From the teams promoted the only team who you'd better on staying up at the moment is Sheffield United, did they spend as much as us, no, do they have more technically gifted players, no, do they have a better incentive package for winning, no, - for me the main reasons are Chris wilder would rather buy a player who fits a team first ethos, he has made sure they are super fit and everyone knows their job.

he also realised that not changing his squad too much by buying too many new players which have to integrated, he also realised that those who got you promoted deserve their chance first, -the premier league is world renowned for being fast-flowing, gruelling end to end football for a full 90 Minutes.

it's also known that in this league you give the ball away too much you get punished, these are not secrets to anyone, so how come we aren't fit enough to play 90 minutes even now, God help us come January onwards, we can't keep the ball and make too many individual mistakes-we're not a team yet, and that is the fault of our coaches, some on here say stop having a go, he's 'one of us' - You're incorrect:

Firstly, he's our manager and that's it, he's to be judged on that alone, and he's failing, wrong captain, wrong system, and no wrong judgement calls at crucial times, and all these things can be remedied through extra training sessions and hard work, but for me we've bought too many players who are great individually, but not team players, unless dean of shallows his pride and changes his system then he's gone in the next 5 games if that-we've no time for sentiment unless championship football is what you want next season.

Very harsh 82, I understand its your view, but way too damning at this early stage.
No wonder the divorce rate is so High, people have no tolerance or patience anymore.
If you can't have it now, stamp your feet and sulk.
Trust me things will change, give it time.


2.) 23 Sep 2019 16:10:02
We had no choice to go out and buy quite a few players as we didn’t have a squad left at end of last season. give them a chance, and we will get to the level we need to be.


3.) 23 Sep 2019 18:44:43
Class of 82 I do agree with you but we win together we lose together if we sack dean smith who do we get better?


4.) 23 Sep 2019 21:33:21
I agree, Classof82! I thank Smith for guiding Villa back to the Premier League.
But I think that we should keep him until the next five games, which are against Burnley (h), Norwich (a), Brighton (h), Manchester City (a) and loserpoo (h) .

The 4-3-3 formation isn't working, I believe that is the biggest problem right now.
With a different one like 4-2-3-1, 4-4-2, 4-3-1-2, 4-5-1 or 4-1-2-1-2, it would've worked better in the long run.
And also if either Jota or Grealish is used as a centre attacking midfielder instead of winger and midfielder respectively, that would probably be beneficial for Villa.

As of now, I think Chester would be a better captain than Grealish with Engels as vice-captain.

If Smith doesn't change the formation and collect a minimum of 7 points the next five matches, sorry, then I think he should leave.

So, there's a rumour emanating from the hallowed halls that some people aren't happy with how things are going at the moment-eyebrows were raised after the first game against the spuds when Deano was giving his after-match interview and commented on how much fitter they were compared to us? -that apparently didn't go down well, I'm not saying he's for the high jump double quick lively, but that if things don't improved coming up to Crimbo, then to coin a phrase "It's nothing personal it's business" comes to mind- before the usual mob on here start cranking and talking about it being only 4 games in, new squad gelling, it would make no sense-what a ridiculous thing to say-just get behind the manager-call yourself a fan and say something like this-blah blah blah-fair enough, but just because you don't want to hear it DOESN'T mean the conversation hasn't taken place-so endeth this transmission -UTV.

Classof82

1.) 19 Sep 2019 20:21:37
Im starting to have 2nd thoughts on deano we need to have a plan b and c i'd rather play ugly and win / i'm not saying get rid at all for me we need a jose to take us to the nxt level, yes we will prob stay in the league, but 150mil spent on 2 good players and the rest not good.


2.) 19 Sep 2019 20:42:10
4eva, why would you have second thoughts about Deano what has he done to make you feel like that, he is learning like everyone else mate.
And can I ask, if you are not saying get rid, why are you asking for a Jose to take us to the next level?


3.) 20 Sep 2019 06:30:31
Jose is a clown now and you'll never see a youth player near the team.
We've gone from "Bruce out due to winning playing ugly" to "I'd rather see us playing ugly and win".
This proves how impossible it is to please our fans.
Also, regarding there being no plan B or C, we have ended the last 2 games in a 442/ 424 which is more change than the majority of teams make. Very few teams change much of anything from one game to the next so why is it always a problem for us? Give the players a few games to actually know the system and each other to a good level for crying out loud.


