  1. 17/18 Promotion Charge

    Totally agree with this. The last 4 months have been a rollercoaster: October - 3 points from 9 November - 12/15 December - 6/18 January - 6/6 We really can’t afford another month like Oct or Dec. They must all be like Nov and Jan so far. If we achieve that, we are well in the mix.

    Wow! Suddenly we’re Selling Chester! Where did that come from? Stop the world, I want to get off.
  3. Ross McCormack

    “Goal Machine Ross McCormack” is it? If I were him I would stay in the sunny land where such headlines are easily earned. Think the goal machine might start rusting and creaking a bit if he cane back to Pom land.

    Guess you just weren’t watching when Dhemba Djemba was strutting his stuff then.
  5. Axel Tuanzebe

    ****’s sake we find a really decent player to try to sign and people are complaining and asking why we’re trying to sign him. Because he’s good?
  6. Birkir Bjarnason

    I’m guessing you haven’t been watching Villa play all that long then.

    X2.

    And in no sense does that tweet, which I think was actually in response to a grovelling climbdown by Barry Fry for foolish comments he had made, refer to Steve Bruce failing to meet his (Xia’s) expectations, which was your initial point. Indeed, Xia has been keen recently to ask Villa fans to be positive and get behind the team and appreciate the step by step improvement that is happening.
  9. John Terry

    Quite, no manager in footballing history has ever tried such a trick on an opposing side.

    Very sad news. Always admired him even when he was playing for W Midlands rivals and was really pleased when he came to us for a couple of seasons. A man whose humanity, generosity and tolerance always seemed to shine through somehow, and who carried his immense sporting talent without any arrogance.

    Sorry x2 post
  12. Steve Bruce

    “One more step. Keep going, lads! #UTV” This is the latest Xia tweet I can see. How does that indicate failed expectations?
  13. Scott Hogan

    “Joke team” may be a bit harsh. I meant they are a jolly mid table championship team who play attacking football but leak lots of goals as well and are never going to progress above their current status. My initial view was that Hogan flourished in that sort of football but had failed to adapt to the bigger task of trying to get promotion with a larger club with higher expectations and a troubled recent history. However, watching his performance yesterday I was impressed and I was just wondering whether the Villa manager and coaching team might have had a positive influence on his play.

    So how do you - as an individual commentator - cope with the fact that he appears to be getting his goal scoring act together? Could it possibly be that Steve Bruce is having a positive impact on Hogan and getting him to play effectively in a team seriously aiming for promotion rather than a joke team like Brentford?
  15. Scott Hogan

    It was a superb goal. Surely as Villa fans we can all agree on that?
