Fantastic appointment, great to have JT back - Now let's get our defence sorted and kick on, we will certainly score bucket loada under Smith - Kodjia, Tammy and a rejuvenated Hogan, watch out Championship!


1.) 12 Oct 2018 14:22:52
my fingers have been crossed for decades i think they're stuck like it!

Surely a loss at Bristol and Bruce is gone? By some miracle, we are only 5 points from the summit, this leage is here for the taking but we need to act fast.

I've seen a lot of posts lately about how boring the whole Bruce in / Bruce Out debate has become and I completely agree. It's redundant, the only opinions that matter are those of the owners and I just hope that they are paying close attention, not just to our results, style of play and general lack of identity but to the league in general. A swift and wise appointment allied with our talented squad leaves us with a great chance of promotion, procrastinate and we will be here for a long long time.


1.) 23 Sep 2018 10:08:05
But who can we get in.

2.) 23 Sep 2018 10:36:04
That's the million dollar question who!

3.) 23 Sep 2018 11:42:30
There are plenty of options, my first choice would be Brendan Rodgers - He will instil a sense of indentity and get us playing vibrant attacking football.

In a honesty though, I don't accept the "but who do we get" excuse for keeping Bruce in the job - A manager that will play players in their correct position, regardless of historic success or win ratios or experience is instantly an improvement on Bruce - And I think / hope we would be looking at managers with more to them than that. He needs to go, we are only five points off the top, there is plenty of time to win the league but we need to act or we will blink and the gap will be in insurmountable 15+ points.

mate of mine up in geordie land says benitez is fed up of all the mike ashley stuff and the club's sale and might be tempted elsewhere, possibly villa park.



13 Sep 2018 21:37:13
De Laet leaving now. Is Bruce determined to get rid of our entire defence?


1.) 13 Sep 2018 22:55:04
I would imagine that If a new centre back is incoming at £60,000 a week, we need to get somebody off the wage bill to comply with ffp.



20 Aug 2018 14:42:42
Bolaise off to Boro, who are we realistically getting?

I seen we were linked with Declan Rice, that would be an excellent signing.

Think we need a CB, LB, LW and ST.

Any thoughts or Rumours?


Rice, Chester, Tuanzebe


Ojo, Hourihane, McGinn, Green




1.) 20 Aug 2018 15:01:21
Don't forget Hogan to sheaf Utd is a possibility,
Ojo is a real hit and miss performer,
We need a good old fashioned centre forward in my view,
Don't ask me who,
C/ back and a l/ back are no -brainers.
It's all in the air at the moment,



27 Jun 2018 10:35:52
Anybody have any news on potential takeover or investment?


1.) 27 Jun 2018 16:51:21
It's close. Xia wants to keep some sort of stake but the only way he can get good money is full sale. 3 parties are in 2 have put offers forward.

2.) 27 Jun 2018 20:31:01
Anyone have any news that isn't in all the media posts available?

Is this our first 11 come August, how confident are people feeling and how many more do we need?


Guilbert, Webster, Mings, Targett

Phillips, McGinn

El Ghazi, Grealish, Benrahma



1.) 02 Jul 2019 07:14:27
With another decent striker and attacking option off the bench I’d be confident that team could stay up and build from next summer.



13 Jun 2019 00:18:30
How many players have we been linked with at this stage? Silly season!

What do you think is our most likely 11 come August? I think there will be 1 marquee signing, and I'm going for Gomes, purel for rubbishs and gigs :-)


Guilbert, Tomori, Mings, Target

McGinn, Phillips

El Ghazi, Grealish, Benrahma



1.) 13 Jun 2019 07:22:46
Tomori for the reported 10mil is a steal, should be all over that!

2.) 13 Jun 2019 21:38:09
Is he a good player that Tomori?

3.) 14 Jun 2019 13:30:23
I thought he was excellent last year for Derby, would be my choice if we can't get Tuanzebe!

Really want Phillips as well, he's just the type of player we need in the midfield.



29 May 2019 18:24:36
Lads. We are back! Now, who we signing?

I don't want to do a Fulham but surely we need a substantial rebuild in the summer?

Personally I think the following gaps need to be plugged, what's your thoughts? 11 Players?












Personally I think the following is obtainable over the course of the next 2 windows? But may cost 200M though Ha Ha!

Mings - 15M
Hause - 3M
Tuanzebe - 20M
Justin - 8M
Ampadu - 15M
Phillips - 8M
El Ghazi - 5M
Wilson - 25M
Sessegnon - 30M
Mitrovic - 30M
Abraham - 30M


Gilbert, Mings, Tuanzebe, Justin

McGinn, Phillips

Wilson, Grealish, Sessegnon



1.) 29 May 2019 20:28:48
Great post bk.

2.) 30 May 2019 10:38:25
Great post well thought out mate. Few points:

1. Kalinic have a few shockers earlier in the season, would this not push you toward steer? And on top of that is steer good enough? Definitely deserves a shot but that’s one of the most important positions, can we take chances?

2. Justin has been heavily linked and looks like he fits out type of play, but has anyone watched him regularly? I haven’t but I see he’s being brought in as a left back but he’s right footed? This seems odd and would worry me over a whole season, is he comfortable with both?

