Sorry for this being my first post but the only major news on the Net tonight is that apparently we are close to agreeing a deal to sign teenage defender Jacob Bedeau from Bury for around £750,000. Released by Orient last summer - is this the kind of season-saving deal we need to be focusing on right now?

Never seen him play.
Are you saying he's a poor player?
Are you saying he's a good player?
I'm not sure what you are asking

he is a player that will go into our u23s. very highly thought of by a lot of top scouts.

FINGERS crossed looks like like lansbury Friday. i will be happy then sell mcormack back to fulham get the barnsley captain in for 1.5 mill (bargain) just need a forward then i am 50/ 50 about rhodes i would prefer assoumblongla whatever his name is from forest as forest are skint.

The other day I asked everyone to make a mental note of what Djb said, because Lansbury was at Norwich training ground all day his cousin works there.

That damn cousin of mine glad he was wrong on a serious note it was meant as a bit of friendly banter which has worked well enjoy and hopefully we get hourihane and the full back too possibly Brady or someone similar then rhodes too

All over the bury radio, we're trying to get some young defender called bedeau? i was hoping for accomplished, great pace and plays as a striker! oh well, does that mean the bree deal is toast? at this rate all the available centre forwards will have been snatched away.

i can see it now on deadline day, the good doctor has succeeded in the 25 million signing of jamie coppinger from doncaster! joking aside at least he knows where the net is, which is a damn sight more than McCormack-a record of 1 in 15 now i believe, what a belter! robbie keane to the rescue seems to be gathering momentum.

He's a centre back and Bree's a right back

So your friends with certain ex players at the club DJB

And your cousin works at Norwich and confirmed Lansbury was signing for them yesterday .

Wow I hope your right about hourihane and Rhodes but given you said yesterday that villa had no money and had to sell to buy

Also Lansbury hasn't signed for Norwich after being spotted at there training ground yesterday by your cousin I'm sorry I don't believe what you say!

19 Jan 2017 01:12:17
In all the papers we've offered 6mil with add ins up to 9, they want 9 flat out- according to the papers so 50/ 50 if it's true

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jan 2017 05:53:22
Hope we get hourihane, but rhodes?, we got rid of gestede because apart from the ariel threat he had no pace, couldn't link up play and didn't link with mccormack, we have a front line which to me is built on pace and attack.

Agree1 Disagree0

19 Jan 2017 07:48:57
I agree 82, however Rhodes is a better option than gabby!

For me I would be going for scott hogan all day long, quick and a poacher .

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jan 2017 08:42:27
There is a medical booked for today but not sure who it is,
Got a feeling it's just this donker?
Would not buy Rhodes for that 12 million fee,
7mill tops,
But midfield is the top priority,
2-3 need to come in,
Don't you get a feeling for a last day panic buying is about to happen?

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jan 2017 13:19:44
Rhodes offers a lot more than Gustede, just isn't as much an arial threat

Doctor Tony, has spoken and he said there working hard to get deals done its taking a bit longer because clubs want to keep them till deadline day but as asked us to be patient. I trust in Doctor Tony we are all frustrated but let's not make things up and drive ourselfs mad.

Believable2 Unbelievable0

18 Jan 2017 07:01:47
He also asked us to go get some of the targets, so gear up lads.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jan 2017 07:02:17
Dr xia asking for patience, if lansbury is to be in claret and blue, then it has to be done this week, not only so that the players see he's doing his utmost, but also those potential targets out there see we get it done.

i hear lansbury is ready to play for forest again this weekend, either he wants to keep match fit or, he's had enough of us offering an extra sheckle or two above what we've offered.

derby are still watching like vultures, so dr. tony, splash the cash and stop faffing about, also, we're meant to have 25 million war chest, plus whatever sales we generate, so how come people are talking of bruce having to sell, before we buy, also the hobbit could be on his way back to fulham, and finally, i see spinky has had his say on our transfer dealings and a bit more, makes you wonder.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jan 2017 13:22:35
By all accounts it's nothing to do with us or Lansbury a fee is agreed and a contract, just Forest to sign it off now, and with everything going on there you can see why it's taking so long

Agree2 Disagree0

18 Jan 2017 13:28:01
there are many clubs after the same players. Some fans think it's so easy to buy and sell players, most deals will be done in last few days,

Hence the mad last day panic!

