  1. Match Thread: Newcastle v Villa

    Just go with 4132 as opposed to the 451 we have tried. On paper it looks 433 but it wasn't. Hour I have is capable of playing wider and it should bring Thor into it a little. Would give Hogan much needed support
  2. Match Thread: Newcastle v Villa

    Goal ratio of shots on target to goals against at the moment is bloody scary Barnsley 3 from 4. Ipswich 1 from 1 and Newcastle the bloody same tonight.... Come on lads let's surprise even ourselves with an actual comeback
  3. Prematch Thread

    Hmm will I be able to stomach the 2nd half or will the missus win out and we will watch the last instalment of The Halcyon???

    Whilst scary from the outside I do wonder if they are looking at different aspects. The playing side wage bill will be the vast majority but if you take in everyone employed by AVFC then the numbers would look a little better. Where The Doc refers to us as "1 firm" it infers to me he will look at total bills.

    All dayers in Locarno because we weren't old enough to go Wigan or Torch.
  6. Media and punditry

    Caught about 15 mins of the beeb red button coverage and two things stick in my mind: A goal went in and the at ground pundit said: "It was a good kick. With his left foot." and that was it Then at HT in the Huddersfield ,v Citeh match Dion came out with the astounding piece of punditry: "Huddersfield will think they are still in this". IT WAS GOALLESS OF COURSE THEY WOULD YOU MUPPET

    Not really @BOF to me it says they are more likely to lose at home and given that the presure we as fans are putting onour players at VP I actually think we could get something up there in Scotland
  8. Ratings and Reactions: Villa v Barnsley

    Sorry but on this I have to disagree. Penalty was at what is called 'the perfect height for keepers' and he was nowhere near it 2nd goal - he went down in stages 3rd goal - again too slow to react That save from the free kick was unnecessary as his hand/arm were well above the bar and he should know that His throws were good I'll give him that and he should do it more often. His kicking is atrocious, though to be fair he could be deadeye accurate and the lack of aerail presence would mean we lose it anyway.

    I'd go with this BOF, last night we were fine until that shocking decision to gift them a lead. We didn't deserve to be behind at HT and I thought 4231 was showing igns of being a decent formation - even if I personally wouldn't have chosen it - then we went 442 and lost our way. Another team came and took their chances, whilst in the last two games we've had 44 'attempts' and scored only one. Before Xmas we weren't creating and were conceding so things have moved on ...

    You're not out with him tonight instead of coming with us are ya
  11. Pre-match thread

    So today I am the manager and I'm selecting Bunn Elphick Chester Baker Bacuna Thor Lansbury Hourihane Amavi Hogan Kodjia Subs: Loanee / Hutton / Taylor / Grealish / RHM / Green / Adomah Without Bree and Jedi I think it's pretty much as good to push for a win as we have and also shows that this squad is better than it is perfroming and without doubt questions need to be raised about that should it continue. Calderwood ..... I'm looking firmly in your direction
  12. Pre-match thread

    We have got a spare ticket for the Lower Holte if anyone wants it, drop me a message on here, or twitter @Allan_LV
  13. Pre-match thread

    Think I've still got your number.
  14. Pre-match thread

    With no Jedi I think it'll be 352 again so I'd like to see same as Saturday with Amavi in for Taylor. If we constantly make changes we wil not get anywhere and the players will not have a clue. If it isn't working we can take off a CB and stick Jack on for a little more creativity. Should we want to stick a 442 in then, and only then, would I pick Taylor who looked like a player asked to play a comepletely new game on Saturday. And without Lansbury holding as he is too slow to turn and is easily beaten one on one, hence the numer of times he gets booked or gives away free kicks pulling the opposition player back
  15. Pre-match thread

    Am taking wife out tonight as it's cheaper anyway and will be down with Aston, might see you there as I think it will be our lowest crowd of season so far
