Just watched Chester clearance from last night over and over again! Looked amazing from where I was on the Holte but seeing it from different angles what an amazing piece of defending! Brilliant and hope continues to build confidence! One Paul McGrath would have been proud of VTID.

I completely understand it but really hate when booing happens. Worst when at players but really uncomfortable today with we want Brucie out chants! I have been a bit of a fence sitter and as soon as I have headed towards enough is enough he seems to get a lucky break such as last year Davis coming in and clear air talks before boro away win!

This now feels very different in that he seems lost and cornered, too afraid to take risks. Today was awful but is a reflection of most of our performances in patches or in full such as Sheffield Utd away!

We are pedestrian, musical statues with no music just inept on the break! No one left higher up the field during set pieces and playing so deep for too long.

There was a spell after the wonder goal when could see what energy and attacking flare they could produce so it must be something in the instruction and reigning in of expression of themselves.

Too many poor performances from individuals who should be much improved with a leadership change.

I fancy owners don't need any booing to see such a meagre win rate and a team with no cohesion or identity is in need of either another Bruce lucky break or sadly a new search for a manager on Monday?

Don't fancy Sheerwood and not sure Mendez could repeat miracle in the West Midlands. Not to be too predictable but Dean Smith, however would need time so no chance of PL return this season I fear unless he can kick start our stars into becoming a team VTID.

Total common sense analysis of our situation, only thing I would disagree with is i'd say Sherwood has unfinished business at Villa, and would know what to do with the over abundance of flair/ attacking players we have, defensively we're screwed whoever takes charge. Only glimmer I can see for the defence is if Chelski pay up Cahills contract and he moves to us, we should never of let him go, I'd give him a piggy back all the way to B6 for that goal against the Nose alone


2.) 24 Sep 2018 10:38:16
In all honesty, Sherwood did really well for us in his short period during the 2014-15 season. It was when Lerner decided to interfere with player signings next season that everything went downhill. The 2015-16 is our worst performance to date. It's no wonder.

try sniffing something different.



31 Aug 2018 23:31:29
Just watched all 26 goals for Tammy Abrahams for Bristol City last season! Very impressed with his Fox in the box displays. Loads of latching onto loose balls, goalie parry outs and also some really confident and inventive efforts! Can't wait to see how he gets on with service from new attacking signings. We are fortunate to have a fair start to the season to build on and now need to really muller some opponents big time! UTV.

Nail biting closure of the window! So delighted that Spurs, Chealski, Man Utd or Man City didn't get our best shining star Alan Hutton! Also pleased Jack is staying and will be up for the promo push!

1.) 10 Aug 2018 09:48:37
Milan and Real have still got time to buy Hutton, or Jack. 😉


2.) 12 Aug 2018 23:18:16
Crazy window deadline and rest of Europe!



17 Apr 2018 18:21:33
Just paper talk but rumour that Leicester City are after Jack Grealish following in footsteps of Albrighton and Gray both young brummy young talents? If we don't go up could Jack move to improve his England chances?

1.) 17 Apr 2018 19:24:46
Yeh, read the same article nick, I have a feeling that grealish could be another agbonlahor, in the sense that unless some club comes in with a ridiculous offer for him and us, he may well stay put.
Man cty, Man utd, or a top foreign outfit might tempt.
I might be wrong but He is a home boy, so unless we plummet I think he will stay put.

2.) 17 Apr 2018 21:46:58
Must get promoted is under statement! No pressures ladss.

Good to see Ian Ross remembered today, he was my first villa captain when I first went to Villa Park. That shows how many years I have been going, the highs and the lows. At this time when we all need to pull together and be realistic I cannot believe the madness on this site and phone ins on local radio calling for Dean Smiths head just 4 MONTHS after his appointment! We are a massive club by name but cannot expect Deano to come in and fix overnight years of decay. I would expect, regardless of his villa roots, we all would be united in wanting to see how he could convert the Brentford model into our beloved club?! Youth, pace movement, high tempo, playing high up the pitch and an attacking style to die for. We saw some of the testament on Wednesday. So how on earth can you expect to build this in 4 MONTHS with only a measly January window. Ron Saunders was not an immediate success nor was Fergie at Utd. I hate seeing this season slip away but look forward to Deano having at least summer and next Jan windows minimum to start to make pathways back to premier league. WRITE OFF THIS SEASON AND BACK DEAN SMITH AND HIS BACK ROOM TO GET IT RIGHT 2019/ 20 season and stop this madness of managerial changes of recent times! VTID.



26 Aug 2018 16:00:46
Have been ruminating over the last week about Ron Saunders and his struggle with Dementia. So sad and really hope at some time we could have a statue at Villa Park to celebrate his greatness for the club. When Stan petrov was ill we had 19 minute applause and would love to have 81st minute applause for Ron Saunders but how do we get something like this off the ground? A true hero for the club and should be celebrating his achievements UTV.

1.) 26 Aug 2018 16:45:59
Nick brilliant idea, I’m sure the powers that be, would Agee to that . The man deserves some sort of acalade .

2.) 26 Aug 2018 16:59:28
Nick I echo your sentiments about Ron saunders.
A true great in our proud past,
He deserves some think from villa to show what he did for the club.
I've always thought it was wrong to name a stand after a owner like the Doug Ellis stand,
I liked Doug Ellis but I think a great manager or a player is better for that,
So why not a stand named after him.
That's my choice of remembrance of a great manager and a great man,
And I wish him well, in his fight with this terrible disease.

3.) 26 Aug 2018 18:08:37
Hope he gets better a villa legend some things more important than football.

