    John McGinn

    Must have been every week after his Villa debut...would explain a few things (it all started off so promisingly).

    Ron Saunders in care

    The best Villa manager in my lifetime, and the Championship squad probably had the best TEAM ethic i've seen at any football club. Football's changed and I don't expect to ever see the likes of Ron or that team again. Sad days, thanks for the memories Ron.

    Don't forget Simon Stainrod....on second thoughts let's not taint the thread.

    His energy and hunger for the ball reminded me of Milner under MON. That can't be a bad thing. Great debut.

    Transfer Window Summer 2018

    Priority has to be a centre back, Jedinak is very poor in that position and Bruce doesn't seem to trust Elphick. Huth might be a possibility for thatnrile. RW is also somewhere we are desperate fot, I'd like to see Odegaard, would be happy with Snodgrass back too. Striker, is also a position we need to cover. Kodgia is a long way from his form of 2016\2017, Hogan can't be relied upon in Bruce's system. Davis and RHM have potential (would like to see them play together), but it would be a lot of pressure to make either the main guy. We need someone powerful with a presence in the box (Benteke like). I have no idea who we could get who would fit this role.

    So Villa owe Bristol City money and yet Bristol City we’re prepared to deal with us again ? You don’t th8nk that’s weird ?

    Joe Bryan

    So it’s basic jealousy then ? Villa fans arrogant or Bristol City fans small minded ?

    I htink if that was the case he'd have been fired. Bruce won't do anything to upset the apple cart right now, I don't think even he is that dumb. Perhaps he's made his mind up about Steer, and he's neve rated Bunn.

    Thought we were signing Elon Musk for a minute

    Jack Grealish

    I htink for us to cancel it he'd have to be in breach, and for him to cancel it....well that would never happen.

    Jack Grealish

    Cancel his contract how ? There is no possibility of cancelling a contract unless the club has been in breach of it.

    That was it

    Villa Kit 2018-19

    Sizes are larger than last year. I would say sizes for the average Joe are true. I'm a 42-44 chest and Large fitted me just fine, could possibly have got away with a medium (but chose to have breathing room). Last year I tried on an extra large away kit and found it uncomfortable...hence I didn't buy one.

    Looking at that list, I expect to see Nelson Oliveira rock up at B6 this week. Which wouldn't be the worst striker we could sign. I'd love to see a loan for Wallace from Lazio (CD), but I think thats out of the question as he's been getting game time there.

    André Moreira

    I will say this is not a typical Bruce signing. Does it indicate a change of direction ?
