rumour is gabby is going to retire surely he could play on at 31? Hard to think his our all top leading scorer.

walk.the.walk

1.) 22 Apr 2018 22:00:25
I guess his hamstrings are past repair now. With the current pace of the game and the players we already have I can't see him being able to play a deeper role either.

What ever league we are in next season it looks like there's going to be a clear out with Gabby Hutton Terry Bunn Micah Richards Tishbola grabban Onomah Johnstone tuanzebe Lansbury Ross McCormick bree gill gollini that's 15 players all leaving that will free up some wage and give us licence to spend big again if we are in the championship in the premier league FFP doesn't matter but with all these players leaving its going to be a huge summer for the club no matter what if Bruce doesn't get us up do you give him another go or freshen it up with a new manager in the summer there will be a few available.

walk.the.walk

1.) 24 Mar 2018 18:33:41
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.


2.) 24 Mar 2018 19:12:42
Only time wil tell chris but come on Terry at his age in the premier League have you seen how fast it is now days. Terry should retire at the end of the season his been great but age is against him now in the premier League he would get destroyed by pace but his been a incredible Defender over the years. Bruce said his looking to sort the Richards situation out. Either way next season will be a lot of in an outs and if Bruce doesn't go up people will be asking questions. Abel Hernandez is on a free next season we nearly paid 20 million for him last season there's a lot of good players out there its just getting rid of the dead would we need a young attacking team not a old team.


3.) 24 Mar 2018 20:14:30
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.


4.) 25 Mar 2018 00:16:25
Yes Chris I did say he was staying but doesn't mean I like the idea of having a 38 year old at cbk in the prem and if he stayed in the championship it hurts us financial so at the end of the season I would thank him for a great season the get rid for a younger player whos not on as much wages. 1 great point you did Make was we have a great owner now who wouldn't make the same mistakes a lerner Micah Richards has stole a living off us not just for injurys but when he does play he plays so bad we don't pick him again. 1 Thing i want to touch on is how we are playing 3 games in a week down to sky tv really unfair and hand our rivals a advantage. Sky have ruined football. Keep the faith tho Chris hopefully we share a pint at wembley UTV.


5.) 25 Mar 2018 11:06:17
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.


6.) 25 Mar 2018 12:51:51
Interesting posts walkies, chris. For sure the richards debarkle should get sorted out. He has had enough of the clubs cash and just takes the piss. As you say chris can see six or seven that will be gone. as for bruce, think he has been great for the club and should keep his job either way.


7.) 27 Mar 2018 04:35:12
My sources are already getting ready for the summer Chris lol. I'm going to say something that will prove unpopular now but I'd keep Bruce and give him another season if we don't go up but I'd replace him if we do. I don't think he will do any good in the prem and his record backs that up. Same as Warnock at Cardiff. Great at this level not so great in prem. I think we should go for a Sean dyche or Eddie howe if we go up. Our club are bigger than either of there current clubs and I'm sure Tony and Keith could sell the dream and vision to them.


8.) 27 Mar 2018 14:38:57
I think if all them players leave next season and we are still in championship we will not be spending big as some think,
We have to get up this season that's a fact,
It will be even harder next season,
Ftp will not harm us in premiership but it will cripple us in the champs league,


9.) 27 Mar 2018 16:35:38
Got to ask king80, Said all of what you have said a few days ago without a peep from you or anyone else for that matter.
I am wondering why you think its you and your sources that have generated this thinking.
I think most would go along those lines anyway if the truth be known.


10.) 29 Mar 2018 16:09:32
Sorry Dave I'd not seen your post on this matter. Great minds think alike then I'd say .


11.) 29 Mar 2018 18:23:48
Like it Kingy, well said.


 

 

20 Mar 2018 20:42:38
Right everybody the meeting that was at the holte suite today few things to let you know about. 1st get your season tickets before the early bird finishes otherwise season ticket prices are going to go up even if we're still in the championship due to FFP its a way of generating money. If we get promoted John Terry will definitely be a villa player but if we stay in the championship FFP could mean we could part company. Also I was asked to ask about flags and other things during the playoffs and Wembley if we get there and I was told with in reason the club will help as best at it can but there will be no clappers as joked about. Also Kodjia played 45 min behind closed door game tonight he won't be rushed back but could play some part towards the end of the season. Also EFL have come out with a rule that teams have to play a strong team so if we do make the playoffs there's no more playing the kids.

