  1. He is 30 and on sky high wages, allegedly. I honestly think his best performances in the PL were when he played for us and that tells its own story. Anyway we have moved on from giving past their players their last big pay day. Much better to pony up the money and buy Tammy. Younger and better.

    If ever there was a player that needs to go out on loan its him. A season at a decent Championship club could be his making. What he really needs is game time which at the moment he is unlikely to get at Villa.
  3. For me the key thing is to hang on to him and the others. I guess whether he goes out on loan will in part depend on signings over the summer. You cant really go wrong loaning to a decent Championship side. Its a tough physical league and it will benefit any of them.
  4. Really disappointed that it did not work out for him particularly as he started with such promise. In some ways his decline in form saved us a problem. Chelsea allegedly wanted £35m for him and he is on high wages. We could certainly spend that money better and we should not break our wages structure which has taken years to fix. Also he probably fails the test set by Purslow of only buying younger players with resale value.

    Dean Smith

    Despite the rollercoaster of this season 11th is a very creditable position given last season and he has earned his right to manage next season. He makes mistakes for sure and still has plenty to learn. The more established in PL we are and the better our squad is the more chance we have attracting a high quality manager if a change needs to be made.
  6. No wonder Spurs wanted to join a European League that they could not be relegated from. And Kane off in the summer, that solo walk applauding the fans just told everyone what he wants to do.

    Dean Smith

    I agree Grealish is miles off being match fit and he is being played in the vain hope that somehow he will make the difference. I doubt we will get any more points this season and I would much rather Smith tried something different for the last couple of games namely different tactics and formations. We seem to have a Plan A and nothing else.
  8. The game today summed up Villa perfectly this season. We have enough ability in the side to be in the PL but we need a stronger squad, there are too many gaps when players are injured or out of form. Having said that we lose games like today for two reason. We have zero mental strength or resilience and the tactical decisions made by the management are woeful. As some have pointed out Hodgeson saw the problem and fixed it. We saw the problem (I hope!) and did not. Blaming the ref or blaming Palace for being too physical is seeing the symptoms but not the cause. We need to be tougher
  9. I don’t think he will play again this season and personally I’m tired of the BS from the club that he might. Mind you I don’t subscribe to all the conspiracy theories that Twitter and Instagram are awash with
  10. Our biggest problem yesterday was I don’t think we went on the pitch believing we could win. OK we scored first but I just felt the attitude of the players was let’s hang on for as long as we can. That is a bang average Man U side and we were undone by lack of self belief, stupid errors and poor refereeing. Can the players honestly say they made Man U work for those three points? It’s all in their heads, they need to believe in themselves. We need to have more options from the bench too as well as a little more class on the pitch at the start. I’d not think bringing on inexperienced or y
  11. Typical Villa, get a good result and then gift 3 points to comfortably the worst side in the league. If we have any aspirations to be better than a mid table side we have to be much better and much more consistent. I rate Smith and he deserves the job but I do always wonder if he has that little bit of magic to get us to six or four. Against the bottom side playing for over half an hour with ten men we should have battered them. As it is the manager and the players need to hang their heads in shame.
  12. Radical suggestion, let’s wait for any official announcement rather that relying on the sages on Twitter. Not saying their wrong but seemingly they are being treated as gospel.
  13. Sadly this was DS being outsmarted by a much more experienced PL manager who had done his homework. (much as I dont rate Moyes). Schoolboy error to persist with the same tired players who luckily won at the weekend albeit I accept we should have won the Burnley game. We need to rotate players and have the likes of Barclay available to bring on and not expect them to tear up trees every game. Hving those sort of players on the bench is a Plan B.
  14. I can't see us touching Arsenal based on tonight. Players look tired and devoid of ideas.
