Weirder have now finally come out and stated Villa have now been in touch over Rashica hopefully these means things are in place to get the deal done.


1.) 14 Sep 2020 12:06:44
Villainrob, I would love him to come to VP, however it’s looking increasingly likely that he ain’t coming. However interesting the money we would have to pay for him is the same amount that apparently CP are going to pay for benhrama.

Ed: any updates on this one?

{Ed002's Note - I suspect he is waiting to see what other options exist.}

2.) 14 Sep 2020 13:19:30
Reliable and prudent journalists have commented that this one will happen. I think we’ve gone for Rashica to play left, Traore right, Watkins through the middle. Although all 3 are versatile and can play across the forward line. Rashica is a better player than Benrahma imo. and tried and tested at a higher level. The crucial factor seems to be pace. we’re clearly targeting explosive pace from the wings, which will massively improve our counter-attack options. I think both will arrive, and if we can get an economically sensible striker (Edouard, Brewster) I think we will do, and move Samatta on. All indications that Jack will play centrally at 8 or 10.

3.) 14 Sep 2020 15:13:48
Hodgson’s recent comments seem to suggest he has had to restate Zaha is available to would be suitors. I may be reading it wrong, but Eze and Benrahma have been planned a replacements, but the main man is now unable to find takers.

Brentford hard-faced dealings with us May well have put Smith and Lange off further dealings. I think a Benrahma deal is off the cards, unless other arrangements go belly up.

If Rashica does join Traore through the ‘in door‘, we will have six wingers - if we exclude Grealish. Vassilev is a youngster and Trezeguet is worth perseverance, but surely Jota and El Ghazi look to have been pushed out of first team activities. Exits for both would make sense with another few.

4.) 14 Sep 2020 16:13:03
Ant, personally I feel the Rashica deal is in the balance and he is holding back on committing himself at this stage.
If that is the case I can’t see DS and Lange waiting too long before they go elsewhere.

5.) 14 Sep 2020 16:19:02
Rashica apparently said he's waiting for a better option? Is that the sort of player we want at the club?

6.) 14 Sep 2020 17:04:28
Despite all the positive recent reports, I still feel the Rashica deal could well do a Sancho.

Would that then rekindle the King option? Spurs now appear more interested in Sorloth, whilst Man Utd are hardly chasing the Bournemouth man down.

7.) 14 Sep 2020 18:41:59
I’ve just read an article in the German press that states Rashica will play for WB on the weekend against HB. He is definitely holding out for a club in the CL.

I don’t think we will get him if I’m honest. Time to look elsewhere - bale lol 😬. I think go for behnrama or king . Rashica sling ya hook ya cretin 😂.

8.) 14 Sep 2020 20:22:03
We should have moved on from Rashica weeks ago when it was clear he didn’t want to join us, we need to pursue Benrahma if the price is £20 not £30 million the understanding he has with Watkins would be a real plus let Rashica stew in the Bundesliga.

9.) 15 Sep 2020 12:32:46
There’s a suggestion on Twitter that the Rashica position is likely to become clearer after a meeting on tomorrow (Wednesday) . Quite what the arrangements are, I couldn’t say.

10.) 15 Sep 2020 22:10:52
VillaMole has indicated Rashica wants a sell on clause included in his contract terms, should a bigger club come sniffing and he want to go. Seems as though he sees it as his ‘get out jail’ card. At this stage, talks remain on going.

To be honest, I am not convinced there is any real commitment there. Despite the guy’s talent, if he would rather be elsewhere, does that really cut it with team mates and fans alike?

I know there is not much loyalty in football these days, but this is taking it too far for me. I would be working on the alternative options I think. Buendia, Benrahma and King (if he has put his MU hankering to bed) .

11.) 17 Sep 2020 14:04:49
I don't think we will take benhrama. At the start of the season Brentford said they would sell one of the two. Not both. I doubt benhrama will go.



