    Ross McCormack

    numerous Speeding fines galore,. Has a poor general attitude. Had poor attitude at Arsenal, West Ham & Forest.. Heard from others in the game he is a bad egg. Hence why he never put effort in at Villa. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/sportsnews/article-3171092/Henri-Lansbury-hit-six-month-driving-ban-1-500-fine-Nottingham-Forest-midfielder-caught-speeding-115mph.html These are the type of players we should do more due diligence on likes of Richards, Lansbury, McCormack and Lescott and many others.

    i'm excited see what we do too. He needs time as seen what capable of under him when came which is type of football we been wanting to see to for years. Once he starts getting in the players in summer he likes to fit his system we will look very good

    Had attitude issues, fell out with team-mates and loads other problems at every club he was at from Rangers, Doncaster (Loan), Cardiff, Leeds, Fulham then us. Whoever sanctioned that move after not doing enough due-diligence is an absolute cockwomble. I was devestated when we signed likes of him, Lescott & Richards and next up is Lansbury as knew they would all take the piss out of Villa based on previous at all their other clubs. We really need stop looking at and signing these type of bad eggs.

    Scouting network

    Scouts as well i have met too many chancers in football already mate.. Need to be able ID players and bring to the table otherwise what's the point. I have met some scouts at high level clubs who been doing it for many years and not one of their suggestions their club has ever signed.

    Scouting network

    Watch this video re: Brentford i just watched it on linkedin as their Co-Director of Football Rasmus Ankerson is one of my connections: We should be doing this with undervalued players.. and keep scouting them to see if fit our criteria: https://www.skysports.com/watch/video/sports/football/11636616/ankersen-co-director-of-brentford-reaction?fbclid=IwAR0sHJy5dIPj9rPUDWKbu9ULA8tvWSC-G4D5bvrGkKVpLHkD_H91sjViJ_w

    The Manager thread

    They doing fine/he is in my view still could have strong end season. This season was always going be rebuild job and that club was in worse mess than us player wise and not easy at all to turn it around if they keep him i fully expect see them up next season after rebuild finished. i wonder myself if it's Ross or Tony Coton having say on final players signed? due to the latter knowing English market better as i haven't agreed on most of their signings as very poor quality and few journeymen players rather than promising youngsters signed... Pity they didn't get Lyle Taylor in summer as he chose Charlton he would have scored the goals needed and is better than Wyke. The firepower upfront needs be lot stronger in my view and wrong players purchased for that. Oztumer was close joining in Jan on loan he would have made big difference too.

    Kortney Hause

    To be fair mate Hause is crap he was at wolves too at CB, Iorfa was much better prospect than him few years back. Never rated Hause. Nothing will make me change my mind not sure about others on here even if played at CB for us. Absolute pointless signing for us on loan as well as Carroll. The mind just boggles why we are picking up pure garbage like Hause & Carroll on loan as awful players and both have had massive injury problems. I could give 50+ players with much bigger potentiald than these two from around Europe, lower leagues or Scottish leagues than these two plodders who are picking up a wage with us for very little outlay (as we probably paying 100% of the wages too)

    Dean Smith

    awful this chap is! watched him 3 times live last season at Walsall. Be gobsmacked if he makes it at Brentford Other loanee from Stoke was much better (Julien Ngoy)

    Dean Smith

    Would love chance send club email list of Lower Division players i feel can be improved and make us tidy profit but alas Suso has ignored two emails sent via Club Secretary to him with my Scouting CV & pdf's of my Scouting qualifications and few player reports from last season. Even said i didn't want a penny just help club i love. Have reports on over 50+ lower league players in my 2 years of scouting and opposition reports detailed and have done number of player scouting reports for number lower league clubs such as Tranmere & Salford City last couple of months via Scouting assocation i am with. Got players on my lists at League 1 & League 2 that could do a job for us. But Suso didn't even email back so won't bother again. i'll be back out scouting after my illness in next 2 or weeks i feel just awaiting game in my area from a lower leagues clubs request and normally have watch anything from 1 to 4 players and do reports on them from both clubs playing in match for example Port Vale vs Exeter had do number of player reports!! which i keep for future references once sent to club requesting reports such as Tranmere, AFC Fylde or Salford City and other clubs on network.

    Seen this other day. Smith, Cutler, Terry & O'Kelly are looking more domestic themselves rather than club employing any domestic scouts. With Juan Fran and other scouts based around Europe. https://www.birminghammail.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/aston-villa-transfer-purslow-smith-15717149

    Kortney Hause

    Harry Pickering we should have looked at in Jan from Crewe would have got for mil or so. Was midfielder converted to left back and impressing myself and number of scouts i have spoken too. Got good cross on him and will go on to better things. Some cracking kids currently at Crewe again. Pickering probably been best left back in League 2 this season. And can only keep improving. Hause is awful and never seen fuss in him at Wolves.
