    Team sheet as expected. Lansbury unlucky to miss out but you can’t play everyone. No back up centre back again. Definitely a position to look at this summer! Up the Villa!

    Anyone got any tips/plans on how to stay sane until 17:00 tomorrow?? Can’t think about anything but Villa.

    Tomorrow is going to be tough, more bearable if you’re going, plenty to take your mind off it. Nothing for it other than to get on the beers to pass the time! Would like to remember the match though

    Also Bank Holiday weekend and people may have other plans. Suspect we might not actually sell our allocation.

    Prices are shocking, £36 cheapest with the majority being £52

    17/18 Promotion Charge

    Get where you’re coming from, and understand why you don’t fancy paying beyond your season ticket, but it’s a business and not a charity. Staff and overheads to open up Villa Park an additional time beyond the standard season got to be covered. Would be a remarkable gesture and at the end of the day would be coming out of Tony’s back pocket, potentially reducing funds for other purposes, buying players etc. Don’t mind paying an additional £20-30 personally

    Good free kick though

    17/18 Promotion Charge

    The gap between us and Cardiff is the same as us and Fulham. I don’t think Fulham will be feeling so negative about 4 points so neither should we with the gap to Cardiff. Particularly as we’ve got to play them at home which could bring that down to 1point as well as other tough games against Wolves and Derby. It’s still ALL to play for, including that top spot!

    Thought he deserved a mention for another clean sheet today in a high pressure game. Did everything asked of him comfortably. Always made the right choices as far as I could see.

    Takes the pressure off as much as it puts it on. It’s a chance created by others by ultimately the lads should be focused on winning and 3 points tomorrow irrespective of other results

    Awful refereeing there, can’t be pulling that back for the foul when the ball is still in the box! Cardiff robbed of 2 points. We’ll take it though! Surprised they haven’t dropped off more to be honest. Always expected Cardiff and Sheffield Utd go drop back. Utd have, Cardiff not quite

    I understand he's studying for his coaching badges at present. I imagine that probably aids his understanding of the technical side of the game further. Although he's always been a player that has stood out for his natural understanding and reading of the game rather than any particularly dominant physical characteristics. I read a while back that Bayern Munich support players to gain coaching qualifications whilst still playing as they believe this furthers not only their career after the game, but also during. I believe Philipp Lahm was one example given - not a bad example right. I would wholeheartedly support JT beginning his coaching career at Villa although my head tells me he would be more likely to go to Chelsea. There's a chance they wouldn't have a role for him there however. I used to think he was a bit of a .... but I actually now hold quite a bit of admiration for the guy. Funny thing that...

    So this is what the next 3 months are going to be. Willing each and every other team in the championship to win to suit our needs! Already feels like hard work. Come on Bolton!

    Scoring 12 in a Sunderland side in the lower reaches of the table is some feat. You would have thought they would have been desperate to keep him? Of the goals I’ve seen, they seem like very basic bread and butter finishes. Nothing curling into top corners, just composure when in 1-1 situations against a keeper. I think he’ll be a useful option if say we wanted to play two strikers, need to rest Hogan or pick up an injury. These next few months are about one thing and one thing only, promotion. The more options we have to vary our play or cover certain positions, the more likely we are to be successful. He can take a penalty also which may be important in the playoffs. Astute use of the loan market in my view.
  15. Amavi started for Marseille against Monaco yesterday. He was taken off at half time however when they were 4-0 down. Monaco went on to win 6-1. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/41064133
