It is Little Aston.

Great that we are getting deals done at all given the way the close season started!  Fantastic that we are getting quality rather than quantity too, and getting them in early.  Bruce deserves some credit.  I reckon a left back, winger and a striker still coming in.

Cheers Ads.  Not in Doug's bathroom I hope.

I know Spire Little Aston has looked after Villa players and officials. Sounds good to me.

Looking at Bruce recently i'm guessing one of them is his weekly check-up

Between now and the 31st, can PL still loan players between themselves or only abroad and lower leagues?

PL clubs can only loan out they can't now loan in from anywhere.

So there will be some top players available, as anyone wanting to play (in England) will need to drop down a level. Right?
A great way to sign some real quality and also a good gauge of the player's character too.

Yup - particularly those clubs who have splurged on a load of players.

As well as Snodgrass, I'd be asking about the likes of Bolasie at Everton and Antonio at West Ham. Hard to see them getting much of a chance if they stay put.

After the start we have made I hope we are getting a center back in. Cus Tuezebe or Jedinak arenít the answer.

A little harsh on Tunzebe.  He had a good game today and we haven't really seen him play at centre half in order to make judgement.

I agree with Jedinak but by the same token, I see why Bruce chose to play him there today, given the size of the Wigan players.

Jedinak was doing quite well until his mistake for the first goal. He was winning loads in the air.
