I think Traore will be loved, he looks like one of those that doesn't know what he's going to do next, and could win a couple of games on his own, then be utter shite the week after. Players like that are always good fun.

Rashica looks a very good player at a very good age to get him. Still can't see it but if they both come it's pretty exciting, especially with the movement of Watkins.

Still my favourite ever Villa player...not the best player obviously but due to my age I'm not sure anyone will ever pass him as my favourite now that I'm in my 40s!

I loved Tony Daley but I was always pretty confident he'd hare it to the byline then muff up his cross.

He usually did.

He was always more of a wide forward and better when he was being direct and cutting in for goal.

He'd be better suited to today's game.

I loved Tony Daley as a kid.  To the point that, when I was 5 or 6, I got naked and painted myself with brown poster paint so that I'd be more like him.  I think I'd struggle to name half a dozen players who came even close to his level in my eyes (Paul McGrath, Super Jack, Nigel Spink, ... then I start struggling).

Could we revive That's Traore?  When he dance down the wing, with the ball at his feet... that's Traore...?

I think Olof's Beard used to put the top of a kitchen mop on his head so that he "looked" more like Daley.

Daley was a bit like Adama Traore when he first broke through - incredible pace but headless chicken.  I seem to recall Graham Taylor telling him to slow down/look up a bit more (much like Nuno has done with AT) and also saying he needed "a trick or two". After that he was much more effective and scored some brilliant goals.  I remember strolling down to Highbury when I lived nearby in the 80s and standing on the North Bank (you could just turn up and pay on the gate at the time) and the Arsenal fans were absolutely bricking it every time Daley got the ball, which I found very amusing.     

Rahsica's highlight reel reminded me of Tony Morley in places.

There were two distinct sounds I remember when the ball reached Daley, the growl of encouragement to "Skin him Tone", and the clatter of the wooden seats in the Trinity and Witton as everybody stood up.

Tony Daley was part of a promotion winning side, a cup winning side and part of two runners up sides in the top flight. Add to that the quality of some of the goals he scored and he definitely goes down as one of the best Villa players in my time supporting the club.

He would definitely have been better now with the reverse winger approach and cutting in rather than crossing...he was no John Barnes when he got to the byline but I just loved him. I still remember drawing a felt tip picture of his flying volley against Everton....good times!
