  7. Has he really made that many similar mistakes this season? I feel it gets blown out of proportion sometimes and it's easy to label someone to be prone to mistakes. Everyone does it, sometimes it gets exploited, sometimes not. He gets cought out sometimes when he tries to play the ball instead of just kicking it away, if we demand our defenders to play it 100% safe all the time we can call Bruce back. Aren't we just one or two clean sheets from breaking the record this season? Only Abu Dhabi FC and Chelski have conceded less this season. Mings has played a central role in that, having a super s

  9. It was a typical day on the training ground. The gaffer was overseeing the squad as they went through their paces. It had been a good start to the new season, the team had won their first five matches with their star striker Stevo having scored seventeen goals already. There was a concern from the coaching staff that the players might be becoming overconfident. The manager watched as Stevo scored another from the halfway line and wanted to make an example of this talented youngster with his rugged good looks that has captured the country’s heart and imagination. He waited as the applause

  11. Watkins is not the finished article by a long shot. Has flaws in his game. However its his first season in the prem, as a lone striker. He's only 24, his work rate is phenomenal and he gets in the right positions more often than not. He's scored double figures already and has also hit the woodwork 6 or 7 times. His ceiling is high and with more experience and coaching i think he could be brilliant for years to come

  12. How long do we think it would take to put an effective system of passport management into place? Three months? Six months? Something that could be operational for everyone in the country, and for every business or location? Something supported by clear legislation and authority that could be implemented by a restaurant seater greeter and understood by the customer? A year? In three months time every adult that wants it will have been vaccinated. I'm sure there's some devil in the detail, but my broad understanding is that if there are eighty of you in a pub and two haven't been vaccinated

  13. These arguments as to who has had it worse are pretty pointless and have been done before. Tell the 80 year old who has lost a husband or wife of 60 years without being able to be by their bedside that they've had it easier than the 21 year old who can't go to the pub. Tell the lady who got told that she'd miscarried without her partner being allowed to go to the appointment with her that she's had it easier than either of the above. I'm not sure what it achieves trying to play one age group off against another and that's coming from someone who isn't a lot older than the group of people

  16. Some good quotes here from Emi Martinez... “He’s a good boy. He was born here (in Birmingham) and has loved the club since he was little. He gives everything for them. He is a player that you always need on and off the pitch.” “Villa are on the rise, it is clear from the numbers. We are doing important things and next year knowing each other more we will be fighting higher. Jack wants to be a part of it. He wants to be part of making Villa grand.” Click >>

  17. He is such a funny character, I couldn't tell if he is 20 or 50, could be either a fashionista or a bricklayer in his home land, is Egyptian but calls himself Trezeguet, plays with the confidence like he thinks he is Ronaldo and tries to go past players all the time, but fails 9 times out of 10, the tenth time he succeeds with something making him look amazing, when he is happy he looks like the hapipest man alive, his sad face looks like he is absolutely devestated, sometimes it looks like he can't control a football at all, sometimes his touches are exquisite, he runs around, fumbles, falls

  18. I have all the mental health issues with a few more on order from Amazon so let me just say this. I'm more upset that @Demitri_C wrote "I cant believe people want to stand outside in the freezing cold like sardines." than I am when people make any kind of "they need a head check" remark. Sardines don't stand . They are marine based. Penguins were right there man . They were right there ! It's like Steve Irwin died for nothing.

  21. Jack has signed for Man City for fifty quid whilst on a vodka and painkiller bender. Man City have agreed to loan him on to Man United for the first half of the season and then Liverpool from January. There’s also a rumour that Jack has been sleeping with Gareth Southgate’s wife who in turn had caught Southgate cracking one off over pictures of Mason Mount in a Grealish England shirt. Southgate strongly denied he was wearing a waistcoat signed by Mount at the time.

