Everyone seems to agree we need a striker that offers something different to Wes, for options. Quick, get in behind type, Vardyesque. Not he'd have to keep doing it from now until Jan but, Hepburn Murphys Hat-trick for Tranmere was sublime, he showed a bit of everything and the second finish was brilliant for a young lad.

If we can't find what we want and he's still in good form, I'd love to see him given a go.


1.) 04 Nov 2019 16:15:41
Me too chris, that`s what our academy is for.
He is not a one trick pony, and offers variety, good shout.



21 Oct 2019 17:46:04
Eze from QPR in January would be a brilliant signing, get in quick because the lads price is going up weekly.


1.) 24 Oct 2019 07:24:59
Just to add, Jarod Bowen, goals and assists tally in the championship the last 3 years has been ridiculous. Rumours are he’s a villa fan, he’s admitted that his dad is, now for me if your old man supports someone then there’s a good chance that you do. His contract is up end of the season so won’t be stupid money. Him and Eze would add proper competition for attacking places and make our bench much better if we need attacking subs to change a game!

2.) 24 Oct 2019 09:47:15
Bowen would be great.



07 Aug 2019 12:33:30
Rodrigo link got any weight behind it or made up?




12 Jul 2019 07:54:24
Are we about to see another Wesley type signing where no ones knows it's coming until it's more or less done. Apparently a 15M fee with Man City has been agreed for Douglas Luiz. Some of you may remember they signed him last year but couldn't get him a work permit so he went out on loan to Girona, apparently work permit isn't an issue now, so we're bringing him in as the CDM. A bit annoying they've input a buy back option so if he's any good they'll take him back, but in Purslow and Dean we trust. Love how they are just destroying all the fake ITK's.


1.) 12 Jul 2019 09:07:27
Douglas Luiz bargain of the summer?
Apparently highly regarded by Pep so must be good.

2.) 12 Jul 2019 09:29:50
This a great signing did well in spanish league and pep rates him cb also in today aswell fee agreed for winger just need gk, n striker.

3.) 12 Jul 2019 10:24:15
Looks a good addition to be fair even though I know nothing about him really .

Guillem Balague the Spanish reporter says this guy is class and to be honest he know a thing or too about players .

Only disappointing thing is the buy back clause, but hey just shows how highly thought of he is by Man City.



11 Jul 2019 10:21:20
Konsa in, that's 2 players for every position along the back 4 now, brilliant work.

If they can follow this up with a keeper, defensive midfielder, winger and a striker I think we'd be set for a solid season.

My picks would be Butland, Phillips, Trezeguet or Harry Wilson and Maupay.


1.) 11 Jul 2019 10:57:11
According to BM Villa have persuaded Trezeguet‘s club to let him leave.
Another one on the way to Villa Park?

2.) 11 Jul 2019 11:05:58
But they’re all championship players.

3.) 11 Jul 2019 11:47:36
I have heard Villas offer for Trezeguet is £9.9m.

4.) 11 Jul 2019 12:16:04
Is that sour grapes because the Dingles didn’t get Konsa Vino? 🤷🏼‍♂️ Looking at YouTube of him there’s a hell of a lot of ‘Welcome to Wolves’ comments 🤔


5.) 11 Jul 2019 12:34:38
The dingles really are upset at the minute, can’t see why, it’s only a longer season with more games yet no signings for them, are Fosun bored? Have they realised the fan base they are trying to bring forward will always be stuck in the dark ages? Are the rumours they are trying to sell up true? Where’s the ground expansion? Where are the fans that will fill it? Tune in next time to find out.

6.) 11 Jul 2019 13:55:12
Where has the W 88
gone off our shirts?

7.) 11 Jul 2019 18:35:17
Dont be worried for what were doing worry bout your own team .

8.) 11 Jul 2019 20:43:42
Are these dingles still rocking up on our page!

Don’t worry fella form is temporary, class is permanent.

9.) 11 Jul 2019 21:48:41
Good question Moutinho, I too was wondering why a sponsor would be willing to offer a newly promoted team double what they were offering a team in Europe, then I remembered. the team in Europe is wolves and the newly promoted side is Aston Villa, so makes perfect sense.

04 Aug 2020 22:24:36
Best away day in England back next season, nothing better than Fulham away in the sun for me. Shame we might not be able to do it unless it's in 2021👎.




05 Jul 2020 18:28:02
One team took their chances, the other didn't. Both goals Taylor completely lost Mane for the first, and then Salah for the second, criminal defending, lost concentration for a split second on both occasions and was punished, that's what happens at the top level.


1.) 05 Jul 2020 18:38:43
Maybe he could have done better but expecting him to do everything is harsh. Taylor stopped several chances before that and both of those goals should have been stopped much earlier.
Reina should never have tried that lofted throw to Grealish leading to the free kick, there was no counter advantage to be gained.
Smith's major issue for me is his subs. It was difficult to drag someone off with how we performed for 60 minutes but as soon as they brought on the ringers we needed to do something.

