BBC Sports reporting that Newcastle 'loadsa money' United have made contact with Coutinho in a bid to sign him on a permanent deal from Barcelona. Meanwhile The Hammers are after Ollie which, if true, gives us the additional challenge of replacing already-proven players rather than simply trying to strengthen what we've already got

IWatkins is a bit of an enigma, for me works hard runs the channels well, but his first touch isn’t always great he gets bullied a bit by the best central defenders and doesn’t score enough so if someone came in with a £50 million plus bid for him I might be tempted to let him go.

With Coutinho I think it comes down to price if we can get him for £20 million then I would take him but not at £30 million plus particularly now Buendia seems to be finding his feet

According to Fabrizio Romano a deal is almost finalised at 20m Euro.

Rumour mill this morning suggesting we are plotting a move for Kalvin Phillips

MenaceDortimer

1.) 11 Mar 2022 22:31:28
Would prefer Bissouma


2.) 14 Mar 2022 00:40:58
I would prefer Philips, I would go all out to get him if there was a chance. we are 2 or 3 players away from being at the same level as West Ham, it’s not impossible to get there we just need the right players in the summer, we are a much better team than West Ham were 3 seasons back but the recruited really well, some players that we were heavily linked with from the championship, Bowen and benrahma I think we missed a trick there, I think Philips could be our rice, we need better cover for the wing backs I can’t understand why we let target go just as we got some depth in that area, players I’d like to buy and have a realist chance of signing, Philips, winjaldum, Dennis and sarr from Watford, rashford, Walker peters, bissouma. sell luiz, Bert, sanson, Bailey, Davis, Keep archer for the bench and maybe brad young, I’m assuming Ramsey will keep improving he’s got potential and of coarse I’d try make coutinho permanent


3.) 14 Mar 2022 17:21:28
Some good picks Whack, for me I would look to get Bissouma, or Ndidi,for the holding midfielder role, Raphina or Sarr, for out wide, Shick or Gouiri as an additional striker and Hickey to replace Targett. The one position I don’t think an outstanding candidate is available is a beast of a centre half as I am not really sure about Gomez since his injury although I know one of the Ed’s is very complimentary about him.
In terms of departures I would be shipping out Steer, Hause, Targett, Trez, AEG, Hourihane, Wesley, Ings (reluctantly) Davis, and Traore, I would keep Bailey because I think he needs to be given time. With Archer I am torn between keeping him as a bench warmer or giving him a full season in the championship.


4.) 14 Mar 2022 18:50:07
I’m sure I mentioned Philips a few weeks ago, whack you said ‘you’ll never see Philips at villa park’, nothing wrong with aiming high!


5.) 14 Mar 2022 22:22:32
As I said in the first 2 lines of the post “if there was a chance of getting him” but your spot on I did say that and I don’t think it’s likely, I hadn’t foreseen Leeds capitulation though I’m really surprised how their season has unfolded and I think with bielse gone there is every chance raphinha and Philips will be on their bike.
lord I wouldn’t mind bissouma but I think ndidi is gone off the boil, Brighton and leister seasons not going to great even with those guys in the team, 1 thing I know for sure is that 1 player won’t transform us it’s going to take 3 or 4 more quality players, I agree bissoma could be 1 of them ?

Apparently Stevie G is now looking at both Franck Kessie and Luis Suarez. Both are now in the final six months of their current contracts. Suarez may be 35 but we know he's got plenty of bite left in him ???

MenaceDortimer

1.) 04 Mar 2022 20:48:08
Suarez may be a realistic target but Kessie is destined for Barcelona me thinks.


2.) 04 Mar 2022 21:01:29
I’ll be honest I hate the little beaver. would take kessie though.


 

 

08 Jan 2022 11:38:07
Sounds like we are considering Yves Bissouma from Brighton however, since he is currently on bail, it might be a risky move ?

MenaceDortimer

1.) 08 Jan 2022 12:40:54
I haven’t heard about that mate, what he do? I thought he was at the AFCON?


2.) 08 Jan 2022 13:25:37
I wasn’t aware he was on bail either, but Menace is spot on Bissouma and a bloke in his forties were charged with sexual assault in a club in Brighton in October.


3.) 08 Jan 2022 14:50:03
Wowzers that's a major red flag. surprised he was allowed to leave the country on bail I would of thought you would have to surrender your passport, that kind of drama is not a great look for a player.


4.) 08 Jan 2022 15:58:59
Polices released him as “under investigation” and as such is under no travel restrictions.


