  1. General Chat

    Just wanted to say a massive heartfelt thanks to everyone at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital. My mate underwent a 6 hour brain operation on an embolism about 10 days ago and I was chatting with him last night bloomin' amazing work people.
  2. Ratings & Reactions: Villa v Derby

    First up 3 points - so YAY But I genuinely thought we managed to drag them down to our level today. They played some nice stuff I thought. Still Bruce needed a win and he got one. Onwards and upwards now please
  3. Leandro Bacuna

    I've never rated him, I thought he did ok today and was going to come here and post one of those 'fair play to the lad even though I knock him' type posts........then that! And by ok I mean he still gave the ball away after doing a good thing here and there and he done a good clearance tracking back. But that doesn't constitute a 'good' performance to me. he did ok. Then hilariously made that whole situation more complicated than it needed to be by taking it off to the byline in the first place.

  9. Relegation thread 2016/17

    I mean I was gonna go back find the page with the original quote and bemoan the loss of the multiquote system when I realised it's the same page and the quote I was replying to is right there. Quite clearly it says we need a 'settled transfer window where we are not buying and selling half the squad'. I suggest nearly half the squad should leave. I think Amavi will be off in the summer but I left him off that list. If I had my way and at the back Jonstone, Bunn Hutton, Richards and Cissokho all leave and we lose Amavi, ideally we'd be bringing in a GK, LB, CB. 3 in 6 out, No point buying 'squad players' either. In midfield lets hope Hourihane finds his feet as Lansbury looks promising and hope Jedinak stays fit. Bjarnason adds depth and flexibility, Lyden covers Jedinak, leaving Tish, GG, Veretout and Sanchez battling it out for 1 squad place. So 3 of the last 4 can go imo. (Even then at this present moment in time there's a lack of quality there, certainly off the bench). 3 out (at least, but after that it's replacing not trimming) Gil and Grealish, all the skillz, both lightweight. Gil will be off imo. I thought I'd be nice to Grealish and make a pretend position for him so he gets a free pass. Not that we will/should sell him or owt. but 1 out. My absolute biggest gripe is the lack of width but I want to dream of a time where Bacuna gets to play at being a footballer somewhere else so Adomah needs competition. Green might just be an answer down the left, Grealish doesn't fit the bill here for me, I thought Bjarnason but obviously not, so Green too needs competition. In the summer I'd like us to focus on a ML and MR. 1 out 2 in. Up top ideally all our new shiny £10m+ strikers coming good would be great, Gabby can go out on a high, McCormack sorts himself out, Hogan and Kodjia click and they all score 20 goals each on our way back to the PL.... and the nippers provide cover. But realistically maybe we should be looking at replacing McC and Gabby? Maybe loaning Davis and RHM out for the year would do them good? Hard to know right now, we'll know a lot more come May. I'd be amazed if Gabby left, however at this point McCormack leaving wouldn't surprise any of us. I'll count 1 out and wish for more My opinion hasn't changed all season. I thought we'd finish mid table, I still think we'll finish mid table. I, like everyone is, am looking over my shoulder at the relegation zone with dread. I hate the football we're seeing, but I'm not panicking and really bad runs aside I think we're about par for the course. The reason I kinda expected a season like this WAS the wholesale changes and the fact that it was too much to do in one season. In both of Xia's transfer windows so far the club has exceeded my expectations, so I've been happy overall. As you yourself allude to none of the departures I'm suggesting would really damage us. But that's 12 outs and 5 ins there which is an entirely different thing from the people earlier basically suggesting we just need to tinker. I purposely avoid using phrases like "cancer in the club" coz that's not where I'm coming from. But we are less than half way through this mission. Having a balanced squad, rid of the majority of the payer base that took us down after 3 windows with the majority of them having a full pre season together would be excellent work.
