Adama Traore from Barcalona in England talking to us, Liverpool and West Ham.
He is looking at training facilities so if it's a choice between us, a septic pond in Sefton or a waste bin in West Ham I think we have ANOTHER new signing!!!!!

Reports seem to have him Anfield bound; shame if he is as he would be great at the Villa. Odds seem to have suddenly shortened on Townsend again. Hmmmmm

Heard we are interested in Afobe from wolves. I rate him. If it comes off it could be the end of adebayor deal?

Adebayor was in belfry an hour ago

Believable0 Unbelievable0

Perhaps he's thinking of taking up golf instead.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Aug 2015 19:22:47
Perhaps he’s in the Steven Gerard/St Georges Park camp regarding training facilities – not fit for purpose to hone your soccer skills unless it’s got its own championship golf course attached. Still, they could always knock through the hedge to Bodymoor .

Agree0 Disagree0

Apparently it's where all new loanee players stay!!! Hotel gym spa not just a golf course

Just seen Albion have made a bid for Praet. Provided TS has the money, I think this is one he should push through. Make a statement that we're not going to lose out, and that we are well and truly coming out of our hibernation.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

03 Aug 2015 17:13:19
W.b.a linked to praet today hope this all paper talk would love us to sign him, bit fed up with adebayor deal hold up.would be happy if it all fell through

Believable0 Unbelievable0

03 Aug 2015 19:35:07
If he goes to Albion, he'll need an 'e' removing from his surname .

03 Aug 2015 20:49:49
Spot on. Would have to change his first name to 'Total' Preat

03 Aug 2015 11:37:23
Anyone heard any progress on adebayor or berbatov? I wouldn't be overwhelmed with either of these players coming into villa however if ts can get adebayor firing again I think we will be set for a great season with ade leading up front. Just watching tekes goal now and man I miss him already.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

03 Aug 2015 14:34:28
I would suspect that now we have signed gustede we no longer need adebeyor. We have kozak and rudy now who are both strong in the air. Then ayew and gabby, Sinclair to play off them. I'd more understand berbatov now, who could add something different.

Agree1 Disagree0

03 Aug 2015 14:49:16
If it was a straight choice between one or the other I'd sway towards berba. He offers something very different and adebayor is similar to gestede and kozac.
Really looking forward to watching rudy beninteke I think he'll be a big player for us. Utv

Agree2 Disagree1

03 Aug 2015 22:42:16
I hope we make a decent charge up prem table this year. Would be happy with tenth. All these lads are tied into five year deals so the top four can do one if they come sniffing.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Aug 2015 20:07:32
don't know what you guys think about the lescott rumours but personally I would be under-whelmed if he came in. he is too old going forward for what we as a club should be aiming for and he is too slow for the modern game. feel like if he came in it would be almost a panic buy and also the fact he supports the villa yet rejected to join us last year speaks volume in my eyes with how he went to go and join a rival team

Believable0 Unbelievable0

02 Aug 2015 21:56:21
I agree i wouldn't personally want lescott,but i do think you want someone with a certain level of experience at the back

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Aug 2015 15:41:37
I know we were linked to a rejected bid for Lesscot but is there any other links to a new Centre Back as think that's where we need to strengthen.

Believable2 Unbelievable0

02 Aug 2015 17:25:27
No but think we should sign van dijk

Agree2 Disagree0

02 Aug 2015 19:41:45
Hope so. After goals let in against Wolves and Forest I would like to see 2 new defenders.

Agree2 Disagree0

02 Aug 2015 13:00:11
Is Gil injured? TS was speaking highly of him in Portugal, and he doesn't seem to have played in pre-season since.

Believable0 Unbelievable1

02 Aug 2015 13:49:34
He took a knock in the Swindon game a few weeks ago, hopefully he'll be fit for the start of the season.

Agree2 Disagree0

02 Aug 2015 14:39:08
love to know what he sees in him now but never saw when we needed it? 6 months ago we was crying out for creation but he kept playing nzogbia

Agree1 Disagree0

02 Aug 2015 16:07:26
Sherwood said when he came in he had to play a style of football that was effective and could keep us in the league I.E. Very much route one stuff. He didn't have time to mould them to play his way, however I presume now he has Gil is his ideal player!

