King Villa keeps up his impressive record of never getting anything right, puma is not the shirt maker, that's 0 out of about 300 now isn't it? 😂 joking aside, the announcement they made today is a bit concerning to be honest, something fishy, I've never heard of "fanatics" and not quite sure what their involvement is, and Luke until now has never made sports wear, this is shown by the shoddy "Luke sports" logo that looks like it's been knocked up by a 4 year old on word art, just for the press release. This really is strange and stinks of the people in charge trying to force something that isn't worth it just for the sake of being "innovative".

Very strange decision, anyone ever heard of "fanatics"? They seem like a kit manufacturer for the likes of Nike, however no one else seem to advertise that fanatics are part of their "technical kit partnership". Hopefully it's all fine and works out well, good to be promoting a Birmingham business, however probably a bad business move for Luke, can't imagine many blue noses buying anything from their anymore😂. At least the design won't be a typical Nike template the same as about 9 other kits.

Agree with the above comments but we have to hope that they know what they are doing.
The logo really is 'retro' ans as Chris says 'chlidlike'.
After watching the short video on the official site I am also wondering about our emblem. No sign of 'prepared' re-appearing despite being told months ago that it was a mistake to remove and that it would be gradually re-introduced.


2.) 24 Apr 2018 18:05:56
I'm never wrong mate. My sources are lol.



30 Mar 2018 10:44:11
Kodjia to be involved tomorrow then, very very good news.


1.) 30 Mar 2018 11:39:55
That's great news about kodjia,
Think top 2 is out of reach if I'm honest
So having him back for play offs is a big boost,

2.) 30 Mar 2018 11:49:37
Now with the big man back shame we are not 3 points or so behind Cardiff,
Them last 2 games for us have really hit us very hard,

3.) 31 Mar 2018 14:01:47
Hate to state the obvious, but were going to need to beat Hull by 4 clear goals to go back third. Not beyond the realms of possibility, but a bit of a stretch methinks.

Villa launch double loan swoop for Leicester's Ulloa and Amartey.
Everyone knows about Ulloa and anyone who watches us play I think can see he'd be brilliant in our team. Didn't know much about Amartey but judging from Leicester fans opinion he sounds like Jedinak with legs, although they say he's not excellent on the ball. Would be ideal to be fair, get Whelan as far away from the team as possible, rotate Jedinak and Amartey to keep everything fresh. Hope this comes off.


1.) 10 Jan 2018 19:39:03
I live as you know in Leicester, and most my friends/ family are crisp fans.
They say the Ulloa deal has been sorted for a long time, since the summer, a loan that becomes permanent if we go up.
They also say that amarty is siht, and would pay us to take him. I’ve never seen the lad. however. they also say this is happening!

2.) 10 Jan 2018 20:01:10
Fingers crossed then, from what’s on twitter amartey has been played out of position a lot so has had a few stinkers. Hope the Ulloa deal comes off ASAP.

{Ed001's Note - Leicester usually play Amartey at right back but he is really a central midfielder.}

3.) 10 Jan 2018 20:10:47
Like I said, I don’t know much of him. Just repeating what’s been said.
Rb is the last position we need a player for anyway!

We could do with another inforcer in the middle.

Anyways. thanks Ed001, Wasn’t expecting you to answer one of my posts till about March April time. that’s when you normally resurface! 😏🤫.

{Ed001's Note - I only go for about 3 days though Flacks, it just feels like longer for you as you miss me so much.}

4.) 10 Jan 2018 20:33:30
Jesus, that’s true. normally feels like 40 days, and 40 nights.

{Ed001's Note - funnily enough I was out wandering in the desert earlier.}

5.) 10 Jan 2018 20:46:18
Just laughed out loud! Lol

Did you happen to have a conversation with a fairly hot bush?!

{Ed001's Note - she wasn't bad at all, but how did you know her name was Bush?}

6.) 10 Jan 2018 21:13:27
I read her diary, was on a couple of stone tablets!

