  1. Not his best game yesterday, but his work rate and pressing are miles ahead of where we were last season, his stats back this up too.

    Ezri Konsa

    Stood out again for for me today. If he played for a top 4 team he'd be touted as one of the best in the league. The lad is flying under the radar, in a world where Ben white is worth 50m, Ezri is a true rolls Royce player, composed and just reads the game so we'll. The closest villa centre half in terms of style to McGrath I've seen. Potentially every player eventually needs to be upgraded if we're to challenge the top 4, but he's one of the few who can play at at the top along with Emi Martinez.
  3. Fine margins today, but their quality was the difference. If we played that game again 10 times we'd have won more often than not. We need to build on it and show some positive consistency. Encouraging.
  4. Not picking on you as I've seen it a lot, but I really don't understand this attitude, how is it scandalous if our recruitment team had no interest anyway. Just because we as fans want to sign someone doesn't mean anything really, there's so many variables at play, why is it not scandalous that we didn't try for any other hundreds of players that move this window.
  5. This is it, we've invested heavily in our youth structure to create an elite youth team and players capable of becoming world class players. We should be thinking more ajax than man city when it comes to the new villa. We'll buy 1/2 marquee players every summer and look to bring through 2/3 youth players that are capable of becoming 30-40m. What's the point of that investment if we don't offer them a pathway into the team? This season alone could be a a breakthrough for Chuk, Jacob Ramsay and JPB. If even 1 of them can catapult themselves into a starter, we're well on our way.
  6. His problem is that his only tempo is high and he tries to force the play all the time, he a total instinct player. He's a decent player, but our expectations are rising and unfortunately I don't see him getting to the level we expect which is a top 6 team. As soon as Traore and Bailey came on, the game changed in our favour and that's because they are a better quality player than anyone Watford had on the pitch. We need to improve every position ruthlessly.
  7. Very good today, even from the left. Will offer us a lot from either wing.
  8. Ronaldinho today, not Ronald McD...
  9. Really poor performance so far, no sense of any identity to this team, but a long way to go. We need to try and get into the game and try and salvage a draw and build. Poor pre-season showing here.
  10. Same problems in midfield, a lot to do second half.
  11. El Ghazi off and move Buendia wide right, bring Ramsay on midfield is being played through.
  12. Spurs and West Ham, I think I read. But you're right it's that constant haggling that has held spurs back from pushing on to the next level. It looks like we're prepared to overpay a little if it means we get out primary targets. Ollie, Buendia and Ings all appeared a little expensive at first but I'm sure the latter two will prove great value just as Ollie has.
  13. Brilliant Signing who has been crucial to our progress over the last 3 seasons. Ready made captain.
  14. That arsenal side looks as poor as there's even been in the pl era. They don't look capable of a top 6 finish and there seems to be a lot of unrest behind the scenes. Arteta also seems very unlikeable.
