If both Villa and Liverpool are looking at Damsgaard, sadly I think the likely sequence of events may be Damsgaard to Liverpool and Curtis Jones to us 😢.


1.) 30 Aug 2021 13:46:06
I have seen reports that Villa are not in for Curtis Jones - it is purely a case of SUN speak.

Hourihane seems close a loan move to Sheff. Utd, whilst Guilbert could be on his way to Fulham or a few options in France. This might make room for one more newie?

2.) 30 Aug 2021 14:37:32
Van De Beek it is then since he's not wanted at United.

3.) 30 Aug 2021 21:36:09
Villa will not sign anyone else, as I said before Its possible that the owners want to see Smith prove himself before investing further. If it's a positive first half to the season they will look at making funds available for January window 22.

Rumour has it that El Ghazi and Wesley have been told they are free to find new clubs. A bit harsh on El Ghazi I feel, but I know others will disagree 🇪🇬.


1.) 10 Aug 2021 16:45:35
I agree Menace as back up I think he is more than decent and now Jack has gone he deserves his chance to compete with the new signings. Apparently Mourinho rates him and in fairness he isn’t a bad judge of a player.

2.) 10 Aug 2021 17:34:05
If true, it may mean the signing of another wide man is imminent. 15- 20 million for AEG would soften the blow of forking out for a 40 million player for thé left flank for instance.

3.) 10 Aug 2021 18:55:02
I like El Ghazi, he's got all the necessary skillset to be a top player but, like most wide men, consistency is sometimes missing. Like the fact he's manned up and ditched the gloves plus he's a goal threat. That being said, if we get someone in who's an upgrade it makes sense why his stock is relatively high. And he's great at penalties. Useful as a squad option and I think he'll start Saturday. I guess, along with losing you know who, it shows there's no sentiment in football anymore. Personally I'd be sad to see him go as I feel he's still got more to offer.

4.) 10 Aug 2021 20:03:03
If it is true, El Ghazi is unlucky in that Trez is injured, if he wasn’t you’d have to bet he’d be the one going.

5.) 11 Aug 2021 10:32:07
I think el gazi should go never really rated him to much 1 good game In 5/ 10 is not a player we need. I don’t think we need another winger personally with buendia young Bailey traore and trez when he comes back from injury I think we are well stocked I would like to see another midfielder come into play hopefully JWP.

6.) 11 Aug 2021 12:29:17
I am not a big AEG fan tbh. He has genuine skills, including a good shot, but he just seems to drift out of games. For me, I think he needs to show better consistency if he is to feature in a side aiming to be a top six outfit.

I know stats can be used out of context, but he lays on very little for others, which you would have expected from a winger. He is certainly not dire, but if everyone is fit, will he feature?

7.) 11 Aug 2021 17:52:50
I'm with you AJ, for me if we want to go to the next level we need to improve on El Ghazi and Trez.

8.) 12 Aug 2021 23:22:59
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.



03 Aug 2021 12:34:40
According to the ever-reliable Daily Mail online, we've made a fresh bid for JWP.




31 Jul 2021 12:19:51
So it's all gone quiet on the Kane front which seems odd as he has a much better goals/ assists record than Jack and any of City's current squad. If they had to prioritise one signing, I would have thought it would be Kane 🤔.


{Ed002's Note - Kane will drag on and Spurs will demand a huge amount for him.}

1.) 31 Jul 2021 14:18:41
Exactly what we should have done. Spurs will show us how to do it, even when their in a worse position with Kane making it abundantly clear he wants to leave.

2.) 31 Jul 2021 15:17:52
Everyone is acting like it’s a done deal, keep the faith guys it’s not over till the clubs announce it.

3.) 31 Jul 2021 17:03:52
I had the same mindset as you till recently Whack, with Percy writings it’s almost done, it’s inevitable.

4.) 31 Jul 2021 18:34:55
Sounds like it but let's not underestimate Jacks love for Villa.



