No.8 and forward we need before the season starts.
