I think 28m is a good deal for Watkins, he'll scores goals, exactly what we need! Comparing him to Calum wilson at 20m, he's the fresher of the 2 and comes across like he's hungry for success, Wilson isn't any of them, I'd like to see Todd cantwell come in, he can play wide and would also be good back up for Grealish, it looks like Deano want to bring in young English talent, cantwell will definitely get better and better.

I agree with you 81, not sure he has been mentioned on here, but he is certainly a good player.
Full of energy, very direct, can take players on, and can see a pass.
He`s a good shout 81.

The king rumours seem to have died off today, anyone like to take a punt on the next player in the door? No and’s or or’s just each poster pick 1 name, just for a bit of fun after this great day for the club?

Clement Grenier from rennes.

I will go for Niclas Eliasson of Bristol City.

6.) 09 Sep 2020 23:11:31
Martinez I’m going for.

7.) 10 Sep 2020 06:58:22
Ok well as nobody has mentioned him yet, I’ll go with Joshua King.

8.) 10 Sep 2020 08:35:51

Looks like Barkley out for a few games. Surely we have to start traore, he's more attacking minded than Connor! The bench looks a bit thin to me could be a worry further down the line.

Villa 81

1.) 24 Nov 2020 14:27:22
Agreed in the current system it has to be Traore in for Barkley, with the three behind Watkins interchanging.
The other option is to go two up top in a 4-4-2.especially against certain opposition.
Completely off topic, but had dream the other night about Villa signing Harry Winks whilst he's not getting game time at Spurs. would be quality for us!

2.) 24 Nov 2020 16:22:42
Yeah I agree he would be a great signing, definitely need a left back in my opinion.

3.) 24 Nov 2020 16:41:17
Winks for me is just Ashley Westwood but younger, side to side, keep it moving and play it safe.

4.) 27 Nov 2020 19:32:44
Pull grealish inside wang trez on the left and traore on the right job done.



21 Nov 2020 20:24:14
I think we need a left back in January. Who would you like to see come in lads?

Villa 81



31 Oct 2020 08:53:00
Does anyone think traore will start tomorrow instead of trez? I think he needs to start a game, we need to see what he's capable of, my mates watched a lot of him and raves about him, I've noticed he's already been put down on here, which is a shame as he's barely played!

Villa 81

1.) 31 Oct 2020 12:35:32
I always thought he’d be a back up to be honest, he barely featured for Lyon last season, mainly due to a change in system but he has also played striker so he wasn’t really fancied.

The coaches obviously like Trez’s high intensity and pressure, which from what I’ve seen isn’t really natural to Traore. Early days though, he’s looked good in some appearances and a bit lost in others.

2.) 31 Oct 2020 13:55:38
Traoré is more than capable, and before Garcia arrived was excellent for Lyon. For some reason Garcia didn’t seem to be a fan and he was relegated to the bench for the bulk of last season.
For me, I agree with 81, he should get his chance and start the game. Trez was disappointing against Leeds, in that he gave very little assistance to Matty Cash who clearly needed it throughout the game.

3.) 31 Oct 2020 15:12:50
Guys agree with much of what's been said, however we have got to trust Deano and the other coaches judgement, they see them both in training and I think he will continue to start with trezz and swap after 60 minutes.

4.) 31 Oct 2020 22:10:57
For me Trez is ok, but running around like someone trying to score house points is not enough.
He can be very careless and clumsy, and produces very little for his efforts.
I would love to see the rolls reversed, and use Trez as back up.
Personally I think you would get more goals per season from Traore, when he has adjusted.

5.) 31 Oct 2020 22:25:53
Use Trez when we need to counter attack and use Traore when we need to break teams down would be my plan.

6.) 31 Oct 2020 23:12:58
Exactly rk.

7.) 01 Nov 2020 00:04:18
I would just say, whenever I watched Lyon a few seasons ago, Traoré was at his best when Lyon were on the counter attack. This was mainly because of his pace, something Trez lacks somewhat. We won’t know how Traoré best fits into the team until we start using him imo but hey what do I know.

8.) 01 Nov 2020 06:46:46
Pace, stamina and tenacity is all Trez really has right now but he is improving. Like Shaun Wright Phillips sometimes creating 10 average openings has more of a chance of leading to something than one good one.
I'd liken Traore's pace to Kodjia. His build means its there when he gets going but the initial burst is slightly lacking. Stamina would be my biggest concern for that sort of game due to the large number of long distance sprints involved.
Trez's defending is somewhat erratic but he puts himself about, Traore wouldn't abandon defending but he would also miss tracking a fair few runners.

