Looks like things are going from bad to worse, looks like drinkwater has flipped, once players start fighting among themselves it is a slippery slope to the drop. More and more papers are commenting on suso and smiths future., once the press wolves pack go a hunting there is usually only one outcome. I think the club is a shambles at the moment and the really sad thing is I can't see any way out of it.


1.) 11 Mar 2020 13:34:18
Just read the report Scotty, we are apparently considering terminating his loan.
No need for any consideration at all, just get rid, you can not be doing that, end of.
I see he picked the smallest player, wonder why?

2.) 11 Mar 2020 17:51:19
The answer is to calm down accept we are going down believe it or not stick with Dean Smith stop panic buying bad players and play are own kids, let’s try and build a team probably not going to happen. Clubs a mess supporters don’t help.

3.) 12 Mar 2020 06:32:58
Stick with Smith have you been on earth mate😂😂😂 not a chance he should keep his job woeful manager he's a championship manager that's his level and if we go dwn he shouldn't be in charge.

4.) 12 Mar 2020 06:56:22
So it's the supporters problem for overpaid players that haven't got a clue and a coach who is even more clueless. Perhaps if we have to play in empty stadiums because of the coronavirus we may be ok without supporters, the mind boggles!

5.) 12 Mar 2020 10:06:37
I know scotty it's not us the supporters.



31 Jan 2020 13:03:39
Not doing a kingy, reliable source, no medicals planned at bodymoor today, doesn't mean we can't sign anyone, just makes it less likely.


1.) 31 Jan 2020 14:08:12
Lol your just jumping on what persy has said and then coming up with that. Come on pls.

2.) 31 Jan 2020 16:50:41
Pot. Kettle. Black.

3.) 31 Jan 2020 18:11:25
Selke gone to Werder Bremen, shame because he looked useful




22 Jan 2020 00:07:37
Who played well, who didn't was of absolutely no consequence tonight, anyone who was there realised the enormity of the 95th minute goal. The stadium was still 75% full singing sweet Caroline well after the final whistle. It wasn't pretty at time's and we could of easily been two down if Reina hadn't made that save.

Still loads of improvement needed, however perhaps that result may just give us the momentum to push on. Lots of the team were no better than 6 out of 10, and we are no better than a struggling premier side, however I think some of the team will be lifted by tonight.

The passion they showed at the final whistle shows to me that playing for Aston Villa means something, so faults and all we can survive but many of the team must do better. For Villadave and a couple of others, I thought Targett did ok tonight and just cringe at the thought if Taylor had been on the field tonight.


1.) 22 Jan 2020 10:57:03
I agree Scotty. I thought Targett had a good game and thank God we signed Reina. For the last 20 mins of the 1st half I thought we lost our way a bit - not so much no recognizable striker but no recognizable footballer on the pitch. However, everyone put in a shift in the second half and we got what we deserved. Just a pity Deeney didn't get crocked in the process.

2.) 22 Jan 2020 13:36:50
Good summary of the game Scotty, and I do agree with you entirely mate.
Like you say we rode our luck a bit, but that in itself can have a positive effect especially you get away with it.
Looking forward to getting Ally up top, we are desperately short of purpose and instinctive behaviour, our attacks are rushed and snappy, and just fizzle out.
We need someone to help him though, for everyone its socks up.



08 Jan 2020 19:21:57
Kodja on his way out in January?


1.) 08 Jan 2020 21:57:24
Doubt it mate, unless we sign two first. Just sick hence not in the squad.

2.) 08 Jan 2020 22:00:49
Hope he is Scotty, I have never felt he is a team player, and that he would cut it in the prem.



05 Jan 2020 14:59:20
OMG, reports coming out of Stoke that Hogan is coming back at Villas behest. He can't get in a poor Stoke side, which just about sums up his ability. Oh well if he comes back he could play alongside Kodja, now there's a thought for nightmares.


1.) 05 Jan 2020 16:00:04
Sounds like a match made in heaven OK sorry championship.

Can you name all 16 clubs Jack Grealish has scored against for Villa?

Jack Grealish has scored 24 times for Aston Villa after bursting onto the scene as an 18-year-old.

The playmaker has experienced highs and lows with his boyhood club, losing FA Cup and League Cup finals at Wembley in addition to captaining the club back to the Premier League.

Grealish’s goals have been scored against 16 opponents across the Premier League, Championship and EFL Cup.

Take our quiz below and see if you can recall all of the clubs that he’s scored against in a Villa shirt. You have five minutes to name all.




19 Mar 2020 12:52:43
Can you name Villa's top 20 goalscorers since 2000?

Gareth Southgate scored the only brace of his career as Aston Villa kicked off 2000 with a 2-1 win against Leeds.

