Forget the 1st march as we will have our pants pulled down and our little butts spanked raw by Man city. I will personally donate £50 to the eds chosen charity if we win (You lot will not let me away with that wee bet) . Every team in the land know how to beat us but we change nothing. Like taking candy from a baby. Thank God for some of those other results today.
Borjo Bastan brings back memories of Bosko Balaban God love us.

Balaban him an djemba djemba worst players I've seen at villa park and Stefan beinleinch aswell 😂😂😂😂.

02 Feb 2020 13:17:28
We are not doing well admitted, and things need to change quick, but
how you have the nerve to ridicule someone before they have stepped on to the training ground astounds me, and you should be ashamed of yourselves.
Glad I am not a neighbour of either of you.

02 Feb 2020 14:48:51
Dave it's banter come on mate.

02 Feb 2020 15:28:47
Its easy to say that, people say that when they realise they have offended someone, oh I was only joking.
Would you think it was banter if it was said about you.
The guy is Spanish, he wants to hear people welcoming him, not comparing him to a waste of time.
Give him a chance.

Dave is absolutely right guys, however I share your frustration, we tend to lash out often unfairly when we are angry and frustrated. We all want our new signings to be successful, however history is not on our side. So give the guy a chance and if it doesn't work blame Smith and others. Based on this season's signings it certainly doesn't look promising and like you guys many enjoyed the championship, my grandson's for definite. My view if we do go down I don't think we have shown enough skil and determination and will be remembered as one season failures and that will take some getting over. Saturday game showed far too many weaknesses and highlighted how opposition coaches have sussed us out. Howe obviously looked how Jack and Targett hurt Leicester down the left, Targett wasn't able to influence the game. We have to be able to change things and I think this is where Smith shows his weaknesses.

02 Feb 2020 18:05:49
Thank you Scotty, that`s all I like to hear mate.
I know its not looking good, and like you I am not happy, I am sure deep down you know that.
Good post mate.

11 Feb 2020 22:03:01
I couldn’t care less if I offend any of you.
The fact is we’ve signed a waste of space in Baston and there's 5yrs of proof to back that up b

If you want to delude yourself into thinking we might have someone (Baston) who might suddenly start playing to a half decent standard anything other than Saturday league then carry on on BUT why you think everyone should be so happy to have such a waster turn up at VP is beyond me!

I beg the footballing gods to prove me wrong but i'm almost certain hat Baston will struggle to play more than 5 full games for us this season let alone score 5gls.

31 Jan 2020 23:39:11
Christ. we rejected a deal for Odion Ighalo.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Feb 2020 07:56:28
Yes at £100,000 a week!
I wouldn’t have wanted him at that price.

01 Feb 2020 19:17:50
If he scores goals he’d be worth more than that imo.

31 Jan 2020 18:28:33
Borja Baston!
Can't say I know anything about this fella but I cannot believe this is anything but a last minute panic buy. If true and he signs I hope he is a success but really, Borja Baston!

Agree1 Disagree0

31 Jan 2020 18:50:14
He is on the way to Villa Park for a medical.

31 Jan 2020 18:57:10
All in all it’s a pathetic jan window
Makes it worse is when teams like Sheffield Utd are spending 22 million on a quality young player and West Ham 20 million on Bowen who’s class.

We get Samatta and baston.
Our recruitment team / scouts are s##t.

31 Jan 2020 19:02:41
If he does the business Johhny, I don`t care if he is a panic buy, or a buy one get one free buy.
He will do for me, I am optimistic and you never know he could be a gem.
I have no doubt the knockers will be getting ready.

31 Jan 2020 19:13:56
You need to chill Malc.
Are you a pessimist mate, because you are complaining without evidence.

31 Jan 2020 19:19:31
Apparently Suso knew him from his early days. We'll see. Let's hope Suso has earned his money with this left field pick.
At least he's a striker and you never know, these things can come off.

31 Jan 2020 20:02:21
Prep for championship.

31 Jan 2020 20:13:38
Whatever happens with the rest of the season good or bad, Suso as sporting director has not in my opinion earned the significant salary he has taken. I would be very surprised if he is still with us next season.

31 Jan 2020 20:26:01
Villadave listen to what the Swansea fans are saying
“ a Spanish Connor Wickham”
You telling me that you are happy with our signings this window?
End of the day our recruitment has been shocking since the summer and the one factor that every relegated team has is poor recruitment.
£140 million on 12 plus signings averaging around 10 million per player in the premiership is piss poor.

