  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.

  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. 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

  6. 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!

  7. 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!

  8. 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

  9. 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. What a finish, the noise was unbelievable, my arms hurt, my voice is done for the week. It was incredible - joy, relief, the bursting of frustration, it was pure, justified, passionate noise - it fills your lungs and your ears and your chest and your heart. I love coming out of Villa Park at times like that, people bound, they smile, they shout, they sing in the street - it's a collective energy, something that's in all of you all at once. I love this f***ing game. We won that on effort, we haven't got a striker, we occasionally looked lost without one, but we've got heart and legs and th

  14. 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

  15. Didn't know where to put this, so I started a new topic. I don't know if it's the case, but I get the feeling that over the last years and especially the last months there have been a level of criticism towards our players that I haven't been used to on here. I started supporting Villa as a kid in the early 90' and more or less idolised the players, having posters on the wall etc. It didn't come to my mind to criticise the players, they were my heros. In the good old mailing list I don't remember having the level of criticism towards the players that I see on here nowadays. I don't r

  17. 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!

  18. This thread is indicative of the problem football has on the whole - impatience. We're not just trying to build a team of football players. We nearly went out of existence in July 2018, 18 months ago. I don't think people remember back that far. It's mental - we shouldn't even be in the Premier League this year. We've had to rebuild an entire infrastructure, from top to bottom, whilst being able to pick 11 players to go and play football at a professional level - competitively. Dean Smith has been with us for 15 months, Suso has been here for 15 months, Nassef, Wes and Christia

  19. I love this football club, I love Villa Park, the lights, the noise, us. I love what the game does to me, how it makes me feel, that it makes me feel, how it brings me together with the people I love and creates memories that don't fade. I love the cold, the smoke bombs, the passion, the songs, this team, all of it, the bad times and the way they make the good times so good, the times where you wonder why you bother and the times like tonight when you just know it's perfect and always will be, I love Jack Grealish, I love late goals, I love this football club. Aston Villa FC. I love it. A

  20. 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.

  21. 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

Observations: We go to Wembley an awful lot because we’re fkn massif Nyland was a fkn boss again Jack Grealish pisses all over Maddison Elmo cross was hella underrated Trezeguet may actually learn confidence tonight Samatta knows how to be in the right place Pitch Invasion was bit OTT but we’re a crazy bunch who love our club Purslow loved slapping Grealish arse a bit too much Brendan Rodgers last 2 cup exits in 5 years have come at the hands of the almighty Leicester are an excellent side but we’ve proved we’re good enough for the

  24. If you hate Smith: shit performance, we invited the pressure in the second half and got punished for his tactical naivety. If you have a modicum of realism: an absolutely superb performance with no recognised striker, third choice keeper, away from home against a very good side. Great fight and besides a niggle to El Ghazi, looks like we survived without any injuries. Bodes well for a real scrap against City on Sunday.

  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

  33. Some very harsh comments about Wes tbh. Thought he played well when he dropped deep. Should he have scored? Of course. Was he "**** shit"? Absolutely not.

  34. People as usual are over reacting. Very disappointing to lose in this fashion, but again we competed extremely well and without our talisman. We’ve just played the best two teams in the league, one has won every game, often in the dying minutes. That’s why they’re at the top. Yes it has happened to us before this season, but we’re on a very steep learning curve. Time and patience required. Before the last two games people were hoping we didn’t get a Southampton style hammering. Support the team!

  35. Eh? Not in Dean Smith world/reality surely? We have just come up, were competitive with City and Liverpool and were 10 mins away from beating a quite incredible Liverpool team. Those aren't huge mental blows, they are reasons to be very confident we can stay up this season and reasons to not be afraid of anyone in this league. We are improving all the time if you ask me, a lot of people who had not been following us would have thought we'd get embarrassed badly at the Etihad and at home to Liverpool. We were a million miles from that. We appear to be a good Premier League team, a year ago we w
