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.



13 Dec 2017 19:06:30
Ollie McBurnie has just announced he's joining Villa, other than he's a youth player for Swansea, anyone got a clue about him?


1.) 13 Dec 2017 20:06:56
Scored 8 goals his whole career, 5 in non league and 3 in league 2, doesn’t sound promising.

2.) 14 Dec 2017 07:20:07
Chris, is there a link to where he says he's joining Villa?

3.) 14 Dec 2017 12:48:33
Someone wrote to him on his Instagram “join the villa”, he replied “I am”. Pictures are everywhere, started following half the team last night on twitter as well.

4.) 14 Dec 2017 16:55:19
Is this the best striker Bruce can find?
God help us all if these rummors are true.

5.) 15 Dec 2017 08:38:40
It's called cover.

6.) 15 Dec 2017 08:44:53
MainBob I don't think we should knock him until we have seen him. As fans this is sometimes our problem I believe we should give the lad a chance.

7.) 15 Dec 2017 09:01:31
We have young players in the under 21s who need to be given a chance as well,
O'hare/ hayes/ mckirdey/ clark/ sulaman
Is this kid mcburnie any better than what we have got now?
We need a experienced striker on loan to give Davis a helping hand in my opinion.



02 Aug 2017 11:27:39
Bruce said the weekend he was looking to have Jack as a main stay in the team and really have the team play around him and build them around how to get the best out of him. Makes sense because Bruce has started using formations with a number 10 role which he didn't at all last year and weirdly enough after 3 years Jacks numbers changed to the number 10.

Read today it could be 6 months out with him, but his dad has said 2 or 3, hope its the latter. Should be able to keep fit as well given it's a kidney injury he should be able to do lots of lightweight stuff.

That will do.


1.) 14 Jan 2018 08:43:51
Great win and solid performance
Was worried about bringing in terry and whelan but it worked,
Was impressed with Thor in whelans place,
Keep this type of performance up for rest of season and we will not be far away,
Come on you lions!



13 Jan 2018 16:36:46
What is going on with Jedinak this season? He's so crucial to us doing well imo but he can't stay fit for longer than five minutes.


1.) 13 Jan 2018 17:06:09
Jedi crocked again?
Can not seem to keep a settled side,
As to Terry coming in I am disappointed for elfick he has been one of our best defenders last 3 games,
This is what Bruce seems to do on a regular basis,
Just hope it does not backfire on us,
As for Whelan another one I am worried about
Notts forest do have pace in middle and up top and let's hope he has a better game this time,

2.) 13 Jan 2018 17:21:36
Trading stats for todays game point to 2.5 - 3.5 goals being scored, played forest 125 times won 58 lost 28 and drawn 29.
Stats say most likely a draw, but we could take the game plus 1 maybe 2 if we all turn up.
Fingers and legs crossed.

3.) 13 Jan 2018 19:40:25
Sorry folks lost 38 not 28.



30 Dec 2017 14:11:36
Murphy, Doyle Hayes and O'Hare in the squad, Mainbob your wish has been granted.


1.) 30 Dec 2017 14:35:48
Come on son! ( that's for chris)
Why is Davis out of squad?
Why is our best player last 2 matches grealish dropped?
Why is anomah still in team after very poor performances?

2.) 30 Dec 2017 14:45:02
One thing for certain keep the ball on the deck,
Pulis playing with 4 6ft + giants in defence,
Waste of time humping balls up to Hogan would you agree,

3.) 30 Dec 2017 14:57:27
It has be written in contract with omouha to play when fit. No other reason.



29 Dec 2017 23:18:43
Middlesbrough seem to be a lot like us, beat the teams below them but lose to the teams around them, they've lost to;
Wolves, Cardiff, Norwich, Leeds, Derby, Bristol - along with a few teams int he bottom half. Tomorrow we have to get at them, forget the new manager, forget that we're away and their above us, we need to go for the win, get on the front foot, ask them every question we've got and go for it all or nothing. Forget Draws away from home are a good result or these points here and there add up, we need a win. We have the squad, we have the options, let's go and get it for once. Time to turn this around, starting with a win, hope the players turn up with some self respect and some self confidence, stop moping around looking at the floor feeling sorry for themselves, your here for a reason, stand up and be counted, have a bit of confidence, better yet a tiny bit of arrogance. I'd take any win but one that shows quality and dominance will really turn this run around. Come on you villa boys!


1.) 30 Dec 2017 09:46:05
Perfectly put Chris.
There players going be nervous aswell playing under a new manager and not wanting make a mistake. Let's get inot them. Big challenges and have a shot from distance. Worse thing being a keeper is having a long range shot in first 10 mins.



28 Dec 2017 13:55:10
Forget the manager for a minute, with Green and Terry coming back and everyone bar Kodjia near full fitness, who would you sign in January (Realistic) and who would be making your starting 11 to drag us back into the play offs?
I'd get Ulloa, start games with:
Hutton Chester Terry Taylor
Adomah Jedinak Hourihane Green
Hogan Ulloa
Strict instructions for the wide men to hug the touchline and get crosses in non stop, Jedinak to play directly in front of the back four challenge everything in the air and screen the defense, Hourihane to get us moving forward always looking for an out ball and possible balls over the back line, Hogan to play off Ulloa always playing for knock downs/ ons and balls between the lines and any scraps in the box.

If the other team are playing to stop hogans movement in behind and playing deep, get him off and put on Grealish in a number 10 and get him to unlock their defence on the edge of their box.
If they are playing to battle Ulloa and getting physical then bring on Davis and let them deal with two physical centre forwards and isolate each centre half's let them try and defend two big men from crosses.
With a bench of Davis, Snodgrass, Grealish, Lansbury, Elphic and Elmo we should be able to adjust to any challenge, if they are answering our plan A then give them Plan B and C and see if they can cope with all that.
The season isn't over, even with Bruce in charge, if repeat the first half of the season then we will finish on 76 points, that would of got play offs in 3 of the last 5 seasons. So if Bruce goes or stays, we are still in the mix at this minute, hopefully something changes, manager or results, I don't mind, before it's too late!


