So stan collymore pipes up in twitter slating how we have spent obscene amount of money since Dr Xia arrived

And how hogan isn't work the 9million rising to 12 million we are apparently paying

Tell you what Stan . pipe down, you talk crap about everyone when actually you was one of the biggest let downs to play for Us

Cost 7million in 1997 and scored 15 goals in 3 seasons

Now that's an obscene amount of money for nothing in return . so Stan pipe down you clown


1.) 31 Jan 2017 16:28:10
Mate he's just sour, because he's not involved with the club and we are on the up!

2.) 31 Jan 2017 16:53:12
Bang on Villa Ken! I remember collywobble being the biggest waist of money I had ever seen. He moaned about depression whilst earning £25,000 per week which at the time was mega and still is! Shut your big trap Stan let's thank the Doc not pull him to bits! Who do you think you are!?



26 Jan 2017 14:29:13
According to SSN there have been bids from other clubs for scott hogan

Hope we're one of them as he looks a good player

McCormack wants to move back to London . I would offer McCormack plus the Gestede money for hogan

See if we can get it done!


1.) 26 Jan 2017 17:27:42
I'd love to sign him aswell but would we need him? So far we've gone with 1 up top so unless we're playing Kodija out wide again don't see him getting off the bench!



23 Jan 2017 21:58:27
So Sheffield Wednesday are after Rhodes

They really do have a quality strike force presently, adding to it would surely make a bit of a conundrum for them as to how they would fit all there strikers into the same team .

I have said it before and will say it again but maybe a bid for forestieri should be made with him playing in behind Kodjia that would be quality!

I would also try wells from Huddersfield!

Also if Hull would sell to us I think Hernandez is quality but it would take £20 million to get him . Should we sell the poison dwarf then he should also be an option.


1.) 23 Jan 2017 22:06:31
Yes Ken, but we have all said the same for weeks mate.
Nothing new there, its all old ground.

2.) 23 Jan 2017 22:09:20
Maybe SB reads these pages Dave and takes a mental note 📝

3.) 23 Jan 2017 22:21:24
Spot on Ken good point mate.

4.) 23 Jan 2017 22:21:22
All good stuff kenn I agree but it's all been said on here for weeks, hopefully we find some quality to help kodja but with Akpom being mentioned it doesn't fill anyone with confidence. However give Bruce his due his been brilliant so far this window, maybe timing a bit poor but has found absolute bargains and refused to let us be mugged off, so if McCormack goes I'm sure he will sign some quality.

5.) 23 Jan 2017 22:45:57
Rhodes is never worth the £8 million Wednesday are reportedly about to bid and Bruce was right to pull out. Can we afford another Mcormack situation having paid over the odds for an average Player. The press will say Wednesday beat Villa to the signing but in reality Villa had first refusal. Well done Steve Bruce.



21 Jan 2017 14:48:21
So team news is Lansbury starts along side land crab .

McCormack and jedinack don't even make the 18! And gabby is the only recognised striker besides your Davies .

There was no injurys mentioned by Bruce in yesterday's press conference

Could McCormack be off?

Also hogan has been left out the Brentford squad


1.) 21 Jan 2017 17:45:07
hogan off to westham



20 Jan 2017 12:06:43
So Stevie Bruce has said that Rhodes won't be coming .

Can't say I'm too disappointed .

Maybe Rhodes will end up at Sheffield Wednesday, who have also brought Winnel from Barnsley . they also have Steven Fletcher and Fernando Forestieri

I would certainly put a bid if for forestieri as he is quality.


1.) 20 Jan 2017 12:22:11
That's a shout mate he is like a Championship Sanchez. As in the one from Arsenal not the one we loaned out.

2.) 20 Jan 2017 13:09:23
They've also got hooper!

3.) 20 Jan 2017 13:41:06
He's just signed a new contract at Wednesday if I'm right?


4.) 20 Jan 2017 15:22:35
Think your right allyp, but contracts in football are worthless as money talks

5.) 20 Jan 2017 15:49:54
Ulloa would be my first choice.

