So we are apparently going to test the water with 15million bid for McNeil from Burnley. I can see them wanting double that so i would say a deal around 22-28 mill may get it done and dusted. I hope this can be sorted as I think he would give us some much needed balance in the team and would certainly help us going forward. My opinion obviously what are other view to this.

Really? Where'd you hear that Rob? I'd love McNeil, always impressed me when I watched Burnley.

Just been reading it online. It was that football insider, that’s why I was a bit amazed by the 15 million pound offer. As I said can easily see it nearly 20 mill plus for him.

Young English winger playing regularly in the premier league, add in Burnley owners previous transfer dealing when rejecting offers/ selling players, it will be 30 million plus at a minimum, but I’d guess around 40 million.

That would be without knowing their financial state following CV, which could make a big difference.

I have to say I am not McNeill’s biggest fan to be honest, if you look at his assists this year Traore has more, in terms of goals he has got the same number as Konsa, I think we can do better.

If chuk goes it surely is going to send out the wrong signals to our other youngsters if he goes we might aswell scrap our youth system what is the point as soon as we get a good prospect he goes because lack of 1st team football, I said b4 15/ 20 minutes isn't going to do no harm, I fear chuk could go on as well and play for england like Bellingham aswell, it's obvious he's a talent because most of Europes elite want him and he can't get minutes at villa ita joke if he goes and a player who I'm excited about especially because he comes from our set up its been a while, I hope it's all bs and he sees sense.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 May 2021 22:05:28
He’s got 2+ years on his contract does he not? It’s a bit contradictory that guys are complaining about youngsters getting minutes but in the next breath they are wishing for the big name transfers. he’s 17 and I think people need to get a grip of themselves, Bellingham left the blue noses cause they are a selling club we are NOT a selling club under current ownership he’s going nowhere he will get plenty of game time next season which will settle him and he will sign a new contract once he turns 18 just wait and see.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 May 2021 23:46:17
It's 100% BS, he is under contract and there will absolutely be a path to the first team for him - I think we need to relax about Chukwuemeka, he's clearly a talent and will be a massive asset for Villa very soon but we need to be patient.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 May 2021 08:48:11
I hope you are right, however try putting yourself in his shoes, he is getting plaudits right left and centre re his ability and how he’s probably the best for his age in the UK if I was hearing that message at his age, I would want to be testing myself at a higher level, he looks around and sees what has happened to other youngsters like Bellingham and thinks that could be me in 12 months given the chance (I know we are not a selling club like Blues but to a certain extent that doesn’t matter if the player wants to move the power rests with him) and IF certain promises have not been fulfilled for whatever reason then if I was him I think I would press the exit button, he is not like Jack a lifelong Villa fan he has no overall allegiance to the club.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 May 2021 10:54:43
John the reality is none of us know what conversations are happening behind the scenes - He's engaged with the first team and if he was running riot during training and Dean Smith and staff have totally ignored him and never discussed a progression plan to senior football then yeah, absolutely he would want to go, but do we honestly believe that is happening? This kid was earmarked 12-18 months ago as the best 16 year old in England by the Chief Exec of the football club, they know how good he is and will 100% have a plan in place. We are revamping our Academy, spending millions on it, we aren't going to lose the first great prospect it has produced, I'm confident of that.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 May 2021 11:10:34
As I said BK I sincerely hope you are right, and I hope the story is as you say bs but I worry that the old adage about no smoke without fire might apply but as I say I am sure the close season will see us establish the true position one way or the other.

Anybody read the interview with, Uli Hoeness? He says Bayern charge their fans £104 for a seasOn ticket . He says we could charge them £300, but to us that means an extra £2m, But to the fans, the difference is huge . Bayern do not see their fans as, cows to be milked, that is the difference with England. Now with all the greed in football, how refreshing is that.
Onwards&Upwards Villaforever.

A very well run club and some morals about them also, was also nice to see them not jump on the super league bandwagon.

I have been monitoring with great interest, the unwinding of the story surrounding Carney Chukwuemeka.
The more I read into it, the more I feel there is great substance to the story, and we could indeed lose him.
This story could be the beginning of a far bigger picture, a picture that will prove what some of us have been saying for a very long time.
Although we appear to be making progress with the development of young talent, I fear it will not be used for the benefit of our own club.
I hate to say it, but I think there is a lot of porkies and false hope, being showered on our youngsters and fans.
I will say it again, our young players need to be shown belief, and given the chance to play on the stage they crave.
To the top people and management at Villa park, "WAKE UP".

Spot on dave I've been saying for weeks we need to look at them in the first team or they will go. Not all together but one at a time. Chuck, Barry and a couple of others between now and the end of the season.

