      haha i read a little about this. this is the second time the Wang group has had to deny a football club takeover.
      they have a team themselves in china and i beleive an article stated that they sponsor the chinese football league.
      So .. richest man in china + football sponsorship = richest man in china likes to …owns a football club …. and pays!!! for football sponsorship!!!! .. wait finkle is einhorn .. einhorn IS FINKLE!!!

      richest man in China wants to buy a football club in the premiership ..

          I find it hilarious given what has happened down the road anyone would want Chinese taking over at Villa. their fortunes can disappear quickly if they get on the wrong side of the government and their economy is not stable.

          However traditional Villa would appeal to the chinese who are into their history big time.

      Norwich seem to have some of the better wingers in the league, Pilkington, Snodgrass, Redmond, Hoolahan. If it was true, doubt it is, but if it was, both him and Bertrand would make a strong Right side. Definitely has been their biggest threat in most of their games, including against Villa.

    In this window i only want players who have or are playing in the Premiership, we need experience whether its young or old experience. We should no sign anyone from abroad who is not used to a) the culture b)the weather c)the premier league.

    I hate cliche’s but we need players who are going to hit the ground running

        Definitely possible, just hope it’s not one of those “they’ll take it out on us for what happened before”. Mirallas was their only good player so their moral’s down and they do have a few more injuries. If we beat West Bromich, I can see Villa having the confidence to beat Everton.

        False position??…?? Definitely not…!!! When they have a fit full side they are quality….. Howard, Alcaraz and Stones at the back were awful last night and Lukaku will be a big miss (although of late he’s been lazy and not scored in 9)

        Funny oohah but I was thinking about a Yohan Cabaye type. He was only 4 or 5 million. You would think Lerner could spot the attraction even just from a financial perspective. Wishful thinking I guess but you would think that must be within our means.

      I think these signings work better in the summer so a player has a whole season to settle, 3-5 months to settle into the football and the country is a lot to ask and could shatter a players confidence imo.

        That does make sense but to give a push, we need someone in midfield, not just a creative player, but a strong midfielder and I just can’t see anyone in the EPL that would join that can make that difference. Unless you know, Sylla’s finally going to be used as the DM he is.

    The best rumour for me is we’ll get that over the hill mug from Norwich as a deadline signing, with nothing else.

    Read between the lines, lads, in what Lambert’s saying; there’s nothing in the English game, because Lambert/Lerner has realised lower league shit just simply doesn’t cut the mustard in the Prem, straight from the off. They need nurturing.
    And we won’t pay the wages that even lower league players expect with a move, anyway.

    As for European players, they won’t get up to speed quick enough, as we saw with our best signing in Benteke.

    The plus point here is, that whoever makes the decisions, might have actually seen the light, at long last!

    The downside is, we might rely more on the academy players, which will prove to be yet another poor/cheap option.

    Reading rags from the states, it seems a lot of stories bubble up based in mockery. Not just for villa, but anyone trying to compete without the excess.

    Tough to ignore the “hot model wants you” article message when you know you’re probably going home alone. Keeping the faith though. The turn is coming, imo. Either up or into a brick wall.

    Anyone else think Gabby could fill that 10 spot? Holds the ball well, pace, vision. I know he’s a wide guy, but really think he could be better in the middle. (and…time for another IPA)

      I think it’s pretty obvious the club have no ambition other than to stay up. As we are virtually safe now then what’s the point in spending in any players. Lerners happy that Wev avoided relegation again on a shoe string. It will be exactly the same next season totally pointless

      Not far from me,its great especially when the whole of the holte is singing in unison. You have the guys at the top of the lower holte behind you singing throughout the game, I think the atmosphere will be great tonight.

      I expect it to be a draw as the last 4 results reflect.

      My main gripe with the Lower Holte is halftime, don’t even bother trying to get a pint or a pie.

      Close to the action obviously, but I prefer upper now to get a better strategic view.

      It’ll be better than my ticket for Saturday where you have to guess where the ball will come back into view when kicked above head height lol !

      Fancy four points from the next couple.
