I am watching Villa and all the players are trying there just not good enough. let's not forget even our owners said we was 2 years ahead of what was planned. They brought the club then 6 months later there in the prem they spent what they was aloud we didn't get great players because we had 150 million to buys a whole squad.

Now we have a base we have something to work with now we can go buy better quality. I say stick with Dean Smith Rome wasnt built in a day. If they weren't trying i would say yeah sack him but they are so let's give him another season! 1 thing i would do is sack Terry can't see what he does you have a manager an a number 2 you do not need 2 assistents.

You been on the wacky backy walkies hahaha?
Now you want to keep Deano, because the players are trying.
I love your empirical hypothesis, very interesting walkies.

26 Jun 2020 17:50:55
Just seen the 15 players we've released, what's the point of the academy if all its there for is to bring through players we then disregard who'll get snapped up, just goes to show deano and the management team have no faith in our own 'star finding' academy, the mind boggles.

And if they did play them and they were crap you’d moan saying they weren’t good enough. Outside of Albrighton there hasn’t been a player from our youth team who has left and performed at the level we would need them to, stop moaning for moaning sake, if they aren’t good enough they aren’t good enough.

26 Jun 2020 18:41:38
We have been saying it for weeks 82.
Its the mindset of the club, years and years this sort of thing has been going on, back since the days of Doug Ellis.
It has to change.

26 Jun 2020 19:36:35
Not many managers are brave enough to play youngsters go threw all teams in prem and how many blood youngsters Chelsea, lpool and Norwich and man utd, personally I'd play them dave and let them grow of course the would make mistakes but it's part of learning for them.

26 Jun 2020 19:43:59
This "cull" is for players who should be breaking down the door of the 1st team not knobbing about getting a game here and there in the lower leagues. This will hopefully be a watershed moment for our next batch of youth and not hindered by 20 odd year olds in their way who are probably too good for the u23s but not good enough for the 1st team.
A plan is in place, just needs time to take root.

27 Jun 2020 08:32:39
I hope you are right Moose we are more likely to hold on to our own talented youngsters as well as attracting others if they think they have a chance of transitioning to the first team rather than stagnate in the reserves.

Sean dyche apparently has fallen out with burnley owner and is looking to leave burnley at the end of the season. Villa went for him before smith rumour has it.

What do el ghazi and trez offer?
Very little, poor crossing, average pace, lack of effort tracking back. We would be a much more solid unit if they didn't play.

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Jun 2020 18:42:55
Mate the both useless waste of money we should of brought in our youth and blood them properly give them 30. Games let feel the highs and lows it would make them better.

24 Jun 2020 17:13:45
Just seen the team line up not good trez In midfield and elghazi starting not good no pace and only 1 striker upfront.

Agree0 Disagree0

It's a new formation he's trying out, it's not like it's last chance saloon or anything fella!

24 Jun 2020 19:33:46
It's not a new formation mate it's the same we always play.

24 Jun 2020 20:08:23
My bad, my really rubbish attempt at being sarcastic inferring whoever he puts in, still the same way of playing, I'm just off to buy a custard pie to push into my face!

22 Jun 2020 13:03:48
Slept on my frustration and this morning I still feel as disappointed and frustrated. I accept this is pretty typical now and we are going down with a whimper. I would imagine we will cash in on Jack mcginn and Heaton, who are the only three that will get in a premier league side. The rest are ready for the struggle at the top of the championship. The owners backed Smith and it didn't work out. There have been far more successful managers who have been sacked so I struggle to see how people are still backing him. The last two games have shown how predictable we are and I can't see anything changing. So we will be back where we deserve to be along with Norwich and Bournemouth. The only difference we have spent a fortune and got no return on the investment this equates to failure in any walk of life. I will renew my season ticket because Villa are in my blood, I just wish some of the over paid overrated bunch of players cared as much.

And me Scotty, woke up with a bloody headache, the sky was full of rain, and the wife wanted me to clean the windows, inside of course.
That`s what being a Villa fan is mate.

22 Jun 2020 07:42:08
Dean Smith = all the gear, no idea-and remember this boys and girls, if we get relegated then we'll be scrutinised big time on our finances, the efl have long memories and rules that suit them-not us.

Theres a break in ffp next season but does that include championship clubs?

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jun 2020 08:27:54
It has to be all clubs. No club can be self sustainable for a whole season if for a large chunk of that season they either can't have fans or are only permitted up to around 25% capacity.

They may still run the rule over ffp but using a 3 year period not including seasons affected by the virus. That means at least for next season and probably one after there would be no reviews as they've already been done.

21 Jun 2020 12:10:36
So when we go down if we want we can spend 200 million to get back up?

21 Jun 2020 13:25:55
Spending 200 million guarantees nothing.
Need a blueprint to restructure the whole club.
A system. Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern, Liverpool, Wolves. Its all about getting the infrastructure right and the rest follows. Everyone knows their job and no one is indespensable.

