    Dean Smith

    Same...... I am finding it really hard to stop thinking just that myself. I accept that we maybe ahead of schedule in the eyes of the board, but relegation would almost certainly put us back a year. I am starting to think the same I did towards the end of the Bruce tenure, no quality, no threat, no improvement but more importantly no identity. Deano seems to have gone against all his beliefs... We sold out season tickets on the promise of a brand of football.... it’s no where to be seen at the moment... with absolutely no sign of it coming back.
  2. He wouldn’t be on my list of strikers to get in, however if he comes at a decent price...along with another young and hungry striker It could be a master stroke... I have no idea what kinda price he would come for but anything around the 5m mark Give him the 20 shirt....and I think it could be worth a gamble, the spark he needs to end his career on a high. But it’s just that... a gamble! Buts it’s not my money so **** it let’s get him.

    I just wonder as a Villa fan does dean smith want himself gone?

    Dean Smith

    Exactly.... And I think the black and white of it is if he wasn’t a villa fan I’d want him gone.

    Dean Smith

    Exactly what I thought!! I remember his earlier post match interviews when he used to say things like “we didnt set the traps we talked about” .... “they played between our lines to easily” .... “we didn’t move the ball quick enough”.... or words to that effect. It’s worrying that he is using officiating for excuses for conceding. I don’t think the ref was at fault for the final two goals personally. I have said elsewhere...I don’t want smith to be sacked, but I really don’t know what to say anymore. Throwing more money at this team in January is not going to make any difference without a change of direction and tactics. We are too reliant on Jack (which I believe is stopping us playing). No threat upfront, we don’t move the ball quick enough and at the moment we are certain to go down there is no doubt about it. The board have to ask the question if they are happy to go down and rebuild? which I doubt. Or do we want to maintain premier league football?! If so some serious changes and questions need to be asked. The last few games (Norwich included) have shown no promise, we haven’t been unlucky, we have been poor....period! Even with Mings and Mcginn I believe they would have had no influence on the results. I don’t want to say getting rid of smith is the answer as I so badly want him to succeed as do most Villa fans I’m sure.... But I’m starting to wonder if thanking Deano for a great year or so and getting us back to where we belong and moving forward without him is the right thing to do. I’m not saying we should.... but I have never been so torn with a manager.
  6. With you mate, at the moment he does. I’m hoping it’s just a massive dip in form.
  7. I love the guy.. I do... but He has got away with murder to be fair the last half dozen games at least. Ineffective! 10/10 for effort but he hasn’t been a patch on last season. It annoys me when I hear pundits sing his praises, they obviously have not seen him this season. Needs dropping and is part of the reason for our bad form of late. I want the old SJM back.

    Wesley Moraes

    I was dreading him getting subbed to sarcastic cheers today.... I think he needs to be dropped somehow (No idea how) pretty soon to avoid this happening as what little confidence he does have will be sapped.

    Wesley Moraes

    He has shown that he can finish (simple ones but still) he has shown that he can hold up a bring people into play on occasions if he was that bad he wouldn’t have shown it at all..... albeit nowhere near consistently enough obviously. This just really isn’t his level.

    Wesley Moraes

    I honestly think that if hogan had the run of games Wesley has had he would not have done much worse. Thing is I don’t actually think he is that bad a footballer. He just doesn’t do anything... anything. The front 3 of Leicester today shown us how a front 3 should play. Wesley needs some time out of the team... it’s just a real shame we have no options.
  11. That 3rd kit is disgusting... I love it
  12. Whilst I was shocked to see Taylor and Elmo (although not so much) in the starting line up on Saturday, both of them based on that performance should start on Saturday. DS has tried create 2 players competing for every position! What message does it send when a player gives his all, has a good game, plays for his shirt, to get dropped anyway! I know how I would feel. I know that if a player gives his all and is still not good enough it is different.... but by that game against spurs...Taylor does not deserve to get dropped. The same 11 starts for me.
  13. kodjia is gonna score more than Wesley this season.... there i said it.

    Tom Heaton

    I was firmly of the opinion that Steer should be given the shirt and that a keeper was not a priority. But I never realised how much we needed Heaton until yesterday. He just looks to get solid hands to everything.... great debut in not an easy game. Although I’m not sure where this leaves Jed.... I suspect even tho he has signed a contract he may end up on loan again, with a call back option. But Of course I’d love him to be back up.
  15. Engles Impressed me the most today, I thought he looked calm, some good blocks and clever passes out of defence. RBL have some good forwards and we looked like we dealt with them well. Encouraging.
  16. Totally agree, hence saying where we can. With the amount of improvements needed around the ground I would even hazard a guess that they would scrap the idea of redeveloping the North stand and go straight for a new stadium. With England pushing for a World Cup there are ground regulations that Villa park are short of, NFL and Baseball games getting bigger and bigger coverage in the UK and with an American owner with some clout... a new stadium makes sense. Villa park for how dear to our hearts it is, is getting left behind.
  17. True, but let’s see how that waiting list is at the end of this season. Let’s face it we all know how fickle villa fans are, it’s all exciting at the moment and I have no reason to believe that the owners are gonna do anything **** that up anytime soon, but Relegation at this point (although I don’t think that will happen) is still a possibility which could throw us back to square one. I agree with just filling in and making ground improvements and expansions where we can, especially some kind of “fan zones” similar to box park at Wembley would be awesome. Long term I’d love a new stadium personally, keeping the looks and traditions of what we have currently, the rear of the holte is still a sight to behold. After seeing what spurs have done how can any supporter not want a piece of that.
  18. He was really pleased with him self after his own Marvelous player joke. It was as if he has never cracked it before.
  19. My sentiments exactly. Some of the comments I’m reading on some facebook groups are ridiculous. A lot of the comments coming out from villa players tells me he will be missed around the place. Good luck to him.
  20. Yep... I’ve written it on the box. Next to a picture of Andy Murray.
  21. This....this.... is the only thing that 1% scares me. Although the circumstances are different with owners and coaching staff.... my inner dark thoughts of “villa are going all about this all wrong, they are untried at this level and we have seen this before, veretout was so promising....Too many” pops up now and again..... but I’ll lock it in the inner parts of my dark mind along with wanting to nail Andy Murray’s mom... and throw away the key.
  22. Not sure how much longer I can take the Marvellous drops..... it’s only gonna get worse.
  23. I’m kinda with you.... I have neither been impressed or...not impressed. I think partly the problem for me is that Guilbert is the full back we have needed for years and has impressed me...(I know it’s pre season blah blah) and i want Target to be the same on the left. He has looked tidy enough and I have no reason to say that he is naff. I feel the same about Target as I do for the new home shirt. It’s alright.... but it’s growing on me.
  24. De La Cruz!!! Jesus I forgot about him, god he was bang average to be kind. I just looked at his Wiki and it describes him as an Aston Villa fans favorite! I don’t remember that.... I also didn’t remember him signing for blues.
  25. He’s a good looking bloke his mrs is fit, keep.
