I reckon Gabby is sitting on Talksport thinking he might be able to get a game now his mate is now back. 😂

Don't get me started, anyone who has been on here long enough will remember the dramatic arguments we had a bout Gabby ( Me being a huge fan at the time ) haha

Christ. Oh well. Let's hope he apologises for trying to relegate us by cheating. I can't be bothered to go through all the posts to see who claimed Jack Grealish would do the exact same if/when he moves. Dumbest post I've read in a long time. I was part of a now defunct Villa forum that documented just how loathsome an individual he was at the club with various examples seen first-hand behind the scenes, but that's ancient history and easy to move on from. What isn't, is that dive when we were at our lowest ebb.

Some things are easy to forget, forgive, shrug about, some things are not. I wouldn't even call it irrational, but simply unforgivable. Before responding please ask yourself if you have your own Villa moment that still feels as painful now as whenever it happened.... this is what football does to you. If you've moved on from it, good for you. Personally, I'd hoped we'd moved on as a club from going down the old nag with massive ego on a big salary route. Doesn't deserve to wear the shirt again. Gutted to see it, and for the youth prospect he's stifling.

Am I the first to ask when we will be re-signing Milner and Barry? We won't be needing Zat Knight. We never did.

Welcome back Ashley. I think this is a smart move by the club and I'm looking forward to seeing him on the pitch playing for us again.

Not particularly bothered about how he left. Can't expect a good player to stay at a club on a clear downward trend just because we want him to. Whatever your feelings, hopefully we can all get behind him while he does play for us.

Wasn’t much fuss when he left never played a poor game for us, people making him out to be like Alpay and Yorke

edit or Delph genuinely forgot he played football

McLeish was appointed 10 years ago today and Ashley Young was sold the following week. It set in a period of big decline for the club and even though it's not the same Ashley Young we are signing back, the club is certainly in a much healthier state with some positive times surely ahead.

It was one dive a decade ago. Time to let it go. You'll be happier for it. The good he did for us far outweighs that.

Disagree on that. You don't forget treason or acts of cuntery based on how many good things are done before or after. He made his bed.

Mistake by Deano. Should never have been re-signed. I'd never applaud him.

I just seen a picture in the 21/22 new kit thread and had to come in this thread to see if it was legit 🤣

Welcome back Ash, lets see if you can make it four 6th place finishes in a row for Villa! 

He finished 9th in his last season with us.

Say no to Houllier season erasure!

Young was a brilliant player for us in the past. For some reason DS and the club apparently wanted him back... and he seems genuinely thrilled to be back. This might be a really astute signing, or perhaps he'll only play a bit part role. I want to believe it's the former.

So were you okay with all the times he "went down easily" playing for us?

Seriously, time to move on. Things happen in the moment. He probably lost himself in the moment and then maybe immediately after felt bad for doing it against us. Things happen in the moment.

It wasn't like he put in a transfer request or forced a move. It wasn't even like the dive was in a crucial game that relegated us. It was a nothing moment in a game we'd have probably lost dive or no dive.

If he'd done a Delph, then yes fair enough. I'd not be welcoming him back either. But he was nothing but an absolute professional for our cause whilst here. Always gave 100%.

Great signing by Smith. No mistakes at all.
