  1. I'll be happy with a point while hoping to do what Wolves did up there recently yet not overly upset by a narrow defeat...as long as its not the sort of defeat we've suffered on our last two visits to a top 6 club. UTV
  2. Their income is already dropping, I think the financial playing field in football is finally levelling out. No more top 4 who are virtually guaranteed CL football and TV revenue in the PL making a CL placing being the icing on the cake rather than the be all and end all.
  3. Don't disagree with any of that Mark though I would add that not only has he recently signed a new ( 5 year I think ) contract but we kept hold of Barry and Benteke without the luxury of multi billionaire owners for longer than the players wanted to remain. If he goes I expect it will only be at a time that suits us, for at least the next 18 months we need to keep hold of our best players while the club re-establishes itself in the PL.
  4. Man Utd are in decline and likely to be changing manager yet again, Aston Villa are moving forward with seriously rich owners and looking to join that top 6 in the near future. He's had a decent start to his premier league career, if he spends the next 18 months proving he is the real deal he'll find the top clubs want him not clubs in decline.
  5. Makes sense, look at McCartney, ate meat and sung Hey Jude, went veggie and did the Frog Chorus.
  6. Its a pity a few of them don't post anymore, maybe he ran off to join the Monty Python chapter of the Lumberjacks.
  7. Anybody reading that who doesn't know Peever will now think he's gay.🏳️‍🌈
  8. Mings has many great qualities but he has dropped a few clangers. Despite his age injuries mean he still doesn't have much game time, and very little at this level. Hopefully he'll wise up sooner rather than later regarding when to play it and when to whack it into row z.
  9. Just spent the afternoon driving the coast road between Bridport and Weymouth when I Feel Free came on the radio, the perfect song for driving a road like that. What a band Cream were. RIP Ginger Baker
  10. 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 ! It's been hard to accept some of the terrible decisions refs have made in the past and even with technology some decisions are debatable but teams being robbed of points is no longer acceptable.
  11. Watched the 2nd half on line.... Excellent result, good performance where the biggest difference for me was we were clinical for once and Norwich were not, largely due to us not gifting them anything. At least not until the 87th minute. UTV
  12. I've just been reading that Norwich have 9 players injured and will be handing a debut to their 3rd choice keeper. I don't know how many of the 9 are first choice. No more excuses, we have to start winning games.
  13. Next two games are against the two teams directly above us, we have to win.
  14. 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.
  15. I'd sacrifice the position you have Marv in for a second striker, I know its a bit of a cliché but attack is the best form of defence. We can't counter effectively because we aren't clinical enough, we sit too deep and invite pressure. If Wesley wasn't so isolated we might keep the ball in the opposition half a lot more.