2.) 05 Jul 2020 18:52:25
The commitment and fight was better than it usually is, and they created a reasonable of chances. Against arguably the best team in Europe, I thought they competed well.
We’re only one point off 17th place, so there’s still hope.

3.) 05 Jul 2020 19:05:38
That was a much better performance all round, but.
If you could not see that result coming, you are missing the big picture.
You could see the pattern of play taking that same familiar shape,
punt up, back it came.
To be honest, and no punches pulled, we don`t deserve to stay up, how many times do we want other results to go our way.
We have had chance, after chance, after chance, not good enough.

4.) 05 Jul 2020 19:16:58
You can't play open expansive football against Liverpool, it's suicide.
We did everything but finish our chances in the first half, the support up front was exemplary. Even the start of the second half we overloaded their defence but we're wasteful.
Our problem was that we did not replace tired players sooner. Grealish was playing half injured and still had a chance.
If we could have thrown the likes of Lansbury, Hourihane, Elmo and Samatta on around 65-70 minutes we could have had a chance.

5.) 05 Jul 2020 19:19:46
Weak team, weak substitutes, Liverpool tired us out then put quality on and we got Jota, says it all. We got what we deserved just as we have all season. How any here can see any positives is beyond me. Dave is right we do not deserve to stay up.

6.) 05 Jul 2020 19:37:54
Lots of positives to take, can’t throw the towel in when we’re one point adrift with 5 games to play, that would be cowardly.

When was the last time Liverpool lost at home? We were always going to be on the back foot, the tactics were spot on, we had 3 or 4 brilliant breaks where we out numbered them, we just didn’t take them, the better team won on the day, simple as that.

Talks of “we don’t deserve to stay up” is just self loathing, whoever finishes outside the bottom three deserves to stay up, and whilst we still have a chance to do that, support the team. Last time we were relegated Lescott said it was a weight of their shoulders, and he was crucified, but it seems like some have adopted that attitude already.

We were much better today we just were up against the best in the world. We have been more solid since the lock down, Played 4 games in which we have played 2 top 4 teams, one being the best in the world, And then another team fighting for European places. Let’s just not have the meltdown, for once.

7.) 05 Jul 2020 19:57:54
It’s always the same no improvement we are ok until the 70 mins+ Tottenham both Home and away arsenal the same we have had more than enough chances against these teams. I don’t want to stay up by the skin of my teeth as we did that for seasons before we went down. Go down rebuild the whole club. Some fresh English players would be a good start.

8.) 05 Jul 2020 20:01:03
We were much better Chris and I find it hard to believe that anybody thought we would get anything from this game, given the quality of their players compared to ours. Look at the table guys, how many points have Liverpool dropped this season.
Yet for 70 minutes Liverpool didn’t look like scoring, and we probably had the better chances to take the lead.
How often this season has our defense looked vulnerable from the off this season? Yet today we did actually look reasonably comfortable against the best there is.
So I think there were positives to take from this game and if they continue to play like that we could just survive, why not? Watford and Bournemouth don’t look any better than us.
Other positives were the performances of Luiz and McGinn, who played his best game since his return and Mings was an absolute rock at the back.
So come on guys, get behind your team. UTV.

9.) 05 Jul 2020 20:03:08
Chris, I will support my team through thick and thin mate, and self loathing is a dislike of oneself, so that`s off the mark a bit mate.
With all the chances of putting points between us, and failing to take them is not good enough, and that is my reason for saying we don`t deserve to stay up.
I like to say things as I honestly see them, that does not make you a bad supporter, I tell the truth, I was brought up that way.

10.) 05 Jul 2020 20:35:35
Never would even hint your a bad supporter Dave, you should know that. It’s not the truth though, it’s your opinion, and fair play for sticking to it.

11.) 05 Jul 2020 20:58:13
Sorry chris, not being pedantic mate, but we have failed to take the chance to close the gap, when other teams have lost.
That`s the truth is it not?
That`s what I am saying, its not an opinion, it happened.

12.) 05 Jul 2020 21:08:40
Chris, Truth, Opinion, Facts, look at the table, what else is there to judge. I go for facts look at the league table.

13.) 05 Jul 2020 21:31:56
Still 5 games to go though Scotty, I’ll take 17th at the end mate, wouldn’t you?
Despite the defeat, which let’s face it was expected, I saw a glimmer of hope today, fighting spirit and togetherness, qualities we’ve been lacking for most of the season.

14.) 05 Jul 2020 21:52:42
Hi Mark, I like your optimism mate, and 17th would be brilliant.
Today granted was a far better overall performance, and yet we failed to score again, we have to be realistic Mark, try this.
Out of our remaining 5 fixtures who do you really see us beating, don`t` let your heart rule your judgement.
Nobody has answered this question yet.

