Unoial Villa News…

*******

A round up of Aston Villa news, views and social media coverage, via the uno fish ial one… Multiple article authors … you can see who wrote each one at the top of articles.

The Jack Grealish debate will rumble throughout the summer. I think we’ll only know how good he is when he has decent players around him. Or does that sound too harsh? Maybe I should say top quality players around him. He probably needs to be out of the Championship due to the treatment he receives and the total lack of any decent refereeing to prevent him being kicked to high heaven each match.

‘Would be the worst’ ‘Cash in and move on’ – Debate Over Villa Talisman’s Potential Exit

*******

Brilliant. What do we get? Bull**** tweets and spin from our owner.

I’m not a betting man – (I lose too much when I try!) – but I wonder what the odds are for Jack Grealish to still be in a Villa shirt come the new season?

If One Tweet Means He’s Off To Spurs, Does Another Mean He’s Staying

And following a tweet about his potential departure being ‘gutting’ others respond:

‘Would be the worst’ ‘Cash in and move on’ – Debate Over Villa Talisman’s Potential Exit

I agree with Ron in the article comments to be honest, as good as he is, one man does not make a team. If we have to sell due to our woeful mismanagement, then that’s it really. Sad but true.

An interesting article from Vital Lion… Trust is an important trait for a manager. You can prepare your teams on the training ground, outline your tactics before the match, but once the eleven players walk across that white line, the coach has to trust them to implement what he has been saying to them all week.

Can Bruce Change His Ways To Inspire Villa’s Bright Lights?

Just all too hazy at the moment to figure out what is going on. If we want experience, I can’t really see, on the budgets/loans we are talking about, that Elphick can’t do the job. He did well when Terry was injured last season.

These sorts of links really don’t float my boat, what about our youth players coming through and we actually try to build something?

Robert Huth, Moses Odubajo and Michael Hefele are all said to be in the club’s sights but any decision on new signings will be made at the “start of next week.”

Amongst all the angst and speculation, wild guesses and worries, there are some good laughs still to be found on this strange situation we found our club in:

Aston Villa’s current financial state has taken a lot of the headlines so far this summer since news broke of our cash flow issues and our unknown Financial Fair Play hole as we go into the Championship season of 2018/19.

Failure to gain promotion back to the Premier League was always going to cause us problems and unfortunately for us, things have only got worse since then.

I think the man is ridiculous to be honest. He thinks this is communication?

And also:

It’s not shaping up to be a good summer for either Aston Villa as a club or the fans who continue to show their support with a fantastic response to season ticket sales for the season for 2018/19 – despite Play-Off disappointment last year and despite financial disappointment this summer that could require us to sell off our playing assets to address what can only be called financial mismanagement as we staked everything on gaining promotion back to the Premier League in 2017/18.

  • One of the special pleasures that were mine last season were watching Jack play..However one of the horrors were watching get kicked and kicked nd again without protection..

    • Agreed Honest Dave, surprised he’s not had his legs broken the treatment he gets and the lack of any sort of following of the rules by the refs
