According to reports Sunday's game gone as well.

Probably too early to say, but I wouldn't be surprised if it is called off.

09 Jan 2021 23:07:18
David Brooks is on Dean Smith's hit-list this month. Villa also have their eyes on Reading's Michael Olise.

Smith is keen to add younger players to his squad list in the hope of developing their potential still further and has been given the firepower to move in a depressed market.

- all from Neil Moxley, profile certainly fits with recent activity. Interesting both players can play centrally and out wide in attacking areas. Not sure how reliable Moxley has been in recent windows.

Seen the article Chris and I'd definitely take Brooks, he's a player I've mentioned on here before. Coming back from a serious ankle injury similar to McGinn so probably getting back up to speed. Looks a really useful player and fits the profile just what fee he would command. Don't know anything about the other guy only what I've read in the article.

10 Jan 2021 09:16:09
Seems every man and their dog want Olise Moose, I’m the same as you, never seen him play, but the interest in him is a positive sign.

I’d take Brooks all day long.

10 Jan 2021 09:24:09
I have also mentioned Brooks on here before he would be a great addition adding quality and flexibility to the squad in that he can play in a number of positions either centrally or out wide. In terms of fee I can’t see it being less than £25 million and probably a bit more as I am sure a number of other premier league clubs will be interested if Bournemouth decide to sell which no doubt will drive the price up.

10 Jan 2021 09:39:50
Wasn’t 40 million mooted in the Summer?
Might have to break the transfer record again🤦‍♂️.

10 Jan 2021 09:48:22
So I’ve done some research, apparently Bournemouth wanted 50 million + in the summer for Brooks, which put off a lot of suiters. With their league position I can imagine this would still be the price, unless they have been hit hard with the current struggles in the world, and need cash.

This bring the question, would you rather get ripped off for Brooks, or pay the reported £25million for Buendia? I like the fact Brooks is British and no doubt a good player, but is he really better than Buendia? Does his game suit us more that Buendias? Tough choice I think.

As for Olise, he’s played 23 games this season, 16 times as a starter, very good record for an 18 year old. The highlights videos look brilliant - as usual, Tonev looked like a Bulgarian Messi on YouTube.

I hope we do do some business this window, often we have nothing attacking wise to come from the bench, to change a game. I know with Wesley, Barkley and Trez back fully fit that will change, however we can’t guarantee everyone to be fully fit all the time, so let’s have more options around.

10 Jan 2021 09:53:44
If King leaves, which is looking likely, we may be able to sweeten any deal with the possibility of sending Davis, possibly on loan, the other way? 🤔.

10 Jan 2021 10:08:59
King has hardly featured for Bournemouth so far this season, if at all. It would appear he wants out, and his contract is up in June.
A bargain to be had there, I think.
I read somewhere Bournemouth were interested in taking Davis on loan Moose, so maybe something could be agreed.
Chris, if the asking price difference between Brooks and Buendia is really 25 million, then surely it’s a no brainer.
There’s only a year difference in their ages, and what exactly can Brooks give us that Buendia can’t?

10 Jan 2021 10:27:57
Having said that I’ve just seen that King played yesterday and scored twice. Also apparently Everton are trying to do a deal for King involving a swap, according to Sky Sports.

10 Jan 2021 10:28:56
It does all come down to price but either would be a great addition, Beundia probably offers more versatility in the midfield areas but Brooks is definitely up there in terms of skill. Win win situation whoever we sign and obviously because of age room for further improvement.

10 Jan 2021 10:35:32
No club will pay £50 million for Brooks as good as he appears to be, that’s totally un realistic and I agree with Mark that you would go with Buendia for £25 million however where I think Norwich will come back up I am not convinced Bournemouth will, so I think it may pay to play the waiting game as I can’t see Brooks being prepared to stay in the championship long term and if that’s the case and the player agitates for a move I am sure the fee will come down.

