  2. Transfer Speculation Summer 2017

    Have Leeds signed jansson yet? He looks like a real warrior cb. If Newcastle are willing to sell gayle I'd go for him
  3. Paddy's "Things that cheer you up"

    i knew I would regret this.
  4. Villa Kit 2017/8

    Yellow for me is horrid! Would like to see something different. Like a nice navy or browm. (And by different no I don't want another swamp green one!!)
  5. Steve Bruce

    What I've noticed this season is that we generally get worse in the second half. I don't know who does the halftime team talk, but I wish they'd stop!
  6. Steve Bruce

    Thanks Stevo, it's all about opinion as you say. So I won't rise to the challenge!
  7. Things that piss you off that shouldn't

    On a work day I can barely drag myself out of bed when the alarm comes at 7:30. On a bank holiday I jump out of bed at 7 fresh as a **** daisy.
  8. Business Ethics

    Would you knowingly destroy another person's business if you could increase your own sales by 50%?
  9. General Election 2017

    Where did I say that?
  10. Baseball 2017

    Down goes Thor... ..Starling Marte suspended half the season for PED, proving that there is no cellar for stupidity.

  12. What you eatin' there then?

    I may have missed a joke here, but why would a bladder op be a mistake?
  13. What you eatin' there then?

    A spaghetti dish with sauteed portabello mushrooms, onion, cherry tomatoes, black olives and basil pesto, mixed up with olive oil, garlic and white wine, dash of salt and a crack of ye olde pepper mill. A bottle of cheap Argentinian Malbec to wash it down...game set and match.
  14. Arsenal

    The result flatters them too. A couple of absolute sitters were wasted by Spurs. Both sets of fans can do one, IMO, such arrogant moaners.
  15. Full Movies On YouTube

    An underappreciated sort of masterpiece. Great family film. Robert Redford's directorial debut, and there are many familiar faces in it. Enjoy!
  16. The VT Baby club

    We had our 12 week scan today and everything was apparently looking really good. It's a mixture of joy and relief. So exciting to see the baby kicking around in there. It's been great to see my missus start to feel better as well, she was never physically sick but she felt like garbage for weeks. Also just announced it on facebook with #PiratesAreWild and this image
  17. Villa Kit 2017/8

    I really don't see how they can improve on this year's kit. I know it's just simple but it's an all time classic. I'm wearing it as I type this. I have plenty of faith in Under Armour to give us something nice.
  18. 17/18 Promotion Charge

    In the thread Limpid has made about next season position, I have voted for a finish in the playoffs. That prediction is ridiculous, given our sheer lack of consistency, game plan and cohesion under Bruce. However, it is a vote from the heart not the head as I want to think we will pull it together somehow. I said "want to think" but there are definite alarm bells continually ringing about us. As crap as we have been, we don't belong in this division, it is a matter of time before we make it back up, even if Bruce doesn't see out next season at the helm. We have spent so much money, an embarrassing amount really for the Championship and will most likely spend again in the summer but despite the alarm bells I'll be behind Bruce with my fingers crossed that next season we hit the ground running from the off and as best as possible boss the division. We won't win it, there are much more capable teams in the Championship and the might of the relegated premier league teams to contend with, but my heart is winning over my head. Even though my head totally agrees with many anti Bruce / up the creek posts I read. Delusion maybe. To think of us being a force in this division we are so far from that, what Brighton and Newcastle have done. If it gets even worse under Bruce Tony is bound to chop n change just like he did with RDM, his investment and pride is at stake regardless of our wants. Who knows who we could even tempt to come here , that could boost us up to the top or near the top. So many variables so many ifs and buts, all from a starting point of utter sh--. But, stupidly, I believe... that Bruce can pull it together next season. I'm likely misguided but my glass is half full, even though the other half was knocked over my shoes by Bruce this season. The worst that can happen is I end up massively disappointed and frustrated, well no change there then supporting our lot is there. Fed up, staying optimistic just as sick of there always being something wrong with us and this , almost a curse on us. Has to lift sometime. Ah well.

    You are dead right ! As you say it's all opinions but I saw all those games and in none did we produce more than a single half of a decent performance (IMO ), and I wouldn't say we managed that much in three of them. Brighton away in particular is assuming near mythical status - with some - but I watched it back a week or so ago and really we play well for the last half hour. I can add others where we've done well in bits, Wigan away being my ' pick' because it said it all - only when he made the subs and switched to an attacking style did we come alive- but the approach was quickly buried.
  20. Steve Bruce

    I think the concern is less to do with 'turning it around' and more to do with us not putting in one single decent convincing performance. Its the performances that are causing the massive disenchantment, and most would say it's not unreasonable to have had some - even one ! - in all those games. Pretty much every side we've played has done so ! Against us !

  22. Things that piss you off that shouldn't

    Good quarter of a bottle of Nytol will do the trick and give some cinematic dreams
  23. Things that piss you off that shouldn't

    That I am awake at this unholy hour and I'm as sober as a judge. Night feeds are shit.
  24. General Election 2017

    You honestly believe that? Really?
  25. Steve Bruce

    Get Harry Redknapp in a) he is a brilliant attacking manager 2) it would be so funny to nick him from blues just when they thought their future was brightening up
