Trust twitter, as already mentioned on here, a 'source' at v.p. has us looking at dean smith of brentford as a prime candidate to become manager! i hope this one stays in neutral and no-one starts badgering dr. tony about possible candidates, we don't want him thinking there's a large segment of fans mobilizing to oust rdm, this could get stupid now.

Aston Villa is lining up Brentford-manager Dean Smith as a replacement for under pressure boss Di Matteo. According to what I've read, Smith was a Villa fan as a child.

Couple lads at work saying we will be in for a striker in january and if we can't get jordan rhodes we will chase Fraizer Campbell? Me personally would like campbell, his quick, has a eye for goalamd i think would be a ideal signing for the championship.

For rdm, these are getting to be desperate times, papers say 2 games to save his job. Rumour has it Dr. Tony has asked if Steve Round is prepared to step in for the interim if needed (hope not).

A short list of names is being put together, don't shoot me, that's what directors do; so with mccormack out, our most experienced forward, i get no joy in saying it, but our most valuable asset not being used is the gabster.

I know not fit to wear the shirt, but we're paying old lardy so why not use him as a sub for the last 20 minutes. if he wrecks out, then we slaughter him good and proper. if he wins us a penalty or scores a goal, he's on the path to redemption, the biggest comeback since lazarus!

If playing him saves rdm then its worth it, or is our pride to big to surmount? it makes sense and may help keep a good man in his job, its also simple logic!

IMO Agbonlahor should never play for Villa again. He's not good enough.
I would give Rushian HM a few games over the next few week's. He looks electric to me.

Dr. Tony himself just shot down those rumours, don't believe everything you read in the media mate.

I would play kozak, Rushian or anyone I could fined before i'd play gabby.

How short are peoples memories. Were you there last season?
Gabby had 38 games to prove his worth and proved nothing other than he does not give a toss
What more evidence of his total indifference to the club and to the fans do you need?
Never should be allowed in the ground never mind getting on the pitch.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Sep 2016 10:31:16
The bottom line is this, i don't like gabby. we're going to need every player we have to get the job done. if that means him as a sub, then that's what it'll have to be. we want promotion, we have to use what is available, like it or not unfortunately.

Agree0 Disagree1

28 Sep 2016 10:31:27
Mendax, i know you're right but with injuries and the cups coming up we must face facts we will have to use him at least as a sub. his experience is an asset.

Where was i last season? like all of us, i think i was on a tour or duty beyond depression, but this is a surreal season so far, hence the surreal suggestion.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Sep 2016 18:02:13
I agree about the surreal bit mate
To be honest, my resistance to the idea of Gabby playing is as much down to the fact that even in this division, he adds nothing for us. If he did, maybe my tone would be more conciliatory . However, he's total muck so I can vent my spleen freely.

I keep reading about rdm being unsure of his system?, but maybe we're being unfair. is he also trying out formations or personel for when players are away at the african nations cup? just a thought.

Unless we have a busy January window we will be bang in trouble when Ayew and co go for the cup! With only Mcormack as an experienced striker we need to make moves and dam quickly too, bear in mind the African lot aren't setting the world alight are they!

Hi guys haven't been on here on here a while i see nothings changed . i said a few months bck that i will not moan til xmas because that's when we would of played 20 games or so. so i'm not going to dis the team . but hope we get steve bruce he's a good manager look at what he did with hull.

Believable2 Unbelievable3

26 Sep 2016 20:02:31
I'm still optimistic mate, in all honesty we've been bang unlucky in a few of the games not to take all the points

I think rdms problem is he doesn't know his best team or formation, for me it's 4-3-3 and even I'm torn as to who which 3 play in midfield and which 3 play up top.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Sep 2016 20:25:28
I would have to say kodja in the middle McCormack left and ayes right, (I know McCormack is not a left sided/ left winger but he adds that much to the team we can't not have him in there) with ayew and McCormack swapping wings throughout. Then I'd have Tshibola, Jedinak and Westwood in the mid, Westwood as much as he's a crab occasionally he has a brilliant pass in his locker and is the best option we have. Then we'd have adomah grealish and gustede ready to come on and Gardner ready if Jedinak has a few more games like Saturday.

