    ST Renewal

    We are now renewed - taking up a new home in the Doug Ellis upper! Getting too old to tolerate the crowds where we currently sit/stand!

    Storm Doris

    I had to avoid a couple of bins on the way to work and a few empty beer cans blew into my front garden. Absolute chaos! On a positive note, I had a couple of cardboard boxes that I needed to get rid of but dear old Doris has helped me out. If you spot a child's car seat box floating around Birmingham then that will be mine.

    Cardiff 1 Aston Villa 0

    Whilst that is looking likely let's see what new faces come in this month. We're not out of the playoff race at all yet.

    Aston Villa 3 Cardiff City 1

    Clearly Patrick being condescending regarding the previous silences he has 'had' to partake in. Almost similar to the condescending nature in the '9/11' thread... Whilst his next post mocks another member. Welcome back!

    I bet you didn't expect to fall upon the richest and most cocksure forum out there!

    Steve Bruce

    I have been calling for Steve Bruce before Lambert was hired - hope it doesn't backfire now.

    40 Jack Grealish

    No arrests were made meaning nothing illegal happened and the source (presumably the one that cashed in on the story) stated that Grealish did not use the nitrous oxide. So whilst Grealish is in the papers again for the wrong reasons all I see from this story is that Grealish waited until after the Ipswich game to celebrate his 21st. I just feel it is Jack's name that brings these non-stories rather than the actual event.

    The general discussion thread

    Too many British people think from a British law point of view. Why wouldn't we? It is all we know. There is a difference though. For one, in South America they can defend property with lethal force. So, if he did really feel like there was an intruder he had every right to fire his weapon. He will live with that mistake for the rest of his life. No amount of time inside will make him forgive himself. If he knew who it was in there then there is no reasoning anyway. It is his word against a jury that was not present throughout the event. Only he is alive who knows what happened and whether he is lying or not it is not in his hands. Based on those facts, how can we as outsiders form such a strong opinion against him? Unlike the UK where we generally deal with facts and attempt justice, SA is completely the opposite.

    40 Jack Grealish

    This sort of thing is annoying me. Grealish chooses Ireland and it is a wise decision with football the deciding factor. Grealish chooses England, the country he was born in, and it is financially motivated and football is the least of his worries. It's all bollocks. I would understand if England were successful but we aren't. Surely Ireland is the option for the less ambitious. Guaranteed starting place during qualifiers. May get to a final competition, likely not to. Still become a legend. With England, yes we generally qualify, but there is much better competition and he will have to actually develop to win a place. He could score 80 in the next 20 games and the English would still complain that 2 of those goals came against Andorra. I respect his decision and for me choosing England was not the easy decision. It may add on some '0s' to his future transfer fee but for the time being can we stop being so cynical and try and enjoy the young lad developing at the club he loves?

    Ashley Westwood

    Completely wrong topic to discuss this but do we? He offered very little. Benteke I would agree as Gestede cannot hold the ball up for sh*t.

    Ashley Westwood

    Appalling on corners. Agree. Had an argument with a lad who has sat next to me for years today. He celebrated when Westwood went off, I asked why? All he could muster up upon further questioning was 'he's sh*t'. Why is he? That is all I'm asking. On average he plays more key passes per game than any other Villa player. Delph was rated higher than him by fans yet created little, got booked easily and put us in trouble often with poor turns. Gana and Veretout were equally as bad as Westwood today yet they don't get any stick?! Another easy target for Villa fans. Why not target the anger at the manager? The one who has no tactical knowledge. The one who chooses to place Westwood on corners time and time again, like Lambert. The one who plays 5-3-2 at home against Stoke in a must win game. The one who thinks Lescott for Grealish is a master change because it worked against championship opposition. The one who said we would never be in a relegation fight while he was manager. Chelsea are awful at the moment, luckily for them they have Villa next.

    40 Jack Grealish

    I believe England was always his choice but he felt bad after playing for Ireland at junior level. So by attempting not to disrespect Ireland, I feel he has by allowing it to drag on for so long. Personally, I glad he chose England and hope he can make an impact in the future.