4.) 20 Sep 2019 11:40:10
The Crystal Palace game plan b worked, we had 4 central mids on and we got and equaliser. it all was fair in the world.


5.) 21 Sep 2019 04:37:55
Villa dave because jose has the tactical nous to get us higher up the league and would kick the players backsides and he's a winner deano seems to nice to me, his job at man u wasnt that bad they were just bad eggs at united 3 trophys and finished 2nd not bad with a shocking united team, i'm not saying i want deano gone i'm just saying in my view i think we would be better under jose, any1 that says they wouldn't want jose as manager is deluded if there was a chance to get i'd jump at it, and plus if were still where we are by xmas i can't see the owners are going to be very happy u want the best for your buisness don't you, i like deano he's done good getting us up but i think jose would take us a lot further with his know how, just my opinion that's all,


 

 

06 Aug 2019 14:51:23
So, a little rumour emanating from someone in the hallowed halls at villa park is that deano fancies a late swoop for ollie watkins, I wouldn't be upset with that and please please no, an option as a last resort on deadline day is a pay if you play offer to the knackered old self entitled donkey that is Daniel sturridge, I hope not, he might as well change his name to micah Richards for all the games he'd play for us.

Seems the Tom Heaton deal might be back on again, I hope so, best of all the keepers we've been linked too, and also, is anyone else thinking that signing Marvelous whats-his-face from Brugge (? ) may not be a good thing, seeing as he downs tools and refuses to play unless he gets his own way? -just a thought fellas!

Telegraph reporting deal agreed at Β£8m.


2.) 31 Jul 2019 08:39:57
Don’t think it was to do with him getting his own way, the club made promises and when it came time for them to stand by them promises they didn’t want to, so he down tools. Similar to Benteke, not always a bad thing.

We played good attacking football today, Burnley have a terrible away record and it showed, but guess what, all the 'could have-should have 'tosh that some on here are going to wax lyrical on here about in the next day or so means **** all, Burnley go home with a point, May not have deserved it, but they got it, so playing football our way may be very pleasing on the eye, but we're also naive, babies in the wood, how long will it take for people to realise we need to get mean and nasty, every team in the league knows their in with a chance against us because we're too open and STILL not fit enough for 90 minutes, AND still NO plan b, we don't know how to win a game with 20 minutes or so to go, and that will stuff us over a long, physically demanding season, we don't know when to step off the gas and let the ball do the work, it's not bloody rocket science, so please ladies and gentlemen, castigate me for digging them out again, but the table doesn't lie, big teams are on the horizon who'll batter us, this game should have been a confidence builder, yet again it wasn't, trezeguet comes on and what a surprise, he gets carded, he's not team orientated, what a waste, so what now, more rose tinted platitudes about waiting for it to click? Burnley are well drilled with every player knowing their job and where are they operate within, can we say the same, too soon to PANICK-ABSOLUTELY-BUT unless Deano starts thinking about a less open, cavalier style of football, then the clouds of doubt will begin to loom, and for **** sake, MAKE MINGS CAPTAIN AND HEATON VICE-CAPTAIN, let jack concentrate on his game alone.

Classof82

1.) 28 Sep 2019 17:47:45
If you were one of the Bruce Out brigade then you're a hypocrite, simple as.
Yes, there needs to be a slight change being in a division above but it was an individual issue that let us down again.
For all of Taylor's good defensive work this season I will be the first to say he was at fault for the second equaliser.
Talking about recent form/ records is always nonsense. It's always the performance on the day. Burnley are one of the best teams away from home in the league due to their organisation. We ran them ragged for a half but players like Mcginn wear themselves out too easily sometimes.
Smith has said from day one that he wants them to take their rest while in possession but the players seem to rush around in desperation at that point which isn't what is being coached unless you think Deano is just a liar.
Burnley were overly physical at times which stopped us getting any momentum in that second half and if Targett wasn't made of China we may have been able to mix up the midfield more to regain control.


2.) 28 Sep 2019 19:05:30
I agree rk, I would just add to that by saying I think Davis needs a run out now just to make Wesley aware his place is not nailed on.
Other than that I think you are on the money mate.


