  1. Next Aston Villa Manager

    I would walk around with a permanent erection if Olof became manager.
  2. Jordan Amavi

    I highly doubt the board think promotion is highly unlikely after one game. It'll be tough with so many teams capable of beating one another and going on a run but that's completely different.
  3. Callum O'Hare

    He's better than Jobi McAnuff.
  4. Sam Johnstone

    Didn't look like a save you'd expect most keepers to save imo. Just a cheap attempt to get on his case.
  5. Transfer Speculation Summer 2017

    I wish I was as fat as Gabby, Richards or McCormack. Preferably Richards.
  6. Jed Steer

    Maybe an element of the unknown to you. Not to the people who work with him day in, day out.
  7. Ahmed Elmohamady

    Elmo's been excellent so far...
  8. Gabby Agbonlahor

    Looking great so far.
  9. Germany 23rd July

    I seen a video of apparently Villa fans (familes) being attacked by Germans. Hope they're alright.
  10. Alan Hutton

    It's probably because he works his balls off, even if some of that is down to him giving the ball away, after seeing many players just go through the motions for the past few seasons, people will associate and take to someone who gives their all. Another reason he's probably endeared himself to the crowd is because since O'Neils counter attacking exciting football, we've had players who don't want the ball or just look to keep passing it sideways backwards. Hutton actually drives forward with ball and looks to create attacks. The problem half the time is other players don't get involved and he ends up isolated which in turn increases the odds of him losing the ball. I live with a Spurs fan who really liked him and talks of him fondly from his time there. He probably had midfielders who were more forward thinking and helped support him when he drove down the touchline, therefore not just running into a cul-de-sac. He lacks a bit of discipline but if he had more support when he tried to build attacks he wouldn't have to race back so often. Also, when a full back attacks, isn't it customary for the defence to shuffle along so the rcb covers and the holding midfielder can drop back to keep us with a back 4. I see it alot elsewhere but when we do it, we don't seem to offer the same support. It doesn't happen on the left hand side because Taylor doesn't burst with the same power, pace or directness. Plus, Green or Amavi are more willing to help out defensively on the left than Adomah does on the right hand side. I think Hutton and Elmohamady on the right would work pretty well. Against Walsall, Bree have the ball away plenty of times then when I read the player thread afterwards, he was being talked up. I don't get it. If Hutton had played the same I think I'd be reading different comments.

    I know Sunderland are in the dump financially but they've just got parachute payments, a huge earner of the books in Defoe and £30/35m for Pickford. They can't expect him on the cheap. He had one poor season, before that he was banging in 25 a season.
  12. Tommy Elphick

    I don't think he's awful like the majority on here. He captained Bournemouth to the Prem. He just hasn't done it at all in a Villa shirt. I wouldn't be surprised one bit if he moved on and did well again.
  13. Transfer Speculation Summer 2017

    If that was Tim, he'd be holding up a gilet.

    A lot of the potential talent is hoovered up by the big clubs regardless of whether they are good enough or not. They can send them out in loan and let the other clubs do the work for them. If they don't make it then they lose a few million in kids they don't expect anything from. Just one makes the grade and they've effectively more than made their money back. The overhaul of the scouting will take time, I think you're expecting too much, too soon although I would hope we can pluck a few gems. Bjarnason is that sort of gamble. They won't all pay off and I can understand why Bruce is getting assured quality in now. The problem with modern day football is that the likes of Bruce can't plan or build for years like managers used to. Everything has to be right now. Glen Whelan or Kante from Ligue 2. I suspect most managers would have gone with Whelan. Clubs sign players without managers emerge they trust the scouts. That sort of infrastructure will take time to implement and if we do go for that then all future managers will need to understand it.
  15. Glenn Whelan

    Indeed. It's all about balance. I suspect last season with Terry and Whelan we wouldn't have lost so many points in the last 5/10 mins of games.
