Striker you say?

Again, would be massive statement. Pretty much the reason Villarreal got as deep as they did in the Champions League.

I'd wonder though whether he might be one of those who is really good but not quite suited to England.

Borja Baston scored a ton after he left us.

Well, he did if you count 5 and 17 in the last 2 seasons of the Spanish 2nd division as a ton.

Compared to what he did at Villa, I would.

He just signed a 5-year extension last year, so it won't be easy seeing that his value is at an all time high. That said, it would be a good addition. A striker with a deft touch, a knack for goal and a proven record in Europe. I'm not sure I see it coming together for us, and on the flipside it would be another 30 year old signing.

Moreno's numbers and quality are impressive. It would also be a real statement of intent that he'd be prepared to give up playing in the Champions League with Villarreal for the only real Villa...but he is 30 and had a number of problems with injuries last season.

Don't really mind us signing a few older players considering the amount of youth coming through so it's not really an either or situation.  Plus I'm all for us signing a full team of fellow Gerards

What signing a mixture of younger and experienced players suggests to me is that finally we're signing players for the system and not fitting the system round the players.

Stick Gerard Pique at the back with Diego. Gerard Depardieu the big lump on the goal line to help Emi. Gerard Butler, find a role for that prick. Sign Gerard Deulofeu from Watford on a free now that they've gone down.

Borja surely ended up in Segunda? Probably more comparable would be Negredo and Soldado in recent times. And Morata of course although he did look good for Chelsea early on and generally bench warms at whichever club he's at now.

I think Moreno would be suited to English game actually as he's strong in the air and his link up play is solid so upgrade on Ollie.

Could get Gerard Adams in to do the press conferences, he's adept at dealing with the media.

Wonder if Gerrard is considering three at the back. He did say Kamara was an option at the back and Carlos coming in today. Cash and Digne certainly are encouraged to play very high up the pitch at times. You tube clips (suggested KEA was a superstar!), seem to indicate Carlos is very comfortable passing the ball out from the back. Obviously an area Gerrard wasn't happy with.

Moving Mings on would be a huge statement of intent from Gerrard that the spine of the team isn't good enough. New number 6 and possibly 5 already in.

Oh oh. Three at the back again, this won’t go down well.
