Dean Smith = all the gear, no idea-and remember this boys and girls, if we get relegated then we'll be scrutinised big time on our finances, the efl have long memories and rules that suit them-not us.

Theres a break in ffp next season but does that include championship clubs?

Agree0 Disagree0

It has to be all clubs. No club can be self sustainable for a whole season if for a large chunk of that season they either can't have fans or are only permitted up to around 25% capacity.

They may still run the rule over ffp but using a 3 year period not including seasons affected by the virus. That means at least for next season and probably one after there would be no reviews as they've already been done.

21 Jun 2020 12:10:36
So when we go down if we want we can spend 200 million to get back up?

21 Jun 2020 13:25:55
Spending 200 million guarantees nothing.
Need a blueprint to restructure the whole club.
A system. Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern, Liverpool, Wolves. Its all about getting the infrastructure right and the rest follows. Everyone knows their job and no one is indespensable.

21 Jun 2020 16:47:18
I would hazard a guess that they may investigate that clubs don't double or triple their wage expenditure during that period just because they aren't reviewed against their losses to stop people taking the micky.
Just wouldn't penalize them for losses outside of their control as difficult to prove what their ticket income would have been. Also a risk of sponsorships reducing dramatically without people in stadiums.

23 Jun 2020 08:00:38
I absolutely agree that we need a blue print to follow as at the moment I am not sure everyone is singing from the same hymn sheet, the CEO talks about us developing a class youth infrastructure and we do have some more than useful kids and yet they struggle to even get on the bench despite our struggles. If we do get relegated then I think we will lose some of our more talented players Grealish McGinn Mings etc we can also get rid of some who aren’t good enough like El ghazi Trezuget Engels Elmo and a few others and bring some of the youngsters in like Ramsey O hare (if we can keep him) and augment with a few quality players currently plying there trade in the Championship like Lolley and Worrall from Forest Karlem Grant at Huddersfield and we will be ok.
However I know I keep banging on about this but changing. managers every year or two means we will achieve nothing our blue print should have key milestones against which the manager and board can be assessed against and imo the plan needs to be long term ie at least 5 years long. Whilst premiership status is important it is not the be all and end all the club needs to be on a sound footing not least financially to ensure our future long term as given where football is currently I do fear for some clubs and I don’t want us to be one of them.

Having got that off my chest I hope everyone is well and let’s keep hoping for a miracle UTV.

23 Jun 2020 14:45:35
I do agree with everything you say John, and I think a lot of people do to be honest.
The bit about changing managers in theory is ideal I agree, but the way things have gone, I am a bit reluctant to stick with Deano, because of his steadfast ways an lack of enterprise.
I like the man a lot, but nothing changes, it appears he might be a yes man or is frightened of any backlash
Either way, for that reason youth will struggle to break through under Him.
One thing is for sure John, we must get rid of Terry ASAP.

23 Jun 2020 16:28:37
Dave you might be right on the yes man front but I am a great conspiracy theorist and I wonder whether the plan has all along been to get Deano to school Terry and at an appropriate time replace him with Terry I hope to god that’s not the case but I fear as soon as we are relegated that’s what will happen.

With regards to the kids he always seemed prepared to do it at Walsall and Brentford Rico Henry springs to mind but I guess it’s a little different when you have no money and therefore little option versus having plenty of options at a bigger club the only manager in recent times who seemed to be prepared to play a youngster or two Jack being the classic example was Tim Sherwood.

23 Jun 2020 18:10:43
A couple of good points there John, and can`t argue mate.
I would be very concerned if Terry got the managers job, that for me would be another step back, with a sprinkle of wishful thinking.

23 Jun 2020 18:45:48
If we do go down and Deano is replaced the interesting thing will be who by because I can’t think of too many stand out candidates.

23 Jun 2020 19:16:42
How about going German on a 3/ 5 year plan.
I give you Julian Nagelsmann, RB Leipzigs Manager.

{Ed002's Note - Why on earth would he be interested in joining AV.}

23 Jun 2020 19:48:21
I don`t know Ed, maybe he has aspirations of joining a very big club.
just a suggestion, we need to do something, a young manager like him might be what everyone needs, us and the manager.

{Ed002's Note - Zero chance of him joining Aston Villa from a Champions League side.}

23 Jun 2020 20:14:49
Well the thing is, we will probable not approach him, so we will never know will we.
To be honest I would be surprised if Leipzig progress far in the tournament anyway, but good luck to them.
So on that note, I think if Villa did offer him the post, I have no doubt he would sit down and make some serious considerations, as to what is possible at such an illustrious football club as ours.

{Ed002's Note - They will be in it regularly.}

23 Jun 2020 20:28:10
Ok, time will tell.

23 Jun 2020 21:42:46
For me I think we would have to set our sights a bit lower in the managerial stakes so for me my first choice would be Bilic international experience managed in premiership and the championship with better than average results whether he would come to us not sure but if you don’t ask you won't know. Failing that I think I would take a punt on Steven Gerrard although I never was his biggest fan he seems to be doing a decent job at Rangers.

