According to reports Bruce is looking at McBurnie from Swansea on a loan deal.
Is he worth it or should we be looking at proven strikers who regularly appear on the score sheets when they get a game.
Now I don't trawl through the team sheets etc of other clubs but are a lot of players that merely keep a seat on the bench reserved for them.

Unlikely to get them but the likes of Austin, and Murray should be on the radar.
However Gayle could be a target.
We need the poacher that will fit in with our "style" of play.
Hogan seems lost in our ranks as we don't play to his, big John does what he wants ànd Gayle, Austin and Murray could be a fit.

Let us not get another no name that merely gets on the pitch.
We are all aware thar "fair play" comes into play but surely as we are now looking reasonable we could entice aa recognised player to join us?

Bit weird you said look at players that “merely keep a seat on the bench” and then go on to name 3 players that all started and scored in the premier league this weekend.

04 Dec 2017 10:17:33
The 3 names don't merly get on the pitch they play.
The post said "not merely sit on the bench."
McBurnie sits on the bench, sometimes.
We need scorers that get at least a goal in every two games they play.
A simple add on, Palace look doomed and Benteke is not doing anything. Would we take him back should the opportunity arise? Fair play or fee could prove a stumbling block.

05 Dec 2017 17:43:55
We brought in 3 proven strikers last year, one is in Aus and 2 are out for most the season.

Talented younger players on the way up is what we should look at.

The Championship has changed. Teams with young dynamic players and managers are doing very well.

02 Dec 2017 13:33:57
My view on the Leeds game; 1st of all didn't we make a cauldron of noise we out sang Leeds but had a great day in Leeds b4 hand. So anyway 1st half I wouldn't say we was poor just sloppy and a bit tired. But 2nd half wow didn't we do well. Chuffed for Lansbury showed great attitude and him and Grelish was great. Samba prob could of done better for the goal but still played ok. UTV on to the next 1.

Just a few names that have been mentioned on various 'rumours' sites for discussion.
Rob Holding (Arsenal)
James Wilson (Man U)
Connor Wickham (Palace)
Personally I'd take all 3?


{Ed001's Note - if Wilson has recovered from his ACL injury, he would be a fantastic signing. Problem is that it can take years to fully recover from those injuries.}

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Dec 2017 11:21:59
I've read it that he's got 5 goals in 5 games for the Man U U23's, with Ibrahimovic back he's not going to get near a 1st team start, I didn't know about the injury tbh, but I don't know if this is true, we had a shot at buying Falcao from River Plate not long after he had a similar injury for £2M, we got Heskey in instead, sums Villa up don't it lol?


{Ed001's Note - it is a waste of talent for him to be playing in the U23s. Falcao didn't suffer his ACL injury until a long time later mate. He was playing in Europe when it went. What a player he was and it took him 3 years to get back to anything like his best, but he was much older when he did his.}

03 Dec 2017 12:00:42
Holding would be decent, when he’s played for Arsenal 90% of the time he makes the centre halves around him look like the inexperienced ones. Can’t see that happening tho as I’m sure they’ve only got 4 centrebacks and they got tore a new one yesterday. I remover Wilson doing well at Brighton didn’t know he’d done his ACL. Wickham would fit right in, we set up for a big man who can hold it up and wait for players to get around them.

{Ed001's Note - it was Wilson doing his ACL that started the chain of events that led to Rashford getting a shot. Though it was meant to be Ashley Fletcher, he had to pull out at the last minute, Rashford was drafted in and the rest, as they say, is history.}

03 Dec 2017 13:30:28
What about Origi from Liverpool on loan until the end of the season?

He needs games to put himself into contention for bBelgium and also to put himself into the shop window too.

{Ed001's Note - he is on loan with Wolfsburg.}

03 Dec 2017 17:36:40
Hasn’t thought of Wickham till he was mentioned, would be good at this level. Solanke would be excellent but he gets minutes occasionally for Liverpool. Ings is a quality striker but if hogan can’t get a sniff in our system, be hard to see Ings doing well. We spread goals around the team and play best when we have a forward who plays with their back to goal, give the centre halves something to think about and hold it up until others get around them. But Leeds exposed that as they bullied Davis and then we couldn’t get up the pitch. Hopefully when (not if) we go up we get benteke back, really kept us up alone for 3 seasons, can play the big man with back to goal but just as good with it on the deck running at and in behind a back line.

04 Dec 2017 09:13:31
I obviously was watching a different game chris, Davis led the line well it was josh and the midfield who failed to support the striker for the first half.

