  1. In the grand scheme of things its quite irrelevant but maybe a football or sports related thread. Serie A is going to have a big backlog of games and think Germany and France might have cancellations soon. Have the authorities got a solution. European games would be the big risk in the coming weeks not to mention a bloated Euros in the summer
  2. Retained Contracts Appiah, Paul Nana Akwashi Bree, James Patrick Bridge, Mungo Olayipo Oladapo Brunt, Lewis Campton-Sturridge, Dj Clarke, Jack Aidan Davis, Keinan Vincent Joseph (Extended) Eissa, Ahmed Elmohamady El Ghazi, Anwar Engels, Bjorn Lionel G.

  3. Early days I know but with players being told about their futures today and tomorrow then we should have a good idea about what squad we have left and what gaps are to be filled in due course. I reckon by 1st June this will be our squad remaining. I will assume that Gardner, McCormack, Tshibola won't get a look in. I am confident we will sign at least Hause and El Ghazi and most probably Mings but I will leave him out for now. GKs Steer Kalinic Nyland RBs Elmo Guiilbert Bree LBs Taylor CBs Chester Hause RM Adomah Green LM El Ghazi CM Grealish McGinn Hourihane Lansbury Thor CF Kodjia Davis Hogan Questions: 1. Who would you sell? 2. Anyone with expiring contract that you would retain? (I have assumed Steer will stay) 3. What positions are key? For me: 1. Adomah, Lansbury, Thor, Hogan 2. Only Steer - no room for sentiment so no Whelan for me 3. LB, CB, DM, RM and ST - Ming is the obvious one for CB but we will still need to sign another 1 or 2 depending on Chester. LB needs to be a big signing, a modern full back. DM is the key position as Hourihane is a great option but we need better in the PL imo. RM - Lolley, Bowen etc. Striker - I wouldn't go for Abraham personally. Maupay for me.
  4. Everything is up in the air, football is even more broken and as much as people like to pretend they know what is it going to happen in the coming months no one really knows. Clubs are going under, clubs are having their transfer budgets slashed or even erased. And tons of clubs owes huge sums to agents and other clubs for unpaid transfer fees already. There is a huge black hole in the finances of football where the clubs themselves actually doesn't have much money and are relying on loans and their owners to bail them out because agent fees and ridiculous salaries are siphoning all the money out from the game. Man U has apparently taken out a £140m emergency loan to be able to keep spending in the summer despite owing £200m in unpaid transfers to various clubs... Player valuations are falling through the floor. I know there is a debate about this and we'll see. But there are still transfers to be done in the summer. And some, like Ziyech to Chelsea is already done. Apparently Icardi to PSG is very close to be completed but for a much smaller fee than what was initially suggested. "Only" £55-58m or so. Bit of a steal that. Let the madness begin!
  5. I think one of the most disappointing things about the game yesterday was our set pieces. Time after time we tried to play a short ball and work it into the box rather than crossing it in. It’s fine doing this once in a while but other times a good cross into the box works wonders. I’m not sure it’s even orders from the manager. Smith made a point of saying that he thinks goals from cbs are vital and in Mings and Engels we have two attacking defenders who can score. I think at times Jack and McGinn try to rush things as they see an opening or a chance. Yesterday there was even one corner taken before the cbs had even got into the box.
  6. Personally I'm thinking we need around 8 or 9 players. 1 striker (preferably can play out wide), 1 RW, 1 CAM/LW (Depending on where grealish plays), 1 Backup Winger/Striker, 1 CDM, 1 Keeper, 1 E Experienced CB, 1 LB.
  7. lets be real, we are pretty much relegated now, if we do manage to stay up, fair play and i will eat my proverbial hat. So, i would like to review the current squad and requirements next year for an attempt at automatic promotion. Current Squad: Keep: Heaton , Steer, Targett, Taylor, Engels, Konsa, Hause, Guilbert, Elmo, Nakamba, Hourihane, El Ghazi, Jota, Wesley, Samatta, Davis, [give some youth a chance also - ie: bench]. Keep if we can: Mings, McGinn, Luiz Sell/release: (inc. players we have zero chance to keep) Nyland, Bree, Lansbury, Grealish, Trezeguet. this may provide £60 - 70m+? Players Position purchase requirements - min. £80m to spend - money from sales above inc. some monetary input from club (must be quality signings.....!!!!): Defensive Midfielder Central Midfielder Left Winger/Left Inside Forward Right Winger/Right Inside Forward Striker (possibly? - youth/development?) your thoughts!?
  8. Could create a new topic surrounding villa finances overall? I imagine deals will be coming all over the place not just for shirt?
  9. Friday Europa League Sevilla v Inter Milan 8pm Sunday Champions League Bayern v PSG 8pm Both on BT Sport/YouTube BT Sport channel for free
  10. RB Leipzig v PSG is already a wide-open affair. Chances at both ends.
  11. Real Madrid or Man City v Lyon or Juventus Lepzing v Atletico Madrid Napoli or Batcalona v Chelsea or Bayern Munich Atalanta v PSG Semi Final Leipzig v Atletico Madrid v Atalanta v PSG Real Madrid or Manchester City v Lyon or Juventus v Napoli or Barcelona v Chelsea or Bayern Munich
  12. Might as well start. According to the Birmingham Mail we are interested in Barnsley defender Liam Lindsey. He has a girls name so seem to be in line with previous transfer strategy. Anyone seen him play?

    AVTV 2019/20

    OK so I don't subscribe to this but I see people moaning all the time. I do/have watched loads of the YouTube videos which I assume are basically AVTV. So the quality of commentary and analysis is as far as I can see ranging from poor to downright ambarassing. The commentator on the Minnesota website TV sounded like he worked on Sky Sports or summat. And it turns out he's a huge Villa fan and ex season ticket holder. Can we not outbid an MLS team and bring a commentator home?

  19. I wonder if it will be those 3 stripes?.. To answer their question. If the kit is shit I wouldn't buy it no matter who made it. Equally, I wouldn't want someone like Slazenger or someone shit suddenly developing our kit either.
  20. Thought it would be nice to collect amusing examples of people accusing us of doing a Fulham this season, as I imagine we'll be hearing this for at least the next 6 months (or forever, if we actually do a Fulham). Looking forward to the We're Doing A Fulham chants when we're three goals up against Wolves. Starting with last week's classic from Fat Sam. https://talksport.com/football/577298/aston-villa-fulham-spending-summer/ Keep them coming...
  21. Sorry for the negative title in this thread, but which players would/could stay? If we go down, Jack will leave. Probably Mings. Maybe Luiz. Maybe Mcginn, I guess that'll depends on how he is after the injury. I think Samatta, Nakamba, Guilbert, Konsa etc will stay if theres no relegationclause in their contracts. Wesley and Heaton probably wont be fit when the season starts so they will stay. Discuss!
