We're clearly after a new striker, for me Rhodes although prolific isn't an upgrade on Gestede .

Clearly the lad can score but not the way we play, not a crossing team .

Personally i would prefer Scott Hogan although the lure of premiership football with West Ham is more attractive than us

Failing that I would go for Nakhi Wells from Huddersfield. Quick and direct would be perfect for counter attacking style and would compliment Kodjia

Bang on Ken we need more pace up front and definitely not another donkey plodder! Gestede is never worth £6 million in a trillion years £4 mil tops . Rhodes possibly £6 mil tops. Problem is they all know Villa have cash so £6mil becomes £12 mil

Apparently wells is stalling on a new contract .

Huddersfield want 8 million for him

Wells would be great signing like a young gabby full of energy

We need more or a presence than Wells imo, Rhodes is a huge upgrade on gustede but I also don't think he's the answer, not quick enough to be considered a pacey striker and not big enough to be a target man, more of an all rounder. That being said he could turn out to be the answer and no matter what he will be 1000 times better than Gabby.

A strikers job is to score, Rhodes knows his job, file under Lineker, Kerry Dixon, Darren Bent etc.

get lansbury and this kid from Barnsley into the side and we will create a hell of a lot more and mccormack will look at different player. rohdes will do the same even gabby might get 2 by end of season it's all about creating chances which we have not been doing. simple as that.

Allyp I agree but maybe someone should tell that to Ross McCormack!

I know we're not playing the best style to suite him but even so he has been a very poor acquisition IMO

McCormack is probably a D- so far this season, maybe with more chances created he will come good, and a set position that he'll play in, and for gods sake back him, not get on his back.
