Confirmed, Grabbon signs.




31 Jan 2018 18:06:25
Deal agreed for Grabban.
Season loan.


1.) 31 Jan 2018 18:37:55
12 goals in a poor Sunderland side, good addition, something different off the bench.

2.) 31 Jan 2018 19:02:15
I would go 442 now.

3.) 31 Jan 2018 19:23:39
I can’t find the deal done anywhere. are you sure?

4.) 31 Jan 2018 19:34:38
I have said deal agreed Flackie, on sky sports.

5.) 31 Jan 2018 19:52:52
It is listed at 16.36 at the transfer centre.

6.) 31 Jan 2018 20:05:22
Ive herd rumour defoe has been seen in birmingham this evening.

7.) 31 Jan 2018 20:50:10
Dave I see that now, thank you!
But I’m assuming it’s not gone through as not anywhere else?

8.) 31 Jan 2018 21:09:41
Everyone reported done earlier, Birmingham Mail, sky, Alan Nixon, but then BBC WM at the same time tweeted saying they’d been told the deal isn’t close to being done, weird one.

9.) 01 Feb 2018 09:14:21
Grabban looks a ok signing,
He is a journey man with so many clubs but we could be his team to get him to settle
Some reading up on him seems me to think he could have a attitude problem but we will wait and see on that,
But he scores goals at end of day and that's why we got him
No better time to start than against Burton on Saturday,



21 Nov 2017 16:54:59
Just a rumour,
Villa have been contacted by Shamrock Rovers for Kevin Toner.
Shamrock have held talks about a possible deal for the 21-year-old defender.
He is currently on a season-long loan with Stevenage.
And his contract is up at Villa Park at the end of the season.


1.) 21 Nov 2017 23:30:47
Barely makes the Stevenage team and was awful both loan spells he had last term, get rid.

2.) 22 Nov 2017 20:36:39
Could be left back cover though? Would like to see Borg given a try though




20 Apr 2017 23:17:39
Just heard Ugo Ehiogu has had suspected heart attack at spuds training ground today.


1.) 21 Apr 2017 09:43:08
RIP big man. Sad news.

2.) 21 Apr 2017 10:35:41
Holte Ender in the sky.

3.) 21 Apr 2017 10:36:35

4.) 21 Apr 2017 12:17:16
Was a loyal villain an great defender for us and probably should of represented his country more than 4 times. RIP big man.



31 Jan 2017 15:28:32
Scott Hogan agrees personal terms, medical passed, should be completed soon.

Hi Ed, had problems getting on the site today, in fact could not get on at all.
Do you know of any reason why that should be.
I kept getting warnings about giving personal details.


{Ed001's Note - we are having some server issues dave. It is a number of sites that are having the same issues so we think we will have to move the sites on this server onto a new one.}

1.) 02 May 2018 18:38:57
Ok Ed, thank`s for that mate.
I had sweaty palms and the shakes when I could not get on.

{Ed001's Note - are you sure that wasn't the excuse you were using when your missus caught you watching porn.....again? No, honest love my palms are just sweaty and I have the shakes. No, really darling I just couldn't get onto the football site I use.}

2.) 02 May 2018 19:01:24
haha, Shush Ed, Shush.

{Ed001's Note - it's ok mate, we understand, we have all had the 'shakes' from time to time when the other half is looking away...nudge, nudge, wink, wink.}



21 Apr 2018 21:11:55
Well done to the lads and management today, good result all round.
Keep the momentum going into the playoffs and we most have a chance.
Well done Villa.




18 Apr 2018 19:00:33
With next season in mind
I don't think Benteke is as good as most people think, very overrated and moody, and does go missing, this has been proved beyond any doubt, and I for one would not be waving any flags if we wanted him back or were connected with him.
I would rather have Charlie Austin any day, he does the job consistently and doesn't sulk, and is a very honest team player, also has a far better goals return, by a country mile.
He has it all, both feet, heading ability, big and strong, quick and skilful for a big guy, I think Austin would be a perfect fit for us, and is the type of player we should be looking at.
If we go up I think he would come to VP, if we don't go up, VP is still an attractive proposition for him.
To top that off, I would go for a loan move for Danny Ings,


1.) 19 Apr 2018 10:13:48
Agree about benteke
He does go missing to many times and would not top my list of potential signing,
Austin would be a good shout if kept fit,
What worries me is that Bruce does like to get players in from hull which for me is not the way forward,
Being linked with Livermore would be a poor signing for me,

2.) 19 Apr 2018 15:52:52
Livermore, no thank you.

3.) 19 Apr 2018 18:57:45
Austin turned SB/ AVFC down before going to Southampton.
I don't think that he will change his mind.
However He is what we need, a proven scorer from any position.
Kodjia will be off as soon as his contract is up.
After a long lay off he should be ready for anything but on the pitch he ain't showing.
Saying that I am not sure what style we are attempting to play.
Everything seems to go down the wing when we have forwards that would prefer to play down the middle.
I would like to see the odd ball fed through the defence rather than 20 passes across the box.
I want to see "super" Jack lighting up the forwards with killer balls. He has the ability but probably hangs on too long and the feed's the wide man.



