Don’t want Mings anywhere near Leicester. Far and away the most overrated centre half in the league this season, can’t keep Villa’s defence together and they are woeful at the back. There’s a reason he came through as a left back when he was a youngster. 

Completely agree that he is overhyped beyond belief. Do not get the fuss whatsoever. Confirmation bias from England fans is my gut feeling.

Dwight Mcneil from Burnley? Not sure how realistic but he seems decent. I think we'll grab a couple from the Championship and then 2 or 3 from abroad to fill out the squad. A winger is probably the most important, but if Fuchs goes he'll need replacing. Will Justin be played as a reserve LB or RB? We'll need whichever one he doesn't play.

This was in the transfer thread - plenty in here think we should be aiming higher. I agree with you - young, English, prem proven and to me, a no brainier purchase. Can’t lose on resale alone .....

So you’re a fan then? X

Five of our usual team , Evans , Soyuncu , Pereira , Ndidi and Vardy are among the best players in the premiership , Maddison should be as well but he has to turn up every match. That is a very strong core. Kasper is Kasper, world class at shot stopping but not so good in other areas but overall still a very good keeper. So four positions are debatable. Chilwell , Tielemans, Barnes , Iheanacho , Praet  and Perez occupy those positions .All are good players but attract the most negative comment on here. In my opinion we need two more players , a striker and a powerful box to box midfielder. Ben Chilwell and Youri Tielemans need to work much harder on their game ,they can be far better than they have shown this season .The other four have been pretty good really when played in their proper positions . Hamza ,Justin, Bennett and hopefully Mendy are very good squad players, so we are pretty strong really . We certainly have a very good squad and those two players could make us even stronger.

God I'd love Telles here. He'd be a fantastic buy.

Did you see his goal on Sunday night?  Absolute thunderbolt lol

 

Seems to fit a similar profile to Ricardo in terms of circumstances, if he were to sign and turn out half as good as him then that would be a great signing.

Tend to agree with this, he's an ever present in a Villa side that are leaking goals like a sieve and given the lack of decent options at CB for England at the moment I don't place too much importance on 'England International' in that position.

Should we make the Champions League a backup midfielder is something that would be extremely important.

 

It wouldn't surprise me at all if Maddison or Wilfred move in the summer so another player in the Praet mould would be good.

 

We were fortunate that we got a favorable draw in 2016/17 (especially without Kante and then Mendy) but Sevilla away was brutal on our midfield play until we took our chance. A tougher group next time around requires us to be very strong in the middle of the pitch.

 

A striker is another priority. Vardy has started to show signs of wear and tear so another option is necessary here. Until Nachoman's turnaround of late we've had no one on the bench to inspire us with regard to goals. It's gonna be next to near impossible for the next main striker to avoid the shadow of Vardy mind.

The next striker has to be someone who has the ability to play wide. The Holy Grail......finishing , dribbling and speed.

Fancy the issue is just as likely to be the fans patience...

What would we do without them. Starts to smell of mold in here when things aren't freshned up in here. Besides it's nice to know you read the sun and the mail so I don't have to.                    Besides it's not Celtic.... not that there's anything wrong with that.🦊

You will find that News Now is like a pair of shades protecting my eyes from the glare of both The Sun and The Daily Fascist Mail :thumbup:

After all loans and contracts have ended, this is what our squad will look like in the summer:

 

GK: Schmeichel, Ward

RB: Ricardo, Justin

LB: Chilwell, Fuchs*
CB: Evans, Soyuncu, Benkovic, Morgan*
DM: Ndidi, Choudhury, Amartey

CM: Maddison, Tielemans, Praet, James, Silva

Wingers: Barnes, Perez, Albrighton, Gray, Ghezzal, Diabate

ST: Vardy, Iheanacho, Slimani

 

*Included as it seems like they will be offered new contracts

 

Youth Players to possibly include: Iversen, Knight, Hirst

 

Leaving: Jakupovic, Bennett (loan), Mendy, King

 

Underlined are those who I think are likely to leave, whether on loan again or permanent

 

Would give us a squad of around 21 senior players, I think we will need between 3-5 serious contributions to the squad over the summer for next season
