I'm hearing a new contract has been signed and all will be revealed along with the new kit on the same day if its true and I have no reason to doubt this person then I'm sure all Villa fans will be very happy indeed.


1.) 05 Jul 2021 22:21:21
This contact reliable Daz? Would be amazing news!

2.) 06 Jul 2021 06:38:25
Very BK i don't normally post rumours as I don't believe in them.

3.) 06 Jul 2021 16:49:20
Fingers crossed Daz, I'd like to see this concluded either way - If Grealish wants to go we need to make this as painless and quick as possible, take the 100M and reinvest smartly. If he is staying, like your mate suggests then I'll be over the moon, that'll be a real statement of intent from Villa.

4.) 06 Jul 2021 18:39:00
Where has this 100m come from, I know of no concrete evidence that is the figure that would trigger his release.
It was 88m last week, all speculation in my book, time will tell.
The chances are it will never happen, if it does we will be some way off with our maths.

5.) 06 Jul 2021 20:42:51
For the record, I 99% think Jack will stay, but it’s going through my mind that as he’s a Villa fan and would want the best for the club and he decides it’s time to move on, that’s why we got Buendia in early? and going for ESM so aggressively as reported? Just thinking out loud 🤔


6.) 06 Jul 2021 21:14:03
Ally very true, but that doesn`t answer the question where the 100m came from.

7.) 07 Jul 2021 01:16:02
It was rumoured that city were going to bid 100 million for him, then that 1 source wrote an article about the 88 million deal already agreed, all pure speculation in my book.
if jack had let’s just say 2 years left on his contract, wanted to leave and we needed the money I’d say 100 million would be the ball park to buy him, but he has 4 years left, owners don’t need cash, he’s club captain of his boyhood club and the only desire he has talked about is winning trophies, in my opinion I think it’s going to take 140-150 million to get that deal done this year or even next year, I think city will bid but won’t go high enough for us to accept and I predict he will sign a new contract probably with a release clause of around 120-130 million, if you want him pay up and if you don’t want to pay then do 1, simples.

8.) 07 Jul 2021 05:23:12
Well said Whackie


9.) 07 Jul 2021 17:27:43
I agree with the sentiments in the above posts and that works well unless Jack decides he wants a move.



01 Jul 2021 19:46:23
With Jack being offered a new contract and a reported wage of 150k a week I think this could have repricutions on future transfers and wages for new players. I know a couple have been released to get some wages back but if we sign Tammy he would surely demand 75-80k a week also can we really afford this?


1.) 01 Jul 2021 20:00:03
It is a worry I must confess however, I I am sure the commercial arm of the club are looking to improve revenue streams season upon season, but it will become increasingly difficult if we can’t get closer in revenue terms to the big six. I remember reading a couple of months back that Tottenham’s income from just food and hospitality dwarfed Villa’s match day receipts for the whole season if we can’t narrow that gap signing and paying for top players will always be a problem.

{Ed002's Note - Someone is teasing you.}

2.) 01 Jul 2021 20:38:51
Don’t believe everything you read Villajohn.

3.) 01 Jul 2021 20:38:14
Ed - based on the last set of accounts Villa’s match day income was £11 million, Spurs was £95 million. Apparently next year they are anticipating hospitality will take £800,000 per home game 19 home games plus 3 Champions League games gives an estimated income of £17.6 million if those projections are right we are going to have real problems in competing with top clubs unless we address that financial imbalance.

{Ed002's Note - The last pre-pandemic results were for the 18/19 season when Aston Villa was in the Championship. You are not comparing like for like. Aston Villa have far less income than Spurs on match day due to the size of the stadium and ticket prices. They will earn more next season than Spurs do in sandwiches and lager.}

4.) 01 Jul 2021 21:30:56
The accounts I am quoting from are 2020 accounts our first season back in the premier league so I am comparing like with like.

5.) 02 Jul 2021 19:23:55
Tottenham will do that against most when it comes to match day income, much like Doug Ellis was ahead of the curve when he installed the large function rooms with bars, and as many boxes as possible etc at villa park, Levy has pioneered the next step at the new Spurs stadium, with the 100 meter bar and other attractions, all aimed at keeping both home and away fans at the ground long before and long after the match.

