    forum /ˈfɔːrəm/ Learn to pronounce noun 1. a meeting or medium where ideas and views on a particular issue can be exchanged. Even before I made my post I knew someone would come along and say something along these lines, a i felt pretty much obliged to pre-justify my post with a ‘I don’t mean to put a downer on things..’ This is a forum. A forum is a place for debate, where you talk about a particular topic. It is EXACTLY the place to discuss where there might have been an error. Increasingly you can’t seem to make an observation here without someone coming along and saying something like ‘only villa fans can somehow focus on a negative..’ seriously? It’s hardly ‘focus’ is it? It’s not like I made a comment in the post match thread saying ‘winning 5-1 doesn’t mean shit if we got a keeper who did THAT.’ it’s the Heaton thread. Where I suggested he could have done better. What’s wrong with that? It’s a debate. That’s what forums are for.
  2. Didn't know we had that detective fella working with the first team? Did I miss that news?

    Wesley Moraes

    Its surprisingly easy to grab a line from a post and make it look like it's "pathetic" posting that "deserves calling out". Both those quotes that I've highlighted are mine. You'll find that I said "sitting on the floor crying like a little bitch" after he spent 90 minutes sitting on the floor... crying like... well, a little bitch. You'll also find that I said "The only thing he's trying to do is win a freekick - and he's pretty crap at it" after he spent 90 minutes falling over at the lightest nudge then berating the ref for not getting a freekick when clearly there was no foul. So, yes, he was pretty crap at it. This is a part of his game that has been evident since day one. What you failed to "quote" is, that in the same posts, and in some of my other posts I have highlighted that his two goals so far have both been beautifully taken, and that his performance against Everton proves that he is a capable player. The point that I was making (and therefore putting those two highlighted quotes in CONTEXT) is that if he cut these negative aspects out of his game, and put as much effort into winning the ball as he did in play acting, he would be much better off for it. And guess what? He didn't roll around crying like a little bitch, he didn't pretend he was fouled at every single touch... and he scores 2 and we score 5. I was absolutely gutted for him that he missed his penalty. We were 2 up, and in the grand scheme of things didn't matter too much from a team point of view - but I would have loved for him to have completed his hat-trick - because believe it or not, I want Villa, and all our players to do well. To put the record straight, I certainly wasn't "turning on him after 7 matches" - but rather I was making my position clear on his antics. Despite what you suggest in your post, it has nothing to do with the fact that he is a new signing. If ANY of our players was behaving the way he has been, I'd be upset by it. I am happy that he got 2 goals. But I am DELIGHTED that he behaved himself in a way that doesn't embarrass Aston Villa. His behaviour is what was "pathetic" and deserved "calling out". It WAS "called out" by our management, and it seems he is better off for it. Quite frankly point proven. Well done Wesley, keep it up. Lets just hope he doesn't revert to his stupid antics again when things aren't going his way.

    Don’t mean to put a downer on a 5-1 win, and have to admit I didn’t see the whole game... so by no means am I judging his whole game.. ...I know Mings sold him short.. I know the sun prob got in his eyes... But my god, he was surely still favourite to get to it, and really should have plucked the ball with his hands instead of a half-arsed swipe at clearing it? For me could (and should) have done better. Edit : will not delete what I wrote, but of course it just dawned on me that it was a back pass, duh! i take it back.

    If he scores, but spends the the whole 90 minutes play acting then no, I wont't get off his back. If he doesn't score, but puts in a performance - then I'll be the first to say well done. Every minute that he's sitting on the floor crying like a little bitch for being touched is a minute that we're down to 10 men. That is my biggest gripe with him. Sort that out first and foremost, and most on here will be more forgiving of his other short-comings.

    Working hard isn't all about running around closing people down, it's about doing the job you're given. When he's not up for it, he just throws himself to the ground rather than deal with the physicality. TRY to hold it up, TRY to win a header, TRY to hold the defender off. There's none of that. The only thing he's "trying" to do is win a freekick - and he's pretty crap at it. I want him to do well. He's got the raw attributes to do it. He's already done it (one game out of 7) But I can't stand this kind of petulance from any player - It's horrible to watch someone in a villa shirt do it.

