Spot on!!
Hopefully our club is now run well enough to carry out proper due diligence and ensure that we make no mistakes.

Two men being investigated, one on bail and one not, would indicate that the second one doesn't have much to worry about.

It would seem to indicate that the person concerned perhaps wasn't as fully involved as the other person still on bail?

Two true statements 1) innocent until proven guilty beyond reasonable doubt 2) sexual offences are frequently one word against another and so extremely difficult to prove beyond reasonable doubt. Incompetence and prejudice of the criminal justice system are not the only reasons the for pathetic conviction rates for rape and serious sexual offences.

I donít know the circs of this case.

There's also "the no smoke without fire" thoughts.
I might be inclined to give him a miss. Just in case.

Footballers are easy targets. That's not to say that there aren't some genuine cases but some cases will just be where footballers have been targeted.

I can't see us spaffing £40m + on Bissouma who is away, unavailable and could potentially return injured.  Zakaria is a more realistic option if we are going to make a signing this month.  That and a CB and we've had the most amazing January.
Zakaria had a serious knee injury a couple of seasons back and has been described as "not the same player in the tackle, since". Also has never played in the PL where Bissouma has proved he can hack it very well indeed.
Unless the money is an issue, I'd go with Bissouma

The obsession with Bissouma on this thread reminds me of the net spend of Tottenham Hotspur more than a decade ago.

Someone (possibly us) is testing the water at £30m. Bids arenít often put in like this unless the buyer has revived an inkling that the players wants to go or the club will listen to offers. Iím sure heíll be gone this month and I hope itís us as he improves our midfield and team infinatly.

If it is us, it would fit in with what SG said that if all our business comes off, then we,the fans, would be very excited.

I don't see many non-Villa games but my uncle who watches all the televised PL games has wanted us to buy him for about 2 years. Reckons he's exactly what we've needed so he for one would be very excited if we did.

It's one of those where you get a feeling there could be something in it and you wouldn't be surprised if we were.

That would be interesting.  But would he block Kenian's pathway? :-)
