Any of you boys heard the jibba-jabba about our old friends arsenal sending not one but 2 scouts to spy on kieran davies, seems the spuds like the look of him too, like its already been mentioned on here, time for steve round to earn his corn and start dishing out some new contracts double quick lively! like at united, its rare nowadays to have 5 or 6 top quality prospects at the same time, let's not get complacent, walkies, grab hold of wyness at your next meeting and get the ball rolling, its the least you can do fella!

Davis, O'Hare, Doyle-Hayes and Clarke - after that I'm struggling to see the other 2 or 3 top quality prospects your talking about. Suliman and Green are already on lengthy contracts, RHM seems way too injury prone to get anywhere, Blacket Taylor doesn't seem to be on the same level as the rest, Lyden is on a long contract but Bruce doesn't seem to fancy him as much as Doyle-Hayes. Only players we need so sort asap are Davis and O'Hare because their in the spotlight nearly every week, the other have only been exposed to cup games so will be less known. But agree them 4 need new contracts soon, 5 years long with huge buy out clauses, wages go up as and when different clauses are met I. E. they play their first 15 games, we get promoted and they play in over 25% of league games - that sort of thing.

28 Sep 2017 09:34:08
Don't even put a buyout clause in. That's only compulsory in Spain. green has only got 2 years left I think.

28 Sep 2017 10:02:24
You all are forgetting the club isn't being run by "no show Lerner" anymore, it's not like we need the money, granted one of our young Stars getting their heads turned, otherwise can't see anyone leaving as the good Dr will see to that.

28 Sep 2017 12:08:06
But out clause will stop us being forced to sell for cheap tho, some of these lads don't actually support Villa, if one of the big boys come along they will be tempted, if they start handing in transfer requests it ends up in a situation where we don't want to sell, they don't want to be here, so you either sell for less than their value or let them sit on the reserves every week. A huge buy out clause ensures we at least get a good deal.

28 Sep 2017 13:08:26
A buyout clause doesn't mean someone has to pay that figure. It just means if someone hits that figure then u can't reject it. Someone could have a 100m buy out clause but if a team offered 10m it's up to the club to decide if they want to sell. Just don't put a clause in then u can demand what price you want.

28 Sep 2017 13:42:07
I'm afraid to say if a young player wants to leave villa for more money and at a top 4 club he will go simply as!

28 Sep 2017 14:01:03
Cracking points there fellas, i'm just worried that if one of them toodles off, as teenagers, the old chestnut 'the grass is greener on the other side'might come into play;look at lyden, i really rate him, but he seems to be the type of player who needs to play week in, week out, for example, look at mooey at huddersfield, played reserved football at citeh, hit the glass ceiling, goes to the hudders, plays every week, he looks 10 times better, just saying boys, just get them on an improved contract and then its easy street to bat off any enquiries for them unless it suits us.

27 Sep 2017 17:59:26
What a fantastic performance we kept the ball well we was in charge of the game from start to finish fantastic can't praise the players and the manager enough. We are starting to turn the corner now let's hope we can keep this good form up. I will praise Bruce I think his now understanding the Villa way and I am chuffed things are looking better long way to go yet but I am seeing a huge improvement.

Bruce is getting the best out of Adoma and Davis which is helping the clubs promotion charge. The fans as usual brilliant we have a new Chester and Terry song as well real great song sang all game. Marc Albrighton at the game tonight with the fans as well god I miss him. 10 out of 10 delighted perfect performance!

WTW, I said you could do it, there again I did say I wouldent hold my breath HaHa . Nice to see an optimistic post, Flackie might like this one . Keep the good work up . Onwards&Upwards Villaforever.

27 Sep 2017 13:19:28
Hear a few of the top scouts from the premier looking at Davis,
Hope that he gets a 5 yr deal with villa,
We have to expect this and o'hare and Hayes will also have some admirers,
We really need to go up this season to help us keep these young talented players.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Sep 2017 15:20:06
Totally agree mainbob we must hang on to the crop of yongsters that we have coming through. Its the best crop that we have had for a while. At the end of the day they are our future.

27 Sep 2017 16:47:04
He's played a handful of games but even just for what his shown in those games we should be handing him a 5 year deal with a huge, astronomical buy out clause. Easy to get carried away with young players just breaking through but just for the chance he might fulfill the potential we shouldn't let him slip away.

22 Sep 2017 16:57:34
So Mr Bruce finally admits what I've been saying for ages he openly says he was trying not to lose games at Villa rather than trying to win but now we can play 4 4 2 because kodjia is back. So Mr Bruce what about your signings or you still heavily reliant on Roberto Di Matteo signings Jedinak and Jonathan kodjia as you put it not me.

