Has anybody got a spare aircraft hangar in which to contain my excitement?

There's a venue in Small Heath with plenty of room.

Are Hull going to have enough players left to field a team against us on opening day?

I thought that was their issue last year? They should have enough tv money to buy two teams in in two weeks.

Agreed 8m for Stewart from Liverpool who we were linked with but are going for the long term option in Whelan instead.  Hull will either be top 6 or bottom 6 I reckon.

I saw this yesterday, I've never heard of him. I'm glad we haven't paid £8m for someone who's only played 9 times for Liverpool and has been loaned out three times since he's been there.

Meh. Gives me something to talk about with my Egyptian customers I suppose.

Not a signing to set the pulse racing but is by no means a bad player. If he can actually putt in a cross (Huttons main downfall) then he will improve us.

The problem I have with this sort of signing is that we are putting another salary on the payroll for 3 years when we should be looking at two more quality Premiership loans. I would start with Chelsea as I would hope John Terry knows who is worth a season long loan. Huddersfield did it to great effect last season.

Optimists say he'll be an excellent addition.

Pessimists say it's a waste of money.

As that amount of money is £1m, I don't think the latter should get too worried. In the mad world of football, it's hardly risk of the century, is it?


it's this sort of post that does my head in


Pleased to be of assistance.

If we could loan this year's Tammy Abraham I'd be pretty happy

I too dislike loans. I don't like Villa to help other clubs in a more fortunate position than ourselves in any way.

We're not really helping Man. United with Johnstone though, he's pretty much surplus to requirements there.

I have my reservations about him so I'd rather see if he can go up a level this season rather than fork out 5m for him straight away.

It's a bit like if we'd signed Carson for 8m and then had a terrible keeper on our books and had to make another big loss.

Yes. Considering we tend to buy players, keep them in the team for a couple of seasons and then sell them for a big loss, loans seem quite a useful option!

Will that mean you'll "Talk like an Egyptian?"
