    Playoffs

    Derby at Wembley it is then....would have been my choice ( finishing 2nd would have been preferable ) I'm optimistic though under no illusions that they are a threat.
  2. Over both games Albion's plan seemed to be stop us at all costs and hope to nick a goal, nearly worked as well. We had 73% possession last night, its hard to break down a 10 man defence.
  3. That didn't do the old ticker any good but over the two games I think we deserved it.
  4. Their attack is severely weakened, they can't sit back again and they have a suspect defence when they don't stick 10 behind the ball. A disciplined professional performance is called for, no mistakes or poor discipline and take the chances we are bound to get. It's far from over but we are in the stronger position at the moment. UTV
  5. They played for a draw and had the added bonus of being gifted a goal, they can't sit back in the next game, they have a suspect defence and two of their best strikers are suspended....the tie is ours for the taking, whether we take it or not is another matter. I went to the George Tapps in Bournemouth town centre for the game, sat in front of me were a young couple (the only Albion fans in the place ) when Villa scored the whole place went ape sh*t, must have been 30 of us. We are a giant of a club and its about time we started acting like it on the pitch. UTV
  6. I watched him being interviewed after possibly his first game for us, talking of the great feeling of wearing "The Claret and Blue and walking out at Villa Park". I got the feeling that playing for this grand old club felt like an honour to him. He was rated as a likely England regular when he started at Ipswich and its been plain to see why in his performances for us. He's a quality player who has in half a season served this club better than most of the "Pro's" we've had on our books in recent years, I hope his injury problems are finally behind him and wish him well wherever he ends up.

    Thanks, best of luck to you next season when hopefully we'll be playing each other again.

    Playoffs

    Here we go again, lets hope that like last season a team that was struggling before hitting an amazing run of form is the one that is promoted.
  9. I'm hiding behind the sofa for a few weeks, I don't want to look.
  10. There are 4 that I think most of us see as our key players, Grealish, Mings, McGinn and Tammy. Tammy didn't feature at Leeds so this rule wouldn't affect him, I'd omit all 4 on Sunday. Assuming Kodjia and Steer aren't fit that would still keep us well within this rule and still allow 3 others to be rested if not fully fit.
  11. Smithy more or less confirmed McGinn will be left out of this one, I hope one or two others are as well.
  12. We can't catch Albion now, the winning record has gone ( better now than in May ) so play a weakened team against Norwich, today has proven its just not worth the risk. 13 days until the first play off game to get our walking wounded match fit.
  13. That could turn out to be an expensive point, Steer injured, Kodjia injured and El Ghazi likely to be suspended though from the footage I've seen I'm not sure he touched him. One plus point would be if we end up facing Leeds at Wembley our lot will certainly need no motivation.
  14. We are fielding a full strength team, looks like we are going for it and with Albion at Derby next week who may well need something to finish 6th another couple of wins could well take us into 4th and the bonus of the 2nd leg of the semi at Villa Park.
