Anyone notice a low key game at Coventry involving ex Villa players and a team from Shanghai at the weekend? Lots of talk about good business and football links between Birmingham and China? Something in the wind? A Shanghai company also owns MG at Longbridge.

If Cleverly wants to sign for Everton because they will pay him more then I wouldn't want him at villa anyway. If he can't shine at Manchester United (or England) then he is unlikely to set the world alight at villa. Shame we haven't signed anybody, but the most significant fact is keeping hold of Vlaar. Plus that's a real sign of a player that has loyalty. Onwards and Upwards.

Villa and PL are absolutely right not to cave in to Cleverley's wage demands. £70k-£80 a week? The kid should be grateful we've met his transfer fee in the first place because no one else had, and offered him a chance of regular football to get his career started again. Money obviously a more important factor to him and at the moment we need people where playing football comes first.

Unexpectedly Cleverley appears to value himself more than united, villa or Everton do. Now he can sit on the bench at man u and run his contract down.

01 Sep 2014 15:35:03
If I remember correctly Canales also spent some time on loan at QPR. An exciting AM with a decent free kick. Great potential and the right age I'd say now for villa. If I had to choose between cleverly and Canales I would opt for Canales for sure. If it got to midnight and villa had signed Defoe and Canales I would be extremely happy and would have to thank Lambert / Lerner - fingers crossed!

Canales deal going through. my mate in Spain telling me that the spanish website Marca are reporting its done.
I don't understand it though. because Cleverly's deal is hanging in the balance because of wages. 4 players are leaving because of it. so where will Canales & Cleverlys wages come from??

Conales has never left Spain, plagued by injuries after his move to Real Madrid. Not a prolific goal scorer but a real talent, comfortable on the ball and can take on a player or 3. Real excited about this one!

Pl has made a last min move to bring in Sinclair off city and Jay spearing off Bolton as the cleaverly deal looks unlikely unless it's a loan. Wages are a problem. Also asked about colman off Everton but don't see that deal coming off. I've also herd a rumour that if we could pull it off a big money signing for the number 9 shirt could happen. The name in the frame is wilfrid bony from Swansea in a 17 mil deal.

Richards is a quality player just hasn't been given a chance in the Manchester city team. He would only cost about £2-4 million but it is just his wages and Sinclair wouldn't be a bad shout either.

Cjr

Ed030{Ed030's Note - I don't rate Richards, He's a big physical presence but his positioning, tackling and technical ability are not the best. However, He is versatile and is better than any current options so it wouldn't be a terrible transfer. }

Just a couple of rumours.
Lerner re-energised about villa and is ready to push on with the club.

Then there's a rumour that Villa have in fact being sold hense the cash injection Sanchez (possible Cleverley) and will be announced when the window closes (don't see why that matters)

The Villan

(12)
(11)

I can only imagine that the reason a sale would be kept quiet is to avoid having to pay ridiculous money for players just because other teams know you have money to spend. As it goes, I seriously doubt we have been sold but Lerner must have realised that he has to invest to keep us in the prem to make us seem desirable to potential buyers. The Championship doesn't appeal to fans or owners/potential owners.

MasterVillain

(10)
(5)

I disagree. A perfect time for a buyer to invest in villa would have been this summer. Three brushes with relegation for a club like villa would have been the ideal time for a perspective owner to come in and purchase villa on the cheap (in relative terms). Unless of course somebody with billions wishes to come in and just chuck money at the club, in which case all economics go out of the window. If we have a decent season now (say, we finish top half) what would you expect learner to value the club next season? We would be no more appealing to a perspective new owner than we were this summer.

