    Didn't you sell him because he ate too many pies one summer?

    We didn't sell him, didn't renew his cheap ass contract. I think there were concerns about his training which may have been spun that way but I suspect the real answer was he wasn't enough of a lump for Mick.

    He played so few games for our first team that it wasn't really possible to make much of an appraisal (2 sub appearances) but went on loan a lot and was ALWAYS finding the net, as he did throughout his youth career, that it seems like perhaps we should have speculated for anorher year or two at probably only a few hundred quid a week.

    Ah well. Hindsight is a lovely thing. Keane did the same sort of thing to Jordan Rhodes, and now he's on loan at those arseholes up the road, doesn't take a genius to write the plot for the derby next month

    Bookies made them favourites . They do look poor.

    Bookies just play odds depending on where the money goes. Someone probably put a lot of money on Stoke to win.

    Awful. Said last season we've got a whiff of the Sunderland about us. We're absolutely rank.

    How's the game been? Same turgid shit from Villa? Bring on Andre Green.

    It was alright. 3-1 flattered them a bit, Hull just ran out of steam at the end.

    We appear to be in the middle of a gigantic playing staff refresh, kinda the thing you want to get done in the summer but exciting all the same. Saturday's team was incredibly patchwork, but it seems this transfer window is like one of those sliding puzzles with a missing piece, every deal is waiting for a prior one.

    Maybe that's what it's always like. I can't recall the days of ACTUALLY PAYING TRANSFER FEES

    @Jono62 Villa were very good in patches but it was an even game for the most part. Villa were a bit more clinical. Fantastic goal by Hutton, well worth searching out.

    Pretty good stuff considering the turmoil Villa has been in.

    Edit. Green looked good when he came on.

    Yeah, a little. Understandable though. Especially as it seems like the club are to some degree leaving it up to him, or so they have intimated.

    Wolves have signed Adama Traore. Exciting player. Can beat people for fun, but goes to crap anywhere near the penalty box.

    and it looks like we (Villa) are going to buy a Hibs midfielder.

    He's quite highly rated up here as one to watch for the future. Please don't break him.

    It'll certainly weaken Hibs & we'll happily take him if you Villa fans don't want him! 😃

    @Vortex808 Hopefully Bruce won't but I doubt it.

    So only one first team striker and two defenders from last season's squad remain, and we didn't recruit in replacement numbers. And we signed lots more midfielders when we already had loads.

    I'm sure Hurst knows what he's doing. 0-10-0 formations will catch on

    Yeah. Worryingly, yesterday's press snippets appear to have gone like this:

    "We aren't looking to bring anyone else in"
    "We might do one more deal"
    (one centre back promoted from the youth team last month gets injured for 6 weeks)
    "We tried to get some guy from Wimbledon but couldn't get the deal done"
    "SHIT GUYS WHEN DOES THE LOAN WINDOW CLOSE?!!"

    Then Joe Garner left quietly after the window closed and somehow it made me more nervous. Then I thought about Jordan Spence being undoubtedly a cemented first choice starter now because of the defensive lack of depth and I followed through

    Early days but Leeds are looking very impressive so far. Playing entertaining attacking football.

    @LionheartDJH That's definitely Bielsa's style.
