Would anybody offer Gabby Agbonlahor a deal? Steve Bruce has said that he will decide if Gabby gets a new deal but his gota work hard for it. I say no but thanx for the games against Birmingham.

I am gutted to say that because on his day his good but he don't do it to much. I mean if we just left hogan up there we wouldn't of beat blues but gabby came on showed desire and killer touch.

Yes, but only if he takes a massive pay cut.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Apr 2017 09:02:25
Yea but pay should reflect his place in the squad, and he has to remain hard working, not just because his coming back from injury.

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Apr 2017 12:00:55
Since the bruce arrived gabby changed and worked hard in training, its just a pity that he did his hamstring.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Apr 2017 13:22:26
Absolutely not - his record has never been prolific. If he was at another club right now and the question was 'would you buy him' I don't think anybody would want him to sign. Even on a minimal salary, I'd rather he didn't take up a squad place and reduce minutes for the likes of RHM.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Apr 2017 21:01:45
No way at all. He's scored one goal in 14 months for chrissake
Plus his unprofessionalism is unforgettable and unforgivable.
Thanks for Sunday. Now on your way.

A few journo's saying we're in the market for at least 1 if not 2 centre-halves, and brucey wants a vocal leader on the pitch, names mentioned are flint from bristol city and a centre-half from barnsley (can't remember his name), but as usual norwich, derby and sunderland are allegedly taking a gander too!

You won't go up buying Barnsley players we are ment to be a big club buy players from the premier league look at newcastle tonight richie came from the prem so did a few others we need quality we need to think big! Steve Bruce brought loads of players in january and not one of them players are like wow.

I know people don't like RDM but the players people say are good are kodjia jedinak chester nobodys talking about Steve bruces players because they aren't as good simple as that bruce has to buy better or we are going know where.

Newcastle had a picture because they went up tonight Aston Villa had a picture because we beat a awful Birmingham city side come on I am not talking about 1 game we have got to get a lot better those of you thinking this same team will go up next year are wrong. To go up you almost have to win home and away most weeks that's almost every single week a win i can't see it!

Agree1 Disagree2

25 Apr 2017 08:28:19
Wtw - on the face of it, buying quality proven makes sense, but not always, its the system that matters, if the manager can ingrain that on the players then that's half the battle, case in point is reading, tell me how many internationals they've got, how many who are a household name, man alive, i think they're main striker is kermogant (i think that's right), and he's just turned 35.

when jaap stam went there, their first 6 to 8 games were dire, but he persevered with his system and hey presto, plaudits all around, with players who aren't exactly being scouted by barcelona, i like stam, he's my manager of the season, look at allardyce, get a system in place and boom, palace have gone from relegation fodder to 12th on the prem.

i'm not saying allardyce's system is pleasing to the eye, just that palace have one, look at how benteke has flourished, so for me, this summer brucey bonus needs to put a system in place, and stop flip-flopping between zonal and man to man, the players get confused (being a bit thick doesn't help matters though! ), and the results are there for all to see.

so the question remains simple, even the doctor has alluded to it, get a system in place, stick with it and don't pfaff about with it-so in essence, if stam can manage to 'polish a turd' (to coin mendaxs' somewhat delicate expression! ), then with our players, surely it should be a whole lot quicker and easier to indoctrinate?

RDM brought Kodija, Chester, Jedinak, Adomah, Tshibola, McCormack, De Laet, Gollini and Elphic. So out of 9 players he got 4 right, you can't just state the best 3 players he brought and claim he was quality, 17 million pounds worth of his signings are out on loan and currently giving us little to no resale value, RDM was a chancer, played 5 strikers at times, and then wondered why we couldn't defend and had the mental strength of a riveta.

So far Hogan looks to be more the part than McCormack, take your pick of Lansbury or Hourihane as they both show Tshibola for what he is, an athlete an not a footballer. Johnstone has been brilliant last fees games and had to come in because Yet another of RDM signing proved to be an arrogant little pre madonna. And Taylor has been top draw since coming in.

Bjarnson looked good when playing but is obviously crocked so put him in the same category as De Laet. And Bree as a right back looks like a solution to a long standing problem. Your moaning now for the second time about the Derby, let them take a picture, let them plaster it all over the city, you must not know much about what that game actually means the way you talk about it.

Give Bruce a pre season with these players and get a few more of his own in, then judge! We've picked up 51 points from 33 games over a whole season that's 72 points, putting us in the play offs. However next season there's no AFCON so two of our best players won't disappear, next season Bruce will have a whole preseason with this team an a few others.

Stop constantly looking for the smallest things to moan about (a picture, an ex managers signings) and back the team!

