  1. Our away shirt should be Man U’s home kit with the Villa badge on, we might deceive/confuse enough dodgy refs to get some penalties from it

  6. Just skimmed the last two pages and it sounds like we're bringing in Maddison, Iheanacho and Harvey Barnes. I imagine some would still complain about the lack of a 6'4" midfield enforcer.

  7. DM - Nakamba (too limited, need better, happy to move on or keep in reserve) DM/CM - Luiz (persevere with him at DM or position at CM and rotate with others) CM - McGinn & Sanson (neither are DMs, box to box). These pair will be competing and rotating, Dean loves McGinn and I’m sure Sanson wasn’t signed as a backup. AM - ? Ok, so looking here the only decent or potential quality DM we have is Luiz (for a top half+ competing PL team). If he can rediscover and even improve upon his form during the backend of last season then that would be excellent. We’ve seen how remain

  8. I know I'd normally say save the crazy design for the 3rd kit, go as wild as you like there but... whatever happens, let's not have another 3rd kit that looks like a jizz-stained rag. That's my baseline.

  21. He's had to play with an out-of-form/shape/fitness McGinn and a non-existent-most-of-the-time Barkley. Deserves some slack. He's is 100% unequivocally good enough for us as a CDM.

  23. 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

  24. All of this. I follow a new music thread elsewhere because I’m trying to keep up and hear new bands that I might get to see live one day. I was obsessive about discovering new music when I was a teenager but now it really feels like I’ve pretty much naturally settled on what I’m going to like the most. It’s unimaginable to me that a new band will come around tomorrow and up displacing the likes of The National and Los Campesinos! as my favourite artists. That doesn’t stop me listening to new music, I just find that the vast majority is an instant turn off for me. That being said, the pure

  28. Lets be honest, they're both horrendous. Home looks like a cheap Wet Spam mock up and the away something that's been puked up and very similar to Burnley's third top this year. Absolutely disgusting.

  30. Personally I'd like a 92' kit remake with the string neck and blue circle. It appeared a lot between 1892 and the 1950s but only once since. Needs a rerelease in my opinion.

  32. I think there's a case for the police being able to discern that Dalian was in an unsettled state; the reports are that he was agitated, had smashed a window and was claiming that he was the messiah and could not be hurt. There's definitely a case for the police feeling threatened as Atkinson is reported to have begun walking at them at a very quick pace, almost a run, and he's a big guy. They initially ran and he pursued them. But the police are trained to deal with situations like this, they're equipped for situations like this, neither of them to my knowledge were 'rookie' cops. T

  33. Looking at the recent relegations from the premier league 2019/20 Norwich, Watford, Bournemouth 2018/19 Cardiff, Fulham, Huddersfield 2017/18 Swansea, Stoke, West Brom 2016/17 Hull, Middlesbrough, Sunderland 2015/16 Aston Villa, Newcastle, Norwich 2014/15 Hull, Burnley, Queens Park Rangers In the previous five seasons to this one, not once did more than one relegated team come straight back up, and I think in three of them none of the relegated teams came back up at all, and if you go further back pretty sure it will follow a similar pattern. The major

  34. Being scared is one thing. Could the officers have been scared or felt threateened? Yeah probably. Does that justify tasering him for 35 seconds and then (possibly) beating him to death? No The officers may have felt threatened when they fired the taser for the 3rd time after it not affecting him the first 2, but they wouldn't remain terrified for 30 seconds with their finger on the trigger

  39. The BBC headlines always make it sound Israel is on the receiving end of attacks and it isn’t stated that to be retaliation (and they don’t put it that way either) until the body of the text, when the former is still stated first. Israel-Gaza: Rockets pound Israel after militants killed The same applies to a report yesterday. I imagine this isn’t inadvertent.

  40. What they usually mean in the physio world is a gradual recovery from injury as opposed to say 4 weeks rest then straight back in. Minor increases to volume of training and things like that.

  41. There's always been a major difference in money between the premier league and championship, that's not something new to last season. As countless championship teams have seen money doesn't guarantee promotion from that division.

  43. I can’t tell if you are being sarcastic or not? Are you saying Rover wasn’t mismanaged into ruin? That it was the workers fault that it went bust? I’m asking as someone who grew up in Rednal, whose Dad worked at Rover since the mid 80’s until it closed, as did the dads of most kids I grew up with. It kept a whole community in existence around the longbridge area and what those in charge did along with the Chinese investors is something that will stay with me until I die.

  44. It’s hard to not get excited about what Dean could do with our lineup if we brought in a CDM like Bissouma, a creative RW/10 like Buendia, and another finisher like Tammy. Tons of interesting 4-3-3 or 4-2-2-2 configurations that we could roll out. Imagine what Tammy/Ollie could do with Jack and Buendia serving up chances on a platter.

  46. Tensions have been rising due a couple of matters - predominately a long running and bitter legal dispute, and Israeli police actions during Ramadan. The legal dispute, long story short, relates to a properties in a disputed section of Jerusalem. East Jerusalem is a particularly contested part of Palestine/Israel - it's predominately occupied by Palestinians, but was annexed in the 60s by the Israelis (who now celebrate that with a nationalist 'holiday', which was the other day...) as Israel claims Jerusalem, in it's entirety, is it's capital - whilst the Palestinians hope that Jerusalem
