  1. How much do we think Henry would be? Right age, worked with Smith twice, links up well with Watkins judging from the clips, competition for Targett. Seems like a very good fit.
  2. Our deliveries are terrible or non existent due to dithering outside the box. So frustrating. Feel bad for Watkins, he ends up going looking for the ball instead.
  3. Unnerved on the ball, carries it so well. Rarely gives away possession, draws fouls. All of this we've known for ages. Crazy to think he wasn't even at his best and still got motm. Jack is exactly what England needed in that semi final vs Croatia, and what they'll need facing the better teams. Hope Southgate can bury whatever the problem is, and really start to integrate Jack into the first 11.
  4. Very much this. The amount of good work going into the club has been amazing. It's also why many of us get so annoyed with lazy pundits/journalists. Obviously there is a lot to prove on the pitch, but the owners/management team should be getting a lot more outside recognition for what is happening at Villa. Especially when you see what's going on at West Ham/Fulham etc.
  5. Welcome Ross, Great window, great signing, this is the one that will make people sit up and take notice of what's been happening here. Improving our weak areas with quality players both in terms of stats and personality. Villa are coming!
  6. Wonder how much getting an England call up this week has an influence on what he wants to do? If he still can't get in and someone like Foden gets in ahead of him, does that make Jack think again?
  7. The interview is up on the Guardian. Very good read. I think getting him in could be the last piece of the puzzle in us taking major steps forward. Is it possible this could all already be done? There's been a few youth development hires recently as well.
  8. Lets try to get the players out who don't contribute anything first like Lansbury and Hogan. That must be about 60-70k a week in wages right there. Use that money for talented young players that can phase the rest (Taylor, Nyland, Jota etc) out over the next few windows. Going to much more of a squad game now, can't see anyone that signed last year leaving unless a good offer comes in.
  9. Obviously easier said than done, but I want to see players coming in that can consistently perform week in, week out. I know there's been a break but I can't remember the last time El Ghazi actually did something meaningful given how excited we were to get him signed at the start of the season. I think with someone like Deulofeu we'd be getting the same thing, one decent performance every 4 weeks.
  10. https://www.theguardian.com/football/2020/jul/19/michael-emenalo-the-narrative-that-white-is-good-has-to-change Michael Emenalo - a big part of the successful players that have come through at Chelsea. Ready to get back into football. Seems like a no brainer to replace Suso if he's willing to potentially work in the championship for a while.
  11. This. As poor as Davis and Samatta have been. The service they get has been awful. We look clueless when we get Into final 1/3 of the pitch. Some players that can cross the ball well on a consistent basis would be a great start.
  12. Definitely think the influence 1 & 2 have had on this season is underestimated. Can't recall any other squad needing such major surgery. Combine that with FFP and we were at a major disadvantage before we'd even started. Being hopeful, I'd like to think the club is in a better state wherever we end up. Most of the high wages are gone, any player that leaves we'll actually get some money for (12 players going out the door for pittance didn't help much with no.2). Much better platform to build on next season. We just need the right people to do it.
  13. Awful from top to bottom, so many questions need to be asked. I feel sorry for Smith as it seems between Suso getting in players he didn't want and Terry waiting for him to fail, he's managing with a hand tied behind his back. The problem is he's not helping himself as we don't seem to have improved anywhere across the pitch. Where are the ideas? the creativity? a plan to deal with whoever is in front of us? And if we don't have those where is the fight? We're staring relegation in the face, but we have a very good chance of getting out of it, yet no one seems bothered. So so frustratin
  14. This, though I think he did a few things well. It's time the club moved on from this now so we can concentrate fully on the league. Hopefully all the companies house activity means NSWE are preparing to buy out the last of what Xia owns.
