After dean's interview, seems no big money to be spent on a striker? -if that's so then that leaves either a mature striker, a striker in dispute with his current club or a striker that his club doesn't want around, if we go foreign then you can expect a time of them adjusting to the league, so for me (if no big money available? ), then it's got to be a mature striker, whose's seen it, done it, who knows their no going to be starting each week, so putting aside the past clubs he has played for, I'd take a punt on Stephen Fletcher whose having a good season, and a player whose creative and can score a few goals as well as play a bit canny, I'd also take a punt on Adam Reach, he can change a game and is a clever player, and I think Fletcher is in the mold of Astley Barnes, again a clever player who seems to have rediscovered his mojo again, just a thought boys.

That would be funny. Spend £130million and have Stephen Fletcher as striker.

Does anyone know why we haven't tried wesley and kodja together . Think wesley could be better if had another striker with him. Leicesters two strikers looked liked scoring everytime they had an attack . Its to hard in prem as lone striker.

So, there's a little rumour going around the corridors that the gaffer is looking to convert trezeguet into a striker, might just be the stroke of genius we've been looking for!

Which would officially leave us with 1 recognised out and out winger in El Ghazi and then Jack.
I can only imagine they are expecting wide players to be cheaper and more available than decent strikers.
But surely El Ghazi is closer to being able to play that role already so would make sense him converting? (Would also help him with not having to defend)

I think El Ghazi could do a job there, he was called the ‘new Suarez’ at Ajax as a kid

His build is more suited to it imo. Fairly tall so can compete for headers, decent body strength but also has pace and knows where the net is.
Not a standout in any department but good enough all around to do a job there.

Can't believe I forgot Jota, I actually feel bad about that.

Iam delight to say DEAN SMITH has signed a 4 YEAR DEAL! UTV.

So this might be rather controversial.

I genuinely like Wesley as a player, he's growing more into the premier league but I feel as if the pressure put on him by being our top signing and sole striker has dampened his impact. He has had games where he has been barely noticeable, I can concede that but he been putting a good shift in on and off the ball.

We need him scoring though, because as much as I like him without goals a striker is nothing. I do think we need another striker to compete with him, as much as I like Davis I don't yet see Premier League quality and should have gone out on loan.
I think with Targett in the team, Wesley will get goals, I just think he needs time that we don't have, and bringing in another striker to push him would be great.

Let's hope we get rid of Kodjia and bring in another striker, who doesn't ostracise Wesley; the last thing we want is him to feel like we gave him half a season and gave up. I trust in Smith in what he saw, and that he will get the best out of him

Hi alex, where ya bin mate, hope all is well.
I have been posting about Wesley, the problem I have with him is that he does not seem to like the physicality of the prem, and spends too much time complaining, he either sticks his chest out and confronts the player, or starts waving his arms about as a display to the ref.
He missed a sitter on Monday, and because he did not score he stood there raising his arms again as some sort of protest, the fact is the ball was still in play, he should of been aware of that.
He needs to man up a bit, and show his team mates that he is the target man we are craving.
Having said all that, he is used to playing with someone up front with him.
I have no doubts a striker is our main priority come January.

I think he desperately needs a striker coach, someone who can try and give him them natural strikers instincts. We’ve seen it turn poor strikers into decent ones in the past.

Chris, Dion always seems to be at the club, when not on Homes under the hammer . He could give him a few tips, or see if Heskey is interested .

Massive game tomz let's roar our lions home to victory. Bowen and benteke would do me in january maybe another lbk aswel because targett an taylor havnt been great to be honest. We need to buy prem expierence we have thrown so many games away due to silly errors and not been able to see the games out! Belive it or not I want the best for this club and I really think we should be setting our sights higher when buying players! If not Benteke then Mitovic from Fulham can't understand why we didn't buy him proven in both leagues.

Wesley will never make it unless he changes his attuide he need to get in the right places and do the right things before he throws his arms in the air. Anyway my prediction tomz Aston Villa 2. Newcastle 1. And Iam sorry but I always have Bruce so won't clap him at all when he scored that goal 4 Utd in the 112 min that cost us the league. And he is a mad blue nose he played for them was captin for them and managed them hate the bloke!

Newspapers report Aston Villa willing to sell Super John Mcginn for 50 million. If that's true then we would need to buy 2 top players with the money. Its obvious to everybody Mcginn an grelish are to good for Villa and should be in a Champions League team rather than fighting relegation.

