  1. Yes he does bring up some good points and the issues involving them. I like how deep he gets into it all, it's like he's a Canadian man born in the wrong country, Pete your place is in the Black country mate. Apparently they have a big Villa following around where he lives which is lovely to know.

    Wait till you have had 17 years of it, you won't be thinking the same then, that negativity will soon be with you It has been a joy but being a single parent hasn't been without its challenges it's been very tough at times, I think the reward comes in for me now seeing how my lad is at college and seeing what he will do with his life. You may not agree with what everyone says but I suppose that's the beauty of it all here or any other place. We can't all agree all the time. I think we all have a different way we see the games that are being played out and it is good to share those views and see the difference in each others words. I do agree we could have easily rotted and gone to dust as a club and only been a memory in football, others clubs have not had a spot of luck we had and have gone. Being a championship club i fairly enjoyed to be fair but it isn't at the top is it? Villa being promoted with the new Owners was a wonderful sight. First season back in the top and we got in a final with City and survived just by the skin of our teeth. Even losing our captain but gaining Bailey, Ings and Buendia as with many of last years players has been a joy to see because it's a progressive experience where the better player is joining the club each season. Seeing the new staff and the affect they are having at the club is also a great feeling. Even the behind the scenes goings on you know theres lots happening and have to give credit to those responsible.
  3. Pete makes me laugh with some of the things he puts in his show. That whole European map with the plane taking off.
  4. It didn't come up on my notifications like usual.
  5. I think its spelt "Bobowler" mate, you do mean large Moth right? I liked phrazes like "Going round the Wreckin" which means taking the long rambling distance around a route or taking to long to explain something. Ackers- Money I think most will know Barmey. A face as long as Livery streets- means someone looks miserable. This ain't getting a baby a frock or pinny- means this is not getting us nowhere and its wasting our time. Donnies- hands It's a bit black over Bill's mother- The sky is dark and it's going to rain ( My uncle Bill used to say it to me when I were a little nipper) it used to confuse me and because he worked in the forges I'd say your Mucky Uncle Bill but your mothers not lol. Back of Rackhams- famous Red light spot once at the back of Rackhams for prostitution now House of Frazer if it's still there that is? Anyone know if it is or not? 'She'll be round the back o'Rackhams' if someone's accused of prostitution or I'll end up at the back o'Rackhams' if she felt like she were being forced into prostitution. I still say "Bostin" to this day and because I now live in yorkshire I screw some peoples heads up with it.
  6. I don't think it is but I am from the black country myself and grew up with the old sayings. Some of the lingo from back then, these days you say it and people are confused as hell.
  7. Heard pete say Walzall not Walsall lol.
  8. Comments like this from Everton fan on there site is lovely to see: (I was actually at Villa Park last night (Holte End) because my son lives in Birmingham and I was so impressed by the atmosphere. The Villa fans got behind their players from the first whistle to the last. They were every bit the proverbial 12th man.) Then you get one that made me laugh: (It's great to see that Villa players still go to the same Hairdressers as Grealish.) Its lovely to see that Hair comments are still being aimed at us, am afraid were stuck with that despite Grealish gone
  9. This I can understand why it should be booking for player as fan safety is a concern as neither player or fan should be crossing the barriers. We've been through it before where a player even Grealish went into the crowd did he not and got hit by a camera man. It just cuts alot of potential grief out and threats. Also as players do cross into fan territory you have mass fast stampede into one area, just a quick gathering and potential of someone falling over and being ran over. As I do stewarding we consider any group who can't be moved on a potential risk and danger. Also any group where its difficult to see waist up once your line of site can't see past the outer layer of groups gathered is a risk. Bailey these he's insane and I hate to being Grealish up but Bailey does what he does but only faster, better also down the line I believe. We won't even notice Grealish gone with having Bailey alone in our squad. Loved his goals they were absolutely wonderful and wouldn't surprise me if that first of his will be goal of the season or a contender to it.
  10. What even if were talking about buying him in January
  11. Millionaire if you put a bet on that happening.
  12. Do you know what I want to see at the end of the season is what sets both Ings and Tammy apart. Would it of been worth the extra cash or not and who out of Tammy's and Ings has benefitted there team the most.
  13. It's a Deal For more Tammy then, to be continued!!
  14. Fantastic tonight from this bunch of Lads, they have worked there socks off and done a job on West Brom. They have a good future ahead of them.
  15. Come on Lads you can beat the Baggies, I am fully confident you can kick there behinds.
  16. He said he'd like to play in the champions league, never heard him once say he wanted to do it with another club. It's the things he has said to the club and to the fans that clearly showed he traded in what he had for money and I don't blame fans one bit for hating on him for it. Sure he wants to better himself and theres nothing wrong in that. If Jack had of just left for City and he had not said some of the things he obviously said, I doubt there'd be any problem with it from villa fans.
