    Tyrone Mings

    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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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

    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!

    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.

  9. 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!
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  15. 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.