04 Dec 2017 21:08:48
You must of been mate, Davis won probably 20% of duels and got bullied left right and centre.

30 Nov 2017 17:12:40
I must say I never liked Bruce at 1st but I have really warmed to him now. The Injurys have hit us hard but he hasn't moaned we havent got much money but again he hasn't moaned and he is still getting results yes its a poor league but his doing a great job.

On to the game I think everybody would take a draw now its going to be tough i expect us to get beat if I am honest but I fully expect us to bounce back against millwall. Bruce said we are looking at loans in January what happened to the Amavi money? I think we will still go up but Iam thinking more playoffs than 2 due to injurys.

Blow me down with a feather nice to see WTW all aboard the party bus enjoy the ride.

01 Dec 2017 00:05:23
Daz, Walkies is a changed person . After all the. Times, he's been hit over the head on here, it's started to sink in HaHa A bit like when you get a new puppy . Onwards&Upwards Villaforever.

01 Dec 2017 06:22:39
Now that walkies is 'educated', this means all that's left is for reports of lord lucan being seen riding shergar on the moon! and if i see four figures on horseback in the distance, me and my shirley crabtree physique are out of here!

01 Dec 2017 13:20:34
Havnt always seen eye to eye walkies but that was a worthy post mate. This game tonight is a tough one and with our injuries it could be tough over our next few games.

03 Dec 2017 14:51:01
So dear walkies has now been indoctrinated into the hall of "agree with me" or be hammered.
I thought that this was an even handed site that accepted freedom of speech.

28 Nov 2017 14:45:44
Teeth like a bag of chips, never just one swear word passes his lips, physique like a coach driver with dodgy hips, charlie adams, charlie adams-yes boys and girls, we may be giving a home to another stray from one of our distant, yet to evolve, country cousins!

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Nov 2017 18:00:27
Shoulda got him 2 years ago 82, need a bit more steel in that midfield 👍🏻


28 Nov 2017 20:38:43
Yes maybe 2 years ago, not now.

29 Nov 2017 05:32:09
Your right there Ally, seems the jedi won't be able to play 2 to 3 games week in week out, and whelan will struggle too, the younger players all seem to get injuries (niggles) on a regular basis, so maybe bringing in an experienced player may be a good idea, if not charlie adams then another senior player who knows through experience that its a grind till the end of the season, and knows when to push hard, and when to ease off, so as not to pick up an injury or two, also heard mark hughes likes grealish, so maybe loaning him to stoke for game time and experience might suit both of us as well, i just hope brucey doesn't go all left-field and look to bring in berahino on loan (whispers ahoy and all that! )

30 Nov 2017 05:18:51
Good call 82, that'd be good all round 👍🏻


26 Nov 2017 20:50:29
What a fantastic performance against a tough Ipswich side. My dreams of an automatic promotion are back on, but we have a real test against Leeds United hopefully we can get at least a point out th game. Albert adomah was fantastic again but Glenn Whelan and Davis was super aswel really playing well but we must keep it up hard work starts over xmas there's a lot of points to be won we need to use the squad more. UTV.

Agree1 Disagree1

27 Nov 2017 00:17:02
Walkies for the first time ever, I agree with everything you have said . Albert is one on his own, Weelen had his best game for us and for his age Davis is outstanding . The way he holds that line on his own, is mature beyond his years . Start adding a few goals, for the compleat package . Leeds won't be looking forwards to playing us, as the home team the pressure will be on them . With the confidence we have gained over the last few games, We should give them a good game and come away with something . But we need to be up for it and at our best . So roll on Friday Onwards& Upwards Villaforever.

28 Nov 2017 07:26:26
Next we will be going for a pint before the game lol.

23 Nov 2017 22:05:23
Anybody heard the rumours about Ross Mcormack being suspended in Austraila? don't know if its true but doesn't sound like a successful loan spell to me. He wasnt any good at Forrest either. I can't understand this guy. UTV Thanx again to the edds aswel they do such a great job.

Agree0 Disagree1

23 Nov 2017 22:22:53

23 Nov 2017 23:43:23
Walkies iv heard that flabby Mc is advised by, flabby Gabby, take the money and do as little as possible . Onwards&Upwards Villaforever.

24 Nov 2017 01:18:06
Claim totally denied by the Aussie manager. He called it "BS" press.

24 Nov 2017 10:10:36
He just scored his 3rd free kick so don’t think he’s suspended.

24 Nov 2017 11:44:45
Quite correct about McCormack
He scored another free kick today,

25 Nov 2017 07:21:58
sorry i stand corrected only going off newspaper reports.

22 Nov 2017 07:47:16
1st of all we were poor last night we looked tired and jaded and sloppy at times. we actually won the game in 1st gear. Delighted with the win though. signs of a good side when you win playing poor. If your not going to play lansbury or bjarnsson, list them so we have money for other players because we need help.

