Thought we'd loan out Davis instead. Thought Ally looked decent in his first few games but looked way out of things from restart for whatever reason.

Intrigued to see who we get as a new striker now, haven't seen any real links since we signed Watkins.

Haven't seen many links for a while in general, seems to have gone quiet.

Yep all gone now. Why do people do it and it was a normally reliable Villa feed as well.

That must surely need another striker incoming?

Obviously, Keinan's new deal is like a new signing etc etc

That seems genuine ?

I detest twatter too.
I tend to follow #avfc for the transfer gossip and bullshit during the transfer windows and then close my account when the window shuts.

bit disappointed if true. I think given a full season to adjust he could have been a 10-15 goal a season striker for us and i'm surprised Smith has that little faith in his own judgement really*

I hope it is a genuine account.  Samatta lacks what it takes for the Premier Division, not quick enough, not powerful enough, not good enough movement.  It also means that we have another striker coming in as we wouldn't be so stupid as to repeat last season, would we?  Josh King?

A shame in a way. A lot was made, by him and the club, of how he was the first Tanzanian to play in the Prem. He would have worn that badge proudly so I'm a little surprised that he's "given up" so quickly. But if Dean was honest with him about his chances, maybe Samatta had little choice (apart from doing a Lansbury and train for pay I guess).

I think he’s been a bit of a victim of circumstance. Parachuted in late in January to a poor performing side not scoring goals, scarcely found his bearings and into lockdown for months, presumably without knowing many folks in his new surroundings. He undoubtedly didn’t look up to scratch when football restated but I thought we might persist with him.

We surely, surely have to have another striker coming in to replace him.

Has he gone or loan?
