I think we need a reality check here regarding the up coming season. if you take away the dreadful start 10 points from 11 games and the poor February (combined we got 12 points from 16 games = .75 points per game) . and we got 62 points from 46 games.

take away the 16 games and 12 points from the 46 games and 62 points then we have 30 games got us 50 points = 1.7 points per game. now ad that average into the total season 16 x 1.7 = additional 27 points which would have given us 77 points and that would have put us 7th.

yes we have to improve on last year but we are not far off who knows how many additional points we would have picked up without these 2 periods of low confidence. yes we need to sort out quickly the keeper situation. assuming JT comes the defense is sorted.

we need cover for Jedinak. and a creative player on the left (Jack Grealish not consistent enough and runs into too many blind alleys. be optimistic not pessimistic we are in a much better place than 12 months ago.

I agree mate we was great at home and to be honest it was nice to win at home again that hasn't happend for about 10 years so welldone Bruce. But we need to win away and this is where Strve Bruces tactics let us down he plays the same way as at home where away i belive we should be more counter attack. Iam looking forward to this season but it will be a lot harder than last year. Fulham Reading Leeds not to mention boro an sunderland are all going to be going for automatic this what i said many times Brighton and Newcastle hardly lost a game we have to be like that and that means wining every week no excuses. Great post mate.

Sunday I think will be tighter than people think due to the fact that we cannot score without Kodjia, but predict Birmingham will not finish with 11 men and Villa to scrape a result 1-0.

looking forward to summer deadwood sale - Bunn, Kozac, Richards, Flabby Gabby, Gardner, Tisbola, Sanchez, McKormac, Vertout, Gil. Amavi. should raise £15 million. who should SB get in? assuming he keeps the rest of the squad including the kids, i think we need a centre half, left back, back up defensive midfielder, Keeper, wide right / winger.

Apart from gardner every one else on that list is spot on. let's get rid of the lot of them. also agree with what we need coming in. for far to long we have held on to players who don't deserve to wear the shirt.


2.) 20 Apr 2017 22:43:07
You got some figures behind that mate? We signed Veretout for 12 million, and he's had a stormer of a season in the French league, shouldn't be making a loss on him.

Gil in today's market is about 10 mil surely, what with having a decent season for deportivo. Sell 12 players and bring in 5, leaves us ridiculously short when injuries come (look at the injury list from January / Christmas) and then a transfer window like that leaves the team not knowing where they stand with wholesale changes not what we need again. 3 or 4 will do fine, quality additions who Bruce wants early in the window so a full preseason, sell a few who won't be involved at all as Bruce sees fit.

Next season is one of the biggest in the clubs history in my eyes, last season we can flex our muscles in the transfer windows before FFP really starts to play a role in our dealings, should we fail to go up next year I can't see it happening for another 4-5 seasons. We get one chance at it, we can't afford to feck it up in the summer at the first hurdle!


3.) 21 Apr 2017 13:18:40
Agree with what you said about next season chris, ffp and the need to put it all together in our push to go up. As you say we can, t afford to cock it up. Like yourself mate just want the best for our great club, I thought when we went down that it would take us three to four years to get back where we belong. Hoping of course that we would do it in two or three, Its such a tough league to get out of. Next season is so critical .

Aston Villa - the team who forgot how to win. Too many draws. Not any where near good enough in defense, no creativity without Jack = another year in the championship/

Must keep Mings, Chester would also like Axel this depends on what Ollie does at MU.

Tammy will return to Chelsea I assume so either we need another striker of Davis needs to do what Tammy is doing. 2 new fullbacks please. and finally can anyone tell me why we got Hause from Wolves? because if he is not better than Taylor he must be bloody useless.

Davis can't do what Tammy does, not in a million years.
Maupay is the alternative.
Mings is a must keep. Understand we have first refusal at an agreed price.
TZ also a must keep if poss.
Chester needs to pick up his game.
Keep on saying that we can score goals but can't stop em going in our net.
Weakness is definitely at the back where we need the leader.
It really isn't rocket science, just look at the For and Against figure.
When Jack is back we will still score goals but if the back line is as flimsy as it is we will still concede.
QED.


2.) 11 Feb 2019 20:50:52
Axel and Jack shouldn't be too far off returns if on schedule. I think you'd be surprised how Jack affects us defensively, the ball comes back at us a lot less with how he holds onto it and draws fouls. Won't stop us conceding full stop but reducing the attacks usually reduces the chances.


 

 

30 Jan 2019 11:55:54
why all the rumours about strikers and midfielders? our problem is DEFENSE so get some bloody defenders firs. I admit we could do with a better midfield but if we stop conceding goals it makes winning so much easier and we are scoring goals even with the poor midfield.

Couldn’t agree more
Need an old school centre back who’s not afraid to give players an ass kicking on the pitch

Suppose the 2 midfielders we are linked with would help as they would provide more cover for the defence being younger and more mobile than what we have.

any predictions for tonight? Mine as we are away and unlikely to keep a clean sheet 2 games running is 2-2.

Unfortunately, you were right.
But here is our seven steps of glory

Stoke
Leeds
Swansea
Preston
QPR
January transfer window
Champions of the Championship.

for me that was the best Villa team performance for years - we were better in every position, and the players all wanted it and put in a shift.

lets hope we now play round pegs on round holes - Chester and Tuanzebe mus be the CB partnership at lease until January. JT will take Axel under his wing. Bree must be RB and Cafu LB (I know that is a square peg in a round hole but the choice is hobsons) . Thor must play.
Hopefully - whelan, and Jedi are consigned to the bench or even lower. We need to be more dynamic that they can offer. O Hare has to get game time for more creativity, maybe from the bench.
out at Xmas/ Jan - whelan, Albert, Lansbury, Taylor, +any one of the keepers. + Richards.

DAVEDEAN - because he is rubbish, if he plays as much for them as he has for us he will restrict their scoring rate - what is he goals per game ratio?

Bruce will have to re assess the squad when he knows what squad he has to work with. 3 at the back could work especially with someone like Huth in the centre but we would need to find someone with pace like Walker as cover CB. (Tanuzebe? )
Up front we need to keep Kodja if fit will always cause defences problems. asuming Jack goes (and who could blame him) then we need to blood Ohare, RHM etc. I think Thor if he stays will be influencial next season.
Get rid of DeLaet, Almo, McGatestuck, Hogan, Richards if possible, Taylor, Whelan, Tshbola - could raise £10-12 mill?

we will still be in the championship even if we win the next 3 games stop dreaming and be realistic our stats/ points per game are worse than when Bruce was here and they were poor then.

would not go with that team - my team
Kallanic
Hutton, Elphick, Mings, Hoarse
Jedanik

Carroll mcGinn
adohma Tammy Kodja

Subs
Steer
Davis
ElGhazi
Chester
Thor

Chester needs a rest so would only bring him on for an injury to mings or Elphick.

i agree too many drawers again - too many points lost from winning positions. defensively no where near good enough. we are haqving to score 2 goals every game because we cannot keep clean sheets - looks like championship again next season.

I think we are resigned to another season in the championship. The team are not good enough. Far too fragile at the back. keeper not good enough. People say we have a great forward line, if that is the case where have they been this season? mid field - how many of our mid field would get into championship top 6 teams - Mcginn +? i do not include Jack as a mid field player as I think he is a number 10, however good number 10s have goals in them (Sheringham, York, Bergkamp) Jack does not have that in his locker at present ans he is running out of time for him to have potential. why do other top Championship teams look quicker than us, fitter than us, defend as a unit better than us.
