There is a rumour circulating that we are still interested in Marc Roca from Espanyol, though I struggle to see how we accommodate another central midfielder, especially now we've signed Barkley 🤔.


1.) 02 Oct 2020 16:47:25
Yeah I have seen this more than once MD, I think the only thing behind it, might have something to do with the interest being shown in Nakamba.
If that happens we will need cover, so maybe we are in fact thinking of moving Marvelous out.

2.) 02 Oct 2020 17:20:36
Would you let Nakamba go Dave? I like him, he’s always give it his all and I think he could develop into a realy good player, not sure I’d let him go! There’s definitely others I’d like to see go before him mate.

3.) 02 Oct 2020 18:13:58
I have seen a video on-line today where Smith refutes this link.

4.) 02 Oct 2020 18:27:15
81 Nakamba is very good at breaking play up and has energy I'll give him that and can obviously do a job winning the ball but, to me anyway, he's so predominantly left footed that he has to turn full circle to get to release the ball if it's on his weaker side. It happens so slowly its almost like watching an oil tanker turn and is a weakness that can be exploited, hence why he loses the ball as much as he wins it.

5.) 02 Oct 2020 18:30:13
I like him as well 81, that`s a tough one mate.
I totally agree with your take on it.

6.) 02 Oct 2020 19:05:52
I get your point Moose, I spend hours with my Son and Son in law talking about left or right footed players.
That affects a lot of players, when I played we were trained on both feet, and the best team I ever played for, every player including the keeper could use both feet.
Even Jack is week on his left foot, Traore his right, Luiz his left, the list goes on and on.

7.) 02 Oct 2020 19:26:11
I think for now he's adequate cover and maybe Shakespeare can coach him to improve Dave, but hopefully, as we get better and better a higher quality of DM will be brought in or develop in the youth ranks. However our centre half, left back and striker cover is thin to say the least and should be a priority if we have the funds. Hoping that adding Barkley to Luiz and McGinn in the middle of the park may give Targett some better cover, oh and he stops ball watching instead of keeping an eye on his man.



26 Sep 2020 11:33:38
El Ghazi Off to Olympiakos say some reports. Shame imo, but he'll be behind Trezeguet in the pecking order and, at 25, will want regular first-team games.


1.) 26 Sep 2020 19:28:08
Nottingham Forest have also been mentioned.

I am not convinced he is consistent enough for the Premier League, but we really need a replacement before letting him go.

Smith has suggested possibly one more in and two out. I would have thought one of the leavers would be a goalie, but El Ghazi could be the other.

At the end of the day, the selection of departures is goinfg to be driven by the buyer interest. That could well mean we might well not move on our preferred first choices. One or two we might rather to go now could well end up running the final year of their contracts down.

2.) 26 Sep 2020 21:11:19
I will always thank him for the goal he got to get us up villa legend just for that!

3.) 26 Sep 2020 21:12:49
Given space and time el ghazi has a cutting edge. Unfortunately you don't get that in the prem.

4.) 27 Sep 2020 12:34:30
I'm sure given enough time and space, even I can put a few decent balls in the box even at my age. Mind you ref might blow for half time whilst I'm steadying myself 😂😂😂.

5.) 27 Sep 2020 13:31:41
Agree walkies. Our fans do forget too easily sometimes. We wouldn't be where we are if not for him.
Obviously have to replace once you have better quality but don't be a douche about it.

El ghazi should be applauded out to a new challenge. Trez can be a headless chicken sometimes but his goals kept us up so he should get the same when the time comes.



23 Sep 2020 10:34:21
Samatta off on loan to Fenerbahce by the sounds of it. Risky imo given that Wesley won't be fit until January. Perhaps this heralds the arrival of another striker? 🤞.


1.) 23 Sep 2020 16:47:49
Not according to his father.



16 Sep 2020 12:50:31
Martinez deal done. Next please .




05 Jun 2020 14:19:51
Congrats to the Women's team on getting promoted to the WSL and coming up from the Championship just a year after the boys. Just a shame the men's team can't swap positions with Liverpool as the ladies are about to do!

