  1. If you can’t derive joy or positivity from that, football may not be for you.

  2. I watched his game with my brand new twin boys who arrived Saturday morning. Made it home in time and despite feeling completely overwhelmed and being tied up in feeding, I was adamant me and my boys would be cheering us on. Unbelievably delighted with the win and though we played some beautiful stuff throughout and for the first time since Burnley away in January we created multiple very good chances and should’ve been out of sight by HT. Traore showed his craft and silky skills but always had a positive end result out of those moves, Barkley looking much closer to the player we had back in D

  3. We invite the Albion to Villa Park on Friday evening for the FA Youth Cup Semi Final in what should be a heck of a game. Unlike at senior level, the FA Youth Cup remains the biggest competition for young players in England and it comes with massive prestige. The game will be broadcast on BT Sport live on Friday but sadly won't be available through AVTV as BT have bought exclusivity. This is the furthest we've been in the competition since 2010-11 when a team featuring Callum Robinson, Samir Carruthers and Daniel Johnson lost a two legged fixture against a Sheffield United side capta

  4. I wonder how many pages this thread would have grown had we lost to Everton. Jesus, this thread is so embarrassing. So many people so entrenched in their positions, totally unwilling to look at the fairly average squad (Bar Grealish) we have that is currently sitting in the top half of the PL, and then criticizing the manager who got us there. I get that you all want Europe, but the teams above us have had a decade of PL money to cement their positions and their squads are so much stronger than ours, it's not even funny. Perhaps, wait a few seasons, until we get over the FFP hu

  5. Aston Villa chief executive Christian Purslow says the proposed Super League is a "grotesque concept". Speaking to BBC Radio Four, he said: "These proposals do away with sporting merit. It would enable a small number of clubs to be in this competition come what may and, for millions of people in football, that goes against everything the sport means and stands for. "The idea is that the uncertainty that comes with sport, that makes it so compelling, that we all love, is actually damaging to the business model of these huge clubs. "So the scheme is designed to take away that unce

  6. If we said back in October 2018, we are going to appoint a manager who will have us top half of the table by 2021's end, what would you of said back then? What about, if we had said that en route to this standing in the Premier League, we will have to overcome a dramatically large turnover in player personnel in our first season back in the PL, of which no other team that season would experience the like of, where few playing personnel would have any experience playing in the PL, and the squad as a unit would have spent, for the most part, less than a season playing together, and the mana

  7. Love this guy. Everything he does is entertaining, including his mistakes. I find it quite sad we have fans that don't seem to be able to enjoy his highs because they're so desperate to highlight the lows and 'prove' he's shit.

  8. I hit Level 50 today. Odd to think I've been mooching around for half a century. There's been a fair few times I didn't think I'd make it this far, but at the moment I'm really glad I have. Cheers.

  9. I'm sick of reading that they shouldn't be punished because it's not the fans or the players fault. Sheffield Wednesday are going to be relegated to league 1 because of a points deduction. That's not the fault of the fans and players, yet no one kicked up a fuss about it. **** these 6 clubs. They deserve to be punished. They tried to destroy football in this country and happily would have if people hadn't united against it.

  12. I genuinely thought we played really well. Battered them 2nd half. With a bit more luck, we could have scored 5. Also the constant calls for Smith to be sacked, really are beyond pathetic. We don't deserve him.

  20. The thing which really gets me riled up is that teams such as Birmingham City who broke FFP rules were deducted 9 points I believe for spending more than they should for their own gain. There were no arguments at the time that it was unfair because their 9 supporters had nothing to do with it. Owners of football clubs make bad decisions, the football club as a result receives a punishment for that. Not the owners. This scummy 6 tried to effectively destroy the football pyramid within this country purely for their own gain and what's worse is that they would have negatively impacted so ma

  22. https://www.independent.co.uk/sport/football/european/european-super-league-latest-news-b1833392.html If they do it, then I think the existing football structure has to take a strong stance - these teams shouldn't be allowed to compete in existing European competition, or in the FA Cup and the players involved shouldn't be allowed to play in International football. This has been a threat since the CEO's of Europe's biggest clubs realised they can't afford to be involved in leagues where there is the possibility of change, where there are chances that they don't succeed in perpetui

  25. For me, it's not that I don't understand that players will be linked and that it happens everywhere, it's just that there's a massive difference in how we should treat the sources of the stories, there are serious footballs journalists, there are less reputable football journalists and then there's Football Insider. Football Insider this year have: Purslow wanting to sack Dean Smith and his job on the line with Gerrard on standby Grealish going to Manchester United in a swap deal with Lingard Chukwuemeka, JPB and Ramsey all leaving for next to nothing Luiz to City,

  27. Ashley Preece on the C & B podcast mentioned Freddie did a Q & A with Strasbourg supporters (where he’s getting rave reviews) recently, telling them he wants to come back to Villa next season and fight for his place. He backs himself to compete with Cash and I hope he does, never faulted the bloke’s attitude or commitment and was disappointed when he went out on loan. If he’s used the time to improve himself further then it’s one less place to fill this summer. Guilbert in.

  28. The new performance centre was officially opened today by a fan who presumably had won a competition. I'm not sure the video quite captures the scale of the facilities at BH now are, but it's nice to see them formally opened up at least.

  29. Me, the wife and the little one had a cracking pub lunch today for the first time in over 12 months. Sun was shining and the food/beers were great. Afterwards we went for a walk along the river and up past Harden waterfalls which was really nice. Even having to carry a 3.5 year old up most the way was enjoyable as he snuggled down and went to sleep. However, the most enjoyable bit was about 3/4 of the way through when after carrying him for about 30/40 minutes, I passed him to the wife to carry for a second to give my back a break. He woke up smiled at her and then did the best Mr

  33. The Smith out brigade absolutely baffle me. Like 1000% baffle me. We have a Villa fan managing the club who is doing a phenomenal job. We are only 6 points off last years runaway champions who have been in the league over 20 years, we dropped out and have had to rebuild from literally scratch. What’s been achieved this season is incredible and that’s with our star player missing for over a quarter of the season. Why on Earth would you want to replace this manager while we are still in the process of rebuilding. The fact we are still in with a faint shout of Europe
