I don't Carlos is due back that soon is he, Emery said a few days ago it's going to be "a month or two". He's not even training with the first team yet.

Perhaps, but when he is back, Bednarek would be even further down the food chain. With Carlos out he didn't get a game anyway.

Of course, if we'd not fucked up so royally in the Cup there may be a different argument.

Not a good sign that Guendouzi is starting tonight for Marseille.

Sigh…

Pedro Porro played 90 minutes for Sporting last night but is still heading to London today to sign for Spurs.

All those taking what Emery said about Duran not being ready and believing it 100% I think might well be surprised.

He’ll be on the bench part of the match squad and will get is opportunities, minutes and game time if he does well he could play a part in the second half of the season

We’ll see how it plays out but I’m not sure he’s going to be put in a box marked one for the future where we see nothing of him for a season or two
I think we’ll see a fair bit of him before the season ends even if we end up buying another striker

The selling of Ings is the mystery, whether you rate him or not he was our top goalscorer and could still be very useful coming on in games

Selling him for 12m + this & that is chicken feed in todays business so maybe we have got something in mind before the end of the window

Most of the others we are letting go have been neither use nor ornament and will affect the team by zero amount

Honest question….would you turn down £15m return of your own money of an outlay of £25m when it hadn’t tuned out great…….I thought not…

It’s like all those who think Lerner came in to lose money like he did…and he did! Do you think he meant to….??


Well it’s the old business versus football club debate
Is it about bringing a bit of money in or keeping your top goalscorer for half a season
(and I’m not a massive fan of either of our strikers)

Like I said in my post I think it’s a mystery, but I do think we might bring someone in which will explain it all
What happens if we’d have taken the 12 million at the beginning of the season like you say because it’s good business, we’d be seven goals worse off and probably lower down in the table

So I’m glad we didn’t

Well he will be on the bench if we don’t sign another forward as all the others are gone.

So do we think there's going to be another ninja style new signing announcement in the next couple of days where no one has a clue about it until we tell them?

I wonder if we’d go back in for Sarr?

No but West Ham are going to return Ings under sale of goods act rights due to a fault found.

Perhaps our medical team spotted something wrong with Ings that West Ham didn't!!

We have been sold a 'dud' enough times in the past . If so, good to see that our recently acquired shithousery is not just confined to the pitch.

We should have offered Ings to West Ham at the bargain price of £15m but made them call to claim it on a phone line charged at £1m per minute, as a nod of respect to their deceased chairman.

Villa Doctor: Unai, Ings is fucked.
Unai: Sell him to West Ham
West Ham Doctor: Danny, what age are you?
Danny: 22
West Ham Doctor: Can you run?
Danny: Sometimes
West Ham Doctor: Passed
