Rashica transfer look8bg unlikely according to reports.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Oct 2020 09:29:24
Smith said after the game, not happening.

05 Oct 2020 10:11:02
Good, leave him where he is.

05 Oct 2020 10:35:23
The one thing I will say about this Rashica move is what I said about the Barkley move Purslow at the start of last week said no more incomings few days later Barkley arrives. So even though smith said No don’t be surprised if we do end up doing some business not saying it be Rashica but I think something will happen.

05 Oct 2020 10:39:20
Back up striker, need to keep our championship striker on his toes 😉


05 Oct 2020 11:26:16
Think we need to move players on first if any more are to come in. Wouldn't be surprised to see a late move for benrahma if we make space in the squad. But ideally I'd like back up defenders for mings/ konsa and targett.

05 Oct 2020 13:36:16
We still have till the 16th to sign players from English sides. So no rush for benrahma, rashica for me is a better player. But looking very unlikely to see him in the claret and blue of villa.

05 Oct 2020 16:26:37
Some of the most credible journalists out there are pushing the Rashica to Villa story. Really stepped up again the last couple of days. And Smith didn’t say ‘no’. he said he didn’t know if there’d be more incomings, but they are working hard on outgoings. Watch this space. After last night it’s easy to say we don’t need a player like Rashica. Where would he play etc. But our bench isn’t strong enough and we don’t want to be stuck with injuries and no options like last year.

05 Oct 2020 16:27:03
The rumour on Rashika is still kicking around from various sources. I've just been on flightradar24 and was getting quite excited tracking a private jet coming in from Bremen. Sadly it looks to be heading for somewhere in the south-east.

05 Oct 2020 17:39:26
Raschica apparently signed for Bayer Leverkusen.

05 Oct 2020 18:03:17
That’s what Bham Mail are saying.

05 Oct 2020 18:11:47
Right guys we move on then, the lad seems to have got what he wanted.

05 Oct 2020 18:16:11
Obviously giving liverpool an ass whuppin and being 2nd is below him 😂😂😂.

05 Oct 2020 18:39:41
Personally I think we moved on from him a while ago.
All the links with him were caused by his club and agent trying to get a good deal on him.

05 Oct 2020 18:55:31
You could be right there Aka.

05 Oct 2020 19:02:47
Raschica deal to Leverwotever has fell through in the past few minutes


05 Oct 2020 19:38:43
Surprise Surprise.

05 Oct 2020 20:03:22
Smith told reporters last night specifically we weren’t one of the teams in for Rashica. Now his move has fell through last minute maybe his agent will come running with lowered demands looking for a move, however as of last night it wasn’t on the table. Percy, Nixon, Evans, Preece - non of the usual suspects have said a peep, think this has just been false hype on the deadest of deadline days.

05 Oct 2020 20:24:14
If he comes crawling on all fours he should be told to bugger off we don’t need or want him.

04 Oct 2020 16:42:17
Something somewhere about rashica again 🤦🏻‍♂️.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Oct 2020 16:57:45
Do we think it’s something to with the fact these reports are coming from sky, and sky own a gambling site which offers odds on this? 🤔.

{Ed002's Note - Sky don’t own a gambling site.}

04 Oct 2020 17:10:38
Says Leeds and Southampton are trying to get him too aparantly. Personally I can't wait for the European transfer deadline to pass so we can move on from the rashica talk. If we manage to shift a couple of players on we should move for benrahma imo understanding with Watkins would be ideal.

04 Oct 2020 17:36:53
Sky bet Ed?

{Ed001's Note - they sold it, I think they have a 10% stake now.}

04 Oct 2020 17:34:49
Eds do you know of any concrete offers for rashica today.

{Ed002's Note - I cannot answer that but several sides including Aston Villa are keen - it may come down to the players choice.}

04 Oct 2020 17:47:47
Apparently we’re in advanced talks now

Deal imminent.

04 Oct 2020 18:03:45
Ahhh cheers Ed.

04 Oct 2020 18:07:26
If we see him on TV tonight at the game, then I’ll believe it, exciting stuff though


04 Oct 2020 20:17:48
Cheers eds.

05 Oct 2020 17:24:55
Saints have gone for Walcott. I know he plays down the right, not the left, but I can't imagine them signing both, especially with Redman also at the club.

My 5p is on Rashica not coming to B6. TBH I am sick of the story and think he has shown minimal commitment to the move.

I have always felt our budget was likely to be around £75-80M, rather than the £100M quoted in the Sun. No insight, purely a feel in my water, which is more reliable than the press most of the time.

