Just a quick point fellas, why can't you get it we'll always be vulnerable at the back because of deano's blinkered vision of target being his favoured option because of his getting forward, he's pants defensively with the concentration abilities of a goldfish, when he plays we always look disjointed, this won't change until he gets injured or is left out, so your wasting your time talking about any other players coming in, and again, can anyone tell me how a team that cost less than a tenth of ours outwitted deano's?

Graeme Potter saw how naive we are going forward in numbers and a simple ball over the top stuffed us! imagine what he could do with real money? and how come we don't seem to have credible plan b? -on the very bright side we have a game in hand which could take us to joint second, so happy days, but against teams like Brighton we should be 3 points better off, so forward with belief yes, but as for our tactical awareness, c minus-should do better.

I see rumours are starting to circulate that Man City see Jack as a replacement for David Silva I think we might have to brace ourselves for a big money bid come January.

Where have you seen that John?

I’d say that might have some credibility. Suddenly Kevin De Bruyne is Jacks biggest fan. Could be he’s looking to woo him over to City.

Dave, I think it was on the Newsnow website.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Nov 2020 09:26:03
That was said a very long time ago, along with Grealish to Man United. Wouldn’t give it any thought.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Nov 2020 09:30:29
Add to that his court case coming up soon and clubs won’t want that bad press.

And the price tag will have gone up significantly, the owners won’t want to lose their captain as they’ve said and shown many a time. I can imagine they will be wanting 100+.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Nov 2020 09:55:26
Jack is currently one of the hottest properties in the Premier league. That surely puts him in the 100 million + bracket. How much did Barcelona pay for Coutinho a few years back. If he goes anywhere, it could well be to one of the Spanish giants, who don’t bulk at the price tags.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Nov 2020 10:18:49
Clickbait BS! He'll be linked with all and sundry because himself and the team are in the spotlight at the moment and they won't like one of the so called "smaller teams " gatecrashing their bubble. Let's flip it round for a change and start some bs rumours we're coming for their players 😁.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Nov 2020 10:32:08
If Jack continues to play as he is now, then I think it is likely that we will receive a bid and if Sancho is valued at £120 million we shouldn’t consider anything less than that. If we hold fast with that price then the only premiership clubs that would be able to offer that kind of money would be City, Utd or Chelsea. Chelsea don’t have a vacancy in midfield for him, and given the prevarication from Utd over the last 18 months plus the fact that they are currently a very ordinary side I think Jack might be inclined to tell them to bugger off. However I think City are a different proposition they would increase his wages that together with the chance to work with one of the best coaches in the world and some of the best players in the world might make him more inclined to move but if we continue as we have recently you never know, the team seem to be enjoying the football and the recognition is coming at international level so he might stay and see if he can take us to that next level here’s hoping.

{Ed002's Note - You are living in a fantasy land John. The value of Grealish is nothing to do with the price that Sancho did not sell for.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Nov 2020 10:33:57
Didn’t realise it was from news now, never ever trust that garbage😂 no doubt they get everything eventually, usually 5 days after everyone else. The rest is just clickbait, links to articles on random websites no ones ever heard.

{Ed002's Note - "Newsnow" is simply a news aggregator taking articles from other sources such as the BBC, Guardian etc..}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Nov 2020 10:56:42
Of course I know what news now is, as I said they get everything, problem is that means along with the telegraph etc, they also get ‘football365’ and ‘soccer. London’, which is utter rubbish.

Surely you know the saying Ed, never assume, it makes an, you know the rest😘.

{Ed002's Note - Actually they don't take a lot of news sources. }

What happened here then? 🤔.

Chris I think it may of been inferred that you were born in Crete 🤔😁.