With my rational head on, unless we can go away to Man City and win comfortably, we're still a work in progress- which we are. Unfair result but we were beaten by the Ref.




20 Jan 2021 19:40:27
Mings again thinks he's Beckenbauer. Entirely his fault spoiling a superb performance.


1.) 20 Jan 2021 19:51:39
Hes the David James of cb mate.

2.) 20 Jan 2021 19:54:16
What did you want him to do break his leg?

3.) 20 Jan 2021 20:00:42
Nah - he’s not Souness.

4.) 20 Jan 2021 20:04:13
Head the ball would of been good.



08 Jan 2021 21:11:16
So why are the kids not going in with some season-ending tackles on the Scousers main men? It would do the first team a few favours without any of them being punished.


{Ed047's Note - words fail me you absolute melt! 🤦‍♂️

1.) 08 Jan 2021 21:20:08
Jesus Christ🙈.

2.) 08 Jan 2021 21:32:28
Are you for real, pathetic remark.

3.) 08 Jan 2021 21:40:07
Because we ain’t blue noses we are 1 of the cleanest teams in the league.

4.) 08 Jan 2021 22:05:24
Oh my God, have you had a bad day or something, crikey Menace, 😟👎.

5.) 09 Jan 2021 01:15:17
As ever, irony escapes most of you.

{Ed001's Note - that's not irony. It is just a stupid comment.}

6.) 09 Jan 2021 02:03:59
you should be ashamed of yourself don't you dare bring that sort of behaviour to our club!



08 Jan 2021 20:48:01
So how come the supposedly maturer first team have all got CV whereas the young lads you'd expect to be party animals don't and can play tonight?


1.) 08 Jan 2021 21:20:44
Your having a bit of nightmare tonight aren’t you. Surely you don’t need it explaining to you.

2.) 08 Jan 2021 21:51:14
Pointless chris, ain`t worth the effort mate.



07 Jan 2021 15:05:02
Aston Villa confirm 'significant' C.V. outbreak at the club. Apparently a large number of first-team players and staff are in isolation after returning positive tests on Monday.


1.) 07 Jan 2021 15:17:12
Yeah, not great. Inevitable I'm afraid. Hopefully nobody's health is badly affected including their family members. Speedy recovery 🙏.

2.) 07 Jan 2021 15:19:01
Most of us have had a liberties restricted and have carried out our part in complying with restrictions to our every day freedoms. The privileged "elite sportsman" have been allowed to carry on and it seems have put two fingers up to us, disgraceful behaviour.

3.) 07 Jan 2021 16:06:52
With many clubs now reporting CV outbreaks I suspect football will soon come grinding to a halt.

4.) 07 Jan 2021 16:17:26
I think what this proves is that despite all the bio secure bubbles, monitoring and regular testing that anyone can catch it and makes you more angry seeing idiots going out without masks in public places, supermarkets etc and basically not giving a f##k about anyone else.

5.) 07 Jan 2021 16:25:20
I think you're rolling all professional footballers up into one there mate which doesn't seem fair. As ever, its the minority that give the majority a bad name.
Most are just getting on with their day job and under exactly the same restrictions as the rest of us in terms of only leaving the house for work, food, medicine etc. They still don't get to see friends, family etc, the same as us. Unfortunately the decent majority don't make the headlines like the party boys do.

6.) 07 Jan 2021 16:58:25
No evidence that a breach of rules has caused this outbreak, strange to assume it was🤔.

7.) 07 Jan 2021 18:54:03
Its only one stupid pr. k that can spread it throughout the club.
Because they get paid more than I could earn in my lifetime they think they are immune and don't have to behave.

Could this effect tomorrows game?

Away from VP I am delighted that I will get my jab on Saturday.
So one more day of shutting myself away and then I can go outside for fresh air.
Might keep my wife happy me being out of the house.
We have obeyed the words and not wandered or driven off away from the area.
Hope you can all be jabbed soon, if you want to be jabbed.
If you don't then that's your choice!

