At last the saga is over.

Whether you wanted smith as manager or not it's now time to get behind him and terry and get our great club climbing up the table.

I for one think he will do a great job playing football the right way.

Good chance we might see the best out of hogan like in his Brentford days.

John Terry's retired.
Looks like done deal
Coming to the villa as assistant manager or first team coach.


1.) 07 Oct 2018 20:55:30
The plot thickens.

2.) 08 Oct 2018 14:55:05
they won't last till easter. total and utter f**k up AGAIN.



03 Oct 2018 20:10:33
I'm hearing from certain quarters than dean smith won't be in the running as the new owners want a big name / high profile name and are working with Jorge mendes to create a list.


1.) 03 Oct 2018 20:39:52
I've herd that as well malc new owners want to make a statement, they have big ambitions for our club, it will be interesting to see who we get.

2.) 03 Oct 2018 21:00:07
Mendez is the agent for Jose - if he gets the sack it would be interesting lol.
My money is on Van Bronkhurst - he'd be tempted away with an open cheque book, and may bring RVP with him.

3.) 04 Oct 2018 17:29:50
slaphead rafa has had enough of the internal politics at newcastle, he's a tactical master, but not unfortunatly given to producing a flair based playing style, but his name will be in the media hat.

4.) 07 Oct 2018 12:56:50
MESSAGE TO OWNERS. get on with it.



24 Sep 2018 20:57:09
If the rumours are true that we are paying all of bolasies wages at £70,000 then we deserve everything that's coming our way.

Also shows how clueless Bruce is in terms of sanctioning this deal when he had Andre green and could of put the £70,000 onto John Terry's wages to try and sort out our defence.


1.) 25 Sep 2018 10:06:16
Would rather bolasie to green
Green has had plenty of chances and taken none of them. Move to Pompy best thing for him. And he's injured again. Yes we need to sort the defence up but attack is best form of defence. Hopefully now grealish has signed his new contract he will get on with it.

2.) 04 Oct 2018 17:26:27
green was like gardner he'd fall over a blade of grass, then spend a month lying down on the treatment bench.



08 Aug 2018 12:10:42
Villa not selling Grealish this window.
Few additions in combined with a striker and promotion is ours for the taking.


1.) 08 Aug 2018 12:33:58
Best signing this window keeping grealish,
Did not see this coming,
The owners deserve a massive thank you from us fans,
Have they found a way round this ffp?
And to fork out for players on top,
Just think 3 weeks ago we could have being in administration?

2.) 08 Aug 2018 13:06:54
Lets take this with a pinch of salt lads - If it still the case come tomorrow COB then fantastic, until then I am still assuming he is off.

3.) 08 Aug 2018 14:20:36
Spot on BK1982. Hope he stays but media frenzy surrounding him saying he's unhappy now. This ain't over yet.
How much does his staying or going affect our incomings too? Would McGinn still be interested if Grealish stays? Might affect his decision.

4.) 08 Aug 2018 14:32:44
So according to SSN he isn’t happy to stay . Can’t blame him really and if he does force the issue then he should go with our blessing

Clearly he loves the villa, but football is a job and a short career

If he does go I hope Brucie has a back up plan and we take the spuds for a lot of money

IMO I think this lad Mcginn looks a great little player, I would also try to beat Swansea to the signing of Ryan Woods.

5.) 08 Aug 2018 14:38:50

I've always been a big fan of Ryan woods,
And if Jack does force his move to spurs he would be the perfect replacement,
I can understand how Jack is feeling so whatever he does I have no complaints what he does,

6.) 08 Aug 2018 15:36:45
If he does go then it’s up to spurs to increase the offer to 35 to 40 million.
Like our owner stated “we don’t need the money “
Over to you mr levy lol.

7.) 08 Aug 2018 15:55:55
Villa clearly have set a price and that hasn't been matched yet - If Spurs want him then pay up, stop low balling Villa, we don't have to sell, this deal could have been done and dusted a month ago but Spurs dragged their heels - Now we have super rich owners who won't be bullied, I'd expect Jack to go for 35M+ if he does, get Ryan Woods and McGinn in and our Midfield is still very strong.

Add maybe a CB, RW, and ST on loan and promotion is still very much on the cards - If Jack stays then I'm very confident!

Now that smith has been appointed will McCormack be called back and be given a chance?
If he can find his old form what a great addition we would have.


1.) 11 Oct 2018 08:21:32
That's a good question,
Also Scott Hogan!
Everyone will have a clean sheet,

2.) 11 Oct 2018 10:02:16
Don’t let Ross anywhere near our club again - wrong attitude.

