Aston Villa Review: Episode 172 - Steve talks to James Rushton

Sign in to follow this  


With Chris temporarily out of action, Aston Villa Review returns to ring in the end of the transfer window and assess the business we know about so far. Aston Villa's promotion hopes have faltered and they now face an uphill battle. At the very least, January has showed that there's work to be done and a long, long way to go.

This week, though, Steve is joined by 7500 to Holte's James Rushton to chew the fat over Villa's busy transfer window. Will shuffling the pack again work the miracle that's needed, or has this been done with an eye on next season instead? There are also two games this week with Steve Bruce's men travelling to Brentford and Nottingham Forest with an eye on a maximum six points.

    • So I would guess you’ve heard already but just in case you haven’t, it sounds like we can soon expect “Beast from the East 3 - Happy Easter Neil Warnock”. https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.joe.co.uk/amp/news/when-will-it-end-beast-from-the-east-mk-iii-bringing-white-easter-forecasters-warn-168549
    • I imagine the Serbia one with the Russia flag in the stripes will bring some controversy 
    • Puma really going the extra mile to make their jerseys something special for each team.    
    • I got accosted in Gunsan, South Korea by a Mormon. I listened to him politely and then he told me his name was 'Elder Trumpet'. I laughed heartily, directly in his face, wished him the best of luck and then crossed the road to get away from him. 
    • Well err yeah, he did get a little bit wayward towards the end there @snowychap  Tiger aside, I thought it was a good finish to a decent tournament. Shame  Stenson dropped off, but you could just tell Rory was back to being Rory.   I'm not 100% convinced he can't get 'fully' back, even if only for a couple of years @Michelsen  It's early days, but I don't think physicality is going to be the issue. I found this interview with Rory from Jan of this year and There's some interesting quotes from him. if his back holds up, I think it'll come down to whether can he mentally become the player he was again, rather than physically.  This was after a practice round with Woods back on Nov.    https://tinyurl.com/ybyyfa98  
    • They need to get rory in to it more, at the moment its the other 2 and him 
    • So how many teams are strapped or hampered by FFP right now, apart from us ?....open question?
    • I’d be amazed if we got as much as £8m for hogan - I’d say £4m more realistic .
    • Not so much fizzled but went OOB with his ball at 16 when he carted it left off the tee. Actually, I think his round hit the buffers when his tee shot on 14 came up short right after he'd just birdied three of the last four (and had shortened from 50/1 to 5/1).
