I see that it looks like Callum O Hare is going to seek pastures new to further his career which is a great shame in my opinion whilst he isn't anther Jack Grealish I think if we get relegated which I think is more likely than not unfortunately, then he could do us a decent job in the Championship particularly as we will in all likelihood have the heart ripped out of the team in midfield.

I do think that following on from the virus all clubs need to look at what business model they want to follow going forward. If as the CEO says that we want to develop our youth structures then we need the right manager and back room staff to start blooding some of them like Ramsey and Barry otherwise it's pointless.

Once we have identified the team and personally I would stick with Smith but ditch Terry then we need to back him and I don't just mean financially I mean the fans because I think it is probably going to take a while to sort us out, if we are honest we have been on a downward spiral since O'Neill left with the exception of a couple of bright spots on the slope!

If that means we spend a couple of years in the Championship whilst we get the infrastructure right then so be it if it means we stabilises the club then fine we don't want to be yoyoing back and forth between the Prem and the Championship like the Baggies did.

Callum O'hare is reportedly refusing to sign a new contract and therefore may well leave on a free, most likely to Coventry City.
You can hardly blame him given the limited opportunities he's had at the Villa.
So unfortunately it looks like Callum is going to join that long list of academy players who have slipped through the club's fingers.
If this does happen and we end up getting relegated and Coventry get promoted, it wouldn't surprise me if Callum comes back to haunt us next season.
I would however add, I am confident we will stay up, 🙏

Hi Mark.
I am hoping its all media rubbish mate, it could also be him playing hardball through influences, he knows he has done well at Coventry.
If it is true and we do lose him, I would have to question the integrity of our Owners, and Management.

Hi guys, hope everyone is keeping well and safe.
So the re-start will soon be upon us, and I must say that despite my reservations regarding the safety aspects, I am really looking forward to the games.
What do you think our chances of survival are then?

I think the break probably came at a good time for us. There was a look of resignation about the team, both during and after the last game before the lockdown against Leicester.

The team looked devoid of confidence, drive, ideas and belief and I can remember the despondent feeling amongst us all.
Hopefully though, the break will have provided the opportunity for reflection and some soul searching and fingers crossed they will return with a fresh desire and vigour.

I think with a fully fit John McGinn back in the ranks, it will be like having a new signing and that we will have every chance of survival.

I hear what your saying but we weren't exactly playing swashbuckling football before McGinn got injured.

Agree0 Disagree0

True, and even if McGinn hadn’t got injured RHLT, I doubt we would have been much higher in the table, but he is one of our better players and because of the way he plays, with energy and 100% determination, I’m thinking that this may well lift the team in terms of moral and belief for these remaining crucial games.

There’s no question there are lots of areas where we need to strengthen and improve but let’s get through this period first and hopefully some of those issues will be addressed before next season kicks off, hopefully as still a premier league team.
No doubt there will be plenty to discuss on this site regarding those issues.

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.

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.

Agree0 Disagree0

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.

AV v Sheffield Utd on June 17, their 1st match back.

If we stay up and get the reported £80mill asking price for Jack who do we think we could realistically bring in?
I think our starting lineup could look like this (Dunk being less likely with the owners strategy of younger players but best option within budget imo) .
Heaton
Guilbert Dunk Mings Targett
Phillips
Rashica Mcginn Benrahma
Samatta Wesley

Subs
Nyland
Konsa
Engels
Nakamba
Trezeguet
El Ghazi
Davis

Only one cm on bench as both starting wingers could slot into that central position.

We could stick with Konsa who has been decent and look at right back instead but I'm struggling to think of any great options available less than £20mill who are significant upgrades.

Not a bad line up however I would take a couple of players from Utd for Jack so I would ask for Axel and Chris Smalling.

I like you I know he is outside the age bracket but it gives us some premier league experience which we have been crying out for at the back, and ask for £55 million I would also ditch Wesley Engels Trezeguet Taylor and El Ghazi And I would look to bring in Harry Wilson, Benrahma Barkley Mitrovic and Batshuayi and go 4 4 2.

I am sure there are lots of other ways we could go and it’s great to indulge in a bit of Fatasy football, but I think we can all agree that whatever we do we need to do something different next season.

Agree0 Disagree0

I think Wesley will grow and he has shown at times that coming short to bring people into play is his strength. Wesley deeper with Samatta running the channels could work.

Utd wouldn't give Axel and Smalling for a combined £25mill valuation and Smalling is even worse than what we have imo.
I don't think we'd get enough for the players you listed to buy all of your wish list and ditching both wingers for Benrahma and Wilson would still leave us short in that department.

While his defensive work is poor you can't argue with the fact El Ghazi has won us points at the other end so should keep him for backup/ rotation.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 May 2020 14:25:50
Smalling available for £15 mill apparently he has had a decent season with Roma and he certainly isn’t as error strewn as Engels. In terms of cover for the wingers I would use Louie Barry and Green as cover after extending his contract . I don’t think el ghazi or tres does enough at either end of the pitch although tres works hard that isn’t enough in the prem imo. However that’s the beauty of this is it’s all about opinions.

With you on that John.

Barry isn't really a winger, he can play on the outside of a 3 at a push but he's a number 9 through and through.
I liked Green for us at times in the championship but it worries me he can't even get into a struggling Preston team now. May be a case of just not the right fit and his pace works better for our counter attacks but you'd have thought if he was that good they'd play him.

So intrested to hear your thoughts on nobody playing at home does it matter? Surely if your good at football it doesn't matter where you play right because there be no fans. There is 1 idea others is every home team knows how there pitch runs eg Villa park as a slight hill bit in it so does it matter its the same for everybody.

Has anybody heard the leaked audio of the bristol rovers manager. 3 go up nobody goes down 6 go down the season after. Its the real deal looks like we be safe. If we do stay up we need to learn from mistakes big clear out. Also what's peoples view on connor say jacks to good for Villa?

Hey walkies why don't you join in with some of the slightly more fun stuff on the banter site instead of just going on about how crap the Villa are? We get you're not happy but another squad rebuild would just leave us back at square 1 and take even more time to gel (again) that's if we're lucky enough to stay up. Who knows you may enjoy the banter side of things and be cheered up a bit 👍😁.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Apr 2020 22:49:47
Yeah, get yourself off the doom and gloomours site Walkies, it’s not good for your mental health mate. 👍.

So did you hear the audio or not lol. Surely good news for us!

Read the article but think the premier league will just operate in their own bubble and stuff the rest. The gravy train must keep a rolling 👎.

Yep listened to the audio walkies, thought it was on the button, and well dictated.
I agree with most of the audio.
"The premiership" well, Hmmm.

How long now b4 the season end French league just ended, what are the fa thinking apart from being greedy idiots, no1 knows how long this is going to take and players playing behind closed doors isn't really a good idea with players sweating and spitting on pitch they could still catch virus.

{Ed002's Note - It is not a matter for The FA to decide. The Premier League need to make a decision and right now there would like to get it completed but there remains a swell of clubs who want to draw a line across as there is no realistic end date in sight for the decision. It is due to be discussed again on Friday.}