23 Jun 2020 22:09:30
I think Gerrard is cutting his teeth ready for Liverpool, Clopp is going in two years I think.

19 Jun 2020 18:33:32
My team for against Chelsea formation 4 3 1 2 Gk Nyland rbk elmo lbk targett cbks mings konsa. Central midfield 3 of mgcinn luis nycamba attacking mid grelish 2 strikers davis an samata. Grelish would play a free role and in my view that's our best formation. I belive we have a good squad just wrong formation.

Our wingers elgazi an trez are ok but grelish is never a winger so playing without wingers will help because the full backs can bomb forward. Chelsea are a great side so no matter what irs gona be tough but we can't make mistakes again the big teams. So what do you think boys.

17 Jun 2020 21:10:47
I'm sure most are watching the man City arsenal game, I just heard David Luiz is out of contract, he would be perfect for our defense, guaranteed to gift defensive error goals, silly me we have enough already that can do that.

{Ed002's Note - Sorry, that won’t be happening.}

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jun 2020 11:51:43
Irony mate, not a suggestion.

17 Jun 2020 11:44:33
Curtin is going to drop soon on this mini league of survival for us, for Mcginn has to start he brings our midfield from 2 stars to 4 stars Jack will have an extra spring in his step because Mcginn is back there both on the same wave length, think back to last season when Jack came back it was like different team they rallied and pushed on, I'm hopeing Mcginn has the same influence, these last 10 games are big because if we go down it's a full rebuild maybe 3-4 seasons to get back up, IF we stay up I think we will finish in top 10 next season on go on from there with the wealth of our owners we can really push on, It's much a fine line, DO OUR DIE come on boys.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Jun 2020 21:30:56
Ed, do you have any Idea if O`Hare, or Jacob Ramsey can play for Villa, during the run in.
I ask because, their loan club season is now over?

{Ed002's Note - No Dave, the season must be completed with the players registered for the second half of the season. There was also due to be a vote to see if players who were excluded because of injury at the start of the season could replace those injured now or those opting not to play, but for some reason that did not happen. There are still a couple of clubs looking to change this.}

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Jun 2020 12:34:50
Thanks for that Ed, not ideal but rules are rules.

13 Jun 2020 08:33:00
Now that Doncaster and Coventry’s seasons are over does anybody know if Jacob Ramsey and Callum O’hare will be eligible to play in Villa’s remaining 10 games? I heard a Rumour that the registration rule could be relaxed but I have read conflicting reports.

It would certainly be useful given that 5 subs are allowed and you never know it could make a significant difference if they were eligible to play, and in Callum’s case, it might just be enough to convince him to put pen to paper if he gets an opportunity and does well.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Jun 2020 10:28:47
The 3 club rule will be for next season with the transfer windows due to run until October.
The current registration debate was regarding injured players being left out I believe.

11 Jun 2020 20:54:08
Anyone know the 2 Leicester friendly results, King power, and Villa Park.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Jun 2020 09:32:19
3-0 to Villa at King Power.

12 Jun 2020 11:50:57
Thanks very much TT, stay safe mate.

12 Jun 2020 13:21:24
1.0 leicester at vp. And 4.1 villa at leicester. Why is a wolves fan always chatting on a villa site.

12 Jun 2020 16:31:59
Thanks very much walkies, not sure which one of you is correct, but at least I know, we won one, lost one.
Keep safe walkies.

06 Jun 2020 19:38:53
Apparently, the training sessions are hotting up now at Bodymoor Heath, and youngsters Mungo Bridge, Tyreik Wright and Louie Barry were all fully involved with the first team squad, which is very encouraging news.
With 9 on the bench and 5 substitutes allowed for the remaining games this could be a sign that the 3 of them are very much in Deano's plans. UTV.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jun 2020 20:13:01
And you still couldn’t beat the unmentionables.

06 Jun 2020 20:42:16
I hope so mate, I am getting a bit excited to be honest.
I would love a youngster to come on and do a Rooney, or a Milner.

06 Jun 2020 21:41:29
Unmentionables? was it against Wolves, I could have sworn it was against West Brom . 😁.

06 Jun 2020 12:11:10
Just reading that transfer fees are likely to plummet following the virus an example that was cited was Raul Jimenez before the virus he was being talked about as a £40 to £50 million pound player now Wolves will accept £18 million for him allegedly. If this is true I wonder what the impact would be on the transfer fees for the likes of Jack, McGinn and Mings?

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jun 2020 16:52:28
Hi John.
If that`s the case mate, it can only be a good thing for football in general, looking at it from a neutral point.
Obviously like buying a house, you sell cheap so theoretically you can buy cheap.
Looking at it from our perspective, and assuming Jack does want out,
I would hold fire and make it clear, that his price was 95 million, and 80 million is the new reduced price, take it or leave it.
Not as simple as that I know, but do you get where I am coming from.

06 Jun 2020 19:27:20
Jack is a player in demand from several clubs, so that should help keep the price up. The more parties that are interested the better. If we stay up I would think we would be in a better bargain position and of course you never know Jack might want to stay anyway.

06 Jun 2020 20:37:46
I just get the feeling he is already unsettled, especially with all the media talk, idle journalism.

08 Jun 2020 22:10:48
The £18m Jimenez fee involves a player swap (1 of Rugani/ Rabiot/ Higuain) who are valued at £25m each. So Juve have offered one of them players plus £18m on top.
