Time for us to get behind our team 100% now.

No more business can be done, so we are stuck with what we have. No point saying what we should of done when things aren't going our way.

We wanted change and my god have we got it. Plenty in and out and a manager who is determined to succeed.

Now we must play our part. It's our turn to pack the stands and get right behind our new lads (and older ones).

Fully agree stu.

The trouble is I can bet you now that the natives will still find plenty to moan about.

Well they will want a few scapegoats. It seems it's the done thing with our fans.

So many go on about our fans being one of the best, time to back them words up. The manager backed up what he said he was going to do. Only right we play our part.

Good post mate I feel happy with the majority of our business in the window we have strengthened in most departments. The main thing is we have options now in personnel. Sherwood has done well so far and I think most can see what he is trying to do, not just short but long term. I have a good feeling we will be fine even if it is a bumpy road at times this season. The fans will get behind the team but not everyone will be satisfied. People have general concerns about inexperience of players in this league and where the goals will come from? We can only get behind the team as you said it is up to Sherwood to sort these things out.

While I'll support the team fully I still think this season is going to another difficult one and surely a forum like this is the place to discuss it. What's the point in a forum if we don't discuss the problems with the team and mistakes made by the manager? Should we just stick our fingers in our ears and repeat 'la, la, la, la' incessantly while pretending that we've got a great squad, manager and owner who can do no wrong?

Sherwood has done a decent job during the window strengthening defence and midfield but we've still got a really poor keeper and a very dubious attack. These will remain issues until January at least unless some players start to perform like they've never played in their careers. I give the club full support week in week out but I'm realistic enough to see the problems that we face and the reasons for them.

i think what Stu is saying is support the team, yes there will be bad days but dont let it drag you down and dwell on it, take each game as it comes.

we may end up being crap but its our crap WE are AVFC

I think TS has bought well. People keep knocking Guzan for his distribution and positioning (which is dubious) but he is a great shot stopper. To get the type of keeper some people keep going on about will cost big money - (perhaps next transfer period). If Kozak is given a chance I think he will step up and score goals. Midfield looks good and if Micah goes to RB with Lescott stepping into CB I think the backline is sorted. With Traore and Sinclair on the wings we can be a strong team. I can still see a bit of experimenting with Gil and Grealish, but overall I am quite confident that this season we will perform well.

Not really the thread for this discussion buy I don't see Lescott and Clark forming a CB partnership, both too left footed. I reckon we might see Ilori (apparently he can play anywhere across the back line) at RB, Richards and Lescott at CB and Amavi at LB. Unfortunately I can only see Clark being dropped.

players come and go ,,,,,,same as managers , only the fans are constant

the signs are there that we could finish top half this season

but if we do struggle again and get relegated it wont be because of the lack of support from the villa fans in the stands

i am sure all the posters on this forum who go to matches will continue to support and back the team in person at matches in any division if the worst happens

and will continue to do so long after the current squad and manager have gone

ps

talking of support , the one group of fans (brigada) who make the most effort to support and back the team during matches

are this season getting, hounded and harrased and told to shut up or get thrown out by AVFC club officials / stewards and the police

in an area of the ground that AVFC have designated as a singing area
