Pep the Clot will have Hogan hopping over the gates at Wast Hills double quick time.

Then pop in to The Man on The Moon for 8 pints and a few pies.

Ighalo is apparently a possible mover back into the Prem
He has form for goals.

He'd be useful.  Especially if we get this ice and snow that is forecast for Feb'.
We shall sign a Greenland International ........don't you just inuit

Hogan out (again) must confirm that we are clearing the decks.

New arrival this week.

Im absolutely convinced we didn't do a single bit of scouting on Hogan other than looking at the Championship scoring charts.

Hopefully he can hide how shite he is for long enough to make them want him on a permanent. It worked with Gardner.

Sadly I doubt that they could afford him.

The owner of Stade Rennais is among the 30 richest man in the world.
 I am not saying Villa cant compete with them, just Rennes can afford him as much we can.

I didn't realise that François Pinault was married to Salma Hayek.

You'd think with that kind of dough he'd get it trimmed.

NZonzi linked with Stade Rennais . So better forget about this. But it is no surprise.

We can't compete with the Stade Rennais of this world.
With our FFP position it's quite possible we can't right now.
What FFP position?
My understanding is we're walking a very tight line on complying with FFP, which is limiting what we can spend.  Is that not correct?

It has also been stated on here that there is no problem, we are not troubling European places and if we go down we sell players at a massive profit.
I did know oursituation in Division 2 now I have no idea.

I don't understand FFP, so hopefully the experts on here who are aware of the clubs finances are correct, that we have nothing to worry about.

Anything at this stage would be guesswork really, as it would be possible to have a stab at the rough income for the year based on available info for Premier League merit money etc, but we don't really have an idea about the wage bill, as that really would be pure speculation.  I think it almost undoubtedly is tight, but I also think it would be a lot, lot worse and more difficult to manage if we get relegated.