3.) 28 Sep 2019 19:46:43
Thanks Dave. Its a difficult choice up top, Wesley I think is more likely to find the back of the net but Davis is more consistent with his hold up play.
Wesley didn't get much chance today, even most of the long balls were heading towards El Ghazi and Grealish rather than the big man.

Villadave, believe it or not I don't actually want dean of to be sacked, but keep feel he needs to realise that we play far too open, we're not fit enough to press for large portions of the game, so he has to change his system surely? -as for giving him 5 games max, this is because that will be over a quarter of the season gone by then, if we haven't improved then that would mean giving someone else a chance to come in, assess the squad and try and get a system in place before the winter break, this would also give the scouts to work their magic and find us some more diamonds in the rough come the January window, and the fact someone told me this connected to the staff-i hope dean of turns it around and we gel as a team very soon, so I've got my fingers and toes crossed for the gaffer!

Classof82

1.) 24 Sep 2019 12:35:31
Problem is 82, our managers no matter who it is come under attack the very moment results go against us, everything they do beforehand gets forgotten.
Villa fans for some reason are very hard to please, never happy with any sort of development on or of the pitch.
If we play like Bruce did it was one dimensional and boring, Lambert was a mixed bag and seemed scared to commit beyond a sideways pass.
Now we have a manager, staff, and owners who have taken us way past the half way line, and people are still complaining.
You and others are no doubt Villa through and through, but need to get a grip and be patient.
All great trees of the forest take time to flourish and spend time developing out of sight, then suddenly they find the daylight.
That is not a proverb or taken from a book, its a fact.

Like I've written here before, I think we should get a minimum of 7 points in those games. I believe that we will win against Norwich and Brighton, and it would probably be a tie against Burnley.


 

 

22 Sep 2019 21:56:16
Point of order gentlemen, we all want dean and the chaps to succeed, but unfortunately that will be academic when the decision lies with those who are business minded and algorithms are used to determine success viability and margins of profitability for our great club, so yes, let's keep the faith-but we all know if we don't do anything in the next 4 games then the decision is purely a matter of when not if, so let's see some guts out there i hope from the boys.

Classof82

 

 

17 Sep 2019 02:07:45
Defensively tonight we were a unit, looks like we have a very solid foundation there, I'd make minds the captain from now on, and again, Jack needs to stay in the opposition half and build a partnership with mcginn, let the others worry about defensive duties, but I think we should have banked the 3 points tonight, another good opportunity gone begging, the simple fact is we couldn't bet 10 men with 65 minutes left on the clock against a side who aren't exactly tearing up trees, Smith needs to pull his finger out give them the hairdryer for not working hard enough or put his hand up and admit we need to alter our style of play, because we are predictable for sure, and against better teams we'll get schooled.

Classof82

 

 

01 Sep 2019 23:48:02
Yes the ref robbed us yesterday, but that decision was in extra time at the end of the game, stop moaning you lot, over the season it'll even itself out, why aren't we talking about another minimum 1 point we missed out on, we have a squad that should be doing a whole lot better but ain't, smith doesn't know his best side and we're going to end up doing a Fulham, " great squad, too good to go down and yet they did, if Smith has got any cahoonas he should give mings the captaincy, play jack further up the pitch to unlock defences, drop trezeguet and play a more compact system to get some points on the board, b#ll#cks to playing fancy Dan football, take a leaf out of Burnley, get the points on the board first, and then think about playing more expansive football as the season progresses, you boys need to wake up and see we're already in the sh#te with a team that's obviously untested at this level, remember pride comes before a fall, so either Smith gives his head a wobble or the owners will bin him, this isn't sport, this is business to them, you can stick sentiment where the sun doesn't shine, we need points, not EXCUSES-LIVELY!

Classof82

1.) 02 Sep 2019 05:59:35
Wow agreed with that mate but the owners said we are a year ahead of schedule so it looks like we do have good players there just not ready at the min 4 the prem. I don't want to sack smith because he will get it right in the end but i do think switching to a 352 would help. UTV.


2.) 02 Sep 2019 06:34:41

He was one more sentence away from β€œbeing back Brucey! ”, calm down.


