We wont be getting ben gibson im sure. People shouldnt believe every rumour. Would like it though lol 

I really can't say any more than I have, but the reason I suggest he will be signing is genuine. And the person that told me I would absolutely stake my life on. After my parents and wife this person is the person I trust the most with anything 

 

Edit... On a separate note, Lawrence shankland being scouted by qpr. Scored 25 goals this season (granted for Dundee) so he knows where the goal is. Should be relatively cheap replacement if britt was to leave.

Dean Smith after City game confirmed villa are in the market for centre forwards. Interesting he said centre forward in plural and not singular. 

Wesley is out for season and on froday he confirmed he could not guarantee Kodija (only other striker at club) will defo be at club come Jan

Given they in market for 2 strikers hopefully one is Britt. Nothing personal against Britt but rather get best deal possible for him and that could be this Jan when some clubs desperation to avoid drop leads to over-priced signings.

That's why I'm very confident. I'm not concerned about the wages at all

A bit cryptic Tudders. Is he going to play for free? Or is it just that you don’t have to pay them 😂

Wouldn’t trust signing a striker called shankland xD

Great news about Fulham potentially coming in for Assombalonga. If we can get a bidding war going between them and Aston Villa it will only be good news for the price we could get for him.

Anyone close the team news; how fit is Britt and how far off first team football? Is it even viable that a team in need of a striker will buy him, or is he too far off form for a potential suitor to think it’s a good idea?

So are we trying for Ben on a loan or permanent? 

Looking at both. Loan initially, permanent in the summer.

I know a guy who says that Ben Gibson owns a house near him in Great Ayton/Newton-under-Roseberry (I'm purposely being vague incase it's true), and that the he has been having massive renovations done to the house in recent months but they are nearly done now. From this he's using it as evidence that he's coming back imminently. I'm sceptical about it, but considering all the speculation I may as well stir the pot.

    • Businesses should be means tested much like people are for social welfare. There is no way bajillionaires like Branson should get away with furloughing staff, neither should businesses with 100's of millions of pounds income per year. 
    • Liverpool have reversed the decision now. Rightly so, in my opinion. 
    • I don’t think it’s down to the working class nature of football, boxers don’t get the same flack, I think it’s because clubs are very often the heart of a community. I remember chatting to a woman I met a few years ago who wouldn’t let her kids watch football because footballers were payed an obscene amount of money. I asked her if she allowed her kids to watch Hollywood movies, of course, she said!  
    • Wherever you stand on it... Footballers do always seem to be fair game when it comes to having a pop at the rich. Is it the working class nature of football? I've always wondered.  Where are the calls for musicians, actors, or even athletes from other well-paid sports to give up their earnings for the less fortunate? Or the bankers and CEOs who squirrel millions away into offshore accounts, taking from society and never giving back? At least footballers bring a bit of joy and entertainment to millions of people a couple of times a week. 
    • Yep, its a real sob story.  But in normal life, imagine if you could live comfortably on 10% of your takehome after buying your house and car. You would only have day to day expenses, holidays, etc. You take the rest of your salary and put it in one of those long term savings accounts (or whatever) that you cannot touch for 2 years. Then your salary is reduced and that 10% is no longer enough to cover your day to day. Regardless of how much actual money that is, when you try to force people to change their living circumstances you will always have push-back.  Now of course nobody earning decent money should be in that situation. It is recommended to split your savings, some in short term (easily retrieved), some in medium term (normally a wait period to retrieve) and some in long term (not normally retrievable) eg Property and pension.  On one hand it does highlight that these are just people, like all of us. On the other hand, they are fabulously wealthy and a target for those less well off who are revered when times are good and reviled when times are bad.  I don't blame the players for earning what they do, you make hay while the sun shines and we would all probably try to earn the same if circumstances were different. The clubs though are a different story and should be looking after the non mega-rich employees.
