  1. Who decides whether he is a £50m player? Do you need a written offer of intent to purchase?
  2. Unfortunately my memory doesn’t stretch to what the score was at the time but my sense of injustice lingers. I know that Whelan* wasn’t playing so we might have scored the pen! * thanks for saving our season.
  3. Interested if this is fact or has come from social media ‘Chinese whispers’... Apparently around 5000 have been sold... It must be 7 or 8 thousand by now... I heard it was getting on for 10k but that was yesterday so must be over 10k now. Impressive, if it’s factual.
  4. I can’t be the only one who thinks the score line shouldn’t impact whether that was a penalty or not.
  5. No advantage in us guessing. Let’s wait and see, that’s if he get’s a significant chance.
  6. Right in front of the Holte End, I still feel totally puzzled how the ref could not give a penalty for such a blatant foul. Honestly, how could any referee in the world miss the evidence? “He played ‘the advantage’ and missed” would have been the referee’s thought. Yes, because the shot was delivered with his shorts waistband around his knees! Where’s the advantage in that? FFS! One of the few occasions I would support ‘going down’ instead of attempting a shot.
  7. My 50th birthday today. Day off work. Wife currently cooking a full English. Thai meal out with the family tonight. Flying to Vienna on Friday with best mate of 42 years, who is 50 on Thursday. Life’s good and it’s not even a Wednesday!
  8. Good tackles. I’m already for the frustration when most of them are declared fouls against the ‘big’ clubs.
  9. I’m interested to see how good he is for us. He appears to be a good DCM with the added bonus of scoring a goal every season or two.

    I think you did. Do I win?
  11. Nothing wrong with questions. SJM has the answers!

    Wesley Moraes

    Seen him hold his hamstring in a couple of matches so, after keeping it quiet so he could play and impress his new club, perhaps he’s finally admitted it’s more than ‘nothing’ and the club are resting him fully.

    Dean Smith

    That’s a better spirit! Only time will tell whether Smith will succeed with Villa in the PL but we’ll definitely see better football along the way.

    Douglas Luiz

    Picking up a very occasional point or 3 from the top 6 would be a bonus, but I see the key to survival as reasonably consistently taking all 3 points from the lower half teams.
  15. Been watching StuntPegg videos for a while now. I have a daughter her age and, without trying to sound patronising, I think StuntPegg produces some really good football content, not just for her age. Good to see insightful football analysis away from the glamour of the PL. Watching the plight of Bolton last season helped my perspective on Villa’s stuttering season (until the incredible final quarter). StuntPegg saw straight through the lazy ‘doing a Fulham’ stuff by looking at past history, the date and type of players we have signed (including that we already had 3 of them last season). Interesting that 5 of the last 6 teams promoted teams, who immediately spent over £50m on numerous players, survived. A higher survival rate than promoted teams who have not ‘invested heavily’. So why compare us to Fulham instead of the teams who invested and survived? Because it’s the most recent and lazy.

    Douglas Luiz

    Still better than being backed up.

    Douglas Luiz

    Is that like bagsy-ing the front seat? Are you even young enough to be eligible?

    Douglas Luiz

    I’ve owned both so I’m a double ended tool. I’ve tattooed ‘Luiz’ on one end and ‘Douglas’ on the other, just in case I needed to keep on topic. Hurt like hell but so glad I did it now - gotta keep the mods happy.
  19. One of my principles - never share anything that says ‘please share’. From those stupid chain letters (on physical paper kids!) back in the early eighties to now, the information is garbage.

    Wesley Moraes

    Deano has his back to us but is definitely biting his nails. It must mean that several players have been wiped out. He walked off to sign another half dozen. Or so.

    Dean Smith

    They are ‘one-offs’. There’s a concern it wouldn’t be repeatable.

    Wesley Moraes

    Surely today will be a rest day, especially for those who played 70 minutes. At the very most there will be a set programme of exercises so it’s very doubtful Wes would be asked to perform the uncontrolled moves required for a game, even a friendly.
