Dare say you've all seen it, but just in case you haven't-fee of 14m, rising to 15.5m agreed with Marseille for Sanson. Cracking business and welcome to the club 👍👏👏.


1.) 23 Jan 2021 12:55:22
He was named in their match day squad today but guess he won't feature now.
Good business.
Where does that leave Ramsey? Send him out on loan to Championship?
We've got 8 or 9 players ahead of him in now so can't see much point keeping him for rest of this season. Pity I rate the kid.

2.) 23 Jan 2021 13:11:20
Well played Lange and/ or whoever was behind the negotiations for this. We’ve seen what reckless spending can do first hand, not only under Xia but in the MON era, where by the owner had serious funds which were wasted with players on 70k a week on the bench. Thus contributing to the owners change of stance.

We are only just undoing the mess done by previous regimes with regards to transfer fees and wages, the safety of this club has to be paramount from here on our. So whomever managed to save us between 2 and 4 million, just by being patient and tactful, well done and thank you.

I understand fans want everything done two days ago so to speak, but we have to learn from the not so recent past, otherwise we are doomed to repeat history over and over.

3.) 23 Jan 2021 14:41:36
Leaves Ramsey in the same position, Sanson takes Hourihanes position. I expect Ramsey will start today.

4.) 23 Jan 2021 14:43:22
Sorry Johnny just read your comment fully, who are these nine players ahead of Ramsey?

McGinn, Dougie, Sanson, Barkley, after that it’s a toss up of Nakamba or Ramsey. When you consider there’s 3 of those starting, being 6th on the list at worst is perfect for his development.

5.) 23 Jan 2021 15:32:56
Great news, great price, looks like a great addition, what a great addition to our staff Lange is, coupled with shakephere our club done really well in terms of staff and of coarse players in, loving this season and the new lease of life within our club, well played to all involved, vtid 💪💪.

6.) 23 Jan 2021 15:56:20
Just reading an article about his transfer and it mentioned that we may have further dealings with Marseille in this window, looking through their squad there are a couple I wouldn’t mind having, I seen Leeds banter suggesting amavi is available, he would be a great addition instead of Taylor to compete with targett, see payet there also but if memory serves me right didn’t he have a bad attitude towards the end of his West Ham days, might just be usual news now BS but it wouldn’t surprise me as there is value to be had in France right now, AVB will be annoyed at the fee after embarrassing himself moaning about the first bid.

7.) 23 Jan 2021 16:23:10
Chris, we’ve got 9 midfield/ attacking midfield options. Luisa, McGinn, Nakamba, Barkley, Grealish, Trezeguet, Traore, El Ghazi plus Sanson.
Granted they can’t/ don’t all play in the same position but I doubt you would pick Ramsey ahead of any of them would you?
Ramsey isn’t quite in the same position. Hourihane would be behind Sanson if he’d stayed and you could then argue picking Ramsey ahead of Hourihane but maybe not ahead of Sanson. He won’t be competing for Luiz, Nakamba or McGinn position either. He certainly won’t get in ahead of the attacking options of Grealish, Barkley, Traore, ElGhazi and Trezeguet.
I like the kid but if he could get a decent loan move and game time should it be considered?
It was a question rather than a ‘must happen’.

8.) 23 Jan 2021 16:52:44
Ramsey is a centre mid mate, he’s in competition with Barkley, McGinn, Dougie, Sanson and Nakamba.

Out of them, on current usage he’s most likely fifth in that ranking. And considering 3 of them are going to start, he’s second choice sub behind Sanson, as he’s had significantly more play time recently than Nakamba. Best place for him to learn at the minute is here IMO, but I can see a decent Lon move to an attacking side where he is definitely going to start, would work well.

However trinity, I can promise you, El Ghazi, Trez or Traore won’t be playing centre mid for us anytime soon😂.

