    18/19 Race for Promotion

    A 10 point gap is really hard to close at the top end of the Championship as we have all seen. But a 4 point one not so much. I think we have a reasonable chance of hitting the playoffs and a very slim chance of top two. I can see one of Naaarwich or Leeds messing up and swapping places with Derby in the playoffs by end of season as well.

    Robbed but I will take an away point at one of the three strongest squads in the league.

    Pretty confident this is going to be a cracking game regardless of the result.

    I would take a 0-0 draw right now if you offered it. West Brom are lethal on the counter. Very quick, decisive and good at putting away chances. However I cant see anything beyond a goal fest for this game because Dean Smith doesnt "do" boring defensive performances Hopefully we end up with more goals but I am nervous. They have a very good squad.

    Gonna be a long thread.

    Ørjan Nyland

    Agree. I am proud of Villa fans for the way they have supported him through his illness but like you I didnt think he was particularly good for us as a player.

    Tammy Abraham

    Not sure we can afford him unfortunately. With or without the FFP nonsense. His value right now is sky high and he has earnt that. Good for him.

    Yeah to be fair the Stripeys really SHOULD be walking this league on paper. Then again as we discovered the hangover from relegation is a mental thing and hard to shake.

    The Petrov comparison is a good one.I recall him being called "The Crab". Used as an insult because he only ever moved sideways. For sure we should take a look in January but for the next few weeks we need to support Nyland . We have zero choice anyway.

    I used to drive by this on the way to work (assuming its the NASA Ames one off the 101 in the bay area.)

    Again. Derby are a top team in this league as well. Or were until as the commentator said "The Aston Villa show has come to Riverside" I do not like Pulis style football but I will grant its effectiveness, I am still not sure how Smith & the team just completely took them apart at home like that and I just rewatched the game! Happy days.

    Oh cool! Yeah I am North East Bay now so its a trek. I watch more games on TV these days. The new Earthquakes stadium is really nice though! MLS is fun.
