you canít tell much from video clips and stats

I will reserve judgement as always until i see how enthusiastic he is at his first press conference
and the first five minutes of watching him play

Only seen a few brief clips of him, but he seems to be an attacking midfielder who would play where Barkley currently plays.

Brother in law is a diehard OM fan. Seems to think he should be a good purchase for Villa but feels he may have to get used to the physicality or what he perceives of the game compared to across the channel, isnít an aggressive player.

Personally, Iím not sure English football is quite as aggressive as it was say 10-20 years ago in relation to other leagues.

It's the shirt stretching technique that's most important

I thought that Sanson's transfer was from Marseille, not Manhattan

What will be his work permit situation now that the UK is in self imposed sanctions with the EU ?

Why did we hurry Hourihane out the door before Sanson is signed up? Work permits may be an issue, but hopefully not.

Same as for any non-EU overseas player. He won't get one automatically as he isn't an international. However, he will easily meet the criteria having played loads of games in a recognised top league in addition to plenty of matches in European competition. It may take a few days to resolve, though.

Itís definitely faster and more athletic. I do miss the good old aggressive days. You rarely get away with a good old fashioned reducer nowadays.

There was one beauty on Saturday against Newcastle - I can't remember who it was, maybe Targett? Completely fair but absolutely smashed the Newcastle player. It had Carragher chuckling.

Think Ramsey had moved ahead of Hourihane in the pecking order anyway in the eyes of the coaching staff.