03 Sep 2020 08:19:13
Rumours of Freddie being with a move away from club this better be a rumour think he can grow into a very good right back. Advantage for us Cash can also play right mid as well as right back. If we are looking at other full backs how about we offer Brentford a swap deal Taylor for Henry.


1.) 03 Sep 2020 08:32:57
Brentford won’t take players like Taylor. The amount of shouts on socials saying add hogan, Lansbury, Taylor etc when negotiating Watkins or Benrahma. Brentford don’t recruit like that and won’t just take players for the sake of it.

2.) 03 Sep 2020 09:51:18
I agree Chris. West Ham have to move on a couple of high earners, and I don’t think they’ll be in for Benrahma unless they can sell Lanzini or Felipe Anderson. Got to be honest, wouldn’t mind the latter if the price was right. Quality player.

3.) 03 Sep 2020 10:02:54
Watkins will be announced by Monday I’m being told we have agreed personal terms with the player but we are still in negotiations with Brentford.
My sources say the fee will be an initial £22M rising to £25.5M with add ons.
Also forget the Wilson speculation that has been done to push the negotiations with Brentford.

4.) 03 Sep 2020 11:41:07
That sound good if correct and the figures seem plausible given recent news snippets.

5.) 03 Sep 2020 11:59:24
So Watkins not coming then, unless kingy finally gets one right at last.

6.) 03 Sep 2020 20:06:10

7.) 04 Sep 2020 09:01:08
The only sources Kingy has is Daddies and Heinz 🤣🤣🤣.

With Liverpool after jota from wolves would anyone take a punt on taking shaquiri. Think he wants first team football and to be playing weekly. Think he would be a good player for us and he can be very dangerous.


1.) 18 Sep 2020 18:18:30
No sign of tricky traore now that 1 of his stars is headed out of the “golden palace” 😂😂.

2.) 18 Sep 2020 18:48:26
Maybe they can buy our Jota off us, then the fans that have got his name on their shirt can keep hold of it and spend the rest of their Giro to buy their 1st ever can of deodorant?


3.) 18 Sep 2020 18:52:05
It’s funny, whenever I’ve had a peek on the Wolves banter site, I’ve never seen a post from tricky. I’m wondering if it’s a case of incognito, and that he’s perhaps actually a bluenose, but too embarrassed to admit it 😂.

4.) 18 Sep 2020 18:59:37
I think he’s Wolves Mark, can’t post on here using crayons


5.) 19 Sep 2020 12:26:44
There's only 1 tricky Traore- and he's just signed for us 👍.



11 Sep 2020 10:23:41
Hoping we can complete the Martinez deal pretty quickly. From what I watched of him last few games last season seems like a very good keeper and would bring the best out of Heaton when he returns. Also hoping we can get Rashica in would add some quality to the much needed winger area. Also if it's true we are still after another striker and Edouard is still be highly mentioned also being an Celtic fan I think if we could add him it would give us the firepower we need up top to get us up the table. Also meaning Watkins can play on the wing or does Deano change his formation and go the two up top. I would only personally like to see us play 4-2-3-1 or 4-1-4-1 and if we could add the players in as mentioned I would like to see us like up like this

Martinez or Heaton GK
Cash/ Freddie RB
Konsa/ Mings CB
Targett LB
Saint John and dougie Holding but mcginn allowed to push on
Raschia if we land him LWF
Super Jack CAM
Watkins RWF
Edouard CF

Again Martinez or heaton
Again Cash or Freddie

Now I know people on here will have their opinions about the line up and formations and obviously the signings but my honest opinion I think that either of those two formations I have mentioned will allow us to get the best out of the like of jack and other players. Personally I also think Dougie Luiz is the key to the team in either of the formations him holding allows the full backs to press on. He also has a good passing range so he could drop into between the CB to pick up the ball and spray the balls long on the switch ball into the full backs pushing on or the wingers.


1.) 11 Sep 2020 13:00:21
I think that team finishes anywhere between 10th and 15th Rob, I’ll take that!

