Has anyone got inside info of when this meeting is supposed to be happening today? Am/ pm? I heard it was to be this morning, I would of thought soon after the meeting some sort of announcement either replacing Bruce or giving a vote of confidence would be released. Anyone heard what time the meeting started and how long it was scheduled for.


1.) 25 Jul 2018 16:37:00
Meeting has finished. Announcement later today.

2.) 25 Jul 2018 17:33:05
When will we found out anything?



18 Jul 2018 11:34:28
I'm hearing from a friend who has connections at spurs that the deal for freakish has been agreed over a week ago for £15 not sure if that's just initial up front fee with add ins or a player coningbthe other way but what they did say was it's not gone through yet because levy doesn't want to pay his wages until he has to but they want him on the US tour so expect it to be announced by friday.


1.) 18 Jul 2018 13:18:52
Well it now looks odds on grealish will be gone over week-end,
Hope the dr is well satisfied on bringing in more dosh for his coffers to keep us going for a few more months,
This is a absolutely horrible feeling for us fans to see our best player going to spurs for a very low transfer fee,
Levy will wring us dry to get the best deal for them which is there right,
But where will we end now when the likes of Thor, Jedi, Chester, adomah, all leave?

Never have I felt so sick of my club and owner,
Will he sell?
Or will he just send us into administration and possibly into div 1?
Just a very pissed off villa fan with nothing to look forward too unless!

2.) 19 Jul 2018 10:37:56
No fee is up front on that scale.

Taking the figure of 15 million as an example, there would be a deposit of 10-20% and the rest will be paid over 2-5 years.

Transfer fees are almost never paid in one single lump sum.

3.) 19 Jul 2018 17:10:39
Agree don't fat Dave that they are never under normal circumstances paid upfront but take out situation into account and the true value of freakish and this can happen as spurs are not short of money and we need the money now not in 2-5 years.

Hugo rodallega by the looks of us on his way, liked him a few years back and thought we should of got him then.

It's popped up on a few of the places I get my villa news from. mostly reliable and was convincing that it was close.

Hutton Chester Terry taylor

Andros Townsend anyone? Him and AA swapping sides during the match, sell sure and get him in I say, if he is willing to drop down and potentially have to wait another year before returning to the Orem as it might be a big ask this year now.


1.) 30 Jan 2017 00:50:28
townsend usedt to be good now don't rate him

2.) 30 Jan 2017 09:48:02
Seems like Townsends hit a brick wall, couldn't perform for Newcastle last year and is failing in a team with Benteke in, how hard can it be just cross it an you'll get 10 assists a season minimum.

3.) 30 Jan 2017 13:00:49
Just reminds me of how milner was before he came to us, same sort of player who we could get playing again

My Aunties sisters uncle who has a close contact at villa tells me the mystery man is a mystery! Apparently the mystery is 99% true. Lol lol



02 Jan 2017 11:44:26
Have I missed some news? The dr has confirmed a loan signing who is this? Or is it yet to be announced?


1.) 02 Jan 2017 12:18:36
Not seen anything mate!

2.) 02 Jan 2017 12:20:26
yet to be annouced as far as i know, but the gestede move is meant to have been sorted so i'm guessing rhodes is part of th deal.

3.) 02 Jan 2017 12:25:03
Sam Johnstone on loan.

4.) 02 Jan 2017 12:29:09
I hope so mate!
I think Ross, Rhodes and kodja are three great strikers, and we would easily cope with out either! .

5.) 02 Jan 2017 12:36:59
I think your right finch.

6.) 03 Jan 2017 19:03:21
You miss me Flackie.

7.) 03 Jan 2017 22:34:28
Yes, Irishvilla. My life is now complete! Where you been?

8.) 04 Jan 2017 09:16:56
It's understandable Flackie. You're only human after all. What I miss.

9.) 04 Jan 2017 09:56:59
How long you got! Where you been? Happy new year fella.

10.) 04 Jan 2017 19:46:11

Knock down the north stand re build it this season and open the upper tier of the trinity to get the numbers in. Sponsor the stand calling it the (new owners company name) stand and the FFP should be gone and we do something the club moving forward need if we are to go compete at the top.




