    Bit inappropriate for people to be calling him out for lack of pace, “appalling” distribution, etc., at the time he was contributing to a really strong performance against France. Little bit parochial perhaps?

    Going Under ?

    Couldn’t Be quarterly if we had trouble paying one in May? I’m guessing monthly so stand by your beds on 22 June!

    Going Under ?

    The thread is called “going under ?” With a question mark. So it’s tracking speculation about our financial position. Quite hard to see that speculation has gone away, even though there are a few siren voices singing that there is no crisis.

    He’s been far more loyal to Villa than Villa have been to him. Just the sort of player we need to keep us strong for the difficult season to come. Pleased to see this.

    Is that where the tax money went?

    I think it may just be the Villa curse: we got the wrong American “billionaire” and now we may have got the wrong Chinese “billionaire”.

    Must say though, it makes for a great CV: ”Almost got Walsall into the Division 1 promotion places.” I would have thought the main problem with getting him to Villa would be the queue of other more prestigious clubs wanting to snap him up.

    OK, time for me to have my annual futile attempt to encourage correct usage of “reign” and “rein” on Villatalk. “Reign” is what the Queen does on account of her being Queen. “Rein” is what controls a horse and giving “free rein” means letting the horse run with little or no control. I’ve got a feeling this post intended to say “rein” (as in horse) rather than “reign” as in Queen.

    Right... I’m thinking you maybe gave a different definition of “reason” to many people!!!

    Can I suggest when you send out that list to potential buyers you take out the stuff in brackets.

    She’s suing for constructive dismissal....

    But technically you don’t sue a company for constructive dismissal, so the press reporting of this is sloppy. It’s pretty clear however that some legal action is happening - we just have to wait to see how far it goes.
