Any of you heard we might be looking at jerome sinclair on loan?

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Jan 2018 14:26:54
Haven’t heard it but he was awful at blues and doesn’t really fit the mound of striker we need. Bruce said today we are close to one loan which I’m guessing is Ulloa, hopefully get it over the line before Barnsley at home.

12 Jan 2018 14:44:23
Jerome sinclair would be a crap signing in my opinion,
We can do far better than that!

12 Jan 2018 11:30:44
Ryan kent about to go on loan to Bristol city?
Good player if rummor true,

Agree0 Disagree1

12 Jan 2018 12:46:00
Not better than Ohare.

12 Jan 2018 13:11:19
Agree I am a big o'hare fan myself but I can see Bruce sending him out on loan,

12 Jan 2018 14:27:14
No ones better than O’hare.

12 Jan 2018 14:45:09
Chris tut! Tut!

11 Jan 2018 10:40:53
If you look at the latest tweet from our owner it looks like he is losing patience with our progress so far,

Agree0 Disagree6

11 Jan 2018 15:25:53
I disagree. I think if you read it again, he is losing patience with negativity.

11 Jan 2018 16:08:41
If he wants to blame anybody he should blame himself he hired RDM he hired Steve Bruce all have wasted our money on bang average players. The key to this lesson is don't invest in something you know nothing about then moan when it goes wrong. If you have a business you need to know a bit about it not just invest in the latest chinese craze.

11 Jan 2018 16:08:24
The tweet I saw was dated the 8th Jan which was my mistake I thought it was his latest,
But compare the one I saw to what he said today he has said 2 completely different views on where we are,

11 Jan 2018 18:14:59
He is on about negativity within the club fans etc and with reading some posts on here you can see why negativity breeds negativity the good dr is the best thing that has happened to our club for a long time and I can see him saying sod this I'm off because of some negative fans would I blame him NO.

11 Jan 2018 19:59:34
He also has been having a go at wolves style of management for Mendez bringing in good players. Wolves fans replied rightly You have wasted millions. Its his bad management of a club we came down and blew all our parachute money he's on about negativity but he was the one who started the negativity for getting crap managers who then wasted money on crap players.

11 Jan 2018 20:58:05
Utter rubbish.

11 Jan 2018 21:43:54
RDM was the wrong choice (his choice) and we've been playing catch up ever since. If he's a businessman, he wants us to go up and he'll easily double his investment when we do, that's the time I'd be keeping an eye on his tweets


11 Jan 2018 22:01:09
This would be the second parking ticket of the year, however these two genuinely believe the crap they spew out, without evidence, no rhyme or reason, it’s all crystal clear to them, so there’s no point even wasting a ticket on them🙈😂.

11 Jan 2018 22:56:38
Ross McCormack flop Hogan flop Bjarnson flop Glenn Whelan flop James Bree flop Lansbury flop Tommy Elphick flop Ritchie De Laet Flop Iam sorry have we spent our money wisely?

11 Jan 2018 23:42:33
Wtw you have got be most negative person ever.
Yes he hired di matteo but his cv wasn't bad. He hired Bruce I'm not his fan but at the time I was delighted. Yes we spent a load and a lot were flops but we're not only club do that. To be honest every signing I've been happy with but some can't handle pressure of fans jumping on there bk.
If we didn't spend money you moan then aswell.
Think going give this site miss for a bit. You just put people on a downer.
Get behind the team club and owner. And shut up moaning.

12 Jan 2018 00:28:55
Walkies do you spout all this, when your having a pint with Mr Wyness, your hoppo .

12 Jan 2018 06:41:26
Oh I feel so depressed, how awful things are! Our last home game we could only put 5 past lowly Bristol City who were second in the division! To make life worse we are 5 points off automatic promotion. The nail in the coffin is we are going to have to have 10 changes to the team on Saturday. I am so envious of the feel good factor at small Heath and Sandwell town! It could be worse I could be a dingle!
Let's get real here and can't wait to see how villa first team squad perform at the city ground tomorrow, every manager will make some bad signings. The most successful manager of our time bought Djemba DJemba remember for ManUtd and probably a few others. UTV.

12 Jan 2018 08:51:24
everyone moaning about the signings we have made and how they have been a waste of money, other than thor i think they all should have been good signings,

12 Jan 2018 12:33:04
It's because we are not top of the league and not in fa cup nor the semi final of the league cup nor in europe.

