Davedean I have to agree with you. I'll hold my hands up and admit I'm more an armchair supporter these days, just can't afford it. I try to stream most matches ( I'm learning Arabic ๐Ÿ˜) and I still get ratty if we lose but always try to remain upbeat after I've calmed down.

I've followed the Villa since I was 11 after being taken to my first match and just because I'm not ITK what biscuits Doris the tea lady serves on a match day. my opinion is as valid as everyone else's and should be treated so even if that opinion may be misinformed.

That's the reason I come onto these sites to share opinions with other supporters and enter into healthy debate and maybe be shown another side to the argument or whatever is being discussed at the time.

Every day should be an education and if you don't learn at least 1 new thing a day then stop being negative because if things are that bad then you may as well put your head in an oven. Positivity breeds positivity and irrespective of how well we play or don't you'll still find the world keeps turning.

If I may be allowed to pose a question? To all you posters out there who have left this site, if you still check in to see what's happening, could I impose on you to perhaps post 1 more time to give your reasons for leaving? This would be greatly appreciated and see if there's a recurring theme. Thank you.

Yes Moose, its a good site, I have been on here for 10 years, and enjoyed it very much.
But I don`t like Editors, talking to me or other posters as if we are idiots, telling me I don`t know what I am talking about.
That triggers a response, and that response does not get posted, so effectively you get blanked out.
It was mentioned I posted nothing of worth, and that I might be abusive.

2.) 14 May 2020 22:53:25
My time on this site has been relatively short compared to the years some people have been posting and I have to say I have, at times, really enjoyed the exchanges Iโ€™ve had with people Iโ€™ve never even met. I now consider some of those people friends.

Much has been mentioned about the negativity element which exists on the Villa site, and whilst I do at times find that irritating, Iโ€™ve always said, everybody has a right to express their point of view, as long as it doesnโ€™t involve racism and itโ€™s not abusive.

I wouldnโ€™t go as far to say Iโ€™ve welcomed the โ€œdoom and gloomโ€ factor but Iโ€™ve been able to deal with that.
The thing I do find difficult to stomach though is being talked down to, and I detest it even more when I see other people on the receiving end of it, especially when itโ€™s people I like and respect.

There is no need to mention any individual, all posters on this site will know who I am referring to, as will the individual himself.
Could it be then, that people have left this site for this very reason, it wouldnโ€™t surprise me as nobody enjoys being belittled.

Will posts such as this one make any difference to the attitude, policy, call it as you will, I very much doubt that.
Ultimately though, this will probably mean numbers will dwindle to the point where sadly the site barely exists.

3.) 15 May 2020 06:36:51
Left for a short time due to the same negativity being thrown around daily from that poster with multiple accounts (ironically all left at the same time) .
Came back and then had the same issue as Dave. Talked down to and then posts which I felt were valid debates found their way into the bin.
I've also found posts paraphrased to the point that they are not remotely linked to what I was saying. This is worse than deleting and stopped me even opening this site since "my last post".
At most I may browse once a week but no desire to contribute again.

4.) 15 May 2020 10:46:12
I hope no one's referring to I'm just not bothering because I have more important things going on in my life than footy, hope everyones well and safe.

{Ed033's Note - Maybe this site could limit who the Eds are?

5.) 15 May 2020 19:41:41
Get rid of 002 and you will get people back, 001 and 033 good guys.

{Ed033's Note - ok thanks

6.) 15 May 2020 21:15:59
You been in touch with Villadave scotcaffu? If not drop him an email.

7.) 15 May 2020 21:23:45
Do it Scotty mate ๐Ÿ‘.



10 May 2020 13:06:25
Hey mainbob did you have chance to contact Villadave via email?


1.) 10 May 2020 13:55:53
Not got his email address yet.

2.) 10 May 2020 13:59:58
It was posted a few days back mate you might have to scroll back through to find it ๐Ÿ‘.

3.) 10 May 2020 14:26:57
Moose sent him a email now.

4.) 10 May 2020 14:42:53
Nice 1 mate he's got the relevant contract details ๐Ÿ‘.



10 May 2020 08:13:50
Just a few observations to kick things off this morning
1. Noel Whelan is spouting off again

2. Some clubs will have to fly players back from abroad, will they be quarantined for 14 days?

3. After his loss yesterday will there be a chorus of "Davis out"?

4. The name of the Bundesliga 2 coach who's team have confirmed cases of the virus within the squad is Ralf Minge, funny or unfortunate?

Discuss ๐Ÿ‘.


1.) 10 May 2020 12:26:51
I heard Ralfโ€™s wifeโ€™s a Redhead and her name is Ruby ๐Ÿ˜‚.

2.) 10 May 2020 12:22:26
Whelan is a dickhead as usual where villa are concerned.
As for the name of the coach both funny and very unfortunate.
But there are many people with unfortunate names to carry on through life.
My mate at school many many years ago had a surname of gotobed! .
He was always sleeping in the class?
Wonder why.?
Also heard today 1 brighton player tested positive with virus.
Come the right time with meeting tomorrow talking about the premiership starting time!

3.) 10 May 2020 13:41:23
Keinan was unlucky to lose, still as long as he didnโ€™t get injured, lol.

4.) 10 May 2020 13:52:13
He's out for 3 weeks with a thumb injury ๐Ÿ‘.

5.) 10 May 2020 14:20:31
As for Whelan, every time he spouts off, everybody realizes that heโ€™s an even bigger dickhead than they thought he was ๐Ÿ˜.



