Callum Chambers signs. Proof again that the paper talk is 90% nonsense.


1.) 27 Jan 2022 20:09:02
Most of our transfers are pretty quiet, they come out of nowhere, not bad cover to have, maybe even push mings for the shirt, CDM next and we are sorted.

2.) 27 Jan 2022 20:19:48
Good luck Calum.

Another youngster Villa are reported to be chasing, this time its Aaron Hickley from Hearts. Villa really seem to be trying to fast track the development of the U23's inline with Purslow's comments last year.
Fingers crossed we get a few established pro's through the door in time for pre season too!

*Hickey - apolgies for the typo.



30 Jul 2020 19:31:32
Afternoon all, just a quick heads up that I just heard from a friend close to Exeter City that Villa are close to signing Ben Chrisene. very highly thought of apparently although can't say I've ever seen him in action myself.

Villa confirm RDM as manager with Clarke as no.2!


1.) 02 Jun 2016 13:49:16
at last. things will start to move now.

2.) 02 Jun 2016 13:51:46
Great quote on the BBC:

"Clarke will take hands-on responsibility for Villa's group of underachieving players".

That'll be all of them then .

3.) 02 Jun 2016 13:57:02
Buzzing Di Matteo tactically very good from his record and Clark old school won't stand the things we saw this season could be a great balance, onwards and upwards!

4.) 02 Jun 2016 13:57:40
Where you seen this?

5.) 02 Jun 2016 14:05:27
BBC Website.

Dream Team
What a coup
Ask the baggies if they would have em over Pullis
I think so.

7.) 02 Jun 2016 15:04:08
I must admit i had and still do have reservations about Di Matteo, but with Clarke there too i'm a lot more confident going into the season.
Between them they have a bit of charisma and a very good tactical awareness which should do us well. plus a bit of 'good cop, bad cop' in the dressing room. even if that does sound a bit kinky. i'd much rather kinky than Randy though.

8.) 02 Jun 2016 15:58:14
this will be signed off tomoz. it's not yet been signed but there is no problems and they will do.

9.) 02 Jun 2016 14:47:25
Holy shmoly, i'm actually very excited by rdm and clarke as his number two, this is as shrewd a move at villa i've seen in many a year, i just hope that flackie, mendax, villadaz and the others get on board and stop being so negative, all those posts doubting our great leader, see, i told you guys not to jump to conclusions!

10.) 02 Jun 2016 18:03:18
Kingvilla, you rascal, you were right all along! i just don't understand how all the others ever doubted you! they got to name that stand after ya now surely?

11.) 02 Jun 2016 18:15:38
Do I sense a twang of sarcasm?!
I've not once been negative at our new owner, or the idea of rdm!

Quite the opposite!

12.) 02 Jun 2016 18:26:08
Hahahahhahahhahahahhahaha classof82 pure class comment I nearly wet maself.

13.) 02 Jun 2016 18:43:17
I wanted moyes from the moment garde was sacked and was disappointed when he pulled out of the running but di matteo with clarke as his assistant has got me excited about next season. UTV.

14.) 02 Jun 2016 18:49:43
Hopefully tomorrows statement announcing rdm as manager will include an update on the takeover!

15.) 02 Jun 2016 18:53:22
Looking at the comments people have made on the BBC Sport site following the announcement, general reaction from all quarters seems very positive. There are the usual pathetic slights from jealous blue-arses, but I read one brilliant suggestion as to what to do with Flabby next season. Put him out on loan to BCFC - that would teach him :)

16.) 02 Jun 2016 20:28:25
Sarcasm, moi? now then flackie, i like you never ever had a doubt, but my best mate dr. xia asked me to join this site and report to him the strength of the fans' belief; it was my unfortunate task to play the negative side and see what happens (the pantomime villian ), i was happy to report back to my old mucka tony, the fans had passion and verve, all in all its turned out well and me, i'm a bleedin hero me mate, but listen guys i can't hang around, i'm off to the hospital for an operation, for some peculiar reason my nose has grown about 4 foot long, i can't think why!



19 May 2016 14:44:55
Several qoutes now coming direct from the new Villa owner being prepared to spend up to £50m in the first season. Goes on to say he aims to get Villa into the top 6 within 5 years. which is very optimistic!
I'm pretty sure most new owners have great ambition for their respective clubs but at least its something positive (and confirmed) to focus on eh!
He also confirms that its not a one-horse race for the managerial position. reckon that's why Jose hasn't gone to Utd yet ;)


1.) 19 May 2016 15:27:03
Yeah worry is brendan Rogers is being thrown around a fair bit now, hopefully this takeover will help us keep hold of some players like amavi, and ayew, tho he's had secret talks with west ham anf crystal palace which I'm sure is tapping up.

2.) 19 May 2016 15:53:05
Ive also heard a rumour he is looking at buying into China's main TVs channel star TV, the possibilities are endless if this guy is the real deal.

3.) 19 May 2016 18:41:37
DBS1983 - i have to say mate if we can get out of the championship then spend in the premier there is no reason why we can't finish top half of the premiership in a few years never mind 5! If Leicester can win the dam thing we can have a go too with a good manager and teamwork! Birmingham are you listen to the song we are singing.

4.) 19 May 2016 21:44:28
Hi Devlins - Great to hear some positivity on here and i'm certainly feeling it too. just trying not to get carried away though as it's going to be tough enough getting out of the Championship let alone pushing top 6 in the Prem. One step at a time I think. For now let's just hope we get rid of the overpaid under performers and start to rebuild.
Hopefully if this happens quickly we can get VP rocking with some long overdue wins and take momentum into the Prem where we'll see how ambitious this guy really is.

