  1. So with our new Sporting Director, Manager and Assistant Manager in place, who do we think we'll be looking at in January? Wonder if Terry might be able to lure Gary Cahill back to Villa? We sorely need a solid CB to partner Chester.
  2. So Pulisic to Chelsea for £60m the first big one (although he'll stay at Dortmund til the summer) Perhaps not worth the money from a footballing aspect quite yet, but from a marketing aspect it's a smashing deal.

    You OK there Oumar Niasse? Blink twice if you are being held at Cardiff against your will.

    18/19 Race for Promotion

    It's not as if we have a core squad of players who we are building a long term squad around. It's a season by season constant rebuild. Promotion will mean a total rebuild, no promotion will also mean a total rebuild. Kalinic, McGinn, Grealish, that's the core as it looks now. Our around 30 y.o players are struggling this season and are unlikely to improve the next one. Keeping Grealish another season in the Championship is doubtful. While rebuilding in the PL will cost a lot more and be against much tougher opposition, we will at least have money and the opportunity for our new owners to show their true mark. Doing it in the Championship with little money is a much less desirable prospect IMO. we've not laid any foundation during our time in the Championship. Thanks to Xia, Wyness, Round, RDM and Bruce for that.
  5. I hear he's not the player he once vase, doubt he'd be able to create himself a dynasty here. Fragile like china they say.

    Manchester United

    He's doing really well, well beyond the mere new manager bounce and players relieved to be rid of Mourinho. He might even get the job long term if they keep it up. Still feel thou that Man U, just like when he was a player see him more as a super sub manager, than as a regular. Think this will end up similar to RDM's spell at Chelsea, although I don't see Manure winning the CL. Can't dismiss he's had a very positive impact so far thou.
  7. If nothing else Tyrone Mings is a pretty bad ass name. Sounds like a character from a 90's hood movie. But I'm not sure we should be signing someone who's been out injured since 2015
  8. Westwood is approaching 30 now so perfect time to give him a 4 or 5 year contract on PL wages so he can come here and retire. Those kind of deals has worked so well for us over the last decade or so
  9. Apparently about to sign Kerim Mrabti previously at Djurgården in the Swedish Allsvenskan. 24 y.o Midfielder with 3 caps for Sweden who should have been part of the winter tour but declined because he was about to sign for an unnamed club., out of contract since Jan 1. Not a bad player, no idea how he'll fair in the Championship
  10. Kinda thought Prince Philip would have a nicer car. Nice to see he's OK thou.

    Chris Gaughran - AKA Villan4Life

    Nailed on for the LB spot against Hull. We need you back! Get well soon pal.
  13. Hard to say that since he's been out a year from football. His injury record in the last 4-5 years is horrendous.
  14. Turkish papers claiming we are after Islam Slimani, currently on loan at Fenerbahce from Leicester. Somehow I don't see this one happening also reports we are after yet another Everton player who can't get a game there after a bad injury in James McCarthy. Don't see that one happening either. Both seem like transfers I'd expect to see had Bruce still been here.

    The new Jermaine Jenas, only he's ours. Shame for him, shame for us. Only 2.5 years left to run on his £35-40k/w contract

    Winter Transfers 18/19

    Sead Haksabanovic back to Sweden and IFK Norrköping this time on a 1.5 year loan from West Ham. Still only 19 so here's hoping he can retrieve his form.

    André Green

    Have a feeling Kodija might be off to Nice so Green may be brought back as cover for both the wings and striker position. All hinges on Balotelli securing his move from Nice to Marseille. Or it's just that our late 20's early 30's players are exhausted after the holiday schedule and Green might offer a set of fresh legs.
  19. Aston Villa, new owners, but back to Penney pinching already I see.

    This must be nailed on for a couple of academy awards surely. Can't wait to see it, love Sam Elliot.

    Rui Pinto, the guy behind the "football leaks" has been arrested in Budapest. since he's the source for a lot of the things in this thread I thought I put it here (Google translate alert) https://www.sabado.pt/portugal/detalhe/hacker-do-benfica-foi-detido

    So does End Game take place before or after Logan, or is it a different universe/timeline/whatever?

    Leeds United

    Did Stuart Pierce actually suggest that the Derby result should be reversed because Leeds sent a guy with binoculars to a nearby green area?
