Reported villa interest in Todibo of nice, any thoughts?

Whackattack

Could we afford him. I thought we were in danger of falling foul of PSR rules. We have spent €117m and brought in €67m. If we were close before, surely being another €50m in debt won't help. Might be some truth in the Watkins and Konsa leaving rumours.


2.) 21 Jul 2024 22:37:21
We cleared psr by selling dougie 50mil, kellermann 20mil, tim irebhghen 10mil,


3.) 21 Jul 2024 22:38:24
Todibo is a beast whack would be an upgrade over carlos


4.) 21 Jul 2024 22:54:44
£117m spent is spread over 5 years or what ever where as the money brought in is off the balance straight away


5.) 21 Jul 2024 23:38:22
The thing with Villa is that we had to satisfy PSR by june 30th which ended that financial period after we achieved that we move into 24/25 period which is a whole new ball game, we have substantially increased income thanks to Chris Heck so there is that to consider as it will increase spending power, we also have champions league money and the increased income from those matches to include.
so it's difficult to say exactly how we sit, basically what we spend now we will have to balance the books by June 30th 2025 but we have that extra income as stated, Villa and Monchi will not buy players that we can't afford so whoever we get in we should be assured that the maths has already been done.

Reports suggest we lost 8.5 million of the luiz money to city for a sell on clause. ?‍♂️ here's hoping the players we got in the deal turn out to be gems or it will look like a poor deal.

You win some you lose some. Whilst we may have had to let Luiz go for less than we would have liked, financially we did very well on the Kellyman deal, and if we get £40 million plus for Duran I would say we are ahead of the curve. Add to that picking up Barkley for circa £5 million I would say overall we aren’t doing too badly.


2.) 02 Jul 2024 18:53:43
I wonder how much we're paying him. At Luton, he was on £30k per week so if we've got him for close to that, we've picked up a bargain.

How about Onana of Everton? I see a link about a champions league club interested in him, valued at 45 million

Whackattack

1.) 14 Jun 2024 22:23:55
Think the CL side is Arsenal. Better value to be had elsewhere.


2.) 15 Jun 2024 00:07:44
Who would you like to see coming in to replace Doug?


3.) 15 Jun 2024 10:25:30
If I am honest I think Barkley is lined up as Luiz replacement, but for me if I was looking to replace him I would look at one of the following Ndidi, Neves, or as a total rank outsider Sekhou Fofana who started life at Man City, up until last season was playing for Lens in Ligue 1 before moving to the Saudi Pro League, not a flashy player but in my view does the simple things and does them well.


4.) 15 Jun 2024 11:19:27
Gallagher, assuming that McKennie is coming as cover for Kamara

Question for the EDS, or indeed anyone with solid knowledge. am I right in thinking we need to come up with around 30-35 million in sales before the end of the month? Or is it higher? Or is it even known outside the club the exact figure?
I'm thinking back to last year with Forrest, they could of sold johnson earlier for a lower fee and avoided punishment but they held out and got as much as they could for him, if we were to do something similar I'm wondering what our punishment might be? Didn't Forrest only get docked 2 points? Was there a fine aswel? Is it worth losing 30-40 million selling luiz on the cheap? Would we be better off chancing our arm and see how it plays out? It would really bug me to see him going for half his value, it also surprises me that our owners would find themselves in such a pickle being so successful in their business's, I'm still expecting them to come out with a plan that they had to get over this hurdle

Whackattack

{Ed002's Note - I don't know the exact figure but it is something like that. Aston Villa will not be selling Luiz.} on the cheap


1.) 10 Jun 2024 13:02:17
According to Birmingham Live, the gap we need to plug is as you say circa £35 million, I think we may have already reduced that gap by £4 million through the Sanson sale, so if the rumours about Milan’s interest in Cash is true, or we can sell Carlos, or Digne before the end of June then we are almost there. I’d even be prepared to let Ramsey go albeit regrettably rather than let Luiz go for £50 million. My concern is more what happens next season if e keep spending in line with what we spent last year ie do we have to end up selling one of our stars year in year out unless we radically increase our revenue streams.