05 Oct 2020 17:59:47
Rashica to Bayer Leverkusen seems to be the latest snippet.

04 Oct 2020 16:39:38
Sky in Germany claim a deal for rashica is very close. Negotiations at very advanced stage.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Oct 2020 16:57:27
If true, that will finish the window off perfectly 😁😁

Now let’s go and beat Liverpool UTV.

04 Oct 2020 18:20:43
If Villa buy him and he will play the LW. Grealish will play the LM. Luiz and McGuinn takes the other places in midfield. Isn’t Barkley then a expensive man on the bench?

04 Oct 2020 18:59:31
If we signed Rashica I think we would play 3 in midfield. Luiz, Mcginn and Barkley. Grealish wide, Rashica would play same as Grealish but opposite flank. Watkins up front. I think Traore and Trezeguet would be on the bench or not depending on performances.
Anyway we're getting ahead of ourselves. Not signed him (or Benrahma) yet.

04 Oct 2020 09:19:05
Possible cheap option left back cover-Barry Douglas leeds. Liked him when he was at wolves and was gutted when he went to Leeds for about 5 million, think at the time we missed a trick. Met him in the post office in sedgley. Apparently he's available too, surely an upgrade on Taylor 🤔.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Oct 2020 10:15:32
Definite upgrade on Taylor, but he starts for Leeds so can't see how he’d be available.

04 Oct 2020 11:07:04
I don’t think Douglas has been in any of Leeds premiership squads to date.

04 Oct 2020 11:36:48
Read it somewhere Chris and Dallas started ahead of him yesterday.

04 Oct 2020 12:00:41
According to the Mail, Watford are in advanced talks to sign Douglas.

04 Oct 2020 13:09:34
Good shout Moose, Mark we could still intervene and make an offer surely.

04 Oct 2020 13:23:44
It would certainly be worth asking the question, surely we've got to be a better option than Watford. Apparently he was quite settled in sedgley and was a bit shocked to be sold.

04 Oct 2020 13:28:06
I hate to say this but Wolves are getting an absolute cracker in Ait Nouri from Angers. On loan for the season with the option to buy. Why couldn’t we have got him on the same terms?
I’ve been really pleased with our dealings in this window but considering how weak we are in the left back position, I do feel that a great opportunity has been missed here.

04 Oct 2020 13:44:08
Don’t ask me why, I was thinking of Dallas when it clearly says Douglas😂.

04 Oct 2020 15:45:48
Speaking of Dallas, Sue Ellen shot JR 😳😁.

03 Oct 2020 22:22:23
News now have articles saying we bid 9 million to Copenhagen for victor nelsson and also bid for de siglio from juve, I understand nelsson but why would we sign another right back🤔.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Oct 2020 23:53:34
Exactly why would we? BS.

04 Oct 2020 09:20:43
Apparently he can play left back as well as right, but I do agree that this is bs particularly as his weekly wage is £91k. and I can’t see why he would take a salary cut or why we would pay that type of money for him.

03 Oct 2020 10:23:06
Jota has been released. Not surprised never really got going in the Premiership. Hope we do get some business done but feel we won't see any more incomings.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Oct 2020 10:54:26
Smells like a bit of poor planning to me, he came off the bench on Thursday night fgs!

03 Oct 2020 11:48:56
Mind you, Barkley was on the bench for Chelski the night before he was announced as a Villa player 😀.

03 Oct 2020 12:15:15
Jota’s departure makes sense for both parties. I wish the player well.

I wonder if Nyland and, just possibly, Lansbury are considering similar arrangements.

Smith has said he wants two players for every position (GK and ST aside), so Lansbury‘s loss would create a hole to fill. That could get covered by Ramsey (J) or an additional new face. At the moment, I would still err towards the ex-Forest player staying, but the recent Twitter attacks might have coloured his judgement otherwise.

Smith’s recent interview hinted some players (plural) might now prefer to move on following the recent recruitment drive. Severance by mutual agreement could appeal to some, where they have little prospect of playing and would not command much of a fee. If the player feels the time is right, he may see a benefit from negotiating elsewhere as a free agent.

Kalinic is the tricky one because his deal runs until 2023.

03 Oct 2020 12:37:09
Smith said any outgoing players maybe the key to anymore incoming. We can't stockpile players, especially ones who aren't going to play in Prem.
Maybe, just maybe we will see one more signing before the deadline.
Benrahma would/ could be that final piece.
Watching him Thursday I must say he was impressive and certainly put himself in the shop window.
Fingers crossed.

