  1. From a Villa point of view I'll take that result all day long. Already two points up on last season's equivalent fixtures. As for the game? Sheffield United defended like trojans, I'm not sure why anybody was expecting us to tear them apart after the red card because if they are known for one thing then it's for being extremely organised and had, what, the fourth best defence in the Premier League last season? Penalty aside (and it was at most a "seen em given" level award) we looked comfortable. Martiez projects composure and confidence, Konsa is looking like another pl
  2. Another summer of activity in the transfer market then, we’ve quietly spent £75m on new players so far. I really like Watkins, some people think £28m is too much but it seems half a dozen clubs were in for him which drove the price up. I don’t know too much about Cash and Martinez but the reaction of Forest and Arsenal fans to them moving on gives me hope. Traore announced today, I’ve got reservations on that one as he seems to promise more then he delivers. Grealish extending is something I’d half expected as we were going to have to offer him the money he’d get elsewhere. I’m confident w
  3. I know I’m not the first, but may the fleas of a thousand camels forever infest the pubic hair of whoever decided to not include an option to invert the camera.
  4. You can have ours if you want. Iberian and has lived in the West Midlands for several years now so he'll probably understand everybody's accent and know not to take the Hagley Road at rush hour if he needs to be at training on time. Obviously he won't play very much because he's too slow for the Premier League, but he'll save a load of replica shirts from being ruined.
  5. Usual question at the start of the season with regards to the leagues dominated by one club: Who will be the next team other than PSG to win Ligue 1? Who will be the next team other than Juventus to win Serie A? Who will be the next team other than Bayern Munich to win the Bundesliga? I can't see anything other than PSG walking the French league even though they lost their opening two fixtures, and as Bayern have just beaten Schalke 8-0 in their opening fixture tonight I suspect it's gonna be business as usual in Germany too. Maybe Inter or someone will
  6. You'd hope that the club has tested everybody who will be on the pitch or the game should be off. Schools cannot guarantee everybody gets tested but a football club should have the means to do so.
  7. They’ll still walk the league.
  8. I don’t think they have updated it with his new salary but the bot at What Bale Earns seems to think Gareth has picked up about £124.4m since he signed for Madrid.
  9. Wanna feel old because it’s not half a decade. I remember watching Aguero’s debut for Manchester City with my week old son in my arms. He’s nine now. Oh, and Villa confirm Martinez in from Arsenal on a four year deal. Think that takes our spending up to about £70m plus a big fat pay rise for Grealish. I do wonder when Martinez is going to get a serious injury though. We’ve lost three keepers to season ending injuries since 2018.
  10. I know it's only the League Cup, but it's Villa's opening game of the 2020/21 season as our Premier League fixture was postponed at the weekend. Grealish signed a new contract today and then plays a pass with so much disguise on it that Neil Taylor doesn't even realise where the ball has gone for a couple of seconds before he squares it to Ollie Watkins for a debut goal. Jack does another one of those volley's from a corner that he seems to be almost as good at doing as Paul Scholes was. Decent day all round.
  11. The Man City win not long after seemed to cause a lot of pundits who don't really watch teams in the bottom half of the table to make their mind up after a month and not revise that opinion until they were most of the way through the ten game losing streak at the end of the season. My lot (Villa) had a similar narrative from opening weekend until Xmas. We were playing well and losing a lot and people within Villa fan circles and outside were also using the "if we play like this every week we will be alright" card despite the really worrying fact that not many points were actually
  12. Haven’t played in a week or so, fired it up today and went to find Godhome, get Unbreakable Greed then went to face Hollow Knight himself.
  13. Yet half the chat knew instantly?
  14. Yep. It’s not that they did it, is that they did it after spending an entire show in June saying they wouldn’t do it.
  15. So the whole “we’ll try harder when it comes to booking podcast guests” thing lasts about three months then.
  16. When do Chelsea expect to be in serious title contention? The signings look great on paper but I’d expect one of Liverpool or Manchester City to post another 90+ point season and Chelsea are going to have to add 20-25 points to their recent tallies to even stand a chance of winning the league. Is this part of a longer term project because I just can’t see them making those kind of strides in a year and I doubt Abramovich wants to spend that kind of money just to stand still.
  17. Ah. It’s because the really ugly bit is cropped out of the photo.
  18. Tbh we should just hire whoever does Brentford’s recruiting. They always seem to be able to flip players for huge profits and keep a decent team together.
  19. Villa have apparently agreed a £28m fee for Ollie Watkins, potentially rising to £33m. Best player in The Championship last season, but it’s a lot of money for a guy who has never played top flight football.
  20. I mean it bounces first so it’s a half volley but football isn’t tennis so it’s all semantics. He fairly hits the leather* off of a ball in mid air. *polyurethane.
  21. Haaland, managing to look like Brienne of Tarth in the thumbnail, has absolutely torn Northern Ireland to shreds tonight. Worth watching the highlights just for his volley.
  22. speaking of Portugal, how the hell was this only 4-1? It looked like an absolute annihilation.
  23. I see the people who play FM are going nuts over this. It’s a lot of money for a guy who has barely played a dozen first team appearances.
  24. White Palace was kicking my arse, thought I’d finish off the grub collecting and get the final charm. A couple of them in Crystal Peak are tricky but I got them, headed off to claim my prize and it turned out there’s still one left in the Royal Waterways. Decided to go into the temple to see the big man. Unlocked
