  1. Transfer Speculation Summer 2017

    This whole budget thing isn't a big deal. If it's £1million then that's fine, but that will of course be on top of what we make from sales. We have a LOT of players to get rid off this summer, and hopefully those on loan will be purchased outright, which will easily give us £8-10mill. That should be fine for us to go for the players we are likely to be able to get in.

  3. The Careers/Jobs thread

    So it was a good meeting. They understood what I was concerned about with the current goings-on that we have. They outlined the plans going forward, what other areas I can be exposed to. Stated clearly that they did not want me to leave.... I think I do need to stay where I am. I'm not sure if moving to a company with only 1 IT person doing the internal support will be the way to go. I think applications etc is the strongest route at the minute - esecially with learning Dynamics now.
  4. The Careers/Jobs thread

    VT - I'm stressing, and I really could do with some sound advice from knowledgable people! I'm 25, working in recruitment, but I have hit a bit of a wall. I'm thinking I do not want to be working within this arena anymore. I don't have a degree, which limits me massively as far as I am concerned because every job I see they want someone of 'degree calibre'. I have never known what I wanted to do, I just drifted through school and got myself 10 GCSEs then took a couple of A-levels with the intention of going to uni. I had a place confirmed but then was offered a full time job, which I took. I have absolutely no idea of what to do with my life, I have so much ambition and desire to succeed, but god knows what in. It's stressing me out more now because the missus wants to buy a house etc and I am a little worried about losing my job for whatever reason and then not being able to find anything else. Does anybody have any sound advice to give, or know of any opportunities within the Nhants, oxfordshire or Buckinghamshire areas that might be coming up? Ironic really considering I work in recruitment eh? Thanks all.
  5. The Careers/Jobs thread

    So, I decided to make my boss aware that I had an offer, but that I had absolutely no idea what to do and what path I want to go down for the rest of my career... mentioned that my motivation for looking was the current insecurities that we had in the company. Got a meeting with him tomorrow and one of the directors. Anyone got any ideas of how I can stand my ground here and get a good outcome for myself? Hah! Worried they will just turn around and tell me to jog on...
  6. The Careers/Jobs thread

    Cheers @Midfielder appreciate the response. I got the offer!! So, now have a hell of a decision to make. I'm quite loyal, and hate letting people down, which is what I feel l will be doing should I decide to jump ship. I'm not very good with change, and worry about being on a probation period just in case they decide I am crap and don't want to keep me. No idea what to do now... the new role only has 1 bloke doing the IT for a growing business, so I'd be the first on in to help with the support of it all... Much like the meme - this job would be more face to face rather than remote, which is a good thing! Cheers @TrentVilla as well!
  7. The Careers/Jobs thread

    I'm in interesting situation at the moment. Not sure what to do. The company I work for, our particular dept. has just lost a few clients who have gone to our competitors, and as such, we have had to reduce our headcount. What this has meant is that some management has gone and also our IT support teams have had to lose a couple of heads. The team I work in - application support - aren't losing any heads, because what we do is very niche and we are about to take on internal support for the wider business, focusing on Microsoft Dynamics. Now, I had pre-empted this, and had an interview in a town closer to home, but slightly less money and it is getting back into the more hands on IT stuff, working for a non IT company doing their internal IT support. Do I take this, or do I stay where I am, not particularly enjoying application support?

    What about buying them out, or merging?

    Has anybody got any tips for running up a travelator??
  10. 17/18 Promotion Charge

    Bookies seem to like Wolves a bit don't they? Derby as well. Norwich I probably get at 12/1. Have wolves got bank or something?
  11. Steve Bruce

    There is indeed a big difference between actual possession football over sterile possession. So, why can't we play possession football and be creative? Why do we win all our matches without dominating? Also, I don't think we have done very well against the teams in the top 6 this season? Maybe someone has some quick stats that they can share to back this up... interesting that these are all teams who tend to dominate their matches, though. I think passing is important as well, I don't think we have made it over the 200 mark in many games this season, which suggests we try to be too quick and not really think about what we are going to do with an attack. Again, I don't know why we need to be like that but, we won't be going up anytime soon playing like this. I hate being negative, but, I was expecting a lot more from us by now.
  12. Steve Bruce

    We made 188 passes today, Fulham made 650 or so.... Better sides play possession football!!! We will struggle next season if we do not start playing proper football soon.
  13. Turkey

    Villa booked for a family holiday to Turkey. Little bit nervous about it to be honest rather than excited. Kinda don't want to go!!
  14. IT Infrastructure

    I was wondering if anyone could hit me with some info on IT infrastructure setups. There are a few bits I haven't got my head round yet whilst working in the IT world (partly because I'm mainly working on applications) but I am keen to learn this stuff properly. What does a typical infrastructure look like and what's needed to create a platform for a whole bunch of clients? (Whether it be physical or virtual). Plus let's face it - talking about this stuff is fun!
  15. Match Thread: Villa v Norwich

    We're being absolutely smashed at the moment. Need to start playing actual football...

    I don't understand
  17. The push for the Play offs ?

    I see it as though we are in our own mini league now from 10th - 15th place. I'd like us to finish above Derby. I think Preston and Norwich are too good for us to be able to catch at the moment. If we can finish 10th, I'd be pretty happy with that considering the changes we have made this season.
  18. IT Infrastructure

    It's all about cloud at the moment l I find. Everyone seems to want it. So if we ignored what was on the users session - and look more on the actual setup, what would that look like from an infrastructure perspective. Like my previous employers which was a rec company, for example, we had our thin clients and then we would log into our sessions via Citrix and then work off that for the day. I just want it clear in my head how that would have been put into place... so our IT provider were responsible for issues, but assuming they had a whole bunch of suppliers that did different bits.
  19. IT Infrastructure

    Cheers limpid so let's say I'm an entrepreneur (Im not, by any means) and I wanted to setup my own IT business. All it would be is to provide support for small businesses and give them a platform to work in - say through Citrix for ease. So ignoring applications for the moment - let's just pretend it's basics (office for business and internet access). What would the process be in setting this up?

    Hah - howcome?

    What's the show that has the woman in it that people always post gifs of?
  22. The push for the Play offs ?

    Who else reckons we should start a 'what we need for next season' topic? Although we put two past him today, I quite like Westwood of Sheff Weds. Think he would be a decent addition for us and our promotion push next season. (That's if Sheff Weds don't get promoted of course).
  23. I'm afraid to say they are facts Stevo...
  24. Less than 100 passes completed that half, Huddersfield have 189. 38% possession as well. Jeeeesus wept.
  25. Steve Bruce

    Two games coming up that I am currently expecting us to lose, despite current form. I still don't think we are a good footballing side yet, Huddersfield and Sheff Weds are. (We were beat on possession and passes completed by the bottom team who have half the points of the team above them today). Lets see if we can get a surprise. Expectations set. I'd like to be proven wrong.
