Something somewhere about rashica again 🤦🏻‍♂️.


1.) 04 Oct 2020 16:57:45
Do we think it’s something to with the fact these reports are coming from sky, and sky own a gambling site which offers odds on this? 🤔.

{Ed002's Note - Sky don’t own a gambling site.}

2.) 04 Oct 2020 17:10:38
Says Leeds and Southampton are trying to get him too aparantly. Personally I can't wait for the European transfer deadline to pass so we can move on from the rashica talk. If we manage to shift a couple of players on we should move for benrahma imo understanding with Watkins would be ideal.

3.) 04 Oct 2020 17:36:53
Sky bet Ed?

{Ed001's Note - they sold it, I think they have a 10% stake now.}

4.) 04 Oct 2020 17:34:49
Eds do you know of any concrete offers for rashica today.

{Ed002's Note - I cannot answer that but several sides including Aston Villa are keen - it may come down to the players choice.}

5.) 04 Oct 2020 17:47:47
Apparently we’re in advanced talks now

Deal imminent.

6.) 04 Oct 2020 18:03:45
Ahhh cheers Ed.

7.) 04 Oct 2020 18:07:26
If we see him on TV tonight at the game, then I’ll believe it, exciting stuff though


8.) 04 Oct 2020 20:17:48
Cheers eds.

9.) 05 Oct 2020 17:24:55
Saints have gone for Walcott. I know he plays down the right, not the left, but I can't imagine them signing both, especially with Redman also at the club.

My 5p is on Rashica not coming to B6. TBH I am sick of the story and think he has shown minimal commitment to the move.

I have always felt our budget was likely to be around £75-80M, rather than the £100M quoted in the Sun. No insight, purely a feel in my water, which is more reliable than the press most of the time.

10.) 05 Oct 2020 17:59:47
Rashica to Bayer Leverkusen seems to be the latest snippet.



24 Aug 2020 17:34:34
My god if i see another story about villa being in “pole position” to sign Ollie Watkins i'm gona flog my iphone and move out in the sticks with no wifi and without a shop for miles. I can't stand the amount of reporting the same old stuff time and again. 😳🤯.


1.) 24 Aug 2020 18:15:00
Well said NV, its also getting right up my goat.

2.) 24 Aug 2020 19:50:35
With Frank Lampard and Chelsea seemingly interested in signing every man and his dog and performing open heart surgery on his team (could it be classed as "doing a Fulham "? 🤔😁) would it be possible for Mr Terry to use his connections and persuade a few of their cast offs to join? After all these misfits did finish 4th and got to a cup final and would make him feel more at home lol.
There could be a couple of good players up for grabs and could represent an upgrade in quality and maybe provide the marquee signing that could convince others to join the Villa revolution.
Just a thought as I'm bored with the relentless speculation circulating 👍.

3.) 24 Aug 2020 21:11:55
Hudson-Odoi would be a dream on loan. We wouldn’t be fronting the full 130k wages, we’d be getting a quality player who needs game time.

Not a huge fan of the loan market, leaves you with egg on your face, we’ve seen it far too many times, Snodgrass, Tammy. You end up relying on a player then having to replace them, with every team knowing you need to replace them.

But this loan I’d be all for, really think he’s a star in the making, with game time could be a generational talent.

4.) 25 Aug 2020 06:46:08
That’s a good shout Chris, especially if we fail to purchase the likes of Benrahma or Rashica for the left wing position.

5.) 25 Aug 2020 09:03:33
I know it’s just a pipe dream mate, but even I sometimes get carried away😂.

6.) 25 Aug 2020 17:41:35
Haven't we learned from our loan deals before?

7.) 25 Aug 2020 17:59:21
All be patient, things are going on behind the scenes targets identified negotiations ongoing deals being made these things take time.
My sources are telling me two things and that is Watkins is a done deal in relation to personal terms being agreed it’s the fee with Brentford that I say under negotiation my sources say Villa are looking to pay between £16 and £18M with add ons taking it to £23.5M.
The other player we are in for the fee is agreed it’s now down to Villa convincing the player and his agent this is the right move and the club is aiming for champions league football.
As soon as my sources in VP update me you boys will be the first to know.
There is only one king.

8.) 25 Aug 2020 22:15:59
More nonsense then 🤣.



