Yes, "neither, thanks" is the answer.

Heres 4 names who are doing ok at the moment - of them Moron and David look decent.

Loren Moron
Donyell Malen
Myron Boadu
Jonathan David

I mentioned Malen on a thread, not sure which, I think he could be a special talent but he's very young so he might not be the sort you sign looking for an immediate impact. Osimhen at Lyon looks a fantastic player as well, again very young but both are the sort of players we could pay 20-25m for and see bids of 2-3x that in 18months time.

Are those real players then?  I thought it was a joke that I wasn't clever enough to understand!

Same.

The difference in goalscoring terms between Grabban and Wesley is that Grabban gets many and Wesley the few .

I'm not always on board with your posts, but I like the subliminal attempt to influence the election in the last one.

Grabban feels like the striker equivalent of fat Sam. An admission that is were trying to scrabble over the line any which way, which may be true but Id prefer to have a sense that were sticking with a plan.

Grabban? Fucking hell.

He's not the forward you'd build a side around but he wasn't overawed in his spell with us and it seemed to click for him.

More stability that summer and there's a decent chance we'd have made the move permanent.

I'd probably prefer him as an option from the bench over Kodjia or Davis.  But realistically we need better than all three.

Not advocating we sign Grabban, especially as he is on the bench at Forest at the moment, but did see a stat on the TV during their game at Millwall saying he had scored the most goals in the Championship over the past five years. 



Re Grabban stat scoring most in last 5 years but surely that doesn't mean much as a premier league bench mark.
If it wasnt for it being a fact it would be totally relativism
Its bordering anyway because :If Vardy, Kane , Aguero , or even Tammy Abraham played in the championship the last 5 years they would be the top scorer.

Its like saying I'm the youngest child because my brother and sisters are older than me.
But if my brother or sisters were younger then they would be the youngest.

Grabban scored the most goals in the championship in the last 5 years.

Aston Villa are in the Premier league.
Its 2 different things

Help me out with this?

No. Though I agree you need it.

I agree it does look like I threw some scrabble tiles and let them lie wherever and made a post. They are actually footballers and Jonathan David looks pretty good. They're all young so would fit our buying philosophy. They may not be good enough to make an immediate impact though.

Moron's release clause is 40 million euros so a move for him would be a Darren Bent style splurge.

Good football brain mind you.

If villa don't sign this Moron then someone in prem needs too .
I hope the commentary don't refer to him as either just his nationality or his first name

Hearing chants of Moron and pundits and commentators doing so would be soo hilarious

I can already imagine the hullabaloo on h and v and social media if Moron was signed by Villa

I don't really follow football abroad so don't really know what kind of options would be available in other countries, but in terms of British football, I think we would either be looking at taking a bit of a punt on someone like Ollie Watkins from Brentford or Morelos from Rangers or looking to sign someone on loan from another top flight club.

I see your Lewis Grabban and raise you with Ross McCormack.

No strikers of note yet we look to bring in yet another centre half. WTF?

What we tend to forget is that we can afford to pay wages 3/4/5/6 x what players would earn in other European leagues.

We need 5 players in the January window although it will be a panic situation.

I initially thought a striker and maybe a winger wax all that was needed, but as each game passes I see more and more need for a central midfielder.  Nakamba gets a bit lost at times, Luiz is struggling to get up to speed, Hourihane is a defensive liability at times and Lansbury just isn't up to in the top flight unfortunately.
