Now here's a thought.

According to most sources, Jack is currently on 100k per week.
If he gave up half of that for 6 months, that would be about £1.25m (still leaving him with £3.75m for the year) which, by my reckoning would fund about 40 additional healthcare staff for a full year. Now that's what I would call a useful penance for his recent dick-headedness.

That's a good call Menace, it seems you can put a price on stupidity. Also there's an interesting read on Vital Villa titled 'the messiah or a very naughty boy" well worth a read.


2.) 01 Apr 2020 16:36:57
Read the article Moose. I agree with Juan Pablo Angels response to it. He is captain of our club and should lead by example not just on the pitch but off it as well. If he is incapable of doing that then he shouldn’t be captain of our great club.
Why should having wonderful god given ability give him a divine right to just do as he pleases. He is a very lucky person to be blessed with such ability, so is this the way to show his gratitude for that?


3.) 01 Apr 2020 18:09:41
I think therein lies the problem Mark, they may be grateful when they first start out but once they get that big break they're all "Bertie big b######s" and start to feel they're entitled to it. Even some clubs youngsters get more than we'll earn in a month or more ie Uniteds "Baby Bentley brigade " I appreciate that most live exemplary lives on and off the pitch but the captain of our club is its figurehead and good sensible, behaviour is a small price to pay for a very lucrative career.


4.) 01 Apr 2020 19:27:57
Great Idea, but Grealish`s wages are nowhere near £100,000
He is on about £35,000 a week MD.
Still worth doing what you suggest, only over a longer period.


5.) 02 Apr 2020 19:17:45
Dave I bet he’s not on 35k a week.


6.) 02 Apr 2020 19:56:00
You may be right Tom, but according to the club wage structure, Tom Heaton is top earner on £42,000 mate.

Just announced - Drinkwater has joined on loan for the remainder of the season.

MenaceDortimer

 

 

02 Jan 2020 14:20:54
As it now looks possible that Wes could be out for the rest of the season (or at least most of it), does anyone know what 'Plan B' is in terms of strikers? It's certainly not Kodja and we need to be reinforcing the squad rather than just recruiting to replace the injured. I assume therefore that we now need at least 2 strikers in the window. Seems Andre Green is still not rated as he's now gone out from Preston to Charlton on loan.

MenaceDortimer

1.) 02 Jan 2020 18:04:52
If you listen or read Christian Purslow and Dean Smiths pre-season statement, it was always the plan to see how the season panned out and to reinforce come January if need be.
Nothing new there.


2.) 02 Jan 2020 21:45:48
I don't think any good getting sturridge injury room is full as it is . Need to be careful buying these young foreign players as we going got one shot . I think need to push for striker from chelsea . I honestly still stick by my informer that a brentford striker will be in villa shirt before end of jan .


 

 

16 Jul 2019 12:00:48
Lampard confirms that Ampadu is going out on loan. I assume that means he wants game-time, but is he experienced enough to do us any favours at the back?

MenaceDortimer

1.) 16 Jul 2019 21:38:47
We are now up to 5 centre backs so the only way I see him coming is for a DM spot. If we get Douglas or Marvelous then Ampadu carries on being a bench warmer. If we take Suso and Purslow for their word then I just can't see this happening.

You beat me to it mate I had one lined up for boxing, I’ll maybe save that for later if people are still interested.

OK fellow Villains, here's the next anagram extravaganza. All these have regularly played for the Villa first team, mostly from the 70's through to now. There is one real 'oldie' on here, but he's a legend so you should get it. This is a bit of a marathon as there are 30 on my list, so it will probably take you until Saturday by which time Moose should have revealed the answers to his quiz. Good luck - hopefully I haven't missed or added any erroneous letters 😊

The Norwegian FA says it was decided in the UEFA meeting that the Euros will now take place from 11 June to 11 July next year. Apparently the decision will be signed off by Uefa later today (Tuesday) .

MenaceDortimer

{Ed002's Note - It should not be a shock to anybody. The meeting will continue and they will also propose a new option to close out the Europa League and Champions League if possible this summer. Certainly from the semis on, one weekend in Istanbul and Gdansk - although there has to be a risk that is not viable.}


 

 

20 Feb 2020 15:14:27
On an entirely different matter, opportunity knocks this weekend as Southampton have confirmed that Boufal, Nathan Redmond and Kyle Walker-Peters are all not available. A must-win game methinks.

Still, at least Hogan scored this weekend?!? I'm currently working in China so only got the Bournemouth news late. Let me know which players you'd like me to give this virus to and I'll meet them in the car park ahead of the next game 😊😊.

MD it's probably better you get on the coach, ha hs.


2.) 02 Feb 2020 14:16:23
I have found a little positive though, when we do go down at least there are more matches in the season.


3.) 02 Feb 2020 14:53:24
To be fair mate I enjoyed the championship mate even when we didn't go up in them seasons atleast we won matches tom, and the championship is of high standard aswell yes I'm glad we are in the prem but championship for me is such a good from top too bottom, I wouldn't fancy our team right now to come strait bck up not a chance mate.


