  1. With the squad we currently have, we just need 2 very astute loans and 3/4 players on top of that to challenge at the top of the championship. Look at Ben White at Leeds, Tammy and Axel last year, Pereira at the Baggies. Loan signings are key, and a great way to balance the books. We can’t afford to dismiss them again next season. Literally.
  2. Whilst I agree with the sentiment, I can’t help but feel a fullback needs pace more than ever these days. He could be the best footballer in the world but without pace, he’s going to be shown up, especially at Premier League level. I remember him at home to Norwich, and Max Aaron’s went round him time and time again. I like Targett, I just think he’s probably a championship standard full back because he’s so slow.
  3. As bad as he is, and he is terrible, he looks more likely to score than any of our strikers. You kind of have to start him for that reason alone. (Should be sold regardless at the end of the season)
  4. Arsenal are one of those teams we all think are rubbish because they don’t have a team of superstars anymore and we hear their fans moaning about how poor they are now. In reality, they’re still a very good side and far better than us. For us to beat them, we’d need to play brilliantly and they’d need to have somewhat of an off day. No matter which way you look at it. We’ve got 3 games left against 3 teams that are better than us so we’ll need to defy the odds in each to survive.
  5. And yet everyone would love him if he was at their club. Like you say, he’s just very hateable. He’s not going to be with us next season anyway.
  6. I’m really not sure on him or our striker situation. Let say we do go down. I can’t get rid of this nagging feeling that we’ll need a new striker despite having quite a few at the club. I just don’t like the idea of a Samatta, Wesley, Davis strike force. They all have their attributes but I’d still rather have Dwight Gayle and that annoys me.
  7. He’ll probably be one of the best left backs in the championship.
  8. He’ll be starting for us at CB in the championship but if we do pull off a miracle and survive, we’d need better than him to partner Mings I’m afraid.
  9. We aren’t allowed to change it until they score remember.
  10. Honestly, how far off is he from this level. It’s mind blowing. I don’t even think he is championship standard.
  11. All out attack. Play Davis and Vassilev up top. Grealish and McGinn in behind. Targett and Elmo as wing backs. Luiz sitting. **** defending. Let’s go for the 5-0 win. Dont bother with Samatta, Trezeguet, El Ghazi, Nakamba or Engels. 42m of garbage.
  12. Totally agreed. They shouldn’t have better players, but they do. That’s our fault.
  13. I love the way so many people compare us to Sheffield United and how they’ve performed this season as a way to highlight how we’re underachieving and should be doing so much better Sheffield United are a better team than us. They have better players. Just because they’re not fancy foreign signings or international superstars, doesn’t mean they aren’t better players. They were better than us last season and they’re better than us this season. We finished 5th, and we spent 140m only to make us a weaker team. We have no right to be anywhere near them in the league given the players we’ve signed. We fully deserve to get relegated because we’re a very poor team with no identity and no defining qualities.
  14. It wasn’t necessarily a Fulham as we didn’t have much of a squad and had to sign players. That doesn’t mean whatever we did was better than ‘doing a Fulham’ though. It was probably worse. Any club that thinks Trezeguet is good enough for this division thoroughly deserves to be relegated.
  15. When we’re mathematically down, I hope he drops El Ghazi and Trezeguet from the squad and they never wear a Villa shirt again.
  16. Remember when we didn’t sign Benrahma.
  17. A draw for Watford is a good result for us. I’d have taken that at the start of the day.
  18. This is where I’m at. If they sacked Dean, meh. Don’t really care. He’s a good bloke but he’s cost us points at times this season with his subs. The real issue is with the squad though. Last summer was an unmitigated disaster. That’s on Purslow and Suso.
  19. We start every match with at least 7 players that aren’t good enough at this level. Thats on him. I’d rather see him go than Smith.