{Ed002's Note - The calcultion is not quite as simple as that as it depends on how Sanson' contract was dealt with in the accounts. Regardless, it will not have significantly reduced the figure.
Matty Cash (RB) I am aware of rumours about Milan but I think they are wide of the mark.
Diego Carlos (CB) Will be difficult to find a buyer for due to significant wages - but available.
Lucas Digne (LB) An option for the Middle East perhaps but may be difficult to sell.
Douglas Luiz (CM/DM) Juventus failed with an offer of a straight swap deal for Aston Villa's Douglas Luiz last summer and may well try again offering up McKenzie as part of the deal but I doubt that would suit Villa. Arsenal interest moved on to a another option but they are unlikely to sign him and if Partey and Jorginho move on, then interest will return - and I expect an offer from them. Spurs interest has likely moved on. Aston Villa will resist a sale. An absolute wildcard would be a return to Manchester City to replace KP, but they have a much preferred target they are already working on. Rumours of Milan interest is likely wide of the mark.}


2.) 10 Jun 2024 22:10:38
I think the sanson money was wiped out because of the extra 5 million add on that Torres cost us this year on account of us qualifying for the champions league, the money we got for archer last year will also take a hit because we had an obligation to buy him back because Sheffield got relegated


3.) 10 Jun 2024 22:15:12
I’ve seen a few figures banded about but I think there is probably a clue in the proposal that villa put forward to increase the amount of loss you could occur by 30 million, I would of thought more clubs would go for it especially with the amount of inflation over the last few years. I think 30 million is the magic number, I think if we could shift cash and either digne or Carlos we would be looking healthy. next year we will be helped by the champions league money as it does not come into effect until July


4.) 10 Jun 2024 23:14:48
Archer is not a hit for this season as the obligation is for 1st July.
I don't think the damage is as bad as being reported, contract renewals have pretty much all been at the 4-5 year mark to reduce the impact.
I think the more accurate reports are where we need to sell to buy rather than being forced to make a big sale. Barkley agreement has been deliberately delayed until July and there are no other concrete purchases on the immediate horizon for the same reason.
We will make use of some of the freed up investment from 3 years ago falling off and then it'll be funded by sales. Don't expect a £30m+ signing unless Ramsey, Doug or Watkins go (preferably Ramsey for me, only Luiz if we get £70m+) .
Smart shopping on the free transfers should be enough if the wages are right. The UEFA wage % is more of a problem than PSR.

Deal agreed for ferdi kadioglu if you can believe the press, RB from fenerbache

Whackattack

1.) 16 Apr 2024 21:43:51
Which specific press is claiming that?


2.) 17 Apr 2024 17:36:50
Looked at him, he can play either side, looks handy .


3.) 18 Apr 2024 13:37:06
Not sure DBS it was last week, it wasn’t sky.


4.) 18 Apr 2024 14:22:15
Some back tracking over whether we are interested in Kadioglu or not, seems like a number of premiership clubs are interested including Arsenal. We are also allegedly interested in Denzel Dumfries at Inter but he supposedly needs some convincing re the stature of the club which tells me he isn’t really interested so maybe we should move on and Ben Johnson from West Ham whose available on a free I have to say I struggle to understand that one he can’t get into West Ham first team so to my mind he isn’t an upgrade on Matty Cash but we will have to wait and see I guess.

How crucurella handball not a penalty and not even looked at by premier league VAR? Bringing their incompetence to the European stage.

So for the 8th season in a row united play their opening game at home, only team to ever have 8 I believe, they also play their last game at home.
while villa start and finish on the road?
How does it even work? Surely you should have either your first or last game on home soil to keep things fair. we're also on the road again for Boxing Day.

Whackattack

1.) 19 Jun 2024 07:13:14
For us it will be 4 in a row away and only 1 of the last 8 at home.
City congestion and policing plays a major role and it just seems like they choose consistency over fairness.
It can't actually be random and potentially have both Everton and Liverpool at home on the same day.

Same old, same old. It reminded me of the final against Italy, we were fine until the Serbs changed it at half time, they pushed the wing backs forward and we struggled to cope. Foden did nothing, he is better in the centre but I think we have the same issue we had with Lampard and Gerrard can we fit both into the team? Not sure. Substitutions were too late and I am not sure why Foden wasn’t hooked off. Still we won. But if that’s our best we won’t win anything.

Looks like it's 5 million for Barkley. what's your thoughts?

