The first three players I would try and secure before others start sniffing are Mings, Maupay, and Roofe.
The reason I am urging for Maupay is that I feel he would be a better option than Tammy, "Ouch"
As pointed out by a couple of other posters, although a useful player, and I thank him for his contribution to us, tammy has not impressed on a few occasions and depends a lot on supply.

I honestly feel that Maupay has a bit more mobility and creativity in him therefore would not be so reliant on a service to him.
We could then start filling in holes where we need.

I agree with you about Mings and Maupay.

Not so sure about Roofe as I think there is better other options than him.

How about Rongier?

2.) 05 Jun 2019 16:25:09
I agree with Mings and Maupay . not sure about Roofe

I think we need two strikers To be brought in

not sure about Abraham, don’t get me wrong he has been superb for us this season but never made it in the premiere league as yet .

If Chelsea would sell him, I think Michy Batshuayi is a better option . Scored 7 goals in 11 appearances
for Palace and at 23 is a little bit more mature than Abraham .

If Abraham will cost 25m then maybe Batshuayi will be around 30-35m

Just and option.

3.) 05 Jun 2019 17:57:33
Rongier and Batshuayi are both great shouts and would not complain one bit if we got either, Roofe was just another that when I have seen him looks very useful.
there are so many names going around.
But I will stick with Maupay, he is a no brainer for me.

4.) 05 Jun 2019 18:02:25
Like the others I agree with all but Roofe - I'm not convinced he's at the level to make the required impact to keep us in the Prem.
I actually think we'd have enough with Davis, one of either Abraham/ Maupay and someone like Benteke who would suit our style of play.
Given that we're likely to only play with one proper front man, I think arguably the most important signings will be real quality wingers/ attacking midfielders. Hopefully Jota is seen as more of a squad player and we make a real statement on that front.
Obviously the squad needs improving all over too but it sounds like we're making a go of it this year so fingers crossed.

Our new signing Frederic Guilbert will be at wembley tomorrow to watch us.




28 Nov 2018 22:59:48
I am very confident Deano has seen our defensive frailties and will address them as soon as he is able to, our defence is very poor at the moment, but I must say Nyland was very poor tonight.
I admit I have defended him over the last few weeks and felt he needed time to settle, tonight was dreadful and I was shocked at his decision making and positioning.

It was a great game to watch and for the neutrals, but not good for the nerves of us Villa fans, especially my age.
I wonder if Deano will give Bunn a couple of games just to steady the ship a bit and to take a bit of pressure of Nyland.
Going forward we are looking very good, and our overall play is much better.
Another lesson tonight, if you are direct and speculate you will eventually get rewards, forests forth goal is testimony to that.

So if Martinez was to come in, would that mean Henry would be his number 2.
The plot thickens.


1.) 08 Oct 2018 20:15:36
Id have Martinez good manager and he knows the championship.

2.) 09 Oct 2018 17:49:02
Villa4ever make your mind up you wanted Brendon Rodgers yesterday now it’s Martinez and before that it was Henry who will you want tomorrow coco the clown.
I’m just glad you’re not in the decision making as your always posting absolute nonsense all the time and supporters who may post on here aren’t going to because it’s a circus.
You are to this forum what Diane Abbot is to economics and mathematics lol.



07 Oct 2018 16:48:22
It seems this rumour about Henry and Terry is gaining momentum, and is not going away.
This could be very exiting if true.
I know it would not guarantee success, but we would have arguably the best striker and defender we have seen in this country for the last 20years.
If this happens I hope we can keep the likes of Delaney and McDonald at the club, I say this because they are Villa through and through, and there is very little wrong with our reserve and youth set up.
I am sure a roll for Stan Petrov could be found on the coaching side of things, that would give us a set up that has it all.
I think it would be nice to show Stan a bit of faith, after all he was a gladiator for us in midfield.


1.) 07 Oct 2018 17:03:03
I’d love that Dave. I hope they make an announcement soon, so who ever it is has this break to try and add some positivity to the club.

2.) 07 Oct 2018 17:26:38
Agree surely there's a coaching role Stan could do, I hope these rumours are true about jt n henry, the players would listen to those 2 there winners, Brendan Rodgers would be good, either i'm a happy bunny 😁😁.

We are hearing a lot of talk about Butland being a target.
I would like to see us keep faith in Steer, he was instrumental in our run up to promotion, so I think he should be given a chance.
Also I would not be surprised to see Andre Green move on.
I get the feeling he is not what Deano wants, tends to be injury prone, and spends a lot of time in and out of games.


1.) 11 Jun 2019 23:08:20
I don’t think green is that great to be honest. definitely think we need better for the prem. squad player at best imo.

2.) 12 Jun 2019 08:46:52
I agree with green, has one good game in 5. Age on his side though.

3.) 12 Jun 2019 11:52:25
sending green out on loan to a mid table championship side next season could benefit us, crazy thought but how about throwing him in on loan for the season in any benrahma deal, instantly replacing a player they have lost would surely sweeten any deal.

4.) 12 Jun 2019 18:47:14
Very good idea that.



10 Jun 2019 14:40:43
I have just been watching Guilbert on you tube like somebody on here recommended.
He looks quality, gets forward, likes a tackle, and can cross a ball well.
He looks a very useful player, he is young, and judging by his last club he is also very loyal.


1.) 10 Jun 2019 23:46:22
Let's hope he follows up the YouTube clips like el ghazi has more than tonev did.