9.) 23 Jan 2021 17:12:27
Agree Chris, Ramsey usually comes on in place of Barkley or a winger, where of coarse jack moves out wide and Ramsey plays central, bookings are building up we will need him imo, like today he will probably start instead of maginn, if Barkley picks up another injury then we would be starting either sanson or Ramsey in his place leaving him and marvellous our only center midfield subs.

10.) 23 Jan 2021 17:18:17
Those 9 players you mention Trinity will be competing for 5 places in the team. That would leave 4 over then, let’s say Nakamba, Trezeguet, El Ghazi and Ramsey. There would definitely be room for all 4 of them to be on a bench of 9 along with say Heaton, Elmo, Hause, Guilbert and say Davis for example. Nakamba is the obvious DM cover, and so I think Ramsey would be more than capable of challenging Trez or El Ghazi for covering the 4 more attacking positions in the team. He has already shown that he is ready for the step up to the Premier League and Deano has said as much over the last few days.
I don’t think 4 players covering 5 positions is excessive and there are always going to be injuries, suspensions, fatigue and loss of form, so I think Ramsey will still get adequate opportunities despite the arrival of Sanson.
I apologize if it was Chris who you wanted to answer your post.

11.) 23 Jan 2021 18:31:01
Not at all Frenchy. I take the point.
As I say, I like the kid but how much game time is he going to get with us this year?
I honestly don’ think he’ll be on the bench ahead of any 2 of Trezeguet or Traore or ElGhazi or Barkley,
Keeping him is fine with me. As previously mentioned, it was a question?
Assume of the 5 positions we have Grealish, Barkley, El Ghazi, McGinn and Luiz starting that leaves 3 places on bench for cam/ am, Sanson, Trezeguet, Traore and Nakamba?
Assume all fit, where does Ramsey fit into that mix?

12.) 23 Jan 2021 18:40:24
Ramsey is comfortably ahead of Nakamba in the pecking order at the moment. Ideally you want two players for every position, with that we need 3 back up central midfielders, or 2 and one number 10. Ramsey can play both. Ramsey will see some game time tonight, won’t surprise me if he starts.

The wingers shouldn’t come into question when discussions Ramsey, whilst he probably can play out wide, I think he did for Doncaster on occasion, he is central for us, and Trez, El Ghazi and Traore are the designated wide men.

13.) 23 Jan 2021 18:57:24
I think Ramsey is good enough to compete against any of the options on the bench in that scenario. He’s a young player who’s improving all the time and could very easily go up in the pecking order.
Admittedly there would in fact be 10 players competing for 5 places but I think it will be on rare occasions that all of them will be available. I would be surprised if there are many match days where Ramsey doesn’t feature at the very least on the bench.
I wonder how Ramsey would feel about it, if given the choice to fight for a first team place or to be loaned out to Championship side, If it was me I’d want to stay.

14.) 23 Jan 2021 19:13:58
Well Chris, he’s on the bench tonight I’m pleased to say but behind Nakamba who starts in place of suspended McGinn. When you have Sanson coming in it suddenly looks a bit busy in there doesn’t it.

15.) 23 Jan 2021 19:22:52
I really can’t see your worries trinity, in our last 8 league games he’s started one and been sub in 7 and came off the bench in 6 of those 7. He has a lot more minutes than Nakamba this season, the addition of Sanson makes things more competitive but going off the facts it only makes Nakambas position more vulnerable, not Ramsey’s.

16.) 24 Jan 2021 01:06:04
Agreed Chris, I don't understand how people think Ramsey is competing with Trezeguet, Traore etc for a starting place. It's like some people's understanding of football is based purely on Darren Bent's punditry.

17.) 24 Jan 2021 11:21:53
Its not that at all DB, the fact of the matter is, we don`t all see things the same, therefore ideas differ.
Nowt wrong with that mate.

18.) 24 Jan 2021 12:31:48
Wait a minute Dave, I’ve just realized with initials like that, this could be the Guvnor himself, although I didn’t know he had a middle name. If that’s the case then, maybe we should all bow down to his superior knowledge 😁.

