Hi ED02 sorry to bother you but I know your clued up when it comes to things about FFP.Im sure I read somewhere but I can't find it with regards the Danny Ings transfer what I did muster from it was that Ings was sold to free up some funds as he was alone on 10% of our wages and selling him was the only option to free up funds for the Summers activity? I know you've mentioned it countless times on other sites but just wanted clearing up on here many thanks??


{Ed002's Note - Ings was not taking up 10% of the wages at Aston Villa, but he was on a significant wage - and there are still two or three polayers at the club earning more. The reason he was sold was with 18 months left on his contract the club could still get a decent return on him - a couple of clubs were keen - and the offer from West Ham was seen as decent so it worked out well for everyone.}

Cheers Ed It wasn't too clear what I read but that's cleared it up for me thank you

Jack grealish pictured in full Villa traimimg gear today all over twitter.


1.) 01 Aug 2021 17:29:15
Sadly doesn't mean much more than a deal is not agreed yet, he's professional and was due back in training so has shown up to his credit. Think we will find out tomorrow what is happening, expect an announcement either way tomorrow, this saga has to be out to rest either way immediately.



05 Jul 2021 20:30:59
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.

My club my team ASTON VILLA I LOVE YOU

Here here DAZ ?? nights like tonight is what it’s all about, better than putting 7 past the pool I think ?



31 Oct 2023 07:45:34
Not that we already knew, but it is now official that we have the best goalkeeper in the world at Villa. Who would have thought that 5 years ago how we have come along long way from looking at administration to being 5th in the PL and playing in Europe with arguably the best manager we've had in my lifetime. Long may it continue!

RIP Charlie Aitken HEITS


1.) 29 Oct 2023 19:01:07
Wonderful player. I saw him play in the first Villa game I ever saw down at Villa Park.
RIP Charlie.

2.) 29 Oct 2023 20:56:06
Another shocker, RIP Charlie .
When I first started going to the Villa, it was through a friend of mine Kieth Callahan. His Dad was ex Villa player Mushy, they actually lived at Villa in the cottage in the grounds . With Kieth we often went out with a lot of the Villa youngsters, Charlie was one of them . He was a great lad, had plenty of laughs and good times, more than can be said about George Graham miserable bugger HaHa . Even Charlie would agree with that one . Holte ender in the sky UTV .

3.) 29 Oct 2023 22:15:15
When I was at primary school in Solihull in the late 60’s, we used to go to Olton Friary (which still had and has proper Monks) for footie training. Charlie Aitken was a regular presence helping out with the sessions much to our wonderment as little Villains. I guess it was related to his RC background and a great opportunity for us young uns. RIP.

4.) 31 Oct 2023 14:55:10
I have an antique chair in my man cave that I bought from his shop in Acocks many many years ago, once he finished his career and I remember him every time I sit on it.

As its mental health awareness day I don't know if anyone has watched the video that Norwich City have put up please watch it a video which should touch your heart.


1.) 12 Oct 2023 12:35:29
The video says it all about how invisible mental health issues can be, particularly with blokes as we typically avoid sharing them with others. It was forwarded to me by my niece whose life is blighted by bipolar every single day. It’s a powerful message and Norwich should be applauded for putting it out there.



07 Oct 2023 11:42:41
Based on every team's last 20 Premier League games, only Manchester City (52) have more points than Aston Villa (42).And yet some people have the nerve to moan about our team and manager!


1.) 07 Oct 2023 12:24:26
Yep. I know everyone wants to see more progress when they see that there has been some, we’re all guilty of this. but I also think It’s really important for us to remember that this time 5 years ago we were still in the championship playing under Steve Bruce!

The big one they are talking about Dave is Lukaku.Personally I think he will be a bit disruptive in our dressing room seems a bit of a journey man to me hope this is not true.

Can't for Saturday VJ be a great atmosphere down VP again and hopefully a good performance otherwise someone might have something to say about it AGAIN.I would have taken easily 3 points from both of these games beforehand but time will tell if we get 4 or all 6 no matter what behind our wildest dreams this has been a great season so far infact the best I can remember in a very very long time but some will moan for the sake of moaning I guess!
