    There's zero chance of that happening.

    They play everton and united in january. We want them to win those games. They play Newcastle soon afterwards, we want another win to get them relegated since our future depends upon it. It's in our interests. Their last game of the season is against city, we will be in desperate need of them winning that game too. Gomez should go there and take a couple more with him. It's not even debatable. We'd be stupid to turn down the opportunity.

    If it's obligation to buy at a good fee, we should probably look into it

    Yep, he can try with Philips, but it ain't gonna happen either.

    You can inagine that Gomez would possibly be keen on this. He has started, what, three games this season? I know he has been injured recently but even before that it was looking like he was behind Van Dijk, Matip and Konate. He is bound to want to play first team football, even if that means a move away.

    However, I am not sure how a loan move in January helps us, and although that sounds a bit harsh, that is ultimately what it comes down to.

    If he wasn’t English it’d be a lot more likely imo

    I believe Villa are pretty tight to breaching FFP, so a sizeable bid may be unlikely.


    Not saying it won't happen, but it's a consideration. [​IMG]

    Not sure if that wiggle room calculation is before they sold Grealish. If it is, they'll be fine for a couple of years.

    They aren't in Europe so it doesn't much matter does it?

    I think this was the Premier League's FFP rules. Broadly the same framework but PL rules allow for losses of £105m over 3 years (UEFA limit is, I think, €5m).
    From memory, Kieran Maguire (Price of Football) did this table for an article in the Daily Mail but neither he nor the article spelt out which test it was. I assumed it was the PL rule as Everton have lost a fuck-ton of money the last few years and there's no way they'd be anywhere near the UEFA target. Lucky for them they're nowhere near qualifying for Europe either.
    As I understand it, they should really have been called in for investigation and monitoring by the PL by now but I've not seen any mention of that happening, so there may be something in their numbers which isn't obvious from their public accounts that gets them out of it (e.g. losses from stadium investment and youth academy are added back). They're still in a mess financially as well as on the field.

    I think it's a good thing to be honest - build his value up and get him fit and raring again

    Basically comes down to whether the owners will allocate a genuine net spend in the next 2 windows. Have they got the hump over the Euro legue or what.

    If they stipulate it's sell to buy then Joe Gomez or Nat Phillips,The Ox,Nabby and one or two others could be in the frame.

    The article it was from was in November so I think it's up to date.

    He will be injured. Newcastle will probably buy him (hopefully for £40m)

    Anyone who loses in a fight with sterling should be culled.

    Would people be happy with Phillips as our 4-choice CB? We also have Van der Berg, Rhys and Koumetio in the youth pipeline.

    Yeah I'd be fine with him as 4th choice. He's arguably better than Gomez at the moment.
    Not that impressed with the rest of them.
