Since you have been very much a part of that Eastie especially over the past week your above statement is more than a tad hypocritical. 

Furthermore why announce on site that you're taking a break again. 

Come on lads. For goodness sake, stop all this nonsense. You are entitled to your views but sometimes it's best to say nothing. We all have times when we get pissed with an answer or comment, but let it go and agree to disagree. I thought you blokes were mates? Mates dont keep pissing each other off.

no mate , I am not suggesting Remi was lined up for the managers job in the summer. 

I am suggesting Remi  was a recruiting scout / agent for the club over the summer  in France , for the purpose of recommending  good value French players , for Paddy Reilly and the AVFC purchasing commitee  to purchase

Ok so where are our scouts surely they should be the ones recommending players for our manager? But if this is the case its a bit strange we get advice on french players by the guy who we then sign as manager? 

I am not questioning anything your saying im just trying to work out what is happening at Villa.

I think our scouting network over Europe is something that has  been a bit thin on the ground over the years , compared to other premier league clubs. 

It's hard to work out what goes on at villa park mate as they keep a lot to themselves.  

It is probably just a coincidence that Remi recommended  the French players to the AVFC purchasing comittee who then used the moneyball method before purchasing them  (traore is spanish) and then  Remi ends  up as  manager

and maybe another coincidence that only a matter of 2 or 3 hours after Tim was sacked the national media were reporting that Remi Garde is the man that Aston Villa want to replace Tim Sherwood

As stated in my above post there's no evidence whatsoever and plenty to the contrary that Garde had anything to do with the signings in the summer but at least you've now dropped the Moneyball argument Pat concerning Traore.

I agree with you there Pat but didnt are scouts find Benteke? Are scouts selected by managers or the club? I never know if its the managers choice where he wants his scouts or the club sends them off to where ever. I do think this club needs a kick up the ass when it comes to the footballing intelligence.

Maybe, again I'm not trying to draw this out but it just numbs me how teams are finding talent where we struggle to do so. Do you believe this club needs to rethink its scouting process? again just a question and this I know is the wrong thread for this matter.

I dont know ascott or yes maybe they should or maybe they did in the summer by asking someone working for French TV if he could recommend any promising French players so the purchasing comittee  could run the moneyball method on them before purchasing those that passed the moneyball test

Anyway one or 2 of them look alright ,,,,,,but no where near as good as Benteke,, ,,,,,,,,,maybe we should go back to looking at players in the Belgian League ,,,,,lots of them seem to do well in the prem

There are a few talented players in the Belgium league ive said about okaka in the transfer thread already but there are a few youngsters in that league that I believe will become the next star.

I think we'll see the kind of players RG wants in january, passing isnt exactly any of the new signings strengths so i doubt he had any input.

 Did RG also have a say in replacing Benteke with Gestede??  I'd like to think he'd prefer someone with some technical ability. 

Veretout is probably the passer in the squad, Ayew is a little like Lacazette. It is probably me over thinking but i just feel these players were bought in for someone else not Tim Sherwood
