You can't judge most things on pre season friendlies, it's about getting fitness levels right and players getting used to each other. However certain basics are fundamental to playing good football, when you have Taylor on his right foot in front of goal and hasn't got a clue what to do that's inexcusable.

If you have Bree at right back and doesn't know how do go forward. You have Hogan who tries to run around a defender and is five minutes too late. So hopefully Deano has seen enough to make sure average players don't feature this season.

Slightly harsh. think Taylor only had 1 chance on his right foot in front of goal and there were about 8 bodies between them. Can hogan do much more? He’s a centre forward playing right wing and still managed to bag a goal.


2.) 22 Jul 2019 10:50:35
Taylor put his chance on target aswell, can’t help it being blocked by someone.

Everyone used to love Hogans “intelligent runs” and slate Bruce’s football for the reason he couldn’t perform, glad everyone’s starting to realise he makes runs down blind alleys in which Pirlo would struggle to find him. Good lad, hard working but not that great a player.


3.) 22 Jul 2019 21:54:43
Agreed, nobody can expect a defender to score from outside the area with their wrong foot. He looked for a better option and had a go because there wasn't one. Even Jack looks for the pass first in those areas.

If Deano played Bree to put him in the shop window sadly it backfired.

He was equally as awful last pre-season. Unfortunately his passing is woeful and his lack of game time results in an extremely poor reading of the game.


2.) 18 Jul 2019 08:59:04
Shame because Bree was very highly rated at Barnsley I thought was quite a coop when we signed him. I think
He was badly managed by the old regime. I think he could of done well had he been better looked after. He may have to take a step backwards to improve his own game. I’d be happy to loan him to a decent championship club where he could get some games under his belt, grow in confidence and flourish.

Anyone heard any news about Mile Jedinak, Alan Hutton or Glen Whelan, I appreciate all three were towards the end of their career, however they were all good professionals and were ultimately victims of our success. I hope they are all able to offer their experience in some form in the near future.

Good call Scot Cafu

Think hutton off to forest
Heard whealan linked with Blackburn
Not heard anything on jedi

I thought Jedi May of been ideal as a player/ coach would offer a lot of premier league experience in this very inexperienced squad. That’s not a complaint about our squad I’m fully in support of the approach we are taking.


 

 

22 Apr 2019 17:50:32
Guys guess the team for next Sunday, no Jack no Mcginn no tammy? . My bet would be hutton, elphick, green, Davis, Lansbury will all play, 11 wins would have been good however protect your vital asetts for the playoffs is far more important.

And we shouldn't give Leeds any extra knowledge on how we play. We could meet them in the final (fingers crossed we get there)


2.) 06 May 2019 10:05:29
I believe that we will get there and win it. Up the Villa!

The current league table tonite makes depressing reading, so our season is shot so my message to Deano and the players, play with freedom and show us what you can do, we are safe so there's absolutely nothing to lose, let's at least get some pride back.

scotcaffu

1.) 02 Mar 2019 09:14:44
It looks bad but 8 points isn't insurmountable. If the team put everything into a good run then 8 wins and a draw out of the 12 would get us to 70 points which could see us sneak in there.


2.) 02 Mar 2019 13:13:13
Come on mate there's more chance of me winning lotterey.


3.) 02 Mar 2019 14:00:35
I didn't say it was likely but none of the teams standing between us and 6th are setting the league alight either so we shouldn't be throwing the towel in just yet.


4.) 02 Mar 2019 17:12:50
Totally agree rknewell, unlikely but still have that outside chance.


5.) 03 Mar 2019 18:04:50
Win at the cow shed and we go above BCFC.
Forest and Hull play each other so again a win at the cow shed and we can be in 8th.
GD better than Derby who play Wigan and Wednesday and the way they are going they could lose both so we could go 7th.
Lets believe
Our talisman is back, and did we see a more advanced roll for Hourihane?
Mathematically we are ok, we can make it. Every season we have a dip in form and then we rally.
This season is no different.
WE CAN DO IT, BELIEVE! I DO.


6.) 13 Mar 2019 21:59:59
Not so depressing now, is it?

So first the positives, ok not too many, I think Deano thinks we are still in the championship, Jack. McGinn Elghazi Taylor Elmo were all found out today which is really worrying. Wes showed some promising touches, Ming's and Engels were our best two players today, nothing on the bench to change things. If I was the owner I would be asking what have I got for 130 million and why can't a 15 million left back replace the most average short arce ineffective full back in the league, I have been to both games and seen enough to see it's going to be a long long season. McGinn can't expect quality defenders to fall for his arce first approach, he gave the ball away far too many times. This should be a wake up call, teams will not show us any respect and losing can become a habit. It's only how I see it.

