Guzan to Middlesbrough. Any idea of the transfer fee? I reckon 2 million. Surely Middlesbrough couldn't expect us to pay them more than that for taking Guzan. Lol.

{Ed001's Note - that made me laugh.}

Like a child obsessing over a toy I want that goalkeeper we were after in January. The guy looked the real deal and leaking goals has been our problem for far too long.

Birmingham mail "small heath times" are on fire at the moment with all sports of trash about Villa, but then what's new! Plenty of linking us to every player and his dog, then "Oh dear villa fans because Villa are set to miss out to Newcastle, Leeds or even that huge club in the north eadt.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jun 2016 12:49:08
Oops -, - huge club in the north east Middlesborough! Lol They really do make it up as they go along. What a bunch of amatures.

29 Jun 2016 13:02:30
Evening Mail - Aston Villa are considering a shock move to bring Andy Gray out of retirement and back to the club as first choice striker but face losing out in the race to either Newcastle or Leeds! It wouldn't suprise me if this soft of thing got reported it really wouldnt!

Another pathetic story from the mail - Revealed Villas championship finnishing spot. Apparently according to football boffins we will fail to get back first time and will finnish 9th! Its it me or do they just hate Villa?! What a load of rubbish can't quite get my breath at how bad they are.

{Ed091's Note - I think 9th is being modest personally. I hope Villa stable the ship..but the championship is not easy.

Agree0 Disagree1

29 Jun 2016 23:54:05
Last season's team lacked about four or five players who would have turned the season around and probably pushed us to 16th or 17th in the prem, if we sign those players now we will be near the top of the championship clearly. There are still players who can make a difference, Amavi, Ayew, Okore if we hang on to them and I think Adama T and Grealish could terrorize the championship! I think we could suprise a few doom merchants with the right signings around that bunch! I predict Play offs all day long ed son.

{Ed003's Note - He is not your son but I agree play off's at least - these are just our opinions lad.}

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2016 22:40:51
Jordan Amavi looks like he could be staying judging by his Twitter activity and the links to full backs dying down, brilliant news in my opinion think he'll prove to be one of our best players next season.

Rickie Lambert? Hope it is just a wild rumour.4 goals in last two seasons. NO thank you.

Jerome onguene being looked at, defender at socheux, only a teenager but apparently a bit of a whippet, represents u19 for france too, seems a gooden.

Believable1 Unbelievable0

Defender sounds good, but will he survive the rough and tumble of championship football and at the risk of being politically incorrect do we need another French prima donna mincing around the pitch?

Will be a test of the new owners commitment to the club to bring the best the championship has to offer to our club.

Agree1 Disagree0

28 Jun 2016 17:59:00
Well if you want to get promoted you need goals, and he is the best championship striker around, really think with him an a few others we would garuantee promotion. It would also show the intent an go out as a warning to everyone else we mean business.

Agree1 Disagree2

28 Jun 2016 19:11:35
Chris, I think making statements like you have about guaranteeing promotion is way off the mark.
Ross Mack would be a great signing for us, and I would welcome him with open arms, it would also show what our intentions are.
Put eleven of the worlds best players in a Villa shirt or any other shirt for that matter and you would be guaranteed nothing in the way of results, players have to gel mate.

Agree0 Disagree3

28 Jun 2016 19:21:39
Chris I couldn't agree more. Will give you a laugh. I read today that brad Guzan is on his way back to the premier league a Middlesbrough want him as their goalkeeper lol. Championship football for them at the end of next season lol. Will we try and get that Eastern European goalkeeper we missed out on in January to replace him?

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2016 22:39:16
Haha Irish villa I reckon I know 32,000 villa fans who would drive that clown to Middlesbrough! And Villadave I said I think Ross McCormack garuantees goals and with a few other signings we could garuantee promotion - still don't see what's wrong with that, you get the right players around him his going to score, if his scoring we are winning, if we are winning we are getting points, it's really simple logic really, and me saying that isn't something too far of the mark.

Agree0 Disagree1

29 Jun 2016 11:44:09
Chris, there is nothing wrong with what you have said at all mate, in fact if you read my return post I am agreeing with you.
It`s just that guarantee bit I was pointing out, and as I said eleven Lional Messi`s would not guarantee didly squat.
And again my point is if you Put eleven of the world`s best players in a Villa shirt or any other shirt you would be guaranteed nothing in the way of results, players have to gel as a team.
Oh and the end of your post, Thank you for pointing out my stupidity.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jun 2016 13:53:42
Nonsense villa Dave, if we had a messi or Ronaldo we would be guaranteed promotion. EG Wales and Gareth bale springs to mind.

