  1. Re: Official Aston Villa Thread ! * no spoilers * As has been said, great goal and then backs to the wall for the second half. Defenders and Guzan coped admirably with what Palace threw at them. Okore is very, very decent.
  2. Re: English Premiership Rating Predictions Have you not watched any of Liverpools' games this season? Their defence is shocking.
  3. Re: Official Aston Villa Thread ! * no spoilers * Wouldn't be overly impressed when/if Hoolahan puts pen to paper.
  4. Re: The Race to reach 90 - Edition #3 Jack Grealish, Notts County on loan from Aston Villa please, don't think he has been chosen.
  5. Re: Official Aston Villa Thread ! * no spoilers * Thought the defence looked much more capable with Vlaar back, his importance to us is clear to see. Thought Lowton also did well when Vlaar went off. Benteke played decently, although clearly off the pace having missed so many games. Hopefully get another 90 minutes out of him in the cup at the weekend. A clear improvement all over the pitch from the Swansea game. If we could just get going at home, we could perhaps be looking up the table rather than down it!
  6. Re: Liga BBVA Ratings Predictions thread Came on as a substitute versus Valencia and scored what proved to be the winner. It was his second goal of the season. Might not rise this time around, as he only has just over two hours playing time, having come on in nine matches. Keep.
  7. Re: Official Aston Villa Thread ! * no spoilers * Superb result' date=' with all three goals expertly taken. Imagine what we could do with more than 23% possession! Hoping Vlaars' injury isn't too bad, he has been a rock all season.[/color']
  8. Re: Official Aston Villa Thread ! * no spoilers * I now recall that his injury was to his back. He certainly has the potential to get in the side and with Lambert willing to back youth' date=' he may be given a run in the side in the second half of the season.[/color']
  9. Re: Official Aston Villa Thread ! * no spoilers * Just resumed training after his injury I believe. I forget what his injury was though.
  10. Re: Official Aston Villa Thread ! * no spoilers * Ticket purchased this morning for Craven Cottage next month, cannot wait.
  11. Re: Official Aston Villa Thread ! * no spoilers * It was probably meant to be a back three' date=' but the way City battered us in the first half, I'll grant you it looked more like a back five. Different story in the second half when we took the game by the scruff of the neck, the midfield three were immense. Heading to Hull next week, certainly looking forward to that now, as yesterdays victory should instill a huge amount of confidence in the team. [/color']
  12. Re: Official Aston Villa Thread ! * no spoilers * Hoping for a speedy recovery, Okore has a huge future in my opinion.
  13. Re: Official Aston Villa Thread ! * no spoilers * I think we may have to adjust our tactics for home games, as y/day the 4-3-3 clearly never worked. Luna was getting no help with Ben Arfa, which proved to be our downfall. 4-4-1-1, may be better suited at home, where teams can hit us on the break, as that would provide a bit of cover defensively, while Agbonlahor or Weimann, could spring from the hole behind Benteke. Hoping the injury to Okore isn't too serious, as he looks quite solid in defence, although I would still like to see that first clean sheet in the league for a while.
  14. Re: Official Aston Villa Thread ! * no spoilers * About to commence on a 760 mile round trip for tomorrow nights game! I also did the same for the game last December! So hoping for a decent performance first and foremost, but a decent result wouldn't go amiss also. Happy days. UTV.
  15. Re: Official Aston Villa Thread ! * no spoilers * Add in my 2p worth, I had liked the look of Bacuna in the pre-season friendlies, but he may be a victim of his versatility. I had selected him in a few of my fantasy teams, but he has been changed for Tonev, as he has been getting rave reviews from Lambert and a few of the players.
  16. Re: Official Aston Villa Thread ! * no spoilers * Watched on AVTV' date=' Bacuna looks particularly useful in midfield or at right back. Great strike for his goal.[/color']
  17. Re: Official Bundesliga Discussion Thread They did indeed' date=' Sokratis Papaststhopoulos, 25 year old Greek international.[/font']
  18. Re: Official Aston Villa Thread ! * no spoilers * Lambert is quietly going about his business and picking up decent young talent. Next season should see us certainly looking upwards rather than downwards.
  19. Re: -||Eredivisie Ratings II - 12/13 Winter Predictions Up! - by BRNL||- +2 to day for Clasie and Maher, decent.
  20. Re: Serie A Rating Predictions 2012/13 And still the wait goes on.......
  21. Re: Isco or Oscar I would plump for Isco also, playing in arguably the better league, he is the first name down on the teamsheet for Malaga and also gives the greater goal threat. Although ideally you would get both, as they are certainly destined for 90+.
