Aston Villa 3-3 Sheffield United|What. A. Comeback!!!

Andre Green

Well I have no words to describe this Friday night match because, It’s either we were shit or they were shit but fuck it’ I’ll take a point but really and truly it should of been 3 points.

First half we was 100% dogshit from the fouls the desire and the passing especially from Hourihane who was terrible. He’s only good at taking free kicks and 2 metre passes that’s it. Clumsy when he takes corners, and clumsy from long range passing. The same with Jedinak who made it quite clear that he’s not good enough for Dean Smith’s squad at all. Billy Sharp made it 1-0 and he’s in form at the moment with him and Tammy Abraham both close to 20 goals in the Championship, and if Sheffield United win they will go top on goal difference ahead of Norwich and Leeds.

Second half started and we came out still playing like shit and the referee and linesman were both at fault for the second goal in which Sharp was offside when the initial shot was saved by Kalinic who had a decent game to be fair to him, a header hit the post and Kalinic had both hands on the ball and Sharp caught the ball and his hands to make it 2-0 and it was never a goal. If that goal didn’t stand then it could of been 3-2 but that’s not a bit fair because we only started fighting for the last 10 minutes of the game. Hutton yet again was the mistake for the third goal and Sharp collected his hat-trick and again Hutton should fuck off and he’s not good enough and he’s stealing a living like Richards.

We got one goal back when Mings heads it in to make it 3-1 and after the incident in Reading his performance was superb and he’s been brilliant again last night. I thought that’s are only goal but then Abraham made it 3-2 and I thought surely not we left it late to fight back. But out of nowhere, super-sub Andre Green leaps up and heads it in to make it 3-3 and Villa Park went absolutely mental as we was bad but Sheffield United were bad as how can they fuck up a 3-0 lead with 8 minutes left and they’ve given Norwich and Leeds an opportunity to take control of the league table.

Some positives to come out from this as Mings and Elphick were brilliant together and Green came on and made an instant impact as he scored the equaliser. A win is what we needed and we keep getting draws and they won’t help us this season as I’ve now said that we won’t make play-offs as it will take a miracle to get this defence sorted and get into the top 6 by the end of March. We showed a lot of character and fight to fight back from being 3-0 down but really we didn’t deserve anything from this game but I’ll take a point rather then no points, so we move on to Wednesday with Brentford and the big one against West Brom on Saturday UTV!!!!

AVFC January Transfer Recap| What a stressful month but we got the job done.

Well finally the January window is finally closed and we can now relax and let’s see what the next 5 months will bring if we do get promotion or not, Let’s get in to the players we brought in and the players who left either on loan or permanently.

We started off so well with the signing of Kalinic for £7 million which was good then we bring in a defender from Wolves on loan with Kortney Hause and it was a good start to the window and we move on. One silver lining is that we kept Tammy Abraham after reports of him moving to Wolves etc  and I’m glad we are able to keep him. The weeks go by we are rumoured with numbers of players left right and centre and we don’t make the move for them and we take to Deadline day to sign 3 more players.

Tyrone Mings came in on loan which was needed because we’ve been linked with him for 2 weeks, Frederick Guilbert signed for us for £4.4 million but we loaned him back to Caen so he will ready for the summer next season which i’m excited about. Then the third signing which could of be Leroy fer on a free which would be superb but his medical wasn’t great and decided to stay at Swansea, but we got Tom Carrol on loan which is actually decent as he’s a decent player and that’s it. The one regret really is that it was too late as if we got Mings and Guilbert a week before deadline day then we could of got 2 or 3 more in on deadline day.

This is the list of players who left this January:

  1. Scott Hogan to Sheffield United (Loan)

  2. James Bree to Ipswich Town (Loan)

  3. Callum O’Hare to Carlisle United (Loan)

  4. Corey Blackett-Taylor to Walsall (Loan)

  5. Rushian Hepburn-Murphy to Cambridge United (Loan)

  6. Jake Doyle-Hayes to Cambridge United (Loan)

  7. Harry McKirdy to Newport County (Loan)

  8. Jacob Bedeau to Scunthorpe United (Free Transfer)

So yeah a lot of players gone but the Young players are getting the opportunity to get first team football in order to get chance in the first team for Villa next season which is good to see as we have talent in the club.

Let’s hope these signings will give us the strengths to keep up the pace with other teams and we can get promotion this season UTV!!

AVFC Transfer Roundup #4

Welcome back to AVFC Transfer Roundup, the blog that keeps you up to date with players who have linked to move in or out of Aston Villa and we have some interesting stories to discuss.

Frederic Guilbert

Image result for frederic guilbert

Aston Villa have been linked with a very highly rated French defender from Caen in 24 year old Frederic Guilbert. The french full back who can play LB or RB is reported that he would be interested to be joining Villa if Caen can agree the deal. This will definitely be an improvement on the full backs we have at Villa, I know we have 3 RB’s with Hutton, Elmo and Bree but we can develop him to play LB or Hutton or Elmo will leave and it will mean Bree and Guilbert will be a fair competition. We should go for him I believe as we need defenders big time as we have the worst defensive record in the top half of the championship. So bring him in I saw a few videos of him and he has got the potential to be special and he properly won’t cost a lot.

