Some of the posts on here? . Its like listening to kids Sunday league football.
We've played 2 games.
We lost to the European finalists and top 3 team in Spurs, and to Bournemouth due to 2 silly mistake (Heatons was uncharacteristic) and Luiz's.
Give it time, this team WILL gell, there is quality and competition in every position.
Taylor may not be the best left back at the club, but I can't see he's done too much wrong in the last 2 games, it's upto Targett to prove he deserves the shirt. Elmo the same.
Wesley will come good. He's adapting to the league and needs support and more service.
The time to worry would be December if we are still around this position. Even then, the transfer window will be opening and luckily we have owners who can flex their financial muscles.
Trust in Deano and his staff and roar on the team.

Good post Savo .

Nice to see a normal person as opposed to those posing from a mental hospital are on line 🤪👍.

23 Aug 2019 18:26:12
Maybe not this team but possibly a future team when Deano has gone and another few hundred million has been spent. UTW.

23 Aug 2019 01:00:05
All this talk about Benteke, he scored once, in his first 6 games at Villa . So give Wes a chance, get off his back . All the Crap in the press and by Villa supporters (HaHa ) on social media, can't be helping in any way .
Some of you posters on here, are more detrimental to my blood pressure, than anything the team can do .
Onwards&Upwards Villaforever.

Anybody who knows about football knows zaha doesn't cross he cuts in a shoots same goes for townsend bentekes class.

23 Aug 2019 11:26:17
Walkies once again, you seem to have missed the point . I wasn't saying Benteke was rubbish, I was saying same as Wes he also needed time, to settle in .

23 Aug 2019 11:27:08
Also who mentioned Zaha?

23 Aug 2019 12:26:38
I was just pointing out because people keep slating bentekes goal record that he don't get any service. Wesley is a differnt player completley. Hopefully he scores tonight mate!

22 Aug 2019 22:07:26
Elmo has signed a new deal, 2 years I think.

{Ed001's Note - yes 2.}

Its a 1 year contract extention.

22 Aug 2019 18:20:41
I have just been reading on twitter some of the less than constructive views regarding Wesley, surely two games is at least ten games short of being able to form a fair appraisal. Some of the older fans and certainly the Dave's will remember two players of the past that had very slow starts to their Villa careers, who ultimately turned out to be Villa Favourites, Savo an Angel. Give Wes time to acclimatise to the premier league and how Deano wants him to play and I'm sure he will also turn out to be a fans favourite.
I just hope tomorrow kick starts our season in front of a full house at VP or there will be more players unfairly under the spotlight.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Aug 2019 19:29:41
I certainly do remember scotty.
Another that springs to mind although not a villa player was Didier Drogba, took ages to settle.

22 Aug 2019 20:29:41
The problem with those comparisons is that they were both brought in while we already had a first choice so they had time to settle, we were also a a top team for the most part. Wesley is under huge pressure from day one. First choice, big money, comparisons to Benteke and the task of keeping us up after a few years in the wilderness.
I think he'll come good, just a very different situation. Fingers crossed he's a Tekkers and not a Helenius.

22 Aug 2019 21:10:42
While I can agree with you in part, I have to say along with the press, we are the people putting him under pressure with our impatience and unrealistic expectations.
I do think he needs to toughen up a bit, stay on his feet, and use his physique a bit more.
I say leave him alone, he will improve.

22 Aug 2019 21:11:54
Does anybody else think that an. iam talking about even me here because we have been relegated b4 that we are now really scared its gona happen again so we are judging qwick. If we was a prem club an we hadnt gone down would we be going on about relegation and slating players after 2 games? We are all very fearful of relegation and we are jumpin the gun a bit iam guilty aswel. You look at norwich didn't buy anybody everybody said there gone but they have a better chance of staying up than us and I tell you why because they are playing with no pressure at all the fans are like if we go down then oh wel if we stay up great. With villa its like we must stay up we must perform well and i know people don't like him but micah richards said when we went down before the players were scared to play at villa park that simply can't happen. People in the holte by me say yea but we are Aston Villa we should be beating Bournmouth we should been going for better players its reality time we are a poor prem side who went up through the back door we havnt got paul merson or dion dublin or paul mcgrath yes those players were great but we are simply not that Aston Villa anymore our foccus is staying up every season. Wesley is not Benteke Wesley is Wesley and will try his heart out only time will tell if these players are good enough but let's make Villa Park more relaxed to play at if we go down then so what its not the be and end all we can't win the prem anyway as man city have it like 4eva until they want to stop out spending so let's just enjoy it.

