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.

No final word on Hogan? Call me Mr Cynical, but is there a possibility that the transfer deal also included 3 vital points for Brentford tonight?

MenaceDortimer

1.) 01 Feb 2017 13:10:07
I agree with the doc we need patience now but i was a bit miffed as to why bikir lasted that long on the pitch last night as he looked knackered after 30 mins oh well


 

 

31 Jan 2017 21:05:21
Apparently Dimitar Berbatov is in the UK and about to sign for an unnamed club. Please NO!!

Newcastle I think mate.

BBC just confirmed we have signed Bedeau from Bury for around £900,000 with add-ons.

Anyone know what's happening with Bolasie? Its 2 days since he tipped up at the Bees game so it would be somewhat embarrassing if he now didn't sign.

So I assume this means we are still going to be paying Gabby the Babby to do absolutely naff all this season (again)? Fingers crossed for a team desperate to loan him off us.

MenaceDortimer

1.) 09 Aug 2018 17:47:40
Um Gabby has gone matemate. released at the end of the season.


2.) 09 Aug 2018 17:49:28
He went on a free ages ago.


3.) 09 Aug 2018 17:51:13
And he is playing in the turkish league same team as adebyeaor.


4.) 09 Aug 2018 19:53:24
Cheers VillaMen (and VillaWomen) Just had a couple of months off the grid as my old man passed on. His great uncle was vice chairman of the Villa 1900-1910 so I assume the pair of them are looking down approvingly at the last few weeks activity.


5.) 09 Aug 2018 20:00:57
according to wiki gabby is still a free agent. not a surprise really.


6.) 10 Aug 2018 08:54:58
Gabby in Turkish league?! I heard it was all just a PIPE Dream! UTV.


 

 

20 Jul 2018 16:16:02
Since these two are worth at least £8 billion plus between them, does this mean we don't have to sell Jack, assuming he still wants to stay?

MenaceDortimer

1.) 20 Jul 2018 17:49:32
If they can get around ffp we don't have to. Need to sponsor the stand s or something and sell dead wood.

Effin Norwich - can't be trusted to do anything right. How can you capitulate two goals in the last 4 minutes of the game? Muppets : (.

Can't predict the score tonight though, suffice to say, Leeds have only won one of their last five though they are in a similar league position to Norwich and we all know what happened there. Given that we're at home, I'll go for a 2-0 win.

My abiding memory of Leeds matches in days gone by was playing them in the League Cup at Elland Road in September 1980. We won 3-1 (4-1 on aggregate) but, on leaving the ground, the mental Leeds fans were waiting to ambush us. Having chased us around Holbeck for a bit, the police finally segregated us off and escorted us back to the station and, for our own safety, insisting on putting us on a non-stop 'footie special' directly back to New Street. Trouble was, I was living in Sheffield at the time and had only travelled the half-hour up the M1 for the game. What a logistical nightmare that was trying to get back home again from Brum in the middle of the night!

1.) 13 Apr 2018 13:05:01
I love your post Menace, cracked me right up.
Loved your story about your problems with Leeds fans then getting back home from Brum.
But the best has to be the first part of your post, you said you can`t predict the score tonight and in the next breath you go for a 2 – 0 win for Villa.
Love it all Menace hahaha.


2.) 13 Apr 2018 21:41:26
Well Dave, at least I was half right on the score ;)


3.) 13 Apr 2018 21:52:31
And I suddenly feel a great affinity for Brentford - at least for tomorrow .


4.) 13 Apr 2018 22:09:57
Let you off with the score mate.
Agree about Brentford, sure would make things very exiting.

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 .

BBC WebSite this morning reporting that Redknapp has made a firm offer to Terry stating ' we would love him in Birmingham'. Yes we would, but not playing for Small Heath Alliance .

Flackie - do my ears deceive me or did you just describe a Leicester player as 'Perfect'? I'd go and have a lie down if I was you.

I would agree. Time to go Stevie. With reference to the comments below about overall fitness etc., I think there was only one person up at Bodymoor last season who was kicking the backsides of all the players in terms of fitness and motivation - and his name was Terry not Bruce.

We'll bring Mickey Mouse on in a minute and put the whole thing into perspective in terms of what's important to this great club. Remember the useless Inter-Toto cup anyone?

When we win against the Tractor Boys, it will be the first time we'll have won our opening three league matches of a season since 1962-63. I'd like to think we'd go top of the league, but I can't see Leeds slipping up against Rotherham.

Interesting result so far:

Exit (33%, 13 votes)
Remain (67%, 26 votes)

If he does go, I can' see that replacing him with someone with no management experience (such as Henry) would be very helpful.