19.) 25 Jan 2021 12:32:40
Absolutely no problem with differing ideas Villadave, but my comment was specifically about the suggestion that Ramsey was competing with the likes of Trezeguet and Traore for a starting place. That's not an 'idea', that's just inaccurate.
Anyway, nowt wrong with that either way as you rightly say!

20.) 25 Jan 2021 17:07:59
Consider this scenario, we need an attacking midfielder and our main men are injured, suspended or whatever and Deano was therefore left with a choice of Trez, El Ghazi, Traoré all of who have had experience of playing in that position at some point, or playing Ramsey. Is that not an example of where Ramsey could be competing with those players for a place in the team.

21.) 26 Jan 2021 11:40:50
Hi Mark, I'm not quite sure what your example is trying to suggest there? When you say attacking midfielder, I'm assuming you mean either the no.10 role or possibly no.8, and aren't talking about playing on the wing?
I can say with some confidence that Smith isn't going to pick any of our wide players ahead of Ramsey in a central position. How many times has he picked any of the players you mention centrally when he's had the option of Ramsey? None as far as I remember, which to me would indicate Smith doesn't see them competing for the same position. Yes there could always be an unusual scenario which changes things - if all our keeper got injured then Hause and Engels would be competing for the goalkeeper position. My point is just than given a usual match day, Ramsey is not competing with the wingers mentioned previously which is where all this started. If you or others see it differently, fair play to you. I just don't understand how you would come to that conclusion on the evidence of this season.
Good conversation though and nice to be talking about this stuff rather than who should be sacked and the club being a shambles eh!

22.) 26 Jan 2021 12:22:00
I hope you’re not putting me in the category of posters described in your last paragraph DBS. Since we’ve had NSWE as owners, I’ve only ever been positive for the future of our club.
Regarding Ramsey, I accept that it’s highly unlikely we’ll ever see Ramsey playing out on the wings, but he is only 19, and therefore I think it’s far too early to say definitively where is best position will be. He is a very talented lad, and may well be capable of playing in more roles than we’ve seen up to now.

23.) 26 Jan 2021 12:47:14
Calm down Mark, I'm not putting you in any category and was just making a positive point, that its nice for us as Villa fans to have this sort of conversation as things are going well with the club rather than the usual debate about where it's all going wrong.
I haven't tried to make any point other than some of the comments on here suggesting that Ramsey will be competing with our wingers for a starting place seem strange.



17 Jan 2021 17:40:17
If photos doing the rounds are genuine, Morgan Sanson could be a done deal 🤞.


1.) 18 Jan 2021 18:30:46
Haven’t seen them mate, do tell?

2.) 18 Jan 2021 18:45:30
Apparently its been photoshopped Whack, his head, Barkley's body 😳.

3.) 18 Jan 2021 21:58:52
Kids are very quick with these things, saw one on Lingard in the changing room at Villa park the other day, looked almost perfect.

4.) 19 Jan 2021 00:28:15
Barkleys head on sansons body would be a decent transfer lol might spend less time out injured😂😂.



04 Oct 2020 09:19:05
Possible cheap option left back cover-Barry Douglas leeds. Liked him when he was at wolves and was gutted when he went to Leeds for about 5 million, think at the time we missed a trick. Met him in the post office in sedgley. Apparently he's available too, surely an upgrade on Taylor 🤔.


1.) 04 Oct 2020 10:15:32
Definite upgrade on Taylor, but he starts for Leeds so can't see how he’d be available.

2.) 04 Oct 2020 11:07:04
I don’t think Douglas has been in any of Leeds premiership squads to date.

3.) 04 Oct 2020 11:36:48
Read it somewhere Chris and Dallas started ahead of him yesterday.

4.) 04 Oct 2020 12:00:41
According to the Mail, Watford are in advanced talks to sign Douglas.