3. Do you think United will let Tuanzebe go? If not what are other right footed centre half options?

4. Is Sessegnon worth the fee Fulham will demand? Would it not be worth looking maybe at a Bowen or Kent?

5. If Chelsea won’t let Tammy go who would you look toward as a second striker? Big Ben?

6. Any other options for defensive mid, Phillips is great but Leeds through and through, might be a struggle getting him out of there. Would Mooy or Shelvey fit the bill?



18 Apr 2019 09:39:56

Very random one - Myself and my partner just had our first child and I'd love to buy her one of the baby kits, however, there are only the 3rd kits left on the club shop. Do you know any other outlets that may sell them?

We live in Ireland and I'd love to have one for her to wear during the playoff final ;-) (counting chickens)



1.) 18 Apr 2019 17:30:43
Hi Bk ebay are selling them mate just checked for you.

2.) 18 Apr 2019 21:15:09
Ed’s. is there a reason my reply wasn’t posted?
I’m not concerned for people to read it, only BK, where you able to message him the details?

Not being funny, just a shame for it to go to waste.

{Ed007's Note - I've held it for Ed033 to deal with mate. He's the only one that can access your e-mail addresses and that way they aren't put up on the site for anyone to see 👍 here it is but Ed033 will sort it out.

3.) 18 Apr 2019 21:52:11
Thanks Ed.

{Ed007's Note - I'm not just a pretty face you know 😁

4.) 18 Apr 2019 22:09:24
Wow Flackie, are you sure? That is insanely generous, don't want to impose at all.

Ed, how do I contact you with my email?

The Villa family keep surprising me, honestly!

5.) 18 Apr 2019 20:55:52
Bk, we have one here, was brought at Xmas for a nephew, trying to get the claret and blue in his system before his family poisoned him with Leicester colours. as you can guess, it didn’t work.

If Ed’s can give you my email, make contact and I’ll post to you ASAP.
No charge, a present for the baby.

{Ed033's Note - Flack email address sent to BK1982 registered email address.

6.) 18 Apr 2019 22:54:46
Not a problem mate, it’s a pleasure.
Message me as soon as you can and I’ll post straight away.

7.) 18 Apr 2019 22:51:38
Thank you ed.

{Ed033's Note - BK1982 has received the Flackie email address.

8.) 18 Apr 2019 23:32:14
We are now in contact.
Thank you for your help Ed.

{Ed033's Note - ok, live long and prosper :)



01 Apr 2019 12:47:32
I know I will get shot down for "getting ahead of myself" and being "unrealistic" but if we are to win promotion this year, where are the areas we need to strengthen and who do you think are realistic targets?

Personally I believe, should we be successful in the playoffs, our owners will show significant ambition and back Dean Smith in the transfer window.

I think this 11 would show serious ambition and would certainly help us consolidate our position in Premierleague - Let the abuse start Ha Ha!

1. Mings (10M)
2. Hause (2M)
3. Tuanzebe (Loan)
4. Tierney (20M)
5. Ampadu (15M)
6. Bowen (15M)
7. Sessegnon (20M)
8. Abraham (20M)



Gilbert, Mings, Tuanzebe, Tierney

McGinn, Ampadu

Bowen, Grealish, Sessegnon



1.) 01 Apr 2019 21:44:29
Quite like that personally, think some of the figures may be off a bit, Bournemouth brought mings for 8 I think a few years back so they’d want more like 15+, Chelsea under embargo will be in no rush to sell anyone, to get two young players out of them will be an up hill battle, Wolves we’re offering 30 for Tammy in January (reportedly) so that will be like 35 in the summer. I do really like majority of the names you’ve mentioned, I’d probably go for someone other than ampadu and possibly sessegnon aswell. Mooy maybe for the number 6 position and then maybe look abroad for a winger, sessegnon doesn’t seem to be able to do it in the prem.

Dembele is going nowhere, and would cost 80M in this market! Zero chance.

I think it's a shrewd bit of business, I'd be amazed if he is not second choice on the right come August and he is a step up from both Adomah and Green. Deano rates him, he was outstanding during his Brentford days, knows the system, is technical, and only 4M plus a player we don't want. Worst case it does work, we will get our money back.

I've a feeling Green may go out on loan so for me Jota will be back up for the right wing. Not a signing that sets the world alight but an improvement on Green sadly and a player who was very effective under Smith at Brentford. At 4M it's not a huge risk as we would get that back in a heart beat if it doesn't work out.

Good post Dan, personally I think we need

RB, CB X 3, LB X 2, MF, RW X 2, LW X 2 and ST X 2 over the course of 2 transfer windows.

We need serious investment, but investment in youth and talent rather than "experience" - We have went down that route and it didn't work.

My wish list would be:

Butland (Not A Priority)
Tomori (If We Can't Get Tuanzebe)
El Ghazi
Jota (Looks Done)


Gilbert, Tomori, Mings, Tierney

Ampadu, McGinn

Bowen, Grealish, Sessagon

I wouldn't touch any of them bar Mitrovic Villa4Eva - Jota is underwhelming but he is an improvement on both Adomah and Green, so our squad is improved already.

Think we all need to relax, better players will arrive.

Opinions like this are everything that's wrong with football, and in particular Villa. If you can't see what Dean Smith is trying to then there really isn't much hope for you. We are in the process of a full transition at Villa, top to bottom, it's not going to happen over night but once Grealish returns we will be in much better shape - A playoff spot is still up for grabs!
