Don't know how I feel about that.
We all know what's going to happen.

Dad says I can play football
He'll then get called in for tea.
Takes his ball home with him
Screws it up for the rest of us.

So Neil Critchley takes over first team training.

I confess to being a bit relieved. This so soon after Michael Beale departure seems like we had a plan. Why did I doubt it? Don't know much about him but it's better than last year when we just seemed completely taken by surprise to lose our first team coaches, and were totally unprepared for the season start.

Stevie G knows him from,guess where Liverpool.
He did a great job at Blackpool,can’t understand why,he would want to take a backwards step .
Onwards&Upwards Villaforever

Dave, tripling his salary probably influenced his decision mate

So we are losing Michael Beale by the looks of things. Anyone else worried by this? Last year we lost JT and ROK and look what happened. Ultimately cost DS his job. Why have we not made him an offer he can't refuse? We're spending it for fun everywhere else.

1.) 31 May 2022 14:13:36
Different circumstances but this definitely feels like ROK all over again, the managers main man leaving. Hopefully we find the right replacement this time or Gary Mac can step up and have the same effect on players.


2.) 31 May 2022 16:47:46
Sometimes Villa56 it isn’t about money it’s about wanting to be your own man and testing yourself against other coaches. I think it will be interesting to see what the club does because I have read a number of reports which suggest that he is the brains in the outfit, that being the case then we need to be smart in who we recruit to replace him


3.) 31 May 2022 17:01:02
Seeing twitter Alonso is being lined up as number 2


4.) 31 May 2022 18:09:46
Sorry about my ignorance Villdaz but who is Twitter Alonso


5.) 31 May 2022 18:13:35
I think he means people on Twitter are suggesting Xabi Alonso.


6.) 31 May 2022 18:20:10
Number 2's come and go, I've faith he will be replaced and we'll be fine - Onwards and Upwards!


7.) 31 May 2022 18:35:35
Lol AKA Xabi Alonso on some twitter sites being touted


8.) 31 May 2022 19:06:50
Ok Villadaz, at my age I have no interest in twitter and certainly won’t be getting an account.


9.) 31 May 2022 20:03:18
I am not sure that Alonso is a legitimate rumour I think it refers to a quote Gerard made when he was finishing off his playing career and just about to start on his managerial journey when he said his dream number 2 would either be Alonso or Carragher. Given Carragher’s Sky commitments I think some people are putting 2 and 2 together and possibly coming up with 5.


10.) 31 May 2022 21:21:27
That’s what I have read as well Loti.


11.) 31 May 2022 22:36:33
The amount of coaching staff he had I would imagine Gary Mac just steps up as the official number 2 and at most we add another coach.
Number 2s may come and go but their influence can be massively overlooked.
United started slipping after Queroz left even though Fergie managed to keep them competitive. While we had a short term surge under Shakespeare it felt like the steady foundations ROK and Terry provided were eroding beneath the surface.

Well I had hoped to get a big name manager when Dean Smith went, and I suppose everyone in the world has heard of Steven Gerrard. I was hopeful, and happy to give him a chance. He talks a good game, but the bottom line is he is out of his depth. Where does it go from here? We were potential European places, playing attractive football, but now we are sucked into a relegation fight, not knowing where our next goal is coming from. Make no mistake, this game is a turning point.

Stevie G next job will be as a ‘pundit’ working alongside Merson and Sherwood ?

Great result. Poor first half, again, and yet another disgraceful misinterpretation of the rules by the VAR official.

Villa56

1.) 06 Dec 2021 10:53:44
Sorry Villa56 whilst I think the law is bloody stupid as Goalkeepers seem to get more protection and support from officialdom than any other outfield player, the rule as it stands was correctly interpreted by the official after checking via VAR and the goal was correctly chalked off.


2.) 06 Dec 2021 17:26:38
Well we can agree to disagree, I suppose, but the text I read stated that immediately after a save, or a rebound from the goalkeeper one hand wasn't enough.

Looking at the training photos, seem's like Dougie might be fit.

Villa56

1.) 23 Nov 2021 17:54:02
Fingers crossed mate, we have missed him, and Bert I think we have missed and I rate him more than Buendia tbh, a midfield of maginn, Doug and marvellous has both an air of defence about it and also the ability to attack with maginn and dougie, I didn’t think Ramsey contributed much against Brighton but he’s still developing and has great potential over the next few years, I think he can be a sure starter every week in a year or 2 but I don’t think he’s there yet


2.) 23 Nov 2021 20:04:32
Ramsey runs with the ball though. None of the other midfielders do that. A bit like Barclay when he plays well, and he is a bit more consistent than Barclay. Just needs to develop his eye for goal.

And Mings

£40 million, I think, will seal the deal. Whenever the quotes come from overseas sources it seems to have a bit more legs. I think it is looking likely.

Maybe Mings is off to Newcastle?

There is a question mark over his character as well. I'm not too disappointed that we seem to have moved on. He would have cost a lot too. It's all money we can't spend elsewhere with FFP.

I saw it too. If we had signed Papa Mata Sarr it might be believable. But we didn't. As it stands we don't need to sell, do we? Can't see him going even for twice that.

Some very tidy finished on his highlights reel. Definitely an upgrade on El Ghazi.

The jury is out, but I am heartened that you know a bit about him, and encouraged that at least we seemed to have a plan.

BK,Do you know anything about Neil Critchley? IMHO First team coach is *the* most important role at a football club. How often do you wonder why a team packed full of talent under-performs or conversely a team punches above their weight? It has to be the tactics, motivation and training. Granted you need quality start with, but there is more to it than that.

Is that a 4-2-3-2 system Raj? Probably not allowed, although we would definitely have an edge.

I think the £100k from Jack has helped FFP. It will be the combination of fees and wages that has a ceiling, and the gates post-covid will help. Tarkowski on a free, Coutinho on a free, all helps.

As far as dressing room harmony goes, it fees like we are entering a new era. Players step up or get replaced, so do it on the pitch and you get a better contract will be the message.

It will be interesting to see how it pans out at the start of next season.

I don't think we need him, do we? I doubt it will happen.