15.) 05 Jul 2020 22:16:07
Palace, Everton and Arsenal don’t really have a lot to play for and I think West Ham will be safe by the time we get to play them.
If we show the same level of fight and togetherness those games are winnable.
Yes, they need to start taking their chances but I think the goals will come. I also think Deano should give Louie Barry a chance if Davis and Samatta can’t find the back of the net maybe he could, well worth a try I think. He’s scored goals at every level he’s played at who’s to say he can’t do it at this level. Deano won’t know for sure until he gives him a chance.

16.) 05 Jul 2020 22:30:43
Your right Dave, we keep missing the chances to close the distance, that wasn’t what I was disputing. “We don’t deserve to stay up” is an opinion though, not a fact, that can’t be determined at this point in the season when we are 1 point a drift from equally hopeless teams with 5 games to play. Do I think we’ll stay up? No, to be honest, do I think we still have a chance, yes, it isn’t over till the fat lady sings, stranger things have happened.

17.) 05 Jul 2020 22:31:37
I see your thinking Mark, the problem with that is teams don`t let you win just because they have nothing to play for.
So you honestly think we are going to win 4 games out of the five.
Ok hope you are right, now is that your head or heart Mark.
We have been banging on about Barry for a few weeks now, its not going to happen until all is lost mate.

18.) 05 Jul 2020 22:44:51
No Dave, they won’t just let us win, but you would think teams in those mid-table positions would have one eye on finishing the season intact and therefore starting next season fully fit. Why risk playing with maximum intensity for nothing.
By contrast we have everything to play for and today the players showed what I was hoping to see before now, FIGHT and it may, or it may not make all the difference, let’s hope it’s the former.

19.) 05 Jul 2020 22:53:35
Come on guys get real, ten consecutive games without a win, are you really expecting a couple of wins out of the remaining five games. Let's just look at facts.

20.) 05 Jul 2020 23:06:31
Ok Mark, fingers crossed mate, a point would of been nice today.



04 Dec 2019 21:26:42
Beaten by the better team tonight, but not embarrassed, gave it a decent go and showed we can defend with our backs to the wall. Few players have dropped off a bit, I hope it's just due to fixture congestion.

I also hope the club saying we won't be busy in January is just smoke and mirrors because we need more attacking wise off the bench, and Wesley needs competition. In my opinion we are a Striker and Winger away from being a comfortable Mid Table prem team.


1.) 04 Dec 2019 21:51:53
We need pace to bring off the bench for the last 20 minutes.

2.) 05 Dec 2019 07:05:11
I agree Tom, Jota offers 0 threat.



01 Dec 2019 19:13:30
Side note, who was it on here who said they've always thought grealish was average and actually called him "average jack" with his mates? Just wondering.


1.) 01 Dec 2019 19:47:04
It wasn`t me mate, but I will hold my hand up and say I have criticised him in the past.

Lets be honest, he has come on a bundle in the last 9 mths, and he is one serious player.

He sure makes us tick, that`s why I want someone like Jarrod Bowen who could take Jacks role on if he gets injured.

2.) 01 Dec 2019 20:24:30
On other days Jack wouldn't have taken that shot on or at least underhit it trying to pass it in which can frustrate.
I've always said though that his all around game that drags us up the pitch is what we miss when he's not there and our periods of domination against a team we always seem to be scared of showed that today.

3.) 01 Dec 2019 22:19:42
He has infuriated in the past because we know how good he can be, however more recently he has been phenomenal. Just wanted to know who was knocking him and almost enjoying the fact he had struggled after one poor game earlier in the season.

4.) 01 Dec 2019 23:33:08
Me Chris he was average at the start of the season but he is coming good now say it as I see it mate.

5.) 02 Dec 2019 08:29:49
You didn’t say that at the time though did you. You said he’s always been average and you have always referred to him as average jack. This should be a lesson in not coming on here after a poor result and talking impulsively.

6.) 02 Dec 2019 10:20:35
Chris I don't know what your problem is trying to belittle people with their opinions but it is quite bewildering to be honest. Jack had been average at the start of the season and I quote you "I agree with you Daz" When I said strip him of the captains armband to give him more freedom to express himself. Now the lad is coming good he is having a rich vein of form at the moment that can't be denied but he has to do this constantly maybe that is why he hasn't been selected for England yet don't you think?

7.) 02 Dec 2019 13:23:53
So is he still average jack?

8.) 02 Dec 2019 17:22:11
Wish "average'Wes was half as "average" as "average" Jack, he might hit the target occasionally, after all what do you expect for £22 mill. If we had a half decent striker on the bench I am sure Wes would be warming the bench by now. I'm pretty certain when we buy in January Wes will become a squad player.

