Heard Villa are after Tammy i say NOOOO I like Tammy but his not as good as ollie I think ollie is the best striker in the league hope the plans not to put ollie out on the wing an play Tammy upfront i heard ollie when he first joined Villa say he hated playing left wing but smith said it would make him a better striker. If Jack goes don't put round pegs in square holses. can't see Jack going its dragging on to long if he goes having had pictures with fans I won't be happy if your going just go if your staying great.

Walk it’s a loan we are apparently looking at for Tammy. Which I think makes sense as we are meant to be letting Wesley go either sale or loan and with Davis injured we are going to need the striker. Plus it will challenge both of them to prove they want to be the main forward.

Loan with an option to buy would make sense, any fee then goes onto next year's accounts. Loan only? Not for me Jeff, sick of us bringing on other teams players. Same goes for Tuanzebe.

100% Rob, if we can get Tammy on loan and offload Wesley for 15M then that is great business, if Tammy bangs in the goals then we sign him permanently next summer and we have an extra 15M+ in the kitty to put towards JWP etc. Also, Tuanzebe on loan is a shrewd bit of business as I believe he is out of contact next summer and we'd get him on a free.

Taking someone on loan has surely got to have the following added as a stipulation of Option to buy AND
must play ONE UEFA/ FIFA recognised competitive game for Parent club.

It will stop any 3rd club coming in for them.

Example - Tammy, he can be called back to only Chelsea and play for only Chelsea this season.
Unlike when he could have gone to the Dingles as his competitive game was not recognised (Charity Shield) .
Don't think my heart would take it after the current Jack saga.

There’s no way Tammy will come to villa to sit on the bench

I expect Spurs to go for him to replace Kane.

Totally agree moose. Chelsea are offering him a new contract that is for next season but that will be only to make sure they don’t lose him for free, but I agree with BK bring him in now pay the money next season and smash the rest on JWP. This side is going places and these players would definitely help take us there. I personally think until JG got injured last season we would already have European footy but with the squad we are getting together. Add Tammy and JWP and axel into it squad depth very strong and could truly challenge for a trophy. BK Man U are doing the same with Axel as Chelsea are with Tammy get the extension so don’t lose him for free but if they are willing to take around 8 million plus add ons to make it to say 10/ 14 mill then also get that done now too.

{Ed002's Note - TA is not out of contract next season.}

Only get tammy if his ok with sitting on the bench because ollie is the main striker! I do like tammy but his not gona sit on the bench unless he talks to ollie an ollie can effect the game from the wing but i know he hated being on the wing from brentford days under smith! We don't need a striker wesley will be a decent back up plus you got barry.

Lads, I think we need to move on from the mentality of "player A replaces player B" or "player A won't come because he will be on the bench", we need to think bigger. Look at all the top clubs, which Villa aspire to be amongst, they all have quality options off the bench and options for genuine rotation on a weekly basis. This notion that Tammy would have to be happy with a place on the bench is so small time, Tammy signing gives us so many options, we need quality throughout the squad, not just a strong 11 and a load of players happy to warm the bench. Tammy would back himself to get into the 11, whether that's playing 2 up top, or instead of Watkins and that kind of competition will only benefit Aston Villa, it's players and us the fans.

In principle that’s fine but when you are not getting game time with your parent club are you likely to sign for another team where again your game time is likely to be limited.
? particularly when other options are out there where you will be the number one centre forward for example at West Ham where you will also have the benefit of European football, Arsenal and dare I say it at Spurs also.

Tammy will back himself to get plenty of game time John, 100%!

The press (esp. BM) are pushing the Tammy story heavily, now there is rumour Chelsea will drop their asking price.

I am still not sure on Tammy and don’t think his Championship record is the best yardstick. Ollie is a superior forward in my book and I can’t see Smith playing both too often. That said, we do need greater depth of quality, although few top half clubs have that many aspiring international strikers in reserve.

I am just not convinced Villa are in for Abraham but, if they are, it will be pivotal on Grealish’s departure. Although a different sort of player, Damsgaard looks a more logical fit in the squad.

Bailey to Liverpool - I think this looks unlikely. I believe the scousers are tight on cash, despite a few modest sales over the past week or so. He would offer an option to cover Mane - a forward with pace. Equally, an ingredient we really need.

The question we need to ask AJ is, are Villa better with Watkins and Tammy or Watkins and Wesley? For me the answer is obvious, I'm all for bringing Tammy back, he instantly improves our options up front and adds much needed competition for places. I would love Damsgaard as well, he looks a very adequate replacement for Jack :-)

Quite fancy Watkins and Ings myself. 😁

Tammy wanted too much dosh and I don’t think he is as clinical as Danny. You have to conclude Wes is probably on his way.
