Understand that Hutton will not be retained at the end of his current contract.
Some have given him a lot of stick in the past.
Hutton has never shirked a challenge, always a 100% player.
Personally I hope he gets a good offer from another club.
Forget the "bomb" squad, if asked to play in goal he would have done it.
A proper pro, very few about.

Agree 100% about Hutton
Great pro
Took stick over the years here but came back stronger than ever to prove how important he is to the team.
All the best where ever you go at end of season,
Puts the likes of gabby and Richards to shame.


2.) 31 Jan 2018 10:54:41
I’m gutted that this is happening.
Might not be the most skilled player we seen at vp, but definitely the most committed.


3.) 31 Jan 2018 11:33:32
Hutton commitment is his middle name.

CREVELLI.
Are we really looking at a striker who hardly ever scores?
We have one but he now plays in Oz and generally fans don't want him back. I know that he is seen as a lazy sod but he is scoring, albeit in a third grade league.
Should we pursue this new name and hope or just walk away?

Oldvillan

1.) 25 Jan 2018 09:20:44
Walk away simply!

I'm bored.
Christmas day, everyone full of joy and food and the odd shandy.
WtW has found a coupLe of friends or should that be fiends?
Ok, if we fail to win tomorrow and JT misses a few more games could we back to the winter spiral?
However if the worst happens (we don't make even the play offs) the Dr will save money as JT bonus of £2m is only payable on promotion.

Serious stuff.
The way the defence played on Saturday will Bruce bring back Elphick (god help us) and stick the bearded wonder back in front of the back line.
Oh how I wish Mcgrath was there for us now.
Hogan needs some one to push the ball through the defenders, he didn't become poor because he signed for AVFC.

Too much interplay, not enough on target shots. SB seems to believe Arsene Wenger philosophy of the perfect goal.
Get the ball forward and I don't care if it ain't pretty. Both of the Blades goals were long punts that ended up in our net.
We can do that! Hogan can do that!
Change the plan, surprise the opposition, we have to be fluid not stagnant.
A draw tomorrow will not do.
3 pts is a must.

Watching the game tonight worst villa team I seen in years bring back the team of the late 90s into dressing room show them how a team played after 70 min went off to watch coronation street with my family as I said worst team time for change.

{Ed007's Note - Corrie's not much better but at least wee Carla's back.}

Would Shane Long be a good fit?
Scores frequently every where that he has played.
Could possibly buy him if we shift some of the non appearing players.

Oldvillan

1.) 03 Dec 2017 17:10:05
Shane Long still has a house in, I believe the Sutton area. A mate of mine fully decorated it in the summer as they thought he was heading back to the Midlands in last transfer window. Perhaps it will now hapeen.


2.) 03 Dec 2017 17:30:09
Like Hogan, he might not fit the system.


3.) 04 Dec 2017 15:55:52
Shane Long is £20M striker all day long, I'd swap him for Kodjia in a heartbeat

UTV.


4.) 04 Dec 2017 18:52:43
I wouldn't say he scores frequently. He scores 0.2 goals a game in his career. But yes he's a decent player and works hard. Wouldn't swap him for kodjia and if we ever paid more than 8m for him I'd feel robbed.


5.) 04 Dec 2017 21:07:26
I wouldn’t swap him for Kodjia because he’s not the right style of striker an it would be a waste of time.


6.) 05 Dec 2017 15:55:19
I didn't mean literally swap him lol, I'd rather him than Kodjia in as much as he's a team player and not a selfish player, selfish worked for Shearer and works for Kane, Kodjia ain't nowhere near their standard. As an aside, didn't Bruce sign Long for Hull? So he fancies Long, not literally again lol?

UTV.


7.) 06 Dec 2017 18:05:38
Yes he did.
How about Long for Hogan+++.


