Aston Villa will be looking to get themselves back into the winning way of things this weekend after a pretty poor loss to Peterborough United in the FA Cup.
The less said about the game last weekend the better probably for most Villa fans and now they’ll be hoping their side can bounce back with a win in the Championship this time out.
It’ll be a tough game, though, as they face Nottingham Forest who are looking to get underway in style under new manager Aitor Karanka.
Thinking of having a punt this weekend? Take a look at the coupons we’ve picked out on the Football FanCast Accy Show before you put your money down! First up, we’ve selected a Premier League goalscorer treble which offers terrific LeoVegas boosted odds. For those who like to spread the odds across the pyramid, we’ve also put together a very tempting fourfold of outright wins from the EFL. Check it out and be sure to let us know what you think!
Whilst we wait to see what happens there, though, Gregg Evans of the Birmingham Mail has offered a pretty significant transfer update via his Twitter account:
Elphick, Bjarnason, Bree, Suliman and Tshibola all attracting interest. Expecting some movement this month. Steer will stay, #avfc still looking to at two high-profile loans, striker the obvious priority. https://t.co/XFs4PopxKA

Indeed, there could be a fair few outgoings at the club over the coming weeks and, naturally, that has fans talking on Twitter.
Here, then, is the best of what has been said – and it would seem most Villa fans aren’t pleased with the story:
James bree , Bruce knows how to kill young talent and also knock there confidence, 35 first team games for Barnsley and can’t even get in our squad, very poor from Bruce

Cannot see any reason to move Elphick on, has been good in recent games, if we get promoted Terry will leave rather than play Chelsea, if we don’t go up Chester will leave as too good for this league, if either get injured we need a good CB which he is! #AVFC

If we sell Bree in favour of re-signing Alan Hutton in addition to selling Baker over Samba then regardless of ownership this club has learnt nothing!

Wise words as usual Wayne H! We buy / produce for the future, then sell them!

Surely elphick can't leave this month ?

Can't see how Elphick can leave, maybe Bree can leave on loan.

I don’t like this disruption in January I don’t see that we really anyone RHM and Hogan and Davis should be given a chance and make the mf contribute to goals has has been happening.

Elphick has to stay Terry won’t be at Villa next season. Bjarnason could be a top player at VP.
