Villa confirm RDM as manager with Clarke as no.2!


1.) 02 Jun 2016 13:49:16
at last. things will start to move now.

2.) 02 Jun 2016 13:51:46
Great quote on the BBC:

"Clarke will take hands-on responsibility for Villa's group of underachieving players".

That'll be all of them then .

3.) 02 Jun 2016 13:57:02
Buzzing Di Matteo tactically very good from his record and Clark old school won't stand the things we saw this season could be a great balance, onwards and upwards!

4.) 02 Jun 2016 13:57:40
Where you seen this?

5.) 02 Jun 2016 14:05:27
BBC Website.

6.) 02 Jun 2016 14:49:07
Dream Team
What a coup
Ask the baggies if they would have em over Pullis
I think so.

7.) 02 Jun 2016 15:04:08
I must admit i had and still do have reservations about Di Matteo, but with Clarke there too i'm a lot more confident going into the season.
Between them they have a bit of charisma and a very good tactical awareness which should do us well. plus a bit of 'good cop, bad cop' in the dressing room. even if that does sound a bit kinky. i'd much rather kinky than Randy though.

8.) 02 Jun 2016 15:58:14
this will be signed off tomoz. it's not yet been signed but there is no problems and they will do.

9.) 02 Jun 2016 14:47:25
Holy shmoly, i'm actually very excited by rdm and clarke as his number two, this is as shrewd a move at villa i've seen in many a year, i just hope that flackie, mendax, villadaz and the others get on board and stop being so negative, all those posts doubting our great leader, see, i told you guys not to jump to conclusions!

10.) 02 Jun 2016 18:03:18
Kingvilla, you rascal, you were right all along! i just don't understand how all the others ever doubted you! they got to name that stand after ya now surely?

11.) 02 Jun 2016 18:15:38
Do I sense a twang of sarcasm?!
I've not once been negative at our new owner, or the idea of rdm!

Quite the opposite!

12.) 02 Jun 2016 18:26:08
Hahahahhahahhahahahhahaha classof82 pure class comment I nearly wet maself.

13.) 02 Jun 2016 18:43:17
I wanted moyes from the moment garde was sacked and was disappointed when he pulled out of the running but di matteo with clarke as his assistant has got me excited about next season. UTV.

14.) 02 Jun 2016 18:49:43
Hopefully tomorrows statement announcing rdm as manager will include an update on the takeover!

15.) 02 Jun 2016 18:53:22
Looking at the comments people have made on the BBC Sport site following the announcement, general reaction from all quarters seems very positive. There are the usual pathetic slights from jealous blue-arses, but I read one brilliant suggestion as to what to do with Flabby next season. Put him out on loan to BCFC - that would teach him :)

16.) 02 Jun 2016 20:28:25
Sarcasm, moi? now then flackie, i like you never ever had a doubt, but my best mate dr. xia asked me to join this site and report to him the strength of the fans' belief; it was my unfortunate task to play the negative side and see what happens (the pantomime villian ), i was happy to report back to my old mucka tony, the fans had passion and verve, all in all its turned out well and me, i'm a bleedin hero me mate, but listen guys i can't hang around, i'm off to the hospital for an operation, for some peculiar reason my nose has grown about 4 foot long, i can't think why!



19 May 2016 14:44:55
Several qoutes now coming direct from the new Villa owner being prepared to spend up to £50m in the first season. Goes on to say he aims to get Villa into the top 6 within 5 years. which is very optimistic!
I'm pretty sure most new owners have great ambition for their respective clubs but at least its something positive (and confirmed) to focus on eh!
He also confirms that its not a one-horse race for the managerial position. reckon that's why Jose hasn't gone to Utd yet ;)


1.) 19 May 2016 15:27:03
Yeah worry is brendan Rogers is being thrown around a fair bit now, hopefully this takeover will help us keep hold of some players like amavi, and ayew, tho he's had secret talks with west ham anf crystal palace which I'm sure is tapping up.

2.) 19 May 2016 15:53:05
Ive also heard a rumour he is looking at buying into China's main TVs channel star TV, the possibilities are endless if this guy is the real deal.

