    This thread is getting more and more depressing by each day. Have we really learned nothing from the past 10 years? DS may well turn out to be real dud, or he may go on to emulate Guardiola, it's really anyone's guess at this point, but to write him off at first sight of trouble, is nothing short of embarrassing. We are after all, only a measly FOUR points from the playoffs

    We're not fickle - We just don't like us.

    Such is the league competition format.

    Let the fickle and non DS supporters bicker amongst themselves in this thread. They will come around once we are in some form again.. as fickle fans normally do.

    I can't see the logic in opening the Upper Trinity - there are still 3,000 tickets left elsewhere in the ground; a strange one that. Interesting game this - there's a sort of meh around the whole place, season drifting into nothingness, nowt to play for, nowt to get excited about. We're not far off the playoffs points-wise but we're not looking like we're going to challenge for them, it's all a bit waiting for 2019-20. But. Win this and I think you might get a bit of buzz back, Sheffield United are good and we know it, if we can beat them, not only does it keep us within touching distance of the top six, but it might give the place a little bit of spark. A big win could set the season on fire and any kind of win will blow though the embers and provide a bit of warmth. A defeat leaves us counting the days until the fixtures come out and hoping Liverpool foul up. I know which of those two scenarios I'd prefer.

    Which is ironic, because white men raping black women was practically a national sport during the slavery era.

    Referee saw nothing wrong; review saw nothing wrong; nothing to see here. Personally, I think it is time for Aston Villa fans to move on - there will be plenty of `fans' of other clubs who will be happy to prolong the debate.

    I'd whole heartedly agree with the second sentence. With Churchill it wasn't just the casual racism, which was fairly 'normal' for the times he lived in. Not unlike 1960's Ireland I'd imagine. It was also sending in troops to 'aid' the police to break up strikes or hunt down anarchists etc.. It's not always that easy to delve in to the stories, they tend to get whitewashed even where there are records. When he sent the cavalry (literally) in to Tonypandy to break up a riot, there were no reported injuries. But the 'riot' had finished the day before and had actually been aimed at a couple of specific individuals. But the cavalry were there anyway so why not charge around a bit. No injuries? If you reported to the company's private hospital, you'd be arrested and your family kicked out of the mine company house. Even the siege of Sydney Street, he sent troops in to do the job of the police. Again, this was on the TV recently, but they failed to mention it was Churchill sending troops on to the streets and also slightly failed to mention the people eventually tried were released. If you got off in 1911, when the other side was basically Churchill and the army, I'm guessing the case was fairly flimsy. Lots of anecdotal stuff about Churchill, about the british army beheading 'terrorists' and about the army being used on the streets to 'help' private mine owners. Strangely, official records are a bit sketchy. But anyway, that's strayed way off topic.

    If its any use, Cameron Desmond Archer's birth was registered in 2002 at Walsall. This would fit in with the December 2001 DOB stated earlier (birth being registered in the new year).

    Personally I think we should let Liam Neeson deal with the vicious thug. If the latest bedwetting, hysterical, ignore-all-context-but-explode-with-justice-and-vengeance-rage Twitterstorm is anything to go by, that appalling, unreformed, dyed in the wool racist would love to cosh the living shite out of him just for being not white.

    Seems like he's being 'honest' about a past event and past prejudices and talking about his disgust/ remorse for feeling that way, explaining the context and explaining why it was wrong to feel that way. I really don't see the issue here however I can see why it has gone down so badly in the current climate, which is utterly devoid of critical thinking, logic and any sort of emotional intelligence around these sorts of discussions.

    I'm not sure I even believe Neeson's story. Which makes it even weirder.

    what barnes says actually makes a bit of sense for a change but **** me its naive from Neeson if thats how he meant it, theres no way he would ever escape the social media trial and anything he does now is just digging, i've seen people having a sexist pop at him now because in a TV interview talking about it he refers to the interviewer as "the lady journalist" i really really dont see the need for neeson to ever tell that story, the racism stuff aside its just not a subject that should you talk about in that forum and to tie it to a film promotional tour on the basis that its a revenge film is incredibly poor taste, horrific judgement by him all round edit - the other thing that john barnes said which isnt on the other page is an attack on winston churchill, words to the effect of lets tear down the statue of that white supremacist and mass murderer while we are at it, i think thats the 3rd time this year already i've someone on TV having a pop at churchill, not sure if brexit is stirring up some churchill spirit right wing nonsense and some people are coming out with some painful truths that they dont like to teach us at school, seems strange that its causing debate now

    Perhaps you should change your technique and test it out by making a funny comment and see if he notices.

    Fine margins pal. Take Pogba and Rashford out the team and those wins they been scraping by the odd goal become draws. Same with us. Add jack back and all those draws can become wins. Many aren’t having it but I don’t think you can underestimate the impact of losing big players.

    I'll do it for you. Messi is strong as an ox, and Xavi and Iniesta had players like Busquets, Yaya Toure, and Mascherano supporting them. They played in Spain where referees blow for everything. And they're some of the most gifted footballers of all time. We're in the English Championship, and soft players get bullied unless they have some support. It's a fair point about Carroll's physique - I don't see him working alongside Hourihane. Whether you're playing 4-1-4-1 or 4-2-3-1 or 4-3-3 or 4-4-2 or whatever, you need at least one of your centre mids to be a physical, tackling midfielder who senses danger and holds the team together. I can't think of a single successful team that doesn't have a player like this.

    Tyrone Mings was man of the match on Saturday. It was good to see a commanding Centre Back display in a Claret and Blue shirt for a change. The referee said "nothing to see here" about the tackle in question by his lack of punishment .... the FA review board had a close retrospective look and also said "nothing to see here", yet here we are still playing guessing games with the character of a player who we need to make permanent in a few months time. It's time to move on.