  22. This. I don't have any serious mental health issues beyond very occasional bouts of anxiety and/or feeling down - but they invariably pass without need for intervention. The women in my life however, all seem to have struggled (go figure, eh?) The missus went through hell with hormonal rages and black depression, which used to do my head in, but she refused to seek any medical help, for fear of the stigma of being labelled a 'mad woman'. Then she got breast cancer (successfully treated), and the subsequent homone-suppressant drugs triggered an instant menopause - which magically stopped the mo

  25. This is another thing that ALL supporters think, that their club is the one that bucks the trend and will give a winless team three points, or allows a striker who hasn’t scored in 10 games to get a hat trick. I bet Liverpool supporters were thinking “Well Villa haven’t scored 7 in a single game for decades. Of course we wait until we’re reigning champions turn up and break that run and embarrass ourselves...” I bet Leeds supporters were bemoaning the fact they bucked the trend and let a Grealish-less Villa take three points “Oh well of course it’s got to be us that let’s them do th

  26. I'm afraid, my friend, that this is where you look silly, because I don't recall ever "stamping and moaning about not getting anywhere"! You seem to automatically jump to anyone that criticises Smith is, and always has been, a "Smith hater" and give no consideration at all to the validity of the underlying criticism! I like Smith - I like him as a person, I like the way he goes out to win, I love that he is one of our own and I believe he has a good relationship with the players. I have never, yet, called for him to be sacked/replaced and will not, at least at present. I just want him

  28. There’s some valid criticism of Smith. I think there’s something in the questioning of the rigidity of his system, dropping an in form El Ghazi to bring back Barkley, over reliance on Grealish....those sort of things, people might not agree with it, I’m not sure it’s unique to Smith, but at least there’s some construction to the criticism. It’s not calling for his head all the time or saying he’s a poor manager. That stuff undermines the more legitimate, reasoned criticism. Just over two years ago, it was being discussed in here whether Dean Smith was the right man to win promotion. Now w

  29. I strongly disagree with that first line. I have no idea if Smith will get us to the next level, but why the hell is that a worry, our 2nd season back in the league? This is where this spoilt child comparison comes from. What's with the demand for this instant success? Why can't we accept that its a long term plan? If he can't take us there, then he will rightly be replaced but worrying about that now is again, this doomsday scenario to justify moaning. Let's not forget you turned on him 3 months into the job.

  31. So what you're saying is that the established Big 6 clubs who have been investing in their squads for the last decade (at least), while we were fighting relegation or in the Championship, have more squad depth than us!? Come on, listen to what people are saying here. Nobody thinks Smith has built this club into the new Real Madrid. But he's being held to standards that just aren't fair, intelligent or reasonable. They don't stack up with where we are in our development. People have got way ahead of themselves - largely because of his success.

  32. Yesterday Liverpool brought on Thiago (£25m) and Mane (£34m), and left Oxlade-Chamberlain (£35m) and Naby Keita (£53m) on the bench. Virgil van Dijk (£75m) was out injured. We've got pretty much what we paid for so far, and attracted players of a level I would have expected for where we're at as a club. Whether Smith is playing the right system for the players currently at his disposal is a more pertinent question for me.

  34. Who are these people who spend money that they earned on flowers, then get in a queue to leave them for a man they never met, and who lived a life of privilege from taxes paid by the same working people? It's incredible brain-washing. Miraculous. I know I've lived in the US since '99 but it just looks absolutely ABSURD. Surely every time one of them dies (or is accused of being a pedo) it should prompt the conversation about dissolving the whole bloody ridiculous institution. They'd all be loaded with all of land they still own.

  36. I've had to stick the shopping channel on to escape it as it is everywhere. A 99 year old bloke dies is hardly a shock is it. I posted in the deadpool thread that I have zero time for the royals, or respect for most of them, least of all the massive racist that has snuffed it this morning. We will now be subjected to wall to wall coverage of him for days on end. The lucky bastard led a life of privilege and had a great innings. F all to mourn.

  39. Mings has been one of our players of the season. He has made about 5 mistakes all season. Not many will make less. In fact one of the defenders who has made less mistakes plays with him. It's no accident Konsa has become so good with Mings alongside him. Natural leader and is often talking, cajoling, in fact one passage of play yesterday McGinn had the ball but no runners it was Mings who initiated the movement by just shouting 'move!'.