If it was a free, yes, £5M no

2.) 03 Jun 2024 20:23:46
I’d take him, even if it’s £5 million that’s nothing for a squad player in today’s market.


3.) 03 Jun 2024 20:30:37
5mil a bargain proven player its a snip

Barkley good squad player adds depth to our squad

I agree OneAV, couldn’t see Ramsey wanting to leave for spurs instead of playing champions league with his boyhood club, city, arsenal or Liverpool you could understand but spuds are pathetic

Whilst the rumour may be getting stronger it does not make it true, why pay 50 million for Onana if your interested is swapping 1 of your young stars with 2 season’s senior experience for a 28 year old soon to be out of contract plus a measly 20 million that you got for a kid who barely kicked a ball with the senior team, makes no football sense or business sense, rumours Diaby was sold for 50 million last week but still no medical, they are just rumours copied and pasted, I ain’t saying that a deal won’t happen but it won’t happen at that price, maybe if the throw in kulesevski it might make more sense.

No chance, lo Celso not worth 5 million in the last year of contract, Ramsey won’t leave for less than 50 million.

55 million plus add on’s is my guess. Going to be interesting this, I can’t see him not getting replaced with a real statement signing. exciting times, dani olmo is another I wouldn’t be surprised to see if it wasn’t Williams, Emery and Monchi plus champions league is a huge pull for Spanish talent.

Emery will improve him no doubt it’s just a matter of how much, we have a lot of games ahead of us this season, we are getting to the point of 2 very good players for every position which is where we want to be to stay in the top 4. writing could be on the wall for Ramsey now and looking like it would be a cash deal as we wouldn’t need Lo Celso.

If he goes anywhere it will be arsenal I’d say, his boyhood club who need a striker, if he went to arsenal they would have a good chance to win the league.
Couldn’t see him leaving for a struggling and unstable Chelsea side with no champions league to look forward to, I don’t think we would sell him unless it was ridiculous money, looks like Diaby is going so we won’t be stuck for money, interesting to see what’s in the pipeline to replace him or is biddace his replacement ?‍♂️

Yeh we paid less because of them getting relegated, I think there was a different figure if Sheffield had of stayed up and we wanted to buy him back. it seems like it was more of a loan than anything with Villa covering their ass in case archer set the league alight.

Great signing, just what we need in the center, big, strong, young, I don’t think he’s coming in to replace Doug’s output but him and kamara in the middle will be tough to play through. personally I think rogers is going to play a huge part in replacing Doug’s goals and assists, plus when we have to play the likes of city arsenal etc. we would have kamara, Onana, maginn, rogers and Barkley, that’s a physical midfield while still creative with maginn rogers and Barkley. I’m delighted with this one to be fair and a good price given his age, the squad numbers are bulking up nicely, sell a LB and buy a RB and a keeper and we are looking strong to compete on multiple fronts, looks like we are ok for depth up front if Duran stays, he has showed he can score goals, and if he go’s he will be replaced plus we have archer.

If he went to Saudi for 60 million I’d be happy enough, for me he’s worth 35-40 max right now, but I would of said the same about Bailey this time last year and now I think he’s probably worth 70, it’s a hard one to call, if he leaves it’s money in the bank and I think Philogene could easily match what Diaby done last year, if he stays and pushes on like Bailey done it would be awesome we would have 1 of the strongest attacks in Europe imo, but if he stays and goes missing for chunks of the season like last then his value will fall and we will struggle to get our money back out of him. 60 million could buy goncalves and he would be an upgrade. I guess it will all come down to what Emery thinks of him. he needs others to create space for him to flourish whereas Bailey can make that space for himself and as much as I’d like to see him stay and improve I don’t think he will in the premier league

True story allstar ??

For sure Dave, he’s being doing it all season, I said to my youngster when he came on “I bet he scores” I have no love for the England team but over the 90 mins I have to admit they deserved it, they had the better moments in the game, give Southgate his dues this time, he went for the win with positive changes, Koeman was settling for extra time, in my opinion bravery is rewarded more so than not.

Ollie deserved his chance and he sure took it I am delighted for him, I worried a little for him in the last few games of the season he just couldn’t seem to grab that illustrious 20th league goal but this will give him huge confidence and what’s good for villa makes me happy ?
Saka is still a diving little cheat though ??
