I think Luiz will go.
That would be gutting, he's been so consistent since the arrival of Emery and under Smith he has been one of my favourite players. I always thought he was underrated for the work he did and the ease in the way he plays.

He would add quality to any midfield in any team.

I think other clubs have noticed.
They have unfortunately. I still just hope he wants to hang around and we can flog someone else. Maybe weíll find some cash down the sofa.

FFP is a bit ridiculous. We finally get owners with deep pockets and what seems like ambition and weíre still having to watch our pennies.

Much as it pains me to say it, I think big emi will go. The drop-off between the worlds number 1 and any reserve is too big. £100m for Emi and replace him with at least 2 very good keepers would improve our squad and solve ffp in one go.

No one is paying £100m for Emi, even if we value him at that level.

Really? What should be the price for the worlds number 1 goalkeeper?

I agree, I think the only way we sell Emi is if heís pushes to leave and hopefully we wonít be in a position where thatís an issue.

I think a lot depends on Champions League qualification next year as it will incentivise players to stay and also bring in extra income.

I donít know, but I would be amazed if someone offered £100m for Emi. Heís over 30 and heís a goalkeeper. I wouldnít swap him for anyone, but I donít think the clubs chucking around massive money would have the same view.

I think the transfer market peaked at the time  Chelsea ran out of rope.

I think he's got it in him to act up and push for a move.

I agree.

I reckon Man U, Man City, spurs and arsenal with have an extra £100m each season but after that most clubs will be close to the FFP allowance so about £40m deficit each season.

Doesn't seem like it to me.

Quote from: Emi
"It's the calmest moment of my entire career; now I'm playing with a free mind. Before, I played under the pressure that if I didn't perform well, I wouldn't play on the weekend.

"I'm enjoying football. I'm a different goalkeeper; I feel like I've achieved what I wanted as a footballer. Now, the best Emi is yet to come.

"I enjoy the warm-up; many feel pressure or are nervous. I feel like a child when he sees the park and runs to get on the slide.

"I look around and see the people; it gives me goosebumps. People ask me to dance, and in that moment, I am free.

ďI continue to set goals. I want to play 100 games for the National Team, be the goalkeeper with the most clean sheets in the history of the National Team, play in the Champions League with Aston Villa after 35/40 years.

They are difficult goals but I think I can achieve them, and I am sick with that."

Apparently we are going to post a £138 million loss for 2023 (Kieran Maguire) and will be forced into sales this summer.
