Who doesn’t like Mondays?  Here’s the latest from our glorious football club:

Jeffrey Schlupp – 22 year old Frenchman is strongly linked to Arsenal and Villa in a £5 million pound raid.  Schlupp impressed last term & we desperately need to sure up a torrid defence, with fullbacks being a priority.  I’m sorry, but I can only remember the lad for being destroyed by Ciaran Clark at Villa Park last season – video here.

Liverpool are unable to meet the release clause for Christian Benteke and are pursuing cheaper alternatives.  They are being forced to look at significantly older options in Europe & are presumably resigned to not being able to capture the Belgians signature.  Oh well.

And in the bonkers world of West Brom, they have made enquiries about Ciaran Clark.  After Tom Fox stopped laughing & asked Tony Pulis to take off that ridiculous hat, Villa rejected the Albion’s offer of £4 million pounds and a donkey jacket.  Clark responded appropriately.  And then we showed them a video of Villa beating Olbiyum twice in a week.

Further to the news that Villa are eyeing up Juventus centre half Angelo Ogbonna on Friday– we now face broader competition from La Liga side Real Betis who have been alerted to his availability.  A fee of £9.5 million is being touted for the out of favour Italian.
