Superb signing. I think I put this in a 'Players you'd like us to sign' thread last season. Captain at Bournemouth and Villa - he's exactly what we need.

Anyone mentioning strikers in this thread can take their negativity elsewhere.

Sending every team in the prem the video of Weds 3rd goal should do the trick

I don't think now is the time to be fussy. We have to welcome any new signing within reason.

Unless it is Jordon Mutch of course.

Lets hope Stam don't play him on the wing.

I think the signing of Elphick will be a Boon for us.

A bit surprised that he hasn't featured much for Villa.
A steady Eddie old-fashioned no-nonsense centre-back and was captain of Bournemouth for some time.
Seems ideal for a relegation fight-he's probably a mate of Yann's which has led to the deal.
I wonder if he has the same agent as Yann and Grabban and also wonder if Richards is destined for Bournemouth-there have been murmurings for a while about that happening and Eddie Howe has bought 3 players in recent times from lower division (Leeds, Sheff Utd and Blackburn all for in excess of £1 million) that are still very young but had shown potential.

Back to Elphick-pleased about this one as he is a leader, something that our defence needs with McShane no longer up to it and Moore badly in need of help.

You have to be of a certain age to appreciate that one.

Indeed, I'm just glad there is someone of a certain age who does appreciate it. I'm wasted on here.

Don't say that Norfolk, you are a boon to the site.
Incidentally, while you are on, do you happen to know why The Duke of Norfolk's main residence is in Sussex and not Norfolk?

I didn't like the joke but beggars can't be Shulzers.

Possibly the same reason the Duke of Devonshire's gaff is in Derbyshire?

Should probably make a Private bid for https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christian_Schulz too.

Just hoping he,s not being brought in to fill the space currently occupied by Liam Moore.

I would guess because the Duke of Norfolk is also the Earl of Arundel (a higher title) and Arundel is in Sussex I think. I'm not sure that the Duke of Norfolk has any real connection with Norfolk the county. Hundreds of years ago when the gongs were dished out whoever it was probably just got it on the lucky dip principle.

With Elphick in the team it might give us to a chance to change the formation slightly. Possibly play 5 at the back with Three up, Two Down?
