  1. Gabby Agbonlahor

    Every frustration with him over the last few seasons completely melted away in that moment. Pure unadulterated bliss. Still can't wipe the smile off my face. He came on, fired the feeling in the match up to derby standards and then scored the winner. Legend.
  2. Match Thread: Villa v SHA

    Everything i've felt about his football over the past few years just melted away in a blaze of elation. I **** love you Gabby! Villa legend!
  3. Bomb attack on Dortmund team bus

    Glad there haven't been any fatalities reported but it's absolutely terrifying that this is hitting football. Really heartwarming to see the reaction of the supporters.
  4. The VT Baby club

    Good luck to you too. I'm a few years into my career as a Police officer and I have a partner who shares my parenting philosophies almost exactly, and with various maternity and long service leave arrangements she can take up to 70 weeks off at half pay, so we'll have no issues at all. All going well at the moment although the missus is feeling unwell, hopefully only a few more weeks of that at most.
  5. The VT Baby club

    Heeey mine too! Just under 9 weeks. Mine will be half Australian and quarter Ukranian and quarter English though. I've been waiting a long time to join in on this thread I've never been in a better place in my life either. So ready
  6. WWE: General Chat

    I don't actually mind the Undertaker losing to Reigns if he wanted to retire, it's the right way to go out, but god they need to completely change up Reigns' character. It's insane that he's been this unpopular for this long and they're still pushing the same thing.
  7. Neil Taylor

    Agree. Very few players want to actively snap the opposition player's leg, but in every sport that involves contact, players will quite often go hard at a player to "make him earn it". Taylor put making him earn it ahead of the safety of his fellow professional with a disastrous result. Taylor will live with the reputation of that for the rest of his career most likely.
  8. Neil Taylor

    Of course he was trying to win the ball, but he showed that he's willing to perform incredibly dangerous acts that risk devastating injury to opposition players in order to do so. As a footballer you have a duty of care to everyone else on the pitch and Taylor threw that out the window. He'll have to live with that for the rest of his career and the reputation that will come with it
  9. Pokémon GO

    Just evolved my magicarp thanks to the water pokemon special and i'm now at the same point! Pretty satisfying. My only regret is spending a week in Hawaii several months back and not getting a Tauros. I have a little one on the way so probably no other overseas travel for me anytime soon. I do have an excess of Kangaskhans. Hopefully they introduce trading for the locality based pokemon

    According to an update today you will now get an upgrade item on a 7th day pokestop.
  11. Steve Bruce

    Game by game, nobody is arguing that we should be satisfied with performances. Shit, toothless losses against bad sides where we play shit football is really frustrating and it should be frustrating to everyone who has a vested interest in the club. HOWEVER, I'm able to separate that post loss frustration from my feelings about where the club is going long term. Losing is NEVER okay, but i'm realistic enough to know that we'll lose some games and that will frustrate me, but under Xia we'll continue to improve as time goes on. Someone else posted last page that Man City finished 10th the first season after their takeover and going hard at the transfer market. They probably lost a lot of frustrating games that year as well. It takes time and effort to go from a place where winning every week isn't expect to one of the top clubs in Europe. Similarly with us, we went into half the games last season expecting to lose by multiple goals, and that negativity and lack of belief filtered right throughout the club. It doesn't disappear in one offseason. I'll be as pissed off about a shit performance as anybody, but I don't think the answer to shit performances at this stage is to throw the baby out with the bathwater and sack the coach and start again.
  12. Pokémon GO

    I got a Sunstone today and upgraded a Sunkern. Are you guys still getting nothing in terms of special items? I also finally got a Weezing, so I've moved Magicarp to buddy and I need to walk about 60km until I have all the Australian available Pokemon from gen 1

    That's a doll right?
  14. Steve Bruce

    If we sacked Bruce now we'd be looking for our 6th permanent manager in just over 2 years. At what point do we stop and realise that the performances and inconsistency aren't all down to the manager? We'll avoid relegation at this point barring disaster, so let's just let the dust settle on what has been an incredibly tumultuous couple of years for our football club and see if we start heading in the right direction.

    I know it's not a perfect example, but Ranieri didn't get Leicester into the PL. They toiled away for a bit under Pearson and built themselves up before getting the right manager in place. Unless Dr Tony is going to spend Chelsea or Man City money (and he can't with FFP), we're going to need to build slowly and sustainably. We've turned over the staff and we've made good signings, and we've grabbed a decent manager who has gotten teams out of the Championship before. It's all about a culture change now. Our culture took half a decade to break down under Lerner and it might take half a decade to be repaired. A bit of stability will help that enormously.
