There’s been more pandemics in the last two years than goals between Benteke and Davis.

Do you not think much of Davis then?

Davis still may prove people wrong due to his age but Benteke has lost the plot since us.


I always take pleasure in seeing how shit he has become. At Villa he had the world at his feet; A team built around him, designed to play to his strengths, a fan base that adored him, he was playing well and was probably 12-18months away from a move to a genuine giant club (Liverpool were still also-rans at that point) But his greedy shit agent Kismet got pound signs in his eyes, got in Benteke's tiny ear and engineered that move for a pay-day, screwing both Benteke and Villa. He can jog on now, Villa are going to be too good for Benteke within 2years.

I don't like Liverpool a huge amount, as some may have noticed, but they've always been a huge draw, at least for most people on here's lifetimes.

I don’t really blame him for leaving. We should have been building a team around him to make us competitive, rather than relying on him to single-handedly save us from the drop every year.

We need to not make the same mistake with Grealish.

100% spot on.

We have now evolved, or re evolved however you spin it.

I wouldn’t want Benteke on principle even if he could bag us 10-15 goals.

I remember attending an Under 21 international at Villa Park some years ago between England and Wales and I had to ask someone with a programme who the Welsh midfielder was who was easily the best player on the pitch. It was Aaron Ramsey. A very good footballer but as has been said already, he's injury prone and on crazy wages.

Living rent free is a term recently coined.

It's a no for me on Ramsey.

We have to stay well clear from players who may either see Villa as a step-down or their last paycheque. Paying stupid amounts for players in their twilight years has been very much part of our downfall over the years. The likes of Lescott, Richards, Ireland and Pires, to name but a few.
When such names as Ramsey or Lingard are mentioned I put those players in the same bracket of the above and would probably show a lack of motivation too, yet still command a big salary.

The club has a plan and i don't believe that plan has changed, I would be suprised if we bought anyone for decent money over twenty six years old.

Oh totally ATAL my friend. At least that was two posts he has done without slagging off Davis.

Ramsey is a no because he’s on huge wages at Juve but he is not in the lescott et al bracket yet. He’s not even 30, is at Juve and not because he’s rubbish and over the hill - remember he was playing every match for Arsenal before he left so it’s not as if they wanted to let him go they just “did an Arsenal”.