This bad run of form has come out of no where i can't quite believe the crap we are losing to. Steve Bruce should stop playing long ball that doesn't work and is awful to watch last 2 games there cbks have been 6.4 and we have a striker 6 foot so who do they thinks going to win the headers or flicks? We need to work hard and stick together Bruce and the squad have been on good form before it can happen again. UTV.

18 Mar 2018 16:35:50
As usual I was at the game yesterday and I can't figure out why we was so poor does anybody have any idea why we are playing so poor? Last week we was amazing so it can't be Bruce because he wouldn't of changed things in a week so is it the players bottling it?

walk.the.walk

1.) 18 Mar 2018 22:14:01
Its really very simple, we are not as good as we think we are.
Yes we play well at times but If we can`t win playing a certain way, we often lose.
We rarely see the team play with any variation.


2.) 19 Mar 2018 11:47:14
So Villa Dave would you say Bruce is at fault for lack of tactical variation?


3.) 19 Mar 2018 16:55:45
WTW.
Yes it has to be Bruce, and the coaching staff as well for any plans and systems, the players are also guilty of not being able to execute the managers ideas.
We are ok and still in a very good position, but don`t let us be fooled, we are way off the best side.
Man for man we have a varied and experienced side that can perform very well on occasions, unfortunately we lack consistency, it proved against QPR and Bolton that we are also very short on creativity.


4.) 19 Mar 2018 17:47:16
So if we don't go up would keep Steve Bruce?


5.) 19 Mar 2018 18:36:09
If we go up, I personally would have to give him a chance, after all he would be deserving of his chance, but I would seriously fear for our chances with what we have.
But if we are struggling in the bottom six-seven come January I would seriously think about moving him on.
I personally don’t think he is savvy enough to be honest, he must have a plan B, and at the moment he does not have one, that’s why I think in the championship he has found his level.


6.) 19 Mar 2018 19:00:57
Sorry WTW, I misread your post.
If we fail to get promotion, I would be looking for another manager yes.
This time my choice would not be on a whim, it would be thought about with a 5 year plan put in place.

As anybody thought what Ramadan effect can have on players playing for Villa at wembley at work muslims are tired no food no drink how is adoma elmerhamdy an prob a few others going to cope?

{Ed007's Note - I'm no expert on Ramadan etc but there's special rules for Muslim professional sportspeople nowadays so that they are not affected.}

What would be everybodys team for the Playoff Final heard neil taylor an elmo are nearly fit would anybody start Kodjia upfront?

walk.the.walk

1.) 20 May 2018 23:20:52
Think the big decisions are Jedinak or Whelan, and Elmo or Bree, the rest pick themselves. I’d go Jedinak and Bree, Elmo as much as he is a grafter he is awful sometimes, i'd be more confident with Bree up against their wingers. Jedinak gives us a presence, he’s experienced been there and done it and he’s not bad on the ball either so keeps us ticking, gives us another option from the set pieces aswell.


2.) 20 May 2018 23:35:53
Walkies, how can you even consider Taylor? If Elmo not fit, I’d be happy with Hutton and Bree again . Weve got to start with Grabbon, always got Kodj second half .


3.) 21 May 2018 07:56:52
Taylor should be no where near the starting line up.
Hutton is a no-brainer and either bree or almo on other side,
Jedi would start for me due to Fulham not being the biggest side in championship
Set pieces will be our best chance of scoring in my opinion.
Kodila should stay on bench,
The rest of team picks itself really,

This time next week we will be in the Premier League.

And pray tell, how do you work that out.


2.) 19 May 2018 20:16:41
Best change my flights then😅.


3.) 19 May 2018 20:20:13
I wish people would stop shouting and spouting off about what we are going to do.
More often than not it ends up being the kiss of death.
Let`s wait and see what happens next week, there are still two teams in it, Fulham have to be respected, don’t disrespect them before a ball has been kicked.
If we win yes we can all shout and brag as much as we like and nobody can say jack.


4.) 19 May 2018 21:34:03
How is it hard to work out the games saturday 26th May at 17.00 so this time next week we will be in the Premier League VillaMajorca when do you think the game is then?


