  1. Villa have had a fair few Mc's in their days. McParland and McGrath being legends but the likes of McEwan, McLeod, McMahon, McNaught & McCann weren't bad...it's time for another Big Mac!
  2. I would have thought that the old slow boat to China would be the best exit route for Lescott & Gabby
  3. Agreed . Defending against AVFC is very easy. Double team or Triple team their threats and Benteke and grealish were both eliminated as a factor that way. Nobody else raised their game enough to pick up the slack. Delphie and Cleverly tried but couldnt match the Arse defence & N'Zogbia had nothing to offer today. Grealish actually didn't play badly he just didn't get the same support from the other role players that he had versus Liverpool . Of course it didnt help that we played pool at their worst and Arsenal at their best. Yes , Arsenal are superior and I
  4. I would compare Lerner's promises to sell to Chamberlain's Pre WW2 "Peace in our time" statements - Optimistic to say the least. Todays lesson to be taken from Arsenal is relatively straight forward. If you have a club that continues to invest in quality players and has a solid business plan and management to accomplish that you will succeed. If you don't have a club that embraces those ideals you will look a lot like we do . One would hope that there may be some very real prospective purchasers about to step up and make a good offer to Randy Lerner for our beloved Aston Vil
  5. With more injuries and Sanchez getting a red card at Spuds, it will be interesting to see if Sherwood finds a spot for Gil next Sunday.
  6. From Ciggies & AVFC website : " The manager told me the way that he'd like me to play and it all sat perfectly for me. I'm very happy to be coming down to play for Villa." The awkward way that Cleverly describes the loan hints that he thinks it is a "come down" to be at B6 . Truth is that it is when you look at the way things have been for us over the last 4 years compared with Old Trafford. That said, we do present a golden opportunity for him to get his career back where he wants it to be and at the same time it may well be that our tide of mediocrity has turned.
  7. If Joe does get a kick you can bet that he'll be back on the injury bench for treatment!
  8. Yes from Blanco to Brown and several shades in between.
  9. Neither Oscar Arce or his brother actually played for Aston Villa when it was discovered that Oscar was possibly no better than a circus performer capable of dribbling and prodigiously controlling the ball like a hacky sack but in fact was an awful footballer . Over the years there has been an urban myth about Oscar Arce because at the time Aston Villa also had a good Welsh International player, Barry Hole on the team and the pub rumours always questioned what it would look like if Aston Villa signed Tony Brown from the Baggies and played them all in the Midfie

  11. I suspect he meant to say there's another game before his extension. Meaning he's one game shy of some clause in his contact and he's suddenly out of the team. I am just guessing of course but it sounds more logical that way. While the economics of running a club are important, if this is were the prime reason for not playing him it is a sad but necessary part of the business of football as it exists in the Premiership today. As long as money and economics is the primary focus at Aston Villa and the current regime I fear that we will need to lower our expectations as supporters
  12. I have for many years said that Villa Park must be cursed because someone in the distant past refused to buy the lucky heather or wooden clothes pegs to hang out the players gear on a Monday washing day to dry. Whatever the reason there is no doubt in my mind that what you say TRO is almost true. This club of ours hasn't had "some" funny periods, Truth is that we are always having a funny period. Once we get used to this foible of AVFC, it makes everything else so much easier to understand. We support an extremely eccentric club. A club that in one half of a game makes you thi

  14. Yow've nevver bin to Caldmore 'av yow! it's Toe Kneeeee Moooooooooon! not Toe Kneeeee Moo INN
  15. From the videos I have seen Kiyo reminds me of Modric and perhaps a little faster. We have been sadly lacking for set piece plays since Barry and Young left and there is no doubt that Kiyo has some talent there. The one thing I have liked about him though that stands out for me is the exuberance and joy that he shows in his play. However, at the moment he is still under contract with FCN and understandably they don't want him to leave. They allegedly put a valuation on him that would discourage a number of teams from pursuit. Rumours abound about Kiyos own wishes but regar
