Apparently Saudi club Al-Hilal have formally made contact over the signing of Digne. If he's let go, I hope we've got a replacement in the pipeline or we're going to find ourselves short at the back with all the upcoming fixtures ?

Still being linked with Emile Smith Rowe in a potential player-plus-cash deal with Dougie moving the other way. Although Dougie has tailed off a bit lately (apart from the winning penalty obviously) I'm not sure this would give us any significant advantage.

I posted a month or so ago that Arsenal are confident of landing Dougie either in January or the summer. If it’s January then the only way Arsenal can do it is with a player swap deal and apparently the are willing to offer us a choice of ESR, Nketiah, Nelson, Tierney to name but a few. If it’s cash then the deal won’t be done until the summer.

I'm more interested in the firepower upfront.

It's a dream signing but.

As of today Liverpool and one Saudi team has asked the availablity of a certain PSG player.

Wonder what (except the money) would it take to get him to join (and he's on free now) .

Maybe the Mighty Emery who personally visited him and got him to join PSG instead of Madrid?

Mbappe does speak quite highly of Unai.

Imagine Mbappe at the Villa ?

Arsenal don’t have the funds for either Dougie or Toney. Player swaps the only option for them so not particularly attractive offer.


4.) 02 Jan 2024 22:53:07
I love your ambition Ads. It’s not completely out of the question but it may just be as likely as my upcoming marriage to Julia Roberts ?


5.) 03 Jan 2024 07:40:00
Can I have an invite to the reception?


6.) 04 Jan 2024 02:51:48
I don't see Dougie going anywhere if I'm honest or any other key players, Unai won't want to sell and I'm not so sure Dougie would want the move either, Villa are chasing a top four place and a possible title push so they will likely strengthen the squad, we are already very well positioned in the league so why would players want to leave, Villa are going places under Emery that is for sure and our owners ambition is huge.

Red Bull Salzburg's midfielder Oscar Gloukh is on our radar for the January transfer window apparently. Not sure that any additional midfielders are the priority right now ?

MenaceDortimer

1.) 12 Dec 2023 16:02:58
No, I think it is more the agents getting excited about our form thinking they can drum up interest. A right back, maybe. A goalkeeper slightly less likely. Other than that I don't expect any business in January.


2.) 12 Dec 2023 19:36:18
We could with an attacking midfielder, but rb, and 2nd striker a must for me in jan


 

 

30 Nov 2023 12:39:06
Latest on the rumour mill is that we are looking at Lens and Ghana midfielder Salis Abdul Samed as a potential replacement should we be forced to sell Dougie ? Oh, and we're also touting Dendoncker in the January sales, with interest from Everton

MenaceDortimer

1.) 03 Dec 2023 10:10:28
Can’t see Dougie going anywhere tbh. The kinda money we will want for him Arsenal won’t pay, they already spent £100m on a midfielder in summer, we will expect a figure of £70+


2.) 05 Dec 2023 18:58:36
Apparently rumours down Emirates way is that whether it’s January or the summer they are confident of landing Dougie, if it’s January then given Arsenal’s spending to date it’s got to be a player plus cash deal the likes of ESR, Nketiah, Nelson, Tomayasu, Tierney, and Tavares are all available allegedly. If it’s the summer we can choose between straight cash or a similar one to that outlined above. Interesting ?

According to Football Insider, we're looking at a potential move for Athletic Bilbao forward Inaki Williams in the January window. Don't know much about him, but we could do with a bit more depth up front ?

Menace, Williams goal return in La Liga is nothing to write home about 67 goals in 319 games so that’s about a goal every 5 games that said however his brother Nico Williams is someone we have been interested in for some time along with many other clubs and I can’t help wondering whether our interest may be designed to encourage Nico to join us. For those of us old enough a la the Bruce/Neil Rioch transfers many years ago.

At least we only got fined £180k for the argie-bargie with Brentford and no points deduction ?

I see the womens team are in bother. Carla Ward brought on Noelle Maritz in their 7-0 league cup win over Sunderland on Wednesday. Unfortunately she had already played for Arsenal in earlier rounds before joining Villa so she was ineligible.

MenaceDortimer

1.) 26 Jan 2024 16:48:56
Can’t understand how they missed that, really bad organisation.


2.) 26 Jan 2024 21:53:36
How does the player not know that she already played in the competition, to much hairspray maybe ?


3.) 27 Jan 2024 11:46:51
Shows how tinpot women's football is.


4.) 27 Jan 2024 17:42:01
Stupid comment Danny when it has happened to professional men's teams often enough. It was either Barnsley or Charlton who did the same thing in one of the cups in the last couple of years.

Mowbray favourite for Blues job apparently. Marquee's appointments all round then - presume Steve Cooper's not good enough ?

Thought Michael McIntyre was taking over, but then found out no-one would take it seriously


2.) 06 Jan 2024 13:51:44
Got to be bargain basement, whoever gets the job . A decent name will want money to spend, not sort out the kids and loanees, they seem to survive on .

Looks like most of the Legia Warsaw yobs have been let off scott free - just seven still under investigation and 39 charges dropped. What are UEFA up to? Someone was throwing flares and setting fire to stuff ?

MenaceDortimer

1.) 05 Jan 2024 14:52:01
IMenace I don’t see that this release of fans is anything to do with UEFA. They were released by the Crown Prosecution Services, presumably as they didn’t have enough evidence and they have said the decision could be reversed if they had new evidence given to them.


 

 

02 Jan 2024 11:18:53
Rooney sacked. No surprise there then.

MenaceDortimer

1.) 02 Jan 2024 12:11:25
And he was doing such a great job?


2.) 04 Jan 2024 17:49:36
The life span of a blues manager rarely stretches to a season these days.

Next one off to the Middle East perhaps? He certainly doesn’t seem to be a first choice pick lately. Can’t see walking out of training getting him anywhere though ?

Ed- I guess having an active interest in a player and them being made available, let alone signed, may well be at the opposite ends of the reality spectrum ?

MenaceDortimer

{Ed001's Note - very true. Though PSG have been known to make stupid transfer decisions in the past, so you never know.}

According to the press, Chambers rejected offers from three Championship teams, even though we were open to let him leave. Presumably because no-one would mach the money he's currently on.

Well at least it’s not another bunch of gambling shysters. I see Denise Coates has paid herself another £221 million in salary this year whilst the Oatcakes are still struggling for a promotion-winning team. Puzzling ?

Bin this Ed if it’s in anyway legally contentious

It may be unkind but I think we need intelligent players to move us forward and I’m not sure Dier is one. As VJ says, as a squad player maybe ?

Hopefully that will also make us an attractive proposition in the transfer window ?

Emery will not play a first team to start with but have enough power on the bench to win it. He wants a trophy so I don’t think he’ll throw it away willingly ?