3.) 19 May 2016 18:41:37
DBS1983 - i have to say mate if we can get out of the championship then spend in the premier there is no reason why we can't finish top half of the premiership in a few years never mind 5! If Leicester can win the dam thing we can have a go too with a good manager and teamwork! Birmingham are you listen to the song we are singing.

4.) 19 May 2016 21:44:28
Hi Devlins - Great to hear some positivity on here and i'm certainly feeling it too. just trying not to get carried away though as it's going to be tough enough getting out of the Championship let alone pushing top 6 in the Prem. One step at a time I think. For now let's just hope we get rid of the overpaid under performers and start to rebuild.
Hopefully if this happens quickly we can get VP rocking with some long overdue wins and take momentum into the Prem where we'll see how ambitious this guy really is.

5.) 20 May 2016 00:28:53
well said Devlins, a man with vision.



18 May 2016 13:27:27
A few rumour sites are suggesting Hollis is currently in China to finalise a deal.
Lets hope that if this does go through, Lerner has stuck true to his word and handed over to people with real ambition but who will also act responsibly.


1.) 18 May 2016 16:00:52
Hollis just spotted in Birmingham, so the young guns at The ST Andrews Times "Evening mail". have got it wrong yet again!



30 Jul 2015 13:38:12
French journalist is tweeting that both Adebayor and Veretout are currently at Bodymoor Heath and set to sign by close of play today.
As with all VIlla transfers it's not done until it's done, but looks to be very close now.
Gestede in tomrorow and then one more central defender and we're looking good. an established winger in the mould of Townsend, Young etc would be the icing on the cake!


1.) 30 Jul 2015 14:58:28
Totally agree hopefully cissoko nzogbia Bennett tonev all go too

2.) 30 Jul 2015 15:39:33
6 million for gestede is a bargain. One third the price of Austin and he is more physical. Only thing Austin has is a years prem experience.

3.) 30 Jul 2015 16:00:35
Personally speaking, from what i've seen of Gestede i think he'll make a great target man but won't offer much other than that until/unless he develops his link up play and ability to work the channels. He's only 24 so its not out of the question that he could get a lot better in those areas, but he's never going to offer much pace or the abity to run at defenders. That's fine though as long as we have the players around him to feed off his strengths and supply ammunition. which are that he is an absolute beast in the air. he's right up there with Andy Carroll and Benteke for ability in the air!
Lets just hope we complete the deal now!

4.) 30 Jul 2015 16:16:17
Sorry - turns out he's 26. so a little less chance of him developing his game. but not impossible!

5.) 30 Jul 2015 16:55:47
Sorry DBS, I think overall as a player Gestede will contribute more to the side than Benteke did, Gestede is very much a team player, target man, runner, Hold up player, and striker and does not sulk.
Its only my opinion though, and we can all be wrong, but from what I have seen he will be just Dandy, I know I am going to get slatted but that is what this site is all about we all differ in some way.
Speak to other teams supports an see what they say about him.

6.) 30 Jul 2015 17:13:33
Totally agree, bar cissoko leaving! Without him Bennett is back up left back as crespo played prodominantely CB/RB last season. Don't understand where the hate for cissoko has come from, was brilliant when he got his chance last season.

7.) 30 Jul 2015 18:45:53
Cissoko was far from brilliant. he was ok defending wise. his attacking play terrible.

8.) 30 Jul 2015 20:49:12
I agree on Cissoko - he is solid cover for Amavi and offers a very defensive counter style if Sherwood ever needs it.



29 Jul 2015 10:38:07
Reports in French media suggest that Veretout is still set to join Villa and flying in today for talks. Links to Leicester are due to Villa haggling over the final few details with the chairman of Veretout's current club stating that if Villa do not agree the deal tonight, it may well open up the door for Leicester or another club.


1.) 29 Jul 2015 14:26:09
Yeh, I have been reading this as well DBS, we need to learn when conducting ourselves over transfers that when we are presented with a good deal to shut up and make it happen.
We have the chance of obtaining a very good player for peanuts in todays market, I say shut up and stop haggling Villa, get the deal over the line or rue the consequences.
We have lost players for decades because of a quid hear and a quid there, Deadly Doug was the master at it, learn from it.
We are building a new squad why loose an obvious target because of minor issues.

