  1. How did that go? Doing one this Saturday, as we were meant to going to one this weekend. Not at all comfortable if doing video calls, but had an interview yesterday and the stag on Saturday. Anyway back on topic. Since I moved out of Bath the amount I spend on a load of random beers has massively reduced. So i'm limited to what the supermarkets have. It was a Friday after work ritual plus the odd other day, even if I was working the weekend.
  2. Member with 5 games who missed out should check website at the moment. I haven't got the 5 but it keeps changing from coming soon back to sold out, which would indicate that are few are going for sale but they've held eligibility at 5 games.
  3. My ticket is still available, free to a good home.
  4. I've got a ticket available if someone wants it. My great Uncle died yesterday, so on a flight to Ireland later for the funeral in the morning. Its Lower Holte L5 at the back. Its a student ticket, but I've never actually been questioned so if your not a student, risk it up upgrade. It's an E-ticket so can forward ticket.
  5. Like Tottenham, I came away from the game pretty positive. Which obviously can't keep going on like that without us getting points but I liked a lot of how we played. I thought Douglas Luiz looked like he's got an enormous amount of quality and potential. A bad error bit grew into the game loads. Wesley again showing potential, without losing to much of a goal threat but had limited supply. El Ghazi I thought had a poor game, which doesn't worry me too much, as wingers especially can have off games. I also thought a big part of the problem is Taylor behind him offers nothing in assistance offensively compared with Elmo and Trezeguet the other side. I'd personally get Targett in asap. It would be nice to see Guilbert too, but I'm less concerned about Elmo. I also like Trezeguet and think he could be really good. Lost the ball a few times but asking as it's in the right part of the pitch and not leaving to much space behind. I'd rather a winger that tries things but doesn't always come off, than keep it safe. Which was sometimes an issue with Adomah & Green. Grealish has seemed to have got a lot of over the top criticism on social media too. Thought McGinn, Mings and Engels all played well. Let's get a couple of wins under our belt and I think we can put on a good show in the league.
  6. Wasn't it Harry Arter a couple of years ago who shouted leave it for Bournemouth a couple of years ago against Palace. Maybe similar happened. A silly place to leave the ball anyway and we got punished.
  7. I decided when she was born, I wasn't going to push Villa on my little girl, so haven't bought her any clothing and stuff. If she wants to like football and Villa then I'll let it happen naturally. A tough one possibly though, living in Wiltshire. Well I say that, I have subtly being planting the seed. I've made sure she likes lions and she started roaring when she sees the badge. The last couple of nights she has gone to bed with a blanket with the badge on and has added to her very limited vocabulary and said "Villa" Looks like that seed is starting to grow

    Tom Heaton

    I'm not particularly against getting Heaton but I think the days of a keeper being in their prime early to mid 30s has gone, and there are very few keepers that stay at the top of their game a few years beyond that. The fitness, reactions, speed etc are so finely tuned now that using their experience like keepers previously is less of such a big factor in a keepers success.
  9. Yeah, my guess he's see the Heaton talk yesterday and made up the medical thinking it might coincide with Villa completing the deal to 'prove' his ITK credentials.
  10. They apparently wanted £15m for him back in Jan according to Laurie Whitwell (not sure how reliable he is?) So given how he did for us, it's not surprising they raised that.
  11. At the price quoted it is a bit overpriced even in the current market, in that we could probably got someone a similar ability for less, BUT it's more than his ability, we need the spine of the team from last season to go in to the coming season to give some continuity. Ultimately Bournemouth knew this aswell as Smith and the owners, hence why they have been able to command a high fee.
  12. This was what Graeme Bailey said, which led to the made up £55m bid.
  13. Yes but that's pretty much the same for those actually with information and those who make it up.
  14. It was Tuesday according this account which may well be the old medical guy.
  15. Didn't they have another poorly attended protest march a few years back and got lost?
