Some of you taking the pee owe walkies an apology, strong reliable sources suggest that Konsa was tested positive last week.


1.) 20 Dec 2020 19:03:47
The joke was the “doubt” comment, if he does have C.V. simple thought process from when he last played tells you he isn’t a doubt, he’s out. 😂

Who are these “strong reliable sources”? Why would the club attempt to hide it?

2.) 20 Dec 2020 20:14:25
I would think there would be repercussions if they did try and hide it.

3.) 20 Dec 2020 21:04:47
Definitely Mark!

4.) 20 Dec 2020 21:33:05
He was out simples, never in doubt.

5.) 20 Dec 2020 22:55:18
Its players discretion and if his been training with other players we prob didn't want the game call off because his been around them. House told me himself with his brother so everybody elses view doesn't bother me! So if you have genuine info maybe we shouldn't put it up because u just get called a liar well he didn't play i and hause was right!

6.) 21 Dec 2020 09:31:52
I don’t know if you struggle to read scottcaffu or you missed the post everyone was referring to. Fortunately as much as he tries WTW can’t change what he already posted, so I’ll c&p for you:

“ Konsa wasnt ill he had Cov19 he is a major doubt 4 tomz game because 10 day isolation. ”

Now if I need to break down to you why people would take the pee, I can, but surely you can work out on your own that if Konsa played against Wolves, he must have passed a CV test, if in the mean time he failed one, that would incur a minimum of 10 day isolation period, as the wolves game was less than 10 days ago, he is not a doubt, he is out completely.

So there was no ‘doubt’ in it, it’s a banter site, if someone says something silly people will have some light hearted fun with it. There’s no need to cry.

7.) 21 Dec 2020 17:53:51
No answer yet?

8.) 21 Dec 2020 18:46:47
Nope Daz. Smith said again this morning Ezri is ill but on the mend, and they didn’t want the cold weather last night to slow his recovery.

9.) 21 Dec 2020 20:54:52
I agree i don't mind the banter but I was definitely not lying about him having C.V. luckly 4 us our chip shop is in a rich area and many footy players come in not all Villa. Hutton was in last week as well with his very fit mrs. The info i get is correct.

Maybe doubt is a wrong word i just no he had C.V. hause didn't say when he tested positive just that he did his brother is a very funny chap. 1 thing i will say is the closeness between seems to be very gud the way they all talk about each other.

10.) 21 Dec 2020 23:34:03
Seems a bit odd that the club would be trying to keep something quiet but the players are down in the chippy blabbing about it, for me the believability is zero on that 1 walkies.

11.) 22 Dec 2020 15:52:59
You no nothing.

12.) 22 Dec 2020 18:09:03
*know 😂.



02 Oct 2020 22:09:02
King was absent tonight at the stadium of doom with a migraine, so he is obviously on the move just wonder where he is off to, kingy. WTW any ideas.


1.) 02 Oct 2020 22:21:59
Tottenham were supposedly front runners for King and they’ve just signed striker Carlos Vinicius from Benfica.
Will this clear the path for Villa?

2.) 02 Oct 2020 23:41:35
I think it might well do Mark, its certainly looking likely.

3.) 03 Oct 2020 22:40:29
I think Spurs are favourites. They have a lot less cover in the front 3 and seem to be more desperate to push a deal.
We gave enough interchangeable options and with Smiths preference to get goals from midfield and wide I think he'll be happy keeping Keinan as back up.

4.) 03 Oct 2020 22:44:05
Hadn't seen that they've signed Vinicius. Not convinced King would be looking to play second fiddle for us though.

5.) 05 Oct 2020 20:39:35
Torino’s low bid for King was rebuffed earlier today. However, I think Smith had moved on a while ago from this option. The Barkley deal seems to have shaped the manager’s thinking, particularly with Grealish remaining on the left flank.



13 Sep 2020 17:56:46
Hope I am wrong but my gut feeling is the sale of Jack is financing the latest three reported signings from Arsenal, Leon, Weder bremen, I think the friendly against man u yesterday was part of any deal, again hope I am a million miles off the mark, but the money has to come from somewhere, just ask the eds.


