  1. When anyone is different to the norm then names and labels will be dished out, fatty , speccie, baldy the list goes on and on. In a large majority of cases i suspect its ignorance rather than racism thats got a lot to do with name calling, although human nature does a liking for bullying and general nastiness. The real issues start with institutionalised racism which is clearly a problem in the UK and needs to be addressed. We shouldn't forget there is also a very strong. class system in the UK that stops progression for everyone who's from the lower classes whether they are brown , black, Chinese or white. Ex Eton school boys in government as MDs , high police ranks, armed forces the BBC the list goes on and on and its not just Eton either .Take the BBC, its full of upper and middle class workers , presenters who are there because there Daddy was . I cant bring myself to watch these old white middle class people who have nothing in common with 95% of their paying customers. The debate needs to be widened even if its uncomfortable to the ruling classes.
  2. Looking like we're down. We need to build for next season by getting in a more successful scouting team , one thats proven in the championship and league one. We need two new wide players, a holding midfielder and thats before anyone moves on. If we dont prepare now other teams will and we end up chasing our arse trying to rebuild from the back of the que Large parts of this team will not compete championship style .
  3. Their never gonna out bid Man U and Man U aint gonna out bid Man City.............

    Who would we have left that is any good? Douglas , who's been good since lockdown ended but was unreliable before. I just cant see this squad having the character or talent to compete in the championship . Plus there would be a long que of players wanting to jump ship , Douglas would be one of them , Heaton. Engels has been treated badly , Trez, Elgahzi. Davies looks our most useful striker atm. £100m will cover wages and ffp rules, there would be no spending to that extent.

    As it stands today , without Grealish , we just dont have the squad to come back up, maybe midtable. The weakness we have in the premier league would be further exposed in the championship, our lack of confidence and willingness to fight tooth and nail for each other and every point is a weakness that would transcend leagues.

    Without him we would have been relegated by now, thats for sure. The squad is weak in all areas, we started the season with one fit striker who had never played in England . Without Grealish we would be a terrible team to watch and if I'm honest it would take quite a lot for me to be motivated enough to jump on board a Villa without Grealish fighting for promotion.
  7. Its alright living in the sticks while you are healthy and wealthy and or public services are funded reasonably well. The first bus services doctors, dentists, shops to go will be the ones that havent got a viable business and they are the ones in remote areas. Its best to wait this out and see how things go before making any moves imo. Rentals prices in my area , B36, appear to be rising but its to early to say if this is a short term blip or a demand led increase.
  8. We looked better than we have since lockdown ended but we lacked the final early ball. Yet again set pieces were hopeless, why cant we work on this in training and devise 4 or 5 systems to work from these positions were the players know whats expected of them and who's taking the free kicks from the various sides and angles. Its embarrassing.
  9. I think he will do well given playing time and a permanent club. I have feeling in 4 years time we will want him back

  11. It would shock Gomez that's for sure. However Trez should be a sub ahead of jota for me.

    Played better when Davies came on, we need to start two up, Davies and Samatta . Grealish really started to influence the game in the right area of the pitch. I just hope Smith see this and changes the starting line up

    Its going to be a pivotal game tonight , Newcastle should have their confidence up and we will surrender ground and sit deep allowing them to grow. I really do fear every game now, if we concede early we are almost guaranteed to ship loads of goals . You can see this fear in the players, a nervousness that ends in desperate performances. Maybe some physiological coaching would help, they need to lose their fear and start to play to their maximum ability , were not seeing that now and thats why its so frustrating

    Its ok managing a club when their winning more games than they are losing and competing at the top of the division. If Leeds's are promoted and they start to lose games and drop down into the relegation zone ....only then we will know how good Bielsa is as a manager. The way they appear to fail when the pressure is on doesn't bode well despite them playing arguably the best football i have seen in the championship over the last 2 seasons. Its when things go wrong a good manager shows his worth.

    Dean Smith

    Your right, hes not been a disaster, hes been a good manager....... but something has been wrong with us since xmas and thats led to some disastrous performances. I cant see him turning this around , once the players dont care about upsetting the manager then its over , theres no coming back from it. You cant build respect once its gone, not in a group of players or any team in a reasonable amount of time to turn us around in time to compete in the championship next season, let alone this season . Its not easy for us to say no thanks Dean, he is one of our own and always will be but the club is bigger than that and it takes difficult decisions to build success .

    Dean Smith

    No, he's a disaster because his team can't even be organised enough to take affective throw ins, free kicks or corners. Basic training ground stuff.

    Douglas Luiz

    I don't think many of the players are good enough or more importantly have the heart for the fight required in the championship. We need to build a team thats mentally strong enough to give everything they have rather than 70% when their in the mood. We have to prepare for relegation now so we hit the ground running next season. We cant afford to stagger into the championship with this bunch of losers minus one of the best players i have seen in a villa shirt .

    This , we are getting worse . Its reminds me of when we went down. Something is missing from the team, i think its character is all wrong , we have too many players who just don't care enough to bust a gut, they have given up .

    Not sure what to say about Smith atm, if we cant get throw ins and free kicks consistent then im afraid coaching has to take some of the blame.
  20. 3-0 loss, chelsea will be one of the teams that benefit the most from this project restart format im afraid

    Nothing, Smith should have left them both on the pitch and gone for the win. Sheffield were there for the taking and we blew our lines. One of the most frustrating things for me is our thrown ins, we turn over possession every single time . Why aren't the coaching staff doing something about this?
  22. Davies causing them issues , their panicking when the balls played into him
  23. Davies hatrick , villa 3-1
  24. Davies being a great prospect takes nothing away from Green. Green......looking back at Albrighton's villa career, a great loss and big mistake from us, and i see similar circumstances unfolding. Work ethic goes along way in football, far further than flair in 99.9% of players .
  25. I don't think it is and their fall from grace will start with a loss to us.
