Team sheets out:
Gollini
Hutton elphic Chester Amavi
Gardner Jedinak Westwood
Adomah gustede kodja

I wrote the other day I thought away from home or atleast against the stronger teams Bruce will go for a stronger defensively midfield 3, guess that's why grealish misses out but he should cause havoc against tires legs second half!
Gustede up top I'm guessing to occupy their centre backs as a real handful so I'm very happy with the team! Should be coming away from this with minimum a draw, hopefully Jedinak can handle Wood, as him vs our two 6 foot centre backs won't work! Come on the villa!

Deserved to draw it up until the last 3 minutes when we got sloppy and just didn't have a clue! Adomah has to take his chance one on one! Owell we move on!

Steve Bruce has responded to rumours about Hernandez joining Aston Villa in January. We have a little problem where we lose two strikers in January but I will not be getting anybody in up top we have 6 or 7 strikers we need to strengthen elsewhere. Thank God 4 common sense we have Rudy gestede and Ross McCormack and Gabriel agbonlahor libor Kozak and hepburn-murphy. So my guess is midfield and defence! We need hard working midfielders and creative midfielders. As fans i lisen to a lot and all of you keep demanding strikers our strikers are not bad its just we have no service to them at all. Westwood only goes sideways Jedinak can't go forward doesn't have the legs and gardner is just a 6 out of 10 player everyweek. I would also buy another centre half aswel as a right back. In toto I believe Aston Villa need 4 players in january. How many do you the fans think we need? And is steve bruce wrong?

Haven't seen his press conference but I'll take your word he said that, but 1: don't come out and say thank god for common sense when we haven't seen you say we don't need a striker in January until now, after the manager has already said it - it just winds people up. 2: although you are right at this level all those strikers you listed should perform but under RDM we was drawing because non of them could finish, creating chances wasn't the problem. Now it's interesting because if a striker of better quality were to come up (Jordan Rhodes) Bruce would take him in a heartbeat, and the owner has said several times the plan is to get a striker in on loan, so sounds to me like his throwing people off so it's easier to get deals done. However if say McCormack, gustede, Gabby show the form we know they can, then we won't need a striker. You are right about us needing centre mids, however creating chances isn't what's lacking from there, just general quality is what's needed. If the strikers start performing with kodja and ayew gone, and we come out of January with a quality centre mid and right back (Hughes and trippier for me) and maybe a winger, that will see us into top 6.

Mr. SKIA. You said " all of you keep saying we need strikers ".
That is utter bo. ks. I don't say it and I can't recall anyone else saying it either.
I've defended you on here when others have threatened to leave because of you! . So PLEASE stop talking rubbish. Engage brain before opening gob.
And one more thing ; please don't utter the words Barry Bannan on here again lol. Our club wants to move forward, not backwards.
See you at Leeds xxx.

i agree chris apart from tripper mayb its bad luck but every time i see him his been awful. 1 position Steve Bruce did mention he was going to buy was another goalkeeper. should be a exciting january enjoy the game tomz mate going to be tough but a villa win 4 me. UTV.

I agree with some of what you say Chris. But!
IMO we've been crying out for more creativity in midfield for several seasons. Creating good chances is vital and we are still a low scoring team. So I feel we need to spend big in CM.

Westwood and Gardener are mediocre at best. Also I think Agbonlahor is finished. I would definitely give RHM a go but we do need a quality striker on loan.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Nov 2016 17:32:45
Ok and fair enough when i say all i mean people i spoke to i put that badly my fault nobodys on here. Andy mate if i can't have bannan can i have ian taylor back lol i still think his better than westwood lol. See you at leeds mate 4 a nice cold beer. UTV.

25 Nov 2016 18:24:07
Westwood does have his admirers, we sit next to 2 of them at away games. So its all a matter of opinion! But I'm glad we agree on him. I've been bleating on about him for far too long. He needs to GO IMO!
I can't do Cardiff away but will be at Leeds QPR and Wolves. Love the away days. !
A cold beer sounds good to me 👍👍.

