  1. I’ve worked in office based roles for twenty plus years and wouldn’t mark somebody down for not wearing a full suit. Shirt and tie is nice to see though, especially at interviews. All the very best mate
  2. I love McGinn, I really do, but unless he provides a response in training, then i would consider dropping him against Newcastle. No player is bigger than the team and if you don’t perform, you should run the risk of being dropped. Otherwise, what message does it send out to the rest of the squad? Very much hope though that the last couple of weeks have been a minor blip and we see the usual SJM in two weeks.
  3. Brilliant news mate! . Little steps forward to the top and your beloved Aston Villa.
  4. Seeing more Bowery than Benteke at present. Perhaps being part of the national side will up his game tenfold?
  5. Looks completely knackered to me? Needs a two week break now or we should consider a change for the Newcastle game.
  6. Starting to worry a little now. Wesley should be a project where we can remove him from a game here and there or sub him earlier. Problem is we should have bought another striker in the summer to compete with him and we didn’t for whatever reason. January signing is key.
  7. So what? They’ve just won a local derby and have the bragging rights today. We’d be the same.
  8. Watched the game at the in-laws who are all Wolves fans. Bad day all round, although the pork sandwich's that were presented softened the mood. Injuries pre game and during clearly rocked us, but let’s not dress up what was a very poor performance from us. The least I want to see is fight and it was lacking first half and only slightly improved in the second. Trezeguet MOTM (only just) and not because he scored, but he was the brightest of our forward thinking players today. Nakamba was ok, McGinn poor. El Ghazi anonymous first half and only gave us something in the final 20 minutes. Wesley fed off scraps, but he fluffed his chance and should have done far far better with it. At least hit the target man. Defence seemed rocky all game. Where is Hause? Would have preferred him coming on to mark Adama. So to the goals. Wolves first you could see coming and we should be switched on to someone on the edge of the area. Poor. The second, well for starters the Luiz challenge out wide was laughable. I didn’t actually think we’d score, but pleased for Trez. In summary, we were terrible. Wolves kept the ball much better, but didn’t think they were great and we made them look better than they were. As previously said, injuries rocked us, but where was our fight and desire? Smith needs to rally the troops quickly, which is difficult during an international fortnight, but confidence building is key now. We need to be ready and blow Newcastle away in the next.
  9. Hope this Heaton rumour being out is just that and a nothing story. His presence gives me greater confidence than Steer. Hoping for a win of course, but realistically can see a draw from this.
  10. Grant Holt standing still and Gary Penrice. Both awful strikers for us. Finally, after a very promising debut, Carlton Cole was very poor.
  11. No reason why we shouldn’t be confident either. Wolves aren't hitting the heights of last season and their best defender is out (Boly). We certainly shouldn’t fear them, but respect that they are useful going forward. Grealish out (if he is) would be a blow to us, but I think our energy in midfield may be too much for them. Their midweek game could play a part hopefully with tiredness etc. My real concern here is that we have been conceding second half goals cheaply and Wolves seem to love a late goal. Can therefore see us going 1or 2 goals ahead and then us being pegged back. Hoping for a 2-1 win, but could end up 2-2 or a 2-1 defeat. One thing is for sure, it won’t end up 0-0.
  12. That’s him. Yeah, I remember the plumber as well and agree, he likes the working family background types for sure. He’s in the final at least i reckon (Thomas).
  13. The young lady fired last night was pretty useless to be fair. However, looking back over Lord Sugar’s firing during this series especially, it doesn’t paint him in a good light. I think Lord Sugar has a real soft spot for the big fella, but can’t think of his name?Annoying as he is.
  14. Have to choose my words very very carefully here, but I for one will not miss R Godsiff or his support staff one bit. Not pleasant people and any change will be refreshing.
  15. Apologies, Keith thought you said “hog roast”!
  16. Wish people would just leave him alone for a while now. He’s got a very busy few weeks ahead and my children are certainly looking forward to seeing him at the Merry Hill grotto!
  17. Limited footballer, yes. Woeful, no. Could do a job for someone in the Championship or League One.
  18. I always thought he looked decent at Brentford and honestly think that if we hadn’t have got promoted, he’d probably be in our squad right now. As you say, an underrated player in the championship.
  19. I mentioned our OS prior to the last meeting about how bad, and how out of date some of the content is. Can we raise the issue of our website please? Do the club acknowledge that there are issues with it or are they happy with it compared to other Premier League clubs? Be good to hear there thoughts. On another note, following the well publicised upgrades around the ground during the summer, could the club confirm what the next phase of upgrades/improvements are going to be? Finally, and apologies if this has already been addressed previously, but do the club have any plans to change the club badge, rename stands or rename Villa Park itself?
  20. If we need a player to hold the ball and play off, then there’s only one real option for me: Every team needs an Akinfenwa!
  21. Strange feeling this evening. Half of me is a bit fed up losing to a 94th minute goal, but half of me is immensely proud of the players and staff this evening. We’ve just given the current champions of Europe and leaders of the league one helluva game, that they were fortunate to win in the end. Champions elect do this kind of thing where they just keep going and don’t accept being beaten. How many times down the years have we seen Man Utd and more recently Man City score last minute/injury time goals. It’s that never say die/winning mentality. Devastating as it is to lose, I truly believe playing like we have today that we will stay in this league and hopefully do so with some points to spare. Annoying, gutting, heart wrenching, but proud of my team. UTV
