    Keinan Davis

    He reminds me of a young Hesky. Now I know big Emile gets a lot of stick on here but he was good enough to play at the top level for most of his career and also play umpteen games for England. If Davis can match that without being prolific, then he will have done well. He is a great option from the bench, when you are defending a lead. Defenders hate playing against him.
  2. It was clear from the start that this was going to happen. They just don’t look like they want to be there. We only have ourselves to blame. To be honest, Rotherham are do poor that we could still get something here if we actually make an effort. The performance of Tammy was nothing short of disgraceful. I would bring Big Davis on at HT and go for it.
  3. This is Villa we are talking about. Beat Leeds, Norwich, Bristol and Sheff W. Lose the rest! I am only half joking

    Tyrone Mings

    He is very good. Hope he stays next season regardless of which division we are in.

    Glenn Whelan

    So pleased for this guy. He has really been targeted unfairly by some in my view but he is a real pro. Great today

    Dean Smith

    I have given Dean a fair bit of stick but the last 2 home games have been sooooo enjoyable. I really hope that we can keep it going now. Still need to find consistent performances but the last 4 matches have really helped. Nearly in our own hands now. Well done Dean. Please continue to prove me wrong.

    Glenn Whelan

    Fair enough. I totally disagree. You really thought he was awful?! Surprised by that assessment. Didn’t think any of them were awful. The two wide players were the worst performers in my view but it is impossible to judge how much their performance was affected by the incident! Difficult environment for the players and I thought Glenn stood up pretty well.

    I thought he did ok today, as he usually does. He is also very professional, a calming influence and clearly someone who cares. He always fronts up which is exactly what you need on days like today.
  9. Jack’s goal was unbelievable but I actually enjoyed Tammy’s goal more. I am not saying that it was better than Jack’s obviously but I do enjoy goals like Tammy’s more. It was a class team goal from back to front that tore Derby apart, leading to a tap in.

    Dean Smith

    I kind of agree with this but what he says in public and what he actually thinks are not necessarily the same thing. I do believe though that a lot of our problems are the basic acceptance of our position. We should be aiming very high and have the balls to say it. If you reach for the stars, you will fall short, but nearly reaching the stars is much better than nearly reaching the play offs. Think big, aim big and see where it takes you. We are only limited by our thoughts and dreams. We are way too guilty of being too scared to think big.
  11. Worthy of a contract for next season, unless by some crazy run of luck we get promoted.

    Not a fan of DS but we were better today. Hopefully that will act as a springboard for the rest of the season. In my view he needs a big run for the rest of the season to justify keeping his job. Hopefully that will start by stuffing Derby at B6 next week

    Glenn Whelan

    He has always done a solid job for us. He is also a solid pro. Never understood the hate. People need to get off his back. There is always at least half a team worse than him. I went to school with Graham Turners son. I can remember a time when he was so upset at school following the abuse that he, his brothers, sister and mum had had to put up with at one match. Some low life spat at his mum. He hated Villa from that day forward and I never blamed him. Some people need to grow up. Moronic

    I don’t think he’ll be here by Easter

    Thing is, it doesn’t have to be one or the other. We can playDavis to enable a more direct approach whilst still slowing adapting the play and incorporating a high press. Total revolution is always going to require more staff turnover than evolution. Evolution is required until we can address the players. A good manager would recognise this and adapt.