21 Nov 2015 17:18:30
Are ther any rumours or anyone know what's happened to adama traore? Last i heard he was back in training then this thing about his wages and he hasn't been seen since. Is he no better than the rubbish we are using he looked a real player before picking up a knock surely he's worth a punt even if it means 75k a week or whatever?


1.) 21 Nov 2015 17:26:23
personally i would have word and redo his contract meet half way and say this way your getting to play.

2.) 21 Nov 2015 17:29:13
I would be surprised (pleasantly) if we ever saw him play for us again. Far too many excuses regarding his fitness, wages etc. My opinion? He'll go in January.

Yikes we truly got put in our place last night i think we went in with a little too much swagger and allowed them to basically out fight us. In the end it was a case of taking your chances and we didn't finish ours i think targett needs to follow cash and his passion to get about the place and back into position as quickly as possible we looked a lot like pre lockdown after they scored let's reset and go again.




19 Oct 2020 17:20:21
Awesome performance defensively again we showed a lot of heart against a difficult opponent but even if vardy was playing i think we would have gotten something from that game man konsa needs a little call from gareth sadgate me thinks, better than gomez maguire and any rb he likes to play in the middle. Every team will be begging cazoo to sponsor them next season.


1.) 19 Oct 2020 18:00:24
We’ve gone from being one of the worst defenses in the Prem. to currently the best. There surely aren’t many better central defensive partnerships than Mings and Konsa are there? Konsa in particular is really looking the part and has come on enormously, plays like Rio Ferdinand imo. and even resembles him slightly.
Now I can remember a certain John Terry getting a lot of stick on this site not so long ago, for the apparent ineptitude and disorganization of our defenders. Could it be then that his influence is finally kicking in, sometimes these things do take time. I wonder how much influence he might of had in our acquisition of Ross Barkley also, owing to his well known Chelsea connections.
Just maybe some people on here were being a little bit over critical of the guy.

2.) 19 Oct 2020 18:39:14
Couldn’t agree more Mark

I was One who criticised Terry wandering what his role was on the training pitch when we were conceding left right and centre.

Like the old saying “ Rome wasn’t built in a day “ and these things do take time

Don’t underestimate the impact Craig Shakespeare has had a very very good coach ( underrated in my opinion )

3.) 19 Oct 2020 19:05:13
I was one of them Mark, and I know others were as well.
And I personally don`t think he needed a lot anyway, he has always been a good C/ B.
Confidence helps, and he is now playing in a side in form, with a very good keeper behind him, it does make a difference.
I am still not convinced with Terry, he does his bit yes, BUT.

4.) 19 Oct 2020 19:19:46
Think we've all had a pop at Terry, especially last season, me included but if its finally starting to bear fruit then fair play to him. Also can't remember exactly what forum I've seen it on but somebody has nick named Trezeguet Trez Bremner. Now there was an unsung hero of the glory days 👍.

5.) 19 Oct 2020 19:41:57
Des Bremner, fantastic, looks like one of the chuckle brothers now, Frank Carrodus was another, worked like trojans but never noticed.

6.) 19 Oct 2020 20:08:24
He's certainly risen to the challenge of Traore that's for sure plus like Bremner he's playing in front of a winger turned full back also this season ends in a 1. Could history repeat itself? 🤔🤞 I'll check what the tea leaves say but the portents are ominous 👍😁.

7.) 19 Oct 2020 20:20:27
I’m another who had a go at Terry and maybe it is that it has taken time for him to gets his views across, but I think it is more likely a combination things Smith becoming tactically more savvy at premier level, the team getting more astute in terms of game management, the influence of Craig Shakespeare as well an an influx of quality recruits all, including Terry’s influence has had a real positive impact on both performance and results.

8.) 19 Oct 2020 21:46:35
I think we started improving defensively after the lockdown, which was before Shakespeare and the new recruits. I can understand why people don’t want to give Terry credit, especially with is affections for Chelsea being so evident. It’s food for thought though isn’t it, just how much of the improvement is down to him.
I would add that having Martinez in goal has made a huge difference. I really believe that his presence has breathed confidence into the whole team but particularly the back four. A lot of people frowned at the idea of spending a big chunk of the transfer kitty on a goalkeeper, I would be surprised if they’re still frowning.