16 Jan 2018 18:52:57
It's only words, it cannot have an effect on what actually happens.
I really can't believe that grown up people believe what is written by some posters
Much is posted to see their names on the site, they need acknowledgement, approbation, and replying to everything is just what they want.

10 Jan 2018 15:44:16
Villa launch double loan swoop for Leicester's Ulloa and Amartey.
Everyone knows about Ulloa and anyone who watches us play I think can see he'd be brilliant in our team. Didn't know much about Amartey but judging from Leicester fans opinion he sounds like Jedinak with legs, although they say he's not excellent on the ball. Would be ideal to be fair, get Whelan as far away from the team as possible, rotate Jedinak and Amartey to keep everything fresh. Hope this comes off.

Agree1 Disagree0

10 Jan 2018 19:39:03
I live as you know in Leicester, and most my friends/ family are crisp fans.
They say the Ulloa deal has been sorted for a long time, since the summer, a loan that becomes permanent if we go up.
They also say that amarty is siht, and would pay us to take him. I’ve never seen the lad. however. they also say this is happening!

10 Jan 2018 20:01:10
Fingers crossed then, from what’s on twitter amartey has been played out of position a lot so has had a few stinkers. Hope the Ulloa deal comes off ASAP.

{Ed001's Note - Leicester usually play Amartey at right back but he is really a central midfielder.}

10 Jan 2018 20:10:47
Like I said, I don’t know much of him. Just repeating what’s been said.
Rb is the last position we need a player for anyway!

We could do with another inforcer in the middle.

Anyways. thanks Ed001, Wasn’t expecting you to answer one of my posts till about March April time. that’s when you normally resurface! 😏🤫.

{Ed001's Note - I only go for about 3 days though Flacks, it just feels like longer for you as you miss me so much.}

10 Jan 2018 20:33:30
Jesus, that’s true. normally feels like 40 days, and 40 nights.

{Ed001's Note - funnily enough I was out wandering in the desert earlier.}

10 Jan 2018 20:46:18
Just laughed out loud! Lol

Did you happen to have a conversation with a fairly hot bush?!

{Ed001's Note - she wasn't bad at all, but how did you know her name was Bush?}

10 Jan 2018 21:13:27
I read her diary, was on a couple of stone tablets!

{Ed001's Note - stone tablets? I wouldn't want to swallow a couple of those next time I have a headache!}

10 Jan 2018 21:16:23
This thread is giving me a headache!

{Ed001's Note - you sound like my missus now.}

10 Jan 2018 21:38:57

{Ed001's Note - not really, it is more of a Brazilian she has.}

10 Jan 2018 21:58:49
That’s twice you’ve made me laugh out loud! Lol.

11 Jan 2018 12:45:37
Dont know bout you laughing out loud flacks the banter between you and edoo1 nearly had me pissing my pants mate. Lol.

{Ed001's Note - glad to hear it mate.}

09 Jan 2018 17:15:14
The s*n reporting Brighton want to push through a 3mil move for Davis. Has to be rubbish, however if we got a big of 8mil+ I'd take it if it meant we could go and buy someone to replace him.

Agree1 Disagree1

10 Jan 2018 09:21:16
How about a deal?
Murray + £5m for Davis?
Murray scores on a regular basis, Davis holds the ball up.
Currently we need goals.
Davis is still raw but we need a finisher.

10 Jan 2018 14:13:25
Do you trust Bruce to bring in a good striker to replace Davis if he was sold?
Davis going nowhere in my opinion.

09 Jan 2018 11:00:06
Do we have any interest in any players this month edds.

{Ed001's Note - there is always interest in players, for instance you are one of a few clubs who are keen on Ryan Kent on loan from Liverpool. I believe one of the issues is the loan of Onomah, which Bruce would like to end this month. Not sure why, has he not done well for you? I haven't had a chance to see much of Villa this season.}

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Jan 2018 14:18:45
Not done well is an under statement.
I'm sure he must have written in his contract if he fit he plays because no matter how bad he plays he still starts next game.

09 Jan 2018 17:13:46
Think Onomah has had one good game, the rest he looks uninterested and knackered. Probably has been the worst performer this season (from the players who have played) . Everyone was raving about this Ryan Kent before the season, good with both feet apparently and looked brilliant in pre season for Liverpool. Didn’t he end up on loan at Friberg though Ed?

