Just seen Watkins goal, great header . Good build up, cross from the left by Jack, finding Trez on the right, who puts a cracking ball in for Watkins . Brilliant play all round .

Agree Dave great finish keeper no chance he buried it he’s clinical in the 6 yard box he scores quiet a lot of those diving headers, first of many I hope great start for him💪 Credit to trez also for a great delivery, I know it’s only warm up games but great to b winning them, so many years we were getting beat by teams we should be beating, arsenal and Utd scalps is a good start.

Hello everyone. I'm new here. Dunno how to comment without directly replying, so aplogies! Been lurking for a few weeks and some great opinions in here (and a few shockers! ) . My current thoughts are:

1) I love Guilbert. Cash looks good at tackling, but I worry for his positioning and dribbling skills. I would pick Guilbert over Cash at LB, but I don't trust Cash as a right winger (which isn't why we was bought anyway) so it concerns me that Cash seems to have been brought in as a direct replacement for Guilbert; who I think is excellent and also young and has massive potential.

2) Watkins appears to have fantastic positioning and workrate. I just hope he can score goals when in these positions. Note: I'm at half-time in the Villa v Man Utd game so I haven't seen any of the 2nd half yet.

3.) 13 Sep 2020 11:59:13
Rb, not lb! And sorry I should have put this in banter.

You have to use the Rumours form for new subjects and the Ed’s decide where to put your posting.

Sorry Jhon Chancellor .

1.) 12 Sep 2020 15:32:29
That came through before my other post . The other post said we are signing the Finnish keeper, supposed to be having a medical. He’s from the same team as reported target, Jhon Chancellor .

2.) 12 Sep 2020 16:05:02
Sorry crossed wires with my son, it’s Martinez 🤪🤪🤪🤪.

3.) 12 Sep 2020 16:33:37
Sorry it is Martinez, crossed wires with my son, my fault completely misheard him . We had been talking about that keeper and Chancellor and mixed the two up .



12 Sep 2020 15:17:18
The Finnish keeper signing, having a medical. From same side as reported interest Jhon Session .

Is this a new keeper?
Are we not getting the Argentinian Martinez after all?



09 Sep 2020 19:37:09
German press reporting, Rachica changed his mind . Villa reported to have made a £22m bid . If that's correct, it's another up your Walkies, Villa got no money HaHa

I think someone has put some fuel on the fire Dave.
Realising the options are getting less.

2.) 09 Sep 2020 21:01:25
As good as Raschica probably is, he can do one. Probably only wants to come now that no one has come in for him. Would see us only as a stepping stone and be off the first whiff of interest from a top 6 club. The likes of Cash and Watkins can't hide their delight at signing for the Villa, that's the sort of players you want at the club. Furthermore those saying we missed a trick with Frazer, yes we did, the one where he downs tools rather than help his club and teammates in their hour of need. We've had far too many of that ilk over the last few years, time to build a proper team spirit and ethic.

3.) 09 Sep 2020 21:35:25
Well said Moose, I totally agree with you.

4.) 09 Sep 2020 21:37:09
Call me sentimental but I’d of liked to see lolley coming in but he’s more right sided I think, just another grafter with what seems like a very good attitude.

5.) 09 Sep 2020 22:06:09
I’d like Lolley too. and his understanding with Cash could make us really strong down that right hand side.

Re: Rashica. I disagree. I think he could be an unbelievable signing. Can’t blame him for (allegedly) wanting a champions league move if one had come up; King has said the same preferring to go to Utd. If Leipzig are definitively out of the race, and we can sell him on the ambition and vision for the club. he’s the sort of player that would really signal our intent. A message to other players that we mean business, and could take us to another level.

There’s a lot of noise about Benrahma again too. Rashica - Watkins - Benrahma, with Wesley to come back (hopefully stronger and better adjusted to the league) . that’s a hell of a forward line.

6.) 09 Sep 2020 22:10:53
I don’t think you are far wrong, Dave. Despite the seeming refreshed interest, Rashica appears to be resisting the move. I can imagine his agent is looking for a deal, but maybe not the player. I would rather stick to players keen to play for the club.

