    Manchester United

    Loved how they kept (and keep) focusing on the inability to sign 1 or 2 defenders in the summer, like that's their only problem. Forget about the fact that they can't string 3 passes together nor attack with any form of cohesion on a consistent basis.........they just need better defenders apparently. Can't wait to see him sacked, sadly though he'll laugh all the way to the bank.

    Racism in Football

    I think it depends on the situation but I'd suggest that most people would not say something, even if they wanted to. When I had a ST in the lower North for a few years, there was a group of 4 or 5 youngish lads who'd sit behind us, one of them in particular would make racist comments throughout matches. Now as much as it revolted me and as much as I wanted to turn around and say shut up, I'm sitting there with my missus (most of the time) and am I really about to engage in a war with a group of 4/5 lads? No I'm not. I struggle with the validity of a debate around racism in football, racism is an issue in all walks of life, pinpointing sub-cultures and specific events is irrelevant. Once it goes away from society (if it ever does) then it goes away from football whereas I don't think it would work in reverse.

    18/19 Race for Promotion

    In the grand scheme of things you're not wrong but it's a bit of a stretch to claim that Leeds are nationally significant whereas Villa are only a regional concern. I know it wasn't you that wrote that btw.

    Really? Come on man. I don't think any of us 'normal' people could even begin to comprehend what it must be like to be a celebrity these days, to have constant is what it is, and he chose/chooses to do what he does, does that make it okay though?

    Okaaaaaay. Leeds United, insignificant for well over a decade now are nationally more significant than Aston Villa. Why are we inundated with Leeds fans on here? Are we the butt of some kind of joke/trolling that I/we don't get?! I don't care that fans of other clubs post on here, it's a free world (kind of), but let's not forget that they mostly appeared around the time we looked set to run into some serious financial concern in the summer so my own take is that they weren't really here to wish us well, more likely to revel in our pending misery (at the time).

    I see Leeds fans are still obsessed with us then.

    18/19 Race for Promotion

    We will win the division, I've never been more confident of anything with Villa. The way we're making the supposed best sides in this division look very ordinary is beyond impressive. Taking away the fact that the equaliser should never have stood last night, we could easily have been 3 or 4 goals clear at that point. Whilst we have errors in us (comes with the level we're at right now) there's an type of imperiousness to our play that I have not seen for a long long time.
  11. A typical Wetherspoons is kinda weird at the best of times.....
  12. That tit to the front of the queue please. He looks like someone who still thinks Men Behaving Badly is current comedy.

    That's just not accurate mate. It was 4-4 when they had a man sent off. Appreciate the involvement but best to have accurate facts at hand.

    I know right, when was the last time we were this anxious (in a good way) for the games to come round.
