    Its my big worry but i read something today that made me realise that maybe I am being a little harsh. Its our first year back in the Premier League and if we average around 1 point a game, we should do enough to stay up. We have 22 points from 23 games so we are just below that at the moment. It would be nice to see us show the same fight and desire as the sides in and around us though.

    Welcome to the forum Rocky. Fully agree with your post...I hate sacking managers, it does take time and I also have major doubts about Dean's suitability but really hope he proves us wrong.

    I am not totally sold on Dean as manager, nice guy, but maybe a bit affable for me.....but he needs more time, However, I think 4-3-3 with our squad has been naive, 3-4-3 looks a bit better. However, I am not in favour of changing managers too often either, some sort of momentum needs to build, relationships need to gel and stability cannot be under estimated....I do hope he makes it. New players coming in are bound to help, if we sign the right ones.....Pepe Reina was an inspired signing IMO....and fingers crossed on Samatta. I think we need a powerful midfielder too, to help give us domination in the middle.

    What a massive win, well done, good spirit shown to come back from a goal down.

    I don't think I've ever been so pissed off with the signing of a player as I am with the signing of Drinkwater. In the last 12 months he's been nicked more times by the police than he's been picked by his manager.

    i see wesley did his favorite trick again, missed a sitter from 2 yards out, and i say again, elmanky was a waste of space, we need to spend again at the next window, and clear some of this lot out, for decent premiership players, what we have is fairly good championship players,

    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--

    Or to put it another way....would I swap our player of the year for a player who wasn't our player of the year and another player who the buying club don't think is as good as the player we have....No I wouldn't.

    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.

    Agreed Elmo and Taylor will certainly Imo stay this season and I believe that at the end of the season they are then out of contract and they can then be released. To big a job to completely overhaul the squad this summer. But a good start has been made.

    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.

    Can feel your frustration 100% mate. However, Villa Park has been toxic for a long time now. It has achieved nothing. We all love the Villa and all want the best regardless of our views. So why don't we just get behind the lads? What do we have to lose? We are loosing now anyway and what WE, AS FANS (myself included) currently do isn't helping anyone. Let me ask you a question and let's take Villa out of the equation. Let's say your son played for a pro club but their fans were toxic. Would you want him breaking through at that club knowing that the fans reaction could totally ruin his confidence and then career?

    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.
