  1. Past hour
  2. Please tell me when to stop laughing at SHA

    Papers making it out to be worse than it was. By all accounts it was the police who were utter clearings in the woods. Also I find it hilarious how blues and millwall are having a cosy up. Millwall fans stating blues are the club most like them in terms of the whole working class make up of the fanbase and how they are fearless like themselves. Blues fans lapping it up as if they have got the approval of their big brother.
  3. Steve Bruce

    Sorry, our right, their left. At the age of 45 you'd have thought I'd have worked out out left from right!
  4. The Spanish Football/la Liga Thread

    Missed the 2nd half Chris but saw him miss a sitter first half. Yes I agree strong, bags of pace and would be ideally suited for the Premier League
  5. The Championship thread

    I'm glad we're finally in a good enough league position to have a giggle at teams like Boro. Last season that was us..
  6. Glenn Whelan

    Yes. I see a lot of teams whose style of play is centred around 1 player collecting the ball and distributing the ball. If you stop this, you stop them playing. Having a DM having to deal with the threat 30 yards closer to your own goal when the attackers have momentum,is IMO outdated. if you look at yesterday's game we set up with a play to disrupt their style of play.
  7. Things that piss you off that shouldn't

    So you were banned from attending games...until you attended a game?
  8. Pre match buildup

    Different way of using pace though in my view. Fulham tried to use pace on the break from deep, Vassell plays on the shoulder and tries to use pace behind which I don’t think Fulham really tried or managed to do.
  9. Things that piss you off that shouldn't

    My grandad has some pretty pre historic views tbf. Abortion should be made a criminal offence being one of them.
  10. Pre match buildup

    I'd have agreed with you the day before yesterday, but I don't think there's a team in the league that are more about pace than Fulham. It could have been a one off I guess and obviously it'll be an away game, but I think it augurs well. I'm more worried about Jota and Adams to be honest - on paper, it's very difficult to see a defeat here - but this is the antithesis of a paper game.
  11. 17/18 Promotion Charge

    Fixtures look kind for the next month or so, capitalise and we are in the running.
  12. Things that piss you off that shouldn't

    Hooligan! We will need you next Sunday for the battle of brum.
  13. Ni No Kuni 2

    Good man! Me too. It'll go nicely with my Ni No Kuni special edition - and never mind the vinyl, how about that music box!
  14. Pre match buildup

    I agree but he is quicker than most and much of their play is focussed on trying to use that.
  15. Overwatch

    Might be a bit late to the party, but does anyone want to group up for some games? Getting a bit tired of solo-queuing. I'm not very good, but I don't instalock hanzo either Just add me on PSN: casek94, or pc: Eak#21110 if anyone's interested .
  16. Redevelopment of Villa Park

    Not VP related but this is probably the best place to put this. I’m told big plans are being made for substancial work at BMH. I posted (I think) a while back that the club had purchased a significant amount of land next to BMH. Well I’m told that the plan is to build a large extension to the current facilities. So much so that the current complex will become the youth set up facilities with the first team/squad moving to the new, separate but adjacent complex. I don’t have much more info than that at this stage and can’t seem to find anything in the media to support it but that is what I’ve been told. If accurate it’s a very interesting development in terms of the future of the club. I don’t know if this is contingent on promotion. Thought I’d share.
  17. Keinan Davis

    We don't have many players who will cut it in the premier league so little danger of losing anyone.
  18. Pre match buildup

    Looking at the Fulham performance, I'm less concerned about pace than I thought I'd be - Terry is slow and Chester isn't quick, but we have a shape that seems to deal wth pace pretty well.
  19. Your Favourite Restaurants

    My brothers don't like fish and if we are doing a posh family meal out, we usually pretend they're allergic to fish rather than just fussy. The restaurant usually are happy to do something else to accommodate them. Might be worth a try.
  20. Things you often Wonder

    Nah, they ain't too bad.
  21. Pre match buildup

    I think Vassell could cause us problems with his pace, we will need Whelan to have a good game shielding the back four and we can’t let him get behind our CB’s. In terms of them, they aren’t very good in the air at the back. We need to capitalise on that with lots of deliveries from open play for Kodjia and Davis and then from set plays bringing Chester and Terry forward. We should go to win.
  22. The Championship thread

    Yes I agree re Preston, especially given in contrast to Boro they’ve spent so little.
  23. Villa Kit 2017/8

    It's a fake.
  24. Glenn Whelan

    I am actually a fan of Whelan, he does the dirty work and plays his role (for me) but then there are times when the game gets streched, or we commit men forward... if we lose the ball and he is chasing back we are in serious trouble. He just cannot run anymore, like at all. It is hard to watch at times.
  25. The Championship thread

    Preston are a very decent team in their own right. Even now plenty are underestimating them. Boro in the bottom half is amusing me though considering what they've spent.
  26. Sam Johnstone

    He is having a very good season and if he keeps it up we will need to be promoted to keep him.
