I enjoyed that. Very comfortable throughout and we could/should have scored more.

Positives:

Even with a makeshift team we looked coherent and organised.
Great goal and impressive debut from Traore
Ramsey looks class
Excellent hold up play from Keinan
Guilbert should stay

Negatives

Shame Lee Johnson isn't still around to suffer that drubbing.

Watching the reserves play in the same style as the first team is another small step forward. We've lost enough similar games not to play down such an achievement.

Winning games is always good. I know when we lose these cup games we make any number of excuses why and tell ourselves it's not a priority and so on but there's not much better than seeing a Villa team comfortably swatting a team aside. No matter who's in our team or in theirs.

keep Guilbert , incase Trez and El Ghazi carry on looking poor , you could bring Freddie on at RB and push Matty on the wing for 25/30 mins as he looks to have a great final ball on him . in fact he was on the left wing against us in the 5 5 draw and scored .

I'd replace one of the defenders on the bench with Ramsey.

Yes, at this stage Ramsey should at least be on the bench.

It just feels like things are starting to come together. There's a plan and it appears to be working.

Ha!

I think he was predicting the last spot would already be filled with an as yet unannounced new signing....

When such scenarios exist we have our second captain and an utter hero.
Elmo for me is streets ahead , proved and reliable.
Far less likely to do any rash challenges or caught out positionings.
Guilbert never impressed me or Smith enough.
Lest we all forget the numerous yellow cards and failing in his struggle to adapt and being unfit. He had especially poor form and wasn't ready for project restart.
For me I see him someone failing Deanos 'home schooling test' as he obviously couldn't take the required feed back. But also he was signed under old regime and no longer wanted isn't a Smith man.
(Had become poor show after promising start)

Elmo is the one who needs to be referred to a heck of a lot more than Guilbert but hes not

Common sense is genius dressed in its working clothes

I like Elmo also; dependable and have good crosses. Probably not streets ahead though. Did nothing wrong as stand in CB as i remember. Lacking some pace but have good posisional sense

I don't mind Elmo, I had question marks over his defending when he joined but he's improved since he's bene here, far fewer silly mistakes now. However he's 33, if we're moving on one of the right backs I don't think he offers anything more than Guilbert who is 7-8 years younger and coming towards his prime rather than at the end of it. If it's a financial decision then that's fair enough I guess but in terms of squad development I'd rather keep Freddie.

That said I would be against keeping both for a year and having Elmo as an older head covering 3-4 different positions.