3.) 11 Oct 2018 10:06:23
Ross has no recall in his loan. He's away for the season. I do wounder if Richards will be pushed to earn his money though.



10 Oct 2018 17:19:53
Anyone know anything about this Bruno Lage who's appeared from nowhere for the villa job?


1.) 10 Oct 2018 18:12:39
Assistant manager at Swansea and Sheffield we'd!
Crazy selection for me.

2.) 10 Oct 2018 18:16:11
Another Mendes man. Worked with Carlos carvahal as an assistant.



10 Oct 2018 16:25:14
Few things I'm worried about

Why didn't the club have someone lined up when they knew Bruce was getting sacked (poor planning )

Who's making the decision?
The owners? Purslow? Or mendes

At this moment in time it's looking rather embarrassing as we seem to be like Man Utd with a scatter gun approach.

Doesn't look great when all the so called bookies favourites are turning us down left right and centre.

How will dean smith feel now knowing he was at least our 4th choice after Henry, faria and Rodgers.


1.) 10 Oct 2018 16:44:35

With all the talk on Twitter everywhere now that we are to approach Dean Smith to work alongside Terry I have a feeling he will turn us down just like the other 2!
We know he is a boyhood villa fan but he knows he is not the number 1 choice and more like the 3-4 choice,
We are acting desperate now and to see a Moyes or Sam or mad Mick turning up is still a possibility,
This is what villa do best build the fans hopes up then all fall down,
Hope I'm wrong with this though.

2.) 10 Oct 2018 18:00:05
Nowhere near as straightforward as that mate.
I trade and deal a lot with markets and bookmakers, and when money is involved, markets get manipulated and that in turn sets up a false marketplace.
The betting is being influenced at the moment, Simon Cowell would enter the betting if someone stuck a 1 million quid on him, does not mean he is a runner.
Sorry to go on, truth be known none of us know, it adds to the excitement.

3.) 10 Oct 2018 18:14:20

I know how bookies work .
Got 2 in my family and they talk rubbish most of time.

4.) 10 Oct 2018 18:19:18
Half of the people that the press have reported are in the frame and have turned em down might not of even spoke to villa. Favourites or only sorted by money being put on. Hence if I go and stick 1 million on kingy now I'd be on the bookies list.

5.) 10 Oct 2018 18:44:10
I just said that kingy,

6.) 10 Oct 2018 18:45:52
I am not saying how bookmakers work Bob, I was replying to Malc and commenting how the money affects the market, after all some money is false mate.
I am on about the money influence that creates favourites, not how bookies work.
Having two in your family you should know how bookies over react, are they bookmakers or just work there.
You should be a wealthy man then Bob.



09 Oct 2018 18:50:19
If the rumours are true and Henry is going to Monaco then why not try and get the outgoing Monaco manager jardim?
Done a fantastic job there especially when they keep selling there best players.

He is highly regarded throughout Europe.

Being Portuguese I wonder if he has ant links to mendes?




07 Oct 2018 21:30:42
All we need now is wenger as director of football.
Think I might be asking for too much there lol 😂😂.

The club have held preliminary talks with Henry and are saying the job is he’s if he wants it.
The sticking point is when our new director of football comes in and he has final decision for n transfers, apparently Henry wants final say on all transfers and unless those demands are met he will not be taking the job.

I’m also hearing that Patrick Vieira is an option should Henry turn us down.

Utter bs.

Who’s your source? Heinz?

Talking out his arse.

He is a real possibility especially with the mendes link.
I’d be willing to give him a shot, just hope he remembers all the early Mourinho magic and not the current stuff.

Martinez will not leave Belgium.
Wouldn’t want him anyway, he’s not that good a manager in all honesty.

And before anyone says look at what he has done with Belgium then I’m not being funny but most average managers blessed with the squad Belgium have would do the same.

Rodgers has ruled himself out

Looks like it’s the dream team of Henry and terry

Exciting times ahead.

Suppose the big question is whether they can work together in terms of 2 big personalities.

Couldn’t agree more flackie

The other thing I was thinking about is are the players that scared of James Chester? what I mean is he is our skipper but in my eyes he seems to nice. can't imagine him giving anyone a rollicking like terry would last season.

What we need is a leader who’s not afraid to upset the players by telling them what he thinks

Any ideas?

Difference being mason mount is playing well and influencing games

At this moment in time jacks done nothing for a number of matches now

Is he believing his own hype and thinks he doesn’t have to try?

With his ability he should be dictating games and scoring more goals

Whoever comes in as manager has surely got to play him number 10 role behind the front 2 to get the best out of him.

We had 63% possession they had 18 shots to our 6

So what is your point?
