What the 13 point gap . We are still in a good position in 4th and we are putting last two banana skins behind us.

18 Mar 2018 09:56:27
Two losses on the spin, don't think we've done that since Reading and Cardiff start of the season. We need to sit back, relax and regroup. This two games have gone, no need to criticise it isn't going to change anything. We are 4th, possibly 10 points off 2nd with 8 games to play, during 80% of the season most fans would have snapped your hands off for play offs and we've done bloody well to get here considering how we started. Now Cardiff need to drop 10 points for us to make second, their most likely losses are Derby, Wolves and Us, personally I can't see it happening but never say never. The main thing we need to focus on now is ourselves, get everyone back fit, bring back the team spirit we saw before these two games and get some form going into what will be the biggest 2 possibly 3 games of our recent history. Make no mistake about it, failure to go up this year has grave consequences, we have been at a huge advantage these last two years but that luxury ends come the end of the season, we will have to sell one or two of our best players and we will see very little coming in for the next few years. We are on the cusp of a defining moment within our history, personally I trust this group of lads and the manager to get us through it, but no matter what let's just make sure we do all we can, get the atmosphere up and let the players know we are with them all the way!

Well said Chris.

18 Mar 2018 10:11:07
Agree 100%
We have to go up this season,
Ftp will really hit us hard next season and lots of out better players will be off to new pastures,
We have done well to get where we are and if you look at other blogs they want Bruce out now,
That is not the way we have to stick with him whatever.
Bruce had made mistakes but tell me manager's who don't?
This from a fan who did not want him as villa manager
He has done a good job and we need to get behind the team to make sure we make the play offs at least,
Because looking behind us there are many teams closing on us and we can't afford many more slip-ups,
Team to watch for play-offs are millwall,
They are really flying up table,
Come on villa get back on a winning streak.

I am pretty sure Bruce will not be reading this, so it should appear that I am not getting on his back, I am giving my honest opinion about our manager and team.
After all the euphoria and chest beating following last weekend`s result, it did occur to me that something like this was going to happen.
I have said on here before that I get fed up with all these false dawns with Villa, and I can see one happening again, let`s be honest and get real, we are far from being the best side in the division.
Far too often we flatter to deceive and are getting found out far too easily again, you can see it from the stands and you can see it from your armchair, if you can`t beat a team like Bolton on their showing last night what chance have you got, and yes I think we were that bad.
As you already know I do have my reservations about Bruce, and I have aired them on here many times, so nothing new, and I honestly think if we do go up, the likely hood is we would come straight back down, that is an assumption of course not a certainty.
I noticed yesterday how Bruce was walking up and down in his area totally devoid of any ideas of what to do, and wishing something would go in the net off a divot in the turf.
I also think the substitutions he made were more in desperation than tactical, there were four strikers on the pitch at one point, when it was blatantly obvious we needed creativity from midfield, it is that plan B thing again.
If the players we have in our squad performed at the levels they performed at when we purchased them, we would surely be where Wolves are now, once every third game is not good enough.
I love my club with a passion, and crave for top flight football at Villa park again, our position is still very favourable.

18 Mar 2018 12:18:19
A very, very good post chris. to criticise just breeds all the negatives. two on the bounce is worrying. we are still in the play offs though, so its still all to play for. How true it is i'm not sure but jt is talking about playing on forr us next season Will wwe be able to afford him though if wwe don't goo up.

18 Mar 2018 14:26:07
Thanks lads, hard to be positive at times like this but just remember this season we’ve beaten Fulham, beaten Middlebrough, beaten wolves. On our day on big occasions this season we have showed up, we have struggled against the teams we are expected to, but when the pressure is on and on the big occasions we have showed up. With John Terry who has won everything at club level, been the key figure in dressing rooms that have achieved amazing feats like when they over turned the deficit against Napoli. James Chester been promoted before, Jedinak the same, Chester and Taylor in the wales squad that shocked everyone at the euros, Hourihane captained Barnsley to promotions, Adomah Snodgrass. I can go on. Bruce has go teams promoted through the play offs more than once, they say it’s a roulette but experience has to play a part and for 3 games I believe we can beat any team from this league out in front of us.

18 Mar 2018 09:13:34
Just a thought,
Spurs are in the semi finals of fa cup,
So do fans think it's unfair that they could play there game at there temporary home ground!
Plus if they get to final again they play at Wembley,

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Mar 2018 09:23:59
I think it’s lsugha that they play there.
The least the fa should of done is say that they play there in league, but all cup games are away from home legs.
It’s an unfair advantage, and belittles Wembley.

18 Mar 2018 09:32:43
Meant to say laughable!

18 Mar 2018 09:47:58
Agree flackie,
The fa cup now is not the fantastic cup competition it once was,
It's lost its magic,

24 yo play for after yet another banana skin how many more, bang goes second place and if we keep playing like we did today bang goes the play offs . Bet the wolves fan are loving this and there right to . Mind the gap.

{Ed033's Note - Are you loving this then?

Agree3 Disagree4

18 Mar 2018 09:41:50
Something don’t add up, why would you mention “the wolves fans are loving this and there right to”. as I said the other day, definitely another delusional Wolves fan obsessing over the villa because we beat them.