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Nov 2016 23:31:19
If not trippier I don't think we still need a right back, and in my opinion this season we have made enough decent chances to be top 2, just need to finish them. A hard working creative goal scoring midfielder wouldn't go a miss though. AS for a keeper unless it's a back up I don't understand why we would bring anyone in, unless his selling Gollini?
3 players in Jan - new right back, centre mid and attacking mid/ winger/ flare player (knockeart, forestierri, Brady etc) an dad we will be out of this division next season!

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Nov 2016 16:05:25
Yes we need to strengthen team but only in defence and midfield in my opinion.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Nov 2016 16:13:01
So people we are linked with Hernandez again apparently Hull City want to swap Hernandez for Rudy gestede would anybody swap Rudy gestede for Hernandez? And 2nd question how many goals should Jordan Ayew get by the end of the season yes he works hard but we need him either to set up or score so far at both of them his been poor!

Believable3 Unbelievable0

23 Nov 2016 16:55:32
I would swap Gabby for Hernandez and yes Ayew does need to get more goals.

Agree2 Disagree0

23 Nov 2016 16:59:38
Gustede hasn't really put a foot wrong when his given his chance but no doubting Hernandez is a better player, don't think hull will be willing to that it's BS. We'll see what gustede and McCormack are worth during AFCON.

Agree1 Disagree0

23 Nov 2016 21:12:10
I'd do that swap to be honest (assuming it was being offered) .
Bruce seems to want to play with plenty of pace upfront. Hence the inclusion of Gabby.

Agree1 Disagree0

23 Nov 2016 21:43:01
Yes I would swap Gestede for Hernandez. A better all round player.
Regarding Ayew, he frustrates me. Yes he's a talent. But is he a good team player? And does he score enough or directly create enough chances for others? IMO no. Would I sell him? No!

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Nov 2016 00:57:27
Both Gested and Ayew should score more. Come to think of it McCormack and Gabby. The forwarward line needs to produce. Nice to see goals coming from mid-field and defence though.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Nov 2016 18:23:15
Just a quick flyby to share with you all a rumour told to me by a smokey, seems the boro want jordan rhodes out in january, either loan or selling, but they are making overtures about ross mccormack, and possibly micah richards, as cover for injuries to one of their backline, so there you go, must dash, the crystal ball is beginning to illuminate,
Keep the faith fellas! Our history long and strong.

Wouldn't want to lose McCormack hasn't really been played in his correct position because of the emergence of kodja an only playing one striker, given his chance during AFCON I think he'all be brilliant, you don't score that amount of goals consistently being a fluke. So if they want him they can stump up about 17 mil, 5 more than we paid and we can then go get ourselves a forrestierri/ Brady/ knockeart and take Rhodes for the striker position during AFCON. As for Richards in Jan we have toner coming back for cover at CB, and during the 1 game his played under Bruce Richards played at right back and he was probably better than Hutton, so if they want him give us 5/ 6 mil and we can go get trippier loan or buy and then use the rest of the funds and get a top quality centre mid. Bruce has always done good business and he won't be forced into anything he don't want so if he sells someone we will have a better replacement waiting!

Agree2 Disagree0

17 Nov 2016 20:44:01
I hope you're right about Mac Chris. I agree he's quality player and just needs to get a good run in the team and a few goals while the AFCON boys are away. He's got good vision and first touch and is a good finisher.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Nov 2016 22:13:13
Yea whenever he comes on his link up play an vision is above anyone's in the team, just needs to play down the middle and with another striker, which at the moment while Bruce is looking for substance over style and just getting results, he isn't going to get the chance to play up top in a 2 because 5 across the midfield and 1 up top is solid going forward and back, and I can't seen Bruce experimenting until we're comfortable or he has to (AFCON), whichever comes first, I'd bet on it being AFCON.

Agree1 Disagree0

14 Nov 2016 00:03:02
Apparently club's are trying to lure Rushian Hepburn-Murphy away at the end of this season. It is said that he has refused to sign the contract that has been offered to him, which we have no details of at this stage.
Now, I wonder what you chaps make of this.?
IMO, he looks like a good prospect. I've only seen him play on a handful of occasions but straight away he impressed me. A bit like Mark Walters did when I first saw him.
However, at just 18 should he be holding out for more cash? Should he firstly get established in the 1st team squad, make a name for himself and then seek a better contract? Does he see the possible return of Agbonlahor as a barrier to breaking into the first team or is he just being greedy?
let's have some views boys.

