So stan collymore pipes up in twitter slating how we have spent obscene amount of money since Dr Xia arrived

And how hogan isn't work the 9million rising to 12 million we are apparently paying

Tell you what Stan . pipe down, you talk crap about everyone when actually you was one of the biggest let downs to play for Us

Cost 7million in 1997 and scored 15 goals in 3 seasons

Now that's an obscene amount of money for nothing in return . so Stan pipe down you clown


1.) 31 Jan 2017 16:28:10
Mate he's just sour, because he's not involved with the club and we are on the up!

2.) 31 Jan 2017 16:53:12
Bang on Villa Ken! I remember collywobble being the biggest waist of money I had ever seen. He moaned about depression whilst earning £25,000 per week which at the time was mega and still is! Shut your big trap Stan let's thank the Doc not pull him to bits! Who do you think you are!?



26 Jan 2017 14:29:13
According to SSN there have been bids from other clubs for scott hogan

Hope we're one of them as he looks a good player

McCormack wants to move back to London . I would offer McCormack plus the Gestede money for hogan

See if we can get it done!


1.) 26 Jan 2017 17:27:42
I'd love to sign him aswell but would we need him? So far we've gone with 1 up top so unless we're playing Kodija out wide again don't see him getting off the bench!



23 Jan 2017 21:58:27
So Sheffield Wednesday are after Rhodes

They really do have a quality strike force presently, adding to it would surely make a bit of a conundrum for them as to how they would fit all there strikers into the same team .

I have said it before and will say it again but maybe a bid for forestieri should be made with him playing in behind Kodjia that would be quality!

I would also try wells from Huddersfield!

Also if Hull would sell to us I think Hernandez is quality but it would take £20 million to get him . Should we sell the poison dwarf then he should also be an option.


1.) 23 Jan 2017 22:06:31
Yes Ken, but we have all said the same for weeks mate.
Nothing new there, its all old ground.

2.) 23 Jan 2017 22:09:20
Maybe SB reads these pages Dave and takes a mental note 📝

3.) 23 Jan 2017 22:21:24
Spot on Ken good point mate.

4.) 23 Jan 2017 22:21:22
All good stuff kenn I agree but it's all been said on here for weeks, hopefully we find some quality to help kodja but with Akpom being mentioned it doesn't fill anyone with confidence. However give Bruce his due his been brilliant so far this window, maybe timing a bit poor but has found absolute bargains and refused to let us be mugged off, so if McCormack goes I'm sure he will sign some quality.

5.) 23 Jan 2017 22:45:57
Rhodes is never worth the £8 million Wednesday are reportedly about to bid and Bruce was right to pull out. Can we afford another Mcormack situation having paid over the odds for an average Player. The press will say Wednesday beat Villa to the signing but in reality Villa had first refusal. Well done Steve Bruce.



21 Jan 2017 14:48:21
So team news is Lansbury starts along side land crab .

McCormack and jedinack don't even make the 18! And gabby is the only recognised striker besides your Davies .

There was no injurys mentioned by Bruce in yesterday's press conference

Could McCormack be off?

Also hogan has been left out the Brentford squad


1.) 21 Jan 2017 17:45:07
hogan off to westham



20 Jan 2017 12:06:43
So Stevie Bruce has said that Rhodes won't be coming .

Can't say I'm too disappointed .

Maybe Rhodes will end up at Sheffield Wednesday, who have also brought Winnel from Barnsley . they also have Steven Fletcher and Fernando Forestieri

I would certainly put a bid if for forestieri as he is quality.


1.) 20 Jan 2017 12:22:11
That's a shout mate he is like a Championship Sanchez. As in the one from Arsenal not the one we loaned out.

2.) 20 Jan 2017 13:09:23
They've also got hooper!

3.) 20 Jan 2017 13:41:06
He's just signed a new contract at Wednesday if I'm right?


4.) 20 Jan 2017 15:22:35
Think your right allyp, but contracts in football are worthless as money talks

5.) 20 Jan 2017 15:49:54
Ulloa would be my first choice.

Hogan off injured! Wow the boy is a sick note.




