  1. Hi all you villains Just thought I'd give you my thoughts on the imminent transfer of our most gifted player into your ranks. Conor has been the best signing we have made in decades when we pinched him from Plymouth. His vision is superb, his attitude immense (if you can get the video of the Leeds match in full you will see him launching into a team mate who sold him short, I kid you not his neck veins are half an inch thick in his rant.) He does not suffer fools and non performers. When we first got him he used that wand of a left foot to great effect, but not much els

  2. First off, apologies. This is going to be long, but I’m sure you’ll find it interesting. Last night I was very, very fortunate to represent VillaTalk at what Aston Villa described as “an exclusive training session” at Bodymoor Heath. A selection of media, supporter groups and websites including Vital Villa, avillafan, Heroes and Villains, and obviously VT, were asked to send someone who would be given full training kit and put through their paces by some of the strength and conditioning coaches at the club. There was also mention of “kit launch” in the invitation too. And who does

  4. Hi from Germany! I finally registered here. Villa is my favorite team in England, since like forever. I remember the times with Gabby, Young, Downing, Milner, Bent etc like it was Yesterday. Im glad the possible transfer from Milot finally brought me here and I will stay active here. If wanted I can write a summary about Milot and why He would be the perfect fit in your system.

  5. Hello from Bremen! Finally managed to come through to this thread so a big thank you to your admins. I've seen some here being confused why the people at the Werder forum seem so happy with the rumour linking you guys to a signing of our beloved #7 Milot "Rocket" Rashica, and the simple reason is that he wants to leave Bremen this summer, there was a rumor of him joining RB Leipzig for just under 20 million €. So apparently you guys are offering more money (something 33 million €) and you have the biiig advantage of not being RB Leipzig (that really is a big plus). We really do h

  6. Right then folks, I can confirm that Sanchez has arrived this afternoon and things although not done yet are looking good. I've stayed a bit quiet on this one because the name came out very early and the speculation has often been ahead of events, with some quite imaginative stuff doing the rounds in the media and elsewhere. But he has arrived, with his team of representatives It isn't done yet and shouldn't be taken for granted as its been a complicated one from the start, not least because he has more than one agent and a lot of hard works gone into getting it this far. But,

  7. So, another weekend has come and gone. A weekend that most people in the world won't have ny memory of in a few years time or so. But for 69 swedish Villans it will probably stay in their memories forever. Although, some will probably never remember some parts at all. But we've had a great time. For me it started on Wednesday. Flight to Manchester, with what I suspect was a couple of manure-fans going over to watch their game against barcelona. I think I know which one of us who was the happier later that night. Their I met a friend from the really grim north of Sweden, Gällivare which is

  10. I'm not suggesting we will by any means but just imagine if we went and broke our transfer record again now before the end of the window on one of Sarr/Edouard/Benrahma/Rachica.... I think we'd go into absolute meltdown. Even if we don't add another player though what a summer it has been considering all the added issues in the game/world at the moment. - We've improved in terms of recruitment staff - Added Craig Shakespear to the coaching team - Signed countless young players for the academy and recruited a number of additional staff for it - Improved all the ke

  13. Yeah so the time has come for me to hang up my VT boots. After extending my loan from after the man city game it is now time. Firstly would like to say thanks to everyone so far thats given Jack support on VT. Secondly is that I just beg people give Jack time. It took a while for him to get into the swing of things from u18,u21 and even being at notts it took him a while. The first team will be the same. People are right, including PL about putting too much pressure on young talented players as it can of course make or break them sometimes. And just finally I think Jacks doing brilliant

  14. Morning all, I'm a Hibs season ticket holder so thought I'd join your forum to give you an insight in to John McGinn and what to expect if you manager to sign him which I sincerely hope you do. John McGinn is probably the most loved Hibs player within the support and the club and has been since he joined 4 years ago. During this time we've seen him develop from a rough diamond with potential to a genuinely top quality midfielder who IMO should be Scotland's first choice midfielder right now. John's biggest attribute is his spirit, you get these players every so often like your G

  16. Hi, visiting KRC Genk and (biased) Samatta fan. Is Samatta good enough a striker for Villa and the Premier League? I think he will be sufficient for your needs. He isn't a clinical finisher, but I'm sure he'll score his goals. He's a fairly good allrounder. He's quick, a good header, pretty much two-footed. His biggest attribute is his work ethic. He's a very dynamic striker, in games he doesn't score or he isn't efficient, he's a constant threat for defenders. He always will do his defensive work and never hides in games. Last season he had a big amount in our league titel. With h

  18. Right, F*ck it. We agreed terms with the player weeks ago and tabled a bid with the club. Bremen have held out to see if anyone else came in.. Player told Werder/Baumann weeks ago to accept our offer. Now slipping in is A. They're pissed they letting him go for peanuts and trying to claw as much £££ from him whatever way they can in the transfer. B. They also sadly desperately need the money - and quickly, if they're to conduct any further business, all whilst keeping a player and still paying him whilst not playing and has already agreed personal terms with Aston Villa!