The other winger still being bounced around in the press is Harry Wilson, who is being quoted at being available for only slightly less money.

None of the Norwich boys seem to get a mention.

7.) 09 Sep 2020 22:29:47
Lolly and all his family Villa barmy, now he would jump at it . Also he knows how Cash plays, Lolly on the right, Watkins coming in from the left, mouthwatering.

8.) 09 Sep 2020 23:01:44
Wow I thought it was just me that liked lolley, you love to see villa boys wearing the jersey they give that bit more you know their heart is in it, not pushed on rashida he don’t look interested I’d prefer someone with less skill and more desire, he reminds me of gazhi looks a proper sulky git.

9.) 10 Sep 2020 06:50:51
If they have the right attitude Whack, Lolley could be a good call. Just don't need another Lescott, Richards, Collymore and end of career Agbonlahor, supporters of the club but with a couldn't give a s##t attitude.

{Ed001's Note - more of a problem might be the fact that he suffers from shin splints apparently. He is likely to miss a lot of games due to it, if it even can be cured.}

10.) 10 Sep 2020 08:53:32
Cheers for the info Ed, mind you Forrest Gump had splints and it didn't seem to do him any harm 😁😂😂.

{Ed001's Note - welcome mate, having had shin splints myself I know it is bloody painful. An ex of mine was with Chelsea women until she got shin splints, she ended up retiring at 23 because of the pain. It does depend on what the cause is though, as it can just be as simple as the wrong fit on the shoes, but that is unlikely for a footballer as the shoes are normally engineered specially for them after their gait has been watched.}

11.) 10 Sep 2020 19:57:47
Lolley was really backed to join us a couple of years ago, but we decided to pursue others. None of those specialist wingers have really convinced.

I am sure Lolley would go down a treat with fans during the summer. 😎.

One in the bag, Matty Cash good addition.
Onwards&Upwards Villaforever.

1.) 02 Sep 2020 15:59:27
A good signing this Dave, could it be he is being lined up for a midfield spot, interesting.

2.) 02 Sep 2020 18:44:01
I don’t think so Dave, I do agree he could be a good addition in midfield! Unfortunately smith doesn’t like players playing out of there normal positions.

3.) 02 Sep 2020 19:16:03
81, I have no doubt that Matty Cash will play in a midfield role for us at some point.
Temporary or not, I would of thought that is why he has been recruited.
He played Kortney Hause at left back.

4.) 03 Sep 2020 11:49:55
I would want to keep Guilbert and move on Elmo. The Egyptian is in the final year of his deal, so why jeopardise forward planning by selling off the Frenchman, only to seek another right back next summer as cover for Cash.

As Dave rightly suggests, Cash could very well play further forward at different stages.

First game 3 points . We knew it would be hard against them, but we made it even harder . Why against 10 player, do we slow the game down? Got to admit Jack, was the biggest culprit,
Martinez, Cash and Watkins all had good debuts, Watkins looked just what we need certainly mobile enough . Biggest disappointment was Maginn, he couldn't pass water tonight.
Mings and Konsa must have impressed Southgate, as a pairing tonight. Mings didn't miss anything in the air and Konsa even with a twinge, still looked impressive.
We looked ring-rusty, but as fast as these games will come, we will have to improve.

I hope we got more than a bag of chips, off the Noses for Hogan . Iv never been able to work out, how they pull off some of deals they get. When we where after Etheridge, we was quoted silly money . I don't know if people see them as a charity case, or they have the best negotiating team in the world . At least Hogan off the wage bill .
Onwards&Upwards Villaforever.

1.) 17 Sep 2020 08:16:30
That’s because Etheridge has just had the season of his life in the prem Dave, last year he couldn’t even keep his place in the championship, hence the drop in price tag. When you consider all the facts its pretty simple. Hogan only had one option, plus he was shocking post lockdown, that’s why they wouldn’t have had to pay as much as they would have pre lock down, they’ve still paid north of 3million.



