  5. Because people are believing any tweet, any rag, or any whisper…so far it’s just silly. If anything happens then worth discussing but literally nothing has happened. The best one rag said was Purslow and Txiki had a quick chat, which seemed to contradict subsequent info from more reputable sources like Percy and Fab who said no discussions. We literally have nothing. Does Pep like Jack? Yes. Would Man City love Jack? Yes the rumours suggest that Would Jack like to win big trophies? Yes Does Jack really admire KDB and Pep? Yes Those seem to be the only facts related to a positive transaction that we know about. Nothing else has happened and may never happen yet everything has blew up in a whirlwind of fake truths. Could Jack leave anyway? Of course but there are so many barriers for it to happen it’s very unlikely. So am I sure he’s staying this summer? 100% because of those barriers mainly from Villa side but Man City also have their own barriers as well. It’s just not going to happen. But the offence is not because it’s not going to happen, it’s because every time there is a new rag tweet or something some people have a meltdown. One spotty nosed kid placed an article on a rag website yesterday saying the deal was already done for 88m and some people had a meltdown. Until something of even small step or consequence happens people need to calm down. Nothing at all has happened yet. Man City have already bid 100m for Kane yet done nothing for Grealish but for some reason Grealish is the main story. Bizarre.

  7. It comes down to this: Arsenal still want to bring in a "better" number 10 to start ahead of ESR while he continues to develop. He wants to be paid the same or about the same as Saka, who is an established 1st team player and England International, but paying him what he's asking for will upend their wage structure by paying starting wages for someone they only see as a bench player for the immediate future. He also knows that he probably won't get as many minutes at Arsenal this season as he got last year, especially if they bring in another number 10. Then we come in... We offer to pay him what he wants and give him the opportunity to play most/all of our games this season. It won't upend our wage structure because we plan to keep him as a starter and grow with him over the next few years. In terms of challenging for silverware, we're clearly a team on the rise and an attractive proposition for any ambitious player, and from the outside looking in, we're probably on the same level as Arsenal are at the moment. The only unknown factor is he's a boyhood Arsenal fan and that may may play a part in his decision on whether to stay and play on the bench or leave and play more. Jack keeps deciding to stay at Villa because he sees the ownership team is matching his ambition for the club and wants to be a part of the project. ESR might not be getting the same warm and fuzzy feeling about Arsenal, especially after talking to Martinez about his situation...

  9. For a while I've been worried because Jack hasn't come out and denied all these rumours and declared his love for the Villa. But then I thought about it. Consider this: NOT doing that, keeping the pot bubbling, is in Jack's own interest: it strengthens his (and his agent's) hand in negotiations over a new contract at Villa. And remember, this is not the Doug Ellis era, it's not going to jeopardise the club, we're talking about billionaire owners. Even more importantly, the constant speculation keeps his name all over the papers and the internet. Which in turn raises his profile in world football and helps with all the Beckhamesque sponsorship stuff. And the beauty of that is that it's actually a good thing for Villa. The higher Jack's profile gets, the more Villa are seen as a club on the rise. We want him to be a target for other clubs - the bigger clubs the better - it makes keeping him seem like a major coup, and all adds to our attractiveness to other world-class players. It's a win-win. Of course, I could be wrong, but I'm starting to think that both parties (Villa and Jack) know exactly what they're doing. And they're playing a blinder.

  16. Sports I would be interested in watching: Javelin at Jeff - The bi-weekly throw a javelin at anyone called Jeff competition. Should be shown on channel 4 after 2am. The competition would be more edgy if its name was shortened to J@J. People would call it 'JAJ' but I think we're all ok with that. Sponsored by the French early internet/postal service Minitel. Cor! What a pie! - 11 men without any knowledge of baked goods are rated on how loud they shout at pies in small provinical bakeries. Could be streamed via YouTube. Although a £14.99pm villaTV style subscription on the Greggs website would work also. SingedBalls - A sport in which specially crafted leather testes are thrown onto a triangle of candles. If all 28 candles are put out with the balls then it's called a singe. Men with abritary knowledge of signwriting display the scores. A moderator can shout SingedBalls! if the candle manages to burn off the hair on each ball after the candle has been put out. FairyDance - Bottles of fairy liquid are put in the middle of a failing comprehensive's quadrant and each 'Foamer' has to dance to a 4 minute song around the bottle of fairy liquid. Points are awarded on intricacy and knowledge of Schwabian. 'Jiffers' is similar but different. A bit like rugby union/league. Panathanaikos Yoghurt - 22 men travel to various Greek ports and wrestle for the best yoghurt/fruit combination. Vegetables are presented on an ornate glass tray every 12 seconds by means of distraction and a binding contract with a Turkish glass company.

  18. After watching nearly every game of the Euro's so far.. i am yet to see a player that excites me or gets me off my seat as much as Bertie when i watch the Villa. Whatever your opinion on the guy, he was superb value for 17 million quid. cant wait to see him strutting around in Claret and Blue again next season!

  19. Just been on the Leicester forums. They were in meltdown. Said they want £150m for Maddison minimum. jamican_fox was very worried kiwifox calmed him down after running a few background checks on your profile. He’s calling you a spotty kid, and some other Dude says u need to masturbate more.

  21. Its like people don't want us to sign another striker. If Watkins picks up an injury, we're ****. We have no quality alternative. Wesley hasn't played in 18 months and Davis is no starter

  32. So it was my birthday about a month or so ago and instead of getting presents, wife instead just gets me vouchers so I can but music, which is great as I get to shop around and try and get bargains, randoms, unknowns etc. Whilst sometimes I grab vinyl I tend to find CDs are my go to and I can get the best bargains/volume of music. Anyway this time I managed to get 50 CDs in total from Amazon/Discogs/Music Magpie which has made for an interesting mix: Some of that leaves a little bit to be desired (mainly those that were really dirt cheap), but nice to get a few classics in there as well as some new stuff as well. I am sure there was some reasoning behind them all... Anyway, the full list is below:

  34. I think the game at the moment is the "Big 6" are looking at the Villa and are getting quite worried. I suspect they will try and pick us apart, take our best players and make sure we are snuffed out as a problem for them in the Prem. Arsenail and spurzz especially worried IMO, as we have the money now. Probably one of the worst times was when Yorke went, we just couldn't compete, different now though I hope.
