  1. Transfer Window - Jan ‘18

    I don't see the point at this stage in bringing in unproven youngsters on loan, we have plenty of those our self. We end up playing a very average Onomah and help him develop while barely giving our own kid O'Hare a sniff, to me that is pointless. Only name I've seen us connected with so far that I thought would be a help is Ulloa, a decent PL record and sh*t hot in this league not so long ago.
  2. RIP Cyrille Regis

    One of those players who fans at all clubs admired, he might be a Baggies legend but it was an honour to see him pull on our shirt for a couple of years. RIP Cyrille.
  3. Aston Villa v Barnsley

    We have a decent run of games coming up, 10 games with only 1 game against another top 6 side and that's an out of form Sheffield United, no more slip ups now is the time for a winning streak. Villa 3 - Barnsley 0 UTV
  4. Nottm Forest 0-1 Aston Villa

    Well done all of them, Snodgrass was worth his MOTM award, Hogan looked lively and Birkir did well when he came on. Hopefully we have seen the worst of our injury problems and this lot can start to gel as a team, a front line of Grealish, Adomah, Snodgrass and Hogan should they get chance to keep playing together should be ripping teams apart with their movement and passing.
  5. Nottm Forest 0-1 Aston Villa

    A lot of points been dropped this weekend by those around us.
  6. Nottm Forest 0-1 Aston Villa

    Terry in for Elphick and no Jedinak not even on the bench so I assume another injury, Whelan in for him, other than that same as Bristol game. Fingers crossed for a decent performance from Whelan and a great result....0-2 Villa is my prediction. UTV
  7. Pundit SLAMS Villa

    No, but if we can't get our best players on the pitch I would acknowledge that as a major factor. I see Dean Smith been talked about again, nothing I would love more than a Villa man getting us playing attractive winning football....but we aren't Brentford or Walsall, the pressures are different as this very thread proves, Brentford are starting to climb the table because they're long term injuries are returning, our fans want Bruce sacked because we are only 5th despite most of our key players missing huge chunks of the season.

    My thoughts exactly Stu, which is why I thought the article was nonsense.
  9. Pundit SLAMS Villa

    Or great squad is what has kept us in contention, never mind Terry and Kodjia what about Jedinak, Lansbury and all the others. We ripped Bristol a new one and two of the star performers were Grealish and Hogan who have barely featured due to injury....who remembers Bruce's comments in the summer that he wanted to build the team around Grealish ? I know its not a popular opinion around here but all things considered is Bruce really doing a bad job ?

    That would be a great deal for Brighton no doubt but why would Davis want to swap a promotion chasing club for one fighting relegation and why would we accept £3 million for a player who has just signed a new contract, a player who has shown signs of becoming a major talent. If this happens it does not bode well for our future under Xia.
  11. Aston Villa 1-3 Peterborough

    No great surprise with that many changes and returning players been given a run out, Bruce has made his priority clear and as long as he achieves it this will soon be forgotten. UTV

    Tony Blair Peter Mandelson Alastair Campbell Nick Clegg Diane Abbott More a wish list than a prediction.

    I hate to break it to you Roger but Peter had the last of his summer wine last summer.
  14. Transfer Window - Jan ‘18

    Nobody springs to mind, but I don't watch other teams so I'm the last person to answer that. To be fair to Bruce and the team we are on a par with all but Wolves in the goals scored department but that clinical natural goal scorer would come in handy.
  15. Aston Villa 1-3 Peterborough

    As a kid the only live club match we ever got to watch on TV was the FA cup final, I've dreamt of watching that cup lifted by a Villa captain for nearly 50 years. I understand Bruce making changes but I don't want him sending out such a weakened side that he in effect sacrifices any ties, I haven't got another 50 years and want to see us lift it an 8th time.
