Heaton an wesley out for the rest of the season.


1.) 03 Jan 2020 09:53:34
Looks like 3 key players are out with long term injuries then, reckon the gods are against us!
Unless of course some blue nose witch has put a curse on us Lol.

2.) 03 Jan 2020 14:10:48
Mark, if the blue nose witches curses ever worked we would be playing non league football.
Really sad news for all concerned with our injuries non more than the players themselves. I hope our fortunes are reversed for the rest of the season.

Iam delight to say DEAN SMITH has signed a 4 YEAR DEAL! UTV.




24 Nov 2019 23:06:05
Massive game tomz let's roar our lions home to victory. Bowen and benteke would do me in january maybe another lbk aswel because targett an taylor havnt been great to be honest. We need to buy prem expierence we have thrown so many games away due to silly errors and not been able to see the games out! Belive it or not I want the best for this club and I really think we should be setting our sights higher when buying players! If not Benteke then Mitovic from Fulham can't understand why we didn't buy him proven in both leagues.

Wesley will never make it unless he changes his attuide he need to get in the right places and do the right things before he throws his arms in the air. Anyway my prediction tomz Aston Villa 2. Newcastle 1. And Iam sorry but I always have Bruce so won't clap him at all when he scored that goal 4 Utd in the 112 min that cost us the league. And he is a mad blue nose he played for them was captin for them and managed them hate the bloke!




16 Nov 2019 19:45:51
Newspapers report Aston Villa willing to sell Super John Mcginn for 50 million. If that's true then we would need to buy 2 top players with the money. Its obvious to everybody Mcginn an grelish are to good for Villa and should be in a Champions League team rather than fighting relegation.


1.) 16 Nov 2019 20:26:43
That should make your day then, you seem to think he and Grealish are too good for us, and the rest of the team ain`t good enough.

2.) 16 Nov 2019 21:51:25
Well that's bang on take them out of our team an the rest is crap. If we want to keep our best players stop money balling and buy good players keep hearing how rich these owners are then why do we have this crap team bar these 2 that lose almost everyweek? Your in the prem you are a massive club with a huge fan base buy top players. Oh an it can be done look at chelsea an man city they was crap then the new owners came it an brought top top players!

3.) 17 Nov 2019 14:21:03
We used a money ball method 4 years ago, under a different manager, different board and different owner, we haven’t used it since, keep up walkies.

Worth pointing out aswell that out of the 6 players that were signed using the stats based plan, 2 play in the champions league for top clubs, 1 plays Europa and one is a premier league regular having a brilliant season.

4.) 17 Nov 2019 16:58:44
But we need to stay up now chris. Facts are we brought young players with potenial so we can sell them on an the club can run itself which is fine the aims to improve players an sell for big money. that's money balling chris our owners even done a youtube video saying they was going to do it an its good if done right. We need good players now man city owners an chelsea owner didn't do this they were loaded an proved it by buying top players srraight away not like fulham b4 you start iam on about big players.

{Ed001's Note - that is nothing to do with 'Moneyball'. You are using the term completely incorrectly. Brentford are an example of an attempt to use 'Moneyball' in football, and it is nothing to do with selling on players, that is a side effect.}

5.) 17 Nov 2019 18:36:26
I think your miss understanding the “moneyball” system to start with and our transfer strategy. Watch the film, (named handily ‘moneyball’) it has nothing to do with the sale of players. We had a clear transfer strategy in the summer, and that was nothing to do with the sale of player, seen in ya not selling Grealish. We brought young players hoping they will develop together at the same time over a number of seasons. Look at Bournemouth first team, some of them have been there since the championship, with good coaching and cohesion look at what they have become.

{Ed001's Note - exactly chris, Moneyball is nothing to do with selling, it is all about using stats to find undervalued players. Glad to see someone else understands it.}

6.) 17 Nov 2019 19:31:22
Harmony at last, common sense always prevails.
Its always best to know a little bit about what your talking about.

7.) 17 Nov 2019 21:07:35
Jesus I haven’t been on here for a while . I needed to have a break and check into rehab

I’m back, but might just go away again due to a relapse having read the same old tripe over and over again 😂.

