    Someone who inspires the team with his words when needed to complement Poch

    It’s why I picked up on the comments last night when some Villa people were talking about the impact Terry has had

    I personally don’t put the value on winning one horse leagues like the French or Dutch league ... some do clearly

    We need a player who when we’re 2-1 down in a semi takes charge and gets the players heads on the game

    All the great teams had great leaders

    Good modern leaders look like Kane, Lloris and Verts though. Steely, driven and for their teammates, not the cameras.

    One guy who struggles to talk, one who doesn’t talk and one has never been trusted to be our captain despite being here long term...

    I can’t imagine one of them changing the mind set of the players mid game by giving them a rocket up the back side

    Is the ‘lack of winners’, ‘lack of leaders’ today’s lack of fight? We fought Chelsea, and gave up a winning game.

    As well as developing the right mentality, we need to defend better than we did in big games. The above outlines what consistently occurred with us, sorry for quoting myself

    Developing an ability to close out the game tactically is one key for us to move forward. Much more so than finding leaders imo.

    I think you've hit the problem on the head.
    Obviously there's different ways to solve that problem, my feeling is that we could do with an organiser, a player when when games start to turn away from us will be pro active.

    Not saying TBR is wrong about Barrow, just that TBR is hardly the go-to source for reliable information.

    The sports world is full of websites like TBR. Young, aspiring writers - or just literate hobbyists - chucking out light, bright, pieces of journalistic popcorn, often simply re-wording information published by proper news outlets. Mostly unpaid work.

    Much how I like Davies and Trips I think they both could be upgraded, certainly for the first team

    We suffered with out the pace of Rose and Walker, both in attack and defence - they were basically our only pace.

    Christian Pulisic would be a name to bolster the squad. Has been linked with us before (though that may mean nearly nothing) and is now starting to be mentioned again.

    Think he will go for huge money to a richer club than us, marketing reasons alone and he is a very decent player.

    When you say huge money, what sort of figure do you have in mind?

    Pulisic is a wet dream. I'd love to see him come to us. Very classy hard working quick player. :) I reckon he'll go to someone with more wages to offer than us, but who knows, we're actually good enough to attract these type of players now. Would love to see him in lilywhite. :)