{Ed001's Note - he has just been recalled mate.}

09 Jan 2018 17:48:26
Ahh makes sense, would be good if it comes off, everyone wanted him in the summer.

10 Jan 2018 14:15:14
Would rather Bruce got rid of anomah,
He looks average at best,

10 Jan 2018 19:02:45
Do you mean Adomah?
Our top scorer!

11 Jan 2018 09:41:14
No the useless one from spurs.

08 Jan 2018 10:50:26
A friend of mine said Steve Bruce has had no money to spend that's why we are stuck which made me laugh. At the start of the season Wyness said that we are going for experienced players which is fine but even Wyness will tell people at the start of the season Bruce had a choice he wanted experienced players rather than money to spend.

So here is how it works John Terry is on big money around 60k a week plus his signing on fee and agent fee that free signing has prob cost the club 10 million overall then we sign Glen Whelan 2 million again a experienced Premier League player on around 40k a week plus agent fee plus signing on them 2 players alone is prob 16 million. FFP also includes wages just because it says free or 2 million you have to include wages and signing on fee and agent fee these players have drop down but are still on good money.

there's nothing wrong with what Bruce has done but people shouldn't say we have had no money because even tho there ageing premier league players they have cost us a fortune that's without going into the rest he signed in the summer. He gambled in doing it this way let's hope it comes off. UTV.

Agree1 Disagree2

08 Jan 2018 11:20:04
Your maths is awful mate.

08 Jan 2018 13:57:33
If you are going to get picky, So is your grammar chris. haha.
You should say, (your math`s are awful mate)

08 Jan 2018 15:00:02
well not really it depends how much Terry and Glenn Whelans signing on fee was and agent fee and there wages point I was trying to make is Bruce has had loads of money and gave it old as beens for wages there not all free and cheap as they make out.

08 Jan 2018 16:03:20
I didn’t even realise Dave, cheers lmao🙈 I’m guessing “your math is awful” would of been correct? And WTW Bruce has had money your right, but the math you backed it up with doesn’t add up, unless your saying between them Terry and Whelan got 9million pound in signing on fees and agents fees. I wouldn’t be entirely sure Terry was on 60k and Whelan definitely isn’t on 40k. But even with them figures you’ve stated and the 2 million we paid for Whelan (which is probably more 1.2) the costing the club 16million is miles off.

08 Jan 2018 18:14:52
Terrys signing on fee wouldn't be far off about 5 million and his agent would get about 3 million most definitely even the crap players get two million signing on. My friends the wolves gk carl Ikeme and he got 2 million signing on and his no where near the scale of terry. Also football manager researchers who are very rarely wrong have done the wages they know more than us both even sky use there researchers. These players drop down from the Premier League for God's sake there not on peanuts.

08 Jan 2018 18:00:44
Your welcome mate, only joking, and no malice meant.
Just love the banter.

08 Jan 2018 18:21:46
Wtw-if you walked into a team left by di matteo, who was the most senior player there? i think brucey tried with what was already there and wasn't convinced, so he brought in senior players for structure and backbone, now lucky is the team whose players all gel at the same time;ours didn't, but there again neither did a lot of other teams, so yes, you could say he's bought in players on big sheckles who maybe don't seem value for money, but the season still has a few twists and turns to go, so lambast him as much as you like, just don't slaughter the boys out there until the season is done, their experience may just be the thing that gets us over the line in the end;and by the way, i still say i'd take John Stead on a short-term contract, he could be our super-sub;chris fairclough style!

08 Jan 2018 19:10:48
Ed’s don’t suppose you know anything about signing on fees for a free transfer and typical agent fees? To me 5 mil signing on fee and agents getting 3 mil in a deal where there’s no transfer fee sounds like someone living on another planet guessing and guessing badly at that. Also Terry was on 50k a week at Chelsea in his last contract I’m sure of it, so surely dropping down a league he took a pay cut? And Whelan on 40k would be one of our best paid players? I remember Bruce saying last season when Gardner got his new contract that he was on considerably less than everyone else so the new deal put him in the same field as everyone else, so are they all on 40k? Surely we would have just failed ffp no matter how much the parachute payments were.