22 Aug 2019 21:58:46
Like I have said its us and the press who are at fault.
Because we are Aston Villa means jack rubbish.
Never take anything for granted, we are 11 men called Aston Villa.
I refuse to talk about us going down, I have no doubt at all that we will have a good season, obviously with some ups and downs.
We will overcome and grow, give it time.

23 Aug 2019 03:11:43
We need to start picking picking points up soon but were ok at the moment not expecting anything 2moz il take a point thou.

Its fair to say it not been a great start but I belive us as fans can help Aston Villa turn it around we all need to be pulling in the right direction and that's showing up and singing our hearts out 4 our club. Yes Villa4ever I get your points aswel as I get everybody elses we are all aloud our view its a forum. My view is I know its not great but like the wifes cooking Iam going to eat it an say its great lol. I wanted better players but I know at the min in football Villa aren't the place to be everton west ham leicester even brighton are more attractive they have been in the prem longer than us recently. If we can stay up then we will get better players! I belive dean smith needs to stop picking his fav players and pick players that he brought 17million on a lbk is a lot of dow we are not at that stage where we can say ok your on the bench if you pay such a big fee 4 a lbk that must mean the manager likes you? Iam confused what his thinking is at the min but I love Dean Smith and people need to remember without him we wouldn't be in the prem so if he does get things wrong its his mistakes to make we wouldn't be anywhere without him!

My tactics for Aston Villa against Everton would be a 4-5-1 formation:
Heaton (GK), Guilbert (DR), Engels (DC), Mings (DC), Targett (DL), Grealish (AMR), McGinn (MCR), Nakamba (DMC), Hourihane (MCL), El Ghazi (AML), Wesley (FW) .

I would choose from these substitute players: Kalinić, Elmohamady, Chester, Hause, Trézéguet, Jota and Kodjia.

Either way, my prediction is: 2-0 to Aston Villa!

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Aug 2019 16:17:20
I can`t see why you would leave Trez out, I feel its only a matter of time before he hits the net.
Douglas Luiz not even on the bench?

21 Aug 2019 16:43:49
Where does Luiz fit in mate, should be the fist name down on the team sheet.

21 Aug 2019 17:37:09
Can’t see that one, no Luiz, if you had said Luiz and Marvellous then perhaps .
Onwards&Upwards Villaforever.

21 Aug 2019 21:40:15
I think that Luiz should rest for now, and that other players should get the chance. The formations should have been entirely different the first two matches. For me, it would've been better with an 4-4-2 attacking formation against Bournemouth and I would've prefered the 4-5-1 formation against Tottenham. I'm sure we would've been better off than we are now.

21 Aug 2019 22:38:11
Rest, he has only played a game and a bit 9 mins.

22 Aug 2019 13:40:24
4-2-3-1 for me


Done . 👍.

22 Aug 2019 14:57:36
Kenn looks good to me however having just lost our opening games and no points on the board I believe Deano will play safe (read in to that no attacking fullbacks) so Elmo and Taylor are almost certain to play. To be fair Elmo probably deserves to be in, Taylor should never have started the season in the team. I wouldn't be surprised to see Hourihane in the stating 11, ( would not be my choice I hasten to add) but I think it will be Heaton Elmo Engels Ming's Taylor Hourihane Jack McGinn Luiz Trez Wes.

22 Aug 2019 17:46:23
Villa_Kenn, spot on with that team, 100% our best starting 11 👍🏻


22 Aug 2019 20:41:31
Yeah maybe caffu, however I think if we go with Taylor and Elmo we will be hammered .

Everton set up 4-2-3-1 also . With a forward three of richalison, Bernard and sigurdson.

Taylor vs Richalison 😱

Elmo vs Bernard 🥺

Guilbert made something like the third highest talked in Europe last season .

Also I think we need Nakamba and Luiz to nulify the threat of Gomez and sigurdson.

