  4. Dyche quick to jump on the 'they only stayed up because of a hawkeye error' bandwagon today. No mention that Ben Mee got off scott free for finishing our main strikers season with an awful challange. Hope we do these tomorrow.

  17. EPL (Premier League), Sunday 04/10/2020 : Aston Villa 7-2 Liverpool So much for the cautious draw ... maybe I should predict one every game ! I followed this game three-ways, Radio commentary, SSN Live Commentary and my Twitter feed. So for the record our goalscorers were Watkins (3), Grealish (2), McGinn and Barkley. An excellent result which could have seen even more goals. Now I hear commentators saying this result is a 'freak' ... the only thing possibly 'freakish' is the high scoreline, but this result is the sort of result we should expect from AVFC. Ours is no tinpot diddy team

  18. Benrahma?, I'd like to see him sign but think Brentford need to lower their expectations regarding the fee. I'd prefer Harry Wilson as the additional attacker. But definitely need to add some better quality on the bench.

  20. 24/09/2020 : Stu, I have noticed a display inconsistency with posts, it seems to be linked to the 'go to the first unread post' function. When I click on the unread post button it goes to the post, but the post is shown half-screen, left justified. If I go straight to a thread and open any post, read or unread, within the thread, then the display is full, i.e., across the whole page. Half-screen is the format used for posts shown in our activity, where they are right justified (and that is no problem there). Ha! - I have just been to my activity page and our posts are show

  22. There comes a point when you have to stand firm and try and progress as a club and keep your best players, delighted with the ambition shown by the club. We must make some progress this season and not got involved in any relegation battle, really excited for the season to kick off. Everything is here for us as a club to go on and progress

  23. It should be nothing less than restoring AVFC to its No:1 position in English football. If that is not the ambition then it will not be good enough.

  24. Absolutely, we seem to be 'penny pinching' unfortunately as the transfer window nears it's end prices will only go up not down. If we have identified a player we need to pay the price and get it done, or move on. WATKINS & BENRAHMA should have been done weeks ago, if we really are interested in signing them. Then the 'need time to gel' excuses will get rolled out..........AGAIN.

  25. Time to keep things steady, no major changes. We have the spine of a good team and good character as demonstrated. 4 or 5 good signings in the right areas and I think we will be fine next season. Smith deserves full support next season and Suso leaving would appear to be a nod the recruitment wasn't quite up to scratch like the glaring deficiency we were left with upfront. I think the break showed we shouldn't write some of these players off. Luiz and Konsa were much improved and a player like Wesley may still prove a good player. Big problems were addressed over the break,

  27. Less than two years ago we were sat here discussing the possibility of bankruptcy, winding up orders and relegation to league 1 or worse. We all know the detail of what has happened in the months since, why we found ourselves promoted and barely able to field a team. The foundations are taking place for something that we can finally build a decent team on, no bomb squad, no ageing players that are no longer first choice drawing huge salaries, just a group of young players, rapidly assembled who will hopefully get better.

  28. Absolutely, Bruce was hammered for performances like that, not necessarily wrongly. We've been naive at times this season but now we are surrendering any kind of battle before we take to the pitch expecting to soak up pressure something which isn't playing to this teams strength.

  34. And Collymore. In a time when mental health is a big issue you would think people would think twice before jumping on someone's back. Yes he did wrong, admitted it and has been punished (with possible further punishment to follow) but to constantly make personal digs at a man who is probably living alone, who has had is world turned upside down probably isn't the best things to do. You would have thought after the Caroline Flack incident people would think first.

  36. I don't think it will effect E-Sports. I think you will benefit from this as more people are stuck in their homes craving some kind of sport. As i said, if it doesn't take off during these current hard times, I don't see it ever taking off. Now is the time to jump in my opinion.

  39. Did anyone see that our recently published loses of over £60 million included a payment to Lerner of over £30 million ? the damage done by him and Xia cannot be fixed in one summer. We've been chasing our tails with short term plans of either trying to stay up or get straight back up for so long that a long term plan is exactly what we need. This team drives me crazy, I've criticised Smith but our biggest problem has been individual errors, largely by young players who will hopefully improve. Relegation was always a strong possibility and we all knew it. So while I fully underst

  41. Defence issues 😒 I watch and wonder why we dont tighten up the opposition wingers. We give them far too much room and time to cross the ball into our six yard danger area. Our left and right back guys should be hot on their heels and prevent them from having time on the ball. This issue is the same every game ,which is why we are conceding too many goals. I can see it ,why cant our coaching staff see it and address this big issue before it's too late. I do hope the coaching staff read these comments. This is my very first post on this forum.

  43. This was criminal and how they failed to punish us for it I don't know, though Leicester were very poor themselves despite the scoreline. A struggling team like ours should never be using zonal marking, it seems a lose system based of it anyway as how could this pair up happen. A well drilled team who know what they're doing then perhaps zonal can work but not here, it's crazy. We should have gone back to basics a long time ago but our failure to adapt has cost us. Comparing us to everyone else around us I really can't see anything other then another embarrassing last place finish.

No one is learning and thats dam frightening! They want time and space thePremiership DONT GIVE THAT!!! look at Albrighton he destroyed us and is just the creative winger we are crying out for now!! Ndidi scared the hell out of our midfield and Barnes and Albrighton ran us ragged-- we are so dam poor!i can imagine Franky boy wringing his hands in anticipation of saturdays visit-i just hope Tammy dont play he will have a

  45. After watching that shower of shite at Leicester last night smith has lost the dressing room in my opinion. Even captain Jack looks like he’s signed for manure already and doesn’t want to spoil his future. p*ss poor tactics, no effort and time to go smith.

  46. Don't really know what to say Freddy, we are an absolute shambles. DS should have gone in January, (although I would have sacked him earlier) he is clearly out of his depth. We are doomed, we need fight and desire to get out of this mire, unfortunately these are two qualities this team lack.

  48. We have tinkered with the system and line up, none of it has worked and it is now clear that players gelling or acclimatising to this league isn't the issue. There is no way Smith hasn't considered two up top, it is the one thing he hasn't tried. I just hope he has the balls to give it a go because we are going down if he doesn't do something different.

  49. Hi Ron, and welcome aboard, what you say is bang on, we commented only yesterday how much time Foden had time and time again during both halves, he was initially the cause of both goals and apparently was awarded MOM,,yes it happens every dam game--but who is to blame?? players?coaches? both??----but one thing for sure it needs addressing!!
