    Villa making their 9th signing - getting a whole new team almost?

    Guess they feel there has to be that much improvement to their squad to compete...

    Sheffield United also broken their transfer record 3 times - 10 million for a guy with 3 goals in 60 Premier league games.

    Norwich been pretty quiet though.

    So guess all the promoted teams are going about their business in different ways..

    Which one will pay off?

    Villa now making their 12th summer signing. They are getting Tom Heaton for £8m from Burnley.

    I wonder if they would want Prodl for £15m, or Zeegelaar for £20m? They are just being incredibly crazy with their splash the cash attitude.

    It's now nearly £140m total spend!!

    Presume they really don't think the team that got them promoted is up to it.

    Mostly seem to be defenders including Mears who they had on loan anyway.

    Crazy? Heaton is one of the best keepers in the league.

    That's your opinion. I think he's decent, but nothing more than that. It's another desperate signing from Villa. £9m for a player who is in his last year of his contract. This is the first time anyone has ever paid any money for him. He's been a free transfer throughout his entire career......until now.

    Didn't we spend upwards of 70 million in our first season back and 50 of that before the season started?

    When you look at what we signed it makes Flores look even more of a legend.

    I mean just look at some of the crazy prices paid just to set up the squad:

    Jurado and Amrabat cost the same as Capoue. Holebas cost almost the same as our loan fee for Ibarbo. 18 million on Saurez, Berghuis and Oulare during the season too. Crazy.

    Our free transfers actually did alright too. Prodl, Nyom and Britos.

    I suppose Villa are just going for quantity in the squad like we did when we signed 13 (plus Vydra and Nyom from Watford B) .

    Time will tell if they end up doing a Fulham or Watford though.

    Ibarbo fee was cracking business.
