    New Manager Speculation

    I did wonder if that was the case, No harm no foul as they say in your part of the World.

    It says against your post the following: Now I'm not normally one for being pedantic, but 07/08/2018 was 8 days ago, not over two months.

    Pedant alert! The majority of people voted for Clinton. She won the popular vote by over 3,000,000. She did however lose the Electoral College.

    I'm interested by Avenatti. It has been refreshing to see someone (anyone) stand up to the Republican bully boy style and then give it back to them ten times over. The Democrats do seem to be fearful of fighting back as a party, the lack of backbone there has been one of the most disheartening things about the last 2 years. So yes Avenatti has been great to watch come out swinging and not just blindly, but from a position of knowledge and with the facts backing him up which helps give him strength. He even has a very progressive list of policies, which I posted on his tweet here which is also refreshing. My problem with him is that whilst his light is burning brightly at the moment I have no idea if this is sustainable for him, if these are new positions or life long held beliefs, I just don't know enough about him now to get fully behind him, especially when there are a couple of life long progressives with massive experience and name recognition who could do as well if not better than Avenatti. (yes I'm talking about Bernie). High profile and exciting is not the same as a good candidate. I also love that he has been calling out the main right wing mouth pieces and not a single one of them will get in a room with him. Fox are running scared and it is wonderful to watch as they all know he will come on prepared to call them out on their hypocrisies, he will be able to quote them, he will be able to say when they said what they said and he will pick them to pieces. Whilst I'm not sure Avenatti is the man to run for President I would pay good money to see him debate Trump. I'd prefer to see him put Trump on trial though.

    Not good enough, I'd prefer a cross between Van Nistleroy/Henry/Drogba/De Bruyne

    Micah Richards

    Could we hire them as "Consultants" into one of our owners companies in exchange for quitting Villa on favorable terms? They earn the same amount , but the club don't have the liability anymore....? I have no idea, I'm a tech guy not a contract lawyer and ffp is one of those issues I just can't get interested in the minutia of.

    Match Thread: Villa v Wigan

    could fix this now. Move Axel in to CB, Elmo to RB and Jedi into DM, Barnie and Green can have the wings.

    The next two hours is basically a feature length advert for the betting industry.

    Bryan going to Fulham is akin to turning down the Beatles just before they released Love me do to Join the Contours because they had just released Do you love me now.

    I'm a big fan of an early release. So much so that sometimes I do it even when I don't mean to.

    There is a theory out there that Manafort hasn't even been offered a deal. The idea being that Mueller has enough flipped people for the rest of his work and thinks that Manafort is such a career crook that he wants to send him down for life more than he wants his testimony.

    So we do know that Andy King has been told to find a new club and a bloke that has done 10 years in the midlands is unlikely to want to go too far. It does begin to add up. He also has more Prem League titles to his name that Gerrard so he must be good.

    I'm pretty sure that is a reference to us spending the Grealish money.....

    At least they are actually tweeting Villa news. I get really fed up with them tweeting who Chelsea or Man U are looking to buy.
