  1. Shrewsbury 2 Aston Villa 1

    I've only read a match report in the paper, 0-0 until we made 8 changes around the hour mark, its a preseason run out and nothing more.
  2. Transfer Speculation Summer 2017

    I was surprised when we were linked to Whelan as they both play a similar role so this would make sense.

    Old timer, I was only 16....from 1977 I'd worked a paper round so I could get up to Brum and watch as many games as possible, I'm just glad they had the decency to wait until I was working and able to get to every game before they started winning trophies.
  4. Missing posters?

    He works at Longleat, Jeff's a very likeable bloke I got to spend a bit of time with him in the Addies. He was raised in Wiltshire but his family are Brummie exiles if I remember correctly, he'd waited a long time to be a season ticket holder and he picked just about the worst time to do it. Not surprised he got disheartened.
  5. Transfer Speculation Summer 2017

    John Terry coming here didn't overly surprise me, always struck me as a man motivated by a challenge but it seems the links to Hart are getting stronger and that would surprise me with him age wise been at his peak. I'll be delighted if it happens but its great just to be linked seriously to players of this stature, we are on the up.
  6. John Terry

    Or he really wanted to play for a big club before he retired
  7. John Terry

    Always a chance that a signing wont work out no matter what the age, JT was never blessed with blistering pace or sublime footballing ability. It was mental strength and leadership that set him apart from most and the man must still have some ambition to achieve something by coming here. As for turning down PL clubs because he didn't want to play against Chelsea.....if I were a gambling man I'd stick a few quid on us playing them in a cup this season.
  8. Favourite Aston Villa shirts

    I like the black away kit.
  9. No old boys

    No book needed, I have a memory for unfunny sh*t........like the time a few years back a bloke turned up on here calling himself Rocky66, lived out in the Cotswolds somewhere did Rocky, went to the games with his daughter and had a pathological hatred of Albrighton. I made the mistake of saying I thought Albrighton had a decent game at Anfield and found myself on the receiving end of a torrent of abuse before Rocky disappeared. How funny is that ?
  10. Transfer Speculation Summer 2017

    I could overlook the way he left if I thought he would improve us, I can't say I've paid much attention to him since he left but none of the clubs he's played for since leaving us seemed eager to keep him. Boro want rid despite paying £7m for him 2 years ago, now they'll let him go on a free. That doesn't fill me with much confidence. I wouldn't sign him.

    RIP Brian Cant....a reworking of a childhood classic
  12. Transfer Speculation Summer 2017

    Not if they've got a fit wife they wont All joking aside I'll be delighted if we sign him, Bruce has stopped us folding at the first sign of danger, but I still don't see a real leader out on that pitch, Terry should add that.
  13. Deceased List, 2017

    Slightly delayed there Pat, he died 6 years ago.
  14. The Holiday / Short Break thread

    Good to see Corny is back on line, I hope that means all went well.
  15. Transfer Speculation Summer 2017

    There is always the chance if he came here it would not work though with his leadership qualities and commitment I think it would probably be a good move, as for the cash that's the clubs concern. He has options, he could go abroad and earn a fortune, he could stay in the PL at a mid table club and achieve nothing or he could come here and try and get us promoted, who knows he might just enjoy the challenge. If he does come here it wont be for the money.