15 Nov 2020 13:41:24
How did we get here, we were discussing a possible rumour about another clubs interest in one of our players.
What has happened in between?
I have seen nothing, and even if it is true, like John has said, we should be asking for similar money as the Sancho rumour.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Nov 2020 13:46:35
I think edd002 is correct jacks price has nothing to do with sancho price, especially seeing as sancho is nowhere near jacks lvl, with a 5 year contract jack is easily worth 150 million if he keeps playing as he is, with regards to a possible transfer I can’t see jack going to sit on city bench and fight with foden after breaking into England squad he needs to play every week instead of coming on for the last 15 mins week in week out, I personally think jack is going nowhere for a year or 2 and if we finish in a European spot he will sign a bumper new deal in the summer, big IF I know buy anything is possible the way results are going, as supporters we have to believe that these things are possible.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Nov 2020 15:07:58
Ed 02 with all due respect can I ask why am I living in a fantasy land? I accept Sancho plays in a different position to Jack but he plays in a league which in my opinion is neither as competitive or as good and he has not displayed the same level of consistency either at club or international level and yet very few if anyone seemed to be surprised at the fee being asked for him. Jack has just signed a five year deal so currently if clubs want him we hold most of the cards so to speak. We don’t really want to sell so if clubs want him they have to pay, after all Barcelona had to for both Suarez and Coutinho we aren’t going to give him away if they won’t pay fine we are more than happy to keep him win win as far as I am concerned.

{Ed002's Note - You cannot simply compare players in that way. Certainly nobody would pay £120M for Grealish and if a club were interest Aston Villa would be looking for considerably less if they decide to sell. It is also nothing to do with Coutinho or Suarez.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Nov 2020 15:59:53
Why would we be looking for considerably less? He’s our best player, our captain and just signed a 5 year deal? 80 million was the number dean smith had in his head in the summer and I think everyone can agree that jack has gone up a lvl since season started, his stats speak for themselves and he’s done well in the England set up with a few assists when he’s got his chance. seems to me it’s because he’s not playing for united or city etc. that we’re not entitled to top price for him, gone are the Randy learner days of selling our best players our owners have ambition to go places there’s no way they will sell on the cheap,

{Ed002's Note - The price of players is not going up - there is no money. You are delusional.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Nov 2020 16:12:18
Ed, we all know it has nothing to do with Coutinho or Suarez, we are using them as comparisons, in a monetary sense.
Can I ask, why you don`t think anyone would pay £120M for Grealish. And can I also ask why you think Villa would ask for less, if they ever do decide to sell.
That seems ludicrous to me, especially if that is the going rate for a player of his ability.

{Ed002's Note - There is no money, nobody except a few delusional AV fans think he is worth anything like that.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Nov 2020 16:52:32
Well the proof of the pudding will be in the eating as they say. As far as I am concerned it’s a win win if someone wants him they pay the asking price if they don’t we keep him with our current owners it doesn’t appear we will be under any pressure to sell.

{Ed002's Note - We have established before that the AV fans don't understand finances or FFP.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Nov 2020 17:44:23
Jack is not replaceable. I wouldn't want him to leave for 1 billion. What's the point if we can't get someone else equally as good or better? If he were to leave this year then I would think it'd have to be at least 120m. Why would we even consider him leaving though? As I say, we cannot replace him and it would screw the club up. I don't think Barkley or Martinez would have joined if Grealish wasn't already committed to Villa. He has more pulling power than Smith.

{Ed002's Note - Players are transient, they come and go.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Nov 2020 18:30:05
Ed, I know we have had this debate on here before but we have supposedly been falling foul of ffp for the last 2 -3 years but nothing has happened and given what the football world is going to go through post co vid are we sure anything will happen? If we do then the club will deal with it but I doubt it will happen how many prem clubs have fallen foul to date?

{Ed002's Note - Nothing has happened because of the pandemic. But Aston Villa remain in the same difficult situation John.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Nov 2020 18:41:51
Grealish, to us anyway, is priceless and we'll see how good he is tonight against top notch European competition. At the end of the day he's only worth as much as someone is willing to pay. And with the way the world is at the moment teams won't be awash with money, unless you're Chelsea who saved it during their transfer ban.
Ps Ed002 do you need a cuddle?

