  2. OK so the Grealish left or centre argument is a simple one really. In a team not seeing a lot of possession with no threat out wide, Jack has to play left. However if the team has quality on the wings without Jack playing left, and if that team gets a lot of possession you want Jack in the middle. If you are ambitious the you sign 2 quality widemen and move Jack to the centre. If you lack ambition you keep Jack left and pray no one decides to offer close to the asking price, because lets be serious here; Jack will not want to be here if we fail to show ambition and even more so if h

  4. Does anyone else wish @Villain4Life was part of our recruitment team? Pretty sure Habib Diallo has been linked with the spuds recently. He's someone who has been mentioned by @Villain4Life on numerous occasions. Edit - Patson Daka, Noah Okafor, Baptise Santamaria are the 3 we should prioritise in this window. They would add so much to our defensive and attacking output.

  6. To be honest with you, it's really hot and I'm not in the mood, but thank you for answering this post and we'll take it from here. It seems like an entirely reasonable shorthand to me to say 'I was stopped by police' instead of 'the car I was in was stopped by police'. I don't know what you think this gotcha proves, but it really doesn't prove anything at all. It is not important to her point in any way whether she was driving the car, or somebody else was, since the driver was black and she is arguing it is an part of a pattern of institutional racism around stopping black drivers.

  8. The obsession about moving Grealish into central midfield is just nuts. He plays out of his skin at the left wing and is accepted to be one of the very best attacking players in the league. Is essentially the talk of the league for 6 months straight. Is linked to a CL club for months due to his performances. Gets valued at £ 80 million due to it. Scores and produces chances and assist at a European top level. Recieves players player of the season award. Recieves fan's PotS award. Pretty much keeps us up by himself by his attacking displays. Yet people wanna move him into another role.

  10. Two things I can say with certainty.... 1. Villamole is an absolute, complete and utter fraud. Fact. 2. Don't believe what you read in the press about Leicester, Leeds etc - I think we will get Watkins and soon. As I said earlier in the thread patience.

  11. Why's this topic halfway down the page when the country is in a catastrophic recession caused by the pathetic performance of the "your money is safe with us" Tories? Incompetent shite, still riding high on a tidal wave of xenophobia, nationalism and, ironically, Russian interference.

  12. I think that's right When I first saw the short snippet of Butler , i did think she was being a bit of a cockwomble ... but if you take the trouble to follow up on her complaints and look at the proven statistics of profiling in places like Hackney , her repeated highlighting of these issues with the Met , her exasperation about the whole thing becomes more understandable .... it strikes me that the people abusing her on social media , aren't interested in a bigger picture though

  14. I can't understand the hatred he gets on here. I think he has struggled this season due to a lack of movement around him and a lack of confidence. But this man broke his fast to send us to the premier league for that he will always have my thanks.

  16. True! I'd go Bale (30mill & 400k a week wages), Thiago (30mill & 200k a week wages), Ramsey (10mill & 400k a week wages), Ozil (10mill and 350K a week wages). Total Spend: 80mill which leaves us 20mill spare to pay Brentford to take Hogan, Jota and Lansbury off our hands.

  19. £10 says the answer on Henry is something along the lines of him being good, but they've already signed a replacement that should develop to be a better player and no way would they sell for £5m, expect it to be £10m plus.

  20. This whole idea of bringing Jack back to the midfield glosses over the main reason he ended up in the front 3 to begin with. McGinn. McGinn is also an #8 who likes to get in around around the box. That was fine in the Championship. We dominated possession versus most teams. That allowed us to get away playing hourihane as our DM some games. We tried that midfield 3 of Connor, Jack and John one time in the Prem. First game of the season at Spurs. Spurs played through us like we weren't there. We then tried Jack and John together a couple more games with a dedicated DM. That didn'

  21. Firstly Jack in the centre controls and orchestrates the games, his value as a central midfielder is about co trolling the game and breaking teams down. It's not something goals and assist can show. Secondly Jack's stint in central midfield was at a time where the tactics simply didn't compliment the way he plays in that position. It was also at a time he and most of the time weren't fully match fit. The left wing position was best if we need him to carry the attack thats where he can do it best. Thirdly we don't want him carrying the attack as that means the rest of the attack are

  22. A central midfield three of Grealish, Luiz and McGinn would be naive to the extreme, if Smith started next season with those three as our midfield I think it would show that he's learned nothing and I'd worry for him how long he'd last in the job.

  26. Call the position what you like, it's the attributes of the player that is important. We need another midfielder who is and upgrade on Hourihane and Nakamba who are imo fine as squad options. And we need to ship out Lansbury

  29. You’re not the only one. I assume it’s been bumped for one of three reasons; he’s leaving, he’s signed a new contract, or he’s been snapped drinking absinthe from a prostitute’s knickers.

  30. Telling John to be more defensive is the reason you play him. His best attributes are his ball winning and his ability to drive the ball forward from deep. You lose both of those things when he plays further forward and he is mostly ineffective. He can still score goals playing deeper with late runs into the box for pull backs. But if playing mcginn means playing him as a cam I would rather not play him. Hourihane is better as a cam than mcginn and I don't understand why mcginn was playing further forward than him since restart.

  31. I did on Sunday. Jack is one of the best attacking young players in Europe in terms of shots/chances created. 1st in Premier League and 3rd in Europe combined. He is 1st from just passes from open play. £80m is not enough for him! Buendia is an elite level creative player and we should be all over this. Allan Saint-Maximin would be quality if Ashley would sell. Josip Brekalo and Samuel Chukwuze would be quality additions. Deulofeu as a cheaper option.

  32. Just because Watkins may be our first signing it doesn’t meant he’s going to be our best signing. Again, patience.

  33. That's unfair for the hardcore Villa fans....maybe the fair weather fans it does. For me I've said I want to buy him but not on his own, if he was to be our main striker then I'm not convinced his impact this season is going to be enough for us. I think longer term he could be good but throwing all our striker eggs into one basket and starting the season with Wes, Watkins, Samatta and Davis as our strikeforce options is weak. I believe that Wes could come good and Watkins looks to have talent but it's a huge risk on two maybe's.

  35. I know I’ve mentioned this before but if Celtic want £30m for Edouard then I think we should pay that. It would break their record transfer fee received a few time’s over I believe, and it would be a record for us too.
