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.

Bit of a monster one this, I’ve not been around much as I ended up more ropey than I’d thought I would after my kidney stones were removed!

A point of debate I guess. Thing is, for me, it’s always going to be Villa Park anyway, however holding on to our history whilst the present isn’t so great, is important as well. IF this was something that could really take us forward, then I think most would understand. But could it really? If we did it, it would look like a bailout of a very bad situation and still be crisis management.

Possible Aston Villa Sale Gets A Step Closer As We Look To Solve Our Financial Mess

I especially like the ‘from Snodgrass to nograss’ tweet in this report! I do often get amazed how fans will take one bit of news and see it as informing another. Just glad to see the pitch is still in the process of being re-layed, if not for Tony Xia it would have been done in a timely fashion last season but he put a stop to it (11 years into a 10-year lifespan) because we won the pitch of the year award.

Personally, I think that any player has a price in our current situation. In fact, in football, I guess any player has their price full stop.

It seems that we are open to offers for Albert Adomah if the Birmingham Mail are to be believed. The 30-year-old may have been our top goalscorer last season, but the club’s need to make at least £40m in player sales this summer means a number of hard decisions will be made.

Hogwash… this surely wouldn’t be a move that would interest him?

Hope he goes on and has a fantastic career. Good luck to him. I still remember the ridiculous decision by Martin O’Neill to let Gary Cahill go and how upset the youth set up at Bodymoor was at the time.

Earlier this week, the club revealed their released and retained list with some notable players like John Terry, Gabby Agbonlahor and Chris Samba among the names being let go.

However, there was one other name who was surprisingly not retained. The Under 23 goalkeeper Viktor Johansson is highly rated by those who have seen him play.

Some are dreading December.  For me, I always think we have to play them all at some stage, so can’t be bothered over worrying when.  We have a fascinating season in store, it’s all a bit … up in the air right now isn’t it?

With the media beginning a fresh round of rehashing when it comes to Aston Villa’s well known financial troubles of late with HMRC and what we believe to be Dr Tony Xia’s ongoing search for small investors (at the very least) in the club to tide us over, whatever the true facts of our cash flow problems are – actual physical news is thin on the ground.

I’ll state straight away, although Adama Traore showed significant improvement in 2017/18 for Middlesbrough given what I saw, parts of his game continued to lack the basic elements of team-work and although his attacking play was more productive – it was still very much head down and sprint.

Lots of transfer speculation, not sure any of it is any good.

Both Brighton and Stoke City will look to offer around £8m for James Chester with their opening bids this week. Considering we paid a similar amount for the 29-year-old, I expect us to reject these proposals if they are made. Villa Need To Resist Selling Key Defender For Below The Going Rate
