  1. Villa and FFP

    Technically Neymar was also a free transfer, he bought himself out of his contract with Barcelona (albeit with Qatari cash).
  2. John Terry

    Think you’re right, Terry is great with his feet and our whole build up has suffered for it. Johnstones distribution was awful but that was mainly because he had to resort to punting forward for Davis.
  3. Trains

    Just a note for those of us travelling by train tomorrow, especially from the west country. Crosscountry trains have strike action tomorrow so there’s a really disrupted service beyond Bristol.
  4. January transfer window 2018

    Stan Petrov was the first I have a feeling.
  5. James Chester

    What a player he has been for us over the last two seasons. Such a classy centre half.
  6. 17/18 Promotion Charge

    I tend to agree. We really were a shambles. I never really bought into the losing culture thing that Bruce talked about, but it is true. I just get the impression that a loss to the current side would hurt them. Sheff Weds match case in point - we bounced back strongly.
  7. 17/18 Promotion Charge

    Do you think we are a better side now than we were 3 years ago? Genuine question, I've been thinking about this for a week or two now.
  8. Tony Xia

    I kind of like that he is obviously still very ambitious, but not saying stuff like we will be the worlds best again. The stadium plans sound interesting, seems like they are planning a complete rebuild.
  9. Steve Bruce

    Earlier in the season after the Boro game I thought there was no way back for Bruce. He's done really well for us since then. Credit where it is due.
  10. Ratings & Reactions: Villa v Ipswich

    Thought we were good today, Ipswich obviously weren't at their best. Albert was like a show pony out there today, tricks and flicks galore. I urge everyone to watch the extended highlights and check out the clip over the wingers head whilst he was covering at left back in the first half. The most audacious thing I've seen a villa player do in quite a while.
  11. Keinan Davis

    Thought he did good today, he really is the new Heskey (good way), but he will never get 20 a season because of this.
  12. Tony Xia

    Tony was loving his lap of the ground before the match today. He gets it.
  13. Tony Xia

    No touching of the hair or face.
  14. Steve Bruce

    Bruce doesn't win pretty, and definitely not convincingly and probably never will. That said our form is really good in terms of results. Long may this continue.
  15. 17/18 Promotion Charge

    I sometimes feel this. I always have a nervous feeling that we are riding a wave of good form that will crash down at any moment. But as time goes by and we continue to win more games than not, I am starting to believe that for the first time in years we are organised and half-decent.
