Mbaye Diagne not playing or on the bench tonight for Galatasaray.
Hhhnmmmm. I wonder?




06 Aug 2019 22:36:40
Douglas Luiz, gets his work permit.


1.) 07 Aug 2019 10:47:19
I am really looking forward to seeing this guy play .

He could actually be out talisman that’s if we can get him to stick around long enough .

He is so highly rated it’s untrue.

2.) 07 Aug 2019 15:19:13
And me kenn, every bit of footage I have seen on him he seems to be a very clever and attack minded player, and does a lot of damage in the final third.
I am beginning to struggle on what our team will look like, such a lot of potential and availability.
How can you possibly keep the squad happy other than a rotation system.



06 Aug 2019 16:49:01
We are being liked to Mbaye Diagne of Galatasary.
11 Million being quoted.


1.) 06 Aug 2019 21:26:17
this guy has some goalscoring record. older than smiths usual player choices. would be good addition.

2.) 06 Aug 2019 21:41:43
Very similar to Wesley, surely we need something different.

3.) 06 Aug 2019 23:27:34
Who do you think then Chris? Because every striker that’s mentioned in your opinion is too similar to Wesley.

4.) 07 Aug 2019 08:26:14
No mate, just this one, name me another that I’ve said is too similar to Wesley?

5.) 07 Aug 2019 09:11:44
Jean Kevin Augustin.

Just out of interest who do you think we need?
I would take a punt on Sturridge, someone who can finish instinctively, doesn’t do much else but when the balls in the box comes alive.

6.) 07 Aug 2019 09:23:55
Fair enough😂 I just think we need a finisher, sounds stupid but Michael Owen type before he got crocked, quick, nippy, can get in behind and at home in the box, I would have loved Maupay but that ships sailed. I see Watford still can’t agree a fee for Sarr, he’s can play both positions winger and striker, goal scoring record isn’t there but some players suit premier league better. Glad I’m not the one who’s got to find one, going to be a busy two days.

7.) 07 Aug 2019 09:45:26
I’m trying to think of some speedy natural finishers who we could realistically get

Struggling to be honest
The lad that Everton signedwould of been ideal Moises kean.

8.) 07 Aug 2019 10:58:48
I’m not sure about Diagne to be honest .

Scoring record is amazing

However looking on the bible that it you tube 😂 he doesn’t look great and link up play and bringing others into the game .

I would prefer Augustine to be honest but who am I 🤪

One thing for sure is deano is creating a team that can score goals from front to back so I’m not worried if we don’t get another striker.

9.) 07 Aug 2019 12:02:04
Yea that’s the type I was thinking of, quick nippy natural finisher, god knows who, Mbappe? 😂.



04 Aug 2019 20:12:35
I have just been reading it looks like Benrahma will be joining us.
Maupay is reported to be having a medical at Brighton.
I hope the Benrahma deal goes through quickly so we can concentrate on another striker.
Happy days.


1.) 04 Aug 2019 21:00:00
Dave really hope you aren't a clone of kingy.

2.) 04 Aug 2019 21:37:21
Kingy reports BS, this is all over the papers scottcafu, it’s a bit different.

Looks like we’re getting the winger we both wanted Dave, now if we agree on a striker does that mean they’ll go and get him haha?

3.) 04 Aug 2019 21:42:04
Kingy, Hahaha, I love it scotty.
Also just noted on sky, Brentford close to signing a French winger come A/ M.
So maybe a pointer there.
Fingers and legs crossed.

4.) 04 Aug 2019 22:56:11
Chris as long as it ain't terrible tekkers.

5.) 05 Aug 2019 08:18:38
😂😂😂 come on give Big Ben one last chime.



02 Aug 2019 21:43:42
Villa not interested in Kalvin Phillips this time around.

Just a thought, I hope the contracts our players have signed with Villa are and have (UECs) Unilateral extension clauses.
The reason I say this is because of all the speculation again surrounding John McGinn.
This for me is just the start, and if we maintain our status in the premiership a lot more of our players will attract attention,
Marvelous, Grealish, Guilbert, Engels, to name but a few.
That said a large proportion of our squad have already increased considerably in value.
So for me it now seems a reasonable and logical time to extend all contracts of our playing staff.
We have over the years lost huge amounts of money on players being sold on for peanuts or players just exhausting their contracts.
If we want to deter predatory clubs from poaching our players we need to extend all contracts and include buyout clauses to all.
I am sure Christian Purslow has allowed for this, if he has it needs addressing sooner rather than later.
January can be very bitter.


1.) 14 Oct 2019 18:31:45
Most of those only signed in the summer and Grealish got a new deal last season.
We don't want them moving for peanuts but we also shouldn't go back to the O'Neill days where we were tripling a players wages after a couple of good games.

2.) 14 Oct 2019 19:06:42
I am fully aware that most were signed in the summer, and that is my reasoning.
We are miles off the O`neill days, we are far better structured.
I have also not mentioned wages, not every player wants more money to sign an extension, agreed it can be a factor but we don`t throw money about like we used too.
Triple wages is a tad excessive is it not.
You obviously don`t agree that`s fine, but clubs stance against players has to start somewhere.

3.) 14 Oct 2019 22:06:46
But why renew 3-5 year contracts within 3 months?
An agent is always going to negotiate an increase in a renewal even if it's small.
When Gabby got into the first team he got 2 contract renewals in 1 season going from 10-15k a week to 60k a week which means bare minimum it doubled each time but I'm sure the first one tripled his wages.

