Scotty Sinclair has bags of pace and is a real finisher and Guestede is going to score more arial goals than Benteke imo this season. Can't wait for international break to be over so the NEW LOOK VILLA can start to suprise all those sneering journalists and pundits who have writen off Villa for the past 5 seasons. UTV
Wow, that's really upbeat. Cheers JV.

I think it speaks volumes that under Lambert I simply couldn't wait for any break from the football but now I'm gutted there's an international break as I so want to see this new-look team gel. They have it in them to be so exciting.

I think it will take a while before we can gauge just how good this transfer window has been. It usually takes a while to bed in two or three new players, let alone a new team. I am hopeful that with a more positive manager and a rejuvenated squad we can aim for a comfortable mid table position, it would have been a bit higher if we had managed to get a decent replacement for Benteke.

We've signed positive players, so we have to play positively.

Morning all.

We've done a bit of shrewd business ourselves right at the end of the transfer window by strengthening our management team. Sandie has joined us as CABA moderator, which is why his name is now lit up in green. Sandie has experience of both starting up and modding fan's forums and we are delighted that he's agreed to help us develop this forum in a respectful and friendly way.

Keep the posts coming guys and Sandie, Kimbo, GM and myself will make sure that you always have a friendly place to drop in to on a daily basis, in order to discuss all things related to Aston Villa, as well as just chatting in 'Off Topic' about whatever else is on your mind.

Welcome to your new role Sandie, here's to a happy and successful CABA future.

All the best Sandie.

My take on this summer's business is that Sherwood appears to have used what resources he had well.
The issue we have had over the last few seasons has been conceding poor goals, I think the amount of goals conceded in the last 5 - 10 minutes from defensive errors or losing posession in dangerous areas has cost us many points that has had the knock on effect of nervousness and confidence. The defence now has experience and strength and depth, the right back position will be interesting when Okore is back fit and I have a concern over the depth of cover should anything happen to Amavi but all that being said I think we look stronger at the back.
Last season we started well and lost impetus after the International Break, this season I was hoping for 6 points from the first 4 games, we only have 4 and goals are lacking but I do beleive that the break has come at the right time to give the squad time to gel and the boss and his coaches work on the strategy.
An often stated issue has been our ability to adapt to tactical changes by the opposition, the Man U and Palace games have shown that weakness this season as well but with a stronger squad and stronger bench when all are fit will hopefully rectify that.
Forever the optomist, the next 3 games, Leicester, Baggies, Small Heath are all win able and will give us the confidence to go to the Bin Dippers, a happy hunting ground recently, and put some more pressure on the despicable Rodgers.

COME ON YOU VILLA BOYS, FIGHT LIKE LIONS!

I think we have a much stronger squad than last season with a better and more positive manager. I think we will do better as the season goes on.

Thanks for the welcome, folks. The guys here have a great vision for the forum and I'm pleased to be a part of it. As said, we want CABA to be a respectful, relaxed and friendly forum. Will try to avoid making defensive clangers!

I agree SLV this break has come at a perfect time, it gives us a little time to work on a few tactics and get Lescott integrated into the defence along with new lad from Liverpool who I suspect may possibly play at RB. The need to do a lot of drills on the playing field and hopefully a mixture of good understanding, experience and confidence in one another will cut out silly individual errors that are costing us dearly. Meanwhile the forwards can all learn where the net is and we can get the others all fit....
