If we stay up and get the reported £80mill asking price for Jack who do we think we could realistically bring in?
I think our starting lineup could look like this (Dunk being less likely with the owners strategy of younger players but best option within budget imo) .
Heaton
Guilbert Dunk Mings Targett
Phillips
Rashica Mcginn Benrahma
Samatta Wesley

Subs
Nyland
Konsa
Engels
Nakamba
Trezeguet
El Ghazi
Davis

Only one cm on bench as both starting wingers could slot into that central position.

We could stick with Konsa who has been decent and look at right back instead but I'm struggling to think of any great options available less than £20mill who are significant upgrades.

Not a bad line up however I would take a couple of players from Utd for Jack so I would ask for Axel and Chris Smalling.

I like you I know he is outside the age bracket but it gives us some premier league experience which we have been crying out for at the back, and ask for £55 million I would also ditch Wesley Engels Trezeguet Taylor and El Ghazi And I would look to bring in Harry Wilson, Benrahma Barkley Mitrovic and Batshuayi and go 4 4 2.

I am sure there are lots of other ways we could go and it’s great to indulge in a bit of Fatasy football, but I think we can all agree that whatever we do we need to do something different next season.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 May 2020 17:34:57
I think Wesley will grow and he has shown at times that coming short to bring people into play is his strength. Wesley deeper with Samatta running the channels could work.

Utd wouldn't give Axel and Smalling for a combined £25mill valuation and Smalling is even worse than what we have imo.
I don't think we'd get enough for the players you listed to buy all of your wish list and ditching both wingers for Benrahma and Wilson would still leave us short in that department.

While his defensive work is poor you can't argue with the fact El Ghazi has won us points at the other end so should keep him for backup/ rotation.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 May 2020 14:25:50
Smalling available for £15 mill apparently he has had a decent season with Roma and he certainly isn’t as error strewn as Engels. In terms of cover for the wingers I would use Louie Barry and Green as cover after extending his contract . I don’t think el ghazi or tres does enough at either end of the pitch although tres works hard that isn’t enough in the prem imo. However that’s the beauty of this is it’s all about opinions.

With you on that John.

Barry isn't really a winger, he can play on the outside of a 3 at a push but he's a number 9 through and through.
I liked Green for us at times in the championship but it worries me he can't even get into a struggling Preston team now. May be a case of just not the right fit and his pace works better for our counter attacks but you'd have thought if he was that good they'd play him.

So intrested to hear your thoughts on nobody playing at home does it matter? Surely if your good at football it doesn't matter where you play right because there be no fans. There is 1 idea others is every home team knows how there pitch runs eg Villa park as a slight hill bit in it so does it matter its the same for everybody.

Has anybody heard the leaked audio of the bristol rovers manager. 3 go up nobody goes down 6 go down the season after. Its the real deal looks like we be safe. If we do stay up we need to learn from mistakes big clear out. Also what's peoples view on connor say jacks to good for Villa?

Hey walkies why don't you join in with some of the slightly more fun stuff on the banter site instead of just going on about how crap the Villa are? We get you're not happy but another squad rebuild would just leave us back at square 1 and take even more time to gel (again) that's if we're lucky enough to stay up. Who knows you may enjoy the banter side of things and be cheered up a bit 👍😁.

Read the article but think the premier league will just operate in their own bubble and stuff the rest. The gravy train must keep a rolling 👎.

Yep listened to the audio walkies, thought it was on the button, and well dictated.
I agree with most of the audio.
"The premiership" well, Hmmm.

How long now b4 the season end French league just ended, what are the fa thinking apart from being greedy idiots, no1 knows how long this is going to take and players playing behind closed doors isn't really a good idea with players sweating and spitting on pitch they could still catch virus.

{Ed002's Note - It is not a matter for The FA to decide. The Premier League need to make a decision and right now there would like to get it completed but there remains a swell of clubs who want to draw a line across as there is no realistic end date in sight for the decision. It is due to be discussed again on Friday.}

So Newcastle are close to a Man City like takeover fairplay to them enrique former Newcastle lbk as used us as a example tho by saying don't go out spending like Aston Villa build slowly or you could be in a relegation battle. let's get this straight we are not in a relegation battle because we brought lots of players we are down there because of poor management and the players we brought was poor. When football does get back up and runing we better start wining qwick if we are to be safe! If all the players are at home they should be made to watch the games we have played!

Walkies, have you nothing else to say, other than to complain about our club.
Your posts all start away from your intended agenda, and then gradually move towards what you really want to do, and that is to air a particular view, that you have been hammering home all season.
I really is starting to grind a bit now mate.
Same old, same old.

