  1. At least we're not playing Man City at Wembley live on TV next. That'd be embarrassing.
  2. THINGS THAT ARE MORE FUN THAN WATCHING VILLA... I'll start - having such bad diarrhoea you have to sit on the toilet until you get pins and needles in your legs. Next!
  3. We were, but we were good as a team BECAUSE of Jack. We looked nothing like getting promoted until he was fit.
  4. Jack Grealish was for Dean Smith getting Villa promoted what John Terry was for Di Matteo winning Chelsea the Champions League. Discuss...
  5. I **** love VillaTalk, and I love each and every person that has posted in here. To share strength, vulnerability, advice, consolation - it's amazing. I can understand the feeling of having "no friends". I've used inverted commas because I believe the definition of friends has changed. Relationships and social interaction have changed. I've lived in so many cities and countries that it's been hard to have long-lasting friendships in the traditional manner - Sundays down the pub watching football, hanging out, popping round for a brew. But I know I have a network of people that care about me. And a real core of that is right here. I've had ups and downs with mental health, and some real dark downs lately. I've not posted about it in this thread recently, but it's been a comfort to know I could. @kurtsimonw @Jimzk5 @Stevo985 @KentVillan and many others - to come in here and talk so openly about perceived weakness takes a huge amount of courage. Even if we're virtual strangers, we're all virtual community. Virtual family. I feel a deep level of care and kinship for so many people on VT, and particularly in this thread. For me, that makes us friends.
  6. Any evidence that this will make him particularly more or less equipped for the role? If not I couldn't give a shit, ta.
  7. This is completely fine...
  8. Leadsom has been potted too. Seems like a couple of good decisions in her and McVey, but lets see what filth he can scrape up to replace them with.
  9. That's a fair shout. It's a fine line between developing into Riyadh Mahrez and being Jonathan Kodjia.
  10. He was trying to do way too much last night. A gifted player, incredible, but everything was Hollywood and he was conceding possession too often.
  11. Full, unequivocal proof that the game has gone and just by how much too. This is an incredible read... https://www.independent.co.uk/sport/football/premier-league/champions-league-superclubs-liverpool-man-utd-barcelona-real-madrid-a9330431.html Click the link to get the rest of what is essential reading.
  12. There's gotta be more to it than meets the eye. Not necessarily... To quote his wife - And the man himself - https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/deportation-uk-jamaica-charter-flight-home-office-detention-reshawn-davis-a9324496.html Smacks of just wanting to get people deported so they can deliver on being "tough on crime". I haven't found out the details of his crime, but whatever it is, it's hard to make a case for him to be deported. To all intents and purposes, he's entitled to live here.

  14. Binged my way through Evil Genius on Netflix yesterday. Only a 4-parter but it was totally gripping. Like the Hernandez one it leaves more questions than it answers, but it was a case I'd never heard about so it was all new to me. Marjorie Diehl-Anderson, a brainiac in the 70s and quite fit too, ended up in with a crowd of fellow oddballs with mental health and addiction issues in the 2000s. Suddenly there are a couple of dead bodies, including one pizza delivery guy who robbed a bank and was caught immediately after by police with a bomb still strapped to his neck and claiming that he'd been forced into it by some black men, and the oddballs are all pointing the finger at each other. Definitely one of those that you couldn't make up.
  15. He'll look like Joleon Lescott in about 3 weeks time.
  16. Be interesting to see how this one plays out... The Jewish Labour Movement and the Board of Deputies of British Jews have condemned it, and the Campaign Against Antisemitism have called upon the Conservative Party to distance themselves from his views. Overarching opinion seems to be that the Tories should suspend the whip. DK has clearly been a whopper for some time now, desperate to be noticed with his proclamations of calling favours from the Polish government (that didn't materialise), but I do wonder if he's perhaps motivated by something more sinister than mere publicity. As a footnote, I'm always flabbergasted at how anyone Polish can want to align themselves with the far right - be that MPs or football hooligans - given the history there.
  17. If he was making diesel motorbikes, it's no wonder it's all gone tits.