17 Jan 2017 19:45:42
no cash until we sell. lol we have the most cash in the division. and even if you were right which you are not I might add we have bought in 6 million for gestede. lansbury will cost 3 million tops.

I'm sorry to sound pig headed but there are few players in the country who would go for Norwich rather than Villa its ridiculous for anyone to say " I hope not " do you guys work for The Birmingham small Heath mail by any chance!

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Jan 2017 20:13:32
Whilst I agree that there is every chance that any player could indeed go to Norwich as money talks

however he local Norwich paper states that in he last 5 hours Alex Neil has distanced himself from signing Lansbury . so if the deal was almost done then why would Neil distance himself from the deal?

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Jan 2017 21:43:40
I can't believe I'm reading this! Villa have the money for Lansbury so if Norwich have made a copycat bid where does three Quarters of the country expect he will sign!? If he doesn't sign for Villa I will run naked down Aston next
home game! Come on guys stop this nonsense. If it doesn't happen it will be his club who have messed it up

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Jan 2017 21:44:37
Another thing . why would Lansbury go from Forest to Norwich?

17 Jan 2017 08:35:10
Our situation is looking familiar. We need new blood but the good Dr wants the dead wood out which means SB has to sell / offload some of the squad he inherited.

With just 6 players worth their place there are many who are available. However none are doing there case any good as they only take part in half a game as they go to sleep for the other half.

The malaise of the last few years, poor buys and bad attitude means that few of our players are wanted elsewhere. SB has to sell hard to get rid and even harder to get players in unless he goes down the leagues where there are some gems.
Our patience is and will be tested because of the crap policy of minimal investment.

Believable1 Unbelievable2

17 Jan 2017 10:36:32
Sell or just give away in some cases Gabby, Bunn, Westwood, Hutton and Kozak. Buy Brady (12m), Hourihane (2m), Lansbury (2m), Rhodes (10m) and Bree (2m) . That's 28mil spent, minus the 5 we could probably scrape for the sell players that's 23, minus the 6 for gustede that's 17 and then sell ayew for 15 to china or back to France and there's 2mil spent with a team full of energy, commitment and proffesionalism. -if only it was that easy😂

Agree2 Disagree0

17 Jan 2017 17:02:10
Have to disagree with Hutton just for rest of this season then off load imo he has been one of a few players to actually care, and try, kept his mouth shut and just gets on with it. Everything else totally agree UTV!

Agree1 Disagree0

17 Jan 2017 17:25:28
Chris, your list is what we need plus 3 more.

If we get 2 That's great, 3 and I'm excited, 4 and I will take the good lady out for dinner and 5, I WILL take the wife out.

Who would want Gabby he is not good enough for a pub team.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jan 2017 09:35:05
15 days left in the window and we have 3 games in that time, I think we are all in agreeance we are 4 / 5 signings minimum away for a play off place so now they need to pull their finger out and bring in players. if not it's going to be the difference between finishing top half and finishing top 6.

That chance hasn't gone yet, there's still so many points to play for, but lazy performances like Saturday where the players have no drive no will to win, will stop us getting there!

Believable1 Unbelievable1

16 Jan 2017 13:21:02
Looks like we're linked to a young German winger Anton Donkor never heard of him but fingers crossed

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jan 2017 13:51:12
Never heard of him either, hopefully he's good but just sounds like Adama, Tonev sort of signing

Agree2 Disagree0

16 Jan 2017 15:52:04
he ain't as good as adama so I'd not really be to thrilled with this signing.

Agree0 Disagree1

17 Jan 2017 07:38:11
Should've kept Adama. We can afford it. He would have ran at Wolves. Decision making over transfers has been crap at Villa for a long time.

Anyone for bring Gil back?

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Jan 2017 09:53:56
Adama wanted out, Gil is probs too lightweight for the Championship, saying that, Forrestieri of Sheff Wed is a similar player, must be that Gil's got no desire, think Veretout would've shone this season, RDM got so many things wrong

UTV

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jan 2017 11:31:40
I think we need to calm down a bit, Bruce needs this window and then we can be more critical. We know yesterday was poor. McCormack needs service. Elphick is a liability at times.

