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

  5. 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?

  11. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

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

  18. Just got back from the match. It was great. I met Joe Cole, Cieran Clark, Bent, Gabby, Guzan, and of course Kozak. I had a nice chat with Kozak as well. Benteke gave me a wink as the only Villa fan in a sea of orange. Match wasn't that amazing but it was a great experience nonetheless. I have to say, Grealish looks like he has some serious potential.

  26. 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.

  27. 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?

  37. You can just barely hear him, they need to turn his mic up. I don't think it's helped by the other guy never seeming to react or reply to anything he says, maybe he can't hear him either? That, or I've gone insane and am hearing voices. I couldn't quite make it out but I think he just said "Kill everyone, murder murder death"