18 Mar 2018 10:00:05
Don’t give them airtime Chris.

18 Mar 2018 10:16:00
Absolutely Edd villadaz very quiet now . Sssshhh 😜.

18 Mar 2018 20:58:49
And there we have it confirmed, mr potato heads sister is his mother.

17 Mar 2018 19:49:39
A few more like that and we could be in trouble, Bruce lacks the tactical nouse to change things. We are too predictable and every team we play till the end of the season will be aware of the way we play, QPR Preston and Bolton have proved this. In Bruce We Trust brigade will eventually see this. I want to go to Wembley in the play off finals sadly I think Bruce may make this impossible.

Agree13 Disagree21

17 Mar 2018 19:57:37
Jesus I bet you had your hands rubbing together this week so you could beat this drum again. What a ‘fan’ you are. silent for months, lose two games and there you are.
Yawn yawn.

17 Mar 2018 20:26:08
People like you make me so angry your boring and predictable Hopeful your not a fan nor a supporter but a double of Victor Meldrew.

{Ed033's Note - Were you Mr. Angry on the Steve Wright in the afternoon show on Radio One?

17 Mar 2018 20:43:18
Boring, predictable I think you must be referring to Bruce, consistent is the tag you should level at me, check the agree box I am not on my own.

17 Mar 2018 20:58:01
You haven’t posted in months, you thrive of villa failing because of your dislike for the manager. The players could go out there and take a dump on the half way line and refuse to play and you would blame Bruce. Your boring, embarrassing and not a real ‘fan’ in any sense of the word.

17 Mar 2018 22:01:02
You are dead right right, consistent is your thing, one drum, and you have beat it consistently in all you say. ’yawn yawn’
So consistent the last time you posted was last year, 27th December.

And yes the agrees are certainly clicking, straight after a loss when FANS emotions are high. However there is nearly as many disagrees.

A fan supports their club, follows their club, stands together with fellow supporters. Ask yourself fellow ‘fan’ how many of these you can say yes to.
Thank you for making this result close to bearable.

18 Mar 2018 09:45:17
Hmmm, it seems that after a good nights sleep emotions have calmed down and your disagrees out weigh your agrees. I’m one of the worst for coming on here after a defeat and arguing on emotion, however I can always see the clear thrill you get out of Villa winning. How can you explain not posting since the last time we had a bad spell in December? How can you explain every single one of your messages being negative? If you don’t enjoy the success but love the down fall and thrive off it then I hate to break it to you but you aren’t a “fan” of Aston Villa.

17 Mar 2018 19:32:38
Very poor.
Why did they keep under hitting passes?
Bolton knew what we were doing and caught us out every time.
In this weather surely a poke at the goal was worth a try. Did we have a direct shot?
Even the play offs look tricky now.
Fulham look like a solid 3rd so we want 4th or 5th, we don't want them in the play off until the decider.
We can beat all of the teams on any day but not every day all of the time.
I aeked a question about which players have the balls to pick themselves up.
Answer, none of them.

Agree3 Disagree0

17 Mar 2018 19:38:41
Fulham look far from solid, did you see them earlier?

18 Mar 2018 09:57:03
Did better than us against Q PR.

17 Mar 2018 19:27:38
Games like this is what has cost us automatics. They capitalise on poor defending and then create literally nothing else, we create 3 or 4 brilliant chances, take non and lose. Conditions were awful but the same for both teams, Taylor should have been sent off for the challenge on Bjarnson and we should have had a penalty for the handball in the first half, with that said when we needed them Adomah and Snodgrass went hiding, Grabban wasn't good enough and missed chances. Elmo and Bjarnson are weak links that's cost us so many times tonight, you can't account for that, we need them out.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Mar 2018 19:20:59
Are Elmo and Bjarnson having a competition who can be worse and cost us the most?

Agree0 Disagree2

17 Mar 2018 19:25:23
Terrible performance by all,
Now it's the play offs
Not one player had a good day,
Very disappointed with this after the results went our way earlier in day,

17 Mar 2018 19:33:33
No one had a good day but two had extreeeeeeemely bad days.

18 Mar 2018 09:08:29
Unfair to single out 2 players for being Very poor,
The team were poor throughout ,
Grealish was our best player but we have had 2 poor games back to back,
And if we are not careful the play offs could be out of reach as well,
We have messed it up now for 2nd place
Just hope that Cardiff lose 3-4games but does not look likey now.

18 Mar 2018 09:48:03
Why is it unfair? Adomah and Snodgrass went hiding, same way they did against QPR, however Elmo consistently played us into trouble, the corner they scored off was because Elmo lost possession trying to hoof it out when there was plenty of options and he couldn’t defend for toffee. Bjarnson got ran all over, consistently miss placed passes and melted under pressure, several times in good attacking situations with loads of options he ruined our oppertunity. It’s not unfair, just saying it how it is.

18 Mar 2018 12:36:39
Grealish aside every player had a mare,
It was a poor team performance end of
It's just not fair to pick out 2 when you could have said
8 players went missing on night,
Move on to next game and hope that everybody turns up!

17 Mar 2018 18:44:25
Looking more and more like we are going into the playoffs.
We need to re group and settle. Looking nervy and off our game.
Yes conditions are nasty, but they are for both sides. and you can’t give an excuse for that defending.

Relax, draw breath and make sure we go in to it with the right mind set, or we will be blown out the water in the first round.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Mar 2018 19:26:37
We can't blame the conditions same for both sides,
Another bad day at office.