02 Oct 2020 13:47:44
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.

Whatever the result between Cardiff and Swansea tomorrow, Small Heath are guaranteed to drop another place which will leave them just 3 places and 3 points above the drop. Shame ??.


1.) 16 Oct 2021 17:44:09
Maybe worry about ourselves not clubs in a different league eh?



12 Oct 2021 09:46:14
I see Beaky is now saying Jack is a more confident player now he's moved to Citeh. More like More confident of being in the England squad since Beaky told him if he didn't move to Citeh he wouldn't be picked ?.


1.) 12 Oct 2021 13:33:19
I haven't seen him have as much of an effect for city than he did with us I have never seen him pass back so much.



08 Oct 2021 00:41:58
Apparently Bruce is fearful of his job prospects under the new ownership as, apparently they are likely to automatically change the manager. Nope - they will change the manager if he is clueless and his track record indicates that he is likely to achieve cluck-all. Now be fearful.


1.) 08 Oct 2021 21:37:01
Bit harsh on Bruce, don't forget he was going to stay with Villa when we were about to go into administration. He's a decent manager and seems a decent bloke.

2.) 09 Oct 2021 01:57:53
Sorry Bucky - my mistake - we were only the 9th out of 11 teams Brucie has managed, including almost 8 years managing Small Heath Alliance. It’s uncanny just how many of those are now fighting for Champions League places ??. I agree - very decent bloke. Singularly unsuccessful as a manager though - just my two- penneth.

3.) 09 Oct 2021 09:58:27
As a man, one of my top three blokes to have managed us in recent history, as a manager, probably pushed me closest to handing my season ticket back!

His commitment and attitude toward the club, whilst going through the toughest time of his life personally should never be overlooked, his role during the summer when everything was swept from underneath us should never be understated, from several articles and podcasts since it seems as though Bruce was the only one holding things together at one point, taking on responsibilities way above that of a manager!

But on the football side of things, it was awful, that side that lost to Fulham in the play off final, might be one of the best championship sides not to get promoted. The tactics all season were awful and got even worse in the final!

That being said, if they do replace Bruce will they be looking for a homophobic manager who supports public floggings and executions for people’s sexuality, and will work under Sharia Law?

4.) 09 Oct 2021 10:06:31
I think Bruce is an interesting manager and I would put him in the same category as Mick McCarthy, nice blokes and good at managing up to a certain level but we don’t know whether they could really cut it at a top side where they would have real money to spend because they haven’t really been given the chance. I do think though that Bruce has a decent record when it comes to transfers he has bought the likes of Saint Maximin, Maguire, Robertson, Dugarry, Forsell, Bent, and McGinn all quality players and in some ways it is a shame he will never get the opportunity to show what he could have achieved with a big club where he had real money to spend.

5.) 09 Oct 2021 18:25:52
Steve Bruce is a gentleman, when he is at his Solihull home he has been in a number of the local pubs and i have witnessed him willingly talking to fans. Unfortunately he is not a quality manager, hence his number of sackings and just remember how much money he has made being bang average at his job. Multi millionaire for being crap, not a bad job, he us smiling all the way to the bank, absolutely no sympathy for the man when he is sacked again shortly with another wheelbarrow full of dosh.



02 Oct 2021 17:04:33
Oh dear. Mr Deeney and his tribe of crap bluenoses stuffed by Forest. So with only one win in their last 5 games, they are now heading for their rightful place in the table.


1.) 03 Oct 2021 11:42:57
Sinking like a stone, funny the noses at my club, didn’t want to talk football, on Friday HaHa.



15 Sep 2021 21:55:20
All hail Mitrovic. That should put our bluenose brethren back in their box. Consolation goal for Deeney - story of his footballing life ??.

He looks a decent unit, though it seems we have yet to table an offer and Atalanta are also interested. Lens are looking for 1 million - Markdavfrance - any insight?

Yesterday United attempted a total of 28 shots at Martinez's goal without scoring. That's the most they have attempted in a home Premier League game without scoring since October 2016. What a legend ??.
