I was thinking about VillaDave today, still can't get over it, what a shock . Just shows how fickle life is .
Holte Enders in the sky.

Still gutted mate, would like to have known his in person. Holte Enders in the sky.

13 Sep 2021 21:45:14
Guys have I missed something about villadave. Please fill me in as I only use this site.

13 Sep 2021 21:51:39
I have now seen the thread and replied on it. Absolutely gutted. Rip villadave.

13 Sep 2021 23:49:47
Very saddened to learn of his passing he often visited our page and was a lovely bloke.
Thoughts are with his family and friends.

12 Sep 2021 17:09:24
In January window we need a but kicker in the middle who is big and strong and can tackle, a cb who can actually defend and doesn't make mistakes constant, and a left back who has pace because target is so slow, and is also a weak link in my opinion, and tuzanbe isn't the answer at cb aswell, mungo Bridge or revan could be thou, but I'd like to see hause play with konsa when they played together last season they were a solid unit.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Sep 2021 20:50:31
Dare I say for the umpteenth time that Eric Dier ticks both those boxes… ??‍♂️


13 Sep 2021 18:42:56
The problem with Dier is, if he can’t get a game for a team fighting to regain their status as comfortable top 6/ top 4 side. How can there be any real confidence that he can help us make that jump for the first time?

12 Sep 2021 16:28:01
For me I'd play konsa and hause at cb, mings is the David James at cb he's no where near England class, yet alone be villa captain konsa makes him look good, captain should be mgginn, konsa, or emi martinez in my opinion.

I agree. He had counciling for being crap you don't get that with others.

12 Sep 2021 16:57:00
He didn’t have counselling for being crap, he had it for mental health issues, probably not the sort of thing you should be taking the piss out of.

12 Sep 2021 18:00:56
It wasnt mental health issues he said its because fans saying his rubbish an he needed counciling to get over it! Mental health problems isn't that at all schizophrenia depression that's mental health issues not a over paid crap footballer.

12 Sep 2021 18:12:24
Again, you’re wrong. He’s been open and honest about his mental health issues in the past, even doing an interview with Prince William about it.

Says a lot about you that that’s where you attack, instead of saying he’s crap or he makes too many mistakes, the first place you went was for his counselling. You can see why players don’t talk about these things.

12 Sep 2021 18:43:52
The England footballer Tyrone Mings has revealed how he struggled with mental health problems at Euro 2020, with a crisis of self-confidence leaving him feeling like 95% of the country had doubts about him. From Sky sports doesn't give a mental health problem just the nation doubted him can you see why with his constant mistakes! there's nothing actually up with him on a form he would write that he was perfectly fine so its rubbish your wrong not me end of!

12 Sep 2021 18:55:26
As I said, says everything I need to know about you that you’d aim straight at someone’s personal struggles, at one of your own team aswell.

“Football, Prince William and Our Mental Health: Tyrone Mings opens up on his personal struggles in this BBC One Documentary, also featuring Frank Lampard and Joe Hart, The film will also tell the stories of men from across the country who have been affected by mental health issues. ” aired May 2020, 12 months before the euros.

{Ed001's Note - I think it is time he took a break. I had to delete one post from him that was offensive and he clearly has no empathy for others. The exact kind of person that helps perpetuate mental health problems with his pathetic attitude.}

12 Sep 2021 19:10:30
I think you’re right Ed, everyone can have differing views on football etc but the way he’s gone about this with Mings has shown everything you need to know about his character.

{Ed001's Note - I think so too. He was given a chance to think about what he was saying and just doubled down on it, so clearly he is happy to abuse his own team's players. Then he wonders why footballers suffer from mental health problems!}

12 Sep 2021 19:16:29
And it’s this sort of mentality that stops players coming out and talking about it!

{Ed001's Note - exactly! And not just players, people in general. Then knobheads like him will wonder why the suicide rate amongst young males is so high.}

12 Sep 2021 21:32:44
The trouble with him he don't think before he types. Some people you can educate and some you can't!

{Ed007's Note - He's lucky I'm in my bed on my tablet or he would be facing a heavy dressing down & rant from me, that level of pig ignorance in this day and age is as sad as it is shocking.}

12 Sep 2021 23:24:44
That is the new man Walkies. When he came back, he couldn’t wait to tell us, he was a changed man . Leopards and spots, comes to mind . Three identities and still the same idiot .

13 Sep 2021 01:42:43
He was gone off this page for a long time, I have to say I didn’t miss his rubbish posts 1 bit, fair play Ed and I for one hope it’s a lengthy ban.

13 Sep 2021 06:16:37
WTW= Witless Talking Wonder.

13 Sep 2021 06:45:53
WTW is entitled to his opinion I think some of you may be forgetting thaslating him when he can’t answer back especially the Witless Talking Wonder comment.
As for Mings overrated not good enough and thinks he’s better than he actually is especially since becoming an international.
He needs to go back to basics concentrate on his football and stop being distracted by other things as well the chip on his shoulder and his massive ego.

