  1. You mean Kodjia 13m and 40k a week & Tammy 1m loan fee and 75k a week, oh **** that was us showing we can't identify value early on
  2. Wasn't Pukki a free transfer to Norwich, so yes you are 100% correct there is value, it is just so difficult and I think a club needs a little luck. I just think (although other obviously don't like me commenting on Bristol City) that you guys are so so close to a promotion side and are just lacking the striker. Maybe I am wrong but just my opinion from watching you last season. Top 6 should never have been Derby's and they had a little luck but also scored goals when it counted
  3. I find the personal insults from idiots that don't have the ability to debate amusing. A real sign of personal insecurity
  4. I felt that for quite a few years at Villa. Great footballer, really liked the guy but never seems to be able to show his potential, maybe you guys can get out of him what we couldn't. I agree strikers become crazy prices but I think that is just what u have to pay these days. Adams was a snip at 16m. I would absolutely break the bank for Maupay, would love him at Villa, I would prefer to give Bees 30m for Maupay than you guys 30m for Webster. Gayle is semi affordable, Apparently Villa paid Tammy's 75k a week wages (no wonder we sold Villa Park) but 75k a week is 'only' about 4m a year. Personally I think it is worth the risk spending this amount on a loan player but I can see why a club's board of a club may disagree.
  5. How is that contradictory? My goal is not to see player do better at other clubs, it is to see my club do as best it can. To me that means every player has a price and I want the club to sell and buy to be able to put the best team out. The claim to Tammy is funny, shows the motivation behind your post. Tammy is a Chelsea player and was at BC on loan, just like he was at Villa on loan. Are Baker and Weimann Villa players? Is Webster an Ipswich player? Kalas a Chelsea player? DaSilva a Chelsea player? Most players have played for other clubs in their careers. If there are sufficient funds for a 25+ goal striker then why do you not have a 25+ goal striker in the team?
  6. No I am not. But I have watched him rip quite a few teams apart last season, including Villa and Bristol City and can see how good a striker he is for the Championship. Gayle's red card against Villa in the play off semi is a huge factor as to why Villa is now in the Premier League. Do you not think he is one of the best strikers in the Championship?
  7. I expect Gayle to end up at Fulham and I expect he will get them top 2. Today's media is saying 12m. Say 25m for Webster, your scouting team could easily replace him for 5m / 6m. Kalas at 8m shows that. That would leave 19m for Gayle and to easily cover wages and have a bit left in the kitty. To me that would see Bristol City at least get top 6. Also, if u signed Gayle then you will be stopping another Championship team from doing so and that will help the cause too. I do see that at 29 it is a big risk. Look at Ross MacCormack but I think Gayle is a completely different personality and would not turn out like that disaster
  8. The cost is the problem, you kind of need a guarantee of promotion if u are to take the risk and that may be a risk too much. But I think u guys are very close to promotion, just a striker away from it imo and he could be the answer
  9. Can't see how it is a superiority complex. I am a football fan like u and discussing football. I think Bristol City have a good team but are way too light up front and this is why you failed to get top 6 and promotion. You need about 75+ goals to go up and u got 59 last season. When you played us you should have been 2 up when we took the lead. That is not because we are in any way a better club it is because we were able to score goals. I don't believe that the Championship needs PL quality defenders to get promoted, it just needs a good defence. You have a PL quality defender and weak striker. If it was me I would cash in on the defender and buy some decent strikers. We may differ in what we want from our club's but I don't want to develop players for a few years to see them move on to other quality clubs and make it big. I want my club to succeed and if that means cashing in on players to address the weak areas I would be supportive of that
  10. Would you take Dwight Gayle. Totally proven in the Championship and u would expect 25 goals. If you could sign him for a year then he would be perfect but at 29 and with only a year on his contract he will want 3 to 4 years. Would it be worth the risk? If u got promoted you could afford to swallow the wages costs for the latter years of his contract. If he was any younger the price range would be too much but at 29 he is affordable. I suspect whatever team he signs for he will be one of the top scorers in the Championship next season.
  11. I have read that Bournemouth are looking for anything between 15m and 30m for Mings. Tuanzebe is an interesting one. He is apparently on 5k a week at Utd but has only 12 months left on his contract. Rumoured valued is about 8m, a bargain imo. The hard but is that to increase his value Utd need to give him a new contract. Villa is apparently offering him 40k+ and 5 years so if Utd have no intention of actually playing him in the 1st team then he could a bargain buy for someone,
  12. I love the fact that Villa were promoted. I follow the club and it is only natural to be happy to see your team get promoted. Top Tip: If you don't want to read my comments don't bother but you still read them and take the time to reply to me. There will always be football fans that don't have the maturity to be able to debate and chat with rival fans.
  13. I see City are apparently interested in Ake from Bournemouth. That could have a knock on effect on Webster. It could mean Bournemouth entering the ring looking for Webster or it could mean Bournemouth keeping Mings and making Villa want Webster a little more and the more u want the more you pay. As I have said many times, if I was BC I would cash in on Webster and buy a striker or loan a striker to get 25+ goals which should see u to promotion.
  14. It doesn't bother me in the slightest to admit Villa was in trouble and badly managed. It is a football club, I support them but I do not in any way feel responsibility with how AVFC is managed and nor do I have any issue recognising the truth as to how AVFC was and is managed. Yes we had cash flow issues which we could have avoided with more prudent fiscal management but we didn't. We approached Bristol City with a proposal to pay the money back early with more preferential financial terms. We needed help and found a solution to it which suited both Villa and Bristol City. Why the parochial attitude toward football. Its a game, its fun, we enjoy winning, we enjoy competing, we enjoy the transfer windows.
  15. Plus other factors mainly the law in China changing but as I have said many times on here Villa was very badly managed under Xia. Why are the constant posts to highlight that Xia's ownership of Villa was very bad. The theme of 'we are better than you' is not flattering, kind of like what many people on here say as the reason they don't like Villa Why do you wish you hadn't, it saved you money?
