    I mentioned James Collins a while back. Does he have a club yet? I know he's not very mobile but he'd still do the job for us IMO.

    I don't buy this we got lucky business. Yes we were disjointed and plucky Wigan were on track for a win and then a draw until a late moment of quality got us home. Both teams got a goal from a defensive error but over the entirety of the game we had 17 shots to their 10. With a striker in halfway decent form it would have been a comfortable win. In my view of course.

    Ratings & Reactions: Villa v Wigan

    Bruce took a massive risk changing 6 players from a winning team and including 3 new signings, several players playing out of position and a hopelessly out of form striker. We looked disjointed and it was easy to see why. Fortunately for all of us the dice rolled our way in the end. BUT, despite the luck of having an own goal and a last gasp winner, we were the better team and deserved to win IMO. To be honest Kodjia could have had 2 or 3 with the opportunities he had. He is struggling with confidence and you can tell by his body language, but at least he is working hard from what I can see. Positives: McGinn, McGinn & McGinn. Oh, and McGinn. Makes a brilliant foil for Grealish. Where Jack wants to dribble past and jink the ball through defenders, McGinn is looking for opportunities 20-30 metres further up and drifting nice little balls into the box. Hourihane will have to work his arse off for minutes on the pitch which is good for us IMO. Hepburn Murphy looked a threat when he came on. I hope he keeps getting minutes into him. Negatives: Jedi - looked like he was wearing concrete boots out there. Jedi's wobbles make Chester nervous and he starts kicking the ball out instead of playing it through. Nyland needs some time to get up to speed and his kicking was poor. Hopefully this will be a temporary situation. Albert was very quiet and looked uninterested again. As usual Jack had the crap kicked out of him and it worries me that teams will now use this as a first resort knowing we lack another dimension to our play. Hopefully McGinn's emergence will address that.

    To be fair, I don't think your post had anything to do with it...

    Is this the Wigan rugby team by any chance?

    That goal had shades of two seasons ago

    John McGinn

    His hair is too neat. Do not want.

    And Celtic looking like signing Daniel Arzani on loan too so that's a fair bit of competition for places.

    Anyone think re-signing James Collins on a free might be decent business? I know he's a bit on the slow side but would be a decent option off the bench - at least better at CB than Jedinak.

    Jack Grealish

    If Spurs leave it til deadline day I hope we tell them to do one. We need time to find a new creative player to replace him because, as much as I love him, I don't think we could survive going back to having Alan Hutton as our main attacking outlet.

    Jonathan Kodjia

    Kodjia just has the yips. He is the same frustrating, selfish player he has always been but he's just not connecting with his chances. Once he buries one he will start to kick on.

    Alan Hutton has collected many yellow cards over the years, but surely that was his first ever for excessive goal celebration. And what a celebration it was!
