Same academy class as Dolan at Blackburn who Preston let go of at the same time, he's over 6 foot 4 and just turned 19 that is a pretty abnormal physical profile that you'd usually give a chance to as a Football Club. Whoevers making these decisions at Preston on scholars seems to not have a clue, their loss is our gain I guess.

Hi guys! PAOK fan here from Greece. You are getting a really hard worker in Akpom. He is a top lad and a good professional. When he first came, he was considered a bench player. It was the 2018-19 sea

Morsy nearly done

Williams fee nearly agreed. 1.75million rising to 2.5 (So 1.75 then 😂).

That Dolan kid looks a real talent to be fair. Agree with you that seems some odd decisions by Preston!

What is with people posting just full stops, is it a really slow morse code conversation?

It's actually a microdot like in spy films.  With the club putting the squeeze on any transfer information leaking, it's the only way for the ITK lads and lasses to get the word out without being caught 🤫

I know this name has been mentioned 100s of times before in relation to us and again, questions of where he fits in with us (same way as Roberts) but I wonder who's going to take Jota of Villa's hands? The lad didn't have a great season by all accounts and has only managed 10 minutes so far this season in Villa's 2nd round tie against Burton, he didn't even make the squad against Bristol City. I'd be shocked to see nobody even having a nibble before the end of the window.

When you put it like that, it’s not that shocking ☺️

HAH, yeah, but he's definitely not the first Championship player who's struggled to adapt to the Prem and then come straight back on a loan or permanent signing.

I would love Jota. He could be our Gaston. In terms of where to play him he could play as a 2nd striker off the main striker in a 3.5.1.1 as opposed to a our usual 3.5.2 in games where we might set up slightly differently. Would not require a huge tweak and we did it last year with Roberts in that role as a 2nd striker

Jota would be an interesting signing. He was the one I hoped we went for the season Villa decided to throw silly money at him. He hasn't played too much recently though so be interesting if he could get anywhere near the player he was.

I was going to suggest Bonatini as the 4th striker option but just seen hes gone to Grasshoppers 😏

I’m guessing he’s on a fairly big contract at moneybags-Villa. But at the end of the window Villa might find a 15k contribution appealing.

I got bleeding eye cancer from catching up with this thread. 12 pages of a lot of nothing sugarcoated with finances 😄
