  1. Trezeguet's banned for his double yellow isn't he? Hopefully El Ghazi will show us what we know he can do.
  2. I wonder what the trains are going to be like back to Brum afterwards? Haven't been down on a night for a while, but it's bad enough on Saturdays. First game of the season for me, and really excited; although slightly nervous!

    I this short article on Under A Gas Lit Lamp gives a good overview of why the chant is problematic. Ezri Konsa’s Leipzig Chant Should Not Grace the Premier League
  4. Only on the red button though, right?
  5. Yes, seems shin splints is just an old tern for MTSS (Medial tibial stress syndrome); unless I'm missing something. Although I certainly accept that MTSS is poorly defined, I don't think it's just "a collective term for lower leg pain", but may be more accurate as a colloquial term for a widespread pain in the shin. "Medial tibial stress syndrome (MTSS) is an enigmatic condition with confusing terminology, the term often being used interchangeably with shin splints. It is suggested that MTSS and shin splints be used as generic rather than diagnostic terms. On account of variable definitions, the reported incidence rate varies from 4 to 35% in military and athletic populations. Broadly, it represents exertional lower leg pain centred on the posteromedial tibial border and being diffuse/linear (greater than 5 cm) rather than focal. Presentations of acute shin splints should be regarded as bone stress injuries until proven otherwise and not treated as periostitis with anti-inflammatory modalities/drugs. Chronic presentations are more likely in females, those with a running history less than 5 years, increased body mass index, larger calf girth*, increased hip rotation, standing foot pronation and a history of orthotics use, MTSS or stress fracture. Muscle hernia, stress fracture and chronic exertional compartment syndrome should be ruled out. The differential diagnosis also includes radiculopathy, nerve entrapment syndromes and the possibility of an accessory muscle should not be overlooked. There are few randomised controlled trials (RCTs) that have studied treatment and prevention and those available suggest that rest is probably as beneficial as any other form of intervention. Prevention may be afforded by either shock absorbing insoles or more formal orthotics. The pathophysiology would seem to be related to diffuse bone stress with resultant periostalgia. Thus rest and the possible use of compressive splints are advised with a graduated return to running activities once risk factors have been addressed." https://bjsm.bmj.com/content/45/2/e2.31 * "Chronic presentations are more likely in ... those with larger calf girth"
  6. I think you're wrong,. Shin splints is not "just a collective term for lower leg pain" https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/shin-splints/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shin_splints#Diagnosis
  7. Can we even register free agents for the team now, before January? This article seems to suggest not: https://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/news/transfer-deadline-day-can-free-13044460 edit: Although this post I missed from Made in Aston suggests the Mirror are wrong... Presumably these are the rules we need to look at? https://www.efl.com/-more/governance/efl-rules--regulations/section-6---players/:

    Nah, I'm pretty sure they just sacked off the replays once they realised they couldn't do them properly.
  9. Here's Lerner's statement from when he sold up: In spite of my personal affection for reading history I have come to trust the future more than the past. And when I refer to the 'past,' I do so lightly and lightheartedly. I refer to recent accounts - mostly in the press regarding the sale of the Club, that are so many miles from accuracy or truth that I can only assume that they too were written by people whose tongues were firmly embedded in their respective cheeks. It is football after all. As I've said, it was my hope that ownership and custodianship of the Club would have been transferred some years ago when I knew that personal and professional matters made it impossible for me to contribute the time I did in my first five years with the Club. Time and immersion that is crucial to any formula for success.Still, fates are fickle in football so that we could claw back to safety last season, end up at Wembley at a Cup Final sitting amongst old friends!, and then spend the 2015/16 campaign at Bannockburn! As I expect this to be my last message to supporters through the Villa website I thought it worth reiterating that my approach from the beginning, consistent with my longstanding affection for The Trinity, was in three parts: Villa Park infrastructure, Bodymoor Heath infrastructure and the Villa squad. I have a sneaking suspicion that my best chance of any tolerable memories in this regard will lie with the father and son of this trinity…! In the end, however, so many wonderful young players came through Villa during my time and it is to them and supporters alike whom I am indebted. https://www.birminghammail.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/aston-villa-heartfelt-final-message-13053037
  10. Pretty sure the transfer window only governs incoming transfers, so McCormack can still go somewhere if their transfer window is open.
  11. Apparently he "had a bit of a hamstring" in Bruce's words. He didn't want to risk him pulling it and being out for months. https://www.express.co.uk/sport/football/898314/Aston-Villa-News-Jack-Grealish-Steve-Bruce-EFL-Championship

    Life long Villa fan and recent villa talk lurker. Lost touch a little bit with going to Uni and our depressing decline in our last years in the Premiership. Back in Brum now, and rediscovered my passion last year. Try to catch most of the games somewhere or another. Looking forward to engaging with and learning from the forum!
