    We had a recent article here with top players where I suggested that the top two in that list, Richards and ayew have been the only standout players for the last few months. I still stand by that. I don’t think however, we have a poor team. Just a group of individuals who may finally have a manager who can get everyone together thinking forward as a team, I think we saw glimpses of this against Southampton and I think we’ll soon become quite difficult to beat (imo). We have a lot of underperfomers currently, calling them out as ‘flop of the month’ is a little unfair given the scale of things down the villa for the last few years (how long now?). We need confidence from all faucets around the club at the moment, from blogs to fans at the game, to the staff working with the players. Maybe I’m being harsh, I understand your post, I also understand the sentiments of Bill Pearson who questions all our players at the moment, I just feel it’s in poor taste to blame a team of individuals who have had exactly that mentality bred into them by poor management and and a poorly run club for what feels like an age now. The entire team are underperforming due to a unbelievably large scale lack of belief, calling them out and pointing fingers won’t go anywhere in the long run.

    On the contrary, Westwood is the most overrated pile of shit footballer I’ve ever seen, how he sees first team footy in the PL is beyond belief.

      That’s a good post C & B.
      And I agree, there’s a lack of belief/confidence that runs through the club, from the top to the bottom.
      But while we try to be optimistic, the site generally is pretty realistic too.
      And you can see that most posters see things as they really are.

      Does happy clapping help?
      I don’t think it does, outside the ground on match personally.

      As for Westwood, I totally fail to see it with him.
      But managers keep picking him, which makes me wonder how much players are rated on the training ground as opposed to actual games.

        Good point maybe Westwood puts a 100% effort into training which managers like to see

    The biggest flop for me has to be Gestede, I’m afraid.
    If you don’t give him service, you might as well be playing with 10 men.
    And he’s utterly useless with his feet.

    I’m beginning to think I’d rather have gabby and that’s saying something.

      Benteke was crap unless he had service too what’s your point

        The point is that if Benteke got the ball, he might at least hold it, make something for himself or at least create something.
        Gestede has not once shown any sign of this, that I can remember.
        I’m not even convinced he can kick the ball, from what I’ve seen.
        Jeez, if you can’t see the gulf in quality……

        Well, no, you probably can’t.

          All I remember of Benteke was he was constantly offside and this handing initiative bk to opposition. He also had the first touch of an elephant

    Sounds like bent if he doesn’t get the ball gift wrapped its as good as being a man down,as for shabby however you look at it we’d definitely be a man down.

      I often now question training and coaching, you never hear a coach or member of his staff saked for poor results performed, what you get now is manager out staff out, surely as a manager you crack the whip on results going bad, Fergie stood firm at Man utd by demanding loyalty from tea lady to boardroom, all our shit comes from the top to the bottom, im getting more interest seeing what the crowds are and who is daft enough to have corporate box, I never thought Villa would end up being the whipping boys, I now look at team’s who are likely to help us by getting worse, frankly there’s none.

        The whole club is rotten to the core, how can people ask or suggest we should be more positive, we have taken 5 years of complete shite….
        We have battled relegation for years, then sold our best players and replaced them with unproven ones, because they are cheaper and these players were chosen through a spreadsheet…. We deserve to go down and be put out of our misery !

          It’s partly the fans fault for buying season tickets and merchandise despite knowing how Lerner is treating the club. Fans should of protested and boycotted it until this joker sold. People like myself have said for years we are doomed under Lerner but most people can’t see the wood for the trees

        That’s the chamionship maybe that standard suits him like a good number of our squad will become good players at that standard.

          I think the majority or our players will struggle in Championship, due to the physicality and it may ruffle their hair… Also it will be everyones cup final playing the Villa…. I see us as a mid table championship side… Major worries ahead, but the club are putting out stupid videos of players giving each other presents….. You really could not make this site up !!

        3 goals and no assists in 18 games for a team near the top of the Championship and you want him back? Gestede has scored 3 in 15. My guess is you think he is crap!

          He has only just started to become a regular most of his performances have been off the bench

    The fact that Hutton and Clark didn’t even make the list speaks volumes.

    Slightly off topic but I was wondering about the suitability of Traore playing upfront? If his whole unselectability is down to his refusing to track back, why not play him where he doesn’t need to? He’s strong enough, his pace is frightening, and when he’s on the wing he has less space to work in. Interchanging with Ayew, being fed by Gil, could be interesting.

    Villa scouts to be at the Anderlecht game to watch Praet and Najar. Possibly also Tielemans but that’s unlikely with everyone who wants him.
    Also heavily linked to Sirigu again. Interesting he’s reportedly claimed he won’t play for PSG again according to L’Equipe because he got dropped from Trapp and is trying to force a move away from them.

      No, not interesting at all, imo.
      Yet another mercanery?
      I’d say we’ve had enough of them.