Agree0 Disagree1

26 Sep 2016 21:10:43
Since when has Westwood had a " brilliant " pass in his locker? .
Tell me of one brilliant pass he has made since he has been at our Club.
For me, Westwood makes himself available to receive a pass and then strokes it either sideways or backwards. Week in week out. That's all he ever does. He doesn't protect the defence or feed the attackers.
He needed to be replaced 3 seasons ago and until he is I will carry on praying that he leaves for Burnley ASAP.

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Sep 2016 23:46:01
Second half Saturday, balls mid air almost certain going out for a corner, little look over his shoulder sees there's bodies in the box and he pulls a volley out of nowhere to put it back into the danger zone, appreciated it from the jolts end and when I saw the highlights the commentators seem to appreciate it even more. Have a look for yourself, as I said aswell, he does just pass it side ways and back 98% of the time but he's the best third option we've got at the moment. He also slipped in kodja a few times this season, its all opinion. Don't be so easily offended/ emotional, he's just a footballer not bedding your bird👍.

Agree1 Disagree0

27 Sep 2016 13:54:30
I'm not offended or emotional Chris. I enjoy reading other peoples views. But I do feel quite strongly that if we're going to challenge then Westwood has to go. Just not good enough IMO.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Sep 2016 15:43:43
Fair enough just the way your first message read lol, may just have been me. But believe me I agree Westwood isn't good enough but he is the best third option we've got, the shirt seems to weigh too heavily on Gardner and he over play and over thinks. So for now Westwood will have to do if we play 3 in the middle.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Sep 2016 15:08:21
Come january, what top midfielder will come to us with 3 attacking players off on a shindig, maybe a new manager installed, and playing in a league where technical ability is secondary to graft and putting yourself about.

so let's not kid ourselves, they'll either be a player who has had a bust up and ain't being picked, coming back from a big injury and wants game time, is near the end of their career and wants that 1 final big pay day, or quite simply is a mercenary, and the player will want shed loads of money to come to us (as probably will their club).

now this could happen if we're prepared to pay over the odds, but the good doctor has already said that the days of us being fleeced are over. i just hope rdm can persuade him into loosening the purse strings.

Believable0 Unbelievable2

21 Sep 2016 16:04:58
Tom huddlestone for the mid, someone like Gary Hopper if things aren't going sheffields way.

Agree1 Disagree0

22 Sep 2016 12:54:34
If, come January we look like promotion candidates then there will be plenty of good midfielders willing to join our club.
If, come January we are in the doldrums then persuading good players to join will be very difficult indeed.
So, until then we have to hope that Jedinak and Tshibola stay clear of injury and that, if picked Landcrab Westwood actually plays a forward killer pass.

Agree1 Disagree0

22 Sep 2016 23:05:39
Lets hope for a plan then!

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Sep 2016 14:36:08
Regarding rdm, the wolves game i think will be a strong persuader as to what tony decides, lose, win or draw with pride, he'll be still there, lose or draw shambolically, i think the grown ups back in china will pass down their judgement, i think rdm deserves better than that, but, and i quote, 'the table doesn't lie', their money, their whim.

gestede and baker now on the injury list, there's got to be something wrong with our training methods, i don't believe i've ever heard about this many injuries at the start of the season ever.

if it were just the boys who've been on international duty i could half understand, but this is strange, maybe we need to give the boys a bit of an easier week in training. its a long hard season ahead, no point having the fittest team on the physio's treatment table!

Believable1 Unbelievable0

18 Sep 2016 11:33:15
Unfortunately the likes of baker, McCormack and delaet were injured playing, it just seems everything is against us, especially the amount of times we have hit the bar and post this season, but maybe it was with us against Ipswich, hopefully might get a injury time winner against the sob on the Tyne .

18 Sep 2016 17:42:54
VillaSA, you're absolutely right, but i was hoping they would be used to improve tactical awareness and team awareness, i.e., if for example jedinak goes forward then someone stays back to cover that position.

that type of thing, drills where our defence learns to act more like a unit. what i didn't expect was that just single sessions would deplete our squad so badly. it's a scary thought but the likes of the gabster might be called upon at the rate things are going!

Agree0 Disagree1

20 Sep 2016 23:31:27
Why don't we all stop panicking, a lot of teams that have started well will fade, we will get stronger as the season progresses, let Dimatteo find his best 11,they have only just stepped into claret and blue.
Once will gel we will go on one hell of a ride, just wait and see.

