  1. That is pretty much where I am at, word for word. Disappointed he left as I thought he would give us another season and re-evaluate our position then, but I can see it is not purely about money for him. Sadly He will 100% stand a better chance of winning trophies at Man City than here, which is what the elite players strive for and sets them apart from the rest. I won't wish him well for club as they are the epitome of the SL6 teams looking to dominate the game, but will wish him well for England as I would like to see England win something (however unlikely we think it is) in my lifetime.

    It depends on which team you play for as to whether VAR gets used, and whether the decision works for or against said certain teams.
  3. I was talking with my mate at work, and he wanted to buy his Dad a Man Utd "Ronaldo 7" shirt for his birthday at the beginning of this month. He was quoted a delivery date of 23rd December. I know Man Utd will be selling way more shirts than we do, but that is still a long wait and would suggest it is not just a Villa problem this year. Furthermore, the place I work at has had many issues getting hold of stock this year with goods promised to us for an early June delivery, being held up and despite updates was delayed numerous times and has only just been delivered in Mid August. Multiply that many times over with lots of shipments coming in late from various suppliers. It has been an absolute nightmare this year getting hold of stock with no idea how much the shippers are going to charge in surcharges on deliveries. We have seen costs rising from £5k per shipping container up to £15k for a shipping container. So I do feel a bit of sympathy for all businesses as the moment, they are in a no win situation.
  4. Going by the live text coverage on the BBC, it sounds like we played well, were the better team and unlucky not to come away with 3 points. Well done to the women’s team, sounds like a vast improvement has been made.
  5. *We are top of the league! *for the time being
  6. It probably won't stand because the clubs that are affected most will be the SL6 teams. However, You could argue that if they don't uphold the ban, they are effectively punishing us for following the rules.

    The NSWE Board

    100% agree, I can't see any sign for the fans to worry at the moment. Why would NSWE be looking to set up a Las Vegas Villans franchise in the MLS a few weeks back, or have planning in for an inner city academy near Villa Park, along with all the investment building the infrastructure of the club to sell up now. It makes no sense. Therefore I am not worried. I guess one way to look at it is to compare overdraft facilities versus other teams in the PL, what kind of facility do Newcastle Utd or West Ham or Spurs currently operate with? With the big sums of money flying about in transfer fees and wages these days I imagine there can be massive swings in cash flow, that our old £1m facility would not cover. This would save the owners having to inject cash to cover these cashflow pinches.
  8. Yeah Mount not clearing his lines properly there. Didn’t connect with his clearance, and they kept the attack going.
  9. Simple pass there and Kane was in. Disappointing decision making by Phillips there.
  10. Money and Greed puts paid to common sense, especially when FIFA are involved.
  11. Sometimes a player is worth more to the squad than what we would receive in a fee. I think @Woody1000 has summed it up nicely with the point on his leadership qualities and character within the squad. I wouldn't totally be against Mings staying here for the remainder of his career if he stays fit and offers good form in return. As he gets older you would look to supplement his position in the squad with a younger player to compete with and learn from.
  12. Yeah I 100% agree with that. I feel Mings is at the point of his career that he will happily see out the rest of it here. Konsa I think is under the same agents as Grealish, so with that in mind I can't see him being here in 2-3 seasons time if he continues to improve.
  13. Ah ok, I don’t listen to Talksport. Glad to hear it was shot down on TS as what he has said is a crock of shite. I have since realised the article on hitc is published to anger Villa fans and get clicks.
  14. He did say the following further in the article, “He’s brought it all together and now, on the international stage, he looks confident. Before, he looked like: ‘I’m in here, but I’m still fighting for my position’. Now, he looks like he’s comfortable in the team. It may be twisted by the writer though as the whole article is a joke though, and now having read it again is meant to anger Villa Fans. The final paragraph of the article confirms that for me.
  15. And so the BS begins Trevor Sinclair has told talkSPORT that Jack Grealish is playing with even more confidence for England after leaving Aston Villa for Manchester City in a British-record transfer. The midfielder left his boyhood club for the Citizens in a £100m deal in August, and penned a six-year contract. Grealish now earns north of £300k-a-week at the Etihad Stadium and has also started all three available Premier League fixtures under Pep Guardiola to date. “As I watched him more and more, it was the tiny bits of detail – the first touch, how he kills the ball, whatever scenario he’s in, and then that weight of pass, so his teammate isn’t trying to fight for the ball with the defender – [that caught my attention],” Sinclair said. What a complete utter load of rubbish!
