Villa
Garde out, Yorke in? perhaps not. 

18 Mar 16

God, you’re lucky.


Villa
Almstadt gone; more to follow, surely? And banners out on 74. 

17 Mar 16

I know, I’m behind the loop in commenting on this story, but it’s been for a reason, as I’ve been thinking about why we’ve sacked him at this particular time.


Villa
Villa 0 – 2 Spurs; Rubbish 

13 Mar 16

Just when you thought things couldn’t get any worse, so they probably did today.


Villa
Villa – Spurs; A foregone conclusion? 

13 Mar 16

So we were at work yesterday evening and our crew nipped outside for a coffee and a smoke, where the talk turned to footy.


Villa
Villa accounts/losses; Shocking…. Or are they? 

11 Mar 16

There’s some decent news coming out about the Villa lately and it’s another subject where I just need to stick my two bob’s worth in.


Villa
Who’ll stay and who’ll go? and the Prem agree a £30 cap for away fans. 

10 Mar 16

Reading the news, it seems that the speculation has moved on from “if the Villa go down” to “what’ll happen when they do?” And it’s a fair question, seeing as the odds for us staying up are probably on a…


Villa
The city game, Garde out-Bruce in and other depressing thoughts. 

8 Mar 16

Sorry if you are really coming Steve, it’s only a joke, honest As is often the case these days, I had to work and missed the Man City game.


Villa
City v Villa Preview 

5 Mar 16

Well I hate to say I told you all so but…! As you will have noticed I have been mercifully quiet lately simply as I really don’t care anymore.


Villa
A major divide in the camp and Remi nearly walked after the Everton game 

4 Mar 16

It just goes from bad to worse doesn’t it? The Telegraph has come out with an article which suggests there is a major split amongst the players.


Villa
Culprits to be sacked, the everton game and the walkout 

3 Mar 16

I’ll do the Everton game first and while it wasn’t quite what I predicted, I don’t think I was too far off the mark in suggesting that our big problem would be the defence.


Villa
Villa – Everton; Yet another tough one. and the protest 

1 Mar 16

What happened to the days where we used to be able to look at a game and a prediction would involve one of three choices, in win, draw or lose? They seem so distant and every way I try and look at a game these days, it’s hard to get …


Villa
Stoke 2 – 1 Villa; Same old, same old 

28 Feb 16

I could have written this yesterday after watching the game, but to be honest, I just couldn’t be bothered.


Villa
Stoke – Villa; Another shoeing? and a POLL 

27 Feb 16

After the debacle that was the Liverpool game, it’s yet again difficult to see us getting much against Stoke isn’t it? Confidence is probably rock bottom right now and Remi Garde has commented on how he’s finding it difficult…


Villa
Are the Villa hated? and Remi talks about commitment 

26 Feb 16

“Nath” asked what our views are about how outsiders perceive Aston Villa as a club and I’m happy to chuck my tuppence worth in.


Villa
Ellis blames the players; what a surprise 

25 Feb 16

So while Doug Ellis had a tiny dig at the board and Randy Lerner, he has basically blamed the players for our poor performance this season .


Villa
The kids beat the first team and the 74th minute walkout. 

23 Feb 16

These are not new stories, I know, but I’ve been busy and have only just read them.


Villa
Ignore this, Mr Lerner 

19 Feb 16

I’ve just come across an interesting article.


Villa
Garde Looking to pick a new 11

After the humiliating defeat to Liverpool over the weekend, Remi Garde has hinted that he would select a starting 11 of players that actually want to be on the pitch.


Villa
Villa – Pool; revisited. 

15 Feb 16

So I’m home now and just as I said I would, I thought I’d offer my thoughts on the performance yesterday after having had a bit of a cooling off period.


Villa
Villa 0 – 6 Liverpool; disgusted and totally ashamed to be a Villa fan today 

14 Feb 16

It’s only a short one, because I’m in the airport on my way home at the moment.


Villa
Villa – Liverpool: Can we win? 

13 Feb 16

As we all know, there are no easy games in the Premier league and this is about as tough as they come, even though we’re at home.


Villa
Belated Happy days; A win! and thoughts on the manager. 

