Wasn't it supposed to "strengthen the links" between us and Kroenke's Rapids? Probably more like a money laundering operation.

I guess it raises our profile in USA when we start buying players from there, but I have more hope for the GK to make an impact. I can't see him beating Ramsdale out, but hopefully he stops him getting complacent. I love Ramsdale's attitude. Reminds me of Keown with the ****housery!
But the guy is unknown in the states and never played for the us team at any age. He is not even rated by mls standard

This is a guy we really won't want to miss out on, especially as we don't have any midfielder even close to this profile at the club*. Has everything we need in a LCM IMO. Close to a breakout, impressive every time I've seen him, belies his age. Would understand the apprehension but he's a can't miss. A Gravenberch alternative. I'm a massive fan.

(*We do have one but he's 15).
Yeah an 18 year old kid from Aston Villa is what we need for next season. I’m sure that will send a message to the other teams.

With all due respect...
No more 18 year old players who can't handle the pressure, aren't consistent in their performance and need time to develop.
We need players who will make an impact from day one.

We have patino who is 18 in the same position. Hutchinson and Flores also 18. It’s like you can’t have enough 18 year olds.

Well Bellingham is the dream for that LCM position but if we can't get him and this guy is seen as a great alternative I'm all for going all in. How much he likely to cost?

Happy with Eddie renewing.

Bringing someone of his quality in would probably cost 10-20 mill anyway, plus around the 40-70k range in wages.

We know he's at least decent at the PL level, a new guy might flop completely. Also knows the club, tactical system etc.

He's also only 22 and is clearly improving. People are acting like we're renewing a 31 year old Lacazette.

We haven't learned anything have we ?! Putting Eddie on 79k + contract means we are only going for one star striker (Jesus). Knowing our luck regarding injuries, Jesus will be out for 3-4 months per season meaning we rely on Eddie to decide games for us. No no and no.
I hope we are extending his contract only to get some money for him in the future - everything else is pure madness

Not much I reckon. Last year of his deal and isn't renewing. Definitely someone who should be a long term option. I think the Elneny re-signing has ****ed us in terms of reshaping the midfield but with Tielemans coming in aswell, I think Chukwuemeka is a perfect opportunity aswell. Barca and Dortmund are sniffing around so I'm hopeful we can beat them to the post. Think guys like Azeez and Patino need to play more first team football so we should look to loan them ASAP. Chukwuemeka isn't much more experienced but has played more minutes and is a lot more ready to play - hence why he's itching to leave Villa.

It'd be nice to get a similar player who's older but I don't see any of those players currently available and I'm not keen on signing Bissouma while he has a sexual assault charge hanging over his head. Tielemans is a good player but not the profile I want at LCM in terms of power and dynamism. This is a gamble we have to make IMO, otherwise it'll be a big miss - unless we can dig out an older alternative. Cheick Doucoure might be a shout, same with Kephren Thuram (also still quite young at 21).

He’s never been accused of rape. There also seems to be no standing case for him to answer.
His case has always been different. He slapped a chick butt in a club. Not classy, but people compare him to Mendy

Of all the questionable things I have said I’m getting red carded for saying we don’t need another 18 year old.

Last summer, I was against the Lokonga signing especially as we had many holes in our first team, so I get where you’re coming about going for young players in this window. I think we need more experienced players that are ready to slot into our first team rather than depth or players we’re going to be loaning out. However I wouldn’t be against young players that are serious talents but I doubt our club has enough pull to convince them to join us since “we don’t have the capacity” to even negotiate with teams or identify them.

But 18 year old that is serious talent in midfield surely would have host of clubs after him? And unless you are absolute elite like cesc or Bellingham at 18. It’s the hardest position to master. I just don’t think an 18 year old who is backup at villa is gonna come here and add much. And again what about Patino who people say is big talent? There is only so many young talents you can have space for

Well he's got Barca after him so that suggests he has some talent. And the difference between him & Patino is that he has the frame already of a full grown player, Patino still looks like he's a couple of years of growing to do.

He's already featured more for Villa than Patino has done for us. It doesn't have to be exclusive, we can still buy established players and pick up 1 or 2 of the biggest talents.

Arsenal have got as much chance of being handed the title by Sp*rs as I have of being given the Crown Jewels. They are the last people we want winning the Championship. Now we mean to round off our season by beating Arsenal.

There is no way we were going to be beaten
