You can't judge most things on pre season friendlies, it's about getting fitness levels right and players getting used to each other. However certain basics are fundamental to playing good football, when you have Taylor on his right foot in front of goal and hasn't got a clue what to do that's inexcusable.

If you have Bree at right back and doesn't know how do go forward. You have Hogan who tries to run around a defender and is five minutes too late. So hopefully Deano has seen enough to make sure average players don't feature this season.

Slightly harsh. think Taylor only had 1 chance on his right foot in front of goal and there were about 8 bodies between them. Can hogan do much more? He’s a centre forward playing right wing and still managed to bag a goal.


2.) 22 Jul 2019 10:50:35
Taylor put his chance on target aswell, can’t help it being blocked by someone.

Everyone used to love Hogans “intelligent runs” and slate Bruce’s football for the reason he couldn’t perform, glad everyone’s starting to realise he makes runs down blind alleys in which Pirlo would struggle to find him. Good lad, hard working but not that great a player.

If Deano played Bree to put him in the shop window sadly it backfired.

He was equally as awful last pre-season. Unfortunately his passing is woeful and his lack of game time results in an extremely poor reading of the game.


2.) 18 Jul 2019 08:59:04
Shame because Bree was very highly rated at Barnsley I thought was quite a coop when we signed him. I think
He was badly managed by the old regime. I think he could of done well had he been better looked after. He may have to take a step backwards to improve his own game. I’d be happy to loan him to a decent championship club where he could get some games under his belt, grow in confidence and flourish.

Anyone heard any news about Mile Jedinak, Alan Hutton or Glen Whelan, I appreciate all three were towards the end of their career, however they were all good professionals and were ultimately victims of our success. I hope they are all able to offer their experience in some form in the near future.

Good call Scot Cafu

Think hutton off to forest
Heard whealan linked with Blackburn
Not heard anything on jedi

I thought Jedi May of been ideal as a player/ coach would offer a lot of premier league experience in this very inexperienced squad. That’s not a complaint about our squad I’m fully in support of the approach we are taking.

Guys guess the team for next Sunday, no Jack no Mcginn no tammy? . My bet would be hutton, elphick, green, Davis, Lansbury will all play, 11 wins would have been good however protect your vital asetts for the playoffs is far more important.

And we shouldn't give Leeds any extra knowledge on how we play. We could meet them in the final (fingers crossed we get there)


2.) 06 May 2019 10:05:29
I believe that we will get there and win it. Up the Villa!

The current league table tonite makes depressing reading, so our season is shot so my message to Deano and the players, play with freedom and show us what you can do, we are safe so there's absolutely nothing to lose, let's at least get some pride back.

scotcaffu

1.) 02 Mar 2019 09:14:44
It looks bad but 8 points isn't insurmountable. If the team put everything into a good run then 8 wins and a draw out of the 12 would get us to 70 points which could see us sneak in there.


2.) 02 Mar 2019 13:13:13
Come on mate there's more chance of me winning lotterey.


3.) 02 Mar 2019 14:00:35
I didn't say it was likely but none of the teams standing between us and 6th are setting the league alight either so we shouldn't be throwing the towel in just yet.


4.) 02 Mar 2019 17:12:50
Totally agree rknewell, unlikely but still have that outside chance.


5.) 03 Mar 2019 18:04:50
Win at the cow shed and we go above BCFC.
Forest and Hull play each other so again a win at the cow shed and we can be in 8th.
GD better than Derby who play Wigan and Wednesday and the way they are going they could lose both so we could go 7th.
Lets believe
Our talisman is back, and did we see a more advanced roll for Hourihane?
Mathematically we are ok, we can make it. Every season we have a dip in form and then we rally.
This season is no different.
WE CAN DO IT, BELIEVE! I DO.


6.) 13 Mar 2019 21:59:59
Not so depressing now, is it?