Agree1 Disagree0

29 Jun 2016 14:23:04
That is rubbish Finch and you know it.
You are all missing the point here, there is only one guarantee in life, and that is not Villa winning the championship, does not matter who plays for us, it helps to have good players and yes your chances improve, but there is still never a guarantee.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jun 2016 15:34:42
Ok if we sign Messi, Neymar, Suarez, Ronaldo, Bale, Pogba, De Gea, Ibrahimovic, Yaya and Ramos we will have a better chance of promotion than now? I get what your point, but what I'm trying to say is if we make the right signing we can increase the chance of promotion the the point where anything other than promotion would be seriously under achieving.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jun 2016 17:24:11
Spot on chris.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jun 2016 19:27:10
Well villadave I wouldn't of posted something I think is rubbish talk and further more i respect your opinion but am allowed to disagree, so no need to tell me what i'm supposedly thinking. Perhaps you took my words literally. If we had a ronaldo or messi the odds/ likelyhood/ chances of winning promotion would be ALMOST a certainty.
Its been proven in all forms of team sports that one player who is outstanding can carry a team, the team plays to that persons strengths and therefore brings success. We've had it ourselves to a smaller extent over the past few seasons with benteke carrying a very poor team, take him out the equation and the team got relegated.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jun 2016 22:00:42
Finch, you are allowed you opinion, and its fine to disagree nothing wrong with that mate.
And you are correct in what you say about an exceptional player carrying a team to some extent.
In fact I agree with most of what you are saying, the problem is you state the fact yourself in your last post, you have said ALMOST a certainty, that my friend is definitely not a guarantee is it?
So the penultimate word I am disputing is GUARANTEE, and you cannot guarantee anything.
So on that note I will rest my case.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2016 14:59:41
Aston Villa interested in West Brom's jonas olsson and will table an £8 million bid by the weekend.

Believable0 Unbelievable5

28 Jun 2016 17:56:30
8mil for Jonas Olson? What have you been smoking.

Agree2 Disagree0

28 Jun 2016 21:10:29
Olson £3 million tops mate and he isn't good enough either!

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2016 11:01:58
I would be interested in fellow Villa fan's views of Kevin Toner, particularly the many Villa fans with deeper knowledge than me of our fringe and younger players. Do we reckon he will play much next season? Will he grow into a, hopefully, Premier League, quality defender. What is his best position, centre back or full back? He looked okay in a rotten defence towards the end of last season but we have witnessed several false dawns with players before.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

29 Jun 2016 17:58:59
I have waxed lyrical in the past about giving our youth squad a chance to shine and Toner is up at the top of a long list. That said it would not be fair to put him in from the off. He needs to be nurtured and eased in learning his trade with the help of Elphick and Okore. This time next year he will be even better because of the experience.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Jun 2016 22:10:08
Linked with Chris Gunter, Hemmings from Scotland and Danny Williams from reading, would Defo have Gunter if amavi goes, class wing back can get forward an is solid defensively, seems like his got the right attitude/ enthusiasm from watching him for Wales, don't know much about the others, Scottish league a lot easier than prem and championship so don't know about Hemmings but Danny Williams sounds the part from the press reports.

Believable1 Unbelievable1

25 Jun 2016 09:38:17
Hey ChirsAVFC, my first post so go easy on me! The link with Williams is not bad but I don't rate him any better than Westwood, Sanchez, Gardner all of which have pledged to stay. Don't know a lot about Kane Hemmings but he's young, voted their player of season and is cheap at 1m, Gunter is a Right Back is he not? So losing Amavi wouldn't make a difference, be interesting to see what line up he goes with though, Gk still needed and Replacement for Amavi if he goes, I like Elphick and Okore/ Clark for season, out with Lescott, Crespo, and? On Hutton, Richards, Cissokho. Would love to see Assombalonga and Gayle at the Villa, really think Assombalonga is under rated, a real Heskey/ Les Ferdinand type player.

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Jun 2016 11:44:18
Oh I didn't realise, would still be happy with Gunter as replacement for the Bacuna/ Hutton combo we've had the last few seasons. I think he'll go with 2 up top but with Gustede as one of them so think we need to look for a quick nippy striker to partner him like Gabby when he first broke through, Gayle could fit the bill but reckon we'll end up with Bamford or Wilson.

Agree3 Disagree0

25 Jun 2016 14:04:48
Hi villadan4life!

My concern is why people want to replace Hutton?
Bacuna, I agree! But Hutton might not be a cultured footballer, but his commitment and never say die attitude is great for villa, in my opinion he was our player of the season last year! (Some accolade I know! )
And the way he stood by villa through his expulsion he deserves more.

Agree5 Disagree1

25 Jun 2016 14:55:14
Think Hutton would get the recognition he deserves if we didn't keep switching between him and Bacuna, if Hutton was given a stretch of games with the same back 4 I think he'd cement his place as our number 1 right back. However I'd still bring in Gunter to give him some competition to keep his performances the best he can, and if injuries occur Gunter is a lot better than bacuna.

