Keinan Davies - really promising player we have yet we don't play to his strengths he holds the ball up and links play very well, puts it out wide and then instead of a first time cross the ball goes backwards and across.

Grealish - great to have him back fully fit, he's a pleasure to watch in what otherwise is quite a rigid team. Again though I think he needs to play closer to the striker.

snodgrass - for me this guy should be scoring more and deserves to be dropped to the bench as his form is dire at the minute. Get o'hare or green back in the team.

come on Brucey sort it out mate the team has looked so dysfunctional and one dimensional of late.

Can't argue with any of that but sure that someone will lol

A friend of mine who lives in Holland tells me villa, Everton, newcastle an west brom are interested Utrecht striker seb haller.


1.) 10 Jul 2016 18:42:26
who is he mate any good?

2.) 10 Jul 2016 19:08:44
Aged 22/ 23 scored for fun in the Dutch league for Utrecht last season. Looking at our competition for him I think we've a decent chance of getting him (I'm ever so slightly bias) but either way Englands meant to be his preferred choice.

3.) 10 Jul 2016 19:28:24
Seen strikers come from the Dutch leave an adapt to English football like a duck to water an then seen some come an be like that de Jong Newcastle signed, would be a gamble.

4.) 10 Jul 2016 22:10:27
Might sound a stupid suggestion, but I wonder if we could go Dutch, but with rvp.
Can't get a game where he is, to come back to uk, and be the big name, might be a tempter at this stage of his career.

But I'm sure I'm the only one! Lol.

5.) 11 Jul 2016 13:21:32
Rvp has a constant injury (Achilles I think) which limits him to the amount of games he can play. He went to fenerbache for a big payday an hasn't played all that much so i'd stay well clear of him. I'm sure he'll be playing in ch£Na next season.

6.) 11 Jul 2016 13:22:36
Looking at the papers today it seems all of a sudden everyone wants seb haller with Norwich an Sunderland declaring interest too.

7.) 11 Jul 2016 13:48:18
Good point finch, but that's kinda my point, because everyone thinks that, he may want to prove a few people wrong, that he isn't a total mercenary!
I do think you, sadly, are spot on though! Lol.

Loftus-cheek will be villas first signing of the summer.


1.) 03 Jun 2016 17:52:23
Cannot see it but would love it to be true.

2.) 03 Jun 2016 17:55:46
Would be a good loan signing to get us back up there but no chance of signing him from chelsea.

3.) 03 Jun 2016 18:12:26
not a chance in hell.

4.) 04 Jun 2016 08:36:15
Ha ha when Kingvilla is trashing your rumors you know you're talking rubbish.



20 Jan 2016 09:17:20
Che Adams to villa before the end of the window.




06 Nov 2015 14:18:38
Not a rumour just a likely punt that I'd put money on.
Joel Campbell to sign in January.


1.) 06 Nov 2015 14:54:25
I think we have enough players like that
Traore sinc ayew gabby
Need a out an out goalscorer keeper right back.

2.) 07 Nov 2015 09:13:01
Austin all the way.

Its great to see the lads stringing the wins together now and next season I think we'll be genuine contenders to win the league outright.
I think as far as incomings go i'd like to see 4 incomings being a gk, centre half, winger and a young striker.
Outgoings there's still a lot to do and move on such as gabby, Richards, elphick, bunn, Gil, mcormack etc.

Id keep veretout and Sanchez.

Grealish I'm on the fence with and would rather loan him out to prove he is the real deal.



1.) 19 Mar 2017 17:04:38
Sanchez contracts up end of the year.



15 Mar 2017 02:48:08
Well done to super marc Albrighton last night, claret an blue doing the biz.


1.) 16 Mar 2017 19:02:32
Watched the last half hour and he was outstanding for them.



13 Feb 2017 04:07:40
I still think we lack an industrious live wire in the center of the pitch. Slightly leftfield but I think Stuart sinclair of Bristol rovers would be a fantastic addition.


