  2. I've been thinking about this a lot lately, especially after browsing Villa twitter. I know that place is an absolute cesspool, but there's a running theme of our fans getting spoilt by our good form this season. I'm seeing it all over; talk of some players not being good enough, despite us residing in the top six half a season after avoiding the drop by one point. People saying anything less than an EL spot this season would be a failure, considering the general consensus originally was an upper bottom half finish with no relegation concerns would be a successful season. We're in da

  3. Dad passed yesterday. Mum slept through her symptoms and seems ok so far. I was allowed to see them, the first time since April. Stayed with him overnight on Thursday. Got to say goodbye. There's been tears, but it's easier to be philosophical about Dad than it was my Sister. 3 others died from Covid in their residential place. Another home in Worcester lost 14 after an outbreak.

  4. I thought we were fantastic in the second half, the effort the coaches are getting out of these players is amazing. The fullbacks were really impressive, Ollie ran the line really well, Grealish was superb and did a lot of work defensively, and there were moments of real quality and class all over the place. McGinn won't get much attention but he worked his little Scottish stones off and Hause was massively impressive at the back. I thought Palace were horrible, Zaha is vile - he's managed to get Mings into a battle with his own ego and that's always trouble - the big Alpha really struggl

  6. I'll never understand why after a game where we've put in a really good performance against the best team in the country despite having not trained for two weeks and being **** over by a referee, whilst also being on course for our best season in a decade, people's first thought after the game is to come here and slate our players.

  7. I love Conor, he goes down as one of those players I'll forever love because of him as a pro, what he's done for us and because I always have to stick up for those who are unfairly picked on, which in my view he has been. A favourite doesn't have to be a world beater, just someone you respect. He's worked his way up the divisions, scored in all of them, always worked hard and never kicked up a fuss. Selfishly, I'd rather he stay as I still think he's currently our best option from the bench. We also have no-one, even Jack, who can replace his set-piece abilities currently. I acknowledge,

  8. I think Smith should go all out attack, ship two goals in the first three minutes and lose 6-2 while sitting on a bucket. Then sit back and enjoy the media praise that will surely come his way.

  9. Let’s not attack any of our players now. He's a huge part of the turnaround from championship mediocrity to premier league domination. Yes, he has an error in him, yes he has a nasty streak that rears its head every now and again, but this is the guy that wore his villa kit back to Bournemouth. Plays with his heart on his sleeve. He will be suspended, and will have to fight for his place back in the team - which will not be easy. This is punishment enough.

  11. When he doesn’t score for 3 games please don’t be like I told you he was shit. He’s never been shit. He’s always been inconsistent. He has the talent no doubt. Now he has the confidence and the mentality. Just back him, even when things don’t go his way. That’s your job as a supporter.

  12. Strangely subdued match, but then Newkie Bruceball is so dreary it can drain some of the life from even the most beloved things. Like watching a sexy, sexy video at a tenfold level of slow motion, what was once beautiful and pure becomes uncomfortable with the occasional, unavoidable aura of dread. Glad we were thoroughly professional before GTFO of that dungeon of joylessness. Anyway... Martinez 8- Largely a passenger but as ever assured and commanding. This guy would've saved Barings Bank. Mings 6- It's tricky critiquing Mings' arrogance as it's plainly also an asset shown in h

  16. I end up drinking Heineken when at Villa Park. But whatever you decide to drink, for the authentic experience, before the match you should stand in front of your fridge and wait ten minutes (at least) before collecting your drink. Then stand in a hallway or corridor staring at sky sports and unsuccessfully try to intake all the results and tables before they move onto the next division. If you’re going to the toilet, ideally you’ll have twenty to thirty men already in situ for when you go in, half of whom will be smoking. When you need to wash your hands, the water should ideall

  18. Now at the point where I’m sure I won’t die. I must just be lucky and - thank god - for the fitness work I started in March last year. I think the chunkier me might have struggled. The me in 2016 would perhaps have been really bad. Don’t want to get too excited, my nurse friend has been such a great help over the phone. My oxygen sat levels are normal, my temp normal, I can taste now - so yeah, that was cat shit in the fridge. Hope returns! Even if I still think it’s too early, about 12 days since I got my + result.