The other thing to consider is if we do sign Brooks or Olise and given the fact that Ramsey is developing and Smith seems happy to have him on the bench whether we ought to be facilitating a move for Hourihane as at his age he needs to be playing first team football, he has been a good servant to the club but he is dropping down the pecking order bit by bit.

10 Jan 2021 10:56:11
Unfortunately John there's little room for sentiment in football anymore and we'll see players who've been staple squad members for the past few seasons moved on with the minimum amount of fuss but a big thank you as we sign others to take us to the next level. We've also got Elmo and Taylor with their contracts up this year but I don't think we'll be going all out to replace them as some of our promising youth defenders may be drafted in as part of their gradual integration into the squad.

10 Jan 2021 15:05:03
You are probably right Moose but that being the case we probably have no right to moan when the players decide to take whatever actions they see fit to further there careers even when it’s at the expense of the club.

10 Jan 2021 15:50:19
£50m? Surely that must be a mistype! The world has gone mad. Have seen a little of Brooks and he is decent but not at that price.
Would expect us to be looking at value if we’re looking at all.
Olise looks a good shout, one for the future but wouldn’t be in our match day squad. Again it will come down to price/ value. January is notorious for premium values.

10 Jan 2021 16:14:19
Its always happened John always will. The time of someone staying at a club for their career is over, unless you're Gabby just taking the cash at the end. If they do move on the world will still keep turning and Villa will be here long after they've been forgotten.
It's up to us as a club to become that successful they won't want to go anywhere else and therein lies the challenge. I'm confident tho that with our owners we're finally on the right road.

05 Jan 2021 21:00:12
Erickson to villa? Surely not, surely usual bs on news now. would he suit us would u like him?

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jan 2021 15:51:26
Oh yeah, definitely take him but I don’t think there is any chance of it happening.

01 Jan 2021 22:23:39
Never a peno for me, so soft. We need to invest in a striker in January, Watkins looks tired and needs a rest (he's be unbelievable so far this season to be fair) .

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Jan 2021 22:01:02
Can't fault them, what a team we have! Proud of them!

Need to see the pen back, to me I was certain he tripped himself up, but commentary made me feel as though I'd missed something.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Jan 2021 13:45:26
Yes I agree chris.

29 Dec 2020 12:32:11
Diego Costa any1 free transfer would be amazing signing if we could get him.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Dec 2020 13:12:31
Where do you play him? Instead of Watkins I don’t think so, if you push Watkins wide then you drop El ghazi or Traore hardly seems fair given their form and one thing for certain he wouldn’t be happy keeping the bench warm. I also think there is a disruptive streak in him which may upset the dressing room so it’s a definite no from me.

29 Dec 2020 13:18:34
Can see him joining the dog heads.

29 Dec 2020 20:58:01
Agree John, he has naughty as a middle name.
Wouldn`t want him warming my seat on the bench, you would get splinters of the pegs. 😁.

20 Dec 2020 18:20:12
Some of you taking the pee owe walkies an apology, strong reliable sources suggest that Konsa was tested positive last week.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Dec 2020 19:03:47
The joke was the “doubt” comment, if he does have C.V. simple thought process from when he last played tells you he isn’t a doubt, he’s out. 😂

Who are these “strong reliable sources”? Why would the club attempt to hide it?

20 Dec 2020 20:14:25
I would think there would be repercussions if they did try and hide it.

20 Dec 2020 21:04:47
Definitely Mark!

20 Dec 2020 21:33:05
He was out simples, never in doubt.

20 Dec 2020 22:55:18
Its players discretion and if his been training with other players we prob didn't want the game call off because his been around them. House told me himself with his brother so everybody elses view doesn't bother me! So if you have genuine info maybe we shouldn't put it up because u just get called a liar well he didn't play i and hause was right!

21 Dec 2020 09:31:52
I don’t know if you struggle to read scottcaffu or you missed the post everyone was referring to. Fortunately as much as he tries WTW can’t change what he already posted, so I’ll c&p for you:

“ Konsa wasnt ill he had Cov19 he is a major doubt 4 tomz game because 10 day isolation. ”

Now if I need to break down to you why people would take the pee, I can, but surely you can work out on your own that if Konsa played against Wolves, he must have passed a CV test, if in the mean time he failed one, that would incur a minimum of 10 day isolation period, as the wolves game was less than 10 days ago, he is not a doubt, he is out completely.

