  1. Unless Wallet gate was after, I'm out of the loop these days, sorry

    Ice rink

    Looks like Captain Picard? ^^^^ I know this one breaks the rules
  3. Most of the time I like to be humble but **** Man U, **** Mike Dean, **** Bruno Fernandez We are going to win the league.
  4. https://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/news/jimmy-greaves-how-helped-aston-4562503
  5. I'd start - Martinez Cash--Tuanzebe--Hause--Young Traore--Buendia--Nakamba--El Ghazi Watkins--Ings Give Watkins and Ings further chance to work on their partnership, whilst also giving Watkins some more minutes. Give Tuanzebe some more minutes as he's illegible for the Man U game anyway, Keep Martinez in goal, start Buendia and also give a start to those normally on the bench, especially El Ghazi, who I feel deserves a start after his recent contributions. Then, depending on how the game's going, possibly bring on Archer, JPB and, if possible, give Bailey around 20 minutes? Although chances are that may too much of a risk, and resting him for Man U may be the best option? May be a little light in the middle of the park but maybe have Luiz/Ramsey (give McGinn a rest) on the bench ready to come on if we're being overran. Win 2-0 (one each for Watkins and Ings)
  6. Depending on if Sanson and/or Chippy are available or not, even though it may be unlikely we'll play a diamond 442 - Steer Guilbert---------Hause---------Tuanzebe---------Targett Nakamba AR--------------------------JJ Carney Wesley---------Caleb Brother connection X2 With JPB and Iroegbunam hopefully getting some minutes off the bench. Win 4-0
  7. Are there any free agents about that could be worth a go?
  8. I thought there was something about the 'fingers in ears' being a comforting message to his sister? Like an 'I'm not letting what's said upset me/not listening don't worry' type thing? Although yes, I wouldn't be surprised, due to the attention him doing it has received, that there may be a marketing idea to make it his signature celebration. I was away working when it was all going on, so I missed out on all the fun on here, but I love him, I'll always love him, I'll miss him playing for us and I wish him well. He is the best player I've ever seen play for Villa, but no player is bigger than the club anyway, now I have Jamaica's greatest player to watch as a replacement ....when he's fit anyway (similarities) A player so good my Dad has postponed 'retiring' to Jamaica, just to watch him play, so there you go, what a compliment plenty of good times ahead.
  9. Here's a list, the first four are great but that last one is a bit dark -
  10. One thing about Jack Grealish - he has an... ... energetic white wolf looking friend.
  11. Now there's someone who should've been England manager.
  12. I would describe the three positions we need the most as 1 Midfield Steel 2 Effective Wide player 3 Target man/goalscorer
  13. Martinez Elmo---Konsa---Mings---Targett McGinn---Nakamba---Luiz Watkins---Davis---Ramsey I think Watkins, Davis and Ramsey could play off each other quite nicely, whilst still tracking back and putting a lot of pressure on Albion. I'm optimistic whoever we start anyway, I'll say 2-0 Villa.
  14. On topic, I think we need an experienced striker for Watkins to learn from for a few seasons. However, that's quite a difficult position to fill, to bring someone in with the understanding they are there to help someone learn how to undoubtedly become the first choice. Also, In my opinion, Watkins also doesn't currently have any real competition for his place, I do like Davis, but Watkins is clearly more effective, especially under Smith's way of playing. I don't know, bringing in a striker who could come off the bench for the last half an hour and offer a bit of experience and something a bit different to Watkins, is something I feel we could really do with? Just looking at a few free agent strikers - Diego Costa? (attitude? Wages?), Sturridge (Fitness? Effectiveness?). Pato (Wages? Fitness? Could possibly have something to prove similar to Martinez?) or Wilfried Bony (Fitness? Effectiveness? Another one with something to prove?)
