Reading some of the paper talk about FA, UEFA whoever wanting to get the leagues and cup competitions finished this season by cramming as many games as possible into a short time frame.

I'll say this : my opinion of footballers is they're overpaid, privileged and live in they're own little bubble worlds, far removed from average Joe working public (tho they may be nice people I may add) but, to expect them to perform like circus animals to meet their agenda, is borderline ridiculous.

They are human beings after all and many have friends and family who will be affected by this horrendous disease, after all it does not discriminate position, race, creed or religion. Common sense should prevail so that everyone is safe and secure to hopefully return to normality as soon as possible and if that means the money men have to take a hit then so be it.

LIVES ARE MORE IMPORTANT THAN MONEY! We're all missing our favourite sports and seeing our loved ones but we as a nation should pull together to stop this terrible disease and ensure that everything humanly possible is done to achieve that end.

Cancelling sport is not the end of the world, and we'll all face hardships along the way, but please FA UEFA FIFA whoever, do the right thing for humanity, not the people who count the money.

Hear Hear.

Well said Moose. The adage that money makes the world go round is the saddest reality of life.

30 Mar 2020 12:21:51
Yeah well said Moose.
I will just add, a quiet word in Jacks ear and a slap would not go amiss here.
He may be ours, but that does not take away the fact that he is an idiot and a moron.
The bloke needs to grow up, behave like a sensible adult, that is the second time he has made himself look a P--tt.
I am incensed by this, think of the people he has put at risk.

30 Mar 2020 12:36:43
And he’s the captain of our team, Dave. Doesn’t that say it all.

30 Mar 2020 13:07:16
If selfish people want to realise the importance of self isolation and social distancing then they should watch the first 10 minutes of the film Contagion, stop and think for a moment what, however trivial seeming, their actions could lead to.

30 Mar 2020 13:39:43
Like you say Mark, he is the captain, how can you have a person like that, be your leader and figure of inspiration, madness.
And yes Moose, its frightening mate.

30 Mar 2020 14:14:45
I'd question his judgement on 2 fronts: firstly the hypocrisy of telling fans to isolate and then going to a party; secondly, what the hell's he doing hanging around with Ross McShortarse?

30 Mar 2020 14:21:31
I assume McShortarse has moved into a flat as, from recollection, houses are technically too difficult for him to get out of in order to attend training 😊 😊.

30 Mar 2020 14:25:32
I bet if he was round we Jimmy Crankies house I bet the gates were working 😂😂.

30 Mar 2020 14:51:59
You beat me to it Menace 😂😂 and another good quiz to get my head around.

See You Next Self-Isolation

Watching MOTD premier leagues greatest goal scorers on Saturday night got me thinking who and how would I rank the greatest Villa goal scorers I have seen since I started watching the Villa in the early 70's. I accept this is a subjective judgement based not only on the goals scored but also the contribution to the team things like work rate, assists and also the style of the players involved. but I put it out there to be shot at and I am sure that it will and I am also sure I will have missed someone major off the list but you guys will undoubtedly let me know

1. Yorke
2. Gray
3. Angel
4. Saunders
5. Dublin
6. Withe
7. Carew
8. Shaw
10. Benteke.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Mar 2020 21:40:57
Think Platty should be on that list somewhere John,
incredible strike rate for a midfielder. His work rate was pretty amazing also and I doubt many on your list provided more assists.

29 Mar 2020 23:02:47
Take your point Mark but I always considered him more of a goal scoring midfielder rather than an out and out striker which was why I didn’t consider him.

30 Mar 2020 07:37:10
Yes but compare his strike rate with the number 1 on your list.

And Finally... Feb 2020

Ok would any of you like to solve these anagrams not anything to do with football Star Trek characters.1=comely candor 2=ok pcs 3=ahoy a uturn 4=pavlov cheek 5=scent got my motor 6= i sulk uhura 7=jet ski mark and the bonus anagram the rich skip rope. All of these are from the original series, just a bit of fun and hope i have done it correctly.

{Ed002's Note - Please keep all of these coming.}

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Mar 2020 14:03:44
Got some of them Villaman, but I’m going to leave this one for somebody else mate, even though I must admit I was a Star Trek fan. Don’t want to be accused of being a glory grabber, lol.

{Ed001's Note - I would need to google to find the names of the characters. I tried watching that Picard show, got a few episodes in and just couldn't follow it because it kept bringing in characters from a previous series I had never seen. I had no idea what was going on!}

29 Mar 2020 08:42:01
Ed002, are they doing anything like this on other clubs’ banter sites?

{Ed002's Note - You are doing much better than the others.}

29 Mar 2020 14:49:14
Got them all villaman being a bit of a star trek fan plus Ed001 binge watching while we're all on lockdown might pass some time because Picard is worth watching I also recommend Star Trek Discovery.

{Ed001's Note - I will give that a miss, I am just not a Trekkie. It does not appeal to me at all sorry.}

29 Mar 2020 15:31:43
Ed’s, I’m in the process of putting together a boxing 🥊 anagram challenge, as I know there are many boxing fans on this site. If you want to post it on other clubs banter sites to give them something to help pass the time during this difficult period, please do so. The same goes for my previous football grounds challenge. I don’t think the ones on Aston Villa players would interest them, but maybe Moose’s World Cup goal scorers would do also.

