  1. Great result these are the matches which will define our season. If we can maintain these performances and results against these teams and get bonus points against the better teams I feel a 10th - 12th place finish is a realistic target. On a side note how good is Mason Mount. Superb performance and result tonight. UTV.
  2. I could get use to this winning thing. Professional job. UTV
  3. Good start, 3 points on the board. These are exactly the games villa need to be winning. Hopefully a few more additions to the squad before the window closes.
  4. Scott Hogan has signed for Birmingham, undisclosed fee, 4 year contract.
  5. Reports Traore has passed his medical and will arrive in Birmingham tomorrow (Wednesday). Had work permit hearing today, apparently.
  6. Jack Signs New Contract Jack Grealish has signed a new 5 year contract. Excellent news.
  7. Personal terms agreed with Emi Martinez, 4 year contract. Fee yet to be agreed with Arsenal but not far off from being a done deal.
  8. Who would you like to see villa sign? If Watkins is our no. 9, I'd like Benrahma and Harry Wilson to provide the chances and additional goals.
  9. Aston Villa have completed the signing of striker Ollie Watkins from Brentford for a club record fee of £28m, which could rise to £33m with add-ons.
  10. It leaves Heaton on the bench. Martinez is 27/28 not quite sure and I don't want us spending £15-20 for a bench warmer. From the list of attackers we've been linked with I like Watkins the most as he brings versatility of being able to play across the front 3.
  11. Absolutely, we seem to be 'penny pinching' unfortunately as the transfer window nears it's end prices will only go up not down. If we have identified a player we need to pay the price and get it done, or move on. WATKINS & BENRAHMA should have been done weeks ago, if we really are interested in signing them. Then the 'need time to gel' excuses will get rolled out..........AGAIN.
  12. Tottenham Hotspur are ‘making a dramatic late move’ for Ollie Watkins and ‘fighting hard’ with Aston Villa to sign the Brentford striker, according to The Sun on Sunday (6 September, page 61). It is claimed that Brentford have hired an agency to sell last season’s 26-goal Championship top scorer, alerting Tottenham.
  13. Villa have withdrawn their offer for WILSON as he wants to join Newcastle. Happy with this as he turns 29 this season and doesn't want to join us. No point trying to persuade a Bournemouth player with a mediocre scoring record to sign. Unless there is a massive turn around in our transfer business this season looks even bleaker than I thought it would be.
  14. Aston Villa defender James Bree is set to seal a permanent exit from Villa Park to join Luton Town, as per Football Insider. The defender is in advanced talks to re-join the Hatters after he enjoyed a loan stint at Kenilworth Road last season. I'd forgot about this guy, believe we paid £3m for him.
  15. Two points dropped by Rangers from a display described on Sportsound as 'toothless'. This is hard for me to judge without having seen the game. I just hope we are not embarking on a repeat of the second half of last Season ! Larry, More same old, same old. Until Rangers start taking 3 points from these games consistently we cannot and do not deserve anything. We consistently struggle to break down teams who sit deep, IMO this has been a constant problem that SG has failed to solve, and appears unable to solve.
  16. Dimi, Agreed, or the match forfeited by Aberdeen and a 3-0 win awarded to the opposition.
  17. Craig SHAKESPEARE CRAIG SHAKESPEARE has been announced as Dean Smith's new No2 at Aston Villa.
  18. Dimi, Disney Land Paris, been twice FCUKIN nightmare. 5 year old daughter was so hyped, i didn't sleep for 4 days as she kept waking us up at silly o'clock in the morning. Was due to go again this month but then COVID happened.
  19. Dimi, Ready made replacement for ODSONNE, just imagine GRIFFITHS & FLETCHER.
  20. Bienvenue. I've been to DisneyLand Paris.
  21. Dimi, Fingers crossed you manage to get this deal over the line. Steven Fletcher has been offered a one-year contract by Celtic after the 33-year-old striker rejected a new deal with Sheffield Wednesday. But no agreement between the player and the Scottish champions has been reached as yet.
  22. Ultimately if Villa end up with ODSONNE I would be more than happy as I agree he does appear to have the ability/potential to make the step up. BUT, I'd personally still go for ABRAHAM.
  23. I think you should be able to judge a player regardless of the league they play in Dimi, Of course the league matters, how many goals would Cristiano RONALDO score playing in the Belgian league for example, there is obviously a step up in skill required the higher you go. That's why not all players make the step up. If you are referencing Henrik LARSSON then agreed he was a 'world class' player and he proved that by scoring goals for Barcelona and having a short successful period at Man Utd. Leigh GRIFFITHS has scored a lot of goals in the SPFL, but he is not a
  24. He was a good championship player when at Leeds, which I personally feel is generally a higher level than the majority of SPFL teams (no offence intended just my honest opinion on the standard). I believe he will be a significant upgrade for Rangers and hopefully make them less reliant on the hot/cold MORELOS. Whilst ITTEN, I am aware of but haven't seen him play to be able to give an opinion. As you say I trust SG's judgement as this is a significant investment for Rangers, we cannot afford to get wrong.