MCCormack has never played in prem what makes you think he will leave if we don't get promoted and RDM won't get sacked until end of season if we don't go up, if we fail go up straight away then maybe end of season, tonight tho is where our miss fortune changes.4-1 someone going to get a hammering soon and Kodjia score a brace 👍👍 UTV!

I doubt "thinking" played much part in him coming out with this piffle.

Agree2 Disagree0

14 Sep 2016 19:14:44
i never said i wanted him to get the sack, i don't think i even said the word sack, i said if things don't improve soon i think the good doctor may be inclined to go postal on him, as for ross, that's what i've been told, sounds mad definitely, but i've been told he wants premiership football asap, not for the money but to prove to himself that he belongs there (which he does obviously).

i believe he has mentioned this before at fulham, so yeah, maybe the funny farm is calling my name, as long as we get promoted by hook or by crook, there will be no issue, but if the unthinkable happens, well, i hope that doesn't come to fruition, and by the way, we all thought richards was toast but no, a vital member of our team now!

remember nothing is normal nowadays, so heck, if i were you i'd have said just the same, but there you go, at least it got the adrenaline going!

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Sep 2016 20:44:52
vital member of our team. Richards? are you on drugs mate he's a bench warmer.

Agree2 Disagree0

14 Sep 2016 22:46:11
Class of 82 you certainly don't have to apologise for expressing your views.
What you said certainly drew a colourful response. I for one actually agree that McCormack could possibly seek a move if we're not promoted. He badly wants PL football and aged 31 by then who could blame him?

Agree1 Disagree0

14 Sep 2016 23:00:04
Disappointed with tonight's result but let's not get negative, we're only two wins away from 4th spot and it's early doors in this unpredictable league! It's a dead certain some of the top six will lose points including Blues and Newcastle so things will even out. It's been frust rating but I still predict we will win 6 - 0 very soon. Our defence needs fine tuning though I must say.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Sep 2016 23:19:18
Richards a vital member of the team? There's no debating now you 100% don't watch the villa.

15 Sep 2016 00:31:02
If classof82 had posted some six months ago that we would be relegated with total capitulation and would win only one of the next 20 league games he would have been ridiculed to about the same extent as tonite.

Agree5 Disagree0

15 Sep 2016 12:58:29
Cheers for that Hopeful, the thing is i've watched us over and over and we make the same mistakes, in fact it looks like some of our players look nervous playing at home, we need to nip that in the bud quick, bring in an ex-player like ehiogu, keown or the like to help firm up our defence, what do you reckon?

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Sep 2016 14:41:06
That just about sums it up! Can you feel the pressure building RDM? Call it as I see it and this is no better than last season! 1st away goal for Forest this season! We really are a laughing stock.

Believable3 Unbelievable15

11 Sep 2016 15:16:53
We have no midfield end of, any one who can defend Westwood or Gardner knows nothing about football.

Agree2 Disagree6

11 Sep 2016 15:26:11
26 shots, 8 on target and we hit the post twice. Laughing stock is a bit harsh.

Agree5 Disagree1

11 Sep 2016 15:59:32
One toe poke from 30 yards that makes Bunn think he can't jump and the ball falling to someone luckily in the box and all of a sudden were a laughing stock. Behave yourself. Gardner made mistakes but 9/ 10 got the ball back straight away, he was starting attacks (actually passing forward) and getting up to support. Westwood was neat in possession and helped the back 4, they can't be that bad when their in a team that's created 26 shooting oppertunities, everyone's frustrated but don't look for a scape goat, we have to take our chances simple as that.

Agree3 Disagree1

11 Sep 2016 18:26:37
Westwood is, and always has been a mediocre Division 1/ Championship player. Gardener, so far this season has been just as poor. He doesn't create or defend well. That is why he keeps getting substituted by RDM.
Tshibola looks a really good prospect but I feel it would be a bit unwise to place too much responsibility on his young shoulders at the moment. Jedinak we've not really seen yet.
IMO the only problem we have ATM is the quality of our centre midfield.
N÷'s to be sorted . Fast.

Agree0 Disagree1

11 Sep 2016 22:20:25
I was at the game and agree about Westwood. Time and time again he passed sideways and backwards then for their equaliser he allowed the runner to burst thtough. i'm also a bit worried about our back two in particular Chester, because let's face it Forest had 3 attempts on goal and scored 2! However to say we are a laughing stock is a little silly, we had 26 shots on goal, hit the woodwork twice, scored twice and absolutely dominated the game! If we look at our mistakes and tighten up we will shoot up the table, but it needs to happen asap not in a few games time!

