Adebayor is available.

Didn't he come out and say his Pastor advised him against signing for us when Sherwod wanted him?

God told Joseph Yobo to sign for Everton, apparently.

There's hope for me and Suzanne Virdee yet.

There isn't.

I did know that, it came out in a documentary one time
one of the most unbelievable things ever

the bloke was a complete weirdo as well
a very lucky weirdo it has to be said

I remember seeing Rosamund Pike on Graham Norton and she said she went on a blind date with some random guy who wrote to her.

It's a shame we're not after Bowen because he looks the part. I trust Smith's judgement though and it would appear Benrahma is his number 1.

Still not any real links with a centre forward is concerning.

Not writing off Wesley but he looks like he'll benefit from someone else coming in. I've been counting the games down until January for a number of weeks so hoped we'd get one in early.

Very useful player, that would be a good purchase if true.

Would surely be a loan, he's 32.

Why would he ever come to us?  Even if he did, has he still got the desire

After today I think we need more than just a proper striker.  We need another central defender, probably another full back, and someone we can look to for goals and inspiration to take the pressure off Jack, who at the moment is basically playing by himself.

Don't you want to give James Chester a chance at the back?

If fit, yes. For his experience if nothing else. Or Hause

Has Deano or anyone at Villa confirmed this?

Absolute must - a mobile striker who can hold the ball up and chip in with a few goals

Next priority - pacy winger who can transition defence into attack and has end product

Next priority - a defensive midfielder with a bit of experience who can sit alongside Marvelous or Luiz and can give us a bit of control in there

Next priority - a left back

Would be satisfied enough if we just brought a striker in during the January window to be honest.  I think the other three priorities could be addressed in the summer.

Of the players that you list, I only think that Cahill, Billing, Mooy or Ings would have been either interested in coming to us, or worth going for. Heaton was obviously brought in partly for his experience.