Agree1 Disagree0

02 Aug 2015 16:35:54
oh right fair enough i guess

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Aug 2015 23:30:50
learner is in talks for the sale of aston villa for £145 million. let's see what happens

Believable3 Unbelievable3

02 Aug 2015 02:04:37
Well I won't say told you so, when all around said that the deal was dead I stuck to my guns and insisted that it was still well and truly alive, not many took me serious even though I gave my reasons for my beliefs so this is not unexpected news for me. Maybe in future people will take a little more notice of the wise old Villa fan. :-) :-)

02 Aug 2015 09:55:18
It's a bit early to start ladling out the humble pie WOVF
The only source for this was a highly, speculative, low on facts (as in, NONE) article in the Star.
Hardly case proven yet mate

Agree9 Disagree0

02 Aug 2015 13:27:15
WOVF, The clubs up for sale. Therefore at some point it will be sold. Does this mean you can play the "I told you so" card whenever a rumour arises?

Agree3 Disagree0

01 Aug 2015 23:20:43
145 million takeover is on to a American group. Will be sorted and done by end if window. I think this is done myself and it's these guys buying the players.

Believable4 Unbelievable4

02 Aug 2015 10:12:29
£145 million for villa are you serious, RL not daft, the only way he would sell for that he keeps the money from CB/FD and the new owners have purchased the new players. RL has spent loads on villa we should show him some respect

Agree4 Disagree0

02 Aug 2015 17:25:26
I agree with villajk. RL deserves a lot of respect and love from the villa fans. This man has put so much into villa and Has Got very little out. I'd understand if he was bleeding the club dry taking all the profits but we keep making a loss yet he keeps putting money in. This is the guy who bought us and gave millions to "the messiah" Martin o'neill who spent millions on average players and stupid wages on average players he then wouldn't play. Martin o'neill who thought it was a good idea to sell Gary Cahill for £5m and buy Curtis Davies for £9m. RL used to be a very wealthy man but a few years ago went through a messy divorce where is now ex wife took half of his money. Yet lots of villa fans just moan and moan. They ask why RL doesn't keep ploughing money into our "beloved club" yet moan if a ticket goes up by a few quid. This may be a very unreasonable rant but it annoys me when some villa fans moan that some American guy doesn't put millions of pounds in to "OUR" club (their words) but then moan about paying the £35 to see "our club" play football. It was only a few years ago that he paid out around £24m on one player who kept us in the premier league that season. How many other premier league chairmen sanction deals like that? He has my respect. VTID. UTV.

Sorry, rant over :)

02 Aug 2015 20:46:52
well put

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Aug 2015 21:19:26
Agree guys, a centre half is an absolute must, Lescott has one year left at Tesco's I think he will come, the lad at Celtic will fit in as well. Right back needed guys, if we can get someone of Amavi's quality we will be tight at the back and have so many attacking options going forward we could well be the surprise package of EPL. Need these Achilles heel positions plugged and would take Joleon in a heartbeat.

Believable3 Unbelievable1

01 Aug 2015 19:57:39
think today shows that we still have problems in defence and I'm not sure whether Micah is the answer for CB. he is strong and good in the air but he has the attacking mentality of a full back which leaves holes in our defence. wouldn't mind seeing villa going for someone like berra(ipswich) or van dijk(celtic)
thoughts???

Believable1 Unbelievable0

01 Aug 2015 20:18:25
Watched van dijk today playing in the 2-0 win. looked class. commanding, organized. an very good on the ball. Would live to see him a VP.

Agree3 Disagree1

01 Aug 2015 20:21:54
Got hit by a bus, hit by a bus.
Julian lescot got hit by a bus.

Would go all out for him, but will miss singing his song!!

Agree2 Disagree0

01 Aug 2015 21:29:42
Agree schmitts, Put Richards at right back and go for Lescott
or van dijk.
Ed you would know more about our chances of getting him ???

{Ed007's Note - I can't help you with Lescott but as for Van Dijk, he could be leaving Celtic but nothing will be done before their European qualifiers are over and Celtic are hoping that CL qualification might sway the big Dutchman, who they value at £10 million, into staying another year. I'm not aware of any Villa interest in him, Southampton and Arsenal were tracking him, Man Utd had a fleeting interest but seen him as a back-up player which VVD wasn't interested in and both them and Arsenal moved on. Recently Everton and Newcastle have been linked with the player but if he leaves Glasgow I still see Southampton as his most probable destination.}

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Aug 2015 22:44:38
Thanks Ed.
I suppose the Koeman factor would be the deciding factor.
Shame he would fit the bill perfectly.

