    You two are talking at crossed purposes. @Finney Is Back contention is that before Villa even had discussion regarding new owner investment a deal was there to be made. Due to the (slow) speed of negotiations Villa were able to gain new investment and the opportunity to sign Grealish cheaply was missed.

    I’m not.... I’m talking about 2 very, very similar situations of 2 players both available for £25m who had two specific clubs after them. One of those clubs managed to make an acceptable bid by June 20th. The other club didn’t make an acceptable offer until second week of July (despite starting talks for that player well before the other club). The acceptable bid was not made until they got word that investment was coming into the selling club. The same club who didn’t think the player was worth £25m before they learnt investment was going into Villa thought the player was worth £35m two months later however.

    Fingers crossed the chairman has learnt his lesson (or better still just get a DoF in please Daniel)

    No you are missing the point, the deal was agreed before the new owners came on board. The point i am making is that there have been a lot of comments from fans about Levy unwilling to pay the 25 million that Villa wanted for him, some say we never even tried. Neither of those comments were true, i am not trying to say Levy is good or bad but the truth is that he did go for him and agreed the deal.

    It was agreed when they had started talks but not yet agreed to invest. There were 6 weeks before then to do that deal.

    We will have to agree to disagree like we did say last time, BUT every time i hear SOME say Levy WOULD NOT pay the 25 million that Villa wanted i will point out that is just not true.

    You are right.... he actually would’ve even paid £35m for him.... just not £25m in June for some strange reason?

    Yes, though only one of those are first teamers. Need replacing more of our squad players with home grown players too such that we have more freedom with players closer to the first 11

    Their players who have played way too many games for us now as viable first team options which says a lot

    The point is, Levy agreed a £25m deal and then waited day after day after day after day after day after day after day after day after day after day after day after day after day after day and the deal was taken away.

    That is Levy's mistake, he is not decisive.

    How do you all know this stuff?

    Seriously you guys must either know some top notch people in the club or have access to people that do.

    I keep reading how Levy did this, that it the other and I’m amazed that we have so many well connected people on here

    Keep it up guys
