Fantasy Football Should Aston Villa Players go In Your Team?

A lot of fantasy football enthusiasts may have looked at Aston Villa’s position last season and already written off their Fantasy Premier League credentials. Perhaps this is justifiable considering Villa finished 5th in the Championship. And they conceded more than 60 goals across the season.

The Claret and Blues do have a host of attacking talent though, who may fit nicely into fantasy football teams. Their far from ideal goals against record heading into such a punishing league probably means their defenders can be overlooked for the time being or can they?.

After all Aston Villa has rebuilt their backline since promotion, so the question is, do you include some of these players or not?.

ASTON VILLA FIXTURES

Before we list Villa’s best fantasy prospects though, let’s take a look at their opening fixtures in the Premier League. After all, team fixtures are often as important as the players themselves in fantasy football.

While The Villa start the season with a tough away trip to Tottenham, their fixtures make for good reading over the first eight-game weeks. Fantasy managers will be earmarking home fixtures to Bournemouth, Everton, West Ham and Burnley in that period. There are also away fixtures against Crystal Palace and Norwich which the Villa faithful will be quietly optimistic heading into.

Fantasy Football Pundit’s fixture difficulty matrix shows just how comparatively favourable Villa’s fixtures are. Furthermore, it justifies to include them in your team.

PLAYERS TO WATCH

For fantasy managers who aren’t Villa fans, Jack Grealish will be the player who first comes to mind. Villa’s captain might only be 23 years old but plays like a player beyond his years. There are no prizes for guessing he is currently their most picked player following his excellent performances last season.

Another exciting player, who will be lesser known to fans who didn’t watch the Championship last year, is John McGinn. Villa fans are confident the Scotsman could have his best season yet and could be vital in keeping them in the Premier League. He is £0.5m cheaper than Grealish at £5.5m.

Based on last season’s stats though, Conor Hourihane is the way to go. His nine goals and 11 assists show just how much end product he has. The question will be whether he can carry these numbers into 2019/20. Fantasy Premier League have priced him at a competitive £6.0m.

One under the radar selection could be Mahmoud Hassan, better known as Trezeguet. The Egyptian signed and could straight into the team. He is a risky choice given we haven’t seen in him England before but sometimes you’ve got to take a chance in fantasy football!

I wouldn’t recommend either of the forward options. Jonathan Kodjia or Scott Hogan. As their starting likelihood after the arrival of newly signed Wesley Moraes must be up for debate. And considering their previous goal returns were minimal, It’s hard to see that changing in the super-tough Premier League.

Leeds winning 1-0 at H/T. I think we will see a different Leeds this campaign. They will know that they will need about a 30 point cushion at the top of the table by the end of March if they want a chance of auto promotion. i think we will see Leeds really go for it from the start of the season.

Blues today…
23% possession. 185 passes, at 57% accuracy, 1 shot in the game. Result Brentford 0 – 1 Blues

That’s relegation shyte and a misplaced pass nearly every minute of the game. The point of this post is not to laugh at how crap our neighbours are or to gloat that we are in the PL and they are in the Chumps.

I am highlighting how important both Benrahma and Maupay are to Brentford. Can they really afford to let them go? And if they do let them go they will want to do it ASAP to have a few days to replace. A player or two going the other way would help. I think it would be crazy if Bees let either go on the last day, no matter how much offered, a but like McKenna to us last Aug. So if we are to get Maupay and or Benrahma then it will probably be Mon / Tue

Yeah they may not be match fit but why not have them on the bench, surely they are fit enough to play the last 15 / 20 mins. I think Bees board want the cash in and I expect Franks want to know ASAP how much he can spend on replacement and to try and get them in

Completely agree, makes a mockery of FFP. Very sad for the fans and local businesses and workers at the club. one of the elite clubs should have had a friendly against them as a gesture of good will. The Football League would be much better if Chelsea played a game at Bolton than giving Chelsea a ban for over spending or whatever they did wrong

Good point, also where do the huge fines levied go ? Perhaps holding them in trust to support clubs employees in this type of situation might go along way to changing football fans attitudes towards FFP regs, rather than the organization keeping them to pay huge salaries to elite members of some board. Shades of World cup committee misuse of funds for me.

Also parachute payments that are not paid. From an accounting and budgeting perspective parachute payments are fully allocated at the start of the year. However, para payments are not paid out until the end of the season. However, if the club get promoted back to the PL then they do not receive any parachute payment for the season just completed. Villa were due 16m in para payment and did not receive it as we were promoted. Where is this 16m?

Also, a really bad conflict of interests. Yr 1 para payments are about 45m. If Cardiff, Fulham and Huddersfield get promoted next May the PL saves themselves 135m in para payments

I would like to think that the remaining clubs in the division get a slight increase in there season solidarity payments from the money the EFL did not have to pay out to the promoted team in parachute money.

Yes parachute payments as well. Think this runs deeper than just PL though. There should be more money in championship too given its popularity and a fund set up to help teams from the football family in dire straits. I dont mean paying players salaries or managers and hierarchy but certainly the staff and those that rely on a modest salary from clubs.
With this much money in football there should be a better system if its truly about trying to prevent clubs from getting into financial difficulty.

A first team Chelsea 11 would have got a few bums on seats and a few quid in the bank. I think the FA could be managing the FFP process better. Surely the could fine Chelsea 10m and use this money to help small clubs or something like that. I am not saying that is the solution but I just feel FFP doesn’t work to deliver the objective it is put in place for.

With no FFP, we could put a bid in for Messi ?????
