Calmed down a bit now. A lot of negatives from the game, most have been touched on.
Mine is concerning our defence and especially Tyrone Mings. Watched him very closely and being an old centre half myself there's just so much wrong with his entire performance.
He should be touch tight with his player at all times not standing in space marking no one, only way that happens is if you're the sweeper in a back 5 clearing anything that gets through.
Then there is his constant wondering over to the left back spot for no reason causing Hause to move over ditto Konsa leaving the right back birth vacated, then we give pelters to Konsa for being out of position. Keep your shape, mark your man then if runners aren't tracked, bollock the midfield.
Follow those simple rules and there's not so much need for last ditch tackles and blocks, which make him look good but in fact cover his own poor judgement and always seems to block the goalies view.
2 ex centre halves on the coaching team 1 a former England captain and they can't even see that? Shocking!
Mind you watching from half way up the stands, WTF is that all about? Should be prowling the touchline like a caged tiger, snarling instructions to the players but I guess "football " has moved on from that, sadly, don't want to hurt their feelings.
Special mention to Douglas Luiz who has been superb since the restart and never gave up Thursday, though his look of disgust after he'd made a lung busting run forward to find nobody supporting him said it all.
Now there's a player you could build a midfield around and I'll go so far as to say he'll be a better player than Grealish but I'll expect pelters for that statement.
Also a point about Neil Taylor, yes we know he's not very good, but he's a tryer and gives everything he can, limited that may be. And with this current shambles I'd rather have a team of players who give everything than 11 fancy dan footballers who curl up into a ball when the going gets tough.
Sorry to go on but it needed to be said. ๐Ÿ‘.

I'll throw a name into the ring, not that personally I'd want him, Andre Villas Boas. Marseille are skint and looking to move on their best players to raise money. Good shout? Bad shout? And he must already like the club as it says so in his name.
And in reference to the Alan Pardew link further down what if we fancified it up a bit and called him Alain Pardeau, sounds like an exotic foreign coach? Any better?
Myself for a coach I'd always choose Parry's ๐Ÿ˜.

That`s a real good shout Moose.
The bloke has pretty much got it all mate.


2.) 09 Jul 2020 19:43:11
Good shout, depends on which division we are in I guess! We need a manager to take us to the next level if we stay up, if relegated do we stick or twist with Smith?


3.) 09 Jul 2020 20:56:08
No we get rid we need new approach make the team with our own players and let them grow into players.

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.
NOT TRUE I AM NOT LIKE THAT.

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.

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?

Get rid of 002 and you will get people back, 001 and 033 good guys.

{Ed033's Note - ok thanks

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

Nobody who's available really grabs my attention JK, RHLT. Pochetino, could we tempt him in the championship? I'm being realistic and doubt it despite our prestige as a club. That's why I've gone for the above choices. Mellberg and Laursen are cutting their managerial teeth admittedly, but similar to Solskjaer at Man Utd (yes I know more stable club) who surrounded himself with people who played for and know the club inside out. Like I say going for "names" hasn't worked out too well not since MON early days so why not try something leftfield for a change? It would certainly give the fans a massive lift having 3-4 legends looking after things and maybe they would be given the time and patience to start building a legacy which would include a more productive youth system.

If Smith does go and we're relegated we stand little chance of a "big" name. My personal preference would be Mellberg/ Laursen partnership with Petrov on the coaching staff maybe even offer Barry a coaching role as he's on the released list and may want to get into that side of the game. 4 ex Villa captain's, ex internationals, leaders and winners. Time for a different way of thinking.

This "cull" is for players who should be breaking down the door of the 1st team not knobbing about getting a game here and there in the lower leagues. This will hopefully be a watershed moment for our next batch of youth and not hindered by 20 odd year olds in their way who are probably too good for the u23s but not good enough for the 1st team.
A plan is in place, just needs time to take root.

Some decent calls there Villajohn especially Albrighton back in a Villa shirt. Obviously our wanted list will have changed dramatically once in the championship and reminds me of a quote from Big Ron when he had the boot " one day you're shopping for Collymore, the next, shopping for cauliflower " classic ๐Ÿ˜ what we wouldn't give for a larger than life character like him back at the helm.
