The experienced CB who has just suffered relegation with Rochdale is looking for a new club and i think #YCFC would welcome his arrival, he’s a good no nonsense defender and has experience across L1 and L2. Image

About transfer news linking Marco Asensio to Aston Villa; I would like it to happen. The 27yo Spanish AM has worn the white shirt since 2014 and has been crucial & apart of all victories at the Bernabeu.
The left-footed Spaniard is one of the finest magicians I've seen

With his contract expiring this summer, the board has not made it certain to renew it, and himself feels it's time to part ways with the club. This comes in a time when Real Madrid is in a complete revolutionary structure to build a new generation of the squard & it's longevity
And for #AVFC this is the perfect timing for addition of a great talent & experience in the squard.
Personally I think Asensio's move to Villa park might come true given the connections Alemany has in LaLiga tracking back from Mallorca where Asensio's youth career begun

1/ Buenas, #AVFC 🟣🔵 fam. Mateu Alemany’s expected arrival is a massive statement, a significant step for the future + prosperity of the club + after Unai Emery, he becomes the most important person within Villa’s operations + NSWE. A thread from your friendly, neighborhood LME:
2/ In order to build a successful club, three pillars are fundamentally needed, no matter the size, financial or geographical status:

Economical management, operational excellence and an innovative, constantly evolving footballing vision.

Alemany’s arrival, from a footballing

1/ #AVFC 🟣🔵 fam. About Dibu Martínez’s future: He’s our keeper. Didn’t leave Jan when everyone thought so. Always fights for the club. Will pick himself up again after last wknd.

Any other chatter is useless conjecture that’s a dangerous, all-too-constant characteristic…
2/…especially after a bad run. We have to do a better job at ignoring noise and focusing on the important things such as 3pts against Everton, growth under Emery, top half finish and Europe. That’s it. Anything else is noise.

This is my mentality: if you wear the #AVFC 🟣🔵…
3/…shirt, you get the undoubted support and/or constructive criticism in order to help us improve.

That’s it. Anything else is unnecessary toxicity.

#AVFC 🟣🔵’s fanbase has a fantastic, dedicated, good-natured, smart group of content creators. I know because I have joined them on shows plenty of times. It’s a shame that our club helps this kind of toxic nonsense w/ great access instead of nurturing our own.
It’s also the continued frustration of why we don’t have an official Spanish-speaking account. That’s a Villa community desperate for representation 🟣🔵
Overall, I think PL clubs - not just Villa - should do better w/ local, production talent. Focused and obsessed w/ original content, which is totally fine, but they need to do more, way more to create stronger bridges w/ fanbase creators. Overall, it forms a healthier community.

1/ Alright, #AVFC 🟣🔵 fam. I’ve calmed down (and doing a hit on ESPN right after the game was not easy, let me tell you 😭) Here are my thoughts. They’re basically echoing Emery’s presser but I’ll give my own added notes. On the game itself, I thought it was the perfect example
2/ of how far we have come since UE arrived and how much more work we need to do. Positives are simple really. The two goals showed us that. There is a great sense of momentum when we have the ball and it’s showing. The second goal especially.

Individually: Watkins, Coutinho,
3/ McGinn, Moreno (as the game developed), Kamara and Durán (once again, I mean this boy has to start soon) demonstrated quality going forward. Bailey remains that potent piece of dynamite. He just has to be more disciplined.

#avfc just as food for thought as how important it was to move Ings on. In terms of amortisation he was with fees etc around £25m + 10% = 27.5m over 3 years so 9.1m a year plus 6.2m wages = 15.3m per year.
#avfc last year’s turnover was 182m + declared 36m in lost revenue in accounts = 228m. Therefore FFP will be that 70% of that can be spent on wages and amortisation. So approx £160m…..
#avfc that means that one player, Danny Ings was around 10% of our entire FFP budget!!! And wasn’t playing and didn’t feature in our plans.

