    17/18 Promotion Charge

    Who do we think our main challengers are going to be? Obviously at the moment it is difficult to predict who will be staying down here, but I think there's a clear divide between Newcastle, Brighton and the rest. Leeds are getting a lot of love but whilst they're well organised and physically dominant, I think they have been lucky to a degree this season. Maybe that luck will carry them all the way through. They are the side I would be happiest to be rid of anyway. I've seen Wednesday a few times and whilst they have a lot of natural ability in Bannan, Foristieri, Wallace, Winnall etc they do lack something extra. They can be physically dominated, much like Huddersfield who I also like, but question their sustainability. I think their manager is getting an awful lot from some very average players. Reading are a strange one, don't know what to make of them. Also very lucky and lucky with injuries. They've little depth. Same goes for Fulham. Derby are a mess. Sunderland will be coming down and unless there is massive upheaval at their club they will be staying down. They other two spots are still open, though Boro look extremely likely. They did a Villa last summer - signed 134 players and crossed their fingers. Basically, I fancy us. Hardly an earth shattering prediction I know but as a gabbling man I'd find it hard to look past us. Thoughts?

    Pre Match Thread

    So 2nd is gone (or it would take a major miracle for it to fall into our lap at this point.) So common sense points to us playing Middlesborough in the play off semi final. So, rest a lot of the usual players for the game against Derby or try and keep the momentum with a full strength team? I like the idea of mixing it up and giving opportunities to some of the more fringe players. Grabban certainly stated his case to start as the lone striker in the play offs with his performance against Ipswich. Maybe some others would do the same. As it's the last home I predict a cracking atmosphere and a comfortable 3-1 victory.

    under armour effort for some team ive never heard of, could make for an interesting villa away shirt template though, id be interested in a white body, claret and blue sleeve effort
  7. A second successive home win and clean sheet has left us just 270 playoff minutes plus stoppage/extra time away from promotion. We did not need to be at our best last night to emerge the victors and we were not. We had by far the better of the game and ran out comfortable winners, but we took our foot off the gas noticeably in the second half and other teams might have made us pay the penalty for that. This was our third game within a week, so it might have been tired legs rather than a casual approach that brought the visitors more into the game in the second half, but we never quite killed them off and a one goal lead can often not prove quite enough. This was a night when we might have boosted our goal difference I hope that we do not regret having not done so. Leeds are not the team to fear that they once were, but neither are we. They had some unfamiliar names in their starting line-up but of these their young goalkeeper Peacock-Farrell kept them in the game and their full back Pearce also looked very promising. These are two players that on this showing I suggest we would perhaps do well to keep an eye on for the future. My player ratings from a game that left me thinking what might have been had we performed a little better in a couple of our recent games and not spent so much of this season without Jack, JT and Kodjia are: Sam Johnstone – 6 – Tipped a 3rd minute Alioski shot over the bar. Rarely called upon after that. Ahmed Elmohamady – 6 – A decent enough performance. James Chester - 7 – Failed to get a touch on a great ball from Onomah on 69 minutes that was all that was needed to seal our win. Dependable as always at the heart of our defence. Mile Jedinak – 7 – Has done well alongside Chester in the centre of our defence as two successive clean sheets suggest. Mistimed his header on 76 minutes when Snodgrass found him with a free kick. Neil Taylor – 5 – Not yet quite up to the level he has given us at times in the past. Robert Snodgrass – 7 – Tried to curl an 18th minute shot inside the far post which Peacock-Farrell pushed out. Unusually hit a couple of free kicks harmlessly into the wall but hit some nice crosses and kept working at it. Glen Whelan – 6 – Did a decent enough job as our holding midfield player. Kept things simple and did well to be in the right position to cover at the far post to head away an attempt by Phillips to turn in a cross on 50 minutes. Josh Onomah – 6 – Much better than of late. Did well to work himself a 33rd minute shooting opportunity but flashed his shot wide of the near post. Kept busy throughout. Jack Grealish – 8 – MOTM - Had a couple of attempts to repeat his match winning shot against Cardiff but they did not trouble the keeper. Made a nice run into the box on 69 minutes and hit the ball from just outside of the 6-yard area which Peacock-Farrell blocked with his outstretched leg. Jonathan Kodjia – 6 – Ran on towards a nice early Snodgrass ball hit from inside his own half only for Peacock-Farrell to run outside his area, beat him to it and clear it with his head on 18 minutes. Looked odds on to hit a second goal for us when he was pushed by O’Connor at the near post as he looked to get his head to a sweet Grealish cross. For some reason his penalty claim was denied. I was surprised to see him start but each minute he gets sets him up to make a bigger contribution in our playoff games. Substituted having got 67 minutes game time. Lewis Grabban – 7 – Elmohamady hit an intended cross from the right so wildly across the goal that it fell to Grealish just outside the left-hand edge of the box. Jack then hit a perfectly flighted 29th minute cross which Lewis headed unchallenged into the left-hand corner of the net for our winner and his fifth goal for us. Was not quite able to turn a nice 61st minute ball from Snodgrass past Peacock-Farrell from close range and the keeper also got to Kodjia’s attempt to turn in the rebound which was ruled out for offside. Substitutes: Albert Adomah – 6 – Came on for Kodjia in the 67th minute. Grealish chipped a lovely ball over a couple of defenders to Albert whose 75th minute shot was blocked at the near post by Peacock-Farrell. He then left a defender for dead on 84 minutes on the left flank but then hit the ball wildly across the face of the goal rather than find Snodgrass who was unmarked on the centre edge of the penalty box. Scott Hogan - Replaced Grabban on 78 minutes. Not on long enough to earn a rating. Chris Samba – Replaced Onomah on 85 minutes and was not therefore on long enough to gather a rating. Get Up the Villa! John Lewis

