Some reports tonight saying we're keeping an eye out just in case ulloa doesn't work out, depending on slimani joining newcastle, £5 million has been mentioned for nakhi wells, how true that figure i don't know, so should the question be, which of those two suits our style of play more, and i'm guessing nakhi wells, but who knows, we could gave another week of these shenanigans!

Ain't Palace in for Ulloa too? If I had the choice, I'd go for Vardy from all the Leicester strikers, if only so we get a low quote from his family to get the North Stand car park re-tarmacced?

UTV.


2.) 24 Jan 2018 22:26:48
So rumour is we’re looking at Slimani? Or Ulloa might fall through if Slimani goes to Newcastle? Can’t tell from that mate but I can’t see us getting Slimani in a million years, got to be fake.


3.) 24 Jan 2018 23:32:39
It says in local press that silami was subject of bids from Newcastle and one other. They won’t let Ulloa and the spicy sausage leave in same window. But the sausage wants to stay, so is not interested.
Just got the record. Vardy isn’t from pikey blood, his family couldn’t do the tarmac, he’s just a scum bag, and his family would take the cars parked there.


4.) 24 Jan 2018 23:53:42
what i meant Chris was that the barcodes want slimani, if he goes puel won't let ulloa leave as well, so as usual, nothing straight forward, that's why i'd go nakhi wells, if hogan has an injury, wells can step in almost like for like., though its being whispered about the forward from strasbourg on loan, his contract finishes in june, so figures in region of £50-100,000 being talked about, but i heard a little titbit that we were looking at bringing in a young striker from the irish league as a bit of a punt, last option stuff, but who knows anymore, maybe walkies can chat to his old opo keith wyness and let us know, and where's
Kingvilla?

Friends in low places tell me the belgian fella is samuel bastien, apparently we've wanted him since 2015,reports say combative midfielder, scores from distance and is good with the ball at his feet, i thought we had lansbury for that, but there again, what the heck do i know, only thing in our favour is we can offer him first team football and allegedly more money (? ),

So its now official, our owner is now doing what every owner does when they want more money than is on offer, he doesn't give a toss about our club, expect the bean counters to arrive soon, champions league in 5 years was his boast, the king of manure he should be crowned, the only upside here is brucey stepping up to the plate to get us on the road to recovery, and maybe, JUST MAYBE, with a much smaller squad, because he can't chop and change so much, it may do us a massive favour for continuity, hearts and minds boys, hearts and minds-UP THE VILLA!

I always had a feeling the dr does not want to sell,
At least we know where we stand now,
In deep poo!
Now it's up to Bruce and his coaches to get us playing a more attacking style and with some of the promising young players we have,
It will be very hard to get into top 6 with other clubs all around us spending while we go for the more prudent route,

There's only one thing simpletons like me need to know, ffp is a load of gobbledy-gook like Villdave said, who leaves, who stays doesn't really matter, for me the only real question is whether bruce sticks with this 'massive club' (his words), or toodles off to leeds-now if he goes because we're trying to save money then fine;but i hope he offers to take a massive pay cut to stay and finish what he started, if he chips off under his own volition, then not only will it destroy all the belief i had in bruce as a man of honour, but also it'll just go to show he'd rather go to a club who'd sack a manager after 14 games, with a squad he'd inherited, rather than see the opportunity to become a true legend at our club, so the choice is with bruce, is he full of class, or spouts it out of his a*se, let's see what happens (i hope for the sanity of football he stays for sure) .

Classof82

FFP is not an issue if your owner is prepared to gift the club money therefore underwriting spending. That is how clubs with genuinely wealthy owners have been able to get through FFP. Only when a owner starts wanting to run a viable business does this become an issue. The problem at Villa is that Xia’s money has only ever been in the form of loans meaning that they have a negative impact on the clubs balance sheet and show a very unprofitable organisation, which is not allowed under FFP.

FFP is not designed to stop wealthy people buying success, it is designed to stop clubs living way beyond their means by borrowing money they can never pay back (see Leeds and Pompey) .

Villas problem is that the club have borrowed the money from Recon and will owe it back, that money has now dried up I strongly suspect because it is starting to affect the viability of Xia’s broader business interests. Xia personally has not invested anything in Villa and never will, therefore we have the double whammy of facing FFP and an owner who can’t save us from that as he has no money to invest that he is prepared not to get back (if he did then he could gift the club a big sum of money and make all this go away, FFP and HMRC etc. )

Therefore the only way out of this is either a short term massive cash gift from a new wealthy owner or more realistically a 5 year restructuring programme to decimate the cost base and rebuild revenue from the bottom up. The latter probably involves some pretty painful years ahead unfortunately.


2.) 12 Jun 2018 11:15:31
That is right. The good Dr is not as generous with the cash as he tries to make out.


3.) 12 Jun 2018 13:59:16
Good in depth post Ely, like I said yesterday posted below, sell the lot and start again.
Painful yes, but we need rid of these jokers, they know nothing about football and the roots our great club have grown from.
Xia said he planed to invest in or buy football clubs in India, Spain, USA and Australia to create a new 'sports sector' within his portfolio.
My advice is to forget it, play with toys you understand, and you won`t break them.

So, the spuds have been quoted as favourites to buy grealish, looks like the fire sale is about to begin, what a complete clusterf**k this summer is going to be, i guess now we'll see just how much brucey wants stay after all those platitudes he spouted, ask not what we can do for you, moreover ask what YOU can do for THE VILLA.
Hearts and minds boys, hearts and minds.

