In some very random news I've just seen, Carles Gil won newcomer of the year in the MLS with New England Revolution, 10 Goals and 14 Assists. Probably one of the best technical players we've had in the last 5 years, but has absolutely 0 physicality about him. Shame really, seemed a good lad. Fair play to him.

Sounds very much like Jota, perhaps the USA beckons.

I just wonder how many uneducated journalists and fans who thought we had paid over the odds for TM would dare to repeat there views now. Southgate had always said that youth was the future for a successful England, whilst there is some truth in this, experience especially in the heart of defence is every bit as important. Just look at JT, Cahill, Sol Campbell, Rio Ferdinand, most of these played well in their late twenties. So a message to Southgate, stick with Ming's and McGuire and forget Keane and the others you have experimented with and play with a natural left footed centre back. I think and hope TM will be around the England scene for the Euro's and the next world cup. If he is they will be paying more than McGuire and Vandyke to stand a chance of prizing him from VP.

Villa4eva, There is and always has been a problem with the world and society in general.
If we were all blind and deaf there would never have been a problem in the first place.
I will leave that one in the air, and people can summarise it for themselves.

Really proud of our England Team out there in Bulgaria tonight! Well done to Mings on his debut despite the racial abuse! Our great game and any walk of life has no place for this vile and seemingly worsening trend of the far right! UTV.

Just a thought, I hope the contracts our players have signed with Villa are and have (UECs) Unilateral extension clauses.
The reason I say this is because of all the speculation again surrounding John McGinn.
This for me is just the start, and if we maintain our status in the premiership a lot more of our players will attract attention,
Marvelous, Grealish, Guilbert, Engels, to name but a few.
That said a large proportion of our squad have already increased considerably in value.
So for me it now seems a reasonable and logical time to extend all contracts of our playing staff.
We have over the years lost huge amounts of money on players being sold on for peanuts or players just exhausting their contracts.
If we want to deter predatory clubs from poaching our players we need to extend all contracts and include buyout clauses to all.
I am sure Christian Purslow has allowed for this, if he has it needs addressing sooner rather than later.
January can be very bitter.

Most of those only signed in the summer and Grealish got a new deal last season.
We don't want them moving for peanuts but we also shouldn't go back to the O'Neill days where we were tripling a players wages after a couple of good games.

14 Oct 2019 19:06:42
I am fully aware that most were signed in the summer, and that is my reasoning.
We are miles off the O`neill days, we are far better structured.
I have also not mentioned wages, not every player wants more money to sign an extension, agreed it can be a factor but we don`t throw money about like we used too.
Triple wages is a tad excessive is it not.
You obviously don`t agree that`s fine, but clubs stance against players has to start somewhere.

14 Oct 2019 22:06:46
But why renew 3-5 year contracts within 3 months?
An agent is always going to negotiate an increase in a renewal even if it's small.
When Gabby got into the first team he got 2 contract renewals in 1 season going from 10-15k a week to 60k a week which means bare minimum it doubled each time but I'm sure the first one tripled his wages.

15 Oct 2019 08:11:32
When your best players are in their mid twenties and their contracts start running below 3 years, look to renew. If players jump up in importance/ ability (example McGinn) then tie them down to a new deal so their paid fairly and their contract lengths are up to date.

Thank you chris, I new we had something in common mate.

I have just read that the idiot who tweeted bile regarding Jack's brother has been found guilty and had a minor slap on the wrist. The idiot who attacked him wore it as a badge of honour. The judicial system just doesn't sentence people sufficiently for anything to act as a deterrent and ultimately this had absolutely no effect in stopping this type of behaviour.
On a lighter note the magistrate said the life ban imposed on the tweeter was punishment in itself, I personally do not see that as punishment more like a blessing in disguise.

Hi guys
Rangers fan here, l see McGinn scored hat trick. I for one was glad he did not go to Celtic, really rated him at Hibs, looked a player. don't see him very often now, just wondering how he is doing for you guys down there, is he doing well or struggling?

Hi Canada the man's a machine would walk into any top 4 side what's celtuc loss is our gain all the best for the season and keep pushing that penny arcade.

13 Oct 2019 22:33:41
His our best player by a mile mate. The lads truely special!

14 Oct 2019 10:06:07
Cheers guys, l always thought he would end up at celtic with his grandad having been chairman. They got 25 mill for Tierney but would not match hibs asking for JM. Tells you all about the mentality of them. I still think AV got a much better player than gunners did. Hope you can hang onto him guys as lm sure the sharks will circle if he continues to progress. Not sure how he sounds at pressers etc but always came across as a really grounded lad.
All best for your season.

Hope he stays with us because our team at the min is better than man utd. No doubt utd are a bigger club but there squad isn't good enough. UTV.

Walkies, we have a completely different, set up and way of thinking now, we have no need to sell .

A year ago today we layed Sir Doug Ellis to rest what a great owner he was they don't make them like him anymore. I spoke to him many times he was such a kind and caring guy. UTV.

Well said walkies, he was a giant for us and campaigned endlessly behind the scenes promoting football in our region-a colossus and a true football man, many a charity got sizeable donations from him which he never took the credit for, and woe betide anyone who slated not only us, but anything to do with the region or its people, I doff my cap to him with the upmost respect and admiration-God Bless A Great Man and a Gentleman.
