A big blow watford winning tonight but i still believe there is hope i think if we can beat palace and everton we could still have a winner take all against west ham on the last day our goal now has to be to take it to the last day.

Hope he gets it then if changes are made then it be that bit cheaper 4us as a club. Why did they exstend drinkwaters loan people have to pay the price for these mistakes iam afraid i like smith but time to change now.

If we stay up why don't we sign Rodriguez from madrid and kaboulay from Napoli there is ambition sell grealish for 80m and get 2 players there.

Agree1 Disagree0

06 Jul 2020 18:15:51
Due to the virus, no club will be paying that sort of money for Grealish.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jul 2020 22:28:51
On his form lately we will struggle to get 50p we based our whole team on a dweller his dives to the ground any chance he gets because he hasn't got the pace to beat a man. No where near as good as merson was in his role. What ever you get take the money and run. If you based your whole game plan around 1 man your onto a loser unless his class and his bang avarge for me. Bye bye jack don't let the door hit you. That brentford winger is much better than him.

I see there’s no change in Walkies posts, seems more like a nose or a dingle .

Even souness feels the same because every games on tv we people know how poor he is now.

Walk you hit the nail on the head average jack for me to.

07 Jul 2020 17:47:35
Agreeing with anything Souness says is like believing the guy down the pub who says he punched an alien once, the man's a joke.

“Men lie, women lie, numbers don’t”

Chances created this season:
1. Kevin De Bruyne
2. Jack Grealish

Nothing like a tough period to bring our the worst in Villa fans, been the same for years. Good job it’s behind closed doors or the bedsheets would be our, embarrassing us to the nation. Grealish will leave it at the end of the season, go on to bigger and better things, and the same people slating him now, will talk about how they always saw his talent and how good he was for us. Spineless.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jul 2020 22:48:36
I think if Smith gets sacked ill put a name out there that not many have mentioned that i would give my right arm for the legend that is Claudio Ranieri always been a fan of his i know he is 68 but this would show the intent we need and he would attract good players to our team. Thoughts?

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jul 2020 23:09:36
no rather have Hoddle.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jul 2020 00:19:02
I agree with you on Ranieri, but only if we go down.

I don't think we'd attract the players we'd need for the fabled instant promotion, and would need a season at least to structure without using the loan market, which was out downfall after being promoted (priced out the market as it was a must purchase) .

If we stay up and money isn't a stumbling block then I'd personally like to see the likes of Valverde, Kovac, Blanc, Allgeri,

Kovac would be my main choice, someone who has, played at the highest levels for both club and country - links to a lot of academies to help build.

After Kovac it would have to be Valverde with his attacking style of football (he was disappointed with Barcelona letting Louie Barry go aswell)

Think it would be groundhog Day if we went for the likes of Dyche, Big Sam etc.
These names to me say mid-table / relegation battles. Is that really the direction for the club?

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jul 2020 08:07:58
Ads2003, if we got a big name manager and a massive transfer budget, would we give the new man the time required to clear out all the unwanted players currently at the club whilst restructuring the youth system? I'd like to think we would but I very much doubt it.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jul 2020 09:58:40
Personally I would stick with Smith you do not become a bad manager overnight he has had a tough baptism in the premiership and I think he will have learned from the experience. However if they do get rid of him then I think whoever comes in needs to be given a transfer budget and he should be allowed to identify his targets and the club then need to get them (where possible) and not be in a situation where the club foist players on the manager which seems to have been the scenario with Smith unless that changes then no big name manager worth there salt would touch us and rightly so in my opinion.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jul 2020 18:28:02
One team took their chances, the other didn't. Both goals Taylor completely lost Mane for the first, and then Salah for the second, criminal defending, lost concentration for a split second on both occasions and was punished, that's what happens at the top level.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jul 2020 18:38:43
Maybe he could have done better but expecting him to do everything is harsh. Taylor stopped several chances before that and both of those goals should have been stopped much earlier.
Reina should never have tried that lofted throw to Grealish leading to the free kick, there was no counter advantage to be gained.
Smith's major issue for me is his subs. It was difficult to drag someone off with how we performed for 60 minutes but as soon as they brought on the ringers we needed to do something.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jul 2020 18:52:25
The commitment and fight was better than it usually is, and they created a reasonable of chances. Against arguably the best team in Europe, I thought they competed well.
We’re only one point off 17th place, so there’s still hope.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jul 2020 19:05:38
That was a much better performance all round, but.
If you could not see that result coming, you are missing the big picture.
You could see the pattern of play taking that same familiar shape,
punt up, back it came.
To be honest, and no punches pulled, we don`t deserve to stay up, how many times do we want other results to go our way.
We have had chance, after chance, after chance, not good enough.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jul 2020 19:16:58
You can't play open expansive football against Liverpool, it's suicide.
We did everything but finish our chances in the first half, the support up front was exemplary. Even the start of the second half we overloaded their defence but we're wasteful.
Our problem was that we did not replace tired players sooner. Grealish was playing half injured and still had a chance.
If we could have thrown the likes of Lansbury, Hourihane, Elmo and Samatta on around 65-70 minutes we could have had a chance.