Those were the club’s first goals of the millennium, but Southgate doesn’t feature among Villa’s top scorers since that game.

On villa website
Can you name the 20 players who have scored the most goals in claret and blue – in all competitions – since 2000?

Simply enter the surnames of the players and try to complete the quiz within six minutes 👇.


1.) 19 Mar 2020 14:49:49
That`s easy Scotty

86 Agbonlahor
59 Angel
50 Barry
49 Benteke
48 Carew

24 Weimann
24 Grealish
23 Hendrie
22 Milner
22 Adomah

13 Merson.

2.) 19 Mar 2020 15:30:46
Dave did you do it in six minutes and secondly how much help did you have. How we could do with some goal scorers now.

3.) 19 Mar 2020 16:04:35
No Scotty, it would have took me 6 days mate.
You forget half of them, I got Agbonlahor, Angel, I thought Benteke was 3rd, then I gave up, Barry third hey, I am gobsmacked.
Would like Angel now, got to give Samatta a chance, he will be good with support.

Considering the country is on virtual lock down, villa have just emailed season ticket holders to apply for additional tickets for the wolves game in two weeks, could only happen at the Villa.


{Ed002's Note - Are you serious.}

1.) 17 Mar 2020 14:50:25
Dead serious.

{Ed002's Note - I would have hoped they would catch that.}

2.) 17 Mar 2020 14:54:14
tickets for our Premier League clash against Wolves are now on sale to Season Ticket Holders.

Please note that each additional ticket must be assigned to a unique Fan i'd who hasn't already got a ticket for this fixture assigned to them.

As a Season Ticket Holder, your Fan i'd is assigned to your seat for each game and therefore cannot be used to assign to an additional ticket.

Tickets are valid for any potential rearranged date if the match is postponed.

Stating the obvious public health is far more important than sport. That said sport is an important social factor for millions of fans and the forthcoming weeks are uncertain and many fans will wonder what they will do with themselves. So I am going to kick off with my thoughts, there seems to be a couple of scenarios, a short delay and a resumption of all games, canceling the euros and extending the season until the end of June and relegation and promotion as Normal. Another scenario, which does seem a distinct possibility, this season written off no further games and no relegation. If this scenario plays out and this is where the "banter" could start. So which players, manager and coaches have played their last games for Aston Villa. My picks, Jack, Reina, Mcginn, Chester, drinkwater, Wesley, Hause, Elmo, Hourihane. I think Terry and Smith should go, but wrongly some how I think they will still be here. Suso will definitely be gone but purslow will stay. Any other ideas out there bearing in mind we are talking hypotheticals.


1.) 13 Mar 2020 16:17:55
I would add Taylor, Jota and Lansbury to your list Scotty but if we aren’t relegated, ie. due to cancellation of all remaining games, I have a feeling McGinn and Wesley will still be Villa players.

2.) 13 Mar 2020 17:08:10
Mark I think you are probably nearer than me, my vote was a starter for ten.

3.) 13 Mar 2020 17:09:28
Are you not overlooking the fact that, there are pros and cons with most of our squad unfortunately.
Samatta, Heaton, Grealish, McGinn and Nyland have to be discarded from this to be fair.
But the others, I really am disappointed with most of them.
If it was to happen I would really swing the axe.

4.) 13 Mar 2020 19:32:20
There are several more you could put on that list Dave, however the more we ‘get shut of’, the more we have to replace and those replacements will have to be better, otherwise what’s the point. Do we have any idea as to how much will be available for new players? obviously if Jack is sold that will help in that department. Sometimes though I think it’s a case of better the devil you know.
Having said that, I honestly believe several of our youngsters should be promoted to the 1st team squad and bringing Callum O’Hare back should be seriously considered, in all circumstances, imo
It will be a complicated balancing act I think.

5.) 13 Mar 2020 19:54:52
Go on dave really swing the axe and share the casualties with us.

6.) 13 Mar 2020 20:09:19
Lots of heads on stakes, it’ll be better than Game of thrones, lol.

7.) 13 Mar 2020 20:20:30
Mark how are things where you are?

8.) 13 Mar 2020 20:54:30
Macron seems to be taking it pretty seriously Scotty. He was live on tv last night for about 1/ 2 hour.
All schools, colleges and universities will close as of Monday. Many businesses may well temporarily stop also. There are more cases of the virus over here than the uk I believe. I noticed a lot of panic buying in the supermarket tonight.
No football over here either, so don’t know what I’m going to do this weekend, might have to some gardening, or the dreaded DIY, ha.

9.) 13 Mar 2020 21:37:03
If your doing some DIY Mark, I will come and swing the axe for you buddy.



