Much as I am grateful for the fact that we have consecutively beaten two of the division's bottom-feeders, tomorrow's game will be the acid-test. If we can put in a good shift against Huddersfield away, then perhaps we can then say that we have turned the corner. Does anyone know if Bjarnason and / or Grealish are likely to have recovered from their knee injuries in time?


1.) 06 Mar 2017 16:28:29
Think you are bang on menace. its been very good the last couple of wins, however the true test will come when we play teams at the top end of the division. It will be a tough ask, but hopefully the lads will take the confidence built up from the last couple of wins into the game with Huddersfield. another decent shift needs putting in make no mistake. It can be done look at forest takin out Brighton. their position should not put us off. NO FEAR.

2.) 06 Mar 2017 16:41:51
Both Bjarnason and Grealish are still injured and will not play.

3.) 06 Mar 2017 19:15:39
Kodjia out on the left and Davies in the centre from the start? Or Amavi left wing. Only options if we keep the formation.

4.) 06 Mar 2017 20:32:45
Can't see why he wouldn't start amavi. He is quick and has a good delivery. Surely that left wing position would be ideal for him? Doesn't have to worry too much about defending just get down the wing and get the ball in.

5.) 06 Mar 2017 20:41:04
Have we fallen that far that if we put a good shift in tomorrow against Huddersfield we might get something.

Yes I know that they are third, but. Huddersfield. It just makes me sad when a few years ago we were on the cusp if champions league football :- (.

6.) 06 Mar 2017 21:00:03
I know what you mean mate but that's the new reality at the moment
We can wallow in self pity and sail down the divisions reminiscing about the glory days or we take the bull by the horns and crack on.

7.) 06 Mar 2017 21:36:58
The only place amavi should be is leftback-leftback in the changing rooms is all he's good for now, since his injury he's been going missing in the tackling department, harsh to say maybe;but he's more a liabilty, good going forward, but going back, sad to say he's got a mental block, you might as well play him as a winger only now, a shame, but he ain't no full blooded defender now, sell him in the summer and re-invest, simple as.

8.) 06 Mar 2017 22:10:46
We play to full potential we beat Huddersfield, no doubt.

9.) 07 Mar 2017 16:35:10
Lets look at this logically. We won't make the play offs, we're pretty safe from relegation looking at the points required in previous seasons, so let's blood some of the youngsters and see how they go. You never know they may save a few million in the long run.



01 Feb 2017 09:04:54
No final word on Hogan? Call me Mr Cynical, but is there a possibility that the transfer deal also included 3 vital points for Brentford tonight?


1.) 01 Feb 2017 13:10:07
I agree with the doc we need patience now but i was a bit miffed as to why bikir lasted that long on the pitch last night as he looked knackered after 30 mins oh well



31 Jan 2017 21:05:21
Apparently Dimitar Berbatov is in the UK and about to sign for an unnamed club. Please NO!!


1.) 31 Jan 2017 22:15:21
Newcastle I think mate.



31 Jan 2017 15:59:43
BBC just confirmed we have signed Bedeau from Bury for around £900,000 with add-ons.




31 Jan 2017 15:48:15
Hogan definitely in talks according to the BBC. Forest interested in McCormack - aren't they in enough trouble?


1.) 31 Jan 2017 21:03:28
6PM - Pat Murphy reports that Scott Hogan's having a medical now and we will pay Brentford £9m rising with add-ons to £12m.

2.) 31 Jan 2017 23:45:35
Mistake selling Ayew he's our most creative spark plus we didn't replace Gestede! If Mcormack has gone we're now short on strikers!

Can whichever of you geniuses has the direct line to Dr Tony let us know exactly what time we'll be announcing JT today. I can't stand the suspense.


1.) 01 Jul 2017 15:07:04
What do you guys think of john ruddy coming to villa as it looks like johnson could be going elsewhere.

2.) 01 Jul 2017 15:07:56
The signing of the old couple Terry and whelan about to be posted as I speak!

3.) 01 Jul 2017 15:11:50
Seems strange that it's always a circus when Terry is involved?

4.) 01 Jul 2017 15:17:34
Ruddy better than Johnson,
Hope we get him.

5.) 01 Jul 2017 15:37:34
Been reading the pessimistic and truly negative comments of the last few days. Bruce to be sacked, Terry a bad influence and a racist. The guys that are putting out these posts ought to look to themselves. This league we are in is notoriously difficult to get out of, regardless of who you are. regardless of what players you have or don't have. To say get rid of another manager to slag a player of proven worth before he has even pulled the shirt on to play for us. Well who needs enemies.

