Sky in Germany claim a deal for rashica is very close. Negotiations at very advanced stage.


1.) 04 Oct 2020 16:57:27
If true, that will finish the window off perfectly 😁😁

Now let’s go and beat Liverpool UTV.

2.) 04 Oct 2020 18:20:43
If Villa buy him and he will play the LW. Grealish will play the LM. Luiz and McGuinn takes the other places in midfield. Isn’t Barkley then a expensive man on the bench?

3.) 04 Oct 2020 18:59:31
If we signed Rashica I think we would play 3 in midfield. Luiz, Mcginn and Barkley. Grealish wide, Rashica would play same as Grealish but opposite flank. Watkins up front. I think Traore and Trezeguet would be on the bench or not depending on performances.
Anyway we're getting ahead of ourselves. Not signed him (or Benrahma) yet.



03 Oct 2020 10:23:06
Jota has been released. Not surprised never really got going in the Premiership. Hope we do get some business done but feel we won't see any more incomings.


1.) 03 Oct 2020 10:54:26
Smells like a bit of poor planning to me, he came off the bench on Thursday night fgs!

2.) 03 Oct 2020 11:48:56
Mind you, Barkley was on the bench for Chelski the night before he was announced as a Villa player 😀.

3.) 03 Oct 2020 12:15:15
Jota’s departure makes sense for both parties. I wish the player well.

I wonder if Nyland and, just possibly, Lansbury are considering similar arrangements.

Smith has said he wants two players for every position (GK and ST aside), so Lansbury‘s loss would create a hole to fill. That could get covered by Ramsey (J) or an additional new face. At the moment, I would still err towards the ex-Forest player staying, but the recent Twitter attacks might have coloured his judgement otherwise.

Smith’s recent interview hinted some players (plural) might now prefer to move on following the recent recruitment drive. Severance by mutual agreement could appeal to some, where they have little prospect of playing and would not command much of a fee. If the player feels the time is right, he may see a benefit from negotiating elsewhere as a free agent.

Kalinic is the tricky one because his deal runs until 2023.

4.) 03 Oct 2020 12:37:09
Smith said any outgoing players maybe the key to anymore incoming. We can't stockpile players, especially ones who aren't going to play in Prem.
Maybe, just maybe we will see one more signing before the deadline.
Benrahma would/ could be that final piece.
Watching him Thursday I must say he was impressive and certainly put himself in the shop window.
Fingers crossed.

5.) 05 Oct 2020 18:31:22
VillaMole (Twiiter) has suggested Smith is keen to move on El Ghazi, Guilbert and Lansbury by 23:00 if possible. The latter may be paid off in a similar manner to Jota if he remains after closure of the EFL window.



21 Sep 2020 16:51:38
Milot rashica has posted a pic of him and marvellous from their vitesse days, and he mention marvellous in the post. Is this a sign he is close?


1.) 21 Sep 2020 18:54:50
That was done weeks ago Fezz.

2.) 21 Sep 2020 22:13:34
No this is a new picture.

3.) 21 Sep 2020 22:29:09
Weeks ago? He posted it yesterday. I for 1 think he’s 99% certain to sign, there would b more talk about josh king if he wasn’t imo. a covering CB and a LB in before end of window if I was to bet on it.

4.) 22 Sep 2020 09:16:00
I agree Whackattack. It’s looking likely again; several reports coming out of Kosovo that it’s a done deal. For a while, the issue appeared to be the fee. and seemingly that’s now agreed. Hopeful!

I hope we are also getting a promising LB to push, if not replace, Targett. If Samatta and Engels are moving on, both need replacing. And we still need a no. 8. A lot more to come I feel.

5.) 22 Sep 2020 14:15:42
Awfully sorry W, A, I was unaware another picture had been released.
If you remember a picture of Nakamba and Rashika was shown weeks ago, I thought it was the same one, silly me, hence my post.

6.) 24 Sep 2020 21:41:38
Why has Badger Boi got such a bone on for Rashica? He’s also got one for Kingvilla8 😂😂😂.

7.) 25 Sep 2020 19:23:54
I have come to the conclusion that we should kick the Rashica deal into touch and opt for Buendia. Yes, I know they favour different flanks, but I would use the Norwich man more to feed Watkins, Traore and co. through the middle.

Time is running tight, although I know we have longer with EFL players, but I think it is time to forget the Kosovan option.



17 Aug 2020 10:25:56
Villa linked to ramsdale of Bournemouth. Good goalkeeper, definate improvement on what we already have.


1.) 17 Aug 2020 11:26:27
Is a goalkeeper really a priority given we have limited funds and have problems out wide and up front? Personally I don’t think so not at £18.5 million anyway. If we are targeting a keeper I would rather go for Ben Foster much cheaper and a better keeper to boot.

