Best news today o'hare signs a new 2 yr deal.


1.) 20 Oct 2017 23:40:52
So chuffed want to see him play more.



01 Oct 2017 13:49:48
Has Davis being turned by the stories of man utd/ everton/ arsenal looking at him?
Turning down his contract offer!
This will not be the first to get heads turned I fear,


1.) 01 Oct 2017 14:15:17
Plus his agent advising him to hold out as Villa will surely increase the offer. I hope it does not get drawn out as that's not good for anybody!

2.) 01 Oct 2017 18:59:11
Where are you reading his turned down a contract offer?

3.) 01 Oct 2017 19:25:44
I read it as well. He turned it down instantly bit villa coming back with no. I wonder if his agent is the same as Hepburn Murphy's. As that would explain allb.

4.) 02 Oct 2017 04:19:00
The jibba-jabba out there is saying his agent wants him playing top tier asap, and needless to say arsenal have been flashing a bit of ankle in his direction, i don't get it, if he chips off to a top premiership club he won't get any game time, so either his agent wants a bigger slice of the pie;or the boy has massive belief in his abilites, nothing wrong with self belief, or maybe he feels with the kodg. back, he might get less playing time, i just hope we sort him out a good deal, but arsenal have been sniifing around for a while now, come on villa, splash the cash will ya!

5.) 02 Oct 2017 04:34:15
Just been sharking around on forums and one or two are saying that everton are watching, but the club showing a big interest are the spuds, seems he ticks the boxes for being young, english, powerful, skilled, not afraid to have a go against whoever, and importantly, wouldn't cost an arm and a leg to buy at the moment, maybe the young lad we got on loan from the spuds has turned his head;a young team with a young, progressive manager, who knows, all i know is get him signed up asap!

6.) 02 Oct 2017 08:34:14
It's BS.

7.) 02 Oct 2017 09:30:02
I put these stories about Davis down to agents putting the feelers out for there own greed,
Never been a fan of agents in the game but we are stuck with them now,
The agent behind the pogba deal got by all accounts 24 million?
That is utterly madness,

8.) 02 Oct 2017 12:05:51
The same website also said that Ross McCormack was 100% signing for Sunderland.

9.) 02 Oct 2017 13:30:52
That story was almost right chris, in the end wee jimmy cranky wanted a loyalty bonus from us and sunderland wanted us to pay some of his wages, needless to say the handbrake went up on that deal!

10.) 02 Oct 2017 13:51:46
Just look at the other stories from the website, 0 credibility.

11.) 02 Oct 2017 16:10:31
I'm not saying every story is correct, far from it, the davis story does seem to have legs unfortunately, also the mccormack story did have substance, sunderland tried to extract the micheal and we told them, they pay all the wages or they could jog on, and the result speaks for itself, and the loyalty payment request, you couldn't make it up!

12.) 02 Oct 2017 17:20:57
I don't see how it can have legs if their the only place reporting it, the other random places all state them as their source. Normally if a story has substance there's 5 or 6 reporters on it, in the main papers. This is one man on a bullabod website, with the only correct articles on it coming after the thing their reported have taken place. They have articles days apart headlined, "villa set to miss out on England international defender" then after we signed him, "villa secure signing of John Terry". Come on.

13.) 02 Oct 2017 23:51:38
Chris-the keinan story has been in the red top national papers a few weeks back, and also the sunday red tops, i guess its fair to say the secret is out, we got ourselves a corker of a player, all we need to do now is give him no reason to think about looking elsewhere, and that's diwn to brucey's man management skills and steve round proving his worth negotiating with agent, time will tell.

14.) 03 Oct 2017 07:27:37
Papers don’t put articles up and they expire, if it’s been in the red tops it will still be there. I’ve looked it’s not. Find me a link and I’ll admit I’m wrong, however at the moment this is all BS and there’s nothing to discuss.

