I am very confident Deano has seen our defensive frailties and will address them as soon as he is able to, our defence is very poor at the moment, but I must say Nyland was very poor tonight.
I admit I have defended him over the last few weeks and felt he needed time to settle, tonight was dreadful and I was shocked at his decision making and positioning.

It was a great game to watch and for the neutrals, but not good for the nerves of us Villa fans, especially my age.
I wonder if Deano will give Bunn a couple of games just to steady the ship a bit and to take a bit of pressure of Nyland.
Going forward we are looking very good, and our overall play is much better.
Another lesson tonight, if you are direct and speculate you will eventually get rewards, forests forth goal is testimony to that.

So if Martinez was to come in, would that mean Henry would be his number 2.
The plot thickens.


1.) 08 Oct 2018 20:15:36
Id have Martinez good manager and he knows the championship.

2.) 09 Oct 2018 17:49:02
Villa4ever make your mind up you wanted Brendon Rodgers yesterday now it’s Martinez and before that it was Henry who will you want tomorrow coco the clown.
I’m just glad you’re not in the decision making as your always posting absolute nonsense all the time and supporters who may post on here aren’t going to because it’s a circus.
You are to this forum what Diane Abbot is to economics and mathematics lol.



07 Oct 2018 16:48:22
It seems this rumour about Henry and Terry is gaining momentum, and is not going away.
This could be very exiting if true.
I know it would not guarantee success, but we would have arguably the best striker and defender we have seen in this country for the last 20years.
If this happens I hope we can keep the likes of Delaney and McDonald at the club, I say this because they are Villa through and through, and there is very little wrong with our reserve and youth set up.
I am sure a roll for Stan Petrov could be found on the coaching side of things, that would give us a set up that has it all.
I think it would be nice to show Stan a bit of faith, after all he was a gladiator for us in midfield.


1.) 07 Oct 2018 17:03:03
I’d love that Dave. I hope they make an announcement soon, so who ever it is has this break to try and add some positivity to the club.

2.) 07 Oct 2018 17:26:38
Agree surely there's a coaching role Stan could do, I hope these rumours are true about jt n henry, the players would listen to those 2 there winners, Brendan Rodgers would be good, either i'm a happy bunny 😁😁.



03 Oct 2018 16:24:31
I will direct this at you Mainbob, simply because you are the last to post.
I have to say, I am disgusted with the attitude of some on here, you are all wallowing in the incident with Bruce last night, unbelievable and shameful.
You all think you are so funny with the kind of remarks you are making, all I can say is how would you feel if it was your Mother or Father coming under the same kind of abuse, Just think about it.
I want a change in management as much as anyone, but my god, I have more dignity than that.
The guy who threw the cabbage at Steve Bruce is a total person and an imbecile and should be banned for life if he is identified.
It`s all we and good venting your disapproval towards someone but to throw missiles of any description is moronic.
Please don't reply to me if you are backing this type of behaviour, instead go and spend some time growing up.
My patience on here is being severely tested, Villa fans it's a joke, have some bloody dignity and pride.
From a true Villa fan, not a hooligan.


1.) 03 Oct 2018 17:13:17
I don't think you should post on here if you don't want people to disagree with you.
Everyone is entitled to their opinion and my opinion is that someone throwing a cabbage at Steve Bruce is quite funny.
If my mother or father was in a high profile, highly paid position and someone threw a cabbage at them, I don't think it would upset me too much.

2.) 03 Oct 2018 17:30:55
If you read my post this morning I was disgusted with the fans last night and I did a big post on it,
I defended Bruce and was really sorry how he was treated,
Amazed you have picked out me to vent your anger.

3.) 03 Oct 2018 17:44:26
Prob that’s fine mate, if someone does throw a cabbage at you mom, I hope for your sake it doesn`t hit her square in the face, because it would hurt.
I don’t mind people replying cock, I will talk all day to people who are sensible with valid opinions.
In my opinion yours is not valid, its dangerous is it not?
I am sure you could find some Doc Martins about if you tried, I will keep my eyes open.

4.) 03 Oct 2018 17:56:19
Bob Yes that was this morning but you have followed suit with other comments,
And I did point out that I said your name because you posted last.
That was abuse last night, and you can dress it up all you like, its not on mate, end of.
Nothing personal, you know how I feel about abuse I have backed you up many times on here in the past.

5.) 04 Oct 2018 07:22:31
Dave what have I said that's got your goat,
Please enlighten me.

6.) 04 Oct 2018 07:34:06
I think if my Father was earning 2 Million a year, with 40 years experience, and managing one of the largest football clubs in the country he would have a thick enough skin to know this is football.

The cabbage was disgraceful but some of the comments on here are comical, I don't condone it by any stretch and hoped Villa fans would have more class but surely you have all seen much worse incidents at other clubs.

Villa fans amaze me, we have been shouting to get Bruce removed for months and now he is gone we focus and argue about the manner in which he was removed - Let's look forward, together.

7.) 04 Oct 2018 08:37:40

Hear hear let's all move on and support whoever is our next manager.

8.) 08 Oct 2018 15:22:26
i would applaud the choice of vegetable.

Confirmed, Grabbon signs.

