19 Oct 2017 00:38:07
Lol what game is he on about? Should we all be at Villa Park? He who drinks Australian is Australian.

17 Oct 2017 16:01:44
Now that Leicester have sacked there manager could Bruce be a replacement?
Could we be that lucky!

Agree0 Disagree1

17 Oct 2017 18:34:34
If I said this I would be castigated lol.

18 Oct 2017 01:07:51
They don't want you nuts WTW!

Oh, different word. sorry.

18 Oct 2017 07:44:11
My comment on Bruce was in jest only
I'm not a Bruce fan as you know but I've said he should be left to do his thing this season
If we are then still not going up then things have to change,
I have said if Bruce takes us up he should still be replaced because I don't think he is tactical aware for the premiership,
Buts that's for another day.

18 Oct 2017 17:50:21
Good KP dry roasted are the ones for you lot you will enjoy them more.

Just read how Aston Villa signed David James it was all down to Sir Doug Ellis. David James was at the horse racing with some Liverpool players they was drinking an a bit drunk but that was fine it was there day off said James. He Went next door where Sir Doug was and James said how are you?

Sir Doug replied not good we have just lost the best Gk in the League to Man Utd. When James said after a few drinks 2nd best Gk Sir Doug said who's the best then and James pointed at himself. Next day Sir Doug puts his bid in and even get him on cheap wages.

I love Sir Doug best chairman ever you talk of super agents he personally brought us Dwight Yorke David Ginola David James not bad hey. that's when football was great you had chairman who cared about the clubs and actually under stood football who was there 24/7 running the club.

Bill Kenwright, Doug Ellis, Jack Walker, Freddy Shepherd, so many more some of the chairman now days wouldn't know a player from a butcher yes they have money but so much gets wasted because they don't actually understand what there buying its a toy for them.

Agree3 Disagree3

17 Oct 2017 13:41:14
Good chairman but nailing the stand after yourself come on.

17 Oct 2017 18:33:56
Lol you wouldn't do the same lol he deserves it when he very 1st brought the club we was in a right mess he saved us so for that reason I would say its a good idea. Even he owned the club the 2nd time he weren't bad.

17 Oct 2017 20:47:25
Agree with you WTW, he did make mistakes but so doe`s everyone.
He also did a great deal for Villa, and loved every brick and blade of grass of our great club.

17 Oct 2017 21:06:31
He did brilliant for us I didn’t dispute that, ran it like a corner shop and did right by us. But as I said, naming a stand after yourself, you let other people do that for you, like Alex Ferguson, Kenny Daglish etc, just a bit arrogant to me.

17 Oct 2017 23:33:30
Chris he wasnt being arrogant he loves the club that much that when he passes away there will always be a little bit of him still there which I think is so nice mate as people come up with all sorts of excuses for not going games but this guy even when he is in his 90s still goes home and away he loves the club more than anybody.

18 Oct 2017 07:04:22
They’d have probably named one after him any how after he retired, same way lots of other clubs have done, no one would ever forget him stand or not.

18 Oct 2017 16:08:44
My gripe about Ellis was that he did not like seeing villa win the European cup when he was not in charge
Then when he came in the players who won us that cup all were sold,
He is a good chairman but a very arrogant one
He kept a tight ship but he really does love the club,
To go to every game now home and away at his age is unbelievable really.

18 Oct 2017 18:46:57
About your first point Bob, I think it is more about disappointment than not liking.
Believe me he was happy we won the European cup mate.

17 Oct 2017 08:03:09
I see the u21 played well again last night with o'hare man of match,
Bruce only brings this kid on when we are losing in the final minutes of game,
He brings a spark whenever he plays and surely needs more playing time,
I also think that lyden needs to replace Whelan,
Not only is he younger he scores the odd goals and will bring more pace to the midfield,
We have some decent young players and should not be disgarded
We do have a record of young players not getting enough game time,

Agree1 Disagree0

17 Oct 2017 09:38:22
Mainbob what worrys me is we have no pace in the team and when we do play teams with pace eg Wolves and Cardiff we don't cope well. Pace in football terrifies people even the blues have pace with vassell now we need to bring players through slowly I know but when you have people like Glen whelen who can't keep up with play anymore and even Jedinak its a old midfield with them. footballs a young mans game so why not give youth a chance? Last month was a easy month for us but we still did well if I was offered the playoffs now I would take it.

17 Oct 2017 10:13:13
A few premiership scouts at the game last night,
How long before we lose the likes of o'hare/ lydon/ hayes/ sulaman?
I can see this coming and Bruce needs to get them involved in and around the squad,
These players above are all very talented and must not be allowed to leave while we have the likes of certain players who should have left this club years ago but are still here!
No guessing who I'm talking about,

17 Oct 2017 13:41:48
Not this again, there’s scouts at every game.

16 Oct 2017 13:04:06
Hey lads, look on Aston Villa rumoursnow, it shows Villa fans fighting amongst themselves, looks to me like Flackie and Walk the Walk have finally met.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Oct 2017 13:12:28
Saw it earlier, quite embarrassing but have to laugh at it, some bird in the middle red faced kicking off between all the blokes.

