  1. Well we are talking about Mick McCarthy here.
  2. I don’t think anyone was “clamouring” for names and addresses. The press made a formal submission in a court of law that was considered by judges in the context of the law as it applies to everyone, and a ruling was made. The police officers in question were also able to put forward their case but note that even they dropped the requirement for anonymity. No addresses were published. There was no case for anonymity here. If they are “completely innocent”, at least now we will know the names of the innocent.

  4. When you are low down the premier league one chance us maybe all you’re going to get. And we need someone who can take those chances. Anyways, your riddle doesn’t work because the example you cite is where the catcher got a good ball but still didn’t catch it.
  5. Did a lot to help us lose the game today. Not sure we can afford to play him when we are 17th and trying to survive.
  6. Special mention for Douglas Luiz who ducked under the ball for the first goal. Not sure that’s what you’re supposed to do when in a wall.
  7. To be fair, Targett didn’t fare much better against Adama.
  8. We have been fortunate that Wolves, despite dominating us and opening up frightening gaps outside our penalty area, have been poor with their final balls. A team playing sharper football would have been 2 or 3 up by now.
  9. The extraordinary decision to withhold the names of the accused is being challenged in the courts next week and I will be amazed if it is not overturned. Remember we are not in the USA so any incidents there are not relevant. It is extremely rare in this country for the names of people accused of murder to be withheld and the grounds for doing it in this case are frankly ludicrous.
  10. Shocking that the accused have been granted anonymity - apparently on the grounds that their lives would be at risk if their names were known. Who do they think is going to try to kill them? I believe this is virtually unprecedented legally and doesn’t bode well for the transparency of the trial.
  11. Not convinced that is the right emoji to go with that statement.

    Dean Smith

    Don’t really see what other attitude he could take. First, it means he is aiming for a player to improve as far as possible while with Villa - which benefits the team. And secondly, if a player gets to a stage where they want to move on to what they see as better opportunities, it is counterproductive to try to hold them back. I find his approach encouraging.
  13. Thou hast committed the great sin of questioning saint Smith of Villa Park. Thou shalt be castigated, mocked and cast out from Villatalk . Enjoy the wilderness.
