Mad Turks Son – Umit Eminoglu…

The new season is almost here and as of yet we aint got any new signings, Emile Heskey could be off to Bristol City but O’Neil has denied this rumour, Please please please let him go – pay them to take him off our books if you have to but get rid of the fooker.

David Bevan > Walsall / Free, Jack Dyer > Burton Albion / Free, Stephen O Halloran > Cov City / free, whilst Wilfred Bouma, Marlon Harewood and Andy Marshall have all been released from their contracts, I’ve always rated Marlon Harewood a stronger more aggressive player than Heskey….

It looks like James Milner will be a Man City player by the end of next week with Stephen Ireland (Midfielder) joining Villa in a deal worth around £25 million. Luke Young looks like he is Anfield bound after being left out of the latest touring squad.

On the plus side the “Youth” team which is where Villa have aspired now for several seasons looks as strong as ever. Bryan Jones the Academy Director and Kenny Swain head coach of the Under 16s are chuffed to bits on having 6 teenage villa stars given the chance to impress the England coaches after being called up for the national trials.

The Mad Turks son Umit Eminoglu (pictured) a villa youth team player and also a Turkish International gets a glowing recognition in this news report that can be found on this link.

I think that Umit in Turkish stands for “hope” – We all hope that Umit can make it through the youth training and break into the first team – just like Gabby and Nathan Delfouneso (striker) one to watch out for this year, I reckon Nathan will be one of the main strikers for England in the next world cup finals in four years time.


The team reached the FA Youth Cup Final last season, beaten by Chelsea in the final – good times ahead at Villa park if we can keep hold of these aspiring youngsters.