16 Oct 2017 13:21:53
I think Flackie is great, would be borring if we agreed all the time.

16 Oct 2017 18:17:01
Lol no comment!

16 Oct 2017 08:15:03
Not got any problem with villa losing a game of football as long as they put in effort to try to win the game themselves,
But Saturday's game was not acceptable for me on the lack of effort by most of the players essentially in a derby,
The most one-sided derby you can get and wolves players must think Christmas came early for them,
We played the best team in championship for playing attacking football yet where was the closing down and the game was to open to allow there flair players to run riot,
You can blame the players or the manager for lack of awareness but one thing is clear we need a win Saturday because with birmingham coming up the following week it could really be crunch time,
We are still in touch with top 2 which is good because other results went our way and we did not lose any ground in table,
So come on villa put the Fulham side to the sword and show our great fans that you really want to get us back to the promised land,

Agree1 Disagree0

16 Oct 2017 12:54:12
Well said Mainbob, the one thing that worries me about fulham is that they play till the final whistle, don't give up, and i think i"m right in saying they've either won or rescued a game in the last ten minutes on a regular basis, so here's hoping brucie makes them put down their doughnuts and have a fruit and veg smoothie instead!

16 Oct 2017 13:20:28

I agree about Fulham,
They to are a good footballing side with some serious pace in side in forward area's
We will struggle against these type of sides due to our lack of pace in defence area's
Whelan and Terry were really up against it on Saturday and when the blues game comes around the following week they two have now some pace up top with vassel and Adams,
It's going to be a very interesting next 2 games that's for sure,
Up the villa anyway!

16 Oct 2017 13:23:39
I have said it time after time that we are the most unfit side in championship
We can't play high tempo football for longer than a few minutes
We tread treacle in second half on a regular basis,
What are our players doing at bodymoor?

17 Oct 2017 05:01:39
I reckon their dodging the salads and going for the stodge Mainbob! as for fitness, a couple of talking heads on the radio were saying they thought brucie has adopted the slow-burn technique, apparently meaning kinda steady-eddie paced as a matter of course, with shòrt bursts of high tempo when able, not sure i agree with that explanation, but they said it means less injuries over the season, and coming towards the end of the season, in theory players have more in the tank to up their game? above and beyond my thinking, but there you go!

Virgil van Dijk

16 Oct 2017 05:41:44
{Ed's Note - we have posted a new player profile about, Virgil van Dijk

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Oct 2017 16:55:09
Forget all about agents, cheating and sour grapes. We have been comprehensively beat by the top two clubs. Cardiff were shown to be average by Small Heath. Too many die hard fans are too quick to defend poor lacklustre coaching and inept footballers. Football is supposed to be an entertainment industry, the Wolves fans were certainly entertained yesterday. I would love to be entertained at VP sadly this will never happen under Bruce.

Agree6 Disagree0

15 Oct 2017 19:16:22
I think everyone on here has said that we were second best yesterday and they gave up second half, some posters were just pointing out the obvious flaws in the system at wolves to do with FFP. No one has defended our performance from yesterday.

16 Oct 2017 05:34:30
So what are you saying sack Bruce? When do the players take the blame? why is it always the manager I don't like Bruce but apart from Hutton not 1 of them players 2nd half gave a dam. Its there job they should at least run there socks off close teams down and battle doesn't matter what talent you have hardwork will always win and if you are not 100 per cent at your best the least you can do is put the effort in. What a funny game it would be if players were sacked for performances?

15 Oct 2017 14:48:58
What are peoples thoughts on snodgras and whealan? For me whealan can't start for us and snodgrass to, if greallish is fit. The games moved on now its about pace an we lacked it yesterday in mid and out wide where snodgrass played he's to slow . we need jedi bck fast an play ohare in mid also young borg at lb.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Oct 2017 15:30:43
Whelan is awful, we need Jedinak back. Snodgrass that was his first performance where he didn’t look up to it, can’t drop him off the back of one game.

15 Oct 2017 14:14:53
Did i hear right on hear a wolves fan said there bigger club than us don't make me laugh 1 good season in probably bout 30 years 😂😂😂 . now they start where they been all these years until now plus we have played 10 games nothings won after 10 games same nothings lost aswell . we will see at end of season if there champs il 👏 but not now jesus typical wolves fans deluded idiots think they need to look history books to see how many titles an cups they won .

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Oct 2017 15:33:38
The wolves at present look a decent side with the big backing of fosen
They have a proven manager and have brought in top young Portuguese players,
They play a very adventurous way and they may or may not go up this season,
They have pace all over the pitch unlike villa who are pedestrian in build up play,
I really do hope villa and wolves both go up this season,
There is a good chance of that happening in my view
As for Whelan he needs to be dropped he offers nothing in my opinion,
Snodgrass is decent but I know he has not got great pace but he has good delivery on set pieces,
The main problem i see with villa is this slow tempo and lack of fitness,
Would like to see o'hare involved more and kodija needs a kick up back side,