Agree1 Disagree0

05 Jul 2020 19:19:46
Weak team, weak substitutes, Liverpool tired us out then put quality on and we got Jota, says it all. We got what we deserved just as we have all season. How any here can see any positives is beyond me. Dave is right we do not deserve to stay up.

Agree1 Disagree0

05 Jul 2020 19:37:54
Lots of positives to take, can’t throw the towel in when we’re one point adrift with 5 games to play, that would be cowardly.

When was the last time Liverpool lost at home? We were always going to be on the back foot, the tactics were spot on, we had 3 or 4 brilliant breaks where we out numbered them, we just didn’t take them, the better team won on the day, simple as that.

Talks of “we don’t deserve to stay up” is just self loathing, whoever finishes outside the bottom three deserves to stay up, and whilst we still have a chance to do that, support the team. Last time we were relegated Lescott said it was a weight of their shoulders, and he was crucified, but it seems like some have adopted that attitude already.

We were much better today we just were up against the best in the world. We have been more solid since the lock down, Played 4 games in which we have played 2 top 4 teams, one being the best in the world, And then another team fighting for European places. Let’s just not have the meltdown, for once.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jul 2020 19:57:54
It’s always the same no improvement we are ok until the 70 mins+ Tottenham both Home and away arsenal the same we have had more than enough chances against these teams. I don’t want to stay up by the skin of my teeth as we did that for seasons before we went down. Go down rebuild the whole club. Some fresh English players would be a good start.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jul 2020 20:01:03
We were much better Chris and I find it hard to believe that anybody thought we would get anything from this game, given the quality of their players compared to ours. Look at the table guys, how many points have Liverpool dropped this season.
Yet for 70 minutes Liverpool didn’t look like scoring, and we probably had the better chances to take the lead.
How often this season has our defense looked vulnerable from the off this season? Yet today we did actually look reasonably comfortable against the best there is.
So I think there were positives to take from this game and if they continue to play like that we could just survive, why not? Watford and Bournemouth don’t look any better than us.
Other positives were the performances of Luiz and McGinn, who played his best game since his return and Mings was an absolute rock at the back.
So come on guys, get behind your team. UTV.

Agree1 Disagree0

05 Jul 2020 20:03:08
Chris, I will support my team through thick and thin mate, and self loathing is a dislike of oneself, so that`s off the mark a bit mate.
With all the chances of putting points between us, and failing to take them is not good enough, and that is my reason for saying we don`t deserve to stay up.
I like to say things as I honestly see them, that does not make you a bad supporter, I tell the truth, I was brought up that way.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jul 2020 20:35:35
Never would even hint your a bad supporter Dave, you should know that. It’s not the truth though, it’s your opinion, and fair play for sticking to it.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jul 2020 20:58:13
Sorry chris, not being pedantic mate, but we have failed to take the chance to close the gap, when other teams have lost.
That`s the truth is it not?
That`s what I am saying, its not an opinion, it happened.