Woodsville55

(10)
(3)

The economics of a takeover would mean that any buyer would have to prove that they can "pay" the agreed amount.
Remember the recent sale of a major club?
I think that it was discovered that they had not got all of the money and were going to pay back a loan from money that came in through the commercial side of the business.
A billionaire cannot come straight in and spend silly money as under the fair play rule a club can only invest money taken in, not just because the owner wants to buy a player.
This actually favours the current top 6/7 clubs that have sold players for huge money and are then able to use that money plus what comes through the tills.
Presently AVFC are not selling players, they are giving them away, and not much money is coming through the tills.
I don't like Lerner but he is operating under "strict" rules layed down by Platini who was conned by the big clubs into setting the spending rules. The big clubs were already taking in huge money so the knew that they were Ok under the spending rules.
The lesser clubs, our AVFC, have to improve commercially to generate money and perhaps that is why we have changed our "money man" taking him from Gunners.
Even though Gunners have not won anything they have earned £30/50m just by getting into the group stages in Europe and that is where a club must get to spend big money.
Arguably if we sold Vlaar & Big Ben and got in £40m+ we could spend £70m+.
But that scenario we don't want to see!!

Oldvillan

(4)
(9)

I agree that this summer would have been a perfect time for a new owner as they would have had time to assess the team and then buy the needed players. But I don't believe we would have been cheaper because of the recent struggles in the league; we all heard that Lerner still wanted £200 million for the club, probably because he wants to try and recoup some of the money he has spent and because he still views villa as a big club. In terms of history, tradition and fan base I agree with this but on field we are not a big club. I think a club like Everton are more appealing as they wouldn't cost too much, they have a great history and they are performing at a much higher level and have a strong base that they can build on. Should we become a consistent mid table club I can see Lerner valuing us at £250 million and price wise we will be less appealing but all owners are businessmen nowadays and they want results with as little investment as possible; we'll need less money if we're mid table than we would if we were in the lower echelons of the league.

MasterVillain

(4)
(3)

My main worry with the whole takeover and money to spend is this;given the track record of lamberks tranferdealings to date would any real investortrust the man to get the right signings in, or would we field eleven lunars evey week he could well blow the onlyrealnce of propelling the club to where we dream it could go, improving the stadium, record attendancies- anyone remember 1981 the ground bounced on its foundations, EVERY

warvillian

(24)
(5)

Why are posters being disrespectful to PL?
The guy has been told what to do and is doing it. He has not had much money to spend and to some what has bought in some good signings.
Vlaar, Okore and Benteke are all excellent buys, Cissoko & Sanchez are still to be seen and yes most of the others are questionable.
Buy when you have instructions that you must buy cheap and develop you can't shop at W'rose you have to go to Al. I and sometimes you get a bargain.
When name calling I maintain that you should look in a mirror first and see what you see, sometimes it is yourself.

Hi Oldvillian you must love PL its not just his buys its tactic, have you seen a game at villa park were we have played well under PL and Okore has yet to prove himself

villajk

(4)
(4)

I don't have any "feelings"for PL, I simply believe that he has followed the directive given to him from "above. " We are not the only team that you could direct your comments about play, try ManU at present, but we have played some good football at times. I know it is not what we want and it will not be until sufficient money be given to the manager regardless of who it might be, but at the moment it is PL. Try and put yourself in his place. Doing what he is instructed yet having fans screaming for him to go. When he was at Canary land they played some good stuff and many fans were delighted when he came to AVFC. I like to think that given the opportunity with real money, he may well produce the goods.

Bid reported (by Sky) for Cleverly. Bid accepted and believed to be around £8m. Nothing to say personal terms are agreed but sounds promising and suggests there is money for a decent player at least!
Add another wide player with Grealish coming in to the team and things could be looking up!

