Bbv you're right in that Jack's goal was a moment of real quality in a game that was otherwise memorable only for the ridiculous red card for JK and the massive turnout from Villa fans (again), felt like a home game. Our Jack looks lost in this league, it's very physical in the final third and I think he would flourish in a top footballing side where he would be at his best & able to express himself.
It's clear that Brucie already has his eye on next season by changing formation, Fulham looked a tidy & organised outfit but nothing more. I'd say that if Hutton, Bacuna, Adomah were on in a 4-5-1 we would have had a very good chance of a win.
On JK - 19 goals says a lot, he has further development in order to add to his game and this may put Premier League suitors off but 20 a season strikers are hard to find and expensive. It's clear we have loads of work to do in the summer to come out firing on all cylinders in August:
Sam J - agree, young and has potential - I think we'll sign him
Chester - many positives, a leader, a few goals and very cool under pressure
Baker - good season, keep.
Hutton - will move on I think, good luck to him - Bree looks average but still early days.
Amavi - too many mistakes, Taylor is suited to this league
Elphick - ok as cover
Adomah - keep
Bacuna - keep
Lansbury - keep
Hourihane - keep
Gardner - not good enough
Bjarnsson - too early to say, looks a warrior so ok for this league
Jack - loan out to a Prem team next season
JK - keep him if we can
Green - could light us up next season
RHM - loan?
Gabby - pay up his contract
I trust Bruce to build a team that can challenge for promotion, anything beyond that's a big ask for him.