5.) 04 Oct 2020 13:09:34
Good shout Moose, Mark we could still intervene and make an offer surely.

6.) 04 Oct 2020 13:23:44
It would certainly be worth asking the question, surely we've got to be a better option than Watford. Apparently he was quite settled in sedgley and was a bit shocked to be sold.

7.) 04 Oct 2020 13:28:06
I hate to say this but Wolves are getting an absolute cracker in Ait Nouri from Angers. On loan for the season with the option to buy. Why couldn’t we have got him on the same terms?
I’ve been really pleased with our dealings in this window but considering how weak we are in the left back position, I do feel that a great opportunity has been missed here.

8.) 04 Oct 2020 13:44:08
Don’t ask me why, I was thinking of Dallas when it clearly says Douglas😂.

9.) 04 Oct 2020 15:45:48
Speaking of Dallas, Sue Ellen shot JR 😳😁.

Well done Sheffield United 👏 👏👏 and as Forrest Gump famously said "and that's all I have to say about that ".




23 Feb 2021 19:41:02
Hey TOV can you get 11 pairs of your special boots with the nails in ready for the Villa Saturday? As Leeds pitch is awful.


1.) 23 Feb 2021 21:07:05
Hi Moose.
They might have some in the AV museum. Getting rare these days. can't find em on ebay either.

I think the pitch is a minor irritation.
If Jack is not playing we will be bereft of ideas.
There is no one to take over. We are relying on Jack to perform but when he has an off day or is injured we struggle.
Someone posted on the site that "one man doesn't make a team, " but that's wrong.
Jack makes AVFC tick.
I am very cautious about us at the moment, looking fragile, a bit like last season. Lots of effort but little imagination and every now and then we get overrun. We are naive!
Martinez is saving us time and again.
He was a steal from Arsenal.

2.) 24 Feb 2021 09:23:45
I hope TOV that we don’t get into the Crystal Palace mindset ie that when Zaha doesn’t play we lose, I do think we need to invest in at least one more creative player to take some of the burden off Jack, I had hoped Barkley might be the answer but it’s looking likely that’s not the case.

3.) 24 Feb 2021 10:14:51
Sabitzer of RB Leipzig has caught the eye every time I see them play but think he'd be in high demand if they ever decide to sell. And as Markdavfrance has pointed out Draxler is a free agent in the summer but ditto for him as well.

4.) 24 Feb 2021 12:42:58
Good shout with Sabitzer Moose, I think Draxler will be looking at European clubs only to be honest, so can’t see us having a hope.

I’d love Minamino from Liverpool but think the way they did with Ings, southampton have set the ground work for a summer move.

{Ed001's Note - difference with Ings was that he is from the Southampton area and wanted to go home to be near family. I don't think that going to Southampton will move Minamino noticeably nearer to his home!} Become a Patron!

5.) 24 Feb 2021 12:52:17
Haha no definitely not Ed😂 I think Ings is a boyhood saints fan aswell.

I just think Minamino being there already on loan, if it comes to us vs southampton, as long as neither has Europe to sway it, I think he’d choose what he’s familiar with.

{Ed001's Note - yes he was very much a Saints fan. I would have agreed with you, but Saints' current form would suggest strongly it would be best to go somewhere else of a player of his quality. I am still hoping he will make it at Liverpool personally.}

6.) 24 Feb 2021 14:15:22
He’s a brilliant player, I just don’t think he’s got enough to force his way in to your starting 11, and isn’t happy having a role similar to Shaqiri.



22 Feb 2021 13:37:42
Been thinking would it be worth trying a diamond in midfield? Sanson and McGinn in front of Luiz with Ramsey as the tip? Then play Watkins and Traore as a 2 with the option of drifting wide creating space for the midfield runners?
This would mean only a slight tweak to personnel and positions and would definitely give us more impetus in midfield which we'll need against Leeds. Nakamba obviously waiting in the wings if Luiz is off his game with an earlier than the usual 65-70 minute substitution.