  11. Who's getting relegated then? Pick 3/10. Anyone who lazily suggests the three promoted teams or Burnley gets banned. Only established premier league teams allowed. Have to say everytime I've seen Everton this season they look as bad as we did in 15/16 so them going down has to be a serious possibility. Swansea look knackered aswell, lost 5/6 this season and have lost so much quality in Sigurdsson and Llorente. Think Palace will beat a fair few around them so wouldn't rule them out just yet.

  13. Two Championship heavyweights traded blows last night before Super Jack landed a knock-out blow in the 85th minute that was good enough to win any game. Cardiff’s defeat is their second on the trot and they may now find pulling back Fulham who are on such an impressive run to be beyond them. There is therefore now a decent prospect of this fixture being repeated on 26th May subject to both teams emerging victorious from their two-legged semi-finals and avoiding each other in these. After the game Neil Warnock said, “you could see what it meant to Villa tonight the way you thought they’d won the World Cup when the whistle went.” He is right it wasn’t The World Cup and it is unlikely to prove too decisive in the promotion race, but it might just act as a bit of a confidence booster for us and knock that of his own club should the two teams happen to meet again next month. We played a lot better than we had at Norwich (it would have been difficult to play any worse) last night and the win takes us within four points of third placed Cardiff. A win on Friday against Leeds United will now see us qualify for the playoffs. Sadly, points dropped recently and unnecessarily have made automatic promotion an unrealistic prospect for us. Cardiff worked hard and pressed us giving our players very little time on the ball particularly in the first half. Although we look the better team on paper the game is not played on paper as the league table currently demonstrates. Our visitors could consider themselves unfortunate to have not had scored as the first half drew to its conclusion with them on top. The second half was a different matter with Villa posing an increasing threat until Jack hit his world class winner. My player ratings from a game that Villa produced a Royal Command Performance for the watching Prince William who was sitting comfortably next to his Villa hero John Carew last night are: Sam Johnstone – 8 - MOTM – His saves kept us level for Jack to hit our late winner. Having done so well to keep out a Whelan header in the third minute of first half stoppage time he then recovered quickly to block Paterson’s attempt from the rebound. Kept out a 57th minute Zohore shot from the edge of the box with his left foot at the left post and did the same on the 82nd minute with another shot from Mendez-Laing. Ahmed Elmohamady – 6 – An improvement upon his last game. James Chester - 7 – So solid at the back and was a reassuring presence in JT’s absence. Mile Jedinak – 6 – Filled in well for JT alongside Chester. Axel Tuanzebe – Picked up a knock which led to his early substitution when losing possession on 16 minutes near the centre circle to Mendez-Laing who ran on to hit a shot against the far post. Did not merit a rating during the time available. Robert Snodgrass – 7 – Had a penalty shout on 46 minutes when he went to ground after Bennett leaned into him just inside of the penalty area. Worked hard and well. Glen Whelan – 4 – A late replacement for Bjarnason who was injured during the warm up. Twice came uncomfortably close to getting an own goal in first half stoppage time. Morrison played the ball back across goal after Whelan had cleared his initial header only for Glen to send it goalward where Elmohamady was in the right place at the right time in the second minute of first half stoppage time to clear the ball off the line. In the next minute he headed a Bennett free-kick which looked destined for the back of the net before Johnstone pulled off a tremendous save to keep it out with his left hand. Conor Hourihane – 5 – Worked hard. Was found by a great Grabban ball on 69 minutes but having taken a touch his left foot effort ended in the side netting tis a pity his right foot is just for standing on. His 80th minute shot from the edge of the area after Grealish’s back heel had given him the opportunity was then pushed wide for a corner by Etheridge. Albert Adomah – 5 – Substituted after an hour. Hit a second shot inches wide of the post from a 34th minute Snodgrass corner after his first was cleared back to him by Bamba. Jack Grealish – 8 – Hit our stunning 85th minute winner when a Snodgrass free-kick was cleared to the edge of the box and fell to him in space to hit a right footed volley in off the inside off the left post. Given little protection by the referee having been clearly targeted for some special treatment by our opponents. Lewis Grabban – 6 – Doesn’t seem to carry quite the goal threat he did earlier for us. Hit the side netting on 2 minutes having been found by Snodgrass and headed a 48th minute Grealish cross wide of the far post. Substitutes: James Bree – 5 – Came on for the injured Tuanzebe in the 26th minute. Showed signs of ring rustiness but that was only to be expected. Jonathan Kodjia - 6 – Replaced Adomah on 60 minutes. Ran inside the box beat a defender and had a 65th minute shot saved by Etheridge at the near post. Gaining increasing match sharpness with each outing with a view to being at his best for the playoffs. Chris Samba – Replaced Hourihane on 88 minutes and was not therefore on long enough to gather a rating. Up the Villa! John Lewis