Midfield was over run. We missed Kodjia. Looking on the web at rumours linked to Aston Villa. Hourihane deal is done.

Midfield - Lansbury deal was agreed. not the clubs fault forest sacked the manager and the takeover fell thought. If Rowett becomes manager I am not sure Lansbury will come before the summer.

Rhodes is being heavily linked again. Bruce has done well with the tools he had
Baker back for Elphick. Johnson bought in for Gollini, Gestede gone.

Don Goodman commented yesterday, "Bruce is playing catch up for the bad start under previous manager". At the end of Feb we can be more critical. Tony Xia will spend and back Bruce. The chairman wants the same as us. With the rumours circling Bruce knows what he needs and will get it

Believable3 Unbelievable0

15 Jan 2017 11:49:15
Only thing negative about Bruce so far is that it's two weeks in an we've only loaned a keeper, and the timing of the Gustede sale. Which is both just as much the board as him, needs to get his players in this week before we end up forfitting another 3 points.

Agree4 Disagree0

15 Jan 2017 14:21:30
The villa is to big a job for Bruce,
He has no idea for me,
He rants at the players every game yet nothing changes?
Never was my choice was prepared to see if he can take us forward,
All I can see is a negative manager and the football on view is worse than ever,
We will see if things get better after bringing in his own players,
But remi garde got dogs abuse and he never brought in any players,
But Bruce went down in my book when he continues to play gabby as our main goal threat?
And he has the brass neck to praise his performances?

Agree4 Disagree8

15 Jan 2017 15:19:53
To big a job for him, but thankfully you where prepared to give him a chance!
Have a word with your self!

He plays gabby as at the minute that is all he has, as our previous manager brought players that are in the African cup of nations.
Justhead doesn't count, as he is trying to replace him, and it isn't his fault a deal isn't done yet. so you seriously think he can't see what needs replacing?

If read some crap in my life, but bob you take the biscuit
We went backwards under garde, as in was worse than before he came.
Are you seriously saying we haven't improved with Bruce?

Did you think a guy could come in, click his fingers and repair the damage done to the club over the last 5 years?

Agree5 Disagree2

15 Jan 2017 16:38:54
Spot on flackie your right some people think its as easy as playing champ man

Agree5 Disagree2

15 Jan 2017 16:03:25
Bob you said "he screams at the players every game but nothing changes", to me that means they are not doing what they are asked, hence he's shouting at them, an then they aren't listening hence nothing changes, to everyone else on the planet that says certain players have bad attitudes and too big an ego to perform for us. But not to you Bob, that tells you it's too big a job for Steve Bruce, well done mate, you've done well there.

Agree4 Disagree1

15 Jan 2017 18:36:47
Flackie, It`s not all he has though is it mate!
Everton gave two kids a chance today and bingo both scored.

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Jan 2017 20:05:41
Perhaps he doesn't feel they are ready or to the required level.
I'm not suggesting for one second that gabby deserves a chance, I actually think the exact opposite.

But if in the managers eye he feels that he is a better option than the others, that is why he is there.
Rhm would be given the chance. but feels that he is already made it, and is demanding more a week at his age, than most people earn a year. Thankfully we have a guy who won't be held over a barrel.

I don't have the answers. I don't claim to. But what I won't do, and find when people do laughable, is hang the guy out to dry, blame him for everything, when he is working with players he had no input in signing.

We finally have a manager he runs the whole club to do with the football side. We are on the edge of finally turning the corner after the last five + years, and already people are trying to burn him at the stake!

Why would any new player ever want to sign for villa? We have at least 3 managers a year!
One mistake you get pelters
Everyone rides you unless you can win every game single handed.

The pressure on any new potential signing must be over bearing!
And we can't understand why no one signed yet?
Unless you supported villa, why would you put yourself through it?

