Villa get Barkley on loan <cry> Would have been a great signing for us.

They're looking like they've got a good squad now. Grealish, Traore, McGinn, Luiz, Barkley, Targett, Cash, Mings, Martinez etc. They'll stay up no problem at all.

Should do, still need Watkins to stick the ball in the net though (or that Wesley). Re Barkley, likely a good signing but could quite easily be a Danny Rose. On the one hand he's playing for his England squad place, on the other he's dined at the top level now. Does he still have the hunger for a bottom half of the table scrap? Plus he is injury prone. I prefer loan signings who are young and on the up rather than once big names who have fallen out of favour.

One thing I don't doubt, though, is that Jack Grealish is f*cking class.

Barkley is 27 and still has promise. I'm just not sure he's that good

I think Barkley looked decent for Chelsea last season, seemed to get good game time after lockdown. But now that Lampard has signed every attacker in Europe his chances at Chelsea are limited.

Mason Mount will be lucky to get games with Pulisic, Havertz, Ziyech and potentially Werner dropping deep, Barkley had no chance of playing.

Going to Chelsea was a bad move for Barkley, but still it's a decent signing for Villa. They looked good against Fulham and might surprise a few people this season.

Yeah I think they'll be around mid-table, unfortunately.

Ademola Lookman Has joined Fulham on loan. He looked good on loan in the Bundesliga a couple of seasons ago but vanished after that.

You've got to give Liverpool credit, the money they get for their players is insane!

£25m for Solanke, £15m for Ibe, £23m for Brewster, £13 for Hoever; £76m for 4 players alone who never / rarely played for them. Then add on the Coutinho and Suarez money etc.

Unlike some of their peers. Liverpool definitely knows how to showcase their young players, even if they have no intention of them breaking into the first team. Seem to send them on the right loans, get results in pre-season, etc.

Chelsea have turned down a £70m offer from Bayern for Hudson-Odoi, are they mad?!

Loan bid with a 70m option, apparently

Maybe, but then he'll just be bought by another English side in 2 years where he becomes a star. I think they're more patient before selling potential young stars after the mistakes of Salah, KDB, etc.

Would have been a decent signing for us to give us more depth & a different dimension upfront.. but for that price we were never going to get him. Would anyone take Origin/Shaquiri from Liverpol & Ruben-loftus cheek from Chelsea.. on loan ? They'll be solid signings.. <ok> <gent>

Yep Loftus-Cheek 100%.

Shaqiri is on his way to an Italian club. Not sure about Origi.

Hudson-Odoi is getting games for Chelsea and showing his potential, can't see them letting him go.
