This season in my eyes was never supposed to be a relegation battle. The squad he has assembled is too good to be anywhere near being relegated. To be 3 points off the drop at this stage of the season is unacceptable. He has completely failed in his job as Aston Villa manager. We're going backwards under him, in a season which was supposed to be about progression. I didn't expect us to finish in the top 10. But a comfortable 15-12th kinda season without the fear of being relegated is what I expected. He's had 2 and a half years to get this team organised and playing how he wants them to play, but we're looking more and more clueless by the game. We have no identity, the players don't look like they know what they're supposed to be doing and his tactical knowledge is just woeful. The guy has got to go.

    • Juve are tough to watch under Sarri, just not convincing at all. They'll still win Serie A but I don't see how he survives if they go out to Lyon in last 16. Would like to see Pochettino at Juventus.
    • I'd check the control set up. As in what buttons you have things mapped to If I remember GTA has different control mappings for different situations. So your camera controls aren't necessarily mapped to the same buttons when you're walking around as they are when you're flying a helicopter or driving a car. Sounds like maybe you've somehow mapped the camera controls to the left control stick as well the normal driving controls. So the left stick is doing both.    That might not be it, just a guess.
    • I am pretty sure we were after Cahill but Palace offered more money plus Cahill wanted to stay in London.
    • All it would take would be for them to lose at home to Fulham and Brentford win their last 3. It's far more likely than Leeds blowing up now which most of this forum still seems obssesed with and even expecting. I suspect though that WBA will grind out a draw v Fulham who aren't great defensively and win their last two. They've got some tidy footballers in their team like Matheus Periera and Krinomovic but their side reminds me of the one that came up under Mowbray, played o.k football but couldn't defend (actually sounds like us aswell!). They'd do very well to stay up unless Bilic used his connections to get in some old mates although I doubt they'll be convincing Ivan Rakitic to swop Barcelona for Smethwick!
    • Dwight Gayle is garbage. What a total waste of money that would be. He is also a total tool. Wes and Samatta are so much better than him and hopefully Kienan will be soon.
    • Last summer in the "summer transfer window" thread, I was banging on on a daily basis that we should sign Cahill on a free tansfer - right until the day he joined Palace and we couldnt sign him anymore. I even said he would have been a better signing than Mings but ideally for them to play together but got laughed at by everyone on here for even suggesting he was better than Mings. Think I got that Humphrey Bogart "get out" gif by 3 different people It was so so obvious to me that I was extremely baffled that no one else could see it. I really don't care if people are going to say I'm point scoring, it was just a stupid decision not to even try to get him. I honestly don't think we would have got relegated with a proper leader like him at the back, could have helped Mings develop into an even better player but 6 months in the Championship and everyone thought Mings was the finished article.  
    • Originally this was shaping up to me to be a similar game to that Sunderland monday night game in Lambert's first season, night where it all clicks and we win well to move clear of bottom 3. Reality is pretty different now but it wouldn't shock me if we actually put in a good performance now with the pressure off of being miles adrift. 6-1. Benteke hat-trick of own goals.
    • He's one of the best midfielders/attackers in the Championship. He plays wide. We'll be in the Championship next season and our wide attacking players are absolute dog shit which has been one of the main reasons our attack has been so shit this season. He is quite literally exactly what we need.
    • As an FPL fan, I always wonder what his ownership percentage in Italian Fantasy Football games is   Or when he and Messi were in La Liga together. If they have Fantasy Football then every single team must have them both.
    • Watched “can you ever forgive me”  tonight .... what a great film , never thought I’d be sitting here saying I enjoyed a film with Melissa McCarthy in it but she is great as is Richard E Grant who plays Richard E Grant . You get a few films that you’d happy watch over and over again and this one makes the list , wish I’d have watched it sooner
