Aston Villa Review: Episode 169 - Villa win to extend unbeaten run

Sign in to follow this  


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.

    • But could he provide the spark we need? I think so. 
    • Shame the lad has had so many injuries, because he was obviously quality as a youngster.  Don't think we'll miss him and doubt he'll be anything but an average championship midfielder.  No ill feelings towards him whatsoever. 
    • The Birmingham Mail diasagrees with Nixon, but don't let that stop the manager bashing http://www.birminghammail.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/aston-villa-transfer-rumour-conor-13502578 Hourihane has been in and out of Steve Bruce’s team since arriving from Championship rivals Barnsley in January. But the Birmingham Mail understands that Villa were keen to keep Hourihane even before his winning treble yesterday.
    • If we need another centre half, what about Aden Flint?  Snatch him before he moves to the unwashed and piss Arry right off too .   Not too fussed by Snodgrass, but Gallagher could prove useful to us surely. 
    • I think we decided tbfh    It's for the best. I haven't seen many players as out of his depth as he was sadly.
    • I think the Pride Rewards scheme was supposed to start initially for the start of the season, then for the start of August, the last thing I can find on any of the clubs main communication channels is from the 3rd August which said it would start "next week" - there are some good ideas in it I think, and some good ideas in a few areas at the club - but this season has come a little suddener than they seem to have prepared for.  
    • You see the same thing when it came to very loud and verbal Corbyn supporters on here when it came to the Charlottesville thing. Usually they are the first to judge people when it comes to "not condemning" fascists, however when it comes to Corbyn condemning one of his friends in Maduro who is murdering protesters left right and centre the focus goes to "Corbyn shouldn't have to condemn anyone, he's not Maduro". It's not always easy to try to convert the choir, but I think you are making a good case Blandy. Corbyn talks to IRA, Hamas, socialist militias, M-19, Hezbollah = good! He's engaging.  Corbyn doesn't want to talk to Maduro or comment = good! He shouldn't have to condemn something he's not part of! Headscratcher? In fact, when Trump condemns all side in a violent brawl it's bad. When Corbyn said “What I condemn is the violence that’s been done by any side, by all sides, in all this. Violence is not going to solve the issue." when a socialist government is murdering demonstrators it's okay, though. It's extremely hypocritical. 
    • I don't think you can yet can you?  
    • Have you spelled that correctly?