We were away there first game of our return to the prem, when things were ‘normal’, there set up is a different kettle of fish to everyone in the UK.



25 Jun 2021 17:29:56
Hi all hope your all well I've tried searching everywhere to see if there is a release clause in Jack's contract but can't find anything I know Ed02 is very clued up on things like this and perhaps they could shed some light on this? Personally I think Jack does have one and it would be in the region of 70-80 million mark and I'd say IMO that's a fair valuation.


{Ed002's Note - Release clauses and even termination clauses in England are very rare. If he is sold it will require negotiation.

1.) 25 Jun 2021 22:16:59
No release clause daz, and if he had 1 for 80 million then why would City allegedly be preparing a 100 million offer, you’ve answered your own question there lol.

2.) 25 Jun 2021 22:28:01
How come they are so popular abroad Ed? It seems like nearly every player in Spain has one, sometimes the youngsters over there are rumoured to have ridiculous ones before there even close to being stars.

{Ed002's Note - It varies Chi’s - in Spain and Portugal there is a legal requirement for “buy out” clauses - in much of German and Italy there are “termination clauses”. In France, the Netherlands and England it is less common.}

3.) 25 Jun 2021 22:33:06
Thanks Ed that's why I couldn't find it then. I do believe he will sign 1 more year then if we don't get a European spot he will leave. I also believe that Man C are more in the market for a striker rather than someone like Jack.

{Ed002's Note - I suspect it will continue as we have previously discussed - AV wont want to sell, if the player wants a way out then they will ask for around £100M and perhaps accept £89M.}

4.) 25 Jun 2021 22:38:23
Main word there Whack allegedly 👍👍.

5.) 26 Jun 2021 00:32:24
For sure daz, like last year he was going to United, rumour had it he had the Red Devil tattoo on his arse ready for the big move, then no bid from united😂😂.

6.) 26 Jun 2021 09:07:17
As I said previously this is a win win for us, if he goes we have circa £100 million to invest in the squad, if he stays we have one of the best players in the premier league in our squad. Happy days. 😁.

7.) 26 Jun 2021 15:07:53
John do you think 100m is enough to replace Grealish? Might sound silly but I think we all agree we can't replace him directly but do you think 3 x 40M players would be more valuable to Villa than Grealish? As mad as it sounds, I'm torn :-)

8.) 26 Jun 2021 16:23:37
So for me BK I genuinely think if you can strike the right deals I think it could benefit us, so I have said on a previous post if City want Jack, they have to include Jack Harrison as part of the deal we then have something like £80 million as an adjustment.

As an example you could use that cash to sign the likes of Abraham and Ward-Prowse and move McGinn further forward. I also think that the other benefit of something like I have outlined is that such an approach gives you options so you could play with 2 quality strikers up top.

I am not saying I want Jack to leave but if that happens I don’t think it’s the end of the world either.

9.) 26 Jun 2021 17:22:53
Thanks John, understand your perspective and agree Jack Harrison would probably match Grealishs output (goals and assists) but for me we still need to replace his creativity and his ability to carry the ball and take the ball in tight areas, his ability to do this takes so much pressure off us at times and allows us to reset defensively or alternatively attack at speed. A massively ambitious option would be Houssem Aouar at Lyon but we have zero chance of getting him and that's the real problem for me with losing Grealish, the players that would slot in seemlessly and help us replace him (in the aggregate) are most likely unobtainable!

10.) 26 Jun 2021 17:51:51
BK I don’t think you can get a like for like replacement for Jack not too many like him about in fact I can’t think of anyone at the moment to be honest, however even if there was one I think there aspirations would be higher than joining us at present sadly.



