    The other way of looking at it is, yes we were sh*t today but west ham (a genuine mid-table team) could not beat us. We are nothing if we are not resilient .

    I've just seen Villa lose a cup final and I'm happy with the result, never thought I'd hear myself say that but I was dreading this game. Losing now is water off a ducks back, but to be humiliated in a cup final is something I never want to see again.

    As far as I'm concerned survival is the goal again, not league position. I'm happy being patient while the rebuilding happens and I'm not going to pop an anti-depressant after a loss, I'm convinced that our resurgence is going to occur quickly and it'll be down to the right signings rather than the right amount. Lambert is the man for the job, and if Lerner is being legitimately portrayed in the statements released about him not selling then he could very well be the right owner.

    It wasn't the first time I've watched Man Utd dick us and I know it won't be the last, but it's irrelevant who we played, we were abject, again. United didn't break a sweat yesterday and neither did Liverpool, Newcastle, Spurs or Everton... We are absolutely dire and I'd argue that we've played just as badly as that in games against City and Southampton that we won. We've also played that badly against West Ham and Sunderland and managed to hold out for a 0-0. It's absolutely pathetic. When have we genuinely given a good performance this season? Arguably Chelsea... Maybe Arsenal, but it's worth remembering that we had two penalties and a break away goal against ten men that day. Yes we've had tough home games, but we've also failed to beat West Ham, Hull, West Brom, Sunderland and Fulham - All teams that I have marked down as "three sides worse than us". We've relied on lucky wins to paper over the cracks and when that luck runs out we'll be in trouble. We have absolutely no idea going forward. Our ball retention is sh*t, we don't create anything or look threatening. Not just against United, but against everyone. The only reason we beat Cardiff was Bacuna's free kick. There are loads of players who should be dropped, but who do we replace them with? Our squad is crap. There's no quality in our side at all. The most disappointing thing about yesterday is that the performance was exactly the same as we've seen all season. Dull, blunt, flat. As soon as we go behind we've had it because we all know that we don't have it in us to create anything to get back into the game. If my car wasn't blocked in yesterday I'd have gone at half time. The football, not just yesterday, but all season, has been just as bad as anything served up under McLeish. Stoke, Palace and Swansea... Hopefully we can scrape a win there somewhere to give us some breathing space. If not it could be a long second half of the season. We must be playing some of the worst football in the division?

    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.

    a few lessons to be had---Jack lad this aint the Championship players are much sharper quicker and can disposess easily without fouling---you cannot linger on the ball in or close to our box-- Wesley needs to tuff up----collapses far far too easily---subs were ineffective Kodj caught dwelling too and Jota looked lost? but lets not forget Spurs were the 2nd best team in Europe last season-- 2 home games now and hopefully chance to get back to winning ways-- VTID--

    I think a lot of deals are all depending on holidays. Agents can only do so much without the players.

    Just been reminiscing, 37 years ago this very minute I'd have been an hour into the 60 hour session that was Rotterdam, we got back into Brum about the same time the final whistle will go on Monday....here's to another Villa victory though I could do without it being quite so nervy at the end. Have a great day all you that are going, if the semi is anything to go by me and my kids will be part of a large contingent of Villans lifting the roof off the George Tapps here in Bournemouth. UTV

    The received wisdom when I was a kid was that it took at least 3 years for a manager to build "his" team, we haven't had a manager since MON who could field "his" team. With Pitarch in place now there should at least be some continuity so that if Smith ultimately does fail a new coach will be coming into a squad that was assembled with a vision, not some hotchpotch of a squad thrown together by the previous 3 or 4 managers. Six months ago administration was a real prospect and relegation seemed inevitable, now we are within a whisker of the play offs. Its been frustrating of late but after seeing us spend years getting our arse's kicked week in week out its not so bad, some patience is required.

