  1. Such an amazing night for the Villa faithful! done it again. We're off back to wembley... just a shame we're likely not to beat Man City. But should be a good day for the supporters.
  2. He was linked to us back in 2011 I believe to replace Gerald, he seemed quite interested apparently but was put off by the lack of spending money from Lerner at the time. I feel if he had came in then, things would have turned out so much different.
  3. Yeah I'm going... but sitting in the home end lol. I don't think we'll win I think we'll make a lot of changes ahead of this and i think Fulham will really go for this. I don't expect us to see Grealish.
  4. Danny would be good with his experience, something that really we need at the moment. However the guy is really injury prone, if we signed him then I still feel we'd to buy another striker.
  5. I've heard whispers that things aren't going well for the Derby boss at the moment and there's talk there considering going for John Terry, so we could soon be losing JT.
  6. Do you a reckon draw is enough to keep him in the job? is it safe to say that maybe even Deano wasn't sure if we were prepared to go up. I mean maybe when he came in his first season he thought his job was to try and finish as high as possible and then build for promotion in the following season with a stable squad. Instead we got promoted with a squad full of loanees who weren't expected to stay and players not ready for the top flight. Come the new season Deano build new squad from scratch which as seen before by Fulham doesn't work.
  7. Couldn't agree more I love Deano done amazing job getting us to the top flight, but is he a top flight manager?... by the looks things no. You can't spend £120million and be sitting 18th with just five wins all season. Big Sam not fan but he'd keep us no problem and stablise us for at least a couple of seasons.
  8. Yeah having a lot of work being done at the cottage. Another year we would have been given a good allocation for this.
  9. Fulham Away Been meaning to go for years if anyone could assist getting me two tickets would much appreciated if not then even one would be helpful. Once there announced of course.
  10. Nuneaton Borough would be nice, get some money brought into in my local team if it's a mixture of youth and a few regulars.
  11. Daniel Sturridge from what I'm told, again Villa fan born locally. Not used much Liverpool these days... however very injury prone. Certainly can do a job and can nick a goal or two but I dunno you can't rely being your main striker. I'd still take him though but as an extra option.
  12. I'm little more confident than last year, last year we just never turned up against a really good organised Fulham side. I think our negative tactics we played that day lost us that final. I think it's going to be an entertaining with plenty of chances from both sides, but I think Villa will edge come the final whistle, 2-1 Villa and wouldn't rule out Derby scoring first.
  13. I'm surprised we weren't given more than this considering Bolton's trouble's, I was expecting a big allocation of 5,000. Never mind in the home end again.
  14. People find it amusing but at it's quite cruel what they do, the show is just making fun of people by the way look and act. I bet you wouldn't see anybody whose appeared on this be allowed to appear on Take Me Out! or OMG naked attraction lol
  15. Wonder where he'll go now! don't think we'll see him again in 2018 it's been horrible year for him, can imagine take a bit of time off and return in 2019. It wasn't so long ago he was linked up to that new Miami team Beckham's created. Could he go there?
  16. Ah yeah he's just joined Central Coast Mariners.
  17. I quite agree I think alot of the older members of the team will be exiting the team in the coming months, McCormack maybe given another chance I think. Never know what might happen under the right manager. Striker wise Smith's certainly got a few options. McCormack never featured much under Bruce, they had fall out early on and since then McCormack not really been a fair whip. When he first came under Di Matteo he didn't have a great start but then again, neither did so many that Di Matteo signed.
  18. Of course it always frustrating with Doug when he was chairman, seemed very tight on the budget however looking back now we know it was for the best interest of the club, a club he loved and would do anything for. It will be sad to think we will never see him at Villa Park again! he was part of the furniture. RIP Doug!
  19. Sensible move by Villa! look forward to see Smith's Villa Army!
  20. I think Terry played a huge part last season and maybe he was doing all the work Bruce should have been doing. I know Bruce has had horrific year off the field and missed a lot of work and perhaps in that time when he was away Terry was perhaps the guy who was in charge. Just seems strange now how since Terry's departure the teams confidence has dipped.
  21. For player who only was here for one season he certainly left a mark on the club, he was great captain who always professional and always gave 100% in performance a great ambassador for the younger players and especially towards Jack Grealish, he really as concentrated on his game rather nights out in a nightclub mainly down to John I think. It would fantastic to see him back in either the manager or assistant manager capacity as i still feel John as a big part to play in Villa's future.
  22. Paul Lambert did the same when he was at Norwich, claimed he wasn't interested... suddenly Villa made official approach... he resigned!. Lets face it there's no such word as loyalty or respect in football. John Terry retiring maybe just a coincidence, then again he maybe pointing to the fact if he does get the job he'll be fully committed rather being a player manager type role.
  23. Next Villa Manager Poll Be interesting to see numbers rather than posts, two choices one for "who you want as a manager" and "who think will be the next manager"
  24. To be honest they might aswell announce it now because cameras will be watching the crowd. It's obvious whoever it is, has approached some time ago well before Bruce was sacked. So basically is geezer out of work... Henry- *Fair enough* Moyes- *Please go no* McCarthy- *got to be kidding, please don't even think about out* Van Gaal- *Would be interesting, best CV by a mile* Padrew- *Terrible manager* Allardyce- *You just know it!, god help us*
  25. Another to throw in the ring I've heard rumoured is Louis Van Gaal.