9.) 01 Nov 2020 08:37:13
Here's a novelty for a change, if we're looking to progress, let teams worry about how we're going to play rather than us worry about them. Treat them with respect by all means but we have to have confidence in what we, as a team, can do. Without getting carried away, we need to have that swagger about us. That could be the difference between being an average team and a good one. It's high time we started acting like big boys again instead of just being grateful we're in such esteemed company. That's just my take on things 👍.

10.) 01 Nov 2020 10:42:34
Every team needs to adapt to the team in front of them, that stubbornness is what us costing City.
We tried playing our way with reckless abandon at the start of last season and it failed.
You can't play possession football against City just like you can't play up and under against Burnley.
We have a good mix of players who can do both now so we should use that to our advantage.

11.) 01 Nov 2020 11:09:00
I agree we need to adapt game by game, with better in game management which at times has let us down. The point I'm making is that if we have an identifiable way of playing the opposition will spend more time worrying about how to counter act us rather than the other way around. Admittedly it won't work all the time against the big boys but against your Southamptons, Burnley's etc of this league, they should be thinking "s###, it's Villa, how do we stop them? " That's called big time thinking something we haven't had since MON threw his toys out the pram and before that Big Fat Ron.
I acknowledge you have to walk before you run, but if we want to compete at the top table you have to have that mindset that you belong there. Maybe wishful thinking at this time in our resurgence but definitely the way we should be looking at things.
Like I say just my point of view as it would be nice not to be worrying when the likes of Crystal Palace rock up.



03 Oct 2020 20:47:05
Does anyone think Ross Barkley will start tomorrow night?

Villa 81

1.) 03 Oct 2020 22:32:32
If he’s fit he starts is my guess.

2.) 03 Oct 2020 23:08:53
Its a tough one 81, listening to Deano`s pre-match he is fit enough.
He will play that I have no doubt, if it was up to me I would play all our new signings from the off, show Liverpool our intent.

3.) 03 Oct 2020 23:24:09
No you can't drop connor or trez while we wining soon as we lose we have the excuse to but until then the players will say hang on we been wining.

4.) 04 Oct 2020 09:24:35
If Barkley is match fit he starts.

5.) 04 Oct 2020 10:00:33
Agree John, the whole you can’t change a winning team thing don’t sit right with me at all.
Hourihane has been both fantastic and infuriating in his time with us as has Trez, but they are villa players so I will always back them.

But we are playing the best team in the league by a mile today and we are unlikely to see much of the ball in the final third so we need players on the pitch with that extra bit of quality to maximise our opportunities with the ball.

Barkley is better than Trez and Hourihane by a considerable distance so he plays all day for me.
If he runs out of gas after 60/ 70 then so be it but why sign a player of his ability and only give him 20 mins against Liverpool when we could be 2-3 down if they click today.

6.) 04 Oct 2020 10:18:20
He goes in for Connor, Hourihane has a big impact off the bench so suits both.

7.) 04 Oct 2020 11:34:20
Barkley wouldn’t have signed unless he was guaranteed a regular start. It’s make-or-break for his career and he could have stayed at Chelski to warm a bench.

8.) 04 Oct 2020 12:50:46
Absolutely right MD wouldn't be surprised if there is something in his contract. If you listened to his interview he intimated that he came on the basis he could play in his preferred role, you can't blame the guy he's only here so he can convince Southgate for the euros. Like Tammy if he does well he will be back at Chelsea, if it doesn't work out mybee neither us or Chelsea will want him next season.

9.) 04 Oct 2020 18:51:24
Barkley is starting tonight.



25 Sep 2020 12:49:16
So if Samatta has gone, surely they must have someone lined up to come in.

Villa 81

1.) 25 Sep 2020 14:00:15
Well I did post that Samatta was off to Turkey on Wednesday, but was assured by AKAVilla that Samattas dad had told him that the lad was going nowhere. Anyway, I agree - we now need another striker. And don't call me Shirley 😂.

2.) 25 Sep 2020 16:36:10
Perhaps his dad is also his agent?

Would you let Nakamba go Dave? I like him, he’s always give it his all and I think he could develop into a realy good player, not sure I’d let him go! There’s definitely others I’d like to see go before him mate.

I don’t think so Dave, I do agree he could be a good addition in midfield! Unfortunately smith doesn’t like players playing out of there normal positions.

Isn’t arrons a right back? If mines isn’t a defender then where’s his best position? I can’t see him in midfield either but yeah I do agree he’s clumsy at times to be honest, zaha. what a bit he would be 💜.
