  1. Barkley would be a stunning sign of intent. Make t happen please.
  2. This rumour has more chance than Rashica. Percy has mentioned, we have the obvious Chelsea links. We have done loans with Chelsea last 2 seasons- although I wish we hadn't have gone the Drinkwater route. Think this is a goer and prefer Barkley all day over RLC, purely down to injury risk
  3. Imagine Barkley- Super Jack and Traore all in the same starting 11. Offensively we will at times be unplayable. Make this happen!!
  4. Conor will be a useful squad player. As a fanbase we need to realise that every player cannot be a nailed on starter- we are not yet Man City or Liverpool. So Conor, Trez and el Ghazi will become our 2nd string 11 and squad players. They can all do a job. Westwood and Enda Stevens despised on the forums are still performing for teams that placed higher than Villa last season. Connor is better than Westwood
  5. Abdoulaye Docoure would have been perfect. Everton got a bargain at 22 million

    Does our scouting network extend to Bournemouth and Brentford? On a positive spin- The Cherries fan forum rate him much better than Wilson. If it wasn't for him being in the last year of his contract a much higher price. They don't want another Fraser situation
  7. We absolutely should explore whether there are other positions better suited to Keinan. I don't think he is a striker- but he could possibly be a left back/ left CD. Pep has apparently told Nathan Ake he wants to utilise Ake as a holding defensive midfielder. We have in the past played Dublin and Jedinak in CD. Even Matty Cash is a converted midfielder. Therefore perhaps we should explore Keinan's options. There is a footballer in there.
  8. Or a blessing in disguise. I want him to choose Newcastle. Wilson has many limitations.
  9. Exactly this. Freddy- and Cash will both potentially being able to play right side midfield - silly to sell --unless the money being paid is ridiculous. However, I cannot see any French team apart from PSG paying 20 million plus for a RB
  10. If we have indeed bid 21 million- this is getting silly. Walk away if 21million doesn't seal the deal. 28 year with dodgy injury record- not worth a penny more.
  11. I agree wholeheartedly- United fans i. general seem the least knowledgeable I have come across.
  12. Yep very true. First of all he isn't for sale - let's stop the small club mentality. If he is for sale price is 100 million 80 million with adds ons to a 100. Even Brentford can play hardball. Benrahma case in point last year. If that was some of our fan base we would have bent over.
  13. Whilst it is frustrating- think we all need to remind ourselves the window shuts on October 5th and actually October 16th for transfers from Championship clubs( we can still do business with Brentford for example until October16th! In any normal season that would be considered loads of time. Appreciate we all want new players in for the start of the season but the start of the season this year is like no other that has ever gone before. The evidence does not point to Villa being short of cash- vibrant academy. New coaches coming in- improvements at Bodymoor- not selling to buy. Alan Nixon however you rate or dont rate saying we will be spenders. I have us pinned down to spend 100 million minimum
  14. sounds very very decent. Nothing that you could disagree with there. With the remaining 25mill a physically imposing holding brute of a midfielder such as Doucoure. Would also love Sarr on the left instead of Rachica Sarr - Grealish - Buendia
  15. We only have to look at Dean Henderson as an example as to why we shouldn't discount any loans. He was never going to stay at Sheff Utd but helped them immensely this year, as well as pushing his own claims/profile. Arsenal took loans. Until we truly establish ourselves back in the top tier, we shouldn't shoot ourselves in the foot or be too snobby and say no loans. Try before you buy- whats not to like? if the buy option isn't there, as long as the player has contributed, again it helps.
