So Southampton are said to want 50 million for JWP. Should we push the boat out then and smash our transfer record once again?
My feeling is we should go for it but sell one or two players to help finance the deal.
What are your views lads?

Yes I have to agree Mark, no use pussyfooting about mate, and complaining later in the season.
Get it done, why look at him in the first place, we knew what he would cost.

Agree with you both

Try and get some money for hourihane, nakamba, even el ghazi

That might give us 20 million towards it.

Not for me guys not only is it too much but if we have only one big money move then I don’t think JWP is the enforcer type we need for me I would be asking Brighton about Bissouma.

So would I John in the ideal world, but as it stands we have shown no interest in him at all mate.

Not that we know of Dave I agree, but then again we hadn’t heard anything about Ings before it happened.

True mate, I just want a decent DM, that is the position that would transform Villa in my opinion mate.

Agree Dave, it’s like the final piece of the puzzle. First year in the championship we were a mess all over the park, yet we had Jedinak, can’t remember the star but it’s either we didn’t win a game without him playing, or we didn’t lose any game in which he started. Either way it highlights just how influential that role is and how even when the rest of the sides a mess, that position can be the difference!

The problem with most of the speculation here is that we have to find buyers for our players and in the market at the minute there’s very few clubs prepared to spend what clubs want or what players are worth, everyone wants a deal. Usually one of the relegated clubs will pay up for four or five players but that doesn’t seem to have happened.

On here we all know despite his record last season, El Ghazi is so hit and miss that if you want to achieve something he isn’t your man, the problem is if we know that 99% of clubs happy to pay for him will work it out before a deals done, (unless of course Tony Xia is back in club ownership😂) .

He's involved in a club alright Chris but it involves someone called Bubba, a shower and a bar of soap.

In all fairness I don't think it would take the full £50m I think they'd find it very hard to turn down 40, but a lot of it would depend on how much JWP wants the move. More often than not these days a player gets what they want regardless of a clubs valuation.
