    I can see a few faces there. The screaming ghoul face in the bottom right of bottom photo is freaky!! Every time you descend the stairs it's like you are plunging into hell.
  2. Well isn't life strange. If snowychap hadn't have posted anything about golf the other day I would have £50 less in my bank! Haven't bet on the golf in a while, nor been on here in a while, but came on the other day and had a little nose in this thread and I saw snowy's bets and purely based on him knowing his golf, chucked some cash on kuchar. Just wish I would have done your other tip also but...thank you and a virtual pint sliding your way.

  4. I thought it was quite funny. I'll tell you what I also find funny: anally retentive folk who try to 'police' forums...and also nicotene starved folk who has time on a saturday night to post a message about an anally retentive message...and the phrase anally retentive...
  5. If downing goes, we should re-invest that money into a player of slightly less calibre than him, then when (and if) he becomes as good as downing was, sell him onto a bigger club so he can live out his champions league dream and we (randy) will make a tidy little profit of a few million! Repeat this cycle every season then in about 10 years time we (randy) will have a nice bit of cash in our (his) bank and can perhaps buy an older Bojan or someone like that, then have a crack at the league! Good times ahead folks!
  6. Yes, I remember reading this board in the past when everyone always agreed and there were never heated arguments... Heh! But not to the extent of a pre-season protest.
  7. Well, the first tangible negative to next season has occured: Randy has created disharmony amoungst us fans Nice one Randy! Good fan management! Let's **** pray that he is genius and will prove the majority of us wrong...
  8. Football is football. We don't do things that much different than say Italy, Germany or Spain. Ok, the Spanish like to pass it round a bit more, or Barcelona specifically, but they spanked Man U in the final so, yeh, bring on someone like Rijkaard, Van Gaal or whoever is proven at managing a football team well.
  9. I'm pre-empting a bit here but - remember when MON got the Villa job and he turned up at either VP or BH to the reception of a thousand joyfull fans!! Now, if Mcleish gets the job, well.... :shock:
  10. Yeh, I know. That is just rubbing f'king salt in the wound!
  11. Well said macca. Not my idea of a good appointment but if be gets it we still need to support the team. I think most fans utlimately will to an extent but right now I think it also important to express these opinions, no matter how over the top they are.
  12. What if he brought in 4 or 5 cracking signings and we smashed our first game 4-0. Would people be happy or moaning because it wasn't Mark Hughes standing in the dugout? Surely it's not too much to ask to give the man a chance if he does get appointed..... Oh, I will give him a bit of a chance but I know that there are a lot more fans with much less patience than me. From the outset he will be a ticking time-bomb with a shorter fuse than usual. That's no way to begin a season! His wins will be praised less than they should, and his losses will be scrutinized more and the effect multiplied by 10! You can't seriously begin a season with a guy that a load of fans, in a weird way, want to fail just so they can say 'Look! I told you so! get him out!'
  13. I Just want to add ANOTHER similar response that Mcleish is a bad judgment if chosen. So many reasons, but alienating fans before the start of the season is a huge one! I don't think they fully appreciate the knock-on effect that this will have. Imagine: the first game of the season - which should, and usually would be, 'buzzin'' with anticipation and excitment! But instead, you've got 10,000 less than capacity, the fans that are there look over to the dugout and see the guy who was wearing our fiercest rival's colours just a few months ago (and took them down), now in charge of the Villa. There is a muted atmosphere and the team don't get the support they deserve and we lose our first home game. Many fans will await the smallest slip up to get on Mcleish's back and this will effect subsequent performances and we will then have another mediocre season at best. This, for me, is a likelihood if Mcleish is appointed. After one of our worst seasons in a while the fans need something to excite them, to make them think 'ah, ok now we can move on up in the right direction and put that last season behind us!'. Mcleish has the opposite effect as it is already apparent with planned protests and the sentiments on this message board. That is no way to start a season and can only act adversely. We need a manager that can, at least, unify the fans, players and board so we can all sing loudly and proudly from the same hymn-sheet, ready for the new season!
  14. I think it is more than a rumour! BCFC say we have contacted them about him!
  15. Mcleish's style of play is not what I want to see at Villa Park! Setting aside all the other reasons why he shouldn't be appointed, BCFC were one of the most boring teams in the league last season. At least under Martinez we would have got some exciting football to watch...
  16. Many of us on this forum know more about football than Randy and if he feels mcleish is the best man for the job, that will prove it. This is the guy that just took the blose to the championship! All he should get from us is a pat on the back! Surely not! There are some brilliant managers available i.e Rikjkaard and Van Gaal. These must be preferential over Mcleish.
  17. I think even if we'd exhausted all other avenues available, McClaren still wouldn't be in the reckoning. I think the boat has sailed with that one and the fans have spoken. The fans have not spoken. We have had no contact with him. Every manager we have had for the last ten years has been booed at some point so what does it matter. If this board are really making decisions based on what is being said on internet forums then that is weak and not what i call leadership. Back to the blose boards for you son. Enjoy you summer hols!
  18. WARNING! This thread can induce a migraine.
  19. Should have got on betfair mate - he's 40/1 on there. Got a cheeky couple on him as well...and rafa at 13/1 yesterday!
  20. Christ! Rafa is nearly odds on to become manager! All this from rumours and speculation??
  21. According to a source, interviews are being conducted by webcam so flights could be irrelevant.
  22. It's great to watch the odds corrolate with all the speculation. Rafa has shortened from 13/1 to 3/1 joint favorite nearly! hehe!