{Ed001's Note - stone tablets? I wouldn't want to swallow a couple of those next time I have a headache!}

7.) 10 Jan 2018 21:16:23
This thread is giving me a headache!

{Ed001's Note - you sound like my missus now.}

8.) 10 Jan 2018 21:38:57

{Ed001's Note - not really, it is more of a Brazilian she has.}

9.) 10 Jan 2018 21:58:49
That’s twice you’ve made me laugh out loud! Lol.

10.) 11 Jan 2018 12:45:37
Dont know bout you laughing out loud flacks the banter between you and edoo1 nearly had me pissing my pants mate. Lol.

{Ed001's Note - glad to hear it mate.}

The s*n reporting Brighton want to push through a 3mil move for Davis. Has to be rubbish, however if we got a big of 8mil+ I'd take it if it meant we could go and buy someone to replace him.


1.) 10 Jan 2018 09:21:16
How about a deal?
Murray + £5m for Davis?
Murray scores on a regular basis, Davis holds the ball up.
Currently we need goals.
Davis is still raw but we need a finisher.

2.) 10 Jan 2018 14:13:25
Do you trust Bruce to bring in a good striker to replace Davis if he was sold?
Davis going nowhere in my opinion.



30 Dec 2017 16:58:42
Pulis, What's the score, Pulis Pulis what's the score?!?! Hahaha. Mainbob if O'hare is half as good as Murphy then I can see why you rave about him so much😉 excellent performance away from home. was too cautious going forward in the first half but second we took more chances in the passing and the movement and deserved our win IMO.

Just need to move the ball faster, look to pop it into players quicker rather than always looking for the ball out wide. It's weird what happens when you take out the player who always has a mistake in him, play one of our best players from last year in his right position and actually play a centre back at centre back!


1.) 30 Dec 2017 17:11:12
Chris I said 5 young players who needed games and Murphy was one of them,
Plus grealish the big difference again,
Bruce must stay with this youth on the bench,
Murphy did well when he came on the only downside to him he keeps getting these injuries,
Nice to see Hayes on the bench as well,
Great performance defended very well.

2.) 30 Dec 2017 17:23:56
See elfick man of match with most pundits,
He was the best player with grealish against brentford, as well.
Fair play to him.

3.) 30 Dec 2017 18:39:54
Bruce didn’t do himself any favours, if Whelan didn’t get ill then Jedinak was starting at CB and Elphic on the bench, players at the end showed its means just as much to them as us. Murphy looked really tidy, Control, holding it up everything he did well.

Kola novice has more or less wrote the villa team talk before the final, some of the things he's said today are ridiculous, never really seen anything from him until today but I can't imagine he's like this all the time because everyone seems to like him.


1.) 24 May 2018 18:34:09
Don’t know who Kola Novice is😂😂😂 it was meant to be Jokanovic.

2.) 24 May 2018 19:58:28
I even googled him Chris 😂😂.



16 May 2018 19:50:39
Just in before we even get close to the final next week, the year we went down we watched a team who put in 50% every week, we're only here for a pay check and didn't care to hide that. We sung nearly every week "we want our Villa back" and after watching the last two games, irrelevant of the result next week, we've got our Villa back. These lads genuinely care and put in 200% for us, last night we wasn't our best in terms of football, no where near the play we have seen at points this season, however in terms of effort, I haven't seen a Villa team give as much as that in a long time. I can't think of a loan player who has give us as much as Snodgrass has, if you didn't know better watching last night you'd think he'd played here all his life and Villa was his boyhood team. Hourihane the same, when you thought they was knackered last night and someone would be breaking through, out of no where one of them would come flying from no where and get the ball back. You could go through every player but they would 100% run through walls through brick walls to get the result last night. The final is 90 minutes and if we bring that level of effort and even a half of the football and endeavour we did against Bristol, Wolves then I think we definitely have enough to win, Fulham are very good and unlucky to not make automatics but they bottled it last year, bottled the chance to go up automatic on the last day against Blues and they are 110% beatable, like everyone I'm nervous but they aren't Barcelona, let's play our game and get back to where we belong. I hope and pray we go and get this result, for us the fans, for the players themselves and mostly for Bruce after the year his had. But as I started off with, irrelevant of the result, we have for the first time in a long time a manager who is 100% commited, and a squad who want to play for us and give us everything they've got. We've got our Villa back.


