There’s not really much to report, as what’s out there is pretty meaningless and mostly going over the transfer window, which erm, has finished.
To be fair, I’ve quite liked the Birmingham Mail’s timeline thing, but you have to feel it’s already run out of steam, as it becomes difficult to keep it up when there’s not much happening.
I know that feeling quite well, as it goes.
But I digress.
Jedinak missed training for the Roos and while they’re trying to play it down in saying it’s just a knock, I suspect he won’t make the next game. Not that I care who they’re playing. I’m just saying.
Grealish also got a knock and didn’t play in the U-21’s latest victory. I think.
I can’t even be bothered to look properly, to be honest, as I only care about how they’re doing for the Villa.
And this WC qualifying just detracts from what we need, which is our players at their best for us, simple as.
There is one bit of news that’s out there though.
We apparently tried to get Jordan Rhodes on loan from Middlesboro.
I can’t say I’m mad keen on him, but he has got a 1 in 3 strike rate for them, which, while not great, holds up well against any Villa striker of late. Particularly Gabby.
The club have denied this, but Xia did say we were in for one or two on the last day and I suspect that if we’d have got Gabby temporarily off the books, this deal might have happened.
But at the end of the day, it didn’t happen, so it’s another non-story.
Roll on the Forest game, I say.