10 Mar 2020 12:07:41
Like villadaz things are still raw this morning and why? It's because we care, we follow our team with passion, commitment and have followed the team through thick and thin. We are not like players that come and go we are in for life.
Nobody died and the worst part of yesterday which overshadow the disgraceful performance was the news about Sid. My dad had alzheimers and football didn't matter when he was diagnosed, however he loved the Villa and carried on going to Villa Park for a number of years before it became difficult. He was a very critical fan and I know for sure what he would be thinking day looking down on things. Like the majority of us know, if gets "too hot in the kitchen get out". That includes CEO, sporting director, coaches, manager and players. Every one of these has contributed to the "plane crash" that is the current Aston Villa. Things have to change or nothing changes. We have witnessed the biggest waste of £150 million plus, we wouldn't get a third of our money back and if you think I am wrong let's see, we will know soon enough when the fire sale starts as soon as we are relegated. There are absolutely no positives this morning and for all the owners money I can't see us doing anything for a long while. The championship does bring respite as there are at least 12 poor teams and a win is easy to come by if you have financial backing, so we should be able to compete for promotion.
We started the season with high expectations and for a short while it looked positive, until we got found out with a manager who doesn't know his best team and has no Plan B. Let's not feel sorry for deano, he has a lucrative contract and will get another job in the championship, he will never get another chance in the Premier league. The next four games will probably see us all but relegated, so like many have called for let's see some if the promising youngsters. Apologies for the negative post, however I haven't seen anything to lift my spirits.


1.) 10 Mar 2020 14:28:21
No its a good post Scotty, and no apologies needed mate, you have said what you think, that`s how it should be.
Do you recall what I said about Reina a few weeks ago? well last night was exactly what I mean, the bloke is a joke, and would not feature again if I had my way.
That is the second time he has done that, he is a loose cannon, and is a liability.
No point at all in making a world class save, and then behaving like a total nutcase.

2.) 10 Mar 2020 14:54:37
Dave reina was only needed as back up Nyland had done nothing wrong, I suppose he wanted guarantees to play. If that's the case another glaring error from Smith. Unfortunately there was another 8 who don't deserve to play again.

Dave is absolutely right guys, however I share your frustration, we tend to lash out often unfairly when we are angry and frustrated. We all want our new signings to be successful, however history is not on our side. So give the guy a chance and if it doesn't work blame Smith and others. Based on this season's signings it certainly doesn't look promising and like you guys many enjoyed the championship, my grandson's for definite. My view if we do go down I don't think we have shown enough skil and determination and will be remembered as one season failures and that will take some getting over. Saturday game showed far too many weaknesses and highlighted how opposition coaches have sussed us out. Howe obviously looked how Jack and Targett hurt Leicester down the left, Targett wasn't able to influence the game. We have to be able to change things and I think this is where Smith shows his weaknesses.

Whatever happens with the rest of the season good or bad, Suso as sporting director has not in my opinion earned the significant salary he has taken. I would be very surprised if he is still with us next season.

Selkie one goal in 21 appearances, wants away because he is a bum warmer. Interesting that most teams keen are all at the bottom of the premier, IMO not the type of played we should even consider.

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.

Trust you, I really don't know what you get off on, I tried to put a positive spin on things, if you check government records over the last ten years recorded deaths on peak years for flue will possibly match the predicted deaths with coronavirus. If you can't be objective don't bother commenting.


{Ed002's Note - You really are an ignorant mother with no understanding of the situation at all. The level of stupidity is astounding in fact. And a "flue" is a duct that take the smoke up a chimney.}

So we got over sars, foot and mouth, swine flue, mad cow, ebola and many, many more, we are a resilient race. Health, Just like Financial markets are at rock bottom, this will recover, how do I know, because it always does and always will. I don't make light of the current situation, however things will get back to normal, maybe it will take time, longer than many peoples patience will stand. Remember flue kills at massive levels every year and we bounce back. So let's do our social isolation and if we do life "will get back to normal" the sooner we all do, we can all get back to doing what we enjoy. So dave let's all be cautious, but please be positive, it will work out.


{Ed002's Note - There is no comparison to the flu.}

Daved, couldn't agree more, unfortunately social media is a platform for fake news and people have nothing better to do at the moment, I would imagine its an agents paradise at the moment, they are probably the main perpetrators of most of this, let's hope and maybe, just maybe, when we get through these difficult times we may be surprised by loyalty shown by some if not all of the players you have mentioned. It appears that some unscrupulous individuals are trying to profit out of the current situation let's hope we have some decent guys that don't fall in to this category.

Sad news about Peter Whittingham, along with Mark Albrighton and Barry Bannan players we should have kept a lot longer.
