    Dean Smith

    We didn’t play particularly well today but we deserve some luck after the past few weeks, but boy, what a job Dean Smith has done in 12 months. It really couldn’t have gone any better. From mid table Championship to mid table Premier League playing some of the best football I can remember at Villa. If we can just survive this season I think we’ll go from strength to strength.
  2. That’s one way of lowering your price to get a move in the next window anyway.
  3. Dreadful when he came on yesterday. I’d definitely give Davis a chance before Kodjia gets another.

    Wesley Moraes

    I’m not judging him based on yesterday. He had hardly any service first half, and absolutely no service second half. He’s been purchased to score goals, so I’ll judge him when he gets the chances to score.
  5. I’m not liking that defence, hard to see us getting anything today.
  6. I can’t see us spending £30m on a 28 year old with little sell on value in 2/3 years, it goes against everything Purslow has said in the past. We’ll go for someone much younger in my opinion.
  7. I expect we’ll hear something shortly from John Percy if it’s true.
  8. We’re signing Benrahma according to this tweet from an Express reporter. Exclusive with @ScottBurns75: Neal Maupay is having a medical at Brighton, Said Benrahma is heading to Aston Villa and Brentford are looking to do a deal to sign Sandro Kulenovic, who has been dubbed the new Mandzukic - to replace them express.co.uk/sport/football… #Bees
  9. I imagine we’ll keep the two loan spaces free and see if there’s any deals to be done on deadline day (with a view to permanent moves).
  10. If he comes in and helps keep us up then it’s worth it, regardless of if we make a profit if City buy him back.
  11. From the Bournemouth end it seems the fee is £26.5m, and from the Villa end it’s £20m. I think Villa are trying to save face a little because we’ve been well and truly mugged off it we’re paying £26.5m. I love Mings, but this signing could have happened anytime at Villa in the past 12 years (overpaying for English talent without finding gems abroad for a fraction of the price), have we learnt nothing? At this point I’m not really sure what the point of Suso is.
  12. The window seems to have finally sprung to life. I expect we’ll get 2 or 3 signing in the next week. I think the players are back for pre season on Monday.

    An £8m transfer fee in 2011 is probably equivalent to £20m now.
