Great start for out new manager, bit hairy at the end but well done to the lads. I was never a Bruce fan and it's for the better we have a change, however I just wonder if he had played Tuanzebe instead of Jedinak our results may have been different he would still be here. Tuanzebe looked so comfortable at CB and had a.

a great game.

We where saying Dean couldent, do a lot in two days, but he certainly sent them out with a different attitude . Energy (That has been missing ) movement, and a desire to win .
Chester and Axel, where solid at the back, Taylor had his best game &Hutton was Mr reliable . Maginn, was back to his best, getting a foot in all over the park . A shout for Nyland as well, settled down and made some good saves . Tammy could of had a hat trick again, he certainly can't say he doesn't get chances . Thor had a good game, should certainly be there every game . Mo and Albert are certainly, missed defensively when taken off . don't know what's up with Yanic, but certainly off his game .
Over all good result, we just have to keep it going . A great response to Doug, brilliant to see all the ex players . Shows the respect that people had for him

My word we have had some great C Backs over the years.
What I would give now for any two from the list below to be our central defence.
Just as a matter of interest my pairing would be: P McGrath and M Laursen, but to be fair any two would be great.
Get a grip, I must stop dreaming.
KEN MCNAUGHT
MARTIN LAURSEN
OLOF MELLBERG
PAUL MCGRATH
GARETH BARRY
GARETH SOUTHGATE
UGO EHIOGU
JOHN TERRY
CHRIS NICHOLL
ALLAN EVANS
Does anyone remember Lionel Martin, always looked like he had a coat hanger under his shirt.

Gareth Barry?

20 Oct 2018 08:55:26
Con Martin
Jimmy Dug dale
John Slewenhoek
All top men.
Con Martin used to play in goal if keeper was injured.
Also, I believe that he played for Ireland both at Centre half and in goal as a selection.
Hard as tungsten.
DugDale bought from Baggies
Slewenhoek was from Dutch family in England. Father was a paratrooper in WW.

Flackie, what`s with the question mark mate, surely you were around in those days.
Barry is listed in the List of Aston Villa players – Wikipedia as Defender/ Midfield.
He formed a back three of Ugo, Southgate, Barry back in the late 90s, and it was stated by Paul Merson at the time, that Villa`s defence was on a par with Arsenals back line.
I would also go so far as to say, Barry played as a central defender was better than what we have at present.
In my honest opinion Barry was as good a Defender as he was Midfielder, and had the ability to have become a top central defender, he had it all.

20 Oct 2018 17:36:52
I never remember him playing at cb mate.
Left back and across the middle of the park.
If I’m wrong I apologise Dave. Hence the question mark!

21 Oct 2018 07:54:09
Villa’s best centre back has to be Paul McGrath and already mentioned in the posts above here are a few more.

Martin Keown
Kent Nielsen
Derek Mountfield
Steve Foster
Paul Elliott.

21 Oct 2018 09:30:55
Personally I’m amazed that lescott has not made this list. 😳.

21 Oct 2018 11:49:40
Thought about it Flacks, he fell short on a technicality mate, that being, he was crap.

21 Oct 2018 15:28:19
Haha! And looked like he’s from Star Trek?

22 Oct 2018 10:05:10
dont forget Sean Teale.

19 Oct 2018 16:01:22
Good to see on here every1s happy an we all have something to look forward to, It's going to take time and we are going to have to patient, I'm looking forward to Saturday I'm not expecting to much to change in a week thou, our shape will change and our speed of play, but over all whether we go up or not its next season we will see the best of smiths villa, with a good pre season and new signings, I'm right behind the manager 100 percent plus he's a villa boy like all us lot, utv.

Allan Evans a good centre back for Villa.

22 Oct 2018 10:06:00
Alan Evans was second only to God in my opinion.

I know we are going to be patient and rightfully so, everything has been said that needs to be said in terms of a rallying cry. I do think however that Dean Smith will change very little in terms of selections and style of play, it's far too early in his tenure to not work with the status quo, so we should not expect too much tomorrow or the next couple if games. If we accept this he will not be forced to make rash decisions if things aren't what we hope for. All of that said I believe the new manager syndrome will work it's magic tomorrow and I will have a front row seat to see it happen.

Scotty, you saved me a post mate, I was going to say the very same thing tonight.
Agree totally, we will have to start with his mentality first.

19 Oct 2018 11:58:55
A lot of people on here (me included) demanding we get behind the lads tomorrow.
Need support from all four sides. Not just Holte End and lower North Stand but Upper North, Doug Ellis (Witton Lane) and Trinity Road Stand in particular. I remember the days when the Trinity were feet stamping in the old wooden stand. Raised the hair on my neck when I was a kid way back. I know you can't do it now 'cos it's concrete concourse but the message is clear. LOUD tomorrow!

Don’t worry about the upper north, we will be doing our bit . I have sat in the front row, for about the last 25 years and it’s not the Holte standard, but can still be vocal .

Even on concrete if everybody stamps the noise will be heard unless your all wearing trainers.
Get the old work boots out and sharpen the studs, we are going for a ride!