08 Jun 2019 18:29:04
Hi Chris, I said I would get back to you when the dust had settled.
I know that some of the players mentioned below are similar, but you do need a few more options available to you in the premiership, sorry mate no "Benteke".
If we had most of the players below, I am sure we wold be one of the most direct teams in the country.
Move out :- Hogan, Kodjia, Bjarnason, Lansbury, Tshibola, etc
Tyrone Mings
Leighton Baines (free)
Kortney Hause
Moussa Niakhate (Mainz)

Forwards/ Midfield
El Ghazi
Keymar Roofe
Neil Maupay
Jared Bowen
Bradley Dack
Valentin Rongier
Jonjo Shelvey.


1.) 08 Jun 2019 20:17:26
Alright Dave, that Rongier looks a right player. Think we’ll need minimum 10 in after we get rid of some more. I’d probably say:
A Keeper: steer was a hero but the two challenging him were shocking when they had the number 1 shirt so it’s not exactly healthy competition, Timo Horn who plays for Koln in Germany has just been promoted back to their first top league but from what I’ve seen he should never have been in the second division in the first place. Don’t know if he’d come maybe he’s a boyhood fan but worth a try.
A leftback: Taylor is probably good enough for back up but need a fresh face in, to fit the style they probably need to be able to play a bit not just defend, Dasilva who was at Bristol last year on loan would be a cheap option but if they want to go for it see if you can get Danny Rose out of spurs, still in his prime, doesn’t play as much as he should.
Left sided centre back: easy, Mings.
Right sided centre back: Chester killed himself for us last year and age is catching up, if we can get tuanzebe we need someone just as athletic, Pavard at Stuttgart, they aren’t pulling up any trees haven’t got Europe, he’s young fresh, maybe ambitious but wait until we’ve made a few of the other signings and maybe be able to tempt him.
Left mid: El Ghazi, keeping part of the promotion team, used to smith and co, getting better and better.
Centre mid: depends what they want really, defensive player I like your shout of Shelvey, or maybe go abroad for Sangare at Toulouse, again no Europe, we can probably offer better wages. But then if we want a ball player then Rongier seems the best option.
Right mid: go foreign, go big, match winner, maybe Oyarzabal at Sociedad, failing that I really like Jarrod Bowen.
Striker: Maxi Gomez, maybe because we was mentioned with him the other day, and probably massively dreaming but Celta Vigo struggled last year maybe give him a route to the prem.

All the players mentioned are young and hungry, we are in a brilliant position now with all the oldies on big wages gone, we must capitalise. All the foreign players I think are just about feasible, due to their teams not being in Europe, maybe struggling last year or other circumstances.

No matter who we sign, in Smith we trust, he showed at Brentford he can find players to suit his system and get the working well!

And the people working behind Smith on transfers gave us Hause and Mings in January, so no reason not to trust them!

2.) 08 Jun 2019 20:55:45
Hi mate, some good noises there chris.
Like you I think we are in great hands now and support anything the club does.
None of us will like everyone they bring in but hey people do grow on you, ask my wife.



07 Jun 2019 17:28:10
This is just a thought.
I don`t know what you lads think, but wouldn't it make sense if Hogan was thrown into any deal we might do with Brentford concerning Maupay.
It seems logical to me, would they accept 10 mil pus Hogan?


1.) 07 Jun 2019 18:57:34
Very good shout.

2.) 07 Jun 2019 23:35:39
Very good shout, that Dave . Hogan definitely not Premier Quality. Axel and Mings are the two I want, we need big strong athletic defenders, in the Premier
Onwards&Upwards Villaforever.

3.) 08 Jun 2019 00:14:30
We don't want maupay, there's better players out there than him.

4.) 08 Jun 2019 09:25:13
Your like a petulant school kid vill4eva Vardy was given a chance by Leicester and look how he flourished Maupay might and he might not make it in the big time its called a squad for a reason!

5.) 08 Jun 2019 09:58:07
I think maupay has all the attributes to be a good prem centre forward. Looking at the released lists I’d consider Cahill, moreno, wellbeck and possibly even sturridge.



03 Jun 2019 22:33:03
Thank you Mr Purslow for getting rid of the parasite.
He has made me look a bloody fool with all the praise I heaped on him when he came.
Glad to see the back of him.

Danny Mills knows jack sh.
There would be room for both McGinn and Phillips if we sign him.
I would play McGinn in a more advanced roll, where I think he does more damage anyway.
Problem solved.
I just wish these so called experts would shut up, I think Ronaldo is a better all round player than Messi, others would disagree.

Don`t believe everything you read mate, we are being linked to all and sundry at the moment, its like owning a satnav you have to use your own common sense at times.
And to be fair I think you calling the Villa hierarchy boneheads is very unfair after all that has been achieved by them.
Don`t become one of the few on here who complains about everything that the management do just because you don`t agree with it.

Not sure how to respond to that remark Djb.
Don`t you think Deano knows what we need?
Remember that all players start and progress from novice status and some mature into great players when others don`t.
And as far as signing proven premier league players, that would not guarantee anything, N`zogbia, M Richards, J Lescott, T Cleverley spring to mind.
Deano and the club will bring in players who they feel will bond and do a job as a team, that will take time, some we buy will fit in, others won`t and we have to understand that.
We have weeks to get people in, be patient all and enjoy all the speculation it`s great fun.
You say in your post in Dean we trust, “show it then”.