8.) 17 Nov 2019 21:40:49
Hi kenn, what tripe are you referring to mate.

9.) 18 Nov 2019 13:00:01
Usual suspect Dave don’t think I need to name and shame but it ain’t me or you 😂😂.

10.) 18 Nov 2019 13:51:46
"Phew" 😅 👍.

For me the Premier League want Aston Villa Relegated. how de brun or silva goal stood? there was 2 players miles offside sterling was blocking heatons view it was a joke. Its not just a 1 off its every week cheated over an over. Now over to Mings norwich Arsenal Brighton and Man City now his cost us a goal yes he cleared 1 off the line today but that's 4 games now his cost us a goal.

If it was neil taylor you would all be going mad. Wesley is a good player but his attuide stinks an sorry but Davis must start next game in the league. Everybody else as been playing well no issue. I think we have more than enough to stay up but if VAR has its way we will be relegated all our goals are checked an 1 in 2 times usually ruled out and then if anybody scores past us an its dodgy then give it anyway!


1.) 27 Oct 2019 07:50:40
You love a scape goat don’t you.

Sorry edd just to clear things up once and for all. Once again I will tell you what our chairman has said. Aston Villa are fully Compliance with financial fair play he says its poor journalism. The owners of the club care about us and will never put us in the same financial disarray that we was once in. Asked is there money for transfers purslows replys yes if need be but we are sticking to our transfer strategy like the summer. Dean Smith will Jack Grelish be sold no people can look but not touch! I got my information from the horses mouth at meeting with fans. Can you tell me where you get yours from?


{Ed002's Note - You clearly don't get it. Aston Villa have been spending money they have not earned - I have no idea what Purslow said and when he said that - summer spending on transfers in cluding agent fees and other costs was in excess of £150M. The club is making large losses which cannot be sustained. The coach was speaking about selling in January and the club would not do that - and no one has suggested that they will. The idiotic claims about how well off the owners are is a joke.}

1.) 03 Jan 2020 19:28:23
We sold our ground to comply with FFP last season. This season we got tv money for going up. We are making no more losses than anybody else plus we had most the squad leave last season. We are fine for FFP You are just guessing we are in trouble you have no proof.

{Ed002's Note - Actually your hero Purslow lied to the fans about the sale of the ground and it is now a matter being investigated by the Premier League. Aston Villa are making significant losses and the TV monies are irrelevant to the conversation - clearly a subject to for you to avoid. Perhaps next time you are representing the fans with Purslow you should ask him why he lied to the fans in June after the ground was sold in May?}

2.) 03 Jan 2020 19:54:10
Walkies, The fact that Puslow said that Villa park would not be sold to a third party, and at a price of 57 million raises a big red red flag.
Villa Park is worth far more than that.
This will not go away anytime soon.

3.) 03 Jan 2020 21:21:16
Couldn't stay away with this going on.
From an accounting standpoint the stadium has not been sold to a third party, it has been sold to another company within the same group. This means ownership still falls within the same consolidated accounts.
The only point of contention can be the valuation as the accounting treatment is within the laws of international accounting standards.

{Ed002's Note - Which consolidated accounts are those?}

4.) 03 Jan 2020 21:45:18
When multiple companies are part of the same group under shared ownership then they must submit consolidated group accounts every year.
The FA can only inspect the individual accounts for AVFC but the stadium and other properties are still owned by the same ownership. Creative accounting but 100% legal and therefore the FA cannot dispute that.

{Ed002's Note - The only accounts that are considered are those two sets submitted for Aston Villa Football Club Limited. One a full set, and one a set for the purposes of FFP. Anything else falling under the same ownership is not relevant.}

5.) 03 Jan 2020 21:51:53
The relevance of my post is that Purslow never lied and you're stirring the pot worse than the fake fans/ the dingles.
Purslow said we would not sell the stadium to an external source and we didn't because it is still within the same ownership structure.

