for weeks I've been saying this and most time i get moaned at but why is it we have one decent set piece taker (constantly on bench conor h) we have one decent striker (injured for god knows how long) and no midfielder who can create or shoot at goal?

said from moment we went of lansbury its a crap buy and he is going to drag the midfield down more than it already was and so far point proven,

its a must that in the next few weeks we go and either buy (if FFP allows us to) or loan a striker who can actually hit a shot and head the ball, damn if need be a player like crotch will do. and a player who will run at defenders and shoot from midfield (just not sure who fits that bill)

Lol player like crotch!

Mate it's easy to say "said this from the start" "said this when we" but without evidence you talking rubbish, step down from the high horse. Makes you sound a tool.


3.) 18 Aug 2017 07:01:45
Actually Crouch would be an intelligent signing. Good with both head and feet and brings other players into the game.

as much as i wanted the man to do well and still hope he can i can't help but wonder. why does garde still have a job? i think its clear to see the man is not right for the team at this moment in time, sack him off and get someone like moyes in for at least the rest of the season if need be. pearson was my call to 4 games ago but he is not the man we need now.

i have only seen the highlights of the game today but jan can't come quick enough. guzan (have back him all the way but can't do it anymore), richardson and westwood are the first players we need replacing, how do we battle like that last game then play this way today?

and clark? absolute belter for ireland but for us shocking.

we was very unlucky to lose yesterday, but the fact is we wtill lost.

for 45 minutes we was the better team and should have been 2 up by half time from what I've seen of highlights, but all that being said i think i feel the same as most when i say tims got to go.

if moyes really has come out and said he wants the job and that's not just paper talk i think we need to get on the next flight over there and get his name on the dotted line.

but something needs to change before its just too much for any manager to fix.

strikes

1.) 19 Oct 2015 09:48:10
unlucky or not he has to go before its too late, guzan is a clown always putting defence under pressure westwood has no idea what to do with the ball sideways or backwards hutton is hit n miss you never know which one will turn up, why he hasn't given kozak a chance is beyond me and if randy still insisting on selling and wants top dollar he best have a word in TS shell like and tell him buck up or pack up simples!


2.) 19 Oct 2015 21:12:30
no arguments here. as you say the man has to go.

personally this should have been his last chance if not the liverpool game, two teams struggling at the moment bottom end of league they was both there for the taking.


3.) 20 Oct 2015 12:08:27
I admit that I was swept up by the initial TS feel good factor last season. I have just more than a sneaking suspicion that he is losing/ lost the dressing room and does not know what to do to get us out of the mess we are in. I am certain he will go after the Swansea game. Being linked with a manger such a David Moyes is too good to pass on. He has a proven track record, with 13 years experience in top flight, and far less risky than TS, even if he comes in and stabilizes the situation to get us up to a solid 14th /15th by new year would be a huge u- turn in fortune. If Lerner leaves it any longer we will be bottom of the table by Christmas with about 13 points in the bag if we are lucky. so a dead certainty to be relegated this time.


4.) 20 Oct 2015 20:31:01
I think we all were and tbh i'm a bit disappointed we never picked up from where we left off, I know we had about 12 new players but so did a few others and they seemed to start well albeit having a faltering moment lately. I had real high hopes during the close season but thinking about it, all them losses we had was the writing on the wall then? and for TS to keep bleetin on about having the spine ripped out of villa, delph n benteke hardly the spine tbh and cleverly just used us as a stepping stone even PL and AM had a better start to there season than we are having now I can't for the love of god understand what the hell has gone wrong being so angry is an understatement the mrs has even threatened to hit me with the rollin pin if I thump the laptop one more time and as for these stupid mail interviews oh the dressing room is buzzin we going do it this week were full of confidence geeze stfu and do your talkin on the pitch get us back up the table were we belong show some pride! and before anyone says calm down ill give meself a heart attack it already happened lol back in may the sunday after the fa cup geeze Rant Over VTID!


5.) 20 Oct 2015 22:05:57
Hi Ged
Sorry to hear about your heart attack, strange that, it happened to me as well, I was in hospital for the semi against Liverpool, couldn`t watch the game mate.
I try not to get worked up now it`s not worth it, dam hard though.


6.) 21 Oct 2015 06:17:14
hi dave
yes mate the day after we was trounced by arsenal doctors at Coventry hosp took the p*** out me lol still waiting to have another stent put in hope you are well mate YES supporting my beloved villa seems to be very frustrating and annoying of late was realy realy hoping we would be up there with all the promises TS made how we will never struggle or fight relegation again oh well roll on the weekend onwards and upwards!


7.) 21 Oct 2015 14:19:30
Yeh I am getting there Ged, can`t` stent me because narrowing is on what they call branches, so its medication for me mate.
I fancy us to do Swansea this week to be honest, and thought we were ok against Chelsea first half, I would stick with the same side this week except for Guzan the error man.

my wife has just told me i need to get a life. got bored yesterday and spent a good hour going through all the premiership teams and looking to see which players are getting no game time this season and wondering who we could get in on loan or buy in January,

i think she may have a point.

1.) 15 Dec 2017 18:09:05
More important is what names you came up with as possibly available.
Next you can tell her your studying the geography of the world while looking for someone who can score. This way she will think (know it's dangerous but), about a special holiday.
Hope this helps. I tried it and am allowed back in the house at lighting up time?
This is 2 hours earlier than usual!

