  1. Tony Morley

    I have seen on another forum which shall not be named that Tony is in hospital for a knee replacement. My ultimate hero is Sid Cowans obviously.. Truth be told I am unfortunately a couple of years short of really seeing the League/European champions teams in action, I only started going with my mates in the mid 80's but I saw them a couple of times when my dad took me to Villa Park and started the obsession. Sid is my ultimate hero because I had the privilege of seeing him play regularly in his second and third stints with us and my god he was beyond supreme. Still for me better in his position than McGrath. HOWEVER when I was 10 years old I was ALWAYS Tony Morley when playing football. I was shocked to not find a thread specifically about him when I went to write about his hospital appointment *. This guy is a true Villa legend. He crossed the ball to Withe for our greatest ever moment. Anyway I wish him well and hope his new knees provides a better quality of life for him, bad knees are a real downer for people who suffer. I once met him and like all the old players I have met seemed a really decent fella. Good luck Tony. * it may actually exist as I am technology incompetent but I did search for a thread with his name in the title which came up blank. Apologies if this is me in the wrong!
  2. Lewis Grabban

    This one looks about done. Welcome!
  3. Axel Tuanzebe

    Birmingham Mail are reporting that we’re in for him on loan until the end of the season, so I thought he deserved his own thread. Birmingham Mail
  4. Jimmy MacEwan

    One of my early heroes "Although there was talk of a coaching job at Villa nothing materialised and Jimmy left to join Walsall, where he played into his forties then coached and managed until 1973 when he went to work at Ansells Brewery. "He continued to play for the Villa Old Stars well into his fifties and only really stopped playing after he had two knee replacements at the same time. "He was known for being bow-legged. He wasn't born that way, it was because of a stance he copied from a player back in Scotland. "In 1991 he had to have both legs broken to rectify it, and it made him about three inches taller!." "Up until the last 18 months when he was diagnosed with early onset dementia and a heart problem he was as fit as a fiddle. "He has been in residential care where he was safe, well looked after and seemed quite content. "He enjoyed his visits from ex players, including Harry Burrows, plus a couple of Villa fanatics who spent hours reminiscing with him."
  5. Mitchell Clark

    New thread for Mitchell Clark who made his debut for us tonight against Wigan.
  6. Jake Doyle-Hayes

    Not seen a thread for the kid. Impressive debut tonight.
  7. Robert Snodgrass

    There have been plenty of rumours about us trying to get Robert Snodgrass on loan from West Ham. Here's an article in the Birmingham Mail about it...
  8. Josh Onomah

    Josh Onomah has joined us on loan for the season! A young Spurs player who has been referred to as the best of the current generation of the Spurs academy, it is somewhat surprising he's actually being allowed to go out on loan, let alone to the Championship. It's likely we'll see him coming in to replace Grealish in the squad as the most attacking midfielder, however he has also played out wide for Spurs and often gets referred to as a box-to-box midfielder and has been compared favourably to Moussa Dembele by fans. Here's hoping it works out! www.independent.co.uk/sport/football/transfers/tottenham-transfer-news-josh-onomah-aston-villa-loan-mauricio-pochettino-loan-deal-a7876226.html
  9. Glenn Whelan

    Don't all start this player thread at once! Ah bugger, spelt it wrong in the title...
  10. Ahmed Elmohamady

    Looks set to be our next signing according to numerous news outlets. http://www.birminghammail.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/aston-villa-set-complete-third-13345527
  11. Joe Hart

    Right... well, I think we all agree the chances are somewhere between slim and none, and the three types of hope we have are Cape Hope, Bob Hope and no hope, but he is probably worth a thread for speculation now that it's been reported that we have made an approach. This Birmingham Mail article is about our loan approaches for Joe Hart and Sam Johnstone... Birmingham Mail
  12. John Terry

    Isn't it about time he had a thread? Things seem to be moving in the right direction - http://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/2017/06/21/aston-villa-make-concrete-offer-john-terry/?WT.mc_id=tmg_share_tw
  13. Cheick Tioté RIP

    It's been reported that former Newcastle midfielder Cheick Tioté has died of a heart attack aged 31, during a training session with his club side in Beijing. Tragic news, especially for such a young guy. http://www.independent.co.uk/sport/football/news-and-comment/cheick-tiote-dead-dies-died-newcastle-united-beijing-enterprises-heart-attack-cause-of-death-a7773986.html
  14. Jordan Cox

    http://footballleagueworld.co.uk/attacker-confirms-aston-villa-deal-on-social-media/ Have no clue about him, but found on newsnow.
  15. Chris Samba

    John Percy saying Chris Samba training with us as he is a free agent have we really got that desperate? Former Blackburn and QPR defender Chris Samba, now a free agent, is training with #avfc
  16. Kelsey Mooney

    U18s striker Kelsey Mooney has put pen to paper on his first professional contract until June 2019. I've seen him quite a few times for the U18s and he's an old fashioned style striker in that he's tall and puts himself about. He has no little skill to go with it though and is a good finisher, I don't know if he's Tommy Mooney's son or not, there's an article on the OS
  17. Scott Hogan

    Surely needs his own thread now as being reported everywhere and on yellow bar on Sunday. I would assume the 10m we are getting from Westwood and ayew deals are what is funding this deal?
  18. Neil Taylor

    As this one seems very close I thought he deserved his own thread. I think he is a very useful player and has always looked solid for Wales. Does this mean Amavi is off? I'd be happy with this signing as he has Premier league quality should a miracle happen and we were to go up. Definitely a player who could help us push for the play offs. Pleased if this goes ahead.
  19. There are quite a few players we think are rubbish, but how about the good ones? Not necessarily Gardwood, Cristiano Ronaldo, Agüero or Messi, just the ones the scout in you would recommend (preferably in lower and foreign leagues). I'll start with Bernardo Silva. He's not big, he's not fast but he is special.
  20. Jacob Bedeau

    Tony following him on Twitter, he's a villain now....
  21. Birkir Bjarnason

    This news has beaten all the press it would seem. As the rules stipulate to open a new player thread you must provide a link to the speculation source, I have had to link an old article from the Brum Mail in the Summer. It speculates where Villa could pick up an Icelandic star. Welcome Birkir (fingers crossed Villa Transfers Twitter account is on the money again) https://www.google.co.uk/amp/www.birminghammail.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/heres-aston-villa-could-pick-11534357.amp?client=ms-android-samsung
  22. James Bree

    Well the good doctor has gone and followed James Bree on Twitter. Strongest indication yet that he will be a Villa player before the end of January. Fingers crossed, looks a top prospect in a weak position in our team. http://www.birminghammail.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/aston-villa-transfer-news-james-12490988 Aston Villa owner Dr Tony Xia has done it again. The popular Chinese businessman has sent Villa supporters into a frenzy after following Barnsley defender James Bree on Twitter.
  23. Conor Hourihane

    S*n report Thought him worth his own thread at this point. As a side note, every player I have started a thread for has signed, eventually!
  24. Henri Lansbury

    Express & Star are reporting that Bruce has confirmed our interest in Lansbury, so I figured a speculation thread is in order. http://www.expressandstar.com/sport/aston-villa-fc/2017/01/05/january-transfer-window-steve-bruce-confirms-aston-villa-approach-for-henri-lansbury/
