    Sky TV packages

    I've got some questions that I'm hoping a few of you could help me with. I'm currently with Virgin - phone, TV (Mix package) and 100mb Fibre. I'm paying a fair bit and now out of contract so going to call up and cancel it as I can get a better deal with Sky. Sky deal is Sky Entertainment, Fibre Max 63mb and phone all with Sky Q for £45 a month. The main question is, if Virgin decide to match the deal would you reccomend staying with Virgin or moving over to Sky (mainly for the Sky Q). Does anyone know how noticeable 100mb to 63mb fibre would be (only 2 people in the house) If I go the Sky route, is HD worth it? Do you get many channels?

    Hopefully there are plans to upgrade the North Stand first, and then the Doug Ellis stand. However I would doubt anything will happen until we are back in the Premier League. There's absolutely no point upgrading the capacity of Villa Park to 60,000 as we would never fill it. 70% of our games have 8-10,000 empty seats at Villa Park. Sky are obviously not helping this, especially with the red button games this season... but that is for another conversation.

    Jack Grealish

    He's a brilliant player and is likely to kick on now as his form has improved since the change in manager and change in style of play. I think he will prove himself as the best player in the Championship this season and will most likely see us push hard for promotion. In saying this if come the end of the season we don't go up and Grealish ends up being sold for £25-30 million we are now in a much better place to spend the money wisely and better the squad. With the new owners and the new coaching staff we are heading in the right direction and Grealish's loss wouldn't hit the club as badly. Obviously I would love for Jack to stay and take us back to the Premier League. For now let's just enjoy having him in the side playing as well as we all know he can.

    Blose pre match

    Nope

    18/19 Race for Promotion

    After 17 games last season we had 29 points. In our next 6 games we went on to take 9 points leaving us with 38 points. Sunderland W, Ipswich W, Leeds D, Millwall D, Derby L, Sheff U D After 17 games this season we have 24 points. In our next 6 games I would be dissapointed to not take 14 points leaving us with 38 points and on an even keel with last season. Blose, Forest, Boro, Baggies, Stoke, Leeds From that point on it's all about keeping winning runs going instead of stuttering like last season and winning games over drawing them. A plus is also the fact that we will have had much more time under Smith and a January transfer window approaching to strengthen the squad.

    January transfer window 2019

    Blose pre match

    Completely agree, absolutely no need to change the midfield after Saturday's performance. Jedinak is useful in the air but he won't be as active in the deep role as Hourihane is, it's now part of our game to press and show some energy going forward and we need to continue this. We shouldn't be having to change the team to suit the opposition against any team in this league, least of all the scum at home.

    I actually have an answer on the mobile phone coverage at Villa Park courtesy of Ian Dimmock who is now the Operations Director at Villa (I've started following him on Twitter). Villa have a a state of the art 4G network in the the stadium however only one network is currently on the system. From peoples feedback on here it would seem that network is Vodafone. He's advised they are working on getting the other networks on board. Since he posted the message on Twitter a lot of people have tagged in O2 and they are now working with the club to get 'plugged in' to the 4G network, so hopefully soon O2 phones will begin to work in and around the ground. Good news for me as I'm on O2 and checking the team before game and the half time scores is a nightmare.

    John McGinn

    We've got McGinn Super John McGinn I just don't think you understand He's Dean Smith's man He's better than Zidane We've got super John McGinn

    John McGinn

    I like the fact that he picks up a yellow in most games, it's about time we had a midfielder snapping into tackles regularly throughout games. We haven't had a player like McGinn since Milner, someone who can play the nasty side, something for the opposition to worry about. If you have a player there constantly snapping at the heels the opposition midfield are stifled and have less time on the ball. If he missed a game every 7 or 8 then so be it, we have enough quality midfielders in our squad to cope and give him a breather.

    Tammy Abraham

    I don't think he would be ready to start for Chelsea next season, if we go up I can see him coming back for our first season in the Premier League which would be a massive boost. Past that I can't see Chelsea letting him go, and not for the money we would be prepared to play. Brilliant striker and is almost a mix of Kodja, Hogan and Davis.
