So if Martinez was to come in, would that mean Henry would be his number 2.
The plot thickens.


1.) 08 Oct 2018 20:15:36
Id have Martinez good manager and he knows the championship.

2.) 09 Oct 2018 17:49:02
Villa4ever make your mind up you wanted Brendon Rodgers yesterday now it’s Martinez and before that it was Henry who will you want tomorrow coco the clown.
I’m just glad you’re not in the decision making as your always posting absolute nonsense all the time and supporters who may post on here aren’t going to because it’s a circus.
You are to this forum what Diane Abbot is to economics and mathematics lol.



07 Oct 2018 16:48:22
It seems this rumour about Henry and Terry is gaining momentum, and is not going away.
This could be very exiting if true.
I know it would not guarantee success, but we would have arguably the best striker and defender we have seen in this country for the last 20years.
If this happens I hope we can keep the likes of Delaney and McDonald at the club, I say this because they are Villa through and through, and there is very little wrong with our reserve and youth set up.
I am sure a roll for Stan Petrov could be found on the coaching side of things, that would give us a set up that has it all.
I think it would be nice to show Stan a bit of faith, after all he was a gladiator for us in midfield.


1.) 07 Oct 2018 17:03:03
I’d love that Dave. I hope they make an announcement soon, so who ever it is has this break to try and add some positivity to the club.

2.) 07 Oct 2018 17:26:38
Agree surely there's a coaching role Stan could do, I hope these rumours are true about jt n henry, the players would listen to those 2 there winners, Brendan Rodgers would be good, either i'm a happy bunny 😁😁.



03 Oct 2018 16:24:31
I will direct this at you Mainbob, simply because you are the last to post.
I have to say, I am disgusted with the attitude of some on here, you are all wallowing in the incident with Bruce last night, unbelievable and shameful.
You all think you are so funny with the kind of remarks you are making, all I can say is how would you feel if it was your Mother or Father coming under the same kind of abuse, Just think about it.
I want a change in management as much as anyone, but my god, I have more dignity than that.
The guy who threw the cabbage at Steve Bruce is a total person and an imbecile and should be banned for life if he is identified.
It`s all we and good venting your disapproval towards someone but to throw missiles of any description is moronic.
Please don't reply to me if you are backing this type of behaviour, instead go and spend some time growing up.
My patience on here is being severely tested, Villa fans it's a joke, have some bloody dignity and pride.
From a true Villa fan, not a hooligan.


1.) 03 Oct 2018 17:13:17
I don't think you should post on here if you don't want people to disagree with you.
Everyone is entitled to their opinion and my opinion is that someone throwing a cabbage at Steve Bruce is quite funny.
If my mother or father was in a high profile, highly paid position and someone threw a cabbage at them, I don't think it would upset me too much.

2.) 03 Oct 2018 17:30:55
If you read my post this morning I was disgusted with the fans last night and I did a big post on it,
I defended Bruce and was really sorry how he was treated,
Amazed you have picked out me to vent your anger.

3.) 03 Oct 2018 17:44:26
Prob that’s fine mate, if someone does throw a cabbage at you mom, I hope for your sake it doesn`t hit her square in the face, because it would hurt.
I don’t mind people replying cock, I will talk all day to people who are sensible with valid opinions.
In my opinion yours is not valid, its dangerous is it not?
I am sure you could find some Doc Martins about if you tried, I will keep my eyes open.

4.) 03 Oct 2018 17:56:19
Bob Yes that was this morning but you have followed suit with other comments,
And I did point out that I said your name because you posted last.
That was abuse last night, and you can dress it up all you like, its not on mate, end of.
Nothing personal, you know how I feel about abuse I have backed you up many times on here in the past.

5.) 04 Oct 2018 07:22:31
Dave what have I said that's got your goat,
Please enlighten me.

6.) 04 Oct 2018 07:34:06
I think if my Father was earning 2 Million a year, with 40 years experience, and managing one of the largest football clubs in the country he would have a thick enough skin to know this is football.

The cabbage was disgraceful but some of the comments on here are comical, I don't condone it by any stretch and hoped Villa fans would have more class but surely you have all seen much worse incidents at other clubs.

