Valencia looking at Marvelous Nakamba if they fail to sign Lucas Torreira.


1.) 26 Jan 2021 18:54:42
Given his performance last weekend I'd be disappointed if he did leave but then again if we got decent money it would soften the blow.
Hope he stays and shows same qualities as Saturday.

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 May 2021 18:52:22
Daz, how can you mark players like
McGinn, ElGhazi, Ramsey, as a C,
Sanson a C who has had limited game time, and Davis a D, and Trez a C.
I have got to ask mate, here do you get the evidence for scores like that?


1.) 12 May 2021 19:33:47
Its my opinion Dave as I answered to Chris I perhaps have been a little strict on a couple but some players ie Mginn has not performed aswell as the previous season Sanson I really should have gave a D but when he has played he at least put himself about. Davies for me is not PL standard Trez and Elgazi have scored some important goals that's why I gave them a C.


2.) 12 May 2021 20:22:15
Exactly Daz, its your opinion mate, and I admit on the whole they seem pretty fair to me, but you have helped make my point.
When the so called doom and gloomers named a few players as not performing, we got hammered, when in fact, it was our opinion.
We just said it rather than give them a letter C OR D.
You appear to have done exactly the same, the only difference is, I prefer to say I don`t think they are good enough, rather than give them a letter of merit.
Remember Daz, myself and others were the ones who were slatted in the first place, for voicing our observations and having an opinion on what we were seeing on the pitch.
I think the above proves that we will never always agree, but there has to be tolerance and reasoning, to other peoples views.
I am not going to say anymore on this topic, as I think its all been said.
So I am looking forward to a great new season, with the type of banter on here that we used to have.
Daz, I hope this is taken as constructive.


3.) 12 May 2021 20:55:57
I took it as not eating them for how good they are or how good they’re supposed to be, but how good they have performed when they’ve played. Which the ratings were pretty spot on in my opinion, Sanson for his limited game time put himself about every minute, was brilliant against Wolves but then was average to underwhelming in other games so C/ C- is about right imo.


4.) 12 May 2021 21:14:40
With all due respect Dave I have not slated any player nor have I slated the manager all I said was that Mginn hasn't performed aswell as last season that is it and gave him a C how you got the conclusion that I have done the same as you and a few others beggars belief. Week in and week out during our baron spell you along with a few others constantly slated the team and the manager. I don't know why when we have had the best season in years and I'm sorry to say sometimes it seemed as though you and the others was just looking for a argument. Again mate don't take this the wrong way but as a poster you never used to be like this you always saw the positives what's changed god only knowing as you said I hope this is taken as constructive.


5.) 12 May 2021 21:43:30
Exactly Chris.


6.) 12 May 2021 22:24:55
Daz, I am still the same old me mate, nothing has changed at all.
And I have never looked for an argument either, some people don`t like being told the truth, that`s the problem.
The point is If we cannot comment on what we see, and be honest about it, which I can assure you I try to be, there is no point.
This is what you have said about McGinn : Mginn hasn't performed as well as last season that is it and gave him a C.

What I said was he was not playing well, and midfield is getting bypassed, and I got slatted for it, so what's the difference.

So I will rest on my laurels mate.


7.) 13 May 2021 07:42:21
“some people don`t like being told the truth, that`s the problem. ” there’s the problem, it’s not the truth, it’s your opinion.

Every post on here is now one of three or four topics, if someone goes outside of these lines it’s hijacked back to the standard. The other day someone posted about Man U game and Watkins Penalty, a response followed that was along the lines of “exactly mate, Everyone knows smiths under pressure now”, even though that’s not what the poster was trying to say. It’s boring, monotonous and makes people not want to post.

End of last month I thought I won’t respond to any post that is that way, or has been twisted into them lines, think I posted once in two weeks, and it was a warzone on here.

It used to be a laugh on here👍.


8.) 13 May 2021 10:12:52
I have to applaud you Dave on turning a post I wrote to try and get people talking on here around to try and and justify yours and others negativity around on my self won't happen and never will me myself have learnt that positive vibes are good vibes you stick to your agendas mate i'm sure you and a couple of others will rest on your laurels.


 

 

11 May 2021 21:49:55
Hope its not true about Heaton.
Looks like he might be on his way to Man Utd for absolutely Nowt.
He is undoubtedly to good to be on the bench, and should be playing, but not for nothing.
Will we ever learn, we have lost millions over the years, and we are still losing money.


1.) 11 May 2021 22:18:12
Dave, I think it’s likely he will be off but what I don’t understand is if he wants to play, why is he going back to Utd where he is likely to be 3rd choice? I had read somewhere the Baggies were interested as they expect to lose Sam Johnstone now that I could understand however it does seem he’s destined for Utd.


2.) 11 May 2021 22:20:50
He’s 35 Dave, recently back from a bad injury, in the last year of his contract, leaving on a free, swapping one bench for another. We quite literally aren’t losing any money here?

