Sky have the biggest agenda going with their 'Transfer Centre' and associated bollocks. It's funny how they report on deals and get everyone betting on it isn't it?

Apart from the fact that they donít own Sky Bet anymore

I think Tammy will come in on deadline day but would prefer Eduard as Tammy is too similar to Watkins. Eduard is more of a Benteke mark2

I would take Tammy over Edourad every day of the week.

Tammy can play either out left or through the middle where I believe Edourad only plays as an out and out striker. Wasn't Tammy quoted as saying that his prefered position was a left sided forward?
Also, Tammy has got premier league experience under his belt whereby with Edourad we would be taking a chance on how he adapts to the pace of the league.

Yes, Tammy would cost more than Edourad but the advantage would be that the chemistry and understanding of how Dean Smith wants to play would be still fresh in the mind with Tammy and he would have no issues fitting straight back in where he left off.

But they do receive large revenues from advertising betting companies. Relentlessly.

Really can't see Chelsea letting Kevin go. They've sent out Batshuayi to palace, so really they have him and Giroud as back-up to Werner which is the least you'd want considering injuries and CL/cup games

the centre half thing is a worry

I like Engels but he looks out of favour might even be sold
if we have to rely on Hause for any length of time weíll be in deep trouble

I think the last week of this window will be our busiest ever. Plenty to move out, as well as the much-needed incomings. My only regret is that itíll draw me into watching the Sky Transfer Show...

And the transfer betting market is absolutely insignificant. Even when they did own some of SkyBet, theyíre not going to produce and broadcast expensive TV programmes to drum up £5 bets on Man City signing Messi.

The transfer show is just really crap, baseless journalism - no conspiracy

With the news yesterday that potentially there will be no crowds until March? the loss of revenue must be huge for the club and with the money that they must be putting into the club to pay wages etc..,this must be costing them a fortune,

I think that the owners may now put the cheque book away (or hide the BACs card).
For me, this is the exact time to be spending money. Other clubs are vulnerable and will be holding back their spending - it's a great chance to be able to buy up players with little in the way of serious competition. Honestly think that well spent money over the next 3 or 4 windows would see us leapfrog a load of mid table sides, and even more sides in continental Europe.

Lampard seems to be trying to sell some of his players. Wouldn't be at all surprised if we get offered Tammy in the next few days.

Hudson-Odoi may be available too.

There was never going to be 40,000 back inside Villa Park any time soon. It would have been a few thousand at the most for now and they would have known this so I can't see it making too much of a difference to spending.

Samatta out and Tammy in would be on a par with the Baros / Carew swap.  I know Samatta isn't going to Chelsea but in terms of the squad strength I mean.

Correct. Thereís no way Chelsea will let Tammy go unless they buy another striker, which would be highly unlikely.

Talk of Chelsea buying Declan Rice for £80m so they might want to bring some money back in. Not necessarily on Abraham but maybe on some of their kids who they're making it hard for them to break through. Think of the likes of that right back that Brighton bought.

Declan Rice. £80m?! Is that a typo?