13 Sep 2021 08:53:08
Glad we all agree gents?.

13 Sep 2021 10:10:21
If my comment was inappropriate then I’m sure that it wouldn’t have appeared on the site, and judging from the Ed’s comments yesterday, they would be inclined to agree with me.
If you don’t KV, then I can only assume he must be a mate of yours, and I could therefore understand you leaping to his defence.
It is because of such dribble that some excellent posters have left this site, Flackie springs to mind immediately.
As for Tyrone we’re 4 games into the season and already the knives are out. Yes he made a mistake, but he has publicly put his hands up and admitted that, and has even apologized to his teammates and the fans. If he was as consistently bad as some people think, then I doubt he would have broken into the England setup in the first place. I don’t necessarily rate Southgate as a manager but he surely knows a thing or two about defending and those who have the qualities to defend.
He was after all a defender himself.
Dean Smith has seen enough in Tyrone to appoint him our captain and criticism to the extent that I have recently read, is in my opinion also a criticism of the manager and indeed the hierarchy of the club, who have the faith in the manager’s ability to make the correct decisions.
I would just add that as a back 3, none of them appeared very comfortable with it, which is hardly surprising as it is something new to them. That doesn’t mean to say that it can’t work but let’s give them a chance to adjust to it before wading in with the heavy criticism.

13 Sep 2021 11:49:14
Couldn’t agree more mark, none of them looked comfortable. Mings seems to split opinion, a man and as our captain, I love him, stands for what he believes in and puts the club and his team mates first. First game of the season we saw Watford’s forwards bully both Mings and Konsa, yet no one would mention Konsa’s name, I couldn’t understand it.

As a player, I think Mings is more than good enough for a mid table premier league side, I have doubts whether he can take the next step, but I’m not watching him day in day out, so I trust Smith and the coaching staffs judgement a lot more than my own. Criticisms of players on the pitch, their performance etc is perfectly fine to me, but aiming straight at someone’s personal problems, whether it be health, mental health, appearance, family etc it’s all bang out of order and for me tells you everything you need to know about someone.

13 Sep 2021 13:59:15
He’s being spouting rubbish and making up complete lies here for a few years now, we all know what he’s about at this point.
And kingvilla your right he is entitled to his opinion, only thing is that nobody on here wants to hear it hence why most of his posts are ignored by 90 odd % of people who post here.

13 Sep 2021 12:00:30
There’s so much I could add to this thread as I have lived 30+ years of my life with a mother with ‘real’ mental health problems (schizophrenia or bi polar or whatever they’re calling it now).


12 Sep 2021 14:47:25
Was relatively pleased with our performance yesterday although the result was disappointing
Got the feeling that this squad will produce more good days than bad in the weeks to come
Ramsey opened my eyes as to just how good a player he really is
Yes there were mistakes made by others but overall I enjoyed the game
Some exciting pieces of skill from Bailey, Bert looking sublime at times and Ollie’s determination and desire to score goals give us so much to look forward to in the coming weeks
Add to that the return of our Argentinian duo
and we Villans have plenty of good days ahead.

Agree1 Disagree0

12 Sep 2021 14:58:29
Good summary big Tone! I was impressed with Ramsey too!

12 Sep 2021 15:50:02
Don’t know how this will work but a proper midfield 3 like we had yesterday got the best out of McGinn and Ramsey, Ramsey had to go off because the ref was itching to send 1 of our players off being on a booking already, what do we do now? 4-3-3? 3-5-2? In a 3-5-2 are we going to play Bailey left wing back and god help us El Ghazi at right wing back to accommodate Ings and Watkins up top? IMO 4-3-3, same midfield 3 as yesterday and Watkins left, Ings middle, Bailey right, even though that’d be my 1st choice line up, there’s a lot of talent knocking on the door to break into that team, we’ve got a good squad there fellas, I can’t even find a starting spot for our record signing, never mind Traore, Carney, Sanson, El Ghazi etc. good times ahead of if the team spirit is good and no sulking if they’re on the bench


12 Sep 2021 14:01:25
We didn't lose yesterday because of Jed Steer, you're scapegoating the wrong player, we were in that game till Mings made 1 of the 10 minimum mistakes he makes in a season that costs us points, and if you're going to say there's no place for sentiment even though Steer played a massive part in getting into the Prem, so did Mings. Didn't help that the ref was a total homer but although we gave a very good account of ourselves, the better team won.


Agree1 Disagree0

12 Sep 2021 14:17:41
Last two refs we’ve had have been abysmal, is it just me who thought last season the reffing weren’t that bad? It’s like crowds come back in and they rubbish themselves!

12 Sep 2021 11:30:40
Thought we played well 1st half yestueday mings makes another error the games over i even thought he was at fault 4 the 3rd goal. But you will get days like that we are only villa there champions of europe lukuku differnt class. We will be fine tho we have enough to stay up every year which is all clubs like villa brighton brentford west ham etc want to do. This season even tho we had a bad start i think 13th to 14th will be where we are at which isn't great but isn't terrible.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Sep 2021 12:27:30
I disagree with your comment WTW when you say all Villa want to do is survive in the Premiership.
Our owners have made clear they want to be at the top and play European matches.

