  1. i note Kevin Friend was reffing at the Norwich game??? no reprimand then ! no surprise really!!
  2. Seems like the season is starting again-with the protracted international break-and there are more to follow in Oct and November! I would make changes with a view to strengthening midfield and pushing Jack in a more advanced role. COME ON YOU LIONS.
  3. ^^^ Was thinking along these lines myself-we are being overrun in midfield,and do seem to be a bit weak there-ive said it a zillion times Hourihane is the only exponent of the dead ball that we have and a spot needs to be found fir him strewth look at the wasted free kicks and silly pitty patty corners that dont get past the first man to date,ive been disappointed with the wingers so far and believe its time for a change-Jack,s art is attacking he is not a defender look at how Ayew exposed this fact,he needs to be where he will be most effective in the opponents half of the field,be it 5-3-2 or 4-4-2 or 4-1-4-1 or some other formation a change imo is now needed.
  4. i,m right confused with this VAR ----on Sky refs report today it was said that VAR could,nt get involved because Friend had blown the whistle!!before the ball was in the net!! then i read somewhere that Madley the VAR official fully backed Friends totally ridiculous decision!!! it just dont add up-and its not all encompassing some of these refs love themselves play to the galleries and dont entertain the possibility thst they might have made a mistake--the whole idea should be scrapped and if mistakes are made then so be it-- cricket is a completely different complex---with the players requesting reviews for the referral to be made,
  5. That smirk really boils my **** its like a naughty school boy knowing he,s done wrong!!
  6. thats now twice that i can recall this particular attention seeking ref has "done us" and both concerning Jack! that f++++++g stomp at Wembley by Ryan Fredericks on Jacks thigh -right under his dam nose and now this---both Garth Crooks and the former Arsenal girl i forgot her name agree that the goal should stand-- Villa should lodge an official complaint --coz he clearly dont like Jack nor us --AND request that he handles NO more of our games and is nowhere near one----blimey i thought they were bad in the Championship!!!
  7. Cheers man was unaware,another off the payroll
  8. ^^ Is it a loan move or a permanent one?he arrived with a fanfare - but failed to live upto expectation.
  9. Congrats to Tyrone and Tom Heaton both named in the England squad for the games against Bulgaria and Kosovo -(i think) both fully deserved , ---no Jack maybe next time,
  10. Nice not to hit a banana skin as we have done so often in the past-just shows the different team/club that we are these days. Goals from Konsa Conor (2) Davis Guillbert and Jack,well pleased for em all especially Guillbert and Konsa, Well done players coaches and management.
  11. just watched the Sky live recording--have to say how refreshing it is to see "pundits" actually enthusing about Villa the atmosphere and crowd!!!!! Kelly Gillis,Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville all raving about the night!! the enjoyment onviously evident in their faces and voices---so so much different to the BBC "experts" self praising dire trite-- thanks Kelly Jamie and Gary for telling it for how it actually is!!
  12. Wow what a night---fantastic atmosphere---Villa Park really rocked tonight---a hot sultry night too--we rode our luck a little --but its goals what count-----great for Wesley to open his account---the lad played well all game---special mention to Mings who was immense, i hear Gareth Southgate was in the crowd-- and Taylor who put in a fair few timely tackles and made the inital pass for the second---how far did AEL sprint to bury it? was a bit concerned when Mings kicked Engels in the head--but he seemed to be ok---tremendous scenes at the end with Sweet Caroline echoing around the ground ----magic!! well done you Villa Boyzzz, and well done Deano timely substitutions--- nice to see Brian --- Killer from this site --and to meet Brian senior---safe journey home lads---- a night not to be forgotten----- M6 hastle free as well!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  13. i,d go with that-----to me Connor does,nt get the credit he deserves---a lot of what he does seems to go unnoticed--i said saturday he reminds me very much of Frank Carrodus----as i said previously is worth his place for dead ball kicks alone---
  14. Sturrdge does know where the net is-----i would,nt say no---
  15. Conor needs recalling i thought the free kicks and corners were very poor on saturday corners were failing to beat the first player and the tippy tappy ones were completely ineffective and any,free kicks were wasted,he is worth his place for dead ball kicks alone,maybe alongside Luiz at the expense of AEL?
  16. ^^ Aye had forgotten about Keith Andrew he along with Rosenoir always seemed fair non bias and made sense,Murphy had been so obviously anti Villa for quite some time putting the knife in at any opportunity his bosses should have had words ages ago.
  17. Am a bit concerned about being out muscled and overrun in midfield and lack of firepower up front,im hoping Marvellous will help with the former;but at whose expense?and am not convinced about AEL Trez &Wesley so far they havent created much,i,d have preferred it if we had brought Robinson back,Blades got a gud n there.-i guess only time will tell.
  18. Does Danny Murphy still criticise with his anti Villa splurge?---- Lineker Wrighty Shearer and Dixon always used to go off on tangents praising each other-- Danny Higginbotham and Leroy Rosenoir always seemed fair--- not yet had chance to "assess" Sky,s senior commentators on their Villa feelings--
  19. ^^^ i avoid match of the day as much as possible preferred the EFL show on Quest last season treated mysely to Sky Sports for retirement and much prefer to watch that the presenters aint so obsessed with themselves dress more appropiate and dont show as much bias.
  20. ^^^^^^ have to say i were,nt overly impressed with all 3 wingers---and wonder how many goals will be created/scored by them---thats why at the moment i,d be inclined to go with 4-4-2---- dont reckon Andre Green will be away at Preston for too long.
  21. thought championship refs were bad---but Atkinson was awful---Billing commits 3 yellow card offences 2 within a minute and gets 1 yellow???-----Howe made the decision for him substituting Billing at half time--- thought the ball was going out--cant understand why Heaton clatterered the player--and the second was a gift--from Luiz, the deflection gave Heaton no chance-- we played some nice stuff 2nd half---cracking goal from Luiz-nicely set up by Jack--but i could.nt see an equaliser ,----i reckon 4-4-2 would suit us better until we cn adjust to the physicality and demands of the Premiership----midfield gets a bit overrun, and Wesley needs to find his feet -----sooner rather than later--
