    Agree and disagree. Lose both a disaster – depends if we get decent money and Randy reinvests. We’re not a club at the moment who can keep top class players like Benteke, but get a number of players who strengthen us then its worthwhile. As i say, if the money is reinvested, personally i’d rather have 5/6 £7-10m players for 2 bigger value players, but that’s partly because of where we are as a club at present.

    Delph clause if true has two ways of looking at it. Negatively is obvious, but positively its £10m more than we all thought we would get 6 months ago. Go back 6 months and if prior to him signing the deal you could have N’Zonzi £6m or so and Begovic £8m (please only examples) or so for Delph and Weimann you’d have snapped their hands off based on the fact Delph was going for nothing. If that was the clause to get £10m, then i’d rather it be in there quite frankly. Now he has a contract and been playing well, of course it looks and is cheap as chips as a deal for any new suitor. Can i blame him? not really, that’s football sadly and probably only recoups his wages all the time he was injured.

    im just at the point where under lerner every transfer window feels the same linked to many players and then go buy second rate lower league dross or injury plagued free transfers.
    IF delph did sign a new deal with a release clause he has done villa a favour instead of jumping ship on a bosman. im still praying for a buyout as i dont think there will be any change in our transfer policy under lerner . i honestly cant blame the like of delph and benteke wanting to leave as they must think the same as the average fan. where are the quality signing.

    It’s going to be a Red Indian takeaway-the Seminole Tribe of Florida who own the Hard Rock Cafe chain are snapping up AVFC. The new goalkeeper is either going to be Michelle Heaton’s brother-Tom Heaton or Donna Duke’s brother-Matt Duke.

      They’re actually frighteningly rich aren’t they. That would rock! Isn’t Daisy Duke enormously fat now?

    Lol, that’s a strange shout.
    Still, it’s as good as anyone else’s guess, so why not? 🙂

    I am not ITK and I know nothing. I just want it to be resolved one way or the other.

    If it is true about a relatively cheap buy-out clause, there’s still a serious decision Delph needs to make
    Be careful Mr Delph, think about it. The number of players who have gone to Man City with assurances they would be in a Champions League side only to languish on the bench for months and months. You’ve basically got a semi-regular place in the England side based on your constant run in the Villa side (and obviously your performances), there must be a great risk of going to Man C, would jepardise that, just prior to a Euro championships next year, to go from playing every week, to coming on as a sub now and again, and playing in Carling cup matches.
    I’d speak to the likes of Sinclair, ask him if you should go, ask Mr Richards, the grass is not always greener
