How much? Less than half of what we paid?

If the Twitter speculation is to be believed, he's going on loan.

He will be missed.

Assuming he's off - good luck, Bert!  I liked him, but he does seem to be on a par with Keinan for picking up injuries.

I don't understand why we are desperate to get rid of him when Philogene and Aaron Ramsey are out on loan. If one of Bailey, Buendia or Coutinho gets injured are we really relying on Ashley fucking Young? Or is this a further sign he has no intention of playing those three together? Even if you pick two of them you still need a better option than Young on the bench.


We've still got Anwar- although he does seem to be fading to grey as each day passes

1. He's not as good as fun as Bert, though I do like him.

2. Gerrard doesn't seem to rate him anyway as he's already loaned him once.

Seems like madness this. In an era of five subs we lose someone that can, on his day, be a game changer and does, at least, seem to have a vague idea where the opposition goal is. We don't even get a fee for our troubles. Hopefully we have some wing talent lined up because the bench looks bare in those areas, unless we persist with the stupid idea of refusing to play Bailey, Buendia and Coutinho at the same time. Ashley Young is not going to frighten the opposition. It isn't 2009 any more.

If he goes, good luck to him. Capable of the sublime and the ridiculous, sometimes with the same touch, he was never not fun. I don't really trust people that don't like Traore. They almost certainly listen to Coldplay and voted for the Nazis.

I love how skilful Traore is, and I love how he can create a goal out of thin air. The only issue is he has never shown it consistently for us. Last season should have been massive for him, but too many injuries got in the way of him settling and progressing.
he was injured in the run up to the African Nations and then came back and was juried again.
Must have been a long case ...

He hasn't really been given a long enough run to judge him really.

Very true

With the five sub rule you want game changing subs. El Ghazi,Trezeguet,Traore are exactly those as has been proven and I don't think any of them would moan about being subs and gettkng half hour in the Premier League.

Instead we have Ashley Young and whoever else we can muster together. Buendia is not going to be happy being a substitute.

I really can't see what this Head Coach is trying to do. Absolute lunacy

Quite fond of him but he was a bit hit and miss and if it frees up space for a player we need more then itís good news.

Only about 20 miles from the stadium to the Bosporus. One of Bertís clearances could easily end up in Asia.

Yep, big fan of him. Not quite the same type of player but reminds me of Tony Daley who would excite and frustrate similarly. You need a maverick, Villa are consistently dull enough.

I'm sure we'll get some sort of loan fee though probably nominal enough - I imagine they would cover less of his salary if that's the case.

Good luck Bert. An exquisite first touch*, no matter how hard or from where on the pitch it was launched at him, he'd kill the ball stone dead like it was a butterfly gently descending onto a velvet pillow.

*Unless he was defending in his own half, in which case it would ricochet off his 50p foot at an alarming angle.