I AM FED UP OF HEARING THE PATHETIC simperings over grealish, he's a player who could disappear int the same mediocre place that previous young players were expectedstop banging on about him, let him grow and if he is the messiah people IMAGINE he is all the good, but based on what I've seen of the boy, and I've seen him a lot, he is a long, long way off being half a good player, people talk on here about him as though he has 200 appearancies, 100 goals and 40 odd caps to his name. in short, leave him alone

WARVILLIAN. I agree 100% with your comments about Grealish. The problem we have is converting our academy/youngsters to the "next level". when I say that I mean your Walcott/Bale/Shaw where you get the big bucks for them. and we don't have anyone anywhere near that level. To be honest I can't see anything coming out of our academy for a while :(

villajk

(17)

I think I'm probably going to be in the minority here, but I really do not get the fuss that a lot of villa fans make over Gardner. I know he was injured last year, but he is 22 now. In this day and age that is old enough to have broken into the first team by now. And I would say if he hasn't done it by now then he probably won't. I've seen him play and yeh, he looks ok. But if he was good enough, he would've been pushing hard for the first team before last season when he was injured. PL wouldve given him the chance. Grealish is 18 and is breaking into the first team bit by bit. And not looking out of place I might add. we've had so many false dawns with youth players being overhyped and overrated, craig gardner was the same, and don't forget the Moore brothers! Gary, in my opinion, is the same. He might carve out a career as a dependable premier league player eventually, but he isn't the next big thing that most villa fans seem to be pinning their hopes on.

Lovespud

(17)
(5)

Come on jk, PL is not an person but he is the manager of AVFC and is doing a reasonable job under severe restrictions on finance.
Senderous was picked by BBC pundits into the prem. team of the week so he cannot be that bad.
If you were a Man U supporter I could understand your attitude but it is a bit early to be slagging off the manager because he allows a talented player out on loan to give him game time but he will be back come January.
Wake up, smell the flowers, as at the moment they are quite sweet.

Oldvillan

(12)
(8)

What a load of shit, at least get facts correct.
Fulham wanted, but couldn't afford.
Senderos was in Italy, and Richardson, when fit was one if a few bright sparks.
Gardener is only there until jan, purely for game time.

We are villa fans, grow up and get behind the team. If you can't do that, at least give us the respect if actually doing your home work, and not just talk wank

The loan move makes sense in my opinion. The boy needs match time. If he can prove himself in League 1 then he will come back a better player. I also thought it was only a 4 month loan.

Agree love spud but villajk what do you want more from villa at the moment. It sounds like your expecting us to win the league or something. Westwood is a much better player than Gardner, in fact how often has Gardner actually played? Maybe 5 starts as a guess. I don't see how you can call Paul lambert an person when you have seen him in a few games and he sees him every day in training. All lambert sis trying to do is help his career get back on track by giving him some game time. Us and tottemham are the only tea, s not to have conceded and we have 4 points from our first two games. AND YOU STILL can't FIND ANYTHING GOOD TO SAY. Fans like you really do make me laugh sometimes

Gardner is a quality player and will be but the first thing is for him to get some consisent competitive football under his belt. After he has done that he can think about breaking into the Villa team. He has had too many injuries during the start of his career but Brighton could be the right step for him and when he comes back he may become a better player and learn from his experience there.

I agree with this loan move for gardener. This will really help him step up by getting some playing time. Look at how it helped players like Sturridge, wellbeck and courtois.

I do know that Stoke didn't use him last season and did pretty good. Another castaway? Is he a box to box midfielder? Enlighten me please. We need a real creative fiery spark to light up the run into the final third imo and I don't see this guy comin close to that even with my limited knowledge of him. Wheres our Argie Bargie attacker we were hearing about? Up the Villianous!
PS Is Tom Fox a spy? :)
We need Chadli and/or Holtby or Lestienne. Another Belgian would cement Benteke to us giving him something to mull over when agents come a calling.
UpTV!

hi ed seeming alan hutton has played well in the 2 league games so far this season do you guys think he deserves a long run in the team now and I know for certain how good he was at his best for rangers I remember when scotland played italy a few years back I have never seen anyone get as kicked in that game as much as alan hutton did the italians were scared of him going forward.

As far as hutton goes he showing more than lowton did last season, why did we sell Warnock just after being voted player of the season, maybe eft back would have been better covered and we'd not have had to watch the likes of Bennett instead

Brighton to sign Joe Bennett on season long loan. As happy as i'd be to see him go please don't let this mean we'd get Riise seems pointless!

