  1. Since when he is more of a left back than a right back? :? i thought he was a centre-back? We brought him as a goalkeeper :winkold:

  3. Got a good footballing brain, that is clear to see, and linked up well with Bannan and Ireland last night but just sometimes far too slow in possession. Game time is needed

    Considering the number of games he has actually played 1. in general over the past 2 years 2. at villa 3. with the players around him he was looking sharp last night, some good little runs and balls through and could have easily scored in the first half. A lack of confidence is holding him back slightly but that can be said for Albrighton, Makoun and to some extent Delfouneso
  5. 1 chance 1 goal yesterday, albeit it was offside but that is all he needs in a game to score.
  6. Better than Dunne, but that really is not saying much. Wears his heart on his sleeve which is a very good plus point, but being passionate doesn't win games or defend goals

    I'm not sure that having beef with Gabby would be enough to put Big' Eck off signing a player if he wanted him 'Beef' is one thing, racial abuse is another http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/2008/nov/05/newcastleunited-astonvilla

    Barton & Gabby have history. Nail in the coffin.

    That is like saying Chelsea should have got Benitez instead of Villas-Baos, he would know how to get the best out of Torres.

    Alan Hutton

    The problem is that SW looked poor back end of MON reign, and poor last season and then poor against Walsall. The solution is to get a better left back. Problem is there are little to no decent left backs out there that available. Solution. Play Young there instead. That leaves right back free and with Hutton available (as he fell out with 'arry during the later stages of last season), we should go for him and think a little bit towards the future. LY is 32, AH is 26
  11. GK we have Given RB we have Young, Lichaj, Cuellar LB we have Warnock, Young, Clark CB we have Dunne, Collins, Cuellar, Clark CM we have Petrov, Makoun, Delph, Bannan, Ireland, Herd, Hogg The majority of the players above we playing consistently in a team that finished 6th so don't right them off just yet. CM is probably the next area (after we get Given & N'Zogbia in) we need to asses as to get some experience in, if nothing else. Also, the admin staff have been back a week as of today, PF has been back less than that so I can understand why deals that taken this long.

    Dunne and Collins aren't shit. Its only just over 12 months since they were a major part of the 4th best defence in the league conceding 39 goals over a season. In fact apart from a freak result at Chelsea where we conceded 7 we only conceded 32 goals in the other 31 games which is excellent. Dunne, Collins, Cuellar, Young, Warnock, Clark are all very capable defenders and I am hopeful we can do well defensively this season which will at least give us a base to build from. I agree with Mark here The defence didn't play well last season because they didn't understand GH and his philosophy. AM is more like MON and I think the defence will be back to how it was under MON
  13. This isn't far from the truth, so I understand