21 Jun 2020 16:47:18
I would hazard a guess that they may investigate that clubs don't double or triple their wage expenditure during that period just because they aren't reviewed against their losses to stop people taking the micky.
Just wouldn't penalize them for losses outside of their control as difficult to prove what their ticket income would have been. Also a risk of sponsorships reducing dramatically without people in stadiums.

23 Jun 2020 08:00:38
I absolutely agree that we need a blue print to follow as at the moment I am not sure everyone is singing from the same hymn sheet, the CEO talks about us developing a class youth infrastructure and we do have some more than useful kids and yet they struggle to even get on the bench despite our struggles. If we do get relegated then I think we will lose some of our more talented players Grealish McGinn Mings etc we can also get rid of some who aren’t good enough like El ghazi Trezuget Engels Elmo and a few others and bring some of the youngsters in like Ramsey O hare (if we can keep him) and augment with a few quality players currently plying there trade in the Championship like Lolley and Worrall from Forest Karlem Grant at Huddersfield and we will be ok.
However I know I keep banging on about this but changing. managers every year or two means we will achieve nothing our blue print should have key milestones against which the manager and board can be assessed against and imo the plan needs to be long term ie at least 5 years long. Whilst premiership status is important it is not the be all and end all the club needs to be on a sound footing not least financially to ensure our future long term as given where football is currently I do fear for some clubs and I don’t want us to be one of them.

Having got that off my chest I hope everyone is well and let’s keep hoping for a miracle UTV.

23 Jun 2020 14:45:35
I do agree with everything you say John, and I think a lot of people do to be honest.
The bit about changing managers in theory is ideal I agree, but the way things have gone, I am a bit reluctant to stick with Deano, because of his steadfast ways an lack of enterprise.
I like the man a lot, but nothing changes, it appears he might be a yes man or is frightened of any backlash
Either way, for that reason youth will struggle to break through under Him.
One thing is for sure John, we must get rid of Terry ASAP.

23 Jun 2020 16:28:37
Dave you might be right on the yes man front but I am a great conspiracy theorist and I wonder whether the plan has all along been to get Deano to school Terry and at an appropriate time replace him with Terry I hope to god that’s not the case but I fear as soon as we are relegated that’s what will happen.

With regards to the kids he always seemed prepared to do it at Walsall and Brentford Rico Henry springs to mind but I guess it’s a little different when you have no money and therefore little option versus having plenty of options at a bigger club the only manager in recent times who seemed to be prepared to play a youngster or two Jack being the classic example was Tim Sherwood.

23 Jun 2020 18:10:43
A couple of good points there John, and can`t argue mate.
I would be very concerned if Terry got the managers job, that for me would be another step back, with a sprinkle of wishful thinking.

23 Jun 2020 18:45:48
If we do go down and Deano is replaced the interesting thing will be who by because I can’t think of too many stand out candidates.

23 Jun 2020 19:16:42
How about going German on a 3/ 5 year plan.
I give you Julian Nagelsmann, RB Leipzigs Manager.

{Ed002's Note - Why on earth would he be interested in joining AV.}

23 Jun 2020 19:48:21
I don`t know Ed, maybe he has aspirations of joining a very big club.
just a suggestion, we need to do something, a young manager like him might be what everyone needs, us and the manager.

{Ed002's Note - Zero chance of him joining Aston Villa from a Champions League side.}

23 Jun 2020 20:14:49
Well the thing is, we will probable not approach him, so we will never know will we.
To be honest I would be surprised if Leipzig progress far in the tournament anyway, but good luck to them.
So on that note, I think if Villa did offer him the post, I have no doubt he would sit down and make some serious considerations, as to what is possible at such an illustrious football club as ours.

{Ed002's Note - They will be in it regularly.}

23 Jun 2020 20:28:10
Ok, time will tell.

23 Jun 2020 21:42:46
For me I think we would have to set our sights a bit lower in the managerial stakes so for me my first choice would be Bilic international experience managed in premiership and the championship with better than average results whether he would come to us not sure but if you don’t ask you won't know. Failing that I think I would take a punt on Steven Gerrard although I never was his biggest fan he seems to be doing a decent job at Rangers.

23 Jun 2020 22:09:30
I think Gerrard is cutting his teeth ready for Liverpool, Clopp is going in two years I think.

19 Jun 2020 18:33:32
My team for against Chelsea formation 4 3 1 2 Gk Nyland rbk elmo lbk targett cbks mings konsa. Central midfield 3 of mgcinn luis nycamba attacking mid grelish 2 strikers davis an samata. Grelish would play a free role and in my view that's our best formation. I belive we have a good squad just wrong formation.

Our wingers elgazi an trez are ok but grelish is never a winger so playing without wingers will help because the full backs can bomb forward. Chelsea are a great side so no matter what irs gona be tough but we can't make mistakes again the big teams. So what do you think boys.
