  1. Young Nigel says he's happy, he must be happy. Case closed.
  2. Some of our fans need to get their head out of Bielsa's rear end. My take away from yesterday's game? We've got their number. Yeah they're a decent side, one of the better that we've faced this season and they will be tough opposition should we meet them in the playoffs - as would any team who's made the top 6 - but they are rattled. You could tell right from the word go they were playing like a team who knew they'd ballsed up their season. What they needed yesterday was a feel good win against an in form Villa to get them back on track for the playoffs, what they got was a hard fought draw and a potentially fractured dressing room. What we got was a perfect end to our winning run - takes the added pressure off the for playoffs, but doesn't break the unbeaten run - and a squad united in wanting to put the sword to those scummy cheats next time we meet. There's a reason Mings and Deano were all smiles at the end, they know we won the mental battle yesterday, and that's what the game was all about. Bring 'em on.
  3. Phillips is getting a lot of stick here - not that he doesn't deserve it for other reasons - but it was Roberts that feigned putting the ball out.
  4. The irony of Bristol City fans calling Birmingham a sh!thole having probably spent the walk home reminiscing about when Bedminster was a sh!thole before all the yuppies turned everything into gay bars.
  5. If you’re a fan of MF DOOM check out Son of Yvonne as well, all the beats are taken from his Special Herbs tapes.
  6. I've got a fair bit of catching up to do but thus far there's been nothing mindblowing for me this year, seems it's been a decent year for decent music. As a consequence I'm going for just a top five, as outside of that there's probably another 20-30 similarly 'good' albums. In no order: Big Red Machine - s/t Justin Vernon and Aaron Dessner realising a project that began as a song by the same name on a charity record a few years back. I was super excited when I heard this happened, it didn't live up to expectation but then I have massively high expectations when it comes to JV. Khruangbin - Con Todo El Mundo Khruangbin just make me feel good. Soundtrack of my summer. Noname - Room 25 Big D'Angelo/Badu/Soulquarians vibe here which is completely my jam. Beach House - 7 Super consistent band in another solid record shocker. Earl Sweatshirt - Some Rap Songs I'm as surprised as anyone this one's on here, but I like it. Saw it called 'Sadvillainy' somewhere which made me chuckle, and whilst it's on nowhere near the same level it's not the most outrageous assessment. Couple of special mentions / questionable entries: John Coltrane - Both Directions at Once: The Lost Album Recorded in '63 but released this year, that counts right? Tierra Whack - Whack World Whether a 15 minute 'visual and auditory project' can feature on an AOTY list I'm not sure, but it's one of the more interesting things I've listened to / watched this year.
  7. Disney might be a bit harsh, but I can't say I wasn't disappointed. Especially so as I thought Harmony of Difference was pretty decent and a sign of good things to come. Need to start putting my list together, though there's a few in this thread that have completely passed me by this year that I now need to check out.
  8. His perceived attitude problems probably arise largely from his body language on the pitch, much the same way we all thought Jordan Ayew was a miserable bugger. And perhaps his reputation for throwing his toys out of the pram at Bristol (though largely excusable when you factor in having to listen to Lee Johnson day in day out). I don't think anyone is saying that makes him a bad player, you seem to be zoning in on the wrong points in order to create conflict where there isn't any. The concept of humans giving more chances to nice humans over not so nice humans isn't a difficult one to understand. Kodjia is a good player, I don't think many Villa fans would disagree with that. Kodjia is and has been better for Villa than Scott Hogan, I don't think many people would disagree with that. I also think they're both behind Tammy in the pecking order. I don't really understand the overall point you're trying to make. You seem to be criticising fans for being optimistic that our new manager may be able to get something more out of a player most of us had written off as a waste of £13m. Even if it's just to raise his market value, or to play a bit part in cup games, it's not a bad thing, right?
  9. I don't think anyone is saying drop Kodjia for Hogan, they're saying we have a new manager so everyone gets a clean slate, and having had one of his better spells under our new manager it might be reasonable to expect Hogan to be one of those to make the most of that clean slate. I'm fairly certain no one is saying Hogan is the better of the two players. I also think it's fairly obvious why fans might be quicker to get on Kodjia's back than Hogan's, their perceived attitude to the game couldn't be more different. Hogan has always come across as a decent bloke with a decent attitude, fans like that. Kodjia behaves like a petulant child when things aren't going his way.
  10. It may or may not be Jack’s Dad but it took me less than 30 seconds to find that image on Facebook, as anyone else could’ve done.

    Yup that’s the plan! Used to live down that way so it’s a race I’m familiar with, was hoping to run something different this year as Eden was also my back up last year when I didn’t get into Snowdonia. Last year however I ended up running it as moral support for my sister, so it’ll be quite nice to run my own race this year especially seen as I know quite a few of the St Austell guys so it might get quite competitive!

    Any October marathon suggestions? Failed to get in to Snowdonia. Again.

    Play it by ear and see how you feel, but I can speak from experience that resting up and getting rid of the cold with have much more of an effect than any training you do between now and then, and running is just likely to make the cold last longer.