5.) 20 May 2018 09:44:38
Steady on lads there are 2 teams in this final and you have to give Fulham the respect they deserve,
Yes I'm hoping for that win but who turns up on the day is the important thing to remember,
I saw on 1 other villa blog that out of our expected first team line-up all but 2 players have played at Wembley before,
Fulham on the other hand have only 2 players with Wembley experience!
So we have the experience but they have the younger squad.
We will just have to hope experience prevails,
My heart will not stand for extra time or God forbid penalties!

19 May 2018 12:55:12
If we do go up would anybody buy Benteke back?

walk.the.walk

1.) 19 May 2018 15:27:19
100%, would get a good deal aswell, confidence player and in a Villa shirt he knows he’s the man and he’d be back to his best, you don’t lose ability overnight. However you can lose form under poor miss management. I can see why some would be dubious however people who are completely dismissive seem to not understand the player he is, ie plays off confidence.


2.) 19 May 2018 15:53:43
I agree fans would love that deal so would the player and I think his a Steve Bruce sort of player. If we go up it will be a very exciting summer. I have my prayer mat out. Milner would be nice aswel.


3.) 19 May 2018 16:15:00
Nope, I tried to explain this last month, do people read what others are posting.
He is vastly overrated, sulks and goes missing, and is not an out and out goal scorer, he was ok first time around but not now, leave well alone.
I Think Austin would be a far better investment, has more in his locker.


4.) 19 May 2018 16:31:16
Was he vastly overrated sulking and missing when he was top 5 striker in the prem 3 years running with us Dave? What will we do for the 6 months a season Austin is injured? People do read what others post but just because you explained your point of view last month doesn’t mean that’s final. The way I see it is he never let us down, he is clearly a confidence player and would be available to a good price in today’s market, but that’s just my view, doesn’t mean it’s final, people can still debate it. In terms of strikers realistic and available that are proven and going to make a difference to the squad and help us stay up (if we get there) I can’t see how his not one of the top 3 options, done it before, proven, suits the style of play, doesn’t have a huge injury record and I don’t imagine he will be too pricey. Other options could be say Origi on loan, Abraham or someone really left field like immobile who has had a brilliant season.


5.) 19 May 2018 17:14:31
That's fine chris, you make some good points which we disagree on, I am not trying to change your mind, just as you will not change mine.
I don't feel he is the type of player we need, there is nothing to say he would perform for us the way he did, it has a habit of backfiring when a player returns to a former club, and they often fail to rekindle the flames of the past.
We will only find out if it happens.


6.) 19 May 2018 17:52:23
Sorry Dave, I’ve read what you put a few times but first time it read as though “I told you the score with benteke weeks ago and that’s final”😂😂 I do rate Austin, and he’d fit well, just his injuries put me off. Papers are saying we’re after a big money striker from Porto, never heard of him tho so god knows what his like.


7.) 19 May 2018 18:24:06
That's fine chris, not a problem mate.
Funny really because Marega is similar to Benteke, big and strong two good feet, and quick.
He has improved at Porto for sure, did not pull up any trees before he went to Porto.
He has played in France but would he adapt to the English game, who knows, would probably command a fee of about 8 mil plus.
Seen him play 3/ 4 times.


8.) 19 May 2018 20:39:46
See that’s where papers get carried away, their quoting 35 million, unbelievable. Going to be a good summer on here if we win next weekend!


 

 

18 May 2018 08:38:17
Watched the blues game v Fulham and all they done was sat deep and narrow an closed them down fulham had no plan be if we do this an hit them on the break we will win. Hope Bruce watches the same video I did. can't wait now We are nearly back where we belong. UTV.

1.) 18 May 2018 12:32:26
I hope he doesn't god help us if he watches the same video as you didn't know you was a game anyalist also KFA I mean WTW?


2.) 18 May 2018 12:52:19
I agree WTW, get in their face, close them down and commit people to the counter don’t just leave Grabban up top on his own, get bodies around him quickly. Last two home games against them we pressed them high and didn’t let them play out from the back and in both cases it led to Villa wins, I think that would be too risky on a big Wembley pitch. So sitting back, pressuring and picking them off sounds the best bet.