Dave, Walkies just can’t help his self . For someone who under different alias, has berated others for not being proper fans, the mind boggles. Just doom and gloom, I bet his mate Kieth thought he was a hoot .
Onwards & Upwards Villaforever.

As we have a break in the season I will give a review. Start of the season there was a buzz about the place 1 like I never seen since Big Ron days. We brought a lot of players mainly as we didn't have a choice because our other ones were either old or not good enough.

We went with young potenial players with a sell on value rather than proven premiership players. I think early on in the season we did ok not great but ok the half way through we started being unlucky via VAR now I don't no what's happend but that buzz around Villa park as gone an results an performances have gone poor putting us deep in a relegation battle. We have players not marking from corners.

Players fighting and our team captin breaking the rules to go on the lash all of which stinks of when we went down before! Now we have this unexpected break one that Dean Smith can be gratful for as he was 1 game from the sack. So whos fault is it well I say its everybodys Jesus helped buy the players Dean Smith isn't getting the best out of them and can't even set up basics like corners but its not all there fault.

The owners hatched this plan together so its there fault aswel. I must say one thing that hasn't let us down is us the fans we have been there singing our hearts out even at some of the worst games southampton away brighton bournmouth where we was awful we all stood by the team!

Best game this season prob beating Everton at Villa park or the liverpool performance! Worst games Southampton and Bournmouth. Best Signing for me samatta really like him matt targett another good 1. Worst signing drinkwater and reina don't rate luiz either! Best goal gota be glelish old trafford wow what a strike.

Player of the season without doubt jack grelish but we do only play for him. Overall must say its be a great highlight going to a cup final so 5 out of 10 for me. let's hope we csn turn it around! UTV Stay safe.

Two things walkies.
1. How do you know Deano was one game from the sack?
2. Some of the fans have let our club down big time mate, several
times the have fought among themselves, that is shocking.
Everything else you have said, is pretty much water under the bridge,
and cannot be changed.
We have all given our views on how things have gone or should have gone, and as we have seen it all counts for nothing.
There is only one goal at the moment mate, stay safe walkies.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Apr 2020 13:44:53
Well said Dave and that's not having a pop at walkies as we can all agree the season has been disappointing considering our expectations and whoever's feet the fault lies at is inconsequential to the bigger picture at the moment. Football will return and we will, God permitting, get our lives back. how the great game returns and people's perception of it may of changed is a whole different ball game (pardon the pun )

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Apr 2020 15:00:36
Thank you Moose.
I really don`t think people can or want to grasp just how much things are going to change mate, sport, social, financial, in fact most ways of life as we know it now.
I have no doubt at all, that we are going to realise a new way of life, in some ways better, and in other ways far more severe, not a nice word I know but, Draconian maybe.
It is like someone pressing the reset button.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Apr 2020 15:50:11
Not sure I'd go for a vampire society Dave. oh draconian. should of gone to specsavers (other eye tests and glasses manufacturers are available) 😂😂.

The youth that was fighting at wembley was on our coach mate they weren't fighting over villa they was on drugs. An as 4 the Dean Smith thing it was well documented to me looks like he lost the dressing room. But hopefully all the players and management staff all pull together now.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Apr 2020 17:31:50
I never mentioned Wembley, there have been a couple of incidents, where Villa fans have been fighting in the ground mate.
The well documented bit, is nothing more than paper talk, and BS.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Apr 2020 22:15:24
Just read that should the season start again and if Wes or Heaton are fit they wouldn't be able to play as our 25 registered players as of Feb still apply and Smith, for obvious reasons deregistered them, anyone know if this is correct.

06 Apr 2020 11:42:13
Yes mate, no question, the bloke is an idiot.
Needs to grow up, become a man, and he is not bigger than Villa like he thinks he is.
He has done it with me, get rid.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Apr 2020 14:08:52
Glad you are well Villadave hope the edds are all ok as well we don't always agree on here but health comes 1st which is why iam so angry with Grealish they don't have to take a pay cut like the rest of us. The Nurses and Doctors put there lives on the line for us, alls they ask is we stay home. Rumours are that his on the white powder aswell I think if that's the case we got to let him go.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Apr 2020 16:29:43
You don’t take prisoners do you Dave, but I am inclined to agree with you mate.
Also, off pitch antics aside, I think the way we play has become far too predictable. It all has to go through Grealish and opposing teams I feel, have learnt how to deal with that.
I think we need to learn how to play more collectively and that Jon McGinn should be made captain, as of now.
I hope the club are doing all they can to try and tie Callum O’Hare down to a new contract. He’s come on leaps and bounds since going to Coventry and could I feel fill the void . If MU want to do business, I would like to see Axel Tuanzebe coming our way as part of the deal. I think Mattic would be a good option for us as well, a quality defensive midfielder with bags of experience. Acquiring their services would go a long way to sorting out our defensive frailties. Until we sort the goal leaking problem out we’re always going to struggle. So I think 60 million plus these 2 players would be good business.
What do you think guys?

