    Good deal. EPL gets more difficult as there are no minnows in football anymore. Congrats to all Villains out there.

    Hope this doesn’t affect Aribo’s planned move to the club?

    • I prefer Aribo stays in Scotland and continue to improve his game than go to EPL where he’ll struggle. Must he follow a coach everywhere?

        And who told you he will struggle at EPL?? What a myopic mindset!