Too Villadaz below 14:48.
When you say you two, you mean chris and I, right.
Daz, where have I ridiculed anybody, I am arguing my point against their point, what is wrong with that mate, surely they can respond themselves, they are adults are they not.
You go on to say that I am spouting off, spouting off about what, I am disagreeing with scott and defending our manager for goodness sake.
So you are saying it`s okay for us to trash the manager verbally and shout the odds about him not knowing what he is doing, and that we should get rid, are you for real.
How would you feel if you were the manager reading what people are saying about you after such a short time, you would probably tell them to stick the job, am I right.
I have called nobody on here an idiot, a fool, clueless, or any other derogatory names, and I am certainly not aiming any malice towards scotty, I happen to love the banter.
What I don't like is people jumping the gun and condemning someone without giving them the chance and time they deserve.


1.) 15 Feb 2019 18:25:30
VD, I like you enjoy the banter and would certainly not categorise you in the bigot camp. I certainly do not feel any malice thrown my way from you. I accept your "give the guy a chance position. No one wanted Smith to succeed more than me, however he has to take some responsibility, that's what management is all about in any walk of life. I object to some of his team selections and would have hoped that him and his experienced coaches could have plugged some of the "holes in the culinder" by now. So let's agree to disagree, rembering that i felt the same as you with Garde Dimatteo lambert bruce etc and "give them a chance and patience" has been knocked out of me. The aforementioned are all still wealthy men and we continue to suffer so let's show Deano are expections are not unreasonable.

2.) 15 Feb 2019 18:54:39
Thank you for that scotty, I am happy you feel that way.
As far as this debate is concerned I have to agree with you, we shall have to agree to disagree.
Thanks again mate.

3.) 15 Feb 2019 19:05:24
Dave the ridiculing was not aimed at you mate. I said to you before I like some of your posts and you do put facts with your posts which I love. But the fact of the matter is this same team that is losing or drawing battered Derby and Boro in fact played them off the park how can we go from that to how we are now. Playing 2 holding midfielders and a lone striker come on bud everyone can see this is not working and why? Because Smith has changed it no-one else. You know I didn't want Smith in the 1st place I feel he is to inexperienced managing Walsall and Brentford is not a good CV in my honest opinion being a Villa fan doesn't mean he will bring success back to us. let's put it this way if you was the CEO of Villa and you sacked Bruce you had all the candidates in front of you experienced managers who have been there done that and managed big name players and then you have a man who has managed Walsall and Brentford who no disrespect to those clubs have let's say lesser name players who would you pick? Because I know who I would. Dave banter I love more than the next bloke but Brentford have finished below us we can't suffer another 2 or 3 seasons in this league it could ruin us mate players come and go managers come and go owners come and go but we pay our hard earned money to watch us we need the PL sooner rather than later and in my opinion Smith is not the answer.

4.) 15 Feb 2019 19:40:04
Thanks for letting me know daz.



13 Feb 2019 18:37:43
A bit concerned about tonight`s game.
Our record is not good against Brentford, home or away.
We need to turn up tonight or we will get turned over.


1.) 13 Feb 2019 22:00:12



12 Feb 2019 14:30:40
What a horrible thought, noses can go 5 points clear of us with a win tonight.


1.) 12 Feb 2019 17:42:38
Says an awful lot about us!

2.) 12 Feb 2019 18:37:18
It says nothing about us scot.
More to the point it tells us that they are doing very well, credit where its due.
I would prefer it the other way round, but it is what it is.



09 Feb 2019 13:45:46
When referring to the man on his high horse, I take it you mean me?
What gives you the opinion I am on my high horse.


1.) 09 Feb 2019 14:16:10
Because you try to belittle everyone else's opinion Dave thinking your opinions are the only one that matters. The fact of the matter is we are no better off than last year fact. But don't take it to heart mate hope your not offended.

2.) 09 Feb 2019 14:41:50
I don`t belittle anyone on here mate, in fact I have campaigned on here many times against that sort of behavior.
What I have said is that I think people are too quick to knock someone, they want success over night, blimey Daz us Villa fans are known for it.
Give Deano some time, and try not to be so touchy.
You have an opinion, and I said I disagree with you what's your problem with that.

3.) 09 Feb 2019 15:08:04
So Dave answer me this are you happy with the results, Perfomances, And our position? because I'm not I understand your a Smith lover just like I was with Bruce but as I've stated we are worse off now and we was last year sentiments done mean nothing in football mate.

4.) 09 Feb 2019 15:49:14
To answer your question, no I am not happy with our results, I am a bit puzzled about our performances, and our position is not ideal, but we can still creep into the playoffs as it stands.
I am not a Smith lover as you put it, but I do think he has the potential to be a good manager given the chance, and I still think he can grow with us.
Also I am adamant the players are the problem, they cannot produce what they are trained for consistently, some of them are very poor at what they do, passing being one of them.
How can you blame Smith, for all those passes that went astray last night?
So in a nutshell I am watching and waiting with patience, judge the man on a team that he builds himself, and not a team that he is sticking plasters on.

5.) 09 Feb 2019 16:02:23
I love a good debate Dave tell me this then could you blame Bruce for that missed penalty or all the other stray passes under his tenure?

6.) 09 Feb 2019 16:22:40
No Daz, I have just said you cannot blame the manager for stray passes, that is bad judgement by the player.



01 Feb 2019 18:07:54
Just a quick one, what has happened to Mainbob.
Where are you mate?


1.) 01 Feb 2019 23:17:19
Good shout Dave, hope everything ok Bob .

2.) 02 Feb 2019 13:54:14
Perhaps he got transferred out of this forum during the window :)

Good post Dave.
Deano basically said what we have said about the players.
Good to hear, I hope he acts on it.
As scotty has said, the under 23s are waiting.
