    Villa and FFP

    Nicely elaborated

    Villa and FFP

    Completely hypothetical and I have no idea at all on the subject of law etc. However if we were to loose out on autos / prem over two points and because of that we had to sell players / face a fine over not meeting FFP, would villa have a case to say that there decisions (officiating) not being of a required standard has lead to this position, and I wouldn’t say be able to sue, however argue against said fine ? Because if I was villa and this imaginary scenario did happen, I’d deffo want to ask the question.

    Both goals from both sides he was defending...

    Match Thread:West Brom v Villa

    Hutton is s**t. At fault time after time. Should of put muscled Barnes, should of played it back, should of done better. Fell on his arse and cost us another goal.

    Ørjan Nyland

    Says it all really. 5 shots on target. Couldn’t stop one of them. Not like they were 5 unstoppable shots either

    What are Saturdays lottery numbers ?

    Dean Smith

    Played some good stuff today. Was unlucky not to score let alone win. When you sit deep, invite pressure and a defender makes a mistake you can half blame that on tactics as pressure will eventually tell. When you are under no pressure at all and the experienced defender makes a school boy error you can’t put any of that onto management.

    New Manager Speculation

    Whilst I like the idea of a Henry terry partnership. Do both not have differing views on style of play ? Terry has made it known he has been most inspired by mourinho, Henry most inspired by Wenger/guardiola. Hope this doesn’t create arguments in future. Best scenario for me is terry comes in a coaching capacity while he continues to work on his badges. Either way can’t see him playing second fiddle for long

    Steve Bruce

    It’s feels to me like one of those meaningless wins at the end of a season when there’s nothing to play for. A complete lack of excitement due to the fact I already know how this is going to pan out. That we’ll muster up some sort of uncohesive form and scrape together some wins, that Bruce will come out gloating like he’s won us the premier league, that we’ll then go on yet another winless streak, that we’ll then be told we’re all hysterical and he has 4 promotions don’t you know, that if we’re lucky we’ll end up theresbouts because there is above his abilities, that once again we’ll have just been 90 mins away, that he’ll have his team ripped apart again, and that we’ll be left in the s**t because of his inability to get out of a league at the third attempt whilst arguably having the the best team in it for the last 2 years. And I’m just tired of it.

    Steve Bruce

    No wins in 5 and the guy then takes a holiday. This tells me enough that he is feeling the pressure / isn’t in the best place right now. For his sake and ours we need a parting of ways. His decisions are becoming worse and worse as the weeks go on.

    The Villa Finance Thread

    Theres 2 scenarios in my opinion: 1) Xia exaggerated the FFP problems to cover his own back, plus new owners have been given a bit of leniency to get finances in order. 2) They have seen other fines handed out and decided to chance it and have another go, and take the consequences if and when. In reality its probably a little bit of all of those things.

    Always liked the idea of klopps old assistant Buvac “the brain” behind developing the high press system as described by Klopp.

    I think you are right. Always worried when linked to Brentford players, who are clearly being coached well in a system that is essentially making them look better than they are. Take Kemar Roofe for instance, an average striker in previous years, now being coached well is looking like one of the best strikers this season. And Bruce is then the type of mug to go out and spend 12m on him.