15.) 03 Oct 2017 17:50:25
Chris-i'm not trying to trump you fella, but you asked and i can say the story was in the currant bun on the 28 sept. , when i get a few moments i'll try and find the story in the others mate, but it doesn't really matter, i think the bottom line is we got ourselves a gem of a player, and unless we sort him out a good deal, some prem. clubs are going to try and pick our pocket pretty soon, so let's not dilly dally on this one i hope.



27 Sep 2017 13:19:28
Hear a few of the top scouts from the premier looking at Davis,
Hope that he gets a 5 yr deal with villa,
We have to expect this and o'hare and Hayes will also have some admirers,
We really need to go up this season to help us keep these young talented players.


1.) 27 Sep 2017 15:20:06
Totally agree mainbob we must hang on to the crop of yongsters that we have coming through. Its the best crop that we have had for a while. At the end of the day they are our future.

2.) 27 Sep 2017 16:47:04
He's played a handful of games but even just for what his shown in those games we should be handing him a 5 year deal with a huge, astronomical buy out clause. Easy to get carried away with young players just breaking through but just for the chance he might fulfill the potential we shouldn't let him slip away.



21 Sep 2017 16:06:41
There are big rummors going around that Bruce has lost the dressing room,
When lansbury was took of on Tuesday he told Bruce to piss off by all accounts,
And Whelan gave Bruce the armband and was told to calm down by Bruce,
They had a blazing row and after the game,
Now I don't now if it's true or not I'm just putting it out for debate
I'll leave it to you all to decide,


1.) 21 Sep 2017 17:12:15
I'm saying BS, they could at least put effort into this crap, Lansbury was injured.

2.) 21 Sep 2017 17:59:42
It could well be bull.
Most rummors are just that rummors with no substance,
But there are the occasional ones that need looking more deeply into.

3.) 21 Sep 2017 23:12:58
In football you will always upset players especially if you got a big squad like Aston Villa I don't think Bruce has lost the dressing room there might be a few unhappy players but that's because there not playing week in week out! where did this rumour come from?

{Ed033's Note - It doesn't appear to be a rumour, it seems to be a rummor (possibly from Inspector Jacques Clouseau).

4.) 22 Sep 2017 10:24:12
If Bruce has lost the dressing room, perhaps someone should tell him - it's down the tunnel on the left .

5.) 22 Sep 2017 16:25:05
I’m guessing this rumour started at about 4pm Thursday on a villa forum.
Big big rumour! Lol.



28 Aug 2017 16:43:27
There are strong rummors to Martin Johnson from Oxford?
2-3 million,
Can't see it myself but just putting it out there for discussion.


1.) 28 Aug 2017 18:41:00
Think we're done now, need to get rid of a few desperately, how big is the senior squad now?

2.) 29 Aug 2017 11:20:52
1 more deadline day in on loan 3 players out.

3.) 29 Aug 2017 12:37:36
If I'm honest can't see anymore signing in!
We are struggling to get rid of the garbage we have,
Can see 2 going out.

4.) 29 Aug 2017 14:30:18
will be a loan striker in but will depend on McCormack going out.

5.) 29 Aug 2017 16:04:58
Will it be David Selke kingy? He's been at bodymore before.

6.) 29 Aug 2017 16:10:41

7.) 29 Aug 2017 16:11:11
Dwight Gayle told he can go?

8.) 29 Aug 2017 16:32:19
That's a solid rumour Mainbob, he wants out, don't know if we're in for him tho, last few days of the window and anything could happen


9.) 29 Aug 2017 17:27:29
Scored loads for Newcastle last year and their willing to let him go, that's nice of them😂 Would be a quality signing but think we've got enough players as it is, unless one of the main strikers leave can't see him coming in.

Great result
Good performances but a really nervy ending,
Wish we could see out a game and keep hold of the ball in final minutes,
But we'll done lads.




21 Oct 2017 11:06:11
My advice to Steve Bruce is get your players in and show them the video of the Norwich game and simply say repeat that type of performance!