2.) 11 Sep 2020 13:23:15
I personally would say 8th to 15th but I totally accept your 10/ 15th comment I’m just hoping we can get those other deals done.

3.) 11 Sep 2020 13:49:21
Chris I am with you 10-15 th will be progress.

4.) 11 Sep 2020 15:37:37
If we avoided injuries. because squad depth still isn’t great. that side is good enough for as high as 8th in my book.
Martinez is quality.
Cash i think will prove to be a fairly marked upgrade on Fred.
Douglas in front of Mings and Konsa looked really solid post-restart.
McGinn was exceptional start of last season; fully fit he can be the legs in midfield. And I think Jack is as good as anyone in the 8/ 10.
Watkins is going to be a star. Has a bit of everything. And Rashica (now looking actually quite likely to sign🤞🏼) will give us pace and a genuine goal threat from wide.

I would LOVE Edouard but that’s the one looks least likely to me. Think it’ll be Watkins in that role, and Buendia or maybe Harry Wilson wise right. Or even. an improved and motivated Trezeguet?!

5.) 11 Sep 2020 18:03:20
Replying to all posts ahead I think we all agree on thst this side can easily cope in this league hopefully push on to greater things.

6.) 11 Sep 2020 22:14:27
That would b a heck of a window rob looks really good on paper, only thing I’d add would b a young and hungry LB to push target and maybe swap engles for a new CB even if it’s only a bench CB I don’t rate engles.

7.) 12 Sep 2020 00:04:11
I think grelish is better as a winger when he played in the middle he dropped far far to deep and wanted to take the whole team on. As a left winger I think he plays a lot better.

8.) 12 Sep 2020 08:16:35
To whackattack I totally agree with the LB part and yeah a new CB I would go for too but I do like both Engles and Targett but we definitely need the squad depth. Tom with jack playing in the CAM role he gets the ball more often and can attack the heart of the other teams defence. If you watch him carefully enough when he’s on the left he still drifts inside to get as much as the ball as possible. Whatever area Jack plays in he effects the game for us on and off the ball. Wonder how many fouls he will draw this season.



03 Sep 2020 10:32:02
Like the positivity I've just heard in the Matty Cash interview. On to the next signing.


1.) 03 Sep 2020 15:45:13
Yeah me too Rob, very good interview mate, and he said all the right things, he knows exactly where he wants to go.



02 Sep 2020 11:03:14
See Leeds may be after Axel from United. If we are looking for a CB think we need to jump ahead of them for this move. Him and Mings where solid during the promotion run in and formed a strong partnership. Think this is the man to play alongside Mings and make us stronger defensively. Targett and Cash or Freddie at right back and Luiz in front of them would give us a solid structure. Stick Saint John Mcginn in with Luiz and play jack then hopefully Watkins and 2 wingers in would could be threat going forward.


1.) 02 Sep 2020 11:50:30
Although I like the rest of your team rob I don’t think axel is better than konsa even house has more experience in the PL, in terms of a center back I think we will b buying to cover either mings or konsa if 1 gets injured, if I was adding a CB I’d go for experience, axel hasn’t had the experience of even konsa, personally I see Lange going abroad for a CB, I’d like to see romero in goal benerama on the wing and either Ollie or Tammy up front, I’d b happy with squad if they bought those 3 and kept our best players of coarse.

2.) 02 Sep 2020 12:09:00
Don’t forget guys we still have Engels who I thought done well before his injury.

3.) 02 Sep 2020 12:54:18
I’d sell Engels always has a mistake in him I’m afraid and you can’t afford that in the premiership. Personally I would sign Axel I think based on what we saw in the Championship he has the makings of a decent premiership centre back, he is also quite quick and versatile so I could see us on occasion going with 3 centre backs with Tuanzebe in the side particularly if we sign Cash as he and Targett playing as offensive wing backs would work well I think, however I am not sure I could see such a system working as well with the likes of Engels or Hause as the third centre back. In addition Tuanzebe is still quite young and fits the age profile of player the club is now targeting.