Apparently Jota from Brentford is about to sign on at the Sty!

He is way to good a player to be plying his trade down at Small Heath.


1.) 31 Aug 2017 09:30:18
Jota is the type of player villa should have gone for,
Harry at it again,

2.) 31 Aug 2017 11:33:06
We have much better players than blues Iam not worried what so ever when Kodjia is back then the rest of the league should worry. We are the best in the land. the bells are ringing.

3.) 31 Aug 2017 11:47:10
I wasn't referring to our players compared to blues

I was just saying Jota is a great player way to good for blues .

IMO Jota would walk straight into our starting 11 based on his performances last season for Brentford.

4.) 31 Aug 2017 13:21:27
Agree that jota would go strait into the villa team
He is A very creative player who I am surprised has gone to the blues,
Fulham were supposed to sign him but Harry step in to get him,

5.) 31 Aug 2017 13:45:52
I am even more surprised that Alex song going to the blues,
Harry is bringing in quality midfield players,
Song is very experienced at the top table,



15 Aug 2017 20:31:15
Hogan off injured! Wow the boy is a sick note.




07 Jul 2017 14:59:23
Brentford are apparently selling Jota to a premier league club for 8m

Now there is a bargain .

Get shut of veretout if he doesn't want to play and use the funds for Jota . Quality player.




24 Jun 2017 18:59:42
Will Hughes has gone to Watford for 4.5m rising to 7m

That is an absolute bargain!


1.) 24 Jun 2017 20:27:39
Unfortunately he's not a player we need but is a good player. We need eg some1 to play a kante role but we cannot buy anybody really until we sell because we over spent last season.



19 Jan 2017 12:45:50
We're clearly after a new striker, for me Rhodes although prolific isn't an upgrade on Gestede .

Clearly the lad can score but not the way we play, not a crossing team .

Personally i would prefer Scott Hogan although the lure of premiership football with West Ham is more attractive than us

Failing that I would go for Nakhi Wells from Huddersfield. Quick and direct would be perfect for counter attacking style and would compliment Kodjia


1.) 19 Jan 2017 13:50:45
Bang on Ken we need more pace up front and definitely not another donkey plodder! Gestede is never worth £6 million in a trillion years £4 mil tops . Rhodes possibly £6 mil tops. Problem is they all know Villa have cash so £6mil becomes £12 mil

2.) 19 Jan 2017 14:08:14
Apparently wells is stalling on a new contract .

Huddersfield want 8 million for him

3.) 19 Jan 2017 19:10:49
Wells would be great signing like a young gabby full of energy

4.) 19 Jan 2017 19:26:14
Pace and can hit the back of the net

5.) 19 Jan 2017 20:06:23
We need more or a presence than Wells imo, Rhodes is a huge upgrade on gustede but I also don't think he's the answer, not quick enough to be considered a pacey striker and not big enough to be a target man, more of an all rounder. That being said he could turn out to be the answer and no matter what he will be 1000 times better than Gabby.

6.) 19 Jan 2017 21:36:35
A strikers job is to score, Rhodes knows his job, file under Lineker, Kerry Dixon, Darren Bent etc.


7.) 20 Jan 2017 09:14:44
get lansbury and this kid from Barnsley into the side and we will create a hell of a lot more and mccormack will look at different player. rohdes will do the same even gabby might get 2 by end of season it's all about creating chances which we have not been doing. simple as that.

8.) 20 Jan 2017 09:41:53
Allyp I agree but maybe someone should tell that to Ross McCormack!

I know we're not playing the best style to suite him but even so he has been a very poor acquisition IMO

9.) 20 Jan 2017 11:14:32
McCormack is probably a D- so far this season, maybe with more chances created he will come good, and a set position that he'll play in, and for gods sake back him, not get on his back.

Everyone has an opinion Dave and we are all entitled to one as that’s the democracy we live in .

