So at what point do we accept mediocrity as totally acceptable. I hear we haven't been outplayed, fair comment, I hear refereeing decisions have gone against us, again fair comment. I hear too many unforced errors, fair comment, I hear give the manager time, again fair comment, so we keep going until January accepting mediocrity, at which point it's too late, so let's us fans let the owners and management know we are here to support them, however this can't be unconditional and the message has to be, we are Aston Villa and failure is not an option with all of the money that has been invested.

As it was their money that was invested, surely it’s there decision what is or isn’t an option?


2.) 25 Sep 2019 14:05:50
These are business men who have built their business on success, I would imagine "it's their view" as well that failure is not an option. Perhaps I'm wrong or stupid, and if things do fail they will keep pumping money in.


3.) 25 Sep 2019 17:23:07
Pointless going on about it scotty, I think you said 5 games.
So let's see how things are after those 5 games.
All of this only breeds discontentment on the terraces, media and the club itself.


4.) 25 Sep 2019 18:05:02
This is getting ridiculous to be honest. We stay up this season and next season the same people will be wondering why we aren't winning the league.
The 'massive' spend averages around 10mill a player, you rarely get world beaters for that sort of money.


5.) 29 Sep 2019 14:06:23
To tell you the truth, lads, I did believe that it would be 2-2 or at least a tie between Aston Villa and Burnley, and I think that it's a fair result. I still think that we will get 6 points in our two next games against Norwich and Brighton. Come on, Villa!

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.

scotcaffu

1.) 22 Jul 2019 07:20:32
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.


 

 

18 Jul 2019 02:04:30
If Deano played Bree to put him in the shop window sadly it backfired.

scotcaffu

1.) 18 Jul 2019 06:07:03
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.


 

 

14 Jul 2019 12:53:04
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.

scotcaffu

1.) 14 Jul 2019 18:43:59
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!

Just got back home from Sheffield and I asked my nine year old grandson what he thought about the villa today ( he watched it online) . His exact words " Grandad at least we won games last year and I had a great day at Wembley, the championship isn't all bad"

14 Dec 2019 13:21:44
Tricky game today, Sheffield have been one of the surprise teams of the season do far. I hope we don't sit back I think that could be our undoing. It is a start of run of games against teams where we need to get valuable points. Our visit to bramall land last summer was not a pleasant experience, common lads show some fight today and come away with three points, backing Wes to score today and have had a bet on him.

No fight no nothing I’m starting to loose hope don’t know about you lad?


2.) 14 Dec 2019 17:33:15
i'm not sure about the side a new 4 year contract for the boss i thought was a bit generous. the same old failings 5 mins into the second half goals given away, last ten minutes, rabbits in the headlights. i'd expect this flaw to be coached out, its been the same since my first game, in the bad old days of division 3.


3.) 14 Dec 2019 17:36:20
On the way back now gutted! Wheres the effort dean smith set us up so negative awful all round kodjia should of had the pen.


4.) 14 Dec 2019 18:11:34
Well my bets gone down, never stood a chance of winning. Reading the latest comments, these are honest observations, like walkies I have wasted my money again today. So Dave and daz no wind up, we are going down if things don't change dramatically. We are so predictable and easy to play against, Deano and the players are serving exactly the same up game after game. So if I am one of the owners having investing heavenly I want to see something for my money and if I am not seeing any improvement just like any failing business I own I change things sooner rather than later. The end of February based on current results and form will be too late if we are in the bottom three. January is the latest to act in terms of players and management so let's see if the owners are determined to stay in the premier.


5.) 14 Dec 2019 20:14:36
Next to have more upfront 4-4-2 midfield exhausted playing the way there are .


