My Mother who was born in Manchester was always a Man U fan, unfortunately put me off footie for life.  Shall I leave now or later.  Two of my Brother in laws were always having punch ups, usually verbal, every Saturday night as one supported the Blues and the other Villa, what fun that was.

: Re: ASTON VILLA
: townie January 07, 2018, 01:43:35 PM
That's what you get for playing a weakened side thinking because they are in a lower division you are going to win. I would like to see all teams that try this get their just deserved.


: Re: ASTON VILLA
: GardenGerald January 07, 2018, 02:14:13 PM

Hello Boys
Townie you are right, how long will he last in this new job.I do not joke when I say some of us lads on this

Get the ball in the net.

: Re: ASTON VILLA
: Edifi January 20, 2018, 08:57:23 PM
What happenswhen they score a couple of goals they always seem to say lets sit on what we have and start to ease up .They never seem to go for the kill

: Re: ASTON VILLA
: townie April 03, 2018, 05:39:11 PM
Ron Saunders resigned from Villa on 9 February 1982, due to a disagreement with the board over his contract.


: Re: ASTON VILLA
: Edifi April 03, 2018, 06:21:55 PM
I beg to differ townie,it was about buying players to keep up the impetus and win the League title again.But Doug would not go with it ,he wanted to hold onto the money,he wanted to keep the shareholders happy.


: Re: ASTON VILLA
: Edifi April 03, 2018, 06:26:49 PM
Gerald hope they don't get promotion they are still not strong enough.Would hate to have to go through relegation battle again,it would make so many people unhappy again.


: Re: ASTON VILLA
: GardenGerald April 29, 2018, 12:42:40 PM
Hello
Aston Villa in the play offs. I'm not sure they will get promoted,
I think not reliable enough. But I hope they do.
Gerald


: Re: ASTON VILLA
: townie April 29, 2018, 08:59:47 PM
Gerald. I will be realistic, I don't think Aston Villa are good enough for the premiership.


: Re: ASTON VILLA
: Edifi May 01, 2018, 08:53:06 AM
Think you might possibly be right Townie .

Breaking News
In the world cup Aston Villa have been drawn to play
Inkerman Street.
Will they win Ed or will your safe hands keep them
at bay. Plenty of Muscle Ache rub on your body and

Saved 2penaltys in a cup final once we won 3-1 .Inkerman St Wanderers would wipe the floor with this feeble lot they've got down there at the moment.Wish we had the Blues Manager at Villa Park

: Re: ASTON VILLA

Will the manager be leaving, I think he should. Something was not right in
the last season. Very up and down.
Gerald.


: Re: ASTON VILLA
: Edifi June 01, 2018, 04:39:08 PM
Gerald in the papers yesterday,the chairman was not very happy with Bruce.Said he had to make cut backs to save 66 million.What a way to run a business.What if you had to get rid of your lads to save money. Top players want thousands a week but if you can't afford to pay that bring on the good kids.See Man Unt are interested in Grealish.Another good one going,it'll go towards the 66 million saved.Daughter said for the first 1/2 hour they looked like they won't end to win then went of the boil when Fulham scored.Therell be some difficult matches next season.


: Re: ASTON VILLA
: GardenGerald June 08, 2018, 03:24:18 PM
Will the Villa get out of troubled waters.
Gerald.


: Re: ASTON VILLA
: Edifi June 08, 2018, 04:16:24 PM
Gerald just found out they owed 6 million in income tax,sacked the CEO and paid of 5 hundred 000.1million next week to be paid out of the 13 million for what known as the parachute pay out for being in the Championship Lge for the second year.It seems the owner asent put as much money in as we thought.A consortium of 6 want to buy him out so my daughter has been told from someone in the know at the Villa.


: Re: ASTON VILLA
: Edifi June 27, 2018, 07:56:54 PM
Villa news today,made a loss of 40 million last year,every player up for sale,owner says they are in trouble.It ain't cost him a lot with all the millions fro mthe F A and TV and Advertising only the wages virtually.Wheres all the money he was surprised to be putting into the club.Boot him out quickly.Meet me in Brum Gerald we'll take it on got to be better than the idiots in charge now.


: Re: ASTON VILLA

: Re: ASTON VILLA

: Re: ASTON VILLA
: Edifi June 30, 2018, 10:33:37 PM

: Re: ASTON VILLA
: GardenGerald July 01, 2018, 12:45:50 PM

Where do they go from here.
Gerald.


: Re: ASTON VILLA
: Edifi July 01, 2018, 07:31:37 PM
According to the papers today,if they don't hurry up and sort things out there's a chance they could go into Administration.Hes trying to find someone to buy the club,but still wants to be in charge,( what an idiot ).Havent heard anymore about the consortium who want to buy.He says the club is costing him 6million a month,so is putting up the price of the season tickets what a laugh.My dad and F in L would cry in their Ale if they knew.Take care Ed.


: Re: ASTON VILLA
: GardenGerald July 03, 2018, 11:31:47 AM
Hello Ed
If this nonsense at the Villa goes on much longer the club
will close down. The man that owns it has got to wake up.
Gerald


: Re: ASTON VILLA
: Edifi July 19, 2018, 02:01:18 PM
Gerald,all the good players they had on loan last year have all gone.The keepers gone too the Albion ,the lad who scored all the goals on loan from Bournemouth as been sold to another club.Heard nothing more about the consortium who were going to make a bid to get him out.My daughter was supposed to meet the top executive this week on Monday but he was sacked last week.Ah Well.Take care and keep  watering.Thanks for the tip on spraying at night loads and loads of beans.


