The good Dr is tweeting that a signing is expected,


1.) 21 Jan 2018 14:04:18
We have a number 24 (Tommy Elphick ), so maybe we are selling!

2.) 21 Jan 2018 14:08:14

Could well be!

3.) 21 Jan 2018 15:26:16
Tuanzebe maybe.



12 Jan 2018 18:24:09
Perhaps he ain't coming after all!

My mistake welcome axel!


1.) 12 Jan 2018 18:29:29
Probably won’t happen till the end of the window.



12 Jan 2018 16:26:49
Welcome Alex?




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


1.) 12 Jan 2018 12:46:00
Not better than Ohare.

2.) 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,

3.) 12 Jan 2018 14:27:14
No ones better than O’hare.

4.) 12 Jan 2018 14:45:09

If this axel tuanzebe is the player coming in it poses a question!
The special one has said he wants to see him play on a regular basis so where do villa play him?
He is a c/ back so Terry and Chester will not be dropped I imagine,
And I can't see him on the bench if I'm honest,
Will he play midfield?
Or full/ back,
Strange signing for me as he is highly rated by the special one and he needs game time
Any thoughts!


1.) 21 Jan 2018 15:28:04
Guessing it was all lined up before we saw how good Bjarnason was infront of the back line, although when we come up against a more physical midfield we may need someone bigger than Bjarnson.

2.) 23 Jan 2018 04:01:19
Top clubs loaning out up-and-coming players are now looking for guaranteed game-time. Sebian Scouser, Grujic, has gone to Cardiff on loan, and they are subject to financial penalties if they don’t play him. They have 19 games left and have to play him for a minimum of 14. Same could apply to Tuanzebe, assuming he is still in the frame. Same wouldn’t apply to Ulloa as he is deemed to be ‘out-of-favour’ and Leicester would be looking for a permanent move – though it looks like he might be going to Palace anyway.



21 Jan 2018 09:39:04
Seems ulloa set to go to palace now.
Next one please!




13 Jan 2018 12:45:53
Prediction time,
1-0 win villa,
Plus hoping Sunderland, Norwich, and blue-noses do us a big favour,
Then that will be a super day allround,


1.) 13 Jan 2018 13:48:55
Sunderland ain't going to help us today.

2.) 13 Jan 2018 14:16:51
Dont have a prediction for this one, its always close with forest. just hope that mills dosnt spangle any of our players. He has a tendency to go over the top with his tacckles. His match play leaves a lot to be desired. On the other hand he was the reason we beat forest last time round. Hoping for a win but you never know with this fixture. Forest will be in buoyant mood after the way they performed against arsenal plus add to that new manager syndrome. Think it will be a cracking game. UTV.



09 Jan 2018 09:29:20
Don't know how you fans think but listening to the fa cup draw made me feel sad that we threw our chance once again with that poor non- performance on Saturday,
This happens to villa to often and was it really a shock defeat?
No in my opinion,
We are the butt of many jokes about our fa and leaque cup performances against lower opposition.


1.) 09 Jan 2018 12:08:47
Not really the FA Cup has lost its sex appeal now it's no good dwelling in the past the past is the past get over it move forward.

2.) 09 Jan 2018 12:33:20
So what can we look forward to?
If we go into the prem we will just struggle and get beat most weeks all over again,
Do you just want that;
I would love to see us compete in cup competitions,
All you hear from the big teams is champions leaque is the only thing they want,
For me the champions leaque is a joke where you can lose 2 games and still be the champions,
And if you come 3rd in the table in early stages you get a another chance as you are then put in the euro cup,
But for me the fa cup is the biggest and best in world football and the big boys have spoiled it all,

3.) 09 Jan 2018 15:23:53
That's a very good point bob, I agree 100% mate.
FA cup was a day for everyone in days gone bye, lose your out, win your through.
What a football romance it was, its a shame and travesty the way the cup has been devalued, it has all been caused by money and foreign players who don't understand the tradition the FA cup has/ had.
My reasoning is simple, if you win a cup then get relegated the season has not been in vain.
Modern day football has developed a very unpleasant aroma.
Everyone is afraid to lose.

4.) 09 Jan 2018 16:24:08
100% correct Dave.
I used to love the fa cup seeing the big build up thoughout the day.