4.) 15 Oct 2019 08:11:32
When your best players are in their mid twenties and their contracts start running below 3 years, look to renew. If players jump up in importance/ ability (example McGinn) then tie them down to a new deal so their paid fairly and their contract lengths are up to date.

5.) 15 Oct 2019 14:06:58
Thank you chris, I new we had something in common mate.



06 Oct 2019 12:27:13
I have to agree with Scotty and his opinion on Taylor.
I also think we are a much better side going forward without him.
My reasoning is that the team have more confidence and trust without him.
I also think to say that has nothing to do with complaining about Villa, its a perfectly valid observation about one part of a machine that if its not working properly take it out and replace it.
If that`s not common sense I don`t know what is.


1.) 06 Oct 2019 14:52:46
Dave be careful, you are opening your self up to RK and Chris's wrath. I agree there is absolutely nothing negative in stating the obvious and it's not surprising to many that our best performances of late were the first half last week and yesterdays 90 minutes. Check out the team during this period. I just hope Deano gets backup in January as Targett may be fragile.

2.) 06 Oct 2019 15:53:10
Because bar the second goal to Burnley Taylor hasn't actually done anything wrong and I don't have an agenda against any player.
I've previously said that each one is better depending on the circumstances. I think Targett would get found out against City and Liverpool so Taylor should play those games for his experience in managing games but for the games we should look to dominate we should use Targett.

3.) 06 Oct 2019 16:55:38
I will say it one last time Taylor is the weakest left back in the premier league by a mile, he is to short, can't win headers, too slow, can't cross, can't shoot, can't attack, no matter who who play he should not be anywhere near the first team again.

4.) 06 Oct 2019 20:10:35
In a nutshell, Scotty.

5.) 07 Oct 2019 09:53:31
Everyone agrees on Taylor, if that’s not clear to see the I don’t know how else everyone can spell it out. No one is in disagreement on him or his ability.

But comments like “if Deano hadnt been so blinkered we would be a few points better off” after a 5-1 win, is what winds people up, and further proves that with this fan base you can never truly win. Add to that the fact Targett was injured for quite a few games, Hause missed a game through injury and Dean Smith (you know the manager who got us promoted) is around them every day, with a team full of experienced coaches helping him make decisions, comments like that just flaunts ignorance and arrogance.

6.) 07 Oct 2019 22:05:31
Rk I’m sure taylor was out jumped for Burnley’s first goal?



28 Sep 2019 13:25:11
I have a strong feeling that Trez will get off the mark today.
He seems to be finding his feet, and looks to be getting better every game.
I hope he does score because I think he could be a decent player for us.


1.) 28 Sep 2019 14:09:06
Trez on bench which has supprised me.
Much prefer him to el-ghazi in my opinion.

2.) 28 Sep 2019 14:13:32
Unfortunately he's been dropped from the starting lineup. Looks like Jack has been moved into the front 3.



25 Sep 2019 22:09:13
Well I am very happy with the result tonight.
Well played lads, I hope we can take something from the performance and hope the players left out tonight will become aware that places in the side are not and should not be guaranteed.
Well done Villa.


1.) 25 Sep 2019 23:18:00
Hourianne needs to start all the time aswell he's got an eye for goal and is lethal at set pieces drop luis who isn't that good.

2.) 26 Sep 2019 10:06:48
Luiz has been dropped if I'm not mistaken?



23 Sep 2019 18:47:41
Got to say, a lot of people on here complaining about the team, staff and training etc etc, tend to be the same people.
They make a statement post their comment and rarely reply to the responses they receive.
I call it idle criticism.


1.) 23 Sep 2019 20:15:35
Well said Dave .

2.) 23 Sep 2019 21:25:52
Usually because the reply’s will highlight just how ridiculous they sound, then they have no answers.

Same people wanted Smith out mid way through last season, they never learn.

Pointless going on about it scotty, I think you said 5 games.
So let's see how things are after those 5 games.
All of this only breeds discontentment on the terraces, media and the club itself.

Very harsh 82, I understand its your view, but way too damning at this early stage.
No wonder the divorce rate is so High, people have no tolerance or patience anymore.
If you can't have it now, stamp your feet and sulk.
Trust me things will change, give it time.

4eva, why would you have second thoughts about Deano what has he done to make you feel like that, he is learning like everyone else mate.
And can I ask, if you are not saying get rid, why are you asking for a Jose to take us to the next level?

Echoed mate.


{Ed001's Note - the whole thing was a joke. There were loads of obvious ones they missed. PGMOL protecting its members rather than doing its job.}

Blimey kingy I think every media source in the land is talking about us getting Benrahma, do you really think we believe you are in the know when you state common knowledge.
When you say bb I take it you mean Bjarnason, where is he supposed to be going to.

Villa4eva, There is and always has been a problem with the world and society in general.
If we were all blind and deaf there would never have been a problem in the first place.
I will leave that one in the air, and people can summarise it for themselves.

Walkies, you have to ask yourself if he played for Liverpool or Man Utd how much would they want for him, well the same applies to us.
Another season in the prem and with the same rate of improvement, I think he will be worth more than 70 million.
What we must do is keep his contract up to date.

We are people of Great Britain who support Aston Villa.
We should all stick together and point these morons out to the people who can do something about it, Stewards, Police, etc.
They should then be named and shamed and banned from Villa Park for 2 years.
We are too soft on people nowadays, and there needs to be a consequence to peoples behaviour.
I love my family to bits every single one of them, and know 100% that they would never behave in this way, but If it was my son or relative I would reported them no question, Job done.