The Villan

I'd hope Cissokho first choice with Richardson as backup and Stevens for emergencies. REALLY don't need Riise.

Prob

(11)
(4)

I'm still not to sure if we are actually in for him, all the reports say he said we had been in touch along with other teams, but he hadn't had any firm offers, believe into it what you will I personally don't think it will happen

JFVilla4life

(3)

I agree, we may have enquired about Riise before we bought Cissokho, not needed now. Riise probably desperate for a Premier League club and is using Villa to generate interest elsewhere. Hopefully!

Ask yourself this. If you were Fox, assumably relatively comfortable at Arsenal, would you agree to moving to Villa without assurances over ownership and job stability after six years in a well paid position? This appointment means one of two things 1. Learner has made a u turn, 2. The new owner is soon to be annoinced and already making decisions. The recent change in transfer philisophy also ties in with points 1 and 2 above.

John Arne Riise saying Villa have bben in contact. Hope we don't take it further we don't need him and could use the wages to fix other positions.

The Villan

(11)
(4)

We don't need him, not sure what we need?

(8)
(1)

Reports online suggesting we are interested in signing Sebastian Blanco from Metalist. 26 year old Argentinian CAM. Villa Park could do with some South American Flair.

(12)
(5)

All riise said was villa along with many other sides had made contact, but nothing concrete, blanco looks like he would spice up our midfield

JFVilla4life

(5)
(6)

Blanco looks decent, quick tricky 2 footed, yes please.

(8)
(6)

I've supported signings such as senderos and cole as I can see the thought behind those deals and where they could fit in and what they could potentially offer us, but I would be pretty annoyed if we went ahead and signed riise. There is no need for him and he is below the standard that we already have. I suspect he's trying to drum up interest for himself rather than us actually being interested and hopefully it goes no further. I can't see it happening myself.

Reading the comment about Villa & South American Flair.
Had to go check cause the old memory is wonky, but can confirm that we have signed a Colombian already. Carlos Sanchez (defensive midfielder) is awaiting International Clearance as far as I have read.

Last season we had (I think) the worst record for losing after taking the lead. IMO PL has looked to address the defense. If we score the goals of last season without conceding, we'll be fine, just fine. if we're lucky, Benteke will come back and score a bundle as well.

ASTON VILLA LINK!

Omar Abdulrahman & Danny Wellbeck one of these a loan deal, might just be a rumour but hey very tasty especially after 0-1 win at Stoke and Sanchez to come in for the poor overweight Nzogbia

(0)
(25)

Well done to Lambert on the players he has brought in on a shoestring. Def made us stronger!

(20)
(2)

Who are you? Do you even like football? Clearly know nothing about our team if you think Sanchez will replace nzogbia, two completely different players playing completely different roles!

(16)
(5)

Can see what the fella means. Could push Richardson on the wing and move Delph further up the pitch

(6)
(13)

Abdulrahman would only join on loan if it was with view to a pernament deal. Man United needs all the players they can get at the moment. And for you to say that N'Zogbia is poor is a bit harsh considering the fact that he is a creative player and play well yesterday as did the whole team. Also, Carlos Sanchez wouldn't replace N'Zogbia. N'Zogbia is a flair player, whilst Sanchez is a hard working, tough tacking midfielder.

Cjr

(11)
(7)

Sanchez will replace westwood in the middle with delph, and when benteke comes back replaces gabby up top and probably cole behind him when fit, also I think there's 1 more player to come, either holtby lennon or sinclair as moses opted to join stoke.

(4)
(6)

Westwood needs to learn to read the game better. He would be fantastic then.

