Transfer window crystal ball: When and how much?

Recommended Posts

While we wait for any transfer action we might as well exploit the fact that nothing have really materialized yet, and play a good, old fashioned game of how much and when.

So just for fun, look into your crystal ball and tell us:

1. At what date do we sign our first player this summer? No youth players or kids, only players meant for the main squad counts.

2. How many players have signed for Villa within Oct.5? Again, no youth players or kids, only players meant for the main squad counts. Number of outgoing players are irrelevant, but if you think many players will leave you might up your guessed number accordingly.

3 When the transfer window slams shut Monday, Oct. 5, what is Villa's gross expenditure on incoming players? If a price isn't public knowledge we just go with what's probable. Also, we go with the transfer price at the time, so no add-ons or contractual fanciness.
 

The competition goes on as long as it's reasonable, i.e. until it's clear that an inbound transfer is going to happen and isn't far away. And, be gentlemen and -ladies, don't "guess dates" after it's been reasonably certain what the date will be.

Winners get a plethora of bragging rights, I guess.

A football cliche book! Let me get in the race for it, so that I can prepare a bid and slap it in.

Got to be honest, I didn't realise just how many cliches commentators and players came out with til I read this.

Hilarious stuff!
