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.

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

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.

Thank you Moose.

06 Apr 2020 21:57:44
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!

06 Apr 2020 22:06:09
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!

Again good editing there Ed's. Sorry for the language but this makes my wee boil your have thought he had learned his lesson from years ago.

{Ed001's Note - it's fine mate, very understandable.}

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Mar 2020 10:05:02
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.

Agree0 Disagree0

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

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Mar 2020 13:56:43

Looks like things are going from bad to worse, looks like drinkwater has flipped, once players start fighting among themselves it is a slippery slope to the drop. More and more papers are commenting on suso and smiths future., once the press wolves pack go a hunting there is usually only one outcome. I think the club is a shambles at the moment and the really sad thing is I can't see any way out of it.

Believable1 Unbelievable0

11 Mar 2020 13:34:18
Just read the report Scotty, we are apparently considering terminating his loan.
No need for any consideration at all, just get rid, you can not be doing that, end of.
I see he picked the smallest player, wonder why?

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Mar 2020 17:51:19
The answer is to calm down accept we are going down believe it or not stick with Dean Smith stop panic buying bad players and play are own kids, let’s try and build a team probably not going to happen. Clubs a mess supporters don’t help.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Mar 2020 06:32:58
Stick with Smith have you been on earth mate😂😂😂 not a chance he should keep his job woeful manager he's a championship manager that's his level and if we go dwn he shouldn't be in charge.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Mar 2020 06:56:22
So it's the supporters problem for overpaid players that haven't got a clue and a coach who is even more clueless. Perhaps if we have to play in empty stadiums because of the coronavirus we may be ok without supporters, the mind boggles!

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Mar 2020 10:06:37
I know scotty it's not us the supporters.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Mar 2020 08:21:42
Championship here we come.

Can someone explain why when we have an ex England centre half on our coaching staff we can't defend set pieces?

Believable0 Unbelievable0

11 Mar 2020 02:32:12
Easy- when you have a manager who ignores advice and goes 'zonal 'no matter what, the results literally DO speak for themselves.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Mar 2020 13:36:20
I do get that Classof82 but at the start of the season we were defending better than we are now, same players and yet at the moment it looks like every time the opposition attacks we look like we are going to concede. I could have understood that more if that was happening at the start of the season whilst the new players were bedding in but not now.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Mar 2020 15:04:46
Villa haven't played well in 24 years. Don't delude yourself, Villajohn. Just face it. It's Championship next season. No manager in the world would want to have the responsibility of the club. Wonder why? Maybe because it's the most overrated club in the Premiership, and therefore the most difficult club to manage. I for one see that now. I know another thing. Sam Allardyce isn't the answer to the problems nor is Neil Warnock. Aston Villa is doomed!

{Ed002's Note - John Terry expects to take over until the end of the season.}

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Mar 2020 15:22:25
Well, Terry won't be the answer either. If Villa wins something again in let's say 48 years of time, it wouldn't surprise me at all. That's the state we are in.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Mar 2020 18:31:45
If we are going to get rid of Smith then Terry or Allardyce aren’t the answer I would rather we try someone like Alex Neill at Preston or dare I say it Gary Rowett I think either could do a decent job we don’t want to recycle the same old names.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Mar 2020 01:56:03
H85 are you a villa, villa haven't played well in 24 yrs 🤔🤔🤔and are a overrated club and won't win ote in the nxt 48 yrs can you see into the future. Villa are a massive club 5 most successful club in English history stats don't lie big fan base good stadium quality training ground, just been run poorly since doug, and also ffp has hindered villa spending power with new owners, we just need the right manager and coaches then we will be flying again it's just been a dull 10 years we will bck one day.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Mar 2020 06:59:26
It's not good enough, and you know it.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Mar 2020 07:32:36
By the way, I support loserpoop, of course. What do you think? You must know what irony is, right? Villa aren't playing to their full potential, and you know it. It's been like that for the last 24 years.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Mar 2020 10:08:39
Give up 🙈🙈.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Mar 2020 07:55:42
All I would like from tonight's game, is 100% commitment, from every single player, nothing left behind on that pitch, as supporters that's what we want, to get a point I think would be a brilliant result, every single point from now on is going to be massive . Team wise I would play Nyland in goal, he likes playing against Leicester, and also when teams, us included start playing out from the back, disasters occur, if in doubt clear your lines . Fingers crossed, commitment, passion, and a little bit off luck you never know .

Believable2 Unbelievable0

09 Mar 2020 14:25:45
I agree Mitch, but I would like the 3 points as well as the commitment mate.
Spot on with the playing out from the back, what a bum clencher that is, especially with Reina and Mings.
More than anything I want 2 up top, we need a goal threat.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Mar 2020 17:04:27
Agreed we can’t play out from the back as the players we have are not good enough to do it! I like the idea of 2 up top but I doubt we will. UTV.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Mar 2020 18:13:44
Agree Tom and Dave, I don’t think we will, which would be a shame. Leicester like playing it out from the back. If we played Samatta and Davis, they are both players that I think could press their defenders really well and make it difficult for them to do that.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Mar 2020 18:14:42
We beat them last time so no reason we can't do it again with their current form.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Mar 2020 18:38:07
True current form has been poor but yet again so has ours my heart says villa win but my head tells me 2-1 loss.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Mar 2020 19:21:07
Same not expecting anything from tonight really and remaining fixtures, we play the same every week we don't change at all, I want us to win but can't see it.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Mar 2020 19:33:31
Hey boys, be positive, they can do this, UTV 🦁.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Mar 2020 21:30:21
Lol let's face it the inevitable is coming. Blues next year though atleast wel get 6 points then even without jack and john.

