  1. I rarely give a Saturday 15:00 hours KO game a miss, but I gave this one a miss ... ... and I am glad that I did ! On the old TV programme 'Juke-Box-Jury', this game would have definitely been a 'Miss' too ! I read the match report on the AVFC website. In its roundabout way it reinforces what folks have been saying on here about AVFC only starting to play after going behind. The MOTD wallahs will have a field day tonight, methinks.
  2. I have predicted : Aston Villa 3-1 West Ham
  3. I have not been over there for a few years, but there were two pubs, M&B The Britannia and on the corner of Holborn Hill, Ansells, The Swanpool. Don't know if both are still open, or if they have been renamed or changed breweries.
  4. Per the Link above, we have 7 players out injured. 7 R Vlaar Hamstring Injury no return date G Agbonlahor Ankle/Foot Injury 8th Feb 14 L Kozák Broken Leg no return date C Herd Hamstring Injury no return date J Bennett Back Injury no return date J Okore ACL Knee Injury Apr 14 C N'Zogbia Calf/Shin Injury no return date Injury information last updated: Monday 3rd of February 2014 10:59:06 PM
  5. Here's the context, only Norwich and Fulham are playing teams not featured here : EPL Table, teams from 9th to 20th as at 02/02/2014 & Next Matches, 08-09/02/2014 : 09 Southampton. 24 +7 35 : H Stoke City 10 Aston Villa. 24 -7 27 : H West Ham ... KO 15:00 hours 11 Stoke City.. 24 -14 25 : A Southhampton 12 Swansea City 24 -6 24 : H Cardiff City 13 Hull City... 24 -7 24 : A Sunderland 14 Sunderland.. 24 -11 24 : H Hull City 15 Norwich City 24 -18 24 : H Man City 16 W B Albion.. 24
  6. Wes Hoolahan wants to leave Norwich City and come here, apparently : Skysports - Wes Hoolahan confirms he wants to leave Norwich for Aston Villa It would be pathetic if Norwich do not sell WH to AVFC just because they had/have 'issues' with Paul Lambert ! Business is business ... get on with it.
  7. Not the horror score some had feared and AVFC have beaten Arsenal on aggregate : 4-3 :whistling:
  8. I would not say 'No' to Nikica Jelavic, but it looks like he's going to Hull City. As for Grant Holt, this looks like cover for Libor Kozac's absence (broken leg). For Paul Lambert it is signing the 'devil you know', so maybe PL will get GH firing again.
  9. Well after the other games AVFC are still 11th in the EPL and cannot drop lower. A win or draw will see us rise to 10th ... here's hoping ! EPL Table, teams from 9th to 20th as at 12/01/2014 & Next Match : 09 Southampton. 21 +4 30 : X 10 Hull City... 21 -5 23 : X 11 Aston Villa. 20 -6 23 : H Arsenal ... (13th) ... KO 20:00 hours. 12 Stoke City.. 21 -13 22 : X 13 Swansea City 21 -4 21 : X 14 W B Albion.. 21 -5 21 : X 15 Norwich City 21 -18 20 : X 16 Fulham...... 21 -24 19
  10. I predicted this on 20/12/2013 as : Aston Villa 2-2 Arsenal That looks highly unlikely atm, but I'll stick with it. Here's the context : EPL Table, teams from 9th to 20th as at 01/01/2014 & Next Matches, 11-12-13/01/2014 : 09 Southampton. 20 +3 27 : H W B Albion 10 Hull City... 20 -3 23 : H Chelsea 11 Aston Villa. 20 -6 23 : H Arsenal ... (13th) ... KO 20:00 hours. 12 Stoke City.. 20 -11 22 : H Liverpool . (12th) 13 Swansea City 20 -2 21 : A Man United 14 W B Albion.. 20 -4 21 : A Southampton 15
  11. From the 'Paul Lambert Thread' :
  12. This is what I wrote about the match on New-606-Aston Villa : The FA Cup banana skin strikes ! Only one team was playing football today and that team won ... ... fair play to Sheffield United and Good Luck in the 4th Round. It looks like Paul Lambert was granted his 'wish'. Managers who disrespect the competition do not deserve to do well in it. I was thinking at the match that from a neutral's viewpoint, this match was a potential 'banana skin' : A struggling Level 1 Club against lower league opposition with nothing to lose ... and it happened. As for the game itself, i
  13. Got my ticket, so I'll be there. My prediction is : Aston Villa 3-1 Sheffield United If Lambert does what he did last Season *, expect to see Jed Steer in goal and Guzan on the bench. * Played Given instead of Guzan in the Cups.