{Ed007's Note - I think you're right about Koeman being there but anything can happen in the next month.}

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Aug 2015 01:04:30
I also watched the Celtic opener and yes Van Dijk looks impressive but we need to be real,SPL is in my opinion championship at best quality,yes they find jems every now and then but better than Baker I suppose ATM ,so buy him as a back up would be option,considering Baker signed Friday new deal (bit surprised) but warrior at heart and no fear but liability and offered new deal,TS must see something we don't off field,we just see (costly) mistakes,on his day is a beast,and right coaches he can be a awesome,butt few and far between,he needs long run in team to be good,bring off bench 80 min I will be digging own grave each time

{Ed007's Note - So Villa wouldn't be a better team with Fraser Forster and Wanyama? Joe Ledley, Ki-Sung Yeung and Adam Matthews would all have got in the Villa team last season.
When you're sitting clinging on at the arse end of the everything that's wrong with football league you've got a cheek looking down you're nose at anyone.}

Agree2 Disagree1

02 Aug 2015 11:04:14
Last season ED007 yes Micky mouse would of got in villa 11,just saying we should be trying to test resolves of the likes of Stoke with Shawcross etc etc,I don't look my nose down at anyone and if Celtic was in prem it would prob be mid table team at best,so my opinion was/is Van DIjk really that good and will he improve us further !! If so great we only want the best for our club don't WE

{Ed007's Note - I don't think the likes of Shawcross is an improvement on VVD, outwith the Top 6 VVD would walk into any other team in England. How often do you watch the SPFL?}

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Aug 2015 11:05:11
I completely agree with you ed. SPL maybe not the best league in the world but the french top division isn't either, yet we seem to be doing all our shopping there.

{Ed007's Note - Cheers for that, Fordy, we know our league isn't the best but if you watch it regularly the games are always tough and hard fought matches and the standard isn't much worse than a lot of EPL games if you stripped away Sly TV's razzamattaz and slutty make-up.
How many boring and monotonous 0-0 wins did Sly show from the EPL last year? I follow Man Utd in England and their match against Hull last season was one of the worst games I watched from ANY league last year let alone the supposed 'best league in the world'.}

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Aug 2015 16:29:13
I totally agree with you here ed.
If you look at it in a different way, the defenders in these 'lesser' leagues as do the goal keepers, get more of a constant work out, as the attacking players in these leagues what they lack in ability they make up in grit and strength.

What I'm trying to say is, the ability to save, read a game, mark a player technically is the same, add to this the need to take a 'knock' and to be aware of the more physical side of things, in my opinion these guys are worth a shout.

I'm sure that made no sense! But I know what I mean!!

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Aug 2015 21:44:10
If this is that defender who picked the ball up in defence, ran through the entire opposition team and scored then I think he could do a job for us :)

Doesn't matter about the club or the league the player is in, the job of the scouts is to pick out the players with the required quality - I wouldn't call Genk a good club playing in a top league, but they gave us Benteke.

Agree1 Disagree0

01 Aug 2015 19:26:51
Will be happy if this happens. A couple of people have tweeted that we're in for Michael Dawson from Hull. I've always liked him. £2m which makes me think it can't be true as he's worth more than that. I thought he was decent at Spurs and John Terry would be crap alongside El mohamedy and Alex Bruce.

Believable1 Unbelievable1

01 Aug 2015 22:44:00
I like dawson,realy good at spurs,i'd go for ryan shawcross,although i don't think stoke would sell him on thd cheap

01 Aug 2015 13:05:58
Having a chat with the lads today about who our best signing is?
Amavi for me

Believable4 Unbelievable0

01 Aug 2015 13:57:35
amavi all day will be the best left back in the league within 2 seasons

Agree0 Disagree1

01 Aug 2015 16:29:55
Sinclair on permanent deal after today evidence

01 Aug 2015 17:36:04
Sinclair already on perm deal,excellent solo effort hatrick :)

01 Aug 2015 17:43:38
Sinclair is on a permenant deal!!!!

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Aug 2015 17:44:39
Amavi is going to be class,what I've watched pre-season and hopes for future 👍 as soon as I did my dream team he was first weeks ago,problem is expect poaching from the top teams in BPL and Europe to come sniffing next summer it's just the way it is these days until we become a force again 😀

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Aug 2015 19:33:06
I watched gueye at Walsall. And I know it's only Walsall but he looked sharp and broke up almost every play that Walsall put together. He was busy and looked the part one minute breaking up the play and then next minute having a shot from the edge of the box. I think Veretout will be great tho. Ridiculous amount of assists last season in France. What is great is that we all have different opinions which must mean we've bought some quality for a change.