Agree1 Disagree0

05 Mar 2020 23:39:06
I see another one of our youngsters is being head hunted by man City and sum of Europe's top clubs want him, we must be doing something right at youth level because a lot clubs want our youngsters, it makes you think why can't they get into our 1st team squad it's a joke there's nothing better seeing a youngster break into our team or squad plus it could save us millions, what is the point in having youth teams academys if we're not going to use them we might aswell scrap them it's a joke youth is the way forward.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

06 Mar 2020 16:03:41
Yeah, its been in circulation for a week now 4eva.
I think come the seasons end, there will be a lot of our youngsters having their contracts looked at and renewed.
I hope so anyway.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Mar 2020 00:29:23
4eva You are talking about 16 year olds .

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Mar 2020 07:25:52
Age is a number doesn't matter how old or young it's if your good enough d82.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Mar 2020 20:06:25
How many of our youngsters over the last 10-15 years have gone on to play at the top level for anybody?

Clarke and Cahill are the only ones and both played in our first team.
The rest are all stuck in the championship or below (Robinson got the closest when Sheff Utd bought him but obviously didn't make the grade for them).

The youngsters who have been picked off by Arsenal, City and Liverpool previously are never heard of again so clearly not that great they'd make the step up.
The coaches obviously feel there is just too much missing from their individual games (look at Green, we all thought he could be great but just hasn't really developed) .

Maybe they also take into account our fans who will turn on the immediately when they have a bad game because we just don't have the personnel to carry them for a game or 2.

At the end of the day, if you're good enough, you're old enough only works if you are the first bit. What we have in the squad isn't great but any coach would make the move if a kid was genuinely better than the current options.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Mar 2020 21:53:37
Just realised I missed Albrighton out. That's a grand total of 3, all from before our fall from grace, Jack is the only one since then to make the grade.
Top youth sides take high levels of investment to produce 1 or 2 players capable of the step up. Chelsea and City's U23's cost more than some Championship teams.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Mar 2020 10:36:08
Admittedly Stevens came to Villa when he was 22 but he’s an example of a young player that wasn’t given adequate opportunities.

{Ed001's Note - he is certainly proving to be a big miss with Sheff Utd. He has been outstanding since signing for them. Good, technical player too, surprisingly good on the ball.}

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Mar 2020 11:39:02
It would appear that the Villa owners intend investing heavily in the Academy which imho is the way forward. We can’t keep buying players, who are often well over priced and more often than not don’t come up to expectations. It’s simply unsustainable to continue like that.
Correct me if I’m wrong but I think that any investment in youth academy affairs is not considered in ffp accountability. If that is the case it’ would be a very smart move to go down that route.

{Ed002's Note - You are correct, the FFP accounts exclude academy and infrastructure costs plus other items which typically amount to much less of a cost.}

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Mar 2020 15:41:29
Entirely correct Mark. That's exactly what esteemed Mr Purslow said at the Supporter Trust meeting a couple of weeks ago. Monies from HS2 have been invested in the new Academy infrastructure; the Academy has been totally restructured and Mark Harrison (described as a 'brilliant hire') is in the process of transforming the whole academy management structure. This all presumably comes under the umbrella of the club's 5-6 year plan to bring us back to where the owners and CP (and us fans) want us to be on a permanent basis.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Mar 2020 18:20:57
As pointed out Stevens wasn't an Academy player.
During his time he had Warnock, Bertrand and Cissokho ahead of him who were better options.

When he got a run he didn't really take it and it took him 3 years in the lower leagues to build up to the player he is.
Some players just don't fit some clubs also. He has a lot less pressure on him at Sheff Utd. Lowton was ok for us but he's thriving at Burnley.
Lee Hendrie was the other way, consistent for us but couldn't get a sniff elsewhere.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Mar 2020 18:19:01
I’m optimistic that this policy will pay dividends MD, it may take a few years to kick in, hope I’m still alive to see us reap the rewards.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Feb 2020 06:38:46
Big game today biggest game of season in my view, would like to see 2 strikers play and Connor as well.

Yep, massive game today Vila4Eva, my heart says us to win 2-1,my head says after looking at the stats we lose 3-1,I just hope deano has them all fired up and we don't do the usual and get tired top badly in the last 15 minutes, hopefully Baston will come out like a man possessed!

Being intrepputed in the Premier League all final
Decisions should be down to the Referee execpt offside which is basically your off or not and no u cannot rewrite it midway through a season that’s just ridiculous.

Hi ed just herd man city's ffp punishment what does this mean for villa do you anything mate, now iam worried now.

{Ed002's Note - It is unrelated to aston Villa - an old issue based on stolen evident by whistleblower pinto and open to appeal. Aston Villa's problem is related to not living in their means (whay the earn) and the proposal to sell the stadium and rent it back.}