09 May 2020 08:50:44
Despite everyone's misgivings football is desperate and destined to return at some stage. A lot of eyes will be turned to the Bundesliga and how they proceed but we cannot take that as being a blueprint for our return as conditions differ country to country and what works for 1 won't necessarily work for another.
However I think for the " integrity " of the game to be maintained it should return in exactly the same format as before the lockdown the possible and sensible exception being the ability to use 5 subs at specific times throughout the match.
This means promotion and relegation and if that means we go down at least its done fairly. Talks of bullying clubs into accepting proposals or face consequences and scrapping relegation etc will just make it a sterile product and just fan the flames of " its just about the money ".
Neutral grounds should be a no go also as home and away is part of the league rules. It may not even make a difference with no fans allowed anyway but even taking into consideration people travelling to the stadiums surely the surroundings of any grounds could be cordoned off and patrolled, if that's acceptable to the police required to handle such things.
Furthermore if game times were staggered and were made available on free to air channels ie BBC, ITV , although not the same as attending may encourage people to stay at home and watch.
Keep the playing field equal for everyone not dictated by the big hitters.
We may be lifted by the return of football, some may not give a stuff, but if it is to return let's keep it as close to normal as possible and only then will the "integrity " of the game be maintained, whatever that is anymore.
Stay safe everyone and UTV.


1.) 09 May 2020 10:53:48
Everything in your post I agree with.
We must finish the season somehow.
The neutral ground issue is a joke in my opinion.
Wonder if any of the top 6 were in bottom 6 would they would still vote for playing on neutral ground? .
But at this moment with still 500 plus a day still losing lives how can you bring football back .
But the fa and premiership are only interested in money and they will do everything in there power to get players playing!

2.) 09 May 2020 11:04:44
I sense a bit of a change in stance Moose but I must admit if games were to resume, I would be as glued to the box as anybody else, I must admit Iโ€™ve missed it.
However, I totally agree with Mainbob in that football shouldnโ€™t return until itโ€™s as near to 100% safe as possible.
I agree with both of you about the neutral grounds issue, but frankly why anybody would want to stand outside a stadium while itโ€™s being played, when you could be watching the game live on the box, is beyond me.

3.) 09 May 2020 11:13:30
Yes mark I've had a long hard look at myself in the mirror ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ just re examined the data and bowed to the eventuality that the governing bodies won't be happy until it returns and just pointing out what I consider fair for all when it does . Whether it is physically safe or not is a completely different matter and my thoughts towards that haven't changed mate . ps has Dave passed on my email address?

4.) 09 May 2020 11:17:18
Mark and moose there are going to be some very strange ideas still to come from the fa and premiership tosses.
I miss the game terribly but not at the expense of so many people still dying at a large rate.
Until that death rate drop massively we should not see the game unfortunately. ,
But they are determined to bring it back even though the players and all the people in the stadium which I'm told could be 200+ people in every game involved.
Total madness in my opinion.

5.) 09 May 2020 11:56:24
The sticking point will be the social distancing thing, I think Bob. This will most probably apply for some time after the lockdown is relaxed. The thing is how can you say to the population you should keep a 2 mรจtre gap, when working/ socializing and allow football matches to take place.
Perhaps players will have to wear masks to get around this.
No Moose, no e-mail address yet mate.

6.) 09 May 2020 12:29:49
Mark perhaps a head visor to the floor is next on the agenda
To protect the whole body๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜.

7.) 09 May 2020 12:47:16
How about playing in spaces suits? Or diving suits? Mind you most of our players look like they've been playing in lead lined boots all season ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ but seriously safety is paramount and the same rules should apply to all not bent to suit individuals.

8.) 09 May 2020 13:15:21
Whatever happens with this season let's all hope it's a sensible decision from the powers at be,
If villa go down which I do think we will it will be of our own making.
If your team concedes 2 goals every game you will find it very hard to survive unless you outscore the other team.
In this case we are also struggling to do.
When you consider we have one of the best c/ backs in premiership history yet he is making no difference to our silly defending all season.
I said last night I predicted we would go down on goal difference and nothing has changed my mind on that.
My god just realised that is the first comment I have made on our playing this season for over 3 months! .

9.) 09 May 2020 13:16:54
How about Bernard, centre back, Maive middle of the park
( chance would be a fine thing), and Dolores up top,
(yes please๐Ÿ˜), no risk of spreading the virus and we would be invincible, ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.

10.) 09 May 2020 13:40:54
Backbone is sadly missing from this team.
The only game I thought we defended better was the 1-1away to Leicester in caraboo cup.
If we defended like that we would not be where we are now.
Shambolic is a word I would class our defending. all season.

11.) 09 May 2020 14:25:18
I think Dolores up top is quite tasty Mark ๐Ÿ˜‰mind you not bad at the back either ๐Ÿ˜ and yes mainbob our defending has been abysmal and chopping and changing formations hasn't helped but its simple, your best defenders mark the best attackers not having a flaky winger marking a 6ft 3 centre half it's not rocket science so hopefully during the enforced break we've had time to reset the tactics, mind you a midfield that can actually track a players runs and not just shrug their shoulders would help too.

12.) 09 May 2020 14:33:37
Ps Mark, Dave has put my email address on for you now and mainbob if you want to get in touch with Dave and exchange email addresses feel free to do so mate ๐Ÿ‘.

Read the article but think the premier league will just operate in their own bubble and stuff the rest. The gravy train must keep a rolling ๐Ÿ‘Ž.

Hey walkies why don't you join in with some of the slightly more fun stuff on the banter site instead of just going on about how crap the Villa are? We get you're not happy but another squad rebuild would just leave us back at square 1 and take even more time to gel (again) that's if we're lucky enough to stay up. Who knows you may enjoy the banter side of things and be cheered up a bit ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜.

That's going to bugger up a lot of travel plans mate when they decide it's safe enough to do so and I presume the same will apply to any returning foreign footballers if it doesn't its another example of 1 rule for 1 and not the other.