1.) 28 Dec 2017 14:45:12
Chris I Agree about ulloa but what's all this plan a plan b plan c?
Bruce only does one plan and if that fails we lose,
Have not got a problem with your team,
But the issue is who will the manager play?
Whelan will be in there I am sure,
Does not matter how many mistakes he makes he plays
It's true we have many games left but the next 2 are both must wins to get us back in play off places.
Lose these 2 and 11th - 13th could be our place position at end of day,
I don't go with this injury crisis being our problem,
Whoever plays needs to step up and show the desire needed to get results,
I don't see this with villa at all,
Bruce sticks to the same players who are not performing week to week,
Some players in the under 23s need to be used from the bench.

2.) 28 Dec 2017 14:48:32
I agree with Ulloa for me he a must. Would like Ings aswell but only if hogan goes.
Me personally i send snoddy back hasn't offered anything and walks around thinking he to big for club.
Also send omunu back don't rate him and we have enough midfielders and youngsters who can come in.
I think we need 2 forwards to come in and maybe a cb if there is one of quality who will play each week.

3.) 28 Dec 2017 14:49:27

I would play o'hare up top with ulloa,
Otherwise I would keep the side you picked,

4.) 28 Dec 2017 14:53:21
Mainbob the first line literally said “forget the manager” so I don’t know why your going on about he doesn’t have a plan b and Whelan will definitely play, I said who will you play. I didn’t get much further than that because you clearly missed the point but I’m guessing you want half the world beating youth team we’ve got in the first 11 before Barcelona or Madrid snap them up.

5.) 28 Dec 2017 16:00:25
Ok I got your post wrong,
As for the youth are they any worse than the rubbish on show,
Look at the championship teams and see how many play young vibrant players then look at villa,
And when I big up the young players in our under 23s I'm not talking about everybody should get a look into the first team,
Hayes, o'hare, sulaman, Clark, Murphy, are my 5 players who need to be looked at,

6.) 28 Dec 2017 17:01:53
chris the defence is al that's good about your team. the rest are useless.

7.) 28 Dec 2017 17:16:53
*Suliman. How many times have you actually seen them play? And against who? That fills you with so much confidence.

8.) 28 Dec 2017 18:52:59
Chris I agree with your team but if you are playing 2 in midfield u can't ask one to just sit and protect the back 4. Hourihane would be over ran. And to be fair I think grealish has been decent since coming back.

9.) 28 Dec 2017 19:07:42
“The rest of your team is useless” who would you pick then villajk, their our main players, shall we just give up then if their useless? Season over then. Not like most of them players don’t have us 3 points off the play offs without playing to their strengths. And you can easily have a midfielder screen the back four in a two and not get over run, he wouldn’t be glued to the spot rich, look at Leicester with Drinkwater and Kante (albeit kante has the legs), Watford did it for a while last season, Burnley do it regular, we’ve done it in the past under MON. I’d like to get jack in the team but then you either have to sacrifice the wide men or play one up top, which personally I don’t think either would work. Going 3 at the back would fit wide men, 2 up top and grealish in a 10, but I don’t think we have the overall squad to do that.

10.) 28 Dec 2017 21:38:14
He is glued to the spot tho. We havnt got a kante.

11.) 29 Dec 2017 08:57:00

I have seen the under23s play many times this season
, so how many times have you seen them to disregard sullaman as a decent player?
I prefer watching them to our first team,
So that's your answer!

12.) 29 Dec 2017 09:29:28
You can’t even spell his name that’s how many times you’ve watched them.

13.) 29 Dec 2017 12:05:47

Haven’t heard it but he was awful at blues and doesn’t really fit the mound of striker we need. Bruce said today we are close to one loan which I’m guessing is Ulloa, hopefully get it over the line before Barnsley at home.

This would be the second parking ticket of the year, however these two genuinely believe the crap they spew out, without evidence, no rhyme or reason, it’s all crystal clear to them, so there’s no point even wasting a ticket on them🙈😂.

Naismith was quality at Everton, seems to have just lost confidence or form since he left. I like Lambert to be honest, his football was awful and his post match interviews were shocking but he kept us in the league with little to no money, some of his signings were absolute bargains and excellent players and he did deliver one occasion, Chelsea at home 1-0, stoke away 4-1. He was honest, respectable and did a job that after he left others with a bigger budget failed to do. So fair play to him, apparently he blew the stoke board away with his knowledge of the squad and his plan going forward so I wish him all the best.

“Playing to his strength” how? He’s doing exactly what all the “he needs the right service” singers were saying he couldn’t, scoring headers, winning balls in the air and adapting. I think Scott’s adapted to suit is more than we’ve adapted to suit us, no doubt Steve Agnew coming in have helped but he’s in form at the minute and making use of any service he gets. Just shows he’s not a one trick pony who needs “the right kind of service” as we’ve heard for the last 12 months.

I agree with Snodgrass, although he is in a purple patch at minute he does lack that bit of pace, he gets away with it in this league but premier league would be different, probably why he played behind the striker at Hull. His experience showed yesterday though, he had their fullback on strings, even in situations where we should have lost the ball he would buy a foul from nothing.

must be a good father son thing to do - I normally go with my old man, usually the Tavern now, for the pork roll more than anything😂 should be in there before blues, normally a few of us, always more when the blues are in town. Last year was brilliant, didn’t leave there till late after the game, would love to smash them but a flabby winner made the day last time.
