  1. I hope such a sea of negativity is not replicated in the VP atmosphere, can't imagine players getting fired up with that kind of noise. We're more than capable of pulling it back. We've had two last minute winners in the last month let's be a bit more optimistic. UTV!
  2. I didn't get this guy at first, but the more I see the more I feel we're in the presence of greatness. He's like he's the Jackson Pollock of sh*tposting. Masterful stuff
  3. In RETURN matches we're now 6/6 points vs Norwich 4/6 vs Burnley 0/6 vs City 4/6 vs Brighton 3/6 vs Watford next week and continuing on a similar vein we'll be fine lads! UTV!
  4. Might have been mentioned already, but regardless of his on-field returns this is a really important investment for another reason. We unfortunately have a squad with quite a few slow, low-press types, so training week-in week-out with a guy who's hungry and won't give you time to dwell on the ball should have a significant impact on the overall intensity and speed of passing in our defense/midfield. Drinkwater getting up to speed will probably have a similar positive effect. Invaluable
  5. In return fixtures played we're now 6/6 vs Norwich and 4/6 vs Burnley this season, those kind of numbers vs bottom half teams and we'll stay up.
  6. Jack must be close to a suspension now. Last thing we need cmon Jack
  7. One positive from the game was us starting to get our press working. It's been frustrating in games to see the forward line constantly gesturing at each other to push up and press as a unit without success, but last night there were signs of progress. I distinctly remember one of the attempts to hunt as a pack which forced their defender to boot it out for a throw in on the far side. In comparison Chelseas press was incredible, made it really difficult to play out through, and was relentless. Hope we take lessons from that.
  8. How was the atmosphere at the ground?Seemed to vary from dead to lively at various stages but it felt like Sky varying the levels themselves
  9. When you can nail a free kick with his regularity it arguably makes you undroppable
  10. Not fear surely, just deep appreciation for the moment the club is in. The worries of today pale in comparison to the worries of the last decade, and you see that reflected in the positivity of the posting. We're all dreaming of a Sir Deano coronation following a decade of trophies, but even that team will be riddled with mistakes that need criticising. Then one day it'll all be over and we'll be back sitting in a relegation battle with geriatric Steve Bruce at the helm playing a 35 year old Grealish at left back, and you'll be wondering why you didn't enjoy the renaissance more at the time!
  11. We attacked well, defended well, and proved to ourselves that we aren't dependant on Jack to make things happen. Deano has worked miracles with this squad in not very long, but for all that I can't understand the subs. JMG was dead on his feet and we took off Luiz who was doing fine, then Kodj for Wes with five minutes left... Mystifying.
  12. McGinn is dead on his feet, can't track a runner. Surely he needed sub more than luiz
  13. Think there's a decent chance KDB gets rested after playing last two, Sterling not so much given lack of competition and how well he seems to be feeding off Mendy being back in the team. Scary to watch last night. Aguero looking really sharp again too. 5-4 Villa
  14. Villa "We'll give you £5m for him" Blues "£8m" Villa "Gtfo turns out he's got multiple hernias we'll have to sort out. £2m!" Blues *covers mic* "Crap they found out..." "OK ok, £5m" Villa "£2m plus Gary Gardner" Blues *swallow last vestige of local pride* "Done"