20 Oct 2017 14:45:58
Best news today o'hare signs a new 2 yr deal.


1.) 20 Oct 2017 17:49:29
Great news - but why only 2 years. Surely he's worth a 4 year deal?



17 Oct 2017 16:01:44
Now that Leicester have sacked there manager could Bruce be a replacement?
Could we be that lucky!


1.) 17 Oct 2017 18:34:34
If I said this I would be castigated lol.

2.) 18 Oct 2017 01:07:51
They don't want you nuts WTW!

Oh, different word. sorry.

3.) 18 Oct 2017 07:44:11
My comment on Bruce was in jest only
I'm not a Bruce fan as you know but I've said he should be left to do his thing this season
If we are then still not going up then things have to change,
I have said if Bruce takes us up he should still be replaced because I don't think he is tactical aware for the premiership,
Buts that's for another day.

4.) 18 Oct 2017 17:50:21
Good KP dry roasted are the ones for you lot you will enjoy them more.



17 Oct 2017 08:03:09
I see the u21 played well again last night with o'hare man of match,
Bruce only brings this kid on when we are losing in the final minutes of game,
He brings a spark whenever he plays and surely needs more playing time,
I also think that lyden needs to replace Whelan,
Not only is he younger he scores the odd goals and will bring more pace to the midfield,
We have some decent young players and should not be disgarded
We do have a record of young players not getting enough game time,


1.) 17 Oct 2017 09:38:22
Mainbob what worrys me is we have no pace in the team and when we do play teams with pace eg Wolves and Cardiff we don't cope well. Pace in football terrifies people even the blues have pace with vassell now we need to bring players through slowly I know but when you have people like Glen whelen who can't keep up with play anymore and even Jedinak its a old midfield with them. footballs a young mans game so why not give youth a chance? Last month was a easy month for us but we still did well if I was offered the playoffs now I would take it.

2.) 17 Oct 2017 10:13:13
A few premiership scouts at the game last night,
How long before we lose the likes of o'hare/ lydon/ hayes/ sulaman?
I can see this coming and Bruce needs to get them involved in and around the squad,
These players above are all very talented and must not be allowed to leave while we have the likes of certain players who should have left this club years ago but are still here!
No guessing who I'm talking about,

3.) 17 Oct 2017 13:41:48
Not this again, there’s scouts at every game.

De-laet is our best option for left back.
He has played there many times in career,
But if Bruce puts thor in there again he is asking for trouble,
He was awful where last played there,
Clark is a good young fullback but can't see Bruce putting him in a derby game,
Whoever he plays will be tested by this exciting wolves side,

Let's get up to the premiership first then we can decide what's best for the club,
It's stupid talking about Bruce when and if we go up!
Concentrate on this season first,

I'm afraid to say if a young player wants to leave villa for more money and at a top 4 club he will go simply as!

Play the same team against the noses
Anomah was the big difference yesterday he looked the business,
Love to get him signed up permanently that's for sure,
But whole team played well and if we show the same commitment next week we will win the game,
But we know that derbies are very unpredictable,
It's who wants it on the day!

All I will say about the young players are simply that a few should be more involved not so much in the first 11 but on the bench,
O'hare for me is good enough for first team,
Hayes/ sulaman/ and lydon in my opinion are good enough for the bench,
I went to the Wigan game in the cup and was very impressed with most of the players,
I know it's a big step up for championship level but some are clearly going in the right direction,
O'hare for me is a better prospect than grealish,
I'm a great believer in youth getting a chance but for me Bruce is not the type of manager for this,
So we will leave it at that,

Everybody knows I'm not a Bruce fan,
Did not want him but I support aston villa as my team
Early in season I wanted him out plain and simply,
But I had a change of heart and was giving him a chance to get up up in premiership.
I also said that If he got us up I want him gone for the premiership as he is not good enough tactical,
His style of play is well known,
If you don't like my comments fair enough,
No need to fall out over the game we both love,
You have your opinion I have mine!