Villainous

(3)
(3)

Westwood is a real talent no doubt, but he does seem at times to let the game just flow past him, he needs to have more self belief and lern to boss the centre circle area, rather than disappear for half the game

Ssn say we have signed sanchez

Moses gone off the radar, no mentions anywhere. AV style is to keep quiet until the paperwork is signed so perhaps he could be the next name on the list. The future looks bright, the future is claret & blue. No more excusing the "kids" they are all grown men and the return of the Lerner exiles means that there are several new names at VP, almost a new eleven players.

Oldvillan

Lets get Holtby from Tottenham now then we can say we are prepared.

Lambert should try to get a striker on loan.

Jelle Vossen would be my choice. He can play for Villa with an option to buy the player at the end of this season.

I guess that he would cost £11-14 million. I don't think wages will be a problem, as he earns less than £20k per week at Genk.

(3)
(4)

Great signing and what we have need for quite a few years now we just need a winger and I think we could do with a striker for a 3 months to cover injurys and get benteke and Kozak fully fit before we put them in

Local newspaper also reporting Sanchez fliying in for medical as a fee has been agreed with his club and third party owners. Could be just what we need should it materialise.

Lots of conflicting reports about the fee. Have seen £1.5 million but also 4.7million!! Its a massive difference for this sort of fee (either half of our budget or a fifth!) so not sure which end of the scale is right.

Villas next CEO will be Nicola Cortese former Southampton CEO
Upthevillafc

(10)
(14)

Wow we have a CEO! I take it he will have a few billion in his back pocket for us to have a chance of staying up this season? It's a new owner we need who cares about a CEO

(6)
(14)

Hope this is true, as he is a football person unlike faulkner

(13)
(1)

Oooh this is very very interesting!

(6)
(6)

Its a rumour, nothing is confirmed.

(4)
(6)

Cortese is not exactly a football man, he is a business man more notably a swiss banker, but this is very interesting as it signal the beginning of a takeover. With money now being spent this week on cissokho and possibly the colombian DM Sanchez this could indicate Lerner sticking to his word of spending £10-15 mil then leaving around the kick off of the new season.

villapuppet

(4)
(6)

This would be the best thing for villa in a long time!

(6)
(4)

Like this post a lot if true! New CEO new owners

(5)
(6)

Cortese, he is the man who went and found Pottechino for Southampton, he has balls of steel because at the time the current manager was the fans favourite due to their promotion. This guy is just what we need, top class business man and exactly the right fit for CEO. Great as the bridge between the owner and management especially to getting the funds needed. He is a great operator.

(3)
(2)

Hope this is true as surely it would mean new owners are just round the corner

(4)
(4)

Have just read a paper (sun) and it says that any deal to sign Sanchez is off, I'd like to believe their story to be un true, and as the reporter from our game on Saturday didn't know who we were playing, as they put villa 0 Roma 0 I don't think they have a clue

(2)
(3)

And in the Birmingham mail it's saying we are close to signing sanchez

frenchy79

Well the same paper now says due to 3rd party owners the deal is close to collapse, also and seen a report we have been linked with Alex song, unless there is a takeover close we cannot afford him

Birmingham mail claim deal stumbling due to 3rd party involvement

I'd be interested hand on heart how much people know about him. I watched a lot of Spanish football last season including games outside the big 2, and he isn't someone that springs to mind. Columbia games were focusing on James R and not our man. I'm sure that people will be disagreeing for the sake of it, however I'd be interested peoples opinions on the above. Is this another Syilla?? It's the old saying, you get what you pay for!!

(6)
(4)

To say you get what you pay for is ridiculous. Christian Benteke cost us 7mill and we have a top premier league player. We paid just 1 million less for Bosko Balaban and I think the less said about him the better. You can find hidden gems. let's hope this guy is one of them!!

Sorry, could you find any other hidden gems through the archives?

Recent years for villa.
Mark Delaney £250,000
Martin Laursen £3,000,000
Carlos Cuellar FREE
Other teams.
Patrick Viera £3.5 mill
Van Persie £3 mill
Tim Cahill £1.5 mill
Cantona £1 mill.

Also on the other side.
Andy Carroll £35 mill