4.) 02 Sep 2019 09:22:00
Agreed Walkies, we all want Smith to remain and be a screaming success, but personally I think we're way to open and being honest, predictable, like you said jack needs to play behind the front 2,and what's our plan B then?, as for giving us a bad name for not sticking by the manager or team, grow up, if you realise your doing something that isn't working, are you telling me you just keep shtoom and carry on until it either works or you have to take extreme measures to change it?

whether you like or loath them, look at Sheffield United at the weekend, poor in the first half, so wilder mixed it up and got a good away point, if we can't impose ourselves on the likes of palace who are pants at home, then I'm looking forward to hearing all the excuses trotted out when we play citeh or the scousers, because they'll tonk us in the double figures for sure, a horrible thought for sure, but this back the manager and it'll be alright guff is tosh.

Smith needs to take the team by the scruff of the neck, and alter his system quickly, the question needs asking, or would you rather wait till after 10 games, before you start thinking is there a plan b, do you think the likes of trezeguet will put a shift in, he's a show pony, a lazy player, there's no urgency to get the ball back, no closing down the opposition, our fitness levels aren't where they should be and if your the opposition, all you need to do is mark the big man out of the game and who steps up?

if you think our system and style of play is going to set the prem on fire then good luck with that, we've no guile or intensity, we give the ball away too much and have no other plan, apart from that I think we were lucky against Everton, and if all you can say about the palace game is a var decision cost us, then how come we didn't put the game to bed in the previous 90 minutes?, West ham up next, we need 3 points defo. from this game, in Dean we trust, i just hope the players put a shift in for him, and us!


5.) 02 Sep 2019 13:24:06
From that I’m taking it you missed Smith bringing on 2 centre backs, playing 4 across the middle after a poor first half and down to 10 men. And it was one of them subs who scored the goal which by the book should have gave us the point. I’m not sure how else he could of mixed it up.


6.) 02 Sep 2019 13:29:09
It's 4 matches into a new season with the majority of a team that have been there 2 months so yeah I think we need to wait 10-15 matches before we know exactly what the team are capable of.
This lot are performing much better than the Sherwood/ Garde crew imo.
Take away 2 silly mistakes at Bournemouth and the ref from Palace and we could have been on 4/ 7 points. We were never going to be able to dominate games from the off.
Palace are statistically poor at home but they were decent enough against us. Some of that was down to us but just because a side has been bad somewhere doesn't mean they always are.


7.) 02 Sep 2019 16:59:37
Wow some of you guys are on drugs πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

We played pretty poorly, however we have no Devine right to win any match against any team in the league

Also note that the entire game was disrupted by the referee booking our players needlessly time and time again . Meaning they was walking a tightrope fearing getting sent off which inevitably happened .

Kevin Friend is a joke of a ref, with no consistency and was not booking palace players for similar fouls

Four games into the new season and it’s already started . It’s just boring! If we was on 6 points we would be in 8th place! Let’s get a reality check .

I also may add that we have only won one game at Selhurst Park in 40 years!

I love Aston Villa, I also take on board all opinions . However if your going to talk absolute bull πŸ’© then be prepared for someone like me to call you crazy feckers out

82 and WTW . give your little heads a wobble boys .

#mundane

We have spent Β£150 on new players . We have no devine right to win games . We have brought players in order to compete with rival premier league teams .

Back the players and the manager.

Well said walkies, he was a giant for us and campaigned endlessly behind the scenes promoting football in our region-a colossus and a true football man, many a charity got sizeable donations from him which he never took the credit for, and woe betide anyone who slated not only us, but anything to do with the region or its people, I doff my cap to him with the upmost respect and admiration-God Bless A Great Man and a Gentleman.

Davedean-mings was top draw in the championship for us for sure, but the premiership isn't the same (which you know already for sure), I hope he's a screaming success for us, but just going on what I saw last season, and speaking to a few Bournemouth fans, they all agree, he's prone to a major ricket or 2 when under pressure, and his injuries they said were down to over exuberance, I'm hoping under j. t. he'll florish, but all the signs are there, if I'm wrong, happy days, but expressing an opinion is what I thought this site was for, if we sign sturridge (please God no), does that mean I've to sing his praises even though I thing he's pony and looking for 1 final big pay day?
