  2. To highlight this, look at the two goals Barnsley scored from open play....apologies for the pics, I'm no Gary Neville...but this is so basic.....I really and truly expected Steve Bruce to sort this inept defending out as soon as he came in.... Look at Amavi's position for the cross. No pressue on the ball at all. Cannot stop the cross from 6/7 yards away. It's not even like he was trying to get there, he just runs alongside at that distance if you watch it back. Cross comes in, Baker doesn't know where the 10 has gone. Chester also 'closed' position, b

  3. Just for you @Woodytom A pic in pic of the moment Barton claws the guys face, the exact same time Westwood spits. He's not even in the **** picture Here's a full pitch view, where he's what, 7-8 yards away? He's almost far enough away to make a wall Yep!

  4. I imagine the discussion when Steve was appointed, with Tony saying something like "Steve, you have only one task. Get us out of this division!" Which is where being more specific about the direction of travel would have been a big plus.

  9. I will try again. I think the problem at Villa came from the top down and the solution will need to come from the top down as well. The problem was created by Lerner's neglect. It was difficult to see anything other than neglect and disinterest from his lack of attendance at Villa Park. Then, after investing nicely for a while, including setting a too high wage standard, RL's divorce and maybe other personal matters caused his wallet to dry up. Fast forward several years of minimal investment (still paying salaries that were far too high). And the club from top to bottom, settled int

  10. I'd go back to the foreign route. I wouldn't class Houllier or Garde as failures. Houllier under-acheived but was trying to get us to play a different style of football, it was never going to be easy straight away and the fans unfairly jumped on his back imo. Garde pretty much had no chance. I wish Garde had stayed to be honest.

  11. You could do a PhD thesis on Villa fans and Westwood. As I said before, I didn't rate him that highly but some of the stick he got was just way out of proportion. It's almost as if some fans channeled all the rage of the last few years and focused it squarely on him for some reason.

  13. It's almost like he's a foreign player from a foreign league finding his feet at our club. That said, it is our club so I fully expect people to write him off after, say, 3 games.

  16. So Brexit means taking control over immigration, and having taken control of immigration we shall still allow the brightest and best from abroad in because we need the skills and we will allow the low paid because we still need them to do all the crappy jobs we won't do. We will however slam the door shut when it is in the national interest to do so, which I'm assuming means when it is proven that immigration is a net loss to the country, (which it isn't or to my knowledge has never been). It does make me wonder a little bit why immigration is the number one red line when even one of the mai

  22. A good question! The short answer is that, historically, the Border is a boon to people who like to kill other humans. Leaving the Customs Unions will require a border. The sentiment is capture pretty well in this Guardian article, calling border police "sitting ducks". But I'm really bad at giving short answers so will waffle on for another couple of paragraphs. Many elements of the Good Friday Agreement are reliant on pan-European agencies, in particular the EU's funding of "peace initiatives", but also the explicit recognition of the European Convention of Human Rights as a baseline fo

  23. Managed to sort a new car just in time to avoid shelling out on ours, all being well collecting it tomorrow. Although the number plate begins with RV so everytime I see it or write it, I think of Black Sabbath, cucumbers and Henry's.

  27. We need to bottom out before we can move forward again, I think most people thought relegation to the Championship would constitute rock bottom for us but I fear it is not. Man City, Southampton, Leicester, Norwich etc all had to get relegated to the 3rd division in order to rebuild, whilst the thought of Villa playing in the 3rd division depresses me greatly I can't help but feel that it's what we need.

  28. Made more passes than bjarnason. Put more crosses in than any other player. Hogan, attempted 3 passes and completed 1 of them. 1 pass. And yet we're turning on this guy. Absolute madness.

  30. It made me remember why I used to enjoy watching football before I started only watching Villa stink the place out every week. I need to start watching more CL games. It's the difference between watching a proper gig, and watching some pissed up bloke stumble over kareoke in the local.

  31. That was the most entertaining game of football I've seen in a very long time. In fact I can't remember enjoying a game as much as that (as a neutral spectator). Not one for the purist as there was scarcely any defensive nous on show, but sometimes you just want a barnstormer. I fully expect it will be exactly the same over in Monaco as I suspect both of these teams only know the one way to play. And I think it benefits from Monaco having to chase the game from the off. An early Monaco goal and it'll all be set up vehh nicely. MOAR PLEASE!

  32. I don't think it's purely coincidence that our defence has turned to shit since bringing in a new keeper. Maybe we should try bringing in an experienced keeper instead of an experienced defender? One has just left Sutton...

  36. Very unfair. Man City were a class above Villa but our lads effort would put the first Team to shame. Our £80 million first Team are sitting back against the likes of Brentford. This was more like our first Team being pushed back against Real Madrid and putting their body's on the line with last ditch tackles against vastly superior opposition until eventually being worn down and conceding a late goal. I was very proud of the young lads tonight and they should be very proud of their performance.

  37. Please sack him Tony. Im dead inside when it comes to Villa again. Couldnt careless if we win or lose, I used to get such a buzz when we won and would be in the depths of despair when we lost but now I feel nothing. Get a manager that will set us up intelligently with a plan to score goals by creating as many chances as possible, not this anti-football shite thats relying on scrappy goals and constantly booting the ball out of defence.
