I'm not sure about Abraham at the top level, but hes only just 21. With the way the market is going, £18m is a steady enough investment.

Championship sides are already paying 10m+ for proven championship goalscorers.

I know it's The Metro but they have reported that Chelsea have accepted an £18M bid from Wolves, this is the first report I can find with a definite accept, rather than just Wolves being interested or getting ready to bid.

Could be a stumbling block as players cannot play for 3 clubs in one season, Abraham played for Chelsea U23 and also in the Charity shield as well as for villa

Clubs just don't learn do they? If that was us I think I'd be close to done with football. These dinosaurs fail over and over and just keep getting jobs. Even Bruce has already got a job lined up after failing miserably at Villa and leaving them in a mess.

Amazes me how these managers still get linked and get jobs. They are all outdated, and mostly.plag dour football.

I think this attitude is gradually prevailing with fans. Sadly not with owners / chairmen yet.

Not sure Bruce left them in a mess - he inherited a mess when they was hovering above the relegation zone. Then took them to a play off final.

Things never worked out this season for him but he was not helped with the shenanigans of the summer. He's a smooth operator at this level and his record shows that.

Most Wednesday fans are delighted with his appointment which would suggest their is some life in the old dinosaur yet.

Villa fans in the main hated him. This season they had an extremely kind opening set of fixtures, he left them with little chance of finishing in the automatics. He chose to let Elphick go on loan to Hull, leaving them with just 2 centre backs, one of which he played at right back and Jedinak out of position at centre back. He then played a right back at left back. Now they've had to recall Elphick because they were down to one half-fit centre back. Complete clown, which is great news for us because they should easily be top 3.

Karanka left this morning, just come up on the transfer ticker for sky (no web page article yet though)

"08:32
BREAKING NEWS

Aitor Karanka leaves Nottingham Forest.

The club wrote on their official website: "Aitor Karanka has asked to be released from his contract as the manager of Nottingham Forest football club.

"The club have agreed to this request and the terms of departure have been agreed. Both parties wish each other every success for the future. There will be no further comment from either party.

"Simon Ireland will take charge of first-team affairs until a new manager is appointed."

Credit the Leeds manager for giving this youngster his opportunity. If only Moore had the same confidence in our talented youngsters.

Derby had the perfect storm against us everything they touched went in. That back pass from Rodriguez still gives me nightmares. However we needed derby to turn up today. We're 9 points behind Leeds as it stands. We really need to win tomorrow just to reduce it to 6!

Stoke and Middlesbrough away and Norwich at home are 3/4 Leeds next games we need to keep winning and we might be able to get within a couple of points as that's a hard run