14 Nov 2016 07:26:08
Read it was rangers after him and the Dr is annoyed because we will get less money him going there then another English club. also the kid want to get where he can get first team football, he's been pushed back in the pecking order behind Gabby.

Agree1 Disagree0

14 Nov 2016 22:23:41
Through a friend who's in the know about some stuff, Hepburn Murphy is moving to a new home that is handy for Bodymoor Heath, doesn't suggest to me that he's off imo

UTV.

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Nov 2016 06:49:04
At 18 you would probably expect him to have more first team experience, especially now we're in championship! Wouldn't be a huge loss imo.

Agree1 Disagree0

16 Nov 2016 21:06:13
Its good to keep young talent. However from the lmited times I've seen him, he hasn't appeared to be hot enough to keep a place in the first team. He isn't Dwight Yorke yet.

I was talking to a bloke today in work we were talking about betting and gambling he asked me did I ever here of a player called Gabriel agbonglor (sorry for spelling ) he was saying his ex girlfriend used to work in paddy powers and gabby used to put in £10000 on a daily basis playing poker online he wouldn't have known I support villa nor does he have any interest in football this was back in 2010 they must have some amount of money to blow.

Believable1 Unbelievable0

08 Nov 2016 22:06:31
Everything sadly is relative.
If your earning 50k a week. is that a lot of money?
(I'm not saying this is right! )

But let's be honest. if you earn enough money, that you can have anything you want. can we blame them for spending, even blowing some?

Not a professional footballer fault what someone is prepared to pay them!

08 Nov 2016 22:16:08
I seen gabby in star city casino last year so could be true.

08 Nov 2016 22:58:14
Yea mate sounds like BS, they don't give that sort of information out willy nilly, especially for a high profile customer spending those sorts of figures. When you sign up to those websites and agree to the terms and conditions within the privacy detail there are parts that protect you and your identity as a customer, and even if she were to be high enough to get that info (doubtful), telling someone whose then just letting people who he doesn't know that well know, it doesn't bode well for her job or their relationship lol. Unfortunately because of all that it has to be fake.

{Ed007's Note - I'd take it with a pinch of salt.}

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Nov 2016 23:29:49
Great point ed!

{Ed007's Note - I do have my moments :-D But it is a rumour site and Mick's posted in a rumour. And be honest, if you seen a player's bank statement would you be surprised to see that kind of cash being deposited in gambling accounts even though it's against the rules for them to bet in matches?}

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Nov 2016 07:05:40
No! And that's what I was trying to say. it's an obscene amount of money to you and I, but to a guy who earns a week more than the average joe does a year, it's pocket money. Like I said, everything is relative,

I don't blame him having fun with his money if he can afford to, and I don't blame anyone earning it. If you don't like what they earn, blame the people willing to pay it!

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Nov 2016 08:16:51
Ed he said in his post he was always betting on poker, so he wouldn't have broken any rules, but still BS I think, wouldn't surprise me if he was spending that much on gambling and similar things. I just don't think it would be found outthe way it was described. Plus paddy power is a joke, their servers rarely let you on at peak times lol, if he had any sense he'd be on William hill vegas, then again it is Gabby so sense doesn't come into the question.

{Ed007's Note - Is it seperate accounts for poker and football bets, I thought it would just be one account to gamble on anything on their site? That was my point, I was just meaning in general with footballers, considering the money they make would anyone be surprised to see that kind of money going into gambling accounts whether it's for poker, horse racing or even their sneaky football bets?}

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Nov 2016 13:28:51
If this is true it just shows gabby is a horrendous poker player.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Nov 2016 17:14:54
You might be right ed, I know for William hill you have to have separate accounts, but god knows about paddy power.

