    This article is the sort of propaganda and rubbish the official website comes out with.
    The club is not heading in any direction, it’s just a pathetic waste of time and space, owned by a perennial loser who inherited his dad’s fortune, ran by a bumbling buffoon of a CEO and managed by a mumbling berk who can’t even speak properly, yet alone manage, when there are several intelligent non-British managers out there.
    Stop clinging to some sort of long term hope, even taking the useless Lamberk out of the equation, Lerner achieved ZERO with the browns, in 7 and a half years at Villa he has achieved ZERO. History dictates nothing but more misery and failure, just ask the Browns fans that celebrated his departure.

    id agree bws, everton are doing brilliant this season although I expect the wheels to start coming off soon, reckon they will end up outside the top 4 by the end of the season. I also may expect them to struggle next season by comparison as 3 of their current starting line up at the moment aren’t actually everton players and will be gone come next season and with evertons spending power they will be difficult to replace.
    as for spurs considering the money they’ve spent a CL place is a must, again I cant see this happening, they cant seem to beat any of the teams around them, top four/6. possibly 120million for a Europa spot, oh dear 😀

    Bang on comment from Shite Future at the top, This “end of the transitional period” is bullshit. The end of the transitional period was this season when he (Lambert) established a first team (for this season) all of his own signings and all remaining high earners from previous managers were thrown into the “bomb squad”.

    Our football is worse this year and we have added zero quality to an already zero quality team, considering Benteke is not at full pace. The only reason we are where we are in the table is because it’s the worst PL season I’ve ever witnessed, it’s a totally dire season to follow and the teams below us are absolute shite bar Swansea, and we’re still not clear of them by a long chalk.

    Lose tomorrow, or even draw tbh and we’re firmly back in the relegation scrap (we kind of are already). I wish we were away tomorrow in all honesty. Wet Spam will come and put 11 bodies behind the ball and ‘park the bus’ and play counter and I can see them nicking a win.

    Tomorrows game is the biggest game of the season for us so far, 3 points is a must.

    Lambert out!

    Oh, good morning!

    interesting i understand the feeling ~ but it reminds me of the film kellys heros
    “Have a little faith baby, have a little faith.” was one
    and Always with the negative waves Moriarty, ALWAYS with the negative waves!
    come summer, if promises aren’t met, then like BWS says wot can we do NOTHING
    but iam with langfordvilla and badger123, i think the dead wood has mostly gone.the squad has depth and now needs the quality, plus this season signings improve.

    we need 2 rally this season, cos we need 2 stay innit (prem) hammers will try 2 park the bus and we struggle with teams that do this simple but affective tactic

    Don’t get me wrong – most of the football we’ve seen from Villa this season has been shocking, but I don’t think we’re too many signings away from having a good side. The ones I would keep from the current set up are:

    Guzan
    Bacuna Okore Vlaar Bertrand
    Delph ????
    ????
    Agbonlahor Weimann
    Benteke

    6 of those players were signed by Lambert (if you count re-signing Guzan and Bertrand on loan). Don’t really think Bacuna is a right back, but hasn’t really been given a decent shot in the attacking midfield role yet. Albrighton has also looked good when he’s played, but would be better employed in a 4-4-2 system with wingers. Weimann has been disappointing, but he does have pace and is a good finisher. Might be better off playing him as a central attacker rather than a wide player.

    Others that could still come good are – Lowton, Westwood, Sylla, N’Zogbia. Haven’t really seen Helenius or Gardner. Kozak didn’t blow my mind, but his goal ratio was pretty good.

    Have been most disappointed with Baker, Luna and Clark this season. Clark has improved quite a bit from last season though, where he was simply a liability. Baker has gone down hill massively, but possibly still has potential. El Ahmadi I’m still not convinced about, but he has also improved this season.

    I do think there is a platform there to build from. Is Lambert the right person to do this? I’m going to take a lot more convincing yet, as some of his tactics have been woeful.

    However, if we can get Okore back fit and on form, sign Bertrand and possibly a solid right back, bring in a decent holding midfielder with a bit of physicality and an attacking midfielder with a bit of flair, I think we’d have a good looking side.

    even if the post is correct we will just be spending to get maybe 8th every season if that. Do we really want the cesspit that is Chumps league minor which for English clubs destroys their season ? (Ask fulham, swansea and Newcastle) as the squad is never big enough.

    If Lerner spends it will be £20M again but say on 2/3 players but that only gets you a 8-10th position, have the ambitions fell THAT low that people are happy with an Owner like that ?

Right or Wrong? What do YOU think?
