We have been heavily linked with this guy in the past couple of years and I'm sure fees proposed to get him were in the tens of millions. He looks a good player, pacy, direct, can play right wing or striker, bit like Landon Donovan.
Now this guy had a move to Nice, and for some reason his contract is terminated. I'm not sure why, I'm sure many posters know the situation more than I do.
Basically he's free and now he's on trial with Aston Villa. Why aren't we in there?! We've been crying out for a bit of pace in the team, so seeing he's free, makes a lot of sense to get him.
It may materialise with us giving him a trial. Would be interesting to see what happens.

Drenthe and Coleman are not going to win many headers from a Stoke corner... Imagine if we left those two speedsters on the half way line for their corners...

If we are comfortably mid-table, I reckon it will be a brinkmanship winter and hoping against hope that we have no injuries.

If someone would've come in with £20mill for Rodwell and /or Fellani or £15 mill for Jags, or for that matter anyone else on the playing staff, they'd be playing somewhere else;emailgate confirmed it, but to be honest we didn't realy need the smokin' gun to understand the predicament we're in.

Too true and where we're heading unless current ownership drop the selling price.