{Ed002's Note - I guess you don't understand where the money for transfers came from at Chelsea. There will be attractive offers for Grealish next summer at half of what you are all suggesting next summer. It will give him a chance to step up in his career.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Nov 2020 18:47:40
Ed mate, I don`t want to sound arrogant, but I am a C. I. D Certified Bookkeeper.
FFP, I never deal with, and am not so versed, but I certainly understand Business finances, and Accountancy mate.

{Ed002's Note - Clearly you don't understand FFP and as a bookkeeper I would not expect you to.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Nov 2020 19:19:27
Ed002 I remember you mentioning Chelsea in reference to this and I believe that because of the ban and their lack of spending their income outweighed their outgoings, hence the wiggle room that created regarding FFP. If wrong I stand corrected.

{Ed002's Note - It is that and significant sales - the Hazard money, Morata, Pasalic, January sales, other smaller sales etc..}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Nov 2020 19:21:42
Ed you’ve been saying this for two years, will we ever see the consequences of this difficult situation you tell us we are in?

Didn’t you tell us we wouldn’t be spending significant funds in the summer window just gone?

{Ed002's Note - The pandemic gave a break for Aston Villa to regroup and try and fix their problems, but the rolled the dice on a guarantee of survival this season - which they should do, there are worse sides. But it will still need to be resolved. And the changes they will look to next summer could be addressed by a sale or two.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Nov 2020 19:44:39
I think the academy revamp will help with this situation. Obviously we only want to clear out the "deadwood " and not our better players. Cut the wage bill, get whatever we can for fringe players and start seeing the more promising youngsters promoted to the bench. This is the sustainable model the club is looking at in the long run. For now though, with whatever leeway the C.V. has given us re FFP, we have probably spent above our means to ensure we stay in the premier league and the financial riches it entails.

{Ed002's Note - I tend to agree but you can expect interest in Grealish for next summer.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Nov 2020 20:27:31
That'll be inevitable, a bit like Thanos 😁.

15 Nov 2020 22:06:22
Jack, S performances just get better and better seems like more pundits are coming to appreciate his skills albeit late in the day.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Nov 2020 10:24:13
A lot of you might think i am mad here, but i think we can get europe this season as long as players stay fit. there's no much in this league to be scared of an if he strengthen again jan then who knows.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

10 Nov 2020 15:49:49
There's a chance but I think the results are there because we've mostly played teams we can counter. Leeds and Southampton showed we can be naive when the other team set up to block.
Top 10 should be the aim if we can maintain our levels and anything more is gravy.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Nov 2020 14:41:42
I still think we need a lbk and a midfielder in january mgcinn has been to in an out so far so i would go for somebody like deli ali on loan.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Nov 2020 17:48:47
Deli Ali instead of John maginn 😂😂😂.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Nov 2020 18:48:10
Do not speak of the Lord Mcginn in that manner please. He is not replaceable.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Nov 2020 20:09:35
His been poor last few games.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Nov 2020 02:55:00
If Ali was to get in the team he would have to replace Barkley, Ali wouldn’t do super johns job in a million years they are different type of players, plus he’s a diva and not a patch on what he used to be, no room for “has beings” McGinn might of had 2 bad games but so did the whole team, he was back to usual service against arsenal.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Nov 2020 16:37:22
Did I miss something, or didn't McGinn score a cracking goal after 48 seconds in the last game, only to have it disallowed by the Stockley Park Muppet Show?

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Oct 2020 12:15:33
Reports villa showing late interest in benerahma if you could believe it, not sure how true this is I think we will be more inclined to pursue king.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

12 Oct 2020 17:52:03
I honestly think if we wanted benrahma he would have been in the shirt by now. He's a quality player but not sure about him pace wise which it seems we are going for this season. Time will tell. And I agree I'd rather king he's more versatile can play a few positions.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Oct 2020 18:46:29
I think Smith’s recent comment continues to ring true; no incomings unless there are outgoing players.

