Long must be gutted but no doubt he'll have a part to play some time during the game. Yacob will be a big miss.

time and channel is that on?I don't think the highlights are on until Thursday night. Will hopefully see the goals on sky sports news later though.
Latest Chris Lepkowski tweet hot off the press:That's great news. I suppose that's about as official as we can get without actually being official!
"Yacob is signed. Not made official by club due to one or two bits of paper work which remain outstanding but he now is a #wba player"
Interesting that twitter and the news are very quite in Brazil about this attempted last minute poach of the player.Well I'm glad we all understand what's going on now!
In fact the Brazilian media states he is on the way to the UK to be unvailed as our player. Botofogo have also announced the signing of Nicolas Loderio who could be viewed as an alternative to Yacob.
I think he is as good as ours. - Don't hold it against me if I'm wrong!!
An Eye on the South American market, Botafogo negotiates with Claudio Yacob, who had terminated the contract with ARG-Racing this month. The Alvinegro was about to close with the steering wheel, which has preferred to play in Europe and was enticed with an offer from West Bromwich, England. Still, the Argentine player did not rule out the Alvinegro and ordered a considerable increase with respect to the initial offer. The board rejected into the auction, was angered by the attitude of the athlete and define the transaction as unlikely.
Yacob's attitude is the opposite of another possible strengthening. Nicolas Lodeiro interested alvinegra with the proposal and is in final negotiations with the Alvinegro. The Uruguayan hit the last destalhes with Glorious, you want to advertise it so official on Thursday. The midfielder is out of contract, provided that the agreement with Ajax-HOL expired in June this year. Any international transaction would be finalized by Friday, closing date of the transfer window.

I can see this one going tits up.I can't imagine any Baggies fans being cock sure to be honest. We are eternal pessimists. Just hope that we can come to some agreement but I won't believe anything until it's official one way or the other.
Everyone is so cock sure that he will be coming back here, its got gazumping written all over it
Peace goes for the cheap option again.....Actually it was technically Villa's cash. So much easier to spend someone elses money. Ok so it felt like a bit of an anticlimax at the time but like most people I think it may be yet another masterstroke by JP and DA. It's a calculated gamble just like all of our managerial appointments in the past. Unfortunately that's the ballpark we have to play in without a megarich backer. Personally I can't wait for next season now a line has finally been drawn under this.
Absolutely disgraceful, especially when you read that probably our preferred choice, is now the manager of Norwich City, at least Delia has some b*lls, and some cash, not like our accountant.
I was stunned when I read this this morning. Incredible by the Albion, yet again. Hats off to Peace, great work (again!)Absolutely brilliant
[Cynical Mode] I just hope it is not going to be a reason not to buy anyone in the summer though...
"Well we reduced the HSTs so we have decided to sell Long and Odemwingie and get Syvain Helikes-Cake on a free. We feel we are ready for the new season..."
