    Albums of the Year 2018

    @Rugeley Villa 2nd from me. Sleep - The Sciences in particular are right up your Sabbath street. 1 track is even called Giza Butler. Should have been in my honourable mentions as well but forgot..!

    Albums of the Year 2018

    Heard of Bob Dylan and Neil Young but otherwise totally baffled! I’m not under 30 though; think it’s more of there is a ridiculous amount of music out there to cater for everyone’s taste. That is the beauty of music, no 2 people have identical tastes in music! One that I did forget was the Oh Sees - Smote Reverser. Never heard of them before and them somebody (really sorry can’t remember who but thank you!) posted the album cover which is awesome. Really good album and I have villatalk to thank for it!

    Albums of the Year 2018

    Top 5 in no particular order - Ghost - Prequelle Zeal & Ardor - Stranger Fruits Clutch - Book of Bad Decisions Møl - Jord Anaal Nathrakh - A New Kind of Horror Well, I say no order but the first 3 have been the stand out albums of the year IMO. Ghost have just gone to the next level with their album, and expect them to take that step up. Zeal & Ardor is something quite spectacular and beautiful. Clutch have added to their mass of quality songs, even throwing in a song that is a recipe for crab cakes?!? Møl was an excellent addition to the Blackgaze genre and completely outshone Ghost Bath when saw them live last month. Anaal Nathrakh was a very solid return to form as well, with the WWI theme working very well. Special mentions I think should go to Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats - Wasteland, Judas Priest - Firepower, Ihsahn - Amr, Primordial - Exile Amongst the Ruins, Behemoth - I Loved You at your Darkest, Conjurer - Mire and Cancer Bats - The Spark That Moves. All good albums.
  4. I’ve voted Greens last few election as they are the closest to my views; however I’m realistic that they will never get in as erdington is as labour safe as ever. Just feel so utterly apathetic with all the “traditional” parties.
  5. Link to the "full" legal advice 5 1/2 pages of stuff that does not require a QC to tell everyone what's wrong with the deal. Apart from it confirming what everyone is saying, why were they so intent on keeping this secret? Country's in the hands of idiots.

    Villa and FFP

    Isn't there an increase in relation to how much deficit you are allowed if it is backed by capital? Thought it would counteract the spending as it is money from within the club rather than loans, which was one of the reasons why FFP came into existence, to stop clubs from borrowing their way to the top (see Leeds).

    Villa and FFP

    Anyone else noticed that over the past 4/5 months or so there has been an extra £52 million in capital put into the club? Now I am pretty sure that's one way to deal with the issues of FFP and ensuring there is money for the January transfer window...
  9. If we hadn't got Bolasie, Adomah and Kodjia in the wing positions with the possibility of Green to return I would say he deserves to come home! If there was a come get me plea that happened on Wednesday! Otherwise GK/LB/CB and we should be set Heaton (if there is any truth in the rumours) would be perfect - sign him up 1st Jan please!

    Pre match thread

    Elmo doesn't terrify me, still a decent player. Taylor though...
  11. Very interesting article. What I would say in relation to the decision next Tuesday, if it requires the agreement of Europe to revocation of Art. 50; then I do not foresee an opposition from Europe to revoke this. They have been pretty clear that the best outcome for them is for us to remain and so anything that pushes us in that direction will not face any opposition from Europe. I just hope the MPs have the guts to stand up for what they believe is best instead of falling for the "Hobson Choice"* approach that May has proposed to us. *not my analogy, but think it is rather apt.
  12. Definitely! I would guess approximately 650 of them?
  13. The only reason that Gove has not resigned is that he thinks it in best political interests not to resign. He has no interest in what’s best for the country whatsoever.

    U.S. Politics

    I see the Democrats have taken the Arizona Senate seat. 47-51 with 2 seats to determine. Mississippi going to a run off later this month, describing Florida a right mess is a complete understatement!

    U.S. Politics

    To be fair the queen does bugger all (except take a lot of money). House of Lords whilst is utterly incompetent and useless - at least they can get overruled by the Commons.