Hogan we brought for millions of pounds been crying out to play in a 2 but he won't do it he will only use a 2 with Kodjia what's that saying about hogan? One win against a team who can't compete financially with hardly anybody and his a genius no no don't work like that.

I am glad he admits finally 4-4-2 is the way forward let's try and win a game. Yes the club was used to losing but we have whole new squad in last 2 seasons not many of his signings apart from Johnstone whos on loan has worked out yet. I still believe we can go up only because this leagues that bad.

Agree5 Disagree19

22 Sep 2017 19:53:39
So for months you find fault with the guy, as in your opinion he has got it all wrong.
He then comes out and holds his hands up, and youbfind fault and another reason to criticise and find fault?

God it’s so painful and boring.

Your life must be so amazing being perfect in every way.

22 Sep 2017 23:07:48
The guys brought rubbish and tactically he is stupid could job Rdm brought him kodjia otherwise we would have to rely on his signing and we all know how good they are how many transfers as he actually got right? Why was he trying not to lose in the 1st place? Neil Warnock Mick McCarthy Steve Bruce all awful managers who can't cut it in the prem but some how they scrabble up in the play offs because this league that bad. Only thing borring is you flackie disagreeing with anybody with a opinion 1 win at Barnsley and you think his Jose Mourinho he should been trying to win from the off. His only gone 4 4 2 because his job depended on it.

23 Sep 2017 08:16:01
You are pathetic. And are everything that is wrong atvare club. It is because of the likes of you that we are in the mess we are.

23 Sep 2017 09:06:30
Flackie I read this an thought exactly the same as what you've replied here, I was so tempted to reply "I thought you was leaving". But that's what he wants, just ignore it, I'm 50/ 59 whether he's got split personality or just completely attention seeking. I just read it and laugh from now on, like a child throwing their toys out the peak kicking and screaming. just ignore it, let it carry on, don't give in because it will just keep doing it again and again.

23 Sep 2017 10:05:10
Just get behind the team,
That's all I want to do,
Sick of all this negativity.

23 Sep 2017 12:32:29
Thank you bob.

23 Sep 2017 12:52:18
2-0 win today.

23 Sep 2017 13:06:17
Another clean sheet, and any win for me!

23 Sep 2017 14:41:32
Well said flackie, chris. This guy will try and turn any banter or argument in his favour. What the hell do we need the bruce for, We got wtw to put everything right, bruce should have listened to him start of the season we would have a 100 per cent win rate.

23 Sep 2017 19:46:08
Lucky Brucie listened to you and played 4-4-2 tonight WTW

it certainly helped us win the game . ! You sir are surely related to Jekyl and Hyde . Either that or mental!

Would love to know where in the stadium you sit so I can come and introduce myself . And congratulate you for the best blogger on here who continues to spout 💩.

23 Sep 2017 20:26:36
I’d love to meet him,
I’d certainly love to congratulate him.

21 Sep 2017 16:06:41
There are big rummors going around that Bruce has lost the dressing room,
When lansbury was took of on Tuesday he told Bruce to piss off by all accounts,
And Whelan gave Bruce the armband and was told to calm down by Bruce,
They had a blazing row and after the game,
Now I don't now if it's true or not I'm just putting it out for debate
I'll leave it to you all to decide,

Agree1 Disagree6

21 Sep 2017 17:12:15
I'm saying BS, they could at least put effort into this crap, Lansbury was injured.

21 Sep 2017 17:59:42
It could well be bull.
Most rummors are just that rummors with no substance,
But there are the occasional ones that need looking more deeply into.

21 Sep 2017 23:12:58
In football you will always upset players especially if you got a big squad like Aston Villa I don't think Bruce has lost the dressing room there might be a few unhappy players but that's because there not playing week in week out! where did this rumour come from?

{Ed033's Note - It doesn't appear to be a rumour, it seems to be a rummor (possibly from Inspector Jacques Clouseau).

22 Sep 2017 10:24:12
If Bruce has lost the dressing room, perhaps someone should tell him - it's down the tunnel on the left .

22 Sep 2017 16:25:05
I’m guessing this rumour started at about 4pm Thursday on a villa forum.
Big big rumour! Lol.

21 Sep 2017 10:26:02
Bjarnsson will turn out ok in the end I think he has energy he needs our support then I belive he will get better at the moment he looks nervous to be honest as fans we are to quick to slate players if they make a mistake his trying and to me that's the main thing. Like Hogan there's quality in there we just need to get behind our players and confidence will grow. UTV.

Agree0 Disagree1

21 Sep 2017 14:59:36
Walkies, man alive, players you slate i'd say are not bad, and players who couldn't hit a barn door with a shotgun you defend! (hogan being the exception-i agree if we play to his strengths he'd not let us down), i must get meself down to specsavers, because i'm not seeming things right by the sounds of it!

