Ahh, but from the Beeb gossip

Aston Villa's bid to sign Bayer Leverkusen's Jamaican winger Leon Bailey has been complicated by Leicester, Everton, Wolves and Southampton showing an interest in the 23-year-old, who could be available for £30m. (90min)

Maybe this summer's Rashica?

Completely different level from Rashica. If you're going for the likes of Bailey then if we have any pretensions to move up a level then we should see off those clubs. Leicester are obviously the big threat but financially/potentially we should be able to make a better case

I think Julian Alvarez is this season's Rashica/Benni McCarthy

Maybe not Benni, he's only 43 now but always struck me as an ex-pro who would embrace middle-age spread.

Yes. Now (with Jack) we possibly know how they felt every year. (Itís all relative admittedly).

We'd apparently signed Bull every summer, but agreed not to announce it until the last minute so it didn't affect the dogheads' season ticket sales. Probably late enough to announce it now.

Aren’t Sky Germany even less reliable than the UK lot?

The Sky Germans weren't very good at supplying the 6th Army so you could be right.

But made a right mess of Coventry :)

Did any Villa manager actually press Doug to sign him?

I seem to remeber reading that when we did enquire and were told his wages, we quickly looked elsewhere.