  15. I now feel there has been enough time to assess Bruce, now that we know pretty much where this season is ending. I still count this (not everyone does I know I know) as his first full season and he's pretty much got us play-offs barring something daft. This squad, whatever happens will change wholesale next season, and actually I don't mind that, I think we've witnessed a very good effort from a team composed of loan signings and others all of who do not know their future after this year - it was only ever to be a one season squad. The manager, has to take credit for achieving play-offs (not certain yet yes yes yes) and he will take enormous credit if he gets us promoted (I do think we have a great shot) - and he should stay at the club next season if he achieves that. If he doesn't then, he has said so himself, it's time for a different model and cutting our cloth accordingly - and I for one, do not mind the prospect of this one bit. It's actually how I'm insulating myself from the crushing despair that may come our way in a few weeks. So what next? This is a topic about what next in the prem, or what next in the championship. I'll leave the prem ideas to others, what I'm quite excited about is a new manager working with our talented youngsters including I hope Grealish, dashed with a bit of experience (Jedi, Chester if they stay, Kodjia might too after that injury) and us building a style of play that we can take into the prem and stick with, not building a squad for one season only, ever again.

    Uefa Champions League Draw

    Barcelona v AS Roma Seville v Bayern Munich Juventus v Real Madrid Liverpool v Man City
  24. Welcome to the Premier League 2017/18 VT prediction league, you can join in at any time during the tournament but please make sure you follow the instructions carefully. However, if you are just thinking about just playing for a single week, or are going to lose interest after a couple of weeks, then do us all a time saving favour and don't bother playing. -- Why Premier League, Villa are in the Championship? -- We did the Championship last year and it was a slog. There are just too many mid-week games per season to keep up with, so it's back to the Premier League. -- I see a Villa prediction, what gives? -- If Villa play in the Championship on the weekend of Premier League fixtures then I will include the Villa game as a bonus prediction. Getting the correct results for the Villa game will give you 2 points instead of 1, and the correct score will get you 4 points instead of 3. -- Making a Prediction -- Head on over to https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Q0EQFXauzVahxeUprjXRBbVa_G4VEWKVYWt9Dzw4pec/edit#gid=626698763 Make sure you are selecting the right sheet for the Gameweek (inactive sheets will be fully locked) Find the first 'blank' entry with all scores set as '0-0' and 'ENTER YOUR NAME HERE' as the name Green Cells are for you to enter stuff into, all other cells are not! Fill in your predicted scores for each game When entering your name, make sure it is EXACTLY the same as your VT name and that it doesn't have any erroneous spaces and is CaSe SeNsEtIvE Incorrectly entered names, even if it is just a space at the start or a capital letter, will result in tracking errors throughout the tournament Once your prediction is complete, copy the cells within the dotted line and post them into this VT thread If you do not post the results correctly into this thread then your prediction will be ignored Thread banter is encouraged! Gameweek already started? No problem you can still play, just put the score for the games you have missed as N/A, e.g Fulham N/A - N/A Villa -- When will prediction threads be posted up? -- Generally I will try and post threads on Tuesday or Wednesday of each week, but this may slip at times. Just keep an eye on the forum and it'll be there before the games start. Gameweek matches will follow those as laid out on the Fantasy Football Fixtures Page let me know if I miss something due to a game being moved or postponed etc. -- Previous Gameweek Results -- Name Result Points Score Points Total Points chappy 8 6 14 Czechlad 9 3 12 ismail-villa 9 3 12 andykeenan 8 3 11 Daniel 7 3 10 rubberman 5 3 8 Chewie 5 0 5 Demitri_C 5 0 5 imavillan 5 0 5 Decent week for Chappy with 14 points.
