    It really is difficult to please everyone isn't it. I'm actually struggling to think of a better team of people that we could have attracted whilst we were in the Premier League, let alone the Championship.

    even if Richards and Lescott turn over a new leaf, I still wont forgive them for last season and still prefer they dont come back

    I personally could not give a **** where a manager, coach or player are from as long as they are right for the club.

    Like ****. a) You are only as good as the company you keep, and him pissing it up with Gabby et al speaks volumes. he's a professional sportsman. Do you see Chris Froome, Rory McIlroy or Novak Djokovic jetting over to Dubai midseason? There's a reason he's on the bench at Crystal Palace for years and it's because he doesn't want it enough. No thanks

    I believe that if he is back to full fitness and the ability is still there then I can't see a reason not to give him a full trial over the summer. I was never a huge fan of his before. Like most I thought he was decent but that's about it. But his love for the club, his leadership skills and watching some of the turgid shite that has pulled on the shirt in the meanwhile, mean I've reassessed that opinion. Forget the sentimentality, a fully fit 35 year old Petrov could be an essential asset over a long old slog of a season. And yeah, imagine the feeling seeing him pull on the famous claret and blue again, even if it's just one more time. After everything he's been through. After everything we went through with him, 19th minute applause and all. Go for it Stan. I'm with you mate.

    Hardly damning evidence from the BBC there. He's rambling. I'm not defending him per se, I don't actually know what was going through his mind at the time. But I'm not ready to condemn him based on that. Also, this "an innocent man would do this and this" kind of talk is bollocks. Not everyone thinks and acts like you would or want them to. He might have a family who were under enough stress, maybe his parrot was sick at the time. All I'm saying is, Judge Judy and executioner, before you write somebody off as scum try think outside the box for a second. It's likely not as black and white as you think.

    Richards defends Dubai trip I was never a fan of Richards, but what finished him for me was his tweet defending the trip to Dubai. Saying "Don't tag me in your photos you clown, Excuse us for having a few days away after a long hard season". It was still March, the season doesn't end until mid May you prat. That says it all for me, the season was over in their minds by March. No fight, passion or pride. Get rid, he is done here! In reply to @jon_c

    We want Xia out. Dr Xia out. I just don't think you understand. From European nights to badly designed websites. We want Dr Xia out.

    If we were still in the Premier League, this would be a very impressive backroom staff team. In the Championship, it's phenomenal.

    I would rather the player who stayed at home perhaps getting in some extra fitness sessions respecting his health and body and team paying him absolutely obscene amounts of money in order for him to perform as a top class athlete in the best physical condition he can be. And yes they do exist but we seem over and over again to sign unprofessional morons about whom we say "oh well they are footballers we can't expect them to be angels" despite the fact we are paying them 100 times more than your average Olympic athlete who is young and full of life but treats his body like a temple because he is driven and wants to be the best. I for one pray the days of signing Dubai party boys are over.

    All I'll say is that I think we have enough members of the squad with mediocre attitudes, some model professionals in the Kevin Nolan, Gareth Barry mould would be high on my shopping list.

    Foreign underperformers ? LOL. Sinclair, Lescott, Richards, Gabby - not particularly foreign Amavi, if he would have been fit for the entire season I would suggest would have been player of the year. Ayew was the only one that showed fight. Clown

    I heard that in other jobs he tried 4-4-2, 4-3-3, even 4-5-1, and stuck at it, until he found the combination to the club's safe.

    Just parked up next to Gabby at McDonalds, will ask him if he's joining slimming world. On topic, you guys have really brought me round to the idea of Stan playing for us again, as well as that picture. Questions marks over whether he still has the legs but get him on the pre season tour!

    A bit concerning that he was involved at all to begin with, though, isn't it? Even as a figurehead to establish a company, wouldn't you think they could find someone a little more respectable? Setting aside for a moment the guilt or innocence regarding the failure to pay the invoices, this guy really appears to be a small-time hack who fancies himself an international player. The company's ability to pay a $25,000 court ordered invoice hinges on a Saudi passport? And that's the top Google result for the guy? Surely Dr. Tony should have access to someone a little more substantial, given his (presumed) wealth and connections with Harvard and Oxford and what not. If anything, I'd expect a successful businessman to inspiring confidence with his business dealings and possibly leaving us worried about his handling of the football side of things. Instead he's getting the football part right and looking a bit suspect with his business dealings. Not that I'm advocating for poor football appointments, mind you, but I'm a bit puzzled. Perhaps this is why the approval hasn't been as quick or straightforward as we would have liked. It seems he might be shooting himself in the foot to a certain extent.

    With two ex boggies managers now appointed to try and turn us around can it officially put to bed the utter garbage that we do not like managers because of where they come from? RDM while not universally popular as a choice, seems to have raised spirits with the only resevations around whether he can construct a football club from the roots up and his length of time served at other clubs Steve Clarke seems to be a unanimously popular appointment. Not one whiff of a "we dont want these because they managed boggies".

    Govt has a majority in the Commons of 12, this was voted through with a majority of 375, supported by conservative and labour. 137 MP's didn't attend or vote. Don't forget to vote to get our democracy back on 23rd June.

    He knows the club, he knows football, he knows what Villa fans want and he has their respect in I would now guess 99.9% of cases. RDM could do worse than seek his opinions on players we have as well as those he might want to consider bringing in. I find your use of the term "relic" inappropriate when talking of a Villa legend.

    Actually, there is a very good reason for that, and it's that I am an idiot and missed it out. Thanks for letting me know about it, feel free to check on the other fixtures if you can be arsed to see if i missed anything else in the upcoming gameweeks. @Villaphan04@theboyangel@CardiffGreens@Daniel@NoelVilla@Czechlad@Stevo985@StefanAVFC@rubberman@tom_avfc@kurtsimonw@Demitri_C@rodders0223@TheAuthority Please note my **** up above, i have added the missed game as a row in your prediction box on the Google sheet, please can you fill that one in but don't worry about messing about re-pasting it back into this thread. Sorry lads, i had no one to verify the sheet.

    No excuse what to so ever to not even try when you are being paid £40-60k/w and is supposed to be a professional. Gabby, Lescott, (Bacuna,) Richards all have to go, no if's or but's Edit: could probably add Sinclair & Guzan to that list.

    Last world cup I didn't see a single ball being kicked, nothing. It was marvellous, no frustration, no crushing disappointment, no headscratching at Hodgsons ineptness. This year its the euros and the plan is to work, walk my dogs, go to gigs and catch up on films.

    He was so fantastic at relieving pressure. When we were under the cosh he would pick the ball up, shield it and always draw a foul stifling the opponents momentum. We haven't had anyone in midfield capable of doing that for years hence why we always concede in the last 10 minutes of every game since 2012.

    As @useless pointed out yesterday, the sheer confidence of posters in their opinion saying they'd be gutted if we spent £10m on Bamford mirrors the posts made when we were linked to Jamie Vardy for £15m. The lad has 43 goals in 97 games and is 22 years old. Of course Chelsea are going to ask around £10m. Ross McCormack went for £11m two years ago and was 27 at the time.

    It'd built very much to be responsive as sites which are responsive shoot up in the google rankings. April 2014 was the tipping point where for the first time google saw site searches on mobile devices outweigh desktop and tablet. Incidentally despite what they say the google searching that puts responsive sites first only is when searched on a mobile. But google changes its parameters all the while. Good seo and click throughs are still the order of the day. The site was built by the company who are working on Liverpool and Evertons sites. No surprise being a Liverpool agency. I like it when compared to the old/current site. Use of a nice clean google font if a bit too busy in places.