9.) 19 Oct 2020 23:07:53
Mark I agree we got better defensively after lockdown but we weren’t shutting teams out like we are now, and we didn’t look confident that we could keep clean sheets either, that has changed radically in my opinion since the start of the new season and I agree part of that confidence comes from Martinez but I think the whole squad have seen what the club have done through the summer and seem to be buying into what the current coaching regime are doing and improved results and performance are flowing from it long may it continue. 9 more wins and we should be safe 🤣🤣.

10.) 20 Oct 2020 11:31:12
The defence is looking a lot better but I think it is a combination of things. Since lockdown there has been more fight but also Luiz is playing a heck of a lot better so protecting the defence more. Konsa has improved beyond all recognition and the defence was sat in front of Reina - a bit dodgy at time but must give you a lot more confidence. And this season so far we are more of a threat up front which takes a heck of a lot of pressure off the defence.
When we went 1-0 up i thought we would hang on - how many of us could have said that last year.
Confidence is up and it is all working smoothly, at the moment.



14 Oct 2020 15:57:57
Football changes way too much too often can't they just leave it alone for a few years, jesus. 🤦🏻 If it ent var its let's cut the premier league in half and kill the league cup. I remember when offside was offside what happend to good old tradition stop messing with the game for one minute and enjoy it. If people would stop going out of their way to catch C.V. we might get fans in and lower clubs won't have to struggle and man utd will remain has beens.


1.) 14 Oct 2020 16:21:10
Well said NV, totally agree mate.

2.) 14 Oct 2020 17:26:41
At the risk of being accused of being a Southern snob who hates northerners I have to say I can't understand the mentality of the scousers last night. Next year they'll be wanting an investigation into the government as to why so many of them got C.V. We all miss going to games and these idiots aren't helping.

3.) 14 Oct 2020 19:22:22
There are scenes like that all over the country and have been since March. There are idiots from top to bottom in this country. Liverpool is just the latest in the media spotlight.



01 Oct 2020 21:25:36
I get the idea that none of those players tonight really gave a 💩. Last round people looked like they were playing for their shirt until they found out no matter what they do they ent getting a start. Sulky performance by all bar ramsey and nakamba no desire to win i felt like i had gone back 4 years.




13 Sep 2020 19:07:46
So i assume we feel we are covered at left back i haven't seen anything linked with anyone. Targett let's face it loves an injury we have cover in taylor and maybe hause but i'd have liked someone to come in maybe alan wright or stevey staunton 😆.


1.) 13 Sep 2020 19:37:23
There is still plenty of time for this.
I think Lange has done an excellent job so far.

2.) 14 Sep 2020 02:23:34
I think we need a lb. If we don't get one both Hause and Mings can play well there. I think Hause is very underrated.

3.) 14 Sep 2020 13:44:46
Dave, I think Hause is great for cover of CB and LB, the problem I have with him is, he overthinks things instead of getting on with it.
He needs to get rid quicker, it has caused us problems in the past.

Jacks sticking on the left then i can see hourihane getting the chop on match day shame for the lad he's going well. I've never rated barkley in his own words he's been a bit stop start there's no doubt there's a quality player in him and now he's at the the greatest team of all time i'm sure he will flourish and enjoy his footy utv.

Bit different paying a season ticket you get the day out the pre match bovril the socialising the atmosphere the added joy when a goal is scored and the best ground in the league. At home you get tin flavour beer from a can and a comfortable seat no mates and a feeling of being had from behind by sky sports after you already have a subscription that shows majority of games that aren't your club then charge you 15 squid for the privilege.

Eddie howe please step forward not that the FA will realise anything either remember when redknapp should have got the job and we ended up with roy put your main striker on corners hodgson🤦🏻.

Aslong as a majority chunk goes to the clubs involved i would have no qualms with buying the odd game for 15 quid. sky etc will be ther recording the action anyway so they shouldn't be charging a hefty whack if its just going into the pockets of the broadcasters. Eds do you know how the money for these games will be broken down? I assume the clubs will be taking profit to make up for the lack of matchday funds.


{Ed002's Note - The broadcasters costs are deducted from whatever income there is and the rest is distributed between the Premier League clubs. There won't be much if any profit as it will be offset against the money the Premier League clubs already owe the broadcasters for the last six months - a total of £330M plus £35M a month until this new scheme starts.}