I can also see Everton giving debuts to Kean from Juventus and Iwobi from Arsenal . That makes it an even tougher proposition.

We should be starting with the best 11 players on the pitch there is no better time than in the first 5 games as it gives them time to gel .

Only my opinion but shoot me for it 🤪.

22 Aug 2019 23:43:17
Kenn if you get chance watch Deanos press conference, he has gone on record as saying players not playing have to earn the earn the shirt and prove they are better than the players they expect to replace. This is code for Targett and Guilbert aren't good enough. The worrying thing for me is that a £15 mill left back can't displace a weak short arce. Marvelous is not the player he thought he was getting and Guilbert can't defend. So all the optimistic guys on here expecting changes are going to be disappointed tomorrow. Deano I am sure you know what you are doing and on this basis suggests you have not bought as wisely as we all first thought otherwise the teams most fans would select would be in tomorrow.

23 Aug 2019 07:42:34
Caffu I have indeed seen the press conference .

And yes every player has to earn the right to take the shirt! So I do agree with Deano in that sense

Quiet how you have came to the conclusion this means they are 💩players I don’t know 🤷‍♂️

he said they have to take the shirt and they are getting used to the speed of the game, the physicality and also how we as a team play .

Answer this . these are Dean Smiths signings, therefore I can’t see him spending money for no reason? Also this far Taylor and Elmo haven’t done too much wrong,

i just think Guilbert and Targett are better having seen both of them in preseason.

Guilbert can’t defend, but was in the top 5 for completed tackles in the whole of Europe . However Guilbert may not be getting a game due to the relationship on the pitch between Elmo and Trez who play in the same national team and know how each other plays .

Also where has he said Nakamba is not the player he thought he was getting! Jesus he hasn’t played a game, hasn’t had a pre season yet is being written off 😂

As for being optimistic . I’m a glass half full kind of guy . Pity the some of the other Villa fans on here aren’t! personally questioning a team with 13new players after 2 losses in the toughest league In the world is nothing short of a disgrace.

My side to play everton

Gk heaton
targett mings engles guilbert
Mids hourianne, luis, mgginn
Forwards, grealish, wesley, trez
. i put grealish up top because he offeres more of a threat than elghazzi or jota.

21 Aug 2019 12:59:07
Targett won't play, Deanos favourite will still play even though he brings "diddly squat to the party"

21 Aug 2019 01:24:38
I was looking at our nxt 6 games after everton, crystal palace, wham, arsensl, norwhich, burnly, brighton, if worst happens against everton, an take arsenal out the equasion we should well hope pick up sum points, that's when we should be judged after them 6 games because if we can get points of the bottom teams then we are in serious trouble.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Aug 2019 09:57:31
Nobodys knows about the future mate It might just click we are not playing bad I just would like mistakes cut out and players to step it up a bit more. All we have to do is win 1 game a month and we are safe! Then in January we must buy a striker!

21 Aug 2019 11:42:41
I think we need more than 1 win a month mate.

21 Aug 2019 15:03:23
4eva, again I can`t make head nor tail of your post.
You have named 6 teams who you are saying we should pick up points off.
Then you say take Arsenal out of the equasion, so it then becomes 5 teams?
You then go on to say, :- we should then be judged after those 6 games,
because if we can`t get points from the bottom sides we are in trouble.
Can I point out none of the teams you have mentioned are down the bottom.
You seem to revel in posting very negative idea`s of our demise, we have played
two games, and you are looking for stumbling blocks all the time.
I think its fair to say we will be judged May 17th next year, and not after the
fixtures you have picked "me old china"
I don't want to appear pedantic, but you have missed out the West Ham fixture.

21 Aug 2019 19:33:16
Dave wham are in there mate in fixtures mate iam not negative dave just worried don't see where the goals are going to come from, wesley doesn't look like he could finish his breakfeast let alone score mate . all my mates who support villa are worried, we hardly signed players with prem experience, i still think we will just stay up but we should got sturridge on a free would of been good signing, i'm not negative just think for 120 mil spent we should of signed better players, heaton, mings, engles, trez good signings luis maybe the rest average.

21 Aug 2019 20:17:15
Sorry 4eva about west ham.
But the rest is not fair on the management and club.