8.) 07 Jan 2021 19:28:19
So you have not been out at all then Oldvillan?

9.) 07 Jan 2021 19:22:14
VAR have awarded a pen in the next game as a result.

Hopefully all pull through.
Doesn't matter how old you are, colour of your skin or what you do for a living this virus is a bitch.

10.) 07 Jan 2021 19:23:36
I don’t think this should come as any great surprise given the rapid transition of the new variant of the virus and the way it continues to spread not only at Villa then I think it’s only a matter of time before football gets shut down again with all the associated issues that presents.

I believe the premier league has to be concluded by the 23rd of May to enable the Euros to take place any lengthy lockdown and I think another postponement will be on the cards.

11.) 07 Jan 2021 20:31:41
Old villain enjoy the freedom it will bring. A good couple of months for me yet.

12.) 07 Jan 2021 20:37:31
Hi Dave,
I have followed the strict direction of only essential journeys to be made.
Since November 2nd I have seen the Dr and the physio which are alongside the place that visitors flock, The Harbour.
Slight detour to see our town, staying in the car, then straight home.
My wife goes shopping and I joined her one night at 8pm.
Thats about it.

13.) 07 Jan 2021 21:13:38
If you had caught it during that shopping trip, would it have been fair to assume you are a stupid pr*ck?

14.) 07 Jan 2021 21:27:19
Got it Oldvillan, I thought you were a prisoner so to speak haha.
Best of luck with your jab mate.

15.) 07 Jan 2021 22:10:24
Players are people, same as everyone here. They are allowed to do the same as we are, a player or member of staff has most likely caught the virus doing such activities and inadvertently passed it on to the rest of the group.

The fact that some on here are immediately looking to fabricate rumours that someone has acted out of line resulting in this outbreak, or in some cases single out individuals, is disgraceful. At a time like this, to talk like that, shameful.

I hope each and everyone of them along with their families, recovers ASAP.

16.) 07 Jan 2021 22:39:16
Chris you are right.
Because my wife has been shopping etc since around March I decided to go with her .
Late shopping only a few people in a big store.
Big coat, cap pulled down, 2 masks and two trolleys. Calculated risk
You can create a lot of space with two trolleys.

17.) 07 Jan 2021 22:42:33
Dave, never looked forward to getting the needle before.
But you guessed, 50+ years with no remission. Vicar said you will serve a full sentence.
Almost as much comfort as being inside at HMP.

18.) 08 Jan 2021 08:02:01
Btw I wasn’t trying to be nasty or anything like that old villain, just pointing out that the chances are it was brought into the group by someone who has picked it up simply doing what they are allowed to and following the rules.

No matter how safe anybody is, there’s always a risk, even with home deliveries, with the virus living on surfaces etc.

I commend you on your vigilance and effort however oldvillain, if everyone had followed suit from the beginning, at least to a certain degree, chances are we wouldn’t be in a lockdown right now.

I’d say that might have some credibility. Suddenly Kevin De Bruyne is Jacks biggest fan. Could be he’s looking to woo him over to City.

Did I miss something, or didn't McGinn score a cracking goal after 48 seconds in the last game, only to have it disallowed by the Stockley Park Muppet Show?

The rumour on Rashika is still kicking around from various sources. I've just been on flightradar24 and was getting quite excited tracking a private jet coming in from Bremen. Sadly it looks to be heading for somewhere in the south-east.

Mind you, Barkley was on the bench for Chelski the night before he was announced as a Villa player 😀.

Apparently he's not - we just signed him 😊.

Looks like we’ve managed to field our strongest 11 despite the C.V. problems. Great to see Barkley back.

Personally, I think it’s a win-win. U23’s get a proper run out and some good exposure and the first team can concentrate on consolidating our PL status without having to play a load of unnecessary extra games, only to be knocked out in the semis.
