  1. He was on The Apprentice which I guess is why the blue tick. His dad is (or was?) stadium announcer at villa park though so might have some info I guess.
  2. So what time do the ITKs start coming out about the failed medical? So gutted
  3. Perfect, thanks . He tends to remember when players do something wrong and forget when they do something right. I would love us to keep hold of the kid, going to be a great player.
  4. Yes my old man. I would take great pleasure in everyone telling him why he is wrong so I can show him this thread.
  5. Would have no problem with Doug Ellis stand being renamed, it's still Witton Lane to me anyway. Is it possible there was a clause put in to not change that when he sold? If so hopefully that dies with any sale. Plus the North stand is just the North, it bears no significance if it gives us more revenue to compete again. Not sure how i'd feel about the whole stadium or Holte end being changed though, it would be nice to keep some sense of who we are/were but if that's what we need to do in order to compete again?
  6. I don't think there's anything to miss based on the the last 5 years. It will be refreshing to go into a season thinking were actually entering a competition we can we win, I know its unlikely but at least there's an opportunity. I don't think we've won more than 10 games a year for some time, if we can win 15+ next season at least I'll be going home with a smile on my face more often than not, plus the highlights are on before I've fallen asleep.
  7. To be fair to Hutton he get himself in numerous good attacking positions (for a full back) with absolutely nothing in front of him and no options for a final ball. Yes he's not the greatest defender and is prone to finding himself out of position but he clearly puts in the effort and is one of the few who actually seem to give a ****. If we can get better then replace him but there's far more pressing issues for me.
  8. Managed to get tickets about half hour ago, they had 130 left when i called. If the criteria doesn't go down to season tickets holders (which is unlikely) I'll have 2 spare return train tickets from new street, let me know if your interested.
  9. I'm 29 and was thinking the exact same thing. Had a season ticket since 11 and at no point have I ever thought we'd be relegated, including the last two seasons. This season I can see no way out. There is nothing in this squad that makes we think we have any chance of have of staying in this this league. I don't even blame the players and can't fault their effort but they are just not experienced enough to handle this sort of pressure. I've always stuck up for Lerner, maybe blindly due to the previous owner, but he has tried to cut too much to soon leaving us with a squad unable of coping in the top division of English football. It's a sad day for me as the realisation has now set in that we're probably going down, something I had never previously contemplated. Or maybe I'm just being melodramatic and it'll all be fine.
  10. Yes, for a 2nd round league cup game against league one opposition!
