Re: Back From The Match - Preston

Same number of points and better goal difference than after 4 games last season and same points and slightly better goal difference to the corresponding 4 fixtures last season. I think it's a bit early to be pissing our knickers and writing off the season just yet. Interesting comparison. Newcastle...

Re: Redknapp / Birmingham

Every cloud has a silver lining, they sent Villa bottom.

In fairness to Redknapp, the squad he's inherited isn't that great, they've got a massive injury list and he's struggling to bring players in. Not sure I'd want to go there if I was a player. The club's a basket case.

Think you might have missed it being a double substitution, Evans and McCleary on for Joey and Popa.

Re: Pure Spaculation - Nick Blackman

I'd rather sign Honor Blackman.

Yes, he had a 6 week spell where everything he hit went in but that was preceded by a 30 month spell where he looked like a one legging man trying to kick himself in the arse.

Re: Players you'd like us to sign thread

Yeah, there's a number of reasons why no-one in the Championship has taken a punt on Madden. But mainly it's because in his one spell in the championship he scored a massive 0 goals in 4 months prompting his manager to drop him and put him on the transfer list, publicly stating he was a lazy bastard...

Re: Players you'd like us to sign thread

Bogle might be ok as an option off the bench. Doesn't McGoldrick have a reputation for being lazy and disruptive? Also, 1 in 4 (80 in 320, 31 in 112 at Ipswich) hardly inspires confidence. Blackman simply isn't good enough.

Re: Weekend Football

Don't get me wrong, disallowing the goal was a very poor decision but it was a textbook example of simulation; leave both legs dragging as you go past the defender and fall over despite there being clear daylight between the two of you, safe in the knowledge that from the ref's position it would loo...

Re: Players you'd like us to sign thread

Seeing as the theme on this thread is to pick a completely random forward from a middling team in a western European league, I give you Fred Friday of AZ,

I know nothing about him other than he plays in Holland and his goalscoring record in Norway wasn't completely shit.

Justice done. Never a free kick in the first place, it was a blatant dive.

Re: Rumour - Leandro Bacuna

Pretty much and he's hampered with Villa having not really had his own position. His attacking stats came out much clearer with Groningen, but less data was available and it's a different league. Given the fact a lot of that is in the Prem, in a side which was progressively getting worse and not in...

Re: Rumour - Leandro Bacuna

I've done a quick look at Bacuna v Williams - comes with a health warning that Bacuna has been used across multiple positions, so a direct comparison may not apply. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DG9PTxFWAAQWxhv.jpg:small By the looks of that, Williams is slightly better going forward, Bacuna slightly...

Re: Rumour - Leandro Bacuna

If anyone's interested there's a 250 page thread over on villa talk about him. It doesn't make pretty reading, and I only read the last 10. Strikes me that Villa fans are a bunch of entitled cockwombles. Obviously thought they'd walk the league and are struggling to come to terms with their new fou...

Re: Rumour - Omar Bogle

I've seen his price being quoted in the region of £800,000. He's big, strong and quick, I could see him working as an impact sub, like Le Fondre or Manset.

Judging by his reaction on Saturday after scoring, he's clearly not happy starting on the bench.

Re: CONFIMRED - Cooper to wall

Technique is probably the wrong word, there's a certain skill set that you need to play a patient possession game and the ability to maintain concentration is pretty fundamental.

Re: CONFIMRED - Cooper to wall

Precisely, none of the evidence suggests Stam's sitting there, struggling with team selection and wishing he had muskrat's phone number. The question has never been whether Cooper is good enough to establish himself as a Championship centre back, it has always been about whether he is technically go...
