  1. He's had a really strong season so far for Stuttgart in the 2. Bundesliga too. For me he would be a good one to pick up on a free, he certainly has that fight that we could do with... I personally don't think he is that much of a trouble maker. The press have always been gunning for him. A couple of boozy nights out isn't exactly criminal in my opinion. On the field he has only ever given 110% to any club he was at. @The_Rev We could sign him for free, he has no club!
  2. anyone on here seen the news about Kevin Großkreutz being sacked by Stuttgart? http://www.bbc.com/sport/football/39158305 As a lifelong Villa fan who has lived near to Dortmund for the best part of 10 years, I cant help but think that he would be a great addition to our squad. I have a season ticket here in Dortmund and have seen him play numerous times as well as know what sort of character he is. Admittedly he has made a few mistakes, but nothing more than many of our current stock have done. However his comittment to the cause more than justifies the odd slip-up in my opinion
  3. Hi General, Just a quick question, is there any chance/plans to have the fixture list in a format where we can subscribe to it via iCal, Outlook etc.? It would be the perfect solution for myself and probably many others, especially when Sky change all the game times! I presume it would be fairly simple to implement, and would be a great help... As for the appointment, I'll be supporting him and the team whatever his past. He's got 'guts', and that is exactly what we need!!! UTV

  5. I went to see Borussia Dortmund play against City last night as I live out here at the moment. I couldn't believe how slow Barry was! I'm not sure if i'd forgotten or he has actually got slower! I think with hindisght, getting rid of him was a great bit of business! He gave a away the saftest penalty after 5mins, I was wetting myself!!! I say bring in Ireland and let's get this season cracking... UTV
  6. Great words General! Sometimes its easy to get pulled into the trend of 'big spending', but I am sure good things will come to the Villa who continue to always do the 'right thing' for the fans and for the team. It makes me proud to be a Villain. Keep up the good work guys, and I look forward to the new season. UTV
  7. tickets aren't too hard to come by for Dortmund, although obviously the bigger games are harder! If you can get in the 'South Stand' (Sud Tribune) the atmosphere is immense. Almost 30k all standing. I think the tickets there also start from around €10-15, not bad...
  8. Dortmund is the choice for you! I've become a bit of a closet fan myself since moving to the area a couple of years back! the fan base is by far the best in Germany (I think there average attendance is something like 2-3rd in Europe) and the stadium is incredible. Dortmund is good. I won't claim its the best city in the world, but it's also not bad. Location-wise in Germany its very good. If you want to know anything else, let me know, i'd be happy to help out. You said about the financial trouble, but this is much better these days. They have a very young team which is doing very well,
  9. Hi General, I am a longtime reader of this forum and perhaps a not so regular poster. Either way I love reading your posts & really believe it’s a great time to be a Villa fan at the moment, thanks… I am not sure if you have already seen in the Other Football forum the topic on Attendances across Europe’s top leagues. One club thrown up in this topic who are perhaps not the obvious choice are Borussia Dortmund in Germany. I have been a Villa ST holder for almost 20 years now (I am only in my mid twenties!) and continue to be one although I have been living the last couple of years
  10. both Coca-Cola cup finals & the last FA cup final! Let's hope I can get to see my fourth, UTV...
  11. season ticket holder & have been for about 15 years, although currently living in Germany so haven't been able to get to as many games as I would like recently but I still make about 5-10 games per season! If we can make it into the Europa league & they draw some Germans teams, maybe I can beat this number!!!
  12. English, & also pretty good in Italian & German. My German is getting better as I live there and my girlfriend is desperate for me to learn it! I also understand 'Brummie' quite well!
  13. if last weeks events aren't enough for a new song/adaptation i don't know what is! how about a twist on the classic Carew song: John Carew, Carew, He's bigger than me and you, he like's a stripper or two, John Carew, Carew It's got my vote!
  14. Hi General, Just a quick question, is there any reason why on avfc.co.uk you have to click 'enter' twice before you can get into the site? My Dad also has the same problem and therefore I don't think its just me with the problem (so to speak!). If there is no reason, is there any chance it could be changed to a single click entry? Thanks for your time & keep up the good work, Up the Villa
  15. Barry, Barry, Barry… I will be sorry to see him go (if he does ever make it out the door), but in all honesty the Villa have bigger things to worry about! He has been a great servant to the club for many years, but is he irreplaceable? I personally think he is not. I am sure, should he go, that the Villa will not let him go cheaply and for the money that has been talked about then lets cash in and build a team full of quality that actually wants to play for us. As for his comments in the NOTW, well for a start it’s hardly the most reliable source, and besides I personally think its mo
  16. Hi General, Firstly I would just like to echo the views of many on here, and say thanks for all the good work you guys have put in to put our club firmly back on the map. As we are all aware, the transfer season is well and truly in overdrive. My question is how is a transfer actually done? I’m sure most of us know the basics but I am interested to know exactly what goes on to make a transfer happen? Who is involved? What do the FA require etc…? I understand you cannot disclose individual cases, but I thought perhaps this could be a way for us to understand what goes on behind the sce
