  1. Past hour
  2. Ratings & Reactions: Barnsley v Villa

    A match that will be remembered for Davis' first senior goal.......... And paper balls.
  3. Steve Bruce

    In pure numbers yes he would need to lose all 3 but SB doesnt have a group of players who just got relegated after the worst season in the clubs history. Smilarly RDM didnt get 2 transfer windows, a full preseason and 30+ games before getting sacked. So given how much more time and money SB has had, even if he were on 15-19 points, i wouldnt feel he has progressed us anywhere near as far as he should have.

    It's not pointless when the OP was comparing the start of last season under RDM with the start of this season under Bruce. I agree there is context that makes the direct comparison difficult. I stated in my post I don't think bruce has started well enough. My only point was that if the next few games go well, which is by no means a certainty, you'd be hard pushed to argue that the start to this season is as bad as RDM's, context or no context, which again is what the OP was arguing.

    So you've moved the goal posts? It's not a great way to make an argument. You selected the criteria in which to compare two things and then just shoved another 30-odd games after it's been debated that in actual terms, Bruce's record could be significantly better than RDM's at the end of the initially selected criteria. If that's not fair, then I'm not sure what is

    Urgh. I do not understand how that man get's work. Just another Corden. Inexplicable. Still, that photo is promising I think
  7. Anyone Watching A Good Tv Show?

    I think Whitehall being in Good Omens has just ruined the show for me.

    Did you even read the post you quoted? If so how could you miss the very clear context of what it said? But never mind as I'm clearly hysterical.

    I saw Åtvidaberg live a few months ago. They were different level of awful and even less ambition
  10. Anyone Watching A Good Tv Show?

    Anyone else watching the new "The Vietnam war" TV documentary series? 2 parts in and it looks really good and interesting. It's 10 episodes and 1 aired almost every day from the 17th to the 28th. Yes it's not groundbreaking as there are countless VW documentaries, but I like that they are telling the story of not just the Americans, but also about the French and both sides of the Vietnamese. Just like they did in the "Indochine - a peoples war in color" that I thought was great.

    wha?
  12. Steve Bruce

    This comparison seems rather pointless, seeing as RDM only ever had the 11 games with us, whereas Bruce has already overseen +40 games. In that amount of games one would have hoped he'd have been a significant improvement, but sadly that hasn't been the case.

    Mentioned above.
  14. Pre-match thread

    Does this get shown on AVTV, for those abroad?
  15. Steve Bruce

    Yes well it's working as a few one here are uncritically parroting the same phrase.
  16. Jack Grealish

    I would say it shows the value of having a good "team" with everyone knowing their role vs having a good "player".
  17. NFL Fantasy League 2017

    Running back situation this year has f*cked me already.
  18. Today
  19. Villa Classics

    This is a well trodden path, and we've had many of these threads over the years (not to say I don't enjoy them). I think the obvious games will all get a mention. For the older guys, Bournemouth in the 3rd Division, Man U in the League Cup semi, Everton in 77, Barca 2-2, Rotterdam, Super Cup final, Inter x 2, Tranmere, Leeds in 96, etc etc. Most recently though, the FA Cup semi was as enjoyable a Villa moment as I can recall. Brilliant day from start to finish, a victory against Liverpool, and Slippy G (ruining his birthday, and the media hard on for him), and the feeling that when the Villa are good, there's probably nothing better in the world.
  20. Let's check in with Olof (Swedish Football)

    At home against bottom of the league Åtvidaberg next game. Really must get 3 points there to stop the rot. Both teams in terrible form but might be tricky as Åtvidaberg is desperate for a win to stay in the league.

    It's always shit?
  22. Steve Bruce

    Opinions on this thread are about as consistent as the weather.
  23. Steve Bruce

    I'm not Bruce's biggest fan at the moment. But the next 3 games are pretty winnable. So once Bruce has played the same amount of games as RDM had, he could have a record something like Played 11, Won 4, Drawn 5, lost 2 with 17 points. (of course he could have much worse than that, I'm being optimistic) Whether that's good enough is debateable. I'd argue probably not. But you'd be hard pushed to say it's not a significant improvement on RDM's
  24. Villa Classics

    Many of the aforementioned games had more significance, more profile and coverage but the one that always sticks in my mind was a midweek home game against Sheff Weds, we won 3-2, it was my 14th (I think) birthday and my old man had taken me (from Newport, South Wales). I was wished a happy birthday on the tannoy at half time whilst stood on the Holte and my favourite player at the time scored what I think turned out to be the winning goal (Townsend). A certain Regi Blinker also scored on his debut for Wednesday.