 

 

10 Dec 2019 19:14:37
In response to Daz and Dave, like everything you post my comments are my personal views and opinions. I don't agree with patronising, sugar coating things or appeasing those who in my opinion readily accept when the obvious is not working. Taking Wes, I watched all of those players that Dave refers to in their goal scoring ratio, I can't recall any of them having lost the ball rolling around and moaning every time they lost the ball or was fairly tackled. He is obviously under pressure with his price tag, so instead of running around like a headless chicken and acting like a petulant kid, roll your sleeves up and win the fans over. Again all of the players Dave refers to all got respect even though they weren't scoring. Deano has no problem criticizing the team and inviduals when it's warranted and I think I have the same right as a season ticket holder in excess of thirty years. Tottenham, Arsenal, Eveton. Watford fans all had their say, West Ham and Southampton are in due process. I have never called for Deano's head, however if things do not improve I won't be alone in voicing concern. I was extremely disappointed that Deano continued to play the long ball from Heaton on Sunday, Wes hardly won a challenge and the ball came straight back at us. When things aren't working quality coaches at least try and change things, I have seen very little evidence of Deano altering things when things obviously are not working. We have to accept we can't win as often as we would all like, however let's go down with a fight rather than a whimper. So I don't make comments to wind people up as Dave and Daz have suggested, I spend my money and am entitled to my views, if these are unpopular with sensitive ears I can't help that.

1.) 10 Dec 2019 20:09:21
There you go, I have said more or less the same as you over the last couple of weeks, and realise things could be better.
We need another striker, we need a couple more attacking mids or wingers yes agreed.
But I am like some others on here, Daz, Rk, DaveDean Kenn, Mainbob and now Delany to name a few, we are not so damning of our manager or players.
We are prepared to give everyone time and the chance they deserve to get it right. that is the difference.
Yes you have every right to your views and opinions, but Constant complaining and head pecking is not good for banter surely.
Let us be optimistic and hope everything starts to fall into place, the plan is yet young, give it chance.


2.) 11 Dec 2019 00:38:03
You haven’t got time. This is the Premier League. It is ruthless. You need a Premier League manager. Deano is a nice guy and one of your own but he is not a Premier League manager and should not have been given an extension on his contract until you were in a stable position. If he has the best interests of the club at heart he should do the right thing.


3.) 11 Dec 2019 15:00:04
Nuno was not a premiership manager, so that carries no credence at all.
Most managers of premiership clubs have no experience whatsoever of that division, you learn it and grow into it, as did Alex Ferguson, as did Arsene Wenger, do you want me to carry on?
Come back in 12 months mate, maybe everything will have settled down by then.


4.) 11 Dec 2019 16:35:26
Dave, wolves fans don't have a derby rival in the premier league and most villa fans are totally indifferent to them, we only have one true rival and small heath don't count at the moment. So let the yam yams have their say and treat it as insignificant as it is.


5.) 11 Dec 2019 18:33:12
Yeah your probably right scotty, they do your bloody head in.
I think its the limited intelligence.
Have done some research, apparently its all down to the lack of vitamins in groaty pudding.


6.) 14 Dec 2019 17:52:36
sack the blind scout who told deno that he'd found a brazilian 'gem'! i don't think we need another winger, trex and el ghazi are good enough, even though neither could cross a road, mcginn is utterly knackered. eric dier is rumoured to be available, i think he would do a better job right in the middle. the boy pione sisto who was almost signed looks cracker. nakamba and luiz can't both play at the same time i think 'our jack will go this time, he won't stay forever off load weskey, taylor, green, nyland, kalanic, elmo.


 

 

08 Dec 2019 22:26:15
So we can see that the long ball from Heaton to Wes is not working, so any coach with any nous would have a rethink. Do did it happen, no it didn't. So we have the ball and we give it straight back, not once but for the entire game. So is it the coach who is not good enough or the players or both. McGinn needs a rest, Jack can't keep taking three players on, it doesn't work. So Deano should see what everyone else sees, if it's not working change it. It seems to me that Deano can't adapt when things aren't working. Wes is not our attacking option, if we don't adapt or change things soon we are going down.

Earlier you made a comment about chris an I having some sort of notion about our current situation.
You made that remark, why not answer my reply, I replied to you.
You make smart remarks, at least have the decency to reply.
You sound like you are implying we know it all.
That`s what makes your posts a tad annoying mate, you complain and then leave it to fester.
Back up what you are saying, instead of complaining about all and sundry, come up with some constructive ideas.

Let's not get too down, Chris and Dave will tell us how wonderful things still are.

I take it you mean me Scotty, and I will ignore the smug content of your post Scotty.
There is no excuses with today`s performance, we were very poor, and I must congratulate Leicester they are a very good side indeed, and they made us look very ordinary.

Dave I think you need to look at the replays for the last four games, there are defensive mistakes in every game. If you can't attack and can't defend you haven't got a prayer of winning games.
