Hi guys, my son told me last night that he had heard that there is interest from a prem club that Hourihane was a target.
Any info on this?
Bruce confirmed Amavi will be gone and Baccuna is on his way.

10 Aug 2017 11:23:04
Have not heard any news about hourihane,
The other 2 will be gone,

10 Aug 2017 11:28:53
Why do I get the feeling Peter crouch is coming back to villa?

10 Aug 2017 11:38:46
Actually, Bruce have been looking to sign Rhodes again, and I hope it will happen.

10 Aug 2017 11:47:31
The Dr says Rhodes is a no go!

10 Aug 2017 11:49:48
Gone quite about elfick and Gardner!

10 Aug 2017 11:50:21
Hourihane would be lucky if Solihull moors were interested in him after last nights performance, found it weird Bruce brought him yet has benched him so often but after last night I can see why, his set pieces are his only positive at the moment. As for Rhodes Bruce and Tony confirmed last night that any talk of Rhodes and Snodgrass are completely false up to now as neither have been identified as targets.

11 Aug 2017 23:13:15
Are you admiting Bruce brought wrong with hourihane then? See the thing is at barnsley he was setting up and scoring goals for fun i put it to you that Bruce is actually not getting the best out of him.

12 Aug 2017 12:15:08
But how do you get the best out of him? You can't blame Bruce for everything it's getting embarrassing WTW, next you'll say he's responsible for global warming. Against Watford in the friendly he played him behind the striker in the number 10, he was woeful. Tried him in a midfield 3 and he does nothing, him and Lansbury don't seem to work as a 2. I think that's why we've signed Onomah, reminded me of the snake in the cup, calm on the ball, carries it well and picks his passes. Hourihanes only saving grace so far is his set pieces, although probably a couple of times last season hourihane really did look like the player we thought we was getting, but his hit and miss, hopefully just needs time to settle.

12 Aug 2017 12:26:08
Bruce buys players like hourinane who are playing well. Sometimes it doesn't work out. Look at de bruye or salah. For what ever reason players struggle at some clubs.

10 Aug 2017 09:51:25
Rumour is that the Amavi deal is close to being finalised, all that it's left is the medical. Marseille will loan the player with the option to buy for a total of £9 million.

Another rumour is that we can finally get rid of Bacuna. Reading-manager Jaap Stam has apparently reignited his interest in signing him. But Aston Villa is waiting for an improved offer.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Aug 2017 10:35:14
Shame stam can't take Richards as Well?
Pleased to see bacuna go he is useless in my book,
Amavi I hope does well,
Great going forward but defense is not his strongest point,
But he has a good character.

10 Aug 2017 11:48:27
Amavi is officially a Marsille-player now. The loan deal is finalised with a view of permanent signing.

10 Aug 2017 11:53:31
Bacuna very useful in the squad and good midfielder on his day, never going to succeed here however especially after that reaction on Saturday, booing your own player half way through a game because he's had a bad game - embarrassing, and also the reason it's going to be 100x harder for us to get anywhere, when the fans are so eager for you to fail so they can moan and boo, how can you expect the players to perform. Poisonous.

09 Aug 2017 12:02:21
We are operating very closely to financial fair play rules this season. As anybody thought if we don't go up this season how the club will operate next season? We could lose our big players from the teams coming down because they have much more financial power and we will have only a small amount of parachute money left. Already this season Steve Bruce as use the phrase box clever to get players in. And the real reason we have all these old players is there cheap. We better hope JT and Samba don't retire or we won't have any cbks at the club. You see all the money wasted on the players eg RDM and Steve Bruce has come back to haunt us. All of this will be down to Tony Xia for poor choosing of managers which leads to poor recruitment. His personal wealth won't come into it so Villa fans say what you like its this season or never because of financial fair play rules.

Agree3 Disagree8

09 Aug 2017 12:57:35
I raised this point when baker left that if we don't go up we need to hope samba and it don't retire and that they are still able to cut it physically, by the end of this season the money spent when garde was in charge becomes not an issue as it's outside the 3 years the ffp refers to, we will then have funds available.

09 Aug 2017 13:33:34
remi garde didn't buy a player mate. Bruce and Rdm spent 80 million between them i read somewhere today its crazy money.

09 Aug 2017 14:07:16
Thanks for stating the obvious that everyone already knew mate, really ground breaking stuff. Nothing to do with Tony tho, he backs his managers can't ask anymore, stop talking crap.

09 Aug 2017 14:38:33
Do you not understand it is a chain if Dr Tony pick the wrong manager then the manager recruit poor players and the players play poorly. You could give coco the Clown money doesn't mean your a good chairman i would rather him pick the right manager 1st. now because of his mistakes the club could be here for good because of FFP rules. you try getting 10 million back for Ross McCormack or 15 million for Hogan it won't happen he picks poor managers then that manager wastes his money.

09 Aug 2017 15:47:27
we need a 100 million sponsor to come in for something off one of Tonys mates that's how city and the likes of psg get round it when it was tighter on them.

09 Aug 2017 16:01:15
Do you ever stop?

The club have stated that they are building 3 teams

One for promotion out of the championship
One to stay in the premier league
And the third to kick on once we have secured premier league status

Championship clubs can lose a maximum of 13million in one season . But don't forget we have parachute payments

Premier league clubs can lose 105 million over 3 years but this is also dependant on new TV deals and also promotion payment for getting back to the premier league .