  17. I think they are coming to sheffield utd again in a week or so.
  18. Looked more world class at Villa than he does at City, I'm afraid it was just a money whore move and whatever made Jack the player he were ended when he threw in respect and loyalty for the expensive way of life and medals. In a way I don't blame him for doing it but he could of showed the world for once that money doesn't always make a player or define one and sticking by Villa would of showed that.
  19. Doesn't look like a personal dream when ever since our Owners come in he were looking for a way out at one of the usual top finishers in the league.
  20. Welll why would you wear you moon gear around miami that's just idiotic in that heat. He probably shouldn't be going to the moon if he's making poor choices of wearing his astronaut clobber all while everyone else has F*ck all on lol. I think why people say it, is they are clearly stating that soon its going to become apparent that we wont reach europe having a player who makes these cheap mistakes. It's already creeping into slots minds because these simple amateur mistakes at that level cost you games and points. We are going to need an upgrade on Mings and the more of these mistakes Mings makes it only makes his weakness more of an easy problem to solve next window if he keeps it up.
  21. Of course wed be worse off without Mings that is a stupid thing to say for a start, wed be worse without any one of those players this season that's a fact. You say I'm talking nonsense and then you are saying pointless Shit. I think you just don't like anyone criticising Mings whether it's good or bad criticism. Mings isn't perfect he makes mistakes and being the last man in the defence often and being caught out will happen, it's about finding ways of stopping it and it's like you don't want to hear none of it. If all your going to do is keep saying someone's talking nonsense as soon as they make there point then why even bother replying at all. Sometimes it's like people can't even bloody speak around here or have a point, do I keep telling you your talking nonsense, no I do not. Just because you think tour right doesn't make others wrong you know.. Mings may do ace work but he has weaknesses and those weaknesses get exposed and no I do not believe it's worth the trade off, not at this level. If there is an answer and an easy solution as to put a fast player around where Mings is struggling under pressure, then why not take it. It just seems like tour all okay for Mings to keep making these mistakes, yet its these mistakes that keep us from reaching above and beyond in the league. If were going to continue to improve point blank Mings is going to have to cut these lapses in concentration out or we will end up replacing him if were to continue to improve. mopping up possible incoming mistakes is one reason why we have a CDM, then if your playing this down then what's the point of a defensive midfielder, they are there to help out in these kind of situations and put a stop to pressure.
  22. Somebody who makes as many mistakes as Mings has done since joining, the only answer would be to put Nakamba or Luiz around him as much as possible. Makes sense and is logical or continue with the same problems in having Mings F*** up. It's not talking nonsense when Mings should be concentrating more and lapses. Its highlighting why he's doing it and finding solutions but sorry I forgot nobody can criticise around here. Certain people get all up in the air about this type of talk and go off on the defensive and play whatever anyone says down. I certainly didn't say he couldn't do anything on his Own so stop putting words in my mouth, I said it's like Mings needs constant Guarding. More so just someone like Nakamba or Luiz needs to be more aware that the mistakes are more than likely to come through him being the last man and there is absolutely nothing wrong with having a player around him in his area of the field ready if it does happen. It's like a fracture in a defence, a weakspot you highlight it and you secure it abit more, it's not saying it's entirely weak but adding a different type of strength to it or around it could make the defence that much stronger. Doing nothing and continuing on and leaving things as they are will just lead to more goals against us and more mistakes by Mings. At this level sometimes you have to change game plans around, Mings obviously has a tough time dealing with tricky players, so the best thing in my eyes is to add some speed near Mings when attacks start coming in and shut the tricky players down fast. Mings is hardly anywhere near the level of those two player mentioned so I don't know why you even brought them into it. They're not playing for us and were not talking about them its Mings were on about here and they are just in a different class I'm afraid.
  23. Is it not, maybe it time release to xbox while it's under preview and it's worked on, some devs usually follow this road.
  24. PC game been out a year now and now on consoles. Anyone who likes building/RPG/dungeon type games then this would be up your street. There is so much to do in this game the creativity is a level above the rest. You can Cook, mine, fish, Build, Dungeon, Fight, Craft, Breed. Even has pokemon elements in and you use your pets for a variety of things one is to use them getting batteries by putting pets on a generator type hamster wheel. You can get a wide type of skills to build tour character how you'd like and you can take that character in anyone world. By the way there is no price to the game if have xbox game pass as it's on game preview at the moment.
