So Mings has signed. Does anyone know anything about Caen full-back Fred Guilbert as he is rumoured to be next through the door?

Were supposed to have been after Hayden from Newcastle. But that now looks unlikely because Samaris’ move to Newcastle from Benfica is off, so now were supposedly in for Samaris. Who would we rather have, Hayden or Samaris?

According to Sky, Mings is on his way to the Midlands this morning to undergo a medical at Villa. If anyone is at a loose end today, could they get over to Bodymoor, stand on the gates and give us live updates.

Anyone know when Jack's back?

Latest reports from the club suggest he'll miss the few and aim to be back for the Sheff Utd game.

According to Talkrubbish, we are signing Netherlands winger Anwar El Ghazi on loan from Lille - initially on a season-long loan, though there will be an option to buy.

This kid when at Ajax was a potential superstar.
Has not hit them heights since but he is a talent no doubt.


2.) 22 Aug 2018 12:15:30
From what I've seen on Twitter / Internet Anwar El Ghazi was super highly rated at Ajax but it hasn't worked out for him at Lille - This kid could be a revelation in the Championship.

Bolaise is close also, not convinced but if he can get back to the form he showed at Palace, pre injury, we have has a serious player.

If we can add Targett and Abraham as well, wow, that is a serious team.

Nyland

Hutton, Chester, Tuanzebe, Targett

Bjarnason, McGinn

Bolaise, Grealish, El Ghazi

Abraham

Subs:

De Laet
Taylor
Whelan
Lansbury
Hogan
Hourihane
Jedinak
Bree
Davis
Green
Moreira
Elphick
Kodjia
Elmohamady
Hepburn-Murphy
Bunn
Doyle-Hayes
Adomah.

According to BM journalist on twitter both Bolasie and El Ghazi have agreed to join and club are waiting (presumably on paperwork) before official announcement. If these two reach even close to their full potential this could make us genuine title contenders.
Agree with previous post that we need one more defensive signing and ideally another striker. Looking good though, so hopefully a bouncing Villa Park will really get us going this year.
UTV.

like the team
Nyland

Hutton, Chester, Tuanzebe, Targett

Bjarnason, McGinn

Bolaise, Grealish, El Ghazi

Abraham
still to be convinced about Nyland but we have no option.

Much as I am grateful for the fact that we have consecutively beaten two of the division's bottom-feeders, tomorrow's game will be the acid-test. If we can put in a good shift against Huddersfield away, then perhaps we can then say that we have turned the corner. Does anyone know if Bjarnason and / or Grealish are likely to have recovered from their knee injuries in time?

MenaceDortimer

1.) 06 Mar 2017 16:28:29
Think you are bang on menace. its been very good the last couple of wins, however the true test will come when we play teams at the top end of the division. It will be a tough ask, but hopefully the lads will take the confidence built up from the last couple of wins into the game with Huddersfield. another decent shift needs putting in make no mistake. It can be done look at forest takin out Brighton. their position should not put us off. NO FEAR.


2.) 06 Mar 2017 16:41:51
Both Bjarnason and Grealish are still injured and will not play.


3.) 06 Mar 2017 19:15:39
Kodjia out on the left and Davies in the centre from the start? Or Amavi left wing. Only options if we keep the formation.


4.) 06 Mar 2017 20:32:45
Can't see why he wouldn't start amavi. He is quick and has a good delivery. Surely that left wing position would be ideal for him? Doesn't have to worry too much about defending just get down the wing and get the ball in.


5.) 06 Mar 2017 20:41:04
Have we fallen that far that if we put a good shift in tomorrow against Huddersfield we might get something.

Yes I know that they are third, but. Huddersfield. It just makes me sad when a few years ago we were on the cusp if champions league football :- (.


6.) 06 Mar 2017 21:00:03
I know what you mean mate but that's the new reality at the moment
We can wallow in self pity and sail down the divisions reminiscing about the glory days or we take the bull by the horns and crack on.


