Possible cheap option left back cover-Barry Douglas leeds. Liked him when he was at wolves and was gutted when he went to Leeds for about 5 million, think at the time we missed a trick. Met him in the post office in sedgley. Apparently he's available too, surely an upgrade on Taylor ๐Ÿค”.


1.) 04 Oct 2020 10:15:32
Definite upgrade on Taylor, but he starts for Leeds so can't see how heโ€™d be available.

2.) 04 Oct 2020 11:07:04
I donโ€™t think Douglas has been in any of Leeds premiership squads to date.

3.) 04 Oct 2020 11:36:48
Read it somewhere Chris and Dallas started ahead of him yesterday.

4.) 04 Oct 2020 12:00:41
According to the Mail, Watford are in advanced talks to sign Douglas.

5.) 04 Oct 2020 13:09:34
Good shout Moose, Mark we could still intervene and make an offer surely.

6.) 04 Oct 2020 13:23:44
It would certainly be worth asking the question, surely we've got to be a better option than Watford. Apparently he was quite settled in sedgley and was a bit shocked to be sold.

7.) 04 Oct 2020 13:28:06
I hate to say this but Wolves are getting an absolute cracker in Ait Nouri from Angers. On loan for the season with the option to buy. Why couldnโ€™t we have got him on the same terms?
Iโ€™ve been really pleased with our dealings in this window but considering how weak we are in the left back position, I do feel that a great opportunity has been missed here.

8.) 04 Oct 2020 13:44:08
Donโ€™t ask me why, I was thinking of Dallas when it clearly says Douglas๐Ÿ˜‚.

9.) 04 Oct 2020 15:45:48
Speaking of Dallas, Sue Ellen shot JR ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜.

Couldn't resist this: Jack Grealish a driving force both on and off the pitch. Too soon? ๐Ÿค”.


1.) 23 Nov 2020 22:06:40
52 years of driving and he has three more offences than I do.
Mine was speeding, over Hockley flyover.

2.) 24 Nov 2020 15:13:28
Poss got as many points as we have in the prem.
perhaps he thinks that he can give his points to a third party.

If anyone is interested stoke u23 v Villa u23 is being shown live on YouTube tonight KO 7pm.


1.) 23 Nov 2020 21:00:31
After watching the u23 game its shows we have some very good youngsters coming through. This season may be too early to start introducing them but next season, with our out of contract players sure to leave, it would be nice to see a sprinkling of them at least making the bench.

2.) 23 Nov 2020 21:31:41
I watched it Moose, as you say some tasty footballers, amongst the team tonight . Things looking bright, if we can get some of the through .
Onwards&Upwards Villaforever.

Papers and pundits raving about Jack's performance last night but, by his usual standards I thought he was ok without being his normal dangerous self. I thought Mings, who I have mentioned has his mad moments, played better. You could tell though he wasn't playing his usual game, looking up and pinging balls over the top. Several times last night he went to do that, but obviously due to instructions played the safe option, whilst Maguire and Keane did exactly that all night. Just my observations.


1.) 13 Nov 2020 12:06:54
I just hope Jack and Tyrone donโ€™t bring Southgateโ€™s methods of play back to VP Moose, and become boring stereotype players.

2.) 13 Nov 2020 13:11:36
They'll probably just be happy to get back and play some proper football Mark ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.



09 Nov 2020 06:04:55
Just read Arteta's post match interview. Fair play to him praising our performance, an honest appraisal for once and not the usual soundbites you usually get. What a refreshing change ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘.




08 Nov 2020 08:10:40
Does nobody find it strange, that despite the media love in with Leeds, nobody mentions the fact, despite being here for a good 3 years, Bielsa still speaks through an interpreter?


{Ed001's Note - they go on about it constantly on BeIn and he does that deliberately. With the way the English press twist everything wouldn't you?}

1.) 08 Nov 2020 08:33:27
Ed its either ignorance or arrogance not sure which but its quite cringeworthy to watch.