{Ed002's Note - The money can potentially come from selling him at the end of the season - but it does have to come from somewhere.}

1.) 13 Sep 2020 20:40:39
Last year it was tv money according to pursey purslow. whos to say we aren’t dipping into to that again the owners seem to be prepared to spend to get somewhere and make profit later when were in the champions league every year 😂 jacky isn't going anywhere soon 👊🏻.

2.) 13 Sep 2020 20:45:56
Utd won’t stump up the cash for jack, after buying donny, they have pogba Bruno and greenwood, jack not stupid he won’t go somewhere to warm the bench he can’t get picked ahead of greenwood for England, if he moves I don’t think it will b to United.

3.) 14 Sep 2020 00:34:06
Crossed my mind, scotcaffu.

The only thing making me feel otherwise is no midfield signings (so far) by Villa.

United seem worried. Raised expectations with the Sancho saga and need to save face. Mind you, £80M in the current climate is a lot to stump up for a single player.

I am surprised we have potentially spent what we have, but assume it is due to the easing off on FFP rules with the two year assessment that has led to us being so heavily active.

If I was being devil’s advocate, I suppose United could be offering a midfielder plus cash for Jackie boy. Would be very upset if the clown boy, Lingard, was part of any deal.

4.) 14 Sep 2020 10:35:28
Jacks gona sign a new deal jacks dad said last night.

5.) 14 Sep 2020 10:51:32
AJ I think Utd might go for Jack if the Sancho deal falls through. If that does happen then as I have said previously we need to take a leaf out of the Brentford book and play hard ball over the fee, so for me the only Utd player that I would accept, guy y and they are likely to release is Tuanzebe I would then try to secure someone like Barkley, Loftus Cheek, or Sigurdsson as a replacement or maybe even two of the above. The other thing is if we get to the last week of the window and nothing has happened then whether Utd offer us what we want they need to be told to bugger off because it won’t give us enough time to sort out replacements and integrate them into the first team squad. Interesting times!



06 Aug 2020 17:16:20
Just read 002 is a lady.

Does her obsession with FFP and slapping us boys down at every opportunity mean she is a Femme Fatale Poster.


{Ed002's Note - It is hardly an obsession with FFP, it is a simple statement of fact that AV have the opportunity to resolve their issue whilst many of the supporters are of the opinion that they can ignore FFP and that the owners will spend as much as they want.}

1.) 06 Aug 2020 18:34:25
Come on Ed, break down this wall with us, it feels like you are a bit harsh on us at times.
You have to admit mate, your strict approach to us over FFP needs a bit of humour at times, and I reckon you have a crafty smile to yourself over it, am I right 😁.

{Ed002's Note - I do have a smile Dave - but I think it may just be wind.}

2.) 06 Aug 2020 19:27:46
That`s better Ed, have some gripe water mate, with gin works wonders.

3.) 06 Aug 2020 19:57:46
Ed we are Aston Villa, "we spend what we want"

4.) 06 Aug 2020 20:25:59
Hahaha, love it scottie,

5.) 06 Aug 2020 23:06:24
Dave I'm on a mission to win Ed 002 round, I will try humour, science my financial incompetence and get to the point that ffp will never be mentioned on here ever again. You do the charm offensive and I'll do the wind up.

6.) 07 Aug 2020 11:34:29
Ok Scotty, I feel the deed is done mate, what about you.
I bet he is smiling as he is posting this. 😁.

{Ed002's Note - Much will depend on departures but a CB, an CM/AM/LW (if Grealish were to depart), and a S are key. A versatile DM/CM will also be required if Douglas Luiz leaves.
Possible notable departures:
Jack Grealish (CM/AM) right now the club are for now pricing him out of a move and the interest of Manchester United is drifting away.
Douglas Luiz (DM/CM) but Manchester City have the option to buy him back if Aston Villa put him up for sale - which I doubt they would
Carney Chukwuemeka (CM/AM) only a kiddie but another who might make an early breakthrough like Jude Bellingham has done at Birmingham. Aston Villa will do all they can to keep him and know that he has been watched in Under 18 games by scouts representing many Premier League teams and at least one German side. Aston Villa can expect an approach from both Manchester clubs, Leicester and Liverpool before long.
Wesley (S) will leave if an opportunity arises.
Scott Hogan (S) an upgrade is needed.