Agree2 Disagree0

25 Jun 2016 15:17:07
I kick a ball on the park with my dog.
He's better than bacuna.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jun 2016 15:38:52
Never met your dog Flackie but wouldn't doubt his ability to megs Bacuna.
Hutton deserves credit for his performances last season when surrounded by the worst shower to wear the shirt. Even more credit for being benched in favour of Bacuna and still remain focused and play the way he did.
Can your dog play left back? Reckon we are in the market for one.

Agree2 Disagree0

25 Jun 2016 16:11:41
Four footed my dog!
To be fair, might match gabby on pace and appetite as well!
He's more loyal than a Klingon, and has no social media.
It's a win win as far as I'm concerned! .

Agree2 Disagree0

25 Jun 2016 19:23:43
Don't shout too loud Flackie Man C and The Bin Dippers will be scouting him and putting a £15 million bid in.

Agree2 Disagree0

25 Jun 2016 19:46:29
Haha fingers crossed.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jun 2016 09:55:40
I rate Huttons commitment and courage but he cannot cross a single ball successfully. Also far too often he's found out of position which with a run of games maybe he'll find form.
Having looked at the predicted lineup for the new season Micah Richards is favoured as right back.

Agree2 Disagree1

26 Jun 2016 14:17:57
Richards should be one of the first out the door, his lack of commitment, and leadership, and unwillingness to play in the correct position is one of the main reasons we are where we are.

And I disagree totally with you on Hutton.
90% of the time he is our only out on the ball,
He is our biggest threat going firward, as was the only one willing to pass forward and attack.
And his poor position is because he had to cover a poor defensive line up, with a keeper with no confidence, thus doing the job of 2, sometimes 3 people.

Poor crosses, can't argue with that, but no worse than anyone else in that side, and his main job should be to defend.

Agree2 Disagree0

26 Jun 2016 15:07:02
Hutton was found out of position because the players around him were stagnant, when he goes forward on the midfield 3 (usually gana, Westwood an veretout) should move across to cover him but they never, when his the biggest threat we've got you can't stop him going forward he just needs better players who can read the game better around him.

Agree1 Disagree0

23 Jun 2016 18:18:55
Just read a rumour that Burnley are preparing a bid for Westwood as a replacement for Joey Barton. But he would have to take a cut to his £35,000 a week salary.
I am willing to chip in to make up the shortfall anyone else want to help make it happen? TAXI!

Believable4 Unbelievable10

23 Jun 2016 18:58:32
Totally unfair!
This guy might not be ronaldo or messi, but he never said he was, he gave all he could, every week, he never hid in games, and always seems to be blamed as the fans escape goat.
Of all the useless crap in that squad, he wouldn't be one I would be pushing out the door first, and in fact, the championship might just be where he was to shine.

The constant criticism he fits is not warranted.
Every club needs a joey Barton in that league, we don't have one, but another club is saying he is a good alternative, and we are once again willing to risk egg on our faces!?

Agree13 Disagree3

23 Jun 2016 20:02:09
Hear hear Flackie, there's plenty of others in our squad that deserve to take a pay cut to clear off to anywhere but B6, if asked, think Westwood would be up for getting us back to where we belong, get off his back and get behind him.

UTV.

Agree8 Disagree0

23 Jun 2016 20:10:23
I don't think he's a great player but he gives 100 % of himself in every game
In short, there are far more deserving causes for your ridicule and scorn.

Agree7 Disagree0

23 Jun 2016 22:27:20
He may give 100% but simply not good enough if rather have a good player get a 7 every game than a not so good player get 5 every game although can fault effort.

Agree3 Disagree2

23 Jun 2016 23:32:25
That's not the point. The point is, he is the constant target for people, and I disagree, I don't think he deserves the siht he gets, and actually, I would rather a team full of Westwoods, giving their all, and working their socks off for the team, even if they don't have the best talent, than a team full of a gabby, Richards, lescotts, and gustedes all the ability in the world, yet no desire, energy or fight.

Agree4 Disagree1

23 Jun 2016 23:43:15
I'm not too fussed whether 'the crab' stays or goes. Combined with sanchez (Carlos) they make 1 decent player.

Agree1 Disagree3

23 Jun 2016 23:44:48
People moan when he plays it side to side but if that's how his being instructed to play an the whole teams doing it he can't just be singled out, always give his all and doesn't stop till the final whistle, think he'll be quality in the championship just as long as they don't let him take corners for gods sake.

Then again think we need to sign some one who can take corners because I don't think any of them can.

