Is McCormick out in Portugal?
If Bruce has anything about him he should bite the bullet and give him another chance if nobody comes in for him,
He is a proven goalscorer in the championship,
And if he does leave for another team in championship he will score goals I'm convinced of that,
Come on Bruce time to make up!

Agree0 Disagree5

I would play him, Bruce needs to get a grip he has no money and he's just writing players off. he's not even playing Hogan either, that's another 12 million, so that's 24 million not playing. If we had Dean Smith in charge i would be so more excited than this clown. so many people sacked but the biggest idiot stays.

Give it a bloody rest WTW.

08 Jul 2018 20:46:36
WTW you my friend are worse than Jeckyl and Hyde!

Iโ€™m ashamed and humiliated of villa but more the Dr at the moment, hence I have been rather quiet on here . however I am even more ashamed to be a villa fan knowing your are also . Prior to wrIting ๐Ÿ’ฉon here which contradicts you last post think about what your writing.

08 Jul 2018 20:47:41
Are the Villa the only team to have a bomb squad because it seems a perpetual thing with our club.
You do not see other clubs completely dismissing players that they don't fancy anymore to train with the reserves. Instead they seem to still get playing time from the bench thus keeping them in the shop window and retaining some sell on value.
You never know maybe one of our misfits comes good again this season after all look at Alan Hutton.

16 Jul 2018 12:07:59
He is not in Portugal - his front door has stuck with the heat:)

07 Jul 2018 11:26:53
Why is everybody moaning for we still have a strong Championship side plus some very good youth players. Sell Grealish and we will be fine. Even if he wanted to spend huge amounts of money he can't FFP says you can only spend what you bring in. Terry and all the loans let us down last season at wembley.

they didn't want it enough. i am glad they're gone. We have good youth and a strong team, get behind them. Nothing wrong with the owner, he's told us clear we can't just keep spending and spending without bringing anything in. business don't work like that. get a grip and buy a T shirt.

There is still a fine side there. What do we know:

1. Deadly Doug and Randy Lerner were excellent owners who ran the financial side of the club prudently. And those Villa fans who criticised Ellis but especially Lerner were utterly wrong.

2. The Dr does not want to sell - the loss of face issue will be very important to him. Important to understand that cultural dimension. It will explain a lot of what is going on.

3. No one has started due diligence, which is another clue that there is no imminent takeover underway. Not that the Dr looks like selling AVFC.

4. The Doc's plan to find a minority investor is flawed. There will be few investors willing to handover money without any sort of strategic control. Especially the sort of money that is needed.

5. Player sales will happen and the money received will flow into the club over 3-5 years, to allow the club to plan expenditure. Example: Grealish goes to Spurs for ยฃ25 million. That 25 million will be received by Villa over a 5 year period.

6. Bruce is likely to walk or at least, find an excuse to leave. He is a chequebook manager who likes spending money on transfers and wages. He will not be happy at having his budget cut. Have a look at what happened at Hull. I would expect Bruce to leave shortly before the start of the season, with some sort of "irreconciliable differences" relating to "broken promises".

7. Administratoin is not going to happen. AVFC, thanks to Ellis, has solid land ownership, which offers a contingent reserve.

8. AVFC has a sold fan base, which adds additional resiliance.

9. The club needs to stabilise its finances, through sound austerity measures. Once complete, the club will be able to benefit. This might take a few years to complete.

Not worried at all.

Terry/ snoddy/ grabban all played well and showed heart for our club.
'Nothing wrong with owner'
You high, for someone who said he has 500mil in bank we can't pay our bills on time. Yes ffp stops us buying players doesn't stop us paying bills. And he himself has said he looking for investment to help run the club.
Owner is a joker and turned club into a joke.

07 Jul 2018 13:25:40
Really not worried Dave?

07 Jul 2018 13:41:53
Have not got a problem with Bruce staying,
It's just the idea of him with our young players,
He will ruin them with his style of hoof -ball,
He likes the older experienced type of players with no sell on value,
This is what worries me this season
There is one thing which could be in our favour.
The expectation level will not be so high with most of our better players all leaving,
But mid-table is where I see them finishing.

08 Jul 2018 10:20:58
Bruce wouldn't set out to ruin our future however I wouldn't trust him 100% with it. My biggest concern is playing 4/ 5 of them each week, youth is great but there's a reason Bruce didn't play them last season and that is because they will get bullied. Everyone says the championship is the hardest league in the world and it is. We need to get the balance right jack got kick to pieces last season and these boys will not be able to handle it if we play 4/ 5 kids each week we will be mid table at the very best but more likely fighting relegation.