22 Sep 2017 11:51:33
I think there's an offer on at the moment as well; buy 1 get 1 free.

22 Sep 2017 18:53:56
Cheers champ!

20 Sep 2017 23:12:07
Very interesting that there are no demands to rid us of SB.
Has he won over the doubters following Tuesdays defeat or have we all come to realise that the Dr will not get rid as the cost would be immense?
I would hazard a guess that he had a clause built into his contract that if he was pushed he got a big lump sum.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Sep 2017 05:41:52
It's a one year rolling contract, would have to pay him for what's left so about 6 months, that's nothing in this day and age.

14 Sep 2017 19:22:26
Anybody heard Aston Villa have contacted St Etienne manager Oscar Garcia for the job? Tic tock Brucie.

Agree6 Disagree4

14 Sep 2017 20:24:10
Apparently the rumour has some substance. Talk is that if villa fail to win on Saturday then Bruce will be out.

14 Sep 2017 20:29:51
Iam going to Barnsley mate let's hope we win and they sack him anyway if not I would take a loss to be rid of Blue nose Bruce.

14 Sep 2017 21:32:31
You would take a loss to get the manager sacked - says it all about you really don't it WTW.

14 Sep 2017 22:10:46
Blimey walkies, you ever thought of working for the samaritans;i think that caring, understanding and helpful nature of yours would shine mate!

14 Sep 2017 23:09:39
Classof82 We are that bad to watch even the great peter withe an shawn teale said bruce should go last home game so are they wrong aswel? Long term I don't want Bruce anywhere near our great club we are already miles behind we can't afford to keep this guy even if he flukes a win because it will just prolong him staying and come on classof82 you can't be happy with what your watching its so borring and negative we have the best players in the league let's blow the league away play 2 upfront and have ago under bruce all you will get is let's try not to lose. Are you happy with what your watching? Sometimes you got to be crawl to be kind. BRUCE OUT!

15 Sep 2017 06:28:43
Right then walkies, any manager worth his salt knows at least a third of games you play in a season will be drosh;either because of injuries, teams using the same tactics and cancelling each other out, bad luck, or even f all luck, so unless your barcelona, madrid, united or citeh your going to put up with it, and just because you play attractive football it doesn't follow you'll win, brentford played us off the park and got a draw, in essence, if teams know each match we're going to go for it, surprise surprise they'll sit back and hit us on the break, set us up so that we're hard to break down, get the team to grind out results as a default position, so its second nature, you get a draw, boring yes, but then teams start thinking twice about playing us, then you can start building on that and start expressing yourself, but you know in your mind that if we get an injury, a sending off or are out-smarted you can just default to grinding a result out, very boring BUT very practical, i'm giving brucey the benefit here, ask yourself this, if you played Barcelona or real, would you set your stall out and play openly to get more than likely battered, or would you try to grind a result out, remember arsenal under george graham, boring boring but they won cups, and the league, later on, they started to play more openly, but playing boring and ugly was not a problem either, i'm probably wrong about this but for the sake of the club why not give him the four games and then let rip if nothing changes, yeah its a risk i suppose, but if we bring another manager in now how long will it take for him to get across his philosophy, i know you've got the camels' but either way there'd be more dramas with changing coaching personnel etc, like Villadaz says, his record isn't too shoddy!, he's still got the dressing room behind him and with a long hard season ahead, the experienced players should come into their own, come on walkies, BELIEVE IN

15 Sep 2017 08:54:40
Classof82, I'm beginning to love you I agree with you fella on all counts great post.

15 Sep 2017 14:23:08
Wow! '82 great post!

15 Sep 2017 15:57:30
Cheers for that boys, i've obviously fluked a bit of common sense between my ears for once in my life, i'm in shock now!, i'm off to lie down in a darkened room and chant some mumbo jumbo to get back to my usual sketchy self! keep the faith chaps, its going to be a roller coaster of a season ahead!
we are the twelth man!

21 Sep 2017 00:56:44
My main problem with Bruce is that he's ruluctant to put two up front. We have quality strikers, don't really understand his reticence. With some of our losses and draws, it goes down to the players. Take the Brentford game. Brentford simply ran around more, worked harder.

We've also got players missing pretty easy chances. Bruce might not have been my first choice, but you can't blame him for a players shot being blocked on the line by his own centre forward. Bruce is mixing experience with youth. He's bought a good defence for both I give him some credit.

14 Sep 2017 16:26:19
Lansbury's red card overturned!

Agree1 Disagree0

13 Sep 2017 15:31:13
It would appear that certain board members are split, doesn't look good.

Agree0 Disagree1

14 Sep 2017 10:05:08
Whys that then?

14 Sep 2017 16:39:46
I think they've started sniffing around other managers, testing the water.

14 Sep 2017 16:53:51
What makes you think that?
