    Just seen its the 47th anniversary of the Ibrox Disaster today. As much as ive no love for Rangers, its still a sad and shocking thing to have happened. No one should go to a game and not come home! It could happen to any of us. RIP

    Brilliant win and performance tonight. I thought our approach in the second half was some of the best stuff we have seen under Bruce. We took control of the game, barely giving Forest a sniff. My only criticism id that we really should have put them away with another goal. We never looked like conceding though. I though Terry showed why he is a class act and Hogan aside from the goal looked hungry and confident. He really deserved that goal. Snodgrass though was exceptional and a real thorn in their side. Final ball still lets him down at times but Grealish is looking sharp and posing problems, long may it last. Bjarnason also deserves a mention, did his job very well. We must build from this and take more belief and confidence in what we can do the opposition.

    EFL1 (Championship), Saturday 13/01/2018 : Nottingham Forest 0-1 Aston Villa Once again I predict a draw and we get a win ... how long can this be sustained ?! This is AVFC's first double of the Season, there are 9 more opportunities pending. Attendance : 25,433 (SSN) After this result AVFC's total Form Points rose from 78 to 80 ... that is, points after 46 games. The maximum available is still 104 points, with 57 points left to play for. AVFC stay above par and are 4th in the table, with 47 points and GD at +15 from 27 games.

    A lot hinges on the team Bruce selects you feel. I'd be shocked (not really) if Bruce was stupid enough to start Jedinak over Elphick. Similarly Jedinak starting in midfield over Whelan is a must. Every time you feel we are about to kick on we tend to go back into our shells and play abysmally especially in front of the sky cameras. It's time for us to start showing some consistency and having the courage to go to places like Forest and take 3 points.

    I wouldn’t be happy with Bruce if we finished first!, I’d be delighted for the boys and the club but I never wanted that inept footballing dinosaur anywhere near our club.

    I love FA Cup Round 3 weekend. It's part of the football calendar. This year - for the first ever time I didn't actually care how Villa got on... Well, I did. I couldn't help myself but listen to the commentary. Yesterday's result was nothing more than a disgrace and embarrassment. The bigger thing was the fact it hasn't been seen as a shock in the media. How have the mighty fallen eh? Don't get me wrong - credit where its due to Peterborough. Not sure what else to say.

    Hi Dimitri, I was wondering if you were" Grim Reaping" this year. It gives me something to look forward to now Christmas is over.(Or shall I wait another day for twelfth night ! ) I was considering using the same "team"as before ,but having given it a bit of thought, I shall use one of my substitutes, so here is the list for 2018. Deborah Meaden H.R.H.Prince Charlies Ann Widdecombe Barbara Windsor ,(is she royal too ? ) Sir Mick Jagger best wishes to all the villogers for the new year.

    As much as I see the fun side of this and the light humour intended. I do find it a bit morbid that your actually hoping people will die to get you points .... lol

    Full credit to Steve Bruce and the team. I've been pretty disillusioned with the last few results before Boro but that was a serious statement. Was relieved not to see Jedinak at centre back. Selection spot on today. So many positives to take from this not least Hogan scoring and Grealish who has been are brightest spark in recent weeks. It just goes to show what this team is capable of, we must build on this! UTV!

    Any of you still believe we have no chance after the last 2 results ? I expected us to lose ground on 2nd over the Xmas period with the injuries and fixtures we had, we haven't and that is a huge bonus, looking at the next 10 games now would be an excellent time to find some form.

    Hi Dim, Hope all is good with you and yours, work commitments have taken up a lot of time and following Villa can be hard work, but back now and hoping we can get back into the promotion race. I must say I'm quietly confident with my five picks delivering some points for me. Happy new year.

    Injuries to key players, never able to field a fit full strength team, injuries causing a changed team almost every game and yet as the 2nd half of the season gets under way we are 7th and outside the top 6 on goals scored and 7 points off 2nd......am I convinced that we will go up after some lacklustre displays ? no, but I can see reasons to believe we could improve and even if we don't we'll probably be thereabouts.

    I don't like the fact that Bruce has come out and said that the ONLY reason Jedi was in Whelan's position was because Whelan was ill. Jedi was going to be played at CB, but he had to put Elphick there instead and move up Jedi to Whelan's slot. Just shows how clueless Bruce really is......

    That's because Bruce doesn't know anything about tactics. He's proved that at EVERY club he's ever managed. Plays players out of position, come up against a manager who knows how to change a game and Bruce will be lost. Apart from the promotions & relegations he's achieved what has any of his teams ever done ? Serious contenders, mid table or relegation positions mostly..... He's been lucky with wins against inferior teams, but any decent team and we get shown up time and time again. As stated earlier Sheffield were on a dire run of form and yet we made them look good again.

    Original post moved from the FA Cup thread, copied below from the QPR v Aston Villa match thread : Patrick, If you want to discuss the Forum's future, do it here, not in the FA Cup thread. Thank you for your comments, which I disagree with.
