It's more the leaving it to the last minute which is nonsense. It is appalling business practice for the buyer to do this, as the seller knows they can keep the price high.

What is the point in the window being open for two months if nothing gets done until the last day? Just make it a day long, the opposite of a DFS sale.

Cleverly was good under Sherwood and think I he had stayed he would have got better.

MPB.

I like Westwood, for me I would like to see Sanchez go.

Adebayor looks like he could be set for West Ham.

I like the window, but would be better if it closed the day before the season and not 4 games in.

What is more stupid?
The transfer window and in-season deadline?
or:
The loan system whereby clubs like Chelsea can warehouse prospects or send them out on loan - over twenty at last count? Holy Moses. Edit: According to the Beeb Chelsea now have 33 players out on loan. What's the point?

You can't say this about many aspects of American sport but the concepts of players honouring contracts and limiting the number of players a club can have on its books are two that the FA would do well to look at.

In fairness loads of stuff gets done before the last day. But the sellers know the can hang on asking for a high price. Sometimes it gets done at a stupid fee and sometimes the move just doesn't happen

I thought Cleverley was just terrible. I've never seen a top level player with worse technique and 31 games, 3 goals no assists is wholly awful for an attacking midfielder. 4 games, no goals, no assists at Everton this year so keeping up the good form.

Westwood is a decent player but contributes next to nothing to Villa. Doesn't tackle, only passes sideways, destroys nothing, creates nothing.
I like the look of Gueye. Amavi looks to be an excellent signing. Not at all sure yet on Vertoute and Ayew.
Sanchez can go but mentioned Westwood as was thinking of strengthening what appears to be the starting 11. We'll see

Sounds like Adebayor to Villa is off.
The very definition of addition by inaction.
But who's going to score goals for Villa? Gerry Hitchens died 30 years ago . . . . . . .

Don't think Adebayor really wanted to come to Villa.

To late now, but we need another forward. Gestede will score a few.

As I said Austin would be good.

May have to rely on Sinclair.

Charlie Austin not being snapped up by a Prem club is a head-scratcher - sounds like he turned down Palace, but there's hardly a team that couldn't use his goals.
I like Warnock's description of Van Gaal behaving like a stamp-collector as far as players are concerned . . . . . . . .

Charlie Austin staying is brilliant news, but I have to admit I am struggling to understand why nobody snapped him up. £15m sounds like peanuts compared to the cash being splashed around on unknown teenagers. From what has been reported (or made up) by the press, no club has met the £15m asking price so it's never been a question of wages.

I expect QPR will look to sell him in the January transfer window, otherwise he will leave for nothing next summer. Austin will also be motivated to move to a Prem club in January to try and squeeze into the England squad for the Euros.

Fair play to Austin, none of this "I'm never playing for the chairman again" histrionics. At the start of the season I thought QPR would really struggle, but with Austin, Green and Philips all staying, I now think we have a good chance of bouncing straight back up.

Dont know how much truth is in it, but heard he wanted 80 grand a week.

May have put managers off, also think he has a history of a bad knee.

Still, would have been happy if Villa signed him.

Maybe more to the chronic knee issue that was mentioned by someone than anyone thought? Probably asking for too much though as was said earlier.

I don't think the knee is that much of an issue, he played pretty much every minute of every game last season. Possibly he was asking for too much, but I think it's more likely that other clubs didn't feel like sinking £15m in transfer fees for a player in the last year of his contract.

Thoughts on the passengers taking their own luggage whilst being evacuated from aircraft?

I've never had to get off in such urgency so I can't say how I'd react, but such fannying about could clearly cost lives so I think they're totally out of order.

Radcliffe has an extremely annoying voice in interviews, almost sounds persecuted and negative before she's asked a question, bit like Heather Watson.

I do. I can 100% tell you if I had my little girl in my arms and was trying to get off this burning plane and the person in front of me starting trying to retrieve their laptop bag or whatever, I wouldn't hesitate for a single second to shove them back in their seat, and i'd possibly be waiting for them when they got off the plane too!

