Dutch International Ron Vlaar Spotted at Villa Park

+

Twitter detectives were hard at work this afternoon when a mystery player and his agent were spotted with Paul Lambert at Villa Park on a Sunday. After extensive analysis it was determined that the player was Feyenoord's captain and center back for the Dutch national team, Ron Vlaar. His name fits into many songs. Does this mean Vlaar is set to join Villa? Rumor is the fee being discussed is anywhere from 5-8 million pounds.

Ron Vlaar to be a Villa player?

Paul Lambert Wants Andy Carroll

7

There have been rumblings about the future of Liverpool big man Andy Carroll since Brendan Rodgers has taken over at the Merseyside club. Rodgers has plans for Liverpool that don't involve a player like Carroll but apparently Aston Villa's new boss Paul Lambert thinks he'd be a great fit in Birmingham. Could Villa look to bring on Carroll in some kind of season long loan? Would a team of Darren Bent and Andy Carroll work for you? Let us know what you think.

A Statistical Profile of Karim El Ahmadi

One of my main frustrations with the online soccer community is the relative dearth of statistical data available freely so people like you and I can wonk out to our heart's content. A man who doesn't have that problem, lifelong Villa fan and WhoScored editor-in-chief Martin Laurence, put together this post on Karim El Ahmadi's stats in the Eredivisie. Of particular interest is the line Laurence draws between El Ahmadi and captain Stiliyan Petrov, and if El Ahmadi can fill those boots and more, we've got a real player on our hands here.

Are these Alex McLeish's match notes?

1
Classic Football Shirts have got some cool stuff on their site. Apparently they've obtained an Alex McLeish match-used jacket, and found his notes left in the pocket, as you can see in this picture. As Aaron pointed out on twitter, it's pretty fitting that he misspelled "team" on his first go. My favorite part is the bullet that says "Defending Set Play." It's good to know he at least wrote about it, since he never did much of anything.