Our problem lies with those we want to move on are only likely to interest Championship clubs, who are all generally skint.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Oct 2020 23:29:10
Probably right AJ I’d be surprised if we do any more buying, we could do with 3 more players imo but we need to shift 5 or 6 first.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Oct 2020 13:51:14
Great to see young Cameron Archer, having a great start at Solihull Moors,2 goals and an assist . Another good prospect .
Onwards&Upwards Villaforever.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

11 Oct 2020 12:55:49
Benrahma close to West Ham move according to reports. Deal close to £30m! Fairplay to him. Deserves opportunity in Prem. Just wonder whether we'd have been better with him rather than Traore? Only time will tell on that.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

11 Oct 2020 15:40:37
I don't think Deano rates him that highly. We've been linked with Benrama for long time now, and it surely would have happened by now if DS really wanted him.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Oct 2020 16:33:02
I also wonder if the protracted negotiations with Brentford for Watkins has put us off a bit.

To be honest, if am not sure where we would find a space up front now. Barkley’s arrival in midfield pretty much leads to Grealish staying out left. With two/ three options available down the right, only back up vacancies to strengthen cover for Grealish and Watkins appear to be left.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Oct 2020 09:19:22
I'm absolutely gutted he we haven't got him - I don't rate Traore and King much at all, it was Benrahma for me all the way. Delighted to see him given the opportunity in the Prem.

I would also be absolutely delighted to be wrong about Traore :D.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Oct 2020 12:05:49
Traore, by all accounts, was a Lange pick.

He does offer versatility, having played centre foward a fair bit and achieving a 1 in 3 goal scoring record. However, I am not sure of his true merit either. Perhaps a review come Christmas?

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Oct 2020 12:50:07
Give the kid a chance to settle 1st don't forget the French league was cancelled due to C.V., so therefore he may be a little behind regarding match fitness/ sharpness. I for one feel he's a good signing and played at a decent level.

Agree1 Disagree0

12 Oct 2020 14:14:02
Oh yes, definitely give him a chance. Some players blossom when the time is right and maybe this is his time now.

Agree1 Disagree0

12 Oct 2020 23:37:56
Trez for me all day.

Agree1 Disagree0

12 Oct 2020 23:42:31
You guys are mad, traore looks amazing to med that goal he scored in the cup wow. And if your judging him against stoke he can't do it on his own that team was set up to play the reserves who lost on purpose because they are angry about not being 1st teams. Traore is top class.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Oct 2020 16:19:04
Benrahma largely plays off the left hand side. and cannot cover CF. At half the price, Traore better fills the gap in our squad for a genuine left-footed attacker. He’s just scored in both of his international appearances, and the flashes he’s shown in his league cameos suggest there’s a real talent there.

With Barkley taking the more central role some of us thought Jack might play. Jack looks set to mainly play left side and drifting in, which is where Benrahma would best fit. So I just don’t think there’s a role for him in our strongest 11. He’d provide excellent depth, and an upgrade on AEG. but £30m is a lot for a squad player.

King might offer better value if he could be signed for £15m, and he’s a more versatile option imo.

Agree1 Disagree0

14 Oct 2020 21:11:23
I think you are right Ant, insofar as King fits our currents needs. I can’t see West Ham picking King up if Benrahma’s signature is secured. All recent reports suggest funds were tight at the Hammers, but moving Anderson out on loan might have eased things a little.

The other player I still wonder that might interest Smith is Buendia. If there is movement, probably with Lansbury moving to the Championship, I just wonder if an eleventh hour bid might be made for the Norwich man?

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Oct 2020 10:34:56
Two years ago today Deano took over. We were 15th in the Championship with little to no chance of getting anywhere with the way we were playing. Two years later we sit second in the Premier League (albeit after three games) and have just absolutely battered one of the best teams in the world of the last decade.

I know this will fall on deaf ears for most however this is a prime example of giving managers and players a chance and giving them time. Smith even being one of our own, and even showing unwavering commitment in the face of probably the toughest time in his personal life, didn't exempt him from what is often a seriously toxic, negative element of our fan base.

As recently as a month ago, there were people (some on here) still claiming the jobs too big for him and we aren't good enough under him. We have shown consistent progress under Smith, of course there have been some rough patches, but that's football, we have all been watching long enough by now to understand that and not react like petulant children whenever results don't go our way.

