  1. Lolley would be a perfect replacement for Adomah for me - him and El Ghazi can swap sides. Reckon £15m would do it?
  2. Seems reasonable enough to me for an 'English' premier league striker. Hugill cost West Ham £10m. Tammy is a fair bit better and coming from Chelsea not Preston. Not too much more than that however
  3. Last team to do so was Leicester City in 92 and 93. Let's hope that will remain history! Saying that, look at them now

    With us more than likely at home first leg, it’s going to be quite the week for ticket sales following the final game on Sunday. 5 days of sales before the Semi-Final first leg on Saturday 11th May. Will be interesting to see how sales are staggered relative to booking history.
  5. Lot of empty seats in the lower Trinity. Transport issues or sore heads?
  6. Looked like he was fouled in the build up ahead of the through ball to Tammy. Would have provided a better pass
  7. We look a bit flat but it's one half of football, no need to panic. We haven't conceded. Thought McGinn, Bolasie and Abraham all look up for it.
  8. We've had the better opportunities, Swansea haven't made much of their possession. Quite frustrating so far but plenty of time yet for us to develop into the game.

    James Bree

    In my view Bree struggled with Leeds physicality in the box today. There might be some games where he can play CB. Where we are likely to dominate possession for example, but under the pressure of their play, including their ability from set pieces, he was up against it. As mentioned by others, would definitely give him an extended chance at RB. Elmohamody was disappointing in defence yesterday. Our defensive issues are created by lack of CB cover. Got to be a key area for January
  10. 1 point or 0 point, disappointing when you've been 2-0 up at halftime. The late winner from them is sickening but that will happen from time to time playing top sides. That's football. Positives, we were in the game and created chances. Gave them a proper match and their top of the league right now so realistically we're not far off their level, if not equal. We've got our issues though, that's been clear for a while and they need to be addressed in January. We've already been making moves, bringing in another option in goal. Need more options at the back. Will be interesting to see how the new team, sporting director and management trio go about it. I have confidence we have the right people in place to resolve the issues which lost us three points today.

    Blose pre match

    Calf injuries don’t tend to be too serious if it’s just a strain. Needs rest which thankfully the international break will afford. Anyone else at ends with it still being 10 days till this game...
  12. Elmohamedy is basically playing RW! Looked very lively so far.
  13. Surely would go to a Premier League side ahead of us. Not to say we wouldn’t be a good option for him but imagine there would be strong competition.
  14. Surely the player is going to prefer Villa over Boro. Biased obviously but we’re a bigger club and beat them in the playoffs only a few months ago. The only benefit I can see for Boro is from Everton’s perspective, they may be more open to agreeing to a loan to buy than us given the sales they’ve made this summer. There is an element of risk with his injury but you’d hope our medical team would be up to reviewing that prior to agreeing anything. Not convinced by Ojo personally based on what I’ve seen but would be happy to be proven wrong. He is young and still developing. Hoping we’re in for a centre forward also.
  15. Bolassie has come up through the ranks of English football including a fair spell at Championship level. I can’t see why he would be that opposed to ‘drop down a level’, unless he’s seriously arrogant which I don’t believe he is. There was a short documentary about him in the FA Cup Final programme when Palace reached it a few years back. He seems to have come from nothing so you would expect he’s fairly grounded. May not even see it as dropping down. Would help him get fitness/form back playing at a slightly lower level. Also I don’t think Villa would be a step down from Everton in terms of facilities etc. We’ll see what happens but I can’t see any major barriers. If he wants to play, it’s a good option for him.
