Unoial Villa News…

A very silly link for McCormack to Wolves. Lets sort out our service and these strikers will score for us! Plus other transfer links…. Bumper Aston Villa Transfer News – Incoming & More Out?

Following the link yesterday to Henri Lansbury I decided to ask our Vital Forest editor his opinion… Our Kids Dad told me: ‘Believe or not – Henri is only 26, but he is out of contract this summer and whilst he can be a game changer on his day, if Villa are looking at outbidding Derby – who have had an offer of £2.5m turned down, then this will take some turning down by Forest – we are skint! Perhaps £2.5m and Gary Gardner coming the other way?” Read more: Click Here

With the month of January upon us, another half season loan spell has come to an end – Riccardo Calder from Doncaster Rovers. His most recent loan deal came to an end yesterday as he was of course with them for a spell between March and June in 2015/16 where he made seven starting appearances with a further five from the bench.

And tweeted:

The Birmingham Mail have quotes from Steve Bruce saying he had Rushian Hepburn-Murphy on the bench at the weekend because he had been told the striker was close to signing a new deal. Now it seems it`s not been signed and Bruce is playing hardball with him, which is understandable. Bruce said: ‘We have made a fantastic offer to the young boy but until he commits he won`t be involved.’ Read more: Until He Commits To Villa I Won’t Commit To Him

Vote vote vote… ! TOooooo much caffeine now…! See: Vote For The Vital Villa Player Of December

Halfway to paradise, halfway to … If the games over the Christmas period can be considered one of the watersheds of the season, then Villa managed to keep themselves precariously on the apex and avoided going anywhere in particular. They managed to repair the damage done earlier in December at Leeds and Norwich by beating QPR and Burton, gained respectability with a home draw against Leeds but then started 2017 with a performance at Cardiff which went beyond bloody awful. So Villa find themselves exactly halfway, nineteen points from the top and twenty-two points off the bottom, with a goal-difference of plus-two. Read more: Something For The Weekend (558)
