Rodrigo link got any weight behind it or made up?

Are we about to see another Wesley type signing where no ones knows it's coming until it's more or less done. Apparently a 15M fee with Man City has been agreed for Douglas Luiz. Some of you may remember they signed him last year but couldn't get him a work permit so he went out on loan to Girona, apparently work permit isn't an issue now, so we're bringing him in as the CDM. A bit annoying they've input a buy back option so if he's any good they'll take him back, but in Purslow and Dean we trust. Love how they are just destroying all the fake ITK's.

Douglas Luiz bargain of the summer?
Apparently highly regarded by Pep so must be good.

2.) 12 Jul 2019 09:29:50
This a great signing did well in spanish league and pep rates him cb also in today aswell fee agreed for winger just need gk, n striker.

3.) 12 Jul 2019 10:24:15
Looks a good addition to be fair even though I know nothing about him really .

Guillem Balague the Spanish reporter says this guy is class and to be honest he know a thing or too about players .

Only disappointing thing is the buy back clause, but hey just shows how highly thought of he is by Man City.



11 Jul 2019 10:21:20
Konsa in, that's 2 players for every position along the back 4 now, brilliant work.

If they can follow this up with a keeper, defensive midfielder, winger and a striker I think we'd be set for a solid season.

My picks would be Butland, Phillips, Trezeguet or Harry Wilson and Maupay.


1.) 11 Jul 2019 10:57:11
According to BM Villa have persuaded Trezeguet‘s club to let him leave.
Another one on the way to Villa Park?

2.) 11 Jul 2019 11:05:58
But they’re all championship players.

3.) 11 Jul 2019 11:47:36
I have heard Villas offer for Trezeguet is £9.9m.

4.) 11 Jul 2019 12:16:04
Is that sour grapes because the Dingles didn’t get Konsa Vino? 🤷🏼‍♂️ Looking at YouTube of him there’s a hell of a lot of ‘Welcome to Wolves’ comments 🤔


5.) 11 Jul 2019 12:34:38
The dingles really are upset at the minute, can’t see why, it’s only a longer season with more games yet no signings for them, are Fosun bored? Have they realised the fan base they are trying to bring forward will always be stuck in the dark ages? Are the rumours they are trying to sell up true? Where’s the ground expansion? Where are the fans that will fill it? Tune in next time to find out.

6.) 11 Jul 2019 13:55:12
Where has the W 88
gone off our shirts?

7.) 11 Jul 2019 18:35:17
Dont be worried for what were doing worry bout your own team .

8.) 11 Jul 2019 20:43:42
Are these dingles still rocking up on our page!

Don’t worry fella form is temporary, class is permanent.

9.) 11 Jul 2019 21:48:41
Good question Moutinho, I too was wondering why a sponsor would be willing to offer a newly promoted team double what they were offering a team in Europe, then I remembered. the team in Europe is wolves and the newly promoted side is Aston Villa, so makes perfect sense.



13 Jun 2019 14:50:40
Wesley Moares then, come out of no where which shows it's a tighter ship than previous regimes, no ones reported this and all of a sudden it's coming out as done and dusted.

He looks like a Brazilian Tammy, big strong, 10 goals and 9 assists in 28 games. The last striker we got from the Belgium League didn't do to badly. Big Price, but if you want quality sometimes you have to pay.


1.) 13 Jun 2019 15:13:34
Some good footage here:

2.) 13 Jun 2019 15:39:56
This guys a beast mate its a good signing.

3.) 13 Jun 2019 15:42:30
Chris, looks like he turned down, a few good clubs, to come to Villa . They must fancy him, to give him a 5 year contract, he certainly looks the part .
Onwards&Upwards Villaforever.

4.) 13 Jun 2019 17:34:08
Leeds would have spent more.

5.) 13 Jun 2019 18:15:09
So we got spurs first game.

6.) 13 Jun 2019 18:27:24
AVFC now confirmed Moraes deal.



13 Jun 2019 07:27:52
Kalvin Phillips 14mil bid going in apparently, sounds good to me. A spine of Butland Mings Phillips Grealish, keeps the attitude and team spirit in line I think, between them and say Mcginn, Chester they've got enough about them to get everyone involved so we won't see things like we did 4 years ago with the fractures in the squad.


1.) 13 Jun 2019 12:31:33
Don't think we'll get his lad for anything less than £20m. Would be good signing even at that level.
Just need to start getting one or two signings done now.

2.) 13 Jun 2019 12:50:22
Players and managers are all still away on holiday so don't expect much to happen soon, another week or two is when I believe it will all start to happen, I expect mings and hause to be first then the new faces will be targeted.

3.) 13 Jun 2019 15:15:38
Would love to get Phillips but I'm not sure it will happen - he's essentially their version of Jack and the fans are already kicking off about the rumours.