1.) 16 May 2018 20:29:30
Chris, great post . As you say we now have our Villa back .



13 May 2018 09:27:22
Such a professional performance yesterday, youarent going to smash a tiny Pulis side 3/ 4 nil in their home leg of a play off, the way he sets up it isn't going to happen. We didn't give them a second to breathe as soon as it got into their midfield and wingers, dealt with Adama the best we could have hoped for and nicked a goal, really could have been 2. I think that's the biggest benefit of signing experienced players the last two years, they know how to manage these games and hopefully we can take advantage of that now.




04 May 2018 21:51:30
Just watched the cup final, brilliant ending, Sarkic was quality in the shootout, if someone can coach him on set pieces he'll be ready to be number 2 next season. I can see why O'hare hasn't been trusted by the senior staff in league games, the other night he was in and out the game and couldn't get a foot hold but tonight he never got into it, didn't lift his head up and offered next to nothing. Mitch Clarke reads the game so well, needs to be given more time in his natural position, he isn't a left back but his reading of the game means he can do a decent job there. Should be proud of themselves and go on and win the play offs.




01 May 2018 21:11:48
Just watched the under 23's and whilst they can't defend for toffee which makes for a good show, RHM is ready for the first team, I can see why O'Hare hasn't had that many chances after he cup cameos and Sarkic is ready to be a number 2 next season.

Lots of options if we go up, if we don’t these players won’t come near with a barge pole.

I agree, should be offered player coach position, everyone saw 2 years ago he isn’t really good enough to be a premier league full back week in week out, however sign someone for the RB position, use Hutton as number 2. Given his attitude and commitment he will work and fight to regain his position, push the new RB to be the best possible player they can. Win win situation.

Sod Wembley mate Cardiff are going to wobble watch, 4 straight defeats coming up for them and we are going to win our last 8😂 we can dream. But yea Tony, Wyness and around seem to have a clue what their doing, if we go up it would be really exciting times, and we can have some good threads on here over the summer about transfers and such.

I don’t disagree with you mate about Terry, but reports last week is he’s staying, you even said after the fan meeting “Terry will definitely be a villa player” if we go up, did you forget that? 😂 overall we need to learn from past mistakes, Bruce has done that so far in his transfer windows, personally I’d say all his signings have been minimum a 6/ 10 so far, and even better when you look at the prices we paid (hogan excluded) . Main thing we need to take forward is the contracts we hand out, look at Richards for example, you don’t give a player with that injury recorded a huge pay slip for 3+ years. I trust the board if we go up or if we don’t, they seem to be astute in the market and I think if we go up there will be some very exciting signings.

Richards still has a year left on his contract, Lansbury I can see where your coming from but he will probably stay, Bree isn’t going anywhere, if we go up Terry will stay on and i'd put money on Johnstone coming back, Hutton isn’t a foregone conclusion yet either. The rest I can see what your saying but don’t think all of the 15 you’ve mentioned will be going, probably more like 7/ 8 of them.

Pick your spot and stick to it, block out the crowd and it’s exactly the same as taking one on a training ground - but that’s easier said than done.

If you don’t get to the green man before 11 there’s no point in trying, the whetherspoons was decent after the semi final and it’s normal weatherspoons prices rather than £6 a pint.

Boarding at Solihull mate, just had a look and now it’s saying the same train at 9 will take us direct. My tickets definitely say change at wycombe but the first train is the same so probably just stay on to Wembley. Very weird.
