    Neil Taylor

    Think I've got the names you're talking about right?? He also played Nigel Reo-Coker, who was pretty highly rated when we signed him, and Craig Gardner at right back for most of their Villa careers too. He'd never get away with that these days as the full back role has changed so much in the last ten years, so you can't just stick a centre back in there to keep it tight anymore. He was still refusing to play Matt Doherty (who's one of the PL's stand-out right backs at the moment) when he got sacked from the ROI job a few weeks back. O'Neill goes on the basis of select 11 big characters, inflate their egos, send them out on the pitch and let them sort themselves out. It did work well for us to an extent to be fair.

    Jack Grealish

    What about : ?

    Tammy Abraham

    I think Keinan would be good at the dropping deep and holding it up role and bringing the midfielders into play, but he'd be nowhere near as good as Tammy as a fox in the box. That said Keinan has only ever played Bruceball - maybe under Dean Smith he'd improve again.

    Steve Bruce

    Stuart Pearce insisted on not having any such clauses in his contract when he took over at Notts Forest as he didn't think his potential failure should be rewarded. (Was sacked 6 months later).

    New Manager Speculation

    I wonder does AVB have any affiliation to Jorge Mendes?

    New Manager Speculation

    Not to be a pedant but one if not two of the managers you've noted there do not consider themselves to be British.

    Steve Bruce

    I would agree with this if it were still Wyness and Xia in charge but precedent has shown new owners to have far less patience. Bruce has no one to defend him at board level like Wyness might've done as he hired him. I reckon Purslow has his list drawn up already and is flat out on the phone at the moment.

    By all accounts they were going to sack him after no defeats, when they arrived so I'm happy they'll have no hesitations pulling the trigger after a pretty poor start.

    Only 9635 signatures needed until parliament gets to debate Jedinak at CB and Tuanzebe at RB. Good news?

    Tammy Abraham

    Bordeaux are a bit of basket case at the moment by all accounts - the management have sold their best players this summer and they haven't signed any replacements. I don't think they actually have a manager as Henry turned them down this week. I would be coming to us all day long over them.

    Harold Moukoudi

    Straight out of the Paddy Riley transfer handbook... ?

    Transfer Window Summer 2018

    O'Neill did all of his transfers under the radar - nobody knew much about what was going on until it was all but done

    Transfer Window Summer 2018

    Le Havre seem to have a good academy - Payet, Mahrez, Pogba, Benjamin Mendy, and Lassana Diarra have all come through there. And Charles N'Zogbia.

    Transfer Window Summer 2018

    We've made a bid for Harold Moukoudi from LeHavre apparently - £1m loan fee with £7m option to sign. French Football Weekly have just retweeted that and are pretty reliable.

    Ourselves and Derby are in for Odegaard apparently.