4.) 02 Sep 2020 16:15:38
I like Engles but has the mistake in him. Like Hause and Konza too. I think we definitely need to get a CB who can build a good partnership with Mings and that was why I suggested Axel. Hopefully we will get someone in.

5.) 02 Sep 2020 16:34:45
Pace at the back is crucial in the PREM. Axel has that in abundance. It’s just his injury issues that concern me.

6.) 02 Sep 2020 17:00:26
Would always welcome Axel back, he was excellent alongside Mings. However. I think Konsa has now developed into a better player, post lockdown he’s been outstanding. Personally, I worry more about errors from Hause than Engels. but the two of hem are decent enough CBs to back up the others. If we switch to a back 3 (which might be in Deano’s mind getting Cash and allegedly going for Watkins AND Wilson) . then we’d need another CB but I expect he’d look for a left-footer so he can play Mings in the middle.

7.) 02 Sep 2020 18:58:39
I'll drop this bombshell, and speaking as a former centre half, you're all going on about who will partner Mings, when I think Konsa is the nailed on centre half, pace, awareness and ability to mark an opponent. don't get me wrong Mings is a put my body on the line defender but his positional awareness is absolutely diabolical from what I've seen (except last 4 games when he seemed to improve) obviously if he can show the same ability next season then that a massive plus, but for me Konsa along with Luiz were our best 2 players post lockdown.
Shoot me down if you will, just stating my opinion but Mings has a lot to learn.
Ps don't give a flying #### what division or league our signings come from as long as they can play and have some bottle 👍.

8.) 02 Sep 2020 19:40:31
Bang on the button Moose, totally agree mate.

9.) 02 Sep 2020 19:57:27
Moose, I agree with you about Konza ( absolute revelation post lockdown ) . It’s just that you read reports of Villa wanting to sign another centre back, which does beg the question, is the intention to play 3 at the back. If it is Axel would I think fit the bill to play alongside Mings and Konsa. Mings being left footed would naturally be the left sided player.
With the imminent signing of Matty Cash and the possibility of Rico Henry for the left side, I do wonder if 3-5-2 is the plan, with Guilbert and Targett also competing for those places.
If this is the plan, would there be any need to sign Benrahma?
It could also explain why they’re reportedly looking to bring in 2 strikers.
Could of course be way off the mark, but you just never know.

10.) 02 Sep 2020 21:40:10
Why does everyone want axel back? The guy is always injured and isn't as good as konsa! Think we'll stick with our centre backs and deano will use similar tactics as after lockdown. Wilson would be a good signing, does it matter if he's 28? No! Vardy's 33 and prem top scorer. We've got a young squad and could do with a bit of nous. We need quality veterans that have good game management.



01 Sep 2020 07:55:34
I know not to believe newspapers but if rumours of West Ham being after Mario Gotze who is a free then we should be all over this like a shot. His ability to play the key pass like Jack would only benefit our strikers. Also forget going after Wilson from Bournemouth and the Liverpool one for that matter focus on getting Edouard from Celtic.

Apparently he’s agreed terms with Newcastle let him go there. He only wants to go there cause Fraser is heading there. He’s only had one good season in the prem scoring 14 other season has hit double figures. Let him go go them.

You most likely didn’t even know about the players who signed until mendes come in and they started to come to you. Your mostly playing Fifa to find out who they are. Quick to comment on a villa page just like blues West Brom and the rest of midlands fan base you actually just wish you where us. So what atm yeah you are the best Team in the Midlands but like many before and many to come you still will never be bigger than us. Why don’t you all go together and count your trophy collections and come back when you have all together have finally past our collection. How’s the carabao cup going won’t be adding thst to your collection this season.

Mendes doing his wolves business again and set to sign another Portuguese player. First of all another cut price deal just like all their other signings and secondly what are Barcelona playing at they paid nearly double what they are selling him for. Also regarding us loftus cheek I would like to see us try and bring in on a loan at some added height to our midfield.


{Ed001's Note - Barca have financial problems and need to sell.}