1.) 22 Feb 2021 13:59:44
Definitely Moose, our Midfield has been stagnant for several games now and needs changing. Your suggestion would give us a lot more energy and something different for Mr. Bielsa to think about.

2.) 22 Feb 2021 14:19:11
Moose, like the idea, whether it would work or not, would only be known if it is tried. This is the whole point of the vast majority of recent posts. It would be really sad if Deano's popularity and respect is eroded because he is too stubborn to make the changes that to most of us are so obvious. Just because we had made so much progress should not mean that we should accept the good without commenting and criticising on the not so good. I have said it in the past, fans voices and certainly those when they are in the majority are definitely listened to. The owners, and rightly so will and should back Deano, however if it should come to the point where there is a lot of discontent amongst genuine fans, the owners will be listening. Hopefully this will not happen but these people haven't got where they are by making easy choices, success is built on making the right descions not making popular decisions. I think Deano should reflect on this.

As a footnote I just wonder if our sporting director made the Sansom purchase without Deano's full support, this could explain his reluctance to start him, most of us will have seen enough in his cameo performances that he should have already been given 90 minutes to at least show what he can do and certainly when so many players are off form. Deano is not helping himself with his current decisions.

3.) 22 Feb 2021 14:42:34
Re Sanson I believe we brought him 6 months early due to the great deal we got so was probably not in this season's plans. Therefore it may be just a case of finding a place for him but with recent midfield performances that shouldn't be far off. Also unlike recent purchases (1st season back) we have time to fully integrate him instead of throwing him in at the deep end. On top of this you also have Deano's loyalty to his current incumbents.

4.) 22 Feb 2021 14:44:27
On paper that sounds well worth a try. Width is usually the biggest issue with a diamond, but as Watkins has played as a winger for most his career, and Traore is a winger, neither should have a problem drifting into the wider areas and letting the other one stay central.

Should also solve our midfield worries, because with at least 3 in there at some point we have to become harder to pass straight through for god sake!

Good point Scott around Sanson potentially not being a Smith signing, would explain a lot. Although I would suggest surely some self awareness has to come in here when you talk about changes that “to most of us are obvious”, remember we are giving our opinion away for free online and he’s getting paid millions of pounds for his, there’s a reason for that. I’m not saying his right, but when he’s not changing things week after week and we can all see it hasn’t been good enough by any stretch, surely you have to think that a manager who has worked his way up the leagues, never been sacked, went from strength to strength and worked minor miracles with us, must have at least some reason other than just stubbornness, for keeping the side the same despite performances, after watching them day in day out in training, and knowing the players personally - something we don’t have the luxury of.

I agree with you, in my opinion, things need changing, and for me, Ramsey should be starting at the weekend in place of Barkley, and potentially Nakamba in place of Mcginn. But I don’t have all the benefits in building that decision that Smith does. In the championship and last season, Smith changed personnel as and when needed, which worked to his advantage, this season he hasn’t, which suggests to me something else is at play here.

5.) 22 Feb 2021 17:13:06
As well as considering the midfield if Cash isn’t fit I worry that Harrison will do the same to Elmo that Barnes did, I am afraid Elmo hasn’t got it at premiership level anymore.

6.) 22 Feb 2021 19:29:15
Elmo will be under serious pressure against Leeds, Matty was bombarded down that side in the first game, I’m not sure if a diamond will work with Leeds I think we need more width to be honest, if jack is not fit this would be my line up.

Elmo konsa mings target
Trez luiz Ramsey traore

7.) 22 Feb 2021 20:03:10
The idea behind the diamond Whack is that McGinn would cover the left side and Sanson the right when defending essentially making it a midfield 3 with Ramsey filling in where needed also either Watkins or Traore could drop back basically flooding the midfield or both press high and try to cut off the out ball from the back.