{Ed001's Note - every player is different mate. The agent gets a %age of the signing on fee usually when it is a free transfer. Though that can be a lot as the 'free' transfers usually end up costing as much as buying a player. Clubs will usually pay a higher wage to a player signed on a free. I would expect a 5mil signing fee to pay (usually) 20% to the agent, around 1mil. Terry was receiving much more than 50k on his Chelsea deal, over double that IIRC.}

08 Jan 2018 20:03:11
Cheers Ed. So terry would be getting 4million with his agent taking a mil, if his on 50k for the year that’s 2.6mil, Whelan taking 2 mil in transfer and 40k a week that’s 2.08mil. Overall their costing us 11.68mil for the year. So still quite short of the original 16million, WTW your right but Bruce has no excuse on the money front, managers have got teams promoted on much smaller budgets, however your maths is still a 5/ 10 and will be reviewed next term😉😂.

08 Jan 2018 20:17:18
I wasnt slatting anybody just saying his spent loads.

08 Jan 2018 20:27:40
I don't think I am that far off Chris at least give me a C plus? If we add everything up tho with all Bruces signings I bet its about 25 million.

08 Jan 2018 20:53:58
Ok you can take a C😂 yea hogan was close to 15, he did well with Hourihane and Lansbury but all together he must have spent 25-30.

06 Jan 2018 19:56:53
Good job that wasn't a league game otherwise they be after your head again Brucie and I'm waiting for thread number 29 to see what he has to say.

Agree1 Disagree0

07 Jan 2018 11:39:21
Not calling for his head yet but I do want to know why he has to play players out of position and make there life harder. Simple. Round pegs in round holes and attack press the ball work your asses off. Minimum.

07 Jan 2018 14:22:22
What's to disagree with.

05 Jan 2018 15:55:12
How many players do you think Aston Villa need in January to go up automatic? My view is Ulloa would be great and Naki wells I belive we need them both Davis is not good enough he don't score goals which is a main job of a striker plus Hogan is a crock you fart his out for 2 months gabby is a waste of time and who knows about Rhm his been a crock aswel so 2 is needed Apart from that we have a great team. Wheres the Amavi money gone anybody know?

Agree1 Disagree0

05 Jan 2018 17:04:22
I’d take Ulloa, Wells would be a bonus but Ulloa would be enough to get us up.

05 Jan 2018 17:15:06
I agree. and hear around here, that is likely to happen.

06 Jan 2018 17:16:51
There is no money. Loans only unless we ship out. Thor could be going but we won't get much there.

02 Jan 2018 11:39:20
If the rumours about Sam Johnson are right
Wouldn't you just sign him and take a smack on the wrist if the F.A
I am sure it would be a couple of million fine
Which is a drop in the ocean if we get back to the premier league.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Jan 2018 17:05:15
I’ve been thinking that about FFP, QPR spent whatever they want the year they went up and 2 years later got a tiny fine (I Think) so we might aswell break it by what 4mil to solve fill a position that’s been a problem for years, and with his age, if we tie him down to a lengthy deal we would be sorted for years! And if someone wanted to sign him he’s young English and be worth a shed load.

02 Jan 2018 22:00:34
£4 appears to be the price banded around by the media. Of corse, nobody knows his value, which I guess would be whatever a club is prepared to pay for him. Personally, I would estimate for a player of his potential, and the way he has played this season and most of last, that even £15 million would not be far off. If united have offered him a new contract, I can’t imagine they needed to tempt him by including a £4m release clause. My hope is that he stays at villa this season then signs permanently. My guess, is that he will do exactly that.

03 Jan 2018 08:21:03
They’ve only got a 1 year extension on his deal, that’s why it’s 4mil, because next season in January he’ll be free to sign terms with anyone and in the summer of 2019 he can leave for free. We seem to be good at targeting deals like this, we paid penny’s (in today’s market) for Hourihane, Lansbury and Bjarnsson, got JT on a free. If we pull this one of either this window or in the summer, for anything less than 7mil then we’ve done excellent again.

03 Jan 2018 11:28:30
According to Tony Xia, Sam Johnstone wants to play for Aston Villa, which is great. Tony Xia said that Johnstone is going nowhere, and that he will be a permanent player for us when we qualify for Premier League this season. The West Bromwich Albion rumour is not true.

03 Jan 2018 22:19:57
easy answer is go to sam see what he wants to do and if he really only wants to play for villa then he tells utd. they can't make him sign for another team and even if they accept a bid off west brom or whoever he can just say no to contract,

personally i think its all rubbish and just talk to force our hand into a bid.
