Aston Villa have bid £30m for Leon Bailey from Bayer Leverkusen.

Are they spending the Grealish money in advance or do they have deep pockets at the moment?

They’ve an owner who doesn’t make their manager sell as much shit as possible to raise funds or go without.

Villa and Purslow still playing championship manager. They have spent about 240m and sold 10m worth of players in 3 years. The outgoings are the sign of a shitly run football club. Players signed as hopeful midrange punts (£4m-8m) are given away 2 years later having barely kicked a ball. There are loads of them, it's either incredible incompetence or someone is making a killing on these deals.

Don’t envy the manager after klopp during the transition years.  Better not be Gerrard.  Can’t be arsed with the fuckwits turning on him rather than FSG.

I’d take Bowen over Bailey any day. Bailey isn’t even that good in Bundesliga.

You gonna stick some money on it?


I imagine the odds are shite and I don’t have the money or the bottle for a bet big enough to make it worthwhile. Might stick a quid on a Liverpool vs Rangers final. Imagine the scenes on here.

I had an open mind about Bowen. "Maybe Michael Edwards has seen something I haven't," I thought.

 

Then I watched this video, which seems to have been put together by someone who hates Jarrod Bowen and wants to make him look as terrible as possible, while pretending that the video features his "highlights." Got as far at 2 or 3 minutes in, it's mostly just him being fouled or putting in a hopeful cross. Yikes.

I’m fairly sure he rarely completes 90mins as well.

The wage bill will obviously be huge if we don't sell or loan people out. We have too many players! Probably another 6-7 to sell (Grujic and Awoniyi is a good start) and a midfielder and forward to sign.

 

Given we already have Salah Mane Firmino and Jota up front I'd be quite happy taking a punt on a young forward who Klopp can develop.

The Bowen shout is the exact same as the McGinn one from earlier; there's no way we sign him and I don't think he's even available. Contract till 2025. I don't know who is telling Pearce this stuff and why it's coming out, but it's nonsense once again.

I wouldn't read anything into that, rigid managers like Moyes will never change their back 4 or 2 sitters. That leaves 3 replacements from the 4 attackers on the pitch. Go right back through Moyes career and it will be wingers being his first sub 95% of the time.

It's the transfer equivalent of Operation Mincemeat, and Pearce is the body on the beach.

I'm getting concerned we haven't replaced Wijnaldum's 3000+ minutes yet. 

Those minutes will get shared between ox/keita/jones/shaq/milner/Thiago.  We have the numbers.

Konate takes Gini's non-homegrown spot.  Is that what you mean?

No. I meant pinka-pinka. Dosh. Mullah.

So another Jack Grealish?