8 Feb 16

I spent literally four or five hours on Sunday, trying to post something saying how chuffed I was that we’d got another win, but I had to concede defeat against the chronic internet over here.


Villa
Villa – Norwich; A must win? 

6 Feb 16

Having just had a glance at our remaining fixtures, you have to say this is probably the most winnable game we have left.


Villa
Merv the swerve comes on board; Why? 

4 Feb 16

So why do I call him Merv the swerve? Well, my opinion says he did a very decent job of getting around any serious questions when defending bankers in the crisis, whilst actually achieving very little in the scheme of things, the obvious QE…


Villa
West ham – Villa; Preview 

2 Feb 16

So after all the lack of activity in the transfer window, it seems we have a game tonight.


Villa
The transfer window; A damp squib and will Garde walk? 

2 Feb 16

So that’s it then, not a single player signed in a window that has to rank as the worst ever for Aston Villa FC.


Villa
Villa 0 – 4 Man City; The aftermath 

31 Jan 16

Judging by the crowd, which was around 23,500 minus 6,000 Citeh fans, it seems that my appreciation of the FA cup isn’t shared amongst the Villa fans in general.


Villa
Villa 0 City 4 

30 Jan 16

Well it was pretty much the hammering we all expected.


Villa
Villa – Man City FA Cup: Pressure off for this one? 

30 Jan 16

I’ve just read a story that suggests that City will be bringing five of their kids as part of their squad for this game.


Villa
News? What news? 

28 Jan 16

I’ve got to be honest, there’s nothing really going on, is there? It’s mainly more about players leaving than coming in and the truth is it makes sense that we get rid of the over-paid and under-used players like N’…


Villa
Albion 0 – 0 Villa; Tedious and ultimately not good enough 

23 Jan 16

Well, that wasn’t pretty, was it? I’m struggling to think of a more boring game and given that we’ve experienced plenty of them over the last few years, that’s saying something.


Villa
Albion – Villa; 

23 Jan 16

If I take my positive and negative heads off, I just don’t know how to call this one.


Villa
Players Leaving, But Garde Struggling to Recruit Anyone 

21 Jan 16

This January window was meant to be a desicive turning point for Villa, bringing in fresh players, who may have Premier League experience who can help Villa escape relegation.


Villa
The board will decide on transfers; Oh yes, who’s that then? and transfer speculation 

21 Jan 16

I couldn’t let this one go without comment, as it’s just laughable in my opinion.

19 Jan 16

Try as I might, I’m struggling to keep my interest in the FA cup alive at the moment, as much as I appreciate it for what it is.

Villa 1-0 Palace; Pardew’s words really encouraging

Villa
My stance on Remi Garde and abuse 

10 Jan 16

Ok, I’ve been reflecting on my calling for Garde’s head yesterday and come to realise that I was probably wrong in taking that stance.


Villa
Wycombe 1 – 1 Villa; Garde out. Yes, even this early. 

9 Jan 16

There are a couple of things I’ve learned about our players this season.


Villa
FA cup: Wycombe vs Villa….Surely we can win this one? 

9 Jan 16

I have absolutely no faith in the Villa getting a win when we’re facing Premier league opposition lately, but surely we can beat a League two team, can’t we? I wouldn’t be so sure.


Villa
Player updates 

8 Jan 16

We have some decent news to talk about, at last.


Villa

There’s been very little to write about and the only thing that has been really noticeable for me is that we haven’t moved quickly to bring any players in.


Villa
Sunderland 3 – 1 Villa; that’s exactly why we’re going down

Questions about our beloved Villa

Villa
Norwich 2 – 0 Villa; Is this the end?

Newcastle 1 – 1 Villa; a better performance, but not enough

Garde isn’t messing about with non-comitted players

Villa
Thoughts after the Arsenal loss and the news in the aftermath. 

15 Dec 15

Okay, so upon reflection I’ve realised that we never had a hope in hell of getting anything against Arsenal on Sunday, just the same as we haven’t done when playing them at home, for ages.


Villa
Villa 0 – 2 Arsenal; another game of two halves 

13 Dec 15
