Kevin Keen: Expects the club to make a couple of new signings

Former France international Nicolas Anelka remains manager Steve Clarke's only major summer signing so far.

And with the club having lost a number of key players during the off-season, Keen admits sporting and technical director Richard Garlick and chairman Jeremy Peace must aim to bring in some fresh faces.

"We're possibly a little bit thin on the ground," Keen told the club's official website.

"We've had a few players go out and the club are working extremely hard in the background to try to bring in a couple of new bodies of real quality that are going to excite the fans, similar to when Nico (Anelka) came in, when everyone went, 'wow, how's he signed for West Brom?'.

"We're hopeful that things will come off but we'll see over the next few weeks.

"We certainly need a couple of players and Richard (Garlick) and the chairman are working very hard to try and bring in new recruits."

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
