  1. Past hour
  2. The MON years were brilliant and then it went downhill. Houllier, mcleish took away some of my passion for following villa but it was lambert who destroyed it. It came back a little under Bruce, but his football and the way he tried to split the fanbase meant I was never fully invested in him. The most passionate I've felt about villa in the last decade was last season. I'd given up on going up that year and then we just kept winning. Players like mings, mcginn, Jack and tammy made you fall in love with them. The streak, the playoffs with the penalty shoot out and then the final. As I say, easily the longest period in the last decade where my passion for villa came flooding back.
  3. Last night’s shocking decision may not have affected the end result as ManUre are on a rich vein of form, however the impact it had on our players, who were arguably playing well up to that point was devastating. the mentality of being in a relegation battle and then having every decision go against you must crush what little confidence there is. the ‘apology’ from VAR is as empty as it is useful. I guarantee we’ll have a penalty decision this weekend overturned due to ‘over-examination’ by VAR...
  4. The more I watch and listen to Roy Clark the more I realise that I am going to be broke this month.

    Not sure what the squad has to do with Purslow he doesn't scout, decide who we sign or train the players.
  6. This is where I’m at. If they sacked Dean, meh. Don’t really care. He’s a good bloke but he’s cost us points at times this season with his subs. The real issue is with the squad though. Last summer was an unmitigated disaster. That’s on Purslow and Suso.
  7. Wesley is better and wesley really struggled. I think initially I got excited with him, because he was a new striker and he seemed sharp. But we've just added another player to the squad not cut out for this level.

    Agreed. I was sure we would stay up after the first couple of months of the season, we competed well in most games. Things have deteriorated quickly, and only appear to be getting worse.

    I don't disagree too much. Its strange, I know I defend him lots but I'm not a huge fan of his. I don't think he's done a good job. I wouldn't be gutted if he was sacked and we brought in a decent manager and I don't think Smith will return us to the glory days. But for the first time, in my villa supporting life, I just don't feel, when looking at the squad and a few injuries, that the manager should be doing much better with them. I look at the keepers and the fact we are rotating 3rd/4th choice players. I look at the entire set of attacking players and those on the bench and I don't see players good enough for this league.
  10. I admire people’s optimism in thinking he’s a good player. But I’m not sure where it comes from. He looks shit to be frank. I think Wesley is actually better, and I don’t particularly rate him either
  11. Exactly. If the title race was still a race I’m sure a fair few of those losses would have been wins. They’ll be in the title race again next season. It’ll depend on how much Liverpool can keep up their dominance of this season
  12. I know I’ve been massively wrong about how effective VAR would be. But this is yet another example of the technology working, but massive incompetence meaning it’s used appallingly. I don’t know what they’re playing at
  13. Can we stop purchasing players from the Belgian league? They are all so shit

    Are we based on what exactly? It’s such a sweeping statement
  15. I think we need a manager like that to make us a mid table team in the PL. We then can attract bigger names. Look at how Everton got Ancelotti.

    We have the rest of this season where we’ve been performing better. We are getting worse and worse and worse. His hands are tied a certain amount. But he’s doing a really shit job at the moment.

    found out in every way. has to be removed when west ham win last game
  18. In fairness we DO have a long and consistent track record of making decent players crap because we force them into playing a game they are not used to. It's like buying a square peg, trying to force it into a round hole and then complaining the peg is "crap" !
  19. It’s no wonder they call our fan base fickle now is it?
  20. He really isn't. You do know that don't you ?
  21. Agreed DC. Just like bastion. Both panic signings just like carroll last year. We deserve everything we get for some poor planning and gambling. Suso and Smith both responsible and need ti be sacked. Suso and his lame contacts
  22. Firstly lets distinguish bigger and better. Ajax, Porto, PSG are bigger clubs than any championship club I'd say. Bigger than us as well. They are definitely better at this football stuff. Then you got challengers from time to time in Benfica, SCL, PSV, Fey. But that's not the point. The point is that these leagues aren't better than the championship. You don't become a better league cause you have a few better teams, when the rest are awful. So Eresdivisie or Premeira aren't better leagues by a country mile and anyone claiming that aren't watching them. Like you just said you didn't, no offence.
  23. I thought he looked sharp first couple of games. But he was a panic signing and it shows.

    I also find it a bit tedious to keep reading that we should do better with these players. Because what is that statement based on. I agree with the could part, he isn't performing well and doing a good job, although I think it would take someone special to get anything from this squad. What have we seen from our attacking unit to be able to say they should be doing better? Grealish is the only one out of the group who we know can actually perform at this level.