8.) 22 Feb 2021 20:30:28
I would go with Kaine Kessler even if he gets skinned by Harrison it would be no different if Elmo played the advantage that gives us is that we blood a youngster and gives us an early view as to whether Kessler has the ability to step up.

9.) 23 Feb 2021 09:31:44
Suggested this for the Leicester game. I doubt Deano will change anything mate.

10.) 22 Feb 2021 23:57:26
Then Doug is in there on his own and we are getting overrun at the moment with 2 guys in there, I see what your saying though, in theory it might work, it’s the press that will make the difference cause at the min we have none we just let them have time and space, I hope I’m wrong but I expect nothing more than our guys to defend most of the match, standing off inviting pressure, have less than 40% possession, have a handful of shots and get beat by 2 or more goals, I think marcello will skin Deano tactically, dean will make some changes midway through the second half changing like for like and expect it to change the run of the game, everyone can feel free to slate me after the game if I’m wrong but I’ve seen nothing in the last month to make me think we will compete against Leeds, thankfully we have some easier games after that and hopefully we can pick up a few wins.

11.) 23 Feb 2021 09:53:35

I hope I live to regret everything I wrote but am genuinely worried after recent performances.



18 Feb 2021 18:32:55
Watching the Leicester game hoping for a few injuries 🤞been thinking about Sunday's game and would it be an idea, with Cash out, to play Hayden right back with Elmo in front or would we go Elmo and Trez? It might be a good idea to play a 4-5-1 with Leicester being in good form and ours being sketchy, I'd go
Hayden Konsa Mings Targett
Elmo Luiz Nakamba Sanson Grealish


1.) 18 Feb 2021 21:53:20
Rather play we 10 than have el mahammed at RB he will be targeted for sure shame to see cash out.

2.) 18 Feb 2021 22:33:07

3.) 19 Feb 2021 06:17:15
Unsure if that's for my suggested team or the 10 man comment Chris? 🤔😁.

4.) 19 Feb 2021 08:42:03
I think you can make an educated guess moosey boy😉😂

I like the team you’ve put out, I probably wouldn’t drop Luiz and McGinn, just to try and keep some continuity, so drop one of them, keep the other.

With Hause and Cash injured, if we were ever going to see a young defender on the bench, now is the time. So even if not starting, I’d love to see Hayden on the bench. I probably wouldn’t go for a starting spot for him, just because it really is right in the deep end putting him in against Leicester right now. But off the bench last 20/ 30 minutes, would be brilliant experience.

5.) 19 Feb 2021 12:02:41
Hayden was comfortable when up against Sadio Mane in the cup game, and he has the pace that Elmo lacks. Leicester have pacy players and I think Elmo will struggle, particularly against Barnes. I would have no qualms about putting Hayden in but I would be very surprised if Deano plays him.
I think Sanson and Nakamba would give our midfield more solidity and energy. Sanson loves to run at defenses with the ball and I think this would open things up for Jack a lot more. People say he’s been negated in recent games but I think it’s been more a case of lack of movement around him. Sanson’s work rate and energy would be a stark contrast to Barkley’s recent pedestrian type showings.

6.) 19 Feb 2021 15:05:56
I have to agree Mark, the only difference is that I would start with Elmo and see how he fare`s against Barnes.
If speed is a problem for Elmo, get him off and give Hayden his chance, even if its only to track and distract Barnes.
Sanson would be a must for me, and I would start Nakamba as well.
Sanson has far more energy, drive and physicality than Barkley, and we will need that against a very quick Leicester side.

7.) 19 Feb 2021 15:32:00
I know the U23’s did us proud against Liverpool but I think with time the performance has got better than it was. Hayden did ok against Mane, at times, but that’s about it. Elmo did us well at times last season, deserves his chance.

8.) 19 Feb 2021 15:56:27
Elmo’s contract is up in June, can anybody see it being extended? If not then perhaps Guilbert will come back as back up/ competition for Matty, next season. If Fred doesn’t return, we could splash out for another right back or we could have a good look at Hayden and potentially save ourselves money. This is a golden chance to do just that, the kid did well last time out, give him another chance to prove he can do it again and let’s start looking towards the future.

