I’d like to see Julio Ceasar at Liverpool, as either a back-up or rotation player; Julio Ceasar has also got Champions League Experience and won the Champions League with Inter Milan, and even the Italian League. I also think AC Milan’s veteran keeper Cristian Abbiate as rotation. Abbiate has Champions League Experience, and won the Italian League with Juventus and AC Milan. Shay Given and Michel Vorm I’d also like, though they may not have Champions League experience, though they are to very good keepers. Though Shay Given would mainly be back-up, while Michel Vorm Battling it out with Simon Mignolet. Portuguese keeper Rui Patrico was wanted by LiverpoolFC, before singing Simon Mignolet, I think ‘now’ is the right time for him to join England and hopefully LiverpoolFC, he’s a strong keeper, though does play in Portugal, so he don’t really play teams like LiverpoolFC, Chelsea, Manchester City, though he’d be good for rotation. Now in defence we have got a strong defence with Martin Skrtle ...
Aston Villa to allow veteran Irishman to rejoin Celtic Unwanted Aston Villa keeper Shay Given could be set for a surprise return to Scottish Premier League giants Glasgow Celtic this summer after being deemed surplus to requirements at Villa Park, reports the Daily Mirror. The experienced Republic of Ireland international has been in the Midlands for just the past two seasons now, having signed for Villa from Manchester City for only £3.5 million on a five-year deal in July 2011. And in the intervening two-year period the 37-year-old has featured in only 37 matches in all competitions for Villa, including just three games in total in the whole of the previous campaign for Paul Lambert’s struggling outfit after the Scot deciding to use United States international Brad Guzan as his No 1. As a result, the shot stopper has been told by Lambert that he can leave the club when the summer transfer window finally reopens for business once again on July 1, with Given possibly in line for a return to Glasgow if ...
For God's sake no!!! Why do they assume we'd jump at the chance? Maybe 2-3yrs ago then yes, but him moving to Villa was his final chance to come back to Paradise! Aston Villa will let veteran keeper Shay Given go out on loan next season - with Celtic keen on bringing the Republic of Ireland star 'home'. Given, 37, lost his number one status to Brad Guzan after new manager Paul Lambert arrived last summer. Now, the Birmingham outfit will let him leave for some late-career action and to get one of their top earners off the wage bill. Given began his career at Celtic before being freed in his teens - which would prove a major mistake by the Glasgow giants' then-management. He has gone on to play almost 600 club games for Blackburn, Swindon, Sunderland, Newcastle, Manchester City and Villa, and 125 times for his country - an Irish record until Robbie Keane beat it last week. Boss Neil Lennon would jump at the loan move if he sells English giant Fraser Forster to one of his many south of the border admirers. G ...

Shay Given to leave Aston Villa and may interest Hull City boss Steve Bruce: Aston Villa keeper Shay Given is on the lookout for a new club after being told to look for first-team football elsewhere. Having starting the campaign as Villa's number one, the 37-year-old former Republic of Ireland keeper lost his place to former Hull City loan star Brad Guzan. Now, the Republic of Ireland keeper appears to have accepted a move is his best option, despite having three years remaining on his current deal at Villa Park. "I had a meeting with manager Paul Lambert. We both agreed that I should be playing first-team football. And that's not happening at Villa right now," Given said.  Given signed a five-year deal when he was signed by Alex McLeish from Manchester City in July 2011. However, after the first two Premier League games of the season, he was linked with moves away and even mentioned as a possible target for Steve Bruce at Hull City at one stage. Bruce may well look at the former Newcastle and Sunderla ...

Aston Villa v Man City, 20:00 Draws with QPR, Liverpool and a loss to Southampton have left Manchester City wallowing off the pace set by their more storied neighbours this season, and as a result the ‘win every game’ rhetoric has come out at the beginning of March. Over their last ten matches City have dropped ten points to United’s two, a good indicator as to just how and why the Red Devils are so far ahead after taking their neighbours all the way to the wire last year. For Villa to get a win today it will probably take an almost superhuman effort on their part, although there is always a *** of light in the way Joe Hart has just dropped off the boil of late. Still, the home side have one win and six points in their last ten league matches, and however you spin it that is not inspiring form that makes you think of backing a team. City are 18/5 to win by a 2-goal margin with Ladbrokes, and 8/15 overall to come away with the win. Villa have one of the worst injury lists at present, but Shay Given . ...

MICHAEL COX Aston Villa’s last two matches were against big clubs, but couldn’t have been more different performances. They were highly unfortunate to lose 3-2 at home to Manchester United having raced into a 2-0 lead, but then collapsed 5-0 at Manchester City. Interestingly, Paul Lambert used the same starting XI in both matches – and therefore the main conclusion is that Villa are more suited to playing big sides at home. Like at Norwich, Lambert has focused upon working with unheralded players this season. He’s only used one player over the age of 28 in the league – and that was Shay Given, now demoted to back-up to Brad Guzan in goal. Another relative veteran, Darren Bent, has been dropped in recent weeks despite being one of the Premier League’s most trusted goalscorers, because Lambert believes Belgian signing Christian Benteke brings more to the side with his hold-up play. Benteke is Villa’s primary goalscoring threat – he’s a huge physical presence, and Arsenal need a solid game ...
