Guzan Week: ARCHIVE PIC - The day we didn't sign Brad

Guzan Week: ARCHIVE PIC - The day we didn't sign Brad

Here's a picture that has never seen the light-of-day before.

It shows Brad Guzan holding up the Villa GK jersey and was taken a few short hours before a work permit decision was due on the giant USA ace in January 2008.

Villa had agreed a deal with Chivas USA and sorted terms with Guzan.

They were simply waiting for clearance on the move.

The picture was ready for release to media outlets.

Unfortunately, Villa were told that the move could not be ratified.

This picture was consigned to our archives and was never released.

Villa did eventually get their man - six months later.

Interestingly, of course, by that point Villa had changed sponsor from 32Red to Acorns.

Guzan has gone on to big things in claret and blue - winning players and supporters player of the year.

Snap up your season tickets for 2013-14.