In terms of what the club has been looking at:
(CB) I am not aware of any targets and if Kortney Hause is available the issue could go away.
Baptiste Santamaria (DM) Angers will not look to let him leave on the cheap having rejected offers from Aston Villa and Bordeaux last summer so they have a price at around €20M - but critically they want a cash, or near all cash sale. Angers have shared Leicester, Aston Villa, Napoli, Atalanta, Villareal, Spurs, Fiorentina, Sevilla, Everton and West Ham have all sent scouts to watch him this season. Additionally, the interest of Lille and Lyon is well understood. He will certainly be sold this coming summer but there is a side issue that might make a move to England a little difficult – but I expect Spurs to push.
Christian Luyindama (DM/CB) Aston Villa could be priced out of the market for him. Wolves are keen and Galatasaray don't want to sell. Has just recovered from serious knee injury but it has not stopped interest of Everton.
John Swift (CM) Reading's CM player has been recommended to AV.
Morgan Sanson (CM) beyond very unlikely but an enquiry made by Aston Villa.
Ben Chrisene (CM) this should go ahead – a kiddie but a great deal is expected of him.
Ollie Watkins (S) Leeds and Aston Villa have declared and interest with Brentford – who may look to an auction if more interest arises – and it might with Crystal Palace.
Michy Batshuayi (S) AV asked about a loan but Chelsea want to sell - very unlikely.
Kelechi Iheanacho (S) Perhaps a wildcard option.
Alfredo Morelos (S) Although Rangers don't want to sell, there have been enquiries for Morelos from Aston Villa and Crystal Palace (way down their list). Very unlikely and I suspect heading to Lille.
Said Benrahma (LW/S/F) Brentford are looking for £25M with Palace, Spurs, Leicester, Aston Villa, Newcastle and West Ham showing an interest - the question will remain can he step up.
Serhou Guirassy (S) makes little sense but Aston Villa has taken a look as have West Ham, Brighton, Bournemouth, Rennes, Arsenal and Spurs who have had the player offered to them. Amiens want some of those nice English pounds and no English clubs will pay over the odds.
Vedat Muriqi (S) heading elsewhere, but looked at by AV.

7.) 07 Aug 2020 15:44:36
Thank you for that Ed, very comprehensive mate, and a lot to digest.
As being reported at the moment, it appears Wesley is drawing some interest at 13m, is there any substance to this Ed.
It seems a bit strange as he has not kicked a ball in anger since his knee injury.

{Ed002's Note - I suspect there is - there are a couple of sides (Lazio and Hertha Berlin) who think they can get more out of him.}

8.) 07 Aug 2020 16:14:44
Well maybe a couple more million and we should let him go.



22 Jun 2020 13:03:48
Slept on my frustration and this morning I still feel as disappointed and frustrated. I accept this is pretty typical now and we are going down with a whimper. I would imagine we will cash in on Jack mcginn and Heaton, who are the only three that will get in a premier league side. The rest are ready for the struggle at the top of the championship. The owners backed Smith and it didn't work out. There have been far more successful managers who have been sacked so I struggle to see how people are still backing him. The last two games have shown how predictable we are and I can't see anything changing. So we will be back where we deserve to be along with Norwich and Bournemouth. The only difference we have spent a fortune and got no return on the investment this equates to failure in any walk of life. I will renew my season ticket because Villa are in my blood, I just wish some of the over paid overrated bunch of players cared as much.


1.) 22 Jun 2020 16:49:25
And me Scotty, woke up with a bloody headache, the sky was full of rain, and the wife wanted me to clean the windows, inside of course.
That`s what being a Villa fan is mate.

Eds please don't censor this, why on earth can some on here can't accept a sensible debate without being personal. There are good fans that are passionate about our club that don't resort to insults to articulate their views. It's the same guy all the time and its not helping this site at all.


