  1. It's been bugging me for a while now and whilst the obvious answer is...''You can always improve', how do we get to the next level as a club and what positions do we strengthen in the Summer? I'm so in awe of the job Smith is doing and love so many of our players at the moment, I'm finding it hard to see who we replace in our current starting XI. I think most are in agreement that the following is our best XI when fit.... -----------------Watkins-------------- Grealish---------------------Traore ------------------Barkley-------------- ----------McGinn---Luiz------------- Target
  2. There has been a lot of discussion about both barkley and Luiz so I thought I would create a topic about players we are likely to sell or buy next window. Sell: Luiz is most likely although not guaranteed, one of hause or engels we need better depth at cb so seeking them so we can bring in a good young player to develop like Leicester did with fofana is important, Taylor and Elmo will probably walk so at the very minimum we need another Lb preferably an upgrade on targett and we may need another rb if Smith doesn't think guilbert is up for it (I would disagree but whatever). I think we wi
  3. So, keeping it realistic where possible, Is there a certain player or players you wouldn't like to see us sign during this window. (Keep it simple please ladies and gents, No squad lists of 25) I'll kick off.. Joe Hart.
  4. Do we have a tread for this yet? I hear a new forward might be needed in January... If not, now we do. Been linked with quite a few players already but nothing done yet as far as I know. They've posted a list of players with expiring contracts in the Mail and there are some interesting names among them. Quite a few we'd never be able to attract of course. But some that we might. So as good a start as any https://www.birminghammail.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/69-players-aston-villa-could-17076711
  5. So with our new Sporting Director, Manager and Assistant Manager in place, who do we think we'll be looking at in January? Wonder if Terry might be able to lure Gary Cahill back to Villa? We sorely need a solid CB to partner Chester.
  6. So. I know it's early and there's a long way to go this year. We may even be in a different division. We may not. One thing that is for sure is the rules have changed. The transfer window opens on June 9th and closes on Thursday 9th August at 5pm. So there are no transfers after the first fixture of the PL. And no one is staying up till midnight anymore. A week or so ago the EFL decided to join the party. https://www.efl.com/news/2018/february/earlier-closure-of-transfer-window-agreed-by-efl-clubs/ So if we don't go up we would still be able to loan players or sign free contr
  7. So with the start of the window coming soon do we think any faces will be leaving us come January? Surplus imo:- Bunn- contract expires end of season anyway. Richards, Elphick, De Laet, Lyden,- contracts end in summer 2019 and Tshisbola & McCormack end 2020. If we can offload this bunch and recoup about £6m in fees and slice a big chunk off the wage bill too and allow us to bring in players that we will use.
  8. As a reprise from the intense going round in circle debate of Bruce's effectiveness as manager so far, and seeing we are in the transfer window, I was wondering hypothetically what fee would people think would be the best price we could get for our key players, and would be that magic number which the board would stop and consider selling? Obviously I'm not suggesting we sell any of these players, and selling them would massively harm our chances of promotions. But what fee would you accept, under the idea that ever player has a price, we were under no pressure to sell and if promised the
  9. Usually the transfer window is a time for excitement about new players, and I am very pleased with the Terry signing. I've really come round to it in a big way. Clearly we also need a keeper (probably Johnstone), we know Bruce wants Whelan (and you have to think it'll happen), and personally I'd like to see a quality attacking player come in given that this was our main downfall last year. This is all well and good, but our squad size is ridiculous. In many ways therefore I'd argue that pruning the squad effectively is at least as important as who comes in. Currently we have 34 players i
  10. These are the usual suspects when discussing who we all want to see leave, or arguing should be kept on for another season. I was just curious if you could only pick one, who it would be? I always have a sense of the silent majority being against certain players leaving, the flip side of the coin being some people wanting them all gone. But for both those extremes and everyone in the middle, who is it you dislike being part of our club the most?
  11. Now we have the main problems sorted, GK RB & CM's, Who are we likely to clearout? I'd go with Gollini - eventual sale during/after loan Bunn - Bench till Out of contract Hutton - train with U23 till OoC Richards - give away/payoff Elphick - Bench till Hull/S'land relegated then they buy Ally - Sell/loan to OoC Amavi - Last chance to prove himself Bacuna - Bench till sold Westwood - U23 -> Out asap - Give away/payoff Gardner - come on Forest you know you want to Jedi - see Elphick McC - if true -> sell Ayew - Last
  12. Hi, I've been out of the loop a bit and the transfer thread moves at such a pace. I thought it would be useful to list the ins & outs that have happened this summer. Help me out with estimated fees as well. INS: 9 Peirluigi Gollini - Goalkeeper - Hellas Verona - £5m Tommy Elphick - Central Defender - Bournemouth - £3.3m James Chester - Central Defender - WBA - £8m Ritchie de Laet - Right-back - Leicester - £3m Mile Jedinak - Defensive Midfield - Crystal Palace - £4m Aaron Tshibola - Central Midfield - Reading - £5m Albert Adomah - Right
  13. I would like to start a topic that I don't think has been discussed in much depth, however one that needs serious attention when considering how successful this transfer window was. I am over the moon with our summer activity and the people we have brought in, however I have one 'devil's advocate' question which has been bugging me for the last few days: IF we get promoted this season, are we going to sell players like Chester, Jedinak, Kodjia because they will not be able to compete at the top 10 PL level? Or are they just going to be in reserves and eating up our wage budget for the ne
  14. ...as Take That once said. So we have spent a fair ol' whack of money on decent players and therefore many fans are going to inevitably expect instant results, promotion and an entitlement to success. Although I would say that promotion absolutely has to be the target given what we have spent, I am not personally expecting instant results and I don't think other fans should either. We have completely overhauled the team, the management, the backroom and the boardroom and the whole dynamic of the club has changed very suddenly. All of these new players have to get to know each other, get u
  15. UPDATED - window closed February 3rd 2015 I know there is a transfer speculation thread, I thought I'd make one for completed transfers where the first post (ie, this one) is kept up to date with completed moves involving Premier League clubs and other noteworthy deals. I'll probably exclude fringe players being shipped out from big clubs to lower league clubs unless they are interesting. My definition of a fringe player is whether I've heard of him or not. Wolves have signed Jordan Graham from us on a free. Jordan Graham has a grand total of zero first team appearances for us, so nobo
