Musical Chairs

Transfer rumour frenzy time it would appear as we go into the last week of the window. Undeniably, we have done rather well so far given all the speculation about about cash-flow problems and the Boardroom reshuffles.  Ricardo Fuller, even at 33 in October, was better than I had expected. 

The surprising news this morning is that Villa (Aston) are reportedly showing interest in, er, Dale Stephens. Frankly, if they are willing to pay a Premier to Championship type fee, they are welcome to him, particularly if it means we could bring in target Nigel Reo-Coker. Neither of those moves would have seemed plausible to me two days ago, Stephens because he doesn't look anywhere near good enough and Reo-Coker because he would, presumably, be a big wage earner. Having said that, Fuller won't be coming here for a fraction of his Stoke wages.

All this begs the question, how? Form would suggest we are about to sell an asset to fund it all. Step forward Chris Solly.