Agree1 Disagree0

12 Sep 2016 00:54:58
Basically we was robbed by bit of luck and a stunning opener, De Laet IMO 1st half was nervous and showed it, 2nd half improved a bit, I agree we need to sort out midfield and steel it up but attacking wise we will start ripping teams apart, Kodjia was great Ayew best game this season could do with a birthday every game by the looks but RDM should of brought on Jedniak after we took lead and closed out the game, so a few moments of luck for forest but overall we dominated and was unlucky.

Agree3 Disagree0

12 Sep 2016 09:45:30
Watched the highlights and sorry andyPF but watch it back, the only midfielder to make a forward pass into dangerous positions and then make them self an option was Gardner, made mistakes but get of the boys back and stop picking the easy option. He was subbed because we was 1-0 because the defence didn't close down their man and Bunn made a mistake, we was bringing on a striker and out of Westwood and Gardner we needed to keep the more defensive player on aka Westwood. We can't keep gifting teams points with mistakes but the way your talking the midfield will never be good enough we may aswell give up now, and there's still 120 points to play for!

Agree0 Disagree2

12 Sep 2016 14:13:37
All we are doing is expressing our opinions.
What I said about Westwood and Gardener I fully stand by.
That is that Westwood has never been or ever will be quite good enough if we are to seriously challenge for promotion.
As far a Gardener is concerned I'm not picking on him. He's an easy option at the moment yes, because so far this season he's been nowhere near good enough. He's been substituted in every game that he's started I think. Certainly 2 or 3 times. Stand to be corrected.
I really hope he comes good. He's a Villa boy of 24 years as opposed to my 60! .

Agree2 Disagree0

12 Sep 2016 17:29:35
Totally agree Andy.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Sep 2016 20:23:07
Fair point all opinions! I just appreciated his desire to atone for his errors and move the ball forward into attacking positions, much prefer him than Westwood yesterday.

Agree1 Disagree0

13 Sep 2016 22:37:44
Neither of them are good enough for this team, i was sat in the Doug Ellis stand on the half way line quite high up and from there it was plain to see there was a gap in the middle! With stronger guys in there we would have ripped Forest to shreds, we dominated as it was. I predict we will beat someone 6- 0 soon.

Agree1 Disagree0

11 Sep 2016 00:33:52
Tony Pulis actually said in his post match interview "people keep talking about style of play but look at Villa, relegated", the man really is obsessed, he only kept his job the last 2 years off the back of comments about villa to keep the fans onside. They won't save you now Tony, we're not even in the same league fgs.

Mendax, the rhodes rumour was pointed out to me by a boro blogger who heard it reported on a local radio station, as kingvilla has said before, we probably only get to hear maybe 5% of what really goes on, so, you never know, and as Villadave said, it was in the papers too.

maybe come january we might follow it up after all, i'd like to think that rdm wants him if for nothing else, than an insurance policy in case any of the chaps are cream crackered from their exploits at the african nations shindig, i'd be happy with him up front for sure.

Seriously though. I have a sister-in-law who is a journalist and she really gives an insight. These guys are judged on quantity rather than quality of stories. They affectionately call it " churnalism".
Hence my scathing tone when the press is mentioned. I trust the buggers not a jot.

It`s strange really because my crowd “family etc”, had said that it would not surprise any of us if we made an approach for Rhodes in the window just closed.
I would not say no to him too be honest Mendax, and I will stick my neck out and say January we just might see him wearing claret and blue, it might be nonsense (dig) too some but stranger things have happened.

Guys, just a quick point about buying hernandez in january, isn't this year also the 'copa america'? so that might affect us buying him surely?
just a thought fellas, why not just keep a beady eye on domestic players who are in the last year or so of their contract, and make a loan offer with a view to buying in the summer if promoted, or even players who aren't happy, say for instance, jordan rhodes, i think leeds might implode if their chairman starts sacking managers again, why not look at kemar roofe, or nakki wells at huddersfield, yes you may pay more than if you buy a foreign player, but, they know the league so no adjustment period-p. s. -2 more defenders please and some superglue for gollini's gloves!