2.) 29 Jul 2015 14:55:34
Exactly villadave, let's hope Villa have learned their lesson and can get this one over the line!
Generally speaking, i like what Sherwood is doing with the squad in terms of replacing 'deadwood' for what hopefully turns out to be higher calibre players. Still think we need two or three proven players who can hit the ground running (CB, CM and a number 9) and improve our starting eleven, but that might just be me being greedy after all of the recent activity.

3.) 29 Jul 2015 15:38:45
I think you’re a bit like me DBS, we are like kids in a sweet shop at the moment with all this activity going on, we want everything on show.
Its great though and makes us all feel good.

4.) 29 Jul 2015 15:56:22
agree with dbs 1983 and villa dave this is an old tacktick used by us for many years and we have lost a great many top players if we don,t wake up we are going to loose veretout next who I have read really wants to join us have a go tim will ya put the suits right and leav,e tim to get em in top ten or better anyone carbisbay.

5.) 29 Jul 2015 21:50:37
Remembering us lose robbie keane to coventry ! Lol

6.) 29 Jul 2015 22:25:46
jb19, I remember us losing Keane to Coventry too, over half a million. Also, apparently we lost Falcao to Porto over some other similarly stupid number, I think it was we decided he wasn't worth 5 million pounds.

7.) 30 Jul 2015 07:33:22
We lost out on being owned by city's owner due to dilly Dallying about. Villa were the team they first approach to buy but doug thought it did not sound right lol bless him.

Lescott has had another Twitter 'incident' in which he followed Leeds Utd and then quick;y un-followed. Could mean nothing but would be nice if it meant he's on his way!


1.) 04 Aug 2016 15:55:04
actually think he would be a good fit for them! Here's hoping.



22 Jul 2016 17:31:52
Morrison has just started following Villa on twitter. whether that means he's signing or not remains to be seen but would seem a strange thing to do if he wasn't.

Bit of a gamble really, but hopefully a bit of research has been done and he's grown up a bit and is ready prove himself.


1.) 22 Jul 2016 18:21:09
If he has grown up, we should welcome him with open arms if he's as good as he potentially could be




06 Jun 2016 14:46:37
A local paper has found info from Companies House revealing that a new holding company has been created, listing Wyness, Hitchkins, Samuelson and Xia as directors.
Holding company is referred to as 'Recon Sports Ltd' and new directors are listed as registered on 27th May.


1.) 06 Jun 2016 19:56:27
so what does that mean mate not with it today must be the sun all i know is next week should be the cut off point. if we are as rich as we all think hope we buy fringe prem players rather than crap championship players newcastles team looks so strong compaŕed to the rest of the league at the moment don't you think they have tim kruel townsend sissko mitovic we need to be at that level mate just because we went down i still think we should aim at buying prem players not championship even norwich are fairly strong we will see how good this chairman is as big ron used to say don't tell me show me!

Xia has just confir4med via twitter that we're close to signing a midfielder and hopes to have it done before Saturday. Hope its Jedinak personally as we desperately need someone to grab hold of midfield and boss it! Been waiting for years for that, so what's a few more days.

I'm pretty sure that's not our policy Woodsvilla.
You need to look at it in context. For several seasons we've been near the bottom of the table and not playing very well, which means that most of our better players will be undervalued.
We have now been relegated, again impacting the market value of our players and activating release clauses that many players have built into their contracts these days. It's a clause that gives lower achieving teams like Villa a chance of signing a 'hot prospect', so it works both ways to some degree.
The Delph case again should be treated in context. He nearly left for free whilst at the top of his game. The club did well to get anything for him.
I share your frustration mate, but to suggest its club policy is a little wide of the mark i'd suggest. Unfortunately it's just a reflection of our poor management and league performance over several seasons.

I think the low buy-out clause will have been activated by our relegation. Had we styed up, i'm sure there either wouldn't have been a cluase or the figure would have been higher at least.
Only another 6/ 7 players to get out now and then we can bring in 2/ 3 qualty signings and begin our glorious chmpionship wnning season.

Has his move to Deportivo been formally confirmed? I haven't seen anything yet. which might explain why someone disagreed.