This type of thing happens all the time, especially with older back up keepers, there’s countless examples.


3.) 12 May 2021 02:17:13
Rumours are that Utd are going to cash in on De Gea so doubt he'd be going there to be no.3. Even at number 2 he'll get more game time with them being in europe and generally progressing further in cups than we do, so fair play to him.
We've moved on and got ourselves a better no.1 while he's approaching the end of his career and the end of his contract having done a good job for us. Don't see how anyone is losing out on this and certainly doesn't strike me as an opportunity to view the way our club is currently being run as negatively. Each to their own though I suppose.


4.) 12 May 2021 06:43:15
Plus freeing up £40 grand a week for a younger player seems astute business to me seems we learnt a lot from yesteryear.


5.) 12 May 2021 07:57:04
Jed Steer steps back in and were saving money as Daz points out. We let Tom finish his career where he started, with an outside chance of playing the odd game of champions league football and living back where his from. Villa save 40 odd thousand a week and have a ready replacement who is a good character and well like in the dressing room. Everyone’s a winner in this situation, I can’t see how this could be a negative.


6.) 12 May 2021 23:25:44
I think it makes sense for him to go back to United. Second choice behind Henderson if (when) De Gea moves. He’ll get cup games and possibly play some in Europe. I think while we’re not in Europe and offering so many games, it’s difficult to keep a backup keeper of his level. Steer can be the back up to Emi, and Sinisalo will be back from his loan to be our third option, maybe?


 

 

11 May 2021 16:03:55
To be honest, I would like to see young Aaron Ramsey given a run out. Every time I have seen him, he has shown energy, vision, trickery, and has a great eye for a goal and pass.
Would not surprise me one bit if he became a better player than Jacob.
With his game now, he seems to be developing very quickly, into a more complete player.
Watch this space 👍😎.


 

 

06 May 2021 17:23:37
I have been monitoring with great interest, the unwinding of the story surrounding Carney Chukwuemeka.
The more I read into it, the more I feel there is great substance to the story, and we could indeed lose him.
This story could be the beginning of a far bigger picture, a picture that will prove what some of us have been saying for a very long time.
Although we appear to be making progress with the development of young talent, I fear it will not be used for the benefit of our own club.
I hate to say it, but I think there is a lot of porkies and false hope, being showered on our youngsters and fans.
I will say it again, our young players need to be shown belief, and given the chance to play on the stage they crave.
To the top people and management at Villa park, "WAKE UP".


1.) 06 May 2021 18:06:34
Spot on dave I've been saying for weeks we need to look at them in the first team or they will go. Not all together but one at a time. Chuck, Barry and a couple of others between now and the end of the season.


2.) 06 May 2021 18:15:59
Genuinely interested where you have done more reading into this. And what other sources you’ve been able to access? It’s been known for a long while that many of England and Europe’s biggest clubs held an interest in Carney. they did BEFORE he signed his contract only a little over 6 months ago.

Since signing that deal, he has promoted to train with the first team regularly (one of those to miss the Liverpool FA Cup game due to being part of the first team bubble), he’s travelled with the squad, and made the bench twice at the age of 17.

We are not Blues. if we were in their position I’m sure he’d have been in the side at a bottom-half championship club, same as Bellingham was for them. Reality is we are many, many levels above them. So it’ll be much harder to break into the first team.

Given he’s a part of the squad, if he was ready to start. he would. Smith has shown his willingness to trust young players in how he’s utilised JJ. I find it bizarre that we’d encourage a mentality to force management to pick a player who’s only shown in U18 FA Youth Cup games that he has promise, but not yet that he’s necessarily ready for the EPL.

The only story I’ve seen remains that Football Insider BS that’s been regurgitated across a number of sites but had zero substance. Broken promises? What promises could have been made that can possibly have been broken?

I’d say. have some faith. Dean has said there’s a plan for him. He, and Kesler-Hayden, will be the next two to follow in JJ’s footsteps, and will be involved in pre-season, and in the cup games next season. They’ll get on the bench. And when they are ready, they’ll play.

I think the club is absolutely doing everything right in terms of the academy investment, the recruitment, and the new performance centre. Big things are happening.


3.) 06 May 2021 18:43:39
Ant, when I say read into it, I mean I use my own intuition, and imagination, combined with information from friends and also the media.
I have seen probably 10 different snippets on the subject, so I can only say look around, you will no doubt find them.
I am not saying its fact, what I have said is, I feel more inclined to believe there is something is in it, therefore I would not be surprised if it were true.
Personally I don`t buy into this, if we were this, and we were that, get them blooded.
Ant, I am like you as far as information is concerned, I read what I am presented with, you then make of it what you will.
And in my opinion, I don`t think we show enough faith in our young talent.


4.) 06 May 2021 18:50:49
After they made it to the youth cup final it was agreed by first team coaches, youth team coaches and a select 4 or 5 youth team players that would potentially be in the first team match day squad (as they had been) that they no longer would be in order to keep that squad together and give them the best chance of winning the final. Hence why since the Baggies game, non of them have been involved👍.