7.) 06 Mar 2017 21:36:58
The only place amavi should be is leftback-leftback in the changing rooms is all he's good for now, since his injury he's been going missing in the tackling department, harsh to say maybe;but he's more a liabilty, good going forward, but going back, sad to say he's got a mental block, you might as well play him as a winger only now, a shame, but he ain't no full blooded defender now, sell him in the summer and re-invest, simple as.


8.) 06 Mar 2017 22:10:46
We play to full potential we beat Huddersfield, no doubt.


9.) 07 Mar 2017 16:35:10
Lets look at this logically. We won't make the play offs, we're pretty safe from relegation looking at the points required in previous seasons, so let's blood some of the youngsters and see how they go. You never know they may save a few million in the long run.

After 29 games last season we had 53 points, were 3rd in the table and one point off automatic promotion, so we're certainly nowhere near as competitive as last year (but even then there was a lot of moaning going on on this site) . Currently we're only 4 points off the play-offs, so I would disagree that our season is over as we've still got 17 games to play. That said, we are now almost at the point of not being able to afford to lose and, without Tammy and Jack, the remainder of the team appears to be rudderless. Last season we had Terry steering the ship on the field so, as part of the management team, I can't understand why he hasn't grabbed hold of someone like McGinn on the training ground and developed him into an on-field leader. God knows we need one.

In todays game there isn't any around any more mate gone are the days of keane, vieria, terry, gerreard, etc there a dieing breed.


 

 

08 Jan 2019 13:20:43
Having been off the site for most of the last week, did anyone take time to notice that we are already in possession of a player who is capable of scoring crucial last-minute goals against good quality Championship opposition. Trouble is, he's on loan to Pompey.

Last night I was fortunate enough to be away with work in Milan. After the tragic motorway bridge collapse in Genoa, the first game of the season was postponed but, fortunately for me, rearranged for last night. It's not the first time I've been to the San Siro, but it's still a thoroughly awesome experience. Even though it seems half full, there's still 50,000+ people in the stadium. Earlier in the day, my Italian colleagues were reminiscing about the 1980's - they were remembering Villa and AC Milan as well-respected powerhouses of that time. They weren't familiar with any of the other local clubs (Bluenoses, Baggies or even Wolves) but they all knew Villa. Currently, we both seem to have the same problem - ability to get an early goal but very unreliable defences. Genoa's equaliser last night was the sort of bizarre own-goal that we would have conceded. However, what I realised finally that we need to encourage the kind of support for the team that we have been lacking of late is . A Drum!
For the whole 90 mins, a drummer kept bashing out the chants and their Holte End equivalent were not allowed to stop singing - even when they were playing like muppets - there was no opportunity to go silent. Genoa themselves only brought probably a couple of hundred away fans - but also their own Drummer, so they didn't stop singing either. So I think we should start a campaign to allow out own official Holt End drummer to at least ensure we are forced to be 100% dedicated to roaring the team on, even when things are not going our way.

You buy the drum and beat it, and I will do the singing, hows that Menace.

According to the press, we're in a 'sticky patch' well historically so has my missus been, and I'm the only one whose been able to haul her out of it . perhaps I'm ideally placed to replace Steve .

Como again? ;)


 

 

02 Oct 2018 21:41:26
FFS. That's it now. My patience with Bruce has finally completely run out. How do we go from 2-0 up at half-time and at home to drawing 3-3?
No doubt some will be rejoicing that we managed to save a point. We were at home and supposedly have a great squad - Frankly I'm not too fussed who it is, just not Bruce.

Yep, because apparently Flackie, unless you hate absolutely everyone who is not Villa, there's something wrong with you.

Hate to state the obvious, but were going to need to beat Hull by 4 clear goals to go back third. Not beyond the realms of possibility, but a bit of a stretch methinks.

If Bruce has lost the dressing room, perhaps someone should tell him - it's down the tunnel on the left .

I see we've signed Nicola Ibbetson from Chelski as our new chief commercial officer if that helps :)

Stoke defender Moritz Bauer is another option being talked about. Unfortunately it looks as though we might have to wait until the summer if we want Romaine Sawyers from the Bees. Reports suggest we may also let Bjarnason go.