3.) 15 Dec 2017 22:12:15
Mate there are some really good shouts on there, but we no chance of getting batshuayi, Shaw, Mangala, Ihenachio or Slimani.


4.) 15 Dec 2017 22:21:04
Are you suggesting that we should be ars-holding.
Not sure this would be a good thing.


5.) 16 Dec 2017 05:27:40
From that list Afobe, Shaw, Adam and Long, wish all of them but Christmas is a time for miracles

UTV.

{Ed001's Note - Walcott is injured, Mings has a long term back problem that keeps afflicting him, Drinkwater was struggling with injury and only just getting fit now, Holgate is first choice for Allardyce, James is injured, Grujic is injured and has a work permit that requires him to play first team football for Liverpool when fit, Ings is still returning to fitness from an ACL injury, Mangala is unlikely to go anywhere with Stones and Kompany being injury prone, Long lost his place due to injury though he is back fit now, Afellay is injured a lot, Bojan is on loan, I assume you mean Adam rather than Adams he is available, Lamela has been out injured for over a year and just returned to fitness. That is just off the top of my head so I could have missed a few injuries or loans.}


6.) 16 Dec 2017 09:30:42
Afobe or Ulloa would do.


7.) 16 Dec 2017 11:24:33
Ulloa is my choice for the loan striker.


8.) 16 Dec 2017 12:39:07
as i say i was just going by the game time they have had. i know a few have been injured and have come back but then when you look at what's in team ahead of them they will struggle to get back in team,

hopefully we get a few good players in even if it is just a loan.

{Ed001's Note - I wasn't having a dig mate, just trying to narrow it down a bit for you.}


9.) 16 Dec 2017 13:49:28
no that's fine, i knew what you was saying and by adams i meant charlie adam.

{Ed001's Note - I thought you must do, but there could have been an Adams there so I was just making sure. I didn't know of one, but you never know.}


 

 

16 Aug 2017 11:21:46
i know people are going to act like i'm a fool for asking this but why is everyone so desperate for sherwood back? as far as i remember he was the manager in charge when we got relegated and he hardly had a great win record. other than the fa cup run all i remember is the amount of abuse the bloke got for being "tactless tim"

now i understand that he had a shocking team at the time but i still don't see the thinking behind it.

strikes

1.) 16 Aug 2017 11:34:24
I totally agree. We need a progressive manager, someone with a bit of vision.


2.) 16 Aug 2017 12:02:30
Just a thought - Nigel Pearson?


3.) 16 Aug 2017 14:53:59
On the face of it tactically he was clueless, so long term we would end up in the same position. However he wasn't too proud to change things and give different things ago, he always went for it and set us up to be on the front foot and he is most likely to hit the ground running same as last time. If we were to sack Bruce and there wasn't a manager at the time who jumps out as the proper candidate then I'd get sherwood on a 3 month rolling contract whilst we source a full time man. His passion, energy and commitment would get results from the offset, it's when all those things become the norm to the players and he has to rely on tactics an such that's when he begins to fail.


4.) 16 Aug 2017 15:08:49
Gary monk would of done well had we gone for him.

not a tranfer rumour more of a "where are we in the football world? " question. do people think signing for villa is a step down from celtic? other than the thought of champions league nights what would people think to having a stab at the likes of Griffith from celtic?

3.) 10 Jun 2017 23:37:19
In status, in stature and sadly league position.
Champions league, sell out crowds, and realistic trophy chance.
They can only beat the team in front of them, so it's a mute point talking if league calibre.

They ARE a massive club. We are not even a big club anymore. Sadly.

We have to realise this, and cut our cloth accordingly. The sooner this penny drops the sooner we take the first step back to what we could/ should be.


4.) 11 Jun 2017 17:44:19
Griffith a sound player i would like to bet his wages are bigger than we could offer at the moment. As for league callibre, don't think you can compare. let's face it the scottish leagues are piss pot in comparison to ours.

"I'm a villa fan through and through, I came through the system here and the last 5 years have been the best days of my life. I've got a year left on my contract and if the boss offers me another I'll be signing it" - unfortunately for Craig once you say something you can't take it back, embarrassing bloke.


5.) 07 May 2017 21:17:13
Jack is infuriating for sure could be so much better! He has found aan eye for goal but whether now sussed out by opponents his general flare and contribution to the team is less than good. I trust Bruce to make the necessary hard decisions and must have a competitive side come July with or without Jack UTV . I'm boycotting Harvey's Bristol Cream at xmas!


6.) 08 May 2017 18:27:43
If jack has a bad game everyone is on his case, if jack has a good game everyone is on his case. What the hell do you lot want yes he can get better but come on guys give him a break. There will always be a section of our fans that just want to whinge. The same people will never be satisfied.


7.) 08 May 2017 19:40:04
I agree with your last sentiment claret about the moaners however I have to agree with what most are saying about Jack he infuriates me yes he has the ability but you look at most players his age Ie Deli Ali, Dier, Barkley etc etc he won't even lace their boots.

Villadaz, take your point, I don, t mind constructive critisism there is a place for that. Its the moaning, and critisism for critisisms sake that gets my goat. let's hope the bruce buys well in the summer window mate, and off loads the deadwood. I love this club of ours and like yourself want the best for it. I, ve been a fan since i was five years old 59 years ago. Have seen some brilliant players pull that claret and blue shirt on.