27 Apr 2021 07:55:32
Dean Smith years:
1st year promotion
2nd year stay in PL
3rd year mid table in PL
This man and his team have gave us our Villa back. Facts youngest team and one of the smallest squads in the PL. Best season in God knows how many years.3rd best defense in PL. Youth set up getting better and better. CV outbreak this season ruined momentum. All these and there are many more facts which I'm sure MOST are aware of have bode us well this season. Remeber the deadly Doug era sacking a manager for the sake of it well I'm afraid with these owners it's not going to happen we have our best manager in years and some have the audacity to question his judgement? Dean Smith along with his backroom staff for me are doing wonders so what if performances are not as good we are now in a position as a club to move to season 4 with hope and optimism with the right blend of youth and experience from this season we will move to the next level. Rwmeber the 5 year plan well we are 1 year ahead of ourselves. And just to quote the Spurs manage on Sunday" We are 5 years behind Man C" This is a Spurs side who have been in the PL for god knows how many years. Sacking ain't the answer we need to all be singing off the same hymn sheet and like someone said on here a bad apple ( Barkley) could be our downfall imagine what 500 bad apples would do. IN DEAN I TRUST.


1.) 27 Apr 2021 08:53:28
I’m absolutely with you Daz when assessing a manager it should be over an extended period of time not 3-4 months and as you say his track record over the 2 -3 years he has been in charge is good. I agree we are ahead of schedule based on the plan developed by NSWE when they took over, and given the money I am confident based on the signings he has made up to now that future investment will be good and that we will kick on again next season. We know changing managers regularly doesn’t work we have done that often enough, we have tried putting up and coming managers in charge (Paul Lambert) and that didn’t work, let’s hold our nerve and show some confidence in one of our own. God forbid we have someone like Bruce or Mourinho in charge.

2.) 27 Apr 2021 08:59:09
Thank you John.

3.) 27 Apr 2021 16:42:41
Daz, you are correct in what you say, and I have a great belief that we will continue to improve.
I want Deano to succeed as much as anyone, and I will support him if I think he is doing the right things.
However having said all that, If I think players are not performing, and our form is suffering, I will say so.
Would people rather I said all was great, when in truth our results are showing that is not the case.
In my opinion team selection is showing uncertainty, and a lack of confidence in our back up.

4.) 27 Apr 2021 17:02:34
Good posts Daz and John. I haven’t always agreed with some of Deano’s line ups, substitutions, reluctance to try some of the youngsters etc., but I wholeheartedly agree we should stick with him.
To be a top 6 side, we need to have a much stronger squad. When Deano’s got that, I have every confidence we will be.
With the current squad, I doubt there’s a manager out there who would have got us higher than a mid-table finish.

5.) 27 Apr 2021 17:14:00
But we have Jack tho, so surely top 2 is guaranteed? 🤔😁.

6.) 27 Apr 2021 18:21:51
In response to Dave I agree performances haven't been as good of late and yes team selection sometimes are questionable but this is why he is paid the money to do a job for us which I believe he has done so with great effort. People say why don't he play 2 up top and I believe the reason he hasn't is because all season we have had only 2 fit strikers imagine if 1 got injured that would leave us with 1 fit striker it don't take a rocket scientist to work that out mate. As for the youth playing Ramsey has come on this season and he has given some a taste of the 1st team set up. I think next season you will see a couple of our youth team getting their chance but as all managers know you can't play 2 or 3 as that would weaken the side so much. Take the Liverpool game for instance that youth team played well but faltered in the end against a side when let's face it have struggled this season. All in all I think its been a great season and here's to next season when Deano should be judged.

7.) 27 Apr 2021 18:22:24
Hahaha Moose love it.

8.) 27 Apr 2021 18:26:42
And to Mark i'm so glad we didn't get into Europe this season our squad is nowhere near good enough nor big enough to compete in 4 competitions. Hopefully next season we can push on that little but further and build further.

9.) 27 Apr 2021 18:51:36
Thank you Daz, in your first two lines, you have agreed with what I am saying.
Performances haven't been as good of late, and team selection is sometimes very questionable.
Ok so change things, mix things up a bit, try something new.
So why is it different for you to say exactly the same thing mate.

