It's amazing when a team doesn't really look that dangerous that we can still give them a goal. What were the centre backs doing? Pretty much end of the game, don't go swinging when he's already crowded out. Hause was no better than Taylor bar one decent attempt at a through ball, actually put us under more pressure more often. Don't bring Albert in against a quick team with 3 at the back, it doesn't suit him. Ref was too desperate to keep game flowing, refused to give free kicks unless they properly took someone out. While he wasn't biased like others seem to be it still doesn't mean it is correct.

Tranfer window been and gone what are our scouts doing what are we paying them to do lap it up in the sun, everything at villa needs changing apart from our owners and maybe manager, the days of martin o'neil's villa are long we will never reach them heights again pushing for a top 4 finish in the prem. wolves have more chance than us, look at there model, they got a top manager from porto who had won titles at porto, and did there research of how his teams play; and backed him with an aim and plan.

whereas villa we just wasted millions on average players apart from a few, and took gambles on loans and players that were too old, we haven't had a game plan at all, and on the playing side what are we, i don't get our style or anything leeds, west brom, norwhich, sheff united, you can see what they are doing and how they want too play, villa haven't had that since oneil when we were a fast counter attacking team with pace and power, and a strong def with laursen, and davies at cb, bouma at lb, luke young at rb and super brad freidel in goal a class back 5 unlike now.

we need to have a plan and a vision of how we want too play which should be copied in reservers and academies, that way then we could see what the managers trying too do and we would buy into it.

Are you sure.

Chris Wilder, in an interview stated, when buying a player the first thing he looks at is character. The players he wants, can not just run for 90 mins +, but want to . Also they desperatly want to win and will bust a gut to do it .
As we saw on Friday, our players suddenly, decided to play that way . But sadly only for the last 10 mins . As has been said time and again, our squad can't do it consistently . Weelan came on and changed the game, simply by looking to move the ball forwards, faster . Problem is he can't do it consistently.
You can't at the moment, criticise Deano, this is not his team . No matter what the do on the training ground, once they cross that line, it's up to the team . I bet if if it was up to Deano, Half of our squad would be gone .
At the moment he has to use what he's got . The player attitude and commitment has to change, not the manager .

At last someone else can see the problem.
I thought I was the only one, Thank you Dave.

Dave it’s not rocket science is it . When you’ve been down to the 3rd Div and back, you’ve seen it all before HaHa .

So Mings has signed. Does anyone know anything about Caen full-back Fred Guilbert as he is rumoured to be next through the door?

Agree0 Disagree0

Were supposed to have been after Hayden from Newcastle. But that now looks unlikely because Samaris’ move to Newcastle from Benfica is off, so now were supposedly in for Samaris. Who would we rather have, Hayden or Samaris?

31 Jan 2019 09:25:55
According to Sky, Mings is on his way to the Midlands this morning to undergo a medical at Villa. If anyone is at a loose end today, could they get over to Bodymoor, stand on the gates and give us live updates.

Looks like Hogan, having a medical at Sheffield United . Why let a competitor have him?

Agree0 Disagree1

As soon as a player signs for villa he automatically seems to become one of the highest paid players in the division - which ultimately leads to a lack of ‘move on’ options when things don’t pan out, unless the player is prepared to take a pay cut, or. a club fighting for promotion (hopefully always similar to us / therefore a rival) are willing to gamble.

Let’s be honest, the mid-low table teams aren’t going to pay £40k per week to one player who can’t take the club beyond its current level. As for lower clubs wanting to survive - the likes of hogan won’t drop to play for Rotherham. That’s my view anyway. Let’s hope he scores the winner for sheff united against Norwich / Leeds and assists us that way hmm.

The form Sharp and Mcgoldrick are in I'm not even sure why they have come in for him or why he is going on loan to bench warm elsewhere.
Regardless who it is to we now have deadwood out which frees space and wages for someone who can actually give us something.
If we get in what we need to constantly win games then it doesn't matter who we loan to. Anyone not in our first team plans won't turn another team into world beaters.

30 Jan 2019 11:50:16
DAVEDEAN - because he is rubbish, if he plays as much for them as he has for us he will restrict their scoring rate - what is he goals per game ratio?

30 Jan 2019 12:34:02
Mort 13, Chris Wilder is t a mug, we will wait and see .

31 Jan 2019 09:24:14
its ok the magic word is MEDICAL. fail.

We have had a loan bid rejected for Fuchs . I thought we was trying to get the average squad age down!

I know it’s already been said but for me we should be concentrating on Rico Henry @ Brentford. Young and quick who doesn’t shy away from a tackle.

Agree0 Disagree0

Fuchs ache!

28 Jan 2019 16:32:45
Maybe Brentford want too much money? While the owners may be willing to cover the lower FFP fines I'm sure they're not looking to push their luck.
If Fuchs on loan was a reasonable option then I'd have been happy, not past it and an upgrade on Taylor to see us through until the summer.