5.) 08 Jan 2022 16:51:38
I got really confused then as I thought he played for Bali but it’s actually Mali.


6.) 09 Jan 2022 00:24:23
Perhaps you’ve got a blocked up nose mate - Bali and Mali sound exactly the same that way ?


7.) 09 Jan 2022 11:09:46
Haha, must be. Best I take some decongestant.


 

 

03 Jan 2022 13:47:42
Looks like Axel is off to Napoli on loan despite Gerrard wanting him back at Villa - I'm assuming because he was getting limited game-time and that was set to continue if he returned to VP

I must have not been keeping an eye on the footie news yesterday - What is the matter with the Burnley board? Sacking the incredibly talented and loyal Dyche at this point in the season must go down as one of the most imbecilic decisions in football history (along with us appointing McLeish). At least he won't have to try and manage them out of the Championship once again ? ?

MenaceDortimer

1.) 16 Apr 2022 21:15:11
Not saying its the right or wrong decision but ultimately burnley are in a mess right now in terms of league position.

What doesn't sit right with me is you posting about loyalty etc but have dug out our manager who's had a January window and in that time has managed to entice one of the best footballers to wear the colours.

How can you spout off about loyalty towards another clubs manager who has them on the brink of relegation yet decide to question our manager who's had 1 window and inherited some absolute dross.

Make that make sense for me please

Does anyone know how the Premier League is planning to squeeze a quart into a pint pot regarding fixtures displaced by the World Cup? There is essentially a six week break from 12/13 Nov to Boxing Day during which time up to eight or nine games could be missed. I assume there will also be some cup and European games deferred as well during that time. Whilst the league is starting a week earlier than usual and finishing a week later, that could absorb maybe three or four games max. I can only assume we'll be seeing a lot more midweek games up to and after the break. However, that could leave some clubs who are in both cups and a European competition playing a regular three or four games a week. Imagine how much Arteta will be squealing about that!
Whilst our position may change depending on what business we do over the summer, currently Coutinho, Martinez, Cash, Digne, Luiz, Buendia, Watkins, Mings, Olsen and possibly McGinn would all be going to Qatar. That leaves the rest back home training with the youngsters, so I hope plenty of friendlies are being organised so that those staying behind can retain a semblance of match fitness. Thoughts?

I see that Mark 'Lawro' Lawrenson is predicting 2-1 to Villa today, so it must be true ?. With Digne still out, I think a draw is possible ?

17 Mar 2022 21:25:43
Thoughts on the England squad? Nice to see Marc Guehi included. I see fat Harry is still in, despite a consistently mediocre season for United and Jack is in, although seemingly still effected by his annual time-out with injury ?

Well, on the upside, Barrie scored for Swindon, Archer scored for Preston and Targett played well for Newcastle ?

Great piece of business. Other quality players are likely to follow given his commitment to the club. I think we’ll also see much more of his real talent now he has a permanent home - being on loan must be unsettling for a player of his quality, especially after the way things didn’t work for him at Barca.

I stand corrected - according to The Guardian a 20m Euro (£17.2m) deal has been agreed for Coutinho.

I said this would happen several weeks ago. Despite the moaning on this site and others, Targett is nowhere near the worst left back in the Premier League hence he's likely to be off for some regular first-team football. Admittedly Digne is better, but Targett is too good to be a second-fiddle bench-warmer in my opinion

Just as he scores the winner to put Egypt into the AFCON semi finals ?

So two managers are of the same opinion. Off you go then. Patience always pays off but apparently not for this generation - I want it all now or all my toys are straight out of the pram

Chambers and Buendia on the bench after their recent performances. Perhaps Stevie is waiting until we’ve gone 3-0 up before bringing them on ??

Hmmm. The most surprising thing about this thread is that Mr Caffu has apparently got 5 mates who haven’t already collapsed into a boredom related coma. This site is titled “Banter” for a reason . Enough from me now chaps. Adios x

Sadly, all three of them are on the bench - Young starting at the back.

I’m imagining the conversation went more along these lines:

Gerard: “I’ve just signed Digne as our number one left back”

Targett: “ What?! I’m A Premiership quality left back. Does that mean I’m now no longer a regular choice for the position?”

Gerard: “ Calm down, calm down. You’ll still get to play every other game as that’s how often Digne will be out injured “

Targett: “ Naff off, I’m off to dig the Geordies out of the relegation mire and become a fan-hero as opposed to the dogs abuse I get here every week.

Gerard: “Bye then”

I fully agree Whack. Funny though, a lot of posters on this site couldn't wait to see the back of him
