A midfielder like Everton's Onana at £33 million or Southampton's Aribo at £10 million would have been a good option here at Villa in my opinion. They would add physicality and drive, not to mention goal threat.

I'm glad we "missed out" on McNeil. He was dreadful yesterday.

Yeah he’s one of those players that would look okay in a meat and potatoes 442 bit struggles for identity in today’s formations.  Gordon is similar - what position is he? - but just looks like he can up his game to suit many roles.

And both did more than Demari Gray. Everton seem woeful up front.

On a transfer front, I think we are genuinely close to having a well balanced squad. A Tammy-esqe striker to play as a lone striker in front of Coutinho and/or Buendia and/or Bailey would be great.

Onana looked good when he came on for Everton and had the right kind of drive that we are looking for from our midfield.  Saying that, JJ did as much as Onana and had a really good game for Villa.  McGinn was solid enough but is still the weaker link and if we can get a player who uses the ball better, we'd have the balance that we need.

I thought McGinn was superb,won lots of tackles and used the ball well.To me JJ is the weaker link ,great when we are overrunning the opposition but not so good when we are defending.

Quite impressed by Forest. Actually throwing money at proven PL talent. Are there no FFP worries?

Wish we had been as bold the summer we came up instead of hopeful punts on Wes, Naka, Trez etc.

Must be their best squad since they finished 3rd with our Stanley Victor in '95

These clowns spent £20m on McNeil to add to a deal that could end up being £40m for Deli Alli.

They've built a squad and not just a team. However the defence looks shocking player wise for this level.
And not sure how much of a team they have. Certainly have the numbers don't they!

Cooper seems a manager who can organise and I'm wondering how many signings are actually his.
I don't know how they'll get on as that team and squad will take a while to gel.
Could be a solid win for West Ham today based on forest still finding their team.
Rather interesting to see though how they will do this season.
Certainly don't think they will have a Leeds/ Sheff Utd /Wolves impact but if they stay up will add some comeptetive nature to the division.

Everton are awful, we were our own worst enemies yesterday in allowing them undeservedly to come close to a draw. However, I too thought Onana looked good.

The Forrest striker looks a unit and pain in the arse to play against. If he takes his chances too then they’ll have done well there.

One to watch.

When you need all the help you can get you don’t go and get players like Dele Alli. Much like us bringing in Lescott and Richards during our crisis.