Villa fans amaze me, we have been shouting to get Bruce removed for months and now he is gone we focus and argue about the manner in which he was removed - Let's look forward, together.

7.) 04 Oct 2018 08:37:40

Hear hear let's all move on and support whoever is our next manager.

8.) 08 Oct 2018 15:22:26
i would applaud the choice of vegetable.



31 Jan 2018 22:05:15
Confirmed, Grabbon signs.




31 Jan 2018 18:06:25
Deal agreed for Grabban.
Season loan.


1.) 31 Jan 2018 18:37:55
12 goals in a poor Sunderland side, good addition, something different off the bench.

2.) 31 Jan 2018 19:02:15
I would go 442 now.

3.) 31 Jan 2018 19:23:39
I can’t find the deal done anywhere. are you sure?

4.) 31 Jan 2018 19:34:38
I have said deal agreed Flackie, on sky sports.

5.) 31 Jan 2018 19:52:52
It is listed at 16.36 at the transfer centre.

6.) 31 Jan 2018 20:05:22
Ive herd rumour defoe has been seen in birmingham this evening.

7.) 31 Jan 2018 20:50:10
Dave I see that now, thank you!
But I’m assuming it’s not gone through as not anywhere else?

8.) 31 Jan 2018 21:09:41
Everyone reported done earlier, Birmingham Mail, sky, Alan Nixon, but then BBC WM at the same time tweeted saying they’d been told the deal isn’t close to being done, weird one.

9.) 01 Feb 2018 09:14:21
Grabban looks a ok signing,
He is a journey man with so many clubs but we could be his team to get him to settle
Some reading up on him seems me to think he could have a attitude problem but we will wait and see on that,
But he scores goals at end of day and that's why we got him
No better time to start than against Burton on Saturday,

Three words; Fan-ta-stick.


1.) 10 Nov 2018 18:20:28
Super performance could have been easily 6 goals.
Mcginn fantastic.
Wonder what Bruce is thinking now watching a proper football team,

2.) 10 Nov 2018 19:13:38
Now that is better, the real Villa turned up today with a leader who cares about us.

3.) 11 Nov 2018 08:50:59
Just imagine if deano was installed in pre-season!
He could have brought in his players and we could well be top of the pile,
He is the type of manager I have been waiting for years,
It could well have gone pear-shaped if we had got in Henry!



09 Nov 2018 17:39:14
Sorry lads typo error, hit the number 1 twice.
Well done Kenn and you Davedean, I had to get the spoon out in the end, it was far too quiet on here.
Thank you all for your replies, it just shows even if there is no activity on here we are all hovering waiting to pounce.
Oldvillan been trying to find her purse for years mate, fed up now keep finding breadcrumbs and used tissues, haha


1.) 09 Nov 2018 23:25:31
Dave, at least you got the chatter going
Onwards and Upwards Villaforever.



08 Nov 2018 15:17:02
Dean Smith is looking to spend 115mil in January.


1.) 08 Nov 2018 15:49:15
Im looking to spend £10k but unfortunately have only £10.

2.) 08 Nov 2018 23:07:42
Dave don’t know where you’ve, got that from, but sounds brilliant if it’s right . You know you said it’s to quiet on here, I hope this isn’t just your way of livening it up HaHa
Onwards and Upwards Villaforever.

3.) 09 Nov 2018 08:49:44
Villadave have you been on the wacky backy!
115 mill😁😁
Hope your right mate anyway!
Where's that pig again?
Just gone past window!

4.) 09 Nov 2018 10:15:54
Hi Dave, From where does this info come?
NSEW will want an instant return for this sort of money but it could suggest that they are intent on following Man City up the league (s)
With this sort of money I would want firstly a midfield general, a leader, a player to drive others, a motivator.
We lack this type of player, too many nice guys.
They say that one man can't make a team but all successful teams do have a strong middle man who commands respect. We had one last year!
Is there such a man in the English leagues that we could buy or is abroad where we will look.
Could we find an English player or will we go elsewhere?
I am sure that we are all waiting impatiently to see the future that we want.

