Re: Martin O Neills transfer record at Villa
A bit hit and miss. Should have kept a few a little longer IMO (Whittingham, A. Hughes, Ridgewell, Cahill, maybe even Phillips) as he spent and wasted a fair amount of cash replacing these squad players (possible first team in Cahill) with equal or worse standard players. Payed over the odds on a couple (Reo-Coker stands out, £8.5m!) but there are some good deals in there (Carew swap for Baros, Young, Milner, Friedel, Cuellar, Petrov). Overall not too bad I reckon, you can't win with every transfer.
