  1. The reason why we let Gary Cahill go.

  2. I think the empty Holte would be brilliant for a meaningful protest. However, the problems with this one, as have been pointed out, are numerous 1. First and foremost, it's too late, imo. Something like this needs a few weeks to organise. Despite the media attention, I don't think enough people will know about it. 2. Logistics/health and safety. There is no way that Villa Park will allow potentially 14,000 people to all enter the ground at once. it would be mayhem. ANd if people are all trying to get in after 8 minutes, chances are we'll still be filing in at half time. 3. No m

  4. There's an 8 page thread on here discussing new managers and the best we could come up with seems to be Steve McClaren, Mick McCarthy or 'someone Dutch'. I can imagine the first two having protests against them within 6 months, let alone two and a half years. Protesting against Randy seems a bit pointless as he wants to go, it's not as if he's clinging on to power. We've already signed one player in this window and it looks like we've been actively working in at least one other deal, so they are working hard to buy players to help Lambert get a better balance in the squad. I'd rather we di

  10. This in the Daily Mail: 'Aston Villa have asked about a loan for Atletico Madrid winger Cristain Rodriguez, also the subject of interest from Crystal Palace and Sunderland.' http://www1.skysports.com/football/transfer-paper-talk They are a good side so perhaps we should loan 2 players from them?

  14. My brilliant friends. They're planning a week-long trip around Iceland. I've kept on telling them that I can't afford it (I'm potless!) so now they're paying for me (spending money included if I need it). They've done it before right after a long trip to the US back in 2005. I got back, had a few pints and got told that I'm going to Poland and Slovakia (they knew I couldn't afford it). Cue an awesome trip and me paying them back long after. It's only happened again. One mate in particular (with his gf) is paying for me and it just so happens that both their birthdays fall whilst in Ic

  15. Why do you feel the need to mock the way some people post? Seems strange to mock others, especially when you're stance is rarely supported with facts and evidence. You honestly can't see the satirical juxtaposition in the post?

  16. Why do you feel the need to mock the way some people post? Seems strange to mock others, especially when you're stance is rarely supported with facts and evidence. We all agree on the facts. What we don't agree on is the reason behind those facts. Here is an example of a fact: We have only scored 11 goals this season. Here is an example of an opinion dressed up as a fact: The manager's tactics are so bad that we've only scored 11 goals this season.

  17. Who is expecting a lot from him? The vast majority of posts I've seen in here are of people hopeful that he can come up good but not expecting immediate results. That and a few bizarre posts about how him leaving Valencia and signing for us somehow means he'll never be that good.

  18. I love how people sometimes speak about footballers as if they proper know them personally, it almost sounds more like jealousy than anything else! All i can say in my defence is that i do not have abs, or a tan, or a model for a mrs!! I look like a silverback gorrila, with funny beard, who goes red in the sun and my mrs is irish and is not afraid to let me know it!!!!

  23. Why can't we just support the **** team?? Every game this season sounds like a morgue. Yes the games are boring.. more reason to get pissed.. sing songs and create some noise. Instead of organising protests how about organising how to generate a positive supporting environment. Get behind them and don't just sit there quietly. I can't help but think when it gets quiet and awkward the players feel the tension and when they misplace a pass they hear groans. When I went to VP it was rocking and you just feel energised. The players feel that too. Players are finding it hard to get going but you c

  25. I remain a big fan of Weimann. Despite our goal drought, every time he has come on we've had a few more chances purely because of the outstanding amount of work he puts in every time. He at least makes defenders work and that can create spaces for others. He's not an amazing finisher by any stretch but if he was playing in the right position he'd reliably be getting 10-15 goals a season. He is not a winger. He works harder, runs quicker and finishes better than Gabby these days.

  26. Totally agree with that post. Personally I won't be protesting and I won't be turning up 8 minutes late and I don't boo and I won't chant anything anti Lambert. I want him gone asap but I don't think any of that is productive or helpful to the team. The simple sad truth is the fans are already voting with their feet / wallets. I shudder to think what season ticket sales will be like next season whatever league we are in. I've got two season tickets for my son and I and we will be there tomorrow but as I said in an earlier post I don't look forward to the games anymore. Dread was the word I

  38. Sorry but Valenica are way above us, he was a regular at Elche who were on par with us last year. He will be good enough for us and using the he's not good enough for Valencia is nonsense. It's like signing Martin Laursen and saying he wasn't good enough for Milan, absolute nonsense.

  39. it shouldn't because every one of these new 'stats' that keep appearing are all centred on how many goals we score and how many we concede. Just because someone keeps thinking up new iterations of the same basic principle that results haven't been good enough doesn't make the situation any worse.

  42. I don't think any of us has any evidence that he's a piss poor manager. What we do have is evidence that his football team isn't playing very well. There's a big difference. If you like him, as you say, try a bit harder and I think you'll be able to find a few reasons why he hasn't had a fair crack of it so far. The team is playing very very poorly and the manager has to take his share of responsibility. Villa fans have endured 2.5 seasons of crap with the occasional bright spot whilst setting all sorts of unwelcome records. All the empirical evidence points to the fact he is a poor

  43. He's shite. No improvement on a half arsed N'zogbia. Had about three good games at a time the media were falling over themselves to find anything good about Manchester United whilst all football fans were looking on with glee at their poor form. This lad put some good crosses in and beat his man a few times so became hyped up far far far beyond his ability. We already have a Van Gaal cast off wasting a space in our first team, please don't sign another one Paul. Playing for United at 18 years old and playing in a World cup. Yeah, total shite mate. A feat that Djemba x2 didn't complete unt

  44. It's a meaningless statement intended to take pressure off his employer, but it is a fact. How could it not be a fact? You think he wants us relegated? Very strange. No I think he wants his investment to survive in the premier league without him spending much money. I think he's got his interests at heart, not us.

He comes to car 12, booth 3. In it was a man. So, he asked him for his ticket: "Excuse me sir, do have your ticket?" "Oh, I am soooo sorry, I dropped it out the window by accident," he replied. "Sorry sir, can't have any passengers without tickets." He grabbed him by the scruff of the neck and threw him out of the train. Well, he landed on the tracks and was run over by the train. Naturally, the conductor w