Tyrone Mings

Another defender we are linked with is Bournemouth defender Tyrone Mings to bring in on loan and no only us, West Brom are interested as well in Mings. He will be a great addition to Villa as he can play LB and CB, Strong, Quick and got experience in the Championship and he know Elphick as well. If we can bring him in it will be a massive boost to our defence and could give us hope to achieve play offs this season, It’s a perfect signing for us as I like the way Mings plays for Bournemouth with his struggles with Zlatan a few seasons ago so let’s see if we bring him in.

Darius Olaru

Another player we are linked is one of the hot prospects in Romania, Darius Olaru who we are interested in bringing him in. His agent has given the details about him and we have to wait to pt in a bid for him. But not only us but German giants Borussia Dortmund who are interested in him as well and Darius’s agent said the same to them as well. I haven’t seen much of him and I’ll have to look at a few videos of him to see what he’s like as he’s an attacker, a creative midfielder which is what we need as Grealish is injured still. We will see what happens if we bring him in but if Dortmund are interested in him and they are a top club in Germany, there’s no way he’s gonna say to no to them, let’s be honest but I hope he chooses Villa but highly unlikely.

Alan Hutton

Another player who might be going in January is Alan Hutton. The veteran full-back is linked with moving away in January with clubs in Scotland and clubs in the Championship are linked with bring him in. I got to admit that he’s been suspect in defence so far this season and we all know he’s not good enough for Dean Smith. He’s known for scoring a wonder goal against Birmingham City which was a moment to remember really. He’s been at the club for 7 years but let’s be honest he had good 2 years and his first 5 years were terrible. This will mean that Guilbert will come in for Hutton which sounds realistic but I would wish Hutton well as he’s 34 and his career is gonna over soon so we can give a good send off.

Hope we bring in more players before this window shuts because these 6 months are important UTV!!!

Wigan 3-0 Aston Villa| Support Dean Smith or don’t support us this season!

Gary Roberts

Aghhhhhhh this is a blog I didn’t want to do as this is more of a rant then talking about the game but this has to be mentioned because this is annoying me.

Most of the fans I know are ones that have sense as Dean Smith is trying his hardest to get rid of the dead wood that has been left by Steve Bruce and he wants to bring in the players he needed. Players like Jedinak, Whelan, Richards, Bunn and Hutton all need to either perform well or your out the door. Stop saying Smith out because 1. He’s been in the job for 3 months, 2. Our football will get better with more of his kind of players in Villa and 3. We still have hope that we can make the play-offs but if not Smith will fix the squad in the summer and we can kick on.

We are linked with a LB in Rico Henry hopefully a better player then Taylor as he was fault for two goals we’ve conceded from Roberts and Jacobs. Our squad is not good enough to make it to the play offs as most players are other 32 and not good enough to suit to the style that Dean Smith and a lot of those players need to take a long hard look at themselves as they let us fans and Dean Smith down.

Jack Grealish is badly missed as we lack the creativity and and we lack the desire to go forward as Tammy is lacking the service and he has to rely on McGinn and Hourihane, I know their both good players but they are not proper creative players. Kalinic had a good game as he produced some brilliant saves and he almost to saved a penalty in which it was tucked away to make it 3-0 to cap off an embarrassing performance. Now I do apologise if you get offended by what I said but this has annoyed me as some fickle fans out there are criticising Dean Smith and saying they want him out the door after 3 months which is pathetic. We will do well this season I can guarantee that, but we need time to gel with players in January and more in the summer to strengthen the squad.

Chester needs to be dropped and Hause needs to play with Elphick and rumoured that Roimane Sawyers will undergo a medical tomorrow so hopefully if it’s true with him to add creativity which is perfect. Things will get better and I am optimistic as if we don’t go up this season then next season will be fire UTV!!!

AVFC Transfer Roundup #3

Another one again because there’s still talks about Tammy’s future and also more players being linked with moving to Villa. So let’s talk about the latest transfer news.

Christian Fuchs

This story is weird but it can help us as we have one fit LB in Neil Taylor and we are rumoured to bring in Leicester City’s LB Fuchs to improve the depth in our squad. This is weird because I never thought we needed him to be honest as I thought we go for someone younger, but he’s played in this league before I think and he was involved in Leicester winning the Premier League and ,he was playing the other night in the FA Cup and he was alright but it was that twat Albrighton who cost the tie so we will see if we do get Fuchs.

Kiril Despodov

Another player we are linked with apparently an exciting attacker Kiril Despodov, The Bulgarian international is reported that he’s linked with us, Boro and Cardiff and this is an interesting story as, he can be the perfect backup to Grealish in terms of the creativity we’ve been missing in the last few games but it’s also a risk considering it’s reported to be worth £5 Million. It would be interesting if we do get him as that will be sorted as we need a CB, a striker to replace Tammy and somebody creative like Despodov but we will see.

