    Scott Hogan

    Looks awkward in movement to me but Villa haven't really played to his strengths either. A strange signing by Bruce and probably his worst.

    Transfer Window Summer 2018

    Going to go against the grain here and say I’d take Clark any day of the week instead of Elphick. What if Chester picks up an injury? Clark would be a very good signing at this level if Newcastle also pay part of his wages.

    I'm never really going to be convinced by Bruce's footballing philosophy. However by keeping most of the better players in last season's squad who are now conditioned to whats required in the Championship plus new owners and more players coming in I feel Villa will gain automatic promotion this season by some distance.

    Jack Grealish

    Love the way most of his passes are perfectly weighted. Has a better all round game than Deli Ali and should be picked for the England squad now.

    With Chester coming back in then I’m in no doubt the back four will be more focused. 0-3 away win.

    Looked a bit more like his old self last night when he came on. Encouraging!

    Axel Tuanzebe

    Before Grealish and Kodjia came on Tuanzebe was Villa’s best performer last night finally getting a run out in his preferred position. Unless Villa bring in another more experienced CB then Bruce must now play Tuanzebe alongside Chester as Villa’s 1st choice centre back pairing for the Championship season. Playing him at FB won’t benefit the player or the team at all.

    I just can’t understand why under Bruce the team can’t seem to play consistently well for ninety minutes. It’s generally one shit half of football with something better In the other 45. Also even though Bruce and his coaching team have had a fair amount of time the movement up front is still as terrible when he first arrived. Seen Hourihane waving his arms in frustration a few times tonight having no forward pass on from midfield.

    Let a far better keeper go out on loan.

    Couldn't figure what system Villa were playing 1st half and I still can't just into 2nd half.

    Well that was bloody awful. Once Villa get beyond the halfway line in possession movement is non existent.
