  1. 6 days, 9 points and sitting 6th after a completely one-sided game against a team 4 places above us in 5th and with the league's best defence. I was so confident about this game I invited my wife to watch it with me. We are playing beautiful football and that's with Tammy struggling a bit. I love watching Villa right now!
  2. I thought he looked lively when he came on, seemed like a really well timed sub to me.

    It works fine for me, I have a computer plugged into a 55" TV and the resolution is still pretty good with no freezes. When I watch at the pub, the internet can cause a few freezes.
  4. I just flipped the month on this year's Villa calendar and see that March is Chester. This follows Bolasie for January and Tuanzebe for February. Looking ahead I see Hutton is April so I'm really concerned for Grealish in May. Is there any chance that a player will be fit and/or at the club for the month they represent in 2019?
  5. Under contract, in the prime of his career and playing regularly in the Championship, we'll get some cash for him at the end of the season at the very least. Much better than letting old, high-paid midfielders leave for free.
  6. All signings are a risk, at least he has time on his side. I'm not necessarily suggesting we sign him, just that he seems the best value out of the Brentford players suggested and would address an immediate need.
  7. To me it seems we need to stop paying big fees for older players so Rico Henry is the only player I would target from Brentford. They obviously don't need to sell so he won't be cheap which is probably why there is a lack of news. Sounds like Fuchs is the fallback position. The CDM we need will come from somewhere else. Just my read on the lack of movement in the market. Only 2 more games until the window closes...
  8. I like the idea of a 3-5-2, our defence is awful, only 3 other teams have shipped more goals in the Championship. I realise Smith likes to attack but a solid foundation for attacking is needed. Plus it looks like our new left back isn't arriving anytime soon.
  9. No chance we will offer him a one year contract? Seems a shame to just let him go for nowt.
  10. I wouldn't want an option to buy Fuchs, he's 32. He'd be a stop gap measure until the end of the season. My guess is we are pursuing younger options right now and Fuchs will only come in nearer the end of the window... or if Taylor gets crocked again in the next couple of weeks. Just a guess mind, he'll probably be announced on Monday for all I know.

    Jed Steer

    Will Steer be recalled?

    He needs to figure out how to deal with crosses/corners and command his box. If our keeper doesn't do that then he really isn't much use. He could possibly figure that out on loan somewhere. His distribution is good and all the other aspects of his game are mostly fine. I think he makes the defence look worse than they are.
  13. Good news and the right decision. It's like a new signing!
  14. How tall is he, can he head it?
  15. How many matches until the window opens and we can get a new goalkeeper and centre back? Can't come soon enough for me.
  16. I think the game underlined how much we need a new striker.

    The season pass was a complete waste of money last year, I'm glad there are no automatic renewals.
  18. I sometimes wonder why teams bother (especially Cardiff) kick him all over the pitch, but then on days like today you see what potential is there and why they worry about him. I just hope Villa keep up with his trajectory.

    Scott Hogan

    Do we have any idea when he'll be available for selection, if only as an impact sub?
  20. Isn't it likely that the transfer will go through after we play them? No point in opening yourself up to any potential criticism by giving them a player eager to please - however unlikely he does something effective.