5.) 20 May 2016 00:28:53
well said Devlins, a man with vision.

On the off chance people aren't aware, Villa youngster Finn Azaz has been nominated for League Two Young Player of the year.I only tend to watch a few games a month in that league but he's been excellent in every one i've seen and I have friends who watch a lot more (supporting various teams) who all say he's easily one of the best players in the league.another tip of the cap to the Villa youth set up.fingers crossed he keeps developing!




24 Jan 2021 01:40:01
Quick shout out to Tyreik Wright for his assist on his debut for Walsall, another promising young Lion.




18 Jan 2021 18:50:31
According to a French website with an alledged exclusive, the Sanson deal has progressed in the last few hours with talks said to be at a'very advanced stage' and could be concluded within days.
No idea how much credit to give this report though so who knows.


{Ed002's Note - The lady from Marseille is back in England having flown in to Gloucestershire airport.}

1.) 18 Jan 2021 20:03:00
Ed I'm not being funny or suggesting your wrong in anyway shape or form I'm just curious where you and the other Ed's get your info from I mean how did you get to find out they flew to Gloucester? I do bow my hat too you.

{Ed002's Note - She has a home in Broadway hence flying in there.}

2.) 18 Jan 2021 20:21:13
Cheers for the update Ed, sounds like something could be happening then.
Didn't see the posts below on this so apologies all.

3.) 18 Jan 2021 20:52:05
Is that favourable for us Ed?

{Ed002's Note - She has a home here and has some discussions in Milan so will be disappearing for day at some point this week.}



04 Aug 2016 13:30:06
Lescott has had another Twitter 'incident' in which he followed Leeds Utd and then quick;y un-followed. Could mean nothing but would be nice if it meant he's on his way!


1.) 04 Aug 2016 15:55:04
actually think he would be a good fit for them! Here's hoping.



22 Jul 2016 17:31:52
Morrison has just started following Villa on twitter. whether that means he's signing or not remains to be seen but would seem a strange thing to do if he wasn't.

Bit of a gamble really, but hopefully a bit of research has been done and he's grown up a bit and is ready prove himself.


1.) 22 Jul 2016 18:21:09
If he has grown up, we should welcome him with open arms if he's as good as he potentially could be

Seriously hope not!

He certainly hasn't set the world on fire yet, but my point is writing him off completely after only a handful of games seems a bit short sighted.

02 Nov 2021 16:19:35
So we're writing off two of our biggest signings after having played barely 10 games between them?
Maybe I'm too patient at times, but this is so far off the other end of the spectrum it's basically a reach around

I think if El Ghazi goes it means one of two things - Either the coaching staff have seen enough of Bidace in pre season to think he'll step up and be a better option. or we're loaning out Bidace and getting a new player in. probably Cantwell by the sounds of it.
Agree with the previous point that if Trez wasn't injured, he'd be the one to make way based on ability.

I was banging on about Romeu a few months back. one of the best defensive midfielders in the league in my opinion. strong, aggressive and technically sound. might be getting on a bit but if we can get him for a decent price he'd definitely be worth it. Straight into our first 11 and will help us bridge the gap to the teams above us.

Yep, agreed with most on here as has been discussed earlier in the summer - unless one or more of the top 6 has a meltdown we're competing for 7th-10th and hopefully a good cup run. Still think there will be two signings to improve our chances and then we should be hoping for closer to 7th and pushing whoever struggles in the top 6, but who knows at this stage.

I managed to watch the game and to be fair to McGinn, it was an accident.he just went in hard and caught the kids standing foot slightly. For context though, the same kid flew into a challenge a bit earlier and typical Bamford was winding everyone up, including leaving a late one on Carlos who very quickly got up and squared up to him which was nice to see. A very fiesty game and a good work out but Villa were clearly the better team, if a little rusty in the final third which you'd expect. Again, not worth getting too excited but early indications are that both Carlos and Kamara are going to improve our first 11. I get the impression that Carlos is going to be one of those players that fans will love but due to his very proactive style of defending, will get criticised for being rash at times.personally I prefer defenders to be aggressive so can forgive the odd howler.but who knows, still plenty of time to see how he plays.

Hi Menace, hope you're well. I'll answer your question with another question first of all.why would Kamara or Carlos join us over other teams? I'd suggest the answer is that Gérard and our management team did a good job on convincing them that our project was an exciting one, we are a progressive club and that we offered a highly competitive salary. Is there any reason to think that approach wouldn't work with other players?

Exactly Whack, most Villa fans aren't silly enough to draw too many conclusions from an early summer friendly against Walsall.
Totally agree Soucek is exactly the kind of player we need.if latest links are true it seem we'll have competition at left back and then look to sign two more, a midfielder and forward.which I suspect will be where most of the summer budget will be loaded on real quality to go straight into the starting 11, if available.
The question then becomes, what is a realistic expectation for the season? Personally I think City, Liverpool and Spurs will make up the top 3, can see Chelsea struggling a little but still competing with Arsenal for fourth, maybe with Utd under Ten Hag. Then you probably have Wolves, Leicester, West Ham and us competing at the next level. Maybe even Newcastle too. So realistically we're probably looking at 6th - 10th.unless one or two of the top 6 really have a mare and open it up. The question is will fans stick with the team and Gérard if we're 8th/9th by the time the world cup comes round.

Agreed Loti, it's going to be a long summer for people who buy into the paper talk and then get disappointed when we don't sign them. If there's one thing we've learnt, it's that Villa like to do their deals quietly and effectively with minimal fuss. We do things properly and to your point, will only push for the right deals, not get drawn into protracted bidding wars with agents and do things publicly. Long may it continue. Let's judge the effort in the market when the season starts. We've already done some pretty good business nice and early.