31 Jan 2020 20:29:30
Dub. do you really have no faith in our side?

31 Jan 2020 20:49:22
Malc, no I am not over the moon with this latest signing nor Drinkwater, but Samatta I am very happy with him.
As far as what the Swansea fans think I don`t give a rats arse what they think.
If you are taking notice of what they thinking, well they think Swansea are better than Villa, how do you feel about that?

31 Jan 2020 20:53:22
No not really
End of the day if your players aren’t up to scratch then you deserve what you get.
What have the following teams all got in common?
Sheffield Utd
All have great recruitment and scouts

What do the following have in common
Aston Villa
West Ham
All have poor recruitment.

31 Jan 2020 20:55:49
You know, we shouldn't pre-judge, for all we know this could prove to be a master stroke. He had an excellent season with Eiber in la Liga a few seasons ago, scoring 18 goals in 36 matches.
It could be that he just didn't fit in with Swansea's style of play. He is described as being an excellent finisher but lacks pace.
On the face of it, it's underwhelming, I must admit I would have preferred Bowen, but hey, give him a chance, you just never know.

31 Jan 2020 21:19:30
Pointless debating any further Mate.
Again I reiterate, I will not judge until I have seen the product.
Not over one or two games or hear-say.

31 Jan 2020 21:23:57
Not the most inspiring signing in the world but he adds some cover up front and he’s free.

31 Jan 2020 21:24:54
Paperwork is complete, just medical to be done and he will be a Villa player. Personally I will be interested to see how he gets on. If he scores or creates a few goals and gains us a few more points then I will be happy.

31 Jan 2020 21:27:22
Damn right mate it is what it is yes we're a big club by history and other stuff but at the moment we're not we are a new prem team and have to build again by staying in this league and being competitive every season then we will get back to where we all should be pushing for top7 only if we get our scouting right.

31 Jan 2020 21:28:52
Thought I was on my own Mark, well said mate.

01 Feb 2020 02:12:12
This Baston has a poor record over the last 5yrs so I’m not impressed at all.
Struggled in the championship and already failed in the prem after Swansea paid big money for him.

Easy to say give him a chance but we can afford to take chances on players like him.
This Suso was supposed to have the contacts and pulling power to get good pedigree footballers into the club.
that isn’t happening so what’s the point of him being there!? I could have called Swansea and offered them a tenner and they’d have ripped my hands off for him.

Absolutely mugged off!

01 Feb 2020 10:26:24
You are entitled to your opinion Shane, but that is rubbish mate.
Ian Wright, Klose, And Drogba were producing the same sort of form until they were given a chance.

01 Feb 2020 14:03:17
Peter Withe springs to mind as well. He wasn't a big achiever when Cloughie signed him, when he was 25. I dare say there were more than a few Forest fans who raised their eyebrows and were underwhelmed at the time.
2 league titles and 2 European cups later, I wonder how many Forest fans were critical of him signing Withe then.

01 Feb 2020 16:58:44
I'd also like to point out that he is a free transfer so that officially makes Suso an infinitely better negotiator than Shane who'd have paid a transfer fee.
Extrapolation means we've probably saved around £1billion having Suso in charge rather than Shane. Good business if you ask me.

02 Feb 2020 06:03:25
Yeah call me out on the tenner comment that’s a great way to win the debate lol

Wright Klose scored goals everywhere they went so I don’t quite get what you’re saying?
Football now isn’t like the 70s-80s- 90s where clubs could go sign a ‘nobody’ or an untested player from non league football or from a poorer club an turn him in to a star. Just doesn’t happen nowadays.
Bastón is not a Vardy/ Wright. He has had 5yrs of doing absolutely tosh, chance after chance! Failed! where’s the positivity coming from? He’s proven to be useless for 5yrs lol.
Swansea have been desperate to get rid of him for all of them 5yrs, loaning him out and eventually giving him a free transfer. How are all them facts not giving you lot any cause for concern. Unbelievable! Dreamers!

