Villa in talks to sign Wylan Cyprien he is an attacking midfielder who plays for Nice.


1.) 25 Sep 2020 20:08:34
Where did this come from Dave?


2.) 25 Sep 2020 20:29:32
Sky sports.


3.) 25 Sep 2020 20:33:37
Says the Birmingham Mail 🤣😂.


4.) 25 Sep 2020 20:43:06
As John said Aka, Sky mate.


5.) 25 Sep 2020 20:52:05
Villa 81 obviously Bham Mail up to their normal practice of of reporting articles from other sources. They never seem to do their investigations.


6.) 26 Sep 2020 19:48:02
Smith has denied the Cyprien bid.

Seems as if the flow of dubious stories has risen with transfer deadline day getting ever closer. I noticed the Palace chairman, Steve Parish, outed Sky the other day for a fictitious transfer story involving Brewster.


 

 

19 Sep 2020 16:40:46
Buendai, not playing, not on bench, apparently not injured.
I think its a possibility we may be sniffing around him.
Just a hunch, may be wrong.


1.) 19 Sep 2020 17:02:57
Just read he failed a late fitness test on a shin injury Dave.
Of course that’s not necessarily the true picture, so your hunch might be a good one mate.


2.) 19 Sep 2020 17:34:47
Hope you're right Dave, would be a great signing.


3.) 19 Sep 2020 18:06:32
I would like him onboard though Mark, someone else who can carry the ball, and be creative.
It would take some pressure off Jack.


4.) 19 Sep 2020 18:18:45
Yeah Moose, I think he would be a great signing mate.


5.) 19 Sep 2020 18:23:41
For sure Dave, he would be a welcome addition.
We would have 2 Emi’s then, lol, maybe we’ll get an Oscar next 😂.


6.) 19 Sep 2020 19:01:37
Just watched a video of him and besides being a good ball carrier he also has a devastating long pass.


7.) 19 Sep 2020 19:37:38
Whenever I watched Norwich last season he was quality and definitely someone we should be interested in.


8.) 19 Sep 2020 19:53:16
I have read recently that Buendia is definitely on our shortlist from one who is supposedly ITK.

If we did get him, the thought may be to utilise him in the centre just as much as the flank. In fact if he and Rashica both came in, one of the newbies or Grealish would have to sit on the bench, probably in turn.


 

 

17 Sep 2020 17:40:14
Burton Albion have signed Vassilev on a one year loan.
It should be good for him, good luck Indiana.


1.) 17 Sep 2020 18:25:08
Indie off on another quest for a Mythological artifact Dave?
Not sure he’ll find one in Burton
Hopefully he will start finding the back of the net though 😂.


2.) 17 Sep 2020 19:12:40
I’ll have you know Burton is a very nice place, home of Marstons Brewery 🍺 I live just down the road.


3.) 17 Sep 2020 19:13:31
That`s a cracker Mark, I don`t think he will ever be a prolific goal scorer, maybe a bit like a Lee Hendrie.


4.) 17 Sep 2020 19:43:37
I hope it doesn’t prove to be his Temple of doom 😂.
You’re right John the beer is definitely a plus point 👍.


5.) 17 Sep 2020 21:20:55
Should be a good move for him, he reminds me a lot of Andreas Weimenn . Busy player lots of energy and the game time at Burton, will do him good . I wouldn’t think the physical side of their game will faze him, because his time as sub, he certainly put hisself about .
Onwards&Upwards Villaforever.


6.) 17 Sep 2020 23:33:06
Agree with others. Vassilev should benefit from competitive game time and I wish him all the best.


7.) 18 Sep 2020 14:24:29
Good move for him!

Small world Villajohn. I’m in Burton too! Well Tutbury now, but used to live in one of the new houses they built where the old Eton Park ground stood 👍🏼.


8.) 18 Sep 2020 18:00:41
Good to know Ant 👍.


 

 

16 Sep 2020 16:56:00
Apparently we are considering a move for Rico Henry.
Looking at Taylor last night, I should think so, crap.
I think a center back should also be considered in my opinion, as I am losing confidence in Mings and Hause, strolling around as if they have made the big time, wake up.


