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.


2.) 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.


3.) 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.


4.) 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.


5.) 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.


6.) 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!


7.) 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.

Reports from bloggers saying we're keeping a watching brief on garcia of st. ettiene.


 

 

12 Sep 2017 01:28:14
Remember a while back we tried hard to get the then st. ettiene manager but he declined citing he would honour his contract and we ended up with that 'jack -in-the-box' remi garde, well monsieur christophe galtier stepped down during the summer and is available, i believe steve round was impressed with his record, style and ability to get the best out of what was available.

if the board push the panic button again i wouldn't be surprised if our garlic munching friend is on the short list, in fact, maybe our 'voice' on the committee -a.k.a. - WTW could ask a cheeky question to his old mate mr. wyness, and report back to the riff-raff (thats me obviously!) if he twitches at all? what do ya say walkies?

Your joking ent you he's going to be too busy telling Wyness how he's worked it all out and it's all his fault.


2.) 12 Sep 2017 08:35:32
Lol-what was i thinking, i'm being a schmuk again aren't i! apologies for that Chris, i clearly haven't got my head in the game! i can see wyness scarpering for the exit double quick fashion with wtw on him like a pitbull! -i'd pay to see that-go on wtw, let him have both barrels fella!


3.) 12 Sep 2017 09:07:32
There will be a few of us we ask him questions between us and await hopfully honest answers there's a few things of the agenda tonight minutes will be taken I wish I could go and give him both barrels but we can't we can give hard hitting questions but that's it. In fairness he seems a nice guy but sometimes not just me but few others get the feeling his telling us what we want to here. Things on the agenda Team performance season card failure to go out on time. Loyalty card and Tony Xia some are worried about the china goverment rumours.

Whether we want to keep kodjia or not makes no difference, as long as he's fit and not having a mare, he's off in january, he would have joined fernebache this summer but got injured, his agent has been touting him around to clubs here and abroad all summer, as long as he proves he's back on form he'll be doing the frankie bough, more worringly is those raving gunners have been scouting andre green and might join bournemouth in making a bid if not now, then january, o'hare and davis have been scouted by manc. citeh, so its time to get steve round to get his finger out and sort some new contracts out, as some of you boys have mentioned on here already, ffs let's not let the cream of our young squad get nabbed on the cheap., their the future for sure, with them who needs dodgy mercenaries, homegrown all the way.

Yea mate, maybe in your world all of that is true, in the real world however. not so much.


3.) 24 Aug 2017 11:30:25
So what you're saying is that we shouldn't tie our youth down to long contracts then.? and you don't think that clubs would be looking at a 20 a season goal scorer? By hitting the disagree button on 82's post that means that you don't?

UTV.


4.) 24 Aug 2017 11:46:23
Or maybe people disagree that Kodjia agent has been touting him around all summer, it is enevitable no matter what happens he will be sold in January, that the gunners have been scouting Andre Green, and Man City who have their own world class youth system with players breaking into their squad that will be challenging for the premier league and competing in the highest club competition this season are looking to steal our youth players. Seems to me Classof82 believes the papers way too much and has got a little too carried away after we played a load of youth lads in a cup game. Your reply was so selective Ally it's boardering on Trump territory.


5.) 24 Aug 2017 12:47:26
So many flaws in your thinking that I could go with but as someone has said before on here, I'm dizzy from going round in circles with ya, so I'll keep my thoughts to myself and let you have the last word like you try to do with every thread πŸ€—

UTV.


