  1. A bit off topic but a monthly optimism gauge for each player on a monthly basis would make interesting reading. would it add a bit of balance to the nonsense on some of the player threads?

    Such a shame to see a sixteen year old child with a tattoo. Illegal for it to be done in the uk unless you are over 18. Perhaps he had it done in Spain. I hope that he receives a lot of guidance and support from the club so that he becomes a role model for those less gifted and makes better choices than other young millionaire teenagers have in the past. In fact quite a few connected to our club. On the footballing front I hope he fulfils the talent he obviously has and wish him all the best.
  3. Went to the Walsall V Carlisle game and saw Mckirdy play. He was very influential. Always looked dangerous and likely to beat a man. He was brought down after breaking through leading to a sending off and scored the winning goal with a looping header in extra time to win the match. I think he’s capable of playing at a higher standard.

    Made a couple of bad mistakes but I still thought he was immense and battled for every ball against tough opponents. His distribution gives us options with long balls we haven’t always had.
  5. Not quite there yet, but yesterday was a tough one and I think he and El ghazi both battled hard with litttle success. Thought his assist was magnificent. He hadn’t given it up as the Wednesday defender had and that attitude will serve him well.
  6. Watched this in amongst the home fans with my friend who lives in Sheffield and is a Wednesday season ticket holder. I and they thought the Villa support was fantastic. Wednesday were a tough team to beat and I would have been delighted to have drawn 1-1. i thought the injuries played a big part in this game. If Hause had not gone off I don’t think we would have given them so many second half chances and if Bannan hadn’t gone off we may not have got up the field so well at the end. This was the first game I’ve seen live since our run started and was really impressed with the strength in central defence, the energy of McGinn and the overall work rate of the team. Some of the fear has gone and players have started to play balls into forward spaces rather than pass sideways. we now also have a lot of players who can score goals for us. good game to watch and the right result

  8. Some really useful spreadsheets on this topic. Can we have them posted on the main site? It would be Interesting to see what actually happens in the next 6 matches to all the sides. I’m a spreadsheet nut too! Maybe we should get out more?

    Come on man. This is a fan forum. Where are the four letter words? Where are the inarticulate ravings? Are you still sober? This is far too erudite! Any more like this and I will report the post!
  10. I think his work rate and speed at closing down defenders was very valuable. At this level putting defenders under pressure causes them to make mistakes and turn over possession. I don’t see us pressing and getting the ball back as quickly lately. We give the opposition too much time and space. Our slow build up play and poor passing usually sideways didn’t help him. we now have lots of forwards who have all to play for. can’t wait to see who takes their opportunities.
  11. I threw the cabbage! oh and I am Spartacus!
  12. I am viewing vt on an iPad and keep getting hijacked by this site. I have done the usual deleting of safari history to no avail. This only happens on VT. This may not be a site issue but can anyone help please.
  13. I think we may well have seen two of the teams to be relegated this season here today. For us there were some positives. the defense looked better and more organised, the team are fighting for the ball more and tracking back better (well they hardly used to at all). some individuals look to have promise albeit they will have to show it off in the championship next year, or go elsewhere. however, nobody on the wings trying to take on the full backs, too many sideways balls, no attacking force, nobody making runs. At this stage and in the position we are in just not good enough.
  14. Just an observation about the comparisons on here with Fellani and Pelle. Yes it would be good to have players of that calibre and we should have them but it's unfair to compare a guy from Cardiff City and Blackburn Rovers who has just stepped up to the premiership with a team who were consistently battling relegation even before we lost arguably our three best players with these two guys. Pelle played for Palma and Samapadoria before playing 48 games for Southampton in the Premiership. Fellani has played 140 odd games for Everton and 48 for Man. U surrounded by good players. he has getting on for 100 international caps. he cost 27 million quid! Gestede has a lot to learn and like many of Villa's signings is a player who may, or may not make it. He has been thrown in at the deep end!
