Let's find the best young players just for one position so he can be a master at that position
Looks like thats what we've been doing with the acadamy.

Yep, the academy is where you focus on that and you sign to fill gaps or to provide experienced cover so you don't have to rely on the youngsters.

A defensive midfielder who can cover at centre backin an emergency means we aren't putting players between Bogarde, etc and the team but we're not leaving ourselves 1-2 injuries from having to play him either.

Yep. Also Smith has shown he likes a settled team and we don't have Europe this year (but hopefully will do next season). At this point having 2 quality players per position would be a waste so it's better to have a strong first choice team with strong back-up options who can get more games because they can be used in different positions. By the time we're in the mix for CL places or qualifying for it we will then need to have strength in depth to cope with 2/3 games per week.

The Academy is the future i agree, But we don't know if they ready for the big step up to the Prem, They need to go out on loan just like Grealish did to make him ready.
Smith said from the start he wants 2 players for every position that is why i don't understand people on here saying yes sign Alex Tuanzebe because he can play 2 poitions. ( Alex just example) . To me if you not going to give the player to succeed in his natural position then whats the point as he will never progress.
We are already so close having 2 players for every position having Young here now covers Targett, Who Know's about Cash cover i am hoping Guilbert is given the chance, Going forward the numbers are adding up now i just like to see a WOW signing for the number 10.
Then just need looking into the defence midfielder and cover for Konsa and i can see the Villa really kicking some Butt next season.

The Villa Park vaccination hub is open all day today for anyone over 18. No appointment is necessary. Please pass this around and encourage all those not vaccinated so far to use this facility if they can.

Good time to sneak signings in as well under cover of getting them vaccinated.

Okore could have done well, but he had that awful injury
Baccuna wasn’t that bad. He made a comment about how he would like to play champions league, which was blown up out of proportion and the crowd turned against him.

Helaneus had his shorts pulled down
Luna scored that goal vrs Arsenal
Tonev hmmmm

In reality, the first team is the only one that really matters at the club and although it is encouraging to see success at youth and U23 team level, the real measure of success of that structure will be the number of players that come through into the first team.

Bit of irony that we thought Jack would be in demand after a good tournament but I see the media are already on the case trying to flog SJM to Nan U/Liverpool after his showing for Scotland, no doubt Tyrone will be next 🙄

More likely that it would have been Darius Vassell.

Aye. Don't really want to throw shade at poor Davis, but the days when we had a host of duff squad players who we could hope to have a good international tournament in the hope of offloading them seems to be long gone.

Spoiler for Hiden:

Why are you posting this in the summer transfer thread? It has absolutely nothing to do with transfers.

Maybe stop agenda pushing and let people decide for themselves!
