  1. That's just so silly. Look I can understand why you might have voluntarily expunged our crappest from your memory, but Leonhardsen and Mark Kinsella immediately say hello. Isiah Osbourne, we still have Tshibola on our books ffs. Salifou, Jean II Macroon ( forgotten actual name ) Djemba-Djemba, Berson?( I liked Berson tbf ), Chris Herd, just a few others who were actively bad or not good enough.Bjarnason has offered more than all those easily. he's far from the best, but if he ends up playing occasionally this season where injuries happen, I'm fine with it. I'm so bored with absur

  3. I think you’ve misunderstood what @villareport posts on his twitter account. He is basically a Villa news aggregator (a twitter version of Newsnow) and merely posts what is reported on Villa across the web. He never claims to verify any of the information as that is not his purpose; he simply posts Villa news reported, it’s up to the reader to decide the veracity if the information. Think you should understand what certain accounts do prior to unfairly judging them. Personally, I think his account provides a quick and immediate summary of Villa bits and pieces in one place and is pretty useful

  5. We need to stop bitching about Xia selling any sell on clauses. Xia kept us out of bankruptcy long enough for us to get our current owners in. Wyness wanted us to go into admin so he could get his mates to buy us on the cheap. Xia has many faults but he was a breath of fresh air at the time, allowing Villa Fans to believe again. The first year bills were paid and he was pumping money in and we did a lot of Spending that first Summer and then Bruce in that first Winter transfer time. Something happened where he was no longer able to pump money in etc but he allowed Bruce to bri

  9. You are not wrong in your appraisal of Neil Maupay, he will be every defenders nightmare, small, quick, nippy and able to turn defenders inside out at times, just look back when you played us at Griffin Park and look at the reaction of Mings when he done him up like a kipper and scored. We know It’s on the cards he will be on his way to you once we have signed our new forward, that’s why he’s not be involved in pre season matches, as we are protecting him from injury to get a price that is suitable to both sides. If you do get him you will not be disappointed, he’s the hardest workin

  16. Re: the 3 at the back option. There's no point working on Plan B until you're happy with Plan A. Four at the back still allows us to play with one DM and one striker (4-1-4-1, 4-3-3), two pivots and a striker (4-2-3-1) or two box-to-box CMs and two strikers (4-4-2). And you can vary what types of wingers you use - Jota will tuck in and do more defensively than the other wingers. That's plenty of variation to worry about already. With so many new players joining, I don't see the benefit of playing around with the defensive line on top of that. Especially since Mings is the only player

  19. 2019 has been quite a difficult and stressful year for me, arguably the worst of my adult life. Today I had probably my proudest moment on a personal level, collecting the keys for my first home. I don't have anything there yet. But I went after work and just sat on the living room floor for over an hour. It was great.

  24. I just think Brentford are a bit more ambitious than a lot of you give them credit for. Sure, they have been selling huge amounts of players every year, but they are now at a place they have easily the most talented, competitive team in their history. With 3 years left on his contract and with far fewer key players leaving this summer (as well as completely breaking their transfer policy by getting Jansson) I think they'll be gambling that they can get up this year and if not they can sell him next summer. They have good cash reserves and a pretty much paid for stadium on the way.

  25. I have been watching a lot of Japanese videos about culture and food and stuff on YouTube the last few months, mainly 'Only in Japan' and 'TabiEats', now and again the missus' lad watches a few with me but outside of that never talks about it. Anyway, me and a friend were going to Yo! Sushi in bullring for lunch today and he asked to come at the last minute. Okay. So we sat down and picked up a few things and out of nowhere he started using the chopsticks like a pro, asked the staff to bring him some takoyaki (fried octopus doughballs) and Ramune and then the best bit, he busted out the

  32. Does anyone have conversations on the phone and you don’t know who you’re talking to? I had a number ring me earlier which I didn’t know. The other person obviously knew me and asked me if I could get him a bag of cement this week. I said yes no problem mate. I then asked how he was doing, and he said he’s alright, he’s just trying to sort himself out, and he’s chilling with his dad. The convo ended with i’ll let you know about the cement, and he said cheers mate. I haven’t got a clue who it was. It’s not the first time I’ve done this . For the life of me I haven’t got a clue who it was.

  34. I dont really care about his intentions, he was on the verge of ending Villa as we know it. In my opinion what he did borders being criminal, if it not de facto was. On top of that he was full of crap giving out promises that he no way would be able to fulfill. He expceted us fans to buy into his lies and keep putting our souls and our money into the club. No matter what his intentions may or may not have been or what role the change of policy in China may have played, he was a con man. In my eyes he does not deserve the slightest respect, but should be glad that he is not behind bars.

  36. Even with a new leader Labour would not win an election. It's gone beyond that right now. A new leader would only stem the flow of votes from the party. New policies entirely required and we're years off that happening. In terms of Brexit it might be best in the short term if Corbyn stayed put and destroyed the party's public standing completely. Labour has almost destroyed itself in its Welsh heartlands, an opinion poll was published the other day that gives Plaid the most seats if a Welsh Assembly vote was held now. Let that sink in... Plaid are currently looking like the party most likely t

  37. Right in front of the Holte End, I still feel totally puzzled how the ref could not give a penalty for such a blatant foul. Honestly, how could any referee in the world miss the evidence? “He played ‘the advantage’ and missed” would have been the referee’s thought. Yes, because the shot was delivered with his shorts waistband around his knees! Where’s the advantage in that? FFS! One of the few occasions I would support ‘going down’ instead of attempting a shot.

  38. Interesting! I've not seen or heard about this very rare and specific form of AIDS for a long time. But you can be sure it's definitely AIDS. It's a kind of a neural brain AIDS. Usually you get it from a tick that climbed into your ear one night and set up shop in your cerebellum. I wouldn't worry about it.

  39. I honestly think keeping McGinn can be the difference between surviving our initial season, or getting relegated again. It's one of the few British football grafters we got, and he has genuine quality. He also is well drilled in our tactics, has good relations with other key players like Grealish and El Ghazi. Selling him would be utterly foolish even if it was financially sound. Fortunately we won't be selling him, so take that talk and listen to Mr. Gold.
