  1. 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. Best Lukas

  2. 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

  3. 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

  5. Everton fan here - thank you, thank you, thank you! Good luck for the rest of the season (apart from against us lol). Seriously though, you looked really good & Ollie Watkins looks a great signing. Everton & Villa for the title race!

  6. 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!

  7. 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

  8. 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

  12. My dad has amazingly beaten it. He's 66 next week, he has throat cancer and he has existing heart problems (stent etc). We were all bricking it that if he got it he'd be done for. A few weeks ago he had a temperature of 39.1 but when the paramedics arrived, they said they weren't concerned, and that it seemed more to do with his heart (high heart-rate too) than Covid. They took him to hospital anyway, and he stayed there for 4 days until his temperature went down. Other than a high temperature and generally feeling lethargic, he didn't really have any serious symptoms. Test results c

  13. Thanks for the kind words. Here a short summary about Milot. (sorry for bad language - I dont write or speak in English often and its early in the morning) Player profile: Milot transfered on Deadline Day in January for a transfer fee ~7m€ from Vitesse to Werder. At first he had problems adopting to the new league and playing a bigger role in the team. But after a few months, you why we invested so much money in him. First: he is explosive! On his first steps, there a few players who are quicker. He is also very fast, but not as fast as quick. He shoots and passes with his right fo

  16. Hi folks Friendly Arsenal fan here! Just dropped by to tell you just how good a keeper you’re getting in Emi Martinez. (Can confirm the deal is 100% done!) We’re gutted to be losing him but we need to sell to raise funds for signings - we can’t afford to have two £20m+ rated keepers. One thing worth mentioning - he’s the best keeper I’ve ever seen in terms of claiming crosses. It’s like he’s got superglue on his gloves! Wishing you all the best for the season ahead!

  17. Dad passed yesterday. Mum slept through her symptoms and seems ok so far. I was allowed to see them, the first time since April. Stayed with him overnight on Thursday. Got to say goodbye. There's been tears, but it's easier to be philosophical about Dad than it was my Sister. 3 others died from Covid in their residential place. Another home in Worcester lost 14 after an outbreak.

  18. I've been thinking about this a lot lately, especially after browsing Villa twitter. I know that place is an absolute cesspool, but there's a running theme of our fans getting spoilt by our good form this season. I'm seeing it all over; talk of some players not being good enough, despite us residing in the top six half a season after avoiding the drop by one point. People saying anything less than an EL spot this season would be a failure, considering the general consensus originally was an upper bottom half finish with no relegation concerns would be a successful season. We're in da

  19. Thanks for all the best wishes guys. I really appreciate it and it's uplifting to see such warmth from a load of people I have never met at a time when I'm isolated in a bedroom. My 6 year old son keeps popping up the stairs to ask how I am and if it's gone yet. It's a grounding experience.

  20. I've been told today that I've got it. I'm really ill and weak. It all started around 7pm last night when I suddenly became colder than I've ever felt in my life. I was shivering and shaking uncontrollably and no matter how many layers I put on, together with the duvet and blankets, I simply couldn't get warm. From 7pm until just after 11pm last night I was like this and lost all my energy. I went to bed last night and just couldn't sleep because of the aching and pains all over me. I took paracetamol but they did nothing. Then, halfway through the night, it flipped from feeling col

A lad from Bahia state in Brazil, which is notoriously impoverished, who lost his Dad aged 9, sorted screws in a factory whilst going through trials at his first club, came to England and was severely injured when showing some signs of early promise and is still only 24.

  23. I'm more proud of the lads tonight than I was against Liverpool. Luck was on our side that night, and full credit to the lads for grasping it, but tonight, it went against us, and we dug deep and **** spanked them. Sixth with a game in hand. Joint best defence in the league. Joint 3rd most goals in the league. Fantastic. Chuffed that Watkins got another. Martinez was solid again. And McGinn was back to form which is a relief. Jack for that last goal...He is just the best talent I've seen in C&B in my lifetime, bar none. He is truly world class.

  26. I thought we were fantastic in the second half, the effort the coaches are getting out of these players is amazing. The fullbacks were really impressive, Ollie ran the line really well, Grealish was superb and did a lot of work defensively, and there were moments of real quality and class all over the place. McGinn won't get much attention but he worked his little Scottish stones off and Hause was massively impressive at the back. I thought Palace were horrible, Zaha is vile - he's managed to get Mings into a battle with his own ego and that's always trouble - the big Alpha really struggl

  32. Well, I couldn't conceive of a way to make The Cider House a viable business pursuit anymore. I'm closing the bar. The restaurant industry in Maine is dependent on brisk summer sales to carry us over the winter. This is not happening, not this summer, anyway. And maybe next, who the hell knows. I've worked in restaurants since 1985, and opening my own little bar was a dream I had for years. I was able to achieve it, and Covid has come to take it away. I have my health, and that's the most important thing. Now it's back to square one, but with business loan debt of around 30K USD an