It certainly looks as though Ming's has signed which to most villa fans is great news. I am reading on twitter that Bournemouth fans think they have ripped us off. Two reasons why this is the furthest thing from the truth, one, the villa fans love him and I genuinely think he will give us everything he has, something that didn't happen at Bournemouth and secondly and more importantly, I don't think we would have been promoted without him, I appreciate that is subjective however look at our results since he joined, so the price for the premier League is reportedly is £170 million, so the £18m (which I am reliably informed is the actual figure) is fabulous business. Well done Mr Purslow.

We don’t need to justify the price tag mate, if the owners are comfortable paying it then it doesn’t matter if it’s 20 million or 200 million.

We all know about silly money for players, we recently speculated about the £50 million rumoured from super John McGinn, I have just watched Paul Scholes in the Premier goals 100 club. Based on today's inflated prices I just wonder how much he would fetch if he was still playing in his prime. He was twice the player Pogba is so thst makes it £300 million by my reckoning.

We all love McGinn, he was a breath of fresh air this season and rightfully player of the season. Regarding the £50 mill speculation, one twitter comment without foundation has generated news on a quiet news day. His agent has probably tried to get his client a new big financial deal and who could blame him. I highly respect John and hope he has a long and successful future at VP however he is still an unproven commodity in the next level up and my personal view is he will struggle in the top flight, hope I am proved wrong, however top defenders will not allow his arse first style to be effective.

Wasn’t a Twitter comment mate it was Alan Nixon wrote an article. He usually gets things right and was first I saw to break that Tammy was staying in January when everyone else was reporting he was gone.

Not to be outdone by our many signings small heath have found a way of outdoing us they will have 11 new players at st Andrews next season, they are called Coventry City. How it must hurt, that gypsy curse sure was spiteful.

Just read Glenn Whelans interview regarding his release from the villa. He found out from a journalist that he was being released, this is an absolute disgrace from the senior people at the club. I appreciate Deano had tried to call him, however until every player had been contacted by the club personally the press should not have the information. Just imagine any of you guys who are employed found out you were being fired by a third party. I was employed as a senior HR manager and this is an absolute no no in how to treat people, poor show Aston Villa.

You have to put out a retainer list, whether they like it or not. Not nice to read and should have moved heaven and earth to contact him but if his phones off and he’s on holiday what can they do?

Kenn the brutal realty is he was probably to good with a sharp brain for those around him at small heath, hence he didn't fit in and wasn't a first choice starter.

TOV, bit naive if you don't mind me saying we are short in more than the Ch position, that wouldn't solve all our problems.

Dave none of us should forget, owners need to understand that there is no place in modern football for the likes of Bruce, mad mick, puliss, Hughes, Big Sam, moyes, keeping on reminding fans of these guys failings may just save other clubs from the dross that these so called experienced managers dish up. Good news is message is getting through not many of the aforementioned are currently employed in league football.

Kenn, it's pretty obvious to me that average players who are then morphed in to average journalist can only make headlines by making crass and ill informed comments. Like many others I watched pretty much every minute of Ming's performances last season so I would like to think I have a more balanced view on his abilities. Not withstanding his playing performances he brought something more interms of his connection with both players and fans alike. He may have some shortcomings in the premier league however, give me Ming's over Jones, Stones, Luis, Smalling. I am looking forward to the challenges this coming season knowing that it's not going to be easy, however after the great day at Wembley I am going to be patient for sometime.

As usual cavfc is always right, none of the managers have shown faith in either wellbeck or sturridge, let's pay them 100k a week to join McCormack.

Did sturridge and wellbeck set the premier alight, no! Did they show class at times yes! Could you trust them to play a full season definitely no! Is it worth the risk to pay them a fortune for z risky return definitely no! . So I am confident Deano will leave well alone.

Dave, couldn't agree more, he couldn't cut it in the championship, not a prayer he can step up in the prem. I am sure everything is in hand because what we currently have up front is nowhere near enough to cope in the prem. I think a lot of our signings, which is usually the case in the transfer window will come late, which is not ideal, as we need a good start to the season. In Deano we trust however he doesn't have a magic wand and things are not going to be easy.
