Combine Ings and Watkins would be a great player and probably cost 60m... can we find a player that has Ings' finishing and Watkins' work rate?

If we are looking for a replacement centre half it will probably be someone who is available on a free transfer

Hause obviously will never play for Villa whilst Gerrard is manager - what a waste of a salary and his career.

There's a few players in a lot of squads who stay permanently on the fringes as fill-ins, occasionally getting a run in the team.

Hause was rewarded with a new contract in January for some decent performances last season up to that point. He'll probably be disappointed that we brought Chambers in straight after that to replace Tuanzebe at a point when he might have thought he had a real shot at getting in the team more often with Konsa's form slipping and Mings prone to the odd clanger, but it was always going to be a fight on his hands to dislodge those two for more than a couple of games as aerially apart, he isn't an improvement.

Newcastle and Brighton will both finish above us this season. Even Forest's new attack (Dennis, Maupay and Lingard) would run rings around Konsa and Mings. Brighton are very good and Brentford have goals in them.

As ever, there won't be much in 8th to 14th, but we are just too inconsistent to back being the best of the rest. If we went on a 5, 6, 7, 8 match unbeaten spell I would have more hope, but we never do. It's 2 or 3 matches against prime relegation fodder and that's the show.

I'll start believing again if we hand a drubbing to this awful manure team. Nothing would please me more than seeing those ****** get absolutely destroyed by us. What's more likely to happen is Watkins will fluff 4 or 5 sitters and we'll lose to a dodgy pen or defensive error then the week after they'll get rolled by Bournemouth.

Yeah but you know if we did they would come in, and switch to having Ings running and watkins finishing

Linked to Jason Denayer as replacement CB; and also to Rob Holding (no thanks to the latter - should be called Ricket Holding).


I always got Chambers and Holding mixed up at Arsenal and was afraid we signed the shit one in January.  Thankfully we didn't so no need to get him now.

The Croatian at Marseille surely makes sense.  Send Sanson back in exchange.  2 birds and all that.

Obviously still a little while left, but with Carlos being out for the season and Bailey's league outings so far, our squad is looking mightily like the one that was so inconsistent last season.  I'm starting to wonder if the owners are looking closely at Gerrard, or it's just that their targets aren't willing / aren't allowed to come.  Or something else!

I don't see what Carlos being out injured has anything to do with any of that.

The stadium plans etc suggest its not Lerner style boredom. I do wonder behind the scenes how closely we are flirting with FFP

There's no point signing another centre back unless they're better than Konsa and/or Mings. Assuming Hause's injury isn't massively long term then we'll have four fit centre backs, which is an appropriate number. If we can quickly identify and sign an upgrade on Konsa/Mings in the next two weeks then great, but I feel like that's unlikely unless we're willing to spend about 30m on a position we thought we'd got sorted before Saturday.

It has a lot to do with the first sentence, don't you think?  Kamara will improve us no doubt, but that won't be enough to achieve what we all hope for in my opinion.
