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.

2.) 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.

3.) 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.

4.) 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.

5.) 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.



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.




13 Jan 2020 16:16:41
Here's one for you Villadave, if he agrees, and Monaco agree to let him go, we have a deal for Slimani in place in principle on loan, don't go cartwheeling too much, knowing our luck he'll agree to join permanently!


1.) 13 Jan 2020 16:42:54
I would rather not to be honest 82, I think we need Two strikers, and both on permanent deals.
There is better out there, so we need to beef up our efforts and show the fans and football world we mean business.
If we are still in the same position come January 30th yes, but as it stands not for me mate.

2.) 13 Jan 2020 18:55:25
Slimanis a good player better than anything what we have by a mile.

3.) 13 Jan 2020 19:03:07
Yeah sure he is, until he had played a couple of games for us, then you would be one of the first on here wanting to wring his bloody neck.
Think about it mate.

4.) 13 Jan 2020 20:00:50
They reckon llorente was quality before went to spurs .



13 Jan 2020 08:35:57
So there's a few bloggers saying that even if we pull the pin on deano that it's already too late to try and tempt the likes of pulis of big Sam, because by the time their installed it'll be too late for them to wheel and deal in the market, so if that's the case, we're looking at probable relegation, all our young players bought by Dean of with 'potential 'leaving for pastures new, and the ones who stay won't like the championship 2 game a week scenario, so that means another couple of years rebuilding, it's like deja-vu! IF deano stays and we get relegated then for me, we need a manager like Chris Wilder, no nonsense, either you put a shift in or jog on-and yes, I'd consider big Sam, but hey, we may confound the odds and stay up!


1.) 13 Jan 2020 10:34:52
I seriously don't consider any of them except Pochettino.

2.) 13 Jan 2020 13:09:21
Ur dreaming as if poch would come to villa no chance mate.



12 Jan 2020 13:36:11
Islam Slimani-owned by the that mob who peddle crisps and now we've apparently asked about his availability, to deano and those in CHARGE-NNNNNNOOOOOOO!


1.) 12 Jan 2020 14:14:28
No No No, definitely No.

chrisAVFC-nice to see you posting again, and actually I wouldn't have moaned, in our situation if the 'established' players aren't cutting it then why not give a young hungry player his chance, at least then the team would play with heart, passion and an element of the opposition not being sure what the young players are prepared to try, but that's just academic now, so crack on Chris, good to have you keeping me honest fella!




23 Jun 2020 11:25:27
So, Bruce has made some comments in the press, can't disagree with him, and while he's talking about looking upwards our manager is letting his mask slip when asked about relegation, so even though I want us to stuff the bar codes, I wish Bruce all the best and it goes to show, maybe we should have stuck by him, because for someone who's 'washed up'he's done a top draw job at Newcastle under an owner like Ashley, so maybe some on here who called him clueless and old-school might rethink compared to our present encumbered.


1.) 23 Jun 2020 18:27:34
It was Bruce's time to go when he did, results were poor and football was stale, unfortunately whilst the change hasn't worked you can't turn the clock back and it's easy to be wise after the event. There is no guarantee the next change will work, however we can't risk another season with a coach who has clearly shown he is out of his depth, nice guy and villa through and through, however nice guy never has been the criteria to cut it at the top level.



26 Apr 2020 06:56:14
That would be a big fat yes to Sean dyche if true, failing that and worst case scenario, relegation, love warlock as manager or if not, give Lee Johnson the job and have Warnock as director of football/ manager on standby, a win win for me, don't think I will be using the word 'win'in the same sentence as deano any time in the future, be bold right now., let deano go.


1.) 26 Apr 2020 11:32:53
Using the word win in relation to Lee Johnson is a stretch. I wouldn't want him anywhere near our club after his disgraceful comments about us over the last 2 years, utter disrespect.

He's had backing at Bristol and bought a lot of experience (ironically mostly ex Villa) and hasn't even managed to get them into the play-offs. We beat them to the punch last year having given them a 10-15 point head start.

2.) 26 Apr 2020 12:25:14
Everybody is of course entitled to their opinion, but you know, the same people who want to see Dyche appointed,
will be the same people who will want him out 12 months down the line. The level of fickleness within the Villa fan base is nothing short of staggering.