17 Apr 2018 16:56:33
Hi ed, just a quick question mate, can people click the agree or other boxes more than once, if so will it register.


{Ed033's Note - People can find a way if they want to, to make it register more than once.

1.) 17 Apr 2018 18:56:15
Thank you for that ed,
After years of wondering about the agree and disagree boxes, it has finally sunk in with me, I have just realised the more sensible your post is, the more disagrees you get, that is hilarious.

{Ed033's Note - i can remove the thumbs if people want.

2.) 18 Apr 2018 14:34:30
I don't mind ed sounds a good idea, I can`t see the point of them to be honest, I think it stops people posting.
The reason I have mentioned it is because the thread below has 6 disagrees, but nobody has made any effort to say why they disagree, surely that is not the purpose of the forum.
Personally I think it is better to see who is disagreeing with you and reading why.
Could you carry out a vote on it ed, with replies written rather than a click in a box.

{Ed001's Note - take them away and you just get posts saying 'I agree' or 'I disagree' repeatedly. They add even less to the conversation and clutter up the threads with drivel. Just ignore them if you don't like them, it keeps trolls busy.}

3.) 18 Apr 2018 14:54:16
Ok ed no problem mate, it was ed033 suggestion, just thought it might encourage posting rather than hiding.

{Ed001's Note - it doesn't. It just means my time is wasted with those kind of troll posts. That is why we put the thumbs there in the first place.}

4.) 18 Apr 2018 15:14:08
As I said ed that's fine.

{Ed001's Note - sorry mate that sounded grumpy, I was just rushing as I am trying to work on something else at the same time.}

5.) 18 Apr 2018 15:32:43
That's ok mate, leave her alone, she will still be there tonight.

{Ed001's Note - hahaha if only. No I am putting together an article on Mike Tyson for the boxing site. There is just so much info to sort through and pick what to put in and what to leave out. It is worse than the Cruyff one I did recently.}

6.) 18 Apr 2018 15:48:42
That's cool, I understand, will leave you to it.

{Ed001's Note - no worries, I am quite happy with the excuse to have a break to be honest. I am just a little distracted by it.}



11 Apr 2018 10:49:45
Good win last night, I thought we were very fortunate to go in at half time on level terms, and to be honest could not see where a goal was coming from.
Although we were pretty average last night we stuck at it and got our rewards with a great goal from Jack, worthy of wining any game.
Beat Leeds on Friday and we are guaranteed a playoff spot, how bum tingling will that be.


1.) 11 Apr 2018 11:37:14
Sure is bum tingling time Dave,
Now's the time to get our act together big time!

Yeh, read the same article nick, I have a feeling that grealish could be another agbonlahor, in the sense that unless some club comes in with a ridiculous offer for him and us, he may well stay put.
Man cty, Man utd, or a top foreign outfit might tempt.
I might be wrong but He is a home boy, so unless we plummet I think he will stay put.

Tell me about it Ken, I have been a campaigner for freedom of opinions on hear for ages.
And yes, I would also accept the man (Bruce) and his style of play if, and I say if, it kept us in the prem and in the hunt for honours.
But I just can`t see that happening somehow, still never say never.
I would hold my hand very high if I am wrong.

Ken, I have to agree with most of what you and Hoeful have said, and I think everyone on this thread have made some good points.
As you all know I have serious reservations about the ability Bruce has, not keen on his style of football at all, but that is for another day, I have never called for his head and he has earned his chance.
Time will tell, and fingers crossed for the playoffs.

Hopeful, agree with all you have said mate, Albert I think is over the border to be honest.
Yeh Ken, I think it is a 3 stage plan, it needs to be though, this team are not good enough.

Would love to take the last pen.
Took all penalties for all the teams I played for, missed one and had one saved in nine years.
You can`t practice penalties, waste of time, no crowd no pressure what's the point in that.
You either can or you can`t take penalties.
I am not trying to sound smug, its just the way it is, england have always practiced pens, on that note I rest my case.

What are your reasons for wanting Benteke back?

I wish people would stop shouting and spouting off about what we are going to do.
More often than not it ends up being the kiss of death.
Let`s wait and see what happens next week, there are still two teams in it, Fulham have to be respected, don’t disrespect them before a ball has been kicked.
If we win yes we can all shout and brag as much as we like and nobody can say jack.

That's fine chris, not a problem mate.
Funny really because Marega is similar to Benteke, big and strong two good feet, and quick.
He has improved at Porto for sure, did not pull up any trees before he went to Porto.
He has played in France but would he adapt to the English game, who knows, would probably command a fee of about 8 mil plus.
Seen him play 3/ 4 times.