  19. Well that was an interesting evening. Genuinely not pissing about here. Felt fine until Tuesday despite wife showing symptoms over the weekend but mild dry throat & occasional cough appeared before relatively light chest pains & difficulty breathing kicked in. Actually seemed to improve a little by the time i woke up but cough & breathing worsened during the day to the point where i am struggling to take any sort of meaningful deep breath at all. Doesn't feel like i am about to collapse or anything but breathing isn't fun and having to stand up every few minutes to try and get some

  20. Jareth, I started to follow Villa, simply because of Tony. To be precise, because of him taking over Villa. Well, that was how it started, at least - now, I am well beyond that level as a Villa fan. I have been living overseas (from China) for many years, and like all of you, I am proud of my own country. Very often I came across some negative comments about my country (some do have grounds, some don't), and when that happened, I feel quite sad, and sometimes furious and helpless. I always want to prove a point, but sometime I actually think (and know) it is worthless to prove that p

  21. To be honest, I am not a fan of Villa club, at least not yet. I became interested in the villa’s take over by Tony Xia, not only because I am a Chinese who lives in the UK for many years and a football fan myself, but more importantly I am a long time supporter of Chinese football in general (20 plus years) and wish my home country can win world cup sometime in my life (quite ambitious I know lol). So I joined this forum and wanted to see how people react to the take over. I found, not surprisingly, most people don’t seem to have a clue of how business is run in China (why would you? J), or mo

  22. Absolutely, utterly delighted. I've really admired Smith's work for some time now, both at Walsall and Brentford and anyone who witnessed our games against the later in recent times should be the same. Some were taken in by the glamour of Henry but I firmly and have always firmly believed Smith is a far better suited appointment to where we are as a club. That has nothing to do with him being one of us. The way Smith approaches the game is what I've been desperate to see at VP for years even before the arrival of Bruce. I can't wait to see what he will do with Hogan! At las

  23. Firstly, apologies that it's taken me so long to get this to you - life is complicated! On 16th August, VillaTalk were invited to the Fans Consultation Group meeting with the club prior to the Huddersfield game. We're a difficult bunch to represent at these things, because unlike a lot of sites, there isn't a VillaTalk "way" - and although Limpid does all of the work, no one really owns the site in terms of its opinions, beliefs, thoughts and ideas - we're an anarcho-socialitst collective brothers and sisters or at least we're a group of people with a lot of different opinions; but,

  25. Thoughts from a dane on a dane. All of this 'he buys cheap and sells for a big profit' chatter needs to be taken into context. Copenhagen runs on a much, much bigger scale than the rest of the danish league. What is considered 'cheap' by english standards is more than 75% of the rest of the league can afford. It doesn't take away from the fact that Copenhagen regularly manages to sell for a profit, though. He's also had his fair shares of stinkers over the years, especially strikers. It's tough to really know just how much power he has had at Copenhagen with Ståle Solbakken being th

  29. I have Leukemia as well (different form). Petrov and I compared symptoms in a brief chat once. One thing I can assure you, his red blood count was dropping long before he had a diagnosis. That means his ability to move oxygen to his cells was decreasing. He had nothing left in the tank because he ran himself into the ground while his body was not moving oxygen to his muscles as efficiently as it should. Courage, Strength of will, and character. Exactly what we are missing now. Exactly what makes him a legend. I'm thrilled he's training. I will also say that going back into traini

  32. This is a call to arms for all Villa fans - young and old, big and small, rich and poor, negative and positive: WE NEED YOU! Everybody is hurting right now. Nobody wanted to see us slide this far and things undoubtedly look grim. But what are our options? Run away and die? Accept defeat and relegation with 11 games of football still to be played? Or do we, the fans, the lifeblood of this grand old football club, come together as one? Do we become resilient and unmoving in the face of this increasingly desperate situation? As Aston Villa fans, we've always done the latter - through the good d

  34. Hi lads, I am a long time AaB-fan and i have followed this thread about your signing of Helenius and thought i could contribute with a bit of knowledge about him. Helenius, just turned 22 years a month ago, has made 102 appearances for AaB scoring 40 goals. He has scored 14 goals in 32 games in the league in 11/12 and 16 in 33 games this season, being runner op for the top scorer title in the league both years, having missed only one league match during these two years. He tops the goals+assist list this year with 7 assist, taking his total to 23 (runner-up last year 14+7=21) - so he is no

  37. I’ve never claimed to be an ITK and I’m not going to start now but from time to time I've heard things from very reliable people, and as some of my posts in this thread have suggested I've heard a bit in relation to events today and leading to them. I received information only two days ago specifically mentioning the phrase “the enemy within” then I think it’s only fair to assume my friend (who knows one of the players very well) has fairly accurate information. I know everyone will have their own opinions and own theories behind events today but this what he had to say about what has