  22. As a teacher, I am just stopping for the night... we've prepared for most things to some degree but the ridiculous late nature of the announcement and the timescale in which to react to it, against a backdrop of us being told (threatened?!) with the absolute opposite scenario has resulted in an absolute mess where we can not possibly open to ANY children tomorrow. In summary we have been given 12 hours, assuming no sleep/dinner/family commitments, to; Prepare online resources for tomorrow (sketches were in place so can react ok to it - however, all planning/resources for onsite teach

  23. And in less than 12 months. We’re talking about a Chelsea team who came to Villa park last season and we hardly touched the ball and lost 2-1 which flattered us. Tonight, they’ve brought in quality players with fresh legs, then substituted on 150m worth of players and they couldn’t beat us. Not only that, we were the better side for periods of the game. This was as good of a performance as the Palace game. How fit are our players? These are the same bunch that had to compensate for a sending off only 48 hours ago and they’ve run around like that, kept up with a ‘superior’ team and c

  25. Aston Villa manager Dean Smith to BT Sport: "In terms of effort, it was heroic. We only had three days' training and played a very good team. They had lots of chances but they've missed them and they've been given two goals at the end. "Are we just going to leave players behind the line then? It's farcical. He was 10 yards offside and come back and tackled our player, it's a pathetic law and a pathetic decision. "I said to the fourth official David Coote 'did you get juggling balls for Christmas?' I don't think any other manager would get sent off for that. "Matty Cash is a yard

  26. Ok just for clarity, from the FA website, rules of offside: Offside offence A player in an offside position at the moment the ball is played or touched* by a team-mate is only penalised on becoming involved in active play by: interfering with play by playing or touching a ball passed or touched by a team-mate or interfering with an opponent by: preventing an opponent from playing or being able to play the ball by clearly obstructing the opponent’s line of vision or challenging an opponent for the ball or clearly attempting to play a ball which is

  27. Man City were the better team, and I have no problems with them, their players or their manager. If they nicked a goal, who can argue, they had the upper hand all game long. But that was 12 vs 11, simple as that. **** robbed. Why put up with the inadequacies of VAR, the delays to the game, the ruining of the spectacle, if this is the result? It's a **** joke. I hope Jon Moss chokes to death on a kebab the fat **** disgraceful **** word removed of a **** referee. Eat a dick. You eat everything **** else.

  28. They are literally disowning this crisis. It's all on us. No leadership at all. If things get worse is because we didn't follow the "rules". The fact that they aren't clear and don't make logical sense in many cases is ignored. Also the lack of support for those who are staying at home and "doing what they're told" is telling. No support for home schooling, no support for vulnerable, socially isolated people, just nothing... It's all a shit show.... It'll just run its course with many more deaths and nobody in government will be held to account.

  29. I bought a new pair of trainers online a couple of months ago and they're lovely to look at but the right one was really tight and uncomfortable. As I can never be arsed to send stuff back I persevered hoping I'd just wear them in and they'll get more comfortable. I realised today that I've been walking round with a spare shoelace in the toe of my shoe for two months.

  31. Let's put it this way. If, under zero pressure from a ball coming towards him, Mings just hoofed it away, we'd all be saying 'TIME!!!' 'Don't just hoof it!' which is essentially what this situation is. He has time, acres of space, aside from the quite obviously offside player behind. He either, reasonably, doesn't see Rodri, (because he's so far offside) or sees him and ignores him. (because he's so far offside) The third option is 'safety first' but safety first doesn't come into consideration when there's no danger. It isn't a mistake and those hounding him for it, either

  32. Question is, is it a mistake by Mings, I don’t think it is, he is allowed to bring the ball down and not expect to be dispossessed by the offside player.

  36. It dawned on me by the way that when great big things happen in the news, my default is now to whack on one of the news channels and have the relevant VT thread open at the same time. It would seem that for me, news isn't news any more without the addition of a well informed and slightly unhinged collection of football loving oddballs. We're the AFTV of global events.
