Confirmed, Grabbon signs.




31 Jan 2018 18:06:25
Deal agreed for Grabban.
Season loan.


1.) 31 Jan 2018 18:37:55
12 goals in a poor Sunderland side, good addition, something different off the bench.

2.) 31 Jan 2018 19:02:15
I would go 442 now.

3.) 31 Jan 2018 19:23:39
I can’t find the deal done anywhere. are you sure?

4.) 31 Jan 2018 19:34:38
I have said deal agreed Flackie, on sky sports.

5.) 31 Jan 2018 19:52:52
It is listed at 16.36 at the transfer centre.

6.) 31 Jan 2018 20:05:22
Ive herd rumour defoe has been seen in birmingham this evening.

7.) 31 Jan 2018 20:50:10
Dave I see that now, thank you!
But I’m assuming it’s not gone through as not anywhere else?

8.) 31 Jan 2018 21:09:41
Everyone reported done earlier, Birmingham Mail, sky, Alan Nixon, but then BBC WM at the same time tweeted saying they’d been told the deal isn’t close to being done, weird one.

9.) 01 Feb 2018 09:14:21
Grabban looks a ok signing,
He is a journey man with so many clubs but we could be his team to get him to settle
Some reading up on him seems me to think he could have a attitude problem but we will wait and see on that,
But he scores goals at end of day and that's why we got him
No better time to start than against Burton on Saturday,



21 Nov 2017 16:54:59
Just a rumour,
Villa have been contacted by Shamrock Rovers for Kevin Toner.
Shamrock have held talks about a possible deal for the 21-year-old defender.
He is currently on a season-long loan with Stevenage.
And his contract is up at Villa Park at the end of the season.


1.) 21 Nov 2017 23:30:47
Barely makes the Stevenage team and was awful both loan spells he had last term, get rid.

2.) 22 Nov 2017 20:36:39
Could be left back cover though? Would like to see Borg given a try though




20 Apr 2017 23:17:39
Just heard Ugo Ehiogu has had suspected heart attack at spuds training ground today.


1.) 21 Apr 2017 09:43:08
RIP big man. Sad news.

2.) 21 Apr 2017 10:35:41
Holte Ender in the sky.

3.) 21 Apr 2017 10:36:35

4.) 21 Apr 2017 12:17:16
Was a loyal villain an great defender for us and probably should of represented his country more than 4 times. RIP big man.



31 Jan 2017 15:28:32
Scott Hogan agrees personal terms, medical passed, should be completed soon.

Reading all this crap about FFP and other restraints placed into footballs rules and regulations make you wonder where we are going.
Harry Kane has been valued at £176,000,000, shocking.
If these sort of transfers continue, football will be finished.
As I see it, the game will create a black hole and implode, then disappear up its own arse.


1.) 05 Jun 2018 15:50:47
Could not agree more Dave,
The games gone mad,

2.) 05 Jun 2018 16:07:07
How`s the wife Bob.

3.) 05 Jun 2018 16:19:41
Better Dave but still not right,
Thanks for asking mate!



01 Jun 2018 15:24:34
Surely one of the first things to do now Terry has gone, is to secure the signing of Abel Hernandez from Hull on a free. His contract is up next month, and he is considering a new contract offer that is on the table.
Terrys wages alone would probably fund such a move.
One out one in, should not affect ffp unless I am having a stupid day.


1.) 01 Jun 2018 16:01:03
I think hernadez was after 100 grand a week?
Not a chance we will pay that
Did not the Dr say something about his demands and said no chance,
Think our wage limit will be around the 20 grand a week now,
These type of players will now be a distant memory to us I'm afraid,

2.) 01 Jun 2018 18:00:17
Again Bob, we won`t know unless we try mate.
Yes I agree the deal fell through last time because of his wage demands, that was back then.
If his demands are the same again we move on, and it hasn't cost us a penny, got to be worth a punt.
We want people who will play for the club and the prospect of better money when promotion is achieved.

3.) 02 Jun 2018 08:50:02
Dave I understand what you are saying I would love him also but how the Dr is talking there will be no big wages paid to anyone,
I look at Richards who up is on 50 grand a week?
Add hogan/ McCormack and we are throwing money away on players who clearly not good enough,
Think 70% of our revenue is payed in wages that is a massive amount in the premiership but in the championship it's not substainable to continue,
We have to face it we are in deep brown stuff and bringing in quality players on good wages for now is not going to happen,



30 May 2018 13:53:28
Hi fella`s, I have been away for a few days trying to get over our disappointment.
But what I would like to say is how refreshing it is to see some old posters back on board, and a few new guys as well.
There are some great points being made again.


1.) 30 May 2018 17:54:25
Hi Villadave, it's a pleasure to get acquainted.



27 May 2018 11:08:34
WTW, Your comments of last week have done exactly what I said they would, bit you on the butt.
If you remember you said this time next week we will be in the premiership.
I don't know your age but I think you should be long enough in the tooth to realise that presumptions like that can make you look very limited in your football knowledge.
One minute you are saying we will be a premiership outfit, the next you want the managers head.


