Putting a squad together to challenge for promotion is not an easy task for any manager, however putting a squad together when you've not even had one full transfer window is impossible.

If you don't give Smith the time to build his own team how can he possibly succeed? How is he to realise his potential when idiots call for his head before letting him build a team.

Foolish fans who expect instant results are deluded, gone are the days of being able to pump millions into the club to put a team together in less than one window.
I say, get real and give the man a chance and ignore the comments of the impatient.

Except he works as a coach, not a manager. He has openly said that while he may provide general input to what the squad requires, he doesn't like to be involved in anything further.
His only real requirement seems to be a willingness to learn and adapt which is all well and good but ability is necessary.
The problem for us is that we will be priced out of moves for genuinely good players due to being Villa which leaves us paying over the odds for average players. The majority of these players either know they are at their pinnacle with us so happy to pick up their top wages and stop trying or are using us as a stepping stone to the EPL and are arrogant and selfish.

Seen a rumour going around that Villa have already lined up another loan deal with Chelsea for an Abraham replacement, Hence terry's visit.

Any thoughts.

1.) 05 Jan 2019 17:39:17
Honestly? Couldn’t care less. We’ve become such a mess now. Relying on loans is a quick fix and really don’t want to see another one turn up only to leave at the end of the season.
Sick and tired of excuses from the club now. Guaranteed 4 seasons in the Chumpionship and probably another few after that.

2.) 06 Jan 2019 15:24:43
Agree you get nothing from loans improveing other clubs players, welldone bruce, that's why u sign your own players if we don't go up or reach play offs its not deanos fault past manager mistakes its nxt season that matters this season is a free hit really its not his team yet still bruces with all his signings still in team, until its his team we can't judge villa yet.

Been reading that Villa are very close to signing Celta Vigo midfielder Nemanja Radoja. Rumours suggest it could be in January or in the summer when his contract expires, with the player already having agreed to the move. Thoughts anyone.

1.) 31 Dec 2018 07:33:58
Cant see him getting a work permit.

With just a few days to go before we play our beloved neighbours in yet another local derby clash expectation are again running high. As usual for the bluenoses these fixtures against Villa are the pinnacle of their season with not much else to look forward so defeat for them is always far more of a crushing blow, it's not that the outcome doesn't mean anything to Villans but just that during our season we usually have our sights set a little higher than just winning the two derby matches so the one off results don't carry quite as much meaning for ourselves.

You can love Bruce or hate him but I think I'm right in saying that he never lost against City whilst managing our club so I hope Deano can follow suit in this department starting by serving up his first victory in the second city derby. This match as always should be electrifying and will be a great experience for the new manager and is sure to give him a taste of what Villa are all about, so hopefully the day ends well for him.

For me at the moment it's all about which Villa turns up, a huge improvement could easily be seen against Derby but for some other matches under Deano we have been little less impressive. So I suppose you could say that the jury is still out on what this season holds for us. I myself will always remain an optimist so I am calling a 2-0 victory for Villa with Abraham and Grealish finding the net, but these games are usually tight and heavily contested so a positive start is key.

I have a good feeling about Villa at the moment and despite what Sunday brings I still fancy our chances of promotion but as I have stated before December is a tough month, but if we come through that and remain in the frame then our chances should greatly improve. UTV.

I'm reading that the Yannick Bolasie deal is to include an option to buy of around 15 million.

1.) 23 Aug 2018 17:00:30
Where are you reading that?

2.) 24 Aug 2018 01:55:48
Read it on DJC1983, sorry for the late reply I have had a long day/ night.

3.) 24 Aug 2018 16:47:40
Cheers for the update AVillaFan.

Trouble is with sites like HITC, they take a story from literally any 'source' (Some opinion pole in Australia or talksport for example) and then rehash it into an article. Just click bait really.
Would have thought any loan to buy deal for a player like Bolasie would have plenty of clauses in. including us getting promoted, him playing X% of games and us being covered for recurring injury. Probably why the whole thing is taking so long.

Not much sign of Villa4eva calling for managers heads and players to be axed after 7 wins on the spin. Our season looked all but over a few months ago and now we look certain to make the playoffs, with those very players and manager. So you would expect everyone to be positive and full of joy and happiness posting on here, but is it? The doom and gloom and negativity continues to appear in posts even though things are now going well. If you can't enjoy the good times when they arrive why bother, it appears some fans are far happier when the wheels fall off.

