  1. I think it makes sense letting younger lads with high potential play at an older age group whilst also (hopefully) being taught the principles and style of football that is the same as the first team. Also, being loaned out when it is deemed necessary for their improvement; something I think we have missed the boat on somewhat. On a side note, it's always irked me that the local talent pool in the Midlands is quite evenly spread between the clubs academies, especially in the last ten years or so. Hopefully with the above being implemented, youth scouting and identifying players with an actual football model in mind will maybe give us an edge in attracting the best that local talent has to offer.
  2. Whelan is such a fantastic player to watch these days.
  3. He couldn’t have got booked for deception or else El Ghazi wouldn’t have walked. Two game ban for him will be incoming.
  4. They do a nice triangle with the first passer running on to get the quick flick from Bamford at the end of it. Unfortunately, our two cbs are athletic enough to cover it when it comes their way in between them and our fullback. Leeds are a bit toothless though without Roofe on the pitch and/or in form. They’ll be relying on set pieces and shots from outside the box to progress in the playoffs, it’ll just be their play getting into the final third will be very slick. They played a physical style with a hot tempered crowd behind them today and to be honest I didn’t feel that overwhelmed by it all. Id be more nervous against West Brom who have two much better strikers to contest against.
  5. Konsa at Brentford I'd go for if we go up and Tuanzebe is off limits from United. Think he'd be brilliant next to Mings.
  6. That and the accumulation of injuries they've had. Bielsa's teams always run out of gas due to his constant pressing style, so fatigue and injuries are always on the cards near the end of the season. Also saw that Alioski (sp) got injured in their last game too; looked like a ligament tweak. Er, shame that.
  7. When I find myself in times of trouble, the Scottish meatball comes to me,Spraying balls of wisdom, John McGinnAnd in my hour of darkness he is sprinting right in front of meRunning into tomorrow, John McGinnJohn McGinn, John McGinn, John McGinn, John Mcginn Villa's No.7, John McGinn
  8. I think after that result, some of us as a fan base (myself included) forget that the players involved today and “filled in” have been part of the training regime Dean and his team have set out over the past 5 months or so. They know what to do and more importantly, what is expected of them. We’ve also won three different ways this week. I’m so chuffed to be a villa fan at the moment .
  9. If it is true, I’d go two up top.
  10. Sounds like they’ve got financial issues overhanging them aswell. The pressure mounts for them.
  11. Probably been said on this already, but Bowen at Hull is a cracking player. If we were to go up, I’d definitely like to see him in a villa shirt
  12. Looks like he's taking stuff from the training ground and implementing it on the pitch. Seems like he has a good mindset and wants to learn/improve. Definitely keep him here next season if possible.
  13. His brother is supposed to be a real talent too, Aaron I think his name is?
  14. Reminds me of Tuanzebe, will make wonders for Chester to go to the right of the centrebacks too.
