So, there's a whisper we could be in for speedster on the wing and a striker, BUT if bjarnison is loaned out and a certain championship club comes in for adomah, then its going to get a bit nutty on the loans merry-go-round, one final whisper, kodjia apparently isn't happy and hoping previous suitors in the turkish league come in for him on loan-i say 'taxi for kodjia'-seems a fair swap!

Very pleased with result and a really great performance from mcginn who looks a great bargain,
I'm worried more about kodjia who looks to me not interested
Plus all 6 goals scored in 2 games none by a striker!
Also if de-laet is over his suspension he should come back .
He was the stand out performer in pre-season and deserves to be the replacement for Elmo,
C/ back position a worry . Chester is good but drop elfick when he scored against hull and I know he looked a little shaky at times I would still prefer him over Jedi at c/ back,
But 6 points you can't argue with,
And this mcginn looks a star in the making,
A real box to box player with great delivery and a goal threat,
Roll on Ipswich I say!

Kodja drove me to distraction yesterday, whenever things didn't work out either a loose ball or lost possession he spent precious moments sulking and feeling sorry for himself! Luke Shaw for Man Utd had a rubbish first touch for his winning goal against Leicester but in a fraction of a moment latch onto score. Kodja needs focus and less feeling sorry or annoyed when things don't come off.

We can't afford to get on his back though because little options. Shame Green didn't have a better game after such a promising preseason. John McGinn did very well and deserved more from his deliveries into the box. Great start to the season without great performances! UTV.

Nice one Mr. Bruce another 3 points in the bag and with more players set to come in things are looking good. You have explained that we are 4-5 players down and that you are working on it, so understandably we are winging it a bit at the moment but you are doing a fine job. Mind you, first slip up and the haters will be poised to pounce but I will hold my faith and can see promotion ahead already. UTV.

Mate nobody hates Bruce, what myself and some other fans feel is that he lacks something as a manager.
And yes people will have a dig if we start throwing silly points away, we have a right to do that.
For some reason we make very hard work of finishing teams of, and that is because we can`t change the way we are set up to play.
Players need to be played in their correct positions and allowed to do what attracted us to them.
Trust me, we are far from a certainty to go up.
Tactics need to be addressed, because we get sussed very quickly, we need that elusive Plan B.

12 Aug 2018 05:14:35
If you know of a manager who is perfect and never drops silly points then pray do tell because I don't know of one. The squad is currently being rebuilt as we all know that and Bruce has already stated that he wants another five if possible but still people are requesting strikers and centre backs etc. but as soon as he gets a striker people will call him for not using our own youngsters, it's a no win situation. My point being is that you can't please all of the people all of the time and that goes for any manager in charge of a club.

12 Aug 2018 08:25:22
Playing players out of position will be the reason we drop points and he gets the sack. Jedi at cb again and he was shocking. Axel is a cb elphick who ain't the best granted but again a cb so why oh why is Jedi anywhere near that position. Nearly cost us big time.

De laet chester Axel Hutton

That's how back 4 should of been lined up until we hopefully get a lb in on loan. Or Elmo at rb and jig the middle where we have more options.

12 Aug 2018 12:08:19
Thank you KV, sense at last.

12 Aug 2018 13:59:31
De-laet has played c-b as well.
Jedi is not good enough at c/ back,
Got caught out to easily yesterday,
Against better opposition we would have lost yesterday,
Next home game Brentford?
They will rip our defence apart if we don't change,
He could bring in a c-back on loan before then hopefully,

11 Aug 2018 20:31:39
Last post surely thor has to start every game he's 1 of our better players and is a quality dm.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Aug 2018 15:22:08
Agree villa4ever Thor should keep his place big time,
I will go Mad if bruce drops him again,

11 Aug 2018 20:19:36
Good 3pts today and coming back from behind again and I’m happy! But my only problem with today is when will Bruce learn you can’t play a slow cm player at cb! He cost us goal against Sheffield last season and again today! Play players in there correct positions just seems to me Bruce don’t half make life hard for himself at times but as said 3pts UTV.

We need a lb, cb, right winger, an 2 strikers asap kodja is not botherd at all, but who can we get who is any good , snodgrass, kenny from everton at lb, rice from wham as cb, maybe defoe, an abrhams on loan, or ben bereton.

Agree0 Disagree1

Just looking at our next few fixtures and in 6 to 8 games time we could be in a great position.

Ipswich away 3 points

Brentford home 1 point

Reading home 3 points

Sheffield Utd away 1 point

Blackburn away 3 points

Rotherham home 3 points

Sheffield wed home 3 points

17 out of 21 points.

My only concern is that we have scored 6 goals and not one from our forward line.

Need to get someone in ASAP.

Made hard work of that one . Not saying Axel is a bad player, but he's not a rb . Kodjia just doesn't look interested, what's up with him I don't know . On the plus side, Thor rounded off a good performance, with a goal . he's looked good every time he's played, in midfield . What a good debut for, Mc Ginn, certainly puts a great ball in . He linked up well with Jack, looks like they could have a great partnership . Felt sorry for the Jedi, still didn't look as if he was fully fit . How about Huttons trick, typical great trick, then mess it up with the pass .
The juries out n the keeper, must of been nervous, but he has to cotrol his area better . The one high ball, instead of going over the top of the player, he tried to run around him . But over all another win, two out of two, good start .
Onwards&Upwards Villaforever.

Take that bck bout points dropped went too toilet missed goal.

Agree0 Disagree2

We are so boring to watch at times its like watching paint dry, more points dropped against a side we should be beating, i know its only 2 games but this is why we won't go up by top 2 bruce isn't good enough, he makes stupid decisions, an still persists to play at snail pace, new owners going to enjoy watching this .

Agree1 Disagree3

11 Aug 2018 19:48:24
I agree that our build up play is far too slow, however we need to give Bruce a chance to bed the new players in. I really can't see us setting the league alight with our style of play but it should keep us in the hunt until the new owners make decisions that will benefit the club, whivh ever course that may take.
