    Time for change ?

    Its from Football Insider. Be surprised if there is anything in it. I did suggest the other day having someone coming in on a short term basis in an advisory role to Smith. Otherwise I don't see how sacking Smith with 6 games to go helps.
  3. LIVERPOOL vs ASTON VILLA Pre and post match discussion, live chat and analysis. 2019/20 Premier League Season - Match 33. Sunday, 05th July 2020. Anfield, Liverpool. 16:30 Kick-Off (UK Time)
  4. It felt like yesterday was us throwing in the towel. Wolves never got out of 2nd gear and we never looked like really scoring once. I can't see us only being a point behind 17th once the next two games are done with. If we are, then maybe we have a real outside chance but I am resigned to a season in the Championship next season now.
  5. Decent first half but second half has tended to be our downfall. big second half - need to remain solid but also actually test the Wolves keeper

  7. Love your confidence Larry. I fear the worse for this one.
  8. Aston Villa vs Wolverhampton Wanderers ASTON VILLA v WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS Pre and post match discussion, live chat and analysis. 2019/20 Premier League Season - Match 32. Saturday, 27th June 2020. Villa Park, Birmingham. 12:30 Kick-Off (UK Time)
  9. My ratings: Wesley (£22.5M) 2/5 - Has all the attributes to be a success and may come back a much better player now he knows what is required of him but based on what we have seen so far, he must do better. Mings (£20.07M) 3/5 - I love his commitment and how he has brought fans close to the players again but as someone has already touched upon, he makes far to many errors. Luiz (£15.12M) 3/5 - I am a strong believer that in a top side, Luiz will flurish. Before lock down i thought he was too slow on the ball but since the Premier League has returned he seems to be quicker and stronger. By far our best player out of the three games since lockdown, so far. Will have a bright future in the game. Targett (£13.95M) 3/5 - The left back has done what i expected of him. He reminded me of Warnock at first and seemed to be too quick to go off injured when he didn't fancy a battle but seems more comfortable now he has settled. Konsa (£11.97M) 2/5 - The future of our club. Regardless of what league we are in next season, I think he will have a part to play. Still has a lot to learn though. Nakamba (£10.8M) 2/5 - Growing on me everytime i see him. Another who could be a good asset but I wouldn't be surprised if someone came in for him if we went down. Samatta (£9.45M) 1/5 - Still has everything to prove. Too early to really judge him properly. Trezeguet (£9M) 0/5 - A complete waste of space. He may come good but i dont think he will. Had reports suggesting he would leave this summer if Villa were relegated. Id be looking to move him on regardless. Never a Premier League player based on what we have witnessed. El Ghazi (£8.10M) 1/5 - The effort is there at times but he goes missing far too much for my liking. He may improve but again, he isnt Premier League quality right now. Heaton (£7.92M) 4/5 - Losing him and his experience was such a major blow for Villa. Engels (£7.20M) 2/5 - I believe, once fit, he should be in our starting eleven. I think he has unfairly been treated at times due to the odd mistake when others who play in his position have made a lot more mistakes and continue to play. Jota (£4.05M) 0/5 - Never was going to be good enough and I feel he was only brought in to make up the squad numbers. Could be important in the Championship next season, if thats were we end up. Hause (£3M) 1/5 - Not Premier League quality by any stretch of the imagination.
  10. It is hard to look past relegation now. Players like El Ghazi and Trezeguet are not good enough for this level - at the moment and its costing us having to rely on the same players who are becoming tired or even market out of games. Yet another error on top of that with the goal we conceded just about sums up our season.
  11. Rate our signings I have seen a fair few blame the recruitment this season on the position we currently find ourselves in and although I agree that we are light in some areas (the wings) I do believe, if players play in their correct positions and we play a formation that suits them, then we would be better off this season. Anyway, I just wanted to gage how people had rated those who have signed for us this season. Give me a rating out of 5 for each player and why you have given them that rating. Players signed this year: Wesley (£22.5M) Mings (£20.07M) Luiz (£15.12M) Targett (£13.95M) Konsa (£11.97M) Nakamba (£10.8M) Samatta (£9.45M) Trezeguet (£9M) El Ghazi (£8.10M) Heaton (£7.92M) Engels (£7.20M) Jota (£4.05M) Hause (£3M) *Figures from TransferMarkt.co.uk
  12. I used to be like that. Would take me 2-3 days to get over a game. I do get annoyed but I find i can move on a little quicker than I used to be able to. Like as much as I want us to stay up, i don't feel like it will be the end of the world if we went down. I loved our time in the Championship - I just hated all the mid-week games.
  13. As I mentioned in my match report, if it was any other manager they would have been crucified for that performance. You sum it up when you say, all you ask is that we scrap. We have a go but too may times against the better sides we have shown them too much respect and lost games that potentially we could have stole points from.
