The Villa View

After what feel like weeks we've finally revealed our new logo and rebranding. With a massive thanks to @TheHolteTweets on Twitter and Michael Scrivens from towerandcrane.com we have a professional looking new logo, cover art and a video intro. 

It's something we're immensely proud of and an image that we're really happy to represent our work. The lion's mane is shaped to resemble that of a speech bubble to reflect our opinion based content. 

See the full reveal here:

You'll often see fan channels do a video about new transfers. "ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW IN 60 SECONDS"

We like this idea but wanted to make it our own. We started the idea by finding a name and as a bit of a joke picked 'Tea Brew' - "What if we gave the stats and figures in the time it took to make a cup of tea, that's roughly a minute"

And here we are.

All you need to know about Pierluigi Gollini in the time it takes me, to make a cup of tea.

Matt Lynch talks controversial front man, Gabby Agbonlahor. In the week when an interview with the striker emerged claiming he wants to get Villa back to the Premier League accompanied by a training montage Rocky Balboa himself would be proud of, Matt gives his reasons why he thinks it's time for Gabby to leave Villa Park.

    • We have 3 of them on the books with one in Australia 
    • I’m not so sure how good we think we are. I think whilst we have looked generally more confident, it’s still fairly fragile. As you won’t be surprised to hear, I’d be inclined to think that’s partly due to our playing style, which doesn’t allow us enough possession to control games. Consider that a gentle poke at the Bruce underbelly rather than a viscous attack with a sword . I’m sure his underbelly is big enough to take it  
    • maybe it was quite big. I might be wrong but it seems we are much better away from home in last few weeks when we are given space
    • True, like Terry & Kodja appear to be for us. On the plus side of that, our 2 didn't cost half as much, but it shows the minute both are out the squad, we just about held it together against Millwall. I fear we might not be as lucky away at todays opponents.  
    • Linked with Marco Grujic (Plop) on loan, along with Brighton. And Bruce has ruled out Grabban according to the Birmingham Mail
    • Depends but as we saw yesterday neves is absolutely key fir them, at blose they were not good at all and even blose were winning the midfield battle. He comes back scores and bosses the cm at Wednesday.  We have to wait and see but wolves have had that advantage as well
    • JT s going to be a guest on Monday night football for Everton vs Swansea  hopefully update us on his injury
    • Wouldn't that approach be better suited to a team that had a very dangerous striker but little else (like us last season with Kodija). Since we don't have a scoring striker our best bet should be to have as much ball as possible and create as many chances as possible for said striker and our other attacking players. IMO we have players good enough to do that in this league. A midfield containing Adomah, Hourihane, Snodgrass, Grealish, Green (when back) Lansbury... not all at once obviously should be able to do it against most opponents in this league. While having Jedi, Whelan or Onomah to do the holding role(s)   Relying on soaking up pressure and hoping to hit them on the break relying on a 19 y.o target man with rather poor finishing is both strange, overly cautious and unnecessary.
    • I agree Dave. There is a lot of Talk about Man City as the epitome of the perfect team or close to it. Pepe players a rectangle on the pitch and boxes teams.....but you have to have the quality of player to do it.....people see their skills, but their work rate is phenomenal too. our players run, but they run without intelligence or purpose.......its work, but in a laboured mental fashion. I just think offensively in particular, we are not as good as we think we are.
    • I agree TRO. We don’t have enough busy players in general, let alone up front. I didn’t like Mark Hughes when he was playing for the simple fact he didn’t play for us. But he’s exactly the type that would make a huge difference.