Mac, how do you know? Personally I've been in a couple of very dangerous situations where I didn't behave like a moron, not a burning plane, granted, but potentially deadly if I hadn't reacted accordingly.

I'm pretty certain I would follow the rules laid out pre-flight by every airline in this scenario, and I'd expect every other passenger to do so too.

I think there is a lot of over-reaction and fake outrage around this. Obviously the flames weren't dancing around them, no-one was even injured. The pictures of the burning aircraft were taken well after everyone evacuated, so it looks a lot worse than what the passengers experienced. I don't see the big deal in grabbing some personal possessions on your way out.

Given that everyone ought to know that fuel tanks are located all throughout the wings and lower fuselage, and that fuel lines connect them to the burning engine I'd think it was logical to want to get off as soon as possible.

If you are driving along and smoke starts piling out of your car engine, you don't keep going because it's not on fire yet, you stop and get the hell out. Why wouldn't you on a plane?

Nobody has fake outrage here, we are simply pointing out how retarded some of these passengers are (one with a bag so big it should have been in the hold) in holding up passengers by going into the overhead luggage.

Don't mind a small bag that was under the seat as presumably you had to wait to get out into the aisle, or even an ipad if you're using it at the time, but some of the bags simply had to be holding people up, not to mention how they might harm someone in front on the slide.

But MPB you were not on board either and claim to know with 100% certainty that you wouldn't pick up luggage and that you "would possibly be waiting" for anyone who did collect belongings on the way out.

I missed the part where the plane blew up, or where fire spread to other parts of the plane??. Modern airliners are designed to isolate fires and prevent them spreading.

I'm not saying wait til you're on fire, but the fact that no-one was even treated for any injury or smoke inhalation would suggest it wasn't that urgent of a situation. I'm sure they were queuing to slide down the escape chute anyway.

Referred outrage.

14 people were taken to hospital with minor injuries.

Are you really saying you would be happy to wait behind somone getting their wheely case down from the overhead storage whilst the engine was smoking away.

I'm sure you'd be sitting in your seat waiting for everyone to exit, content that the luck of the oirish would save you and happy to determine that it was a fault and not an act of sabotage which could circumnavigate plane design.

You'd be keen to get off. It's not a case of how long it took them, it's a case of the sheer stupidity of people gathering their belongings.

They were. 14 people taken to hospital with minor injuries.

Of course they knew the plane wasn't going to blow up......

In fairness Inco, you've made a good point in that if standing in a queue anyway I would have no problem with someone reaching up and grabbing some stuff. Still a suitcase seems a bit over the top but a bag or something, if of no consequence to progress re getting out, then fair enough.

If holding people up from getting off the plane though, I don't see how anyone could feel that's not out of order.

Maybe we should give them the benefit of the doubt

Super, if you were allowed to bring your jar of sheep entrails through customs I'm sure you would be scrambling for those whilst evacuating.

I really think there are more important things to be getting fussed about, such as the refugee crisis. Would any of you folks house refugees? I'm considering it myself, although Ireland is only taking a pitiful 1,800.

Inco

The left wing a fuselage were heavily damaged in the fire. You are correct the modern planes should isolate fires but on this occasion the planes fire suppression system failed. This system should pump halon into the engine which is on fire, and block the combustion process.

Are you really considering housing someone Inco?
I'm not sure how I feel about this idea, Yvette Cooper and co coming out and saying she could take 3 etc. it's a very kind thing to offer to do.
Not for a second do I think these people shouldn't be helped, I do. But there are plenty of homeless kids in this country. Plenty of starving kids in Africa. How come no one's been clamouring to house them?

Why would a refugee want to move to Ireland?

As for housing them, I can't stand if a friend stays for more than a night.

Mac, surely you'll be making room in your bedsit for a Syrian?