28 Jan 2019 23:11:30
My Mrs is an upgrade on Taylor .

27 Jan 2019 00:55:23
I still believe, with the defence sorted out, we have enough up front to get us firing again . Commanding CH, Left back and we desperately need a defensive midfielder . With Jack back and the other additions, we should the get back on track. Over the last few weeks, we have had our chance, to get back up the top.

With the league being, still quite tightly packed, I think these chances will keep happening . A lot of the teams are much alike, in as much as beating each other . We have get sorted defensively and more savvy in midfield and our attack will see us through.

We as supporters get frustrated, imagine how Deano feels. he's inherited a team off Brucie and appeared to have sorted them out, the injuries to Jack and Axel, put a stop to that . Given the chance and some of his own players in, I reckon Deano will sort it.

The irony is that we're only really being linked with forwards and a midfielder even though we're already top heavy.

22 Jan 2019 23:09:49
Come on deano where the signings, lb, cbs, rb, cdm, striker. there's players out there come on else our season is over.

It's over now as far as promotion challenge is concerned.
I said back on the 7th Jan that we appear to be slow in the transfer market and here we are 2 weeks later with nothing substantial.
Jan transfer window is worse time to rebuild though. Prices are hiked up 'cos everyone knows buyers will be desperate but that's the situation we've got ourselves in (injuries haven't helped, I understand that) .
To be honest I'd stick with what we've got, and go for it in the summer with a re-build. We need to cling on to mid table for now though.
Really don't want to overpay for mediocrity trying to chase promotion when it is highly improbable. Spending big now will hamper us in the summer too.

23 Jan 2019 23:33:41
I can understand the frustration at the lack of signings (so far) and recent performances, but to state that our promotion push is over is pessimistic to say the least. We still have one of the best squads in the division and are more than capable of going on a strong run to make the playoffs.
Let's all get behind the team on Saturday and try and kick start a late push shall we?

24 Jan 2019 18:36:27
Promotion is possible but not likely. We're too far behind. As far as one of the best squads goes. I think our league position tells us this is not the case.
We had a strong run prior to December and moved from 13th to 8th, still outside the playoffs.

24 Jan 2019 21:53:06
Spot on johnny, my sentiments exactly.

25 Jan 2019 18:03:14
League position reflects who's accumalted most points, not always who has the better squad. I and most of the managers in the championship think Villa have a very strong squad compared to most, we just aren't playing to our potential. Teams like Leeds and Norwich are over achieving and fair play to them, it's exactly what Cardiff did last year. We just need to hope Smith can get them firing.
If we win tomorrow we'll be four points off the play offs. Personally I don't see that as being too far off to mount a challenge but fair enough if you do.
My glass will remain half full and I'm looking forward to cheering on the team tomorrow.

21 Jan 2019 12:06:45
Assuming the rumour is correct, should we sell Kodjia to Angers and for what price or do we keep him as Tammy will almost certainly not be with us next season?

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jan 2019 15:46:10
Yes oldvillan I think we should sell him, Kodjia does have his moments, and can at times change a game, problem is he is not a team player.
I think he is a bit erratic at times and would be a much better player if he looked up occasionally to see where he is going, and spot his team mates movements.
Sell and invest in a quality attacking midfielder, reason being we are very ordinary when Jack is out.

21 Jan 2019 17:02:24
I'd agree with the post from Villadave. Kodjia can look like a world beater at times, the trouble is that those times are far too rare. His ability to conjure something out of nothing is far outweighed by his lack of composure, the way he often delays a pass or a move breaks down because of him not being in sync with others. To be fair he has been played out of position this season though. He's still got a decent record, decent market value and certainly wish him well after helping us out, but time to move on and get a bit more value for money. easier said than done I know in January though. Same could be said of Bolasie too. must be well over £100k a week between them so let's free up some space in our squad, develop Green and get maybe another in to make a bit more of a consistent contribution.

22 Jan 2019 10:36:33
The problem now is if we do sell him we will have less than a week to replace him and could end up not bringing anyone in due the lack of time left.
With Bolasie now gone back to Everton it looks like Green will be expected to fill the gap. Maybe by shifting 70k a week off our payroll will release some money for investment. We need it!
We have got ourselves into a proper mess over the past 4 - 5 weeks, probably since the Albion game to be honest. Before that game we were looking forward to a transfer window that would enable us to push for promotion. Since then however we have conceded an average 2+ goals a game at home (not even counting the 5 we conceded to Forest! ), not won at home since we beat blues (2 months ago! ) .
We are now looking at teams below us (not above us) and the transfer window is becoming one of short term fix (again! ) to get us to the end of the season.
I'm not blaming the current management team but after the initial 'honeymoon' period we have been woeful. Grealish's absence has been a factor, probably more than anyone would have thought. Add to that Tuanzebe's injury, which has also been a factor.
Best we can hope for this season is upper mid-table.
We need some rabbits pulled out of hats over the next week or so that's for sure.
