Aston Villa's modest but essential revival under Steve Bruce continued this past weekend with a 3-1 home victory against Cardiff City. Albert Adomah, Jonathan Kodjia and Rudy Gestede scored the goals as Villa overcame a setback at 1-0 up to dodge the swinging boots of the opposition and bag three more vital points.

Luckily for Villa, Jack Grealish getting booted up and down the field isn't enough to knock the team off course at the moment. In this week's show we talk about Grealish's performance along with those of James Chester, Jonathan Kodjia and others, and assess the overall afternoon's work. Next up is a trip to Leeds United, previewed briefly within.

    • Was at Aston Uni yesterday, looking at ways to bring the club and the university closer together. It seems like an obvious thing to do, yet for lord knows how long we have ignored our potential markets. At our obvious peril.  Every time he's over here he's meeting with fans, business officials, visiting universities. He's always looking for opportunities, trying to embed himself and the club into the community and increase our reach. I think he's absolutely brilliant and right now he's the best thing to happen to the club in decades.  Long may it continue. 
    • It seems from what I read that it could take up to 4 years before any punishment is dished out if it ever is - it's a long drawn out process and appeals can also be held so those hoping Newcastle miss out on promotion are going to be disappointed.
    • Maybe you're right in terms of outcome but this is fairly silly break down LOL. 
    • Here's one of my screens i put up the other day from my Torino save... on the right hand side there... I think i would like to do one that starts at Djurgardens, moves somehow to Copenhagen and onto Villa..... in just two jumps...  That would take a lot of seasons I think! Plus, in games like that, the job you want comes available but "its not the right time" to take it! annoying... then if you dont take it, that person could end up being in the job for years. Hmmmnnnn i think i like the sound of the challenge. Me i will start a new one tonight.... hopefully i dont get fed up at the start. I'll def be using my tactic i posted too!  Yeah i agree with Dante, start a new one @Villan_of_oz !  
    • Dennis Moore? Does he like lupins?
    • Maximum "respect" for the Donnie Darko gif
    • Hey bud, hope the hols were great. As for your Q, that's for you to decide... 12 games in and 7 points is not good but very very recoverable. Interesting situation there is, who's with you / who's against you. Situations like that really show who's who in the team.  Me though, i am all OCD about the starts. I like a million things done before I even press continue.  All this talk of starting new ones, I am thinking of starting one too. Might do a Djurgardens IF (of Stockholm) and work my way up to Serie / England Premier League. Maybe. Like Dante Lockheart said though, sometimes you like to start, then get drawn back into your old save. And Terjei said this too indirectly. It is a big effort, starting again. Especially when the time you;ve spent in the other savegame you dont want to turn your back on. With mine a good 11-12 seasons +   
    • Start a new one.        
    • more psychotic abuse from the tories again over Corbyn. Charming. full on american attack mode this. For someone apparently so far behind in the polls it seems remarkably unnecessary. Boris with the latest invective today. What a depressing campaign this is going to be. That Cosby chaps influence - or just the inherent nature of the party themselves anyway?
