    Sad and not surprised at some of the reactions. Seeing utter nonsense like polls for Smith in or out, "is the job actually too much for him?", , "what is JT doing?", "he needs to turn it round quick", "dont know about 'smith out', cos who can we get?" Like it should actually be f*cking discussed, as well as other crap. First bad spell and our fans are having a breakdown.

    I personally don't get the hype in some players. I am not the biggest fan of the likes of French and Spanish leagues. So many players have come to England or even Germany and have failed to be successful but smash it in those leagues. Its partly why Ronaldo will always be above Messi for me.

    The simple way to define historic would be trophies won but if you look at how the premier league has made winning trophies almost a certainty for some for much of its 26 years I'm not convinced that can be the only measure. I don't deny my bias but if you go back to 1993 I think only Liverpool had won more than Aston Villa and although a few rich clubs have surpassed us during the era of money being king none of them were founder members of the football league, which is why Accrington Stanley and Notts County are historic clubs and Birmingham City are not. I doubt I need remind anyone on here that only one club in world football can claim to be the club that started the 1st football league, that's pretty damned historic. There was a time we could claim to be the biggest club on the planet and although we've been overtaken by a few for me there are 5 clubs that stand head and shoulders above the rest in terms of place in history....Aston Villa, Everton, Arsenal, Liverpool, Man Utd.

    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--

    19/06/2019 : Excellent news today regarding John Terry. The extension to 2021 shows ongoing commitment by JT and by AVFC too. This is the sensible way to manage the Club.

    Too much change can be a problem but we released players that were not always first choice in the championship and 4 of our first choice outfield players were on loan, we need to make more signings than is ideal but assuming we sell nobody else and we do sign Mings then eight of those who started at Wembley will still be here.

    Back. Back in the premiership at last. A great club and we should never have gone down in the first place. Been a painful time with one thing and another. Now we come back stronger and harder. Today I saw passion and strength we are the Brummie lions after all. Next season is where we belong let's roar our intent. Come on the Villa cone on. Let's make the claret and blue to be once again a force to fear. The greatest teams will shake in their boots.

    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

    They played for a draw and had the added bonus of being gifted a goal, they can't sit back in the next game, they have a suspect defence and two of their best strikers are suspended....the tie is ours for the taking, whether we take it or not is another matter. I went to the George Tapps in Bournemouth town centre for the game, sat in front of me were a young couple (the only Albion fans in the place ) when Villa scored the whole place went ape sh*t, must have been 30 of us. We are a giant of a club and its about time we started acting like it on the pitch. UTV

    When we had 10 games remaining I predicted that the teams we'd most likely trip up against were Wednesday, Rotherham and Millwall. As Dorset says, they've had some decent results lately. Plus they're fighting for survival. Will be a lot tougher than some are predicting methinks. The one we need to desperately win is Bristol.

    The mind boggles. Somebody may correct me here but aren't the UK the fifth biggest economy in the world? Ok some corporate firms may build there cars elsewhere and it may drop slightly but why the f*ck should we pay into a pot to sort other countries out before our own. Look at the struggles of the NHS etc and towns and cities around the country that have nothing in the way of jobs.

    02/04/2019 : The majority of Labour and many Tory MPs are anti-Brexit, despite standing for election in 2017 on manifestos that stated they would implement the result of the 2016 Referendum. All the manouverings in Parliament reflect their inability to agree on an alternative to remaining in the EU and none of these alternatives are what they truly believe in anyway. The only thing they do agree on is blocking a 'No Deal' Brexit. No Deal is the legal default the MPs have themselves set and which they are trying to avoid. If the EU refuses a further extension to Article 50, understandable if it will only give time for more dithering, this will leave the MPs staring at the 'cliff edge' of No Deal. In that situation I reckon the Government will Revoke Article 50, as this will be the only option left in their control. There are strategic benefits to this, namely, we retain the Rebate, our Opt-outs from the Euro and Schengen and retain our representation in Brussels. It will mean no Brexit for now, but not forever.

    You clearly know f*ck all about the early history of the islands or the Spanish and Portuguese colonisation of South America and seem to have even less of a clue about the war or the sort of people running Argentina at the time, suffice to say more than 200 British men died to spare the Islanders the same fate that had befallen countless 1000s of Argentinian civilians, many of whom still have families searching for information about their fate. I fear that there are now so many ignoramuses who have had all the privilege of been born into a democracy who like you have been taught to hate it that we are finished, I think at some point in the not too distant future you will get to live under people very much like all those mass murdering dictators you so admire...enjoy.

    With what Smith has said in the mail over the last couple of days anyone who does want 4 4 2 can forget it. I have no clue why but I think we will win 1 0 today. I think we'll take the lead early on for some reason. I'm just not happy that the season feels over in February. Would also love Hourihane to score a belter, I'm intrigued to see what his attitude and performance will be like today. Either way UTV.