5.) 06 May 2021 19:06:33
Well we won’t have to wait too long to find out whose right.


6.) 06 May 2021 19:09:48
100% agree Ant, I'd be absolutely AMAZED (capitals for emphasis LOL) if there isn't a plan in place for our youth set up - This isn't Villa of 10 years ago, the club is being rejuvenated top to bottom behind the scenes and I'd be shocked if the people in charge have made such a glaring error in judgement. Fully expect Chukwuemeka to get first team minutes pre season, and integrated into the squad when fully ready. Also, and this complete speculation, but he may be the reason why we only loaned a creative mid in the summer, either way I trust the club.


7.) 06 May 2021 19:13:52
Yeah I can understand that mentality chris, and fully support it mate.
But that also proves that although Chukky was on the bench, he was never going to get on the pitch anyway.


8.) 06 May 2021 21:09:28
I think the last time he was on the bench was just before their semi final win against Newcastle, I think anyway, which would explain it.


9.) 06 May 2021 21:48:56
Yes mate I think you are right.
You seem a bit down chris, are you ok mate.
Its strange because I can sense something in your posts.


10.) 06 May 2021 22:10:08
It’s all hearsay, he’s going nowhere unless it’s for stupid money wit huge sell on clauses. just paper rubbish. it’s a bit like that part in JANGO UNCHAINED “ why do they call him Eskimo joe? I don’t know maybe he said he was cold 1 time” 😂😂 papers and dodgey sites talking their usual rubbish, they get maybe 1 in 20 transfer rumours correct.


11.) 07 May 2021 08:43:54
No mate all good here, thanks for asking though, hope your well!


 

 

04 May 2021 18:50:09
I have to say I am appalled at the behaviour of the so called police officers, who dealt with our very own Dalian Atkinson.
I listened to an in depth account of what happened that night, and I have nothing but sympathy for Dalian as a human being, and for his family.
The description given about the kicking of Dalians head, made me feel nothing but hatred towards someone, who is labeled a police officer, and a man.
I can only say, I hope you get what you deserve.


1.) 04 May 2021 19:36:53
I'm lost for words dave I was just eating my tea when it was on the news hopefully justice is served properly mate.


2.) 04 May 2021 20:16:53
Let's hope and pray this "black life mattered ". America recently convicted a white cop in the murder of black man, George Floyd, hopefully it will be the same result here, both had underlying heart and health issues that in medical opinions weren't the cause death, justice must be served. Institutional racism is still in our police I just hope the jury do their job and are not swayed by the "they were only doing their job" brigade.


3.) 04 May 2021 20:57:46
The part about him already being incapacitated yet the officer still kicking him twice to the head, hard enough to leave the imprint on his head, was truly truly sickening.

He’s there to protect and he did the exact opposite.


4.) 04 May 2021 21:43:25
Well said guys.


5.) 05 May 2021 15:01:17
It’s truly heartbreaking to hear the accounts in court. I remember being shocked and appalled at the time, and even back then it felt like an avoidable tragedy. What has come to light since is far worse than could’ve been imagined. the level of anger and total loss of control, and has led to the death of a troubled and clearly vulnerable man. HEITS. May justice be served.

I think that would be a great solution for both clubs Mark.
I would be very happy with that, to be fair Tommy boy is far better than a back up keeper, even at his age.

Hi Mark, hope all is well, I have been really busy mate as you know, but I totally agree, he would be a welcome addition to the side.
If reports are right enjoyed his time with us before, and would have very little trouble settling in.
A good value signing all round mate.

Rk, if there are new additions in the next window, then things will probably not need changing.
Hopefully any new players we get, will be better than what we have, and be more capable of carrying out their duties.
We have got most of the juice out of what we have, and at times have been found wanting, all I am asking, is realisation that is the case.
And I reiterate I have never asked for Deano`s sacking, I have said he needs the remainder of this season, and next season, fact mate.

As far as Liverpool are concerned I will leave that to my son-in-law, he is the one who is up to speed on their problems.

Yeah Klopp never changed his tactics, that again is my point, you have to change things.
And rk, I have never said Deano needs replacing.

I see what you are saying John, and I get the point you are trying to make, but its opinions again mate.
It is not possible that we could play any of these players, Chukky, Kesler, Bidace, A Ramsey, and they become Foden class in a year or two.
Also don`t forget Greenwood who has played 50 plus games for Utd, and he turned our defence like a seasoned pro to score, aged 19.
Gems are always hidden mate, you never know its a gem until it is uncovered.

Personally I think McGinn has found his level John, I referenced it the other day, saying I think we have squeezed all the juice out of some players.
I won`t say what I think about players, I have said it that many times now, but I will add, we should know by now exactly what is needed.
Have we really got to cast the line out that far, ?