 

 

03 Dec 2017 14:49:26
According to reports Bruce is looking at McBurnie from Swansea on a loan deal.
Is he worth it or should we be looking at proven strikers who regularly appear on the score sheets when they get a game.
Now I don't trawl through the team sheets etc of other clubs but are a lot of players that merely keep a seat on the bench reserved for them.

Unlikely to get them but the likes of Austin, and Murray should be on the radar.
However Gayle could be a target.
We need the poacher that will fit in with our "style" of play.
Hogan seems lost in our ranks as we don't play to his, big John does what he wants ànd Gayle, Austin and Murray could be a fit.

Let us not get another no name that merely gets on the pitch.
We are all aware thar "fair play" comes into play but surely as we are now looking reasonable we could entice aa recognised player to join us?

Oldvillan

1.) 03 Dec 2017 17:32:11
Bit weird you said look at players that “merely keep a seat on the bench” and then go on to name 3 players that all started and scored in the premier league this weekend.


2.) 04 Dec 2017 10:17:33
The 3 names don't merly get on the pitch they play.
The post said "not merely sit on the bench."
McBurnie sits on the bench, sometimes.
We need scorers that get at least a goal in every two games they play.
A simple add on, Palace look doomed and Benteke is not doing anything. Would we take him back should the opportunity arise? Fair play or fee could prove a stumbling block.


3.) 05 Dec 2017 17:43:55
We brought in 3 proven strikers last year, one is in Aus and 2 are out for most the season.

Talented younger players on the way up is what we should look at.

The Championship has changed. Teams with young dynamic players and managers are doing very well.

As an aside to the coming event against the dark side, I have been wondering if the BC ladies just might be a better than the men's team.
Just a thought!

Best business in January, keeping hold of Johnson.
Could have gone where ever.
We have a need now to plan for life in the prem, not certain, but need to prepare.
Many of the squad are ok for champs but would be caught short in the prem.
We bought players to get us out of the champs, not players to keep us in the prem. The forward planning during the yanks years was non ex instant and it is clear that we are now 5 years in arrears.
Some young blood has come in to support the youth we have but not enough.
Hopefully money will be available in the summer to keep us in the prem.

Lots of supposition regarding who Bruce will try to get in as striker.
Looking logically and economically the wee Scot is moving up the list of possibilities. He is here, we are paying him, he has scored a bucketful of goals.
Bruce can keep him to use if we get injuries or if we are strolling then stick him on for the last 10 mins.
Sturidge, Welbeck nor Deany heading our way.
Possible Gayle, Marriot or my old Mom.
Don't hold your breath. When I was annoying she never missed!

I know that McCormack doesn't deserve it but we need a backup striker and we don't have the money to buy one.
Let him stay with us as an emergency player as on occasions he did perform.
Bruce has stated that he will not accept pocket money for him so he will still be on the books.
Keep him in the squad, train with the squad and let's see what happens.
We have changed our formation and seen improvement in the whole team. Could the change suit McCormack?
Unless real money comes in then use him. We don't know why all the other rubbish took place but something went on.
Lazy, miserable, bad attitude but this could be a number of players.
Keep him, we are paying him, and if by chance he was in the team for our promotion game and scored, the more reasonable posters would be over the moon. The others would still rather have him skinned alive.
Me, it's not about us, it's about getting back in the prem with whatever we have, even using McCormack if needed.
I now await the torrent of abuse that will surely follow by the less tolerant.
Promotion is the sole objective. Personal likes and dislikes are of no consequence.

Oldvillan

1.) 26 Jan 2018 12:11:51
I would do exactly that, we know he can score goals, if he wants out make him earn it.
Surely the more goals he scores the better for Villa, also he would attract more interest from a wider range of clubs, does he not realise that.
We are not going to get anything like the money we paid for him until he starts performing, so get on with it man up and prove yourself McCormack, the GATES are open for you.