12 Sep 2021 12:32:11
Do you think that these owners just want to stay up?

12 Sep 2021 13:38:48
Yep I look at most owners apart from chelsea Utd an City they all would of said it gona cost about 500 million to get the players an squad they have so let's just spend enough to have a stable club. Villa aren't alone most of the leagues like it most can't compete. Our owners have done great iam just gratful we have a club. Football changed not just for villa but most teams in the league sky has ruined the game an foreign owners its not even intresting now take newcastle yesturday how can they compete with ronaldo pogba fernandez etc its just not fun to watch. Staying up for about 14 clubs is priority anything else is a bonus.

12 Sep 2021 13:49:06
If we're in bottom half at end of season Smith gets sacked il tell that, owners want Europe in 2/ 3 years, and walkies villa fans rnt just happy being in prem that's not acceptable at all mate we should be aiming to be top 8 in my opinion.

12 Sep 2021 13:57:48
So if you think that walk, I take it you think the owners are liars? Because they’ve said the complete opposite to what you’ve said they’ll be happy with?

12 Sep 2021 14:56:44
Minimum achievement for our owners this season will be top ten anything below that then smith will be under huge pressure.

12 Sep 2021 15:07:46
That depends what you mean by europe there's champions league then there's europa then there's this other europe for coming 8th or 9th now. If you on about top 4 we have no chance europa will be hard aswel. Lisen we have great owners every owner will aim high an tell the fans that or the fans wouldn't go or be happy. We spent jacks money but they didn't invest any of there own money this year if you want europe you must buy a big squad and a good squad a few injurys and we have had a awful start. We are what we are mate if you want the best you have to pay other wise you get a manager from great bar and the likes of mings who mess up a lot end of the day if we come 12th its a good season. You won't get europe when we can't beat watford an brentford mate. Now you gona call me all sorts now but facts are not just villa but half the leagues just making the numbers up!

12 Sep 2021 16:14:06
Not going to call you any names, and I don’t think anyone else will, I just think your wrong. And I can’t really work out what your point is, first of all you said “ We will be fine tho we have enough to stay up every year which is all clubs like villa brighton brentford west ham etc want to do. ” Then when everyone pointed out that’s the opposite of what the owners have said and what their actions and investment have pointed toward, you backtracked on that.

Then you said “ We are what we are mate if you want the best you have to pay other wise you get a manager from great bar”, everyone has to be born somewhere mate, that point makes no sense, the location of someone’s birth has absolutely no bearing on their ability in any chosen profession?

Then you said “ Football changed not just for villa but most teams in the league sky has ruined the game an foreign owners its not even intresting now” if that’s truly how you feel, why do watch and spend so much time debating it?

As you can see a lot of what you’ve said doesn’t add up and just sounds like a bit of a defeatist attitude/ sulk after we’ve been given a hiding by the champions of Europe. In which case, we’ve all been there, tomorrow’s a brighter day and next week is a chance to put things right, cheer up.

12 Sep 2021 16:23:19
True but like I have also said b4 mings is overrated got mistakes in him every game, also if we want to go higher we need a better manager else we will be where we are deano is not a good manager, to get to higher places we need a manager who has the tactical brain and has the experience, you get what you pay for and deano is a championship manager at best, until owners see sense then we won't go anywhere.

12 Sep 2021 16:34:16
I understand your point 4eva, could be worded better like, I’m still 50/ 50 on whether Smith is good enough to take us to the next level, simply because everything he’s been asked he’s done, get us promoted done first time of asking, build a new squad and keep it in the prem done that, take us to the next level and make us mid table done that. Who’s to say he can’t rise to the next challenge? I’d rather his performance so far rewarded and him given the chance to.

If we aren’t top half this season I think he’ll go, but atleast then he’ll have been given the chance.

Personally I think you saying his not a prem manager is nonsense, he’s proved otherwise the last two seasons. Just personal opinion though.

12 Sep 2021 17:13:59
No worries mate, that's what it's about opinions Chris ?.

12 Sep 2021 17:51:25
Your right there, that’s why we love it!

12 Sep 2021 10:51:34
Going to make a point here Steer isn't good enough and too many people need to take off their he got us up tinted glasses. His overall game is atrocious. Having played and coached the game for many years I've had keepers taken to academies and gone on to do well and some fail and be released but their game is better than his. He's at the club cause Lambert brought him to the club.
Their is 4-5-6 keepers I can name who we have had at the club who are better than him and one of those is currently playing for the prats across the city. Another is smashing it for Dundee in Scotland. Steer is not good enough and it's time you start to actually realise this. If you want to attack me for saying this go ahead but I couldn't care. Steer isn't good enough. Rant over and Rob out.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Sep 2021 14:46:24
So are we scapegoating steer for Mings horror show of a performance?
