  1. 3 defeats in 4, I'd be lying if I said I wasn't worried. We need a performance and a victory against West Ham.
  2. That decision at the weekend is one of the worst I have ever seen and the idea that it can't be corrected because the Ref had blown is another piece of idiocy. Fair enough if a ref blows and play stops or players pause but he whistles as Lansbury is shooting, nobody had a chance to react to the whistle.
  3. Well done Villa, too often in recent seasons we've come unstuck when fielding a much changed team. I guess this is what results in having genuine competition for places instead of squad players who fill in when required.
  4. Likely to be a few changes in this game with Several new signings barely featuring, if playing at all. Whatever the line up only a win is acceptable against a league 2 team that has lost twice in its first 5 games.
  5. Thank god that monkey is off our back, I'd noticed a few articles talking about this game being Grealish's 20th PL game without a win or Villa not having won a PL game since Feb 2016. It didn't take a genius to spot where the media were heading should the winless run continue. 3 games in, we've shown we can compete in this league with this team that you'd hope will get better as they adapt to the league and each other. UTV
  6. Two defeats and 3 of the 5 goals conceded were beyond sloppy, I don't know whether to be worried because they were sloppy or optimistic because even amateurs wouldn't be that sloppy very often. After giving Spurs a scare and gifting Bournemouth a two goal lead before playing them off the park I don't know whether to worry or not. As for Sturridge I wanted him in the summer and want him even more now...unfortunately its not going to happen as he has just signed for Trabzzonspor, we'd best hope our players find their shooting boots and soon.
  7. I was really impressed with Heaton, Mings and Engels. I thought we got sloppier as the game went on simply because you can't cede that much possession against a team as good as Spurs without tiring more than they do. Wesley needs to stay on his feet, he looked poor but with so little service or even time in the opposition box its too soon to judge him. I was concerned at our inability to hold onto the ball for any length of time, but it was one of the best teams in Europe so again too soon to judge. We look solid at the back, that's a good start. UTV
  8. The players released have not been taken on by other PL clubs so it seems that first decision of the summer was right. We have created competition for every position. I would have been happier with a another ( prolific ) striker but when asked about that yesterday Smith said he had plenty of goal scorers in the team so he wasn't too concerned. Davis like Wesley has the ability to bring others into the game and Kodjia, Grealish, McGinn, Hourihane, Al Ghazi, Jota and Trezuget are all capable of scoring on a regular basis. I'm optimistic but only time will tell how well we have recruited.
  9. I won't be surprised to see us get something out of this game.
  10. I keep reading we are still after him and it makes no sense, we've just signed Luiz and Nakamba who play in that position and have no shortage of central midfielders be they defensive, attacking, box to box or any other adjective people care to attach to them.
  11. Always nice to have a prolific striker on board but we have a lot of players who will get into or close to double figures if played regularly.
  12. I know its a friendly but a 3-1 win at the home of last seasons 3rd placed bundesliga team is a decent result. I'll be happy with the same result next weekend and with Deano in charge I don't doubt that will be our intent. UTV
  13. My guess would be that a few of the signings will be introduced slowly and that we might not change too much straight away. I'd suggest Steer Elmo Engels Mings Targett Hourihane El Ghazi McGinn Grealish Jota Wesley But with competition for every spot the only ones I'm convinced will start unless injured are Mings, McGinn, Grealish and Wesley.
  14. We signed a lot of crap that summer, a club without any off field direction that had been sinking for years and had Sherwood in charge, a man who'd never signed a player before he came here....I'd like to think we are a completely different proposition now.
  15. Its not like we have a shortage of things to talk about at the minute, I'm starting to think most Villa fans have only got something to say if we're shite...a few early season spankings and the Forum will be buzzing with people calling for Smiths head. I already have my thread prepared, it will b called....I TOLD YOU WE SHOULD HAVE KEPT BRUCE....I'll also run with it should Newcastle beat us
