  1. Steve Bruce

    I'm as concerned as the next person with the pre-season performances. It's hasn't been good enough. But criticising Bruce for playing a DM is a bit silly. All players need to play and get their match fitness up. It doesn't matter who we play, that's what pre-season is for. I don't think this can be used as a stick to beat Bruce with.

    Excellent standard of posting from everyone involved today. I've been laughing on/off all day!
  3. Transfer Speculation Summer 2017

    No, not good enough to be in a Villa shirt. Bruce doesn't know how to get the best out of him.
  4. Transfer Speculation Summer 2017

    Looks to me like Elmo and Whelan are done. There is another player (1 of 3) set to join who I'd guess hasn't been named yet. Also, looking like a swap deal somewhere. Who or what though is a mystery. Plenty of players going to other way though, so positive signs.
  5. Ahmed Elmohamady

    Bit of an over-reaction. How happy were people when we signed all those French lads? And last summer when we signed a number of talented players. Maybe, just maybe, solid but uninspiring are just what we need to solidify the squad and give chance to bring out the best in other players. Of course, I may be talking complete and utter nonsense, we won't know until the season kicks off. But things, as proven by previous transfer windows, aren't always likely to go to plan or the way you think! Let's give it a chance at least. take Brighton last year, signed Glenn Murray and Steve sidwell as their main 2 signings. Very uninspiring but helped solidify the squad (which was already good) and they went up with ease. Just using this as an example.

    Is will Hughes for Huddlestone a sign of strengthening? I'm not so sure. Agree with Hull though, could be a bit of a slog for them.
  7. Steve Bruce

    Not necessarily an individual performance against hull, but let's says if performances are no good after 3/4 then I think a lot of the 'on the fencers' (myself included) will come down on the 'out' side. Then the pressure may increase and we will really see what Bruce is made of then.

    I'll be a part of this bet, I'm not fussy xxxx
  9. Sam Johnstone

    Welcome Sam. Lets hope you can progress nicely this season. I'm sure there will be a permanent move if you do!

    Hi @Grasshopper, just before you start slagging me off for being patronising and arrogant, this last sentence is you stating your opinion as a fact. Didn't take me long to find it and I know there are more examples.
  11. Transfer Speculation Summer 2017

    Another opinion being treated as a fact. Who gives a **** about bastard Brentford.
  12. Transfer Speculation Summer 2017

    The thing with your 'opinion' is that it has been expressed as fact too many times to take seriously now. But, Let's employ Warnock then shall we? How well would that go down? How often does changing a manager every 5 minutes actually do good for a club? What happens if we appoint a new manager and then they fail? We are back to bloody square one. We actuallly have a manager who has steadied the ship, it wasn't wonderful, it was steady. Let said manager finish the job, if We aren't near the top or top with a year, 2 transfer windows and lots of time to get this together then let him go. Then, because when Bruce took over you all expected him to get us up/playoffs in the same amount of time, the new manager that you want and clearly will get us up straight away will have lots of time to get us up and do just that. I want us to start the season like a house on fire, genuinely, just to see some tails between legs. It shouldn't be for that reason I want us to start so well, but this constant crap in here and every single thread on VT has kind of forced that upon me!
  13. Transfer Speculation Summer 2017

    Apply for the job 'WHEN' it becomes available. I'd love to see you, as an armchair manager, take us to the top. The way you bang on, Id expect champions league qualification in 3 years.

    I'm not surprised

    Certainly a buzz around them.