I wouldn't want anyone else as our manager, and if we continue the steady progress we have seen since he took over, then in two years time there's a good chance we will be back where we all want to be!

Believable1 Unbelievable0

10 Oct 2020 13:16:33
Smith is still young in managerial terms but already has a lot of tactical nous which often goes unnoticed.

He's still learning at this level and I think lockdown showed his willingness to adapt.
He is still a little stubborn in his substitutions (same people at the same minute markers) but I'm excited by the prospect of team and manager growing together.
I think most of us fans agree with you and see how what was a 5 year plan has skyrocketed. We know the whole season won't be plain sailing but from top to bottom there has been considerable progress.

Investment will eventually be cut back like under the Lerner administration but the clear difference now is that we are buying into long term options rather than high wage quick fixes.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Oct 2020 17:36:18
I agree with both your comments and I think the owners should also be congratulated for sticking with Deano, despite the pressure from a certain quarters.
Deano has learnt a lot from his first season in the Premier league and it’s already evident that he’s taken those lessons on board and is increasingly growing into the task.
The manager merry go round approach often fails. Take Manchester United for example, how many top managers have they been through since Ferguson’s reign?
Have they really progressed? I don’t think they have, arguably they would be in a better place now had they’d kept faith with some of the managers they’ve dismissed.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Oct 2020 18:35:43
If I remember correctly Ferguson’s first 3 yrs at Man U were 11th, 2nd and 11th and on the verge of being Dismissed.
The rest is History.
Perhaps DS is following a similar path?

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Oct 2020 18:45:31
I agree that Deano has matured as a manager and I was always in favour of keeping faith with him. I think the recruitment has been first class from those destined for the first team, the youth products we have acquired together with the back room staff that together with tying down key individuals to long term contracts, all show that for the first time in a long time the club in general is heading in the right direction. It’s down to the fans to keep the faith no matter what. We have got off to a great start but we will go through rocky periods most clubs do, what we mustn’t turn on the manager or the owners we all want the same thing success for our club but it is going to take time.

Agree2 Disagree0

08 Oct 2020 17:11:51
Another website has suggested Lansbury might be on his way, possibly via a loan deal to a Championship club.

I have also read that if a new club cannot be found, he may be paid off in a similar severance arrangement to Jota/ Nyland.

The problem here seems to lie with the combination of Championship standard performances versus Premier League wages.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

09 Oct 2020 12:21:39
Local press have suggested Villa are looking for potential exits for fringe players Guilbert, Lansbury and El Ghazi. This could be another re-hash article, but could also be seen as a catalyst for a further addition being sought from the EFL.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Oct 2020 21:45:02
Nyland gone contract terminated by mutual consent.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

06 Oct 2020 07:52:26
I think their were signs of a decent keeper In Nyland, but his skills seemed to be undermined by a lack of confidence.

I hope he sorts out his back injury and finds another club quickly.

Agree1 Disagree0

05 Oct 2020 18:50:57
Apparently Rashica was all bit signed by BL but couldn’t agree on price? Ed is this true? Will his agent be scrambling for a move to England now?

{Ed002's Note - The transfer window has closed in Germany. The issue will be do AV want to sign a player who wants to be elsewhere and they have not been able to agree a deal with do far - and without a medical? Or maybe way and try for Benrahma (which stiles me as a better option).}

Believable2 Unbelievable0

05 Oct 2020 19:53:30
Totally agree Ed - how does that craig david song go “I’m walking away “😬 Benrahma all day long for me. Rashica seems like a transfer Judas.

{Ed002's Note - I don't know what a Craig David is.}

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Oct 2020 20:30:44
WE have £24m from the monies stated for getting players into the squad.
Benrahma could be an option at a fare price if Franks would accept £24m.
Generally fees are ridiculous so one last push may secure a player that is/ was coveted by Deano and many on this site.
He is imaginative, quick and scores. What more do we want?
Watkin was a chance that proved right.
Surely worth a dip into the coffers.