  14. I wish we could play Swansea every (other) week ... maybe then our players would learn how to run off the ball and provide passing opportunities for each other ! At least we got a goal from open play, at last !
  15. Despite the current gloom, I am not changing my prediction : Aston Villa 2-1 Swansea EPL Table, teams from 9th to 20th as at 26/12/2013 & Next Matches, 28-29/12/2013 : 09 Southampton. 18 +7 27 : A Everton (29th) 10 Stoke City.. 18 -8 21 : A Tottenham (29th) 11 Swansea City 18 -1 20 : A Aston Villa 12 Hull City... 18 -7 20 : H Fulham 13 Aston Villa. 18 -7 19 : H Swansea City ... KO 15:00 hours. 14 Norwich City 18 -15 19 : H Man United 15 W B Albion.. 18 -5 17 : A West Ham 16 Cardiff C
  16. I did not fancy going to this match, so gave it a miss ... my Christmas present to me ! Saw the 'highlights' on MOTD, the highest being Weimann's 'shot' into Row Z !!! Have to accept that Gayle's goal was well taken; can we sign him in January ???
  17. Update to my previous Post. EPL Table, teams from 6th to 20th as at 22/12/2013 & Next Matches, 26/12/2013 : 06 Newcastle... 17 +2 30 : H Stoke City 07 Tottenham... 17 -5 30 : H W B Albion 08 Man United.. 17 +8 28 : A Hull City 09 Southampton. 17 +4 24 : A Cardiff City 10 Stoke City.. 17 -4 21 : A Newcastle 11 Swansea City 17 +0 20 : A Chelsea 12 Hull City... 17 -6 20 : H Man United 13 Aston Villa. 17 -6 19 : H C Palace ... KO 15:00 hours. 14 Norwich City 17 -14
  18. Thanks, Loyal. :thumbup: What's the betting that come February, it will be : In : 0 Out : 0 Net : 0 ?
  19. Admin, Can this Thread be Pinned (until the January window has closed) ? :question: Cheers !
  20. I have this as Aston Villa 3-1 Crystal Palace in the Prediction League. EPL Table, teams from 10th to 20th as at 21/12/2013 & Next Matches, 26/12/2013 : 10 Stoke City.. 17 -4 21 : A Newcastle 11 Swansea City 16 +1 20 : H Everton (22nd) : A Chelsea (26th) 12 Hull City... 17 -6 20 : H Man United 13 Aston Villa. 17 -6 19 : H C Palace ... KO 15:00 hours. 14 Norwich City 17 -14 19 : H Fulham 15 Cardiff City 17 -12 17 : H Southampton 16 W B Albion.. 17 -5 16 : A Tottenham 17 West Ham....
  21. If we are honest with ourselves, we realistically expected nothing from this match and we got nothing. Time to move on.
  22. Use this type, it has no 'moving parts' (probably cheaper too) :
  23. Here's the league placings, win by 3 goals and we go above them : 09 Manchester United 15 6 4 5 22 19 +3 22 10 Swansea City 15 5 4 6 21 20 +1 19 11 Aston Villa 15 5 4 6 16 18 -2 19 P.S. Swansea are away to Norwich.
  24. Just checked the AVFC website, there is still 'limited availability' in all the stands.
  25. That was me, in the Fulham match Thread, but I will repeat it here : Since MON left, AVFC has the following record on Sundays : Sunday since 2009-2010 : Pld 17 Won 1 Drew 6 Lost 10 Pts 9 We knew AVFC would be 11th in the EPL irrespective of the score in the EPL match tonight : Swansea City 1-1 Hull City EPL Table, teams from 6th to 19th as at 09/12/2013 & Next Matches, 14-15/12/2013 : 06 Tottenham... 15 -1 27 : H Liverpool (15th) 07 Newcastle... 15 -1 26 : H Southampton 08 Southampton. 15 +5 23 : A Newcastle 09 Man