Agree2 Disagree0

15 Jan 2017 21:33:36
All that said Flacks, I am in total agreement with you about Bruce, I love the bloke and think he is the man for us without question.
I am just a bit miffed as to why Gabby is playing, and why Bruce will not gamble on more young players, surely they can`t be as bad as Agbonlahor, we are playing with 10 men when he is on the field.
Let`s face facts here, paying 10,15,20mil will not guarantee a gem.
I am convinced we have lost ground in this division simply because we have not been cavalier enough with our team selection, just my thoughts mate.

Agree2 Disagree0

15 Jan 2017 21:58:04
I agree with all you say in that post mate.
But the thing is, Bruce knows this as well, has no alligence to gabby, and sees the younger players. yet still picks him.

That says as bad as gabby is, he is in Bruce's eyes better than the other options.

That's why he was made manager, it's his call. And our job to trust him.

Agree1 Disagree1

15 Jan 2017 22:15:39
Yeh, that's when it becomes a problem.

Gabby is well past his best and it's very baffling that Bruce feels he can make a difference! I still think Bruce is the man to get us up but he needs to act quickly and make those signings happen or its curtains this season. He's had a few months to identify targets and has the financial backing so no excuses. Come on Brucey let's be having you!

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Jan 2017 07:51:34
The whole blame Gabby for everything is a distraction from the real problem, no midfield! Oh its snowing damn it that's Gabby again.

Agree0 Disagree1

19 Jan 2017 19:07:41
Big C Gabby is past it son and by the way still collecting £3 million a year! Enough said ey

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Jan 2017 20:27:33
Without talking silly because of what we've just watched, we do need a minimum of a right back, natural left mid, two centre mids and a striker. Watching McCormack today was frustrating, on the ball he's quality, but whilst his playing next to Gabby who's movement was awful, touch was ridiculous and all round game was just so poor.

we can't expect McCormack to show anything like the form we know his capable of. Signings now, don't sack the manager for god sake and keep the home form!

Believable5 Unbelievable0

15 Jan 2017 00:27:46
Shane from Weatlife/ Ross Mc is a proven champions striker, I agree along side gabby will struggle. I hoped that with ACoNs he would come good and steal the limelight but is struggling. To be fair doesn't get enough chances to get a goal through law of averages. Need creative midfielder to help him out!

Agree1 Disagree1

15 Jan 2017 11:04:05
Yep he had one headed chance yesterday, that was literally it.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jan 2017 23:54:50
Dominated second half possession but not a shot on goal! Can't just rely on Kodja it's barmy stuff

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Jan 2017 09:55:04
Gollini's gone to Atlanta on loan, no option to buy but an option to extend the loan for an extra year - makes sense if Bruce isn't going to play him for now, he will no doubt grow into a brilliant keeper he just needs game time. Sheffield Wednesday have bid for Hourihane, and by the journalist from Barnsley way who was right on the Sam Winnal deal, Barnsley seem to be happy to accept it, around 1 million for a player like him in today market is ridiculous.

Their reporting Villa may look to get a bid in soon but to me 2mil in today's market would still be steal and he fits the bill of what we need, what's the harm in trying? May aswell offer Westwood in the deal as well!

Believable1 Unbelievable0

16 Jan 2017 09:16:47
I stand by what I said in post earlier,
For me Bruce has lost the dressing room if he has to shout at them after every game they play. I know some of them players are rubbish.

Now if reports are true we are after this guy from Watford then that shows he has not got a clue. Why bring in a player who is playing in the African nations?

Every fan is entitled to there opinion and I'm no different so slag me off if it makes you all feel better!

Agree1 Disagree0

13 Jan 2017 09:45:06
Sky sources has said that more than one club have bid for Scott Hogan

Could we be one of them?

Believable1 Unbelievable0

13 Jan 2017 15:00:07
Being reported that we have offered mccormack in the deal for hogan as a loan till the end of the season, though mccormack isn't my favourite player, i hope he declines, he deserves a more high profile club, swap him for tom cairney, what do you reckon? everyone's a winner!

Agree2 Disagree0

13 Jan 2017 18:42:19
It hasn't worked for McCormack, seems a decent bloke and his career has just stalled with us, a swap deal with Cairney AND going for Hogan would be great for us and him, we'll need another striker because I think we've seen the last of Ayew too