07 Jul 2017 14:59:23
Brentford are apparently selling Jota to a premier league club for 8m

Now there is a bargain .

Get shut of veretout if he doesn't want to play and use the funds for Jota . Quality player.




24 Jun 2017 18:59:42
Will Hughes has gone to Watford for 4.5m rising to 7m

That is an absolute bargain!


1.) 24 Jun 2017 20:27:39
Unfortunately he's not a player we need but is a good player. We need eg some1 to play a kante role but we cannot buy anybody really until we sell because we over spent last season.



19 Jan 2017 12:45:50
We're clearly after a new striker, for me Rhodes although prolific isn't an upgrade on Gestede .

Clearly the lad can score but not the way we play, not a crossing team .

Personally i would prefer Scott Hogan although the lure of premiership football with West Ham is more attractive than us

Failing that I would go for Nakhi Wells from Huddersfield. Quick and direct would be perfect for counter attacking style and would compliment Kodjia


1.) 19 Jan 2017 13:50:45
Bang on Ken we need more pace up front and definitely not another donkey plodder! Gestede is never worth £6 million in a trillion years £4 mil tops . Rhodes possibly £6 mil tops. Problem is they all know Villa have cash so £6mil becomes £12 mil

2.) 19 Jan 2017 14:08:14
Apparently wells is stalling on a new contract .

Huddersfield want 8 million for him

3.) 19 Jan 2017 19:10:49
Wells would be great signing like a young gabby full of energy

4.) 19 Jan 2017 19:26:14
Pace and can hit the back of the net

5.) 19 Jan 2017 20:06:23
We need more or a presence than Wells imo, Rhodes is a huge upgrade on gustede but I also don't think he's the answer, not quick enough to be considered a pacey striker and not big enough to be a target man, more of an all rounder. That being said he could turn out to be the answer and no matter what he will be 1000 times better than Gabby.

6.) 19 Jan 2017 21:36:35
A strikers job is to score, Rhodes knows his job, file under Lineker, Kerry Dixon, Darren Bent etc.


7.) 20 Jan 2017 09:14:44
get lansbury and this kid from Barnsley into the side and we will create a hell of a lot more and mccormack will look at different player. rohdes will do the same even gabby might get 2 by end of season it's all about creating chances which we have not been doing. simple as that.

8.) 20 Jan 2017 09:41:53
Allyp I agree but maybe someone should tell that to Ross McCormack!

I know we're not playing the best style to suite him but even so he has been a very poor acquisition IMO

9.) 20 Jan 2017 11:14:32
McCormack is probably a D- so far this season, maybe with more chances created he will come good, and a set position that he'll play in, and for gods sake back him, not get on his back.



15 Jan 2017 17:43:28
Oh my dear god Bob!

Never in all my days have I heard such a load of tripe

I don't sometimes agree with some of Steve Bruce's ideas or substitutions however he is putting a team out which has not been assembled by him . and is trying his best to make the best of a bad bunch

Gollini was error prone so he shipped him out .

He took elphick out the team and put in baker and were more solid at the back .

He plays gabby as what else is there especially as Kodjia is at afcon

As for serving up the worst football well that is two fold .

We don't have the players in midfield to play expansive football .

We may be serving up the worst football possible but when we have the team on the pitch we currently have are you surprised .

Look at the players we have been linked with

Bree the RB

I also think we need another CB as elphick is not good enough and baker is injury prone

All of the above are better than we have got . and to be fair if we could get them would vastly change the way we are playing football at present

but maybe we should just keep sacking managers until we have spent another 100 million and are playing like Real Madrid!


1.) 15 Jan 2017 18:28:02
Well said kenn

2.) 15 Jan 2017 18:48:48
Posted last week that we need a new spine in the team to transform the spineless team.
We have a new keeper but now a fresh centre back, a universal FULL back to help the back row, in the 60's they called him the sweeper. Nearest we ever got was the legend Mcgrath.
At least 3 extra in the middle with imagination and as hard as nails.
Then in the front an old fashioned 9 to bag the ball.
Too many pretty attempts, none on Saturday, to get goals.
Need to get down and dirty to grind a goal.
No left out prem bargains unless Charlie Adam wants to come.
I can't believe that our team are so far off the track.
Come on SB you are the chosen one!

