  1. 17/18 Promotion Charge

    Really deflated. You just have to keep getting results, especially at home. 7 points in 9 games is too much of a gap unless Cardiff fall in a hole, and they just keep getting results. Hopefully the experience of our squad makes the difference in the playoffs.
  2. 17/18 Promotion Charge

    Cardiff just keep getting results. It's frustrating. It's getting really tough now. 4 points isn't much to make up but it looks more and more every time they win. If they don't have a bad run of games, we're probably looking at a cutthroat promotion playoff against Fulham. It's getting pretty tense.
  3. 17/18 Promotion Charge

    Just coming behind twice to win well away from home proves a lot of the mental strength of this team. If we can get Grealish and Adomah fit and playing every game, we'll achieve automatic promotion, i'm sure of it.
  4. Winter Olympics PyeongChang 2018

    I'm honestly conflicted as to whether they should even display silver and bronze on the medal tally
  5. Ratings & Reactions: Villa v sha

    What a perfect game! We not only destroyed them but we genuinely looked a class above all day. This is a team that believes it's too good for the Championship and the results are following.
  6. Football Kits 2017/8

    That makes sense, thanks for the explanation!
  7. Football Kits 2017/8

    I'm fascinated by this stuff. When you say something is impossible to make, can you give me an example?
  8. 17/18 Promotion Charge

    We've been burned so badly by this club over the past half a decade, but I think belief is finally starting to overcome doubt for me. We've got a great squad of players I genuinely like for the first time since the MON era. We're getting results. UTV.
  9. Villa and FFP

    I absolutely agree that clubs shouldn't be saddled with unservicable debt. We don't want clubs flying too close to the sun trying to get promotions or European places and then being at risk of being wound up if they don't get there. I'm all for FFP that stops clubs getting into bad debt. But if an owner wants to inject money into his or her football club, it's moronic that they're not allowed to. It makes it incredibly difficult for a large club to ever really make that step up to giant club status, regardless how deep their owner's pockets are. Chelsea and Man City get in before the glass ceiling and reap all those benefits but other clubs aren't allowed to because of Portsmouth? It's bullshit.
  10. The Next Club Crest/Badge

    I don't like the idea of a star appearing separate and above the crest, unless we're playing in Europe. Then the star represents something. Wearing it when we're playing away at Barnsley in the 2nd tier of English football is a bit meaningless IMO. I think the recent changes to the badge have been a huge success. The badge when embroidered is absolutely beautiful. I'm definitely open to change but i'm not desparate for one. If we were going to make a change, i'd much prefer a modern interpretation of the 1957 badge than something round. I feel like a round badge is quite generic really. I'd much rather have something where the shape immediately screamed Aston Villa.
  11. Leeds Utd new badge

    This badge would just be a bit shit if whoever designed it was banned from learning anything about Leeds United bar the name and colours. The fact that it's been designed like this given the history is utterly ridiculous.
  12. 17/18 Promotion Charge

    I think we'd have been far better off just going down in 2011/12 under McLeish. That shock might have forced some genuine change when we were still a half decent football club. Instead we slowly got worse and worse as Lerner got away with running the club into the ground off the back of Christian Benteke and a strong dose of luck until the bottom finally fell out and we went down with 17 points and a -50 GD. It's been a much bigger job to rebuild such a broken club.
  13. Paul Lambert

    There were definitely issues beyond his control but ffs we just never looked like scoring at all. There would have been shorter odds in most games for the opposition to score 3 or 4 than for us to score 1. God what a depressing time that was to be a Villa fan.
  14. The Video Assistant Referee (VAR)

    I'm fine with it, but i'd only use it to overturn really obvious errors with penalties and red cards. If there is a little bit of contact and someone goes down and a penalty is waved away, I don't want that sort of thing being overturned, just the absolute howlers, or dives. The nature of what constitutes a foul in football is a lot less clear cut than decisions video refs are making in Cricket or in the NFL. Unless it's a clearcut unquestionable error, leave it to the ref on the field.
  15. Dishwasher debate: Load knives and forks up or down

    The knives you use for eating food, not for preparing food. Unless you're preparing food wrong I guess.
