  1. Frustrating stuff but we are still very much a work in progress - its a blip, not a crisis. Thought we were very good for the first 80 mins and that John McGinn was head and shoulders the best player on the pitch
  2. Got what we deserved. Too many had poor games. Son is a very good player
  3. Got one of these for my son off his favourite YouTuber during the first covid lockdown when I couldn't see him for a few months and the guy put loads of effort into it, really went out of his way and my lad loved it. Got one ironically for my Mrs from some reality TV bod that she likes, was literally a 10 second video saying happy birthday and clearly hadn't even bothered learning her name as was reading (badly) off the screen. Shithouse. It's not the overall concept of these sites that annoys me but some of them people on there who really shouldn't need an extra £20 from recording 10 second videos. Michael Owen has rightly been pointed out as a prime example.
  4. I like Smith, but unfortunately he... 1) can't organise a defence 2) is ideologically wedded to playing a 4-3-3 3) is incapable of having us play good football without Jack Grealish in the team Trollface.jpeg From where I'm sat he has continually improved us and himself ever since arriving and continues to answer every criticism put forward about him. Long may it continue
  5. Sticking with Nuno, hopefully a big home loss against the Villa will finish him off
  6. Given the almost pathological tendency of Villa fans to fight amongst ourselves, I reckon any launching of beer would soon be stamped out. Even so, as much as I really want to support this, if I'm honest it's a bad idea with more negatives than positives
  7. Not worried about him at all, was still pressing the United defence into injury time yesterday and have no doubt that him and Ings will click soon enough and become a deadly partnership
  8. Can't wait til his brother's starting games alongside him so we can chant "they're two of our own, they're two of our own, the Ramsey brothers, they're two of our own"
  9. Currently looking a match for any midfield in the league, all three in great form and complimenting each other fantastically. Massive credit to the players, Smith and the coaching staff
  10. Looking back to his best and improving every week, you love to see it
  11. Utterly immense this season so far, that through ball in the first half which led to Targett's big chance was just
  12. All the signs so far of a typical game against this lot. Promising first 25 mins, looking the better team, not taking our chances... contentious Man U penalty coming in 10 mins and then another scrappy goal for them just after half time to finish the game off
  13. I think this misses the context in which the word is used slightly. In (particularly the west of) Scotland, the word is used not so much to refer to the Irish Republican Brotherhood but more generally as a sectarian slur against any Scottish person from an Irish Catholic background - added to the history of anti-catholic discrimination up there it then takes on a whole new (and much more offensive) meaning. While it may not be offensive to Irish people per se, it is likely to be understood very differently by a Scottish person of Irish descent, such as John McGinn
  14. Had a really strong start to the season for me, pleased to see him playing better again as he's a brilliant footballer when he's on form
  15. Have to say that I think his integration and development into the first team has been handled brilliantly by Smith and the club - a really positive sign moving forwards
  16. Not sure how we've lost that 3-0, first half was the best football that a Villa side not containing Jack Grealish has played in about 6 years. It's going to take a while to click but we'll be fine