3.) 15 Jan 2017 20:05:11
Adam wants to come? Can't find that anywhere but would be great for us 👍🏻 As for a 'sweeper' Jedinak is pretty much doing that job, leave him to do that and not expect any more from him, Adam and Lansbury as forward thinking midfielders that track back when needed, then any permutation of 3 up front, that's a 443, Kodjia being the obvious No9, a No10/ winger, 2 wingers, 2 No10s etc.

there should be plenty of creativity and goals there surely? Hoolihane and Cainey would work too, just giving examples of who would work for us, in the short term we need a striker too, take your pick out of who we've been linked with?


4.) 15 Jan 2017 20:16:35
He said unless he wants to come!
Meaning he would be only fringe player he would take

5.) 15 Jan 2017 20:52:32
Unless Charlie Adam wants to come not Charlie Adam wants to come.

6.) 15 Jan 2017 21:34:24
So do WE want Charlie Adam to come then? I woulda gone for him last summer, good solid player that you know what you're going to get with him. and name a centre mid we have at Villa that is better than him and what he gives to a team? A lot of players we are linked to are a gamble, Adam gets goals, got a mean streak, perfect for the division we're in


7.) 15 Jan 2017 22:54:35
Me? I would in a heart beat!

8.) 16 Jan 2017 08:58:25
It's the mean streak that I like!

I would prefer us to not sign snodgrass .

Not because he isn't a good player, but i believe that green will be better and should play 30+ games this season.

So last night we was shocking and toothless .

I have openly said prior that managers should be given a chance prior to getting the bullet . However I must agree with most on here that the time is now for change .

We are toothless in attack with no ambition in the attacking areas .

I do believe that with Kodjia and Hogan we have two of the best strikers in the league but there is not movement, killer passes and conviction in our play .

I also believe that gabby is a bad luck omen for villa . As every time he plays we play poorly!

Personally i would like to see one of the three below given a chance as they are young and aspiring managers

Paul Heckinbottam - young, plays bright progressive football, managed to get the best out of Hourihane which meant Barnsley scored goals for fun last season

Lee Johnson - again like heckinbottom plays football the right way . managed Kodjia very well also

Tim Sherwood - he has unfinished business and certainly had the passion . Just. It sure if we should ever go back.

Do you ever stop?

The club have stated that they are building 3 teams

One for promotion out of the championship
One to stay in the premier league
And the third to kick on once we have secured premier league status

Championship clubs can lose a maximum of 13million in one season . But don't forget we have parachute payments

Premier league clubs can lose 105 million over 3 years but this is also dependant on new TV deals and also promotion payment for getting back to the premier league .

For once just stop moaning about everything villa related . Tony Xia is a young man who had made millions out of business ventures he is no ones fool so trust the man to come good and stop moaning.

I wouldn't be surprised if baker asked to go!

He has probably had his nose pushed out and realises he is behind terry, samba and Chester

Gabby, richards and Bacuna really need to go.

Welcome to the party oh math god 👍

But I agree with you . Ultimately we have a team capable of promotion in my opinion just need a few tweeks here and there.

I'm agreeing with you bob on quiet a lot of posts recently .

i posted around two months ago that we don't need to spend a fortune to get out this division .

Look at the promoted clubs last season, take Newcastle out the equation and Brighton and Huddersfield both got
promoted on a shoe string.

We're all VTID here, we all want the best for our club!

If I have offended anyone on here then you really shouldn't take life so seriously . 😂

Banter is great and certainly better than the football we are playing . I have said it before and I will say it again that positivity breeds positivity .

Our club was bad to the very core during the Lerner era . and the result was a club in the doldrums, we need to stick together and be positive then let this see where it leads us.

Maybe I would look at either Lee Johnson from Bristol city or Carlos carvahal from Sheffield Wednesday to replace Brucie once WTW gets him the sack 👍.