6.) 24 Aug 2017 13:30:04
Chris, the kodjia link to fernebache isn't a paper rumour, its widely known he and his agent were looking for a loan move at the very least, fernebache said they they wanted him, and he was going to activate the clause in his contract to go out on loan (now why would he want a loan clause inserted if he was all about staying with us is up to everyone to decide? ), and his agent HAS been active in letting it be known his client now wishes to play european club football regularly (and i'm guessing a hefty pay rise too), as for the citeh rumour, not sure that one has been in the papers, got told that by someone who saw them coming to all level of games since the second half of last season, as for green, same thing, bournemouth and palace have been open about their interest, the gunners as usual have been watching him on the sneak for months, they've been keeping it quiet because (as i'm sure your aware) in the past they've pilfered our youth team players;such as our youth club captain and and generally behaved in a less than gentlemanly manner in how they conduct themselves, the big i am scenario, i hope kodjia does stay because for what he brings, we couldn't afford to replace him for anything less than 40 mill (in my opinion), but let's see what happens, i reckon if we take the league by storm he'll stay, anything else, don't be surprised if our loyal centre forward all of a sudden plays the loan card, be that for fernebache, or whichever club here or in europe is looking for a proven striker to help them stay up, and as for your take on citeh, and their world class system, i remember them saying they had no interest in raheem sterling and then, boom, signed, sealed and delivered, citeh definitely are sniffing around davis, can't say as i blame them, he reminds me of danny welbeck-but with a brain! and on another note, have your heard yet Ally if mcshortfarces' house is being emptied, we could with sunderland grabbing him asap!


7.) 24 Aug 2017 13:32:09
Please do point them out mate, sorry I don't agree that if people press the dislike button on something it means they don't agree with 3 points out of about 8. Don't be upset.


8.) 24 Aug 2017 13:50:59
82 - you could well be correct on everything, however you present no real evidence what so ever. Can you provide any evidence of; city being interested in Davies, Arsenal watching Green for months (can't see what they've been watching for months, he's made a handful of appearances), they've hardly raided our youth ranks, in stuck after Dan Crowley. You've taken the Kodjia stuff straight out of the papers, the doctor confirmed no such clause existed so don't understand how your still "being told" that. All I pointed out was that on the basis of probability and when you weigh things up, such as city's youth team, it makes zero sense for them to be interested in two championship youth lads who have 3 league appearances between them. Ally seems upset because I pointed out that just because people press the dislike button doesn't mean they don't agree with everything you've said - a bit precious to be honest. The three things he pointed out are 3 things every villa fan will agree on, however the rest you can't expect people to go on with no real evidence just "I got told" and stuff taken straight out of the back pages.


9.) 24 Aug 2017 15:18:18
How's that kid doing for Citeh that they got off Fulham for Β£10M+? and Crowley that Arsenal 'stole' off us? They're young English players being bought to get those teams quotas of 'home grown' players, despite having the most 'amazing' youth academies? As for Kodjia and his agent, do you think he sits on his hands for his 10%? Ain't seen Kodjia advertising razor blades or shampoo lately so how could he possibly make more for his 10%? πŸ€”

Money is God in football, you or I would stay at Villa for the whole of our career if they'd have us, the modern day footballer wouldn't (Gabby on Β£50K p.w. probs the exception lol) and on top of this Dr Tony is a businessman, he owns our club and i'm sure he has his heart in it but money makes money, football ain't about a pie and a pint watching you heroes any more, its dog eat dog. We were expected to go up at the 1st attempt, it didn't happen and would understand Kodjia's thinking if that clause was in his contract. I also understand that for the greater good, if we got a bucket of cash for him and we go up this year, we wouldn't care less about him, he's 1 player. definitely my final comment on this, Trump, over and out πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

WOW Ally, what the heck do you think your doing, sending in a post without it being ok'd by certain people on here, the cheek of ya! , some on here could take offence at that mate! Your right though, Barry would have been a nice touch, Oh well, fingers crossed young mr. krankee skidaddles, please note i'm writing this post without permission from certain people who seem to think their invigilators, i think i'll let the other conspirators have their say, i must have got wrong the definition of a 'rumours' page being actually about rumours? ;but hey, i'll take my leave stage left and let the other fellas on here post what they've heard, i thought half the fun sometimes reading on here was some mad as a box of frogs 'rumour', if for no other reason it made you at least laugh, or dream it could happen? but it seems that's no longer the case, shame, but what can you do, i'll let the belt and braces' mob monitor and determine the direction we can take, don't want be accused saying something that hasn't been confirmed by those in charge, imagine, the scandal! be lucky Ally, i'm off to the funny farm to hear some more gossip (or as some would say, read the back pages), let's hope the season snowballs into a corker.,

Ok boys, I cannot make sense of any of what your saying, by mad as a box of frogs are you confirming you've completely speculated the lot in your head and posted it? Ally you seem to be able to just completely divert from any questions you've been asked, first you reply to me saying Man City won't be interested in our kids by saying "they said they wasn't interested in raheen sterling then boom" now you've answered me saying our owner confirmed there wasn't a clause in a players contract by saying "football is no longer pie and a pint, it's dog eat dog", it's like the ramblings of a mad man who has so much to say it all just vomits out. Sorry you think I'm an invigilator for trying to add some balance and reality to your acid trip dreams, now I understand the situation that you like to post this stuff for fun, I'll leave you boys on the heavy stuff to itπŸ‘.

