  1. However Barkley perceives himself, I would argue he is a) no longer the player he was b) not a team player c) needs to grow up. His ‘look at me’ tactics when he was subbed spoke volumes and was disgraceful.
  2. I am really at a loss to understand why Barkley keeps playing. Either he is not fit, not interested, has it written that he must play at least 60 mins or thinks he is owed a living. When he went off SJM started to run the show. Keep playing Barkley and kiss goodbye to any lingering hope of a Euro place.
  3. Haven’t been on VT for a while but said exactly this to some friends during tonights game. Clearly the emphasis on an attacking midfield and breaking football has worked quite a few times this season but arguably we have been found out now. Over several games Barkley has been a passenger (I know he scored but that was it) who when involved invariably complicates things - I am not sure what he adds. Targett and Grealish have a good understanding, when Barkley gets involves he overplays and almost slows Grealish up.. For a guy who is known to be skillful on the ball, at times his short passing a
  4. Villa fans need to stop obsessing over what manure or others think of our players - we are no longer a feeder club. Over the next few seasons with the right investment and kids coming through we could easily be among the top 4-6 and challenging for more. The current ‘top 6’ (whoever they now are) do not have a divine right to be there.
  5. Huge praise for the lad in todays Times https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/carney-chukwuemeka-aston-villa-confident-their-rising-star-17-has-what-it-takes-to-be-next-big-england-thing-czz9mccxg Carney Chukwuemeka: Aston Villa confident their rising star, 17, has what it takes to be next big England thing Tom RoddyFebruary 01 2021, 12.01am Carney Chukwuemeka, 17, is widely considered to be not only one of the best players coming out of Birmingham but the entire country.

  6. As I said in my initial comment, the Doc was responsible for one of my best years as a Villa fan. Unless you were there it is hard to understand how utterly desperate it was in 1968. After playing 18 and winning just two on 9th November we faced Preston at home who hadn’t beaten us at VP for 48 years. I was on the Holte with my two brothers and it was desolate. I think the crowd was around 12,000 and there was zero atmosphere. We lost 0-1 which sent us to the bottom of the then division 2. Immediately after the game there was quite a large protest by fans as they invaded the Trinity
  7. Hope I have done this right. Very sad to say the Guardian is reporting the passing of former Villa Manager Tommy Docherty RIP Tommy you gave me one of the best years ever as a Villa fan “He’s up Mrs Brown.... “ https://www.theguardian.com/football/2020/dec/31/tommy-docherty-former-manchester-united-and-scotland-manager-dies-aged-92 PA Media Thu 31 Dec 2020 16.29 GMT
  8. small heath getting smaller by the day. (if that is possible) 0-3 in 25 minutes at home. Hopefully Derby can make it 0-6 or 0-8 would be even nicer.
  9. The club that I hate more than any other in the Premier League. If we could pull off a victory at Old Trafford it would be the sweetest of the season for me and help repair decades of humiliation.
  10. He didn’t mention specifics. Commentator said earlier he was ill
  11. Quite funny that Amazon could only find a female footballer who is a bluenose as a pundit for our game.
  12. In the reactions thread I said that Jack is the best Villa player I have seen during my 61 years watching the club and I stick by that despite my hero worship of Brian Little. However, unsurprisingly there are those that dispute this and credit Paul McGrath aka God as the best ever. Obviously it will not be possible to get a consensus but could Jack be the Son of God? After all like Jesus (and Brian Little) he walks on water and is working miracles at AVFC
  13. God was amazing and I know this will be considered blasphemous but imho Jack is even better.
  14. Incredible performance. Grealish is the best Villa player I have seen in my 61 years following the club. Hopefully some time this season we will get full credit rather than the constant claims that we won because our opponents were poor.
