  1. Re: The Race to reach 90 - Edition #3

    fixed good spot' date=' sorry VillaKnollBoy lincvillian already picked him pick again.

    Also guys can we keep it to mentioning only names that have ALREADY been said, its gettihng confusing for people making their picks when you lot or going on about your scouting in here mentioning names. :D[/quote']

    No worries, will have another scout around and get back to you.

  2. 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!

  3. Re: Official Aston Villa Thread ! * no spoilers *

    Quick ask.

    Do any of you lot want Lambert sacked' date=' theres loads of disgruntled fans about.

    I dont, I dont know what the hell they expect!!

    Performances as of late havent been good, infact they have been poor but jesus christ.[/quote']

    We knew it was a long term plan when Lambert took the role on, to throw that away after 18 months would be pointless.

    We certainly need a playmaking midfielder in the transfer window and Vlaar has to return as soon as possible, the difference he makes to the defence is there for all to see.

  4. Re: Liga BBVA Ratings Predictions thread

    RODRÍGUEZ' date='[b'] José[/b]

    should i keep him? has a bright future ahead of him?

    i saw he plays for the Spain U21 NT but he doesnt get play time at Real

    and i dont think he will rise

    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.


  5. Re: Serie A Rating Predictions

    I can get Kevin Strootman' date=' or Ilkay Gundogan. I know both are world class players, but which do you think will rise this december/january?


    Agree with the two previous posters, Gundogan for me also. Should make the German WC squad and Dortmund will hopefully make the latter stages of the Champions League.

  6. Re: Official Aston Villa Thread ! * no spoilers *

    Looks like we've got five at the back today. Probably won't be a game for the purists :P

    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.


  7. 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.

  8. Re: Official Aston Villa Thread ! * no spoilers *

    So I went to Luton/cesspit to watch one of the worst games of football I've ever seen and us lose 2-0 to a non league team.

    And currently we're 4-1 up on Crewe. Brilliant :rolleyes:

    Great turnout there though. Over 1700 Villains there! Good to see Tekkers amongst the goals too. Hat trick so far. Weimann with the other

    Watched on AVTV' date=' Bacuna looks particularly useful in midfield or at right back. Great strike for his goal.[/color']

  9. 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+.