{Ed033's Note - ok thanks.

28 Mar 2020 08:19:35
Here's the answers to my World Cup Goalscorers anagram quiz
hope you enjoyed it let me know how you got on and stay safe.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Mar 2020 08:35:32
Good quiz Moose, thanks, made a change trying to solve one.
Did you get those last 3 of Menace’s marathon?
I could post the answers if you like and you could then rest the old noggin, 🤯.

28 Mar 2020 09:31:21
Yes Mark got them all in the end tho did have to Google 7 as was really frying my brain lol it was the extra P that threw me.

28 Mar 2020 09:49:56
That annoying Swiss defender, I never particularly rated him to be honest, 👍😄.

28 Mar 2020 10:00:24
Yes mate bang average defender and stupid spelling of his 1st name 😂😁 2 Ps is enough unless he was incontinent! 👍.

28 Mar 2020 10:22:59
Reckon Menace was having a laugh when he put that one down, ha ha. 🤣.

28 Mar 2020 10:35:47
Certainly got me stumped. so good I'd forgotten (or tried) that he'd played for us. Mind you there's a few more on the list I wish I could as well 😁.

28 Mar 2020 10:49:21
No what you mean mate, Joleon Lescott springs to mind 👎. A bit naughty of Menace, reminding us of him.

28 Mar 2020 11:29:45
Yes mate self isolation can certainly send your mind in some weird directions, fortunately my collection of singing potatoes is keeping me sane 🤔.

28 Mar 2020 11:49:50
Singing potatoes ? now you’ve got me stumped 🤔.

28 Mar 2020 14:40:56
What made me laugh when I was putting them together was how a couple actually describe the player - No. 23 definitely and possibly No. 2 in his younger days before he got his head straight 😊.

28 Mar 2020 16:21:34
You’re not wrong there MD, Tom Daley would have been proud of some of Ginola’s dives. 😉.

28 Mar 2020 17:35:22
Think you would of found it difficult to make an anagram for 3 that reads "waste of space arse tweeter", maybe if you'd included middle names? 🤔 though I did deliver the papers to no28 when I was a kid even invited me in to chat and show me his medals 😁.

27 Mar 2020 15:20:31
Can you name all 16 clubs Jack Grealish has scored against for Villa?

Jack Grealish has scored 24 times for Aston Villa after bursting onto the scene as an 18-year-old.

The playmaker has experienced highs and lows with his boyhood club, losing FA Cup and League Cup finals at Wembley in addition to captaining the club back to the Premier League.

Grealish’s goals have been scored against 16 opponents across the Premier League, Championship and EFL Cup.

Take our quiz below and see if you can recall all of the clubs that he’s scored against in a Villa shirt. You have five minutes to name all.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Mar 2020 10:26:16
So Leagues below the National league are void, why, is it because they generate no or little income?

I think the Premier and EFL should void this season and start afresh next season, but the points from this season should be added on.

That way Liverpool stand a chance of winning the premier which we all agree they would of anyway. Also Leeds and the Baggies start as favourites for promotion which is only fair.

The FA cup and European cups could just be carried on from where it finished this season and perhaps the games could be televised live Europe wide on a mega Saturday or Sunday.

I don't know what anyone else thinks but I think to escape relegation by voiding the season isn't the best outcome for my team.

Absolutely Daz, 8pm a moment in time.
I am humbled, and proud.

26 Mar 2020 23:19:54
Absolutely agree. The NHS is and always will be the jewel in the crown of British society. Unfortunately, President Chump has no idea what's coming his way with their disjointed, get-treated-only-if-you-can-afford-it healthcare system. They've got 82,000 cases tonight and Chump seems to think it will all be over by Easter. A bit like WW2 was going to be over in 6 months?

26 Mar 2020 16:59:12
OK fellow Villains, here's the next anagram extravaganza. All these have regularly played for the Villa first team, mostly from the 70's through to now. There is one real 'oldie' on here, but he's a legend so you should get it. This is a bit of a marathon as there are 30 on my list, so it will probably take you until Saturday by which time Moose should have revealed the answers to his quiz. Good luck - hopefully I haven't missed or added any erroneous letters 😊

Bloody hell Menace that looks a real brain scrambler I'll give it a damn good go but expect my head to explode 😱.

26 Mar 2020 17:28:20
I am sure a man of your calibre can manage it Moose. However, if your head does eventually explode, can I have your antlers to hang on my wall 😉.

26 Mar 2020 18:09:29
And spoil my "majestic creature of the Woodlands"look? 🤔😂.

27 Mar 2020 08:57:10
Phew 😅, think I’ve got them MD, I don’t know what’s harder creating them or working them out.
I won’t post them just yet, let’s see if anybody else attempting it manages to gets to the finishing post as well. 😄.

27 Mar 2020 15:49:14
Just had a couple of AHA! moments and now only need no7.

27 Mar 2020 16:57:25
I think 7 was the last one I got as well Moose or might of been 30.

27 Mar 2020 18:33:15
Menace I think I've got 27 but the last 3 are baffling my noggin 7 24 and 26 probably be obvious when you give the answers and a real lightbulb moment lol its passed a fair bit of time tho so well done mate.
