      he is probably the most tested player in the league in terms of his ticker.

      I know I've said I would have happily seen us sign him. But at the same time, shame he didn't show a bit more loyalty to Brentford, they were pretty much the only team willing to take a chance on him to return to Premier League football, for him to then walk out on them 6 months later.


      Don't think he walked out on them. He signed a 6 month deal. It expired and he left as a free agent. I guess Brentford could have signed him on an 18 month deal. He's a quality footballer ... no doubt about that.

      Another MF option is John Mcginn, What a player he is.

      Good player but he's no different to Hendo IMO. Will chip in with the odd goal or assist here and there but he doesn't have that attacking threat we are craving for from the midfield. Most amount of goals he has gotten for Villa since their return to the Premier League is 3.
      Reliable for minutes though, very rarely injured.

      Being like hendo aint a bad thing.

      Plays different for Scotland, more of a free role. Makes us tick and scores goals.

      Energy, tackling ball winning, keeping the ball, turning players with his big ass. l o l

      I think he would be ever better in a team like Liverpool with better players around him.

      Would thrive in our team. Really like him a lot. Again, I would LOVE to have Jude, but I'm not sure I'd see the juice being worth the squeeze. While you get an awesome player, he's probably the only player you get, and our MF needs a revamp, not just one guy. Guys like McGinnis, Coincedo, the kid from Leipzig, etc. are out there. Maybe that's the better route?

      Anybody here watches Ligue 1 games? If so I would be curious to hear your opinion about Lyon's Maxence Caqueret. I've watched a few OL games here and there and this kid has ''Klopp's midfielder'' written all over him. He's a relentless presser of the ball (its like watching a bee, he's everywhere you look), good tackler, defensively very aware of the space around him and when he gets the ball back he will carry it over short distances to get past the first line of pressure the opponent throws at him and dispatch accurate passes. The way he spins with the ball and dribbles to get out of tight places is very pleasing to watch (very press resistant). His passing is not Alonso-esque or Thiago-esque, but its progressive and of quality. From the little I've watched, I'd be surprised if Caqueret is not the closest you can get to Tchouameni in Ligue 1.

      we seem to be interested in young potential these days rather than experience. Of course Youth is cheaper .

      Tielemans mentioned again this morning in the good old gossip column. I'm not convinced by him to be honest. On the upside he is a free transfer and I think that's a market we will be looking at.

      Personally, I believe there is a great player in there, but we cannot ignore that he has been below par for the last 12 months.
      We'd probably have gone for him this summer if we were interested, though.

      I think Teilimans appears disillusioned at Leicester, maybe annoyed that they didn't sell him a couple of seasons ago when he was 1 of the best midfielders in the league.
      Big question is, can he get the motivation back if he moves to Liverpool or another big team? Or will he continue at his current level, which is not good enough for us. Also, do we want a player that appears to have stopped working for Leicester?
      He's not very high on my list. Maybe as a squad player if Ox, Keita and Melo all leave. He could be decent a free transfer but I think he'll probably go somewhere that will pay more wages, Newcastle maybe?
