  1. Aside from everything mentioned, the thing I like most about this is the timing of our transfers. The approach and targets are allowing us to get in early, and in previous seasons, this has been the domain of Fergie and the richer clubs. Now I'm not talking here about the amount being spent. Its about the fact that they had their business lined up to get a lot done early on. To me, it was a sign that those clubs had a plan. With this now happening with us, albeit with a different level of player, it wreaks of controlled, structured thinking. That can only breed confidence. The other th
  2. The Grove is on Maple Road in Surbiton. Not too far from me. Its changed hands many times and not sure it shows the live matches on a Saturday. Or there's the Spring Grove in Kingston, but again, not sure it shows live Saturday matches.
  3. So will the USA and Japan both get a medal? :?
  4. My wife to be is from Blewbury, near Abingdon, so that now makes the C&B aspect of Oxfordshire that bit bigger :-)
  5. Dunno if its ever been done before, (probably been done or discussed to death so apologies), but instead of 'Welcome to the Hotel California', we could sing 'Welcome to the Holte End Aston Villa'? Something like that anyway...
  6. Yes they know they gave him too much rope and it won't happen again ! Also whilst not privvy obviously to the exact details the contracts we are offering the likes of Hogg / Bannan / Clarke and Herd / Lichah are far more keeping with their progress and the current climate . To think NRC is looking for 50k a week which is at least 12 times what Hogg is probably on makes you think a bit clearer how things have spiralled out of control from average players demanding ridiculous weekly wages everywhere not just Villa ! The whole thing will come tumbling down for a lot of these so so players though
  7. I think KMac knows he won't get it, but has tasted the big time and wants more of it. So by interviewing for the role, he is now moving into upper management circles. This just could be a move from him to alert Championship clubs to a new direction he's prepared to take? Would be a shame to lose him from the reserves, but I can't help but feel that he might want to move up from the reserves level now.
  8. It has no bearing on his ability as a manager, but I liked the way he conducted himself in the post match interviews as well.
  9. Unless they realise that Man City will most likely take the other CL place next year so they're banking the cash and only making minimal improvements this year. Would be in keeping with Levy's management of the finances. Not to say that they won't try to get 4th, but currently looking unlikely for us, them, Plop and Everton.
  10. Am on the fence about Sven. At least he wouldn't have a huge buyout clause santioned by Randy and has good scouting links. Southgate would be a joke after his departure comments, let alone his ability as a manager. Hiddink I can't see happening, but Jol would be good.
  11. I believe the latest way to up your post count is to say "This.". I think that would be appropriate here. Doesn't matter their name or nationality. Just win us something. This
  12. Mumford and Sons - The Cave Quite unlike my normal taste but I like this. Good melody and crescendo
  13. Don't. You. Dare. hes lay down the gauntlet there so my question is is it impossible to find out the answer to that question? It is far from impossible, and you're all b*stards Is post on all posters allowed here??
