Re: BFTG Villa

Dave Edwards has come out with a public apology on Twitter following his red card last night. Fair play to him for doing so.

Re: Ray Wilkins RIP

Always came across as one of the really good guys in the game. Enjoyed listening to him as a pundit or on co-commentary. He'll be a big loss. RIP.

Re: BFTG Villa

Also I had to laugh, that wonder strike which broke the deadlock was exactly that. The same lad had 4 or 5 long shots throughout the game and every single one was row z, apart from the one which almost went out for a throw. So for him to hit it first time so sweetly into the top corner was a bit an...

Steve Bruce said in his post match interview on Radio WM, that his stats guy said to him at half time Villa had put 30 crosses into the box, so I can well believe it was 50+ at full time

Re: BFTG Villa

Didn't go last night, but from I read it seemed it was Snodgrass' delivery that was the difference between the teams. With the talent Villa had upfront, any half decent ball in the box would cause most teams problems. Given it was against 10 men dont think anyone can be surprised or even over react...

BFTG Villa

Well that was a bit of an odd game. At 0-0 with 11 men we looked like being competitive, albeit set up to keep it tight and play for 0-0 and hitting on the break. Edwards sending off I thought was a little harsh, the first was a justified yellow (sliding through the back of a man on the counter atta...

Re: European Leagues Thread 2012/2013

Napoli only manage a draw against Sassuolo meaning Juve go 4 points clear with 8 left to go after they beat AC Milan. Top 2 due to play each other in 3 weeks time so it could be overturned but in recent weeks Napoli haven't looked like the team they were in the first half of the season I'm going on...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Aston Villa (a) sponsored by a night out in the Midlands

Pretty wet in Brum yesterday, but dry this morning, so shouldn't be any issues with the game being on tonight. Probably a night for the long studs though.

Re: Rival Watch

I don't like how the efforts on goal include blocked shots . how the hell can that be counted? it`s so misleading. when it shows onscreen on sky it doesn`t count blocks, take away the 15 QPR had and we are down to 12 efforts on goal. thats why it was so misleading when it said Brentford has 28 shot...

Conversely we got held up in traffic coming down from Brum for this one, arrived at our seats 20 minutes into the game. Pleasantly surprised to hear it was still 0-0 when we got in, then got to watch the carnage. Also another one where got stuck in traffic and got in to the car park to hear the firs...

Re: New Manager Press Conference 12pm today

From the position we're in, we should just need a bit of tightening up at the back and that should be enough to get us over the line I think. The new appointment plus the return of Elphick should be what the defensive line needs. Going forwards I think it's just a confidence issue, get the midfielde...

Hopefully Popa will be given a fair chance, and I guess we should see more of Novakovitch given his performances this year as well