Kortney Hause

As for this, we’ve finally signed Hause on loan from Wolves with an option to buy at the end of the season. This is obviously a much needed signing for Villa as the defence needs to be strengthen and we’ve signed a player with massive potential. He will give way for Chester as he needed to be dropped as he’s been piss poor this season. The ironic thing about this is that we’ve revisited the one defender we was close to get in the summer as Harold Moukoudi is back on our radar but also Dortmund are interested so we have no chance at all.

Tammy Abraham

Now let’s talk about someone who didn’t even turn up to training as he’s waiting to leave to go to Wolves on loan and get more money from them then what we and Chelsea will pay. Or he will stay and score goals to get us promoted and we will be happy and he’ll stay with us and we will love him. But let’s be honest the man has no loyalty to Villa let’s be honest, I don’t care if he kisses the badge or dry humps the badge because he will find that money is more important then loyalty to a football club. If he leaves then Maupay is the answer but are we willing to spend £15 million, not a chance or Kodija has to step up as a striker.

A lot to talk about but it will all be over and we can kick on now UTV!!

AVFC Transfer Roundup #2

Hello everyone and welcome to the AVFC Transfer Roundup, the blog that keeps you up to date with the players to link to move in or out of Aston Villa.

First we will talk more about Kortney Hause as Wolves are offering to raise our bid to £4 million or we will miss out as West Brom are linked with snatching him from us. I don’t know why we are delaying the deal as he was reported to had his medical with Villa so he should be ours soon. If we spend £7 Million for Kalinic but we should be spending £4 million or it’s too late to find a defender this January. Hopefully we will get a defender as soon as possible and hopefully it’s Hause before West Brom.

Nemanja Radoja looks like it won’t happen because his work permit prevents him to join Villa and Fiorentina have shown their interest in him but Doukoure is still on our radar which is good news. But one player we are interested in is Brentford playmaker Romaine Sawyers for a fee of £4 million. Dean knew him from is Brentford days and his Walsall days as well, and he knows the quality he has, unfortunately we won’t be able to sign him till the summer transfer window which is a shame but we will see if we will get him.

In other news Tammy Abraham is still on Wolves radar and we are trying hard to keep hold of him. I do want Tammy to stay and make his name as a Villa player in the future, Dean Smith has said Tammy will have to go with his gut if he wants to stay at Villa or go to Wolves so we will find out soon enough. Also another striker who was faded out by everyone is Ross McCormack. Dean Smith confirmed that McCormack will leave Villa on loan to Motherwell in which he played there before. I wish Ross good luck as Steve Bruce ruined his confidence completely and washed him out of the squad which was wrong for him but Ross does deserve a second chance in Villa or he needs to move away to get him back to normal.

There will be more transfer news soon and we will bring in more players in order ti strengthen our squad in order to get promoted UTV!!!!

AVFC Transfer Roundup #1

Hello everyone I’ll be delivering something new called AVFC Transfer Roundup that keeps up with players who are link to or away from Villa during the transfer window and we’ve got a lot to talk about this blog.

First I’ll talk about our first signing of the goalkeeper Lovre Kalinic who had his first interview and we’ve paid around 7 or 8 Million pounds for him and he’s a massive upgrade from Nyland. Nyland will miss the rest of the season with an Achilles tendon injury and Kalinic may play his first game against Swansea in the FA Cup or against Wigan in the league. We almost signed him 3 years ago but the deal never happened, but he’s now number 1 GK for Croatia and he will be a bargain this season. He’s got all the attributes for a GK as he’s 6’8 which is stupidly tall but makes up for his incredible reflexes and really comfortable when dealing with high balls which is something Nyland can’t do.

In other news Wolves defender Kortney Hause who is reported has had a medical last night and the fee is around £2 million. I believe this will be a bargain as he’s a very highly rated CB from Wolves. Big, Strong and he’s flexible as he can play LB or CB which is perfect. In other words it may a long term as Axel is currently injured and he might go back to United so it’s good for Hause as he’s got massive potential, alongside Chester and Elphick he can learn from those as well. We did play it safe as we brought Elphick back from loan and we are bring in Hause, which is better then bring in two different CB and hope they can adapt.

Image result for kortney hause

Other players linked with us like the Celta Vigo midfielder Nemanja Radoja which would be nice and also the Levente Midfielder Doukoure on loan but I want to see permanent players to help build Dean Smith a team for this season. Also the Everton defender Browning on loan which would be good as the 20 year old is looking for first team football, but he was at Sunderland last season and we all know what happened as they got relegated to League 1. Radoja would be the safe option as it’s rumoured that the Spanish media said he said yes to Villa, and we will have wait in a few days to see or maybe Doukoure and we can see if we get him permanently.

Last thing I’ll talk about is Tammy Abraham because there’s been a lot of drama as rumours of moving back to Chelsea to get the Wolves to pay £18 million for him. All I know is that it will be a massive blow to us but we have Kodija and Hogan at our disposal but they would have to step up. It would be a good signing for Wolves if I’m honest and he’s too good for the Championship as he’s the top goal scorer with 16 goals and I would love to keep him but if we don’t, then Brentford striker Maupay, sign him up. He worked with Dean Smith before and he would be a solid striker for us if we do get him to Villa.