Agree1 Disagree0

05 Jul 2020 21:08:40
Chris, Truth, Opinion, Facts, look at the table, what else is there to judge. I go for facts look at the league table.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jul 2020 21:31:56
Still 5 games to go though Scotty, I’ll take 17th at the end mate, wouldn’t you?
Despite the defeat, which let’s face it was expected, I saw a glimmer of hope today, fighting spirit and togetherness, qualities we’ve been lacking for most of the season.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jul 2020 21:52:42
Hi Mark, I like your optimism mate, and 17th would be brilliant.
Today granted was a far better overall performance, and yet we failed to score again, we have to be realistic Mark, try this.
Out of our remaining 5 fixtures who do you really see us beating, don`t` let your heart rule your judgement.
Nobody has answered this question yet.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jul 2020 22:16:07
Palace, Everton and Arsenal don’t really have a lot to play for and I think West Ham will be safe by the time we get to play them.
If we show the same level of fight and togetherness those games are winnable.
Yes, they need to start taking their chances but I think the goals will come. I also think Deano should give Louie Barry a chance if Davis and Samatta can’t find the back of the net maybe he could, well worth a try I think. He’s scored goals at every level he’s played at who’s to say he can’t do it at this level. Deano won’t know for sure until he gives him a chance.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jul 2020 22:30:43
Your right Dave, we keep missing the chances to close the distance, that wasn’t what I was disputing. “We don’t deserve to stay up” is an opinion though, not a fact, that can’t be determined at this point in the season when we are 1 point a drift from equally hopeless teams with 5 games to play. Do I think we’ll stay up? No, to be honest, do I think we still have a chance, yes, it isn’t over till the fat lady sings, stranger things have happened.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jul 2020 22:31:37
I see your thinking Mark, the problem with that is teams don`t let you win just because they have nothing to play for.
So you honestly think we are going to win 4 games out of the five.
Ok hope you are right, now is that your head or heart Mark.
We have been banging on about Barry for a few weeks now, its not going to happen until all is lost mate.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jul 2020 22:44:51
No Dave, they won’t just let us win, but you would think teams in those mid-table positions would have one eye on finishing the season intact and therefore starting next season fully fit. Why risk playing with maximum intensity for nothing.
By contrast we have everything to play for and today the players showed what I was hoping to see before now, FIGHT and it may, or it may not make all the difference, let’s hope it’s the former.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jul 2020 22:53:35
Come on guys get real, ten consecutive games without a win, are you really expecting a couple of wins out of the remaining five games. Let's just look at facts.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jul 2020 23:06:31
Ok Mark, fingers crossed mate, a point would of been nice today.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jul 2020 14:11:36
Who's ready for a thrashing no fight and no passion, oh and maybe a new hair cut from our captain.

Agree1 Disagree0

05 Jul 2020 15:29:47
Nothing like good old fashioned support! That’s the spirit.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jul 2020 15:34:18
Nice to see nylan not starting thank god, blokes a donkey.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jul 2020 17:19:38
I’ve supported in other ways like giving my hard earned cash and getting nothing back, thankyou very much!

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jul 2020 17:21:03
Support your team simple as I personally cannot stand anybody who slabs of their suposed team they say they support.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jul 2020 17:32:00
Villadaz do I not support the team I am allowed to be critical! I wish I didn’t have to be but I do and you are telling me it’s all smiles and laugh from you about the villa daz?

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jul 2020 17:47:03
You do nothing but critize I bet if you won a million pounds you'd moan that it wasnt 2 million.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jul 2020 18:02:06
Nobody expects us to beat Liverpool but fans of Brighton, Norwich, Sheffield United go into these games cheering for their team to give it their best shot. You know, real fans.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jul 2020 18:26:12
You slagged them before a ball was kicked, doesn’t matter how much you pay to watch them, that’s not support.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jul 2020 13:51:12
Current bottom four have played sixteen games since the restart and have not won a single game between them, its no wonder the teams are where they are it's fully deserved. One of the four is going to escape, with Norwich almost certain for the drop and goal difference probably will come in to play yesterday's results have helped us provided we don't get a bashing today our goal diffence now is not too bad compared to Watford and Bournemouth. So it is still in our own hands to survive, we have to accept that we are not going to get anything today but a good performance could boost confidence for the remaining games. So Deano and the boys show some fight and nouse and restore a bit of pride, to what has been a disappointing season and not much improvement after the restart.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jul 2020 17:26:05
Decent enough first half and if Davis gambled on one we could be ahead. Not sure why he keeps dropping off in the box. Let the midfielder occupy the penalty spot area.
