Aston Villa Review: Episode 171 - Villa mourn Graham Taylor

Sign in to follow this  


Aston Villa's recent Championship form has taken on an unnerving familiar character in recent weeks, and continued to disappoint with a woeful 1-0 defeat at Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday. In this week's show Chris and Steve discuss that game and Villa's run since Boxing Day, so if you're expecting positives then you'll have to look for a while.

But football's not the be all and end all, and last week we lost Graham Taylor, who managed the club for two spells and became a huge part of the Villa family. It's only right that we pay our respects to a wonderful man who was able to maintain his humanity, his humility and his dignity in a game that seems to rob others of all three.

    • I imagine the Serbia one with the Russia flag in the stripes will bring some controversy 
    • Puma really going the extra mile to make their jerseys something special for each team.    
    • I got accosted in Gunsan, South Korea by a Mormon. I listened to him politely and then he told me his name was 'Elder Trumpet'. I laughed heartily, directly in his face, wished him the best of luck and then crossed the road to get away from him. 
    • Well err yeah, he did get a little bit wayward towards the end there @snowychap  Tiger aside, I thought it was a good finish to a decent tournament. Shame  Stenson dropped off, but you could just tell Rory was back to being Rory.   I'm not 100% convinced he can't get 'fully' back, even if only for a couple of years @Michelsen  It's early days, but I don't think physicality is going to be the issue. I found this interview with Rory from Jan of this year and There's some interesting quotes from him. if his back holds up, I think it'll come down to whether can he mentally become the player he was again, rather than physically.  This was after a practice round with Woods back on Nov.    https://tinyurl.com/ybyyfa98  
    • They need to get rory in to it more, at the moment its the other 2 and him 
    • So how many teams are strapped or hampered by FFP right now, apart from us ?....open question?
    • I’d be amazed if we got as much as £8m for hogan - I’d say £4m more realistic .
    • Not so much fizzled but went OOB with his ball at 16 when he carted it left off the tee. Actually, I think his round hit the buffers when his tee shot on 14 came up short right after he'd just birdied three of the last four (and had shortened from 50/1 to 5/1).
    • Fair Comment.
    • not arguing Jim, but Cardiff and Fulham have had some near misses too. Derby and Bristol have dropped off and Sheff Utd are just also rans.....Millwall and Middlesborough are now finding form. The only team thats been at it from the start is Wolves as we all know.