1.) 27 May 2018 11:35:14
Dave you can run round in circles with this bloke he has no idea at all he has embarrassed himself and then he wants a manager who is not even good enough he is a numnum. I ask you MRKNOWITALL or WALKTHEWALK why do you have so many aliases is it because you know you embarrass yourself you think ah ill change my name again. People like you make my blood boil god I'm getting wound up again.

2.) 27 May 2018 13:42:11
I was being optimistic because there's so much negativity on here. I only change my name once because my email was hacked. I only give my view I don't like Bruces football its to negative and most people agree with me. It proved it yesturday they went down to ten men and he wait till the 82 min to bring strikers on. Him big sam moyes tony pulis all borring as hell. defend hit it long and get teams on the break is the tactic everyweek why not just have ago? I don't care what people say I go to every game and that's my view.

3.) 27 May 2018 14:49:36
I think you will find kodja came on for elmo as soon as Fulham went down to 10 men. But we weren't good enough yesterday and got no luck. Big game like that and the ref was weak. But can't blame him for missing the stamp. We didn't create any chances. There was 1 real clear cut chance all game and that fell to Fulham which they took. Good luck to them next season. I personally think grealish will stay as I am sure he came out a few weeks ago saying so. Hard summer ahead but all we can't do. i stick together and support our great club UTV.

4.) 27 May 2018 19:25:20
Wtw, did u say "I was being optimistic because there's so much negativity on here"?

Well, if you were optimistic who was negative?



02 May 2018 18:08:58
Hi Ed, had problems getting on the site today, in fact could not get on at all.
Do you know of any reason why that should be.
I kept getting warnings about giving personal details.


{Ed001's Note - we are having some server issues dave. It is a number of sites that are having the same issues so we think we will have to move the sites on this server onto a new one.}

1.) 02 May 2018 18:38:57
Ok Ed, thank`s for that mate.
I had sweaty palms and the shakes when I could not get on.

{Ed001's Note - are you sure that wasn't the excuse you were using when your missus caught you watching porn.....again? No, honest love my palms are just sweaty and I have the shakes. No, really darling I just couldn't get onto the football site I use.}

2.) 02 May 2018 19:01:24
haha, Shush Ed, Shush.

{Ed001's Note - it's ok mate, we understand, we have all had the 'shakes' from time to time when the other half is looking away...nudge, nudge, wink, wink.}

I would not entirely dismiss this rumour at all.
John Terry could possibly be behind it, if true, that is only a thought.
Stanger things have happened, and I tend to agree with Kingy on this.
If true do the deal, it could be a good starting point, on the road back.

Yeh, read the same article nick, I have a feeling that grealish could be another agbonlahor, in the sense that unless some club comes in with a ridiculous offer for him and us, he may well stay put.
Man cty, Man utd, or a top foreign outfit might tempt.
I might be wrong but He is a home boy, so unless we plummet I think he will stay put.

Tell me about it Ken, I have been a campaigner for freedom of opinions on hear for ages.
And yes, I would also accept the man (Bruce) and his style of play if, and I say if, it kept us in the prem and in the hunt for honours.
But I just can`t see that happening somehow, still never say never.
I would hold my hand very high if I am wrong.

Ken, I have to agree with most of what you and Hoeful have said, and I think everyone on this thread have made some good points.
As you all know I have serious reservations about the ability Bruce has, not keen on his style of football at all, but that is for another day, I have never called for his head and he has earned his chance.
Time will tell, and fingers crossed for the playoffs.

So do I, who are the ones you think would step up Ken.

Villa fan.
Bruce is ok doing what he does and where he does it, in the championship with older sides.
He is very limited on the technical aspects of the game, so ends up playing one style of football and nothing more.
His pulling power as you call it, baring JT, pulls in older men who struggle over a long campaign, and who want a final swansong.
Bruce will never produce a young exciting side, that's how it is, it is a real shame because he is well liked, well respected, and a very nice guy.
This is only my opinion, so spare the slating.

Good in depth post Ely, like I said yesterday posted below, sell the lot and start again.
Painful yes, but we need rid of these jokers, they know nothing about football and the roots our great club have grown from.
Xia said he planed to invest in or buy football clubs in India, Spain, USA and Australia to create a new 'sports sector' within his portfolio.
My advice is to forget it, play with toys you understand, and you won`t break them.

Mate, that's all you will get only thoughts, people are just reading between the lines and guessing, we are not meant to understand it, it is all part of the game the big boys play.
I find it all a maze of cans and cant`s and does and don`ts.
Ffp could do with scrapping because it clearly has serious implications in its structure.
I might be wrong but I have not read anything on here that comes close to the real problems we are in, and the best way out of this mess.

Sell the lot, and start again.
The way things are going, we will be getting Gabby back to start the ball rolling.
What a mess, come clean and get on with it, get it sorted and then get out and do something you understand.

Blimey BK, Why O why does it take so long for the penny to drop.
I have been saying what you have just said for months.
Is there any coffee about LOL.
