I thought after about 30 minutes that Saturday was going to be a shambles but the second half showed exactly what we can do when they attempt to play. Bolasie was absolutely shocking, I can remember one ball into the channel for Tammy to chase where I thought "yea that was decent", other than that everything he did just didn't come off, and the basics like a first touch just wasn't there. Mcginn was probably the saving grace again, wished he got his head up more though, twice he carried it 30/ 40 yards steaming forward but didn't look up early enough to play a pass to the lads in front of him and it just fumbles out into nothing.

Green looked up for it off the bench, but I did always think he was better coming on than starting. The defence was a shambles again, I don't even think it's the centre halves anymore, without Tuanzebe it's left to Chester the bring the ball out, something smith has said is part of his philosophy, but Chester can't really do it, he ends up playing people into trouble, on the defensive side though him and Elphic look fine to me, it's the full backs where the problems lie, they always allow players inside instead of showing them down the line, they just look out of place.

The biggest problem to me is still that number 6 position, smith seems to like set player roles in the midfield but neither Hourihane or Bjarnson seem able to play that defensive midfielder role, Bjarnson had a pass accuracy of 55% Saturday, that's appalling for a centre mid, we are never going to win with that. I think Jedinak could do it, we didn't win a game the first season down here without Jedinak playing and that was when he was used in his rightful sitting midfielder role, he's big enough and physical enough to give us a presence, he'll protect the back 4 and we'd be conceding less, and I think he's good enough to get the ball moving! I know he's been injured for a while but when he's fit if we can't find someone in the market, he should be given a chance.

We came back from 2-0 down against the in form team in the league, let's build from this, smash Ipswich and go into the final half of the season the same way we did smiths first few games!

According to other sites Charlie Colkutt signing imminent.

Why do we want him he can't even get in Shrewsbury team.

20 Jan 2019 18:43:35
Don't ask me.
I want a miserable centre half who hates everybody, including his team mates.
Someone they have to keep locked up and starving until kick off.

Putting a squad together to challenge for promotion is not an easy task for any manager, however putting a squad together when you've not even had one full transfer window is impossible.

If you don't give Smith the time to build his own team how can he possibly succeed? How is he to realise his potential when idiots call for his head before letting him build a team.

Foolish fans who expect instant results are deluded, gone are the days of being able to pump millions into the club to put a team together in less than one window.
I say, get real and give the man a chance and ignore the comments of the impatient.

Except he works as a coach, not a manager. He has openly said that while he may provide general input to what the squad requires, he doesn't like to be involved in anything further.
His only real requirement seems to be a willingness to learn and adapt which is all well and good but ability is necessary.
The problem for us is that we will be priced out of moves for genuinely good players due to being Villa which leaves us paying over the odds for average players. The majority of these players either know they are at their pinnacle with us so happy to pick up their top wages and stop trying or are using us as a stepping stone to the EPL and are arrogant and selfish.

Yaya toure a free agent, wouldn't mind him till end of season.

Agree2 Disagree0

19 Jan 2019 09:45:59
Wouldn't say no but he wouldn't drop his wage demands anywhere near what Terry did. Minaola certainly wouldn't allow it.
He'll probably end up in China or US.

19 Jan 2019 22:29:52
What happened to wanting a young team?

21 Jan 2019 18:51:51
LMAO. yeah. get rid of bolasie on 80 k and get you're for double.

18 Jan 2019 22:19:18
Anybody else noticed that over the last 2 days the odds of Tammy joining wolves with bookies have gone from 5-1 to 5-2, and today 11-4. That's a little shocking (and worrying).

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jan 2019 09:17:20
He had to be recalled by the 14th. He can’t have his loan cancelled now until end of season.

15 Jan 2019 09:05:17
Anyone know when Jack's back?

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jan 2019 17:04:42
Latest reports from the club suggest he'll miss the few and aim to be back for the Sheff Utd game.

13 Jan 2019 23:36:09
We all know our defence, has been terrible lately . But didn't anybody, hear Deano say, that Chester is carrying a knee injury. In other circumstances, I don't suppose he would even be playing . This just goes to show, what a defensive state Brucie left us in . Iv said before as an ex defender, you would think that would be his first priority.
Come on Deano, kick a few backsides and get that energy and spark back .
Onwards&Upwards Villaforever.

Cheer up. It's only Paul Lambert next week.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Jan 2019 00:14:30

15 Jan 2019 17:51:07

Things get emotional after a frustrating inept performance and whilst this is not particularly helpful it is understandable. So as things calm down let's look ats what's happening. A new manager comes in and gives the club a boost, players lift their game and fans get behind the team. People think we are on the way up. What happens then, opposition coaches analyse what's happening and hey guess what, we get found out, every opposition coach know our weaknesses and exploit this. So everyone knows we can't defend. So what do we do to counter this, simple answer, nothing. And whilst we do nothing to improve we will continue to struggle. So poor defence with no obvious improvement, surely we haven't employed people that can't at least shore things up whilst new personnel are sought.

I've said for ages we need plans A, B and C so the opposition don't know which one we may use on any day. You're right scottcafu teams have sussed out our weaknesses, hence why we need to change the way we play from time to time. the high press is great until it breaks down but again the worry was two of the goals came down our left flank again.

Just seen a report that we are looking at Adam Reach from the Owls and talking 10m.
Anyone else know about this?

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Jan 2019 05:38:44
Yes I've seen a few reports of this. Be an interesting one to follow.

Take more than signing him to stop us sliding down the league.