15 Sep 2020 22:54:22
Super goal by Jack, another 5 years of that, is what we need . Watkins showed us just how good his movement and reading of the game is . Ramsey certainly didn't look out of place and Marvellous had a great game .
Luckily Mings didn't have a lot to do, because he can't keep strolling around, with no urgency. That was the main thing tonight, we where to slow moving the ball . Against better opposition, we will have to liven it up, our best play is passing it quickly.
Overall it gave fringe player, a good work out . Best part of the night for me, was seeing Davis, finally get a goal . I honestly believe, if fit and perhaps loaned out, he will be well worth keeping .

Nice to see someone recognising Nakamba’s performance. I thought he did really well. He lacks the quality of Luiz, and his passing is limited. but he covered a lot of ground and he’s easily the midfielder that is strongest in the tackle.

Grealish was just a class above tonight. Fit, strong, outstanding work rate. and his quality on the ball is sensational at times. I don’t like the term ‘pre-assist’. but his for Watkins’ goal was sublime.

Frustrating game at times but a really good workout overall I thought.

2.) 16 Sep 2020 13:58:52
Ant, several people have commented on Nakamba`s performance last night.
He was excellent second half.



15 Sep 2020 09:57:50
What's happened to Louie Barry, haven't seen him in any of the squads lately.
Onwards&Upwards Villaforever.

1.) 15 Sep 2020 10:26:01
Got a feeling him and Jacob Ramsey may be involved this evening 👍.

2.) 15 Sep 2020 11:20:10
I hope he is at least in the squad, Moose. Jacob Ramsey, Kaine Kesler, Mungo Bridge and Louie Barry all missing for the U-23s yesterday. But Barry didn’t feature against Sunderland, so not sure what’s going on!

3.) 15 Sep 2020 11:37:15
Think Ramsey may start, the rest hopefully on the bench, get them on if we're cruising.

4.) 15 Sep 2020 11:48:32
Scary feeling Barry hasn’t been good enough for 23’s so has dropped to 18’s.

5.) 15 Sep 2020 14:51:54
Didn’t play for them either Chris, in the game vs Leicester. It’s the lack of any comment or mention at all out of the club. when they know fans are excited about him. what surprises me.



13 Sep 2020 11:43:05
Did anybody actually pay to see the game?
Reports say we played really well, in the second half . Another couple of signings and I reckon we can give it a good go . If we could get top 10, we can then push on . Very exciting season to come . Once again nice to see a lot of new posters on here, and at the moment no negativity .

1.) 13 Sep 2020 15:20:16
Yes I watched in full, although Villa's website screwed up as always. Anyway, we looked really good. Cash is rapid but a little clumsy at times. Good tackler but concerned about whether he is solid enough in defence in general. I'd rather Guilbert at rb. Luiz was class again and Watkins gets around the pitch. Complete opposite of Wesley which is great imo. I think we have really good momentum going into the new season. I won't read too much into friendlies but this felt different.

Ed002 you don’t know who Kingy is? Kingy pops up about this time every season and gives us all his top tips . i'm not saying he’s ever right, but is good for entertainment value .

Should be a good move for him, he reminds me a lot of Andreas Weimenn . Busy player lots of energy and the game time at Burton, will do him good . I wouldn’t think the physical side of their game will faze him, because his time as sub, he certainly put hisself about .

Don’t think Palace can do anything, until Zaha is moved on . Saw an interview with Woy sorry Roy, earlier and he seemed frustrated. Personally I wouldn’t mind Benrahma, the link with Watkins speaks for itself.

What happened to the Jhon Chancellor talk, now he looked good .6foot 6, a pass rate of %86 for a centre half that’s good stats, also plenty of experience .

Keinan is well worth persevering with, even when Tammy was scoring, Keinan always looked good . Certainly stronger and brilliant at holding the ball up . I hope it’s true and we keep him . He needs to keep hisself fit and find regular games on loan . With regular football and getting scoring, I really think he could be a big bonus for us .