{Ed007's Note - I'm no expert on gambling so you'll know better than me.}

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Nov 2016 18:54:45
I'm not say it's true or false it's just what I heard if it's true it's crazy money to be gambling but then it's just peanuts to footballers now a days, but if he can afford to do it all I'll say is fair play to him, I am aware that his ex girlfriend would have been breaking all sorts of rules,

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Nov 2016 13:38:57
Today Steve Bruce has said that there's no better striker in the championship than Gabriel agbonlahor so people do we agree that his better than kodija dwight gayle even Cameron Jerome? Surely his just trying to give the lad confidence because gabbys record for goals isn't great am i wrong? Does anybody agree Gabriel agbonlahor is the best in the championship? love to hear your views as always UTV.

Believable0 Unbelievable2

07 Nov 2016 17:23:55
If he did say that, he has been on the jollop mate.
I think even Gabby would think is this bloke for real making statements like that.
Have not seen the article.

Agree1 Disagree0

07 Nov 2016 21:17:26
It's called management.
Getting the best out of people is a rare skill.
Motivating under performers to give 100% is a Bruce strength and he has a lot of opportunities.
We must all join Bruce in his efforts regardless of who is loved or loathed.
If we all put one name on a list that we want to see re motivated, I would hazard a guess that 50% of the current players at VP would be on the list.
The crowd must go with the managers decisions.

Agree2 Disagree0

08 Nov 2016 03:22:21
*Disclaimer - I don't know why I'm bothering but here goes'

A fully fit and firing Agbonlahor probably would be the best striker in the championship but I think we all know we aren't likely to ever see that Agbonlahor again. Too much time has passed since the last time he really lit up games regularly. But that being said he doesn't actually have to be the best striker in the league to be an asset to the club so I commend Bruce for trying to raise his confidence. If he bags a goal or two off the bench who knows what might happen.

Agree0 Disagree1

08 Nov 2016 12:28:20
I think your right Andy, but we haven't had a fully fit Gabby for probably 5 years unfortunately, so you will probably get shot down for agreeing with Bruce.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Nov 2016 16:41:24
Did Bruce say that about Gabby or was it a made up story by the news papers. God what is he on. Remember when he was at his best he had up front with him the likes of Benteke. Also in the team Young, Milner that's just naming a few.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Nov 2016 22:05:43
When Gabby's come on he's looked pretty good at Championship level. He looks like he still wants it. His finishing has always let him down. Once he gets a few games under his belt, he'll be an asset to an impressive strike force. I'd be more worried about our mid-field.

As for the gambling, its his to waste. let's hope he gives an equal amount to charity.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Nov 2016 11:12:09
Aston Villa is looking to sign £12 million-rated Polish striker Łukasz Teodorczyk from Dinamo Kiev in January.

He is on loan at Anderlecht at the moment, and is scoring regularly for both club and country.

I think that Bruce should loan him with the option of buying him after this season, and then we can move Ayew as a right winger. I think that we should sell Kozák, Steer and Cissokho and sign 1-2 players.

Believable1 Unbelievable2

10 Nov 2016 10:07:30
agree with Kozák, Steer and Cissokho but would add Richards and Gabby. We are OK for forwards but need right back, left back cover, controlling midfielder, and speed merchant winger who can give end product,

Agree0 Disagree1

12 Nov 2016 22:11:46
Kozac and Steer can go. We need a squad though. The Cisko Kid hasn't been too bad (except the penalties) . Richards is a great athelete. He needs to be managed properly. He he doesn't listen to Bruce, he can go. Gabby needs to continue to keep with the program. If he does, he's worth keeping.

Absolutely Buzzing! Deserved it as well, they had most possession but we had by miles the better chances! Formation worked well, kept it tight didn't give nothing away and attacked in numbers. Finally a good performance from Gardner, him and bacuna were outstanding for the whole game, kodja and gustede ran their socks off.

Chester and Baker solid, Hutton put in effort and was good defensively (should have followed the pen in quicker though! ) only negative was cissoko, his effort and attitude can't be faulted but his a headless chicken, two pens in two games is ridiculous, Amavi has to start Saturday surely! Let's put a run together now, 6 points off the play offs! Up The Villa!