So there was no ‘doubt’ in it, it’s a banter site, if someone says something silly people will have some light hearted fun with it. There’s no need to cry.

21 Dec 2020 17:53:51
No answer yet?

21 Dec 2020 18:46:47
Nope Daz. Smith said again this morning Ezri is ill but on the mend, and they didn’t want the cold weather last night to slow his recovery.

21 Dec 2020 20:54:52
I agree i don't mind the banter but I was definitely not lying about him having C.V. luckly 4 us our chip shop is in a rich area and many footy players come in not all Villa. Hutton was in last week as well with his very fit mrs. The info i get is correct.

Maybe doubt is a wrong word i just no he had C.V. hause didn't say when he tested positive just that he did his brother is a very funny chap. 1 thing i will say is the closeness between seems to be very gud the way they all talk about each other.

21 Dec 2020 23:34:03
Seems a bit odd that the club would be trying to keep something quiet but the players are down in the chippy blabbing about it, for me the believability is zero on that 1 walkies.

22 Dec 2020 15:52:59
You no nothing.

22 Dec 2020 18:09:03
*know 😂.

19 Dec 2020 07:24:21
How much is an injury prone ross barklay worth? Great player if you can get him fit but if he's injured like he was at chelsea, i wouldn't buy him as he will want big wages and a big fee. Keep him fit and you have a truly special player there!

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Dec 2020 12:14:27
Can't afford sick note passengers. You're spot on. On his day he is world class but his fitness record isn't great.

20 Dec 2020 14:10:02
Yes but his history of niggling injuries and now another one can be a bargaining chip when negotiating a permanent transfer fee.

06 Dec 2020 15:04:37
So here the papers go again pick on jack day it was ross barkleys birthday he had the weekend off so he traveled to london mayfair to get drunk with his mate paper reports he was dancing and talking two girls big deal the world need to move on tier 1 tier 2 tier 3 rubbish if your gona live your life as a prisoner then the virus as won an you might aswel be dead. I have no problem with the boys having a party and a drink on the day off jack gets tested so does ross its negative so there no halm in him going to london 4 a party. The prime minsters staff have done it.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Dec 2020 13:20:51
Sadly it’s views and behaviours like this that lead to people dying if people can’t follow the rules then they should be locked up.

07 Dec 2020 19:53:49
He has had a test he was negative then he went to a place that doesn't really have it so you have more chance of getting it in teir 3 birmingham than london. He hasn't done anything wrong you just want to slate a young lad.

07 Dec 2020 20:41:59
Sorry rules are rules and he needs to follow them like anyone else I have lost friends and relations to this bloody virus and it’s idiots like you and others like you that lead to innocent people dying. If you can’t say anything sensible then I suggest you keep your thoughts to yourself.

08 Dec 2020 07:38:23
Some people are just cut from different cloth John you can't educate people who are so narrow minded and believe their own crap they write.

08 Dec 2020 12:15:51
You will all cheer him when his scores tho an even sing his name so think you lot talk rubbish! Its sad people are dieing but jacks negative so he isn't gona pass anything around is he and he went to a place that is even less likely to have it! I can here you sing his name now what hypocrites you are.

08 Dec 2020 14:13:43
Fact the cases and deaths are higher in London than Birmingham and is not the fact that he's done it this time he has done it 3 times now yet you in your own little world seem to think this is alright. Yes he travelled from a tier 2 to a tier 2 area but you can only mix with people in your own bubble again something he didn't do AGAIN. Have you ever stopped and thought about things before you write because you do make yourself look rather silly and idotic. As for a test how long do you think a test lasts for you might not have it 1 day but you might get it the next so your thoughts on this are totally dumbfounded AGAIN. Hypocrite? People know my thoughts on Jack Yes he is a good player but he is No Ronaldo ok.