1.) 13 Feb 2017 10:23:15
Wish we'd swapped mcshortfarce for pritchard from norwich (or even hoolahan), or nabbed zak clough, but hey ho, what's done is done, but your right finch, a little maestro would have been the icing on the cake.



09 Jan 2017 14:26:43
I'm not moaning because I think he's done a good job so far but why is he still backing gabby? He's completely finished as a villa player and even as a professional footballee in my opinion. We need a striker badly.


1.) 09 Jan 2017 16:20:19
Lack of options I suppose. With him knowing Kodjia would be gone for a bit, that Gestede would be moving on and that Kozak has never really recovered from his injuries he really is all that's left capable of a lone striker role. McCormack is just too short and doesn't have the pace to offer provide an outball as a lone striker and RHM is both unproven and quibbling over a contract. Like you say I think we do need another first team striker.



30 Dec 2016 14:29:20
Not sure why we're getting rid of gestede, he's proved himself to be a really useful impact player from the bench.


1.) 30 Dec 2016 15:12:08
Your right but that's all he is because we don't play to his strengths, even last night we lumped it up and he knocked it into kodja for his 1 on 1 late on, but then we didn't do it again. We got a free kick inside their half and everyone was pointing at him at the back of the line of players, to knock it all the way over to him and then he can knock it into the box, what did we do? Pass it up to adomah and left both centre backs gustede kodja McCormack all lining up for no reason. Sometimes we do the stupidest of things, beggars belief.

2.) 30 Dec 2016 15:47:37
I'm sorry guys. 'Justhead ' is a terrible footballer, he does win a lot in the air, but doesn't control it.

He has a worse first touch than Freddie Kruger, we don't lump the ball into the box for him, as although he might touch it, he lacks intelligence, skill and ability to control it.

To swap him for Rhodes would be incredible, I just feel sorry for the boro fans.

There was a post on here yesterday of the worse strikers that have been at villa. He is right up there.

He had 1 great season, along side Rhodes. and 1 great game against Liverpool. and we brought him because of.

3.) 30 Dec 2016 16:45:28
Yea not a great loss, he just gives us another option off the bench in desperation.

4.) 30 Dec 2016 17:28:06
But not a great one.
If it's an option from the bench. why not r. h. murphy?
Pace, desire, and knows where goal is in youth football.

Worth his opportunity.

5.) 30 Dec 2016 19:11:19
I know what your saying but RHM offers similar to kodja, speed in behind. We haven't got anyone who is an overwhelming presence in the air, whether he's good at it or not, his stature alone causes problems and gives us a different option.

6.) 30 Dec 2016 20:24:08
Chris we haven’t got anyone who can lift the ball more than 3 feet off the dam floor so what`s the point.

7.) 30 Dec 2016 22:54:24
That's what I've said, we don't play to his strengths, my point was he gives us that option even if we don't use it, when he's on defenders have to prepare for it.

8.) 31 Dec 2016 02:49:42
Helenius, bowery, balaban, the Moore brothers, winegum, kozak, heskey are all worse than justhead surely? Anyways point remains he always makes an impact for us coming off the bench, if he's replaced I'd like it to be someone who has the same presence on the pitch.
Fingers crossed Coventry will give us a fiver for gabby.

I obviously was watching a different game chris, Davis led the line well it was josh and the midfield who failed to support the striker for the first half.

What about Origi from Liverpool on loan until the end of the season?

He needs games to put himself into contention for bBelgium and also to put himself into the shop window too.


{Ed001's Note - he is on loan with Wolfsburg.}

Same team but swap Davis for the kod as he'll bully defenders like Morrison did for millwall last week.

I get the criticism to an extent about the formation chopping an changing and the midfield just not clicking but don't forget Bruce hasn't had a preseason with his team.
The best things to come out of this season for me have been:
We have a prolific striker
The emergence of Andre green
We won the derby
And we didn't get relegated!

Two players i'd be looking to come in over the summer would be maddison or billy bodin.

Why on earth would you want to sell a proven goal scorer at all Dave?! Keep him unless someone offers mega money. To which your talking 30m+.
