  1. I’ll start off by saying this we are a huge club that should in the Top 8 in my humble opinion, yes we have been promoted recently as I do understand but a club of this stature should be cementing itself back quickly with a vengeance. I understand our rich history has nothing to do with the present and football has no mercy on that. The players we have been linked with has been sickening i.e (Murray, Gayle,Assombalonga,Nkietah for example and much worse that don’t spring to mind just yet) Their not in their teams for a reason with Nkietah being exempt but he has zero experience and that is too much of a risk. I hope most agree especially those that have seen this club competing at the top end of the table for many years except for the past decade or so. I like DS as a manager he seems to say the right things but his decision making is going to cost him his job eventually and ill be sad to see that happen, if that does happen we need a world class coach that can attract quality players like a Pochettino or even a Michael Laudrup (where is he these days) and put us where we belong, why not we have top owners with a huge club and resources. How can we have these so called world class technical directors and then get a player like Drinkwater who hasn’t kicked a ball properly for how long . I’m not a scout or genius of any sort but I looked to the top five leagues across Europe for forwards who have a respectable goal return and showcase a certain style of play who are more in the realistic net but also away from the poor man players that some of our fans and journalists have linked us with, all are expected to do well now rather than in years to come. We have seen players explode in other leagues and come here and flop miserably so of course it doesn’t always work out that way and sometimes stats don’t matter in those instances. For example Scoring 20 in Eredivisie doesn’t mean you’re going to be a success in the Premier League, you can score 10,6,7 or 0 it really is that simple. But im sure many of you know this and seen it many times. Donyel Malen – PSV - ST Denis Bouanga – As- Saint Etienne – Winger Breel Embolo - Borussia Monchengladbach - ST Olivier Giroud – Chelsea ( Highly unlikely but there’s not many players to choose from in this division) Again quality if gets going with the right service Kelechi Iheanacho – Leicester City - ST - would have been ideal but he seems comfortable with the foxes. Andre Gray – Watford FC – ST – He could do well here not entirely sure but better than most linked with Milot Rashica – Werder Bremen- Winger – Would be an excellent signing and change the dimension going forward immediately No LB's spring to mind but we need an immediate upgrade in that position Why we spent so much on Wesley from a league that is equivalent to the lower half of the championship was beyond me, he was not even prolific there however this game is always a risk even on players that have proven to be good. It is desperate time’s desperate measures now and we NEED two forwards and a right winger, LB if possible as our options are severely weak. Majority of the squad not good enough but let’s try and get behind them regardless. Taylor, AEM, Hause, Nakamba , Luiz, Jota, Wesley, Kodjia all not good enough and they should not be near the first team however Luiz and and nakamba could be useful in rotation and that’s all. We showed nothing against City yesterday it was embarrassing can’t say much more on the matter. We was not able to do the basics it was awful.
  2. Its been an exciting window , everyone saying its brilliant but we cant say brilliant until we see performances or what come may. I will say no matter what happens we gave it a hell of a good crack rebuilding a squad that was left to bare bones. From reading it feels like many of our fans dont have the high expectations for our club as weve been overly satisfied linked to average championship players and saying they will be over the moon . WE ARE ASTON VILLA do you know how huge our club is , we should be aiming as high as wolves in their first season, no actually higher as they are nowhere near our grand stature as a club and also grabbing the ballers they are linked with Diagne is a player that im glad we are not linked with it seems like he wouldn’t make the grade here.. Jean Kevin Augustin on the other hand looks impressive and would fair well here also he has the potential to grow further. Between him and wesley at least one of them should prove worthy. Our main striker must hit 11/12 goals to be considered enough to cope with the premier league . 14+ goals means you are actually a good striker as this league proves even the best of players do not score for fun. Im also glad we didnt sign maupay hes a decent player dont get me wrong but as i stated we are AVFC and we are back with the big boys lets shoot for the stars and aim higher
  3. I for one didn’t fully approve of trezeguet as i see him as a player who may show A lot of inconsistency but compared to jota i rate him higher. Its baffling as no team as come for jota and all of a sudden we believe hes going to be fantastic for us.. he may very well be but for many seasons he hasnt done otherwise hed be in the Premier League or somewhere on that level by now. Yes i feel jota will start against Spurs too but i didnt include him in the starting XI as i feel we have better options. Why did he not become fans favourite at blues if he was so good and look how poor they are ?
  4. I’ve been keeping track of his recent displays and he has played well certainly trying to seal his place in our starting XI however compared to trezeguet or benrahma (who i think we will sign) he isnt as good but i would like him to prove me wrong if he is. Also the opposition in these friendlies are not exactly world beaters.
  5. Yes i agree here, I described the player as someone who can play right wing and centre forward if wesley gets injured or such , or simply a centre forward if we have the funds but they will need to be happy with being on the bench most of the season
  6. I couldn’t agree more with this, thats why we must hope that our wingers can bring goals in along with wesley , if he gets 11 or more im sure we can say he has had a comfortable season . Maupay is not the player we desire I doubt he will make the grade in the Premier League . A player that can play right wing or centre forward ideally more proven is essential as im unsure about trezeguet and i feel benrahma was the player to snatch he has that final third quality in abundance. A bit concerned about too many brentford players linked i mean they didnt finish in the top ten so we must be careful. A centre midfielder who can play defensive and attacking as a back up to luiz and mcginn is necessary, are we happy to settle with hourihane as that option im unsure who btw is fantastic when he gets himself going. Kodjia and hogan must go and bikir is nowhere near good enough. Jota also has been playing in championship for more than a few seasons and he has attracted no team from the top divisions, he also was not getting rave reviews at SHA so i doubt he is all of a sudden going to be a top player here regardless, however i could be wrong. Anyway this is the team that must select for now ( if we sign Saed anyway and either keeper) We need to steal some of the talent jorge mendez has as clients as they are some top quality players, suso seems to have the lesser end of talent to choose from. Signing players that have done well in the belgian league doesn’t really give me much confidence. ( Benteke excluded) Steer/Etheridge/Butland Guilbert Engles Mings Targett Luiz Mcginn Grealish Trez/Benrahma El Ghazi Wesley
