    This Brexit malarky

    A United 32 county country called Ireland governed from Dublin moves a step closer.

    Derby 0-3 Aston Villa

    Still can't believe it, what a game, what a result, what a great day out at Derby, hope we keep it up. I knew things would change with the change in manager but not this much so quickly. What I noticed yesterday even when 2 up we kept attacking and going for more goals. You just know under Bruce we would of sat back at one up and then concede and either draw or loose. But anyway we've got Mcginn super John Mcginn,,,, thanks Steve.

    Doug Ellis dies aged 94

    Went down the Villa this morning to pay my final respects to Sir Doug. There wasn't that many there in the North stand car park maybe 2 or 3 hundred , The funeral cortege came in through the Trinity road gates , past the Villa Village and stopped for 2 minutes behind the North stand where the slope is towards the turnstiles. Then most people walked behind the cars down witton lane to Aston Church , where for some reason dougs coffin stayed in the car for about half an hour before it was taken in. Then me and my mate Dave and Jarl a west brom fan from work went for a few pints in the Aston Social , I hadn't had anything to eat but was able to buy a sausage baggette in there for two quid. Maybe i am a hypocrite , as its not that long ago i took part in an Ellis out protest march , holding an Ellis out banner from that very church up to Trinity Road

    Derby 0-3 Aston Villa

    Getting the train at ten on Saturday for this , only takes half an hour , I plan to drink in the town well away from the Villa rabble in packed designated pubs. This will be a good pointer /test to see if we really have improved under Dean Smith or do we have to wait until January when he can make some changes to the playing staff. I am hoping Bolasie can start this and play the whole game ready for the Blues . Hope jack doesn't get booked , if he does he will miss the Blues match . My main worry for this match is the weak links in our team ,that is the 2 full backs and the keeper , not much smith can do about them until he can replace them , unfortunately i fear Derby may take full advantage of that.

    Aston Villa 2-0 Bolton

    couldn't get to this match as i was flying back from Spain while it was on , so i watched it on sky when i got in not knowing the score. Another improved performance under the new manager , Jack Grealish looks to be getting back to his best in a free central role where he found plenty of space to score our first goal. Still cant understand why Bruce thought it would be better to play him on the wing , what a waste I thought 2unzabe was brilliant at the back which makes the decision by Bruce to persist with Jedinak as centre back even more difficult to understand I like Dean Smiths idea of playing a midfielder in the holding midfield role. Glen Whelan or Jedinjak done ok playing there under bruce but when they got the ball they always chose the easy option of playing a simple ball sideways to the nearest Villa player ,, But in this match Hourihane looked up to see who was available ahead of him so we could quickly get the ball upfield to catch the opposition on the break , I hope he persists with this although i am thinking Bjarnasson might be better there. I can't sayi was that impressed with Kodja or Adomah on Friday night , yes they played ok but they can , should and must do better The player i was impressed with was Bolasie when he came on , now he does look a real threat ,, I can't wait to see him fully fit and playing 90 minutes

    Bannan Return

    I'd sell Grealish in January if spurs or anyone are interested and prepared to pay good money. He slows things down too much now for me. Bannan one of the best passers of the ball in Europe would be a perfect replacement. Dean Smith may think the same. But it's not just Jack I would imagine there's about ten players Dean would like to replace in January and obviously strengthen the defence.

    Bannan Return

    Barry Bannon is the one reason why I love it when Villa play Sheffield Wednesday. It is a delight and a pleasure to watch him play football. We won't get him , there would be riots in the streets of Yorkshire if they sold him to us. He's too good for the championship anyway even too good for the Premier League . He wouldn't look out of place in any of the top teams in Europe. He would even win player of the season if he played for Barcelona.

    Dean Smith

    Yes it going to take time but he'll get there. The signs are there already. Whether there is time this season remains to be seen. Massive own goal in my opinion by the new owners not to sack Bruce in the summer and bring Dean Smith in then. He would of had pre season with the players and time to implement his style of football. Instead Bruce was kept on to decimate the defence and to mess up the goalkeeping situation. He also bought in Bolasie an El-Ghazi on big wages neither of who seem capable of playing 90 minutes. Only good thing from the summer has been Bruce signing John Mcginn who has been brilliant.

    QPR 1-0 Aston Villa

    Yes very disappointing result but we played well and the signs of improvement are there. I though Jack had his best game this season, Chester's gone off the boil and the weak links are the 2 full backs and the keeper