1.) 16 Sep 2020 17:56:19
Apparently Taylor's contract is up next summer so if we don't get an l/ b to back up Targett now, we'll need to in the next window. Don't now much about Henry except he's another of Deano's pets.


2.) 16 Sep 2020 19:31:55
Henry is quick and powerful. Pretty steady defensively but not afraid to get forward and join the attack.
He's been a regular 7/ 8 out of 10 in the championship. Only minor concern is the long injury layoff he had.
He's at least as good as Targett though so if the rumoured £7mill is true then it's a snip and we should jump at it.


3.) 16 Sep 2020 20:02:05
Do you see a lot of him then rk, you sound as though you are well up on him.


4.) 17 Sep 2020 11:53:22
I've caught enough glimpses over the last couple of years with games on in the background and from watching the highlights shows when we were down there. Most of the regular championship pundits always seem to make a point about his consistency also.

Probably won't be a world beater but world class left backs are almost non-existent these days and someone his level for that price is a no-brainer imo.


5.) 17 Sep 2020 17:32:07
Agree mate.


 

 

12 Sep 2020 19:59:19
Arsenal have accepted 16 mil for Martinez.
Amazing, get in.


1.) 12 Sep 2020 20:24:59
I believe it is £16m plus add ons making £20m.


2.) 12 Sep 2020 20:34:52
Of course Aka, the wife has her doubts as well mate.

30 Sep 2020 14:57:10
Surely this has to be our line up.
To me that line up should make any team think hard about us.

Watkins

Grealish Barkley McGinn Traore

Luiz

Targett Mings Konsa Cash

Martinez

Bench: Steer, Hourihane, Davis,
Nakamba, Guilbert, Hause, Trez.


1.) 30 Sep 2020 15:43:17
Good looking team, bench coming together also👌.


2.) 30 Sep 2020 16:32:01
Dave how about rose to come in for targett to complete that good line up.


3.) 30 Sep 2020 17:47:47
Like your team Dave, but who knows there may be a few more through the door to consider before the end of this window 🤞🏻. I noticed you haven’t got Jacob Ramsey on your bench, is the thinking that he will be loaned out.
I think we’ve already seen enough from young Ramsey to realize he could be very useful to us this season.
Personally, I would like to see him kept on, but with Ross Barkley’s arrival, a loan move may well be on the cards.
What does everybody else think?


4.) 30 Sep 2020 18:07:39
Absolutely SV why not, we definitely need to do something about the left back position.
I would prefer either Guilbert or Elmo than Targett to be honest, there is room for thought.


5.) 30 Sep 2020 18:23:05
Yes Mark, I think we now have what we need in Midfield, and I see Ramsey as a starter next season, I think he may well be loaned out if and when we exit the cup.
On the bench I have named, you could only leave out Hourihane for Ramsey, not sure that would be welcomed mate.
Love Ramsey, and he will be a star, if loaned out I would be happier if he went to a top Championship side, ie Bournmouth, or Brentford or even Swansea.


6.) 30 Sep 2020 18:23:58
Like the looks of that team and the comment about danny rose I think he would be a very good signing if we can get him. Also the young lad from Denmark as further back up. Deano and Lange are definitely making quality signings to improve us further and further.


7.) 30 Sep 2020 18:46:28
Definitely keep him I think we have seen enough to continue his integration into first team duties particularly in the cup games and cameo appearances in the prem.


8.) 30 Sep 2020 18:50:31
That's a beautiful team Dave :-) Don't forget Wesley and Heaton will be back soon, add a striker / winger (King) to that team and it's a very strong side!


9.) 30 Sep 2020 18:53:21
Let’s see if Engels plays tomorrow and does ok before buying a centre half, think the icing on the cake would be to get Josh King in for the £10M that’s been quoted and go with that till January, I’m expecting a top 10 finish now with Barkley coming in if we can keep the core of the team fit

UTV.


10.) 30 Sep 2020 18:58:52
I agree John if we could use him, Markfrance, Moose, and myself are advocates for youth, we always have been.
Its not easy to use everyone, what team would you field and where would Ramsey be in the bench set up?


11.) 30 Sep 2020 19:30:39
Good looking line up Dave and a very strong bench agree about finding a space for Ramsey if he doesn't go on loan. Things are looking good and Barkley will be available for Sunday so a massive boost there. Oh by the way, is it too late to change our minds about the 5 subs rule, now we've got a bit of quality? 😂😂😂😂.