Genuinely interested where you have done more reading into this. And what other sources you’ve been able to access? It’s been known for a long while that many of England and Europe’s biggest clubs held an interest in Carney. they did BEFORE he signed his contract only a little over 6 months ago.

Since signing that deal, he has promoted to train with the first team regularly (one of those to miss the Liverpool FA Cup game due to being part of the first team bubble), he’s travelled with the squad, and made the bench twice at the age of 17.

We are not Blues. if we were in their position I’m sure he’d have been in the side at a bottom-half championship club, same as Bellingham was for them. Reality is we are many, many levels above them. So it’ll be much harder to break into the first team.

Given he’s a part of the squad, if he was ready to start. he would. Smith has shown his willingness to trust young players in how he’s utilised JJ. I find it bizarre that we’d encourage a mentality to force management to pick a player who’s only shown in U18 FA Youth Cup games that he has promise, but not yet that he’s necessarily ready for the EPL.

The only story I’ve seen remains that Football Insider BS that’s been regurgitated across a number of sites but had zero substance. Broken promises? What promises could have been made that can possibly have been broken?

I’d say. have some faith. Dean has said there’s a plan for him. He, and Kesler-Hayden, will be the next two to follow in JJ’s footsteps, and will be involved in pre-season, and in the cup games next season. They’ll get on the bench. And when they are ready, they’ll play.

I think the club is absolutely doing everything right in terms of the academy investment, the recruitment, and the new performance centre. Big things are happening.

Ant, when I say read into it, I mean I use my own intuition, and imagination, combined with information from friends and also the media.
I have seen probably 10 different snippets on the subject, so I can only say look around, you will no doubt find them.
I am not saying its fact, what I have said is, I feel more inclined to believe there is something is in it, therefore I would not be surprised if it were true.
Personally I don`t buy into this, if we were this, and we were that, get them blooded.
Ant, I am like you as far as information is concerned, I read what I am presented with, you then make of it what you will.
And in my opinion, I don`t think we show enough faith in our young talent.

After they made it to the youth cup final it was agreed by first team coaches, youth team coaches and a select 4 or 5 youth team players that would potentially be in the first team match day squad (as they had been) that they no longer would be in order to keep that squad together and give them the best chance of winning the final. Hence why since the Baggies game, non of them have been involved👍.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 May 2021 19:06:33
Well we won’t have to wait too long to find out whose right.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 May 2021 19:09:48
100% agree Ant, I'd be absolutely AMAZED (capitals for emphasis LOL) if there isn't a plan in place for our youth set up - This isn't Villa of 10 years ago, the club is being rejuvenated top to bottom behind the scenes and I'd be shocked if the people in charge have made such a glaring error in judgement. Fully expect Chukwuemeka to get first team minutes pre season, and integrated into the squad when fully ready. Also, and this complete speculation, but he may be the reason why we only loaned a creative mid in the summer, either way I trust the club.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 May 2021 19:13:52
Yeah I can understand that mentality chris, and fully support it mate.
But that also proves that although Chukky was on the bench, he was never going to get on the pitch anyway.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 May 2021 21:09:28
I think the last time he was on the bench was just before their semi final win against Newcastle, I think anyway, which would explain it.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 May 2021 21:48:56
Yes mate I think you are right.
You seem a bit down chris, are you ok mate.
Its strange because I can sense something in your posts.

06 May 2021 22:10:08
It’s all hearsay, he’s going nowhere unless it’s for stupid money wit huge sell on clauses. just paper rubbish. it’s a bit like that part in JANGO UNCHAINED “ why do they call him Eskimo joe? I don’t know maybe he said he was cold 1 time” 😂😂 papers and dodgey sites talking their usual rubbish, they get maybe 1 in 20 transfer rumours correct.

I. Would. Buy Tammy McNeil Axel. Ox from Liverpool and back up for Targett.

Some guy on Twitter having a dig at 'small' English clubs being able to attract players ahead of Italian 'giants'. using Leicester (potentially) signing Gosens ahead of Milan as an example. Then says about Rodrigo De Paul to Leeds. and Milinkovic-Savic from Lazio to Villa 😳

It's not a link. Not even a rumour. But if it was in any way possible to get him, we absolutely should. A physical presence in midfield and takes a wicked free kick. And a massive statement of intent.

06 May 2021 10:55:25
You can guess what's coming next Ant? 🤔😁.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 May 2021 11:58:42
We can dream. 😂

Seen a report that Liverpool are willing to sell Oxlade-Chamberlain for £17m. Which means they’d likely take less. Worth a punt?

Agree0 Disagree0

06 May 2021 13:12:23
Sooner a loan with option to buy for Ox, brilliant player but can’t stay fit. Think there’d be a queue if he was available mind.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 May 2021 13:36:08
The Ox to injury prone for me, and by the way to quote another regular poster on here ‘Villa won’t be buying Milinkovic-Savic’.