25 Apr 2017 11:12:04
I hope you are right mate because the money we have wasted this season is stupid. I mean you mentioned system hogan wasnt brought to play in our system he was brought because he was available like ross McCormack was aswell Villa play 4 5 1 some call it 4 3 3 but adoma and grelish aren't strikers so to me its 4 5 1 with kodjia lone striker where does hogan fit in? Must buy better because an iam being serious now to go up automatic you need to win home and away almost everyweek. 90 points is usually the target.

When Gabriel agbonlahor scored yesterday James Chester went to celebrate with gabby only to be stopped by Paul Robinson who punched and kicked him to the ground. There is a video that has been sent to the FA. The FA of slaughtered Aston Villa this season by suspensions and bans surely Paul Robinson should be banned for the rest of the season please take a look it was disgusting Dr Tony as even commented on it.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

24 Apr 2017 16:12:22
If it was one of their better players I'd love this, but I hope he don't get banned, he's awful an should he keep being selected he'll relegate them. Hopefully as usual the FA don't do the right thing an they don't investigate it.

23 Apr 2017 23:39:09
Always great to beat the Blues, but if fans and Steve Bruce think they're going up next year with that team there having a laugh we are just not good enough lansbury he hasn't scored or set 1 up his got a pass rate of 44 percent which is not good enough.

hoolahan can't even get in the team hogan needs to play in a two a lot of bruces signing are just not good enough james bree doesn't look a player. Yes great win today welldone to the boys but they are a long way off going up and we spent a fortune. Big summer we need prem quality not championship players!

Oh and for Blackburn i think we should just play the way we usually do away this season and birmingham city will be no more! Sorry to be harsh but I call it how I see it!

Believable0 Unbelievable1

24 Apr 2017 09:29:52
Wtw, you're right mate, that hoolahan hasn't done it for us, oh no wait, he's at norwich! have you been on the baby shams again guvnor!

Lol sorry people it was when i was talking to the phone it pronounced it wrong, but i am sure you know i meant hourihane. I just believe we need to buy better and work hard otherwise promotion is out the question.

SB has stated that there will be a big clear out in the summer.
To keep it short "who will he keep? "
This list will be shorter than "who can go? "
We must find a way of supplying our strikers, Hogan must feel very lonely.
Too many mercenaries taking the money and giving nothing back.
Apparently there's £40m in players on loan and possibly a similar amount in players at VP plus dare I say Kodjia.
He looks good, is good but is he a team player?

Believable0 Unbelievable0

23 Apr 2017 22:19:42
Not sure if you have been reading previous posts! Its all old ground, myself and others have been saying it for weeks about Kodjia, he is a good player and we need him no doubt, but team player No.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Apr 2017 00:03:29
He scores goals.

24 Apr 2017 13:19:32
So does gabby.

But Kodjia scores one every other game

and Gabby scores one every other season!

Sunday I think will be tighter than people think due to the fact that we cannot score without Kodjia, but predict Birmingham will not finish with 11 men and Villa to scrape a result 1-0.

looking forward to summer deadwood sale - Bunn, Kozac, Richards, Flabby Gabby, Gardner, Tisbola, Sanchez, McKormac, Vertout, Gil. Amavi. should raise £15 million. who should SB get in? assuming he keeps the rest of the squad including the kids, i think we need a centre half, left back, back up defensive midfielder, Keeper, wide right / winger.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

20 Apr 2017 20:40:09
Apart from gardner every one else on that list is spot on. let's get rid of the lot of them. also agree with what we need coming in. for far to long we have held on to players who don't deserve to wear the shirt.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Apr 2017 22:43:07
You got some figures behind that mate? We signed Veretout for 12 million, and he's had a stormer of a season in the French league, shouldn't be making a loss on him.

Gil in today's market is about 10 mil surely, what with having a decent season for deportivo. Sell 12 players and bring in 5, leaves us ridiculously short when injuries come (look at the injury list from January / Christmas) and then a transfer window like that leaves the team not knowing where they stand with wholesale changes not what we need again. 3 or 4 will do fine, quality additions who Bruce wants early in the window so a full preseason, sell a few who won't be involved at all as Bruce sees fit.

Next season is one of the biggest in the clubs history in my eyes, last season we can flex our muscles in the transfer windows before FFP really starts to play a role in our dealings, should we fail to go up next year I can't see it happening for another 4-5 seasons. We get one chance at it, we can't afford to feck it up in the summer at the first hurdle!

