Villa agree terms for Leon Bailey as per transfer live blog ssn.

Agree0 0Disagree

Shame, good quick player. I think Villa have got a great player there but loosing Grealish is/ will be a massive blow.

{Ed0666's Note - if they get 3 or 4 players that are good with the grealish money don’t you think that would more than make up for losing 1990’s raver boy?

Buendia bailey seem like they've known for while maybe off as believe in similar situation with ffp as Everton.

{Ed0666's Note - What’s that in English?

People will bring up James Rodriguez's appearances. or lack of them for everton last season, but his stats hold up against anyones, I can't believe Rafael Benitez is willing to let the one world class player we have leave the club, what's the alternative in the number 10 role? Iwobi? Rodriguez doesn't possess pace, he does however possess vision, awareness, deftness of touch, an eye for a pass, long range shooting ability quality crossing. can anyone give me a list of Alex Iwobis attributes and make an honest comparison.

His passing and ability not in doubt but there is no doubt that playing him on the right encouraged opposition to attack us down that side and the majority of the time it was easy for them. A coach such as Rafa will not accept it abd good for him.

Agree0 0Disagree

So don't play him on the right, let play 10, manage his games effectively and he will be an asset, we have enough legs in midfield with Allan, Doucoure and Davies etc to cover for his lack of defensive work rate.

Agree2 0Disagree

31 Jul 2021 14:09:44
I think he is using gray as the number 10 at the minute. Maybe that's his plan for the team. He looked good in that role from what I've seen.

Agree0 0Disagree

Whilst wouldn’t want to see Rodriguez go it does make sense from a business perspective.

Cost us nothing.
Only a 2 year deal so can leave on a free next year.
Probably on a decent wage.

If we can sell him this transfer window will make some money which we could potentially re-invest and also removes a high wage of the wage bill.

Point being it didn't work last season. CA was pretending to be our Manager, Rafa wants to be here, we either trust his methods or hire another plane with a banner.

James is worth keeping around for another year as he raises our profile. If he goes we have no player with world class status.

Agree0 0Disagree

31 Jul 2021 19:46:12
Sheedy unfortunately we do have one other player who currently has world class status - unfortunately all for the wrong reasons though 😬.

A good post DFS totally agree mate.

Agree0 0Disagree

01 Aug 2021 02:17:49
Point being DFS that it worked even less last season when Rodrigues wasn't playing, we still haven't got a new RB and we are nowhere near getting a right sided attacking midfield

Without Rodrigues where's out creativeness going to come from?

Benitez still has time to sort it out but he hasn't yet.

R. I. P. Jimmy Angel Gabriel. Great player, great man. He was even our caretaker manager 93/ 94. If you not old enough to remember him watch then end off the 66 cup final.
If Alan Ball hadn't won the World Cup for England, Jimmy's Everton career would have been a lot longer.

{Ed0666's Note - R.I.P Mr Gabriel. Lovely post that Thankyou blue. A

Deffo looks like we're going to miss out on Bailey now to villa doesn't it. going to p. me right off seeing him play for them after wanting him since we where linked in his Genk days.

Agree1 0Disagree

30 Jul 2021 23:02:15
If they do sign him would suggest their star player Grealish is off.

Not sure I’d be happy if we sold one of our star players to be able to facilitate signing Bailey. Looks a decent enough player but to sell a proven premier league player and your best player to be able to recruit him doesn’t make much sense.

Agree0 0Disagree

31 Jul 2021 00:08:32
Grealish was going to be off this summer regardless imo.

Tbh if we could sell richy/ Dom and bring in Dumfries, Bailey, cm, Tammy Abraham imo we would be way stronger.

Look what Liverpool did by selling their best player in coutinho.

Agree0 0Disagree

31 Jul 2021 10:36:30
Abraham isn't worth the 40m Chelsea want for him, we haven't got that sort of cash to be wasting!

Agree0 0Disagree

31 Jul 2021 13:23:32
If we could get 70mill+ for richy or DCL we could spend over double that due to the way most deals are structured. Tbh Abraham was just an example and who I would personally replace Dom with if we sold him.

It’s just so frustrating that we threw away 30mill on Iwobi. But know we can’t spend the same on a lad who we have scouted for years and could genuinely be worth treble what we would pay in 2 yrs.

Koeman/ Walsh and Brands to an extent have really put us in the mud.

Agree0 0Disagree

31 Jul 2021 13:25:54
Abraham was also Chelsea’s highest scorer excluding pens. Would be an excellent replacement for Dom imo. Lukaku mk2 vibes.

Agree0 0Disagree

31 Jul 2021 13:43:18
I just don't get the hype around Abraham in all honesty. He had one great season, albeit in the championship with Villa, but haven't seen much of him in the Premier league. Be interesting to see how many goals he scored in how many games.
Eds, what's the score between him and Tuchel? He never got a look in once the new manager came in. Was it to do with a bad attitude as the press tried to make out or is it just plainly football reasons why he was dropped from a lot of squads?

{Ed002's Note - Since Tuchel arrived Chelsea played 19 league games and Abraham started 6 was on the bench for 5, injured for 5 and not in the squad for three so it is not really correct to say he did "not get a look in".}

Agree0 0Disagree

31 Jul 2021 15:20:31
Didn't realise he was injured, ed002. I remember reading something in the press about Tuchel wanting him out due to his attitude, probably them just stirring the pot then. Cheers Ed.

{Ed002's Note - It is about a new contract.}

At times last season we were impressive and only faded due to fitness and tactical issues which was all CA. we also had major injury and attitude issues which again I believe were down to CA
We have the base of a good team and with a decent coaching team we need only a few dedicated additions in the right places.
Ridding the squad of some of the free loading dross with poor attitudes will improve the team/ squad immediately.
I think we need to remain grounded and lower our expectations on transfers, after all we have many players that we haven’t seen “play” yet that have been with us for some time and may actually turn out to be valuable.
This transfer window more than any other in recent times has to be more about who leaves rather than who comes in.
Can’t wait for the season to start and if we line up without Delph, Holgate, Iwobi, Delph, Gomes, Delph, Siggurdsson, Delph, Tosun and Delph then I will be a happier blue!
Oh and Delph needs to go too.

Agree2 0Disagree

30 Jul 2021 23:55:44
I agree with most of what you've said BA, although I'd be inclined to give Holgate another season. Last season he had a bit of Stones about him (thinking he's better than he is) but the season before he was probably our best centre back.

You seem a bit undecided about Delph though.

Agree2 0Disagree

30 Jul 2021 17:46:09
Up to Five players being made available for transfer, let's hope we can finally move them on and bring in some decent players in their place.

Agree1 0Disagree

30 Jul 2021 19:11:50
Delph, Gomes and Iwobi surely have to be a priority right? (And Gylfi depending on how his future pans out) . Kean and Mina want to leave don’t they? What about Richy? And then there’s the likes of Kenny too. A lot of potential outgoings none of whom I’d be sad to see love but then I’m not sure we will get much in terms of transfer fees for them. The key thing is they will be off the wage bill. As the Eds have mentioned, a rebuild is needed and fans need to be understanding and sympathetic to this. I think Rafa will be just the right man.

Agree0 0Disagree

30 Jul 2021 20:23:11
Agree mate and don’t forget Cenk, looking forward to this season thought Carlo was the Bees Knees for me when appointed manager but he seemed as though he couldn’t be asked, Rafa gives me hope exciting times ahead COYB.
