    Looks like Gardner is on his way to blues with Jota coming to villa. Not the Jota from Wolves. The one from BCFC. Any good?

    I think that we’ll get Tyrone (15m) and El Ghastly (option to buy), Hause (option to buy) back, along with Whelan for another year (Smith likes him).

    So for me it’s bye bye to the 4 already gone, Henry, Hogan, Bjarni, Green, Bunn, Kalinic/Sarcic, Elmo, Taylor, Davis, Richards, RMC, RHM, Gardner, RDL, Bree,

    IN
    Guilbert
    Likely to be Jota
    Lolley swap for Henry + a few mi
    3 strikers
    2 mids
    2 def

    And a Partridge in a pear tree.

    Far as I can recollect Bongo, he's younger, fitter and a better crosser than Albert. He has missed a few sitters against us so maybe not the best under severe pressure.

    Do you think shipping the players quickly off the wage bill is something to do with FFP?
    Im sure as new owners, they think they have 3 years off FFP and considering we are going to benefit to the Tune of 100mill, they are not doing anything wrong! I can see Xia going as well, he looked like johny no mates in the VIP area, no one wants to interview the cryptic claw!

    Ps, cant see Green or Davis going just yet.

    TD for all the FFP stuff the ones let go are at the end of their contracts mate and not up to the standards of the PL so the club has done the right thing by them to release as early in the window as possible for them to crack on with their own careers.

    If someone came in for Green or Davis I reckon he'd let them go, neither for me look like they'll make the grade but I'll happily eat my words. I agree with all of Exiled's nominations.

    A word on Mark Bunn - he's sat on the sidelines season after season, with the number of keepers we have been through recently surely he should have shown some ambition to be a no.1 somewhere rather than always the bridesmaid? Or is it a case of - always professional, did the job that was asked of him and never moaned, whilst taking a good wage?

    Bongo - Lolley plays for Forest and if what you read on Twitter is true we were after him previously.

    Going to be an interesting month or two, hope most of the business is done before pre-season friendlies.

    Thats about 15 million off the wage bill, blimey, all of a sudden were are Rich!!
    Just need to get Xia off the books, bad egg.

    I disagree on Xia Dave, he had good intentions and big plans, just couldn't access his money due to Chinese law but found us decent owners when all of us put trust in Wyness. You could see how happy he was with the Wembley win.

    Gardner - never rated him but wish him well, Jota will have to improve to be up to the job so our Dean must see potential in him.

    Im still not sure anout Xia, when he came in he said he had opened an account in a London bank with 500mill.....just for Villa.
    From the sounds of it i have more money than him in my bank account.
    Watched the YT clip with the owners and Purslow, great plans, lots of well dons, busy summer etc etc, where was Xia. Got to be on the way out?

    Anyone else think Purslow is a bit creepy, compliments everything the owners say and while looking at them, get A room....

    Think you are spot on about Purslow, clearly a top businessman, but very slimy.

    Well dont hold your breath on Xia stumping up!
    Now we are in the prem, thats a good price. Buy for 25 mill if he bangs in 20 next season he will be worth double that, thats the perfect model we want Mr Purslow? Ummmmm all that lovely jubberly money! Now thats success!

    Purslow is definitely one I wouldn't warm to.

    £25M - definitely a risk worth taking in today's mad world of PL money, hardest position to fill in a team and so tends to be the priciest. Reports suggesting we're looking for another keeper, disappointing to see Jed's not been given this spot as I think he's earned it?

    Totally agree, weve gambled enough on dodgy keepers, Jed has been a rock and worthy of the No 1 shirt. Get rid of all the other keepers then buy a number 2

    Indeed Bongo. Apparently released from his contract 🥳🥳🥳🥳🥳 after signing a variation agreement. 🧐😳

    Which means Iím am guessing they have paid him off.