{Ed033's Note - Let the sensible debates begin. :)

1.) 04 Sep 2021 08:33:44
I can't see nothing written that's personal all I see is facts. Its called a forum for a reason.

2.) 04 Sep 2021 09:35:02
There isn’t anything personal Daz, Scott just starts to winge when cold hard facts are placed in front of him and he can’t answer them😂

He usually just goes quiet for a bit, now he wants to know why it’s acceptable for people to question him😂

So many good insightful posters have stopped coming on in the last 2 years, for a multitude of reasons, but I’ve no doubt constantly being told what they should and shouldn’t discuss, and what is and isn’t banter by the same people is one of the reasons. I thought you might have given up for a second Daz, good to see you still fighting the good fight😂👍

Bit of a rant on a Saturday morning but it seems to be the way of the world at the minute, social media/ the internet has created a generation of mouth pieces, but it also seems more and more often it’s got its grips into previous generation. Spineless weasels who say one thing one week then completely change opinion the next to suit who there talking to or who their trying to impress the next, the back bone of Riveta. No ones allowed to pull anyone up anymore on their BS, this site for example, it’s logged, everyone knows what people have said, and can evidence it, yet if you do to highlight how absolutely backwards and just argumentative for argumentative sake people are being, but if you do pull them up with facts and evidence, your the bad guy. Makes no sense. I gave up with trying last season for about 3 months, but I think this season, I’ve got time😉 I know some like to squirm out of thing they’ve said in the past and not be held accountable, but I’ll still be here, to remind everyone what you’ve said, let them be judge and jury and hopefully get a bit of normality back.

03 Sep 2021 14:52:40
Just reading the posts about Jack and the animosity from a selected few. Some questioning his character. I would just like to balance some of this. My sister has a severely disabled child and is a regular at Acorns Hospice, as many will know Aston Villa have a special relationship with Acorns and were a previous sponsor which the Villa did for free. Villa players regularly went to the Selly Oak hospice at Christmas. Jack especially had so much time for the kids at the hospital, mainly off camera, so the cynics can't say it was for the camera. I know first hand the countless times Jack has helped families with gifts, money and provided special memories for terminal children non of which were reported, it was just s nice guy giving to families in troubled times. Please balance what good people bring to others lives and not just what happens on a football field, that doesn't suit what effect any outcome may have that certain people don't like.


1.) 03 Sep 2021 15:58:33
It's all a bit distasteful to be honest. The BM are trying to stoke it up and people are reacting.
Move on, nothing to see.

2.) 03 Sep 2021 16:07:14
This lovely story has absolutely no relevance to what’s been said.

1. On the pitch he’s top 3 players I’ve ever seen at VP imo, I’ve never disputed this or anything else to do with him “what happens on a football field”.
2. I don’t believe I’ve ever seen anyone on here question Grealish’ work for charity or fans etc, it’s well known he went above and beyond, similar to Gabby.
3. I judge someone’s character on several things, what they say and what they do are two of them, when they don’t align it creates a pretty clear picture of their character and them as a person. This hasn’t served me too wrong up till now.

So as I’ve shown, that lovely story and some of the statements that follow have no relevance to what your trying to defend. Whether something happens that people like or do not like, the events, words spoken and actions leading up to this, is what creates the feeling around, whether that be a feeling of respect or as an opposite, the feeling of animosity.

Just as a side question, when Grealish was caught leaving the scene of an car accident last year, and the video showing his driving came out later, you along with many other, and rightly so, berated him, his character, his respect etc. When the video went out you also claimed you’d have him sold straight away etc. Now all of a sudden, you have the complete opposite opinion of his character, personality etc. Why the change? Why is it so often when the large majority agree on something do you nine times out of ten, very vocally disagree? Even as I’ve shown in this case, if it’s something that in the very recent history you had the same view?

I could tell you a true story about him which happened at the Barnt Green Inn when he was with Gabby Pertov and his driver/ minder but I'm sure that will come out in the wash he is a 1st class twax always has been always will be.