Kodjia is out for months, he needs another op. Bruce said Hogans out for months as well so leaves us with nothing upfront. Davis is a young lad trying, but hasn't got that killer goal threat yet. i think he will, but we are a side in desperate need for help, it could stop us going up.

Agree0 Disagree4

22 Nov 2017 09:26:36
The only excitement with Kodjia/ Hogan being out is the soap opera on here about who we should get in to replace them, early marker for me, Dwight Gayle, worth a punt, bring on the Meldrewing 👴🏻


22 Nov 2017 12:47:33
At least we don’t have to listen to people saying Real Madrid and Bayern want Kodjia all January. I think we should go for Ulloa from Leicester, isn’t getting in the team so let’s see if we can get him on loan for six months, promise of first team football. Similar situation with Charlie Austin unless he’s injured? Danny Ings seems to be fit again, plenty of options out there. If we’ve got a bit of money and not looking at loans then let’s look at Hugil, Bobby Reid, Jarrod Bowen - all lads who are scoring consistently in this league at the minute.

22 Nov 2017 14:08:18
Have to agree chris, a good shout.

22 Nov 2017 14:50:49

22 Nov 2017 16:23:07
Any or 2 of your 1st 3 Chris 👍🏻


22 Nov 2017 16:55:57
Ally-when you said dwight gayle is worth a punt, i'm guessing you misspelled punt, as for who to bring in, hugill defo-he reads the game really well, reminds me of teddy sheringham, and i'd try and nab ollie watkins from brentford, he's class, young, technically very good, and most important for me, modest and down to earth, the result will be brucie going for musa from leicester!

22 Nov 2017 17:25:05
Musa would be an incredible signing - I think we have zero chance of signing him however - I like the suggestion of Bowen and Hugill although I fear we may be priced out of both moves.

22 Nov 2017 18:58:20
From what's been said about finances, it's probably going to be loans, the 2 lads in the Championship would definitely have to be buys, don't think we've got the dosh to buy outright, get rid of some deadwood and we might? and while we're on it 82, does your name have a silent C&L.? 😘


22 Nov 2017 19:36:27
I live in Leicester, and the talk here is he is coming in jan, loan to end of season, I’m not sure he is what we need.

22 Nov 2017 20:01:47
Ally-you know it! lol.

22 Nov 2017 20:03:53
Heard that too Flackie, only downside is someone told me he'd prefer to stay in the prem, but as always, time will tell.

22 Nov 2017 20:34:02
A loan would put Ulloa in the shop window for a move that he wants, he's at that age where he's got 1 more biggish contract to sign before he retires, would like to think he'd play out of his skin for a few months to get that contract in the future, not saying long term for us, but could be useful till the end of the season?


22 Nov 2017 22:45:57
I think there talking about Musa Ally, thing is if Hogan can’t perform in our team, while Musa has more quality their very similar players so would he be worth it? I’d rather ulloa. We need someone to lead the line when Davis is injured or knackered so we don’t see wingers playing striker like the last 20 yesterday.

23 Nov 2017 07:53:02
I think I can see a time in December when we have to play 3 games in 6 days where we may well start with Samba and Jedinak up front. It’s a worry for sure. I’m fairly certain that if McCormak was still at the club he would be starting for most of next month. Shame!

23 Nov 2017 09:16:04
McCormack would be starting for most of next month if he was here? That’s sounds similar to 2 + 2 is 6352.

23 Nov 2017 18:47:59
We are never that bad to play that useless Pratt. Even creating trouble in Australia now.

23 Nov 2017 21:57:27
I would actually go for Peter Crouch Johnstone and get another cbk and lbk if the money stretches that far. We need more options. Also has anybody notice we play counter attack every game it works aswell. Playoffs here we come its gona be a nervy ride. Hopfully by the time the playoffs start Kodjia will be back.

23 Nov 2017 22:01:13
yea great shouts chris.

24 Nov 2017 10:52:39
We will see Chris, once December comes, and through a tough Christmas. If we have no other options, I’d have started McCormack even if his sole motivation was to prove people wrong and to try and place himself in the shop window. Then sell in January and re invest the cash.

21 Nov 2017 16:54:59
Just a rumour,
Villa have been contacted by Shamrock Rovers for Kevin Toner.
Shamrock have held talks about a possible deal for the 21-year-old defender.
He is currently on a season-long loan with Stevenage.
And his contract is up at Villa Park at the end of the season.

Agree1 Disagree0

21 Nov 2017 23:30:47
Barely makes the Stevenage team and was awful both loan spells he had last term, get rid.

22 Nov 2017 20:36:39
Could be left back cover though? Would like to see Borg given a try though
