    Squad Rebuild

    I agree Larry but if Tottenham come back in or someone else in the Premier League we cant deprive him of a move as we are a championship team. Also as much as id love Grealish to stay, we have no more parachute payments after this season which i think means that we can spend what we make. So if Grealish goes for 25-30 mil that could be 5-6-7 players that we could be screaming out for. You look at that team with the loans, out of contract, under performing and ageing players i really think we could see between 10-15 players leave. I think the villa will be the busiest team in the summer transfer window, they have to be going on that.

    Is our Academy that poor?

    I think Dean needs to realise the team he's picking isn't capable of this playing it out from the back football without axel and jack. Just go back to basics 4 4 2, let Davis have a go, pick our 2 most willing midfielders and pick one of the 4 wingers we have in el ghazi, green, adomah and Ramsey. I genuinely believe that would change a few things. As I've said before look at the blues, average squad, play 4 4 2 with a big man and little man playing off each other up top and doing very well (apart from last week against Bolton which does happen in this league). Going back to the meaning of this subject of the youth/academy, for those that don't know much about them or watch them I suggest you do. Some very very tidy players in there that imo deserve at least a cameo appearance like Ramsey. I'm not saying they will be the next big thing but they definitely offer younger legs and lots of energy.

    I cant have that Smith has told certain players they will be off in the summer. Surely no manager is that stupid. I just think this lack of effort thing is actually the players not being good enough. Mid table championship players at best. For 25 odd minutes on saturday they were holding there own and looked decent but the first goal killed the game off. Us fans will always speculate whats going on behind the scenes but truth is we will never know.

    Stoke City v Aston Villa

    The sad thing about this whole situation down the villa is that the defence have looked a lot better the last couple of games. Hause played well saturday and Mings and Elphick are solid enough. Its the midfield thats now the issue. No Grealish or Mcginn means no creativity or fight. Id say play Ramsey again but im sure we have played him out wide in the u23s. Hopefully Carroll is fit and Whelan and Hourihane are professional enough to ignore the boos.

    Stoke City v Aston Villa

    2 1 Stoke. We'll play the same playing out from the back bollocks with tammy on his own up top. No mcginn means no fight from midfield. Dont even look forward to it sadly. Either way UTV, I hope for the best. Play the kids smithy.

    We've shipped some of the ones with most potential out mate (I'm guessing for game time and experience) and I don't think any player should be wrapped up in cotton wool but you could argue its best to keep them away at the moment. Things are getting toxic again, that Hourihane booing was mad, its hard to feel sorry for a millionaire but I did. I really think we should just forget this season. Whatever manager bought some of this sh*t shouldn't work again. The best players on that pitch yesterday were loaned players, that says it all. Tyrone mings was head and shoulders above them all so fair play to Smith for getting him in. It's horrible to watch and I said yesterday I won't be going again this year home or away. I don't like what I'm seeing and it genuinely ruins my weekend.

    VILLA 0-2 WBA

    I agree he shouldnt be booed but f*ck me is he a waste of a player. My last game this season that is. Smith needs to realise this team can't play the way he wants it's so frustrating.

    VILLA 0-2 WBA

    What makes tomorrow worse is the baggies having Gayle, Robson kanu, matt Phillips, Brunt and Morriston missing. If there was ever a time to beat albion it's tomorrow.

    VILLA 0-2 WBA

    Once again, can't see anything but a loss here. The big thing for me in this game is I want to see the players not pulling their weight dropped. Drop adomah and el ghazi for Ramsey and green or even play el ghazi behind tammy and let whelan and McGinn take up Central midfield. I'd love nothing more for us to ruin the baggies promotion hopes, it's their big day out and they've even opened the hawthorns up so fans can go watch it on the big tele. If that doesn't smack of obsession then I don't know what does. Come on Deano have some balls and drop the effortless players. UTV.

    Tbh Freddy i ruled top 6 out with the Wigan game. I was saying to myself anything higher then 8th places finish is a bonus. I felt for Hause yesterday as well, the effort was there but his positioning was off but thats expected as a centre back playing left back. That's what doesn't make sense, id rather play our left back playing kids then someone out of position. I really want to see Smith start to change this team around now i cant defend him sticking with the same sh*t every week.

    Brentford 1-0 Aston Villa

    I wish Smith shown a bit more bollocks and started Green and Ramsey. Both young and hungry they will put in maximum effort. They may not be world beaters but they cant be any worse than our 2 current wide players and it will also show the overpaid egotastic lazy prats we have no time for this. If they dont respond positively to that then they go, no time for time wasters anymore Villa. Kodjia is making my blood boil at the moment with his sulking and lack of battle.

    Brentford 1-0 Aston Villa

    Another nothing performance from us. Brentford looked unreal but I can't work out if that's because we're that bad. Tammy might as well of stayed at home (not slagging him at all as he was on his own up top) mcginn looks fucked the sooner he gets a break the better. Adomah looks half the player he was last year, el ghazi shown a couple of glimpses but again I'd rest him. Lost for ideas with this team. Just wish Smith would play 2 up top or drop some of the players who ain't doing their jobs. The baggies are gonna walk all over us and that will turn the already large portion of angry fans even further. So so depressing being a villa fan.

    I agree lads the team ain't good enough. People talk about us having one of if not the strongest sides in the league. I think we have a load of overrated journey men who have no fight at all. On the other hand I do believe there are a good bunch of players that do care like Chester grealish mcginn Green etc. I can't wait for the season to end so Smith can chuck out some of this tat and build a young hungry side.

    So bored of this sh*t.

    Jacob Ramsey on the bench, one of the u23s that we need to give a chance. Exciting player there.
