heh. I'm imagining someone surrounded with a bank of old style trimphones, a telex machine and a combined fax/copier

Alli strikes me as a Lennon type character. Exploded on the scene and then rapidly declined once he hit his mid-20's That's a no from me..

Harsh
He still managed to write Imagine in the days after the Beatles broke up

I bow to nobody in my love and admiration for each and every Beatle, but Imagine is the most terrible pile of shit.

Yep. Were you in the old building, Brian? My head was Alan Cholmondoly, I think he might have been at the old place when it closed.

I'm not against Alli, although his wages - which i imagine are pretty high - and motivation for coming to Villa would need to looked at carefully.

Bit of a pipe dream, but I'm kind of hoping for more of a statement signing. Our Ruud Guillit. Alli strikes me as the sort of player Newcastle or West Ham would buy, if you know what I mean.

yeah whatever you think about Maureen, he seems to weed out the players he doesn't think have the right attitude.

Yup, binning out Salah and De Bruyne from Chelsea suggests his judgement is spot on.

I never made the new place Mike though the present Mrs Green did.  We only made it to use the sea of wet clay they called the new rugby pitches.  Tom Rogers, a cane happy Quaker whom I hated and feared in equal measure was the Beak until I left.

Salah was awful for chelsea, you'd have to be a football genius to predict him coming good. De Bruyne, a mistake but at the time would you have binned their first team for him. They have so many players they buy, then loan out that the managers never see properly

Nah, c'mon, that is just not true regarding Salah. Certainly Chelsea fans will disagree with you. And M knows this and has since studiously laid the blame for the selling of Salah elsewhere - it was "the club", not him.

Don't agree really. Family member is a chelsea fan and its meh as far as he was concerned. He wasn't a cahill where everyone could see he was ace. He's more a Samatta if he went on to win the CL for barcelona. Yeah its a pisser but no-one was shedding tears when they got a decent fee for him

Couldn't agree more! It's in my list of top 5 annoying "rated" songs along with Satisfaction, Three Little Birds, Walk of Life and Should I Stay or Should I Go.
