  1. Absolutely nothing sad about that at all. I couldn’t get tickets to the Arsenal FA Cup final a few years ago as I didn’t have a season ticket because I live in London. Spent a few hours before the game with my mate soaking up the atmosphere and singing and drinking with Villa fans before the game. Was great. Then watched the game in one of the hotel bars inn Wembley with plenty of others. There’ll be lots of Villa in and around the bars etc of Wembley singing and soaking it up so if you’re tempted to get involved then do it.
  2. Agree with this, it was as if Mings was trying too hard to stay composed but with Gayle on your heels constantly from the off it seemed to jade Mings a bit. So his over composure was probably a result of trying to over compensate for the fact he actually wasn’t comfortable atall.
  3. Thought he was absolutely excellent for us today. With Mings having a bit of a wobble today, Axel led us out from the back like a leader. They’re a great pairing.
  4. Does anyone know when confirmation will be provided by the club for the kick off times for Saturday? And also the dates for the second leg? I am sure i saw it clarified a few weeks ago that 4th v 5th was 5.15pm on Saturday and then 7.45pm on the Wednesday but the club have stated this is all now "TBC".
  5. I agree he's a bit hit or miss for me. He has good games but he also has poor ones, too. He is often guilty of trying too much and will often do something fantastic but immediately follow it up by giving the ball away needlessly. But he has seemed to improve over the course of the season, and on his day he can be a real threat. We need him for the play offs, that's for sure and he's far better going forwards than Green or Adomah.

    Actually conceded only five.
  7. Iain Dowie has said that Tammy was shaking hands with tean mates on the pitch and smiling at the end. Hope this isn’t as bad as we all fear. Will be a very anxious wait until we find out.
  8. I was wondering about this. If he gets two yellows against Bolton does he just miss one game? Or as he will have picked up his 15th booking would the three game ban be upheld? Surely, there’s measures in place to stop teams being clever with deliberately getting yellows to offset the length of suspension. I’d play him as usual until he picks up another yellow then rest him for playoffs, assuming we make it.
  9. I hear what you’re saying but how often does he do this in a game? Rarely, if atall in most games. He has shown glimpses of quality but nowhere near enough to, in my opinion, be worthy of a start. He benefits from not having great competition for his place in Adomah.
  10. Bannan was criticised for not being up to Premier League standard which is far removed from Championship. At this level, and as shown on Saturday, Bannan can run the show from midfield and is very effective indeed. Green would, in my opinion, look much better in League 1.
  11. Sadly just don't rate Green. He doesn't seem capable at this standard for a team trying to get promoted. For me, his final ball is usually what let's him down (but he did great for McGinn's goal the other day) and he doesn't seem to have the confidence or ability to take a man on. We always look weak down our right with Green starting and he doesn't have any cohesion or understanding with Elmo that I think Albert has. (FWIW, I also think Albert is massively limited).
  12. This is a carbon copy of the goal he scored this season away at Blackburn in the 94th minute. He's got a wand of a left foot and so deadly from set pieces.
  13. Absolutely pathetic mindset form that Wednesday "fan". Its all just jealousy isn't it. Grealish is a top player and plays with a smile on his face and has the ability to glide past players with ease and, as he's shown recently, score some beauties. The consensus amongst the unintelligent is that he dives despite the fact he is the most fouled player in the league. Football fans are largely idiots and these sort of comments vindicate that. What worries me is if this absolutely moron can feel the need to assault Grealish at 0-0 when the ball merely goes for a corner then what may have happened if he scored in front of their fans at their end? Anyone saying things like "he asks for it", etc is an utter idiot and devoid of any intelligence or decency.
  14. Agree. I just don’t think you lose any quality by having McGinn in in place of Glenn.
