Agree 100% Mike  George was very undervalued.  IMO.

How did we let the likes of Boateng, Southgate and Ugo leave us to join the might of Middlesboro??

I really hope this time we are sustainably competitive in the top division. Not the drain circling efforts at the tail end of the Ellis and Lerner reigns respectively. We appear much better set up off the park now at least.
Gibson was throwing money around , to the likes of Ravenilli , Juninho ( once spotted at villa)  and Zenden too .

Yet he seems to be moaning about the Villa flashing the cash

From the “other ‘football’ ” place
Joe Lolley’s getting involved on twitter.

“Typical of a small shit club”.
Looking  up Joe Lolley on twitter.
(Seems this was banter with his Blues fan footballing mate), but interested to read on top of being Villa, how socially engaged he is and not shy to say his piece.

“At 20, Joe Lolley was a university student paying to play football. Six months later he was in the Championship.

An interview on compassion, happiness and why living inside and outside the football bubble makes him different.”

I wonder if Deano is after him?

I bet it took him a while to delete his anti Martin O'Neill poists on Villatalk!

What’s the story?

Back in the day when he was still at uni, he was just a normal and fairly prolific member of Villatalk.  It would be like one of the younger members on here suddenly going from playing five aside with his mates to being a £10m footballer.

Like so many before him he squandered his God-given abilities on all night sessions with his mates at Red Cafe. Wink.

Thanks for the link. Really good/interesting article and he comes across very well. With the current crazy transfer  market Forest got a bargain getting him for £500,000.

Burnley goalkeeper Tom Heaton has turned down a contract extension. Aston Villa and Bournemouth are both interested and could make a move in the next few weeks. [@johncrossmirror] #avfc

Heaton is 7 years older than Butland, so I'm not sure I would be targeting him instead.

I’d be happy to sign whoever Neil Cutler thinks is best personally.  Like the impact Heaton had getting back in at Burnley & Butland was better than how Stoke performed all season.

Unless there is a clause to buy we’re not taking any more loans to help other teams out.

I am hoping that the club’s stance here is a nice sound bite rather than policy.  I like message it sends but...

...if we don’t take the player then someone else will, so there’s no gain there.  It could be a loss if a rival takes the player and improves as a consequence.

Secondly, taking promising players on loan is a great way of getting into their psyche/soul.  Take Mings for example (and Tammy), do you think they’d be publicly angling for a move (or rejecting Wolves) if they hadn’t been here on loan originally.

Apparently West Ham were having a look at Marvelous Nakamba last season. He's got good reviews as being a tough tackler and strong - would he get a work permit though? I'm not overly bothered about fees - it's gone silly season and anyone half decent looks like they're going to cost £10-20M. I'm more worried that we don't put too many players who haven't played in the UK together because they will take a few months to get used to the pace.

Apparently we would have to apply for a special work permit. This article is better than the Mail's - https://www.chronicle.co.zw/nakamba-on-villa-radar/

His International team mate looks handy too. Tinotenda Kadewere.