{Ed002's Note - He failed to say the the stadium had been sold already. He is as trails slime around behind him.}



02 Jan 2020 22:50:30
Wesley out 4 9 months so we need a replacement asap. What ever you think about wesley i for 1 think its such a shame he was getting better iam gutted hope its not his last game 4 us because if we do go down which hope we don't can't see him staying as his a brazilian international.




02 Jan 2020 09:43:51
Bowen an mitovic i would be more than happy with but we need a midfielder aswel so drinkwater on loan till super john Mcginn is back will do. Please villa don't wait till 31st january we need help now. Everybody is wining around us an we got man city next so buy asap.


1.) 02 Jan 2020 12:29:38
Dont see us getting mitrovic or benrahma in this window.
Bowen a possible but even that one thinks we may look elsewhere.
They will not spend big after last summer.
Couple of loans and 1.
permanent could be on cards
We will wait and see.



01 Jan 2020 16:15:56
Iam so happy what a win off on way back work tomz UTV well done Dean Smith. BIG BIG WIN 6 TO GO.


1.) 01 Jan 2020 18:20:44
Another brilliant performance from captain and lucky getting first goal disallowed because toe nail was off side. definitely need a striker asap now as kodja ain't looking the best . I think if we keep getting crosses in from wingers giroud wouldn't be bad shout but need another striker aswell . i can't believe how many keepers we have been threw 😂😂👍.



31 Dec 2019 21:00:36
While a few of you will all be waiting for 12 o clock to start celebrating please hold back your celebrations until VAR as Checked its ok to Enter 2020.

Dean Smith said today our owners are rich we are not selling Grelish others can look but not touch that was his words not mine. there's no issue with FFP at all Purslow said our club will not be in any financial problems at all with these owners and they want to build the club not sell off its prize assets. These are from actual words from people at Aston Villa so sorry Edd I will go with what they say more. All this talk about relegation sounds like you want us to go down we are not in the bottom 3 are we last time I checked? If we go down yes players will go but you could say that about any club! UTV.

What serious finacial issues with are going to hit Villa? If you are on about FFP we went up spent the tv money so there no issue there and if we stay up the club will get money again. there's a waiting list for season tickets so we are making money that way plus there will be the dead wood players leaving no there no money issues!


{Ed002's Note - Aston Villa have a significant FFP problem as the books are not being balanced.}

There both going for scans tomz yes they both looked bad but dean smith said it might not be as bad but is awaiting a scan to decide on both. With Mcginn out already we definitely need some quality to come in just to help the lads out when wesley went off we had nobody to hold up the ball so it just came back. Name mentioned tonight daniel sturridge i can't see that tho but we do need a tagart man. Time to offload some aswel likes of lansbury an kodjia maybe even kalnic.

We have since been taken over all debts were paid and we won promotion. We had somebody value villa park you had to sell it for what its worth its the rules. AGAIN THERE IS NO PROBLEM WITH FFP AT ASTON VILLA. You want to make rubbish up you do that but doesn't mean your right.


{Ed002's Note - You are making yourself a complete embarrassment.

100 per cent agree mate. Refs are a massive part why can't they be interviewed after the game?


{Ed001's Note - it is silly.}

Sorry edds by twice I included the man city game. But to be honest it takes far to long for them to make the mind up and these offsides are a joke. When as fans can we celebrate? A lot these offsides are wrong because you can't score with your arm. The norwich game the guys behind him. Why do they have VAR by side of the pitch if there not gona use it? What would happen if a ref did use it do you think mate would he be in trouble for not following proticol? Do you think it was better without VAR.


{Ed001's Note - good point mate, I had completely forgotten that as they won it anyway, but you are right. My apologies. I am so used to dealing with Evertonians complaining everything is a conspiracy to give Liverpool the title and how if it had all been done fairly it would be them top of the league not LFC.

The ref would probably never get given a Prem game again as they are under instructions not to use the pitchside monitor.

It was much better without VAR, I didn't mind the refs making honest mistakes, I just thought they should explain themselves after a game. Maybe sit down and look over the footage and any cards they missed or gave incorrectly could be sorted etc. It was part of the game for me.}
