    Happy tonight It's weeks like this that make you think we've really got a chance
  2. Ratings & Reactions: Villa v Barnsley

    Job well done. Decent ref for a change. Putting Grealish on Cavare was a bit of a miss match for their goal but he let him go, other than that he ran the show. Bjarnason did ok. Hogan did well. Happy Days.
  3. Match Thread: Villa v Barnsley

    Well done McKirdy sounds like a hell of a game at Elland Road, well done Millwall

  6. Match Thread: Villa v Barnsley

    Leeds have pulled it back to 2-2 already at Elland Road - In other news talksport reckon Rondon is in tears on the pitch against Everton - McCarthy has suffered a nasty injury apparently
  7. Match Thread: Villa v Barnsley

    What a half. Leeds 2 down at home to Millwall and down to 10 men. Wolves 2 down at home to Forest. Keep it going Villa. Could end up a really good day.

    Good news. Proven a lot of us wrong after last year and progressing nicely. All going well for both clubs and him at this moment in time.
  14. Jack Grealish

    If I'm honest I've probably been more nasty to Jack than anyone in my short time at VT - things were said in anger! - but it's great to see him firing on all cylinders. Lets hope he stays injury free and continues in this vein. He's been a joy to watch this season so far.
  15. Josh Onomah

    Of the loans we have here atm he's the only one that hasn't really nailed down a place in the starting XI. I think with Grealish, Lansbury and Jedinak all injured going into the start of the season it's been a good loan so far. He has had moments where he has looked the part. He has had some where he just doesn't look quite with it. How much of his development is being hampered by his versatility? How much is down to young players finding consistency? Either way he'd be useful to have around for the run in, not least if Grealish or Hourihane pick up an injury, but also it would be a shame to lose someone at this point who has regularly contributed to where we are. From Spurs' perspective though if he isn't getting guaranteed game time they've every right to recall him if they wish. He'd walk straight into most teams lineups in this division.

    we've had a bad run of it over the last few years @TRO. We need to find a ruthless streak. My point is we should have more confidence in the boys. They've proven they are up for the fight. I'm not suggesting arrogance in expecting the wins. You and I in particular have banged on in the past about earning what we get enough! But just because we fell apart last year and have had the stuffing knocked out of us basically since Milner left doesn't mean we shouldn't have a bit of swagger about us. The margins are SO fine. But we aren't 4th by mistake.
  17. Steve Bruce

    Fine, as ever everyone is entitled to their own opinions, but not their own facts. The only player I miss is Baker fwiw.
  18. 17/18 Promotion Charge

    Cardiff and Derby deserved to beat us as did Wolves. We can cling on to the hope of a better showing when they all visit Villa Park in the second half of the season. The Cardiff and Derby games in particular look huge. The Wednesday defeat was a bad night out - they scored a worldy after a few seconds and Terry and Snodgrass went off injured. I totally missed the Reading game to be fair so unfair of me to comment. Brentford probably deserved to do the double over us in fairness to them. As for the other teams near the top - We've taken 4 points off Bristol City and Middlesbrough this season. We beat Fulham at home and Preston away. drew with Leeds away and Sheff Utd at home (courtesy of that Jedinak howler). We've shown we can compete with them. But there's 7/8/9 games there of the 19 to come that may prove tricky. Sheff Utd [a] (Jan), Fulham [a], Preston, Sheff Weds [a] (Feb), Wolves (Mar), Reading, Cardiff, Leeds, Derby, (Apr) Of the other 10 we need to do the double over Barnsley, Norwich, QPR, Ipswich, Sunderland, Burton, Bolton and turn the draws against Millwall, Hull and SHA into wins. Point made the other night was if we want to be in the race for second we'll need at least another 11/12 wins from somewhere and can probably only afford another 2/3 losses. Too many slip ups and we'll be left fighting it out for a play off place. A win tomorrow would be a great start.
  19. Fans Consultancy Group Meeting

    Can we ask the club to sort out Dem's auto correct or is that a bit off remit
  20. Steve Bruce

    First team players sold under Bruce who played under Bruce - Gollini, Westwood, Ayew, McCormack, Gestede, Amavi, Baker - not to mention squad players like Gardner, Bacuna, Tshibola and Cissokho. Veretout, Sanchez and Gil i'll give you though