Agree3 Disagree1

24 Jun 2016 01:21:58
This is not a personal attack on Ashley and I would agree that there are many others worthy of criticism. The unarguable truth is that he has never shone in a very poor squad of players. I would cheer him for the full 90 if he showed me the ability needed to drag Villa back to the Prem and then keep us there. As yet I have only seen a player with desire and a professional attitude that many others at the club lack. But he also lacks the qualities needed as we look to rebuild and look forward to our bright future.

Agree1 Disagree4

24 Jun 2016 01:28:23
Giving 100% when you are on £35,000 a week isn't enough! Giving your all shouldn't even be in doubt it should just be a bare minimum! For me Westwood along with all our midfielders last season let's games pass them by! For me personally I'd let them all ( Sanchez, Westwood, Vertout, Gana I appreciate spelling may be in correct) go if offers are put to the club for me the only one who is championship ready and proven at that level is Gary Gardner, and I would like to see him give a fair crack! And in all fairness we could have done far worse than beating rangers to Bartons signature.

Agree3 Disagree3

24 Jun 2016 08:53:51
Veretout and Gana won't stay and Sanchez has told press at the Cops America that he will be returning to VP after the tournament. Whatever that means.
Gardener must at least be given a chance. Forest are keen to sign him so why let him go.

Agree4 Disagree0

24 Jun 2016 09:42:22
Westwood is poor so take what we can get, 1 good game in 5yrs.

Agree1 Disagree5

24 Jun 2016 09:47:06
Tell you what, let's sell him for more than we paid for him, replace him with someone comparable or better then 50% of people will be happy, and hope you go and smash it somewhere else Ashley because life's too short to be having people disrespect you for actually trying in a team of poisonous mercenaries who that 50% probably welcomed to our club, end of 😤

UTV.

Agree4 Disagree0

24 Jun 2016 12:22:59
Agree with you Chard none of them are good enough with possibbly Vertout being a "maybe" Quite simply they aren't good enough! Westwood is a worker but never will be åt thé level we need, Sanchez is conning a career in football thé Beach would be a better Place for him to stroll around!

Agree2 Disagree4

25 Jun 2016 09:54:13
Before we start ditching Westwood let's remember Steve Davies, now at Saints and showing real class at the Euros, players like Westwood do what they are coached to do! Remember this guy was playing for Crewe and got thrown into a poor Premiership team and expected to be the next Gordon Cowans or whatever for us! Give him a break, let him be coached by the right team we have in place now and build a half decent, hard working and creative team around him. And lastly if we want to criticise anyone it's players like: Guzan, Bunn, Lescott, Richards, Bacuna (Absolute joke) N'Zogbia, Crespo, Agbonlahor, Sinclair (to a point) Grealish (poor attitude) Sanchez (for doing some awesome midfield work but then poorly giving possession away to often) and does anyone know where Kozak is? Surely a season in the championship would be good for a fit goalscorer like him?

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Jun 2016 10:26:38
I would hope that Bacuna never goes anywhere near VP!
He along with Richards, Lescott, Guzan, Gabby, need to go as they are responsible for the awful attitude on the pitch and off. Add Bunn, Sanchez, Sinclair, Gestede for a lack of talent shown in a claret and blue shirt.
I put it to my fellow long suffering Villa fans that we need hunger and desire in the dressing room. Players who have a point to prove for one reason or another. Players of any age and forgetting their past players who can give us something to cheer about. It could be a Joey Barton type or a Joey Essex just get the right kind of player to wear the shirt.
Thinking about it a few of our current lot make Joey Essex look like a member of MENSA.

23 Jun 2016 15:37:22
Looking around a few sites today and saw us being linked with Ravel Morrison, can't see it being a bad move if he keeps his head straight and works hard.

Believable2 Unbelievable0

23 Jun 2016 18:12:49
The guy is immensely talented but his attitude is awful, he's not worth the risk, we're trying to get rid of morons not recruit more.

Agree4 Disagree2

23 Jun 2016 20:00:55
I agree but depending on who we lose over the course of the window i would take the risk with the chance of RDM and his staff getting the best out of him.

Agree1 Disagree0

23 Jun 2016 20:32:04
Only way I'd have him was on a short term loan, he's only been at kazoo a year so if they want rid of him already there must be a good reason.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Jun 2016 01:37:19
We can only imagine how much of pain or not he is to work with but like guys have said hugely talented! Could we use him as QPR used Tarabate a few years back? Or would it be another bad egg in the dressing room and we need solid hard working functional lads like Burnley went up with! Be interesting to see what Di Matteo opts for.

Being from Ireland hendricks has impressed me a lot, I have him in heart beat to boy just gives it his all leaves everything on the pitch, we're we not linked with robbie Brady last week him and amavi getting up that left wing would be unreal, Delight to have petrov back back a good leader to have around, I want to see us go and make a statement a go for a big name not saying Messi or pogba somebody like ross mccormack to show we mean business early.