02 Feb 2020 11:19:43
Chill Shane chill, no need to worry mate.
I had a premonition last night.
It's the last game of the season and we need 3 points to stay up, right. It's 0-0 with 5 minutes to go.
In desperation Deano throws Baston on.
Minutes later Jack tries his luck from outside the box. It looks like it's going wide but it hits Baston on the backside, sends the keeper the wrong way and ends up the wrong way. Villa stay in the premier league. lol.

02 Feb 2020 11:55:34
Sorry, I meant to say the ball hits Batson on the backside sends the keeper the wrong way and the ball ends up in the back of the net .
Too much red wine . lol.

31 Jan 2020 13:03:39
Not doing a kingy, reliable source, no medicals planned at bodymoor today, doesn't mean we can't sign anyone, just makes it less likely.

Agree1 Disagree0

31 Jan 2020 14:08:12
Lol your just jumping on what persy has said and then coming up with that. Come on pls.

31 Jan 2020 16:50:41
Pot. Kettle. Black.

31 Jan 2020 18:11:25
Selke gone to Werder Bremen, shame because he looked useful


30 Jan 2020 20:30:33
Chester going to Stoke on loan been confirmed on sky.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jan 2020 17:46:13
Hertha done deal for piatek must be replacing Seilke so maybe the rumour is true.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jan 2020 16:04:25
Do who think we could get someone from China on a loan basis to the end of the season.

{Ed002's Note - Not unless they are already in Europe. It also seems strange to look to players the club has no interest in that may not be able to get a WP to take on loan.}

Agree1 Disagree0

09 Feb 2020 17:57:57
Villa4Eva will not lose his 50 quid. We'll be well and truly spanked by City. Are there any positive from going to Wembley? Well I hope Nyland keeps his place, he deserves, he got us there. I hope to see Samata upfront, there's a lack of alternatives so that's a certainty. I'd like to see Davis given no less than 30 minutes at Wembley if fit. I'd love to see Vassilev get in on the action too and as an 18-year-old experience playing at Wembley.

The downside's obvious. We'll be lucky to escape with a 5.0 thrashing. That might affect confidence for the rest of the season. Our priority should be to stay up. There's a danger of injuries.

Wouldn't it be great to get a result though!

30 Jan 2020 14:10:52
Villa one of a few clubs talking to davie selke. he's a player we have looked at a few times in the past and I've bought the info to you. Fingers crossed we can get it over the line.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jan 2020 14:54:31
This is all over the web, and to be fair there might be something in it, and is the type we need.
We are one of five clubs paying an interest in him, so again Kingy, not information to the chosen few.
But please keep them coming.

30 Jan 2020 15:10:39
Yes I know this dave just saying as in sure you will remember he's been a target a few times in the past but a deal not been pushed over the line. I've reported this a few times. Selke first choice I've been told but if no deal is reached then a loan for benteke will happen.

30 Jan 2020 15:25:26
Do you know much about him, and any idea of cost.
Also Kingy what is the chances of this going through?

30 Jan 2020 16:52:32
Selkie one goal in 21 appearances, wants away because he is a bum warmer. Interesting that most teams keen are all at the bottom of the premier, IMO not the type of played we should even consider.

30 Jan 2020 18:44:17
Scotty, its obvious you don`t rate this Selkie, why I don`t` know, there is not a lot known about him, other than 2 years ago he was wanted by all.
You and others have been praising Nigel Pearson and his ability to build and stabilise a team, and that Villa should have gone for him, (Pre Wembley) of coarse.
Yet this same Mr Pearson is also after Selkie?
He must surely have something going for him.

30 Jan 2020 19:32:30
I rate selkie if he can get that form bck a few years ago he could be a good signing he's a beast in the air and is quite quick aswell.

31 Jan 2020 05:59:21
Dave selke is a good player mate. he's a target man type that's also very good with his feet. he's 6 4 holds the ball up well and brings others in. He was hot property a few years back but has not progressed as well as some had predicted. I'd say he's a rough diamond that if dean can polish we will have a quality player on our hands. Price I'd say 8 to 10 million.

29 Jan 2020 15:50:21
Looks like Periero is of to Cagliari in Italy.
Another one bites the dust.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jan 2020 16:10:26
That's a pity, let's hope there's somebody at least as good being lined up then.

29 Jan 2020 14:10:00
Allegedly Jota is off to Fulham, maybe Smith will admit that he might have made a mistake. This surely adds substance to the Pereiro rumour being true? If not Pereiro then another winger.

Agree0 Disagree0
