Aston Villa Splashing the Cash

They only really have about 12 players. After that,they’re relying on kids.
I am surprised we see this so differently. Personally I think our first 11 looks pretty strong (if we sign Luiz, Nakamba, Trezeguet etc. and that's a big if), but I think our squad depth is weak as piss. I can't for my life imagine Wolves have a worse squad than us, all though I know nothing about wolves. Just to clarify on that point the squad consists of players like Lansbury, Bananason, Bree, Taylor, Davis, Green etc. I think Davis is half decent, but the rest of them aren't even top tier championship material.

come on cridge where is this squad that is going to push the top 6 which is where you'll be if as you say it is far stronger than us and Wolves

stop being realistic, you'll confuse him!

Not seen him in ages, but from when we had Lansbury I actually think he's a player who may be more suited to the Prem than the Championship

and at least with him you don't need to name a sub keeper on the bench as he's that good in goal too

I just don't rate him. Though it must be said after we sign a couple of more midfielders Hourihane will be a rotation option and he is alright, and definately better than Bananason and Lansbury. And Konsa is probably an okey choice for rotation.

The likelihood is that most of Hause, Konsa, Hourihane, Elmo, Jota, Kodjia/replacement and Chester won’t be starting. That’s a pretty good back up group.

Bree needs to go. Davies and Green need to get out on loan. I’m happy for Lansbury to stay albeit as a last resort but I suspect that when we have concluded our business, both he and BB will be surplus.

Hause, Konsa, Steer/Nyland/Kalinic, Hourihane and Elmo are alright for a newly promoted team for backup, but there's a long way to go for a squad fighting for mid table PL football. Jota will be starting methinks, so I don't think that's a back-up.

Pretty obvious that squad that we are very thin in midfield and up front. But the window fortunately isn't over.

No I don’t - all clubs are different “sizes” anyway
All this “entitlement “ rubbish is just a bit of drama to add value to claims. We had it for the past 3 seasons with many tin pot Championship sides claimed we thought we had a divine right to the PL. 99% of Villa fans are realistic but one lunatic on Twitter posts nonsense and the bed wetting begins.

It doesnt look strong given that @Cridge has already discounted a lot of them as not good enough to be involved

In that case you should stop posting on twitter then. Its gives the proper supporters a bad name

will you have much money left to spend though? Or is the owner using the TV money as others have done as a guarantor for player fees
Yeah most people think we got around £ 30 million left to spend. Problem is that we absolutely NEED winger, DM and a striker, and ideally we need 2 DMC/CM's. According to reports we've agreed a fee now for Trezeguet now, so that's a winger sorted I guess.
