    “I think we’d be looking a little closer to home.” MON - On then River Plate striker Radamel Falcao; opting for Emile Heskey.
  1. Because you know Bruce heard the score today and couldn't help but smile...
  2. Posted it during match.. and it certainly applies after this latest dismal display. I know everyone blamed Bruce and now Smith, but it really doesn't matter who manages this squad, it's just not talented. IMO I put the blame on the clubs preseason economic uncertainty that kept us from buying good players. Once we got the green light, it was Bruce trying to get bits-and-pieces from the salvage yard to compete against teams that had already made quality signings. I know I'm in the super minority, but I don't blame Bruce or Smith because I don't think even Pep can make chicken salad out of this Villa poop.'

  4. True. I'm of the belief that if you're just settling for a playoff, stay home. If the boys aren't of the mental frame "F-that! The league title isn't out of reach so stay home if you haven't got the mangos to fight for what's ours!"
  5. If we have to rely on just one player (Jack) we're screwed! No excuse! No Jack? Grow some Kumquats!!!!!
  6. hahaha.. I didn't catch that! I guess it does look that way.
  7. I'd like to know what he was exactly asked to do by the people who managed him at Villa, which by the way, have no current jobs, just showing how bad they really are. Guess it doesn't matter anymore as he's no longer here. I'm sure being in the mid table (with game in hand) in the Serie A and starting for the 4th ranked team in the world, he'd agree with you that he'd wouldn't want to play in a charity game for Villa either
  8. He is dong really well. I watch all South American World Cup qualifiers as IMHO are the best in the world, so I've actually witnessed all of his games with Colombia. He was MOM by the Argentina station I watched last night that transmitted the Colombia-Paraguay match. He was great in their last game against then undefeated Ecuador. IMO I don't even think its not so much all the Villa players anymore, I think its the culture, the losing mentality that has infested itself in the players minds. I think they play out of their capabilities in a desperate attempt to turn things around. To say Sanchez, Guzan, Gana, etc., aren't good enough for the team that sees League One in the rear view mirror, please.
  9. Bwahaha.. Funny how he leaves and West Ham looks like Barcelona on the attack and score.
  10. Great game by Sanchez tonight in Santiago, Chile against the reigning Copa America champion. Sanchez was one of the players singled out by Colombia boss Jose Pekerman for his play and silencing of Vargas, cutting into Sanchez's diagonal runs and stumping Chile playmaker Matias Fernandez. btw 1-1 final, oh, and that Colombia and Sampdoria striker Luis Muriel MOM would look great in a Villa kit.
  11. Bwahahaha.. Lot's of papers and TV sports shows here in Chile talking about how Argentina is fortunate not to be playing the "Anti-Messi". Colombia very unlucky as they not only lose Sanchez but also their other starting defensive mid, Edwin Valencia who plays for Brazilian giants Santos. He tore his right ACL during the Peru match. Haha! The Anti-Messi It does sound funny, but it's kinda true. I don't think you need to know Spanish to understand the headline from this recent story on Sanchez. I admit does sound funny, but facts don't lie. http://colombia.as.com/colombia/2015/06/18/futbol/1434594383_952961.html

  13. Sanchez was just named to the Copa America group stage Best XI. However, feel bad for him as he'll now misses the Argentina match due to yellow card accumilation.
  14. He's really good in Colombia's two-man midfield in a 4-2-3-1 That's not really the same thing though is it? The central of the 3 provides a certain nuisance factor regardless of their work rate and/or defensive ability. It also provides him with a forward outlet not available in a standard 4-4-2 midfield. I didn't really understand his role on Saturday and I was left thinking that neither did he. Are you talking about the "3" in a 4231?
