  1. Past hour
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

    Dean Smith

    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.
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. Can we stop purchasing players from the Belgian league? They are all so shit

    Dean Smith

    Are we based on what exactly? It’s such a sweeping statement
  11. 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.

    Dean Smith

    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.

    Dean Smith

    found out in every way. has to be removed when west ham win last game
  14. 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" !
  15. It’s no wonder they call our fan base fickle now is it?
  16. He really isn't. You do know that don't you ?
  17. 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
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  21. I became a citizen in 2017, and i respectfully decline to let anybody (wife and mum included) who i vote for! Trump and the election, oh boy thats a completely different conversation!
  22. sorry mate, i was only joking, my cousin had told me some horror stories around certain parts of brum. I would def not carry an illegal firearm on me! my bad!
  23. I appreciate your willingness to engage in dialog, i think as a gun 'enthusiast' for wont of a better word i do get a bad rap! The biggest thing id like to see is a ban on bump stocks, these are the things the las vegas shooter was able to use to aid him in multiple killings, no true gun owner has a use for those. I def am agreement with the no alcohol policy (FL i believe has no such policy paging @Brumerican) apart from that mate its tough for me as i am responsible gun owner, so i do everything right and by the books. i dont have all the answers but more than willing to answer respectful questions like yours honestly!
  24. We start every match with at least 7 players that aren’t good enough at this level. Thats on him. I’d rather see him go than Smith.
  25. We went into the season extremely light up front. We put all our hopes on an unknown kid from the Belgian league and an injury prone kid who still is yet to score in the PL. We bought him and crossed our fingers that he’d be a PL goal scorer almost like Benteke had been. Then in January when we were already in trouble and our great hope was injured we went out and bought another bloke who’d never kicked a ball in the PL and expected him to save us. Where was the Darren Bent type signing? Did any of us seriously believe, except with the eternal optimism of a football fan that this signing was going to make a difference? Makes you wonder who is running this shambolic show.
  26. There’s no steel in our team, we are second to every ball. Our captain is a sulking spoilt kid when we need a leader that shouts at and or motivates the team during games and gets them to pull their socks up.
