Snodgrass?

Bruce has already bought players in the same position so I am confused.

I can only assume he is that good he couldn't miss out on getting him.

Hourihane, Lansbury and Elmohady were purchased in Snodgrass " favoured " positions plus I rate Adomah whereas Bruce obviously doesn't, when we signed Snodgrass I seen him as left side option but he says that's why he fell out with Bilic for trying to play him there....

Quite strange though Aspinall when he turned round and said that Billic was playing him in a position that was alien to him which it quite clearly wasn't.He has played on the left quite a lot through out his career and he can deliver a very decent cross with his left.

Just been reading that he's actually left footed but I do get what he's saying cus back in the day when I was playing I was asked to play left wing even though I was right footed and I loved it cus by having to cut inside it gave me an option of dinking one in or having a pop at goal.Where when I was on the right goal scoring chances were a lot scarcer cus I was always out wide.

Its because of transfer decisions like this, that I have become convinced that our manager has completely lost the plot.
Who, in a sane frame of mind, would sell one left back, without at least trying for a replacement, not forgetting the negotiations for Amavi were a long drawn out affair.
Who would reasonably look to break up a tight and improving defensive partnership, by replacing one mid-twenties part of it, with two mid-thirties has-beens.
Who would have the second highest assists maker in the league, playing wide right midfield/wing and a teenage International wide right midfield/winger, then buy two further wide right midfield/wingers.
Especially when our wide left midfield is so bare of options, that Flabby Gabby the pie-eater has to be played there.
Who in his right mind, puts all of his eggs in one basket, by entering protracted discussions for a loan goalkeeper, without going for a back-up option?
What kind of experienced manager has two transfer windows and ends up with a squad so unbalanced that we have 5 rightbacks and 1 left back?
Look at the evidence of the transfer business done, not forgetting we are right up against FFP rules, so could, at least theorectically, be banned from further transfer activity, for three years and tell me you are happy with the managerial decision to not only loan Snodgrass but, negotiate a buying price for seasons end.
Villa fans, forget promotion this season and get ready for any resurrection of this once big club to take another decade.

With the announcement of the capture of West Ham midfielder Robert Snodgrass on a loan deal this season, the player has said he can't wait to link up with Steve Bruce...

Of course Snodgrass is happy, he' found a club to buy him and pay his £60k wages.

We are paying 42k of his wages which if he helps us to promotion it will be a snip when you consider Richards and Gabby are on similar wages for doing naff all.Whether he will help us to promotion is in the balance until we learn how to turn the draws into wins so who knows he is a good player at this level though.

We haven't bought him and he'd get paid the same amount even if he stayed at West Ham

Yes David but, it would be money out of their bank not ours.
As for not buying him, we have, in all but name.
What took so long for this deal to come to fruition, was the negotiations with West Ham, for a price for Snodgrass at seasons end. Then we'll be paying all of his £60k a week wages while still being a second tier club.
Barnsley pulled out of doing a deal for Gardner because his £25k wage would shatter their wage structure.
The average wage in the championship is less than £20k.
Hourihane was on £7k at Barnsley, he's getting £28k with us.
Where the fucks the sense especially when you look at a club like Spurs. Erikson is on £115k this season but, last season he was on £30k. He's been rewarded for a brilliant season on top of a good season.
We have to learn that we are not a top ten premier club but a mid-table championship side.

We have no idea what players earnings are let alone someone from spurs. Any figures have got to be speculation or paper talk which is the same thing really.

Ericksons wage was the talk all over the place last season sirdennis. Players like Kane and Alli and Lloris were on or close to £100k, while players like Walker and Rose and Erickson were getting £30k+.
Hourihane was one of Barnsley's top earners but, still only on £7k.
The reason he came to us had nothing to do with football reasons but, was all to do with finances because we quadrupled his wage.
By the way there are sites where you can get players wages, club by club and they are never very far out.