Agree1 Disagree0

21 Apr 2017 13:18:40
Agree with what you said about next season chris, ffp and the need to put it all together in our push to go up. As you say we can, t afford to cock it up. Like yourself mate just want the best for our great club, I thought when we went down that it would take us three to four years to get back where we belong. Hoping of course that we would do it in two or three, Its such a tough league to get out of. Next season is so critical .

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Apr 2017 19:04:20
Prime example of the state of the media, yesterday came out that McCormack hasn't been training for 3 weeks or left his house for 3 weeks, everyone had a comment on it (me included),

comes out today mccormack's had 5 cysts removed from his mouth in an operation yesterday, along with pictures which look horrific, looks like he's had 20 rounds with mike Tyson. Just shows how they put a spin on anything to make a story out of it.

Along with this he put out a statement of sorts, saying how his dream move to avfc never worked out and he wants to come back refreshed in the summer and make it work.

He was useless and overweight when he was here but if his fit, ready and committed it saves us signing a new striker and he'd definitely be able to play with Hogan IMO.

19 Apr 2017 20:01:53
Your having a bubble chris, if he can't be arsed when all the club and fans were willing him good vibes, you now think mcshortfarce has changed his ways? lmao he know realises no one wants him and he's on a good thing with us and with all the extras in his contract he can just sit tight and earn at least another 7 million out of us.

i wish you were right chris and he wanted to turn over a new leaf, but he's a potential poor mans' george best (and i don't mean on football terms), he's tainted and needs to be booted out before he stuffs up the changing room dynamic-to me, he's a 'wrongun', bin him lively.

Do we take the chance with mcCormack, he was lazy, unfit, would not train, was a bad influence, would not opologise for his behavour. when he did play he was crap. He now wakes up and smells the coffee, and we are meant to welcome him back with open arms. He is proliffick when on form and fit but with his attitude do we really that. Think we should get rid and cut our losses. Get someone in with the right attitude and the focus for next seasons big push. He had his chance and blew it, We can, t afford to carry people. which is why i hope amavi and some others are shown the exit.

Agree1 Disagree0

20 Apr 2017 15:51:06
Amavi is an asset at left mid, never will be a left back.

Agree0 Disagree1

20 Apr 2017 22:37:37
I hope your right chris about amavi on the left of midfield, but at the moment all he's good for is keeping the hairdressers busy putting highlights in his hair, obviously it makes him stand out even more, what a numpty-if liverscouse come back in with an offer over 15-20 million, bit their hand off double quick-and we can all say 'coz he's worth it (not) '

Sometimes Bruce's team selections baffle me

What was Amavi doing on the pitch, he was Readings 12th man on Saturday gifting them free balls and yet he keeps his place today

What about GREEN, where was he?

I'm so glad they're not going up with this squad s a skeleton to rebuild on, we would get slaughtered v& bounced straight back down again

With Bruce's teams and selections, how the hell has he managed to gain promotion on 4 previous occasions?

Agree0 Disagree6

17 Apr 2017 17:33:59
To be honest from what I've seen of Championship football even the auto promoted teams will struggle next season and I include Newcastle (if they go up) .

Agree5 Disagree1

17 Apr 2017 18:40:24
Nothing like a few defeats to bring out the most fickle of villa fans. Greens injured for one and we played the game for 70 minutes with 10 men, and for 60 of them we was no more than 1-0 down, one of them from a free kick for a foul that anyone on the planet sees isn't a foul.

Bruce rolled the dice and brought on an attacker to try an get something at 2-1 in the 75th minute, it backfired and they scored another. Had he not rolled the dice you same people talking absolute nonsense here would be still talking nonsense about how he didn't make subs and wouldn't risk it.

With 10 men the tactics are simple, sit behind the ball, be organised and break when you can - we did, and we did well for 50 minutes, got ourselves back in to it, went back 1 down from a poor decision from the ref.

If your going to moan don't do it for the sake of it, have a bit of substance and evidence behind what your saying.

Agree5 Disagree0

17 Apr 2017 21:13:26
It would been a differnt match 11 v 11 ref had a shocker today. We need 3 class players its not about this season its about next season for us. I think next season we will go up in the playoffs with the right 3 signings.

Well you're half way there.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Apr 2017 21:13:45
Not really surprised by today, we have had our moments, but overall we have not played that well as a team. We have grafted out results, without playing well. when you see teams like Brighton, we are so far behind.

The difference is these top sides, have had 1-2 seasons building their sides . I know we have spent big money, but more needs to be spent. The money we have paid out for a midfield, that can't hold on to the ball. Our passing is hopeless, if you can't pass, you can't get any control.

What was wrong with Amavi today, he just couldent do anything at all . Got to get Taylor back for next game. Brucie has to set his mind on a 4-4-2, has to get Hogan up front, not as a winger but up front. We know that Hogan can score goals, give the kid a chance to do it.

