  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. This was what Graeme Bailey said, which led to the made up £55m bid.
  9. Yes but that's pretty much the same for those actually with information and those who make it up.
  10. It was Tuesday according this account which may well be the old medical guy.
  11. Didn't they have another poorly attended protest march a few years back and got lost?
  12. As I said above, I suspect the one I mentioned is him. I guess we'll find out over the coming weeks. However if someone had spoke to me at work, I'd steer clear of doing anything, rather than come back but being careful about what I say. So who knows if it is him, for now.
  13. There's been a few, one was a fake but believe this is him. Not sure if that's the one you are on about? https://twitter.com/AVFCTransfers1 It has been retweeted and commented on by someone in that band The Brazen that he plugged now and then so looks like it is him. He has said bits since coming back but has also said it won't be like before, so there won't be any leaking of players as such but possibly confirming and denying.

    John Terry

    He probably turned down an approach too!
  15. I don't think he would be free out of contract, would he? He's under 24, so as long as Man Utd offered him a new contract, if he rejected it and wanted to go elsewhere there would be compensation.
