    Look who I met! He signed my shirt and we had a bit of a conversation for a minute.

    Shit, that means even if we were to buy him, he's now pre-season tied!

    He's generally played pretty well for Villa. It's hard to really pinpoint many glaring errors that he's made and in some games he's been absolutely superb. Playing at Aston Villa (currently) means you see way less of the ball and are under much more pressure than when playing for Netherlands (a side who had the majority of possession in every World Cup game they played apart from vs. Brazil). One of his strengths is being comfortable on the ball - sometimes to his detriment (vs Newcastle), but a refreshing change from aimless long balls. He makes pretty crucial interceptions and seems to time his tackles well whilst being deceptively quick. My point is more... people are saying "£10m is amazing! Take it!" - who do you replace him with for £10m though? Who is this magical £7/8m CB that Ulver mentioned who is as good if not better than Ron Vlaar?

    Blimey that's some serious working out To be able to turn your head right around and look directly behind you like that, Exorcist stylee - great work from young Stevens.

    Don't get where this idea comes from that he only plays well in a Netherlands shirt.

    Money talks. If another team, say West Ham were to receive a Man CIty style takeover, I imagine most of us fans would be pretty gutted thinking that that would be another team set leave us behind and we'd probably be right. If someone mega rich wanted to take over (Villa) and make a difference they could.

    That looks bad, but in Israel's defence, some of the Palestinian rockets have chipped the paint off the Iron Dome.

    It's always sunny is definitely my favourite comedy. The character depth is incredible. The things they get up to is absolutely bonkers but seems completely believable once you get to know each characters personality. It's incredibly intelligent and makes a joke out of everything.

    If he can't get motivated playing for the team he claims to love whilst getting paid 50ish thousand pound a week then I can see why we may not be offering him a contract.

    Generally he's been ok but nothing special, he's part of the problem because ours is a team that concedes far too many goals. I do think 10m would be amazing although you are the 1st person to write it because I wouldn't rate him much more than 3m now that he has less than a year to run on his contract. Thanks to a good WC we might make some money on him. I and many Villans had never heard of Vlaar before he was photographed being shown around VP but I'm pretty sure Lambert will have his scouts looking for the next unknown bargain or out of contract player if he thinks he will lose Vlaar. If I were to guess though I think we already have Vlaar's replacement in Senderos which if I'm right is a worry. I completely agree that he's "nothing special"; but special players cost an absolutely ridiculous amount. What he is, is a solid central defender that has improved over the time he's been at Aston Villa and has clearly adapted to the demands of the Premier League and, thus, has been able to apply his adaptation on the biggest stage in the World. Whether you like it or not, the clubs that are being linked with signing him (Man Utd, Spurs, Southampton) are all better than Villa - that's the level he's at. To rate the guy at not "much more than 3m" is crazy. I think replacing him will be harder than people seem to think; especially if you're expecting scouts to find a player as good as him for around £7-10m and also have them settle instantly.

    Hope so. Would be depressing watching him join (supposedly) skint Everton on a permanent basis.

    Really did feel for Cook today. Would have been great to see him get to a ton. He's laid the foundations though, for England to go on and get a big score.

    What's interesting is the hierarchy of public interest in various war zones. This latest Israel-Gaza flareup is front page stuff, and elicits poignant commentary from people like Jon Snow (who does not know nothing, BTW) I understand that a major element to this conflict is the obvious lopsided nature of it, and the visceral outrage it incurs. But compare it to the conflicts in Democratic Republic of Congo, where the death toll of recent years absolutely dwarfs that of all Middle Eastern conflicts combined. Or Sudan. Or Mali. Or any of the other African wars over the last 10 years that have seen literally tens of millions of people killed, maimed and raped. They must wonder what sub level of human evil needs to be perpetrated to garner a headline or even a back page blurb.

    It's not his fault he's had to do four jobs in one. If he was allowed to concentrate on his own game and not keep covering from the constant mistakes of others. I think you would see a solid consistent display week in, week out.

Slightly off topic but is Guzan also part of the problem then because he's part of the same defence?

    This is where the language of the site falls down. I "liked" it in the sense of thinking it was good it was posted. You can't actually like what it depicts, while seeking to remain part of the civilised world. Though apparently some Israelis do.

    I suppose there is that. But it's like vultures picking the carcass. The usual suspects signing up all the players. Boring and predictable

    Did come to the edge of the stands to sign a few things, including my kit with him on the back. Permanent legend in my eyes for that alone.

    Just watched Jurassic Park again, it's amazing how believable the dinosaurs are over 20 years since it came out. More believable than most CGI nowadays.

    Yeah, he is making top quality opposition look like bums. Cotto would be a big money fight, I think GGG wins that by knockout. Fight is here if you want it. Russian commentary, though they don't say much at all.

    If Libor can make the third or fourth game of the season that'd be excellent.

    I was standing on a ledge. Libor is taller than me I didn't ask him when he will be back but him and Benteke were on the bench and they've been training so it shouldn't be too long! He just asked where I was from and we are actually from around the same area in Czech. He was a nice guy. Seemed a bit surprised that someone actually called him over and had his shirt!

    Pulled out of the Remy deal with concerns over his medical. Wonder if they will go back in for Bony now?

    Nope not after an argument at all was just making a point. Guzan is as much of part of the defence as Vlaar and yet Guzan recieves little to no criticism which just seems odd to me. For what it's worth i think Vlaar and Guzan are the only 2 outof our defence who we can truly rely on at the moment.

    Teach your kids to use the internet safely would be my advice. I'm sure you do this anyway. Unfortunately, children of this generation struggle with the concept of online and offline lives. Theirs is an online reality and you're better off preparing them for that through allowing them to make the odd mistake and keeping an eye on them. Mind you, I can understand the nighttime restrictions, if I had kids I'd be worried about them messing about with phones when they should be sleeping.

    Just smashed in a "one of every animal, BBQ special". Pork steak marinated in Jack Daniels BBQ sauce, Chinese chicken thighs, minted lamb cutlet, and possibly the best rib eye steak I've ever cooked myself. Feel full now, and getting some major meat sweats, but so worth it!

    I have come to the conclusion that It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia is my favourite comedy show ever. I can watch it over and over and over and I can't think of a show that has made me laugh as much since Black Adder.

    She replied "I'm okay with it most prolly " That was her response, letter-for-letter. Hmmm. So she didn't put a x at the end? Sorry man. She's just not that in to you x
