Tammy Abraham

I think we'd need to sign someone else. But I also think people are underselling Kodjia's ability in the central role. He seems to be a bit of a forgotten man in that regard.

I think he has to say that otherwise he's a) putting a lot of pressure on the guy we might get in and b) not empowering the players already here to step up and compete.

The thing is Hogan has flopped here. At Brentford he is a legend. It's like us not wanting benteke back, we would as he was excellent here.

The fee is the real issue I think.

We really wouldn't. He's utter shit and he is finished. One season wonder.

Hogan was ruined at Villa and don't thunk Brentford would take him now either.

That's a good point.

He can hardly say "yeah we definitely need to sign someone!!" because as you say, people like Kodjia and *shudder* Hogan will hear that and think "Oh great, cheers. Thanks for having faith in me"

Smith has as good as said we already have replacements here. If Tammy leaves it's unlikely we will be getting anyone in to replace him.

Kodja. That's it.

Hogan is just dour. Davis needs to show he is able first before we throw him in.

Hepburn-Murphy needs loaned out to gain experience.

If i was him and considering the last 6 games or so.......i would go.

he and a few others at Villa are doing all the work, in terms of carrying the torch.....and if i was Jack, i would do the same.

He is making the right decision.

the sooner we drop promotion talk and concentrate on building a team the better.

 

 

 

I don't see it that way, there's many reasons why the form is the way it is at the moment, tired squad, best player on sidelines etc.. but what you say is valid, Villa doesn't have that team look about it, yet...

I don't think he is that bad at all. Yes he wasn't as he was but at this level I think and under a fan base  that supports he can good again.

Personally don't think Kodjia would be able to fill the gap left by Abraham. He is a very different sort of player, doesn’t work as hard for the team and likes to do more on his own to create goals. In his first season here he was really the only player with a clue about scoring so ruled the roost. But I’m not so sure he would fit into Smith’s attacking formations too well.

Tammy is also awesome for us when defending corners. Losing him will make another already weak area even weaker. 

I hate Wolves. Just leave the kid alone. You’re already comfortable midtable, sign him in the summer you ****s!!

I agree. People forget that Kodjia looked very good up top this season before Abraham came into the side. Brentford couldn't handle him. If we are looking to play the way Smith likes to play then Kodjia is much better at holding it up than Abraham. The issue is the pressing. Abraham does that much better.

Wow. Some super-sleuth deduction there from SKY. Who would have thought the decision was down to the club that own him?

Maybe but people on here seem to be keen to blame Tammy or Wolves for this happening

There are many reasons why he has failed.....his movement is poor, thats why Klopp dumped him......conversely, Tammy is on the go constantly, thats why he makes goals for himself by that movement.

chalk and cheese.

Could have been TA Himself. I think Grabban did at sunderland.
