While I agree completely, we need 3 forwards and quick, Nzonzi is exactly the type we need in the middle of the park.

Still no closer to getting a striker it seems. Massive game this weekend. No fingers being removed from arses to sort it the fuck out.

Just because we are desperate for a quality centre forward doesn't mean we should ignore the powder puff midfield we are operating with.

worryingly the links and rumours seem to be drying up, i can see us going down to Brighton with no new recruits other than Reina and Drinky

Agree. Without McGinn getting his foot in, there is no press and no tempo. We need Nakamba to step up to the plate and start putting himself about a bit. I don't think Luiz has the pace, and Hourihane is too busy lining up his next MOTD appearance to actually have any effect on the game from open play. In fact, can't we put Hourihane up top and just tell him to shoot on sight.

Is this N'Zonzi link actually credible, because he's only been at Galatasaray since August. I mean is it a season loan because i doubt whether we can persuade them to rip up the agreement unless we buy him

Had a bust up with them in training and been suspended according to the papers.

Well in that case we shouldn't sign him. Troublemaker. But even worse, he shits on his own doorstep.

We ain't signing three new strikers this window.

At the moment just signing one who isn't at least 35 years old will seem a minor miracle.

This actually to me feels like a bit of a MOn window. Claiming don't worry it's all in hand, then spending weeks linked to incredibly average British journeyman and suddenly in last days having bids accepted for about six players.

We saw that wasn't always the best policy. Not sure what it is with British managers seemingly loving to stockpile at the last minute.

‘If your owners are so incredibly rich then why can’t you buy whoever you like?’
...Is a question from Liverpool, MU, West Ham, B/M City and Wolves etc supporters that I would love to respond to.


But if they are so rich, and they did their due diligence, and they went ahead with buying the Villa last year, then, why can’t we?  We need a striker.

Vida, N'Zonzi and Slimani all look like tough buggers who would be up for the scrap. Certainly would push our average height up a little.

Reina
Vida - Mings - Hause
Guilbert - N'Zonzi - Drinkwater - Targett
El Ghazi - Slimani - Jack

Bang average would keep us up. Below average wouldn't.

The best thing about that line up is that it is the team that would launch a thousand punathons.

I shudder when I see any player in a Villa line up with a name starting with the letters NZO.

New Zealand Orchestra? They are pretty good by all accounts :)
