Hughes spent madly and badly with no oversight. Now the club is between the proverbial rock and hard place. To survive we need a striker and a CB to replace Nelsen. If we go down, even if we don't spend penny in this window, the off-season will be... interesting, if only to see how Fernandes handles it. At the moment it's a gamble, does he stick or twist? His money, my club. I don't like it but I don't think he has much choice.

If Remy wants to get relegated whilst working for a horrible, shady cockney spiv at a club that is run like a fucking circus... why not at least do it amongst his compatriots? Arf.

I flipping blinking hate Harry Redknapp.

To be fair there are a quite a few of his compatriots already in the Shepherds Bush ring.

The other day Willie Miller said this about our possible signing of Ryan Fraser:



Well, Aberdeen have today accepted a bid from Bournemouth for him, so I dread to think what Miller makes of their chances of promotion to the Premier League.

Norwich have put in an official bid for Gary Hooper. £5 million, which is only £1 million less than a bid from Southampton which Celtic knocked back 12 months ago.

Norwich have also simultaneously bid the same amount for Danny Graham.

Sunderland have also put in a bid for Danny Graham who is apparently unsettled and wanting to move back to the north east.

Swansea have allegedly bid £3 million for a Jones, and it is that big lumbering forward from Stoke.

Neither of these deals make any sense.

What can I say? We're a frugal lot.

I'd be delighted with either but I suppose there's a chance we could get both and sell Morison to some rich, promotion-chasing Championship side. Or perhaps Holt himself, who hasn't recaptured the form from last season.

We face competition from Sunderland for Graham but with Stephen Fletcher up there he'd have a better chance of being the main striker at Norwich.

Apparently we're 'leading the race' to sign Bradford City's flash-in-the-pan one-season-wonder Nahki Wells.

Woop-di-do. I'd much rather hope we can get Norwich to flog us Vaughan on a permanent deal.

perhaps Holt himself


You mean 'the donkey who's been scoring for the Canaries'?

I love saying that to Ms Felicity (it's from a 'Bet Victor' ad). She was brought up in/vaguely supports Norwich, and hates Dennis Pennis (who delivers the line in a very silly cockney accent). And Holt is a useful stick to beat them/her with cos her Cumbrian mother was thrilled when she found out where he was from, but less so when he tweeetd the fact he was Tory scum.

Having been snubbed by renowned greedy fucker Loic Remy, the NUFC focus is back on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

I really hope we sign him, if only because there's a superb Black Betty style chant in there somewhere.

And in answer to the original question, yes he is

I'm certainly struggling to understand why Stoke would sell Jones for £3million. That would represent a £5million loss after just 2.5 years for a striker who is only 28 and is currently first choice and scoring for the team. If they could recoup their £8million outlay for him then maybe, but that offer sounds like one that should be rejected out-of-hand.

Norwich's bid for Hooper has, unsurprisingly, been rejected.

Outright or is this going to take a better offer?

I think Norwich will follow up with a bigger offer. Lennon said 'Our case is simple - you're not going anywhere' but he is still waiting to hear back from Hooper's agent.

Hooper has today turned down "what he believes to be" Celtic's final offer regarding a new contract.

His current deal runs out in summer 2014. Celtic have two options: sell him now for a decent fee but lose him for the Juventus games, or wait till the summer and get a bit less for him.

Supposedly Norwich upped their bid to £8.5 million yesterday, which is a little bit more like it, but Celtic said no. Meanwhile, apparently Spurs are interested in him now too.

Personally I think he'd be insane to jump ship before the Juventus tie -- he has all summer to work out his future, and a goal or even two against Juve would hugely increase his standing -- but hey ho.

it looks like mike ashley turning up to watch the reading game has lit a fire under a few arses. massadio haidara and mapou yanga-mbiwa (seriously cannot wait to hear that in a geordie accent) both look to be as good as signed, with substantial gossiping going on about yoan gouffran and moussa sissoko and all.

i wish them all the best of luck at qpr.

which would certainly be something. could be the classiest squad to ever get relegated. could be the saving of alain pardeaux's bacon. could be a pile of premature shite designed to suck in dreamers like me.

ooh la la.

Swansea players have apparently asked Danny Graham to stay. This follows on from the fans chanting it against Stoke.

If any club who were falling like a stone needed to make some signings it was Aston Villa but incompetent hasn't made a single unretarded decision since he walked through the fucking door daddy's boy gimp Randolph Lerner III doesn't seem to realise it through his presumably crystal meth haze. That prick is the tightest/skintest/stupidest multiple billionaire I've ever heard of.

Punctuation is an optional extra for me at this time of night after a heroic intake of alcohol but I haven't felt more pissed off to be a Villa fan in my lifetime and since I started supporting them in the 3rd division and have witnessed the atrocities of Graham Turner, Ellis and space alien David O'Leary, Lerner has accomplished something pretty special.

I don't feel sorry for me I feel sorry for my youngest son who is too good to have to put up with all his big four (and arsenal and Liverpool) supporting pals. He's too young to realise that football isn't important and that all footballers are a pack of overpaid wankers.

Anyway - no transfer news at Villa.

San Lorenzo have failed in their ridiculous attempt to sign Coloccini for nothing.