5.) 09 Jan 2018 19:46:16
Love the cup competitions aswell, get up, get settled in the prem, back to the position we was in under MON where we knew we wouldn’t be in trouble but equally knew we wasn’t going to challenge for the league. Then start going for it in both cups, first team every round, we got to the final with an average team struggling to stay in the league not too long ago, with a decent team we have a decent chance, because each round is a one off and on the day anyone can beat anyone. Then win and your in Europe, you attract better players, get the name/ brand out there and can then spend more on transfers, that’s when you can push on improve the team and start challenging for bigger things.

6.) 09 Jan 2018 20:01:32
Been a while but must now comment. The FA Cup is a trophy we should be playing all out for. If we're good enough the promotion will take care of itself. The cup is the icing we all enjoy. I've backed Bruce from day one but I don't agree with his tactics on this. I could understand if we were away to man city but at home to a league one side we should be looking to get it done by half time then bring the kids on.

7.) 09 Jan 2018 20:42:35
Totally disagree.
The fa cup is a luxury, yes I like everyone else love it, and I’m gutted we are out of it, I’m gutted we are out the league cup, but they are not important. They won’t be until we are back in prem.
Grab some realism. A cup run is great, but it is more of a demand, it’s more pressure, it’s more chance of injury, it’s more fixtures. Everything villa and the players do not need at the moment.

I hope every other team we are in competition with a great cup run. Leaves us fresh and ready to come under the radar.
If you want a cup, pray for the play off.
Personally I think automatic would be better.

Spot on flackie.

9.) 10 Jan 2018 01:25:20
On the button guvnor.

10.) 10 Jan 2018 15:48:08
Flackie, that's exactly the attitude that has ruined the FA Cup. I say if teams like us can't be bothered with it then scrap it altogether, What happens when we're back in the prem, do we not bother because it could interrupt our fight for survival or champions league position. All it's about now is money and the FA Cup obviously isn't worth it unless you're a non league team drawn away to a top prem club.

11.) 10 Jan 2018 18:02:59
You are right, I’m sorry, we should not worry about the league, about getting into the prem, or infant the competition that last the whole season, we should try for a cup.
Put all our eggs in that basket. in a knock out competition?

A cup is the cream that is on the top of the cake, it’s great to win one, have a run in one, but it is the league that makes, and breaks the club.

‘That’s the attitude that ruined the FA CUP’. Your words!

I say you are so wrong. Where is the romance of the cup, about the underdog coming good, the giant killing? Ask the pboro fans if the FA CUP is ruined!

Aston Villa need to be in the top division.
Full stop.
Every thing else is a distraction, until we are back in that league, whether this year, or if it takes years, I for one hope we are knocked out in the first round every year, so we can concentrate on what matters.

The cups are great when you are safe in your surroundings, can’t go up, can’t go down. For every other club, it’s a gamble, a gamble with injuries, fixture congestion, tiredness even a gamble as a distraction.

It’s nothing about money, it’s about common sense.
Premier league, or a cup run.

Ask the Ed’s if they can do a poll? Let’s see where people stand.

12.) 10 Jan 2018 19:56:49
Unfortunately I agree with the Flacksters sentiment.

Brucey will only be judged on whether we get promoted or not. If we don't get promoted no one will look back and say "well at least we had a good cup run, give him another season", the call for him to go will be loud and long.

The Bristol C manager hasn't endeared himself to me after some of the comments after last night and after we smashed them, but at the end of the season, making the play offs (they won't get promoted) and a very decent cup run will be a major over achievement and they'll probably have an open top bus tour.

That's the difference a cup run makes to small clubs and big clubs with real expectations.

13.) 10 Jan 2018 20:28:07
Ok flackie we will agree to disagree. I just hate losing to infrerior clubs by putting out a half baked team. Even man city only made four changes from their previous prem game, that's all I'm asking for.



08 Jan 2018 16:36:56
Karanka about to be the next forest boss,
Just in time for villa!


1.) 08 Jan 2018 23:03:45
So was Pulls at Boro when we played them?

2.) 09 Jan 2018 08:17:11

3.) 09 Jan 2018 11:41:35
Thank you taking a bow.

From what I have seen in press mcorkmark can't sign for another club in England,
Going by these 3 clubs rules in a year,
He can go to the states who are interested in him,
So I can't see this Leeds rummor to be true,

Great result and good first half performance
Worried about the number of balls that went into our area and Barnsley won most in the air,
But pleased about Hogan doing his stuff and a special praise for Thor,
He was really good and Bruce has finally found out where to play him,
Grealish ran the game,
We are looking the business now let's keep it up,

2-1 villa tomorrow,
Hogan to score along with grealish
Will not be easy Barnsley in a relegation fight,
But we must not drop points and hoping for a derby draw tonight
Against Bristol city,