12.) 30 Sep 2020 19:40:20
On the face of it, I agree Dave, if we could guarantee keeping all our midfielders fit. Don’t want to be pessimistic but over the course of a season that’s unlikely.
If we do get our usual bad luck with injuries, then Ramsey could potentially have a big role to play.
However I accept that his development is important, and might be best served playing regularly for one of the better Championship teams. I think Deano will have a tough choice to make here.


13.) 30 Sep 2020 19:43:23
BK, I would not be surprised if King is a late addition mate.
And as you say Wesley and Heaton, blimey we are getting spoiled for choice.


14.) 30 Sep 2020 19:53:07
Where would you put him Mark, and at the expense who? don`t forget Wesley, Heaton and Engels are back soon, its difficult mate.
Like I have said to John we only have five subs, and like Moose has hinted, nine subs and we are laughing. 😂😂.


15.) 30 Sep 2020 20:14:05
Yes it’s ironic that the 9 sub rule would actually really benefit us.
I think if Jack gets injured Dave, God forbid, then Ramsey could perhaps be a good back up.


16.) 30 Sep 2020 20:16:53
Hi Dave,
Following Konsa's performance on Monday I have put the boots back in the shed.
Hopefully for ever. He kept Mitrovic quiet and that is difficult.
We seem to be moving forward quite quickly with the pieces fitting together.
Soon the jigsaw will be complete.


17.) 30 Sep 2020 20:22:54
Absolutely mate, no question.
But we hope and pray that won`t happen, but who would you leave off the bench, or better still what would your bench be? in the case of the team above.


18.) 30 Sep 2020 20:49:17
I think the bench could change accordingly to who we are playing and circumstances regarding the fitness levels of our first choice 11.
For instance if Deano knew Jack was carrying a knock, then putting Ramsey on the bench might make sense.
I think we will need to rotate things to some extent in any case, to keep things fresh and make the whole squad feel they’ve all got a part to play.


19.) 30 Sep 2020 20:51:46
Hi Oldvillan
Great shout, and I agree with you mate, Konsa was real good.
I think he might be developing into that ass kicker we have been looking for.
Still keep your boots in a safe place though OV, you never know.
Its all looking good mate 😂.


20.) 30 Sep 2020 21:03:28
That makes good sense Mark, that`s one way round it.
Well that being the case, it would be reasonable to keep him at VP.
Glad they are not my decisions.
I feel like I have been round the block mate 😂😂😂.


21.) 30 Sep 2020 21:18:35
Targett gets too much stick. He’s mainly a decent option. imo better than Rose. He just needs to up his concentration as his weakness is ball-watching at times. But he’s good going forward, has a great understanding with Jack too. If we bring in a LB it should be a high quality young player to put more pressure on Targett and replace Taylor. I’m sorry but Guilbert is just not a better option at LB! He has terrible positioning, and can’t cross from the right, never mind the left. His recovery pace and love of a tackle make him look better than he is. Cash has already shown how much a better player he is, and there’s a reason Fred is third choice. I love the bloke. bit like Engels. but just don’t think they’re the required standard.

Also. I get the love for JJ. Boy has looked class in the Carabao, and great to see him make his debut. But best thing for him is to go on loan and get a full season in the championship. He came on so much from that short spell at Doncaster, and if he goes and gets regular games he’ll be ready to play a big role next season.


22.) 30 Sep 2020 21:25:39
Dave I like your first team I think it’s spot on, in answer to your question re how I would use Ramsey I would alternate Ramsey and Hourihane on the bench probably using Hourihane in the games against the bigger clubs and Ramsey in the others. As markdavfrance says he also gives us injury cover if required. Whilst I like Hourihane he is not going to be a regular this season and I think his contract is up in the summer and given his age I would be surprised if he extended as he is going to want regular first team football I would have thought therefore better to start to get Ramsey used to premiership football now.


23.) 30 Sep 2020 22:01:22
John, I like Ramsey a lot mate, and rotating him and Hourihane sounds great in theory, and I would go along with that.
But somehow I could not see Hourihane tolerating a rotating bench with Ramsey at this stage of his career.
As I said to Mark, great if it could be done.


