HE'S READY:

Ashley Williams, Kevin Mirallas, Cuco Martina and Nikola Vlasic have been told to train away from Everton’s first team squad by Marco Silva.

Classic AVB move here from Silva. This will end well.

xps Haven't Stoke signed Ashley Williams?

groovypanda, Thursday, 2 August 2018 09:40 (one year ago) link

fuck me, didn't realise that old football hooligan Ronnie Jepson was at Cardiff with Warnock. I once saw him making an absolute pissed up prick out himself on a train and would say he is a deeply unpleasant and violent idiot to say the least. Welcome to the Prem lads!

Shouldn't the EPL be mentioned somewhere in the title? Or has the EPL just swallowed football whole? (Silly question)

Father Ted in Forkhandles (Tom D.), Thursday, 2 August 2018 10:00 (one year ago) link

I can't believe Cardiff are starting a Premier campaign with Lee Peltier at RB and Danny Ward amongst the forwards, no wonder Warnock will gone by October.

calzino, Thursday, 2 August 2018 10:05 (one year ago) link

Warnock is one of these managers where the same backroom and same garbage players follow him about from club to club like a bad smell. Yeah he's had loads of promotions and I used to love him when I was a kid (early 20's tbf!), but it is probably a good thing that his crude methods are just not good enough for the Prem.

calzino, Thursday, 2 August 2018 10:14 (one year ago) link

Literally everything about Cardiff is unpleasant and I hope they go straight back down with the lowest point score in history.

Lots of chatter about Spurs bidding £30m for Lewis Cook, who is exactly the sort of player we could do with and one I can see really improving under Poch.

Joe Hart + Ben Gibson look done deals to Burnley. Both of them passing Dyche's stringent criteria for what makes a solid Burnley signing.

we've now beaten 3 decent top tier Euro sides(Lyon,Bolagna,RB Liepzig) 3-1, 2-1, and finally 3-0 just now. We're ready!

Adama Traore signing for us this morning. Domagoj Vida signing for...somebody?...this week. Love this jigsaw we're building.

the Joao looked at Jonny (Noodle Vague), Monday, 6 August 2018 09:28 (one year ago) link

Middlesborough seem to be having a very FFP friendly window, probably watching the QPR situation. I expect us to be linked with Caveleiro .. again, when this is confirmed.

calzino, Monday, 6 August 2018 09:50 (one year ago) link

That seems 50/50. I don't think we *need* to move Cav on but obviously the speculation won't go away. My guess is - not this window. But we'll see, there's no sentiment in our transfer policy now.

the Joao looked at Jonny (Noodle Vague), Monday, 6 August 2018 10:02 (one year ago) link

i think if our Limbombe deal truly is dead, and he 's off to the Geordies, then there will be another attempt to sign Cav.

I've got a friend who works at ASDA and used to be a smack-head who has this very complex theory that celebs + royals gravitate towards Aston Villa because their name evokes some kind of grandeur and splendour that is probably very missing from the area.

If this were true surely they would all just be palace fans

there is something a bit more "continental" + "progressive" and reaching outwards with your brand about "Aston Villa" whilst also sounding conservative at the same time, but without admitting you love mountains of dead disabled/poor ppl's corpses and tax avoidance schemes, cos you are so nice and love drinking Columbian coffee. QPR sounds like death squads!

This sounds like crap insofar as Prince William's generation goes; one of the reasons why he decided to support Villa was because so few of his peers supported them.

This is indeed fascinating because, as I'm certain I've mentioned here before, one notable scene in Henry Green's "Living" is when two of the characters go to watch an Aston Villa game.

Aston Villa smashes club transfer record to sign a Brazilian striker for £22m from Club Brugge! Adjusted for inflation I guess cause I'm pretty sure Darren Bent was always reported as having cost us £24m or thereabouts back when? Or was that 18m with add-ons? Memories :)

I think possibly I have noticed Wesley as a name while clicking through other teams' CL results on my FM19 career but then again possibly not, who can say. youd better believe i'm loading that shit up right now though to find out how good he's gonna be for us in 2023. anyway ive got no intention of letting my own ignorance sully this glorious moment, we're back baby and we're spending irresponsible sums of money on unproven quantities same as the rest of you. A REAL PREMIER LEAGUE TEAM, JUST DOESN'T FEEL RIGHT WITHOUT THEM :) :) :) :)

Hmm, it seems there have been about 40 consecutive posts about Aston Villa on this, the Premier league thread. I'm openly weeping over this discovery, although also it is off-topic because this thread is for the 2018—19 season

Imago is correct that I am an extremely good guy. I 100% knew who Wesley was before we signed him and all. Huht

Dadjokke (Sgt. Biscuits), Thursday, 13 June 2019 18:49 (four months ago) link

xxp

that £14m on Ross McCormack might seem like wise and careful speculation next to FC ILX splurging £20m on Jack Clarke. I know different leagues and all that but he's looked like a bang average L1 player every time I've seen him and I think it is fair to be judgmental - even towards such a young one - he looks like the consummate flatter to deceive overrated young dud and a complete arsehole to boot!