14 Sep 2017 08:29:41
Just a quick thought, we seem to be missing so many chances which no doubt would have given us at least another 7 points, so my question is-do we have a designated forwards coach on our staff? because if we do, sack him, if we don't, then how about bringing one in, then brucey and the other coaches could concentrate on the defence and midfield areas, what do you reckon fellas?

Classof82

1.) 14 Sep 2017 10:12:53
Elmo laid a ball straight across the box and Hogan Miss kicked it, Hogan blocked one of our shots on the line, Snodgrass hit the bar from 8 yards out - that's just poor from the players, nothing to do with coaching that's just basic child stuff.


 

 

11 Sep 2017 13:10:44
Some on here want bruce to go, some to stay, but at the end of the day its a results business;if you compare what bruce has done since he's arrived, how he has spent and imposing his football ideology with the club at the top of the table, i think that should help clarify things, cardiff were in the relegation zone last season and warnock performed more magic again, roll forward to the summer, our spend has been in the TENS of millions, i think cardiff spent about 6 or 8 million, look at the football side, warnocks' team are built on a solid, no nonsence defence, and they're playing attractive, attacking football, but can also mix it and bully when needed, can we say the same, all of us have an opinion, but the bottom line is if you look at the top team and compare them to us, are we on par, better, or worse, that gentlemen is what we have to decide, that's the bottom line, and finally, players morale, if you compare cardiff players to ours, which do you think try harder for the club, the manager and the fans, -and who goes home happier-enough said .

Any of you lads see brucey hinting he wouldn't mind if we signed that free agent stephen kelly (? ) who'se supposedly been with us JUST for fitness, as a favour! now it seems brucey is saying we should sign him because he can bring a lot to us as a right back, if its true i hope he knows what he's doing, and what does that say about those at the club fighting for that position, and more to the point, how do the players themselves feel?

Would rather him bring in Joe ledley to replace Whelan,
But having said that do we really need Bruce to bring in anymore players full stop,


2.) 10 Sep 2017 10:25:03
Haven't seen it, where has he hinted at this? Would be another stupid move that we will regret in 12 months when we can get rid of him.

Walkies-have you been watching them re-runs of the carry on films again, talking about how you think we're going to gain entry! glad to see you haven't thrown the baby out with the bath water this time tound fella! everyone seems to agree we went into neutral second half and handed them the initiative, no excuses, we got tonked by the better team TODAY, but remember how leeds have been tearing up trees right from the start? the last couple of games they've been pump, so let's remember wolves will have peaks and troughs (as will we all), as for maybe looking at changing coaching tactics, there's the nub of it for me, brucie likes to play each individual team as he sees it, where as wolves, leeds, reading etc, prefer to play a system, and let's be honest, foreign players are more technically gifted, so possession and system contrived play is more their bread and butter than ours, so the sun is still going to rise, and the politicians will still try and stuff everyone for all they can, and life goes on, come monday morning, brucie presses the reset button and we crack on, its still a marathon and the likes of us and others have a few more twists and turns coming our way, happy days tiger!

I reckon their dodging the salads and going for the stodge Mainbob! as for fitness, a couple of talking heads on the radio were saying they thought brucie has adopted the slow-burn technique, apparently meaning kinda steady-eddie paced as a matter of course, with shΓ²rt bursts of high tempo when able, not sure i agree with that explanation, but they said it means less injuries over the season, and coming towards the end of the season, in theory players have more in the tank to up their game? above and beyond my thinking, but there you go!

Well said Mainbob, the one thing that worries me about fulham is that they play till the final whistle, don't give up, and i think i"m right in saying they've either won or rescued a game in the last ten minutes on a regular basis, so here's hoping brucie makes them put down their doughnuts and have a fruit and veg smoothie instead!
