Emmanuel Riviere completed his medical.

Believable7 Unbelievable9

Reading some of julien Lauren's comments and he's not all that impressed by Riviere.

Agree3 Disagree4

I think Lauren might be right! Look at the 'best of mmanuel Rivierre' on youtube, he looks average at best and youtube can make anyone look worldclass!

Agree1 Disagree1

But in Graham Carr we trust.

Agree1 Disagree0

Give him a chance.

Agree1 Disagree2

Exactly right JT, considering our owner we should be grateful we are signing anyone. Sad but true.

Agree1 Disagree1

Give this lad a break lads. How many goals did demba score for us when he was top scorer. This lad been playing along side two of the best players in the world at minute. His record not that bad, playing second fiddle or maybe third as you see it. Would you of taken sturrage 2 years ago before he hit the heights at Liverpool. Sorry for spelling been on the peeve
Toon though and though

Some bloke on Talksport said it was between us and the great unwashed for the signature of Rodwell, surely given the choice he would choose us? It would be a great signing if he can stay fit.
If we are shopping in Manchester why are we not trying to get Richards to shore up the back and offer cover at right back especially if Mbwia is going back to France?

Agreed about richards but do we really need rodwell?

Players we have who can play in his position:

Agree3 Disagree7

Sissoko has to play in the middle with Tiote so am not sure about Rodwell.

Agree1 Disagree1

Competition for places is good and besides apart from Colback they are all right footers and I daresay Rodwell fit and firing is better than all of them.

A lot more rumours starting to circulate that we are interested in Christian Benteke, and that we are in negotiations for Alexandre Lacazette.

Meanwhile the club hope to unveil Daryl Janmaat and Emmanuel Riviere together which will give the green light for debuchy to arsenal.

Believable3 Unbelievable8

I can't see Villa letting Benteke go but would like to see him here.

Agree4 Disagree0

Well as we have paid for Janmaat and Rivier form the sale of Debuchy meaning we have only spent money on Cabella and that is £12m max but could have only been £8m, then surely we could sign both Benteke and Lcazette? Doubt it tough, I can't see Riviere coming to sit on the bench.

Agree1 Disagree5

Cabaye money went on de jong and Cabella. No chance we'd pay 20m for benteke. we couldn't even getDarren Bent a year ago

Agree2 Disagree1

Des, yes sorry I forgot about SDJ.

But that does mean we still have between £50 and £75m left.

Agree2 Disagree2

Benteke would be a great signing if he we was fit! He ruptured his Achilles in April! 6-8 months out, he wouldn't be fit until Christmas! Can't see us spending big money on a player that can't play!!
