Is it worth going for Llorente on a short-term basis? Could do a job up until January and at least it'd be another option.

I think bigger fish than us are in for him.

Money talks. We can afford to get him in even if the wages are steep. We simply have to try and stay in this League.

Not quite sure why our full backs are coming in for any criticism.
Of all of our longer serving players, both Elmo and Taylor have stepped up massively.
I go so far as to say that Elmo is also the best winger at the club and Iíd rather see him playing in the position occupied by either AEG or Trezeguet.

I think both McGinn and Jack are struggling to pick up the pace and power of the prem and need to pick up on their performances.
Once they do though I think we will see a big improvement in the results.

Iím glad we have for these two Ďfirstsí out of the way.

I rate Trezeguet. Heís strong on the ball and always wants to go forward. I like his confidence and think heíll adapt to this league quickly. Not really sure what you mean about McGinn.. I thought he mightíve been the best player out there today. At certain points I felt like he had the team on his back.

We looked less threatening up front than we did in pre-season because we'retaking too many touches before we cross so instead of attackers and defenders running towards the goal they're stood waiting, this is why Targett and Guilbert need to come in before too long. I don't care if people think Elmo and Taylor have done ok, they're not getting forward quick enough or with enough quality to unbalance sides and we've got a couple of guys in reserve who look like they can do much better in that aspect.

Agree with this, first half we struggled to beat their press as it was a flat back 4 which is very easy to pen in, second half they got forward more and that also meant Luiz could take the ball off the centre halves with more space as well.

I agree with many that Elmo and Taylor have done well first 2 games but for me they are not offensive enough as players.

Taylor had a very good game as he did last week. Almost scored too.

Iím pretty despondent after that game; we gifted them two early goals and struggled to create much throughout the 90 minutes. Bournemouth had half the first team missing and looked pretty comfortable holding onto the lead. We looked ponderous up front and it is these type of games where we need to get points at home to give us a chance of remaining in the league. Todayís game reminded me how the so called best refs are still shit and watching Bournemouth diving around and time wasting constantly makes it doubly frustrating.

Villa Park was great today. Went early and spent some time in the family fun zone. New signage is excellent and oh the ST cards didnít work had to queue up for paper tickets but other than that itís just the result that was disappointing.
Despite the horror show in the first 12 minutes we should have won this game. We were wasteful and naive. Need to grow up fast to survive.


With ya, mate. I've had a brilliant day, all told, despite customer service and stepover and sleepy goalkeeper issues.

Any update on the cob/bap matter?

Apart from the goals, both of which were our own fault, Heaton didn't have much to do. We were the better side, especially in the second half.

The only concern I have is that we don't have a natural goalscorer. Tammy used to get in the right positions time and again throughout games. We haven't replaced him and there has to be a question mark over where the goals are going to come from.

We need Wesley to 'do a Benteke' sooner rather than later.

We are already under big pressure.  Same as 2015 no one to score the goals.  Assuming we lose 12 games against the so called top six we have 25 games after today to get 35-40 points.  Going to be a long hard season.

Get a grip of yourself ffs.  You were the same last season after Bristol City won a game in the last minute on a day when we weren't even playing.  How did that result affect the league table?

No need to panic after that, we will take time to gel. Second half was much better.

Slight concern over Wesley. Wins nothing in the air despite being extremely tail, easily knocked off the ball and his body language at times is a little annoying.

Awful errors for their goals but Luiz grew into the game very well and his goal was magnificent.
