    As long as it’s Alex and not Darren.
  3. It’s good that we are now discussing plans to get around ffp, whereas less than 12 months ago we were desperately worried about the very existence of Aston Villa. Whilst I think someone would have eventually come in to save the club, we have quite definitely fallen on our feet. Proving once and for all, God is definitely a Villa fan.

    Whilst I think you’re probably right about the first three, I think McGinn will stay even if we’re still in the Championship. The way he spoke immediately after the penalty shootout came across as if he’d been here for years and wants to be for years to come. I think the club has got inside him, just as it has for many players over the years. And why wouldn’t it? It’s the greatest club the world has ever seen.

    I don’t think that’s necessarily true. They were well organised to carry out their game plan, which was very simple, sit deep, defend in numbers and hope for a mistake. They got their wish, particularly in the first leg, which made their plan even more attractive to them. It’s always easier to look committed when defending than when trying to be creative and break teams down. Even at home and with the scores over both legs level they still didn’t attack us, except on the break. I thought once down to 10 men they might have a go for the last 10 mins to avoid playing another 30 mins a man down, but they defended even deeper I’m not knocking The Albion as the plan almost worked, but I think we were as committed as them but perhaps it didn’t always come across. We were certainly the only team committed to playing with any attacking intent. I also think if the ref had done his job properly, a lot of Albion’s “commitment”, would have been rewarded with cards, which would have ended in them being reduced to 10 men earlier or us being fouled less and creating more from open play.
  6. Then of course there’s the player so good they named him twice, the legend that is Eric Djemba Djemba.
  7. I think this is a great anthem and this is the best I’ve heard it. As you say goosebumps, the greatest stand in football at it’s finest. I’d disagree with you about Holte Enders In The Sky though. There have been times when a lot of us have stood and sung this with extremely moist eyes, it has the ability to grab your emotions. Having said that Alez seems at times to get inside you, to capture your Villa soul. I’ve wished for a proper Villa anthem for as long as I can remember, and now we have one. Not sure who’s responsible, but hats off to them.
  8. If you get up to the Highlands for that “little drink”, I’m definitely not driving!
  9. You clearly didn’t get the memo! Now repeat after me, “He’s slow, can’t tackle, can’t pass and he’s not PL level.”

    I’m sorry I seem to have lost my way, I’m looking for the Scott Hogan thread....
  11. No but there’s an optional riding crop, for those that enjoy extra curricular activities of a certain nature....
  12. With at least a splash of claret I’d like to think old chap?
