Hourihane wanted to come to Wednesday before villa so it may not be unrealistic, personally i would swap him for bannan with 3m cash coming our way

I think Hourahane is a rated higher than Bannan we would do well to get a straight swap. I would like to see it happen as he can deliver balls into box on a regular basis the likes of Fletcher and Winnall thrive on.

On a different and unrelated  note..just to avoid starting a new thread.. Andy Rhodes has been troubling me recently..I cant help feeling a large amount of animosity  towards the man... I feel he was in peoples ears to sign his kid and then its been well reported there was friction in the squad because of him trying to get carlos to play favourites.. I know it was said some of the players found out about this and "bullied them" ..but I would be bloody furious if I was a player who saw nepotism creeping in to the team selections, bullying may have been fair! .. I know there are alot of people to blame for JR signing..fans included.. and blame may be a strong word because we are looking back in hindsight.. but I just get a feeling AR was overstepping the line on more than a few occasions.. hes recently been sacked by Oldham  as well.. not sure why but it just adds to be suspicions.. I may be totally wrong but I haven't seen anyone voice this and I genuinely feel the man got away lucky  

I read bullying stuff on here at time of forum so you did not imagine it. When JL arrived from about third game Rhodes was sent to watch game from stand by Luhukay saying he wanted a view of game from this level. However I was told there was unease between the two of them and it was no surprise when Rhodes left. I think he is excellent goalkeeping coach but best left to that role.

It was said on here Fox is some relation to Agnew who is related to Rhodes. After last weeks performances by full backs when limitations were clearly exposed to see what happens with Fox going forward. I think Agnew seems a diplomat who does what he is told and does not enter into politics from interviews so far so do not think we will have a problem.

Just me that thinks Hourihane is overrated ?

Yes mate as he has scored more goals from midfield in his 60 odd games for Villa than Bannan has managed in double that, add to that he has only got 4 yellow he has not missed 3 games through suspension.

 

For me I would take the money for Bannan if we could get £8m then replace him with a younger better championship midfielder in Nick Powell who has just 6 month left on his deal at Wigan, at 24 he will get better i.e. improve his resale value.

 

2018/19 - Powell 18 games, 4 goals 5 assists 

2018/19 - Bannan 23 games, 2 goals, 3 assists

Inclined to agree, but I'm not convinced Bannan to Villa is a goer. Reach possibly, but then maybe not if they're chasing Sawyers. Agree with Nick Powell suggestion. Players entering last 6 months of contract - like Winnall when we purchased - are clever buys. Powell for one, Josh Vela at Bolton is another I'd consider.

Bannan ain't going no where.

 

Bruce has been a big admirer of his for ages. 

 

Selling him to Villa is highly unlikely to be on his priority list.

Be interesting to see how many times each player played the pass before the assist. 

As that is what Bannan is all about.

All our good moves normally start from him.

Hes involved in almost every thing we do so you’re right about that. Conversely all our bad moves normally start with him too!

Fernando has started acting oddly on his instagram stories. Bit of an unnecessary dive here.

His stats show he touches ball a lot and creates very little by comparison. It is true we channel ball through him but this makes us slow in build up and very easy to defend against. He also loses ball a great deal.

 

QPR match is a beauty about 120 touches from memory, they allowed him to have ball as they knew it generally amounts to nothing.

How many small players has Bruce signed in managerial career? he normally signs brutes in defensive midfield.