    Not writing Wesley off. just saying that he spends too much time not moaning, and not trying at all. Making him ‘undroppable’ is promoting this attitude. His total contribution against burnley was to slow down our attacks by faking injury. Nothing positive at all. He needs to know he needs to work hard, we know he has it in him because he’s done it against Everton. He’s not showing any desire, just sulks and fakes injury. It’s tiresome watching. Davis needs to start, even if it’s just a boot up the arse for Wes.

    I’m not happy with his performances at the moment, but both his goals were beautifully taken. So clearly he has something about him. it’s his general demeanour and this ridiculous self pity and lying on the floor when the rest of the team are busting a gut to try to get the ball back which has got me really annoyed. Especially when 90% of the time he HASN’T been fouled. Rolling around for 3 minutes when you’ve barely been touched, or sitting on your knees moaning at the ref will NOT get you what you want. You’d think he’d have learnt that by now. You’re not doing yourself or your team mates any favours. Grow the **** up. If you need to know how to deal with being fouled, just take a look at McGinn.

    John McGinn

    It’s a short career. And when an agent is in your ear saying the elite clubs in Europe want you, unless you have no ambition at all, you’ll want a move. We don’t need the money. No one is suggesting that we do. However, McGinn doesn’t NEED to play for us. What he does need is to look back on his career and know that he achieved as much as he possibly could have. This is not something that we can offer in the next few years. Right now, he could pretty much walk into any team in the league. And he probably knows it, as does his agent, and as do the elite clubs. So when Man U come along saying ‘Here’s £80m’, we’re going to have problems. Not because we’ll be thinking ‘ooooooh, money!’ But because McGinn will say ‘That’s more than fair, you have to let me go.’

    Absolutely unbelievable player. I knew he’ll be gone in a season or two, and this depresses me.

    For every one player that played shit at first and turned out to be amazing, theres 15,000,000 that were shit, and remained shit. He doesn’t try, he cries like a little girl, and he falls over at every opportunity. He’s embarrassing. If/when he cuts this crap out, bring him back into the team. 90% of the time we’re playing with 10 men, because he’s lying on the floor rolling around and the referee has no intention of giving a freekick. He doesn’t even try to win a header, and his entire game revolves around pretending to be fouled. Get the **** up, and play the game.

    99% of the time he falls over doesnt ‘make sense’
  14. Good game. getting better every time he plays
  15. Too weak in defence. Twice today got out-muscled when he was clear favourite to get the ball.

    His kicking hasn’t been very good.

    And played pretty damn well in every game.

    Wesley Moraes

    Awful. He can’t start again until 1) he grows a pair and stops crying like a little girl with every challenge. 2) he grows a pair and stops crying like a little girl with every challenge 3) he grows a pair, and stops rolling around on the floor when he should be busting a gut to get into the box Why smith keeps him on for 85 minutes when he’s by some distance the worst player on the pitch is beyond me.
  19. Grealish was everywhere and put in a LOT of effort. Passing was uncharacteristically poor from him I think southgate being at the stadium didnt help. Wesley was very poor.

    To be honest, I was dubious watching his YouTube ‘highlights’ video when we signed him.
  21. I’ve never really had a problem. i say ‘really’, because my phone stopped working for ages, but I never used it and couldngbe bothered with an engineer to come fix it. eventually i called one in, and he fixed it. ive got 500Mb, which runs at 500Mb. Never an issue.
  22. I’m surprised. He’s done pretty well defensively, so swapping him for Hause won’t help much. The main issue is that he offers ZERO going forward, but I can’t imagine Hause doing much more from open play either.
  23. Both were yellows. Both were stupid, needless fouls. The ref was an utter disgrace, but THIS he got right. You can’t just run full pelt at the opposition in the hope that you might get the ball. To do it whilst you’re on a yellow is just sheer stupidity.
  24. Appalling ref. Our yellows were yellows, not going to argue.. but when their guy is tugging on McGinns shirt.. nothing. Grealish brought down, but wasn’t even claiming a penalty, Lansbury scores a legitimate goal. what the **** was Trez thinking?! Two appalling bookings.
