Just got back from derby and before everybody goes over the top I think we played well we just lack a striker. We do need to stop gifting teams goals but overall I think we was ok let's not be silly and say Bruce out or sell this player if we had Kodjia today we would of won we are a playoff team end of. Spare a thought for Birmingham City hahaha UTV On to the next one!

Can somebody explain the financial fair play rules to me? Because I thought you can only spend what you generate so we sell Amavi for 10 million now apparently we have no funds at all and can only rely on loans.

Am I missing something here? Also how long does this FFP last? are we going to be broke next season as well if we don't go up?

There are other things than just the transfer fee.
Wages, agents etc.
Although a player is on loan, still a fee is involved.
Then running costs, bad debt, from previous regimes.

Stop looking at the neighbours, this will catch them out as well. the first year after a takeover is a free reign. its the second year itch.

I would still take our squad above any other in this league. A cold winter, with many games will pull the men away from the boys. Remember, it’s a marathon not a sprint.

I do completely agree with you Flackie I just wondered how long will this carry on does it reset itself after a bit or are we stuck now like this for the foreseeable until we raise money from somewhere? Off to Derby tomorrow I will be honest I will take a draw now they are a good side at home and yet again we have injurys. UTV.

It is what it is, and we have what we have.

Ollie McBurnie has just announced he's joining Villa, other than he's a youth player for Swansea, anyone got a clue about him?

Believable0 Unbelievable0

13 Dec 2017 20:06:56
Scored 8 goals his whole career, 5 in non league and 3 in league 2, doesn’t sound promising.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Dec 2017 07:20:07
Chris, is there a link to where he says he's joining Villa?

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Dec 2017 12:48:33
Someone wrote to him on his Instagram “join the villa”, he replied “I am”. Pictures are everywhere, started following half the team last night on twitter as well.

Is this the best striker Bruce can find?
God help us all if these rummors are true.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Dec 2017 08:38:40
It's called cover.

15 Dec 2017 08:44:53
MainBob I don't think we should knock him until we have seen him. As fans this is sometimes our problem I believe we should give the lad a chance.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Dec 2017 09:01:31
We have young players in the under 21s who need to be given a chance as well,
O'hare/ hayes/ mckirdey/ clark/ sulaman
Is this kid mcburnie any better than what we have got now?
We need a experienced striker on loan to give Davis a helping hand in my opinion.

Aston Villa is interested in signing Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths permanently in the January transfer window.

He would be a good signing, and apparently he fits the bill.

We've already got 1 pisshead sweaty mate?

Do you think Aston Villa could get Benteke back on loan? I say let's push for it do a march or a petition.

Believable0 Unbelievable2

12 Dec 2017 11:28:31
I hope your joking about the March or petition, you wanna give your head a wobble.

Agree2 Disagree0

12 Dec 2017 13:33:29
Not a cat in hells chance that bentike would return,
We are clutching at straws there,
With our ffp in dire straits we have to tread very carefully.

Agree1 Disagree0

12 Dec 2017 15:38:10
Benteke is not the player he used to be or was for us, he is a good player yes but needs to be loved, he can sulk and drift in and out of games if things are not going well.
I am not sure that is the type of player we need right now, we need a Andy Lockhead / Andy Gray type player.

Agree1 Disagree0

12 Dec 2017 16:27:09
Lol yes Chris I was joking but I would love Benteke and I think he would come back. All the talk of no funds where the 10 million Amavi money gone?

Agree0 Disagree1

12 Dec 2017 17:11:43
I agree Dave, he’s been shocking since he left. I’d still have him back in a second tho, he’s a confidence player, we obviously made him feel like the main man so he played like it. He’d drag us to promotion but can’t see it in a million years.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Dec 2017 19:58:47
More chance of finding grass in The North Pole than Benteke coming back.

What sort of Grass you on about villaDaz?

Write my View on the game today, personally I thought it was the worst performance of the season but more importantly we didn't lose and that's got to say something when you play terrible. In the championship you will have good days and bad days it doesn't matter who you play.

I would say I think we lack a goal threat not just strikers but I believe we need to get more players in the box as a team. All in all Iam still happy with where we are in the league considering injurys but let's not take nothing away from Millwall today they deserved at least a point MOTM Sam Johnstone fantastic.

Onomah needs to be in the box more he doesn't set up or score enough if his talking about going back to spurs he needs to up his game. Xmas period will let us know more but I still think we are a playoff team. Looking forward to Derby tho UTV.

Who should Villa sell in January to get funds for new players? Hogan and Lansbury and Gabby all back Elphick and Richards don't do much so we could let go or would anybody cash in on Davis or Grelish you decide.

Believable0 Unbelievable1

09 Dec 2017 10:40:29
How much do you think we’d get for a striker who has 2 goals in about 15 games and a midfielder who’s played less than 90 minutes all season? I’d say 50p and a mars bar.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Dec 2017 22:55:16
I would say judging by today I would say 50p the lot no mate. Did you see the Millwall fans taking videos at 10am claiming the took the holte.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Dec 2017 11:06:35
Aston Villa has just made a loan deal for Swansea striker Oli McBurnie, who will join the squad in January.

Believable0 Unbelievable1

With the odds stacked against us signing Sam Johnston on a permanent basis because of FFP and Man United looking to add another year to his contract thus meaning they will want a substantial transfer fee who would you want as our NO 1? I personally would like Stock Dale any thoughts?

Believable0 Unbelievable1

05 Dec 2017 22:49:06
He will be a long term villa player.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Dec 2017 07:01:46
You would want the blues keeper as permanent number 1? Ok. Leave Sam till the the summer, he’s contracted here till then anyway, then look to buy him, with 12 months left on his contract they won’t be asking for anything ridiculous, simple.

Agree2 Disagree0

06 Dec 2017 12:43:31
Hope your right Flacks and Chris as we haven't had a decent No1 for ages and I personally rate Johnstone as a future England No1 if not then I think Stockdale would be a great choice and I'm hearing rumours also that Stockdale not happy at Blues this is coming from Lee Carsleys cousin don't shoot the messenger though if all else fails get your nipper between the sticks Flacks 😊😊.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Dec 2017 13:43:05
He would do better than some we have had over the years!

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Dec 2017 14:54:43
Would Shane Long be a good fit?
Scores frequently every where that he has played.
Could possibly buy him if we shift some of the non appearing players.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

03 Dec 2017 17:10:05
Shane Long still has a house in, I believe the Sutton area. A mate of mine fully decorated it in the summer as they thought he was heading back to the Midlands in last transfer window. Perhaps it will now hapeen.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Dec 2017 17:30:09
Like Hogan, he might not fit the system.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Dec 2017 15:55:52
Shane Long is £20M striker all day long, I'd swap him for Kodjia in a heartbeat

UTV.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Dec 2017 18:52:43
I wouldn't say he scores frequently. He scores 0.2 goals a game in his career. But yes he's a decent player and works hard. Wouldn't swap him for kodjia and if we ever paid more than 8m for him I'd feel robbed.

Agree1 Disagree0

04 Dec 2017 21:07:26
I wouldn’t swap him for Kodjia because he’s not the right style of striker an it would be a waste of time.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Dec 2017 15:55:19
I didn't mean literally swap him lol, I'd rather him than Kodjia in as much as he's a team player and not a selfish player, selfish worked for Shearer and works for Kane, Kodjia ain't nowhere near their standard. As an aside, didn't Bruce sign Long for Hull? So he fancies Long, not literally again lol?

UTV.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Dec 2017 18:05:38
Yes he did.
How about Long for Hogan+++.