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Apr 2020 18:57:36
No I don`t take prisoners Mark. I never have done, I am like my Dad, my wife, and our Son and Daughter are the same.
Mark, if people toe the line, I would walk to the end of the earth for them, in truth I am a very tolerant person and like people.
Grealish is a mindless idiot, just like Catherine Calderwood and now Kyle Walker.
All of them, get rid, end of.
We all make mistakes, I put sugar in the salt cellar, I also buy a thick loaf instead of medium, but doing that I am not going to kill anyone.
On a more relaxed note, I do agree with your views on players.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Apr 2020 19:17:13
Don’t get me wrong Dave I like your attitude towards these
people. Unfortunately I don’t think our manager is of the same mentality and I expect it will all be brushed under the carpet because it’s Jack, who has a separate rule book to everybody else.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Apr 2020 20:46:23
True Mark, you are probably right, which is a shame.
That is the very reason I feel as I do, there are no consequences for these people and their behaviour.
If the Management and the club do nothing about this, Shame on them.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Apr 2020 21:29:54
Footballers flouting the rules Scottish health secretary the same and the person guiding us through these trying and exceptional times moved to intensive care! Where is the justice in that? If I had anything to do with it they would be made an example of for everybody to take heed of the warnings and the Scottish health secretary would of been publicly sacked not allowed to resign. These idiots make my blood boil.

You're welcome Dave, same rules for everyone irrespective of position or wealth. People in higher positions or looked up to by thousands, if not more, set an example we can all follow instead of sticking 2 fingers up to everyone you self important a#######s!

Spot on mate.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Apr 2020 14:26:17
Now here's a thought.

According to most sources, Jack is currently on 100k per week.
If he gave up half of that for 6 months, that would be about £1.25m (still leaving him with £3.75m for the year) which, by my reckoning would fund about 40 additional healthcare staff for a full year. Now that's what I would call a useful penance for his recent dick-headedness.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

01 Apr 2020 14:51:18
That's a good call Menace, it seems you can put a price on stupidity. Also there's an interesting read on Vital Villa titled 'the messiah or a very naughty boy" well worth a read.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Apr 2020 16:36:57
Read the article Moose. I agree with Juan Pablo Angels response to it. He is captain of our club and should lead by example not just on the pitch but off it as well. If he is incapable of doing that then he shouldn’t be captain of our great club.
Why should having wonderful god given ability give him a divine right to just do as he pleases. He is a very lucky person to be blessed with such ability, so is this the way to show his gratitude for that?

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Apr 2020 18:09:41
I think therein lies the problem Mark, they may be grateful when they first start out but once they get that big break they're all "Bertie big b######s" and start to feel they're entitled to it. Even some clubs youngsters get more than we'll earn in a month or more ie Uniteds "Baby Bentley brigade " I appreciate that most live exemplary lives on and off the pitch but the captain of our club is its figurehead and good sensible, behaviour is a small price to pay for a very lucrative career.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Apr 2020 19:27:57
Great Idea, but Grealish`s wages are nowhere near £100,000
He is on about £35,000 a week MD.
Still worth doing what you suggest, only over a longer period.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Apr 2020 19:17:45
Dave I bet he’s not on 35k a week.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Apr 2020 19:56:00
You may be right Tom, but according to the club wage structure, Tom Heaton is top earner on £42,000 mate.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Mar 2020 17:33:29
Apparently Grealish and Capaldi were pixxed as newts last night and crashed into some parked cars pictures surfacing now grealish wearing a slider and a slipper looking a bit worse for wear so much for self isolating and behaving responsibl irresponsible little twit if true but looking at pictures its definitely him!

If this proves to be true it kind of highlights my view of professional footballers I posted on the banter page : normal rules do not apply or are blatantly ignored.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Mar 2020 10:44:20
True Moose. In my honest and humble opinion he is over hyped don't get me wrong he is a decent player but his off the pitch antics overshadow stuff he does on the pitch. Yes he does a lot for people out of football but that is for his own self gratification/ Ego. The lad goes on sunbeds when its half price FACT, That shows the mentality of him. He will end up like Lee Hendrie I will put good money on that. Young children want to follow in his footsteps and be like my message to them is don't if you want to follow role models follow and watch what our NHS is doing these are our real role models and heros.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Mar 2020 11:18:12
I agree Daz they're the real heroes and deserve our gratitude and respect for all they're doing despite the risks involved . I think after all this is over there should be a special day to celebrate their dedication and sacrifice to the cause.

30 Mar 2020 12:51:05
Good call that Moose afterall this they deserve a bloody big pay rise.
