  1. United had a perfectly valid goal denied. There's no doubt about it. But last I checked a football match doesn't end in the 41st minute. Saying Sheffield United have been denied 3 points is having a laugh. The entire complexion of a game can change after a goal, especially with more than a half to play. It did they forget what happened the last time we played that lot and they were 3-0 up?

    Is it time for the 25th yet?
  3. After a bit of hesitation seeing the bad reviews I took the plunge and got FM Touch 2020 for my Lenovo Tablet and I'm having a blast. Haven't played FM for 3-4 years but the lack of football tipped me over the edge this time. I don't tend to enjoy managing Villa overly much and usually start off a new iteration of FM with the mighty Plymouth Argyle. Settled on a good tactic that got me successive promotions, managing to agressively improve the list each season with free transfers. So now I'm 10 games into the Championship (Villa are kicking about there too) in the top 4, but I have a feeling my luck's about to change. Picked up Keinan Davis on a free and have him up front, with another ex-Villan, Jordan Graham, on the wing. And yes, Davis was injured in his first match and has spent more time with the physio than with the first team...
  4. Is it just me or did it seem unclear as to whether it not it struck his arm inside or outside the penalty area?
  5. I missed it due to my need to sleep. Woke up at 6am, checked scores, did a quick first pump, whispered "suck shit Deeney", then tried to get back to sleep.
  6. Taremi has roughly a 1 in 2 international scoring rate for a top 30 national team. That's certainly a notch or ten above the likes of Tonev.
  7. My suggestion is to lock this thread, archive it, and move on. Nothing to be gained here whatsoever.
  8. We are ridiculously easy to close down. None of our midfielders provide a target for defenders when they have the ball. Lansbury and Hourihane played 30 minutes between them. You really can't do anything if your midfield doesn't turn up.
  9. Oh, let's fluff around the back with it, then hoooooooooooooffff
  10. Absolutely loved Grealish pressing high up the pitch.
  11. Wonder how Rodriguez will cheat us this time
  12. Bloody Villa. Getting our hopes up again. Stop toying with us you cruel bastards! Loving the fight and attitude today though. Let's hope it keeps going when I Burnley get their inevitable early reply.
  13. The spirit in this team has gone. The bottle we saw at the start of the season has been replaced with petulance. The body language and behaviour of our players and coach today was ridiculous. Need some fighters in there desperately. Certainly could have done with a Whelan or Jedinak out there over the past month.