For once just stop moaning about everything villa related . Tony Xia is a young man who had made millions out of business ventures he is no ones fool so trust the man to come good and stop moaning.

09 Aug 2017 16:01:31
It's not the dr's fault. He's come from China, not knowing the game, appointed a manager who had won the champions league, didn't work out so rightly got rid. Appointed the most successful championship manager ever who months before was linked with the England job. No-one on here was moaning when we bought McCormack. He also has a proven record. Hogan was doing well when we bought him. I still think Hogan will cone good. He looks sharp. Just needs a goal. We have to get behind bruce. History shows he knows how to get out of this league. Admittedly I disagree with a few of his decisions like starting bacuna when hourihane is on the bench! But what manager would everyone agree with 100% of the time? As for FFP there is one thing that worries me slightly. I read somewhere that if an owner pays out of their own money, no the club revenue, it doesn't affect FFP. So maybe Tony isn't as rich as we think. Or maybe he doesn't want to plough his own person fortune into players which is fair enough. Predicting Bruce to play a strong side tonight to get a win and a bit of confidence. Also I hope he does as I only need villa and Leeds in an acca for £158. Haha. UTV.

09 Aug 2017 19:51:28
Walkthewalk shut up.
You whinge that our chairman spent money. He backs the managers like a great chairman he is. If he didn't back them you soon start wanting him out aswell.
And you keep going on about bad managers Bruce is a proven manager in this league. Who would you pick mr expert I love to know.

09 Aug 2017 20:14:12
My apologies I meant the garde season so sherwoods buys.

05 Aug 2017 08:29:05
Morning of the game Iam off to the holte suite later for a few drinks an a cheeky pie my Prediction 1.0 Villa John Terry 1st goal for the club.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Aug 2017 10:38:08
I also think 1-0 to villa
Got Hogan to get us going hopefully!
But being on sky live is my biggest worry.
Our win record is truly disgusting!

05 Aug 2017 11:04:04
2-0, first half goal, sit back defend then score one late on. COME ON THE VILLA!

05 Aug 2017 11:16:11
2-1 to Villa, Hogan and Terry that's 3 points for us.

04 Aug 2017 07:52:00
Hugo rodallega by the looks of us on his way, liked him a few years back and thought we should of got him then.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Aug 2017 09:08:30
You playing football manager 2010?

04 Aug 2017 09:59:54

04 Aug 2017 10:10:10
It's popped up on a few of the places I get my villa news from. mostly reliable and was convincing that it was close.

Cissokho has made a permanent switch to the Turkish Super League club Yeni Malatyaspor. The fee is believed to be in the region of £1,3 million.

I think that it is not that bad of a fee since Aston Villa paid £2,4 million for him. That is one player offloaded.

Agree1 Disagree0

03 Aug 2017 10:02:51
I can't believe someone paid money for him, fantastic business for us if the fee is accurate.

03 Aug 2017 10:32:48
Good business getting any money for him and his wages off the books, if amavi is sold now we'd need to sign another left back.

03 Aug 2017 11:05:03
lol Ashley cole anyone?!

03 Aug 2017 11:16:36
aww Flackie surely your not on about nicking him from under Birmingham Citys nose? like we would do that right lol.

02 Aug 2017 11:27:39
Bruce said the weekend he was looking to have Jack as a main stay in the team and really have the team play around him and build them around how to get the best out of him. Makes sense because Bruce has started using formations with a number 10 role which he didn't at all last year and weirdly enough after 3 years Jacks numbers changed to the number 10.

Read today it could be 6 months out with him, but his dad has said 2 or 3, hope its the latter. Should be able to keep fit as well given it's a kidney injury he should be able to do lots of lightweight stuff.

Agree1 Disagree0

02 Aug 2017 01:24:18
Abel Hernandez to villa all over twitter tonight, set to have a medical today. Thoughts?

Agree0 Disagree2

02 Aug 2017 09:20:12
Lewis not going to happen,
For one we are to near ffp to spend that type of money and 2nd the Dr has rubbished the talk,

02 Aug 2017 09:21:25
If true, a good signing but we need to start offloading some players.

02 Aug 2017 11:23:26
Not happening unfortunately the good dr has tweeted.

02 Aug 2017 11:53:18
Unfortunately? He wanted 100k to play for us didn't he? Only in it for the money if that's true, not to mention the forwards we already have and the youth players to back them up, I'd say it would be better invested elsewhere in the squad if we had that sort of money and if it had any chance of happening which it doesn't die to ffp and the dr saying it's a no go.

03 Aug 2017 11:29:35
We have enough in the squad already, we really need to get rid of some. the cissoko deal was a good one, just need mcshortface and richards to go the same way. We have enough tallent in some of our youngsters to fill any gaps that may appear. Ican, t wait for it all to kick off at the weekend. VILLA FOREVER!

31 Jul 2017 00:25:27
Grelish out for two to three months after bleed on kidney his had a op and is gutted. Get well soon Super Jack!

Agree1 Disagree0

31 Jul 2017 18:38:06
Gutted for grealish, thoughtvhe played really well untill he had to go off. Out for two or three months is a blow for us and jack himself.

28 Jul 2017 14:25:09
Nahki Wells said to be on Villa's radar with Steve Bruce an admirer. The 27 year old Bermuda international is out of contract at Huddersfield end of the 2017/ 18 season and David Wagner is ready to offload the talented striker.

Agree0 Disagree3