08 Jul 2018 13:36:17
You say our young players will get bullied!
I recall Davis coming into the side and he was very aggressive and held up the ball really well,
Then Bruce left him out altogether and we never saw him again,
He was a link to our midfield and things looked better,
Bruce is not a young players type of manager.
That is my only gripe about him plus his negative tactics,
I do hope he has learned by this for this coming season.

08 Jul 2018 14:13:47
I said if we played 4 or 5 youngsters we would get bullied and I stand by that we've got to get the balance right playing youngsters is the way forward I agree but in moderation 1/ 2 at a time. Our youngsters are talented there's no doubt about it but there's so much pressure at our club at the moment and i think it would be unfair to put that pressure on there shoulder and IMO they wouldn't handle it.

08 Jul 2018 14:51:08
We won't know if the young players can handle the pressure or not if Bruce does not play them,
I think 4 or 5 would hack it if I'm honest,
Plus they would give us the thing we missed last season pace in forward area's,
We will see what Bruce does about it.

08 Jul 2018 17:02:23
How do we know how good or bad our young players are if the manager doesn't play them an I'm not talking about 1 or 2 games here or there, I'm talking a good 20 games, u play them and they will get better yes they will have there bad days that's expected because there young, but Bruce will not play them anyway he doesn't like play youngsters an doesn't like playing attacking football, he likes his slow paced dinasaur tacticts, but we are stuck with him now because of our chairmen an anyway would u trust him to appoint another good manager I don't think so he'd probably appointed Maradona as our manager, both Bruce an rdm been bad appointments in my eyes.

07 Jul 2018 00:27:53
How are we ever going to get out of this we have a owner with no money an is hanging on too our club for what reason, how can we improve by selling every1 that's not progress an as a chairmen surely if he cared bout villa he'd sell up to sum1 that has a interest in buying us in some sort of shape.

I don't know what the teams going to look like but thank god we have our youth team players, next thing a bunch of them will be sold, there are dark times ahead again under this owner I feel sorry for Bruce now, what can he do really if we are honest, at a push play offs again, but then that's not guaranteed with other clubs spending an clubs thinking they can buy our players on the cheap, if only we set up differently against fulham an attacked from the start instead of being negative we might of won the game, for the blame lies with the dr he gave an sanctiond the spending by rdm, an plus he appointed rdm an Bruce an as chairmen it's important u get your management right an he failed twice.

so there's no excuses now he's just being greedy with the value of our club I've herd, I wish he'd sell as a reasonable price prob at 60/ 70mil aN go bck to China, he hasn't done anything good since being chairmen at our club.

Agree4 Disagree2

07 Jul 2018 14:36:38
I also wished he would sell but does not look like it now unless it was bull**** he was sprouting,
We are losing all the players with the most assists.
The top goalscorer. the best defenders,
Yet we have no money to replace these,
Pretty dire situation don't you think,

08 Jul 2018 04:11:24
Yeah it's awfull we are in the worst time in the club's history it sucks thank god england are doing good.

06 Jul 2018 21:46:57
Open letter from the Doc now on Villa site.
Club NOT up for sale, sticking by bruce, still not much clarity from him.

Agree1 Disagree1

06 Jul 2018 23:28:51
Bs I know different.

06 Jul 2018 23:47:54
What did you want to know mate i think the statements clear the clubs not up for sale but he would take investment if right for the club and we have over spent so we will have to let some players go and breed youth through. You can only spent what you generate so we got to work with FFP and there's no loans on the club so we are debt free. Beuce is the manager his not going anywhere. Its all simple you can't really ask for more all businesses have run its safe an make profit its a case of living to your means! We had our chance and blew it make john terry snograss johnstonw onouma tuzenbee graban wasnt good enough I won't be crying ovee them there not crying over us.

07 Jul 2018 22:13:24
@kingvilla "bs I know different"?
Its from Villa themselves, not press. Your not linked with the club in anyway apart from being a supporter.

Knowing better is funny. the only thing you've ever got right on this site is your login password!

08 Jul 2018 19:13:57
Lol ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘.

08 Jul 2018 19:25:55
Watch this space. Yes I've got a lot wrong. I agree. But the doc is also full of it. He's only a front man he's not our owner. He told us he or we was his world's then all his stuttering about saying he ment him and his people or mainly me really. Will take us to a champions league win within 5 years. He's been a total bs merchant since word go. I'm very confident we will have new owners. I've also been involved in quite a few company takeovers and there are quite a few tell tale signs.