24.) 30 Sep 2020 22:34:04
Dave, I know this might sound harsh but if he can’t tolerate it then he can go in January, Lansbury is going to sit tight until next summer, so if necessary we can use him as back up. Who knows some of the other youngsters might have started to come through by then.


25.) 30 Sep 2020 23:30:08
Very true John, its not harsh its how it is, reality.


 

 

23 Sep 2020 22:14:08
Anyone for James Milner, he is not playing as much as he would like.


1.) 24 Sep 2020 00:18:49
All the way, still brilliant and also a leader .


2.) 24 Sep 2020 07:35:00
Yes please his a club legend for every club his played 4 that tells you something about the man an his won it all in the game!


3.) 24 Sep 2020 08:45:00
How Ozil on loan?


4.) 24 Sep 2020 09:32:26
If you’re paying the 300k a week Bucktooth I’m all for Ozil😂.


5.) 24 Sep 2020 14:54:04
Hahaha, if only I could I would! Probably a bad idea as he defends even less than el gahzi if that's possible!


 

 

21 Sep 2020 18:47:34
The time it takes us to get to their are is shocking.
And the same pattern is developing, get the ball in the middle, Watkins will suffer if we don`t.


1.) 21 Sep 2020 19:03:00
Dave so true deano can’t be happy with that done nothing.


2.) 21 Sep 2020 19:13:55
I think Watkins knows this isn't going to be his match. Playing against 10 he just needs to occupy a couple of defenders while we push the midfielders on.
Get Conor, Luiz and Grealish in good shooting positions around the edge of the area and the breakthrough should come. Watkins to stay alert for a rebound tap in if necessary.


 

 

20 Sep 2020 22:08:06
I will stick my neck out here, and say what I think we will do next in this window.
I reckon our next signing will be either King or brewster.
I think Rashica will be overlooked, for now, and I think, if all is going well, we might sign him in the next window.
Possibly Deano and Lange, have a cheap option on a midfielder that me be got in for cover, ie Swift or the likes.
Beat that kingy 😂.


1.) 21 Sep 2020 09:37:36
make sure its kingvilla8 your talking about.


2.) 21 Sep 2020 09:57:37
I love this game of fantasy football particularly in the window when all types of rumours are flying about! So my preference for our next couple of signings would be Benrahama and Origi but I don’t think either will happen. So in the style of Kingy. “ My sources tell me our next two signings will be Henry and King (not the one and only but Josh)


3.) 21 Sep 2020 12:42:22
In the style of kingvilla 8 my sources say next 2 are gray and swift.


4.) 21 Sep 2020 12:44:38
After rashica not being in for his medical on Friday we won't hear from him kingvilla8 that is.


 

 

16 Sep 2020 21:21:01
Hogan has signed a permanent deal with the noses.
Hope we got some cash out of them.


1.) 16 Sep 2020 22:00:00
I’m just glad he is off our books.

Thank you very much for that, well I am certainly wiser than I was.
He is obviously a decent player, the sort we need to move forward.

Yes I agree Ed, I have been reading about him, and he sounds a very useful player.
What do you reckon he would sell for?

{Ed002's Note - Perhaps €15M. Teun Koopmeiners (DM/CM) Milan have had an approach for Koopmeiners rebuffed after losing out on three other DM players. They do not have the funds to push to force a sale. Fulham enquired after him before the window opened but it went no further at that time. Leeds have spoken with his representatives and think something can be done. If there is interest from Everton he would be a Brands choice and he is a very well thought of young player. Against a move happening are a number of points: (a) I am not sure that AZ Alkmaar would be open to selling their captain; (b) he plays in a side which plays a style of football Brands would like to instill throughout the entire club - but he is not being supported by the club in making that happen, and having Carlo as a different thinking coach won't help that quest; (c) if Gbamin is fit where does he fit in - although I see the argument that he would be an ideal Morgan Schneiderlin replacement - but will that give him sufficient game time. West Ham also enquired.

Spot on POL, cover for so many positions is a valuable asset in today`s game.
Since you first posted about him, I have and spoke to people and they are all positive, and say what a great prospect he is.
