  1. Former Aston Villa manager Ron Saunders has died at the age of 87, the club has announced. Saunders guided Villa to the top flight in 1974 with promotion in his first season in charge. He also won two League Cups during his eight years at Villa Park. "Ron Saunders died at 15:00 GMT on Saturday and his family have asked for their privacy to be respected at such a difficult time," a club statement said. Saunders ended his managerial career at West Bromwich Albion, retiring in 1987. Villa players will wear black armbands and hold a period of applause when they host Leicester City in the Premier League on Sunday. RIP
  2. Ratings in the paper suggest Mings had another poor game. Personally I'd be tempted to try Konsa & Engels together.
  3. Bitterly disappointed, story of my life as a Villa fan.
  4. Would assume el ghazi is a doubt after going off at man u. Regarding the game would be delighted with a draw.
  5. Agreed, last time we did this we gave Paul Lambert a big bumper contract and we know how that turned out. We are two results away from being in trouble or likewise pushing for the top six. Personally would have waited to see how the season panned out before handing out a four year deal.
  6. Very good point, never doubted we could get a result.
  7. Man Utd are a poor team compared to the one I grew up watching (Fergie's 90's). However Villa generally roll over for the big boys, therefore I expect the same again today. Man U to win 2/3-0. Will be delighted to be proved wrong and would view a point as a very good result. Fingers crossed.
  8. Massive 3 points when you look at our next 3 games.
  9. As already stated, but after today's results we need the 3 points.
  10. Typifies the arrogance of Man Utd, why would he want to sign for them?, utter shambles and currently living off past glories with nothing in the present to point to future success. I would expect clubs like Liverpool to be interested if he continues with his present form, rather than a rudderless team like Man Utd. Unfortunately history suggests if a big club comes calling he will go, sadly.
  11. Anyone see the 95th minute penalty decision that gifted Liverpool a win yesterday ? It was such a blatant dive it needed score cards not VAR ! Agreed, from a completely neutral point of view my immediate thought was dive, no way a penalty. BS stoppage time penalty at Anfield, some things never change.
  12. Unfortunately it doesn't appear to be working. I reference the McGinn goal versus Burnley, I was celebrating a goal left the room came back about four minutes later to then hear it had been disallowed. I am now hesitant to celebrate because i'm waiting to double check everything is okay and it counts. Which for an entertainment business is ridiculous, much like the standard of referring in the so called 'best league in the world'.
  13. 'Match of the day', bring it on. 👏
  14. Six games in and already at the must win game stage. Didn't quite envisage this at the start of the season.
  15. I just find it all very frustrating, there's a fourth official and VAR yet no one picks up these incidents. This is adding to the psychological pressure that is building on the Villa players, already the Burnley game is a must win.
  16. Complete ineptitude from the officials, why don't they know the rules?, these mistakes are costing Villa big time.
  17. 1-0 up opposition down to ten men, only going to be winner. Not when Villa are the opposition, absolutely fuming about this result. If we cannot get at least a point from these situations we are going down, simple. Completely unacceptable.
  18. Not so much the 3 defeats in 4 but rather the teams that have beaten us. We need to be getting points from the Bournemouth and Palace matches as these are teams that Imo will be struggling come the seasons end. It is concerning with no real options I can see available to DS to mix things up in attack. Really need 3 points from the hammers, certainly cannot afford another defeat.
  19. Superb result, appreciate the level of opposition but Villa have struggled so much lately against the lower league clubs. However we have on this occasion got the result I expect against a team like Crewe. 👏
  20. 👏, most excellent result and generally a very good performance . Wesley up and running and points column now ticking over .
  21. Unfortunately can't see this one ending well for us, if I was a betting man I would put my money on an Everton win. Getting anything from this will be a bonus IMO. Fingers crossed.
  22. Thank you, unfortunately Wesley is having a mare. Daniel Sturridge: Ex-Liverpool striker arrives in Turkey before expected Trabzonspor move Think that boat has sailed, is Llorente available after leaving spuds?
  23. They come from the mummy horse.
  24. Worried no, concerned yes. In another topic I suggested we needed another winger and striker, this area already appears to be a problem. Wesley appears to be struggling and unfortunately there doesn't appear to be an alternative, Kodjia is injury prone (currently out injured) and has no prior PL experience. Leaving Davis as the only other option, who has the same issues as Kodjia. The same situation applies to the wingers where Jota is the only other option to either Trez or El G. Losing at home to Bournemouth was massive, we need to be banking three points against these teams. I'm concerned management have not recruited accordingly to have sufficient competition in these areas. Going to have to hope as they play together more they improve on the goal scoring front.
  25. Bad result. On this evidence it's going to be a long season. Hopefully we can get something from Everton.
