Re: Redknapp / Birmingham

Every cloud has a silver lining, they sent Villa bottom. In fairness to Redknapp, the squad he's inherited isn't that great, they've got a massive injury list and he's struggling to bring players in. Not sure I'd want to go there if I was a player. The club's a basket case. Well I'm sure they'll en...

wtf? why are Man City trying to buy Johnny Evans?? :lol:


Johnny Evans!!!!! 18 mill!!!!! WTAFFFFFFFFFF



Probably because he's been one of the most reliably good CB's in the league for the last 3 or 4 seasons.

Re: RUMOUR - Nelson Oliveira

This was always likely to be one of those transfers that would only have happened before the season started. Once it kicked in, we were basically hoping that Cameron Jerome went on a scoring streak keeping Olivera out of the side.

What were the chances of that actually happening?

Do you have both audio commentary and stream on at the same time online? I haven't figured out how to do that.


No, just have the crowd noise - have no interest in the radio commentary to be honest.

Re: Royals on the Box/Internet Thread

Can I just say, guys, I am so happy to be able to watch the team each week. It has been a long 9 years supporting from Australia and listening every game. Great isn't it - over the past 4 years had obviously only seen the games Sky have put on - this year, I'll probably get to see more games than m...

Re: BFTG - Villa

Lots of Villa fans on the bus last night with distinctly un-brummie accents, for what it's worth Little question from last night fact fans, our goal was given by the goal decision system, as this is the first season the EFL has had the system is there a chance this was the first EFL goal given by t...

Re: Rumour: Sone Aluko

bit of noise about this one again. Seems the mini rant on Twitter and the Fulham no long contracts to over 28s is fuelling things again. Looks like BT, Stam and co have been quite clever in picking him out as a potential target. Not too sure that its priority for us. Him and Barrow in tandem could ...

Re: BFTG - Villa

It makes a huge difference to the atmosphere when there is a full away end. Unfortunately most clubs in the division are the other end of the country so not sure it will be repeated too often I can see both Sheffield clubs bringing 4k, 'boro if they continue doing well, Wolves, Leeds, Sunderland, B...

Re: Transfer Window

However, it appears this is to be a unilateral decision by the PL, doesn't this automatically make it a flawed plan? If the rest of the major leagues can buy until the end of August, what is to stop a Barca/Real bidding silly money and turning the head of a key player like they always do. Only if i...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Aston Villa (h) sponsored by Leandro Bacuna

For 86 mins as composed and as dominant display as you could wish to see, esp. Over a supposedly fancied team. Front 3 were particularly good, we're time in the 1st half where Villa were simply spectators. Typical Reading though to switch off and turn a comfortable night into a heart attack. Get a s...

Transfer Window

So seems there is a move afoot by the PL to shorten the summer window so that is closes before the season starts and it may be in place by next summer. In practice, this is a great idea and makes perfect sense as would mean teams will know their squad at the start and not spend the first few weeks n...

At a complete guess, I would say he was probably told he could leave at some point over the past month but the club have changed their mind.

Re: RUMOUR - Shane Long (lol)

Nothing wrong with the move persee Woodcote, everyone would love him here. The general loling is because his last reported wage at Soton was £50k pw, in 2014. So you can probably add a few extra grand to that. Would be great to be wrong, but I don't see the owners sanctioning that kind of wage just ...

German season started with the tradional "fun" weekend that is the Cup 1st round, where the big boys are all drawn away to sides in the 3rd Division or lower. Dortmund had to go Rielasingen, who play in a glorified park league. Only real shock seeing Hamburg lost 3-1 at 3rd division Osnabr...