4.) 26 Aug 2018 23:36:49
Villa4eva, sadly people don't get better from this cruel illness, however families get support from people's kind wishes like yours, it definitely puts things in to perspective, football is just a game and whilst we all moan, life is far more important.

5.) 27 Aug 2018 01:36:37
Didn't know that gutted thanks Scotcaffu.

6.) 27 Aug 2018 11:24:53
Have emailed the club and hope message will get through to the powers that be? Many people can live well and a have a good quality of life despite their dementia but over time the progress of the illness can be very disabling with people needing full nursing care, spot on about family support. Reports about Ron are that he has lived a good few years at home with his family with this illness but recently has become so dependent that needs 24hr care in a home. Dementia does not respect greatness, class or status. Really good to hear others sentiments in replying posts. UTV PS Any statue must have the words “would you bet against us” on the base! Classic Saunders quote!



24 Apr 2018 22:52:18
This suspension is getting very painful, well done Rams in keeping the automatic promotion dream alive?! So reminds me of 1987 as possibly a last day, injury time marathon! One can but dream that SHA beat Fulham to see us go up lol!?



12 Apr 2018 12:06:22
Back at work in the Black Country and the big debate today is who scored the best goal, Grealish or Neves last night? With my claret and blue spectacles I see it as this: Neves was further out but is there more skill in Jack hitting it first time rather than controlling it first to set yourself up like Neves did? I think Jack's wins it for me but was this week beaten by Ronaldo's so not totally blinded by the villa! UTV.

1.) 12 Apr 2018 13:10:15
Hi Nick,
I have just seen the Neves goal, they are both great goals.
I think I would have to edge it to Neves, because he creates the opportunity himself.
Although the ball comes out to him, its on his left side, he tees the ball up for his favoured foot, then bingo.
Even so, 9 times out of ten this type of goal does not happen.
Jacks goal was great, but it did fall just right for him.

2.) 12 Apr 2018 13:22:30
Jacks goal was more skilful, Neves had more time to set it up.

3.) 13 Apr 2018 08:07:32
Score sheets don't paint pictures, they both go down as 1 goal.
Neves was an immense strike and not his first this season.
Jack used balance and timing, and a bit of luck, but gets the vote as he wears the claret and blue.



13 Jan 2018 19:40:09
Massive win today, superb composed performance. Snodgrass each week now is such an influence on the game. The back four looked like they did at PNE. Ok forest didn't do much but when had a couple of spell we were resilient! Must win game with Rams winning, good to see the Viking do well with Whelan taken off. 18 games to go and looking good the hunt for 2nd! UTV.

1.) 13 Jan 2018 20:55:09
19 games to go mate.

Would be ok because if helps the club to get out of this mess. It will always be Vila Park to everyone in the same way those other Victorian builds will be Anfield, Old Trafford etc!

Spent serious money and time on RMc so why not see if he can offer some cover up front if nothing is happening in this transfer window? If anything if he put in a couple of good shows it could help with sell on because his price currently can't get much lower if he bombs again! UTV.

Oh I feel so depressed, how awful things are! Our last home game we could only put 5 past lowly Bristol City who were second in the division! To make life worse we are 5 points off automatic promotion. The nail in the coffin is we are going to have to have 10 changes to the team on Saturday. I am so envious of the feel good factor at small Heath and Sandwell town! It could be worse I could be a dingle!
Let's get real here and can't wait to see how villa first team squad perform at the city ground tomorrow, every manager will make some bad signings. The most successful manager of our time bought Djemba DJemba remember for ManUtd and probably a few others. UTV.

So we need a new manager with a winning track record I am hearing. Like we have attracted those over the years?! My favourite managers are as follows:

Ron Saunders - can’t remember him winning loads pre villa?
Graham Taylor - Did well with Watford nut can’t recalll massive wins, promotions aside
Big Ron - perhaps class at WBA and odd cup May tick a box?
Brian Little - not great before villa other than getting LCFC up?
Martin O’Neil - as a manager did he win loads pre villa?

Give Dean Smith time to prove his current doubters wrong. We won’t get a Klondike or Moutinho or Pepp! Let’s get real and see what we can do August 2019 onwards UTV.

If look at SUFC fixtures they are playing a good few of our close playoffs contenders and Scotty could do us a big favour?!

Oh dear, today was embarrassing to say the least! Still not sure how new GK didn’t gather ball for the first?! We were so pedestrian and lacked pressing that I thought SB was manager again! Why did McGinn play when he has tired against Stoke and Leeds?! Thought again Hutton’s play at times was poor and as for Hogan at last I am resided to him never regaining his Brentford form in claret and blue!
O’Hare is miles off still from first team credentials but I was pleased with Lansbury who looked hungry and spread the ball well! We made 6 changes and can focus on the league. If lose Tammy then JK has to shine again. Remain hopeful for the playoffs VTID.

Leeds, best I’ve seen down VP all season. Saying that it was groundhog day with Elmo allowing their man on the inside of area, just like Stoke game. Really make shift defenders which needs some major January work! Need a tough partner for Chester and full back cover!
Really fearful of not making Playoffs with SB so not too down hearted! Long way to go and plenty of lesser sides than Leeds UTV.

My son thinks Hutton has a bubble around him that doesn’t allow for any criticism. He has earned this protection because he gives 100% could have left this season for bucks elsewhere. How he was bombed out of villa park and made his way back as a modern day legend is a credit to the man! Will back him, love the guy “Alan Hutton, Alan Hutton”.