6.) 01 Jul 2017 17:08:13
dont care how much of a nob head terry is as long as he does the same job he has for years at chelsea. blokes been one of the best defenders prem has seen, may have lost a yard or two but you don't lose the knowledge of how to play the game,

7.) 03 Jul 2017 16:27:09
This Johnson saga of will he, won't he is dragging on. Why not get Ruddy in as we will need another keeper anyway? Have Villa spoken with Ruddy, does anyone know?



08 Jun 2017 13:33:07
Ok - here's a shot in the dark. Costa has been told by Conte that he is no longer required at Chelski. Costa's preference is to re-join Atletico Madrid, but they are banned from signing any players until January, meaning Costa could be kicking his heels needing match-time for 5 months up to Christmas. In my mind it would be worth paying the astronomical wages for 5 months in order to springboard as high as possible up the league by Christmas, let alone the physical damage he could do to various bluenose players in a single 90 minute period. I'll go and have a lie-down now .


1.) 08 Jun 2017 17:46:32
😂😂😂😂😂😂. Oh my god!

No there is more 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

Best post ever in terms of absolute chatting 💩


2.) 08 Jun 2017 20:28:08
I'd take it with a bit more water in it next time mate.

3.) 09 Jun 2017 09:47:11
About the same chance as Labour having a good election.
Oh, what happened there!

4.) 10 Jun 2017 01:06:33
Like the thinking behind this but it'll never happen, don't stop thinking outside the box tho mate 👍🏻




30 Mar 2017 14:40:30
I see that FIFA has now launched a formal investigation against Neil Taylor's tackle on Seamus Coleman. If they choose punitive action, does anyone know if they could suspend him from Championship matches or would it just be from World Cup qualifiers etc?


1.) 30 Mar 2017 14:55:38
I don't know about any suspension, but will his head be right?

Seems to have knocked him about a bit?

2.) 31 Mar 2017 10:30:04
I don't believe it affects the championship just world cup games. let's just hope that referee, s don't go out of their way to penalise every tackle that he makes. The situation is such that it could spill over in this way.



08 Mar 2017 10:27:04
There's no doubt we looked a much better team last night - earlier in the season we would probably have taken a real kicking. However, we still need to be sharper with the finishing. Just one shot on target for the whole 90 minutes tells the story - if you can't hit the target you ain't going to hit the back of the net.

One off the bar and one off the post for Lansbury, and Hourihane blasting over from 6 yards. However, we did stop them, playing in the middle of the park and forced them to go long, plus we weren't so leaky at the back. Promising signs, just better finishing required.




15 Feb 2017 10:44:01
Summarizing last night's stats:

57% of the possession
83% of the corners
76% of the shots
Lost 3-1

Someone mentioned somewhere that we are playing 'stable established' teams. Really? I thought we just removed 20% of Barnsley's best first-team players during the transfer window. If that's not destablilizing, I don't know what is.

2 main problems currently: we clearly can't score and we can't defend. Apart from that, everything is fine. Perhaps the reason that the keeper's failings are so much the focus of people's attention is down to the fact that he has absolutely no cover from the 10 blokes in front of him.


1.) 15 Feb 2017 13:45:07
No cover from the players in front of him? Play with no keeper last night and we lose 3-1, he is useless, distribution is awful, players screaming at him to play it short quick and get it moving - nope he holds the ball arms come out waving everyone forward and he lumps it up.

Players want it out long quick for the break, there's a man unmarked - nope he waits and waits till their whole team is back in formation and pumps it up. As for the second goal it pretty much sums him up, Sunday league keepers save that.

BBC WebSite this morning reporting that Redknapp has made a firm offer to Terry stating ' we would love him in Birmingham'. Yes we would, but not playing for Small Heath Alliance .

You mean the one that says 75%- (75%+X)? I would assume that means there is a 75% chance of us getting an incomer with an associated outgoer plus some cash. So Rhodes for Grealish plus some cash.

So here's a thought: In order to avoid the embarrassment of agreeing terms with another club and sending a player all the way over to Spain for a medical which he then fails, why don't we run him through a medical at Bodymoor first so we know whether he's likely to pass or not? Seems like we may now be lumbered with another expensive millstone round our necks since Seville seem to think his knee is still knackered.

According to the French press - because that's the most reliable source on information on Spanish football ;) - Seville have cancelled the planned press conference due to an 'inconclusive' medical.

What we need is another McGrath. Irish Villain - pop down to your nearest bar and, if you find anyone who has been in there for at least the last 3 days without leaving, sign them up!

Spot on. This will sort out the men from the shirking freeloaders. No more hiding at the back hoping no-one will notice you. This is exactly what we have been missing - a strong no-nonsense captain of this calibre. One of our best signings in years - well done Mr Bruce and Mr Round.