    All I’ve heard for the last couple of years is how we’ve got the best attack,internationals all over the shop,deepest most experienced players,fortunes spent stealing other EFL teams best,come to us and they are shite!! Expensive,poorly assembled squad! Its frightening to see what pap SB and predecessors bought!! Yes agreed not DS team,but how with the most expensive team are we so f**cking poor?!! p*ss poor!! And DS is struggling to get a tune out of em?!?! WTF! Cos let’s face it,he is!! Tammy goes,who scores?,cos he hates Kodja! And Hogan ,hells bells!! As for elphick! f**cking hell,probably had one good game since signing! We all expect to be at least in the playoffs after last year and yet we are being outplayed by bargain basement teams and scrapping draws against them and frankly for our club,that should just NOT be happening!! It’s terrible to watch,just terrible!

    Regarding the 'dream team' of Thierry Henry and John Terry, I question if Henry can be regarded as inexperienced. Remember he is currently No2 to Martinez in Belgium and Belgium acquitted themselves well in the World Cup. They finished 3rd and played with style, which I would attribute to both Martinez and Henry. As to 'could it cost us', that is the risk with any new manager. How many folks thought David Moyes would flop at Man United after being appointed on the recommendation of Sir Alex Ferguson ?

    Bristol City fan here with the local info for Friday week The bulk of the holiday season has been and gone now BUT the M5 from south of cheltenham can still get snarled up. So set out early if you can Coming by road use M4/M5 southbound to junction 18(Avonmouth) then follow signs A4 Bristol airport It looks the long way round but its quicker. Not a good idea to use M4/M32 YOU WILL GET LOST and its friday night rush hours Parking is normally in the streets around the area as long as you are there by 16:30pm please don't block drive ways or park on corners. Parking tickets were handed out for our last match against Sheffield United. Looks like train travel is NOT an option,unless your coming in from one of the stations in the Bristol areaIf you do use the train from where ever,please get the tickets issued to Parson Street as its push's up the footfall at the station although it is the same price as Bristol Temple meads Till Ashton gate halt comes on line. When you approach the ground from the winterstoke road direction I suggest you walk past wickes using the pavement as the concourse area behind the big new stand gets very congested with bodies UNLESS YOU WANT TO SEE THE JOHN ATYEO STATUE Split train tickets are available to Bristol from the London area as well as from Swansea/Cardiff area and group save is also availble on GWR trains, If there are at least three of you get a taxi from the Bristol Temple meads to the ground Make sure the taxi driver drops you in the Ashton Road end as it a very long walk round from the other end Casualty and Holby City were filmed in the City don't ask me about either of the programmes cos I think their both rubbish The young ones was also filmed in the BS7 area of the City(actually its Bishopston) Finally the block of flats on the left behind the dolman stand side as you are in the away end is "the" block of flats in "fools and horses" If your into your "STREET ART" there is loads to see in the Ashton area as we have just celebrated the upfest in BS3 Bring your camera and turn up early if you want to take any photo's Pubs possibly best one are in the cumberland road basin area novia scotia pump house and the cottage. Leave your car there and walk to the ground Buy your match day programme before you enter the away end. BBC Radio station is radio Bristol which has frequencies and 94:9 and DAB and 95:5. In 2017/18 3,106 aston villa fans visited Ashton Gateand the season before 2,551 villa fans made the trip I see the allocation this season is 2,700 and I don't think this will be changed A final reminder that there has been no pay on the day for any away fans this season or last season I don't think that will be changed,so please buy your tickets in advance Can you please circulate to other aston villa forums and message boards as well as other aston villa followers If you want any further local info,don't be afraid to ask.

    So much for improving from Yeovil like Bruce promised. Players out of position again and lumping the ball against 10 men. So far both keepers look a disaster. An experienced championship keeper wouldn't have been hard to sign but so far the signs are we fecked up. We don't have time to wait for either keeper to improve. Unbeaten at least but serious improvement needed.

