I see another one of our youngsters is being head hunted by man City and sum of Europe's top clubs want him, we must be doing something right at youth level because a lot clubs want our youngsters, it makes you think why can't they get into our 1st team squad it's a joke there's nothing better seeing a youngster break into our team or squad plus it could save us millions, what is the point in having youth teams academys if we're not going to use them we might aswell scrap them it's a joke youth is the way forward.

1.) 06 Mar 2020 16:03:41
Yeah, its been in circulation for a week now 4eva.
I think come the seasons end, there will be a lot of our youngsters having their contracts looked at and renewed.
I hope so anyway.

2.) 07 Mar 2020 00:29:23
4eva You are talking about 16 year olds .

3.) 07 Mar 2020 07:25:52
Age is a number doesn't matter how old or young it's if your good enough d82.

4.) 08 Mar 2020 20:06:25
How many of our youngsters over the last 10-15 years have gone on to play at the top level for anybody?

Clarke and Cahill are the only ones and both played in our first team.
The rest are all stuck in the championship or below (Robinson got the closest when Sheff Utd bought him but obviously didn't make the grade for them).

The youngsters who have been picked off by Arsenal, City and Liverpool previously are never heard of again so clearly not that great they'd make the step up.
The coaches obviously feel there is just too much missing from their individual games (look at Green, we all thought he could be great but just hasn't really developed) .

Maybe they also take into account our fans who will turn on the immediately when they have a bad game because we just don't have the personnel to carry them for a game or 2.

At the end of the day, if you're good enough, you're old enough only works if you are the first bit. What we have in the squad isn't great but any coach would make the move if a kid was genuinely better than the current options.

5.) 08 Mar 2020 21:53:37
Just realised I missed Albrighton out. That's a grand total of 3, all from before our fall from grace, Jack is the only one since then to make the grade.
Top youth sides take high levels of investment to produce 1 or 2 players capable of the step up. Chelsea and City's U23's cost more than some Championship teams.

6.) 09 Mar 2020 10:36:08
Admittedly Stevens came to Villa when he was 22 but he’s an example of a young player that wasn’t given adequate opportunities.

{Ed001's Note - he is certainly proving to be a big miss with Sheff Utd. He has been outstanding since signing for them. Good, technical player too, surprisingly good on the ball.}

7.) 09 Mar 2020 11:39:02
It would appear that the Villa owners intend investing heavily in the Academy which imho is the way forward. We can’t keep buying players, who are often well over priced and more often than not don’t come up to expectations. It’s simply unsustainable to continue like that.
Correct me if I’m wrong but I think that any investment in youth academy affairs is not considered in ffp accountability. If that is the case it’ would be a very smart move to go down that route.

{Ed002's Note - You are correct, the FFP accounts exclude academy and infrastructure costs plus other items which typically amount to much less of a cost.}

8.) 09 Mar 2020 15:41:29
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.

9.) 09 Mar 2020 18:20:57
As pointed out Stevens wasn't an Academy player.
During his time he had Warnock, Bertrand and Cissokho ahead of him who were better options.

When he got a run he didn't really take it and it took him 3 years in the lower leagues to build up to the player he is.
Some players just don't fit some clubs also. He has a lot less pressure on him at Sheff Utd. Lowton was ok for us but he's thriving at Burnley.
Lee Hendrie was the other way, consistent for us but couldn't get a sniff elsewhere.

10.) 09 Mar 2020 18:19:01
I’m optimistic that this policy will pay dividends MD, it may take a few years to kick in, hope I’m still alive to see us reap the rewards.



22 Feb 2020 06:38:46
Big game today biggest game of season in my view, would like to see 2 strikers play and Connor as well.

1.) 22 Feb 2020 13:16:37
Yep, massive game today Vila4Eva, my heart says us to win 2-1,my head says after looking at the stats we lose 3-1,I just hope deano has them all fired up and we don't do the usual and get tired top badly in the last 15 minutes, hopefully Baston will come out like a man possessed!

2.) 09 Mar 2020 09:26:58
You also forgot Edna Stevens, who is now Sheffield United’s regular left back and part of a team doing considerably better than us.



18 Feb 2020 08:37:58
Var is the worst thing in football. it's awfull and it's ruining our beautiful game.

1.) 21 Feb 2020 16:29:41
VAR is not the problem it’s the way it he
Being intrepputed in the Premier League all final
Decisions should be down to the Referee execpt offside which is basically your off or not and no u cannot rewrite it midway through a season that’s just ridiculous.

2.) 21 Feb 2020 16:32:19
Would u prefer if if the two referee is Mike up and u can hear the conversation bewteen the officials and he then explains his dissison to the crowd.



14 Feb 2020 22:28:07
Hi ed just herd man city's ffp punishment what does this mean for villa do you anything mate, now iam worried now.

{Ed002's Note - It is unrelated to aston Villa - an old issue based on stolen evident by whistleblower pinto and open to appeal. Aston Villa's problem is related to not living in their means (whay the earn) and the proposal to sell the stadium and rent it back.}

Well there goes jcks chances of eng call up he's our captain and is an idiot what is he thinking, while most of us our inside, footballers think there in a world of there own I still love the game but it's not what it used to be in my view football was amazing bck in early 2000s and 90s were class aswell better players then more entertaining aswell, plus players wasn't bothered about social media then aswell. I'd strip jck of captain and give it to mgginn.

1.) 30 Mar 2020 17:37:17
Agree 4eva.

2.) 30 Mar 2020 21:00:18
With all the sacrifices everyone is making it just shows deep down what kind of person Grelish is, this isn't the first time he has put two fingers up with his behavior . I think this is that serious Aston Villa via Purslow should make a public statement and condemn this in the strongest terms how unacceptable this behaviour is from an Aston Villa employee and the punishment to be imposed. Obviously the time of the accident and the state of him, he had obviously been heavily drinking, I am ashamed he his associated with our club.