5.) 09 Nov 2018 11:21:10
Well villadave. where is the proof in your 115mill statement?
I will be utterly amazed if you are correct,
But I could wake up and dream I suppose.

6.) 09 Nov 2018 11:45:16

Was this your big spoon stirring moment as promised below Dave .

I think you managed to get a few bites from the circling great whites 😱😂😜.

7.) 09 Nov 2018 13:43:51
Looks like our owners are thinking of renaming villa park next season because of FFP I am all for that we should of let randy do it years ago when we was on the cusp of top four but we had to many old schools moaning about it.

8.) 09 Nov 2018 14:19:04
Not a problem for me,
It's always villa park for me anyway,
They are saying villa will be in the FULL name.



07 Nov 2018 15:25:46
Hello, anybody there.
I take it everybody must be very happy and content.
Surely that has to be a good thing.


1.) 07 Nov 2018 15:55:40
Dave, not sure how long it will last . Always somebody with an axe to grind HaHa
Onwards&Upwards Villaforever.

2.) 07 Nov 2018 16:42:04
Hi Davedean, starting to miss it mate, I will get the spoon out soon and stir things up a bit haha,

3.) 07 Nov 2018 18:08:35
Where’s WtW, when you need him, now he wound everybody up .

4.) 08 Nov 2018 08:44:43
It is very quite on here.
Think most fans are more content with how things are going,
They seem happy with the more attacking intent now all we need is more wins to get us in the mix running up the Christmas.



25 Oct 2018 14:16:17
Villa4eva, In reply to your post lower down, at last, someone who has seen sense.
We are all set up to move on now, but unfortunately I don't think a lot of the squad are.
When Dean Smith starts to get his own players in who can play his brand of football, and who will play for the shirt and its value in the game rather than self-satisfaction, we will move forward.
His hands are pretty much tied at the moment, so can only use what he has.
I have said it before and I will say it again, the squad we have are mind set, and we all know the saying you can`t teach an old dog new tricks.
They are trying for sure, but you can see and feel a reluctance to venture from that comfort zone they are used too.
Grealish has to be one of the most annoying players in the game, if he went up a gear, got into the box quicker, and tried shooting, he would score more goals, and we would get more penalties, the bloke keeps checking his runs far too often when pushing on would be more productive.
Hogan will never do any good with the players we have at the club, he makes his runs but nobody sees it, Grealish is a big culprit, and like Mainbob said he needs dropping, he is not indispensable.
One thing I noticed again, we won a free kick out on the left 4-5 mins left, so what do we do, take it short and give the ball away, Grealish involved again, mind blowing.

He was played in a 4-2-3-1 formation, with someone like Romaine Sawyers in support of him.
It was stated that he would be used as the main man and it was the theory that he was a chances to goals player, the example being, give him chances and he will score.
Josh McEachran and Ryan Woods were always looking to play him in through the middle, and it worked well for them.
Hogan is an 18yd box player and needs feeding with through ball`s, he can create his own chances but if he does not get the ball he can drift out of games so must be kept involved.
Similar players were, A Cole, and R Fowler.
If we keep him we must play to his strengths, and that means getting the ball in the box as soon and as often as possible and support him as a team.
I am not sure we can do that with the players we have.

Hnchmch, we are here again, one game and you don’t trust him 100%, why say that.
Then you say he seems the right man for Villa, blimey we have to be the most cynical fans in the country.
This guy is Villa through and through, give him some credit, and trust.
I would like to know your reasons for not trusting him, what has he done wrong, has he offended you, has he told any lies, has he slated anyone, are his training methods out of date, please tell me.

I feel exactly the same 4eva, I hate the international breaks.
I am Villa fan and would rather watch Villa play a league game than watch England against Brazil in a world cup final.
I have a loyalty to Villa that runs through my veins.
I think that these internationals are a total waste of time and money, I dare say Rooney might think differently.

I vowed I would not talk about SB any more, but.
I have to say oldvillan I think SB was a basic manager anyway, and is very limited in many ways.
I don’t think he has or had any other way of setting his teams up, and he was totally clueless when it came to technical and tactical awareness.
He stabilised the club agreed, and I thank him for that, but you can only tread water for so long, and that is what we were doing, and we were getting very tired.
