    Fair play to West Bromwich, you can have him for 80k a week! Saying that I still would've liked to have him cos WHERE THE LEFT BACKS AT?

    Thought Femenia looked decent at LB on Saturday.

    Like any Spanish player brought up through the Barca/Madrid acadamy hes got the technique to play with both feet.

    He put in a decent cross with his left foot.

    Maybe Gino thinks we are covered for LB.

    I think a CB and keeper are more urgent.

    Vermaelen on loan or cheap permanent to solve both issues. However, Silva has been vocal in the press (which is different from doing it quietly behind closed doors) about wanting 2 players for each position. Gino signs the cheques but I think Silva has called this one.

    The only way I could vaguely see this being true is their was a dramatic shift, and Djedje is brought back in from th cold to be the 2nd RB option and Femenia then the LB competition. But I think it’s a bit of a reach to be reality.

    Vermaelen used to play for Arsenal, my Arsenal mates will include my team in their football discussions!

    It's a yes from me.

    He’s the left footed Arsenal defender we’ve never had. Or something. They are my 5th team so I’m keen for it happen.

    Vermaelen to Villa rumours in press tonight.

    Hogg going the other way to Barcelona one would imagine . Bus quests and Iniesta getting on a bit now.
     
  10. Okaka last minute replacement for Neymar too. Do Villa have a sell-on clause for Hogg or maybe it's yet another loan ?

    I think his attitude is key here. My understanding of the way it played out (and please correct me if I'm wrong here) is that we bid for him and our offer was accepted, we then failed to agree personal terms, WBA bid for him, this was accepted and they agreed on personal terms.

    Now unless WBA also had a bid accepted at the same time as us and the player negotiated with each club side by side, then it appears WBA were not that fussed about signing him either. If they did have a bid accepted at the same time as us then it wasn't reported, only our bid was which is strange if they did. So it appears they only went in for him after we failed to agree terms, so he's gone to a club who were not fussed about signing him, but only signed him because we failed to agree terms. You'd think that would bother a player but it clearly makes no odds to him.

    They offered him more money. End of.
     
  14. Fixed. For clarification.

    There is a significant amount of hearsay with this but it is pretty key that we were the ones to pull out of the deal. In a previous post I had offered up this may be for a number of reasons but money is obviously most likely. Would suggest it also seems odd if WBA are happy to pay him £75k/week if reports are to be believed especially on a four year deal. It may be the latter part, given his injury record, that swung this.
