    Delfouneso

    Villa are in the sh1t and Delfonso needs to be a option for us.
    We know he is not the next Van Basten but he has shown some promise

    Add this to team selection and substitutions and it all adds up to not making much sense to me

    Downing---Man Utd

    I have said the same thing about Downing for years.................He has games where he is mustard (as he was in spells on Saturday). You look at him and think, how can he not be a nailed on England player, head hunted for a top 4 club.

    Then you see him and think, hmm, flatters to decieve and did precious little for about 6 games in a row..................So if Man U want to pay a nice wedge for him.....................Bye Bye from me, with a smile

    Squad Rotation

    Sod squad rotation. You have to try and win things, just like Birmingham have. If we go down, or Birmingham, then we would have anyway. And it's not as though the rest of March is jam packed with game after game is it!

    I have no doubt though that club owners tell the manager that they musn't risk injury in domestic cup games, as the Prem survival is worth much more money. It has nothing to do with glory............it's fukc the domestic cups, they are only worth going for if we are safe and mid-table. Even UEFA Cup isn't worth bothering with if an injury you MIGHT (or might not!), het costs you Prem sirvival....................Was it Bolton who had qualified for Europe and had progressed some way in the UEFA Cup but then fielded a bag of sh1ite team, in order to save players for relegation battle games?......................I mean, how often do clubs like Bolton get to give their fans a classic european night, and just throw it away!

    Only money matters now..............The fans needs and glory come a poor second to chasing the money

  • I think I must have got the answer wrong at my local pub.

    The question was. What does "Niggling" mean?

    After being thrown out of the pub, I take it "A little back baby", isn't the right answer!

    Not nice to be involved in the fight but the relegation battle is very intriging to say the least. So many teams that could go down, W ham coming into form witht heir 1st back to back Prem wins all season, W Brom winning the old 6 pointer, Villa contriving to lose a game we should have buried etc etc..................And Brum winning a cup and slipping into the bottom 3. They have games in hand but not the points in the bag!!!!

    Who do you think will go down?

    Wigan. Wolves and Blackpool are my guess

    What's that stench on the board????

    Oh well, I must have trod in something!

    3 points thrown away today................game should have been buried way before the end! Good job he rested the squad for this game?

    I think that about sums both teams up Nig.

    I think Brum might even finish higher, as they have a great work ethic. I'm not saying Villa are shirkers but for me, Brum work harder

    Has he been given enough 1st team time to establish his stamp on the team?

    I know British players should settle quicker, but it's not always the case

    I think MON was a manager who could over achieve with a squad...............IMO, Villa knocking on the door of 4th with the 'Squad', was a case in point................................But yes, i agree that when dissected, MON's transfer history at Villa leaves you wondering what all the fuss about him is.

    If Villa are looking for a new manager in the near future.....it may not be a popular choice.................But i would like Dave Jones

    I just posted a 'Well Done' message on the Brum board, before reading this thread about not wishing you well..............So i think your jumping the gun a bit. I'll forgive that as your probably still on cloud 9 after a great performance.

    For me, as a neutral........................A good final to watch would be nice.

    The fact Bent didn't get serviced with quality crosses and other passages of play, begs the question.............Are we planning to spend and REAL money on other areas, or are all our eggs in one basket?

    What worries me is......................Is there any money left or is a nothing other than a panic buy to score enough goals to stay up and don't bother addressing the other issues on the pitch?

    Is Bent a player I would like to see at Villa?................Suppose so, he's certainly a good player on his day.

    Do I want him if the price is 19 million, rising to 24 million..........Absolutely NO WAY!

    Villa, (i thought) have not got that kind of money to spend...............Or if they have, are they going to spend the whole lot, on ONE PLAYER?

    It's not even the right area on the pitch to strengthen, if you only spend the money on one area of the pitch!

    And if there is more money to spend...............Why let MON go, when you could have given MON the cash and not Houlier?

    OK MON did buy some crap and some average players like Curtis Davis (not crap but not worth the money he cost), Petrov (just don't like him and Warnock..............But i would sooner the cash was for MON and not Houllier

    That's all it seems to be....Half hearted attempts!

    We are also interested in Blackpool's Charlie Adam? Not seen too much of him to be honest but the 3.5 million we have bid was scorned at by Holloway...............He said something like, "If you think I am going to sell Adam for that price, you are stroking the wrong dog and barking up the wrong tree"................Great