That should make your day then, you seem to think he and Grealish are too good for us, and the rest of the team ain`t good enough.
Wonderful.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Nov 2019 21:51:25
Well that's bang on take them out of our team an the rest is crap. If we want to keep our best players stop money balling and buy good players keep hearing how rich these owners are then why do we have this crap team bar these 2 that lose almost everyweek? Your in the prem you are a massive club with a huge fan base buy top players. Oh an it can be done look at chelsea an man city they was crap then the new owners came it an brought top top players!

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Nov 2019 14:21:03
We used a money ball method 4 years ago, under a different manager, different board and different owner, we haven’t used it since, keep up walkies.

Worth pointing out aswell that out of the 6 players that were signed using the stats based plan, 2 play in the champions league for top clubs, 1 plays Europa and one is a premier league regular having a brilliant season.

But we need to stay up now chris. Facts are we brought young players with potenial so we can sell them on an the club can run itself which is fine the aims to improve players an sell for big money. that's money balling chris our owners even done a youtube video saying they was going to do it an its good if done right. We need good players now man city owners an chelsea owner didn't do this they were loaded an proved it by buying top players srraight away not like fulham b4 you start iam on about big players.

{Ed001's Note - that is nothing to do with 'Moneyball'. You are using the term completely incorrectly. Brentford are an example of an attempt to use 'Moneyball' in football, and it is nothing to do with selling on players, that is a side effect.}

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Nov 2019 18:36:26
I think your miss understanding the “moneyball” system to start with and our transfer strategy. Watch the film, (named handily ‘moneyball’) it has nothing to do with the sale of players. We had a clear transfer strategy in the summer, and that was nothing to do with the sale of player, seen in ya not selling Grealish. We brought young players hoping they will develop together at the same time over a number of seasons. Look at Bournemouth first team, some of them have been there since the championship, with good coaching and cohesion look at what they have become.

{Ed001's Note - exactly chris, Moneyball is nothing to do with selling, it is all about using stats to find undervalued players. Glad to see someone else understands it.}

Giroud would be a great signing in Jan if we could get him he'd quality player, also wingers needed and lb, rb, cdm, and a poacher striker, sum1 like marriot from derby would be good, we need good English players instead of crappy foreigners we signed loads of players but they haven't got the quality apart from Engles, an marvellous the rest has been wasted, look at sheff United signed all British players and there doing great with a good manager who knows what he'd doing , our next 5 games are tricky can't see us taking many points out of them games I'd take 4 points b4 Xmas fixtures which are quite good on paper, if we can stay 4/ 5from bottom by end of Xmas then sign sum players il be happy, but if we're in bottom 3 by 1st of Jan I'd sack deano.

4eva, are you some sort of semi professional agitator.
Your comments and the timing of your comments are that of a petulant child.
Everything you have said has been said before, and to be honest is now typical of some Villa fans.
I hate to say it but where I drink, and the Villa folk I mix with, you my friend would not be welcome.

Dave do you think I care 'i don't know u so it's a stupid comment and to be honest it's perfectic we all have different views if u don't like it who cares people on here do my head in they think there better than others just because they don't agree on stuff geezers on here have thrown there dummies out and gone bye byes like school kids because they can't get there own way ;not everyone going to agree, where I drink with my villa they want deano gone and there's about 10 of us aswell, people need to wake up on here, if people don't like the post people put on don't read em don't moan an whinge and cry about it.

Villa4eva-you want to watch yourself mate, spouting that stuff about being unhappy about the manager and how the team are playing, that's outrageous mate! -you crack on mate, there's too many on here who are like sheep following the herd fella, and as for not being accepted in the company of some villa supporters on here because of your views, I agree mate, they can go whistle dixie, this site is all about differing views, unless of course you upset the chosen few!

Im told by a person who lives by bodymoor heath that Jack grealish has still not trained with the squad as of now.
Could he have a longer time out like last year.
I hope not for our sakes.

Everyone seems to agree we need a striker that offers something different to Wes, for options. Quick, get in behind type, Vardyesque. Not he'd have to keep doing it from now until Jan but, Hepburn Murphys Hat-trick for Tranmere was sublime, he showed a bit of everything and the second finish was brilliant for a young lad.

If we can't find what we want and he's still in good form, I'd love to see him given a go.

Me too chris, that`s what our academy is for.
He is not a one trick pony, and offers variety, good shout.

Does any1 really think we will beat liverpool come on there top of the league and flying i think we need to realistic, if they play to 70 percent of there ability they will win and that's not me being a doomer talking sense there 11 is a million miles better than ours like i said if they play the kids we might have a chance, cups rnt important anyway leagues far more important i'd rather stay in the league than win cup and go dwn.