I wonder what odds you'd get on mick mccarthy ending up as our manager during this season, don't scoff, truth is stranger than fiction-Walkies, next time you see wyness, ask him about mick mccarthy and see what his reaction is, watch him twitch!

1.) 05 Jun 2018 13:52:49
We are due a meeting but we have had no reply off him or the club.


 

 

29 May 2018 20:20:46
So, jibba jabba saying grealish is being monitored by man. utd, chavski and the mighty bournemouth!, i fear he will have to be sold, and one or two others won't be upset if another club comes in for them (ah loyalty, good to see it in action! ), so with the ffp ruling and the last parachute payment this summer, the idea of getting in a younger manager who'll want to bring in new players is pretty much a non-starter, so i guess we'll be looking for a wizened old coach, to duck and dive in the freebie market or the lower divisions, yep that's right, someone like neil warnock, so who'se out there to fit the bill, the most obvious is big sam, then you have another ex-brum cast-off in the name of harry redcrapp, scarily gary megson says he'd have a conversation if asked (cheers champ! ), and then you can move on to younger managers mentioned, dean smith, some bonehead who'se been sacked from the mighty sparta prague after one pony season, pardew as usual comes up, as does the name of curbishley (nnooo), i'm sure paolo fonseca will also be mentioned, but the bottom line is-if your a manager, will you want to take on a job with no money as such to spend, half the squad potentially exiting, no style of play as such, and a squad pretty much deflated after the play-off loss, to me this isn't the time for a young manager to come in, if we don't get up this season there'll be no money, dr. tony seems to be showing signs of losing the faith, not to mention the fans being somewhat unhappy, so for me there are 3 choices, either big sam, dean smith or, and this is a bit left field, chris coleman, did wonders with wales, went into the nut house that's sunderland and was starting to turn them around (with feck all money i hasten to add) when he got the bullet, so for me those are the choices unless the chairman cracks open his secret stash and bank rolls us to the promised land, i mean after all, he did say we'd be back in the champions league within 5 years or so, there you have it, nothing to worry about!

Had a chat with someone over a couple of barley wines (nudge, nudge, wink, wink)
and he said the biggest obstacle is that dr. xia still seems to think the club is worth well over 125 million to him, so the numbers being quoted in the local mail (blue nose rumour rag) is not even half of what he wants! -seems his calculator needs resetting! -and the longer it goes on, the more we're drawing attention to us and the efl, and as for the board, well, let's just say i reckon they may well be on ebay trying to buy some rather large corks to plug certain regions of their anatomy!

Lets see know if he stays more like, its pretty obvious new owners are waiting for a deal to be announced, then surprise of surprises;the likelihood is they'll more than likely want to bring in their own manager for 'their vision', -so for me, fair play to brucey for not walking away, he's had offers.

Its hard to bring back into the fold someone who thinks he's the billy big spuds, its all about him, don't forget fulham wanted to take him back on loan last season and the players all said no, look at leeds, did they want him back on loan, you show me one manager who came to his defence when he lost the plot, brucey gave him another chance but wee jimmy crankee again gave it the big i am, there's a reason no-one likes him.

2 things, come on daz, stop f**king about and say what you mean!, last post my arse, you can't skidaddle now fella, now the chips are down, this is when it all really starts, some fair weather supporters will always hoot up when things go sideways, but if your old enough to remember some of the divisions we've been in and fortunes of the past, this my friend is just a pregnant pause, we go again because that's who we are, and will always be, yeah the road is going to bumpy, and the results jumpy, but that's what will make it all the more sweeter when we rise again to the top, so don't give up daz, our best times are ahead of us, and secondly, on a personal note, i'll be glad when we get rid of kodjia, some players add to the feel good factor in a changing room, SOME DON'T, i know which one he belongs to, so the sooner he jogs on the better, i really think because of this squad unity will prevail, so whoever is there at the start of the season i don't care, as long as they give they're all (hutton style) that's all i ask-hearts and minds boys-UTV!

Top of the league-very drole fella, glad to see you've got the time to spend looking them up, don't worry fella, you'll soon lose interest when you get your first girlfriend, and boy oh boy will you feel top of the league when she agrees to be seen out in public in broad daylight with you, word of advice though, stop wearing your shellsuit and bumbag as an outfit, it may be fashionable with other wolves supporters, but out here in the real world not so much, if that's too much to take in, just stick to your normal routine of licking windows.

BK1982-not foolish fella, rightly optimistic, sorry to burst your bubble but apart from Hutton, (huth? pantillimon? ), every other player on your list will be gone if the right price comes in, needless to say some of the worthless fecks will scarper for the sake of 'their career'even though their on good sheckles, the only thing stopping it from happening at the moment is that we're rudderless (what a blessing! ), so keep the faith and i hope your right, but the agents are in overdrive touting their players to all and sundrae, so next season i'd expect a nuthouse special, -a mixture of the youth that's left, old stagers for a last hurrah, problem players other clubs don't want and the customary cheap foreign mercenaries, welcome to the new world, but that's what'll make it all the more sweeter when we turn the corner and start the accent-hearts and mind boys, hearts and minds-VTID-and then i'll be back to haunt the fecks who crossed us-UTV!