9.) 02 Dec 2019 17:44:19
At the moment Chris he's playing well.

10.) 02 Dec 2019 20:28:42
Emmy point is daz next time he has a bad game don’t over react and start telling everyone how you always thought he was over hyped and you’ve always called him average jack.

11.) 02 Dec 2019 21:21:05
Chris it's called freedom of speach I can do and say whatever I like.

12.) 03 Dec 2019 10:21:00
How can you not, as a man, be embarrassed by it though?

13.) 03 Dec 2019 16:29:58
Embarrassed by what? Jack was average at the start of the season no question about it why on earth are you still going on about this Chris Trust me I've read some of your comments before and I think is he for real but I keep my mouth shut. You don't rule this site even though you think you do I'm entitled to my opinions like you are yours so I suggest you look to the future and not dwell on the past.

14.) 03 Dec 2019 20:46:11
by all means question anything I post, I’m not that precious that I’ll get offended. But I don’t post out of emotion trying to point score like a child “I’ve always thought he was average”, then change my tune a few months later.

My mistake, just looked quickly, not John, another poster, it’s there in black and white, “You and a few more have an obvious obsession for him”.

You seem to be bringing in a lot of random things that have no relevance, if I have upset poster before, so be it, I suppose your an angel mate. You have tried to belittle people in this thread for their opinion, it’s been called out and you’ve changed subject, made it quite personal and threw your toys out the pram. Maybe a look in the mirror is needed, last time something like this happened with you, you blamed everyone else, played the victim, gave a big speech about leaving then came back two days later. Back then I was just reading however if this is what you needed to understand people have different opinions to you, and that’s ok, and you don’t need to try to mug them off and get sly digs in on them for it, then I’m happy to have been involved🤝 You’re welcome btw.

No ones trying to make the victim, just highlighting the way you go on around the Grealish debate. You told Villajohn above that he has an obsession with Grealish simply because he agreed with an opinion that if we sold him we’d likely get relegated, and opinion that you also called tosh. That’s belittling people for their opinion, you do it anytime grealish is mentioned.

I don’t know what your going on about manipulating things, just tried to highlight how you come across when giving your opinion on the grealish debate and the way you speak about opposing opinions on the matter, the proof is there in any thread discussing the matter. nothing needs to be manipulated. You don’t need to claim people are obsessed with a player simply because you don’t rate them, you don’t need to say other people’s opinions are tosh simply because it’s not the same as yours.

As for making myself a good guy, do me a favour😂 It’s words on a screen, lads discussing football, no ones a good guy or a bad guy.

Dave you seem to get very touchy when anyone has an opposing opinion on Grealish than you. You’ve told every man and there dog for the last 4 years At every oppertunity how average you think he is and how you want us to get rid of him. That’s fine, your opinion and your entitled to it.

Doesn’t mean if people think he’s a decent player and our best at that, you can attempt to belittle them, claim they are obsessed with him and exaggerate how much they rate him.

I said without him hello championship, why? Because he’s our best player, 10 goals and 6 assists this season, without that we are relegated. So how can the opinion that if you take that away next year we will be relegated, a load of tosh? Because it’s not your opinion? What happened the last time we sold our best player, Benteke? It’s an opinion, an educated one on what he gives us as a team, how much it would cost to replace that and what has happened in similar situations in the past.

No one is obsessed with him, Villa was here a long time before him and will be here a long time after him. But not wanting to sell your best player and worrying that without them you may struggle, shouldn’t leave people not wanting to share there opinions because your going to jump down their throat.

Before lockdown I’d agree Dave, bloke infuriated me. Since lockdown though it seemed like something clicked, his performances and attitude were top notch, the way he was barking at the defence aswell, I liked that. Seems like a big character in the dressing room as well. Wouldn’t want him first choice, but back up keeper I wouldn’t grumble.

You seem to be confused, so I will try and make “ backing your points up with nonsense RHLT” as clear as possible.

You said it was a two horse race implying Lange has had it easy, in the past decade 4 teams have won that title, your statement is not correct, and if you are using that to help your decision, you are misled.

Nothing to do with not wanting to have debate with different opinions, we have great back and forths on here, with multiple poster with all different view point. I myself didn’t ask you any question, just pointed out the incorrect information you provided when giving your opinion.

There’s something to be said for people who constantly claim to want something else. We have appointed him less than 12 hours ago, and you are already trying to discredit hit achievements and credentials. Give the man a chance.

Scored goals that ultimately kept us up (Arsenal, Palace), and showed up when the pressure was highest and we needed it most. Sometimes infuriating to watch as it’s like his brain can’t keep up with his body, he gave the ball away five times in a row against Everton, in the space of about 10 minutes, I nearly broke the tele😂 but as a back up and someone to come off the bench, I’d be more than happy with him. Plus his attitude is first class.
