    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!

    Scott Hogan

    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.

    Hijack by nationalconsumerscentre.co.uk

    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.

    Rudy Gestede

    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!

    Leandro Bacuna

    I was surprised by the team selection yesterday which put him and Hutton in the side together, but could see the logic of it and I thought it worked a lot better than whatever is going on on the left of our defence/midfield. I think he deserves his place in the team albeit that our midfield looks quite lightweight and needs more strength in the centre defensive position.

    Gabby Agbonlahor

    On a couple of occasions yesterday we saw flashes of what Gabby can do. One of them led to a rare shot at goal and the other the goal. The trouble yesterday wais that because of age or fitness he was off the pace of the game and didn't contribute enough. I wasn't sure what his role was to be honest and saw him playing very deep and not supporting Gestede or Ayew who like it or not are the future fore us. There may be a role for him as a sub, or in a different formation but he didn't fit in yesterday.

    Jack Grealish

    Guy is clearly a talent on the ball. He will of course not be staying with us long and while he is here he is vital to us. He still has lots to learn. I thought yesterday he often slowed up play by not releasing the ball early enough and not playing with his head up. i was surprised at how forward he was played yesterday but thought he pressed well and got involved. Did well for the goal.

    Rudy Gestede

    I thought he did well yesterday. He put himself about got plenty of headed flick ons but didn't have anyone near him or running off him and there weren't enough crosses from wide. In a poor side the cf is always going to look ineffective. Look at Benteke for most of last year. He may or may not be able to be a star player at this level in the future, I don't know, but for a bottom side fighting relegation he is ok and he is probably one of the least of our problems.

    Where is Villa's institutional memory?

    I went on a Villa Park tour earlier this year and it was clear to me that the message which the PR gurus had sold to the owners were: villa are a heritage brand We are European Cup Winners To which they add 'part of and contributing to our local community' spin. Each of us will have our own memories usually formed in our youth of what the Club means to us. A shared loyalty to 'the shirt' and the tingle down the back of the neck I get walking past Aston Hall and see the floodlights does it for me.

    hi

    I first supported Villa when the team was in division 3. I recall walking to the ground from the city centre down the expressway while it was being built. my heroes were Charlie Aitken,Bruce Rioch, Ray Graydon, Dennis Mortimer, John Gidman, David Platt, Brian Little, Andy Gray and many more. Then real life took over and fast forward to last season when I took my son to his first match. it had to be Villa Park and it was the cup match against Bournmouth. so here I am.
