  2. 14/11/2019 : Updated OP, European Championship Qualifying Group A. Thursday 14th November : England 7-0 Montenegro Att: 77,277 (SSN) No Mings tonight ... what a surprise !
  3. 14/11/2019 : The sale of Hillsborough was entered into Sheffield Wednesday's 2017-2018 Accounts, but was actually made in their 2018-2019 financial year. This falsified their profit and loss totals in an attempt to show 'compliance' with the EFL's financial rules. Now they are up before the beak, so to speak. I hope there is nothing untoward in our accounts regarding Villa Park ! DT - Sheffield Wednesday charged with breaking EFL financial rules and face hefty points deduction if found guilty

    UK Floods

    14/11/2019 : The Environment Agency is responsible for preventing/minimising flood damage but it seems they are aloof, ignoring advice from locals about the state of streams, rivers (lack of dredging) etc., pursuing their own pet projects instead.

    UK Floods

    UK Floods Is it just me that finds the floods in this country a little embarrassing? How is a country, so rich, so under prepared by floods? It is about time the politicians in this country stop point scoring with each other and do their jobs - make the right decisions for the country.
  6. Indeed. It is certainly a game we would have pinpointed that we should be winning - especially at home. Newcastle would happily take a point right now, id imagine.
  7. It would be boring otherwise wouldn't it? The problem with corners is there seems to be a big thing in the Premier League about hitting the near post. I remember watching Tubes on football Am asking someone why they do it because they are mostly ineffective. Targett for me never looked ready for a battle. I remember when we got him that I read a comment from a Southampton fan saying when the going gets tough, Targett will disappear. Jack is apparently back in training this week isnt he? McGinn probably had his worst game in a Villa shirt against Wolves. It may be completely irrelevant but i have noticed some of our players tweeting/posting on instagram quite late the night before a match day. Have rules changed these days or is Smith just more relaxed?
  8. Last week
  9. I remember when people were having a whinge after the Palace game because we weren't good enough, but we improved in the next games after that so let's hope we do this time round
  10. Would certainly make changes maybe even change the formation- Hopefully the football Gods will smile on us and Jack will return, Free kicks and corners are woeful Conor who i feel has been not given a fair crack should start in place of Ducker Luiz his goal threat has been missing too. ,Targett who looked miserably out of his depth replaced by Taylor or Hause, Hopefully with Jack back SJM will revert to form provided he isnt exhausted by Scotland otherwise he needs a break. Deano looked angry after Sunday and should follow it up by dropping the no shows before it becomes too late. VTID
  11. 13/11/2019 : League Cup Round 5 (QF) matches, our game will have its own Match thread. I will update all the scores in this post. Tuesday 17th December Aston Villa 19:45 Liverpool - SKY Wednesday 18th December Everton 19:45 Leicester City Manchester United 20:00 Colchester United Oxford United 19:45 Manchester City - SKY
  12. As far as i can recall Bruce never beat Deano a draw was the best result in our games whilst in the Championship-hopefully this trend continues. VTID
  13. EPL (Premier League), Monday 25/11/2019 : Aston Villa v Newcastle United, KO 20:00 hours, SKY. 12/11/2019 : The return of the Bruce ... delayed by SKY, but nevertheless it will afford us the chance to compare the playing styles of our current and former Managers. I expect to see a win for AVFC and might have been conservative in my prediction. Prediction (in Prediction League), made today : Aston Villa 2-0 Newcastle United
  14. SPL (SPFL1), Sunday 24/11/2019 : Hamilton Academical v Rangers, KO 12:15 hours, BT Sport 1. 12/11/2019 : Rangers Away to the most learned team in the SPL (allegedly) on Sunday week. Like a side batting second, we will have a target, knowing by then the Opposition's result on Saturday week. SPL matches, 23-24 & 26/11/2019 : Saturday 23rd November Celtic 15:00 Livingston Hibernian 15:00 Motherwell Kilmarnock 15:00 Heart of Midlothian St Mirren 15:00 Ross County Sunday 24th November Hamilton Academical 12:15 Rangers - BT Sport St Johnstone 15:00 Aberdeen - SKY Tuesday 26th November St Mirren 19:45 Hibernian
  15. 12/11/2019 : EPL (Premier League), Monday 25/11/2019, KO 20:00 hours. Predictions for Game 16, Wk13 : Aston Villa v Newcastle United

  17. Its certainly all ifs and buts but we have been close to taking something out of so many games. What struck me about next month is that we play the 3 teams below us one after the other and have a real opportunity to put a serious gap between ourselves and the bottom 3. Of course this is The Villa, doing ourselves a favour isn't in our DNA.
  18. All ifs and buts of course. I do think that there has been a lot of negativity following the defeat to Wolves. We were not good enough and the manager stating the same. I am still confident of staying in the Premier League and I believe as fans we need to remain optimistic.
  19. If we can win the 4 games I mentioned very comfortably.
  20. Alternatively it could see us comfortably sitting mid-table 🙂
  21. Not an easy game and I don't doubt Brucie would like some payback for the way he was treated. This and home games with Norwich and Southampton and an away game at Watford could see us deep in the shite or sitting pretty come the new year when hopefully we get a decent striker in.
  22. 11/11/2019 : FA Cup, I will update all the 1st Round scores in this post.

  23. Sure hope Jack is available for this- -----would be really bittersweet if Steve Bruce----"done us" on his return to Villa Park.
  24. ASTON VILLA v Newcastle ASTON VILLA v Newcastle uNITED Pre/post match chat, Live chat & Analysis Premier League - Matchday 13 Monday, 25th November 2019 Villa Park, Birmingham 20.00 Kick-Off
  25. Its one of the reasons why i dont go to Wolves away. The best part of the day is the drinking in Birmingham. It is so hard to get a atmosphere going amongst away fans because of where they put you. Id agree with your summary otherwise.
