'NOT FIT ENOUGH, NOT EVEN SURPRISED' - ASTON VILLA FANS SHARE DIFFERENT THOUGHTS AFTER LATE DEFEAT TO LIVERPOOL
Aston Villa manager Dean Smith has refused to comment on speculation surrounding his side and a move for Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos.
Morelos has been heavily linked with Villa , who are thought to be in the market for a striker once the transfer window re-opens in January.

The Colombian hot-shot netted his 21st goal of the season last night , in Rangers' 2-0 defeat of FC Porto in the Europa League.
He also assisted Steven Davis' goal for the Gers' second, with the 23-year-old showing once again why Premier League clubs have been touted as possible destinations for the former HJK Helsinki man.

Morelos has spoken of his desire to move to the top flight and Smith is an admirer, commenting on his goal.
But he refused to talk extensively about another club's player.

"I certainly saw his goal last night," Smithsaid.

"It was a very good finish.
"He's a player who is contracted to another football club and we aren't a club that talks about them."
No way he’s going to that dogshite of a club.

Morelos can do much better than Villa or Crystal Palace.

I know his dream is to play in the EPL but him and his agent would be mad not to hold out for a better move than that.

Big club, great fans a strong history with a European cup. Massive financial backing behind them now and they’ll only push on. Morelos won’t get a move to a Chelsea/Man Utd/Arsenal etc yet. Needs a stepping stone and Villa would be that
A stepping stone? Why?
It’s good for rangers that players who have gone fine there have done well. McGinn van dyke etc.
That plus - big plus- the fact he’s scoring in Europe to means he won’t need a stepping stone.

Currently 3 ‘Morelos might be off’ threads on FF. Can we not believe our manager, and bin this stuff unless a bid is actually made in Jan? Don’t see the point in worrying everyone when there’s zero substance to any of it. The man is here till June. Believe it.

I think Atletico Madrid would be the perfect move for him at this stage.
Atletico would be the perfect move but I think he'd rather the prem league.

Amazing manager who has brought through a lot of young players at Atletico and raised their game and a team that could work as a stepping stone to bigger teams like potentially Barca/Liverpool/City, calling them a stepping stone sounds wrong since Atletico are very capable of winning literally anything and are one of the top clubs in the world. But you know what I mean.

Definitely a perfect match for him at this stage in his career but as I said I think he'd still prefer the prem league. I really like Atletico as a team and what they've achieved so I hope he goes there but I can't see it.

They spent £22m on Wesley from the Belgian league, who seems a bit of a dumpling, lazy too. There’s no way we should accept any less than that, any deal would need a decent sell on fee too as if he went there and did well you’re talking massive money

I honestly think he would walk into any side in the EPL other than City, Liverpool,Spurs and Arsenal.
Right now, I think he'd walk into the Arsenal and Spurs sides.

And as I posted in another thread, SG has stated that Alfie will definitely be here beyond January. How can he be so sure? Maybe I'm adding 2+2 and getting 5, but that suggests, to me, that SG knows that Alfie will leave in summer, and also knows where he'll be going. And SG is still very close to Jurgen Klopp. Would he walk into the current Liverpool side? Nope, but he'd be there or thereabouts, and he's not a young man who'll turn down a challenge.

They are a middle of the road English top flight club.
Do you think that is as high as Morelos can hope you achieve?
Ffs they are the biggest club from Britain's 2nd city, they have a good history, won a European cup and 7 english titles and are on the rise. I'm pretty fucking sure alfredo will help them get there if they stump up the sizable amount required.

There are other big clubs out there. We were in the Scottish 3rd division a few years ago ffs.

To directly answer your question i think Man utd would be fucking daft not to sign him, but they are a fucking shambles and will probably spend about 100m on another diddy who will collapse under the weight of his fee.

I'm not worked up mate, but try to think rationally... villa are a big club rebuilding. If they can afford morelos and ward off the likes of Man utd in the process then he could take them to mid table and above.

He won't go to liverpool imo, but when Gerrard gets that job I do think Gerrard will sign him straight away from whatever club he ends up at. With an over inflated price to do us a favour on our 20% sell on fee of course.. :))

However a transfer to liverpool with a loan back to us for the year to play in the CL & build experience at the highest level before getting starts for them the following season would be the most ideal situation but it is imo a fantasy
