    Christian Purslow

    or does that mean Xia now doesn't own 55% of Aston Villa?

    Just hope Purslow, Edens and Sawiris are all watching this, and have Plan B ready and waiting...

    i thought our game plan was to win 0-0 by kicking the ball as far forward as they can

    18/19 Race for Promotion

    I've checked the table again and i'm definitely correct. adding 5 points takes us to 3rd. adding 6 points takes us into the top two (in first). and yes, last season we were incapable of closing a 6 point gap over 40 games!

    I meant we need 6 points to be second. This is because we have an inferior goal difference. You just took the difference between second and our current points total which is 5 points. But adding 5 points to our current points total would place us in third, not second. Doesn't really matter anyway - either way we need a good 7 wins in a row to get back on track. Which isn't going to happen.

    18/19 Race for Promotion

    We are already 6 points behind the promotion positions, and as we saw last year to close a 6 point gap takes around 8 wins in a row (as the top 2 also keep winning). Whats the probability of Bruce winning the next 8 games in row?

    We are basically hoping that our loan signings are so amazing that they counter the current rubbish and drag us into the promotion places by themselves.

    Things that piss you off that shouldn't

    The walkway between the free car park and the departure/arrival terminal at BHX is covered, so you are ok to walk it even in the rain. Yes, its about a 10-12 min walk, but is pretty easy to do even with wheeled luggage.
  9. No, because i believe (i may be wrong) that the demographic stays the same as time moves on - so the younger people who are voting Labour right now, will slowly switch to Tory as they get older.

    The Villa Finance Thread

    Though in reality, you wouldn't want someone in that sort of position to work their notice period, so they would just go on garden leave.

    5 points behind second already (6 points if including goal difference) after 6 games played. Whilst you can't win a league in August/September, you can definitely lose it. We saw last season how hard it is to catch the top in this league once you fall behind - it can take 6-7 wins in a row to catch a 6 point gap.

    Ratings & Reactions: Ipswich v Villa

    The evidence of 2 seasons and 4 games shows that we won’t get promoted under Bruce.

    yeah, i think we went way off on a tangent. I can't even remember the original point! I think i was just saying that CAMRA always state the number of pubs closing without mentioning the number of pubs opening. My other point to Mooney was that i feel more welcome in the newer style pubs, than the older style pubs. I like to try new places a lot as well as my weekly trip to my usual pub. I've been to lots of pubs in the last 12 months outside my own city and that ive never been to before. There were 2-3 that made me feel a little uncomfortable about being there (myself being non-white and with wife and kids in tow). I guess i was talking about those places to Mooney, and thinking they wouldn't be any great loss.

    thats fair enough. I live in a large city, so have been seeing the shift in type of place but no overall decline in my local area.
