I really thought we were making a physical presence up top - presumably why we're after Gallagher

Glad to hear he did so well and sounds like he definitely deserved a goal

Got to start v Bristol

One game against a really, really bad Norwich side. I'll wait after he's played a good season to pass judgement, seen far too many Gardeners and Moores to get carried away yet.
Well let's hope this is a talent we nurture and grow, because there is obviously real talent there and I liked the fact that he was not intimidated physically.
It was a great performance and so refreshing to see a young Villa player do that.

He did the same against Brighton last season. Holds the ball up, lays it off and has a turn of pace/strength. Despite hourehans three goals Davis was my man of the match.

Agree he was awesome on his full debut, involved in virtually everything on the highlights and gutted he never topped it off with a goal. But I'm still waiting on something similar from Grealish.

So with the talk of us in for Sam Gallacher the dilema is do we loan someone elses talent and spend more money?

Or do we put our own first and save ££ at the risk though that he can't keep it up?

Strong and confident performance. In fact he was the difference in the whole team performance. His hold up play brought the midfield into the game and also a target to aim for. A pity he didn't get the goal he deserved but I doubt won't be long coming.

We should still go in for Gallagher. Gabby is shite and McCormack is a write off, so we need another option in addition to Kodjia, Hogan and Davis.

I'd go for the big man little man combo, with either Davis/Gallagher playing with Kodjia/Hogan...I can see any combination of those pairings working well and should create a consistent style of play.

They may have been poor, but he's just demolished players vastly more experienced than him. He was so much stronger than his opponent I thought Norwich had signed Ciaran Clark for a while.

My first notion of him was lacking awareness, as a poor back pass happened, he only looked, and then saw that it was a chance, and started running to late.

Then after that, he showed that he is the real deal, and I was surprised how he made his own space, worked hard, kept the ball, and had some great passing.

For me, he was the MOTM based on being biggest positive. Strong as hell and if they didn't have any respect at start, Norwich surely were shitting them selves after 15 minutes.