20 Jul 2018 15:22:49
So the EFL have already accepted the financial transaction to the club from the two investors, now how much do they both own? Hypothetically if they invested the same as dr t between them or just over that making them majority share holders between them leaving room to buy the rest of the shares off dr t at a later date. My question is would this cover the FFP or would we need to generate money from somewhere else say naming rights to villa park? Would this balance the FFP of the investment doesn't?


1.) 20 Jul 2018 17:51:57
They will need to sponsor the stadium or something to sort ffp. They could have 100 billion and it still don't count to ffp.



04 Nov 2017 16:03:41
It's not a nice thing to see us being 2-0 down, a positive in my eyes is the frustration snodgrass showed at being subbed! It just shows he cares and wants to be in the pitch to try and help, every cloud has a silver lining and all that.


1.) 04 Nov 2017 17:07:41
Well that burst the bubble, sucker punched in the first 20 seconds. snoddy not at all happy. The worrying thing is the injuries that we are picking up. Hopefully jt is not to badly spangled. pity we couln, t break through earlier the goal came far to late to pinch a draw. oh well on to the next one.

2.) 04 Nov 2017 17:33:40
Very disappointed with that display,
After the best display on Wednesday to back to hoof ball with no tempo at all,
Can not find any positives,
Losing Terry with a possible bad injury is another worry,
It we are now to rely on samba God help us,
Only plus point we are still in top 6 but there are loads of teams now bunched up behind us,



26 Aug 2017 11:53:48
After watching snodgrass' interview from yesterday, this guys came across and someone with a massive point to prove the whu he wasn't to prove he is quality and that he needed to be played in his position, he sounds like a guy with the fire in his heart to stick his middle finger up to whu managerial staff and prove them wrong. If he can recapture the fore that made them spend £10m+ he could well be the signing of the season for us.

I'm trying not to get carried away with it but I've wanted us to sign him for 2 years now and I really think he will be a fantastic addition for us.


1.) 26 Aug 2017 13:19:37
If Snodgrass can get the form he showed at Leeds and hull we will have a bargain.
Interesting to see how Bruce fits him in side now,



05 Aug 2017 17:38:14
1 down 7 to go, doesn't seem so crazy now does it?

Kalinic isn’t eligible until the fa cup game as he can’t be registered and made official until the window opens tomorrow so won’t be registered in time to play.

I'm not one for being the grammar police but villa4eva at least try to make sense.

As previously stated by people on here, the aim of this season is to get promoted and personally I couldn't care less as long as we get promoted. We don't ha be the luxury afforded to man c/ u Chelsea to worry about playing attractive football we need to get promoted it's as simple as that.

Hopefully kodjia is sold 🤞 If we could get £8m+ for him I would be happy after yesterday's performance.

The papers notably the blues paper what is the Mail are reporting majority bid from a preferred investor is received with a view to total ownership predumably if we get promoted at an inflated price to allow dr t to get his money back. Middle East investor could be anyone bringing good or bad to the club if it goes through. seems we go through this every few seasons recently.

To say he has failed twice already is harsh, the first season was spent saving us from relegation and he didn't have the full season, yes I would say one attempt but consider the injuries and loss of both parents not to mention knowing we was financially struggling so extra pressure/ stress at the time he lost the parents I say he did pretty damn well to get us to the playoff final. Give him a break yes he isn't the best in the transfer window or tactically but let's be honest if he was he wouldn't be at our club he would be at Man U Chelsea arsenal Liverpool or man c.

I actually think it's a good time to sell him, he is getting the wrong side of 30 and after last seasons goals his price is inflated still so I say sell him and play green instead. We have Thor green, Elmo and kodjia who can all play wide.

Sell AA and kodjia to boro and get Big Ben in on loan, can't see palace going for it but I think we could persuade them if we have a big enough buy clause where we have to buy him if we are promoted say £25-30m.

£30m?! Maddison went for £24m if I'm not mistaken, so this late in the window surely makes it £35m not to mention that doesn't even cover the FFP so if we can't meet the standard completely why try and meet it at all? We might as well fail FFP massively and have a chance of promotion than failing slightly and missing out on promotion. I'm not saying jack is the only way we will get promoted that goes to all our players potential sales.

Avfc1988 couldn't of put it better myself! No need for jealousy to other teams as the grass isn't always greener and we have what we have so let's support what we have got and see where it leads us.