05 Oct 2020 18:31:22
VillaMole (Twiiter) has suggested Smith is keen to move on El Ghazi, Guilbert and Lansbury by 23:00 if possible. The latter may be paid off in a similar manner to Jota if he remains after closure of the EFL window.

02 Oct 2020 22:09:02
King was absent tonight at the stadium of doom with a migraine, so he is obviously on the move just wonder where he is off to, kingy. WTW any ideas.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Oct 2020 22:21:59
Tottenham were supposedly front runners for King and they’ve just signed striker Carlos Vinicius from Benfica.
Will this clear the path for Villa?

02 Oct 2020 23:41:35
I think it might well do Mark, its certainly looking likely.

03 Oct 2020 22:40:29
I think Spurs are favourites. They have a lot less cover in the front 3 and seem to be more desperate to push a deal.
We gave enough interchangeable options and with Smiths preference to get goals from midfield and wide I think he'll be happy keeping Keinan as back up.

03 Oct 2020 22:44:05
Hadn't seen that they've signed Vinicius. Not convinced King would be looking to play second fiddle for us though.

05 Oct 2020 20:39:35
Torino’s low bid for King was rebuffed earlier today. However, I think Smith had moved on a while ago from this option. The Barkley deal seems to have shaped the manager’s thinking, particularly with Grealish remaining on the left flank.

02 Oct 2020 13:47:44
There is a rumour circulating that we are still interested in Marc Roca from Espanyol, though I struggle to see how we accommodate another central midfielder, especially now we've signed Barkley 🤔.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Oct 2020 16:47:25
Yeah I have seen this more than once MD, I think the only thing behind it, might have something to do with the interest being shown in Nakamba.
If that happens we will need cover, so maybe we are in fact thinking of moving Marvelous out.

02 Oct 2020 17:20:36
Would you let Nakamba go Dave? I like him, he’s always give it his all and I think he could develop into a realy good player, not sure I’d let him go! There’s definitely others I’d like to see go before him mate.

02 Oct 2020 18:13:58
I have seen a video on-line today where Smith refutes this link.

02 Oct 2020 18:27:15
81 Nakamba is very good at breaking play up and has energy I'll give him that and can obviously do a job winning the ball but, to me anyway, he's so predominantly left footed that he has to turn full circle to get to release the ball if it's on his weaker side. It happens so slowly its almost like watching an oil tanker turn and is a weakness that can be exploited, hence why he loses the ball as much as he wins it.

02 Oct 2020 18:30:13
I like him as well 81, that`s a tough one mate.
I totally agree with your take on it.

02 Oct 2020 19:05:52
I get your point Moose, I spend hours with my Son and Son in law talking about left or right footed players.
That affects a lot of players, when I played we were trained on both feet, and the best team I ever played for, every player including the keeper could use both feet.
Even Jack is week on his left foot, Traore his right, Luiz his left, the list goes on and on.

02 Oct 2020 19:26:11
I think for now he's adequate cover and maybe Shakespeare can coach him to improve Dave, but hopefully, as we get better and better a higher quality of DM will be brought in or develop in the youth ranks. However our centre half, left back and striker cover is thin to say the least and should be a priority if we have the funds. Hoping that adding Barkley to Luiz and McGinn in the middle of the park may give Targett some better cover, oh and he stops ball watching instead of keeping an eye on his man.

01 Oct 2020 20:04:14
My lad just shown me, Benrahma second goal tonight, absolute beauty . Nutmegs defender with a back heel, runs round him and bends the ball around the keeper .
Why we haven't followed with our interest I don't know, but he has unbelievable ability.

{Ed002's Note - If there were one more and money can be found, he may be an options. Others will look to him in the coming days.}

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Oct 2020 20:09:45
Because they wanted too much money. simple.

01 Oct 2020 13:56:38
What do people think about the Diego Costa rumours after the back and forth with Terry? Surely he wouldn't come in to be back up of he came at all.

{Ed002's Note - I would not hold my breath.}

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Oct 2020 14:44:58
Haha i wouldn't be stoked at having to play with 10 men every other week when he gets sent off 🤣.

01 Oct 2020 16:53:54
No thanks DC, I hate liabilities mate. 😇.

01 Oct 2020 17:28:33
Definitely not happening.

01 Oct 2020 18:05:35
If Mendes is his agent could it possibly be Cavani? Just putting it out there 🤔.