9.) 19 Feb 2021 16:08:06
The main difference this season is that any youth member promoted into the 1st team is coming into a very settled side, take Ramsey against wolves. I expect Hayden to at least be on the bench but wouldn't be against him starting as he's clearly got the pace to cope with the in form Barnes, something that Elmo may probably struggle with- hence my suggestion of doubling up down the right- very similar to West Ham with Coufal and Fredericks. Elmo's experience and Hayden's youthful exuberance may just negate Barnes's threat 🤔🤞.

Sky stream cut straight to the boxing last night after the game so missed the post match interviews. I have now seen the Martinez interview and that bloke is a winner with a winning mentality. Definitely captain material. Not saying take it off Jack just that he has the right attitude, MOTM performance but more disappointed with the 2 points lost. Nice to see an attitude where 2nd best just doesn't cut it. 👍.

Did you watch the boxing moose?

Watched a bit Chris but my stream kept cutting off so didn't really catch the big one.

Was a good fight tbh mate, had to mute the commentary, spent most the rounds looking for excuses for Warrington instead of praising the 22 year old under dog who was giving him a pasting.

Saw the interview for the fight before when Eddie Hearn was berating the judges, must of been supplied by the FA VAR committee 😁.

Yea they are probably on par with one another at the minute😂.

Thanks for the edit Ed's 😁👍.

{Ed007's Note - 👍

2 questions about this rumour
1 can he do the skirting boards in the players lounge? (sorry wrong kind of sander😳)
2 is he any relation to the bloke who sang "Lady in red"?
Seriously though, decent player and physical presence 👍.

Sign his best mate to keep your best player happy, makes sense but not for the right reasons.

Apparently its been photoshopped Whack, his head, Barkley's body 😳.

They may be going to non league teams, but its vital experience of playing regular "Mens" football and will only help their development. And it never did the likes of Vardy, Smalling and our very own Ian Taylor any harm, so let's keep our fingers crossed. As one of Eddie Murphy's characters in Coming to America once sang " I believe the children are our future " 😁👍.

Don't underestimate them Whack, they may be bottom but whenever I've seen them they've always given a good account of themselves, just can't score. I'd rather us be pragmatic and grind out a victory than be dismissive of their threat, go gung ho and regret it. Same XI for me, possibly Sanson for Mcginn, give him a rest.

Its nice that he's appreciated outside of the Villa circle Ed as we can obviously be a shade biased 😁 but I've a feeling he'll just keep getting better, hopefully we'll be successful and finally be able to keep our best players and really push on 🤞.


{Ed001's Note - he is very good. It is only inexperience that stopped him being higher in the list.} Become a Patron!

Yes Ed I've found it strange that with centre halves available, admittedly not exactly 1st choice, he's played him and Fabinho out of position, but yes, Henderson has impressed. As for Konsa, it won't be long before he's offered an improved contract 🤞.


{Ed001's Note - it is about communication. Though after seeing Rhys Williams play, I would have picked my mother over him, let alone Henderson! Konsa fully deserves a lengthy deal, at least then someone has to pay through the nose if you do lose him. Centre-backs of his quality are few and far between these days.} Become a Patron!

How about Jordan Henderson? 🤔😂😂😂.


{Ed001's Note - you know what, he was surprisingly good in defence, but he is still midfielder playing out of position and it showed at times. It does show how bad things got that he was at the back.} Become a Patron!

From a purely English point of view Craig Dawson, tho not everyone's cup of tea, has been in excellent form for Wet Spam this season but obviously won't be going to the Euros.


{Ed001's Note - very good point Moose. He is a very good defender, but he took a while to break into their team. Since being in there he has looked excellent. I actually forgot about him when I was writing this! There is always one or two that I forget with these lists.} Become a Patron!