Agree1 Disagree0

01 Aug 2015 12:57:42
So is it ade or berba we will sign?! Surely not both.

Just a decent attacking right back needed now and I think this could be a great season for villa.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

01 Aug 2015 13:20:57
We've just signed one

01 Aug 2015 13:41:00

01 Aug 2015 21:11:39
I think means crespo??

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Aug 2015 12:19:43
Anyone got any news on outgoings? Need to get cissokho, n'zogbia and senderos off the books for sure. Hopefully tonev as well.

All this activity has been great! Genuinely think we could be a force this season. Looking forward to seeing gestede, apart from what I've read, don't know too much about him.

Don't want adebayor and berba.one or other. Embolo, soriano and townsend please tim :-)

Believable0 Unbelievable0

01 Aug 2015 09:12:06
Not that i'm complaining, but surely that's the benkete an delph money spent now. is randy funding these moves or have I miss something.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

01 Aug 2015 09:55:00
I said ages ago Villa wouldn't spend more that £10m on a player, (officially I'm still right 😁) BUT I am very suprised by how much we have spent in total.

I genuinely thought the money was only going to be £30-£35m in total and about 5 players coming in but I am so happy I'm wrong.

Whoever is funding these transfers, is making us very happy Villa fans.

I hope it's new buyers, but if it's Randy we all need to show him some praise.
He obviously still cares about the club!

Agree5 Disagree0

01 Aug 2015 11:43:35
Let's remember the enhanced tv money. From 45 mil to 90. Which is why many teams are spending.

Agree0 Disagree1

01 Aug 2015 11:55:34
£39,600,000 spent.

£40,500,000 sold. (Minus the sell on fees whatever they are)

Not my calculations, found elsewhere.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Aug 2015 11:56:18
Enhanced TV revenue's don't come into effect till 2016/17 :)

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Aug 2015 11:56:26
I think it works out to about £7m being left to spend after all sales. Also i think the enhanced TV money comes into affect at the end of the season

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Aug 2015 13:37:13
£7m left after all the business we've done. Happy days!
Praet for £7m, job done!

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Aug 2015 09:10:29
Other rumour I've heard is that loan deal for adebayor is held up over RL and TF not overly keen on him and player = games for the season, maybe a bit of boardroom wrangling going on between TS and RL first time

Believable0 Unbelievable1

01 Aug 2015 09:47:50
I've heard it's Daniel levy holding up the deal, which is more likely as he's known to get the best deal for him

Agree2 Disagree1

01 Aug 2015 09:01:40
Just heard on the news that again there are hold ups and chaos around the Euro tunnel at Calais. This is apparently due to all of Tim Sheerwood's European signings trying to clear customs before start of PL!!!!

Wish I'd posted that

Ashley Young guys, he's coming back.

Personally I would take him, on his day he is brilliant.

I have died and gone to heaven because our spending ain't stopping, Joleon from Tesco's, and another right back and we are PREPARED.

UTV

Believable1 Unbelievable7

01 Aug 2015 09:28:07
Can't see it. He'll stay at manuu agree about a new right back. Confused about centre half now baker staying, can't keep 5 ch happy. Would like a winger too UTV

Agree1 Disagree1

01 Aug 2015 09:04:54
I can't see that happening TBH under LVG his Man U days re-ignited and hugely stated by LVG himself he was to keep speed,creativity,skill in his squad,why would they sell one of last seasons consistent performers :)

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Aug 2015 10:13:24
I heard he will go to LFC on £110k per week and makes sense with CB up front need the service, can't see him coming back to us unless we have a new owner in waiting who will pay those wages?

Agree0 Disagree2

31 Jul 2015 19:55:38
Villa to bid for 20 year old Morgan Sandon. Another good young french player with a eye for a goal and can play and tackle. Be another good addition.

Believable3 Unbelievable1

31 Jul 2015 18:45:35
Where have you seen this? If this is true I think he would probably be our best signing. He was incredible in the champions league last year.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Jul 2015 19:49:03
I have seen this to. And another midfielder from France. Starting to think ts snapping up all the young talent about for a strong future as Chelsea do.
