Not the signing I was hoping for. (Defoe springs to mind). Perhaps, hopefully, he will choose the mighty Wigan over the second city second club (ha ha). Cover for Big John do you think?

Sounds like you all have second club mentality always on the defensive. Anyways it was only a wind up, I personally hope you get Harewood so we can persue someone with better goalscoring ability

Maybe this is one of them 'reverse auction' thingies, where the lowest individual bid gets the prize. Good luck my friends

its a shame but you'll always have this kind of scenario. players are always going to opt for clubs with more resources, and who pay more than you.

Well if Villa are going to pay more than the 40k a week on offer at the JJB good luck to them, personally I think he is a good championship player and below average Prem player, but thats just me and it might be sour grapes
