Last few games?  Our final match is 26 July, bet he doesn't play again this season.

Confirmed? Thatís not good news if that is the case.

We do seem to have been one of the least fortunate teams with injuries. Currently missing (arguably) four of our first choice back five, our main striker and have a half fit John McGinn.

I'm not a huge fan of him at this level but worth remembering he started at left back for Fulham when they beat us in the play off final so he obviously played his part in their mass winning run.

Fulham didn't take up the permanent option (if there was one) and pinched Joe Bryan off us last minute although judging by his prem games he's of a similar standard to Targett.

Last reliable one was Bouma. Took a year to settle in but showed his quality defensively for the following two seasons. Saw a few of those classic euro games and you forget Holland were calling up Bouma for major tournaments before we signed him.

As much as I , and others , lambasted this chap I have to hold hands up and applaud him both today final day and decent few final games in as much as the fight and effort he showed.
The match v Everton (let's just say glad I was on break from here) I was livid with him and Walcott heading that goal.
Don't care now though so we eh villa followers !!
But today though he was again, like v Arsenal, soild and battle hardy. When needed. And I even remember him winning a few booming headers and being determined.
Immense
Appreciated his interview afterwards v Everton as he seemed genuinely distraught and he actually stepped up.
Matt Targett well played for all the flak I gave so pleased to say well bloody done hanging in there and proving me wrong (Dean Smith phrases.)
Cant always think I'm so foresight so defo holding hands up and applauding him

He's been better of late, and is decent going forward but a good defender he is not.  Gives the ball away cheaply when you'd really rather he didn't, like all match today.

Agreed, he's one player I'd like to see made a squad player with a better LB coming in this summer.  It's SUCH an important position in the modern game.  God knows who's available though...

Thank you for doing that.
I think Targett has had a very good mini-league despite his muscle strain and the Everton ball-watching.
We now need another LB to replace Taylor and put pressure on him.

We need our replacement in situ first before we slam Leicester for £25m

I'd rather keep him. Very good going forward and improved defensively after lockdown in a more solid side. If they want to throw the majority of that 50m our way then that's a different story.