So all this i'm a do gooder dosnt pull the wool over my eyes his interview has belittled the club and his former team mates. Mark my words down now you will hear more and more coming out what he is really like off the pitch and not infront of GOOD PEOPLES EYES.

28 Aug 2021 23:51:10
Obviously it was going to be a difficult afternoon with key players missing, however we are a squad not eleven starters. We were disjointed and totally lacking of creativity. We shouldn't be making excuses, the midfield were pretty much non existent and we just didn't look like scoring. I thought Cash was again poor, Elghazi just hasn't got it, i don't totally agree with the negative comments about Targett but there are concerns around his all round play. Young struggled for most of the game and Buendia and Ings were both largely ineffective (good finish for the goal not much else) . Tuanzebe and Konsa were the two positives. We were hoping for a nine point start and we have four against sides we should be beating. If you are protecting Ollie don't play him, if he's ok and you are chasing a win, why on earth leave it till the last ten minutes to bring him on, complete waste of time. This performance is down to Smith and that's two out of three, just not good enough in my opinion and questions should be asked. We have a break and C.V. and injury issues should improve so let's see what happens,




25 Aug 2021 20:38:03
Report in Birmingham mail tonight says Villa Park ranked best in Europe based on new study,
Aston Villa's home stadium has come out on top in a survey of supporter satisfaction, .

This is down to our owners, pure class, we are pretty lucky to have these guys at the helm, long may it continue.
Four miles across the city they haven't even got a working stadium and god knows who their owners are.


1.) 25 Aug 2021 21:48:51
Dave, I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s still the hairdresser HaHa 👍😷😂😂😂.



25 Aug 2021 12:10:12
Everything that is said about the villa youngsters is absolutely bang on, footballers that are so comfortable on the ball and receiving the ball in tight areas. I watched all the players closely and some of senior players didn't look as comfortable on the ball as the younger players. It's been said many times on here, if they are good enough they are old enough, my concern is managers are often reluctant to be adventurous with blooding the kids too early, often hiding behind the fact they don't want to destroy their confidence too early, what i see is the opposite hungry skilful players that won't be fazed on the big stage. Throw them in the deep end Deano, save the club a fortune and reap the rewards, you will soon tell if they are ready. 15 minute cameos show nothing, give them a couple of starts.


1.) 25 Aug 2021 13:30:53
I do see where you're coming from there, but it's all very well fans thinking they're good enough and wanting them to be thrown in, but most of us aren't qualified coaches and don't see them day in, day out. I don't think Smith is stupid enough to have a 19 Yr old who's clearly better than his senior counterpart and not play him, as proven with Ramsey starting against Newcastle. Like most, I'm excited about the potential of some of these guys, but it's a gamble at best to think they should be replacing Ings, Buendia, McGinn, Watkins etc. I for one think Smith is going about it sensibly, using a mix of loans and gradual integration and then rewarding good performances with starts in the case of Ramsey. and hopefully one or two others as the season progresses.
If he were to give 4/ 5 19 year old a run of 5/ 10 games, we drop more points than we gain and finish 12th, the whole 'Smith has underachieved, get a new guy in' debate resurfaces.
Not saying you would mate, but we all know every point counts and the Smith out brigade from last season won't need much encouragement.

2.) 25 Aug 2021 13:56:48
100% agree DBS, we will see Chukwumeka and Philogene-Bidace get minutes this season but we have to trust the club and the plan that is in place for our academy players. We a producing some very talented young lads, let's trust that the club has a plan in place to manage their development and provide a path to the first team. Not all will succeed but the likes of Barry, Chukwumeka, Philogene-Bidace, Kessler and Aaron Ramsey look look like future first teamers if managed correctly. Exciting times!

Banter is great and doesn't require apologies, so if apologies are proffered banter is not applicable.

I have said many times there is no place for insults and it really does diminish what in most cases are relevant and valid opinions. So what about accepting views are personal and that should be taken in to account.

If we don't agree its right to balance things with an alternative opinion, but not using patronising and personal insults, this devalues a valid response.

Sadly i think i'm probably right, rather than hope i'm wrong Chris 😔.