4.) 02 Feb 2020 15:26:48
Nope neither do I mate I hate to been doom and gloom but I think we are going down, like I say I don’t mind it, most of the players we have are championship level so would be interesting, something to look forward to a mid week game! Another thing I want to see flames and a little display before the games like they do at wolves, would make it worth while because the football isn’t enjoyable to watch! Pass side ways then backwards then side ways. We must have a rugby coach in our club who is telling the players they can’t pass forward! Think I have worked it out boys.


5.) 02 Feb 2020 17:06:33
As much as I dislike wolves you have too give them credit they had a plan and got a class manager in Europe who I think won years cup with Porto I could be wrong on that but they had a plan unlike us mate it's alright throwing money away like we have but you have to have the right manager spending it, it's up to our owners to make big decisions, when we came up they could paid deano off and got a big name too take us further in the summer but they missed a trick tom now we are in a right mess if some how we do stay up deano needs to go in the summer in we need sum one like dyche for me.


6.) 02 Feb 2020 17:10:31
We need a team of players that would put there bodies on the line and go threw brick walls not one villa player apart from jck would go threw walls for you mate.


7.) 02 Feb 2020 19:35:04
Completely agree with the above. I think the one thing we’ve lacked in the majority of games this season is desire and commitment to play for the shirt. The players looked scared yesterday, lost count of the amount of times we lost the ball in our own half.


8.) 02 Feb 2020 19:54:01
In order to succeed, the desire for success should be greater than the fear of failure.


9.) 02 Feb 2020 21:12:51
Wise words Mark, and very true.


10.) 02 Feb 2020 22:01:48
I just struggle to see where we are going to pick up points from, can anyone else help me?


11.) 03 Feb 2020 06:34:21
Nobody can predict that otherwise they'd be rich.
The joy of football is not knowing. Did anyone genuinely think we'd beat Leicester?
For all we know City and Liverpool could have 10 of their first team out ill or injured by the time we play them and get 2 unexpected wins there.
On the other side we could predict 3 points against Newcastle and deflections and pitch bobbles do us.


12.) 03 Feb 2020 11:07:28
For me the key to survival is getting McGinn back and firing as soon as possible. That could well happen by the end of March. Also we need to be going flat out in all remaining 7 home games, 110 percent effort, as the great Ron Saunders always used to demand. They need to put the kind of shifts in that they did against Leicester in all those 7 games. If we could achieve 15 points from those games we probably wouldn't need to win too many away from home. We will probably need more than our fair share of luck also, we definitely don't want any more injuries for example.
It's not over yet, guys, not by a long chalk, you only have to look at the table, it's as tight as hell down there.
Stay positive.


13.) 03 Feb 2020 15:15:13
Markdav I agree we need to up our game massively now.
But my concerns are the defence.
The joint worst defence in premiership 47 goals.
What is the chances of us suddenly getting watertight?
I don't see it myself.
This defence should have been sorted months ago but we still make the same basic errors and fron the same players most of time.
Terry is doing nothing for me with his work on the training pitches.
I'm hoping we can get the results to keep us up but my confidence has been shattered with our defensive errors.
All this talk of bringing in a goalscorer to get us out of mess but all the time we should have spent more time looking at defensive signing.
I'm a very worried villa fan now and the thought of returning to the championship and losing our best players in the process is not a happy feeling.


14.) 03 Feb 2020 16:51:55
To be honest Mainbob when they let Chester go to Stoke, I honestly that they had a replacement lined up, like Vida for example, and now Konza is injured. Anymore injuries to central defenders and we're going to be seriously struggling in that area now.
I agree, we have leaked far too many goals, but from what I've seen, it's not always the back that are to blame. I see passes, not necessary from defenders, going to the opposition in dangerous places, I see midfielders getting caught in possession in dangerous places, I see wingers not getting back when they should be etc. etc.
There are times I feel we need to defend better as a team and cut down the space we keep giving quality players to do what they're good at doing.
It's hard work doing all that but you're right, we leak goals far too easily.

Entirely correct Mark. That's exactly what esteemed Mr Purslow said at the Supporter Trust meeting a couple of weeks ago. Monies from HS2 have been invested in the new Academy infrastructure; the Academy has been totally restructured and Mark Harrison (described as a 'brilliant hire') is in the process of transforming the whole academy management structure. This all presumably comes under the umbrella of the club's 5-6 year plan to bring us back to where the owners and CP (and us fans) want us to be on a permanent basis.

I agree Scotty. I thought Targett had a good game and thank God we signed Reina. For the last 20 mins of the 1st half I thought we lost our way a bit - not so much no recognizable striker but no recognizable footballer on the pitch. However, everyone put in a shift in the second half and we got what we deserved. Just a pity Deeney didn't get crocked in the process.

Absolutely agree. The NHS is and always will be the jewel in the crown of British society. Unfortunately, President Chump has no idea what's coming his way with their disjointed, get-treated-only-if-you-can-afford-it healthcare system. They've got 82,000 cases tonight and Chump seems to think it will all be over by Easter. A bit like WW2 was going to be over in 6 months?