2.) 26 Jan 2018 13:22:55
Common sense from Old Villan again 👍🏻

3.) 26 Jan 2018 13:27:21
Everyone deserves a second chance and if we can’t afford a striker, McCormack is one of the best the league has ever seen. He’s scoring for fun, albeit in a poor league but it isn’t that bad. I remember 3 times very clearly, under both Bruce and Di Matteo when Kodjia took a shot under pressure when McCormack was free for a tap in, into an open goal, the most prominent being leeds at home. I still think if he had been given the ball in them 3 situations that’s an extra 6 points for us and it would of saved his villa career. His attitude was obviously poor however he seems to be back on track, whether it’s because he’s got no distractions over there or what not I don’t know but the way he plays he’d thrive in this team and there isn’t many better back up options in this league. However I can’t see this happening, just don’t think him and Bruce will be able to put things behind them.


4.) 26 Jan 2018 14:51:55
Like we need another bad apple in the camp get rid I say.


5.) 26 Jan 2018 15:17:20
Bang their heads together because neither of them is bigger than us going up this year

UTV.


6.) 26 Jan 2018 20:08:25
Daz, we don't have the readies but we do have a goal scorer.
Bruce needs to sort the problem so THAT AVFC can move forward and upwards.
McCormack may have had time to think and realise that he was a total arse.
We need a goal scorer, he may not get a chance if Hogan can keep his form, and we have one doing jack.
We are paying him, let's use him.
Promotion is the goal by any means!


7.) 26 Jan 2018 23:37:05
Understand your sentiments Old Villian but even Heskey tore that league up and he was 35 when he was there mate I'm not disagreeing with you he does have goals in him but his attitude stinks his off the pitch antics stink and for me we have enough of them in the squad without adding to it we are going along nicely at the moment without him causing anymore mayhem he don't suit the club and we don't suit him just like Collymore attitude is everything maybe a swap or another loan to maybe Sunderland might suit and just for my last statement didn't the club he loves and they loved him turn him down again AKA Fulham for me that says a lot mate.


8.) 27 Jan 2018 09:32:49
Don’t thinj thwy turned him down to be honest, papers came out saying their manager wanted him, it never happened, so papers said they turned him down. Then him and all his old teams mates came out saying it wasn’t BS that they didn’t want want I’m back etc.


9.) 27 Jan 2018 16:00:40
Be carefull what you wish for folks! Would you put the stabillity and good feeling running through the dressing room at risk. At a crucial point in the season when we are making that all important push. i'm all for people getting second chances and if the attitude he has, has changed by all means give him the chance. personaly i don't think it has. Its a big risk that could unsettle the squad .


10.) 27 Jan 2018 18:17:44
Don't you think a senior player like Terry could sort this out?

UTV.


11.) 28 Jan 2018 13:53:03
Terry may well be able to sort it out. On the other hand would mccfartface undermine him, he certainly tried to undermine the manager. That said looks like ulloa is of to brighton so maybe he may get that chance. There is talk of magoldrick from ipswich though not prolific but steady and with a better attitude.

It won't be a walk over.
The dark side always raise their game just for us.
We could settle for a point but three are needed.
Not impossible but it will not be pretty. No room for fancy stuff, efficient and decisive should make the day.
As long as they don't play their ladies team we should do the job.

How about a deal?
Murray + £5m for Davis?
Murray scores on a regular basis, Davis holds the ball up.
Currently we need goals.
Davis is still raw but we need a finisher.

Sat in a bar in Spain with the BCFC supporters club, both of them, and being told that they were going to stuff us out of sight.
Cahill went up like the space shuttle and they all went home.

Possibly the best uncapped keeper in the business.
Another player that won the cup in 57 was Stan Lynn, RB, with a shot that present day players could never get close too.
Some years ago I met a guy that played for us in the 50's, Joe Tyrell and he told me that Stan was so short sighted he could only see the shirt colours.
And finally, Nigel and Stan would have session after training, just the two of them. Stan at full power and Nigel stopping a big percentage of the shots.
A team of 110% players.
My hero's, my era!