10.) 27 Apr 2021 19:25:07
Dave, please name a manager in the Premier League (or anywhere) who has majorly changed their system and selections based on a run of iffy form.
Managers have their ideas and they stick by them. We can disagree with them but other managers can't be better in that regard when they don't do it either.
Other managers may have a system which works better for certain teams, may have better training methods or get their ideas across better or the big one, just have better players who've played together for a longer period of time.

11.) 27 Apr 2021 19:33:14
I to would like to see some of the youngsters given a chance before the seasons end to gauge progression and I guess in some ways influence the transfer targets for next season. My worry is with the likes of Elmo, Engels, Taylor, Lansbury, Hourihane, Heaton, Nakamba, Trez, and El ghazi will be moved on, we will upgrade a number of those positions, that being the case the opportunities for our youngsters will be less than it is now, and I wonder whether the plan will be to loan a significant number of them out to give them experience of league football if not then as others have said we run a real risk of losing these talented kids particularly if they see no path to first team football with Villa.

12.) 27 Apr 2021 19:56:51
With all due respect Dave and please don't take this the wrong way there is saying it and there is repeating it over and over again. As RK has said different games different tactics players Deano has been a PL manager for 2 seasons he is growing along with the team.

13.) 27 Apr 2021 20:09:37
Rk I can give you four instances, that contrary to what you are saying would disprove your theory.
Derby twice under Clough, and Leeds twice under Revie, system and formation changed with great results.
Players involved, Davies, Hector and O`Hare for Derby. and Giles, Gray, Yorath and Lorimer for Leeds.
So guys I will let you have your space, what's that saying again, oh yeah
"you can`t teach an old dog new tricks".
Shame really.

14.) 27 Apr 2021 20:41:00
So 2 managers who are no longer with us? Very great managers but I was looking for something more in the now as you say he has to learn to change or be replaced by someone who will.
Klopp didn't change his tactics and Liverpool have suffered this season. People have questioned the high line and him not changing tact but is anybody questioning his managerial abilities or suggesting he is on borrowed time because of it?

15.) 27 Apr 2021 20:52:39
Yeah Klopp never changed his tactics, that again is my point, you have to change things.
And rk, I have never said Deano needs replacing.

16.) 27 Apr 2021 20:56:36
I wonder whether the reluctance to play a different system revolves around the protection the two defensive midfielders provide the back four, we are a lot tighter at the back than last season but that compromises our attacking capabilities, I know at first we produced some stunning results but as all premiership teams do other teams have sussed us out a little bit, that combined with Jack’s injury and Barkley to all intensive purposes going AWOL we have been left woefully short in the creativity department hence we have at times looked average at best. The more I think about it we need at least 1 quality defensive midfielder we could then play McGinn further up the pitch where, as he is for Scotland much more effective than he is for us currently I also think that would give us more options in terms of changing systems.

17.) 27 Apr 2021 21:52:48
Brilliant assessment Daz👍.

18.) 27 Apr 2021 22:03:16
Dave, I know you haven't said he needs replacing now but you also said he needs to change something or he would need to be.
If the players pick their form back up and we add, as expected, in the summer then would the system and other things still need to change? Smith has seen that the players can go on a good run with how it is. Ripping up the hymn sheet doesn't stop them passing to the advertising hoardings when they get a rush of blood or aren't focusing properly.
Klopp has players out injured and out of form. People suggest the high line isn't helping but a lot of people would also suggest they'd probably still ship goals regardless with the second rate defenders that are having to play.

19.) 28 Apr 2021 17:02:05
Rk, if there are new additions in the next window, then things will probably not need changing.
Hopefully any new players we get, will be better than what we have, and be more capable of carrying out their duties.
We have got most of the juice out of what we have, and at times have been found wanting, all I am asking, is realisation that is the case.
And I reiterate I have never asked for Deano`s sacking, I have said he needs the remainder of this season, and next season, fact mate.

As far as Liverpool are concerned I will leave that to my son-in-law, he is the one who is up to speed on their problems.

