Vox got 15% of the vote at the last Spanish election. So more UKIP than EDL, more populist than fascist. I don't agree with their politics, but I can't believe we're genuinely trying to cancel Pepe Reina because he's a bit Bréxito. We literally have John Terry as assistant manager. Newsflash: some footballers are a bit unreconstructed.

Displaying so much moral superiority and then calling someone who may have a genuine alcohol addiction a "drunk" is also a bit rich.

Not really interested in getting into a big argument over this as I like a lot of your posts but you're wrong in equating Vox with UKIP. The percentage vote a party gets has no bearing on their politics. They're extreme right. They openly display their adoration of Franco, were fervent opponents of his exhumation, anti-equality, anti-immigrant...so calling him a bit of a 'brexito' tends to feed into the narrative that allows a lot of these extreme parties to gain a foothold in mainstream politics.

I don't see the problem, we need a right winger and a goalkeeper.  Reina kills two birds with one stone.

And 2 strikers

He probably favours making them illegal to be fair.

Welcome Pepe!

Not seen an awful lot of him since his Liverpool days where he was a very capable keeper, hopefully he will be a solid acquisition like Heaton was looking to be, prior the injury.

A clean sheet Saturday would be a great start!

Those posting about his political views have a genuine reasons not to like the guy. That’s fair enough. But how does that work from a support perspective? Do you just say your piece and the get behind him or does it go further than that? I.e. refuse to watch when he plays etc. 
 

Genuinely interested.

His CV is excellent - Personally I never thought he looked that great - but he needs to be superhuman until May.

Welcome Pepe!

I've not joined in with the calls for Nyland to remain our number 1 for the rest of the season, so I'm really happy with this signing. Experience, pedigree and undoubted leadership and calmness at the back.

I can just see him now, screaming at Konsa and Hause for the next player they let pass them. They'll be scared into performing better! He's our Heaton replacement and our on-field Nigel Pearson. I can't wait to see him strangle Hause the next time he passes the ball straight to an opposition striker!

Not convinced.

That being said i'd take close to anything to Nyland.

Except 2 weeks ago when you said Nyland was brilliant this season and would prefer hin over Heaton 🤔

This was his first start in the league and he was a horror show. Reminiscent of the Forest game.

Nyland got his chance. Didn't take it.

So you admit you flip flop your opinions over one game. We are all aware now Thanks

No i said he had a few decent cameos.

Never said he should be a starter.

I support Villa not Reina and I won't stop because he's our 'keeper for the next few months, neither do I want him to fail because I don't agree with his support, tacit or otherwise, of the insidious force that is Vox. They really are a nasty bunch. 

That said, I won't be cutting off my nose to spite my face. I want us to stay up. Who knows? He might not even be first choice. He seems quite happy sitting on the bench, whether that's for Spain or at club level, and animating from the sidelines.

In any case I really don't think goalkeeper is our major issue. Aside from perhaps the first goal, I don't see what Nyland could've done to stop the others against City. I've said it before and I'll say it again, without a proper DM we're going down. Goalscoring isn't our problem, with or without Wesley. It's the midfield.

pissheads and nazi's?  just like bosnich and mcGrath then😂  plus ça change plus c'est la même

Might aswell get James McClean on board. at least the banter on the team bus won't be Jack and Henri talking about shampoo anymore.

Good thing you're not a decision maker at the club. Goalkeeper is a very big issue.

Perhaps goalies are just a bit daft, it's certainly the impression I've got.

Who can forget Wayne Hennessey

But not our major one. Midfield is still a bigger concern.
