Must say I preferred the Gabby back then. He was far more agile and pacy.

What a great set piece delivery Young had as well, nearly forgotten it.

I remember the despair when Ballack scored, and then the utter explosion of happiness I had when Barry stuck that penalty. in those days we had bottle in spades. One thing many might not have spotted in that video is one Brendan Rodgers and Scott Sinclair sitting on the Chelsea bench at 7:20. Oh, how time flies.

Didn't even recollect that Rodgers was at Chelsea.

Laursen though. Majestic.

Was watching a Carew montage for us. Long time since I've heard such a loud Villa Park. He was half decent for us.

Look at all those nice precise crosses bouncing off the head of that tall striker. When did we stop making crosses like that? Oh yes, when Young left. Come on Green, you know what we all want...

I've just seen this compilation of Kodjia's 19 goals from last season:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WhAjithPt-0

It breaks down to:

Penalties: 3
Crosses chipped in from the edge of the box: 2
Crosses from out wide: 2
Individual goals or played in down the middle: 12

So two things here. Firstly this is where I see Grealish playing behind Kodjia and feeding him some of these natty through balls. Secondly, only two goals scored from crosses from out wide? Two? Out of 19 goals? Seems a waste of Kodjia's height and strength, doesn't it? Sure, Hogan and McCormack can't take down a cross for toffee, so why not play three at the back and pack out the midfield with them, but our first three friendlies have been 4-4-2, so when are we going to try out a formation with a lone striker? No, Kodjia (and potentially Grealish - go on Bruce, give it a go!) won't be there to make it work properly but what, we cross that bridge when he comes back a month or so into the season? Or... am I missing something?

I'd love it if we could get proper wing play back. Green is ace, but wish we could be more direct in general

Me too, seems pointless playing a 4-4-2 if the whole midfield is there to defend. Likewise if we're going to play wing backs do Green and Adomah fit in there? Or are we going to rely on Elmo and Bjornason? Or even Hutton, who does everything really well except defend and cross.
