Just looked at villa, s remaining games and cardiffs, an derbys aswell we have the easier fixtures on paper, these nxt 3 games are big for villa due to other rivals playing each other over nxt few weeks . if we can get 9 points an hope cardiff slip up we will be laughing . then after these 3 games we play wolves at home nice. last 3 games could decide who goes up we play cardiff an derby aswell both at home.

Why answer, bite and give him air time?!

Can anyone tell me what the point of the development squad is if we never play any one even in the middle of injuries.
It seems that we prefer to use other clubs youngsters at the expense of our own.
We seem to have learnt very little from when we have lost young players who have gone on to be first teamers at other clubs.

Agree1 Disagree1

Bruce won't play them mate its a joke we have about 5 or six that are ready for the 1st team.

Agree0 Disagree1

21 Feb 2018 14:17:13
I have nothing against Bruce as a manager but bringing through young players are not his strongest asset,
He seems to like other teams young players
Hence onomah!
He tends to stick with the tried and trusted methods,
Just wish he would at least put some of these kids on bench from time to time,

It’s so easy to get carried away and exaggerate when we’re in a tough patch, and especially when the tough patch is largely due to injuries, but if you genuinely think there’s 6 players from the youth set up ready for the first team you are a dreamer.
O’hare - ready for the first team
Hepburn Murphy - ready for first team
Doyle-Hayes - ready for the bench maybe at a push

Outside of that including any other kids is forcing it, yea they play well in the youth games every other week but they aren’t top of the league, their not in the top u23 league, O’hare deserves to start Saturday and Murphy should be on the bench, outside of that no one hugely stands out and we aren’t in need in any other areas really.

Brucie should think back to when, through injuries he was forced into playing Green . Now you can't say he played badly., same with Davis with even less experience came in and got everybody excited . surely O Hare has proved, time and again he has got to be worth o go . Same with Doyle Hayes every time we've seen him, he's never let anyone down or looked out of place . We are lucky to have a good crop of youngsters, so please let's not waste them . Onwards&Upwards Villaforever.

Agree0 Disagree1

Green wasn’t brought in because of injury, he forced his way into the team and Bruce used him sparingly built it up and then start of these season he was a regular, the way it should be. Davis was forced in because of injury.

Agree1 Disagree0

21 Feb 2018 15:50:34
Not saying all the young kids are good enough for first team that's stating the bleeding obvious,
When I see the manager bring in this loanee from spurs he is not any better than o'hare or Hayes
Yet Bruce will play him Saturday I suppose to keep him happy,
Just to see 1 or 2 young players on bench to bring on for 15-25 mins would make my day,

Agree0 Disagree1

21 Feb 2018 17:07:25
Hayes plays a completely different position to what Onomah has been playing, or trying to play.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Feb 2018 18:20:52
Whats wrong with lanbury in the 10 shirt he's back from injury?

Agree1 Disagree0

21 Feb 2018 19:47:58
Chris the point I was making was, these kids have come in and made an impact . So why shouldent the others . i'm sorry if one of my points was incorrect,

Agree0 Disagree1

21 Feb 2018 20:07:18
We employ the guy to manage, he sees them day in day out, and picks the team he is paid to do.
It’s not a joke, it’s not a conspiracy, it’s his job.
Maybe he doesn’t think they are ready, perhaps they didn’t fit in to his game plan, there is a million reasons.
He has guided us to 8 wins, 1 draw 1 loss. What ever you think the points do not lie, he has been picking the team to do the job at hand.
We had a bad day on Tuesday, and still luckily got a point, no wins in two games, and the knives are out.
it’s laughable. Yet, we are laughed at, not with for these stupid, blind pointless comments.
No wonder we have a clown from another club coming in here getting airtime, most of us still think we have a god given right for things, and have forgotten where we were heading.

Agree2 Disagree1

Flackie didn't you know talking sense is banned on here. The youth team would probably beat Barcelona, Bruce just doesn’t like them, sack him now. 😂😂😂.

Agree1 Disagree1

21 Feb 2018 21:40:32
Hey lads, it`s all about opinions and feelings on here, if people see things differently to you, why come to the conclusion that they are talking rubbish.
In fact a radio station that broadcasts near where I live had two football celebrities on over the weekend and they both seemed to agree with most of what`s being said on here, does that mean that you are making no sense?
Just an observation.

Agree0 Disagree1

21 Feb 2018 21:58:36
It’s always seems when things are going right it’s the players who are the reason or Steve Agnew, when things are going wrong it’s always Bruce, no mentions the youngsters during the 7 games we went winning, yes we’ve got injuries but 2 games without a win for the first team doesn’t make the youth team world beaters. There’s two outstanding youngsters O’hare and Hepburn Murphy, outside of that there’s one or two who have done ok when played in cup games against poor opposition such as Doyle Hayes and Mitch Clark but because their not pulling up trees for the youth team every week like the other two mentioned really you’d be looking to send them out on loan.

Agree1 Disagree0

Spot on flacks I just can't be bothered to respond to such dribble it's embarrassing and tedious to say the least. they was all licking his rear end 4 games ago. # FICKLE AND POINTLESS.

The last 2 performances have been disappointing but I think we need to gain a little perspective. Villa are W7 D1 L1 in the last 9 games and yet Fulham are still the form team in the League, that was never going to be an easy game, even with a full strength squad. Likewise Preston are unbeaten in 17, you don't achieve that by being a pushover. If I'm totally honest if you offered me 2 points from both these games I'd have taken it but unfortunately injuries have played a major part, once again, in our season.

I think Bruce needs to inject some life into the first 11 this weekend, especially if both Grealish and Adomah are still absent - Personally I would like to see O'Hare given an opportunity but I think we can all accept that won't happen. Perhaps something like this for Wednesday?

