    Tom Carroll

    Certainly somewhere on the left. From a very limited range of Youtube clips he looks more one-footed than Hourihane, if that's possible. But at least he seems a bit more interested in moving off the ball.

    Easah Suliman

    I thought he said something about not getting clearance for Easah to play? Perhaps I misheard... Is clearance necessary for players returning from a loan outside the country?

    Tammy Abraham

    Looks like the Adomah deal is off - because TA didn't sign?

    Ratings & Reactions: Villa v Brentford

    Generally good stuff but I thought Jack had an indifferent game (this from one of his biggest fans). Also, it seems to me that he and McGinn seem to want to take up the same space left of centre. They both seem to prefer playing there, and Jack doesn't look so threatening coming in from the right. This is something that needs sorting: do we have the coaches to do it?

    Jake Doyle-Hayes

    Jake did some good stuff but made quite a lot of mistakes under severe pressing by Yeovil. I think he's good enough technically to persist with - the mistakes will grow less with experience - but I just can't see Bruce risking him very often in the league. When we thought we would lose JG and had no inkling of McGinn coming in, it looked like Jake's big chance. But now? Loan out asap.

    Ratings & Reactions: Yeovil v Villa

    What on earth was up with Hourihane? Never seen such a shocking display. Perhaps he feels his place is under pressure from the new lad. If he puts in another performance like that he could lose it for a long time.

    One may smile and smile, and be a villain (The snake proved Shakespeare right)

    Jack Grealish

    Maybe Levy should call Timmy Sherwood to ask him what he's worth. 60m was his valuation as I recall.

    Transfer Window Summer 2018

    No, but the way things are going, if we don't sell Jack we will wind up with the mother of all FFP holes

    John McGinn

    So McGinn is the replacement for Jack? ...wish I could see the funny side of it.

    Jack Grealish

    The stats are interesting; however, perhaps we should take into account the fact that Grealish is a work in progress and is improving every game, as is our general teamwork around him. (now someone will produce stats that we did better when he first came into the team than towards the end of the season)

    Here's hoping you clean up, Rigo!

    Steve Bruce

    One thing is trying harder to impress and the other is having the skills and vision to do what Doyle-Hayes did. He impressed me, anyway.

    Steve Bruce In or Out?

    Back down to earth... let's at least hope for some exciting news on JG and money available for transfers

    Thierry Henry

    The lack of managerial experience is a worry, of course. But who knows, he may bring in some more experienced heads to assist him.
