  2. It does indeed, £1 million for us, and we pass on about £75,000 to Exeter, win, win for both clubs, keep getting picked and scoring Ollie and that will mean even more for us both, schooled and brought up by 2 clubs who know how to treat and bring on young players, and then polished up by Villa, all credit to 3 damn good clubs

  3. I very rarely post on VT, much more of a lurker, but I just wanted to respond to this. Nothing personal against you @tinker, but this approach is one of the problems with women's concerns being taken seriously by men. I'm a 30-something woman, and happen to live 2 streets down from where Sarah Everard was last seen alive. Although what happened to her is incredibly rare, it highlighted the fears that most women live with every day. Every time we walk somewhere at night, or unknown, or quiet, we make a risk assessment on what we would do if we were attacked (most likely by a man). We make

  5. Gotta admit, I do love the mental image of Wills sat at a gold desk in some palace somewhere, getting drinks from servants while he scrolls through 15 pages of back-and-forth about whether it's finally time for Keinan Davis to start up front.

  6. I don't really share much on VT - I'm normally just here for ice rinks and fish perversions but I found out this weekend that my mum has terminal cancer. We're waiting on the details but there's no expectation of anything other than the worst result and it's expected to be fairly quick. I've been completely blind-sided by it and I've not been able to stop my face leaking for the last two days. I feel like a bit of a wimp as I want to be strong for my parents and my brother and sister but I just can't hold it together for more than a few minutes at a time.

  11. I have complete faith in him. Season 1 promotion to the biggest and hardest league in the world. Season 2 keeps us in the hardest league in the world Season 3 improves our position and solidifies us in the league. I assume Season 4 will have us pushing for top half or even European slots. I cant wait. According to him and the owners they didnt expect to be promoted when we did, he is already ahead of schedule. Pretty silly to want to sack him because he hasnt brought us european football in our second season.

  14. Today I was sitting in on a couple of cases at the Youth Justice Court just to pass some down time. It never fails to provide amusement. Names have been changed. One lad was with his dad. The dad had been Googling and now felt he was perfectly capable of getting his son off the hook. They are a lot less formal than normal courts and normally begin with everyone introducing themselves and explaining why they are there. "I am Matt. I am Tom's dad and will be representing him today". "I am Tom. I'm the one who stole the moped". Matt sighs and looks to heaven.

  17. Has he really made that many similar mistakes this season? I feel it gets blown out of proportion sometimes and it's easy to label someone to be prone to mistakes. Everyone does it, sometimes it gets exploited, sometimes not. He gets cought out sometimes when he tries to play the ball instead of just kicking it away, if we demand our defenders to play it 100% safe all the time we can call Bruce back. Aren't we just one or two clean sheets from breaking the record this season? Only Abu Dhabi FC and Chelski have conceded less this season. Mings has played a central role in that, having a super s

  20. Really not understanding why people are hammering McGinn. Yes, he's been below par for his standards but in the last game he was one of our better performers. The manger clearly trusts him which is why he's asked to do different things game to game. This is also why others have been rested ahead of him. Good player, struggling recently but looks like he's on the way back.

  21. These arguments as to who has had it worse are pretty pointless and have been done before. Tell the 80 year old who has lost a husband or wife of 60 years without being able to be by their bedside that they've had it easier than the 21 year old who can't go to the pub. Tell the lady who got told that she'd miscarried without her partner being allowed to go to the appointment with her that she's had it easier than either of the above. I'm not sure what it achieves trying to play one age group off against another and that's coming from someone who isn't a lot older than the group of people

  23. It was a typical day on the training ground. The gaffer was overseeing the squad as they went through their paces. It had been a good start to the new season, the team had won their first five matches with their star striker Stevo having scored seventeen goals already. There was a concern from the coaching staff that the players might be becoming overconfident. The manager watched as Stevo scored another from the halfway line and wanted to make an example of this talented youngster with his rugged good looks that has captured the country’s heart and imagination. He waited as the applause

  24. Being told yesterday evening by my boss that I've been awarded a Corporate "Thank You" for outstanding leadership during the past year. She said it was very rare teams come together to think of ways to reward their team leader and apparently they all had a little secret meeting to discuss how to fill out the nomination form. I wondered why they all had a private meeting in their calendars . It isn't much (a £50 "super cheque" that I can use on Amazon etc) but I'm humbled!

