Far from "pathetic", calm down.
Cantwell and Sarr are very, very average. Neither of them have done anything of note really and would cost the best part of £60m to buy them. Watste of money shite.

I was a bit surprised no-one went in for Sarr when Watford were relegated. When Dacoure went off to Everton, I thought they would grab Sarr as well.  Not sure why he didn't draw any attention from us a while ago, given Dean likes a winger.

All this about Cantwell being average. He isnít at all, heís a very good player IMO.  Of course heís no Grealish but heíd definitely help us consolidate mid table. ( which I imagine is where we will be next season, hopefully ).

Consolidating mid table.  When do we aim higher than that? In 2 years? 5? Never?

Replacing Grealish with Championship shite like Cantwell and still suggesting we have European aspirations is frankly embarrassing.

Our owners have offered him a 60% pay rise, broken the club transfer record already this summer, they seem prepared to do so again.  What is currently holding them back is waiting for their captain and prize possession to make his mind up about his future before buying the players they need to take the club forward in the best manner that they can.  What is the point in planning for one course of action when in a single stroke that plan may have to be changed on monday if Grealish decides he is going to leave?  We won't know until monday the outcome of those discussions.  Do we think we might stop slagging off the best owners and management team this club has seen in many a long year.  Pull up our pants and act like adults for a couple of days and let them get on with the jobs that they have done very well to this point?  Bored of all your whining and club bashing.  Act like a proper Villa fan and support the club you claim to.

We rely so heavily on Jack itís crazy.

We have to be genuinely careful we donít get dragged into another relegation battle this season. Thereís a fine line between comfortable mid table and battling to stay up.

Iím really baffled why we havenít gone all out for players if as it seems Jack going has been on cards for a while.

You have a car. It's a nice car, you're pretty happy with that car.  It's not perfect though, so you spend some money on that car, maybe buy it a sports chip to improve the performance a little.  It's sounding good.  You know that there is a chance that some numpty could drive into the back of you on a roundabout, but do you buy another car just in case that happens? Or, do you wait 'til somebody drives into the back of the car and then spend their insurance money on a new motor?

I would love us to go get Aouar that's being linked with Arsenal and Liverpool. A player that would show that while Jack might have gone, Villa are looking up not shown and will find a way forward.
Leicester have lost players. Liverpool lost Sterling to Man City. Arsenal have too. Their budget is totally different to every other club. What we have to do is go and buy 4/5 players that will get in our team. A top centre mid, a top winger, a number ten. Proper competition for Ollie. We do that, in spite of Jack going I reckon we'll move forward. There are terrific players out there. Look at Rafinha at Leeds last season. The players being linked are 22/23. Get them right, with our youngsters, in 2 years time they won't need to move. And Jack will be kicking himself.
Bang on: too many jazz hands here at the moment. Nice to read some common sense.

Sarr has huge potential. He and Cantwell are both wingers though, so you would think if we are going for Ward Prowse now, then we are looking for a more solid 3 in the middle with genuine wide players. Buendia, Traore, Sarr and Cantwell gives you 4 very decent wide players to mix and match. It must be Sarr or Bailey though, as you don't buy both.

Still think Bissouma type holding mid is needed too.

Would like to see a loan to buy type deal for Van Der Beek too.

Two good shouts there.  Locatelli is still available too.
If we do lose Grealish itís vital we try and improve another position on the pitch as no attacking midfielder will be able to replace him.  A defensive midfield upgrade is where one addition could really increase the sum of the parts.
