There is no way Villa should have paid £28m for Watkins let alone anything north of £30m if the add-ons come into play in the final analysis Watkins does not any experience at a higher level than the Championship. Anything more than Brighton paid for Maupay last summer is just a nonsense.

Bayer have just completed the transfer of Patrik Schick from Roma for £22m by way of random comparison.

Listened to George Caulkin from the Athletic going into raptures over Newcastle's sudden burst of activity you would have thought they'd signed Messi and they could but they would still be playing the slightly dull somewhat slow, marginally better than Pulisball Bruceyball and bolting Callum Wilson onto the front of that is putting lipstick on the pig. Apparently Wilson will be wearing the hugely iconic number 9 shirt I guess George knows his audience but speaking as a neutral what a load of old tosh.

Both Wilson and Fraser are kind of okay but oddly enough the most interesting is the one that seems to have generated the least attention that is Jamal Lewis for £14m ( the same player that Liverpool declined to pay £20m for earlier in the window) from Norwich. 

Everton are a bit like the bad poker player they keep losing and after a while you feel bad for them but not bad enough to stop taking their money. The thinking this window is a bit more joined up than before. How can we ever forget when they splurged a bunch of money on 4 number 10's in the same window? 

I like all of the players they have signed but I think they are kidding themselves if they think they have signed peak Allan or Rodriguez but even at 29 both are good enough to grace the top half of the Premier League certainly for the next couple years. Less keen on Doucoure but he at least brings a different skill set to the other 2. It goes without saying they have spent a lot of money on this and they probably need to unload a few of last years mistakes.

One of the best wing backs in the league for me. Scores, creates and played his part in a more than decent defence at the Wolves.

Will be interesting to see how he gets on in a slightly different system given how well drilled Nuno had that team.

It would seem Villa have learnt nothing after last year. They'll have blown over £200m in 3 windows.

Memphis Depay has now agreed personal terms ahead of a potential move to Barcelona. However, Lyon and Barca are yet to agree on a fee for the forward.

Barcelona officials have met with Arsenal to discuss terms over the transfer of Héctor Bellerín, but the Gunners will only listen to offers within the region of €25m for the Spain international. (Source: SPORT)

Not sure how true this?? It was on Wiki though so absolute rubbish no doubt...checked Cardiff forums and they dont have a clue either!! He has deleted all social media accounts aswell....something will come out later, must be serious though


 His contract was terminated on 9 September 2020 due to an alleged 'breach of contract. Mendez Laing had his contract cancelled as he was found out to be part of an underground fight club in the Cardiff Area

Wish I could say we'll be signing a striker of similar quality.

Everton seem overloaded in Midfield now, I wonder if Gylfi Sigurddson &/or Fabian Delph are on their way out?  I was shocked that Delph is only 30, i would have guessed 67

I'd consider Delph as a cheaper option at defensive mid. There will be better out there but if we are just looking in the British market, he might be a good loan option.

I've always rated Sigurdsson, definitely a goalscoring midfielder and one of the best free kick specialists in the country.  I think we tried to sign him before. I think it would have to be on loan, as Everton, typically, will want top dollar in a sale.

Just the kind of keeper we should have been in for. Fulham done some good  business so far.

Villa have overpaid for Watkins, but he is still a dangerous striker, far superior to anyone we have up top.
All time favourite player: Jan Kozak