06 Jul 2018 21:41:43
Well the dr not selling after all we are in trouble now, he is clueless wouldn't surpris me if we go in to administration now, disappointed with his comments.

Agree3 Disagree3

06 Jul 2018 16:16:20
I have heard from a decent source that adomah is in talks with another club,
A mate of mine who used to work at bodymoor,
Some of his rummors are correct,
Watch this space,

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jul 2018 20:03:23
I heard this rumour earlier in the week.
Talk is that he is in talks to return to Middlesbrough as a replacement for Adoma.
Should fetch good money after last season plus we get sell on payment agreed in Adoma transfer.
As Albert is nearly 30 this could be a good money spinner as long as either Green stays fit or decent loan signing comes in to fill void (Liv.

06 Jul 2018 20:04:32
Sorry should say Liverpool lad.

06 Jul 2018 16:01:18
Looking at the gallery of players in training in Portugal,
Did notice that grealish was not there,
Wonder if spurs are talking to him?

Agree1 Disagree0

06 Jul 2018 16:10:09
look again he is in the pics.

06 Jul 2018 16:12:13
Also Chester was not to be seen either,
Looks like he could be Brighton bound.

06 Jul 2018 16:31:28
I stand corrected if I missed them,
Was McCormick and Hogan there as Well?
My eyesight is getting worse that's for sure.

06 Jul 2018 16:49:07
Got to say except for Hutton everybody else did look as if they should be somewhere else.
Not many happy faces I have to say!

06 Jul 2018 17:28:35
I get that feeling sometimes at Villa Park, will probably get that feeling more this year.

06 Jul 2018 13:44:38
Thanks ed cheers.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jul 2018 13:08:51
Do you know anything about the takeover ed I know your busy so u might not respond, if any1 knows anything it might be u too give us fans a little bit of hope๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™.

{Ed002's Note - The club is for sale but until an offer is made that matches the owner's valuation due diligence will not start.}

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jul 2018 13:33:16
We just have to wait an be patient an hope for good news, do you think the dr will sell in your view .

{Ed002's Note - Yes, but I can't say when a suitable offer will be made.}

06 Jul 2018 13:33:56
I just don't think the dr wants to sell in my opinion,

06 Jul 2018 13:53:20
If he does sell I hope he doesn't sell just for the sake of it to get rid quick like Lerner did, if he cares bout villa he should sell to some1 who has good intentions an has the wealth to take us forward.

06 Jul 2018 13:31:46
Surely if 1 player Jack Grealish is worth 30 million, villa as a whole club should be getting 60 million? Does selling Grealish before a takeover is done devalue Aston Villa if he's worth 30 million?

06 Jul 2018 15:05:28
He's worth way more wtw he will be worth 60 or 70 mil in a few years if he plays like he can an stay clear of injuries.

06 Jul 2018 01:04:53
If Jack has to go for the good of the club, then that is what he must do . But why to Spurs? Levy must be one of the sneakiest, slimy people in football . The Sort that you count your fingers, after shaking his hand . Hopefully another club will come in, or better still a new owner and we don't need to sell . Onwards and Upwards Villa forever.

Agree1 Disagree0

06 Jul 2018 07:11:24
Point well made Davedean82,but there's a small bit in my mind that can't help thinking that levy is exactly the type of character we should have keeping US in order, hate meself for saying it, but that's showbiz!

06 Jul 2018 08:55:14
About levy,
Never liked him very sneaky in how he does things,
Would I have him at Villa?
You bet I would,
The type of chairman we have missed for far to long,
Very experienced man who knows how to run a club properly.
All the best to super jack if he ends up there,
It's so sad we have to sell the crown jewels to just survive,
I really do fear for my club now,
No signs of improvement anywhere within the club,

06 Jul 2018 06:42:07
Daniel Levy is the best chairman in the business mate reminds me how Doug Ellis used to be a proper man running a proper football club. If I was buying Grealish I would wait and buy him on deadline day as everyday goes buy Villa are closer to being bankrupt so why pay top whack for him?

At the end of the day, if we had this sort of chairman we wouldn't be in this mess. I love the Villa but since Ellis sold the club its not been ran the right way you need football people running it. I would love us to be ok but after sacking round selling any future transfer fees on just to cope with wages eventually. i am expecting to be deducted points unless he sells which he doesn't want to do.

Gutted to see these players go mate and its 1 deal where Grealish in years to come I don't doubt for 1 sec will be worth 100 million maybe go to Madrid with the right people round him he will go all the way. As for us unless Tony Xia sells we are in trouble and same as Randy Lerner its all our own fault. its us fans tho that really hurt owners, managers, players they move on we are the ones left with the mess.