Johnstone

Tuanzebe, Chester, Terry, Hutton

Bjarnason, Hourihane

Snodgrass, Lansbury, Grabban

Hogan


I think that would offer plenty of energy in the middle - Not sure what Onomah offers us, he has been hugely disappointing - Lansbury is surely a better option.

Agree1 Disagree0

21 Feb 2018 11:27:15
Agree about anomah he offers nothing
Houlinan scored a great goal against bluenoses but generally he is not offering much else,
Lansbury would be a decent shout along with o'hare but can't see Bruce playing him if I'm honest,
We are getting injurys galore now and that is worrying for me,
Hopefully we get another run started on Saturday,

Agree1 Disagree0

21 Feb 2018 11:32:03
Totally agree with you on Hourihane Mainbob, he offers us plenty of running and has a fantastic shot but I would expect a lot more in terms of dictating the play and tempo.

I remember Lansbury against us last season, he was unplayable, not sure what has happened this season but he would surely be a better option than Onomah at the moment.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Feb 2018 13:10:52
I’d take that team Saturday, Jedinak was poor yesterday especially first half. O’hare should be atleast on the bench and so should Murphy, Davis offers us something else as a big man with good control and strength but misses too many chances, his finishing has cost us 3 points a few times this season.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Feb 2018 13:07:26
You keep talking about O'Hare, but you named a team the other day with no O'Hare in it? Plus what did he do against Peterborough?

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Feb 2018 14:12:38
In the Peterborough game everyone was poor but o'hare was the best on offer.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Feb 2018 14:58:12
As much as mainbob always goes on about him and I sometimes complain, O’hare was the only positive outlet in the Peterborough game and his form in the u23’s deserves a place in the team Saturday.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Feb 2018 08:22:14
Bruce now blaming the state of the pitch?
We played good football on the deck against the bluenoses but now he says that's the reason why we had to play more long ball!
Did not affect Preston passing the ball,
Come on Steve show a bit of class and just admit we were poor and were lucky to get a point on the night,

Agree0 Disagree2

21 Feb 2018 18:29:26
Mainbob you can't resist a side swipe at bruce, so we lost it happens. mainly down to injuries and a very good preston side that havnt lost in seventeen.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Feb 2018 14:33:59
Just saying excuses cuts no ice with me,
Bruce is doing a great job at the moment but blaming the pitch for our performance is a bit rich don't you think,
If he had not brought that up I would not have said a thing,
It was a simply bad day at the office on the night.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Feb 2018 21:51:46
WTW you ask how many Wolves players would get in Villa's team.
You should be more worried about how many Derby and Cardiff players would get in the Villa team.

how many Derby and Cardiff players would get in Villa team?
You're making hard work of it now.
Seven on the bounce and still miles behind.
Only Grealish would get on our bench with Afobe and Bonatini.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Feb 2018 22:52:28
PS
That was our main problem tonight, no energy . Against a side like Preston you have to match them .

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Feb 2018 22:46:08
Rode our luck against a good, hard to beat side . Saying that we perhaps deserved something, on our last 20 mins . First half terrible, no closing down, sat off them allowing them to play . When Onomah first came, he looked strong, athletic and quite useful . Now he looks a big unfit lump, has not got a football brain . On the Pluss sidn Grabban had a great debut, looked calm and skilful . Once again Hutton was Mr concistancy, Defencivly and attacking, how about the two shots . Thor looked much better in the middle, makes some great runs in the box . Grabban looks the type of player, who would fit in and play anywhere . A little mention for our friends up the road, iv heard they where lucky it should have been more . Onwards and Upwards Villaforever.

A point is better than non however another error at the back is worrying and costly. Attitude and commitment from most the team in the first half was a disgrace, given the chance 7/ 11 of them should have been subbed. Seemed to improve second half, Bruce was pro-active and the subs made a difference. Ref was abysmal, gifting us the penalty in the second half probably still doesn't balance the amount of decisions he gave against us. Onomah shouldn't be anywhere near the first team, ability is average, decision making is shocking, holds onto the ball for too long and attitude stinks. Tuanzebe got ran all over the shop and hogan for all his effort and commitment hindered us tonight, took a header off grabbans head who was in a much better position and ballooned it over and missed a good chance. With the players who are fit the starting x11 bar Onomah was the best we had available, you can't magic players out of thin air. That being said their are no excuses for the weekend, O'hare should be in the number 10 role, Grabban on instead of Onomah, keep hogan up top. Hepburn Murphy and Davis on the bench, wouldn't mind seeing Hutton back at right back and Taylor at left back, he was out of form so was took out, now Elmo is unfit and out of form and tuanzebe didn't perform the best tonight he deserves his chance to prove himself again. Injuries are crippling us and if Snodgrass is injured aswell we are in more trouble but there's still some options.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Feb 2018 21:03:24
Bruces team selection again has cost us aswell as injurys play offs is best we can hope four, with the players we have we shouldn't be set up to draw with fulham, we should be attacking with pace n power, also wots the point having youth setups if we don't play them.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Feb 2018 21:58:08
I have to say Davis has a habit of missing sitters. He did it against Brentford and again tonight. He is useless. Very lucky to get the penalty but it's a point towards promotion.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Feb 2018 22:08:20
Attacking with pace and power with injured players is hard, we got pace in strikers, play all of them and ask Di Matteo what happens.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Feb 2018 08:12:06
Disappointing performance and very lucky to get a point,
What worries me is the lack of high tempo at home,
We did it against the bluenoses, Norwich, and Bristol c but that's it,
Why do we let the away teams dictate the play most of the time,
I really hope that o'hare gets a bench job at least on Saturday,
Players are dropping like flys now with injurys or illness,
This will test the squad now more than ever,