: Re: ASTON VILLA
: Edifi July 20, 2018, 01:52:10 PM
Gerald,just heard from my daughter,Mr Xia is in talks with people in the Middle East to help him out with the 6million a month wage bill.Only pay them in the football season not in the Summer.Must be the Camel Herders.


: Re: ASTON VILLA
: Edifi July 20, 2018, 04:53:11 PM
Gerald ,Great News The Villa have been bought out by a company owned by an Eygytian Billionaire and partner.The Com is called NWES both are prepared to put in millions to make the club great again..And Brian Little as been elected to the board.But Tony Xia is now chairman.  Good news we hope


: Re: ASTON VILLA
: Edifi July 22, 2018, 09:02:48 AM
Bruce might go in shake up.Thierry Henry who was2 in charge for Belgium in the World Cup is on the radar we hope,might see some attacking football for a change if he comes.


: Re: ASTON VILLA
: GardenGerald July 23, 2018, 02:53:40 PM

: Re: ASTON VILLA
: Edifi July 27, 2018, 01:46:28 PM
Gerald, not Real M but Athletico M.Daughter just phoned says he has been given 7 games to prove he has got it.But it's a long time till next MAY unless he can get some good players to put together a good team


: Re: ASTON VILLA
: Edifi August 04, 2018, 08:34:40 AM
See we are after another goalkeeper ,How many are we going to put on the pitch,that's 5 we've got now


: Re: ASTON VILLA
: Kandor August 04, 2018, 09:40:33 AM
I'm 5 years old and to be honest my whole world back then was a 30 yard ribbon, one mile long, running through the streets of Nechells.
If I'd been up to South Shields, well I can't remember it and besides, anywhere I went from the shops to school, I always travelled holding the hand of an elder brother or sister.

It's a warm Summer's day in 1957 and I'm in the back garden... over the fence I can hear Ivan Eels singing ''Villa! Villa!  VILLA!!!
Ivan is almost 8, he's three years older than me and knows far more about the world than I do.

''What's a Villa then Ivan''? I asked him.

He comes up to our 4ft high fence and peers over it..I can just see his eyes and basin style cut hair.
''It's a football team, MY team'' he tells me ''And they've just won the FA Cup..''

''Oh, ok''

I wander away thinking what's the FA Cup? I've never heard of that either.
I try to find out more from my Dad.

Dad isn't interested in Football but he tries to tell me about the Villa..

Dad say's that ''The Villa'' are a famous football team who have won lots of things...
I ask Dad where they are..he replies they're about a 5 minute walk from my Aunt Eva.

I know where my Aunt Eva lives...well vaguely....Alfred Street by the Park, it's a very long walk ...for a 5 year old anyway.

Dad goes on to tell me that My Uncle Tom is an Aston Villa fan and that's why he was drunk last night...
Uncle Tom is married to Aunt Eva, he's always drunk I thought..

I roll the name around on my tongue..''A..s..t..o..n  V..i..l..l..a''
And that was the first time I can honestly say I'd heard of Aston.



: Re: ASTON VILLA
: Edifi August 04, 2018, 02:04:22 PM
Kandor,hear that name quite a lot,my G/daughters named Aston Alivier( nearest they could get to the Villa)


: Re: ASTON VILLA
: GardenGerald August 04, 2018, 07:40:34 PM
Hello
I was at that football match. From a little boy my Dad would sometimes take me to see The Villa.
Sit me on the rail and put an arm around me.
In those days us boys would do anything o get a few bob because we were paid so little at work
and we had to buy bits and pieces for our studies at work.
I did some jobs for Mr Faber, a top criminal lawyer and he was doing some work for a Mr Ellis.
He got me to do a few jobs for Mr Ellis.
I had said how great it would be to go to Wembley to see the Cup Final. The weekend before Wembly
I was at Mr Fabers and as I left he gave me an envelope. Its from me and Mr Ellis.
It was a ticket and 10 pounds for travel and food.
Mr Ellis was Doug Ellis who bought Aston Villa. I will never forget that day.
Gerald.

Gerald


: Re: ASTON VILLA
: Edifi August 09, 2018, 04:09:30 PM
What about Frank Moss and Rutherford,might have a good defence  again then


: Re: ASTON VILLA
: Edifi August 11, 2018, 09:04:27 AM
Seriously Gerald,I personally think you will see a change in the style of play.Dont think he will play 5 at the back like last season,might go for 4-4-3 or 4-5-2 hopefully.But with all the goalkeepers we have got it might be 5-3-2-1.Ha Ha keep well Ed

: Re: ASTON VILLA
: Edifi August 13, 2018, 04:41:41 PM
WERE GOING UP UP UP.This new lad from Scotland looks a good buy Gerald.A snip at 2;5 million,Gives Grealish a bit more space to roam around.


: Re: ASTON VILLA
: Edifi August 14, 2018, 08:04:54 PM
What has he done.9changes for tonight.The essence of a good team is don't change a winning team.Just look at Man City,how many changes does he make.This man is  an idiot the sooner he goes the better.


: Re: ASTON VILLA
: GardenGerald August 14, 2018, 08:16:33 PM
