  1. LC: Aston Villa (1) v Leicester (1) ASTON VILLA vs Leicester City Pre & Post match discussion, live chat and analysis. 2019/20 League Cup Semi Final League 2 Tuesday, 28th January 2020 Villa Park, Birmingham 19.45 Kick-Off (UK time)
  2. The scenes at full time. Its moments like that, that make football the sport it is. I love this game! Rich you say Guilbert is at blame - I disagree. We have three centre halves against one centre forward. Guilbert should only be there to offer back up. I would put blame on Konsa. I do have to question Hause also. I said it after the last game. He gives the ball away too much. He clearly isnt comfortable with the ball at his feet. Hause struggled to get a game in the Championship but is somehow good enough in this league? Im not so sure. I thought Marvelous and Targett were fantastic. Potentially their best games in a Villa shirt. Reina adds so much also. He is probably better on the floor than Heaton also.
  3. I think the idea is we pay a fee (similar to the one we would pay should we loan him) with a 6 month contract. With an option to extend if we stay up.

  5. We still havent got the right balance. We look better defensively but have nothing going forward. I am unsure what the answer is. We did look a lot better once the young American lad came on though. We had some legs and presence up top.

    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.
  7. Talk today is they are saying he can go... for £10M... Although there are a lot of reports that we have gone back in for Giroud.
  8. It appears it is not an option going by Woy's comments today.
  9. I think that its been looked at so wrong. People think goals are an issue. I disagree. Conceeding is an issue because we don't hold the ball up top which puts so much pressure on the defence. I honestly believe that not signing Benteke on loan will be a missed opportunity.
  10. Kodjia is off to Qatar then...
  11. Bit of a concerning tweet also: Part of me feels like this is the year we got relegated all over again except with a more likeable side. We seem to be buying unproven players who will probably jump ship IF we go down and have decent careers abroad.
  12. I can't see this lad from Genk being done before the weekend IF he needs a work permit like so many are reporting.
  13. We spoke about the games over christmas being must win. These next three really are.
  14. We knew in October that we needed another striker in January. Why are we two weeks in and only just coming close to signing one?
  15. Villa are being linked with Slimani who is currently at Monaco and has 7 goals and 7 assists in 13 appearances this season. Flopped at Leicester though. Thoughts?

    I said this a while ago but apparently he has no intention of leaving China unless he is sacked.
  17. The Benteke rumour will not go away. How many of you still believe he could do a job for us?

    My biggest issue with Smith this season is the fact that he speaks very well at times about the game. He isnt scared to say when players are making errors and rightly so. The issue lies in the fact that these issues continue. Mings, Hause, Konsa, Targett, Guilbert and Engels have all made the same mistakes this season on more than one occasion and they are ALL Smiths signings. Time is running out for us to learn from these mistakes. Before we know it we will be back playing Friday evening football again in the Championship.
  19. Couldn't have summarised it up any better myself.
  20. Brighton vs ASTON VILLA Pre & Post match discussion, live chat and analysis. 2019/20 Premier League - Matchday 23 Saturday, 18th January 2020 American Express Community Stadium 15.00 Kick-Off (UK time)
  21. Our weakness has been our midfield all season IMO. McGinn started bright and seemed to run out of steam and instead of being rested, Smith just seemed to keep pushing and pushing. Luiz would look quality in a decent side. He plays the way Man City do and thinks he has too much time on the ball. Nakamba may come good but looks like a hot head who runs around like a little child at the moment. Lansbury is not good enough for the Premier League Hourihane is too hit and miss. Maybe a decent option from the bench. Drinkwater clearly isnt match fit. He was so off the pace it was embarrassing for Dean Smith who thought it was a good idea to throw him straight in at the deep end.
  22. I was one of those fans who left after 18 minutes. I can take a defeat. One thing i cant take is amateur mistakes a real lack of fight from a professional footballer. If that makes me a crap fan - so be it. I won't lose any sleep over it. Manchester City on their day are probably one of the best footballing sides in Premier League history so they don't need the help we seemed to give them yesterday. Mr Smith has a lot to answer for and to come out with crap about having injuries and how much the opposition side is worth is embarrassing, even for him,

  24. Agreed. Will be a real test for this new 5-3-2 system also. I am a strong believer that if you dont give Man City time on the ball (press high) they can be found out. They love a slow, patient approach but I don't feel we have the players to press correctly as a unit.