    Fkin hang your heads in shame!!!! if you dont think he's had a good game then dont clap him off, no need for the boos, Its wankers like that we dont need at villa park. Boo's probably coming from fat, dyspraxic, idiots that couldnt kick a ball straight themselves!!!!

    Our fans can be right t*ts, booing Hourihane off really helpful. I've been critical of him lately but forums like this is the place for it not like that. How long before Ramsay himself will be booed if he does't immediately do well? Villa Park is poisonous.

    f**cking hell lads. I understand the LB thing, i think anybody with even half a football brain knows we needed a LB. We don't know if Hause will be a donkey as he hasn't had a chance yet and Rufustfirefly i swear your a bluenose taking the p*ss. I respect we all have an opinion and as fans we should get to moan we pay our money following the club but you don't have anything good to say mate. For to long now villa have been that club that old premier league players see as a last payout. Smith and the club have said its a rebuild and they want younger players. That can only be a good thing and I've said it before and ill say it again, a large portion of villa fans are poisonous and fickle. I've worked all around the country and when you have fans from other cities noticing this its embarrassing. The last few years the club have been run into the ground by not just players and managers but the owners to. We nearly went down sh*t street in the summer with Xia. Nobody is to big to get relegated like we did and any club can fall. We are where we are right now and if we all got behind the team a bit more you never know. I don't mean any offence by any of this either but i'm sure we can all agree that VP right now is a library and toxic one of that, some of the sh*t i hear fans say are mad. Just let Smith rebuild and hopefully it pays off lads.

    Maybe if our so called “amazing fan base” were more supportive during matches, players would feel more empowered and less terrified of making mistakes. It should be intimidating for the opponents, not our team. It’s not rocket surgery!

    If Hull can hit the kind of form that takes them from the bottom of the table to competing for the play offs then we can hit the kind of form that takes us from competing for the play offs to getting into them, there is no hiding from the result or performance at Wigan and I'm hoping it might just be the rocket up the arse they all need.

    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.

    Some folk need to pull their heads out from up their arse, key injuries and no cover in the back positions have cost us dearly. None of that can be down to DS, that's down to bad luck and p*ss poor planning from the previous manager. Give the guy a chance ffs!

    I respect peoples opinions on it stu and we're all supporters who love the club. Fans will always be more important than any player or manager. I just can't see how Steve Bruces decisions to not get cover at left back and centre back as well as letting Elphick go on loan and other terrible decisions can fall on Smith. You could argue that he could dip into the u23 lads but the fans would moan if that doesn't work out. We've had loads of games over the festive period with a small squad. Jack's injury isn't smiths fault either and my god have we missed him. A lot of this has been bad luck. Over Jan and the summer transfer window window he will buy his players and get rid of what he doesn't need. I really can't see how he is partly to blame mate I really can't see it. I do think villa fans are poisonous sometimes. I've worked all over the country and even other fans from other cities say the same about us. We have a brilliant history but it is history, right now we are where we are. We ain't to good for it. We've been run terribly as a club by owners and other managers. Smith is the brains behind a new project and it will take time as purslow said.

    i wondered how long it would take before some fans started to have a go at ds, ffs, this is not his team, he has not brought any players, he is still having to struggle with the crap he took over from the useless knunt sb left behind, give him a chance to do his own thing, then maybe you can judge him. you can train them, coach them, but you cant force them to do what you want them to do,, if you could there would no such thing as a good or a bad player. time will tell, but right now ds needs all the support from you that he can get.

    Surprised there wasn't more rested, there has been a few bad games and performances now but to the lads who are going on about Smith f*ck me. This isn't his team. Yes he picks the team but most people agreed when he took the job this is a long term plan. To the lads saying he talks the talk and all that jazz. Stop with the poison man, he hasnt done to bad at all until we lost 2 important players in grealish and tuanzebe. You could even say taylor as well cos let's face it hutton at left back is far from working. Let him bring in his players and give him some time. Struggling to read some of these comments on twitter and stuff I really am starting to think some villa fans are cringe worthy.

    I have to agree with the sentiment of a number on the posts here that the loan system should not form part of our future vision, unless the loan has a favourable option to buy such as the El Ghazi deal. This approach will always leave us in a transient state of constant rebuilding, never really having a settled side we can call our own. This season seems particularly fraught with the current fashion of recalling players, potentially providing us with a crisis mid-season, with the possibility of losing a striker who could easily score 30 goals for us this season. Personally I would like to see a clear route for our own academy players from the U23’s into the first team. Grealish has clearly demonstrated what can be achieved with patience and opportunity.

    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!