We need Hogan and kodjia to start playing together, to get an understanding, together they could be leathal . We need Landsbry and Hoorihane, to get back to the combative players they where, the reason we bought them.

So going back to where I started, Brucie and the team have lots of hard work, to get us up to the top teams level. Onwards aand Upwards, Villaforever.

Believable2 Unbelievable0

16 Apr 2017 11:33:11
Davedean, I agree 100% mate, I said all this 2 maybe 3 weeks ago about our midfield and Hogan/ Kodjia and got a very mixed response.
It is all about opinions and we all see things differently, but in this case I don’t think we are far off the mark and I would argue the case wholeheartedly.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Apr 2017 14:34:29
We're much a better team than when Bruce first took over, but have the one same problem, not taking chances. Missed a few sitters yesterday, but completely fell apart in the last half hour. But in all fairness reading are 4th and for 6minutes it looked like we was the team in the play offs. Amavi cost us two goals alone, don't understand what's happened to him.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Apr 2017 21:50:47
Id be inclined to give Hepburn murphy a go at this stage in the season.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Apr 2017 09:49:16
Need to drop amavi and bacuna and like u say play 2 up top as strikers which is what they are and green in team too as Jack is rubbish God knows what system but need jedinak hourihane and lansbury too.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Apr 2017 20:45:16
Am hearing that everton like the look of sam johnson, and if barclay ends up going to man utd, they'd like like him included as part of the deal, also hearing the toffees, southampton and stoke are keeping a watching brief on james chester, before i get asked where i read this, i didn't, someone told me.

just as they did about kodjia a few weeks ago, what i want to know is how come steve walsh seems so 'lucky' in identifying players and their buy-out' clauses, its almost as if he has a crystal ball or something?

Believable0 Unbelievable3

13 Apr 2017 11:46:19
Sam johnstone is just a 6 out of 10 gk. chester is decent but to be honest Villa have had a lot better the best player Villa have is Kodjia with out him we are nothing. So far hogan has been a flop due to injuries I know everybody thinks we will walk the league next year but i still see few players letting us down lansbury another 6 out of 10 guy not good enough so far we are to reliant on kodjia. Hopefully Bruce brings in better players to help. Manager score 8 out of 10 chairman score 8 out of 10.

Agree2 Disagree3

11 Apr 2017 15:27:16
Thoughts on Hourihane being dropped for Bacuna? Can see why he was brought in against QPR because Hourihane ran his socks off against Norwich 4 days prior, however keeping him out against a poor Burton team where he would have been ideal to get around Hogan was odd.

Bruce kept mentioning in January getting a proper box to box midfielder with a real engine, and at the moment Bacuna's the only one we got - that's the only reason I can come up with why he's kept Hourihane out the side, maybe Bruce likes it when the Holte End shout "hit him" whenever bacuna playing and a lino gets a decision wrong now. Although bacuna hasn't done much wrong since being back, apart from a few tired swipes at shots against QPR.

Believable1 Unbelievable1

11 Apr 2017 20:00:54
I think they're both as good as each other on their day mate. I would say both have to improve if we are to go up midfielders like them should be hitting at least 10 goals a season.

Agree1 Disagree2

12 Apr 2017 20:53:49
I think it was last week chris that I said our midfield players are not doing their job as effectively as they had been at their previous clubs, I still think that is the case.
We got Hourihane to score and create, the truth of the matter is he has not done that, I have no doubt it will come in time, he needs help of course, Lansbury is also at fault he has not performed as we know he can.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Apr 2017 22:25:22
True Dave you did, for players who had such high figures at other clubs they haven't brought it to us yet. But from what I've watched I'd back Hourihane to be closer to bringing goals and assists sooner than Lansbury, what you reckon? He just seems to be in and around the box a lot more to me, and he could of really benefitted Hogan saturday, we struggled because we couldn't get anyone near him to support.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Apr 2017 11:41:22
Yeah I go along with that chris, I think it will improve as we gel as a team, the signs are there.
I think out of the two Hourihane offers more by way of a goal threat and will get better in a settled side.
As you say I think Hogan will be better with more creative support and was missing that for sure last week.

How much is kodjia worth? not that he's for sale, but i say £30 million.

Believable0 Unbelievable1

10 Apr 2017 20:26:05
In today's market 30million is about right, Dr Tony seems like a Daniel Levy type tho and should he go I wouldn't be surprised if it was for 35/ 40million.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Apr 2017 21:46:55
I'm with the Doc.
Start at £40m and play hard ball!

Would not sell Kodjia for less than 50 million.
