Villa to rival Liverpool
The Mail is today 'claiming' that Liverpool are going to have a rival for Sylvain Distin as Villa are 'ready to compete' with the bin dippers for him...
It is said that the Frenchman 'is keen on Anfield but Villa hope to offer the prospect of more regular first-team football.'
I still, even if I admit that Distin had not been my favourite player last season, cannot see why he would want to go to the bin dippers as he will hardly ever play - at least with Villa unfortunately losing the fantastic Martin Laursen due to injury this would give the 31-year-old a much better chance should he go to Villa Park?
'If' there is more interest in him and 'if' he does decide to leave at least with more interest it 'should' at least drive the price a little higher, as the £2m that it is claimed we have been offered is laughable at the moment...right?
PLAY UP POMPEY!
