Having watched all of Villa’s pre-season there have been some notable deficiencies in the squad as well as some encouraging moments. I think you will see McLeish take very few risks early on in his Villa career, with the more experienced players favoured in order to prove their worth come the start of the season.

It’s got to that time of year when all Villa fans are starting to worry that no transfers will be made at all this summer with the likes of Sunderland already having made a massive 9 additions thus far.

Last week, new manager Alex McLeish claimed that he would be handing a clean slate to all the Villa players in order for them to prove their worth to the club, offering the likes of Stephen Warnock and Stephen Ireland a second chance at Villa Park after a torrid 2010/11 campaign. Read more
