Just got in from work, hoped it was a 5pm transfer window 'slamming shut' so I didn't have to put up with the sensationalist bullshit from Solhekol and Darmy whatshisname. 16 year old bless him is hoping Villa make some superb last minute signings. The innocence of youth eh? He'll soon learn...

I knew someone who worked as a “journalist” for the S@n on their Sports desk. Transfer rumours pretty much entirely made up. One of the few things that didn’t have to go through lawyers before publication.

Its telling Sky Sports Rob Doresett is stationed at Forest and not Villa for the final day.
No reports at all on Villa.

We know Emery said as well as Duran, "I want to balance the squad by trying to get another striker but only with the idea to improve us"

So if there isn't one to improve  us then we won't sign a striker and wait till the summer.

I hate transfer deadline day.  It celebrates chucking unsustainable sums of cash at each and every problem like it’s a good thing.  I don’t get the appeal.

Yours,

Grumpy old man

Yes see also the transfer spend calculator - let’s celebrate the stupidity and greed in football.

My memory of Bert is that he was always injured. I would like to see his playing stats.

I've no problem with Ings being sold, just not at a value where WHU think they've got the better of the deal. I'd have thought £25 mill was closer to what he's worth to a relegation threatened team.

I think I would rather not get the extra £3m.

Agreed, £12m plus add-ons up to £3m is very generous. I doubt very much we'll see the extra £3m, certainly not if it's based on first team starts.

Its based on them staying up so we will see it.

Who decided that the deadline for doing your tax return was the same day as the window slamming shut? Like I earn enough to pay tax anyway.

“Keep an eye on Villa this evening”

James Nursey, Talkshite.

Alex Crook just said the same thing, Talkshite again though.

You sure he didn't mean The Villa on Love Island? Will be a lively one tonight I reckon.

I see the clickbaits are doing their level best in Newsnow with NEWS OF A TRIPLE TRANSFER on a busy night for Villa. Fuck em, I’m not clicking. Honestly.

Really disappointing window. We upgraded a left back. Whoopy fucking dooo.  The expectations on Durans shoulders are through the roof.
