I feel I have explain as you clearly missed the point totally... So here we go.

Maddison HAD to be sold or the club faced real financial difficulties based on over spending

Villa WOULD have to had to sell or the club faced real financial difficulties based on over spending

 

Wrong we could have solved that by borrowing against CR. Our problem was that would have been seen as really bad mismanagement.

Villa, I believe, no longer own their ground, and what they owe in total would not be covered by the sale of one player, nor even the whole squad suspect

but do carry on slagging off our club, if it severs some purpose in your life

Jesus... Gibson would be a fantastic signing for us. If he doesn't sign for Middlesbrough it will be down to Burnley and finances.  Would be sad to see Cantwell go as he is a talented lad but losing him and Buendia would be unacceptable in my books.

Gibson still hasnt played a game of football in two years.. Then again to be fair Krul was a bench warmer for a year at Brighton and look how he came back from that

Gibson would be quite expensive cover for CB as his wages are very high at £45k a week. Suggests either Godfrey or Klose will leave?

If we were to lose both Cantwell and Buendia our attacking threat diminishes considerably. Finding like for like replacements would be very difficult. Emi needs a new contract as well by the sound of things!

Another midget just what we need.  Requirement is for players to give us more physicality and that comes with size ourfront 4 in PL Buendia, Cantwell, Pukki, and Hernandez all small which hampers us defensively.  Lewis again small up against giant CB's a forlorn effort also Aarons a veritable hobbit.  Get more physical athletes otherwise we will suffer.

I can’t see it happening, he has been out on loan for at least the last 3 seasons & he’s 24 years old. You would think he would have been closer to West Ham’s first team by that age.

Don't think it is any secret that Norwich are looking for another defensive midfielder. 

I wouldn't believe anything you see on EFL Hub though.

Watched him 3 or 4 times when playing on loan for Bradford. Fans loved him and often the pick of the team. They knew he was a step above.

Neat, progressive and keen to have the ball. Wouldn't be against having him for sure if one of our 'smaller' (😉) midfielders were to leave.

It is difficult when talking about players who haven't been playing much for clubs. All the usual assumptions are rolled out. And that is understandable.

But look at Traore. Now rated at £100M. And our club pulled Crook, Bowen and Culverhouse from Spurs dungeons.

It is always nice when the club buys a player we have heard of and maybe seen. But sometimes we just cannot afford them.

May I be the first to say he was ****ing brilliant for me on a game of football manager 18 so we should sign him.

Norwich were linked to Cullen earlier in the year, along with a bunch of other teams, so that either makes this more likely or is just a rehash of an old rumour!

Can't argue that he'd be a good addition in the midfield though.

Couple of points William.

I do not slag off our club, I question the custodians of our club whilst also praising some of the great work they have done. Try and keep it civil.... There's a good chap.

Point two, I really don't care for Villa as much as a lot on here, I just point out some similarities you seem to have forgotten. In fact Villa is not a club I wish to discuss on here... Unfortunately they have taken over from Fulham as everyone's whipping boys to the point of obsession.

Was knocking on England's door couple of seasons ago but not happened for him at Burnley but would be great in this league with regular football IMO.

Chris Reeve has said he ‘thinks’ there will be one to launch the kit and it seems a lot of supporters have taken that to mean there definitely will be. 

The publicity shots for the new kit will have been done before the end of last season, so I can’t see how a new signing can be used to launch the kit. 

Could be a signing announcement tomorrow of course, but don’t think it will be used to launch the kit.

Would Chris Reeve know these sorts of things? Not going to hold my breath.

I guess he has some contacts at the club and gets titbits of information every now and then. Whether he has been told something or just guessing is another thing. 

I wouldn’t imagine the club would do a signing and a shirt launch on the same day. Normally you’d space things out, but with a short pre-season and all the players returning to Colney soon they may just throw a lot of announcements all together.

It might be Chris Reeve modelling the new kit, let’s wait and see.