Watched the game yesterday, didn't play the best but winning when not on form is a good sign, few thoughts on the team:

Heaton - absolute worldie
Targett - brilliant going forward, lacks positioning at the back
Hourihane - set pieces on point as usual, not a brilliant option as a DM though, love it when he plays further up and makes them runs between the centre back and full back though, causes problems
Jota - technically brilliant but don't know if he's quick and physical enough for the prem, probably better suited down the middle, Carlos Gil mark 2
El ghazi - hope the injury isn't too bad, he's stepping up to the plate
Wesley - not a natural finisher IMO, brilliant physicality and decent with his feet just needs to learn when to lay it off a bit quicker instead of holding on to it
Grealish - the main man as usual, captaincy seems to have give him a leadership boost, not afraid to get in peoples faces, similar to JT

Buzzing for next week, think we need 2 more though, striker and winger. Maupay and Benrahma/ lolley/ Bowen would do for me.


1.) 04 Aug 2019 17:27:23
Agree with you post Chris,
I personally do not think we are after maupay .
The papers are putting 2+2 together and thinking because he played under Smith we are after him.

Benrahma is the one that Smith wants more than anyone.
He called him a genius while at brentford and I am convinced he will sign for us.
I like Bowen and lilley but don't think we are after them.
I've got this feeling that Kent from liverpool for around the 8 mill mark is one we are after.

Seem him a few times but he is very inconsistent either very good or bone average.
Talk online saying we are getting a big record signing?
Not sure of that to be honest.
Interesting to see who we bring in.

2.) 04 Aug 2019 21:35:06
I like Kent aswell mate, I read they want close to 20mil for him however. Best thing about him is he is both footed, and just as comfortable on either, you don’t get that anymore, so many players look awkward because they can’t or won’t use their weaker foot, I remember seeing Kent in a preseason game take a corner on the left side with his right foot and then from the following corner on the right side take it with his left foot.



01 Aug 2019 18:28:20
Not to be ungrateful after a brilliant window, but Saint Maximin for 17 million is a ridiculously good deal for Newcastle.




30 Jul 2019 09:30:13
Just food for thought. The summer transfer window 15/ 16, we lost Benteke and Delph, we didn't have a say in that really they wanted to leave. Out of choice we sold Weimann, Lowton and Enda Stevens. In terms of arrivals Sherwood has since come out and said that the majority of his choices were ignored, the likes of Adebayor and Andros Townsend, so that implies that the other British signings were his ie lescott, Richards. Out of the signings made from the money ball approach (Gueye, Veretout, Ayew, Amavi, Traore, Gustede) 4/ 6 will be playing European football next year, 2 will be playing premier league and one will be playing for the french champions. Begs the question was that method that flawed? If we had gone and got 2 centre backs from that same method instead of lescott and Richards would we have still gone down? Was it just incompetent managers?


1.) 30 Jul 2019 16:56:55
I can see your thoughts on this chris, but all these players may not have progressed in the same way had they all played in the same team.
Sessegnon has not improved at all, simply because Fulham have gone backwards, had they done what Wolves have done I think he would be a better player.
I do understand your point though.



19 Jul 2019 08:32:30
Mings Engels Konsa
Targett Mcginn luis Guilbert
Grealish Wesley El Ghazi


I'd be quite happy with that team starting against spurs.


1.) 19 Jul 2019 11:44:02
Thing is nakamba wants to move because he not playing I can't imagine him comeing to us and sitting on the bench!

2.) 19 Jul 2019 12:36:28
Can’t see this to be honest Chris but then I’m not deano so who knows.



09 Jul 2019 09:49:38
Whatever happened to Radoja? We couldn't get a work permit in jan and he was out of contract this summer for Celta, has he signed someone? Could we go back in?


1.) 09 Jul 2019 15:01:08
I would go for rongier he looks a very decent player.

2.) 09 Jul 2019 16:17:40
Hi Bob, back again mate, hope you and your good lady are still ok.

3.) 10 Jul 2019 12:00:37
We are both ok but not brilliant.,
Thanks for asking dave,
Hope you and your family are well, .
I don't post to often now I get very tired.
But pleased to see our team take shape and looking forward to a great season.

Probably needed another striker/ winger after letting green go, but other than that excellent business on paper.

But if someone in and around villa tells you stuff that never comes off, why are you still listening to them?

Yea that’s the type I was thinking of, quick nippy natural finisher, god knows who, Mbappe? 😂.

07 Aug 2019 09:23:55
Fair enough😂 I just think we need a finisher, sounds stupid but Michael Owen type before he got crocked, quick, nippy, can get in behind and at home in the box, I would have loved Maupay but that ships sailed. I see Watford still can’t agree a fee for Sarr, he’s can play both positions winger and striker, goal scoring record isn’t there but some players suit premier league better. Glad I’m not the one who’s got to find one, going to be a busy two days.

6 foot 3, target man, surely we need something different to that.