I've got 79 years on this stupid, piece of shit space rock, and I'll spend 1/3 of that time with my eyes closed. Absolutely pointless - well done evolution, you word removed. 2. Pissing and or shitting - why? Just be more efficient you stupid, fat body of mine - use what I give you and stop pissing away "bad stuff" - just keep it and deal with it. Again, **** YOU evolution, you absolute ball of ass. 3. I.T staff - **** hell, what a bunch of moany asstards that lot ar

  30. Watkins is not the finished article by a long shot. Has flaws in his game. However its his first season in the prem, as a lone striker. He's only 24, his work rate is phenomenal and he gets in the right positions more often than not. He's scored double figures already and has also hit the woodwork 6 or 7 times. His ceiling is high and with more experience and coaching i think he could be brilliant for years to come

  31. How long do we think it would take to put an effective system of passport management into place? Three months? Six months? Something that could be operational for everyone in the country, and for every business or location? Something supported by clear legislation and authority that could be implemented by a restaurant seater greeter and understood by the customer? A year? In three months time every adult that wants it will have been vaccinated. I'm sure there's some devil in the detail, but my broad understanding is that if there are eighty of you in a pub and two haven't been vaccinated

  32. He is such a funny character, I couldn't tell if he is 20 or 50, could be either a fashionista or a bricklayer in his home land, is Egyptian but calls himself Trezeguet, plays with the confidence like he thinks he is Ronaldo and tries to go past players all the time, but fails 9 times out of 10, the tenth time he succeeds with something making him look amazing, when he is happy he looks like the hapipest man alive, his sad face looks like he is absolutely devestated, sometimes it looks like he can't control a football at all, sometimes his touches are exquisite, he runs around, fumbles, falls

  33. THAT'S WHAT HE OFFERS!!! Get in Keinan, so pleased for him. Give him more than 10 minutes ffs. It's both an indication of how strong he is, and how pathetically weak some of our other players are. Simple strength and hold up ffs, allows others the time to get in, and allows him to brute past defenders. If we had a DCM version of Keinan it would help us no end at times as well.

  34. LOL @ people who say AEG and Trez are shit when they've both scored massive goals for Villa over the last three seasons. Yes, they are incomplete, inconsistent players with flaws in their game, but they deserve more respect, IMO.

  35. Hard to know what to make of it. I don't think we played all that badly. I do think we've got huge problems up front. I thought we defended pretty well apart from the complete brain fart in the first half - that's won Spurs the game, but then you shouldn't as a defence have to rely on being completely mistake free in order to earn a point. I thought Cash was really good on his return and Mings was good - Konsa had five minutes where his head had gone a bit and Targett was solid. The second goal is a shameful bit of cheating from the England Captain, he's caught sight of Cash sliding

  37. well of course but, it was **** everywhere. They cancelled whole channels and even when you just want to stick the radio on for a bit, it was non stop pathetically maudlin playlists for this manipulative cult of grief porn. I didn't bother complaining but I'm quite glad that it has become the record thing complained about. Maybe they'll take the hint when liz pops her clogs, though I doubt it. Mercifully, streaming services makes it much easier to ignore the obsessive nonsense, but the beeb did their level best to ensure it invaded every last nook and cranny of any of their output.

  38. My favourite comment in this thread was someone saying you can’t say Smith has improved us season on season for 3 seasons because this season isn’t over yet. We already have more points than we did last season! With another 24 points left to play for! Sorry to use stats again, but Smith has clearly improved us every season, while integrating loads of new players into the starting lineup each summer. That has to count for something. I also would love to see us playing better football, scoring better goals, fighting more for possession in the middle of the park, and not being so r
