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 🤔.


1.) 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.

2.) 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.

3.) 02 Oct 2020 18:13:58
I have seen a video on-line today where Smith refutes this link.

4.) 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.

5.) 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.

6.) 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.

7.) 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.



26 Sep 2020 11:33:38
El Ghazi Off to Olympiakos say some reports. Shame imo, but he'll be behind Trezeguet in the pecking order and, at 25, will want regular first-team games.


1.) 26 Sep 2020 19:28:08
Nottingham Forest have also been mentioned.

I am not convinced he is consistent enough for the Premier League, but we really need a replacement before letting him go.

Smith has suggested possibly one more in and two out. I would have thought one of the leavers would be a goalie, but El Ghazi could be the other.

At the end of the day, the selection of departures is goinfg to be driven by the buyer interest. That could well mean we might well not move on our preferred first choices. One or two we might rather to go now could well end up running the final year of their contracts down.

2.) 26 Sep 2020 21:11:19
I will always thank him for the goal he got to get us up villa legend just for that!

3.) 26 Sep 2020 21:12:49
Given space and time el ghazi has a cutting edge. Unfortunately you don't get that in the prem.

4.) 27 Sep 2020 12:34:30
I'm sure given enough time and space, even I can put a few decent balls in the box even at my age. Mind you ref might blow for half time whilst I'm steadying myself 😂😂😂.

5.) 27 Sep 2020 13:31:41
Agree walkies. Our fans do forget too easily sometimes. We wouldn't be where we are if not for him.
Obviously have to replace once you have better quality but don't be a douche about it.

El ghazi should be applauded out to a new challenge. Trez can be a headless chicken sometimes but his goals kept us up so he should get the same when the time comes.



23 Sep 2020 10:34:21
Samatta off on loan to Fenerbahce by the sounds of it. Risky imo given that Wesley won't be fit until January. Perhaps this heralds the arrival of another striker? 🤞.


1.) 23 Sep 2020 16:47:49
Not according to his father.



16 Sep 2020 12:50:31
Martinez deal done. Next please .




05 Jun 2020 14:19:51
Congrats to the Women's team on getting promoted to the WSL and coming up from the Championship just a year after the boys. Just a shame the men's team can't swap positions with Liverpool as the ladies are about to do!

Have we had the 'Danny lngs is refusing to sign a new contract with the Saints' debate yet? Any takers?


1.) 18 Jul 2021 13:11:12
With only a year left on his contract it might be possible to aquire Ings for a reasonable fee MD. The problem is with the system we play it would be difficult to fit both Ollie and Ings into the side, and neither of them would be content sitting on the bench. It’s been said that we could play Ollie out wide but we already have good options on both flanks and there may even be another brought in before the deadline. From Ings’s perspective I would imagine at this stage of his career he would want a stab at European competition football and for a reduced price due to his contract situation, I would imagine they’ll be a few takers.

2.) 18 Jul 2021 14:04:30
I agree mdf and I think even at a reduced fee you would still be looking at circa £25 to 30 million minimum and I think Ings is 29 and therefore would have little resale value and so wouldn’t fit with the clubs current recruitment strategy. I have long been a supporter of Mitrovic at Fulham I can’t see him staying in the Championship for another season he would push Watkins but wouldn’t be the no 1 striker and gives you an option off the bench if Plan A doesn’t work which is something we have lacked up to now.

3.) 18 Jul 2021 14:35:22
I did like him a few years back but he’s had 2 stabs at the premier league and didn’t do much to be honest.

4.) 18 Jul 2021 17:44:57
Has ESR signed a new deal at arsenal? Busy week at work I must of missed it if he did, thanks in advance.

5.) 18 Jul 2021 20:42:26
That’s a very considered set of posts. Thanks chaps. I guess, on balance, that’s a ‘no’ then.

6.) 18 Jul 2021 21:08:58
With a better side with better players I think he’d score plenty, the issue is if we want a striker to challenge Watkins without being the first choice 9 then if it isn’t someone like Mitrovic then the question is who? because if we are being honest we aren’t going to play 2 up top and I don’t think we are going to splash huge sums for someone to spend most of the season on the bench.

7.) 18 Jul 2021 23:31:16
That’s a fair point John, he is good with his head and we do need a John Carew type player for when we need to change things up, Davis could be that player in 2 seasons time but he needs a season or 2 playing every week before he is valuable asset to us imo, in the mean time mitrovic could be useful if he was going pretty cheap.

8.) 20 Jul 2021 09:11:20
Ings is not the solution for Villa and vice versa, I think he will end up staying at Southampton. I think Abraham is a big shout if Smith is thinking about playing two strikers or shifting Olly out wide, other than that I think he will try Westley then look again in January 22 if it doesn't work. In the meantime let's hope we add one or two quality signings in other positions to improve us further and show Jack the next level of ambition.



20 Jan 2021 19:54:15
With my rational head on, unless we can go away to Man City and win comfortably, we're still a work in progress- which we are. Unfair result but we were beaten by the Ref.




20 Jan 2021 19:40:27
Mings again thinks he's Beckenbauer. Entirely his fault spoiling a superb performance.


1.) 20 Jan 2021 19:51:39
Hes the David James of cb mate.

2.) 20 Jan 2021 19:54:16
What did you want him to do break his leg?

3.) 20 Jan 2021 20:00:42
Nah - he’s not Souness.

4.) 20 Jan 2021 20:04:13
Head the ball would of been good.



08 Jan 2021 21:11:16
So why are the kids not going in with some season-ending tackles on the Scousers main men? It would do the first team a few favours without any of them being punished.


{Ed047's Note - words fail me you absolute melt! 🤦‍♂️

1.) 08 Jan 2021 21:20:08
Jesus Christ🙈.

2.) 08 Jan 2021 21:32:28
Are you for real, pathetic remark.

3.) 08 Jan 2021 21:40:07
Because we ain’t blue noses we are 1 of the cleanest teams in the league.

4.) 08 Jan 2021 22:05:24
Oh my God, have you had a bad day or something, crikey Menace, 😟👎.

you should be ashamed of yourself don't you dare bring that sort of behaviour to our club!



08 Jan 2021 20:48:01
So how come the supposedly maturer first team have all got CV whereas the young lads you'd expect to be party animals don't and can play tonight?


1.) 08 Jan 2021 21:20:44
Your having a bit of nightmare tonight aren’t you. Surely you don’t need it explaining to you.

2.) 08 Jan 2021 21:51:14
Pointless chris, ain`t worth the effort mate.

Agree BK and you have to ask yourself, if Citeh have Kevin De Bruyne and Phil Foden, why do they need another number ten who could struggle for game time against the other two.

I’d say that might have some credibility. Suddenly Kevin De Bruyne is Jacks biggest fan. Could be he’s looking to woo him over to City.

Did I miss something, or didn't McGinn score a cracking goal after 48 seconds in the last game, only to have it disallowed by the Stockley Park Muppet Show?

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.

Mind you, Barkley was on the bench for Chelski the night before he was announced as a Villa player 😀.

Various media reports today suggest Levy has agreed to let Kane go to Citeh for £160m with wages of £400k a week. Do you think Pep would sign Jack as well? I assume the deal would not be dissimilar, but I still wrangle with the fact that he would be behind De Bruyne and Foden for the #10 shirt and wouldn't have the captaincy - presume he'd be behind both Fernandinho, De Bruyne and Kane on that one.

Looks like we’ve managed to field our strongest 11 despite the C.V. problems. Great to see Barkley back.