24hrs to go. Still absolutely calm about the situation. Happy to totally back Emery’s judgement. I’m sure if the right player was available, we’d have added more than 2 players this window. A thread. #avfc
Couple of musings - Emery has spoken a lot about confidence and mentality. Having a smaller group and showing confidence in the group that remains may be psychologically the direction he wants initially. #avfc
He has also spoken about a “family”. Again getting rid of those that are not going to be part of the family may be part of his thinking to have a tight close knit group #avfc

I was recently asked to look into the defensive 6-2-2 that Unai Emery has successfully deployed against Tottenham Hotspur & Brighton & Hove Albion.

A short thread:

#AVFC Image
Here is an example of the defensive shape.

Aston Villa drop into this shape when the opposition has controlled possession around Villa’s defensive third.

The reasons for this?

Teams generally create chances by going around (cross), over or through (runners in behind)…. Image
When defending CROSSES, Villa can be aggressive in their pressure (to stop the cross) as they can be confident in having numbers back to defend their box.

The 6-2-2 can result in as many as 7 defenders inside the Pen Area.

Minimal space for the oppo. (Too many bodies = chaos?) Image

#CelticFC 2021/22 accounts cover a season when they regained the Scottish Premiership title under new manager Ange Postecoglou and also won the League Cup, but were eliminated from the Europa League after the group stage.
#CelticFC swung from £11.5m pre-tax loss to £6.1m profit (£5.8m after tax), as revenue rose £27m (45%) from £61m to £88m and profit on player sales increased £20m from £9m to club record £29m, partly offset by £25m (29%) higher operating expenses and no repeat of £5m insurance.
Main reason for #CelticFC revenue increase was match day, which rose £22m (107%) from £21m to £43m, due to the return of fans to the stadium, while commercial grew £3m (11%) to £32m in a more normalised trading environment and broadcasting was up £2m (18%) to £13m.

Manchester City’s 2021/22 accounts covered a season when they won the Premier League for the fourth time in five years (their sixth title in 11 years) and reached the semi-finals of the Champions League and the FA Cup. Some thoughts follow #MCFC
#MCFC chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak noted that it was also the most successful financial year in the club’s history with chief executive Ferran Soriano highlighting that City broke the club records for both revenue and profits.
#MCFC pre-tax profit improved from £5m to £42m, as revenue rose £43m (8%) from £570m to £613m, thanks to recovery from COVID and the return of fans to the stadium, while operating expenses only increased £11m (2%). Profit from player sales was almost unchanged at £68m. Image

1/ Unai Emery's arrival to #AVFC 🟣🔵 is an incredibly exciting time. I've already talked about his resume and tactics (see below) so this thread takes the proverbial microscope and looks at specific areas where I think he - alongside his staff - will help
2/ For a VERY long time now, Villa have been a team with either no identity or an inconsistent one. Most recently, Dean Smith's situation was a tough one because he was transitioning a Championship squad to the PL, with a heavy, heavy reliance on one player (Jack Grealish)...
3/...while Steven Gerrard's side was a group of talented individuals playing in the dark. Emery's obsessive focus on detail and his need for players to share this obsession will be an immediate wake up call for everyone. Their game's IQ will rise because of it. So straight away,

Some thoughts on Steven Gerrard & #AVFC.

Gerrard had a successful spell at Rangers playing with attacking full backs & a narrow front three. This style led him to the league title (undefeated).

His narrow, defensive mid block (flat 4-3-3) also proved effective in Europe.
As his spell at Rangers was successful, I assume he tried to replicate that at Aston Villa.

He first game - up against a Brighton team who look to dominate the ball - was the perfect opponent for Gerrard to implement his defensive shape, whilst offering a threat on transition.
This positive result combined w/ the new Manager bounce led to 4 wins in his first 6 games.

Results became slightly more inconsistent and it became apparent that the full backs did not have the creativity required to execute the game plan. The tactical role of the midfielders