2.) 17 Aug 2020 12:23:25
It does seem a lot John, but for me a quality keeper is so important, it permeates confidence throughout the whole side. There is no doubting Ramsdale’s ability and he comes across as a very confident young lad. Heaton is 34 and is perhaps approaching the twilight of his career. I like Foster I must admit, but he is getting on a bit too. My feeling on Nyland and Steer is that neither are going to be quite what’s required if we are going to push on. On reflection I think we have to think long term and I think Ramsdale would fit the bill. The money we could get for Nyland, Steer and Kalinic wouldn’t cover the fee for Ramsdale but it could effectively reduce it considerably.

3.) 17 Aug 2020 12:38:20
Mark I don’t doubt his ability my concern is taking that sum out of our original budget of £100 million doesn’t leave a lot for 2 widemen and a quality centre forward not to mention a full back and centre back which also appear to be on the agenda I hope we are not shopping at Aldi again!

4.) 17 Aug 2020 13:17:04
John, It will ultimately come down to what the management/ owners consider to be the priorities for the club. I don’t think it will really make much difference what the likes of us consider to be the priorities. It would be nice to think that supporters views are valued and considered, but supporters views are always so variable, so I would doubt they make much difference.
It’s fun to discuss / debate all the same and I’m glad we don’t all think the same or this site would get extremely boring mate.

5.) 17 Aug 2020 13:25:53
i would go for ben foster, look to strength were we need, and we all know were that is, even if we have different opinions.

6.) 17 Aug 2020 13:57:39
Mark you are absolutely right it will come down to what the management team deem our priorities to be but everything coming out from Villa suggests we need 2 widemen and a striker. For me after spending on 2 quality widemen I wouldn’t want to sign Ramsdale if that meant we had to sign someone like Obafemi to lead the line i don’t think my heart could stand it😁. I would much rather us sign someone like Ihenacho/ Abraham/ Origi and make do with a cheaper keeper option or even make do with Nyland until Heaton is fully fit but as you say the Villa hierarchy might see it differently.

7.) 17 Aug 2020 14:02:54
I get the impression it’s nearly a done deal that he’s going to Sheffield United and that we don’t really have much chance of hijacking the deal.
If however 100 million is the amount available for players, (big if ) this is an example of what could be achieved bearing in mind the recent update on the Benrahma price; GK. Ramsdale 18.5m.
RB. Cash. 10m.
LB. Henry. 10m.
RW. Buendia 20m.
LW. Benrahma 15m.
S. Watkins 25m.
This is just an example, but would people consider this to be a good transfer window.

8.) 17 Aug 2020 16:32:45
pretty bad, Cash.
LB. Henry.
RW. Buendia
LW. Benrahma .
S. Watkins only Buendia with half a season of prem, jack would leave.

9.) 17 Aug 2020 16:34:18
Mark, I can’t see us getting either Cash or Benrahama for £10 or £15 million respectively we are likely to be involved in an auction and I think Cash more likely £15 million and Benrahama £25 million. For me I would try to sign Ihenacho for £25 million Benrahma for £25 million and Sarr for £30million I would use the remaining £20 million to try to sign Stones but I think he is more likely to go to a bigger club than us. I would also try to get Ryan Sessegnon on loan from Spurs with an option to buy for me personally that would represent a good window. All the above is predicated on Jack staying.

10.) 17 Aug 2020 17:02:28
John, I like your preferences but it always comes down to price, and which club the players prefer.
Apparently Liverpool and Wolves are interested in Sarr and Watford want 40 million. Couldn’t honestly see him choosing us ahead of Liverpool or Wolves.
I’m not sure Villa would be top of Stones’ list either.
It’s one thing meeting the asking prices, it’s another persuading the players and their agents that Villa is the best option for them.

Thor has been given a free transfer.

Nyland has now gone contract terminated.




30 Sep 2020 10:39:55
Barkley on loan for the season. Great signing. Centre back next please.




15 Sep 2020 11:36:31
5 year new contract for Jack. Great news.




05 Aug 2020 10:45:32
So reports suggest we have 100mil to spend, but what about Fraser and Hendrick both free transfers and would add to the squad, Fraser especially is better for me than el garzi and plenty of prem experience.


1.) 05 Aug 2020 13:46:49
Frasier is definitely a good player but a bad egg he left bournmouth in the lurch by refusing to play when they needed him. Eddie howie one of the nice guys in football aswel frasier attuide is a disgrace.

We still have till the 16th to sign players from English sides. So no rush for benrahma, rashica for me is a better player. But looking very unlikely to see him in the claret and blue of villa.

Um pretty sure we didn't as we stayed up. Only count for the 1st season I would believe.

Have seen this lad play a fair bit as I live near exeter, very good talent always going to play premier league one day, hopefully he does for us. And seeing he is keen on joining deano again is good news. He is quick can take a player on and finish. Just what we need.
