Forgot one recent addition at Villa ... Mahmoud Trezeguet, a young Egyptian midfielder who looked sharp in the African Cup of Nations recently despite Egypt crashing out in the round of 16 on home soil. He's got promise, as do a lot of the guys that Villa have brought in. That's the one upside for me in Villa's spending spree. They went largely for either guys who had played in Smith's system already or young guys on the rise. No aging war horses, and no Championship level heroes ... which are the signings that generally get clubs into trouble both on the pitch and on the salary books.