20.) 28 Apr 2021 18:32:15
I was listening to TalkSPORT this afternoon where they were getting into the Arsenal takeover and having a real go at Arteta and in essence asking for his head, what’s that got to do with us I hear you ask, well someone who apparently who follows the NFL and American sport in general said that by and large American owners are generally really reluctant to get rid of coaches/ managers rather they tend to get rid of the players that are not doing it for them. An interesting perspective I thought maybe Deano’s position isn’t as under threat as some journalists would have us believe.

21.) 28 Apr 2021 19:39:15
That`s worth a thought John.

22.) 28 Apr 2021 22:31:11
Wes Edens basketball team suggedt that also John, they took a young coach and focused on the money moneyball tactic with the players until it clicked. I imagine he's probably the more hands on of the owners with that experience and he's recently done an interview backing the stats based approach.

You are welcome John.

13.) 16 Sep 2020 11:03:16
Thanks Dave and John your King will pardon the rest especially badger boi but an apology would be nice.
Jack knew well before Saturday my sources told me he always wanted to stay he had told Villa that it was the negotiations over the new contract with Jacks agent that took the time.
And I was also told that not one single bid or offer came in for Jack.

14.) 16 Sep 2020 11:11:08
My sources were also correct about the Oli Watkins deal the only thing that took the time was the negotiations for the transfer fee and add-ons Villa began to panic as time was running out and Spurs had entered the negotiations hence why we paid much more than our valuation although Watkins had already agreed terms with us.
Another one from the king.

Super League teams beaten this season Liverpool Arsenal Spurs. Most points won since 2010. 2 young stars making their PL debut. Joint Top English Pl goals scored from Watkins. Joint most clean sheets in a Pl season. More Internationals playing than many a season.

Ian Dury and the Blockheads now your talking Mark😀😀.

5.) 20 May 2021 08:34:42
Has someone hit you with their rhythm stick Mark? 😁 last night was all about getting the balance right, plus good performances across the board. Nakamba may be limited in terms of football ability but he more than makes up for that in his tenacity and frees up the likes of McGinn to strut their stuff and play their natural game. Shout out to El Ghazi too, we know he's got the skills but last night he added that bit of fight to go along with that. Has he had some of what Targett has been drinking? So many good performances to list but a fantastic team effort. Great to see the youngsters finally get minutes and not appear fazed by the step up. Well done Deano for getting his in game management spot on and Mings, despite our misgivings over some performances, totally dominating probably the best striker in Europe, surely he senses an opportunity to start for England at the Euros with the injury to Slabhead. 👍.

6.) 20 May 2021 08:53:02
On a lighter note it was pointed out by one of my friends that Dele Alli bore a striking resemblance to Jack Sparrow so I'm sure you'll remember this day as the day you almost beat the Villa 😁.

7.) 20 May 2021 12:44:07
He definitely didn’t put in a ‘black pearl’ of a performance.



13 May 2021 16:23:40
I can confirm Jack is in the match day squad.




13 May 2021 15:54:07
With it being Mental Health Awareness Week I thought I'd share a few things with you. Mental Health can affect different people in different ways some people get emotional some people get angry or some simply don't say anything. For me not saying nothing is the worst kind keeping things bottled up not knowing where to turn to or who to talk to can have significant consequences on your life aswell as others. I suffer with both emotional and the not saying anything side of mental health and believe me its hard. I recently tried to take my own life (Thank you Window Cleaner) for not talking to someone I couldn't talk to my wife I didn't want to burden her nor my friends and family I thought it was the right thing to do how silly was I? But now I've learned to talk to be open and Frank about things yes I still get emotional but not saying nothing was the worst. My wife asks me 2 or 3 times a day am I alright? a family member will ring me to ask if I'm alright? friends will text me and ask if I'm alright? I'm now in a better place by people asking me if I'm alright the point I'm trying to make here is if you know someone who suffers from MH ring them text them visit them ask them if they are OK not once but 2 or 3 times a day let them know that they are not alone their burden is your burden. Or if its you who suffers from MH don't be afraid you are not alone you can always speak to me or family and friends and say Hey
I might need a little help don't be afraid speak up there's nothing to be ashamed about help is always there. Don't suffer in silence like I did and become a statistic Please. If anyone needs to talk I'm quite happy to give out my email address to you. don't SUFFER IN SILENCE.