    Thanks dl for the advice which of course i'll take under consideration. I'm that far down the line of trying to use the system to my advantage and being a good little boy that I will await the outcome of the Ombudsman. However as you say there are other options to consider if I get no joy through the system and I will explore those when the time comes. It is dreadful however to have to even consider those when then it is such a cut and dried case but I guess that it the way society is going now. There is another option. I could rent my property to a real hard ass who will not take what I have and will fight fire with fire. That would also give me an independant witness if my neighbour repeats what she and her family have been doing to me. The location of my property is good (very close to all amenities of my town and still quite sought after). Even if it wasn't people have great difficulty in getting mortgages now and any rentals in our town are usually snapped up pretty quickly so that may be an alternative for me if all else fails?

    Nope. If he was bought in addition to a Defour or something like that it would be one thing, but it's clear to me that Lerner will only sanction one buy. With that being the case, I don't want him either.......but I will support him if signed. He's not the answer to our problems. He could be the backup to our answer though.

    My views on immigration are simple, until we have homes for our homeless, enough work for the unemployed, enough money in the pot to treat the sick and enough money for pensioners to keep warm in the winter then our borders should be closed, also we need to stop sending aid to other countries until we have looked after our own. Once this is all sorted then we can help others.

    nothing changes the fact these people are nothing but a drain on society and are living off our taxes, the one couple who were claiming over 1500 quid a month in benefits (fraudulently) and then have the gall to complain because their benefits have been stopped/reduced it stupid and makes a mockery of the welfare system. when the young father was complaining he was drinking beer for fucks sake! From what i saw most on the show were physically fit and able to work but preferred to sit on their garden walls drinking kestrel super while bemoaning how hard done by they are when none of em have done a honest days work in their fecking lives!! f*ck em! kids should be taken off em and place in care to break the cycle of Feral parents raising feral children!

    Mate I'm 37 and apart from some good moments over the years it's been a roller coaster watching supporting Villa but I wouldn't have it any other way. I can hold my head up and say I'm no glory hunter and support the team my family have supported for five generations and never ever would I change

    First half is one that will live ling in the memory as one of the worst performances i have ever seen from a Villa Team, 2nd half we were all over em and deserved the win we could have got had Gabby not been off side! Lambert made errors in the first half but fair play he got it bang on in the 2nd period! lets face it, we did to them what they did to us last season! very happy with the point and on wards we go!

    I felt the most inspired sub was the Delph one. Not that the other subs were ineffective. I just felt his involvement meant Westwood and El ahmadi could move forward to more advanced roles so much so that they both scored. Delph is easily our best midfielder, now all we need is another decent midfielder to accompany him, maybe even Bacuna.

    Nice to see you back and you've not lost your aggressive manner either good to see. I'm quite happy for Lerner to stay, doesn't bother me in the slightest it's nice to see that we have some sort of plan now rather than just cutting and hoping. And yes we have progressed and that's actually a statistical fact

    Maybe it's because I am a bit older than some on here, and perhaps it's because I'm from south brum (blue nosed area) and I have grown up with bluenoses kicking off all the times against villa often when they have bigger numbers and even when villa lads have been with their misses or even with kids. So I mean it when I say f*ck SMALL HEATH. !! I would love that poxy sh*t hole of a club to fold.

    i dont hate small heath as a club, it is good to have local rivalries, its just their supporters are a bunch of :wank2: they are scummy bullying pricks, fuking jog bottoms fake tops and shitty pendents, living in south brum all the local pubs are full of them, what a bunch of useless twats. a wise old man told me something when i was young that just about sums it up, if you can afford to go watch football you'll go down the villa, if you cant afford it, end up on the dole and being one of the dregs of society you'll end up going down small heath. how true he was.

    So who wrote that rule anyway?? You ask anyone who's involved in football and they'll say that the england managers job is the biggest in football and it'll remain that way probably till fergie retires and the utd will be fought over. And another reason why english aren't arrogant and americans are. Who takes a language uses it then changes how words are spelt then tries to tell the country who invented the language they are wrong. ;) LOL
