We have apparently bid 15m for Szalia from fenerbache. Central defender. This comes from a direct source at the club I met yesterday.

Looking at the training pics on the website no sign of Mcginn or el Gazi.

Check Twitter, he's on the training pics as is el gahzi.

Both Ramsey's and Chuckematchya trained with 1st team.

This is a new part to a previous link which is slippng down the pages. So carrying on villaDave aVilladaz and co, I know they are some decent players around the lower leagues, but I go back to the days when we bought our players from Liverpool, stsunten, houghton, saunders, man Utd God not from notts county or wycombe if you get my drift. We need to be looking upwards not down. But I'm also of the opinion that with deano in charge we won't attract those players. Love him and thank him for getting us where we are but I'd like to see us go out and get Poch and let him bring in the players that he could attract. Just let's be more positive a a club.


1.) 30 Jul 2020 11:45:55
I really like Poch I think he is a fantastic manager but are we really saying Deano in the time you have been with us less than 2 years let’s not forget, thanks for getting us promoted in your first season when let’s be honest most of us thought that was unlikely to happen, thanks for getting us to a cup final where we lost to one of the best sides in Europe but we were competitive, and thanks for keeping us in the premier league when it looks like he had his hands tied when it came to transfers and your thanks is your P45? the guy should be given the freedom of the city not sacked. If we did that to him then no manager with any class should touch us with a 10 foot pole and rightly so . Thankfully the noises coming out of Villa Park suggests we are not going to do anything so crass.


2.) 30 Jul 2020 12:16:16
John, there are lots of managers who have done much more for their club and been sacked, mourinho ancelotti, pearson at leicester, clough, etc etc but it hasn't stopped them being a successful club. It's about ambition and ambitious clubs make ambitious decisions.


3.) 30 Jul 2020 14:33:33
The Mourinho’s and Ancellotis of this world were already at well established Premiership clubs who were expecting to be challenging for trophies every season with established infrastructures we are not at that level at the moment. I cannot think of a club who changes managers every season being successful we only have to look at Watford to see what happens if you are not careful. Ambition is one thing foolhardiness another.

As I said in my previous post I really rate Poch but seriously given his ambition to manage one of the Spanish giants and the time it has taken him to establish his reputation why on earth would you risk that to manage Villa. It takes an age to build a reputation and 5 minutes to lose it. When the time comes to replace the manager which isn’t now I think rather than shopping at Harrods we might need to lower our sights a little maybe Waitrose.


4.) 30 Jul 2020 18:38:35
John remember poch made his name at Southampton and potentially we are much bigger than them. Potentially bigger than spurs if we choose to get someone of his calibre.


5.) 30 Jul 2020 20:38:42
I remember it well SV but he took that job when he was making his name in management not an established name as he is now, so in effect he had very little to lose if he takes on the Villa and it goes wrong he has everything to lose.

Not been on here for a while, so hope you are all well. let's get the upcoming start up going, how do we stay up, what's the best team to achieve it. I've got my thoughts but would like to hear some others.


1.) 01 Jun 2020 20:18:50
Nyland has to go in goal and i would play the same formation as wolves we need two upfront davis an sammata mgcinn grelish nycamba in centre mid. We need to think more postive. The teams we got are good not gona lie but at least fight till the end anybodys beatable. Cbks mings engels konsa.


2.) 03 Jun 2020 16:33:56
WTW I didn't see the Nylan one coming. I think deano will stick with pepe though. I think we need to stop the goals so on that basis I would go pepe, guilbert, engels, mings hause, elmo, mcginn, nakamba target, jack and samatta. Target and elmo would defend better than trex or el gazi but would also get forward. Let jack roam around samatta, mcginn can pull the strings.

Did anyone see my post that went onto the rumours page about Szalia from fenerbache


1.) 21 Apr 2022 13:21:53
I did he’s a good player has been Hungary’s stand out player for a while, left sided I think and would provide real competition for Mings but I fear we may get outbid by the Geordies, and given there turnaround and the likelihood now that they will finish above us they might seem a better option.


2.) 21 Apr 2022 14:45:58
Lord, don't know if the Geordies are sniffing. I was in Turkey recently and met the media operations manager for Fenerbache. He is the one who told me we had bid for him, so its from a so called good source.


3.) 21 Apr 2022 15:13:03
According to the Newcastle Chronicle the Geordies are monitoring his situation as some of there other centre back targets are not interested in moving to Tyneside.Apparently he nearly joined Chelsea in the January window and is available at circa £17 million if that is right we should snap there hands off but I fear once one club declares an interest it will spark a bit of an auction I am sure some of the Italian and Spanish clubs will be interested as well.

Well the train breaking down on the way home was about the most exciting part of the day yesterday. I thought we were awful from start to finish. The arsenal weren't that great and we couldn't get near them. We just weren't at the races. Can't even think of a positive from anyone.


1.) 20 Mar 2022 23:19:22
I’m sure most of us remember the old days - for me it was 10 pm on a winters night having lost a mid-week match 1-0 at Portman Road to Ipswich and facing a pre-A14 4 hour drive home in my old moggie minor. It’s great if you’ve won, but soul-destroying if you’ve lost.


 

 

15 Mar 2022 10:46:37
Finally getting back up to VP this weekend. Hopefully the 4 hours each way will be worth it.


1.) 15 Mar 2022 13:28:01
Early start then mate, hope we win and its a good game SV


2.) 15 Mar 2022 13:55:31
yep be up bright and early and hope for a win fingers xsd. Got seat in the Trinity top tier, first time I've been in there as usually in the Holte.


 

 

23 Feb 2022 16:04:45
Been having a think about stevies options and came up with this. Your thoughts on it.
Matinez
Konsa Chambers Mings

Cash Mcginn Sanson Ramsey Digne

Buendia Coutinho

When defending Chambers can move up the DM if cash and digne are back. If not we have three at the back anyway. Going forward cash and digne would have more space. Up top benny and phil could cause chaos with their little runs.


1.) 24 Feb 2022 19:56:07
Talking my football there SV.
Our defence has more holes than a fishing net!

villajohn, I suggested Aguero a couple of weeks back and got slated that his is injury prone and isn't worth the money.

Sorry not for me at any price. I think there are more consistent performers out there we could look at. He's too hit and miss for my liking. We need players who like jack/ Luiz can influence games not to play a bit part. Goes missing far too much for me.

Dave, what I like about Watkins is that he is a six yard box man. gets the scrappy goals which count. So I say let's give him the support and hope he fires on all cylinders.

Not really seen a lot of watkins if i'm honest. Looks quite decent in what I have seen but I just get a bit jittery when we sign the in form championship strikers ( Mcfatface, Hogan) if you get my drift. I would rather we went out and splashed the cash to get Tammy in.

Scot, I can't lay the blame at the feet of the coaches, only at the feet of the overpaid, overrated players. Too many mediocre money grabbers are in the team. I keep saying it stevie is trying to get a tune out of a broke fiddle

As I said before stevie is playing with a broken fiddle. Someone please tell me how Ramsey stays on the pitch for 90 mins. Sorry gents he's overrated in my opinion. As for the rest this page isn't big enough. I'd keep martinez, cash, Digne and continuo, the rest can go to some other mid table wannabees
With any half decent strikers we'd have been out of site by halftime. With ant half decent Central defenders we would have conceded 3 of the goals. Rant over utv

Ings 100% agree. Stevie knows he's trying to get a tune out of a broken fiddle. Let him make the repairs and judge him from there.