1.) 12 Apr 2019 12:08:43
AVillaFan, good post and I agree . Surely with the position we are now in, we hav to be positive.
Big, Big game tomorrow, another 3 points and we will be even more positive HaHa .
Onwards&Upwards Villaforever .

2.) 12 Apr 2019 14:24:45
Avillafan people don't enjoy it when we loose, and people are aloud different views, i'm just setting bck and watching where we if its the prem great championship so be it, lifes too short to moan about football now can't be arsed haha.

3.) 12 Apr 2019 16:14:36
We all want the best and things are fine and dandy, however I am not sure anyone should be using the word "certain" cautiously optimistic, positive, good chance, yes, "certain" don't know where that comes from though.

4.) 12 Apr 2019 18:16:32
I agree, bang on scotty.



20 Jan 2019 00:25:14
All those who are moaning about Smith are the very same people who called for Bruce to go. I was one who did back Bruce back then as I do back all our managers, so I will now also stand up and back Smith.

Smith hasn't had a full window yet and is pretty much having to get by with Bruce's squad, so to even judge or criticize him now is just folly and shows just how little you know about the game.

One in an hundred managers will take over a club and have fairy tale results from the word go, and even then he may never emulate that same feat again. You all wanted Bruce out which is fair enough, but you have to live with the consequence of doing so and "time" is one of those said conquences.

It could take Smith 2-3 seasons to get a squad of his own liking together and for any of us to see the benefit or failure of his doing. So in the meantime, if you are a true Villa fan then I suggest you get behind the club and manager with your full support, quit the moaning and show patience to reap the rewards of your own decision. Negative talk at this point is just none productive, disruptive and pointless, It's also just what opposition fans want to see.

Get behind your club . UTV.

1.) 21 Jan 2019 15:18:27
I couldn’t agree more avilla fan

The team that smith inherited is one which is totally unbalanced and need to be ripped apart and started again with .

Being Brutally honest out of the entire team there is less than a handful that I would keep .

Those being

Kodjia (maybe)
El Ghazi (option to purchase)
Possibly Hourihane . but there are better

The rest I would sell or move on . It should be a cull top to bottom.

We are talking about players most have which have had plenty of opportunity to produce the goods for 2-3 managers.

"Tammy Abraham is NOT for sale".

1.) 03 Jan 2019 07:47:30
Abrahams going I don't think so!

2.) 03 Jan 2019 11:16:31
I hope this is true.
Sleepless nights since transfer window opened!



23 Dec 2018 13:20:30
Merry Christmas to all the Villans out there and an happy new year. Hope you all have a fantastic one starting with today's result. Maybe 2019 could be the year we return to the promised land. UTV

What's happened to "Kingy" he's normally all over these pages coming into a transfer window with his inside information of new signings. Come back "Kingy" all is forgiven!

1.) 21 Dec 2018 22:04:27
No, it’s not.

2.) 22 Dec 2018 14:31:26
Kingy, is no different to any of us on here.
I can only remember him being correct once, problem with that is that most of us were also correct, concerning Benteke.
Have enough guesses and you are bound get it right eventually.
Hum Bug.

3.) 22 Dec 2018 17:28:09
I Know Villadave but the entertainment value is sky high. That man convinces himself that he's got it spot on and his so called contacts have given him reliable information.

4.) 23 Dec 2018 10:41:53
Kingy is alive and well and my sources are telling me next week a lb deal will be done. Kingy exclusive πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰.

5.) 23 Dec 2018 13:14:31
Glad your still around Kingy, keep those posts coming mate I for one enjoy them. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ˜œ.

What happened to wanting a young team?

If that is the case why was he allowed to go in the first place? he should not have even been available for selection.

Every single manager in the league is only a few games away from the chop that is common knowledge. The new owners stated long ago that they wished for a more youthful squad and Terry at 37 doesn't make it into that category. Much of the hype surrounding Terry is press generated after the crisis of our first loss but I think Terry has know moved elsewhere anyway so it's all irrelevant.

Can't see this happening, More likely a press generated tale until they can find some real news, much like Abraham who isn't even available as yet.

The hold up is entirely down to Everton giving the go ahead, everything else is in place.

I didn't, I said at the time it was disruptive to swap managers and that time would be needed for him to build his own team. Now all those wanting Bruce out aren't prepared to give the new manager any time, ridiculous.

What another one! Smith hasn't even had time to build his own squad.
You can't keep swapping managers every time we have a bad spell that would foolish.

Some fake twitter accounts would suggest not. I prefer to see what happens in the real world.
