Ashley Old more like . This is the biggest case of false advertising since The Never Ending Story which has a run time of 1h 47m .

Totally on board for the upgraded set pieces mind you .

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.

Aren’t you based in Scandinavia mate? Even if you clapped he wouldn’t be able to hear you 😉😜

I know their will always be moaners but man I had no idea this many would have negative words for Young's return. Nostalgia is one of the main reason we are all fans. Your Dad, Uncle, Brother, Mom or whomever bringing you to your first match as a little one. How everything seemed so large and loud. How it all made you feel. It's literally why most of us are here. 

Seriously if you can't get swept up in a little nostalgia then I have to ask....Who hurt you?

He finished 9th in his last season with us.

Say no to Houllier season erasure!

Oh yeah

Damn, we were flirting with relegation most that season as well. Just the last couple months we put some results together and shot up the league!

Looking back that was still a decent squad with Young, Bent, Delph etc

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. 

He turned down a contract from inter to sign with us which is pretty amazing.

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.

I'd like to hear more about these behind the scenes twatterry! 

I don't believe he consciously tried to relegate us. He was just playing his natural game. That's just how he played.

Just don't believe he is still capable of playing at the level we need him to perform at.

People talking about that dive like it was the end of Aston Villa in the early 10’s.

Nah, poor recruitment, leadership, management destroyed us then. Wake up man

Sorry to labour the point, but I have no idea where this idea that he’s an asshole with a bad attitude has come from. He dived to win a penalty 10 years ago, so what. 

Because football fans are over emotional idiots with long memories. 

This comes from someone who is also still bitter about that dive. 

Only difference is I’m willing to realise that’s my issue and not his 😂

The lad who might go on to be one of our best ever players, if he isn’t already, is an absolute master at choosing when to go down. Just because he’s one of the best ever at that as well doesn’t change the fact. And you can be damn sure he wouldn’t change his game if god forbid he ever faced us in opposition. Neither would I expect him to.
 

Young was at the club what, 4 and a half seasons? And people are expecting him to have acted like he was a boyhood fan. Either way, it’s pathetic to hold onto it for so long. It was TEN YEARS ago.
 

All the evidence regaining his personality points to the contrary, that he’s a consummate professional. I hate it when “woke goes wrong” but I genuinely think the colour of his skin is clouding some people’s judgement of him as a human being. 

It's pretty close to the penalty Jack won against West Brom in the playoff semi-final, give or take the fish out of water act. I'm fairly confident Jack would go down the exact same way if he were playing against us, and he's a boyhood Villa fan.

Hi lads 😉

Funny how you don’t put yourself on the line until he’s signed. What did you win?

Its a poor signing and again goes against what the club said they would do in the transfer market, But then again they also said they would never make a loan signing without a sell on clause.

Was surprised to read that the fee United paid was only 17 mill, seems like a pittance now...

He signed for us for a club record £8 million signing. How quaint.

No doubt it was paid in shillings and Young was  then taken up to Villa Park on one of those newfangled horseless carriages.