Away support was best in the land, no booing, non stop and just as we started to sit back and invite pressure their it was everyone singing them home, brilliant!

19 Oct 2016 09:51:44
chrisAVFC, I couldn't agree more, mate. I tried to see the match on the Internet. But the way I read about the it, I think that Aston Villa fully deserved their victory. Now we need to keep going like this, as many victories as possible, because we deserve better. It looks like we finaly have the right manager after the past 6 years. Hope this season we will win the FA Cup, but next season we will do our best to win just that and maybe the League Cup as well. I'm an optimist, that's why.

Agree1 Disagree0

19 Oct 2016 14:41:15
I couldn't care whether or not we deserved it; we bloody well needed it though. Too many times this season we have deserved to win games that we have ended up drawing.

Confidence needs to build and that happens by winning games. Then we can start to worry about how well we play.

Believable2 Unbelievable0

17 Oct 2016 23:04:53
Think it's true, shame because playing through the middle he is outstanding! Owell he will learn, think the referee Saturday caused a lot of incidents, if a ref can't control a game then players get wound up and end up taking it out on each other. If you keep being taken out over and over and no one being punished for it, it's human nature to lash out.

Agree1 Disagree0

18 Oct 2016 09:51:26
Maybe true he could get a 3 game ban and would miss the birmingham game but he can appeal against the decision.

if he appeals think the fa could add extra games if your going to do that sort of thing at least di it properly.

17 Oct 2016 18:58:43
Just read a quote from a Brentford forward saying "their lads were scared, if the lost the ball or put it out the fans would boo them, then they would crumble" and I do remember Charlie Adam saying "at villa park if you keep them quiet for 15 minutes the fans turn on them", I personally don't think this is true, heard the team being boo'd after the final whistle loads of times when they've played like a Sunday league team put together with 11 blokes who had never met each other and spoke different languages, but I don't think we get on their backs unless they repeatedly make mistakes.

Professional players should be able to perform at a certain level and be able to cope with some booing, it should not make their ability drop to that of a 5 year old who can't be bothered.

Believable1 Unbelievable0

17 Oct 2016 20:31:08
Too be fair mate! if ANY other team in English football had our home and away record this last five years they would be the same. Football fans boo when players perform badly unless you are a Arsenal fan who boo when they are 2nd in the league lol
Fans pay good money and i think we have won something like 11 home games (Maybe less) in around 100 games.

I spotted a few things yesterday and so will Bruce have. Ayew is our best creative spark and we missed him yesterday. he worries other midfielders and defenders and creates space for us. We lacked pace in the middle of the park and as a result Wolves dominated with quick bursts of speed, they identified that as our weak spot before the game and took advantage perfectly. Jednaik looks like his legs have gone and Tishbola is slow when he gets the ball. Needs to be looked at as does our wobbly defence. Elphick out Baker in and bin Richards he's like a headless Chicken gone mad.

Believable3 Unbelievable1

16 Oct 2016 13:28:02
i reckon he was going to bring ayew on with about 30 to go but typical villa we just got injury after injury,

16 Oct 2016 15:31:54
Yeh I agree with that strikes, I thought exactly the same mate.
I know we were poor but I think that could of changed the game.

16 Oct 2016 16:46:50
If Ayew had played maybe different result.

Agree0 Disagree1

16 Oct 2016 22:38:57
Definitely would have been a different story. Ayew breaks things up and frightens the life out of defenders! Worrying thing is that he is the only player we have who can do it. Ideally we need 3 x Ayew.

Agree2 Disagree1

17 Oct 2016 10:00:07
Ayew was on international duty, so he was still on a jetlag according to what I read. Besides, if he played on Saturday, I don't believe that it would have made much difference.

Agree1 Disagree2

17 Oct 2016 12:27:50
Maybe Ayew would have held the ball up, brought in other players.

Hnch85 I was there v Wolves mate everyone was saying Ayew would have made a difference. Sometimes it's players with individual qualities like him who make things happen. Last night is clear evidence of that, he made the penalty then scored under pressure! Quality.
