Assuming the rumour is correct, should we sell Kodjia to Angers and for what price or do we keep him as Tammy will almost certainly not be with us next season?

Yes oldvillan I think we should sell him, Kodjia does have his moments, and can at times change a game, problem is he is not a team player.
I think he is a bit erratic at times and would be a much better player if he looked up occasionally to see where he is going, and spot his team mates movements.
Sell and invest in a quality attacking midfielder, reason being we are very ordinary when Jack is out.

I'd agree with the post from Villadave. Kodjia can look like a world beater at times, the trouble is that those times are far too rare. His ability to conjure something out of nothing is far outweighed by his lack of composure, the way he often delays a pass or a move breaks down because of him not being in sync with others. To be fair he has been played out of position this season though. He's still got a decent record, decent market value and certainly wish him well after helping us out, but time to move on and get a bit more value for money. easier said than done I know in January though. Same could be said of Bolasie too. must be well over £100k a week between them so let's free up some space in our squad, develop Green and get maybe another in to make a bit more of a consistent contribution.

The problem now is if we do sell him we will have less than a week to replace him and could end up not bringing anyone in due the lack of time left.
With Bolasie now gone back to Everton it looks like Green will be expected to fill the gap. Maybe by shifting 70k a week off our payroll will release some money for investment. We need it!
We have got ourselves into a proper mess over the past 4 - 5 weeks, probably since the Albion game to be honest. Before that game we were looking forward to a transfer window that would enable us to push for promotion. Since then however we have conceded an average 2+ goals a game at home (not even counting the 5 we conceded to Forest! ), not won at home since we beat blues (2 months ago! ) .
We are now looking at teams below us (not above us) and the transfer window is becoming one of short term fix (again! ) to get us to the end of the season.
I'm not blaming the current management team but after the initial 'honeymoon' period we have been woeful. Grealish's absence has been a factor, probably more than anyone would have thought. Add to that Tuanzebe's injury, which has also been a factor.
Best we can hope for this season is upper mid-table.
We need some rabbits pulled out of hats over the next week or so that's for sure.

I thought after about 30 minutes that Saturday was going to be a shambles but the second half showed exactly what we can do when they attempt to play. Bolasie was absolutely shocking, I can remember one ball into the channel for Tammy to chase where I thought "yea that was decent", other than that everything he did just didn't come off, and the basics like a first touch just wasn't there. Mcginn was probably the saving grace again, wished he got his head up more though, twice he carried it 30/ 40 yards steaming forward but didn't look up early enough to play a pass to the lads in front of him and it just fumbles out into nothing.

Green looked up for it off the bench, but I did always think he was better coming on than starting. The defence was a shambles again, I don't even think it's the centre halves anymore, without Tuanzebe it's left to Chester the bring the ball out, something smith has said is part of his philosophy, but Chester can't really do it, he ends up playing people into trouble, on the defensive side though him and Elphic look fine to me, it's the full backs where the problems lie, they always allow players inside instead of showing them down the line, they just look out of place.

The biggest problem to me is still that number 6 position, smith seems to like set player roles in the midfield but neither Hourihane or Bjarnson seem able to play that defensive midfielder role, Bjarnson had a pass accuracy of 55% Saturday, that's appalling for a centre mid, we are never going to win with that. I think Jedinak could do it, we didn't win a game the first season down here without Jedinak playing and that was when he was used in his rightful sitting midfielder role, he's big enough and physical enough to give us a presence, he'll protect the back 4 and we'd be conceding less, and I think he's good enough to get the ball moving! I know he's been injured for a while but when he's fit if we can't find someone in the market, he should be given a chance.

We came back from 2-0 down against the in form team in the league, let's build from this, smash Ipswich and go into the final half of the season the same way we did smiths first few games!

Why do we want him he can't even get in Shrewsbury team.

Don't ask me.
I want a miserable centre half who hates everybody, including his team mates.
Someone they have to keep locked up and starving until kick off.

Putting a squad together to challenge for promotion is not an easy task for any manager, however putting a squad together when you've not even had one full transfer window is impossible.

If you don't give Smith the time to build his own team how can he possibly succeed? How is he to realise his potential when idiots call for his head before letting him build a team.

Foolish fans who expect instant results are deluded, gone are the days of being able to pump millions into the club to put a team together in less than one window.
I say, get real and give the man a chance and ignore the comments of the impatient.

Except he works as a coach, not a manager. He has openly said that while he may provide general input to what the squad requires, he doesn't like to be involved in anything further.
His only real requirement seems to be a willingness to learn and adapt which is all well and good but ability is necessary.
The problem for us is that we will be priced out of moves for genuinely good players due to being Villa which leaves us paying over the odds for average players. The majority of these players either know they are at their pinnacle with us so happy to pick up their top wages and stop trying or are using us as a stepping stone to the EPL and are arrogant and selfish.

Wouldn't say no but he wouldn't drop his wage demands anywhere near what Terry did. Minaola certainly wouldn't allow it.
He'll probably end up in China or US.

Anybody else noticed that over the last 2 days the odds of Tammy joining wolves with bookies have gone from 5-1 to 5-2, and today 11-4. That's a little shocking (and worrying).

He had to be recalled by the 14th. He can’t have his loan cancelled now until end of season.

Anyone know when Jack's back?

Latest reports from the club suggest he'll miss the few and aim to be back for the Sheff Utd game.

We all know our defence, has been terrible lately . But didn't anybody, hear Deano say, that Chester is carrying a knee injury. In other circumstances, I don't suppose he would even be playing . This just goes to show, what a defensive state Brucie left us in . Iv said before as an ex defender, you would think that would be his first priority.
Come on Deano, kick a few backsides and get that energy and spark back .
Onwards&Upwards Villaforever.
