The issue isn't January per se, it's the summer when this could and should have been avoided. To suggest that transfers are very sticky business in January and we should cut the club slack for that does not absolve them for fucking up September does it?

They can't have it both ways, they've made a mess full stop.

I think everyone said in the summer, having one relatively untried striker was madness and so itís turned out. As for the rest of the players and purchases, I thinks it all in hindsight, and weíre all football geniuses in hindsight. If we manage to stay up and it is an if, I think thereís probably a player in Luiz, possibly Nakamba and Trez, thereís definitely players in Hause, Konsa, Guilbert and Engels. Targett and Wesley open to debate. So we would have the nucleus of a good team and hindsight then would tell us the business of summer 2019 wasnít a complete disaster, we just need to scrape over the line, starting today hopefully...another Leicester performance with more ball retention would do.

All that Silomena slimani talk is pure and outright conjecture. Talk about poor rumour and poor research and not up to date. One of the annoyances of the window is the media feeding stories .

The man is on loan full season at Monaco there is no reason for him to move and cut his loan to be loaned to villa now he Monaco have a new manager.
He even scored v PSG last Sunday .
And as Rodgers says it's complicated as I can imagine any deal Villa do is loan to buy with conditions.
No will have to be someone else not slim

Well its basically been said on here that Benteke is coming back loan to buy option.
It was never said when in window but it's been touted as a signing happening

Benteke return may be on the cards. Loan to buy (from what Iíve heard last night)


And  also we be all been told here that we are signing Jared Bowen.

Good source says we are making progress with Bowen. Be happy with that to supply the ammo.

So that's Bowen and Benteke  according to this itk


Latest please !?????

I'm on transfer watch and a truth seeker.
I'll end it when we sign Bowen and Benteke and/or when transfer window closes.
Was only asking update as people are decent enough to post info I'm decent enough to enquire on how the transfer talk is going.

I won't however 'start' anything in integration or integrity for that matter.
Respectfully hearing your plea. Maybe also request solid rumours only from those who hear things but yes I was asking for interest for all not to call anyone out !
No more will be asked till 31st ok on these 2 moves.
Thanks

This is a genuine question. Is Skillz foreign? Does he have his posts translated online from his native language? That would explain a great deal.

Skillz is 'A Truth Seeker'. I recall an episode of Frasier when he had to go on a very long car journey with 'A Truth Seeker'.

I hope we sign Nzonzi, but we will have a lot of players sitting around and getting paid without contributing for the rest of the season.

Yeah I donít really mind about that provided we can get a vaguely competitive 11 on the pitch.

That's what we've got already, with half of them on the pitch.

Totally correct. They need to earn their shirts.
