  1. Just wondering if we might dip back in for Bielik or Bochniewicz this summer - both are currently shining for Poland at the Euro U21 championships. Bielik scored in both group games (Poland just beat hosts Italy 1-0 thanks to his reaction volley). I know Bielik link was a couple of years ago but he is really looking quality - albeit in midfield now where we're already well equipped. Bochniewicz who we were linked with in April has also had an excellent tournament so far. 6'4 and a real unit - would be ideal 4th CB if Hanley does depart. A side note - Grabara, the keeper is unbelievable. Liverpool signed him a few years back for 250k but if we're looking to bring in legitimate competition for Krul, on the cheap but genuine quality competition then a loan may suit all parties here. Very much a well-rounded sweeper keeper and a phenomenal talent. Went on loan to Aarhus in Denmark for second half of last season but was training with Liverpool's first team squad before that and got on the bench a few times in the cup. Will be a top, top keeper in time.

    Ricardo Remembers Part 1

    Thanks for sharing Ricky - it's almost unimaginable for us whippersnappers. My first game was aged 2 and a half, but the first one I have any recollectrion of is when I was 5 - My only abiding memory is of seeing the Villa mascot and being adamant he was waving at me. Shame really, as it was a 3-2 win at Villa park, with Daryl Sutch scoring the winner. https://www.11v11.com/matches/aston-villa-v-norwich-city-28-november-1992-20964/

    A couple of transfer rumours...

    Different ball game with VAR - massively beneficial to the smaller clubs

    Yeah 19 years old and 15 goals last season in the SPL. Sounds promising.

    New Kits - Why did you...?

    President Trump

    So he’s having yet another pop at Sadiq Khan. This time over the murder rate in London. It’s a good job that the USA doesn’t have a murder rate that outstrips any other developed nation by a multiple of ten, and gunmen shooting up schools every other day.... Otherwise people might see him as a populist bull****ter who says things for attention and effect and have no substance behind them. How do the thickos like jools keep lapping this stuff up when it’s so transparent?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't Villa **** a load of cash last season, and the one before, and scrape their way up through the playoffs, whilst we spent pretty much nothing and romped the league? You can spend 8million on Ricky van Wolfswinkel or sign Pukki on a free. Which strategy is better? The money is a complete misnomer - it doesn't matter what you spend, it is quality and how they fit the team.
  10. There is no away season ticket?

    Didn't we have some kind of get out clause with LeoVegas this year? Wonder if that's it? The club have been unusually quiet on kit news this year.

    Two for Pukki

    Anyone been to China?

    The closest we'll be to Hong Kong is Shanghai, and that's over 1000 miles away - 3 hour flight time - not really feasible this trip. We do plan to go back to see some over stuff that we won't get to this time, and Hong Kong will probably be part of that itinerary. Thanks for suggestion though.

    Onel signs for longer

    Really good to see the club rewarding the players who got us to the promised land and gave us a season for the ages!

    There is a fully decked out NCFC themed bar in Thailand. I forget where, maybe Koh Samui
