    I'm not, because I think we lack genuine, scary pace in every single position on the field. I think it's arguably our biggest weakness.

    ^^^ That's tongue in cheek. I appreciate you taking the time to fully explain why you have the viewpoint you do. I do, however, think we as a fanbase are so used to fearing the worst - things won't get better they'll only deteriorate - because that's what we've been so used to in the last 10 or so years. Probably longer. Under MON we thought we'd get 4th, but it ultimately failed (and style of football was mooted as a reason then too). Then we just kept getting worse and worse until the 10th game of last season when it wouldn't have been unreasonable to think we were going down again. I agree with your point that we should/could have been developing a playing style down here. But then to a certain extent we don't know the psychological damage inside VP and Bodymoor. Look at the psychological damage to the fanbase - we draw a game and it's the end of the world. Everything will come falling down again. A good example of this being your line "...and now we are really in trouble". Are we? Are we really? Or are we just so used to failing, so conditioned that "winter is coming", so familiar with and comforted by drama, that this is how it feels when we draw 0-0 and still sit in the play-off places? Could we be doing better? Yes. But we're still on track for AT LEAST the play offs, and then we're only a couple of games away from Wembley and our rightful place of 15th in the Premier League.

    And I don't disagree. I do worry that we may not have enough nous to beat the higher placed/performing teams. That said, we're largely beating whatever is put in front of us at the moment. And at the very least we're hardly ever losing. Playing stylish football is great, but it's also no guarantee of beating everyone. Wolves have been playing the best football in the division, with the best players, and are rightfully top. They scraped past 10-man Small Heath the other night, and then drew 0-0 at home to a Sunderland side who haven't won a match since 1912. I'd like to see more, I'd like to think the players are capable of more, but as things stand we're still making progress. At least now we're angry about drawing home matches instead of being angry about getting slapped like we have been for the last few years. Onwards and up the Villa.

    With this squad we'd get slaughtered most weeks regardless who's in charge. If/when we get promoted, we need to hope Dr Tony has kept that £500m bank account he opened when he bought the club.
  7. Players that you think are rubbish

    Cuco Martina. Such a bad defender that when he dies even his grave will be unmarked.
  8. Steve Bruce

    I'm not arsed with all this talk of "top 2 or it's not good enough". We just need to get promoted. I don't care if that's automatically, through the play offs, or via the Postcode Lottery.
  9. Snow Watch!

    Hasn't even made it as far as Stockport this side of the hills. Massive stitch up.
  10. What you eatin' there then?

    Tesco with Courvoisier. Six for £2. Don't bother looking anywhere else.

    Hopefully this one will agree to marry you Might be a bit weird if you've already "shared" on a first date though.
  12. Wolves

    0-0 at home to 10-man Sunderland today. Expect Wolvestalk is full of chatter calling for Nuno's head.

    It's been the same at Villa Park for years. Teams that come and set up as a compact unit with a view to hitting us on the break have always had some level of joy at VP. Millwall had a lot of pace, and this is the slowest Villa team I can remember, so we found ourselves fortunate to get a point in a game that, on paper, we should have won.
  14. Ratings & Reactions: Villa v Millwall

    Is he quick, or another Grealish? Either way, from what I've seen he offers something different than what we're currently putting out.