Personally I would much prefer to watch attractive football, than what certain teams play (us included at times )

However winning should be the first and foremost concern for any team / business . I will use the word business as that is exactly what football has now become.

I would like villa back in the premier league and challenging for honours . Would I accept Bruce in charge winning games and challenging playing 💩 football ovcourse I would .

After all that’s exactly what both Chelsea and Leicester played whilst winning the titles in recent years.

Dave I would have to go for the following

Johnstone - will sign permanently should we gain promotion
Chester - obviously
Terry - one more year max
Hourihane - I think he needs to be played in the right set up and given a some freedom . I mean Ashley Landcrab Westwood seems to of gone on to play well for Burnley when asked to .
Grealish - potentially one of the best players to come out of villa in 20years
Snodgrass - sign permanently should we get promoted
Adomah - he has another 2 seasons left in him
Andre Green - this kid has tremendous potential should he get an injury free run
Scott Hogan - love him or hate him he runs his socks off and makes such good runs, if Shane long is premier league quality then hogan is also. Confidence player who needs a cuddle
Kodjia - frustrates me greatly, but so unpredictable and can just score for fun

I also do believe that there are some great youngsters coming though who will progress into 1st team players

I believe that Bruce is the right person to gain promotion. I also believe he deserves a chance to keep us up and develop the 2nd phase of the boards plan which is a team to keep us up in the premier league .

However the 3rd phase of the boards plan will see another manager at the helm as Bruce won’t be what xia wants

That’s not to say that I agree with Walk the walk about the style of play Bruce plays as frankly not everyone plays like Man City or wolves!

Man united play boring football but manage to win, so do Chelsea .

Football is a results business, it’s about winning

Only my opinion guys before I get slandered.

IMO I think that there are several players in the current squad who could step up to premier league level

but ultimately that’s the decision of the manager and board . And we have got to get there first 👍.

Valid points in certain respects hopeful

However didn’t Keith Wyness state last year that Villa would build 3 squads?

1- to get out of the championship
2- to maintain place in the premiership once promoted
3- to kick on and challenge in the top half of the table

Therefore the current squad was asembled with one thin in mind to achieve promotion.

Well it’s just an opinion bob but people are fee to disagree

It’s all well and good winning but I want to enjoy watching a game of football as opposed to falling to sleep.

Chris my attitude it that of a football fan not a business man.

To be honest my only concern is Aston Villa winning football matches.

IMO the good Dr and Keith Wyness have been nothing but exemplary with the way they have conducted themselves, especially with their passion for our club and taking us back to the premier league.

I’m not sure but I understand Fanatics have been involved with delivering kits to our club via under armour for the last couple of years, so what is the difference with LUKE .

Luke are a local business, one of our own . the club trust them to make it work so why can’t we the fans?

I’m a glass half full kind of guy, I always try to see the best of every situation . And IMO there is nothing fishy about the deal, it’s a business deal which the club believe is the best for Aston Villa .

So far during the dr’s tenure he has made some very good decisions, why would this one be any different?

It’s not unusual for there to be two companies involved with production “example being optical wear. guess sunglasses are not produced by guess, but Infact another company who then put the guess logo on the product which is then sold

Let’s just see what the next few weeks and months bring and go from there .

I hate to say this but I think Brucie should go .

Don’t get me wrong in days gone by Bruce would of got us up . However this was when Football in the championship was hit and hope boring Football .

The two top performing teams presently are Wolves, Bristol City with Brentford not far behind .

The championship has changed whereby the teams are playing more expansive passing Football .

In my opinion someone like Dean Smith would be a great asset .

A villa fan, plays football the right way and would bring the best out of the team and get them playing the right way.

If we are not promoted at the end of this season, for me Brucie will be sacked by the good Dr

Question is who would you replace him with, Mark Hughes would not be the man I would go for

I said this before Bruce was approved appointed, but If it was down to me I would be looking at lee Johnson of Bristol City (subject to Bristol not gaining promotion)