3.) 26 Apr 2020 12:32:38
Maybe Deano can start gargling hot pebbles to get that gruffness? And we'd have to build up the dugout so Johnson can see the pitch, be like having wee Jimmy Krankie on the touchline 🤔 speaking of which did nobody find it weird that he got his wife to dress as a schoolboy and sit on his lap? Discuss, I'll be in the corner watching it all unfold 😂😂.

4.) 26 Apr 2020 12:38:19
On a side note Sean Dyche's voice is so gruff even his echo is scared of answering back!

5.) 26 Apr 2020 12:52:10
I seem to remember, after gaining promotion, that Burnley went down the next season didn’t they? They kept faith in Dyche however and he brought them back up the following season. Keeping that FAITH and PATIENCE has paid off.

6.) 26 Apr 2020 12:56:47
You mentioning echoes answering back Moose, reminds me of the Grinch who incidentally is better looking than Sean Dyche. 😂😂😂.

7.) 26 Apr 2020 13:03:30
"Why my dear I just noticed you were improperly packaged " for any grinch aficionado's out there 😁.

Pmsl Mark quality 😂😂😂.

10.) 26 Apr 2020 14:36:47
With these rumours about the Burnley manager could we get "concrete" Ron Vlaar in as his assistant then we could have the Dutch boy and the Dyche? 🤔😁.

11.) 26 Apr 2020 14:52:40
Perhaps “ tulips from Amsterdam”, for the signature song 🤔.



08 Apr 2020 15:19:07
So, whispers abound that the season could be cancelled, not good if a purist but to mere mortals like me, it's a massive get out of jail card, and so, may I be the first to raise the issue of thanking deano and start the search for a new manager or "coach", if you just look at how the squad has 'progressed 'then the simple answer is we've stalled and gone backwards, much as I want him to have made the grade;he hasn't and is too stubborn to be willing to admit this and change, for those who disagree fair enough, but the results don't lie, as for who could come in, do you go established or new proactive without the experience, I'd go experience but we've got plenty of time to witter on and on about it-but this all DEPENDS obviously on if the season gets cancelled-ahh the sweet anticipation!


1.) 08 Apr 2020 16:02:54
So says the Udinese director Marino, however the premier league are saying that it has no substance 82, so most probably a load of baloney.

2.) 08 Apr 2020 16:06:56
He thinks he is the special one Moose, so the rules can’t possibly apply to him.

3.) 08 Apr 2020 17:12:32
Sorry 82, all said before mate, topped with speculation and lazy journalism.



07 Apr 2020 05:13:03
Nice to see the lock down and spending more time with our loved ones has helped chill everyone out on here! LOL!


1.) 07 Apr 2020 14:59:54
Yep, all chilled out 82, got to do as we are told mate.
Hope you and all posters on here are well.

Easy- when you have a manager who ignores advice and goes 'zonal 'no matter what, the results literally DO speak for themselves.

Yep, massive game today Vila4Eva, my heart says us to win 2-1,my head says after looking at the stats we lose 3-1,I just hope deano has them all fired up and we don't do the usual and get tired top badly in the last 15 minutes, hopefully Baston will come out like a man possessed!

Villadave- see how quickly we forget star quality when it's at our fingertips! -personally, I'd stick trezeguet up front, eye for a goal, a bit of trickery and with his pace, I reckon defenders would get caught out resulting in 1 or 2 penalties coming our way, worth a gamble in our predicament I think- there again, who knows what will happen before the window closes!

Davis has a physical presence for sure, but maybe I'm wrong, but for me he's predictable, I heard someone on the radio say something I think is right, Davis will never be a great player for us (injuries aside) because he's the type of player who would benefit from an older striker to guide him and teach him the dark arts, we haven't got that;so he'll never reach his true potential unless that changes or he moves somewhere else-just an opinion.

The twelth man-leave it out Dave, compared to the eleven before him, he's odds on to be the player of the season, what a shower -and just to confirm that I'm not all there, if deano had any balls he'd drop jack and tell the rest of them to man up and get the job done-then you'd see who really plays for the shirt and the fans.

Apologies Ed001 my mistake, but I still think we dodged a bullet not signing him, I don't think he can join any new club till the summertime now and I wouldn't be surprised if deano still wants to sign him! -but alls well that ends well, now let's see if deano can use sammatta to the best of his ability, you know, what with deano's nouse and shrewd tactical prowess, how can he go wrong.
By the way;yes Villadave I was way wide of the mark, I did that just to show EVEN I can balls it up (very regularly! ) lol.


{Ed001's Note - that's ok mate, the news is just sensationalising it, rather than reporting it.}