Kodja our for next few games according to Deanos press conference and on his way according to various press reports, either way we are now short upfront and many on here were already concerned about the lack of quality back up strikers. There is no way of can operate with just Wes and Davies as the only main strike force. An injury to Wes and we are in the brown and smelly. Any ideas who could step up to the plate as a main striker. Sturridge suddenly looks appealing.

scotcaffu

1.) 15 Aug 2019 16:41:27
Relax scotty mate, Kodjia ain`t going anywhere just yet.
And fitness wise could possibly be ready for the Everton game, fingers crossed.
I have no doubt that Trez could do exactly what Kodjia does if given the task, this squad is full of hungry players eager to get in the side.
And I am confident we will get our striker in January.
I am sure you agree Deano is not an idiot, and there must have been some underlying reason why we never got Maupay in.
He has someone in mind for sure, who I am not sure.


2.) 15 Aug 2019 16:59:00
Dave unfortunately January is a long way off and Kodja isn't the answer now anyway.

As the dust has now settled after the weekend football and everyone has their views on what happened, my view is that on reflection playing spurs away may turn out to be a blessing in disguise. Yes there were positives also we now know exactly what we are up against facing the top sides. I think it will turn out to be a massive learning experience for manager and players alike and will make us better prepared for the rest of the season. Understand Deanos caution with throwing all of the new signings in from the off, as it turns out I think he should have been a tad more adventurous, after all there wasnt too much to loose. I think we will have a decent if not brilliant season, my only reservation is that we should be moving away from playing the majority of the team from last year's championship side, if he sticks to this, I think if results don't go our way the unrest will kick in very quickly which is no good for anyone. Looking forward to Saturday I'm sure VP will be a rocking full house and hopefully will kick start our winning ways.

Went yesterday great day out good atmosphere as usual with the traveling 3000,nice stadium. Spurs are a class side so no complaints against the result. It's obviously early days and it will make us sharper and better prepared for what's to come. Couple of observations, we kept hearing from the press about the number of players we signed and how much we spent, we were top or nearly top spenders. So I found it strange that we only started with only three outfield players different from Wembley and finished yesterday's game with only three of the new outfield players, based on this not sure what the 140 million has actually delivered. Appreciate its very early days, however i just hope the investment proves to be money well spent, if not Deano and the rest involved in the purchases will be held accountable by the owners and rightly so.

Guess as a manager u have to think of players u got how would they feel if they get dropped for a player that didn't do a full pre season is not fully fit u and u did and they start ahead of u! U have to try keep the dressing room happy for the team. I wouldn't b surprised if a few new players said I don't want to start but go on in second half I'm not up to it atm.


 

 

08 Aug 2019 21:44:18
Ok guys Saturday is two sleeps away, exciting times ahead, so who will get the correct starting team. My go first

4.) 09 Aug 2019 08:27:45
Don’t think we can field 12 fella.


5.) 09 Aug 2019 09:59:08
Heaton, Guilbert, Mings, Engels, Targett, Hourihane, Jack, Mcginn, El Gazi, Wesley, Jota

Bench - Steer/ Kalinic, Kozni, Taylor, Elmo, Luiz, Marv, Treguzet, Kodja, Hause, Davis, Chester,

Sorry That should read Bus not bench.


6.) 09 Aug 2019 10:57:20

7.) 09 Aug 2019 22:32:39

Kenn the brutal realty is he was probably to good with a sharp brain for those around him at small heath, hence he didn't fit in and wasn't a first choice starter.

TOV, bit naive if you don't mind me saying we are short in more than the Ch position, that wouldn't solve all our problems.

Dave's, like me you are passionate loyal fans that have done a "life sentence" in terms of time following our beloved team. I hear your frustrations about the negatively shown by the impatient few on here. Fans want instant success and moan as soon as there is any sign of adversity. I think we all have to understand that we spend a lot of money following our team, watching managers and players that have "won the lottery"financially and there are times that we should be able to get things of our chest. We all started the season with a clean sheet of paper, we spent £130 million and expectations were high, after all we are Aston Villa who won ten games on the trot. However we look at the league table today"early days"I fully accept however of the three who were promoted only one team had not won a game and got no points, so the pessemists have the amunition to complain, not fair I agree however the facts are there for all to see, maximum spend no return to date. So I am still and will remain in the half full glass camp but let the doubters have their say and hopefully very soon we can gag them.

I agree wtw Jack had not had the best of starts and I am sure he would be honest enough to accept some of the critism, however firstly it is unfair to judge him so quickly. He is a talent and given a couple more games I am certain his class will shine through. I agree that he may be trying too hard and is not playing his natural game. I would not advocate taking the captaincy off him, however if his game starts to get affected it would be in his best interests if he hands the arm band to a born leader Ming's, I would let Jack make the decision if the time comes in the best interests of the team. Jack will come good, I would put money on it.

Dave we all like and respect Deano, however he seems to be the only one that can't see what a lot of the faithful see in terms of our defensive line up, I really hope he changes his position soon, otherwise he will start to get some flack if results don't go our way. Of course we all want the same thing however we are not the most patient of fans and unrest will quickly kick in if results don't improve if he sticks to the current defensive line up.