{Ed001's Note - very well said daz and if you need to talk you can always message me anytime mate.}

1.) 13 May 2021 17:01:44
Daz, well done for opening up re this issue mate, it can’t have been easy. One thing I think all posters on this site could do is be respectful of other peoples views they are honestly held and you don’t know the impact you might have by totally rubbishing what someone has to say, I accept totally this is a debating forum where differing views are sought but there are ways and means. Daz I have a family member who suffers with mental health issues and so I know it’s a daily struggle just keep fighting mate God bless.

2.) 13 May 2021 17:16:23

Bravo Daz👏👏
The most honest and insightful piece that I have ever read as regards Mental Health struggles
So glad that you are emerging from it and a big thanks to all of those who continue to support you.

So its coming to the end of a very good season for us reaching the goals set out by Deano and the owners finishing in the top 12 so here's my grades for players and Deano
OWNERS A +++++++++++++
Player of Seaon mmm hard one i'm going Targett after proving doubters wrong from previous seasons ( Luiz doubters take note)
Best performance Liverpool 7-2
Worst performance Fulham home even though we won we was lucky.
Progress has been made without doubt and next year I'm looking for more A AND B awards. Keep the faith and we are in the best hands any club could wish for.

Agree with most Daz, I’d give cash a B+ and Davies a C just ok the basis when given the oppertunity he hasn’t always pulled up trees but always made a difference.

I have been a little strict on some Chris I admit👍👍.

The abuse Douglas Luiz is getting off our fans on twitter and Instagram is nothing short of embarrassing. The lad made a mistake he's 23 and is still learning his trade he is human like you and I. Who can say that they have never made a mistake in their lives?


1.) 09 May 2021 22:16:02
Like Cash against City, his mistake was really poor, just stupid if anything, so everyone’s going to be extremely frustrated. But I agree with you Daz, the whole slagging you’re own players publicly to ridiculous lengths is just counter productive, and another part of modern football that just stinks.

The same "fans" who were singing his praises at the end of last season and will be asking "what idiot included a buy back clause" should be move to City in the summer. Honestly, we have such a fickle fan base, I'm as reactive as the next person but cannot understand the logic behind abusing a player of YOUR club on social media, the mind boggles.

As Mike Tyson said, social media has got people way to comfortable in disrespecting people and not getting punched in the face for it.

The same people slagging Dougie to those ridiculous levels would be begging him for a picture if they saw him in the street.

Very true Ed we did but Watkins was a proven goal scorer in the Championship and for me was worth a punt but ESR for me is going to be more of a gamble I feel. As I said I've not seen him play so I can really say much on the guy and as Chris has said we are awash with attacking players at the moment unless Grealish goes.


{Ed077's Note - ESR did impress for Huddersfield (?) in the Championship and has done well for Arsenal too. Whether an AM is of real need for AV or not might depend on the summer business.

A reported £32 million bid going in for ESR for me personally think this is a lot of money for a unproven PL player surely that could be spent on a more experienced player in his position? I've not seen him play so to be honest so I can't really comment on his ability.


{Ed077's Note - ESR has some PL experience. He did play around 2 dozens games in the PL for Arsenal last season.

Didn't you pay a similar fee for someone with actual no PL experience last season, for Watkins? And it didn't turn out that bad now, has it?

Thanks Ed that's why I couldn't find it then. I do believe he will sign 1 more year then if we don't get a European spot he will leave. I also believe that Man C are more in the market for a striker rather than someone like Jack.


{Ed002's Note - I suspect it will continue as we have previously discussed - AV wont want to sell, if the player wants a way out then they will ask for around £100M and perhaps accept £89M.}

Have to disagree here Chris I thought Phillips was our best player in the tournament Leeds have got one serious player on their hands I think Southgate is just a yes man no balls at all bottled it big time.