08 Dec 2020 15:32:15
Daz, I replied to the above but I assume it wasn’t posted as I was far less composed and rationale than you, it’s people like Walkies that will ensure we don’t come out of this bloody nightmare as soon as we could otherwise have.

08 Dec 2020 16:42:37
You will be singing his name saturday tho won't you if he scores!

08 Dec 2020 19:55:16
No I won’t in fact in my opinion he shouldn’t play you can’t keep flouting the rules with impunity some things are more important than football and this is one of those.

08 Dec 2020 22:55:36
The powers that be don’t seem to agree that it’s more important than football or there wouldn’t be any football played and certainly not allowing thousands of supporters to attend games, and not even spreading them out around the stadiums I think that’s pretty ridiculous, look at the kop Sunday night, 1 rule for 1 and another for another seems ok by the government.

08 Dec 2020 23:26:38
It’s about balance and doing things in a controlled manner so I get the need to get football going again not only to keep clubs in business but to help keep football fans sane, however as I say it’s all to do with balance and risk, so I don’t for a minute think anyone on the Kop on Sunday had travelled over 100 miles each way to get there and from the reports I don’t think Jack was observing social distancing guidelines at the bash he was attending either so I don’t think you can say hand on heart it’s one rule for one and one for another. The likes of Jack should be setting an example like Marcus Rashford not flouting rules like they don’t matter, like it or not high profile footballers are role models and are commensurately well paid for it so to fall from the pedestal once is understandable more than once is I’m afraid crass stupidity and if he behaves like an idiot he should be treated like one and made an example of.

08 Dec 2020 23:33:08
If grelish don't play villa get relegated with him we are crap his the only good player at the club.

09 Dec 2020 09:13:14
Total crap he is the best player at the club but we have several decent players Luiz, Watkins, McGinn, Barkley, Konsa, Mings to name but a few Jack cannot do what he likes simply because he is the best player at the club if he breaches the rules he should be disciplined like anyone else. In terms of getting relegated I don’t think so, there are certainly three worse clubs than us even if we were without Jack and to be quite frank if it was a choice between one less death because of co vid or us getting relegated then I’m sorry but I would take relegation after all let’s not forget this is only a game.

27 Nov 2020 14:23:22
With interest from MCFC, Liverpool, MUFC and Arsenal in Jack according to the media, do you think that our interest in Rashica should be stepped up?
His form so far this season has been pretty average by his standards.
Which alternatives are there out in the football world?
Dont think Messi would interested so who else might be willing to come to AV, of course if Jack goes?

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Nov 2020 15:28:06
If Jack does go then I hope he goes to City as we could ask for John Sones as part of any deal with the remainder of the money I think we should tie up Ross Barkley on a permanent deal, in terms of a left sided midfielder I wouldn’t touch Rashica with a ten foot pole I would be more inclined to try for Zaha from Palace I know he doesn’t fit the age profile but I think he would be a good fit in terms of running at the opposition creating both chances and a goal threat. I would also look at a left back maybe Rico Henry or Ryan Sessegnon ( I know he is on loan but a good offer may persuade Spurs to let him go ) Inspite of all that though I would prefer it if Jack were to stay.

28 Nov 2020 00:08:46
Zaha’s attitude in every game I’ve seen him over the last two years has absolutely stank. He just wants to fight everyone, acts as though any foul on him is an attempt on his life. Tried to drag Konsa to the floor last season and then when he couldn’t tried to fight him as if Konsa had done something?

Don’t ask me why because I haven’t a clue but I saw Zaha play for palace against Southampton years ago. The year Southampton got promoted, it was at Selhurst Park, Ricky Lambert scored.

And I’ve always remembered right infront of where we were sitting, someone played a pass to zaha, which was probably two foot infront of him, because it wasn’t to feet which is how he wanted it, he literally let it go out for a Southampton throw in, to make a point. From there I’ve always thought he was a bit of an idiot to put it nicely, but the last few years he’s took it to a new level.