{Ed001's Note - it is just him being careful as there have been loads of lies spread about him in the press in the past. Stuff about him threatening fans with a hand grenade etc. It is little wonder he doesn't want to take a chance on something he says being taken the wrong way as he is not fluent. He is 65, it is not easy learning a new language at that age.}

2.) 08 Nov 2020 09:36:17
I know exactly what you mean Ed, Iโ€™m still trying to get to grips with the French language and Iโ€™ve been living here for 15 years. The French do appreciate me trying to speak their language but Iโ€™ve looked at some very confused looking faces over the years when attempting to explain something. ๐Ÿ˜‚.

{Ed001's Note - I can believe that, I lived in England for about 40 years but still no one understands my English!}

3.) 08 Nov 2020 09:37:55
I bet his interpreter doubles up as a diplomat lol. Cheers for your input Ed had no idea about the alleged hand grenade incident. Crazy people these Argentinians ๐Ÿ˜ณ.

{Ed001's Note - I would love to know where the story about the hand grenade came from because no one involved has a clue how it came about, but Bielsa has this whole mythology about him which has been created. I reckon you are right on his interpreter, which is why they have him. You know full well that Bielsa will have been taught a lot of things which aren't correct by the players. I remember working with some Kurdish refugees when I was about 17, who were fleeing mass genocide in Turkey and yet we still used to wind them up. We taught them that a polite greeting was f**k off you c**t, for example. I can only imagine what Bielsa is getting taught to say on the training pitches!}

4.) 08 Nov 2020 09:48:22
Having seen a few interviews I think he can speak a lot more English than he let's off. Heโ€™s corrected the translator a few times, which suggests heโ€™s understood what the translator has said and doesnโ€™t feel thatโ€™s what he was trying to say. As Ed said, the only logical reasoning is that he wants that extra level of protection from the press twisting his words, which is fair enough.

Some players who canโ€™t, i.e Aguero who have been here nearly a decade, thatโ€™s a bit suspect.

{Ed001's Note - he does speak English you are right.}

5.) 08 Nov 2020 09:55:53
Now if Bielsa and his interpreter ACTUALLY said that in the post match interview it would be absolute quality television ๐Ÿ˜ " unf#####g believable Jeff" ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.

{Ed001's Note - certainly make interviews more entertaining.}

6.) 08 Nov 2020 10:26:47
Better than the usual BS we're served up anyway ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘.

I think the academy revamp will help with this situation. Obviously we only want to clear out the "deadwood " and not our better players. Cut the wage bill, get whatever we can for fringe players and start seeing the more promising youngsters promoted to the bench. This is the sustainable model the club is looking at in the long run. For now though, with whatever leeway the C.V. has given us re FFP, we have probably spent above our means to ensure we stay in the premier league and the financial riches it entails.


{Ed002's Note - I tend to agree but you can expect interest in Grealish for next summer.}

Ed002 I remember you mentioning Chelsea in reference to this and I believe that because of the ban and their lack of spending their income outweighed their outgoings, hence the wiggle room that created regarding FFP. If wrong I stand corrected.


{Ed002's Note - It is that and significant sales - the Hazard money, Morata, Pasalic, January sales, other smaller sales etc..}

Grealish, to us anyway, is priceless and we'll see how good he is tonight against top notch European competition. At the end of the day he's only worth as much as someone is willing to pay. And with the way the world is at the moment teams won't be awash with money, unless you're Chelsea who saved it during their transfer ban.
Ps Ed002 do you need a cuddle?


{Ed002's Note - I guess you don't understand where the money for transfers came from at Chelsea. There will be attractive offers for Grealish next summer at half of what you are all suggesting next summer. It will give him a chance to step up in his career.}

He is when he sticks to doing the basics and its frustration speaking seeing him under perform when we know it's in his locker to be top drawer.

If he doesn't pull his finger out he might find himself left back-in the dressing room. He has all the attributes to be an absolute beast and bully strikers, unfortunately they're not always apparent. He should go back to playing how he was to get his England call up, not thinking he's the reincarnation of Beckenbauer.

Stones a good shout, obviously needs a change of scenery and regular playing time. Only downside is I believe he's right footed and may struggle on the left as I can't see him taking Konsa's place.

I thought it was a shrewd move tactically with the switch Mark, obviously Trez does track back more but Lamptey had the freedom of Villa park at times and was head and shoulders the best player on the pitch until his sending off.