3.) 30 Mar 2020 22:13:26
That's their attitude to everything in life, normal rules do not apply within the privileged little bubble they live in accentuated by the sycophants they surround themselves with. I've never understood hero worship, respect for their abilities yes, but never put on a pedestal just being rich and famous does not exclude them from the rules and guidelines we all should follow, now more than ever.

4.) 31 Mar 2020 07:47:18
I wouldn’t tar all players with the same brush, I’m sure there are those who do behave responsibly. Jack Grealish though clearly doesn’t fall into that category. He has not just let the club down, he has let everybody down.
I’m not averse to players going out and enjoying themselves, they’re human beings like the rest of us but you just cannot condone the kind of reckless behavior that Grealish has demonstrated, maybe it is time for him to move on.

5.) 31 Mar 2020 09:03:47
I agree with that sentiment Mark and I'm not taring them with the same brush, some behave like the professionals they are, James Milner springs to mind but these people are role models to thousands if not millions of people and should behave accordingly, now more than ever. Yes they're human but are paid handsomely for what can be a short lived career. Its just the hypocrisy between words and actions that galls me.

6.) 31 Mar 2020 10:43:03
It galls me too Moose. There are couples out there with kids, no money, or worse still, stuck in small apartments, but they’re following the restrictions set out to the letter because they realize how vital it is, and they want to do what’s right. You’re right the likes of Grealish should be setting the example, I just hope people don’t start changing the good habits they’ve adopted, with the attitude, if he thinks he can do what he likes, why can’t we.
McCormack is equally irresponsible too, if he invited Grealish, knowing full well how easily influenced he is and also knowing the trouble it could potentially cause.

7.) 31 Mar 2020 12:45:44
If it was McGateface (no proof yet, just in case of a libel court appearance lol) he's robbed a living off the Villa for years but got more money than the average working man (or woman) will earn in a lifetime and then basically sticking 2 fingers up at the people who helped provide said lifestyle just shows the mindset of idiots like them at this time of national crisis.

8.) 31 Mar 2020 13:44:46
Sorry lads for not participating in this debate, I would get really vocal if I did, and most of my views would get no further than the Eds.
I have very little time for these backsides, so I will more than likely agree with all you guys are saying.

9.) 31 Mar 2020 14:07:29
Dave I could imagine a post with all the asterix blotting out the swear words would be just as entertaining as our anagram quizzes 😁 and yes Markdavfrance would probably get them all pmsl sorry Mark but you do seem pretty s##t hot on them 👍.

10.) 31 Mar 2020 15:46:28
😁 Have you got those managers Moose?
Come on mate or I’m going to start the slow handclap 👏.

11.) 31 Mar 2020 16:24:31
Just having a brain fart with 2 mate I'm sure they'll jump out at me when I'm not looking lol plus only worked on them from this morning actually managed to keep myself busy yesterday 😱x.

12.) 31 Mar 2020 16:39:48
Got my boxers waiting in the wings mate, so let me know when you’re ready to rumble, same applies to everybody else who enjoy stretching the old brain cells 🥊😊.

13.) 31 Mar 2020 16:48:42
Yahtzee! Just got the last 2 bloody obvious when you have the answer 😂😂👍.

14.) 31 Mar 2020 16:54:34
Bravo slow hand clap is now the Icelandic one 👍.

15.) 31 Mar 2020 17:22:27
That'll do for me mate lol.



19 Mar 2020 16:44:55
Can't believe the season hasn't been scrapped premier league big wigs are greedy and deluded if they think any team is going to play any time soon the this is bigger than football it effects the whole wide, what if this doesn't go away until September, December they still going to hope and just suspend dates again just void this season as its highly unlikely we're going to play again this year.



13 Mar 2020 12:31:17
Surelt Smith has to be fired now that there's no games till april.

1.) 13 Mar 2020 13:12:19
There was only one game till April anyway.



11 Mar 2020 19:44:22
If Terry gets the job it's a joke what has he done with our defence nothing, let's just face it we are going down we have had chances to change manager and blew and now with 10 games to go owners are worried now.



09 Mar 2020 23:50:23
If we stay up it will be embarrassing, I will feel sorry for westham because let's be honest we have 1 good player and that's it.

1.) 10 Mar 2020 06:29:56
Who’s that 4eva, I didn’t see one good player in a Villa shirt. Dean Smith said something like they can beat anybody when they play well, which pub teams were he talking about then?

2.) 10 Mar 2020 09:11:03

3.) 10 Mar 2020 11:53:27
Was he playing mate, can’t say I noticed.
The only player that came out of last nights game with any credit was Samatta. He looked like the only one giving it 100%.
Seriously I think Jack is either carrying an injury or he just thinks it’s all a lost cause, just doesn’t look like he’s got the appetite for it anymore.
Let’s hope it doesn’t affect his value!

H85 are you a villa, villa haven't played well in 24 yrs 🤔🤔🤔and are a overrated club and won't win ote in the nxt 48 yrs can you see into the future. Villa are a massive club 5 most successful club in English history stats don't lie big fan base good stadium quality training ground, just been run poorly since doug, and also ffp has hindered villa spending power with new owners, we just need the right manager and coaches then we will be flying again it's just been a dull 10 years we will bck one day.

If some how season ends early and we don't go down, we are the luckiest team ever but il take it and we will have to learn from it and employ a top manager, my brothers a doctor at Leicester Royal infirmary and I was talking to him about virus he said it could take, may to June b4 it gets sorted. At end of the day with things like this football and all sports are irrelevant, it everybody's health and wellbeing that matters.
