  1. Over the years we have sack managers in october. Well is it not just bad timing? Why should we not sack hopeless manager in march/april, and give the new manager time to build up next season. If we sack in october the new manager has the current player and cannot sell or buy new one. Sherwood, Matteo and Bruce got sacked in october. Well Remi Garde was problably special case. I am not sure sacking Smith is a solution for the moment. But if we sack him we should do it in april. If we will give him a chance, than we should give him next season and make a decision april 2020
  2. Does anyone still believe, SB is the man? lol.
  3. Henry is maybe to much risk. Ranieri, if possible, would be a good choice.
  4. It does not. Can I lock this thread or need someone who is admin?
  5. Totally agree. This not only important, it is simply vital and crucial.
  6. Ok, I admit it. I am not Steve Bruce fan. But in Bruce I do not believe. Who could be our next manager? Here is one list. Some of them will never come, are too big. We have to think big, but be realistic at same time. Some of you want Sam Allardyce, I do not think he is our best choice. This is at least my list, as stupid as it is. But it is not that bad I put Bruce on it I would check Martin Schmidt. He is experienced both by VFL and also Mainz 05. He was promoted from Mainz 05 II to Mainz 05. He is at good age, and want definitely greater carrier. He is my first
  7. I see it now. No need to has same subject in two threads. I agree this thread should lock.

  9. Finally more and more people are beginning to admit Birkir can do something. Snodgrass, Grealish and Birkir were best against Forest. Why was Birkir performing better now than before? Two reason, firstly he got 45 minutes not just shitty 5 or 15 minutes. Secondly it is pretty clear he is leaving the club. He needs to play more as preparation for World Cup. Birkir played safe against Forest. But he is not DM he should play more attacking. In this forum some people are maintaining that Birkir might be good for Seria A team but not for Aston Villa. Does someone believes that second d
  10. I think it is totally SB faults if BB leaves. BB came from Ch. L team and why he was bought is beyond my understanding. You do not buy this kind of player just to fill the squad. Second BB has all chances to play at world cup. If SB do not see the opportunity in that situation he is worse manager than I thought. But it seems to be that my oppinion is in minority by the fans. Well I can not see that we will get promoted. Maybe SJ sees that too and is willing to go. Maybe the reason is something else. But I believe decision like that is some kind of aggrement. SJ has something
  11. It is not ideal for AV if he will leave. But if his role is to sit on the bench he has no reason to stay. He needs to be fit for world cup. Seria A would be great for him. I hope we will not loose Johnstone as well. If we loose both of them SB can leave the club. I cannot see SB will get us promoted. But I really hope I will be wrong.

    John Terry

    He is legend. He has won almost everthing and why should he play for Villa? Maybe, this is his chance to promote. If we will win the league, he will be the king. His legacy will belong to Chelsea but also to Aston Villa. Why should he choose Birmingham? No chance to promotion. Why Swansea? Nothing to achive except avoiding relegation. Terry is a winner and avoiding relegation is not exciting. We are not playing in Premier League, so we need not Chelsea top class player. Ok, he is not as fit as before but still he is great. Ok, maybe he cannot play 46 games, but can he play 30 g
  13. Send Johnstone back. We need someone else.
  14. I think it is more like 1000000000000000000000 times better. Bjarnason can open a gate and hopefully also the gate to PL.
  15. Who is Birkir? Sampdoria Iceland vs. Portugal France - Iceland 7:20min Kazakhstan vs. Iceland Skills and goals
  16. Don't worry he will contribute huge to Villa. If the rumour is correct, Bjarnason is definitely our best signing this season.
  17. In style - Yes it is good comparison. But Ljungberg was definitely class higher.
  18. Signing Birkir Bjarnason would be great. But is it a gossip or true?
  19. First, I heard about roumor about Ashley Young, and now Yoyo Toure, source Sportrelated.net. I don't take this seriously.
  20. Reykjavik, Iceland Valur It was probably 1978. I visited Villa Park with my son, spring 2009. We are not many Villa fans in Iceland.
  21. Now we are talking about fundamentals. I do not have the right answers. But what makes Wales a better team than England? Is the answer "Wales players know what to do inside out" ? Why and how do they know it? What is different? Mentally, structure....? The answer (now) is not 4-4-2 or 3-5-2. But it lead you there, in the end. Yes it is a lottery at that age. You have to focus on youth. Not because you want title at that age. You have to focus on youth because you want win Europe Cup or World Cup later. If you have good youth team it is more likely that the s
  22. Yes, England need to go back to basics. Is the answer 4-4-2, 4-3-3 or something else. No you need to go much deeper. Back to fundamental. Spain was pain, but suddenly the are one of the best. German had problem around 2000, now they are number one. What happened? How do you build up a good team? Do you start from professional players or from age of 5, 8, 15 ? You have to answer questions like, is the framework excellent? What about attitude and support by the FA, players and fans? How is your structure? How is your support to girls and women? Str
  23. English players believe they are number one. Icelandic fans believe England is very good. Other nations knows the statistics and knows that England is not one of the best team, and probably has not been last decades. If we groups nations by strength, five nations in each category. You have to accept, England is not A class footballnation. England is probably one of best of B class nation. Iceland is definately not A or B class, maybe by now but not generally. What is the problem in England? Overestemated, both players but specially managers. Why do you choose a
  24. If you want consider some of icelandic players, I would go for defender Ragnar Sigurdsson, age of 30, playing for Krasnodar, Russia. Krasnodar plays in EUFA europa league. Maybe he is not realistic choice. But what about other defender Kari Arnarson age of 33, playing for Gothenburg in Sweden. He could be good choice for 1-2 years. https://www.google.is/?gws_rd=cr,ssl&ei=WXxyV76sAp30gAbEqbHQAw#q=kári+árnason https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ragnar_Sigurðsson But whynot midfielder Aron Gunnarsson, plays for Cardiff. He is underestimated. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aron_Gunnarsso
  25. We were saying this at the end of McLeish season "there's no one else who could do a worse job than this." Well we signed a bloke who on the face of it did a brilliant job at Norwich and after two years of relegation battles we're now scoring even less than a McLeish team which is frankly incredible. If their is a worse manager out there, this board will probably appoint him. We definately need to get rid of Lambert. But Lerner is probably main problem, he has the money. with current board we are doomed, and will end in bottom three. Maybe the worst think that coul
